I was driving to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned today...

...and turned my local AM rightwing radio to see what's up with the nutballs.
Couldn't stand it for more than about a minute, but during that time, the local screamer said:
1) Masks are ineffective. Several times. A hundred years of data says so.
2) The vaccines are ineffective and dangerous... a plot to make money for Big Pharma.
3) The Covid body count is inflated. Maybe 100,000 dead, but probably not even that many.
4) This whole pandemic response is just a worldwide attempt at controlling people. and taking their freedom.
5) We can't trust ANYthing the government tells us about this whole thing. Especially Dr. Fauci. He's making money from the vaccines.

My question: At what point does "free speech" become "yelling fire in a crowded theater"? At what point does this kind of damaging mis-information become too much for our country to bear?

Mini-rant... 538 has Biden at 53.6% approval.... 39.6% disapproval....

Fucking Rasmussen has 47% approval... 51% disapproval.

A Marist/NPR poll shows 84% of Repubs disapprove of the job Biden is doing.

WTAF is wrong with people? (That's a rhetorical question...I KNOW what's wrong with those people.)
