I don't know about you, but I don't find people endangering their kids terribly funny.
Jonathan Swift, the 18th century satirist, wrote a book addressing the notions of Malthus and his dire portrayal of population growth. Swift suggested that the food supply needn't ever run out, if grown-ups ate babies.

So, for a Trumpie? To endanger his or her kids? That's a whole open season with open possibilities for satirical fun!

We might want to have a rule for the thread going forward that doesn't include situations where people are clearly endangering kids. There's plenty of examples where covidiots are only really putting themselves at risk (or a partner who's just as foolhardy).

Umm, every covidiot is endangering kids. And why kids specifically? The whole point of lockdown is that we're all in danger.

I know, but "here are photos of kids that could die" is not really in good taste. We have enough material without that!

Oh good, the "you didn't find my joke funny so clearly you just didn't get it" response
Or maybe you didn't get the freaking point, which isn't about children getting sick, it's about entitled dickheads wanting their own way until *shock horror* their actions have personal consequences.

But keep thinking it's about laughing at the expense of those who didn't consent if that's what yanks your crank.

Of course we feel for the kids, they can't choose their idiotic parents. What we could do is remove them from their idiotic parents, there's the proof right up there if it's legit.

Stupidity has consequences, just like voting. Most likely she failed on both fronts.
She should stick to her convictions, "#dontbeparanoid, #notasheep, #wearenotsheep, #strongmind"
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps woman, own that personal responsibility. Pussy

I don’t know. As a Democratic socialist i’m inclined to the notion that the best way to end world hunger and ‘Save the Children’, two birds with one stone as it were, would be, instead, just to serve only these very sorts of adults. I am sure they deserve to be first in line by virtue of their entitlement.

Which is presumably why people are pointing it out.
Pointing out that these people are in fact idiots and that their selfish actions have very real consequences for them and the people around them is possibly the only way left we have to change people's behaviour short of physical coercion.
Showing what happens when you are a selfish, self entitled moron is pretty much a public service at this point.

To prove that she walks the walk she talks, that lady should spend a few unmasked nights out with the kids at one of those many overcrowded hospitals helping our overworked healthcare givers administering treatment to those thousands upon thousands of their fellow citizens who are afflicted with the virus that lady implies she has no fear of.

Might change her defiant attitude a little.
