Why Aren’t Leftists “Hysterical About Defecating on the Street?” And Other Views on Coronavirus from Colo Right-Wing Radio

If you want facts about coronavirus, you can visit the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But if you want to believe the threat of coronavirus is a hyperbolic creation of Democrats and the news media, tune to some of Colorado’s leading right-wing talk radio shows.

On KNUS’ flagship program, Peter Boyles said Colorado Gov. Jared Polis called a state of emergency “because every Democrat mayor and governor and his mother are lock step in this.”

“You don’t think they’re not playing this on Trump, do you?” asked Boyles on air. “Does anyone else besides me see this? Of course it is.” “I’m not saying people aren’t going to get sick. But I mean there’s a list of things,” said Boyles, listing Y2K, the end of the Mayan calendar, Ebola, the Doomsday Predictions of Nostradamus, Mad Cow, Y2K, SARS, HSN1, and H1N1. “…I mean, think of everything you’ve survived already.”

“It’s created. If you watch the local news geeks, they lower their voices,” said Boyles. “They get in what I call, you know, the dead cop voice.”

On Saturday, KNUS guest host Karen Kataline, subbing for Randy Corporon, blamed the “left” for creating hysteria.

“While the left and other people are creating such hysteria in an election year, about yet another virus, they don’t seem to be hysterical about defecating on the street, or Typhus in California, or the dangers they seem to ignore,” said Kataline, prior to introducing a guest who said on air, “Get yourself healthy so you don’t get a virus” by taking vitamins A, B, C, D, and Zinc and losing weight.

“It is also a distraction,” said Kataline, who said she wants level-headed concern. “If you can be all distracted about the coronavirus, then maybe you won’t notice, for example, that Joe Biden is one of the most corrupt politicians ever to run for president, and that’s saying something!”

On KVOR in Colorado Springs, longtime host Richard Randall said the coronavirus isn’t as “bad as the flu or just a cold.” He said the situation helps the Democrats because Trump can “no longer have his rallies” and Biden won’t have to debate the president.

    This kind of irresponsible shit is going to kill a lot of people.

    Listen up, folks. This IS NOT…I repeat…IS NOT H1N1 Influenza. Nor any relative of same. It is 10 times more deadly than the "flu".

    Please take this seriously.

    Why aren't leftists "hysterical about defecating on the street, or Typhus in California?" Perhaps because of our experience and ability to do math? 

    The US got pretty good about dealing with defecating on the street while we still had horses providing transportation as a regular thing.  Since WWII and the mandatory hygiene lessons for all the troops, we've gotten even better.  Number of illnesses and death traceable to poor toileting habits is small, and apparently an unremarkable number. 

    On the other hand, the progression of the number of known COVID-19 positive cases in the United States over the past week is 118, 176, 223, 341, 417, 584, 778, & 1050. 

    A straight-line progression of that rate of 135% day by day gets us to 461,381 at the end of March.  By April 15, we reach the annual levels of influenza in America.  We'd be on the way to what Harvard School of Public Health epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch estimated: “I think it is likely we will see a global pandemic. If a pandemic happens, 40% to 70% of people world-wide are likely to be infected in the coming year.”

    40% of the 325 million Americans is 130 million. Death toll known so far in the US is 27/1050) — doing the math of the low infection and low mortality, it comes up as 3.34 million, or about 1% of the population.  If the toll follows Italy's example so far, deaths of 827 of 12462 cases, that's 6.6% — and the low end of cases with that rate would be about 8 million.
