Squad Member Jaypal Tests Positive For COVID, Blames Republicans

Update: I’ve removed the original Jaypal tweet below, and replaced it with her tweet and a reply to it, showing her maskless (via Twitchy)

See, originally, we were told that only those who were sick should wear masks. Then, around the end of May, we were told that we should all wear masks to keep from getting Bat Soup Virus. We can all see how that’s worked out with all the exploding cases. But, of course, Someone Else has to be blamed

Jayapal tests positive for COVID-19, criticizes some Republicans for ‘cruelly’ not wearing masks

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., took to Twitter early Tuesday to announce that she has been diagnosed with COVID-19, and excoriated several Republicans locked down with her during last week’s riot at the Capitol who did not wear masks.

Jayapal posted that she was “locked down in a secured room at the Capitol where several Republicans not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but recklessly mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one.”

Her office issued a statement that said some members and staff were informed by Dr. Brian Monahan, the attending physician of the U.S. Congress, that those secured in that particular room had been exposed to “another occupant with coronavirus infection.” She said they had been in the room for “multiple hours.”

She said there were over 100 people in the room and believes it was a “superspreader event.”

First off, neither she nor her office specifically point at any Republican, so, sounds just like over the top unhinged Blamestorming, along with failing to take responsibility. Nor do they say that the person who had the COVID infection was a Republican and refused to wear a mask. Second, if she was wearing a mask then it wouldn’t matter if others weren’t, right? Isn’t that what we were told? That wearing a mask Is The Way? That wearing one can keep us from getting it?  That’s what we’ve been told since the CDC updated their guidance.

From her little whine

“I am also calling for serious fines to be immediately levied on every single Member who refuses to wear a mask in the Capitol,” Jayapal continued. “Additionally, any Member who refuses to wear a mask should be immediately removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms. This is not a joke. Our lives and our livelihoods are at risk, and anyone who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy.”

If you’re wearing a mask, then you don’t have to worry. That’s what we were told.

Here’s Lisa Blunt Rochester, Delaware, Democrat, sitting with her

Not quite sure who this is, who put mask on then took off. Maybe Nanette Diaz Barragan (D-Ca)? Someone new without a photo? An aid?

    There’s a reason why more Republican than Democratic officials have been infected with Covid.

    Covid-19 is a highly infectious virus. More infectious than the common cold, more infectious than influenza.

    Masks reduce the spread of Covid. Reduce, not stop. Hand washing reduces the spread. Social distancing reduces the spread.

    A screaming group of thousands without wearing masks will lead to more infections.

    ? Oil remember when we were told that no one needed to eesr masks
    I remember when we were told it was all fake news” and that it was no worse than the common flu

    There is help arriving in the next few years digitally.

    Blockchain Technology. A tech originally developed for BitCoin which is now exploding in popularity.


    Here is a link to understanding how it works. Too long for me to delve into right now.

    The reason Google is an unsustainable technology is because the rely upon customers who are not. You and I are not customers but rather resources. They give us their stuff for free and in return they sell our information to advertisers. This is why if you own a smart phone ads appear on your phone all the time directed at your interests.

    Android, Microsoft and Apple phones literally listen to your conversations and use an algorithm to let big corpos push ads to you. It is just as easy for the same algorithm to push your convo’s to the NSA.

    This is exactly why the FBI no longer works for the American people but rather works for itself and big corporations who have bought their protection.

    So for twitter to kick people off their platform that have millions of followers it is not an issue because they have not removed revenue producing people but rather simply re-scaled their model. The same with YouTube and Google.

    Google. Stop using Gmail and Google search engine. (Google uses this information to enrich themselves at your expense.) Rumble is a free search engine that is currently suing Google.

    However folks Biden was propped up and put in charge so that the big tech, Big Businesses could continue to FUK YOU…the little guy. Do not Expect Biden’s DOJ to do anything against Big Tech/Business.

    To return to BlockChain technology it will fundamentally change the internet in the coming few years. There is a service right now called BitTorrent that is used by the digital gaming industry and MICROSOFT to download your game or the MS operating system.

    How this works is each and every computer around the world that holds the game your downloading is activated and downloads a small percentage of the game to your computer. Same with the Microsoft OS. It is stored on billions of computers and your computer might be called upon to download 5 megabytes of information from your own base OS to another computer in Tibet.

    It is safe but it is blockchain in a nutshell.

    Right Now Amazon has the worlds largest Cloud storage/servers in the world. They host a myraid of companies and they just willy nilly said sorry Parler go ff your self. In the future this will be impossible because 5 billion computers will be hosting the internet, not 50 mega corporations who can shut you down at a whim.

    Exactly who the old you that you would be100% safe if you were a mask?

    Chronology of masks in the USA.

    2020-03-03 · The CDC said last month it doesn’t recommend people use face masks, making the announcement on the same day that first case of person-to-person transmission of corona viruswas reported in the U.S.

    2020-10-12 · Now there is evidence that masks don’t work very well. CDC: 85% of COVID-19 patients report ‘always’ or ‘often’ wearing a mask. Americans are wearing masks, but masks aren’t working.

    In Europe:

    Face masks have become a key weapon in the fight against coronavirus, and many European countries now require citizens to wear them when out in public.


    2020-10-31 · With coronavirus exploding in Europe, hospitals calculate how long until they hit capacity Medical staff conduct a CT scan on a covid-19 patient in the …

    NOT MUCH OF A WEAPON IF THE VIRUS IS EXPLODING while people wear masks.

    In short Face masks work very poorly against Covid-19 and they promote the lack of caution by those wearing them. Technically they work but let me give you a little example of why they don’t work. I was in the grocery store the other day and I watched untold people lower their masks lick their fingers to open a plastic bag, then with spit on their fingers handles multiple items of fruit and veggies.

    I watched countless people touching their eyes with their exposed fingers. It is not the masks that are the problem it is the fact that most people touch their faces 1000 times a day without even thinking. Masks don’t work because it still doesn’t change the fundamental behavior of people.

    • Remember Ashli Babbit says:

      I would venture to say that wearing a mast causes people to touch their faces more, not less. The putting on and off, the constant adjustments, and the fact that having a diaper on ones face is not naturals therefore subconsciously you tend to touch it and your face more often than if it weren’t there at all.

      “Exactly who the old you that you would be100% safe if you were a mask?”

      I think the inference is that we’ve been told (By Karens and Kevins) that if we don’t wear a mask we’re making others 100% unsafe. But if they’re wearing theirs how could that be? It’s like if vaccinations actually work why would I care if you get one? As long as I have one I’m safe, right?

  6. Dana says:

    The purpose of the masks is, allegedly, to prevent you from spreading the virus to others if you have it. The masks slow the velocity of your exhaled breath, so that the moisture which contains the virus does not project as far.

    Of course, another purpose of the mask is to get you used to enforced compliance.

    Of course, blue states Arizona, Rhode Island and California have the three highest rates of COVID transmission, not just in the United States but in the world, despite the Pyrite State’s toughest in the nation lockdown regime, and an overwhelmingly Democratic population. Why, it’s almost as though all of these liberty-destroying methods don’t work!

    Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Sadly, so many of the American people have proven themselves to be American sheeple, willing to surrender their Constitutional rights of free assembly and free exercise of religion, because Their Betters told them it was For Their Own Good. I have no problem with people choosing to wear masks of choosing to avoid their own families on Christmas or choosing not to go to church, but I very much object to states and cities using the power of government to force people to do those things.

    Fortunately, the General Assembly in the Bluegrass State has passed bills which curtails Reichsstatthalter Andy Beshear’s (NSDAP-KY) ’emergency’ powers under KRS 39A. The Reich Governor has promised to veto them, but Republicans have strongly veto-proof majorities in both chambers, and the bills passed by overwhelming margins.

    The Reichsstatthalter has said if his vetoes are overridden, he will challenge the laws in court.

    The primary impetus for the laws is that the Reichsstatthalter specifically refused to involve the state legislature in his decisions. He could sign Senate Bill 1, or allow it to become law without his signature, and it would still allow him to issue executive orders. It would, however, limit them to a non-renewable thirty days unless he gets the legislature to approve an extension. If he believes the orders are necessary, issue the orders and then call the legislature into special session to approve extensions; that would all be allowed under the bill.

    But the Reichsstatthalter loves those ’emergency’ dictatorial powers.

    We know, we know… conservaAmericans feel/believe that the “Covid pandemic” is just another communist hoax/plot to control conservAmericans. They feel/believe the virus was created in Chinese communist laboratories and deliberately spread globally as an attack on Donald Trump. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was a “cure” discovered by President Dr Trump but suppressed by the DemComs and their media and medical lapdogs (why didn’t trump receive HCQ while at Walter Reed??).

    By Mr Trump’s last day in office about 400,000 Americans will have died from Covid. These are colleagues, friends, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, grandmas, grandpas, sons and daughters.

    In many areas, hospitals are overwhelmed with the next surge just beginning. Imagine if we had double or triple the number of infections as many conservaMericans espouse.

    Our best hope is rapid and widespread vaccinations. We know, we know… conservaMericans feel/believe if they are vaccinated why worry about anyone else. This is not surprising knowing the self-obsessed character of conservaMuricans. Please try to understand we are in the early days of a new surge in cases with more infectious Covid mutants already circulating in the population.

    The Trump administration has been MIA when it comes to supporting the distribution and utilization of the vaccine. Trump has populated his administration with ill-prepared, laissez-faire, anti-government zealots who are too busy looking for their next hustle to worry about the nation. In addition, we’ve had no president for months now.

  9. Professor hale says:

    We will never really know about the utility of masking. The national news media has politicized everything including COVID and the democratic party chose to make it a campaign issue. Since then, there are no reliable reporting about COVID from which to derive rational policy. Everything is party politics now. Everything is “comply because we told you to”. Stories that support the campaign get reported. Stories that don’t get suppressed.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Actually, studies show that masks work in reducing the overall risk of transmitting and contracting Covid. Also social distancing also reduces the risk.

        LONDON (Reuters) – The United Kingdom recorded its highest daily death toll on Friday since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic as London declared a major incident, warning that its hospitals were at risk of being overwhelmed.

        With a highly transmissable new variant of the virus surging across Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has shuttered the economy and is rushing out vaccines faster than the country’s European neighbours in a bid to stem the pandemic.

        UK MASK POLICY???

        Gallagher also told a story about how he refused to wear a mask on the train up to Manchester, despite the threat of a £1,000 fine, arguing it was absurd that people were mandated to put them on indoors – except when eating.

        “Oh right, this killer virus that’s sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me, but see me having a sandwich and go, leave him, he’s having his lunch?” he said. “Why do you have to wear one when you’re having a f***ing haircut, but you don’t have to wear one in the pub?”

      • Dana says:

        In mannequins, or, perhaps more appropriately, dummies, in laboratory conditions. Yet the states with the strictest restrictions on Americans’ constitutional rights have some of the highest actual infection rates around. Perhaps, just perhaps, substituting dummies for actual human beings isn’t exactly the best testing method.

  10. david7134 says:

    Why don’t you get reliable information on any subject.

    Your claims about the virus are just about made up. You have no idea of the infectious potential, none. Most of what is mandated by liberal government is pure bull. Mask do very little but makes it look like the politicians are doing something. Best way to stay healthy….if you are elderly, stay in, get the jab, otherwise not much. Large gatherings seem bad, but the original problem was recirculated air. By this time all systems should have a halo which is best to kill the virus at a restaurant or similar area.

    The risk of death of the illness is low except for old folks. Shutting down businesses does nothing and those owners should sue the liberals causing this.

    • david7134 says:

      Oh, source… UpToDate cost $800 but you are rich and can afford that.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      400,000 dead is nothing?

      diva typed: Your claims about the virus are just about made up.

      What does “just about made up” even mean?

      The Trump-Barrett soiree was outdoor and several folks there caught Covid.

      You have no evidence that masks do very little, but even is so, that’s better than nothing.

      And seditionist-lites* such as you and dana say that real doctors recommend masks to teach Americans how to submit to tyranny.

      * a seditionist-lite favors the overthrow of the US government but insists that others take the risks.

      • david7134 says:

        The risk of death is low. Most deaths occurred in places like NY where the gov put infected people with the most vulnerable. You are given to hysteria and know little of medicine except how to lie with stats.

        Most of your comment does not make sense.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          davidiot typed: “The risk of death is low.”

          Tell that to 400,000 American families. Cases are on the rise once again and more infectious mutants are in circulation.

          NY has had some 39,000 total deaths. You do know that NY is where a lot of people live, right?

  11. Remember Ashli Babbitt says:

    Let’s see. There are about 25,000 highway deaths annually in the U.S. but there are millions of cars on our roads daily which means the risk of death is low. Tell that to 25,000 American families. Now lets do cancer now. In 2020 about 606,000 Americans died of cancer and yet out of 330 million the risk is low. But tell that to the 606,000 families. Last week one woman was shot in the throat by a SS agent at the Capitol. Out of 300,000 peaceful protesters her risk was low, but tell that to Ashli Babbitts family.

    Your numbers would mean more to us if: 1. they were accurate which is about 10% of 400,000 but you know that and still repeat the lie and 2. at some time you actually demonstrated care and empathy for those who died instead of trying to use their deaths as a whip against your perceived political enemies. You and hateful people like you have now turned medicine into medical warfare. Just like you did to climate science. Everything the fascist left touches it destroys because all you guys have is hate.

    I finally realized that Elwood and the rest of his ilk don’t lie to us because they want us to believe them, but rather they constantly lie BECAUSE THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT! They’re not lying to be believed, in fact they want you to know they’re lying. That’s why he keeps repeating the same disproven numbers. This is a demonstration of raw power to show who is the master and who is the slave. Dominance and submission, a playbook as old as mankind currently being employed to the max by the fascists on the left.
