What does the coronavirus and conspiracy theories have in common? They both start with the letter ‘C’.
The number of U.S. confirmed coronavirus cases is, at the time of this writing, 1,562,714. The number of deaths from the coronavirus stands at 93,863. Keep those numbers in mind.
The Big Picture:
Okay, maybe that is the easy answer. There are no commonalities between the conservative conspiracy beliefs and the deadliest pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu. Yet, here in America there is a fair many people who believe one or more conspiracy theories about the coronavirus. It would be a totally laughing matter if it weren’t for the fact that there are prominent personalities in government (President Trump and Rush Limbaugh) and the media (Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and others at Fox News) who buy into this horse manure in one form or another.
