2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
Where Obtuse Behavior Replaces Common Sense
Cristal M Clark
Not surprisingly the AP is now reporting the numbers are steadily rolling of those spreading Covid-19 far and wide after attending the 2020 Sturgis motorcycle rally. According to officials, the rally is now tied to roughly 250,000 new cases and that number is growing, in fact the rally is now being dubbed as a massive super spreader.
The rally drew motorcycle enthusiasts from around the country, roughly 500,000 uncaring individuals, many of whom were seen without face coverings inside crowded bars, restaurants, and other indoor establishments. Now around half are responsible for spreading the virus even further.
Health officials in South Dakota have said they don’t know how many people were exposed and have issued public warnings of possible COVID-19 exposure at 5 businesses popular with bikers.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (not exactly what I would call the brightest bulb in the pack), a Republican, has repeatedly defied calls to cancel large gatherings and staunchly opposes requirements to wear masks. This dumb ass actually welcomed the event.
I understand the tourism aspect but at what point does utter stupidity reign king here? This behavior from the attendees to the state of South Dakota is absolutely sickening. And these attendees, most of which are Trump fans who seek to defy orders to wear a face mask and to social distance; the two things that can actually help prevent the spread of the virus, feel like they are good ole American citizens who love this country?
I call that bullshit, they don’t give a fuck about the United States the country they claim to be proud citizens of, they don’t give a fuck about each other, you, me, rights, this country, if they did they would be patriotic and wear a goddamn face mask and socially distance, the two things science has actually proven help here.
Whatsmore is that these are the same people who condemn the agitators who want to burn cities and abolish the government.
I almost have to laugh at the hypocrisy, the inability for each and every one of them to see that they are in fact behaving the very same way only instead of burn down a city and abolish the government they aim to just spread a potentially deadly virus.
The obtuse behavior is mind boggling. This is not the behavior of a rough and tough biker, this is the behavior of a disobedient 12 year old girl, who is about to defy her curfew. Disgusting.
These guys should take note, we have people here in the US who actually cannot wear a face mask when out in public due to health reasons, innocent individuals who don’t want to catch the virus. We should be wearing face masks to protect them and others who might be vulnerable.
It’s a sad day in America when you look around and start to notice that your fellow American’s don’t give a shit about anyone but themselves and their selfish wants and needs, so much for patriotism here.
