Why there was no lockdown for "COVID one through 18"

This man was angry at the “Dirty, bastards, lying, scam, smoke and mirrors, COVID-19 freaks,” so on April 7 he posted a video on Facebook to that effect.  In the rant he opines
"You know, I guess I would ask you — because I’m addicted to truth, logic and common sense — and my common-sense meter would demand the answer to why weren’t we shut down for COVID one through 18? 

COVID-1 — and there was a COVID 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — COVID one through 18 didn’t shut anything down but woah, COVID-19!"
Video at the link, and I agree with Snopes that he does not appear to be kidding.

This week he noted that he is infected, and is not an asymptomatic carrier:
",,, Nugent admitted that he had caught the disease and spent 10 days believing he was dying: "it was a clusterfuck." In the message on Facebook Live, Nugent declares that "I got the Chinese shit", pivoting elegantly from denialism to racism.

Describing his symptoms including a "stuffed-up head" and "body-aches", Nugent continued: "My god, what a pain in the a**. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days… So I was officially tested positive for Covid-19 today."
Karma is a bitch.


  1. "the Rain is no respecter of persons
    the snow doesn't give a soft white damn Whom it touches"
    - e.e. cummings

  2. Well, well, well, Nugent is an old white guy pandering to an audience of old white guys. But I don't buy that he is that stupid. He is just being an iconoclast for his dear old Trump. A Trump who would throw him under the bus when needed.

  3. Yes Ann he is that stupid, if you can call it that, or maybe lack of reason and logic. My next door neighbor, a successful dental surgeon, is just like the moron Nugent. So not stupid but lacking something upstairs. Trump voter as well.

  4. Nugent hasn't had a hit album since 1981, and that was a compilation. He is a has-been screaming "Pay attention to me! I used to be cool!"

    Like his idol Donnie Trump, Little Ted would be kinda pitiful--if he wasn't so annoying.

  5. The Motor City Madman! Cat Scratch Fever? Wango Tango? Stranglehold?
    "Now I been smokin' for so long
    You know I'm here to stay
    Got you in a stranglehold baby
    You best get oughta the way"

    Oh Bother.

  6. It's not only Ted Nugent who's an idiot. I've heard of active surgeons ignoring the warnings and dying before they got their test results back.

    Trump has the slimy mess of many drowned lungs on his hands. Sadly, he will never pay a price high enough for the misery he has caused.

  7. I have a relative who is a physician. She recently discovered that newly hired physician is an ant-vaxer and will not take the covid vaccination shot. She was dumbfounded. What sort of medical advice would this physician provide? Should all of the other physicians be notified that this person was in their midst? Is there a right to provide medical advice that *you and only you* believe, won't harm the patient? I find it insane that a trained physician would take such an extreme position.

  8. The pandemic hit some folks harder than others, so rather than pivoting from "denialism to racism", these are stages of grief: Denial, Anger, and that cheeky "one through 18" argument almost sounds like Bargaining.
