Deaths per million in those counties would still be very low. What percentage of anything is zero?

The worst outbreaks are almost all in blue areas- own it, lock down boy.
Trousdale, TN: (4 deaths / 7816 people) * 1000000 = 511 deaths per million
Ford, KS: (8 / 21629) * 1000000 = 237 deaths per million
Switzerland: 221 deaths per million

The worst outbreaks are in blue areas because big urban areas are the most dense and mostly likely to have a major international airport.

The point wasn't that Republicans are responsible for outbreaks in small counties; the point was that it's ridiculous to pretend that the outbreak was contained to 3 cities.

The point is, how on earth wasn't there a huge outbreak in Chicago, Minneapolis, St Louis, Indianapolis, Memphis, etc etc. No amount of Trousdales are going to make your point that this hit hard in most of the country. Certainly not a gigantic wave.

Pretty soon JTF is going to be pointing to specific households than have a CV-19 case(s) as evidence that hot spots are happening all over.

I never said it was most of the country. Les' hero, Alex Berenson, said it was only NY, Detroit, and New Orleans. That's ridiculous:

Dude. The combined population of the 3 counties you listed in Georgia is <25k. The rest are, wait for it, NY or New Orleans.
And I'm not positive, but I think his point was, areas where the health care systems were overwhelmed, you know the original problem, and perceived goal of the lockdowns. Maybe the health care systems were overwhelmed in GA, but I didnt' read about it.

Those Georgia counties....all blue counties. 60% African American in 2 of 3, 50% in the other.

JTF considers deception to be like shots on goal in hockey. If you send it out in enough volume, some will sneak by.

The Clark house in Aitkin MN had a COVID rate of 75% and a death rate of 25%. WAY higher than Switzerland.

Berenson never said, "there wasn't a wave anywhere except 3 cities that wasn't a blue county." He limited it to those 3 places.

Whatever threshold he used to pick those 3 places is wrong, since DC, MA, and CT are all above MI in deaths per million.

I could be wrong, but again, the point was areas where health care systems were overwhelmed. There was some concern in Atlanta, but it never got to that point. The areas where the health care systems were overwhelmed was NO, NY, and Detroit. Deaths per million won't show you that. And for the most part, they reflect areas where there were outbreaks in nursing homes.

Shocking, CNN isn't interested in news that doesn't fit their narrative:

It's pretty clear that un-notable twitter "journalist", Alex Bertleson, and less here, share an online database filled with virus porn.

Reading Alex's post one after the other.......and then the next one is yours. That's a total letdown, buddy!

We see examples everyday why this approach would never work in the US. Plus Japanese are, on average, much healthier than Americans.

Let's keep this thread AB tweets only. No need to post points of contention. I don't agree with everything he posts but I find it very entertaining to see his contrarian viewpoint (which seem to be closer to the truth than most of what we are getting). thanks.
