As I recall Republicans actively avoided taking any measures that might have helped save lives during that pandemic also.
How did we arrive at a world full of empty creatures such as this?
Latex masks were strongly encouraged.
We were, only in the worst part of the AIDS epidemic, we called them condoms.
Adam Curtis documentaries can be very helpful in answering this question.
Arizona, the Mississippi of the SouthWest.

Something of an irrelevant aside from this idiot asshole, but it turns out not only is he stupid, but also probably wrong.

Headpiece filled with straw
Our dried voices, when
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar
