Conservative Pundit S.E. Cupp Calls Out Republicans For Killing Their Own Voters
Conservative expert S.E. Cupp says Republicans are literally shrinking their electoral base with their anti-vaccine rhetoric that has resulted in unnecessary COVID-19 infections and deaths.
"Republicans have increasingly allowed conspiracy theories and anti-Vax arguments to creep in to infect the party and party policies harm health," she said on CNN on Wednesday.
Cupp called on the party for an "insane response to the pandemic".
"From anti-maskers to anti-vaxxers, the politicization of science and health has undeniably cost lives," she said. "It also made us dumber and more prone to misinformation."
She said right-wing figures are now being forced to double and triple lies to keep the voters they conditioned with misinformation happy.
"Telling the truth about science and health eventually becomes an apostasy, a traitor, evidence that you are sold out," she said, adding:
“That can't be political. But ultimately, Republicans are doing more to shrink their base than to enlarge it in more ways than one. It's bad politics, but it's also just bad. "
