name any evidence whatsoever of this. this is a toxic viewpoint that conservatives seem to hold which is that liberals/antifa/others somehow "like" covid, or that governments somehow "want" to shut schools down. I see this viewpoint quite a bit and it is completely insane and not based in any reality at all.

for example, I have relatives who watch FOX news all day. they are convinced covid vaccines were created to kill people, for the purposes of "thinning the herd". the reason for this "thinning the herd", which they seem to believe is happening? despite most everyone they know including their whole extended family shaking their heads at their crazy facebook posts being vaccinated without any issue? is so that this would somehow pave the way for "communism". that's their whole worldview. so those are folks who think we're somehow all on board with covid being great, or something.
