Unvaccinated Alabama: ‘We dare defend our last rites’

This is an opinion cartoon.

“Alabama’s state motto, “We dare defend our rights” should be tweaked to:” We dare defend our last rites.”

Alabama’s last in vaccination, first and worst in new COVID cases. And death. Hospitals are bubbling over with sick people struggling to breathe. Doctors and nurses are overwhelmed, stressed and fighting to save lives.

Gov. Kay Ivey said it best: “Its time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks.”

Mask up. Get vaccinated. Take some responsibility for this mess. Act like you have a lick of sense, for crying out loud. Do you want to have a football season?
