Doesn't the question about Covid that was taken from Wattsupwiththat prove that denial is purely political?

Neither the question nor the story at Wattsupwiththat have anything to do with global warming, but they do fit into right wing politics and its denial of science.  Isn't the politics what really motivates deniers?

    Bipartisan concern for COVID lasted about 10 minutes. During that time a few AGW contrarians even posted here saying that unlike global warming this is what a "real" crisis looks like. 

    Then when it started to get bad in the US, and they realized their president would take the blame for it, the conspiracy theory machine started cranking at full force. Just as with global warming denial, you see a limitless list of baseless and mostly mutually contradictory claims, that all get accepted so long as they somehow point to COVID being less serious. 

    COVID will end eventually and be mostly forgotten about. The conspiracy machine that's being revved up for tomorrow, however, I'm personally a lot more concerned about.

    You deny you're paid to post here against overwhelming evidence.  The only reason you post is to keep your paycheck afloat.  Everyone knows it except you.  That is the ultimate denial.  Incredible.
