Where is the dicipline of these people?

No wonder the US is stucked in such a horrible Corona situation.

Florida got what it wanted. No masks, no lockdowns.

It’s simple...just DONT go there...I never do.

The land of the free? What a joke. You can't even crack open a beer in public without getting arrested. So lucky to be in Japan.

They are tired of these stupid lockdowns, no surprise.

Yep. The average American male has a 50/50 chance of being arrested at some time of their life, and the US per capita prison population puts even China and Russia to shame. No country comes anywhere near putting so much of their population in prison.

But they still think America is a uniquely free country.

What do you expect when "the idiot " formerly the US president was and is holding superspreader events.

Mar A Lago is already partially shutdown because of outbreak:

Trump's Mar-a-Lago partially closed due to COVID outbreak

However, he so bad at running businesses, and he trying to pay lawyers for all these lawsuits that there is another fundraiser today to con all the rubes out of their money

Mar-a-Lago hosted large parties before a COVID-19 outbreak, and the resort has another planned this weekend

That is unfortunately the state and mindset in Florida at moment. The only three people most Floridians trust is a "Failed Ex-President", a "cheating Quarterback" and "The Tiger King".

What a sad situation!

I believe that had the former President taken a serious intelligent approach to Covid19 and influenced his followers to follow medical advice, we would be seeing this degree of stupidity.

The United States is nowhere near declaring victory over the pandemic. Still struggling to get everyone vaccinated, medical resources taxed, and living in morbid fear of the new strains. Yet we have State Governors outright dropping masks, opening all business' as if the pandemic is over. The insanity boggles the mind.

If the photo is representative of the crowd, most likely all of these people are anti-trumps. The fact that the msm hasn’t referred to this as a super spreader event also convinces me that this isn’t a pro-Trump crowd. It’s just selfish progressives who really don’t care about causes or humanity. Just themselves and the endorphin-rush they get from virtual signaling. But blaming Trump is so much easier and accepted orthodoxy. So, yeah, Trump’s fault these selfish progressives all went to spring break two months after Trump. Biden should get on tv and tell these people to go home. Tell them they’re doing what Trump would have wanted. I’m sure upon hearing that they’re behaving like nazis, the people will return home.

Spring breakers from out of state (eg blue states) coming down to ruin life for Floridians. Not unexpected. Progressives ruin everything they touch. Should do like some northeast states are doing and block people from states with bad covid policies like New York from crossing the border.

Looks like Americans see fools as being those on the opposite political spectrum to themselves. All the rest of us see is .... Americans.

Judging from the photo, the superspreaders don’t appear to be Trump supporters. This looks like blatant racism by the Democratic Miami city government.

Miami is a Republican run city. In fact, the whole state is mostly Republican. It is one of the reason that the trumps fled NYC. That and criminal charges.

The reason I know is because the Florida GOP have been trying to cover-up another voting scandal:

what's not surprising is the author of this post was spectacularly wrong yet again. What is surprising is that 9 unaware people liked it.

Fla. lifted the useless lockdowns in September of last year.

But he said the ‘blacks’ love him. Several posters kept telling us how he had the black vote.

Stupid people are stupid people no matter what the situation. Plus the ignorance and arrogance of youth never learn until it's too late. Regardless of one's political spectrum, the people that ignored the rules meant to protect themselves and others just to party always create unnecessary problems for everyone else.

You can’t judge people by the color of their skin. Better to do so by the content of their character. Although the stats say the black citizens in this picture are more than likely Biden supporters, their is a small chance that these covid super spreaders are Trump cultists. The chances are tiny for sure- most likely Biden super spreaders. But there is still a chance that this all Trumps doing.

Apparently all lives matter again. Things change so much back and forth it’s hard to keep up with what the unthinking masses are supposed to believe from one day to the next.

It’s more than a little offensive for someone to look at a picture of black American citizens enjoying themselves despite the systemic oppression they must endure every day. Then to have them subjected to the same old tropes that they are not intelligent and cannot be trusted with their own agency. 400 years ago their ancestors were brought to the Western hemisphere in chains. Let us not begrudge them their freedom to make their own choices in life without the same old patronizing systemic attitudes that have only served to hold them back from fulfilling their community’s true potential.

The people in the photo are stupid because of what they are doing, not because of who they are.

More than a bit patronizing to suggest that some folk are immune from criticism because of what some other folk did four hundred years ago.

They’re not immune from COVID, and they’re unlikely to fulfill their potential if they end up dead or saddled with long COVID.

It's worse than that. America has the MOST people incarcerate than ANY country on earth. Period. There is no need to qualify it compared to anything else. Just straight up, more people behind bars.

Nature can and does, but it's never... nice.
