Continue to advocate for the spread of disease.

OB, there's a difference between 'not agreeing with your' and 'supporting the opposition in your head'. You have years of training in ethics, I know you're knowledgeable of genetics and medicine. Laudable! Please, use them, and try talking to people like they're not going to, I don't know, disagree with you just because disease are so gosh darn fun. Nevralgic topic aside, lumping everyone who isn't giving you 100% unquestioned support into one bag, the selfish unenlightened far/alt-right Trump-supporting bible-thumping COVID-denying scum as I presume, insults everyone.

Can't you see it, or you just don't care? And before you say some variant of "to hell with manners, this is WAR!", you really, really should care. Not because honey gets more flies than vinegar, but because angry shouting only works on spineless, children or people already intimidated by you.
