As bombastic as that title may sound, it’s not an exaggeration. According to watchgroup Families Against Fentanyl, fentanyl has become the number one killer of Americans aged 18-45.
The synthetic opioid has killed over 64,000 Americans this year alone, surpassing suicide, Covid, and car accidents. As the group also points out, the fatality rate has doubled over the course of the last couple years.
Considering that the lion’s share of fentanyl is produced in China, it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s introduction into the U.S. was a deliberate move to further aggravate a country destabilized by Covid lockdowns. And considering that it comes into the U.S. through the Mexican border, it would seem as though it’s presence is a direct result of Democrat’s opposition to placing a wall along that border.
As FAF’s factsheet on fentanyl fatalities illustrates, fentanyl deaths for Americans age 18 to 45 overtakes Covid deaths, eclipsing them over 3.5 times:
Can we expect leadership from Democrats during this hard time? No, but we can expect them to push a fourth booster in a year for a vaccine that doesn’t seem to slow down the very virus it was intended to stop, while lining the pockets of their corporate interests with billions of dollars.
Let’s go, Brandon.
