No sympathy at all from me. One less moron, the average IQ goes up in the world, the gene pool is improved, one less Republican. **** them all.

For many Republicans, it's a decision between possible literal death and very probable political death.

Texas Anti-Mask 'Freedom Rally' Organizer Fighting For His Life With COVID-19

Fri, August 27, 2021, 12:57 AM

A Texas man who helped organize protests against pandemic restrictions is fighting for his life after being hospitalized for nearly a month with COVID-19, the San Angelo Standard-Times reported.

His wife, Jessica Wallace, wrote Wednesday on Facebook that she had a “heartbreaking update” about her husband, Caleb.

“He’s not doing good. It’s not looking in our favor,” she said. “His lungs are stiff due to the fibrosis. They called and said they’ve run out of options for him and asked if I would consent to a do not resuscitate. And it would be up to us when to stop treatments.”

“My heart just can’t. I can’t imagine my life without him.”

Dude's gonna leave his wife a widow and his 4 daughters without a father because he's either too stupid or thinks owning the libs is more important. An utter failure of a human being.

A decade from now when this plague is behind us, I wonder how his surviving family is going to feel about his choices.

So he is going to continue to take up an ICU bed?

Story about a vet who died of gallstones because he couldn't get a bed.

I just saw two Covid patients in MS, both unvaccinated. One said she would now get vaccinated and the other said she won't because she still "doesn't trust the vaccine". The Pfizer has complete FDA approval now. What the hell more does this fool want?

I suspect their attitude will vary in direct proportion to the size of their givefundgojesus account balance. But these cases are becoming too numerous for the christian charity grift Pool to keep giving at some point, so late 2021 is probably not going to be as profitable as this summer has been.

If hospitals start prioritizing the vaccinated over the unvaccinated, there will be lines around the block to get the shot. Sacrifice a few and the rest will roll up their sleeves.

Not a politician, this time a cop:

Anti-vaxx police officer who had been taking horse worm medicine dies from Covid

Quote:
A police officer who frequently voiced anti-vaccine sentiments and took horse dewormer in a misguided attempt to stave off the coronavirus has died from Covid-19.

Captain Joe Manning, 57, of the Wayne County Sheriff's Office in Georgia died on Wednesday due to complications from Covid-19, according to local broadcaster WSAV.
Quote:
Capt Manning discussed his use of the drug on Facebook and complained when the social media platform disciplined him for posting misinformation.

"I have been censured again in regards to posting an opinion on COVID and being one who hasn't been vaccinated," he wrote in July.

One of his posts included a button that said “I am not vaccinated” as well as the phrase “by choice and that’s my right.”
Yep, you made your choice, and you certainly have the right to die.

I'm curious how much it costs for the average anti-vaxxer to die of covid. Remsdisivir isn't cheap, and neither is spending any amount of time in the ICU.

Considering the costs of slowly dying and the likely loss of income for most of these people, I doubt these online begging campaigns really amount to much comparatively.

Sorry for being a sociopath, but here's another one for the woodpile. Left a pregnant wife and three kids. He made his choice, but they didn't get to. His fourth kid will never know its father.

I would be much more willing to laugh at these people if my six year old was vaccinated.


But she is hardcore anti-vax. She keeps telling me we would be fine with unicorn dewormer.

KW Miller might count soon, though he might be too far right to count as Republican. Ran as independent in Florida’s 18 district and was a distant 3rd.

He said last year that he’d wear a mask as soon as Obama showed his birth certificate. I guess Obama must have taken it to his hospital bed, because he’s got one on there.

OMG....those comments! Pushing colloidal silver, ivermectin, and vitamins while warning not to let them put you in the hospital because that's where they'll kill you. Idiots. Just plain idiots.

Dancing on the graves of the dead is not cool, no matter what your political affiliation may be.

Depends on who the dead person is. There was a fair amount of grave dancing when OBL was assassinated and GOP vaccine denialists are responsible for more American deaths.

Those who celebrated the death of OBL are equally idiotic, imo.

But a big difference is the ideology and intent of each.

Interesting take. Why is necessary for us to coddle the ideology and intent of vaccine deniers and anti-maskers? Ultimately they are wilfully endangering the health and lives of them, their loved ones and their community by embracing wilful ignorance and a vindictive attitude just to one-up those they disagree with.
