.....at 61.....he changed his mind when he caught it.....


Conservative talk show host Phil Valentine dies after battle with Covid-19, his employer says

....Phil Valentine, a Nashville-based conservative radio talk show host who had questioned whether it was necessary for all people to get Covid-19 vaccines, died on Saturday, his employer, WWTN Radio, announced on Twitter. Valentine was 61 years old.

"Please keep the Valentine family in your thoughts and prayers," the station said in the tweet.

His death comes more than a month after the host first announced he had been diagnosed with Covid-19. On his program, Valentine had repeatedly downplayed the importance of getting a vaccine against the virus, saying last December that he believed his personal odds of dying from Covid-19 were "probably way less than one percent."

But his message changed in late July when his family announced that Valentine had been hospitalized in "very serious condition" and was suffering from "Covid Pneumonia and the attendant side effects."

Phil would like for his listeners to know that while he has never been an 'anti-vaxer' he regrets not being more vehemently 'Pro-Vaccine', and looks forward to being able to more vigorously advocate that position as soon as he is back on the air, which we all hope will be soon," his brother Mark Valentine wrote on July 22.

Mark Valentine told CNN's Alisyn Camerota in a July 26 interview his brother was doing better but was "still very deep in the woods" and breathing with assistance.

"He recognizes now that him not getting the vaccination has probably caused a bunch of other people not to get vaccinated," he said in the interview. "And that he regrets."

"This is a real threat, it is a real public health crisis and it is something that if he had to do over again ... his cavalier attitude wouldn't have been what it was and he would have gotten vaccinated and encouraged everybody to get vaccinated," he added.

Following news of his death, many shared tributes for the radio host.

"Maria and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Phil Valentine and pray for his family as they navigate the difficult days ahead," Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee wrote on Twitter.

Tennessee House Speaker Cameron Sexton added, Phil Valentine "made a difference in life as a strong conservative voice."

"He will be greatly missed by all! Our heartfelt prayers & deepest sympathies go out to the Valentine family & Phil's radio family," Sexton wrote.



dies of COVID......?!

We truly do seem to be doing some sort of Darwinian experiment here, where what's being tested (in an evolutionary sense) is folks' ability -- or lack thereof -- to follow rules and believe in science rather than in some sort of hokeyness.

I mention this also because of a person on my local Nextdoor app, saying that none of us need a vaccine because no vaccine will match the "natural immunity" that some have. facepalm

Give me a break. All these morons who deny Covid is real and are anti vaxer turn out to be pro-vaxer on their death bed and their last breath is "can I get the vaccine please?".

@#$%& them! never mind, they are dead, that would be necrophilia, LOL

Wow!

Maybe ask him to read what he wrote out loud into Voice Memo, then listen to the playback while using his post as subtitles?





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I'm not sure if I already read this somewhere else or if this is an additional rush wannabe taking their beliefs to their logical conclusion.

I love her to death, but my SIL has my brother believing this @#$%&. He is in a relative high-risk group (over 50, ARDS survivor) and has refused to get vaccinated. Well, the joke’s on him — he tested positive last week. So far, he’s been OK.

She’d been sick for a while before he tested positive — he’s pretty sure he got it from her. She refuses to even get tested. “We don’t need vaccines — God gave us bodies that heal themselves.” Apparently she’s never known anybody with cancer.

I’m pissed beyond words at both of them.



It is what it is.

So maybe God also wants 4.42 million (and climbing) dead?

The irrational and relentless pursuit of perfection and demands of personal guarantees will kill everyone. It’s why some people survive Covid but still do not “believe” in vaccinations since it didn’t kill them.

The "Zelenko Protocol" is a hot topic among the anti-vax, anti-critical thinking, conspiracy theory Luddites on YouTube right now.

A GP (not virologist, nor epidemiologist) gets worldwide attention through unsubstantiated claims; first about hydroxychloroquine, until that's disproved, then a workaround with a substitute for hydroxychloroquine using OTC meds.

And the ignorant are lapping it up!

Conspiracy theorists are strongly attracted to the chase, of course. It’s not evidence, answers nor solutions they seek but rather, a Quixotic desire to be in on secret knowledge, so close, just beyond reach.

One person I spoke to told me she was “a researcher,” spending vast amounts of time [recreating wheels with the wrong tools.]

I suppose changing the name from “Covid” to ‘Make Your Bed and Then Sleep — Or die — In It’ is out of the question?

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Saint Peter - What did you in?

Valentine - this terrible disease. Why did you send this plague to Earth?

Saint Peter - didn’t we also make scientists? Did they offer you a vaccine?

Valentine - why yes, but I thought I knew better!

Saint Peter - come back when you’d rather live in eternity with humans than with germs. Down you go…

So, our extraterrestrial overlords have seeded the planet with COVID in order to select for improved critical thinking?
