So, possibly a compromised immune system that vaccination wouldn’t help. Everyone else wearing masks might have.

Did he himself practice social distancing and mask wearing? Nobody is surprised by the R.

This is the first time the browser extension below made itself truly useful (fascist scumbags like Cruz and Hawley are obvious). I immediately knew from the headline alone that he was a Republican and a traitor to liberal democracy. That’s how Rep. Ron Wright will be remembered.

Death cultists gonna death cult.

Which is of course a really monstrous way to discuss the pandemic, because when people say “oh that death doesn’t count because they were old/had other comorbidities” what they’re really doing is advocating a eugenicist’s dream of a society dictated by survival of the fittest.

I’m not hopeful, but maybe some of his constituents eyes will be opened by this.

Ah, so it was the comorbidities all along.

Honestly the lengths some people will go to to keep this coronavirus hoax going never ceases to amaze me.

Yes, all of the above was sarcasm.

Sadly, I suspect he won’t be the last member of Congress to die from the disease.

He was diagnosed less than 2 weeks after the Jan 6th Insurrection.

So, what you are saying is, Nazis have Nazi ideals? To them, this is a feature, not a bug.

It’s just, every Nazi thinks they are a superman and couldn’t possibly be one of the unfit…

That is exactly what my first thought was, some folks definitely had to get sick from that. I know AOC was posting about her Covid vaccine and she got her second shot the day of the attack, so maybe this guy couldn’t get vaccinated due to the cancer?

wright happened to have been my representative. i have left a variety of phone messages and written several letters disagreeing with him and asking him to take alternative courses of action. not only did he vot against certifying the election but ha also joined in gohmert’s lawsuit seeking to throw out the votes of pennsylvania and arizona.
