Actually reading his posts (and I am sure you can nitpick a few of them), his prevailing messaging seems to be 'Overreaction or fear based policy can cause more problems than a measured response'.  A reasonable position.

I did not find his comments terribly objectionable.  I don't agree with them, but his positions are neither terribly extreme nor based on misinformation (his post about the CFR of COVID being the same as the flu and about the virus attenuating are obviously incorrect in retrospect, but he probably was basing those comments off of a report made optimistically with incomplete data. 

On the scale of 1 to 10, I think he is maybe a 6 on the covidiot scale.  He did not actually advocate against masking, distancing, or vaccines, but was arguing against shutdowns, overreaction and invasive government intervention.  Not as bad as most

Also, it was annoying to read him biatching about having fitness centers and restaurants
having to shut down because of it and his ignorance about not knowing where his outbreak
came from.

Never any insight, consistently projecting, every malady is from somewhere else, never from
their "righteousness"and Matthew 7.5 concerns someone else obviously.

The miracle was not just one, but multiple vaccines. A lot of idiots never got the memo.

I suggest all the Pastors refusing the vaccine and forgoing masks for in-person services go back and remind themselves of Exodus 20:13.
 
2021-09-19 6:08:18 AM  
Here is a quote from a doctor he seemed to trust:

Now, if someone does not have natural immunity from prior infection, then they should immediately go out and get the vaccine.

Guess he only read what he wanted to read. The same doctor, however, was wrong about the unvaccinated posing no risk to the vaccinated as deaths due to unavailable ICU beds is demonstrating.

The unvaccinated also pose a risk of infection to the vaccinated. Vaccination is not a miracle get-out-of-jail-free card. You can still get infected, still carry the virus, and still infect other people if you are vaccinated. It's just that the odds are more in your favor, and any resulting sickness is less intense.

Yeah no. I'm not with you on "he wasn't that bad." He played pied piper to antivax morons. I don't care what his rhetorical strategy was if the end result is exactly the farking same: he gave people an excuse to act dangerously and selfishly.

Glad he's wormfood.

I love that all of these pastors and right-wing radio hosts are dying and somehow it's not a message from God to get the vaccine, but instead to shiat-post harder.
