Ls&Cs: Vaccine Regrets and Horse Paste

Have a backlog of links, of course, with new ones now that Christians in Texas are coming closer to matching the achievement of the Taliban in Afghanistan. But for now, a trend of the past couple weeks: right-wing vaccine deniers who are dying of covid, sometimes with regrets, sometimes with denial to the bitter end.

I suspect no stories like these are appearing on Fox News or its imitators.

The first two were Phil Valentine, in Nashville, and Dick Farrel, from Florida.

The gay news website Joe.My.God has a long string of these, mocking the victims’ denials — they “died of something” — because anti-vaxxers tend also to be self-righteously anti-gay.
