Conservative radio host Phil Valentine dies of COVID-19 after mocking vaccines
Although conservative radio host Phil Valentine mocked the virus and the vaccine on his radio show, as soon as he was the one in the emergency room he quickly had a change of heart. Valentine was a skeptic of the vaccine, but his brother Mark told a local news station in Nashville that Phil regretted not getting the shot soon after he was hospitalized.
Phil Valentine tested positive for COVID-19 in mid-July. At first he felt fine, then later not so much. He was soon hospitalized, had one last conversation with his brother Mark, was placed on a ventilator, and then very slowly suffocated to death as the virus attacked and destroyed his lungs. He was on the ventilator for an entire month, then died last Saturday.
As I've been saying over and over and over again, we can slow the virus down and reduce the load on hospitals by masking up and keeping socially distant, but to get things back to normal more people will need to get vaccinated, and the number one reason that the vaccine-hesitant become vaccine-takers is because someone they personally know and care about died from the virus. That's literally the only way that anti-vaxxers figure out that maybe they should get vaccinated, when someone they know dies and it occurs to them "that could have been ME."
Phil Valentine's death is another case that proves that this is true. Now Phil's family is giving public interviews, telling people that "Phil got it wrong" and encouraging people to get vaccinated. Even Mark Valentine decided to get vaccinated after watching his brother die a slow and horrible death, and he didn't come from the sharpest of gene pools.
Mark Valentine said he wants his brother's death to be the reason others get vaccinated. He doesn't want any more families to feel this pain, although we'll never know how many people already died because they listened to a dumb ass radio personality who didn't know what the fuck he was talking about. People who died needlessly, when there are multiple safe and effective vaccines available, because they listened to Phil Valentine's radio show.
99.5% of the people now dying from COVID-19 are unvaccinated. To get things back to normal the best thing you can do is get vaccinated, and then go out and mingle! Go to a night club, a restaurant, a concert, the gym. Don't wear a mask and start conversations with complete strangers! As more unvaccinated folks get sick and die, more vaccine-hesitant people will become vaccine-takers. As the number of unvaccinated people gets smaller and smaller the virus will stop spreading.
If we all do our part, we can stop this disease, and kill off a lot of annoying, stupid people at the same time. People like conservative radio host Phil Valentine.
