On Friday July 31, 2020, Texas State Republican Executive Committee member and Dickinson City Council member H. Scott Apley posted yet another meme mocking COVID-19 and vaccination on his Facebook page. On Sunday August 1st he was admitted to a hospital for pneumonia-like symptoms, tested positive for COVID-19, and was placed on a ventilator. On Wednesday he was dead from COVID-19.

Good riddance.

When not spreading anti-vax memes on Facebook, H. Scott spent some of his quality time attacking medical doctors on Twitter for their efforts to prevent people from dying.

As we're heading into the fourth wave of COVID-19 in the United States, and people are being asked to mask up, keep socially distant, and stay away from crowds, remember that 99.5% of the people dying from COVID-19 are unvaccinated.

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."

To get things back to normal the best thing you can do is get vaccinated, and then go out and socialize! Go to a restaurant, the movies, a concert, the gym. Don't wear a mask, close-talk with friends and total 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 Texas State Republican Executive Committee member and Dickinson City Council member, H. Scott Apley.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
