A right-wing Florida pastor was hospitalized with Covid-19, weeks after
saying vaccination efforts were part of a "mass death campaign."

The pastor, Rick Wiles, wrote Tuesday on TruNews.com, where he
propagates homophobic, racist and other hateful conspiracy theories,
that he had Covid-19-related pneumonia and difficulty breathing. He said
that he was being released from the hospital later that day but that his
wife was "still very fatigued."

He added that his daughter-in-law was in the hospital with extreme
dehydration and vomiting and that at least four other family members,
including his grandson, had developed Covid-19-related symptoms. At
least three TruNews team members were also recovering from the virus, he
wrote.

"This was a full-frontal hit from Hell on your TruNews family," Wiles
wrote. "Because Jesus Christ lives in us, we shall live too. Your
prayers needed for the above family members and team.

"Thanks to Jesus Christ, I survived the CCP Covid genocide on the
American people," he added, apparently referring to the Chinese
Communist Party.

About a month ago, Wiles said he was "not going to be vaccinated."

"I'm going to be one of the survivors. I'm going to survive the
genocide," he said in an interview posted to TruNews. "I am not going to
allow the Covid maniacs to convince me to be vaccinated or vaccinate me
against my will."

I know what I'm reading. I know what I'm seeing," Wiles said, adding
that "there is a mass death campaign underway right now" and that "the
only good thing that will come out of this is that a lot of stupid
people will be killed off."

Wiles is the pastor of Flowing Streams Church, a nondenominational
congregation in Vero Beach, Florida.

In January 2020, he said Covid-19 was God's way of punishing China for
having a "godless communist government."

He warned that God's judgment would come down on America because of "the
spiritual rebellion that is in this country," including "transgendering
little children."

Fox News and other right-wing outlets ramp up anti-vaccine scare
campaign After the Biden administration announces “door-to-door”
community outreach to save lives, conservative personalities melt down

COMMENT

The White House has been stepping up its community outreach efforts for
the coronavirus vaccines, with President Joe Biden announcing an effort
to get ahead of emerging variants in a speech on July 6. But at the same
time as many public health experts say there should be even more
stringent requirements for people to get vaccinated, right-wing media
outlets are instead waging their own scare campaign against even the
community outreach, continuing their shameful record of undermining the
vaccination campaigns.

Polling data has shown that Republican voters are far less likely than
Democrats to even want to get the vaccines, seriously contributing to
the country having missed Biden’s goal for 70% of adults to have been
vaccinated by July 4. (Most of the states that fell short were won by
former President Donald Trump in 2020, while the states that have
surpassed the goal were all won by Biden.)

But conservative media figures have quickly seized on one particular
line from Biden’s speech on Tuesday, in which he appealed to people to
get vaccinated as “a patriotic thing to do.”

“Now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by
neighborhood, and oftentimes, door to door — literally knocking on doors
— to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” Biden
said. “Look, equity, equality — it remains at the heart of our
responsibility of ensuring that communities that are the hardest hit by
the virus have the information and the access to get vaccinated.”

Now, right-wing media is engaged in a dishonest and irresponsible spin
operation, warning people that the government is coming to get them with
the vaccine.

Tucker Carlson’s newest line: Saving lives with the vaccine is worse
than the Iraq War Fox News prime-time host Tucker Carlson, who has led a
propaganda campaign in concert with anti-vaccine conspiracy theorists
and with Fox’s full corporate support, fearmongered about Biden’s speech
during his program on Tuesday night.

Following a segment in which he claimed the pandemic had been
“overhyped” because most deaths occurred in the elderly — though this
argument also disregarded other adverse effects associated with “long
COVID” — Carlson warned anyone who might come knocking to promote the
vaccine to “stay the hell out of my house, for real.” Carlson then
claimed that a door-to-door vaccine promotion campaign was a “much
bigger” scandal than even the Iraq War.

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So, because this disease -- the median age in
Ohio of death is 80, your 15-year-old needs to have Joe Biden's health
authority show up at your house with a needle. I mean, I don't — this is
the — I think — I honestly think it's the greatest scandal in my
lifetime by far. I thought the Iraq War was, it seems much bigger than
that.

The idea that you would force people to take medicine they don't want or
need, is there a precedent for that in our lifetimes?

BRIT HUME (FOX NEWS SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST): Well, look to be fair, it
seems to me that what they're doing is — what their argument would be,
Tucker, that what they're trying to do is make it as easy as possible
for people to get the vaccine and, for people who are hesitant, to
perhaps encourage them that they have nothing to fear. However, you
know, vaccines do have side effects.

This after all is not yet an FDA-approved medicine. This is operating
under a temporary use — a temporary emergency-use authorization. Perhaps
it will in the future be authorized, fully authorized by the FDA, fully
approved. But it's not yet, and if people — it seems to me, if people
are hesitant to take it, particularly if they're not in the vulnerable
category, it seems to me that's not an unreasonable thing and should be
respected.

So that's what I would have to say about that.

CARLSON: Yeah, not letting kids get education if they're not vaccinated.
Pretty amazing.

Fox’s far-right competitors were not to be outdone Tuesday night,
either. One America News warned its viewers that “the Biden
administration is threatening to send political operatives to the homes
of people who refuse to take an experimental COVID vaccine.” Newsmax
host Grant Stinchfield declared, “Hey, Joe, how about no — and I'm the
guy that steps out onto my porch and calmly asks you to get off my
lawn,” even as Stinchfield capped off a defense of people refusing the
“vaccine Kool-Aid” being pushed by both government agencies and
businesses.

Newsmax contributor: Wait, shouldn’t we be giving Trump credit for the
vaccine? During a Wednesday morning panel discussion, however, it was
disgraced former MSNBC analyst and Newsmax contributor Mark Halperin who
reminded other conservative commentators that they ought to be promoting
the vaccines on behalf of former President Trump.

“I think this is the depths of partisan lunacy,” Halperin told former
Trump administration staffer Hogan Gidley, who had been denouncing the
“government overreach” of the vaccination campaigns and defending people
for not trusting the expert advice.

“With all due respect to Hogan — Hogan, who developed the vaccine?”
asked Halperin. “Your former boss, President Trump doesn't get nearly
enough credit for what he did to unshackle the administration and the
regulation and allowed these private-sector companies to go forward. The
vaccines are, by historical standards, effective and safe, and everybody
should get them. If people don't want to get them, it's their choice,
but everybody should get them.”

People are “up in arms” — at least according to Fox & Friends
Meanwhile, the manufactured outrage continued on Fox & Friends, with
co-host Ainsley Earhardt declaring: “People are up in arms about this,
because we as Americans can make our own choices for our own families,
for our own bodies. And when someone’s knocking at your door with a
vaccine — are they going to have the shot in their hand? Or are they
going to encourage you to go, ask you questions like the Census Bureau
does?"

Co-host Brian Kilmeade also warned of negative side effects from the
vaccines.

“More and more people are saying — I'm not saying it’s an epidemic and a
problem — but no one addresses the fact that there are some people
having negative reactions,” Kilmeade said, discussing worries about
vaccine requirements being imposed for sports at his own daughters’
schools.

“How scary is that for you as a parent,” Earhardt said, “because you’re
hearing all these kids that are having heart problems, inflammation.”

Despite what Kilmeade and Earhardt said, media outlets and experts are
indeed addressing these questions: The New York Times reported in late
June that researchers had “estimated that out of a million second doses
given to boys ages 12 to 17, the vaccines might cause a maximum of 70
myocarditis cases, but would prevent 5,700 infections, 215
hospitalizations and two deaths.”

In a later segment, Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Marc Siegel — who
had previously downplayed the pandemic and publicly supported various
missteps by Trump — attempted to play a political game of gotcha: “I
don't think we have to allow Biden on our door with a syringe yet and
say here's a vaccine — after he doubted the vaccine to begin with.”
(Siegel appeared to be referring to statements Biden made during the
2020 campaign, saying he would trust scientists on the vaccine but not
Trump’s promises to have a vaccine distributed in time before the
election.)

Fox medical contributor: Vaccines will save lives — but knocking on
doors “goes to the core of our country” And during America’s Newsroom on
Wednesday, co-anchor Dana Perino spoke with Fox medical contributor Dr.
Nicole Saphier, with the two actually talking about the importance of
educating the public about vaccines — but Saphier argued that the
appearance of compulsion and being “confrontational” about it would go
against “the core of our country.”

DANA PERINO (CO-ANCHOR): I also noted today, in The Washington Post it
said in Maryland, 100 people died of COVID in June in Maryland — and
100% of them were unvaccinated. And that was one of the things that the
president was trying to say yesterday, I suppose.

DR. NICOLE SAPHIER (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, and that’s not just
Maryland, that’s many states across the country, and other countries are
seeing that as well. Yes, the deaths that are still occurring from
SARS-Cov2 tend to be those that are unvaccinated. So, the best way to
protect people is to get vaccinated.

But again, this is a freedom of choice, and that is what is very
important. It goes to the core of our country. When you turn on other
media outlets, you actually hear people calling for requiring them --
and mandates. And if — you can't declare independence and the freedom to
choose vaccination and then require them as well and say we’re going to
be sending government officials. These are conversations that need to be
had between physicians and patients and not by low-level grassroots
people knocking on doors.

Mollie Hemingway: Just stop trying — and declare it a “win”
Co-anchor Bill Hemmer spoke later in the program with Fox News
contributor Mollie Hemingway, who has spent much of the pandemic era
undermining public efforts around mask-wearing and previously denounced
Biden’s July 4 goal as “just so un-American.” So it might seem odd that
Hemingway was brought on by a purported “news side” program to discuss
the matter at all.

This time around, Hemingway’s advice was for Biden to essentially “take
the win” by moving his own goalposts.

MOLLIE HEMINGWAY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): More importantly, vaccine —
vaccination rates among the vulnerable populations, older people and
people with comorbidities, is really high. And so, President Biden needs
to just take the win. I know he missed his own personal goal for
vaccination rates, but we’ve done a good job, and he should accept that
and keep going forward.

BILL HEMMER (CO-ANCHOR): We can still get there, probably get there
pretty soon actually.

Of course, the strategy of simply trying to do nothing and declare
victory goes back a long way during the pandemic — and it kept failing.

Fox’s “straight news” side and opinion hosts push the same scare
campaign On Wednesday’s edition of The Story with Martha MacCallum,
guest anchor Trace Gallagher opened a segment by likening “door-to-door
vaccine pushers” to door-to-door salesmen. Gallagher then ended a
discussion with Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Will Cain by quoting an
old line from Ronald Reagan about being afraid of the government —
sounding remarkably similar to a tweet sent by a right-wing U.S.
representative about an hour-and-a-half earlier.

TRACE GALLAGHER (FOX NEWS ANCHOR): Yup. Ronald Reagan once said, “The
government's at your door saying, ‘We're here to help.’ And that's when


(CROSSTALK)

WILL CAIN (CO-HOST, Fox & Friends Weekend): The scariest thing you could
hear. Right?

GALLAGHER: Right.

CAIN: That's right.

Things only got worse that night. In a segment titled “Power Grabs &
Needle Jabs, Laura Ingraham connected the vaccination campaign to the
conspiracy theory of “global resetters” purportedly involved in COVID-19
public health protocols, and praised Americans for “wising up” by
refusing the vaccines. (The monologue also featured a cartoonish visual
of Biden holding a needle to a crying baby. Just to be clear, the
COVID-19 vaccines have thus far been recommended for children ages 12
and up, not for infants.)

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Every day, the barbarity of the left's COVID
lockdowns and school closures becomes more apparent. The great global
resetters, who love seeing us shut in and shut up, who were fine with
seeing our economy destroyed, and even turning kids into screen zombies.
The political forces that exploited health fears, the medical officials
who became stars by helping them, and the media that covered for them
all. All of them should be held accountable.

Now, it took a while, but Americans are wising up to this charade. Yet,
despite everything the experts either got wrong or lied about, they
still think that parents should trust them and inject their kids with an
experimental drug to prevent a disease almost none of those kids will
ever get sick from.



Going door-to-door? This is creepy stuff. You know, someone comes up to
your door, outside wearing a mask, showing up at your house, claiming to
work for the government, asking you personal medical questions. What
could possibly go wrong there?

By the way, are these government vaccine ambassadors going to ask people
about their vaccine status? What sort of notes will they take on each
door-to-door encounter? And what will be done with those notes? How will
this information be used? These are all important questions that bear
directly on matters of personal medical privacy.

And on Fox & Friends, Kilmeade warned again: “They’re going to be
knocking on your doors, I guess with a cotton ball and a needle, and
they’re going to look to put a needle into your deltoid — stop asking
questions.”

Kilmeade then responded to a video of Dr. Anthony Fauci the night before
on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, urging people to “get over this
political statement” of not taking the vaccine, and instead to “try and
save the lives of yourself and your family.”

Kilmeade then got nearly to the same point that Halperin did the day
before: “How about saying, ‘I just have to underline the fact that this
vaccine was driven by the Trump administration, and conducted by and
pushed forward by Operation Warp Speed. It was put together by the
previous administration, and implemented by this one.’ As much as they
want you vaccinated, they are determined not to let you know who came up
with it.”

In response, though, Earhardt continued to warn of harmful side effects
from the vaccines, and then Hegseth cued up a video clip from Ingraham’s
show the night before, in which a guest claimed that “no one under age
of 30” should get the vaccines.

So it appears that right-wing media have arrived at a new resolution of
competing ideas: The vaccines are one of the great accomplishments of
the Trump administration, for which Trump is being denied his personal
credit — and they are also very dangerous, and people shouldn’t take
them.

Niggers defeated Trump in November and now he's gone crazy because his next
interaction with one will be in his prison cell with a black dick up his ass.

Rightists like shooting up black churches and burning them to the ground.

Dylann Storm Roof[1] (born April 3, 1994) is an American white supremacist,
neo-Nazi and mass murderer convicted for perpetrating the Charleston church
shooting on June 17, 2015, in the U.S. state of South Carolina.[2][3] During
a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Roof killed nine
people, all African Americans, including senior pastor and state senator
Clementa C. Pinckney, and injured one other person. After several people
identified Roof as the main suspect, he became the center of a manhunt that
ended the morning after the shooting with his arrest in Shelby, North
Carolina. He later confessed that he committed the shooting in hopes of
igniting a race war.[4] Roof's actions in Charleston have been widely
described as domestic terrorism.[5]

Three days after the shooting, a website titled The Last Rhodesian was
discovered and later confirmed by officials to be owned by Roof. The website
contained photos of Roof posing with symbols of white supremacy and neo-
Nazism, along with a manifesto in which he outlined his views toward black
people, among other peoples. He also claimed in the manifesto to have
developed his white supremacist views after reading about the 2012 killing of
Trayvon Martin and black-on-white crime.

On December 15, 2016, Roof was convicted in federal court of all 33 federal
charges (including hate crimes) against him stemming from the shooting; on
January 11, 2017, he was sentenced to death for those crimes.[6] On March 31,
2017, Roof agreed to plead guilty in South Carolina state court to all state
charges pending against him—nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted
murder, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony—to
avoid a second death sentence. In return, he accepted a sentence of life in
prison without parole.[7] On April 10, 2017, Roof was sentenced to nine
consecutive sentences of life without parole after formally pleading guilty
to state murder charges.[8][9][10]
