Saturday, July 11, 2020

Richard Rose passed away on July 4 from complications of COVID-19, just a few days after he tested positive for the coronavirus. Now posts are going viral online that show him saying he didn't believe in wearing masks back in April.

Bravo, Richard Rose.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

If you look at the witchcraft mania of the 17th Century, you see interesting parallels between black magic hysteria and what these Trumpites do. If they could, they'd burn people.

It's too bad that it takes somebody dying to wake people up.

But unfortunately that's their choice.

Yeah, my reaction as well...
Easy to find people's relatives in small towns with low social mobility levels.

#1-3 It is easy to make fun of Trumps victims, but that ignores the crimes of the Reich wing propaganda machine.

Covid victims should sue Fox and Trump into oblivion.

This seems optimistic to me.

Or lynch them.
Or gas them.

And just so Deplorables don't feel left out, they might make it so they can't say bigoted things on social media without losing their jobs too.

Because that's just as bad, or maybe worse, than gassing and lynching people, when you're a Deplorable.

You'll literally hear Deplorables cry that someone's life has been destroyed, after they say bigoted things on social media and lose their jobs.

It's just like Texas Lieutenant governor Governor Dan Patrick says, "Some things are more important than living." Like being able to say bigoted things on social media and keep your job.

If that's worth dying for, then it's also worth killing for.

Which is why Zed is right.
If they could, they'd burn people.
Because some things are more important than living.

At least he got a few laughs at the expense of those stupid Libs before he died of their hoax.

"Rose's family said he tested positive for COVID-19 on July 1 and died just three days later. Rose's family said he had no known pre-existing health conditions."

All those saying (and the Gov of Florida) saying "you're under 55, no pre-existing health conditions? You'll be fine!" aren't just idiots, they're deadly idiots.

Karma's a bitch and then you die. Time to update the Darwin awards.

I am thankful for his social media presence I hope that his experience saves lives.

Useful new word: Maskhole.

Bye Richard.
If you run into my Grandma, say hi.

Somebody needs to tell him it's a democratic hoax.

If it was just him I'd just say it's Darwin at work. But how many other people did he kill wandering around without a mask spraying virus?

Was this guy really an activist?

Because it sure seems like he was or just a guy who didn't wear a mask because partying was more important than living.

I wouldn't have used the word "activist" to describe him, either.

in-activist maybe?

So Dick died because he was being a "Dick"

#25 | Posted by LauraMohr at 2020-07-11 07:57 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 1

I think Laura has it.

He was a dick. Read his tweets and he's the same person that's causing the spike in so many states. Arrogant, entitled, knows better, invincible, don't bother me with fact or truth, you can't tell me what to do, and it's all "hype" (hoax).

His friends can mourn his loss, but if they don't learn from it, I don't have any sympathy for them.

This afternoon, I saw some video of people protesting the wearing of masks.

A couple of comments...

1) there were six or seven people in the protest. Many fewer than a month ago.

2) the tonality of their voices as they chanted was very different. It did not have the forceful tonality of people who believe in what they are saying. It seemed to have the tonality of people who were not there because they wanted to be there.

As I watched, it was the second comment above that I could not understand. Why were they there if they did not convey their cause?

Weird.

#22, 23...
He felt the need to express his distaste for wearing masks, to spread his opinion. To me that makes him an activist.

#28 | Posted by TFDNihilist at 2020-07-11 09:54 PM | Reply

If he attended or otherwise involved himself with "Masks Are For --------" rallies, I'd call him an activist.

If he just pasted on Facebook, he's no activist. Just a thug.

Now that Dick Rose is dead his ghost can come back a munch on Dirty Donnie's lil Orange mushroom anytime he wants. He may have to pry Ivankas lips off it first.

Fact:

Yesterday, Florida had more newly diagnosed cases in one day than South Korea has in total had since the pandemic began.

My friend was adamant this wasn't an issue. We went golfing, had a good time. Now he's seeing people showing up dead in the headlines who are in their 30s.

Wake up, bud. This isn't the average flu.

I think I want a mask that has words printed on it basically saying that if you won't wear one don't expect sympathy from me when you get sick. I am sort of sick of these a******s. Sorry he died I guess but at some point my willingness to pretend to be sorry for someone who doesn't deserve it wears out.

Hundreds of thousands of dead Americans say,

"ITS TOO LATE TO APOLOGIZE."

Nature makes Trumpers....
Nature makes Trumpers gullable and prone to conspiracies...
Nature makes virus... Trumpers too smart for all that mask fascism and rebel
Trumpers go away, the human species evolves.
Might just be part of Gods plan.
Hallelujah!
