The Maine Beacon reported that on Tuesday, Chris Johansen appeared at the anti-vaccine activist rally at the Augusta state capitol building along with "Conservative lawmakers including Reps. Heidi Sampson (R-Alfred), Tracy Quint (R-Hodgdon), Laurel Libby (R-Auburn), Assistant House Republican Leader Joel Stetkis (R-Canaan) and Republican Sen. Lisa Kiem (Oxford) spoke at the event." The event included conspiracy theories being spewed out by conservative speakers; for example, Rep. Heidi Sampson's assertions that this was all a ploy to test out experimental vaccines. Sampson compared Democratic Gov. Janet Mills to Josef Mengele"the Nazi doctor who experimented on Jewish prisoners during the Holocaust.

They can't live with the truth so they try to smear it on someone else.

At what point do the relatives and loved ones of those who died because they listened to the conspiracy theorists get to start suing the conspiracy theorists for causing unnecessary death?

I can't post what I actually think about this but I think I can tell you this, if this jerk were in my family he would be physically attacked. What a complete jerk. There is just no excuse for him after his wife just died from COVID. I am sure his relatives are just mortified and I feel for them.

May they be reunited very soon.

I don't understand people. Your wife dies of Covid and you then attend an anti-vax rally maskless. I cannot come up with a single reasonable explanation for such behavior.

These effing people are not fit to hold office, and this ----- needs a trip for the woodshed for far more than a whack with a chunk of firewood. A cord stuck in his fat keister, maybe?

When your only belief is that liberals are wrong about everything, you can't admit they were right about anything no matter how much evidence there is. Because if they're right about one thing, it implies that they could be right about much more.

So now conservatives have to choose between dying of covid or admitting liberals were right, which could possibly result in universal healthcare, climate change legislation, or other conservative nightmares.

Brilliant post. Encapsulates the entire argument perfectly.

I bet he had a life insurance policy on her, he's probably $250k richer today, and ready to party, POS.

Republicans now love owning the libs more than they love their wives.

I think we're beyond the owning the libs phase. Based on the bonkers testimony I see regularly on TV of GQP adherents at school board or council meetings, I believe this is mass delusion, we are at the point in the story where the cult is begging Jim Jones to give them the grape Koolaid. Almost every single easily duped rube, conspiracy believer, and the insane have has found a home among the RepubliCONS, and their GQP representatives are scared to death of them. They are about to rain down terror and violence on this country in the next year if Dotard and his acolytes aren't locked up! Something has to break this spell.

Anyone still remember
"Compassionate Conservatism"
and a "thousand points of light"?

Yeah, me neither...
