Right-wing broadcaster Rick Wiles has been hospitalised with Covid-19 after saying that vaccines would wipe out ‘stupid people’

(TruNews) More

Rick Wiles, a right-wing Christian talk show host and anti-vaxxer has been hospitalised with Covid-19 after saying vaccines would wipe out “stupid people”.

Less than a month ago, Mr Wiles said he would never get vaccinated. His website, TruNews, announced over the weekend that had been infected and taken to hospital where he had been given oxygen. The announcement was reported by Right Wing Watch.

TruNews has pushed conspiracy theorists considered to be racist, antisemitic, homophobic, and Islamophobic. The outlet has called President Obama a “demon from hell” multiple times. Mr Wiles has said that Mr Obama “spiritually sodomised the nation”.

The right-wing broadcaster told his audience last month that he wasn’t getting vaccinated because he believed the vaccines were being used to commit a “genocide,” to kill hundreds of millions of people

“I am not going to be vaccinated,” Mr Wiles said. “I’m going to be one of the survivors. I’m going to survive the genocide ... The only good thing that will come out of this is a lot of stupid people will be killed off. If the vaccine wipes out a lot of stupid people, well, we’ll have a better world.”

Had a fairly interesting discussion with an elderly neighbour yesterday.

He's convinced we'll see a 3rd wave and a return to restrictions later in the summer/early Autumn.

I'm far from convinced this will materialise.

While cases have continued to rise with the recent relaxation there's been next to no rise in ICU admissions and deaths have dropped to next to nothing.

Hospital admissions have also hardly risen with the majority of these, in Scotland, being in the 25-44 age group.

This reflects the age group slightly behind in the vaccinations, which can only reduce as this improves. 

Anyhow, 2nd jag for me tonight and that's me well on the road to invincibility. :wink:

The prospect of a holiday abroad are looking slightly better for us in October. :thumbs2

Well the third wave idea is certainly gaining support but as JL says, how big will it be?  
As for restrictions ?  I f**king hope not 😡 .  
Other scientific advisors are also saying we will see a third wave but many saying we can’t continue to lock ourselves away every time we see a surge .    
I’m going to Lanzarote in September -  f**k off Covid 🤬

As I said, any "surges" will, hopefully, only be in cases, not resulting on serious illness or deaths.

If so there's no need, IMO, for any further restrictions.

We live with it, like the flu and other viruses.

Portugal now off the green list, leaving us with next to no real choices for a holiday abroad.

I've said previously, the current "faf" that surrounds going away, tests, masks, more tests, make going away out of the question for us.

Even though I got my 2nd jag last night we're having two holidays at home, late July/early August.

I've got a weeks holiday in October, hoping that holidays abroad will be "normal" by that time.

If not, I might be able to delay that week and take it late November where Tenerife would be my destination.

FOFF Covid, we've had enough.

I should add, my 2nd jag last night was absolutely perfect, felt next to nothing, the first one was a bit more painful.

No side effects as yet, last time I was just tired but, so far, nothing, although I could have slept through any minor issues. 

Just checked on the NHS Scotland site, yip, both jags recorded so, if I need evidence it's right there. :thumbs2

Stupid site isn't allowing me to reschedule. Might be cause I've already changed it 3 times to get earlier times/dates.

Funnily enough my second jag I barely noticed whilst I struggled for a day after my first.

Wasn't looking for a foreign holiday since i am hoping to get into America in late Sep so the red/green option doesn't bother me at the moment.

So decided since the weather is decent, i will do 4 nights up north next week.

Thought about Skye until i looked at the prices of hotels  :shockaroony

So back to Inverness for the 1st time in 11 years, and with few foreign tourist about, the roads around the area should be quieter than normal.

That is a bit of a broad brush statement

a lot of christians, and other faith followers, are doing their bit to deliver care and administer vaccines as they follow their beliefs.

There's perhaps an argument on why a faith is required for them to do such good deeds or why the fact they believe in a god is relevant to said deeds.

Who said a faith is required?  doing something good that happens to coincide with your religious beliefs is no different from doing it because you have been taught.

you are only talking about someone following an example. I dont belong to any religion but respect the fact that so many people follow their teachings and help others.

the relevance lies in the point made by Gilhooley, basically dissing a whole swathe of people because of the misdeeds of someone who purports to follow, but clearly doesn't subscribe to the values, of a particular belief.  Wiles is an opportunist playing on people's fears and prejudices and might as well have worn the clothes of a politician or social activist as those of a christian.  His behaviour shouldn't reflect on the millions of decent people that call themselves christians

If they were truly following the teachings they would be stoning unruly children and getting their slaves from the nations around them.

One of the main problems with religion, especially Christianity, is that followers believe that they get their morals from their god/book but they really (mostly) act in a morally superior way to the teachings, showing that they are actually more moral than the thing they think they get their morals from. The nutters from the likes of the Westboro Baptist Church and the NIFB are actually following the teachings closer than most "mainstream" Christians.

I think the main point is that it doesn't take religion/faith/teaching for people to help others, it takes compasion and that is a human trait, not the sole preserve of people of religion/faith.

It’s a can of worms subject, personally I don’t think Christian beliefs or values are as virtuous as you make out.
 

It’s a faith (like practically all others) born out of intolerance & the barbaric practices of a less developed people.

It is, is it?
Stated as fact!
Less developed than what?
Low EQ narcissists who insist on the last word on a football forum every time?

Nobody has said good deeds are unique to people with a belief, but if that belief motivates good deeds, I don't have a problem.

Or is it only live and let live as long as it is something we approve of?

There is no doubt that bad things happen in the name of religion... but bad things happen in the name of freedom all over the world.

In the name of non religious beliefs.

In the name of animal rights!

Why single out "Christian beliefs"?
