I have just learned that this is an old story. Sorry, they all run together after awhile.

Texas man who argued 'masks aren’t going to save you' contracts COVID-19, no longer breathes on own

As the delta variant continues to spread across the country, unvaccinated individuals are facing the worst of it. Many of those who once organized against pandemic safety measures like wearing masks and getting vaccinated are now battling the virus in hospitals. In one incident, a Texas man who helped organize protests against COVID-19 restrictions is fighting for his life after being hospitalized for almost a month, the San Angelo Standard-Times reported.

“He’s not doing good. It’s not looking in our favor,” said Caleb Wallace’s wife, Jessica. “His lungs are stiff due to the fibrosis. They called and said they’ve run out of options for him and asked if I would consent to a do not resuscitate. And it would be up to us when to stop treatments,” Jessica wrote Wednesday on Facebook. “My heart just can’t. I can’t imagine my life without him.”

“Caleb would tell me, ‘You know masks aren’t going to save you,’ but he understood I wanted to wear them,” Jessica said. Jessica told the Standard-Times that she was “less conservative” than her husband and chose to wear a mask. “It gives me comfort to know that maybe, just maybe, I’m either protecting someone or avoiding it myself.”

Founder of “The San Angelo Freedom Defenders,” a group that hosted a rally last year to “end COVID tyranny,” Wallace reportedly helped organize multiple anti-mask and vaccine rallies including one called “The Freedom Rally,” which occurred days before he began experiencing symptoms. The event prided itself in being a protest against the “government being in control of our lives.”

I'm all out of shits to give for these people.

5. When you are no longer breathing on your own and the hospital asks your family to sign a DNR ...

... order you are more then likely dead or soon will be. I hope his family gets to enjoy his Free-Dumbs.

10. I cannot find it now,

but there's a video of him threatening, bullying, and harassing a poor lady at the DMV over masks. They call a deputy, rightly, and he's an asshole to him.

Mr. Wallace tells this poor civil servant she'll be up "shit's creek" , and threatens to sue and get her in trouble. I'm sure she's earning the big bucks.

He was very nasty

16. He left three daughters under 6, and a 4th about to be born.

I can't feel bad for him, but I feel bad for the orphans.

4. Phew, you really have to wonder what makes these people tick. They must be

17. They don't vaccinate against TB, at least not in this country.

I did used to get the skin test for it as a kid, and also as a healthcare worker. My sons have never even been tested for it.

15. Sorry I just saw "it" today from Daily Kos.

Although after awhile these right wing Pastor, talk show host, anti vaxx, anti science,
free DUMB patriots, and so on dying of C-19 stories all run together.
