Anti-vax, election conspiracy theory-promoting GOPer joins the "f'ed around and found out" club


(Detroit Free Press) William Hartmann, the Republican member of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers who made national headlines for initially refusing to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election, died Tuesday following a battle with COVID-19.

Douglas Reimel, Hartmannís friend, shared the news on Facebook, and others who knew Hartmann offered their condolences online. Hartmann was 63.

Hartmann's fight with COVID-19 landed him in the ICU, where he was on a ventilator, according to a Facebook post from Elizabeth Hartmann, his sister. He was hospitalized at Wyandotte Hospital, according to Reimel. A spokesperson for the hospital did not immediately respond to a request for details.

Hartmann's death comes amid the latest surge in COVID-19 in Michigan that has filled hospital beds across the state. Michigan remains the nation's worst COVID-19 hot spot, leading the country in cases in recent weeks, according to the CDC. ..........(more)

7. Yup....

In one Facebook post, Hartmann appeared to question the efficacy of the vaccine. "If the ouchie is so great, why do they have to offer bribes?" he wrote. In others, he referred to COVID-19 as the "wuflu" and suggested that Democrats were using the pandemic "to scare the public."

5. .......


...On Facebook, Hartmann was an avid Trump supporter and anti-vaxxer, downplaying the severity of the pandemic and the effectiveness of vaccines.

"If the ouchie is so great, why do they have to offer bribes?" he wrote in one post.

Hartmann's death comes as COVID-19 is surging in Michigan, which has led the nation in cases since November, with hospitals stretched to capacity. Michigan's surge is being largely driven by unvaccinated people, experts say. ....

18. I tried to understand the logic of anti vaxxers/anti-maskers . . . . .

but I can't. Is it because they believe they will be martyrs, heroes? it's crazy. Anywho, I would say let them kill each other off, but alas, good people are also affected with this insanity.

20. They believe they are defending freedom, but purposely avoid responsibility that comes w freedom


They also believe the vaxes are not vaccine because they are mRNA, not killed-virus.

They believe the vaccines are "experimental" despite nine (9) years of development before Covid came along.

They believe the vaccines kill twice as many people as the virus.
