Nashville radio host Phil Valentine dies at 61 after battling COVID-19

Source: The Tennessean

Outspoken vaccine skeptic Phil Valentine has died a month after his COVID-19 diagnosis captured national attention and led to his public change of heart on vaccines.

"We are saddened to report that our host and friend Phil Valentine has passed away," Super Talk 99.7, who employed the popular conservative talk radio host, wrote on Twitter on Saturday. "Please keep the Valentine family in your thoughts and prayers."

Valentine, 61, announced on Facebook on July 11 he had COVID-19 and predicted he would survive. Days later, Valentine's relatives said he was very sick, and he wanted listeners to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

(...)

Valentine, a radio personality since he was 20, became a popular conservative Nashville talk show host in 2001 by railing against a state income tax proposed then by Republican Gov. Don Sundquist.

7. It appears so.. so Ironic or bizarre that

"owning the libs" would come down to such a deadly game.

21. Not only did he discourage getting the vaccines or wearing masks.

He denied there was even a pandemic until Trump caught it, or there abouts.

Killed by virus he didn't even believe in. But Covid-19 believed in him.

14. The promoters of anti-mask, vaccine and bullying Democrats....

These folks do not have any of my empathy....they are all intelligent enough to know that what they say has power and influence...people listened to his pounding of faux covid, no need for a mask no vaccine...."Reap what you sow"...is a fair statement.... Others have died...suffered as a direct result of such media pulpit misinformation because they made profit off it...

11. His timeline mirrors Herman Cain's ...

No 1: Covid is a hoax.

No 2: Covid is real, but it's no worse than the flu.

No 3: Forcing me to wear a mask is communism.

No 4: Trump is a genus for inventing a vaccine.

No 5: I'm not taking any vaccine because I don't trust Dr. Fauci, and
forcing me to take a vaccine is communism.

No 6: I don't need any vaccine, I have an immune system

No 7: Contracts Covid.

No 8: Dies.

15. What does it feel like knowing you'll be dead in minutes

and if only I got the vaccine I could have lived another 20 years. I bet he kicked his own ass with that last thought.
