Florida Sure Has Gone Cuckoo For COVID
Florida sure has gone cuckoo for COVID. Not only has Gov. Ron DeSantis’s stupefying actions to keep the state wide open likely are contributing to record-setting numbers of COVID-19 cases breaking out each day. The state’s top Republican also moved legally to prevent citizens from being forced to get a coronavirus vaccine or reveal their vaccine status.
While all that is going on, a man who arguably is Florida’s second highest ranking member of the GOP, is taking a more direct religious route to protect Floridians from the Biden administration and the vaccine. That man is Peter Feaman, a lawyer and the top Republican National Committee official in the state. He is one three officials representing Florida in the governing body of the RNC. His remarks are among the most delusional assertions ever made by conservatives trying to downplay the seriousness of the pandemic.
CNN’s KFile found that he made the comments on his blog the “The Backhoe Chronicles,” which he publishes regularly in a private group on MeWe. The social media platform bills itself as the “anti-Facebook” app.
On July 20 wrote, “The Biden brown shirts are beginning to show up at private homes questioning vaccine papers,” incorrectly implying government officials would be showing up at peoples’ homes to question their vaccination status, comparing them to the Nazi Party paramilitary wing.
In May, Feaman called Covid-19 vaccines a “mark of the beast,” a reference to a symbol from the biblical Book of Revelations showing allegiance to Satan. He called Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer “diabolical” for encouraging vaccines. “Diabolical Michigan Governor Whitmer wants her citizens to get the Mark of the Beast to participate in society,” Feaman wrote.
“Now the Michigan Democrat has announced that she is going to prolong the state’s suffering until residents submit to getting ‘the jab’ and if enough of them comply with her demands, then she and Joe Biden might permit them to celebrate Fourth of July,” he added.
On Sunday, Florida broke its record for coronavirus hospitalizations just one day after the state recorded the most new daily COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic.
