Sooner or later, the GQP are going to notice that their true believers are disappearing:
Pressley Stutts, the GOP leader who helped reshape the Greenville County Republican Party leadership, died Thursday of complications from COVID-19.
He had been hospitalized since late July and admitted to the ICU on Aug. 3. He had been on a ventilator at Spartanburg Regional Hospital, suffering from pneumonia, renal failure and blood clots.
Stutts was a member of the Tea Party and helped found MySCGOP, a conservative organization intended as an alternative to the S.C. Republican Party… Stutts was a graduate of Gardner-Webb University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
In other words, he was the usual apparatchik who believed all the talking points; sadly the Trump-Virus is as immune to argument as a common Republican’t:
After Stutts tested positive for COVID and was hospitalized, he continued to post Facebook messages reaffirming his belief that masks and vaccines should not be mandated by the government.
Stutts said he never doubted the insidiousness of COVID and that the virus is not anything to fool around with…
“It is a deadly bio-weapon perpetrated upon the people of the world by enemies foreign, and perhaps domestic,” he said on social media.
He said it was up to individuals — and not government — to decide to wear a mask or to be vaccinated against the disease.
His corpse, his choice.
