A conservative columnist cited current headlines involving Howard Stern to argue that the radio host was working in tandem with President Joe Biden and different Democrats to trick Republicans into dying of COVID-19.
In a Sept. 10 article printed on Breitbart, John Nolte name-checked Stern and Biden ― in addition to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Dr. Anthony Fauci ― as amongst those that are “deliberately looking to manipulate Trump supporters into not getting vaccinated.”
“If I wanted to use reverse psychology to convince people not to get a life-saving vaccination, I would do exactly what Stern and the left are doing,” Nolte wrote. “I would bully and taunt and mock and ridicule you for not getting vaccinated, knowing the human response would be, ‘Hey, fuck you, I’m never getting vaccinated!’ And why is that a perfectly human response? Because no one ever wants to feel like they are being bullied or ridiculed or mocked or pushed into doing anything.”
Interestingly, Nolte’s article started making waves Monday on Twitter after being excerpted by the news website Mediaite. The piece was initially printed days after Stern criticized those that are refusing to get vaccinated towards the coronavirus.
“When are we going to stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say it’s mandatory to get vaccinated? Fuck ’em. Fuck their freedom. I want my freedom to live,” Stern stated on the Sept. 7 episode of his SiriusXM present on Tuesday, in keeping with clips posted on-line. “I want to get out of the house already. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures.”
“Go fuck yourself,” he added. “You had the cure and you wouldn’t take it.”
Those sentiments had been later echoed by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who was additionally referenced in Nolte’s piece.
“That choice doesn’t seem so tough to me,” Kimmel stated on the Sept. 7 episode of his present. “Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right in, we’ll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy.”
Interestingly, Nolte ― who has indicated on social media that he’s vaccinated ― makes a robust argument for getting the vaccine by implying it truly goes towards Democrats’ needs.
“Forget cases, forget mandates, forget masks, and Howard Stern,” he wrote. “When you learn that almost everyone dying is unvaccinated, that’s a come to Jesus moment.”
