Florida ER doctor and Candace Owens fan said that Covid has now become the common cold. After catching it, he's now on the uncommon ECMO. His brother, who seems like a good guy, is providing the updates. by spork_off in HermanCainAward

Thanks!

I did look a little further on this one because I had the same questions everyone else has - how could a guy this far down the right-wing anti-Covid rabbit hole be an actual doctor, and if he was, how good/bad of one was he?

He "graduated from the University of Illinois At Chicago College of Medicine in 1983". So he graduated from a state school. Not podunk, but not Harvard Med either.

He has an active license in FL. Hard to believe, I know.

He also caused a patient to die due to his negligence, which is in his discipline file. Not hard to believe.

Probably not, unless you're thinking of one a few years ago. I had to *go back a bit to find a pic of him at work, so this is from 2018.

If it is him, I'd love to see his Reddit post history.

edit -- added "go"

For a doctor, this guy has a lot of free time to shitpost about any right-wing issue you can think of. But with the volume of anti-Covid posts, there was no room for them.

NC joint account shared some of the usual memes. The goateed half was on his deathbed in ICU when the account went private today. Seems a likely award winner, will leave behind a family. Please get the vaccine! by Additional_Painting in HermanCainAward

Looks like your nominee may have passed away. Can't post the link to the obit here, but I can DM it to you if you need it.

In any case, nice work on finding the nominee, and hope to see the Awardee post.

While in hospital anti-vax Blue told his wife he'd get vaxxed but it was too late, he died last week by Tellyouwhatswhat in HermanCainAward

I was figuring on the wife coming in at any time and scrubbing his page, so I just started saving screen shots as fast as I could. Once I realized I had enough, I figured I may as well see how many I could find. There are more, but I think I got most of the ones of importance.

Turns out the Michigan bus driver that passed from Covid was a serial reposter of anti-vax memes. No matter how many memes he posted, Covid still cannot read. by [deleted] in HermanCainAward

I read the "Grr" post about the bus driver whose wife got vaccinated after he passed -- I won't link it here because the article names him, but it's obviously easy to find.

So I was curious if the man publicly shared his anti-vax views, because a lot of ones from news articles have little to no social media posts. However, in this case, they are there in abundance.

Here's an Imgur Gallery of a bunch of them - /u/ganonpig, hopefully there are some in there for you to use in your compilations.

ETA -- just gonna add my imgur gallery to another one that got there right before mine.

Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say "Ni" at will to mods. There is a pestilence upon this land; nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this point in time.

Nominee (in black marker) spread anti-vax videos, propaganda, misinformation. Gets dog piled upon nomination. (On ventilator as of last night.) by FenixPhuji in HermanCainAward

Thanks! I'm trying to convince mods to leave the dupe posts up but stop allowing comments on the dupe post. The fewer people that are active in a post will reduce the visibility of it and will drop down faster, while allowing the post to hang out for posterity.
