May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'State senator who opposed mask mandates on ventilator with COVID-19 By Joshua Rhett Miller August 26, 2021 I 10:28am I Updated RE THIS TCLE: f Senator André Jacque tested positive for COVID-19 on August 13th, and has now been hospitalized for over a week 0:12/0:43'
Jacque has been hospitalized since August 16th.

A Franklin (WI) resident posted this on her FB page.

It’s true.

It’s happening, and it’s beyond despicable.

A writer who goes by the name Cockburn posted a piece on Spectator World about COVID-19 death porn.

Here’s a portion:

Cockburn will concede that when a public figure stakes their life on a certain medical opinion and dies a preventable death as a result, the irony is enough to merit a news story. But he would be remiss if he didn’t observe that standards for this sort of thing seem a tad inconsistent. Losing weight is another entirely controllable way to reduce COVID risk, too, but the same publications that gloat over dead vaccine skeptics have published a Pravda’s worth of takes explaining that COVID-related fat shaming is not funny and not OK.

Plus, more than one article has lurched from an appreciation of public irony into thinly-disguised glee at the death of the unbelievers.
