Twitter Users Call Bullsh*t When Elon Musk Claims He Had ‘Major Side Effects’ After Getting COVID Booster

Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced on his social media site Saturday that he had “major side effects” after taking the most recent booster vaccination for Covid.

In a series of four tweets, Musk said he felt like he was “dying” after he received the booster shot and also claimed that his cousin had myocarditis after he took the booster.

“I had major side effects from my second booster shot. Felt like I was dying for several days. Hopefully, no permanent damage, but I dunno.”

“And my cousin, who is young & in peak health, had a serious case of myocarditis. Had to go to the hospital.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls myocarditis a “rare risk” that normally happens among young males:

“Data from multiple studies show a rare risk for myocarditis and/or pericarditis following receipt of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. These rare cases of myocarditis or pericarditis have occurred most frequently in adolescent and young adult males, ages 16 years and older, within 7 days after receiving the second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna).”

Musk’s claims, it should be pointed out, are undercut by the fact that he has called for Dr. Anthony Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to be put on trial.

Musk was pilloried on social media for that tweet and also got significant pushback to his latest assertions that he nearly died after taking the booster.

QAnon Members Say Kirstie Alley Was ‘Assassinated’ Because She Was An Anti-Vaxxer

On Tuesday, the children of “Cheers” actress Kirstie Alley announced that their mother had died, issuing a statement which read:

“We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered.”

It was later reported that Alley had died as a result of colon cancer, with a rep telling People magazine that the late actress had indeed been diagnosed with the fatal disease.

But according to some in the QAnon cult, Alley was actually “assassinated” because she was opposed to COVID vaccines.

David Gilbert of Vice News reports:

On the QAnon message board the Great Awakening, members concluded that the sudden nature of Alley’s death was a clear sign that her death was part of a global plot to silence critics of the COVID vaccines. 

“I wholly believe the [deep state] has a way of dosing people with poisons that create aggressive cancers,” one member wrote. Another added: “She either just drew the short straw or she was poisoned by the Deep State for being a public Patriot.”

Yep, here we go again. The same people who believe world governments are control by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who eat the brains of children in order to stay young now think that Kirstie Alley was killed because she was an anti-vaxxer.

Alley, a vocal Trump supporter, had spread multiple conspiracy theories on her social media channels in recent years about COVID-19 and vaccines. She tweeted in October last year that until the vaccines “can prevent me from getting COVID or prevent you from getting it. I won’t be getting it and will ignore mandates to get it.. seems fair to me.”

Alley had also expressed her support of the QAnon movement, tweeting out this in October of 2020:

There’s also chatter that Alley was killed by the COVID vaccine, which she allegedly had to take before she was allowed to appear on “The Masked Singer.”

Some conspiracy theorists claimed on extremist message boards, as well as social networks like Truth Social, Gab, and Telegram, that because she had recently joined the cast of The Masked Singer Alley would have been “forced” to get a vaccine against her will. Others speculated, without any evidence, that she would have had to be vaccinated in order to receive treatment for her cancer.

Not batshit crazy enough for you? Well, consider that Alley was 71 when she died. But 71 reversed is 17 and the 17th letter of the alphabet is Q.

“Smells fishy,” a prominent QAnon group wrote on Telegram. “She’d been asking a lot of questions about official narratives. Funny thing, these fast acting cancers and celebs that don’t fall in line.”

What smells really fishy is the bullshit that gets passed off as “fact” by the QAnon cultists.

Ted Nugent Gets Brutally Mocked For Calling Himself An Anti-Vax ‘Solider’

Talentless, washed-up rock guitarist Ted Nugent wants us all to know that he’s a member of the anti-vaccine army and is damn proud to serve with those who refuse to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

Of course, it’s not surprising that Nugent has refused to get vaccinated. After all, he has repeatedly proven that he’s a selfish piece of human excrement who takes great delight in demeaning and threatening those he disagrees with, even going to far as to suggest that then-President Barack Obama should “suck” on his machine gun.

Here’s what Nugent posted on Truth Social (a.k.a. Twitter for losers):

As Ron Filipkowski pointed out (and if you don’t already follow Ron on Twitter, you absolutely should ASAP), Nugent brags that he got out of military service in Vietnam in what may well be the most disgusting way imaginable. As he told High Times in 1977:

“I got my physical notice 30 days prior to. Well, on that day I ceased cleansing my body. No more brushing my teeth, no more washing my hair, no baths, no soap, no water. Thirty days of debris build. I stopped shavin’ and I was 18, had a little scraggly beard, really looked like a hippie.

“I had long hair, and it started gettin’ kinky, matted up. Then two weeks before, I stopped eating any food with nutritional value.

“I just had chips, Pepsi, beer-stuff I never touched-buttered poop, little jars of Polish sausages, and I’d drink the syrup, I was this side of death, Then a week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants, poop, piss the whole shot. My pants got crusted up.”

Years later, Nugent said he’d made up the entire story, but he did indeed get a 4-F deferment for some reason.

So this guy is a “soldier” now? That’s not just laughable, it’s an insult to everyone who has ever or current does serve in the armed forces, as Twitter quickly reminded the has-been Nugent.

MT Greene Gets Slapped Down For Posting Blatant Lie That Anti-Vaxxers Are Being Denied Medical Treatment

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on fact-free, extended Twitter rant (19 tweets!) on Saturday, spewing conspiracy theories, vitriol, and plenty of whining as she compared what she called “Before COVID” and “After COVID,” even going to far as to suggest (incorrectly) that some people who aren’t vaccinated are being denied medical treatment.

Greene asserted in her tweetstorm that the only reason the government is urging Americans to get vaccinated is to enrich pharmaceutical companies, which is more than a bit hypocritical when you consider that she owns stock in companies that are producing the vaccine:

Greene holds stock in AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, each worth between $1,000 and $15,000, according to an August 13, 2020, filing from Greene with the clerk of the House of Representatives.

Here are some of the lowlights from Greene’s social media meltdown:

Is any of what Greene alleges true? Of course not! The woman hasn’t said anything accurate or factual since she announced she was running for Congress. And she’s only accelerated her bullshit since getting elected.

Reaction to Greene’s stupidity was immediate and harsh:

 

UPDATE: Greene’s Twitter account has been permanently suspended for spreading lies and misinformation about COVID.

Alyssa Milano Laid Some Major Truth On The MAGA Faithful – And They Lost Their Angry Minds

The daily totals in the War on COVID-19 are staggering, with 214,000 cases being reported in the United States every day, an increase of 83% over the past two weeks alone. Hospitalizations are up 8% and deaths have increased 3% over that same two-week period.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the fully vaccinated who contract COVID are experiencing only mild flu-like symptoms which quickly abate, especially if the person has contracted the Omicron variant, which is more transmissible than Delta but far less lethal.

Clearly, as every study across the world has shown, the key to battling COVID is to get vaccinated and boosted, a three-shot regimen that is virtually painless and has almost no side effects.

And yet, a closer look at the data shows that those who voted for Donald Trump are less likely to get vaccinated and more likely to die from the virus, according to NPR:

NPR looked at deaths per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the U.S. from May 2021, the point at which vaccinations widely became available. People living in counties that went 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.73 times the death rates of those that went for Biden. Counties with an even higher share of the vote for Trump saw higher COVID-19 mortality rates.

In October, the reddest tenth of the country saw death rates that were six times higher than the bluest tenth, according to Charles Gaba, an independent health care analyst who’s been tracking partisanship trends during the pandemic and helped to review NPR’s methodology. Those numbers have dropped slightly in recent weeks, Gaba says: “It’s back down to around 5.5 times higher.”

All of this led actress and progressive activist Alyssa Milano to post a tweet which spelled out the need for everyone to get vaccinated:

Fully vaccinated means no hospitalization, no ventilator, and no long-term health impact from COVID. It’s really that simple.

But to the MAGA faithful, Milano might just as well have been telling them they should stop breathing altogether as a precaution. So they vented their enraged, stunted minds on Twitter as if doing so would place a magic veil of immunity around them and their loved ones:
