Conservative Nashville radio host critically ill with COVID-19 after declining vaccine

Conservative Nashville radio personality Phil Valentine, who publicly declared his intention not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, is now hospitalized with the illness in “very serious condition,” and his family members are urging others to get their shots and protect themselves, as CBS News reports.

Valentine, host of his own program on WWTN-FM first went public with his diagnosis back on July 11, but seemed confident in the trajectory of his recovery, saying at the time, “I have COVID. Unfortunately for the haters out there, it looks like I’m going to make it.”

The popular radio voice said following his diagnosis that he had previously declined vaccination because he simply did not believe himself to be part of the population at greatest risk of a serious or even fatal outcome from the virus, as CBS News noted. He even posted on his Facebook page in late June, “Common sense told us that if you weren’t at risk for COVID you shouldn’t get the vaccine.”

However, roughly two weeks after that broadcast, Valentine’s brother, Mark, came forward with the news that the radio personality had in fact been hospitalized and was “in very serious condition” with pneumonia and a host of other complications.

According to a statement from Valentine’s family, which appeared on his radio station’s Facebook page, the host wanted “his listeners to know that while he has never been an ‘anti-vaxer’ he regrets not being more vehemently ‘Pro-Vaccine,’ and looks forward to being able to more vigorously advocate that position as soon as he is back on the air…”.

Mark Valentine told the Tennesseean that up until his bout with COVID-19, his brother was “healthy as a horse” and a “very health-conscious guy,” and while not on a ventilator at this point, “he is scared. He knows he is very, very sick.”

An update published the paper on Sunday revealed that Valentine, 62, was still in critical condition and has been subjected to treatments that have included injections of remdesivir, supplemental oxygen, and an intervention known as “proning,” or being flipped onto the stomach for extended periods in order to prevent fluid collection on the lungs.

The outlet further reported that Phil Valentine’s wife, Susan, has stood by her husband’s side throughout his ordeal, often pulling 14-hour stretches at a time. “She is watching her husband fight for his life,” Mark Valentine observed, adding, “We have not breathed a sign of relief. He has not turned a corner.”

One thing the past 16 months have demonstrated is the brutal unpredictability of this virus – causing some little more than temporary discomfort and bringing an untimely demise to others. Hopefully Mr. Valentine’s struggles with COVID-19 will begin to turn around in the near future, and he can return to the airwaves in due time to share his story.

Despite what the fake news media is telling you, most Americans have not gotten injected for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19). And those who have, it appears, are the ones getting sick with and driving the spread of the “delta variant.” There is zero proof to suggest that non-injected people are the ones now functioning as “viral factories” as the government claims. To the contrary, the injected have been marked with toxic chemicals that are mutating into new forms of illness that are sending people to the hospital with “covid.” Just like how taking antibiotics breeds antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” taking these so-called vaccines contributes to the breeding of new variants that send some people to the hospital – or worse. Vaccinated people are walking disease factories, in other words. Their damaged immune systems are now prone to spreading more illness, typically to other vaccinated people whose disease defenses have also been degraded. While the mainstream media wants you to believe the opposite, the fact remains that injected people are the worst off when it comes to the risks involved with variant spread. Even partially vaccinated people “might serve as sort of a breeding ground for the virus to acquire new mutations,” warns Paul Bieniasz, a Howard Hughes investigator at The Rockefeller Univ.

Everybody has to make a choice based on the information available. When the information available is inconsistent in availability and facts. You trust your instincts.

Why would you not give him ivermectin?

Use of ivermectin or HCQ with zinc is a valid treatment. Remdesavir is pointless.

I’m sorry to hear of anyone contracting Covid and sincerely wish Valentine well.
My son has recovered from Covid and while he was (4 days) in the hospital
he was in isolation, with a treatment of a steroid, dispensed with a nasal inhaler.
Once home, I followed a local MD’s suggestion, and went over to the local
“Farm Store” and bought… 2 tubes of Ivermectin paste for a horse, and
….while there, I bought 3 tubes for my son. YES, it does work.
I am happy to report, my son is fine.

People, common sense. Get the vaccine if you want, but why not. Unless you have a really good reason not to, like allergies or other immune problems, or you have already had the virus, why not get the vaccine. We need to stop the spread.

Prayers for him and for those dyeing from the vaccine as well. The so called vaccine is not FDA approved for good reason. Eugenics is real since the garden of Eden and Adam and Eve. The death trap vaccine is designed to depopulate you Earth at an accelerated rate. It is working.

My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $71600… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet.
