Another anti-vaxx MAGA podcaster who attended the Dallas Q-Anon conference is facing the eternal consequences of putting identity politics over his own life:

A QAnon and anti-vaccine podcaster has died from complications due to COVID-19 after contracting the virus at a conspiracy theory conference that turned into a superspreader event, and where fellow attendees baselessly blamed their illness on an anthrax attack.

Doug Kuzma, 61, from Newport News, Virginia, died on January 3 after being hospitalized 10 days earlier. Kuzma broadcasted on the FROG News podcasting network, which stands for “Fully Rely On God.” Kuzma and his FROG fellow hosts pushed an array of conspiracy theories ranging from QAnon to COVID denial and election fraud lies.

Insane as this all is, at least since he is deeply committed to the principle that one should fully rely on God, at least he won’t take up scarce medical resources when he gets extremely sick and…

Kuzma reported that he was feeling ill, but claimed it was just his chronic bronchitis flaring up again. On December 15 he posted on Facebook that he had a fever and said it was time to call the doctor. 

Someone commented that he should get a COVID test anyway, but Kuzma responded: “No way.” When the commenter said it was better to be “safe than sorry,” Kuzma once again lashed out, writing: “You must have lost your mind, so they can kill me, and try and give me the jab. I’ll die at the house before I go to the hospital.”

However, after suffering from a fever for five days straight, Kuzma was forced to admit that he had likely contracted COVID.

He was reportedly found unconscious at his house on Christmas Eve and rushed to the hospital. Pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood posted on Telegram that Kuzma was brought to the Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital ICU in Newport News and was not responding to treatment. Kuzma was sedated and placed on a ventilator, according to a post by his podcast network.

According to a fellow member of FROG News, the final message Kuzma sent was a photo of himself with ​​a “refill of ivermectin.” [Congratulations to Matt Taibbi! –ed] The drug has not been approved for use in treating COVID-19. Ivermectin, which is best known as a horse dewormer, is prescribed to humans as an antiparasitic drug, but a study that claimed it was an effective treatment for COVID-19 was withdrawn due to plagiarism and “serious problems with their raw data.”

Frog News is a heavy promoter of the multilevel marketing (MLM) healthcare company Lifewave, which sells unproven wearable patches that promise to “activate our stem cells and reset them to a younger, healthier state.”

So, not really fully reliant then.

I’m really disillusioned. What’s next, Ron Johnson claiming that it was wrong to try to improve on God’s own immune system and then promote every crackpot ineffectual pharmaceutical intervention to come down I-94?
