Wow…. The Activated Podcast has a thread on twitter with some of the other, uh, participants, at the meeting.
Cardinal Raymond Burke, a leader in the Catholic church, has been placed on a ventilator after contracting covid-19, according to the cardinal’s Twitter account. Burke has repeatedly made bizarre comments about the pandemic since it began last year, including claims that governments might try to place microchips in humans during the health crisis.
“Cardinal Burke has been admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 and is being assisted by a ventilator. Doctors are encouraged by his progress,” the cardinal’s Twitter account announced.
“H.E. faithfully prayed the Rosary for those suffering from the virus. On this Vigil of the Assumption, let us now pray the Rosary for him,” the account continued.
Burke, an American who lives primarly in Rome, has reportedly been spending time in his home state of Wisconsin, according to CNN, where he’s presumably being treated for covid-19. Wisconsin has seen a recent surge in covid-19 cases, with 2,448 cases reported on Monday alone.
The last sentence in this article says: “He did not immediately say whether he had been vaccinated against COVID-19.” which I’m gonna take a huge bet and take that as a big ‘no’.
MADISON – One of the Legislature’s most active lawmakers who has opposed mask and vaccine mandates was hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19.
Sen. Andre Jacque, a Republican from De Pere, said Monday evening he and some family members tested positive late last week and that he was at the hospital with pneumonia. He did not say whether he had been admitted.
“I do not know when I contracted Covid, but some of my family and I did test positive for it at the end of last week after I came home from Madison,” Jacque, 40, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in a text message.
Jacque’s diagnosis comes as Wisconsin is experiencing a new surge of COVID-19 cases driven by a new variant of the virus that is more transmissible. It’s the first uptick of cases since vaccines became widely available in the state earlier this year.
I'm not sure how you can still be vocally anti-mask and anti-vax as a legislator and not be a little concerned that you're next at this point. https://t.co/3SMf9icEaL

Sen. André Jacque, who testified maskless during a Joint Senate and Assembly Education Committee meeting last Wednesday at the statehouse in Madison, neglected to inform his colleagues about their potential exposure—and they’re not happy. https://t.co/aYiQDmNp5f

Pressley Stutts, a Greenville County Republican Party leader, announced Friday that he was going on a ventilator after his oxygen levels dropped precipitously, and he asked for prayers as he battled for his life against the potentially deadly virus, reported FITSNews.
“Listen to me please: I am making a decision to go on a ventilator,” Stutts posted on his Facebook account. “This is my OWN decision. I trust God to keep me. I ask you to trust Him, too. He IS ABLE, right?”
Neither Stutts nor his wife, who also became infected and was briefly hospitalized, were vaccinated against the coronavirus — and the recently elected South Carolina Republican Party executive committeeman quoted Thomas Jefferson in mid-May to justify his decision.
“I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery,” Stutts posted on his Facebook page.
