Ohio Trump Supporter Who Refused To Wear Mask Dies Of COVID-19 July 14, 2020

Death Cult: An Ohio Trump supporter who refused to wear a mask and claimed the coronavirus pandemic was just “hype” is dead from the virus.

New York Post reports:

An Ohio Army vet who refused to wear a face mask because he didn’t want to buy into “that damn hype” died of coronavirus complications on the Fourth of July.

Richard Rose, 37, of Port Clinton, who served for nine years, including two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, died at his home, according to an online obituary.

Rose, a US Army veteran who served for nine years and did two tours of Iraq and Afghanistan, died from the virus at his home in Port Clinton, Ohio, on July 4.

Commenting on the story, The Insider reports:

Rose’s death has attracted attention online due to his public Facebook posts, in which he voiced support for President Donald Trump, criticized Black Lives Matter protesters, made jokes about rape, and accused Democrats of spreading false information in order to “rig the elections in their favor.”

Late last April Rose posted on his Facebook page that he would not wear a mask because he was not “buying into that damn hype”:

Let’s make this clear. I’m not buying a f*****g mask. I’ve made it this far by not buying into that damn hype.

On May 12 Rose wrote that he was “sick” of seeing “s— about COVID”:

And on May 18 Rose posted an Islamaphobic meme that compared a niqab to a medical mask:

During the month of June Rose “checked in” on Facebook at bars and restaurants in Ohio. 

On July 1 Rose wrote that he had been “very sick the past few days”:

Later that day Rose wrote:

Well. I’m officially under quarantine for the next 14 days. I just tested positive for COVID-19. Sucks because I had just started a new job!

The next day Rose wrote:

This covid s–t sucks! I’m so out of breath just sitting here.

The last post from Rose came a day before his death. It was a meme with the words:

When you see me in heaven don’t s–t yourself you judgmental pricks.

Bottom line: An Ohio Trump supporter who refused to wear a mask and claimed the coronavirus pandemic was just “hype” is dead from the virus.
