NO Sympathy from me!
Wonder how many he has killed.

I can also see that his religion killed him.


GREENVILLE, S.C. (WOLO, AP) – A tea party Republican who recently helped turn over the party leadership in South Carolina’s largest county has died from complications of COVID-19.


Party leaders and his family say 64-year-old Pressley Stutts died Thursday.


Over the summer, Stutts led a group loyal to former President Donald Trump to force the resignation of several Greenville County Republican Party leaders. Stutts said he was following Trump’s wishes to kick anyone who didn’t fully support the former president out of the Republican party.


Stutts had been hospitalized with COVID-19 since late July, frequently updating his health on Facebook.


Stutts wrote COVID-19 was serious, but he couldn’t support mask or vaccine mandates because they encroach on American freedoms.


His final post came five days before his death, when he wrote he chose to go on a ventilator and planned to “wake up from this short rest and be back in the game soon!”


“This is my OWN decision. I trust God to keep me. I ask you to trust Him, too,” Stutts wrote.

Greeneville, SC, I lived there in the 1990's. This was before the rest of the rural parts of the country turned crazy like they were. And, woo boy, were those Greenvillians crazy. Wild thing is, G'Ville was one of the more progressive areas in the state.

Yes, me too. When we as a nation starting enjoying the deaths of people we disagree with that crosses the line.

I suspect more than a few of his family members rejoiced on hearing the news this week.
