Dick Farrel Dies
A right-wing radio host who declared all Covid vaccines to be “bogus bull shid” and yelled at Fauci for being a “lazy freak” has passed away after losing a battle against coronavirus.
Dick Farrel was a 65-year-old former Newsmax host and well-known radio personality. Farrel was highly critical of Dr NAthony Fauci, US medical expert and head of Covid task force.
The media personality believed the coronavirus, which has taken thousands of lives in the US, was an “academic” and had labelled Fauci as a “power-tripping lying freak” in a Facebook post.
“Fauci, the power tripping lying freak named in the Trump lawsuit,” he wrote on Facebook.
He reportedly changed his opinion about vaccines after falling ill and later being admitted to hospital before passing away on 4 August, aged 65. “He texted me and told me to ‘Get it!’ He told me this virus is no joke, and he said, “I wish I had gotten [the vaccine]!” close friend Amy Leigh Hair wrote on Facebook.
While Farrell spent his days mocking the Covid vaccines and people who believed in them, it has been reported that he ultimately had a change of heart in his last days.
Although he had urged people not to get vaccinated, even in June, after getting infected by the deadly coronavirus, Farrel called his close friends and requested them to get vaccinated against coronavirus as soon as possible.
His partner, Kit Farley, said: “He was known as the other Rush Limbaugh. With a heavy heart, I can only say this was so unexpected. He will be missed.”
Described as an ardent supporter of Donald Trump, Farrel went all-in on unsubstantiated 2020 election fraud conspiracy theories about election fraud and questioned the efficacy of coronavirus vaccines.
“Covid Took One Of My Best Friends! RIP Dick Farrel. He is the reason I took the shot! He texted me and told me to “Get it!” He told me that this virus is no joke and he said: ‘I wish I had gotten it!’,” his friend Amy Leigh Hair said in a Facebook post.
He passed away in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Hair told WPTV: “I was one of one the people like him who didn’t trust the vaccine. I trusted my immune system. I just became more afraid of getting Covid-19 than I was of any possible side effects of the vaccine. I’m glad I got vaccinated.”
