Jimmy Kimmel has returned from his summer hiatus, and is back to work at pushing left-wing talking points and spewing death wishes at people who disagree with him.
The so-called “comedian” has decided to give his thoughts about people who choose not to get the experimental COVID vaccine.
During his opening monologue, Jimmy Kimmel blatantly wished death upon the unvaccinated.
“Dr. Fauci said if hospitals get any more crowded, they’re going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed,” Kimmel said.
“That choice doesn’t seem so tough to me. Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right on in. We’ll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy,” he added, referring to the drug Ivermectin.
Ivermectin is a Nobel Prize winning drug used to treat a variety of illnesses in humans, including parasites. But the left wants to demonize their opponents, so of course people like Kimmel are lying to their viewers — or at least, not telling the full truth — by saying that it is a drug made for horses.
It’s funny that Democrats like Jimmy Kimmel have been claiming that healthcare is a human right for a long time, yet they are now advocating for refusing healthcare services to unvaccinated people, claiming that they deserve to be denied because of their choices. Of course, if you apply that standard equally to fat people who chose to overeat, people with HIV/AIDS who chose to have unprotected sex with strangers, or people with lung cancer that smoked, the left would lose their minds.
“Poison control centers across the country have seen a spike in calls from people taking livestock medicine to fight the coronavirus, but they won’t take the vaccine, which is crazy,” he said. “It’s like if you’re a vegan and you’re like, ‘No, I don’t want a hamburger — give me that can of Alpo instead.'”
That last statement would almost be funny, if it weren’t such a lie. Ivermectin has been FDA approved, not for COVID, but for many other uses for a long time. Getting prescribed the drug by a doctor is not inherently dangerous, as there have been long-term studies about its side effects. On the other hand, the experimental COVID vaccine has not existed long enough to have any long-term studies done.
Watch the full monologue here:
Conservatives had some pretty fiery responses to Jimmy Kimmel’s statements.
Ted Cruz fired back on Twitter, writing:
“Sick. Angry Leftist to anyone who disagrees with him on vaccines:
‘Rest in peace, wheezy.’
THAT’S AN ACTUAL QUOTE.
I’ve been vaccinated, but I don’t wish death on those who make different choices.”
Sick. Angry Leftist to anyone who disagrees with him on vaccines:
“Rest in peace, wheezy.”
THAT’S AN ACTUAL QUOTE.

Writer and publisher Michael Quinn Sullivan made a similar point, writing: “Hey, Jimmy – what about smokers, drinkers, and the obese? What about sex-addicts? Can we cut all them off, too, from ICU beds?”

Jim Hanson, author and president of Security Studies Group, had a witty response to Kimmel’s statement.
“And Leftists shouldn’t get the protections of a Constitution they want to destroy,” he wrote.

Even left-wing commentators were angry about Kimmel’s statements.
“Lifesaving medical care isn’t a reward for making good choices! Insisting that tens of millions of people don’t deserve it undermines the very concept of healthcare as a human right, and I can’t tell you how depressing it is to see so many liberals doing this,” wrote Natalie Shure, a columnist for several publications, including BuzzFeed News and the socialist magazine Jacobin.
