The not-so-Grand Old Party’s officials across the southern part of our great country have been shouting as far as their electronic voices can carry “No masks. No vaccines.” Three governors Florida’s Ron DeSantis (R), Texas’ Greg Abbott (R), and Arizona’s Doug Ducey (R) have been trying to force all their states’ school systems to mandate “no masks.” Ironically, Abbott tested positive for the coronavirus, even though he was vaccinated. It was worse for the leader of the Greenville County GOP.

 

The Greenville County Republican Party leader Pressley Stutts has been an advocate of “freedom and liberty.” He insisted publicly that no one should be forced to wear a mask, get tested, or get vaccinated. Ironic, when the Republican legislators have had no problem forcing a woman to bear children per their anti-abortion movement.

He told The Greenville News while at a protest:

‘People should be free to get the vaccines they want. Free not to get it. But what’s happening now is that there’s a discrimination starting to take place.’ 

Stutts was a strong Donald Trump man. On his Facebook page he posted a message in June:

‘Great news from the SC legislature!! Our friends in the House forced a vote yesterday on masks, vaccines, and tests. The first attempt failed, but they regrouped and passed it the 2nd time. Colleges that require the Covid vaccine will now be stripped of state money thru a budget proviso that passed, in the House. And, K-12 schools and colleges will be stripped of state money if they attempt to require masks or tests for Covid. A hard fought day, but a win for Liberty yesterday!’

He shared another meme on his Facebook page that Facebook removed. It read:

 ‘Delta variant is just code for “too many of y’all aren’t scared anymore.”‘

National Security Attorney Bradley Moss tweeted:

Darwin was a smart man. Another vaccine protestor learns COVID doesn’t care. Greenville County GOP leader Pressley Stutts dies from COVID-19.’

The Greenville party leader has been suffering from coronavirus for about one month. Stutts and his wife were rushed to the hospital on August 1 after his oxygen levels plummeted. At the time, he posted this on his Facebook page:

‘The COVID has created double pneumonia in my lungs.’

Then on Wednesday, Stutts’ family wrote on his Facebook page that he was having a difficult time trying to fend off the virus, according to the Greenville News. They posted a meme asking for “Prayers for Pressley” and his photo:

‘Pressley had another rough night in the hospital. They are adjusting as needed to try to keep his levels stable. Most of the test results are the same (give or take) what they were yesterday.’

The Anderson County Republican Party representative on the South Carolina Republican Party’s Executive Committee, Dan Harvell confirmed on Thursday that Stutts had died:

‘I really don’t have words to say about the imprint that he left on the political landscape in South Carolina. He had the kind of personality that enabled him to get done what others couldn’t do’

‘He was like the brother I never had.’

The National Geographic reporter David Beard tweeted:

Before he died of #COVID19, the political leader told his followers that no one should be forced to wear a mask or get vaccinated.’
