From my “another one bites the dust” file comes a triple irony. Homophobic jerkoff and anti-vaxxer Bob Enyart, a guy so vile he used to play Freddie Mercury’s “Another one bites the dust” every time an AIDS victim died, has himself bitten the dust. He died of Covid-19.
The triple irony is that Freddy Mercury, a man who died of AIDS himself, wrote the song, Enyart used it to mock AIDS victims and now Enyart is snugly tucked away in my “Another one bites the dust” file. Forgive me, brothers and sisters, while I enjoy a minute of silence as I savor the pure deliciousness of this reality. Thank you.
Enyart once referred to himself with a straight (if you’ll pardon the expression) face as “America’s most popular self-proclaimed right-wing, religious fanatic, homophobic, anti-choice talk show host.” according to the Los Angeles Blade. Enyart was a pastor of the Denver Bible Church. Apparently he spread his anti-science stupidity to his gullible flock of cretins every Sunday.
Announcing the death of his close friend on Monday, Enyart’s co-host Fred Wiliams, a guy who clearly doesn’t get out much, called Enyart “one of the smartest, and without question the wisest person I’ve known. All the while being exceedingly kind and humble, and always, always willing to listen and discuss anything you wanted.” Except for the thingy about him celebrating every time an AIDS victim died, of course. But I guess that goes without saying.
Enyart crowed on his website that he and his stupid wife would not get the coronavirus vaccine “due to abortion concerns.” Enyart, the one-time director of Colorado Right to Life, urged a boycott of vaccines “to further increase social tension and put pressure on the child killers.”
How’s that workin’ out for ya, Bob? Meanwhile coronavirus continues to kill actual, breathing children, not blobs of undifferentiated protoplasm.
Enyart, 62, joins the growing list of radio-active morons who died of coronavirus. These include WNDB’s Marc Bernier, 65, 99.7 WTN host Phil Valentine, 62, and conservative radio host Dick Farrel, 65. And, as ever, ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, comrades and friends, stay safe.
