California City Official Ousted For #COVID-19 “Herd Immunity” Comments

A northern California city official was ousted after he claimed on social media that sick, old and homeless people should be left to meet their “natural course in nature” during the coronavirus pandemic, local media reported.

According to the NBC news channel, city council members in Antioch voted unanimously Friday night via a Zoom meeting to remove Ken Turnage II from his post as chairman of the city’s planning commission, for his unacceptable comments.

He wrote on Facebook: “the World has been introduced to a new phrase Herd Immunity which is a good one. In my opinion we need to adapt a Herd Mentality. A herd gathers its ranks, it allows the sick, the old, the injured to meet its natural course in nature.”

 “If we were to live our lives, let nature run its course, yes we will all feel hardship, we will all feel loss,” he wrote, but “as a species,” the deaths would alleviate strain on the United States’ healthcare and Social Security systems and free up jobs and housing.

Turnage later deleted the post but refused to resign or back down from his comments.

He was quoted by the Los Angeles Times as saying that despite his history of “provoking dialogue and discussion” on his Facebook page, he knew these comments were “a little more edgy” as he wrote them.

He argued his personal views had no bearing on his duties as a planning commissioner and removing him would violate his freedom of speech.

But city officials said that his posting caused a loss in confidence and created a disruption to the city.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m
    still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    It’s genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use the web for
    that reason, and obtain the most recent information.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    Whereas taking a look at national averages may give a common concept,
    such numbers often do not include components which can have an effect
    on the ultimate value, reminiscent of native labor hourly charges, materials costs and any native permits required
    for the New York ac restore challenge.

    If you happen to notice that solely heat air is blowing, or the compressor does not sound prefer
    it’s kicking in right away, if it’s not getting as cold because it used to as quick as
    it used to, or if absolutely nothing occurs in any
    respect, name for AC restore in New York.
