Outspoken conservative radio host Phil Valentine dies after battling COVID-19

NASHVILLE, Tenn (WTVF) — Conservative talk radio host Phil Valentine has died following a lengthy battle with COVID-19. He was 61 years old.

His death was announced by SuperTalk 99.7 WTN on Saturday afternoon after he had been battling the virus for more than a month.

On July 11, Valentine confirmed via his Facebook page that he had been diagnosed with COVID.

He was a prominent voice on Nashville radio for decades.

Valentine moved to talk radio full time in 1995, but in 2000, he received national attention by helping to organize horn honking protests against a proposed state income tax in Tennessee.

He broadcast his conservative talk radio show from outside the state Capitol, and urged people to drive by and make noise.

"We are going to have a one minute solid horn honking and we want you to participate in that," Valentine said from his broadcast booth.

Many credit the passionate protests with helping to defeat the state income tax which was proposed by a Republican Governor.

He later wrote a book about the protests called Tax Revolt.

It was one of several books he wrote during his career.

Valentine often discussed how his father was a Democrat and spent 12 years as a US Congressman.

But Valentine said he left the Democratic Party after Ronald Reagan became President.

His strong opinions helped get his radio show syndicated. It aired on stations across the country.

But his greatest influence was in Tennessee.

When Valentine felt Republican Speaker of House Glen Casada lied on his show by claiming a NewsChannel 5 investigation was inaccurate, he turned on Casada.

"It's always the cover-up that's worse," Valentine said.

"I'm expecting honest answers. I'm not expecting somebody to use me to spin his story and spin his web," Valentine said of Casada.

Not long after that Casada resigned as Speaker after losing support from a majority of Republican representatives.

Recently Valentine voiced skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine.

In December of 2020 he tweeted "I have a very low risk of A) Getting COVID and B) dying of it if I do. Why would I risk getting a heart attack or paralysis by getting the vaccine?"

He even recorded a parody song - Vaxman - mocking the vaccine.

In July, he told his audience he had COVID and he expected to be back soon.

But later updates from family and friends indicated how serious it was.

Valentine's brother said Phil regretted not being more pro-vaccine and wrote if he got back on the radio he would encourage people to get vaccinated.

According to family, Valentine fought hard, but was unable to beat the virus.

Phil Valentine July 13 Well, the first day back went according to plan. Got feeling better and better during the course of the show. I think it helps to get back into a routine. Thanks for all the prayers and well-wishes. The good news is there are some very effective alternatives to the vaccine. You need to have a plan in case you get COVID. Make SURE you get your vitamin D3 level checked. My experts tell me your level should be between 50 and 90. And then have a doctor on speed dial who will write you a prescription for ivermectin. Then you're ready to go. If you're high risk of dying from COVID I still strongly suggest you consider the vaccine, but this it totally your choice. Just make sure you're prepared if you decide against the vaccine.

Ok, so...is it okay to start acknowledging the elephant in the room and admit that gays who contracted HIV by being promiscuous and going raw did it to themselves by being irresponsible with their health? So dying of AIDS is their own fault for their negligence?

Because, technically, both are true. I just want to make sure I'm getting it right that it's now socially acceptable to condemn sick people for...getting sick based upon their life choices. Because, honestly, we could do this all day:

Smokers - COPD, lung cancer, emphysema, esophageal cancer

Heart disease - being obese, not exercising, eating foods high in micronutrients, trans fats and sugar

Cirrhosis - alcoholism

Methadone - narcotics/opioid addiction

Overdosing on meth laced with fentanyl and dying in a pool of your own piss and vomit. Etc.

Almost all of these afflictions are preventable by being responsible with one's health. If the logic is self-care negligence with regards to health, then it should be applied to everything.

A lot of the infected didn't care and spread it to others because they were selfish, and those who allowed them to do it by not using protection were idiots. Even on Prep they still tell you to use protection and people are out here thinking it's cool to go raw because they're on it. Hello. There are other STDs.

My point is that there is nuance. We're shifting culturally into a mindset that's very absolutist and akin to religious fanaticism. And I greatly dislike it.

My enthusiasm to help the unwilling-to-save-themselves has been exhausted. After 628,000 deaths, I'm over it and have moved into the "dark humored" phase. I'll laugh at these horrible fuckwits, mock them without mercy and I'd just as soon they died sooner rather than later.

[quote]reject a LIFE SAVING vaccination treatment

It's not live saving if you can still catch it, spread it, and die from it. I've got two family friends who were fully vaccinated and still died from it. They were also extremely unhealthy to begin with, though. There are plenty of more cases like this. Vaccination protects people who, honestly, would be protected regardless (i.e. are relatively healthy with no preexisting conditions).

Also, people tell others to reject many things that could help them. At the end of the day, though, people are responsible for themselves and their own life choices. And the media started this vaccination doubt in the first damn place. They planted seeds of doubt because...Trump. And now they have the nerve to brow beat the vaccine hesitancy they helped create because a different person is POTUS? Do you want to hold the media and other medical experts responsible to this shit?

No vaccine guarantees 100% protection. Think of it like going into battle with a bulletproof vest. You can still die from getting shot but that doesn't mean that no one should wear a bulletproof vest.

by Anonymousreply 147August 24, 2021 8:49 PM

r147 And not everyone will die from being shot. That's a poor example though, because one of the perks of surviving the infection is natural immunity that's equally as protective as a vaccine. Whereas, if you get shot and survive, you don't suddenly grow a bulletproof vest and become immune to bullets.

And I'm not anti-vaxx, you brainwashed weirdos. I'm anti being forced to take something that was rushed and has proven waning efficacy in mere months after inoculation when everyone else (namely the government) tells you to take it. It should be optional for everyone who wants it when they feel comfortable taking it as is the case with the flu shot or medication in general. Period.

Sidebar: I'm so gung ho about this issue because it's blowing my mind how people like me who never said we wouldn't take it but just wanted to wait until it's been out for a while and see how it performs in the wild are all of a sudden "anti-vaxx." Couple that with how severely politicized this entire pandemic has been and I'm sorry but, I can't be the only one who thinks it's strange to be throwing the "anti-vaxx" label around so liberally. Considering the unusual and extenuating circumstances under which it was developed, a healthy amount of skepticism should be understandable. Especially when you have more physicians and other healthcare professionals who are also hesitant but believe in vaccination as an effective therapeutic.

It is specifically just [italic]this[/italic] vaccine that I'm not comfortable taking yet. And yet I'm "anti-vaxx?" Are y'all serious?

r155 It sounds like you don't know how triage works. It also sounds like you think everyone who hasn't taken this yet is generally unhealthy overall. Most of the patients in the hospitals with COVID have comorbidities like heart disease, are obese, have weakened immune systems, or are of advanced age.

So, if you want to be pissed at sick people for being sick, be pissed at them for not maintaining a healthy weight and diet, smoking, abusing substances, oh...and having a lot of unsafe sex and contracting HIV, as well. Because if they lived a healthy lifestyle in the first place, they'd be less likely to require hospitalization. Your mom would've waited in the lobby in flu season behind the same demographic of unhealthy people taking up bed space. This is not as uncommon as the media is trying to convince you that it is.

I'm so sorry, r155. Seven years ago I took my Alzheimer's mother to the ER when she broke her wrist when she tripped walking in the backyard. (Why wasn't I watching her?asked the PA at intake) It was seven hours of wait as she kept trying to escape the ER waiting room to go back before we were taken into a private room and two more before emergency surgery. FFS, now I'd probably have to take a demented 88 y.o. with a broken bone back home to wait.

These people are infuriating and it's not just because they won't get a vaccine. Most are also against masks and try to block others from wearing them. Many are using platforms to spread nasty messages. They won't stop infecting others by going everywhere they can. They don't care that children under 12 have no protection.

They are typically the types to rail against reproductive rights, but suddenly they don't give a shit about children dying, citing "my body, my choice". They rail against affordable healthcare but rush to set up gofundmes to pay their bills. They go on and on about being religious, but fight death tooth and nail, clogging up the healthcare system.

This is nothing like other health issues, where people make bad choices. These people are loud and proud of being hypocritical scumbags.
