Keith Olbermann, former sports anchor turned Left-wing political hack, took to Twitter over the weekend to complain about Americans who prefer not to receive the COVID vaccination.

Olbermann shared a video of him receiving his booster vaccine and his COVID vaccine card.

“It is time to stop coddling them,” Olbermann said. “The ones who won’t get the damn shot already. And our first step, you and I, is symbols. The language we use. We call these people ‘vaccine-hesitant,’ ‘vaccine skeptics,’ ‘anti-vax.’ We say they’re protesting mandates and passports. They’re making a personal choice. They’re waiting for more information. They’re making a medical decision.

“Bullshit. They’re afraid. They’re afraid to get vaccinated. Stop feeding their egos about what they’re doing. Stop legitimizing it. Vaccine-hesitant? They’re afraid. Vaccine skeptics? They’re afraid. Anti-vax? They’re afraid. They’re protesting mandates and passports — they’re afraid.”

Olbermann kept going on about those individuals and kept calling the people who aren’t scared enough to have an experimental drug without any long-term studies done to know the side effects injected into their bodies as the ones who are afraid — seemingly not realizing he’s afraid enough to take the shot.

“The snowflakes are afraid,” he said. “Afraid of the vaccine. Afraid of being proved wrong. Afraid of doing what anybody else in the world tells them to do. Afraid of needles.”

Snowflakes, cowards, idiots, losers — all names that Olbermann called the unvaccinated.

It is sad to see someone so off their rocker. But Olbermann has clearly lost whatever common sense he retained through the Trump years.
