“Krazy Kari” Lake attended a cmpaign event sponsored by a right-wing organization calling itself America Pack (because they don’t know the acronym for political action committee is “PAC”). The supposed founder of America Pack, Valerie Grosso Turley, explains:

I founded America Pack based on a simple mission and an even grander vision. I believe we must do everything in our power to fight for a country we once knew was pure, a country we once knew was free, a country we once knew was OURS!

This is barely coded language for white Christian Nationalism.

At this campaign event, “Krazy Kari” Lake called on Arizona’s sheriffs, name checking MAGA Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb, to arrest Dr. Anthony Fauci for keeping the horse dewormer drug Ivermectin from the American people as a “wonder drug” for treating Covid-19. I kid you not.

The Food and Drug Administration and Center For Disease Control issued a warning about invermectin some time ago. Ivermectin Products are Not Approved by FDA to Prevent or Treat COVID-19:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not authorized or approved using ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19 in humans and has cautioned about the potential risks of using ivermectin for COVID-19. This medication is FDA-approved to treat certain infections caused by internal and external parasites, but is not authorized or approved by the FDA to prevent or treat COVID-19.

During the COVID-19 pandemic and recent surges of COVID-19 cases, rates of ivermectin prescriptions dispensed from retail pharmacies have increased, as has use of ivermectin-containing veterinary products available over the counter but not intended for human use. U.S. poison control centers have experienced a rise in calls reporting ivermectin misuses and overdoses and reports of more people experiencing adverse effects.

Adverse effects of ivermectin overdose include:

      • Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
      • Low blood pressure (hypotension)
      • Neurologic effects such as decreased consciousness, confusion, hallucinations, central nervous system depression, seizures, coma, and death

Ivermectin may also increase sedative effects of other medications such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel has determined that there are currently insufficient data to recommend using ivermectin to treat COVID-19. Clinicians and public health practitioners should educate patients about the risks of using ivermectin without an indication or prescription, as well as about the risks of ingesting ivermectin products that are meant solely for external use or veterinary use. COVID-19 vaccination is safe and the most effective means to prevent infection and protect against severe disease and death from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Clinicians are strongly encouraged to educate patients to use proven COVID-19 prevention measures, especially getting vaccinated and boosted as soon as eligible, and use FDA-authorized treatment.

To learn more, please visit CDC’s Health Advisory on Reports of Severe Illness Associated with Use of Products Containing Ivermectin to Prevent or Treat COVID-19, and the FDA’s Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19.

I’m guessing “Krazy Kari” lake is suffering from some of those neurological effects the FDA warned about.

As crazy as she is, the Chair of the Republican Party in Oklahoma is calling for Dr. Fauci to be executed by firing squad. (Oklahoma offers firing squad as an option to death row inmates).

Lee Moran reports, Republicans Cheer As Congressional Candidate Demands Fauci’s Execution By Firing Squad:

Oklahoma GOP Chair John Bennett, who is running for Congress, said he wants to put Dr. Anthony Fauci in front of a firing squad ― and the crowd at a campaign event clapped and cheered.

“We’re fighting communist Democrats, establishment RINOs!” Bennett ranted in a video that Right Wing Watch shared online Tuesday, which has now gone viral.

“We’re fighting against a system that stole the election in 2020 and nobody had been held accountable,” Bennett continued, parroting former President Donald Trump’s baseless election fraud claims. “We’re in a war with bureaucrats that have forced vaccine mandates on us, mask mandates on us.”

Bennett then railed against something he described as “wokeness confusion,” which he alleged is being pushed “down our throats now.”

Then came his sinister line about Fauci, who has been targeted by repeated death threats for his public health work during the coronavirus pandemic.

“And by the way, we should try Anthony Fauci and put him in front of a firing squad,” said Bennett, not really expanding on what crime he believes Fauci has committed.

Then he added: “And for the Secret Service, if they’re listening, I’m not advocating we kill Anthony Fauci … until he’s convicted of his crimes through a court.”

Fauci, as a highly visible U.S. health official, has spoken about the barrage of conservative criticism, vitriol and violent threats he’s received for his public health advice during the pandemic.

He called for the firing of Fox News’ Jesse Watters after the TV host in December urged young conservatives to “ambush” him and “go for the kill shot” with questions.

“The only thing that I have ever done throughout these two years is to encourage people to practice good public health practices: to get vaccinated, to be careful in public settings, to wear a mask,” Fauci said at the time.

Then there was the QAnon/White Christian Nationalism misapproriately named “Patriots Arise” event in Pennsylvania last week. These people are insurrectionists, not patriots.

You had better take this QAnon/White Christian Nationalism shit seriously. These dangerously violent people (the insurrectionists on January 6) could actually get elected to office and then begin their war to purge America of everyone who does not subscribe to their QAnon/White Christian Nationalism cult in pursuit of a white Christian nation.
