A self-described “right-wing religious fanatic” online radio host in Colorado who called for boycott of Coronavirus vaccines and ridiculed masks, has died of COVID-19 in Colorado.
Bob Enyart’s death was announced two weeks after the Denver Bible church said he and his wife, Cheryl, had been taken to hospital. The couple had refused COVID-19 vaccines over concerns about how they were developed, according to the website of his online Real Science Radio show.
Enyart’s co-host, Fred Williams shared news of his death on Facebook on Monday September 13. He wrote;
“It comes with an extremely heavy heart that my close friend and co-host of Real Science Radio has lost his battle with Covid.
“Bob Enyart was 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.
“Heaven’s gain has left an enormous hole here on earth.”
Denver Post however reported that Enyart was a practiced and brutal provocateur who once used a show on cable television to mock by name people who died of Aids.
According to a 1999 profile by Westword, Enyart “gleefully read obituaries of Aids sufferers while cranking Another One Bites the Dust by Queen”. Enyart also called for women who had abortions to face the death penalty.
On COVID-19 vaccines, Enyart said people should boycott the shots “because …they tested these three products on the cells of aborted babies”. Last October he successfully sued the state of Colorado over COVID-related restrictions on church attendance.
On his website, Enyart called government officials who promoted face masks “nazis” and “mask-mandating control-freak bureaucrats.” He also promoted misinformation about face masks, falsely claiming they restricted oxygen and lowered IQs.
Four other radio hosts have also died from COVID-19 complications after opposing vaccines and other COVID-19 public health measures including mask mandates.
More than 99% of recent COVID-19 deaths in the United States have involved people who are not vaccinated against the virus, chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said on “Meet The Press” July 4.
