Stacey Nagy, the mourning widow of a 79-year-old Texan man, blamed Donald Trump and fellow Texans who refuse to wear masks for her husband’s demise. With heartbreak in her words, she commented on Texas’ passivity towards this lethal virus and accused President Trump of not doing enough nationally to tame its spread – something that allowed the pandemic to become even more tumultuous than it already was. In conclusion, Mrs. Nagy sent an urgent message to all those living in Texas who are supporters of Mr.Trump: “May Karma find you all”
As thousands of US citizens perish daily due to COVID-19, and other industrialized countries return to a semblance of normality, the obituary has become alarmingly popular. Sadly, in America money is deemed more important than human life; thus allowing the virus’s impact on our population to spiral out of control before any efficient response was initiated.
The fulsome obituary reads: “David W. Nagy passed away on July 22, 2020, in the ICU at Christus Good Shepherd Hospital in Longview. He suffered greatly from the ravages of the COVID-19 virus and the separation from his much-loved family who were not allowed at his bedside. Mr. Nagy was born on November 7, 1940, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and spent most of his life in California. He made his home in Northeast Texas many years ago after retiring, living in Jefferson for the past three years. Mr. Nagy leaves behind his inconsolable wife, Stacey, his five children, Heath, Stephanie, Heather, David, and Vikki, as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends.”
With tremendous sorrow, the obituary places blame on President Trump for Nagy’s unforeseen passing.
“Family members believe David’s death was needless. They blame his death and the deaths of all the other innocent people on Trump, Abbott, and all the other politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives. Also to blame are the many ignorant, self-centered, and selfish people who refused to follow the advice of the medical professionals, believing their ‘right’ not to wear a mask was more important than killing innocent people. A statement issued by the family declared that Dave did everything he was supposed to do, but you did not. Shame on all of you, and may Karma find you all!”
The obituary incited a vehement uproar across the web, with Reddit being one of the platforms for discussion. Here is an overview of some reactions shared on Reddit:
An infuriated reader penned, “The purposeful misinformation given to us by certain politicians has caused the people of this country so much pain. They are traitors to their country and need to answer to their crimes.”
“My grandfather died last week. He did not die of COVID, but because of the poor handling of COVID in Texas (and the US in general), I was not allowed to see him before he died. I had to say goodbye over the phone, and he could not see me or speak. It was heartbreaking.”
“I hate wearing a mask. I feel suffocated, and after a while, it becomes moist. But I wear it on my way to work. 8 hours at work. On my way home. In shops. Basically, every time I leave my house. I hate it so much. But I wear it to help stop the spread.”
