(Republican Insider) – Colin Powell, 84, has passed away after contracting COVID-19. Powell was “double vaccinated” and while he was immunocompromised as he suffered from myeloma, it seems that the vaccines did not lessen his risk of dying from the virus, as they have been advertised to do.
Fox News reporter John Roberts questioned the effectiveness of the vaccines in a tweet after Powell’s death which caused an unmitigated meltdown from crazed blue checkmark liberals on Twitter.
In the since deleted tweet, Roberts simply and reasonably observed that Powell’s death from a breakthrough COVID-19 infection might raise questions as to the vaccine’s long-term efficacy.
“The fact that Colin Powell died from a breakthrough COVID infection raises new concerns about how effective vaccines are long-term,” the White House correspondent tweeted.
There is absolutely no tolerance, however, for common sense and rational observations. The blue checks descended on Roberts without hesitation.
Meanwhile, in a Facebook post Monday, Powell’s family made it a point to note that Powell was “fully vaccinated.” Naturally, the post received a Facebook vaccine advisory.
Colin Powell’s family wanted us to know he was double vaccinated.
There is a reason for that.

Clearly Big Pharma and the CDC are aware that vaccine efficacy wanes over time. That’s their entire argument for wanting to force booster jabs onto everyone. Being “double vaccinated” just isn’t enough. The COVID-mongers want all Americans to be vaccinated over and over and over again until forever.
So, it’s really fascinating to watch the unhinged liberals of the Twittersphere absolutely lose their minds over a simple and mundane suggestion that the vaccines lose effectiveness over time after the very type of person the vaccines are designed to supposedly protect and keep alive, has died.
What seems most likely is that Powell’s “breakthrough case” was actually an adverse reaction to the vaccines. Nonetheless, the Big Pharma Twitter shills quickly went to town, attacking Roberts and his tweet, claiming that he ignored the fact that Powell was 84 and suffering from blood cancer.
Apparently they are ignoring the fact that the vaccines technically should have protected Powell and prevented his death but the vaccines clearly failed. Roberts was right to question their efficacy. In fact, he didn’t go far enough.
Cue the hysterics:
No. GEN Powell was successfully fighting multiple myeloma, a cancer of blood cells, and that fight compromised his immune system — which was a profound challenge when he contracted COVID. https://t.co/zPt2Q3PFle

Fox already using Powell's death as anti-vax fodder. Powell was 84 and was immuno-compromised because of blood cancer (multiple myeloma). https://t.co/wStrK0Cal0

This Fox "straight news" anchor is fearmongering about vaccines without mentioning that Powell was 84 years old and had a type of blood cancer that hurts the body's ability to fight infections pic.twitter.com/ei0l0IxX3U

Gross but not surprising that a Fox "News" reporter is spreading anti-vaxx disinformation
Powell was 84 and had multiple myeloma
Vaccinations bring down the overall amount of COVID circulating in a community to protect those with underlying conditions like Powell https://t.co/3FNpoPNFLb

Powell was 84. He had cancer. Additionally, the fact that he is perhaps the only real high profile breakthrough death we know about only underscores how effective the vaccines are. It doesn’t raised questions about it. https://t.co/X0Ju24qTN0

“The fact that she died even though she was wearing a seatbelt means we shouldn’t wear seatbelts.”

How can John Roberts claim to be an impartial journalist when he tweeted this without mentioning that Colin Powell was 84 and had suffered from blood cancer that weakened his immune system? pic.twitter.com/aWoqchC3Da

Colin Powell was 84 years old, and he was suffering from multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that attacks the B cells which are a crucial part of the immune response to Covid. His death does not raise any concerns about the effectiveness of the vaccines. https://t.co/0FXG9BnoZw

This is really irresponsible. Not just erasing his age and his being a cancer survivor but the passive “raises new concerns.” Among who? Are those concerns truly valid? Are these new excuses from the same old unvaccinated tinfoils? Is this journalism? https://t.co/Y3MaMz3zuB

Colin Powell had multiple myeloma, a type of cancer for which almost any disease can be deadly, but notice that Fox News isn't mentioning that https://t.co/0hpE1N3sCD

Supposedly one of the "serious journalists" at Fox. https://t.co/T7VIejktnK

Naturally, Roberts eventually walked back his tweet and deleted it, then gave a free advertisement for the vaccines. You won’t catch anyone in the mainstream really questioning the vaccines (with the exception of Tucker Carlson) or expressing opposition for them. Somehow, Big Pharma has managed to accomplish complete and total synchronized vaccine support within the media and federal government.
If you think the vaccines will protect you from dying, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
