The list of Wuhan virus stay-at-home hypocrites just keeps growing by the second.

You’ve got the left-wing media. Democratic politicians. “Progressive” celebrities. Liberal “activists.” And now … we have the one-man-show out of Florida who just a month ago was celebrated by media outlets like CNN for coronavirus-shaming beachgoers in Florida, suggesting their activities were going to kill people.

Here’s how the Biden News Net-, I mean CNN amplified his “message” at the time:

But when he heads out, Daniel Uhlfelder dons a raggedy black robe, conceals his face with a black cloth and wields his scythe.

Uhlfelder, an attorney, is haunting Florida beaches dressed as the Grim Reaper to protest their reopening, which he believes is premature.


Uhlfelder is a staunch advocate for public beach access in the state, even butting heads with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, whose Florida Panhandle home is parked on a private beach. But allowing anyone on the beach during the pandemic is a mistake, he said — one that could endanger the community.


“I know how beautiful and attractive our beaches are. But if we don’t take measures to control things, this virus is going to get really, really out of control,” he warned.


Uhlfelder has frequently posted photo and video updates to his Twitter account of his beach activities, letting people know of his supposed commitment to the health and well-being of every Florida citizen:

He has even given out “body bags” to people on Florida beaches, and has solicited for donations that would go towards making more of them:

Here we are two weeks out from his “body bags” tweet and here’s what he’s up to now:


And as for his social-distancing lectures? That was soooo yesterday, y’all:

Oh, but he’s still keeping up with case numbers, even though he’s done with coronavirus-shaming people because, you know, Orange Man Bad and stuff:

$5 says he’s auditioning for a commentator role on CNN, seeing as though the network has sent its own reporters to beaches in the south as recently as two weeks ago to hypocritically mask-shame people who were on the beach in the middle of a pandemic.

As I’ve said before, if these people didn’t have double standards they’d have no standards at all.
