Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West, who is currently recovering from a case of COVID-19, said his hospitalization with the virus has made him “more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates.”
West, who announced Saturday night that he has coronavirus-related pneumonia, advocated for monoclonal antibody infusion therapy as a way to combat COVID-19 instead of vaccines.
“I can attest that, after this experience, I am even more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates. Instead of enriching the pockets of Big Pharma and corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, we should be advocating the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy,” Allen said on Twitter from the hospital Sunday morning.
Allen and his wife Angela underwent monoclonal antibody infusion therapy at a Dallas emergency room on Saturday, the candidate revealed in a tweet. He said he now has natural immunity and double the antibodies.
West, a former GOP U.S. House member representing Florida and the ex-chair of the Texas Republican Party, is running to unseat sitting Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas), whom he has criticized for his handling of the pandemic and his stance on immigration at the Texas-Mexico border.
State Sen. Don Huffines (R) is also running a primary bid against Abbott.
West wrote on Twitter that if he is elected governor he will “crush” any individuals who attempt to implement vaccine mandates.
“As Governor of Texas, I will vehemently crush anyone forcing vaccine mandates in the Lone Star State. There are far better protocols that individual citizens can utilize and decide for themselves,” Allen said.
“Our bodies are our last sanctuary of liberty and freedom, I will defend that for everyone, even the progressive socialist jackasses who must be saved from themselves,” he added.
Angela West, who is vaccinated, was released from the hospital to return home, according to a tweet from Allen. The candidate, who has not yet received the shot, is still at Medical City in Plano, Texas.
West said his oxygen saturation levels are now between 94 and 96, after previously dropping to 85. He said his blood pressure is at 120 over 74 and his recent temperature was 98.7.
West has suspended in-person campaign events until he is cleared to return to the trail.
Abbott tested positive for COVID-19 in a breakthrough case in August. At the time of his announcement, he said he was experiencing no symptoms.
More than 72 percent of Texans aged 12 and older are at least partially inoculated against COVID-19, according to the state’s vaccine tracker.
Is West aware that he is advocating for a therapeutic medication that relies for its existence on a steady flow of live body parts from recently murdered preborn infants?
The monoclonal antibody treatment ain’t cheap either, but at least it’s only dispensed if you actually have the disease, and then only once, and even then only if you have significant symptoms. Lots different from two or three or maybe four injections for every warm body over the age of five.
Does look as though our prayers for LTC West have been answered.
“Is West aware that he is advocating for a therapeutic medication that relies for its existence on a steady flow of live body parts from recently murdered preborn infants?”
Can you provide some references for this?
I am sure he is aware that it’s tested on a fetal-derived cell line and it is under a EUA for treating covid. He also has covid pneumonia and was sick enough that he ended up hospitalized. To develop it they also used their genetically engineered mice that have a human immune system to evaluate many different antibodies. He’s relying on artificially created antibodies rather than his own immune system because he’s quite sick.
He’s hospitalized with bilateral covid pneumonia and his improved O2 levels are because he’s on a nasal cannula. Although he’s claiming it’s not serious, he’s also an inpatient so it’s not mild either. The thrice vaccinated Governor of Texas also took EUA monoclonal antibodies the same day he tested positive (turns out he was tested daily).
In general, I don’t mind companies making money (his ‘enrich pharmaceutical’ companies line). If it helps him, I doubt he will mind that it cost 50 times more per unit than what he’s comparing it to, although of course it’s only given to high-risk infected patients. America is great in part because companies can make money.
I see his wife is already back home, that’s good. I hope they’re both well soon.
The monoclonal antibody treatment was created using research done with stem cell lines created from tissue taken from one or more elective abortions.
Aborted tissue is not used in the manufacture.
But people could have issue with how we got here.
“To develop it they also used their genetically engineered mice that have a human immune system...”
Literally powered by ***live*** human organs that must continually be harvested from recently murdered preborn human infants to be divided into small chunks and transplanted into each such mouse.
Has this industry not wholly been coopted by Satan?

Break out the marshmallows!
Another handy link and, boy, did those eggheads make it hard to find. Sheesh...
He’s not against people making money, he’s against corrupt govt forcing something on people they don’t want or need.
I like West but the monoclonal treatments are also produced by Big Pharma.
Do you have a reference or a cell line name?
Or better, a reference to their entire method.
