Lt. Col. Allen West, former Texas GOP chairman and a current Republican candidate for governor of the Lone Star State, doubled down on his stance against vaccine mandates on Sunday after a personal experience with Covid-19.
On Saturday, West posted to Facebook announcing both him and his wife came down with Covid.
West’s wife Angela tested positive after taking both a Covid vaccine and flu shot.
Col. West also clarified that he has not received a Covid vaccine.
“He is already taking Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin protocols,” the post explained.
On Sunday, West wrote, “Yesterday my wife, Angela, and I underwent monoclonal antibody infusion therapy at Advance ER in Dallas — special hat tip to the staff there for their care and professionalism.”
The gubernatorial hopeful said the antibody treatment “results were immediate.”
Col. West claimed his oxygen saturation levels went from 85 to around 95 following his monoclonal antibody therapy treatment.
The experience made West “even more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates,” he explained. “Instead of enriching the pockets of Big Pharma and corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, we should be advocating the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy.”
“Instead of jabbing Americans, and not illegal immigrants, with a dangerous shot which injects them with these spike proteins . . . guess what?” he asked. “I now have natural immunity and double the antibodies, and that’s science.”
The former Texas GOP chairman vowed that if elected governor of the state, he’d “vehemently crush anyone forcing vaccine mandates,” adding, “There are far better protocols that individual citizens can utilize and decide for themselves.”
West ended the thread by telling his followers, “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.”
West posted an update on Monday morning, revealing he is recovering quickly and asking, “Why not promote protocols such as Regeneron monoclonal antibody infusion therapy? Why not promote Budesonide nebulizer treatments? Why not promote healthy over the counter therapies such as zinc — which I take — D3, vitamin C, Hydroxychloroquine, and yes, Ivermectin?”
“I am thankful that the medical professionals here at Medical City listened to me . . . not some boilerplate CDC, Dr. Fauci, or Texas Medical Board mandates,” he added.
After battling Covid-19 firsthand by using the very treatments mainstream media constantly vilifies, West promised to hold those responsible for suppressing the lifesaving treatments accountable.
“I am not a conspiracy theorist but something very nefarious is at work here, and the innocent blood of Texans are on some dirty, corrupt hands,” he stated. “I promise y’all, as Governor of Texas, I will find those hands and ensure they’re held accountable.”
The Texas Republican’s comments come just weeks after the governors of both Texas and Florida bypassed the Biden administration and secured doses of monoclonal antibody treatments directly from a supplier after the feds began rationing doses in September.
