Far-right podcast host Douglas Kuzma – an outspoken critic of the COVID-19 vaccine – died while battling the coronavirus he contracted after attending a QAnon-friendly gathering in Texas that rightists baselessly claim is the victim of a anthrax attack.
“I really love him and I would do anything for him,” Amanda Kuzma told The Daily Beast on Thursday morning while confirming her father’s death earlier this week. “He was a great father.”

(Amanda Kuzma confirmed to The Daily Beast on Thursday morning, that her father was hospitalized before his death.)
“I know he hasn’t answered the phone in the last three days,” Greer told The Daily Beast in late December.
