Monkeypox Outbreak Unleashes New Conspiracy Theory About Bill Gates With #BillGatesBioTerrorist Trend

Well, it certainly didn’t take long. Once the current monkeypox outbreak spreads to the United States, it was only a matter of time before conspiracy theories about it began to spread. And it was only a matter of time before such conspiracy theories began to refer to Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates.

All of this should be as surprising as a catfight or “why are you sucking here” speech on a reality TV show. After all, consider how many conspiracy theories involving Bill Gates have emerged since the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic began in early 2020. Some of them were covered by me. Forbes For example, Gates-batch-microchip-in-Covid-19-vaccine-to-track-everyone-for-who-knows-why conspiracy theories are two ironic things people have shared on Facebook and on smartphones. actually Track people. Some politicians have promoted such theories by not condemning or even propagating them.

Speaking of politicians, just guess which congressman has been pushing the latest monkey pox and Gates conspiracy theories in a space-laser-like fashion. Here’s a hint. Her name rhymes with “Are Jury Mailer Bean”. Yes, see Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) what she said on her own Facebook Live show on Thursday. MTG: Live:

Wow, it’s definitely live. Throughout the video, Taylor Greene made several claims about the outbreak without providing the little piece of evidence. For example, she said, “Bill Gates is very concerned about monkey pox. Because this obviously means he can make a lot of money. him and his other friends.” Then she spoke of the “disgusting” picture of a monkey chickenpox lesion. They will show kids with this all over their face. And, of course, where they come from … I don’t know where they come from.”

Taylor Greene didn’t specify who “they” were. can they be? gazpacho police? Or is it a “medical brown shirt”, not the UPS driver Taylor Green was referring to in July 2021? Still, Taylor Greene said, “Then they’ll tell you that you should wear a mask, because if you get close to someone’s face and they spit on you, you’re going to get this horrific and terrifying disease, monkey head.” For reference, monkey pox is very different from Covid-19 coronavirus. So far, there have been 92 laboratory confirmed cases and 28 suspected monkey pox cases in 12 countries, but no deaths. Monkey pox virus is clearly not contagious and not contagious. Severe acute As Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) tends to spread through small aerosolized respiratory droplets, the monkey chickenpox outbreak will not trigger the same response as mask requirements in all public indoor venues. -CoV-2 did.

Until then, Taylor Greene had not mentioned Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in the video. Fauci is also the chief medical adviser to the President of the United States. Taylor Green was once called “the commander and chief”. Oh, but it was only a matter of time before Taylor Green mixed up Fauci’s name. We didn’t have to wait too long for Taylor Greene to switch over to Fauci, or at least Fauci’s pillow version. she said I know you have Dr. Fauci’s pillow that you sleep with every night.” There are Marjorie Taylor Greene and MTG pillows sold on Amazon, but it’s not clear how many people actually have Fauci pillows.

Taylor Green said, “You have to order your Bill Gates pillow. You have to have a Bill Gates pillow and hug it every night, because Bill Gates will save the day.”

Taylor Greene is not the only one to make such an unsubstantiated claim. In fact, the hashtag #BillGatesBioTerrorist was trending on Twitter on Saturday under the name Renee DiResta. Researcher at Stanford Internet ObservatoryPointed out here:

Who used this hashtag? Well, there are some identifiable people. However, there are also many anonymous social media accounts. For example, an account called “Just call me Mike” claimed that Gates was “emitting pathogens and testing people” and that this happened with Covid-19 and monkey pox.

Yes, “Call me Anonymous” would be a more appropriate name than “Just call me Mike”. An unconfirmed Twitter account linked to something called the Thomas Paine Podcast claimed in the following tweet that Gates had “the bizarre ability to predict future epidemics and their respective PROFTs.”

What evidence did those social media posts provide to support those claims? Not a lot. Some have pointed to Gates’ previous comments urging the world to become more prepared for bioterrorist smallpox attacks.

But such evidence would be as weak as a sweatshirt made of toilet paper. Warnings about smallpox are different from warnings about monkeypox. No two diseases are the same. Moreover, Gates wasn’t the only one to warn of the possibility of a bioterrorist smallpox attack. Over the past few decades, many public health and security experts have urged the world to be better prepared. Eventually, after the World Health Assembly declared the eradication of smallpox in 1980, the absence of naturally occurring cases of smallpox and the cessation of routine immunization against smallpox have made the world population significantly more susceptible to variola virus, the virus that can cause smallpox. became vulnerable. A gas explosion in a Russian laboratory that stored smallpox samples in September 2019 was a reminder that a single accident could cause a smallpox outbreak.

So, why are these conspiracy theories aimed at Gates? Gates has supported immunizations and the development of new vaccines to better prevent and respond to epidemic outbreaks, epidemics and epidemics. So you’ll probably see him as a great target in anti-vaccine campaigns that might try to sell a cure that hasn’t proven itself. Also, could this have something to do with Gates’ efforts to encourage other billionaires and businesses to use more of their accumulated wealth to improve global health? Not all of them board and are satisfied with such encouragement from Gates. Without more evidence, it’s not entirely clear what the motives and sources of many anonymous social media accounts are. One thing is certain. By doing monkey tofu in this way, they seem unhelpful and hurtful in efforts to protect people from such outbreaks now and in the future.
