Liars and quacks started howling like they were tied to a 5G tower and being stuck full of vaccine needles. Victims of the new policy included Candace Owens, Diamond and Silk and some others in the “It’s my Constitutional right to cough in your face” crowd, and the “My grandmother’s already dead, so fuck yours,” set.
There are still great steaming wads of bullshit available on FB, Twitter and YouTube, of course. Fake moon landings, flat earthers, alien abductees and 9-11 truthers still placidly go about their business, trying to convince you that people who actually spend years in learned study do so just so they can lie to you about what they found out, commonly referred to as “so-called experts,” whereas they and their friends, community college dropouts all, have discovered the truth. You can still freely give your money to a pastor who posts a video claiming he just got back from Heaven and spotted a seat with your name on it there, thank the Lord!
But people who are selling fake cures for the virus, or people that are saying that you’re safer from the virus in a mosh pit than you are standing under a cell tower are getting their posts yanked from the major social media. The most famous yankage involved Plandemic This is a mockumentary that claims the current plague is all a plot cooked up by Bill Gates, that there is no virus, that all deaths and symptoms attributed to it are flared out to us from newly installed 5G towers, and that the purpose behind it is so Gates can sell us a vaccine against the virus, which will really be a secret tracking device so Gates will know everyone on Earth’s location 24-7.
Oh, yeah, and chemtrails. Probably. I haven’t watched Plandemic because the only site I found it on wanted me to download it. Who does that anymore?
But Plandemic already had people in an uproar. “I don’t want Bill Gates looking over my shoulder when I’m watching porn!” is a typical reaction, along with random sabotaging of cell towers, both 5G and the regular old 3G and 4G cell towers that the saboteurs currently need to text out conspiracy theories to each other, because all cell towers pretty much look alike.
If this keeps up, if you want to hear bullshit about the coronavirus, you have to turn to the White House. Trump won’t mind. Right now, 82,000 dead people are a tremendous victory over the pandemic. If it’s 300,000 in their graves by November, the triumph of Trump will be even more mind-bogglingly unprecedented in American history. Ask him if you don’t believe me.
Or “unpresidented.” Whatever. The coronavirus won’t care. It’s the honey badger of bugs. Covid-19 don’t give a shit.
