Conspiracy Theories

Anti-vaxxers are now spreading conspiracy theories about Ebola

Thanks to the circus of cable news, there’s plenty of fear-mongering and misinformation out there in regards to Ebola. But with the added layer of people who promote junk science and conspiratorial lies, it can become a dangerous mix.

In their endless fight against the CDC and Big Pharma’s conspiracy with the media to disseminate lies about vaccines, the anti-vax movement has now turned their sights towards the recent Ebola outbreak, claiming that it’s simply an attempt to cover-up the vaccine-autism link – or just a downright fraud altogether.

Thanks to the circus of cable news, there’s plenty of fear-mongering and misinformation out there in regards to Ebola. But with the added layer of people who promote junk science and conspiratorial lies, it can become a dangerous mix.

In the usual tradition of conspiracy theories, anti-vaxxers are focusing on some ‘suspicious coincidences’ that have arisen during the Ebola outbreak.

The anti-vaxxer website Child Health Safety seems to think that it’s too much of a coincidence that the Ebola outbreak came just around the same time a CDC “whistleblower,” who has long been discredited, was set to make a statement about autism.

How is it we suddenly have an Ebola “outbreak” and it is coming to the USA too?

The Ebola outbreak is quite a coincidence – senior CDC scientist Dr Thompson has been talking with Dr Hooker for 10 months about the CDC knowing the MMR vaccine causes autism. The Ebola “problem” was introduced gently to the US public earlier in the year.

Now we have an Ebola “outbreak” in the west just when Hooker’s paper has been published and the admissions about the CDC knowing the MMR vaccine causes Autism issue are breaking news which the mainstream media refuse to report.

And today’s news of a “vaccine” will of course be certain to ensure editors will publish nothing about MMR vaccine causing autism.

Of course to test a new vaccine and a new drug one needs a clinical trial. But people tend not to get Ebola – it has been pretty quiet for a very long time – until now.

And suddenly they ship the sick people off to the USA with all the attendant risks of spreading the disease instead of treating them where they got sick.

Seems a gift for WHO and the CDC but who wrapped it and how long ago?

So it is impossible to supply to Africa an emergency medical unit and equip it to treat the victims? They have to be shipped back to the USA with all the risk of spread of the disease? Isn’t that reckless?

And what a miracle that so many of the “victims” have managed to survive. “Don’t worry – the US government and CDC will save you”.

So it looks like being proven right and Donald Trump’s triumph over that is trumped by trumpeting from WHO and the CDC with the Ebola vaccine news.

Another website picks on the reliable conspiracy theorist’s target, the U.N., claiming that the outbreak is planned as a ruse to boost the U.N.’s vaccine campaigns – and to use unknowing humans as test dummies for experimental antidotes:

The Ebola pandemic began in late February in the former French colony of Guinea while UN agencies were conducting nationwide vaccine campaigns for three other diseases in rural districts. The simultaneous eruptions of this filovirus virus in widely separated zones strongly suggests that the virulent Zaire Ebola strain (ZEBOV) was deliberately introduced to test an antidote in secret trials on unsuspecting humans.

The cross-border escape of Ebola into neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia indicates something went terribly wrong during the illegal clinical trials by a major pharmaceutical company. Through the lens darkly, the release of Ebola may well have been an act of biowarfare in the post-colonial struggle to control mineral-rich West Africa.

In another example of how conspiracy theorists latch onto discredited figures to promote their ideas, some sites are pointing to an article written for a Liberian newspaper by Dr. Cyril Broderick – a plant pathologist – who claims that Ebola was introduced by the U.S. military and/or pharmaceutical companies for “bio-war research.”

But in a glaring contradiction within their own camp, some anti-vaxxer groups don’t even believe Ebola exists. According to the Vaccine Information Network, Ebola is a “fake pandemic” that is being used to “poison us with drugs and vaccines.”

In a piece posted to their website on October 4, VIN interviews “investigative journalist” Jon Rappoport (who is just an owner of another conspiracy site called nomorefakenews.com):

Q: But people are sick and dying.

A: People are always sick and dying. You can find them anywhere you look. That doesn’t mean they’re Ebola cases.

Q: In other words, medical authorities can place a kind of theoretical grid over sick and dying people and reinterpret them as “Ebola.”

A: Exactly. The map can be drawn in any number of ways

Q: So the symptoms of Ebola, like cough, fever, fatigue, diarrhea—these can be attributed to many causes?

A: Absolutely. The flu, for example.

Q: What about the health workers in West Africa who have died?

A: Since unreliable diagnostic tests would have been run on them, we don’t have any idea why they died. But at least some of them were suffering greatly from working inside hazmat suits, sealed off from the outside. In a one-hour shift, in boiling heat, they were losing five quarts of body fluid, then coming out, rehydrating, disinfecting with toxic chemicals, putting their suits on again, going back to patients for the next shift, losing extraordinary amounts of body fluid again, and so forth and so on. That would cause anyone to collapse.

But whether they believe the virus exists or not, anti-vaxxers are pushing the idea that the outbreak is a false-flag operation designed to convince people that vaccines are the only cure.

Demonstrating how dangerous this ideology truly is, anti-vaxxers are telling their followers that alternative cures can treat Ebola, such as vitamin C, red algae extract and even certain types of spider venom.

Would the people propagating this idiocy trust a dose of vitamin C to treat their children should they contract this horrific virus? Good question.

    Its because of idiots like this, that we can’t have nice things in our society. They break all the shiny new toys when they stomp around pretending they’re Godzilla.
