Corona Virus Whackadoodles, Whackjobs and Conspiracy Theories (other than from the White House)

If this doesn't belong in it's own thread, pls move it.

I thought I'd amuse myself by going over to Twitter and typing "qanon corona" into the search box.

At the top was Scott Lively. A quick search of this forum shows Ammon Bundy saying basically, "Sure we're crazy, but we aren't racist homophobic crazy like Scott Lively.

Dr. Lively aligns the 2009 timelines of the Swine Flu Pandemic and the Tea Party Movement as evidence that the elites orchestrate public health crises as a "soft" form of police state response to populist threats to their power, then shows a nearly identical alignment of the Coronavirus Pandemic timeline with the Trump impeachment acquittal and pivot from defense to offence. His full, documented article on this theme will be published tomorrow at ScottLively.net, but a preview will be sent by email to subscribers of his online newsletter. Email "subscribe" to scottlivelyministries@gmail.com to be added to that list.

Jim Bakker is back to his old tricks peddling silver pills as a cure/preventative for corona, two states are going after him at the moment.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

Missouri Sues Televangelist Jim Bakker For Selling Fake Coronavirus Cure

Originally published on March 11, 2020 5:37 pm
Televangelist Jim Bakker held up a blue and silver bottle, gazing intently at the label, as he questioned the woman sitting next to him.

"This influenza that is now circling the globe," Bakker said on the Feb. 12 broadcast of The Jim Bakker Show, "you're saying that Silver Solution would be effective."

His guest, the so-called "natural health expert" Sherrill Sellman, falsely implied that the liquid would likely be effective. The coronavirus impacting more than 120,000 people worldwide does not yet have a known treatment or cure.

"Well, let's say it hasn't been tested on this strain of the coronavirus, but it has been tested on other strains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours," Sellman said. "Totally eliminate it. Kills it. Deactivates it."

Can we dump randos here?
It’s only killing Chinese DNA people. It is extremely selective. Everybody that has died outside of China – I have not found any evidence that they are not Chinese. Ninety-six percent of the people that died of SARS were Chinese DNA people.

Yeah, Cynthia McKinney isn't quite a rando. She's the former DC congresswomen that said the defense department was executing hundreds (thousands?) of people during Katrina. She's the left's version of Alex Jones but whackier.

Feb 26th. Now many are in self-quarantine and who knows how many of them are infected. What a difference a few weeks makes when you're an idiot. Time for the FEMA Camps to be rolled out for them. Did anyone hear from Soros yet? :smoking:
Trump's Biggest Supporters Think The Coronavirus Is A Deep State Plot
While Donald Trump has tasked Mike Pence with leading the country to safety.
Ryan Broderick BuzzFeed News Reporter Posted on February 26, 2020, at 7:37 p.m. ET

The World Health Organization is still declining to call the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, but the number of infections and deaths continue to climb as the disease spreads. Public health authorities are split about whether containing or mitigating the virus is the best option — but both depend on whether President Donald Trump and his most conspiracy-addled followers can be convinced to go along with it. At a press conference on Wednesday night, Trump praised his administration’s decision to restrict travel of people from countries where infections have been diagnosed, claimed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was trying to create a panic for political purposes, and announced that Vice President Mike Pence would lead the official coronavirus response. “Because of all we've done, the risk to the American people remains very low,” Trump said. “The level that we've had in our country is very low and those people are getting very better.”

Trump at the press conference said he agreed with claims that Rush Limbaugh (upon whom he bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the State of the Union speech) made during his radio show this week, that the deep state had created the coronavirus as a political weapon to “to bring down Trump.” When a reporter asked Wednesday night if he was minimizing the deadly potential of the outbreak, Trump laughed and joked that it was no different than the flu. "You don't have to necessarily grab any handrail if you don't have to,” he said. It’s true that the number of cases in the United States is still low, with 14 cases diagnosed. This is in addition to 39 cases repatriated from high-risk settings — a current total of 53 cases. Still, preparations are being made for things to worsen.

There are currently 81,000 cases worldwide, 2,700 deaths, the majority in China. But with outbreaks in Iran, Italy, and South Korea, the CDC’s director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Nancy Messonnier, suggested on Friday it might be only a matter of weeks before US officials start talking about school and business closings. As authorities get ready, the president, some administration officials, and allies are either baselessly bragging about how prepared we are to contain the disease or spreading conspiracy theories about it — and there’s a ready audience for those fevered narratives. On Monday, while in India on his first state visit, Trump tweeted, “the Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countries.” Two days later, the president doubled down, railing against the media for spreading hysteria.“Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC [sic] (Comcast) & @CNN are doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus [sic] look as bad as possible, including panicking markets, if possible,” he wrote.

Echoing the message, hyperpartisan news sites, conspiracy theorists, and scammers have sown panic. In the last two weeks, a narrative has solidified among his base: The virus is a deep state plot, possibly created by the Chinese government, to hurt Trump’s reelection chances. Infowars ran a video claiming the Department of Homeland Security was buying up emergency food provisions; the site's sidebar advertised food rations on its online store. Jordan Sather, a YouTuber aligned with the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory, has told followers that coronavirus is a “new fad disease,” the release of which was “planned.” Sather has also promoted the idea that QAnon followers can protect themselves from COVID-19, the illness caused by the new coronavirus, by drinking chlorine dioxide — otherwise known as bleach. Limbaugh and other pro-Trump media sites have also attacked Messonnier, the sister of Rod Rosenstein — a longtime Trump punching bag and former deputy attorney general.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow claimed the US had an “airtight containment” of the virus. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, during an interview last month with Fox Business, said the coronavirus’s toll on mainland China could boost US employment. Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro claimed that vaccine development will be on "Trump time" and said to expect a faster release to the public. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told BuzzFeed News that a vaccine will only be safe and available for limited distribution to doctors and the most vulnerable patients, those who are elderly or have a compromised immune system, within two years. Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, while speaking on Fox News last week, claimed the virus could be a lab-made bioweapon, a hoax popular among QAnon followers.
***
But Facebook and Twitter are still full of hoaxes and rumors about COVID-19. Travis View, a QAnon researcher and cohost of the QAnon Anonymous podcast, told BuzzFeed News he believes many pro-Trump conspiracy theorists believe they’re safe from the outbreak: “Many QAnon followers feel that they're safe from serious disasters, including global pandemics, because ‘patriots are in control.’ This stems from their belief that serious disasters are engineered by the evil ‘cabal,’ rather than being natural and unpredictable.” “It’s not so much of a question of if [an outbreak in the US] will happen anymore, but rather more of a question of exactly when this will happen,” Messonnier said at a briefing Wednesday. As a consequence, it could be a battle between ideology and nature. And when that happens, as was demonstrated in South Korea recently, nature wins.
***
In comments not dissimilar to what Trump tweeted about the “Caronavirus,” Lee claimed the disease was the “devil’s deed” to stop the church’s growth. In the US, similar claims could be found in QAnon circles. On Tuesday, @Inevitable_ET went viral with a tweet in which they claimed to have found a post from Q from two years ago that proved that Q knew about the coronavirus years before — and that if everyone trusted Trump, they would be fine. “We have assurance of safety and no justification to panic,” another user responded.

What an idiot. The death certificate says what you died FROM, not what it was related to. My husband's first wife died at 39 secondary to lung cancer. Her death certificate says she died of pulmonary embolism. Cancer isn't listed.

So if COVID kills a cancer patient, COVID is what goes on the death certificate. It's the same here.

An Okeechobee County Commissioner offered some controversial and now-debunked advice to people worried about contracting the novel coronavirus: Kill it with a blow dryer.

Commissioner Bryant Culpepper explained the junk remedy he learned from the One America News Network claiming the coronavirus cannot live at temperatures greater than 136 degrees.

“I said how would you get the temperature up to 136 degrees? The answer was you use a blow dryer. You hold a blow dryer up to your face and you inhale through your nose and it kills all the viruses in your nose,” Bryant said during a March 20 meeting of the Okeechobee County Commissioners, according to Lake Okeechobee News.

OAN reporter roasted for asking Trump if saying 'Chinese food' is racist: 'Dumbest question' ever
BY JOE CONCHA - 03/19/20 05:53 PM EDT

A reporter from right-leaning One America News was roasted on social media on Thursday after asking President Trump if he thought the term "Chinese food" is racist, with one member of the press calling it "the dumbest question I've ever heard." The backlash against OAN's Chanel Rion comes after she also raised eyebrows for accusing "major left-wing media," including some reporters in the White House briefing room, of teaming up "with Chinese communist party narratives."

“Mr. President, do you consider the term ‘Chinese food’ to be racist because it is food that originated from China?” Rion asked, preparing for another question about the media. “I don’t think that’s racist at all,” Trump replied. “On that note, major left-wing media, even in this room, have teamed up with Chinese communist party narratives, and they are claiming you are racist for making these claims about ‘Chinese virus,’” Rion continued. “Is it alarming that major media players, just to oppose you, are siding with foreign state propaganda, Islamic radicals, and Latin gangs and cartels and they work right here out of the White House with direct access to you and your team?”

“It amazes me when I read the things that I read,” Trump replied. "I don’t think anybody has done as much as I have done in three years. This administration has done a great job. But the press is very dishonest," the president added.

Backlash on the questions from Rion was immediate on social media, and it came from across the political spectrum.

This might be the dumbest question I’ve ever heard. https://t.co/laU5gA6cQC

This is it. You're in the White House press briefing room with access to the most powerful person in the world. You stand up, put on a serious face, open your mouth, and ask https://t.co/UEVRFc6sp2
— CJ Ciaramella (@cjciaramella) March 19, 2020

So the "Chinese food" vs. "Chinese virus" argument from the OANN person almost made the exact opposite point of what she intended. Bizarre & unhelpful. The coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China & was covered up by the Chinese Communist Party. It's not more complicated than that.
— JERRY DUNLEAVY (@JerryDunleavy) March 19, 2020

Thank god we have OANN in the briefing room at this critical moment in our nations history
— Sam Stein (@samstein) March 19, 2020

Idiot “reporter” for the right-wing “news” outlet @OANN at White House coronavirus briefing tells Trump that the term “Chinese virus” can’t be racist because the term “Chinese food” is not racist.
As if food is the same as a deadly virus.
— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) March 19, 2020

the OAN chinese food question is every bit as stupid PBS's yamiche alcindor taking yesterday's briefing down the "kung flu" rabbit hole. funny part is that only one of these questions has journos all upset and calling for a group to have its credentials stripped.

I don't have a problem with the notion that it would be satisfying to see the propagators of nonsense and bigotry (the Hobby Lobby monsters and their ilk) experience the karmic results of their crap. But I don't claim to be a nice person!

If the Hobby Nuts really believe their argle-bargle, they should invite their most loyal customers to visit the stores often, come up close and personal, exchange coughs and sneezes, and enjoy the natural immunity to viruses granted by their belief in non-existent super-beings.

Actually, I don't really think that. Viruses don't distinguish between sensible and stupid people. Sensible people can protect themselves and others to an extent, but, as in all things, the stupids have the greatest disruptive and destructive power.

The name sounded familiar so I looked him up and was reminded why I loathe Wikipedia. His entry is longer and lovingly more detailed than those for many significant historical figures. "Crackpot who espouses X, Y and Z" is more than enough.
