Conspiracy

Conspiracy theorists catch Covid, blame anthrax

A group of conspiracy theorists who caught Covid-19 at a conspiracy conference now claim that it was an anthrax attack.
What happens when a large number of conspiracy theorists get together in a large room ?

The same thing that typically happens when any large group of people get together these days - some of them ended up catching Covid-19 - but very few of them were willing to admit it.

The bizarre series of events took place when a large crowd of unvaccinated conspiracy theorists got together for the ReAwaken America tour event in Dallas on the weekend of December 10th.

The event went as expected, however within days, a significant number of attendees began to experience symptoms typical of coronavirus - a cough, shortness of breath and a fever.
Given that most of them were unwilling to entertain the remote possibility that they might have caught the virus, it has since been claimed that what they are actually suffering from is anthrax poisoning.

"There's a 99.9% chance it's anthrax," said podcaster Joe Oltmann who maintains that he, along with around a dozen other people who had been in the green room, have since fallen ill.

So far, however, nobody who was at the event has actually tested positive for anthrax and there is no direct evidence that anthrax was in any way involved in producing their symptoms.

Some attendees have even claimed that a fog machine used during the event was used to spread the poison - again without evidence and with the organizer strongly denying such accusations.

As things stand, it seems unlikely that anyone involved is likely to accept Covid-19 as the culprit.

Well... not NOW.  His point is that they WERE considered CTs and a few months later, suddenly, they were quite real.  The next CT that will become real is mandatory vaccines in the U.S. that have naught to do with travel, engaging in commerce or daily business.  I mean, they assure us that there's no way the government would try that, huh?  It's already all the rage in Europe.

After reading the stories of the wackos at the event I can see they have the same lack of intelligence of most wackos. I have no sympathy for the anti-vaxxers that try to convince people to injure other people and the children of other people. It's also not surprising that those clown can't tell the difference between COVID and anthrax.

https://www.salon.com/2021/12/22/people-got-sick-after-far-right-conference-claim-its-anthrax-not-19/ I don't believe in karma but for those that do this is karma in action. These are the clowns that got sick. It's like a cleansing. Here are some of the other wackos from the event.

You just think that the stupids can't be even baser when this is the story. How do you accidentally impale yourself with an arrow? Then this admission of the type of stupids the organizer is dealing with. Sorry, I can't stop laughing at these losers

The events have caused infighting within the circle of dumbass wackos. It's a stupid on stupid bare knuckle fight. https://www.thedailybeast.com/lin-wood-goes-to-war-with-kooky-far-right-reawaken-america-tour-beset-by-anthrax-rumors OMG, this gets so funny There is no end to lunacy of conspiracy theorists. Mix in a little anti-vaxx scum attitude and a lack of intelligence and you have a comedy of this nature

It is.  Just so weird too that anyone would "sell" that kind of sillyness.   At least we know he lived by his word.

Silly, we already have "mandatory" vaccines.  Did you not have kids that went to public school?  Did you not join the military, or work in a hospital?   Didn't you get those polio vaccines soaked into sugar cubes in grade school?  I though you were old enough to remember that.

I for one support people's rights not to get vaccinated.  Given who they are... Neo-nazis, conspiratards, noisome Karens, and the loony religious fringe... I think that this attempt at mass suicide by willful stupidity can only be good for the country in the long term.  Like the song says "If you're gonna be dumb, you'd better be tough."   Note, I am in a high risk category, and this is my opinion only, and yes, my shots are up to date, and I have even upgraded to Moderna for the extra 5% protection.
