    Michael Flynn says Covid created by ‘global elites’ planning to ‘impose’ new virus
    Disgraced former Donald Trump aide Michael Flynn has pushed another conspiracy theory, this time involving an unknown “global elite type of people” who he claimed were orchestrating the Covid-19 pandemic and are now planning to “impose” a new virus on the public.

    Mr Flynn, a former national security adviser to the 45th president, said there was going to be an “uptick in other aspects of the Covid (sic)”.

    Michael Flynn Spreads Bizarre Conspiracy Theory About Vaccines In Salad Dressing
    Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn appears to be peddling a new conspiracy theory that salad dressing could contain the COVID-19 vaccine.

    Flynn, a QAnon conspiracy theory disciple who called for a military coup in the U.S. earlier this year, spread the false claim during an appearance on an internet show dedicated to COVID-19 and election fraud conspiracy theories, according to former federal prosecutor Ron Filipkowski, who shared a clip from the discussion on Twitter.

    “Somebody sent me a thing this morning where they’re talking about putting the vaccine into salad dressing. Or salads. Have you seen this? I mean it’s—and I’m thinking to myself, this is the Bizarro World, right?” Flynn can be heard saying in the clip. “This is definitely the Bizarro World. ... These people are seriously thinking about how to impose their will on us in our society, and it has to stop.”​



    Yes, Michael, it has to stop.

    I find it fascinating how QAnon is still going. I remember looking at those posts and having fun with the interpretation years ago, seemes like another lifetime ago. They're mostly harmless but it'll be cool to see where this all goes.

    Wouldn't Michael Flynn himself be a part of the global elite. He is a multimillionnaire who wielded political power and had influence on the global scale. That makes him a member on the global elite.

    Flynn keeps embarrassing himself. I think he has sold out to money interests and is selling out America. The question is why are conservative citizens so attracted to these kinds of corrupt people.

    QAnon has ruined lives and split families, inspired insurrection and fomented mass delusion.

    It is not in any way harmless.

    For makers of bleach and invermectin? Apparently.

    Also for irresponsible social media. ;)

    Well yes, if one believes in free markets and the power of the profit motive, as right of centre people do, this is not exactly shocking. Big Pharma's fast action has saved millions of lives that could not have otherwise have been saved.

    This thread is about Covid conspiracy theories, though.

    So you want healthcare reform where it's not a for-profit business and those who can't afford insurance are left bankrupt?

    OK, so are you a Capitalist who is in favor of big businesses making profits, or not?

    Are you suggesting these companies should not make profit on vaccines and give them away at cost?

    I mean compared to how it could be, hasn't caused any mass murder or something like that. Just basic political ideologies that formed nations have done that much (that you described). To me it's more amusing if anything, and at best slightly sympathetic.

    That is likely due to the USA having a stable justice system, for the most part. If there were more prosecutors sympathetic to the extreme right then these actors wouldn't fear the law. Look at the two prosecutors in the Arbery case that are being held accountable for covering for these killers.

    Laughable now. But many right wing extremists are getting their people into election boards and other positions of authority where they can sabotage democracy from a "legal" approach.

    My concern is not enough pro-democracy citizens are rising up and protesting what they are doing.

    There is no healthcare reform.

    Let's just say reasonable cost based on wholesale rates, by accommodating profit with protections from price gouging its consumers would be extremely beneficial and helpful, but of course that isn't expected in this day and age.
