A community of anti-vaxx conspiracy nuts has contracted a truly, deeply mysterious illness unlike any other currently in wide circulation, and they HAVE ANSWERS!
A group of unvaccinated people who attended a huge conspiracy conference in Dallas earlier this month all became sick in the days after the event with symptoms like coughing, shortness of breath, and fever. Instead of blaming the global COVID pandemic, however, the conspiracy theorists think they were attacked with anthrax.
This far-right conspiracy claim began after a dozen people spent time together in a confined space at the ReAwaken America tour event in Dallas over the weekend of Dec. 10. And the fact that this was likely a COVID outbreak and superspreader event has been almost entirely ignored.
The anthrax claim was first made by Joe Oltmann on his Conservative Daily podcast earlier this week. In a video recording of the podcast, Oltmann can be seen coughing and sneezing on camera, symptoms often associated with COVID-19 or other illnesses.
Instead, Oltmann, who has spent much of 2021 spreading bogus election conspiracies, claimed that he and his fellow conspiracy theorists who recently attended the conference had been attacked by anthrax. The conference, run by Tulsa businessman Clay Clark, was headlined by figures like disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump adviser Roger Stone, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. Eric Trump, the son of former President Donald Trump, also spoke at the event.
If the anthrax theory seems a bit far-fetched to you, how do you explain that this was the SAME CITY in which Comrade John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s radical plans to dismantle the American military were stopped by conveniently unspecified assassins hired by the CIA, LBJ, the mafia, and every member of New Orleans’s LBGT community? And now it’s Donald the Dove’s followers being targeted. CHECKMATE LIBS!
