A weaponized conspiracy theory seeded and amplified by Mike Flynn and his QAnon network has gained a significant foothold. At 11:20AM PST on 10/4/23 an Emergency Alert System test was supposed to turn “some of [the vaccinated population] into zombies.”
The mechanism for this was supposed to be 5G signals that would interact with nanobots introduced by the COVID vaccine which would release the deadly Marburg virus into people’s bloodstreams which would somehow result in… zombies.
In May 2022, Mike Flynn’s network seeded this insane narrative, up to and including the fact that people would “turn into zombies” and suddenly start to “bite people.”
As I wrote about at the time, I have deep concerns about Putin’s biological weapons stocks and whether he is using propaganda about biowarfare as projection or a rationale for future attacks.
Over the last month, Mike Flynn’s network has been pushing the idea that today—as I write—my vaccinated status may have resulted in literal zombification. The fact that only “some” people will turn into zombies is an important detail.
The goal of genocidal propaganda—which this is—is to prepare combatants for death and murder—and to put the power of identifying the enemy in the hands of the authoritarian cult leaders.
Just as Mike Flynn has claimed that he can identify “psychopath pedophiles” that his cult should “go after,” this 5G Marburg narrative provides a way for propagandists to allege that their target is a “zombie.”
“Zombies” are not just a movie trope. “Zombie” is essentially a code word for dehumanized person.
What happens to zombies in movies? They get slaughtered.
What happens when a family member turns into a zombie in the movies? You are forced to kill them.
Mike Flynn is extremely familiar with the Nazi plan to create a thousand-year Third Reich and is not hiding the fact that he is trying to start a Fourth Reich in America.
Flynn’s antisemitism and psychopathy is well documented. His treasonous actions happen under the nose of law enforcement every day. He no longer hides a thing.
Just today Flynn reposted his infamous “digital soldiers” speech from a week after stealing the 2016 election which describe his own actions as creating an “insurgency” and “irregular warfare”—which, according to US doctrine—is a violent struggle between state and non-state actors.”
Flynn also posted a fawning message about white supremacist dictator Viktor Orban who did a sickeningly antisemitic, bigoted speech that blamed “Democrats in the US” for Hungary’s problems.
“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
The absurdities, like the Marburg Zombie paranoia are coming fast and furious. It is shocking how willing we are to wait for the atrocities to come before we do a damn thing about it.
