Why are so many celebrities anti-vaxxers

The epidemic friends against Bill Gates and the "vaccination terror"

Bill Gates has put a little on the side of his entrepreneurial work. The Microsoft founder could probably order a fleet of a few dozen SUVs every day after breakfast without putting too much pressure on his iron reserve for the pension. If he were to make the overpowered vehicles available to a few angry citizens so that they could defiantly drive Greta Thunberg and Co. around the ears - Bill Gates' hearts would fly to.

In reality, things are not going so smoothly because of the actual commitment of one of the richest men in the world. Gates supports the World Health Organization and invests in companies that research vaccines. This causes a worldwide gasp in the conglomerate of conspiracy theorists, anti-vaccination opponents and worshipers of US President Donald Trump. Not least with harsh criticism of Trump and his suspension of payments to the WHO, Gates has drawn all kinds of resentment from these circles. In Texas, anti-vaccination campaigners recently loudly demanded the arrest of Gates at a demonstration. This sociotope is campaigning on social media to ensure that George has replaced Soros von Gates as the most hated man in the world. And that means something.

Gates as the embodiment of evil

The charges against Gates would be established if the epidemic friends had the say: Gates helped spread the virus after one of his companies had long since developed a patent on a vaccine against it. In addition, Gates wants to decimate the world population with vaccinations. With the vaccine against corona, a chip is implanted at the same time and secretly, with which an elite - mostly called "cabal" - plans to remotely control us like drones. Thousands of Youtube clips and memes with bizarre, distorting and surreal collages are spreading in social media at a speed that makes Corona, Ebola and measles viruses look old.

Anti-Vax moms and dads no longer set the tone

One remembers almost with sadness the discussions with ideologically less well-founded anti-Vax moms and dads in past years, when measles regularly popped up somewhere in the world. Vaccination criticism has so far been more of a hobbyhorse of green-alternative bobos. In this milieu, not only cloth diapers have replaced the Pampers and millet balls have replaced the chocolate bananas, but also crude refusal to vaccinate has been a solidarity in health care. Vaccinations were refused for two reasons. Firstly, out of pragmatism, because halfway vaccinated milieus of apparently poorly reflective prolos and bourgeoisie as well-behaved as the sleeping sheep provided for herd protection. Second, from the transfiguration of disease and epidemic. One does not want to deprive the child of "the chance to get through an infection". You wrinkled your nose behind your hand at any measles victims and reminded you that you can't heal against karma anyway. One was proud of one's own child, however, it showed an "astonishing development spurt" after the karma-cleansing steel bath in the children's room.

Plague friends from the right and a cross front against "vaccination terror"

Corona is reshuffling the cards. In the cacophony of the "vaccine-critical" epidemic friends, right-wing influencers set the pace. The willingness to adopt their narrative extends far to the left, however. The message with the slogan "Don't give gates a chance" makes sense for the identitary who imagines himself in a brave fight against "globalists" and for the left grassroots activist who wants to pillory the evil capitalists. The images of this transverse front are not beautiful and they are revealing for both sides.

As early as mid-April, a bizarre mix of right and left activists demonstrated together in Berlin - including against "vaccination terror". Right-wing extremists, anti-vaccination opponents, Gates accusers and conspiracy theorists also took a liking to the cause in the demos against the corona measures that were now popping up in Austria. Identitarians observe the displeasure of the unbalances with satisfaction from the sidewalk. Perhaps the self-proclaimed patriots are still looking for a line on the subject of vaccination. "Herd immunity" sounds tempting to the Volkish Wannabe elite, but from a medical point of view, the "herd" includes significantly more people and cultures than they would like. A dilemma. At one of the demos the participants chant: "We are the Jews". After all, you feel oppressed, dictatorship and persecution are ante portas, so good taste can put a baby elephant further behind. The photo montage of a tattered yellow Star of David from the Nazi era is circulating on Facebook, the inscription "Jew" has been removed and replaced with "Not vaccinated".

A front in Germany is less transverse and more strictly conspiratorial. The activist Oliver Janich, much cited in the Truther scene, chuckles with satisfaction in a Youtube movie: "We put Bill Gates to flight." The conversation partner is the musician Xavier Naidoo, who has been playing chives and fat eyes on every conspiratorial soup for some time. What drove them both on the palm: A number of celebrities had advertised in postings for the "Solidaritypledge" campaign. The call was directed at politicians to step up protection and research for risk groups such as the elderly and health care workers.

Right-wing conspiracy theorists intimidate celebrities

A harmless concern, behind which Janich, Naidoo and Co found compulsory vaccination propaganda. They let fans and all kinds of brothers in anger lace their digital boots and off the leash. The subject "Don't give gates a chance" flooded the threads of unsuspecting supporters. Even the German soccer world champion Mario Götze was forced to delete his supporter post for the action because of the massive shitstorm.

In Austria, the right-wing riot postille "Wochenblick" rejoices over Naidoo's "victory against Bill Gates", ennobles YouTube actor Janich as an investigative journalist and creates mood with dark metaphors: "Bill Gates wants to have seven billion people vaccinated!"

Conspiracy theorists in search of Jewish actors

A small downer for right-wing vaccine opponents: With the hate figure Gates, with the best will in the world, there is no Jewish genealogy. Nevertheless, Janich tries bravely to include Gates in an anti-Semitic narrative that can be used. In the Youtube film "Biotech company discovers corona vaccine" Janich oracles from the "Rothschild-Epstein-Gates-Darpa connection". This narrative turns out to be extremely twisted, this spin will be a little too complicated for the rather simple target audience. Janich already shot a lot of powder for the cause in March when he warned of an impending world government. The Rothschild and Gates families would grab the opportunity to do so by the horns during the pandemic. In addition, Janich warns of a "council republic of virologists" and en passant Janich sprinkles a very plausible source that proclaims: "Bill Gates demands a socialist health system to fight Corona."

Instead of vaccinations: Like Trump, Janich recommends disinfectants

Janich not only has a blooming imagination, but also an alternative to the bad vaccinations. In his Telegram channel he announced that he had been experimenting with disinfectants for a long time: "I had my first positive experience with intravenous chlorine dioxide infusions six years ago. Since then I have perfected the process." Did Janich even put a flea in the ear of the US President? Trump thought out loud that disinfectants could not only fight viruses successfully on the handrail and on the shopping cart, but - via Jaukerl - also in the body.

The political positioning with regard to a possible vaccination against Corona is clear in Austria, in Europe and presumably worldwide. Right-wing populists and right-wing populists are mobilizing, the pretext is "compulsory vaccination", a general furore against vaccinations is probably accepted and largely supported. In Austria, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and his deputy Werner Kogler have made it clear that they are hoping for a vaccination.

FPÖ replaces Greens as the informal protective power of the epidemic friends

The at least informal protectorate of the Greens over pseudomedicine and anti-vaccination is obviously over. The FPÖ will probably jump into the breach. The mutual pushing of the agenda between obscure conspiracy theorists and FPÖ politicians is not a new phenomenon. The current political constellation means that some delicacies can be expected from functionaries in the flat country. An Ankedote from Steyr gives a little foretaste. The dentist and tourism councilor Mario Ritter from the FPÖ tells the public and the Federal Chancellor in a video that "like many other Austrians - certainly not to be vaccinated". The city council then personally puts the rod in the window of Chancellor Kurz: "You may have missed one thing: vaccination damage is only legally enforceable in the USA. Or do you take responsibility?

Post scriptum: I'm looking forward to the discussion with everyone who "doesn't want to give Gates a chance", all the more when the input is made via a Microsoft system. Every piece of the puzzle, no matter how small, to develop a vaccination is to be welcomed. (Christian Kreil, 6.5.2020)
