Note that Russian disinformation has a role in fomenting this, so I'd take it with a grain of salt. The hard right tends to be full of conspiracy theorists, so they'll bite on practically any absurd plot.

I've seen even MD's in Europe touting this theory. Not conservative types at all; holistic MD's doing research on Vitamin C and other non-pharma preventives and treatments for the virus.

Some of those anti-vexers mentioned in the article have been posting here on C-D, trying to raise this hysteria. Their videos and other media links are so obviously conspiracy and hysteria-driven! One put up a video, that started out saying something about the social distancing, with an image of a historical Japanese internment camp in the background, as if to imply, that that is where the situation is headed. Such obvious propaganda & scare tactics! Like, how dumb do they think we are? lol

Yeah I think this is rabble-rousers trying to find division and hysteria where there really is none.

There's a lot of ideas and rapid learning taking place. Not everyone has to agree, and not every disagreement should mean dislike or disrespect.

This is a many-faceted issue. Discussing the solution is bound to be messy. I try to find sources that aren't just trying to inflame and incite. And that's not easy these days.

Or it could be that the right has a lot of terrible people saying terrible things.

Well this is why I'm a moderate, so I can use my head and think about the situation rather than buying off on lunatic fringe theories. Just part of the thoughtful middle of the political spectrum.

Bill Gates has helped the pre-Corona economy that Trump takes credit for. He also has done more for stomping out sickness in the world than just about anyone. And he continues to "give" to the current crisis. Yet, our President feels he is somehow a danger. I give up. The current President is insane.
