The authors of the program “Man and the Law,” which aired on the Russian Channel One, devoted a 16-minute story entitled “The Trojan Horse of the World Pandemic,” dedicated to the role of Microsoft founder Bill Gates in spreading the coronavirus worldwide. The creators of the program retold the prevalent online unconfirmed conspiracy theories, which say that Gates wants to destroy part of humanity. The fragment is published on the website of the First channel.
The presenter explained that he was ready to seriously talk about conspiracy theory, since this is “terribly stunning news”. The plot began with a story about Event 201, a training exercise that examined the impact of a pandemic on the world’s population and the global economy. They were held by Johns Hopkins University on October 18, 2019 with the participation of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum. In a commentary on the program, blogger Vlad Kopylkov noted that Event 201 is “one-on-one of what is happening today” due to the spread of the coronavirus.
Throughout the story, a program correspondent regularly spoke out in support of those who supported conspiracy theories regarding Gates. In particular, she spoke about Gates’s measures to vaccinate residents of African and Asian countries against various diseases and the subsequent side effects, including deaths.
“Here you have the good Dr. Death Bill Gates. It turns out that the billionaire sponsors WHO (World Health Organization) in order to reduce the population of the planet, ”said the voiceover.
The plot also featured a speech by the founder of Microsoft in 2010, in which he points out that the development of vaccination, the health system and maternity centers will reduce population growth by 10-15 percent. “Both that, and another smacks of, roughly speaking, genocide”, – the correspondent counted. She also noted that the “Gates advocates” launched a media campaign, insisting that “he was misunderstood.”
In the end of the video, viewers are invited to dream up about the world with the vaccines that Gates is investing in and give their opinion about the “digital slavery” that the entrepreneur allegedly wants. If we develop the theory further, says the correspondent of the Russian TV channel”, then the next step of the “shadow government” is to chip humanity. Chipping, according to the author of the plot, will allow you to disconnect objectionable people from the system and leave them without a livelihood. Among the supporters of this theory there are famous people, the correspondent continues. An example is the post of former tennis player Marat Safin .
In conclusion, the journalist explained that the role of Gates is only “one of the versions”, and the conspiracy theory can be “specially promoted by someone”.
The theory of the role of Gates is popular from the very beginning of the spread of the new virus. For the first time, the Chinese authorities began to report the disease, cases were recorded in Wuhan. Soon the disease spread throughout the territory of the PRC, and then in other countries of the world. However, conspiracy theories appear that the coronavirus is somehow connected with the creator of Microsoft Corporation. According to one of them, coronavirus was allegedly patented by the Pirbright Institute, which is partially funded by the Gates Foundation.
