Screenshots of identical COVID ER tweets.
If the words of that “doctor” who “just left the ER” and has a message about getting “crushed” by the new COVID Delta variant looks familiar, it’s because you probably have seen it before.



It’s an apparent astroturfed message campaign to scare people into getting a COVID vaccine.

It’s unclear who is behind the effort, but what is clear is they have many people and perhaps even bots willing and able to cut and paste the message to issue the fearful message because we’re “getting crushed” by the COVID Delta variant, don’t you know?

Our colleagues at Twitchy report that a similar effort started on Facebook.

Where are the Cheeto-eaters in charge of fact-checking over there? They’re so much better than we are, aren’t they? They’ll let you know as soon as they can find daylight from under Dr. Fauci’s white coat.

Many people, even people who aren’t doctors or nurses but who appear to be pushing COVID fear-porn for political advantage on social media, are sending the message that they “just left the ER” and – oh my God everyone’s dying and they wish they’d gotten vaccinated – and, and …

And they just got busted.

The great COVID fear porn narrative was outed on Twitter beginning on Sunday night with a tweet showing that many people were using the exact same message.

I just left the ER.
We are officially back to getting crushed by COVID-19.
Delta Variant is running rampant and it’s MUCH more transmissible than the original virus.
99% of our ICU admits did NOT receive a vaccine.
Virtually ALL of them wish they had.

They couldn’t all have “just come from the ER” could they?

No one in the mainstream media appeared to ask that question. Lots of people had “just left the ER” all over the Twitterverse peddling the same message and the media lapped it up.

Yahoo News ran with the story of the “ER doctor” who pushed what could have been the initial talking points. The story then devolved into a screed against Governor Ron DeSantis.

Earlier this week Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Trump ally who proudly resisted lockdown efforts during the early stages of the pandemic, encouraged his residents to take the vaccine.
Despite this, Mr DeSantis has continued to oppose virus mitigation efforts, stating there will be no new lockdowns in Florida. Earlier in the year he used his executive powers to end all emergency and locally enacted coronavirus mandates restricting business.
There sure seems to be a lot of politics being played here.

Whoever they are, they have many, many like-minded friends.

Here comes the astroturfing again pic.twitter.com/JgwKr36ECR

Another heavily replicated message issued a warning that the country had to lock down till Christmas or we’ll all die.

“this is disgusting. Masks and social distancing should be in place until till minimum Christmas time at the earliest the government are clueless, the Delta variant should be taken seriously and we should all go into lock down to prevent it spreading.[sic]”

you got BTs

I note that the message had multiple grammatical issues, but managed to capitalize “Delta Varient” which is a constant for the fear-porn folks.

Another astroturfed message claimed, “Anti vaccine rhetoric is dangerous. Vaccine hesitancy and refusal threaten public health, and assault on lawmakers and others is unacceptable.”

The message included the hashtag “stop antivax violence.”

Yep, seems like an anti-First Amendment Leftist trope.

We don’t know at this point whether that last message was a joke, a 4Chan scam, or another astroturfed political message to scare people.

We do know that others, including actor Adam Baldwin, can spot a fraud when he sees one and mocked it appropriately.

“I just left the ER.
We are officially back to getting crushed by UPDOG-19.
UPDOG Variant is running rampant and it’s MUCH more transmissible than the original virus.
99% of our ICU admits did NOT receive UPDOG vaccine.
Virtually ALL of them wish they had.”

Others picked up on Baldwin’s joke about the “UPDOG-19 Variant.”

Not much. What’s up with you?

While the social media moguls pretend to be concerned with truthful messages and “fact-checking,” it appears that an obvious scam has been allowed to proliferate on Twitter.

We don’t need them to tell us it’s a scam.

What’s more troubling is that COVID can be quite serious for certain groups of people, so if this is an effort to get people to get the COVID shot, why lie?

Just imagine the sheer levels of astro-turf and agit-prop on this entire thing from start to end*. Just imagine the trillions of dollars already spent on things exactly like this.

When a group of conspirators- and that's exactly what Bill Gates and his Court Jews actually are, remember- have to go this utterly far out of their way with this level of sophistication and coercion globally in order to sell their propagandistic poison-pill, then that alone is more than enough to make anyone sit back and second-guess the true nature of this "vaccine" and the entire "virus" narrative altogether. Yet these same types charge the skeptics with the most sinister criminality themselves in reaction!

These people at the top of this conspiracy obviously do not buy their own bullshit. They understand they are deeply involved in the game of deception at the macro level.

"The message included the hashtag “stop antivax violence.”

Terror attack by an anti-vaxxer incoming in 3, 2, 1...
Oh boy, talk about the perfect hoax. All you need is a Vegas-tier shooting by an AR-toting, Trump supporting anti-vaxxer. Forget killing 2 birds with one stone, this would be like be shooting a flock of carrier pigeons with a punt gun.

Your posts always remind me of bumbling American (creator of spic-nig cycle meme) from MPC.

How long can the PTB keep the lid on this vax bullshit? It should have blown all to hell long before now. Even idiots are going to start to realize they've been bamboozled eventually. The only thing that keeps it alive is censorship. Censorship doesn't work forever, eventually reality steps in and takes over.

Eventually bodies will start dropping and one will not be able to ignore them.

I see your point. And I agree. But I will just add here that the mass-censorship like we're seeing now days throughout the Western world has simply never existed prior to now really. This is a whole new can of worms in my opinion from all the different versions of nationalistic or religious or academic censorships which existed in the past. This censorship is near-total, supra-national, and it is facilitated not just by the State alone but by the State in conjunction with or dictating to all these private monopolistic entities or monsters like Google and Facebook and the rest of the tyrants and sycophants in Silicon Valley.

I think we need to go back to a mode and culture of physical books and libraries in some sense, because as long as things remain strictly digital we run the risk of being isolated to one medium of exchange of our ideas, and this can then much easier be targeted by our enemies as we're now seeing today in a narrow way albeit a way that is still extremely powerful, aggressive, and ubiquitous in nature. I actually don't even know what would be best to do to counter this Censorship Regime, but I'm just spit-balling here with the above idea. I just know they've managed to isolate us on small independent forums and platforms like ours here at Gamer Uprising, and with that we are not readily able to introduce our ideas as much as we'd like into circles that are adjacent to us or that are around people who may be fellow-travelers or something in multiple ways. And so I worry that we have plateaued in terms of reaching a broader audience.

I just can't even anymore, my dude.
It’s all getting so stupid and faggotty I’m about to lose my hecking mind. Gaslighting really takes its toll bros…I grew up in a household with a single mom who was borderline. This shit is a repeat of my childhood but it’s everyone now rather than just one crazy woman.

It's probably a subject that we actually do not even talk about enough in my opinion.

Yeah the gaslighting is probably worse than the black-pilling by itself, because with just black-pilling the worst that can happen is that you get a little sad, angry, or depressed maybe. But the gaslighting for prolonged periods of time and especially on certain targeted subjects can actually make one think over the long haul that he or she is going insane.
