5G Fears, More Towers Torched; ‘Bill Gates Behind Coronavirus’, Bio, Etc.

In addition to these claims, another is about ‘bio warfare’ and the US-China hybrid war, amid chatters of global governance as part of a new world order.

IRSHAD SALIM — A British TV host on Monday suggested there could be a link between 5G masts and the spread of the coronavirus.

Government officials in UK have sought to debunk a widely-circulated conspiracy theory suggesting the mobile network is responsible for the virus.

Despite their efforts, arsonists have torched 5G masts and targeted engineers around the country after the news spread in the fringe media.

A Dutch newspaper reported on Saturday that several cellular broadcasting towers across the Netherlands have been damaged by arson or sabotage –by opponents of a rollout of a new 5G network.

The paper reported that arsonists had left an anti-5G slogan spray-painted at the scene of one attack.

And today, Eamonn – who co-hosts the show with his wife Ruth Langsford – said he believes there could be something to the claims, The Sun reported.

He said: “What I don’t accept is mainstream media immediately slapping that down as not true when they don’t know it’s not true.

“No one should attack or damage or do anything like that but it’s very easy to say it is not true because it suits the state narrative.

British celebrities like Woody Harrelson, MIA and Amir Khan have also linked 5G internet to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Jason Gardiner and Callum Best also posted similar claims that 5G can impact the immune system, according to The Sun report.

National Medical Director of NHS England Stephen Powis has slammed the claims as “complete and utter rubbish and the worst kind of fake news”.

Another assertion circling the rounds relates to claim for preparing people for their microchipping: On Monday, Roger Stone (Trump confidante) suggested that Bill Gates may have had a hand in the creation of coronavirus so that he could plant microchips in people’s heads to know who has and has not been tested for COVID-19.

“Whether Bill Gates played some role in the creation and spread of this virus is open for vigorous debate. I have conservative friends who say it’s ridiculous and others say absolutely,” Stone told Joe Piscopo, host of the radio program “The Answer” on 970 AM, who had asked about conspiracy theories regarding the pandemic.

“He and other globalists are using it for mandatory vaccinations and microchipping people so we know if they’ve been tested. Over my dead body. Mandatory vaccinations? No way, Jose!” Stone told a fawning Piscopo, who referred to President Trump’s longtime adviser as “a legend.”

Gates has long been an outspoken advocate for preparing for a global health crisis like coronavirus.

In addition to these claims, another is about ‘bio warfare’ and the US-China hybrid war, amid chatters of global governance as part of a new world order.

Nonetheless, collateral damages are huge and ominous. As I wrote earlier, I’m going green, and out in the suburb (even a village will do) if and when the pandemic is over.
