A right-wing talk show host and anti-vaxxer has come up with a conspiracy theory that suggests the government is laying eggs in people using Covid-19 vaccines that develop into synthetic parasites and grow inside the human body. .
In a video on TrueNews, a far-right Christian video streaming platform, Rick Wills called vaccines a “global coup by the worst of people” to control the world.
Mr Wills said: “They’re laying eggs in people’s bodies. If you haven’t seen yesterday’s TruNews, you need to watch this. It’s an egg that turns into a synthetic parasite and goes inside your body.” It grows. It’s like a science-fiction nightmare, and it’s happening before us.”
Right Wing Watch, a project that monitors and exposes right-wing propaganda news, flagged the video on Wednesday.
Mr Wills, who is also a preacher at a Florida church, has openly advocated for anti-vaccine propaganda. He was admitted to the hospital in June after contracting the coronavirus. He became infected only a few weeks after he had said he would not take any of the available vaccines because they were being used to “massacre”.
He also said that vaccines will wipe out “stupid people”.
Vaccine hesitation and misinformation continue to dominate the US, and vaccination misinformation has plagued America’s fight against the disease.
Earlier this week, outgoing National Institutes of Health head Dr Frances Collins blamed misinformation for thousands of Covid-19 deaths every week in the US.
Mr Wills has used the TrueNews platform to advance conspiracy theories and forward racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic content.
In 2019, he said that a “Jewish cabal” was attempting to impeach then-President Donald Trump, Times of Israel informed of.
