#ExposeBillGates has been exploding on twitter since Saturday following a planned day of action arranged by alternative media organizations and activist groups.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused much speculation about the billionaire philanthropist over his support for extended lockdown measures, his huge contributions to the World Health Organization and his past comments on vaccines.
Gates recently said the world would need as many as 14 billions doses of a vaccine to stop the coronavirus. He claimed “in order to stop the pandemic, we need to make the vaccine available to almost every person on the planet.
RT reports: “The public is finally waking up. I’ve never liked this guy and if you really listen to him talk and watch his interviews you’ll know he DOESN’T have our best interest in mind,” author Peter Vooogd tweeted on Saturday. It was one of the many tweets linked to the #ExposeBillGates hashtag, which itself stemmed from a planned “day of action” — announced by author Derrick Broze last month — to expose the billionaire.
Other tweets included a video blasting Gates for his outspokenness on Covid-19 despite not being an elected official, as well as his support of extending lockdown measures across the world.
Others promised to never take any vaccine Gates has involvement with, including conservative author Michelle Malkin.
Some social media users, however, did not take the conspiracy theories seriously and instead used the hashtag to poke fun at Gates.
Though conspiracy theories about Gates are based more on conjecture than hard evidence, they have caught on with the public.
Gates’ standing in the world has only increased since the pandemic began, which likely feeds many of the conspiracy theorists untrusting of him. With the US backing out of support for the World Health Organization, he is set to become the group’s largest contributor, a fact that worries many as the Microsoft founder is a private citizen who could theoretically carry a lot of power during global situations.
