NC Tea Party Candidate Goes Full Alex Jones

I’ve already introduced my readers to Greg Brannon, the Tea Party candidate for the Senate from North Carolina. Brannon is a junior Alex Jones, finding conspiracies in everything. Agenda 21, school shootings (all false flag operations, of course) and now even vaccines. It’s one big global conspiracy.

Referencing a non-binding U.N. sustainable development plan that’s long been a bugaboo of the conspiracy-addled political fringe, Brannon railed against Agenda 21, Obamacare, the National Defense Authorization Act and the global conspiracy to make him sick through vaccinations.

“This scam of Agenda 21, this scam of humans are poisoning the earth, is a scam,” Brannon explained. “They are using that to control you, to control me, to control life.”

“That’s why Obamacare, Agenda 21, NDAA, all these things are the collective over the individual,” Brannon continued. “The spirit of 1776 must be rebirthed,” he argued, “because we are living in the Orwellian 1984.”

While Brannon’s focus was on the big picture, the worldwide conspiracies that threaten us all, the one-time doctor also spent a bit of the interview explaining why he’s a big vaccination skeptic.

“I remember vividly,” he began, “I was a resident-in-training and I got my flu vaccine like I always did … three weeks later, I had a high fever … bottom-line, I was bleeding blood, and I got a kidney disease I still have today.” Brannon said he no longer gets a flu vaccine every year.

“I can’t say what I have came from that,” Brannon went on, “there’s a lot of correlation that does in a lot of the literature I’ve done.”

I have no idea what that last sentence could possibly mean. I’m not sure they’re in English at all.

    Brannon said he no longer gets a flu vaccine every year.

    This presumably is why he is no longer allowed to work in hospitals due to the increased infection risk and has to seek an alternative career in politics.

    “This scam of Agenda 21, this scam of humans are poisoning the earth, is a scam,” Brannon explained.

    So, if a scam is a scam, does that mean that it’s not a scam? Good thing Brannon explained for us.

    This is serious business. I think they need to make sure the next budget has a provision defunding ACORN.

    “This scam of Agenda 21, this scam of humans are poisoning the earth, is a scam,” Brannon explained.

    Cthulhu, doesn’t this guy read the newspapers.

    1. In his own state a few weeks ago, Duke Power’s coal ash pond failed, and poisoned a river leading into a reservoir. Who knows how long that will take to clean up and how much it will cost?

    The scam is that Duke Power didn’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about their waste storage facility and North Carolina is going to pay to clean it up.

    2. Nearby in another Tea Pary area, Freedom Chemical’s storage tank failed and dumped an organic chemical into the water supply of much of West Virginia. People are still wondering if the water is safe to drink and much of the water supply in West Virginia is suspect anyway.

    bottom-line, I was bleeding blood

    That seem like a pretty unremarkable choice for a substance to be bleeding, actually. Most anything else would have been more surprising.

  • smrnda

    This guy became a doctor? I think that’s a frightening as his belief in conspiracy theories. I mean, the rant sounds like something a scientifically illiterate moron would say – this guy actually got through medical school and *treated patients?*

  • dugglebogey

    For some reason, I can’t read his quotes without slurring the words like they are coming from a drunk.

    Is it just me?

    “I was a resident-in-training and I got my flu vaccine like I always did … three weeks later, I had a high fever … bottom-line, I was bleeding blood, and I got a kidney disease I still have today.”

    Well, I’m sorry he has chronic kidney disease.

    But FFS, correlation isn’t causation.

    This sounds exactly like a bacterial infection leading to glomerulonephritis and he probably knows what it was.

    It’s amazing some of the places you see Agenda 21 paranoia show up. I came across a piece of anti-Agenda 21 art on Deviantart of all places

    Look, everybody knows that Skull and Bones is behind Agenda 21.

    “bottom-line, I was bleeding blood,”

    Wonder what he would bleed now?

    Thanks goodness some people are still willing to stand up for what is good and right and true. Not this guy. This guy’s an idiot.

    “I was a resident-in-training and I got my flu vaccine like I always did … three weeks later, I had a high fever … bottom-line, I was bleeding blood, and I got a kidney disease I still have today.”

    And obvious, nothing else he was exposed to in that three-week period could also have contributed to his vague, undefined “kidney disease.”

  • dingojack

    Are you sure kidney disease is your only problem Greg? Did you check for brain damage, due to bacteriological meningitis for example?

    I only ask because of the following quote of yours:

    ““I can’t say what I have came from that, there’s a lot of correlation that does in a lot of the literature I’ve done.”

    Do you often have difficulty putting together coherent sentences?

    Agenda 21 is one of my absolute favorite wingnut memes. The idea is that 22 years ago, the governments of the world all got together and agreed on a sinister plot to wipe out 85% of the world’s population, and bring the remainder under the boot heel of a communist totalitarian world government. In the generation since then, this has manifested itself in the form of:

    – Over a billion more people;

    – Electric buses;

    – Bike paths;

    – Light rail.

  • DaveL

    I can’t say what I have came from that, there’s a lot of correlation that does in a lot of the literature I’ve done.

    I have to admit, I have trouble saying that, too. I find myself fighting the urge to put words together such that they make some kind of sense.

    “If you’ve cut yourself at all in the course of these tests, you might have noticed that your blood is pure gasoline. That’s normal. We’ve been shooting you with an invisible laser that’s supposed to turn blood into gasoline, so all that means is it’s working.”
