Bradlee Dean Thinks Ebola May Be a Hoax

I somehow managed to end up on Bradlee Dean’s email list, which is how I found out about this show on his Sons of Liberty website that asks the important question: Could Ebola be a hoax? Of course, they’re just asking questions, dontchaknow.

    The Germ Theory of Disease Deniers are having fun with Ebola.

    Those germs you don’t believe exist can and might end your life.

    Skeptics In Sierra Leone Doubt Ebola Virus Exists : Goats …

    www. npr .org/blogs/…/skeptics-in-sierra-leone-doubt-ebola-virus-exists

    Aug 6, 2014 – Many people in Sierra Leone still don’t believe Ebola really exists. In response, Ebola … They said she doesn’t have Ebola. They denied.

    It’s a common belief in West Africa. Although I suspect it is becoming less common.

    It’s also found in the USA in the usual places.

    Anything less drastic than corpses in the street — where the conspiracy fans can poke the corpses to make sure they’re not actors or mannequins — could be a hoax.

    I’ve seen one thing consistently on and off the internet about Ebola.

    It brings out the best in people. It also brings out the worst in people. Both in the USA, AFrica, and the world.

    In Guinea, a health care team surveying villages for the presence of Ebola was attacked and 8 of them were killed. I’d guess that village, if it goes Ebola positive will end up with most of them dying.

    I recall years ago Paul Kurtz challenging a psychic on her prediction that a ferry would sink, and he walked the walk by actually being on the ferry at the time in question. I’ll accept nothing less from Bradley Dean: Get thee to Liberia and fluid mixing with the supposedly infected, then report back to us. Otherwise, STFU.

    So…this is all to distract from Benghazi just like everything else that happens? I’ll admit it’s working. I haven’t thought about Benghazi for two years now.

    Bradlee Dean Thinks Ebola May Be a Hoax

    It’s only fair … Ebola thinks Bradlee Dean is a hoax.

    I equate “alternative media” with “alternative medicine”. Scams, lies, superstition and quackery.

    Could Bradlee Dean be a pervert who breaks into morgues at night because he likes to felch with cadavers? I’m just asking questions. Nobody has shown me that he doesn’t.

    Hmmmm…I actually might classify the far-right’s fearmongering about ebola being a threat to the US public as a hoax. So there is an ebola hoax going on, just not the type he thinks.

    It *is* a hoax that it spreads by direct contact.

    It’s actually being sprayed on us in those chemtrails.

    I’ve always kind of figured that the various “alternative” outlets were propaganda ploys to make their “mainstream” opposite numbers look good.

    Journalism in this nation is in a miserable state. It has been cooperated, bought, sold, and trained to direct or avert its gaze at the snap of a finger. Whatever the monied and corporate interests consider most advantageous to them. Which might off an opportunity for a tougher, more skeptical, more reality based media to step in. There have been a few, like Mother Jones. But mainly we get the parody of journalism which calls itself “alternative”.

    Similarly, as bad a the medical and pharmaceutical industries may be the “alternative” versions are far, far worse.

    eurosid@10 is a true poe: since there undoubtedly are fuckwits who believe this, it’s impossible to tell if eurosid is one of them.

    Sure, it’s a hoax. Just like malaria, West Nile fever, Lyme disease, AIDS, dysentery, bubonic plague, the flu, cholera, etc. etc. All imaginary, made up by big pharma. Or something.

    lordshipmayhem @ # 7: I equate “alternative media” with “alternative medicine”.

    Corporate medicine, with all its flaws, controls many specific problems pretty well; corporate media, with all its attractions, controls many societies pretty well.

    The linked-to radio wingnuts above are co-opting the phrase “alternative media” with the same larceny as Sarah Palin claiming “feminism”.

    For a sample of the real thing, please sample, say, Common Dreams or Alternet once in a while.

    I’ve seen everything from Ebola being a hoax, through Ebola being deliberately imported into the US, to Ebola being the weaponized means for destroying 90% of humanity as part of the bringing about of the New World Order.

    It’s very hard for the conspiracy theorists to make up their mind. Of course, once the threat of Ebola to the USA declines, they will mostly settle on this Ebola outbreak being a false flag, or a dress rehearsal for the big apocalyptic event to come.

    What is a little bizarre to me, is as much as the conspiracy sites such as Infowars like to warn of the “Problem, Reaction, Solution” conspiracy (where government hypes up the threat level in order to clamp down on everyone), they’ve been the ones screeching the loudest about how Obama is covering up how deadly Ebola is (airborne, etc.)

    The Liberty Brothers radio odio show — “Two hours!” Worse than the “Melbourne method” from Arsenic and Old Lace. (I survived because I only listened to 20 seconds of “Liberty Brothers.”)

    If Bradley Dean truly believes ebola may be a hoax, let him take a sip of Ebola Cola.
