In a 2015 speech, Bill Gates warned that the greatest risk to humanity was not nuclear war but an infectious virus that could threaten the lives of millions of people.
That speech has resurfaced in recent weeks with 25 million new views on YouTube — but not in the way that Mr. Gates probably intended. Anti-vaccinators, members of the group QAnon and right-wing pundits have instead seized on the video as evidence that one of the world’s richest men planned to use a pandemic to wrest control of the global health system.
It seems that (R-SC) Lindsey Graham has a different idea from his right-wing supporters.
He made a statement on the news that the United States will halt funding to the World Health Organization (WHO), according to a release.
But almost no one reported about his huge praise on Bill Gates!
“Cutting off funding at this time is the right move. This is a critical time for worldwide public health and we cannot afford China apologists running the WHO. I support a suspension of funding by the United States until there is new leadership at the WHO.
“I have a lot of respect for Bill Gates and his work in the public health arena. The Gates Foundation, under Bill and Melinda’s leadership, has a reputation for investing in programs which are well-run and produce results. However, Bill Gates’ decision to defend the performance of the WHO during the coronavirus crisis and current WHO leadership ignores overwhelming evidence of China bias and incompetence.
“If someone like Bill Gates were in charge of the WHO I would gladly support increased funding. But I have lost all confidence in the current WHO leadership and capabilities.
“The world needs a competent WHO. But the days of throwing money at an incompetent organization are over under President Trump’s leadership.”
This is why the average American NEED TO WISEN UP! It is not a left or right-wing issue anymore, its We, the people, against tyrannical governments, industries, and elites that are bent on killing us. We have to band together and FIGHT the corrupt and nefarious system that is our government even if we have to go against our own party affiliates.
