‘Fact-checkers’ Rush to Defend Bill Gates Disturbing ‘Vaccine Depopulation’ Statement


In their obsession to stamp-out any countervailing narratives that might damage the standing of the ruling globalist establishment, the vaunted The Fact Checkers have once again scored a dramatic own-goal.

One of The Fact Checkers’ most common diversion techniques is to gaslight readers away from the factual provenance of the claim in question – in this case that is Bill Gates statement that ‘increased vaccine levels will reduce the world population’ – and instead divert them away to some relatively obscure over-the-top remark or comment made by someone else on an inconsequential social media or blog post. By appearing to ‘debunk’ someone else’s related comment online, the fact-checkers are then able to avoid addressing the actual issue.

The ‘fact check’ is then amplified by mainstream media and major news wire services, and pumped into Twitter and Facebook news feeds. Those who believe in the whole ‘fact-checker’ canard will no doubt be reassured that Bill Gates never made the statement in question, and that anyone who quotes him saying what he said must be a crazy conspiracy theorist.  

However, it’s been over 10 years since he made his dark depopulation statement and has never once denied what he said, or even tried to walk it back.

Suddenly, 11 years later, The Fact Checkers are scrambling to try and plaster over what is one of the most high-profile radical Malthusian statement.

RT International reports…

Self-proclaimed ‘fact-checkers’ have been forced to walk back some of their more forceful denials of Bill Gates’ opinions on population control in another effort to frame the philanthropist’s critics as loonies.

FactCheck.org has seemingly revised its view of Gates’ infamous 2010 TED Talk in which he declared doing a “great job” on vaccination in the developing world could bring down the population count. In a statement on Wednesday, the organization announced that while Gates had “said health care and vaccines could reduce unsustainable population growth,” his words had been taken out of context – and he had never said “3 billion people need to die.

The ‘fact-checker’ had gleefully seized upon a 2019 video featuring naturopath Robert O. Young addressing a group of judicial-cosplay conspiracy theorists known as the International Tribunal for Natural Justice, noting there was no documented evidence of Gates uttering any of the words Young was putting in his mouth – especially the “3 billion people” line.

However, most of Gates’ detractors have never accused him of outright claiming 3 billion people need to die, though many have referred to him in one form or another as a eugenics fan. The vaccine evangelist’s claim that the world’s population, standing in 2010 at 6.8 billion and “headed up to nine billion” at the time of the infamous TED Talk, could be reduced “if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services,” and the like “by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent” can itself be considered an incriminating statement – and FactCheck.org has acknowledged that he said it.

Many of the self-proclaimed ‘fact-checking’ groups have become somewhat notorious for seizing on bizarre conspiracy theories about figures like Gates and using such falsehoods to smear legitimate criticism of those figures.

Additionally, a Gates TED Talk from last year was edited post-broadcast to remove a line regarding vaccine certificates, which at the time were considered to be much too redolent of the police-state mentality for any of the democratic countries to accept. A year and a half later, lockdown-mad populations have been driven into the arms of such passport regimes and Gates’ prediction – which persists in the audio version of his talk – sounds almost restrained.
