Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg publicly said the platform is trying to work with Joe Biden on a joint Facebook-Biden administration push for Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
During a livestream interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Facebook founder mentioned a “push around authoritative information on vaccines,” though he did not elaborate on what that would entail.
“You and the rest of the government have an important job ahead,” Zuckerberg told Fauci during the interview.
“I know our team at Facebook has already reached out to the incoming administration to help with the COVID response in any way that we can,” continued Zuckerberg. “I’m sure there will be a few important things that we can do together.”
“We’re already planning a push around authoritative information on vaccines,” he added before the discussion turned to other topics.
As the Financial Times has recently reported, Facebook plans a strong push to encourage its users to get the COVID-19 vaccine and to share content related to the Paris Climate Agreement.
Back in October, Facebook announced that it would ban ads on its platform that discourage vaccinations and run an information campaign encouraging users to get flu shots.
The news of Facebook’s prospective partnership with the Biden team comes as Britain on Wednesday became the first country to approve a COVID-19 vaccine for general use, announcing a rollout of Pfizer-BioNTech’s product next week.
Health secretary Matt Hancock said that, beginning with care home residents and health and care staff, Britain’s state-run National Health Service will start with 800,000 doses “early next week.” That will be increased to “millions” of inoculations by the end of the year.
“Help is on its way,” he told BBC radio.
In the U.K., an army “information warfare” united has been tasked with combating supposed “anti-vaccine disinformation”
Breitbart News notes:
The Defence Cultural Specialist Unit (DCSU) of the army’s 77th Brigade was founded in 2010 as a part of the UK’s efforts to combat radical Islamic propaganda during the war in Afghanistan. The unit specialises in “building an understanding of the physical, virtual and cognitive behaviours of audiences, actors and adversaries.”
Leaked documents that were reported on by The Times reveal that the secretive unit, which previously targetted al-Qaeda and the Taliban, has been tasking soldiers with monitoring the internet for coronavirus ‘propaganda’ as well as the effects it is supposedly having on the minds of the British public.…
A spokesman from the Cabinet Office said: “As we edge closer to a vaccine we continue to work closely with social media companies and other organisations to anticipate and mitigate any emerging anti-vax narratives and promote authoritative sources of information.”
The political establishment has consistently tried to convince the public that mass vaccination is needed for life to return to normal for the billions of people on earth who are tired of having their businesses shut down and of being isolated in their homes.
“If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021 — and perhaps even into the next year — before we start having some semblances of normality,” said Fauci in an interview with Australia’s University of Melbourne.
Fauci also said there would be a “core of people” who would never take a vaccine and that it would be “problematic” if up to 50 percent of the American population refused to receive it.
As The New American has highlighted before, one of the biggest advocates of vaccines amid the coronavirus “pandemic” has been Microsoft founder Bill Gates, a proponent of population control.
Speaking at a TED conference in 2010 on the subject of cutting carbon emissions to prevent global warming, Bill Gates pointed to population control as one area where an impact could be made. Among other things, he singled out vaccination as having a role in population control.
“First we’ve got population,” Gates began. “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”
Gates has floated the idea of COVID-19 IDs (which the U.K. is already adopting in the form of COVID-19 passports) and is funding both an under-the-skin vaccine history device that can be read with infrared-equipped smartphones and a remote-controlled contraceptive microchip to go under women’s skin.
