Please, for the love of God, stop spreading these godawful 'documentaries'

Plandemic, I'm looking at you. I am deleting a lot of Facebook friends over this one.

I am sorry to be spamming you so much, but this is important.

Please, please unfriend, block and delete anyone spreading this Plandemic ‘film’. Don’t lower yourself to the level I did and engage with them.

I watched the first part of this utterly stupid trash-fire so you don’t have to. And these are my thoughts at 9.38am here in New Zealand.

I’ve been looking at photos from the current protest going on in Sacramento, California.

And let’s just say… people are not practicing social distancing. Reporter Mike Blount has been posting lots of photos - and the messaging from the protestors seems to be what you’d expect. Anger at the media, anger at being told so stay home, and anger at the authorities making the rules. They want the Governor to resign.

And in amongst the signs — this one, which reads:

“Do you know who Judy Mikovitz is? Then don’t tell me I need a silly mask.”

I sighed. She spelt the name wrong — it’s an S, not a Z — but Judy Mikovits is at the centre of the latest ‘documentary’ doing the rounds.

It’s being released in little bursts. I watched part one last night, so you don’t have to.

That 30 minutes of tripe has been watched by millions of people so far. And it’s even more frustrating than the QAnon documentary I wrote about yesterday, because ultimately this is going to lead to people dying.

(It’s called Plandemic because, you know, Covid 19 was all a big plan).

In the first instalment, Dr. Judy Mikovits posits that the Federal Government is behind a “plague of corruption” to make money from a Covid 19 vaccine. Who is she? Well, she’s an anxi-vaxxer and really hates Dr. Anthony Fauci. Oh, and she was arrested for stealing lab equipment:

“After Mikovits was terminated on 29 September, she wrongfully removed laboratory notebooks and kept other proprietary information on her laptop and in flash drives and in a personal e-mail account.”

In summary, the conspiracy Plandemic’s flogging is that a global cabal of billionaires created the virus in order to instil fear & panic, so they make a shit-tonne of money vaccinating (and poisoning, because vaccines) the population. I assume it’s the same billionaires who are keeping kids locked in dungeons.

The text on the film’s website pretends it’s doing what journalism should do - speak truth to power:

The plan was unfolding with diabolical precision, but the masters of the Pandemic underestimated one thing... the people. Medical professionals and every-day citizens are sharing critical information online. The slumbering masses are awake and aware that something is not right. Suddenly, our overworked citizenry has ample time to research and investigate for themselves…

When really all the ‘documentary’ is doing is presenting a bunch of slickly produced mistruths, paranoia and lies.

The video is slowly being taken down off various platforms - Vimeo and YouTube and so on. But not quickly enough. It has millions of views. References to it are all over my Facebook and Twitter feed.

YouTube is simply not keeping its commitment to minimise the spread of health misinformation. It barely kept up with the 5G bullshit - and it’s totally dropped the ball on this bullshit.

Propaganda has always used the form of documentary to do its thing: spread lies.

But recently it’s become incredibly maddening to me, because this utter bollocks spreads so fast. The internet was meant to make us smarter, but it’s making us way, way dumber.

With that mind, I made this handy guide of the Top 5 Words or Phrases to Keep an Eye Out For When Looking For Who to Block, Unfriend or Delete:

1) “Do your own research”

2) “Just be aware”

3) “Interesting”

4) “Seeking truth”

5) “Just asking questions”

I hope this list helps.

Oh, if you still have friends who believe the validity of this thing? Maybe just point this out: The guy who made it (a former model and actor) can’t even spell ‘filmmaker’ correctly.

You’re gonna get your truth bombs from this guy? Jesus.
