One of those leaders was Gerard Batten. And what he is peddling right now explains much of why UKIP fell so far and so fast, and why Oberscheissenführer Farage felt it necessary to invent the Brexit Party in order to continue his ride on the European Parliament gravy train, something to which he had become accustomed over the years.
Batten is anti-lockdown. “The Churches should resist Lockdown by opening up. They can cite Clause 63 of Magna Carta. They should read Archbishop Vigano’s letter from the pulpit. Look around at how our way of life is being destroyed by fear of a bug with a 99.8% recovery rate”. Clause 63 of Magna Carta no longer holds. So maybe she did die in vain.
He is also paranoid: seeing several papers across the USA reporting President-Elect Joe Biden’s “Time to heal” soundbite, he wibbled “Do you ever get the feeling that the MSM is controlled from above?” Who is controlling it then? As if you need to ask.
“If we move into the world envisioned for us by the Globalists then the scientists will follow the same path they did in the Soviet Union & all communist countries. Their job will be to uphold the state orthodoxy. If they dissent they will lose their jobs, & then their freedom”. Globalists! I wonder what religion and/or ethnicity that would involve.
He’s also a sucker for Fake News, Retweeting an item from the Buffalo Chronicle headlined “How a Philly mob boss stole the election” and commenting “Well it’s believable, seeing how the Mafia got Kennedy elected in 1960 on a very narrow margin”. The Mafia didn’t, and the Buffalo Chronicle is a known Fake News site. And then comes the V-Word.
Yes, it’s Vaccines. And Adolf von Batten is not happy about them. He begins merely grumpy, observing “‘Hundreds of NHS staff form anti-vax group and label new Covid jabs “poison” - Daily Star’ … Being labelled ‘anti-vax’ for being against the Virus vax is like being called ‘anti-water’ for not wanting to drown. But we live in a world of lies now”.
And he’s telling a lot of them. Combine that with the paranoia, and the Moderna vaccine becoming available in the New Year, and what do you get? “Moderna have never produced a vaccine before. They are engaged in research into ‘transhumanism’ & how artificial intelligence can be incorporated into human beings. Klaus Schwabe, who Hancock wants to be in partnership, with says he wants to change what it means to be human”.
Yes, you get the full hatstand. Plus a doubling down: quote Tweeting Battersea bedroom dweller Paul Watson, he warned “There you are it’s spelled out for us. Dr Strangelove wannabe of the World Economic Forum has decreed we have to be ‘fused’ with technology. And the Vaccine is being made by Moderna, which has never created a vaccine before but is involved with transhumanism. Feeling safe?”
Gerard Batten may not yet be totally wacko. But you can see it from there.
