HOAX – ‘Ebola Vaccinations to Contain RFID Chips’

by Brett M. Christensen

Outline

Circulating report claims that the US government has hatched a nefarious scheme to secretly implant RFID chips in citizens by hiding the chips in Ebola vaccinations.

Brief Analysis

The claims are nonsense. The report is a work of fiction disguised as news and published by the fake-news website National Report. The fake report builds on long-running conspiracy theories that falsely claim that various governments are set to introduce mandatory microchipping of citizens. National Report considers itself satirical and nothing published on the site should be taken seriously.

Example

CDC Whistleblower Exposes Ebola Vaccinations Containing RFID Chips

A CDC whistleblower has recently gone on record to expose nefarious government plans which would use the impending US Ebola pandemic as an opportunity to implant RFID technology in American citizens.

Ebola Vaccination Hoax

 

Detailed Analysis

According to a story currently making its way around the Internet, a CDC whistleblower has revealed secret government plans to implant RFID tracking chips in American citizens.

The report claims that the chips will be hidden inside disposable syringes that will be used to vaccinate citizens against the deadly Ebola virus. Supposedly, 200,000 of the chip-laden Ebola syringes will be issued to households by December 1st and citizens will also be able to get the vaccine from local drug stores.

Thus, suggests the story, a great many US citizens will be implanted with the hidden RFID chips, thereby allowing the government to identify, separate and control its people from afar.
But, just like the seemingly endless series of similar conspiracy theory rumours that have gone before, the claims in the story are utter nonsense. No such CDC whistleblower has come forward, nor are there any credible reports that support the claims in any way.

The story is a work of fiction published by the fake-news website National Report. The site, which apparently considers itself satirical, presents its fictional material as seemingly legitimate news reports. And, it does not display any clear disclaimer that alerts its readers that stories on the site are fiction.

Thus, many people tend to mistake National Report stories as real news and are apt to share them with their friends via social media. Unfortunately, many of the site’s fake stories go viral, spreading misinformation and raising angst and fear as they travel.

In fact, an earlier viral report from the same website falsely claimed that one in three Americans had already been secretly implanted with RFID chips during dental work.

National Report and similar fake-news sites now churn out an endless stream of nonsensical articles disguised as news. While good satire is both amusing and important, most of the material published by these pseudo-satire websites is not deserving of a satire tag.

It is thus important to verify any news stories that come your way before you share them. Searching an online news portal will usually reveal if a circulating report is true.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
