Pigs Fly, Wingnuts Flap

flying_pig.thumbnail.jpgThe newest swine flu, the Global Trotter, appears to be a combo of swine flu and avian flu with some human influenza thrown in for better replication, and of course the wingnuts are freaking out over this, especially because Mexico has instituted emergency measures. Yup, conspiracy theories, fears of forced quarantines, FEMA camps, enforced flu shots, Illuminati overtaking us all…Oh and fears of immigrants.

Wingers are especially frothing over an article from a Texas newspaper which lays out a dry run for a massive immunization point of delivery (POD). Officials in Guadalupe County, TX are

preparing for a May 2 dress rehearsal of a pandemic disaster at the Navarro ISD. Volunteers will set up and operate a “drive through” POD in which they will take a practice run at registering, screening and pretending to inoculate 100 volunteers so they can identify whatever problems might come up and prepare to meet them.

The same procedures with minor changes would apply to any similar emergency, such as an outbreak of smallpox or an anthrax or ricin attack

Oh and in some countries, stockpiles of Tamiflu are due to expire at the end of the year,Coincidence? Conspiracy buffs think not! Because you see, everything is a giant PLOT!

On Twitter @SuperGodiva says:

Swine Flu reported as unusual as it affects the most healthy (20-45) vs weak kids/elderly. Perfect pathogen to quell dissent.

There are also several herds of swine flu watchers Twitter including #swineflu and CDC so you can get good and worked up.

From comments on PrisonPlanet:

The false flag for Fema to declare martial law, do the massive gun confiscation and push you into a Fema Camp, for your own safety has began, a little ahead of schedule.. most of the info I had said somewhere in June or July, perhaps the people coming out to the Tea Parties was enough to excellerate the time line, and let the culling begin sooner, as opposed to later.

 But there seems to be some grave misconceptions. Like this from AboveTopSecret which seems to be a little confused about Agent Orange:

P.S. Remember Agent Orange and all the other Experimental drugs the government tested on soldiers during the gulf war and even the world wars? They are not trust able.
