Swine Flu Propaganda Back Then and Now

Swine Flu Propaganda Back Then

The Swine Flu Vaccination Propaganda PSAs for the Great Plague of 1976…

With the Swine Flu Shot, get a Shot of Protection

During the fear of the Great Plague of 1976, Private David Lewis was killed by influenza on February 5, 1976. After health officials disclosed a new disease called the Swine Flu killed Lewis, a $135 million government program was created to calm the public fear of a epidemic by immunizing all 220 million Americans.

In the “The Epidemic that Never Was” which was called “The Great Plague,” only young Lewis died from the Swine Flu in 1976 yet, “Americans were killed or seriously injured by the inoculation the government gave them to stave off the virus.”

According to another news source, 30 people died from the swine-flu vaccine and 500 people were affected by the shot. Forty million Americans were inoculated from Oct 12 to Dec 16, 1976 before the government program was canceled.

Swine Flu Propaganda Now:

1. What are the odds of a naturally occurring virus is capable of jumping from pigs to humans and going epidemic at the same time as President Obama visits Mexico City in the heart of the Swine Flu outbreak and Felipe Solis Olguin, allegedly infected with the same flu, drops dead after shaking the hand of President Obama?

Did someone put lipstick on a pig???

The Key to the current Swine Flu Scare?
On April 28th, 2009, President Barack Obama asked Congress to approve an additional $1.5 billion to fight the swine flu.

2. Will GlaxoSmithKline and Baxter profit from the 2009 Swine Flu Scare?

3. Has the imminent Swine Flu pandemic infected the Web and Twitter?
“Fear of contracting the potentially deadly flu is quickly spreading over Twitter, Google, and blogs across the web.”

“Twitter… has become a hotbed of unnecessary hype and misinformation about the outbreak”

Based on reading tweets (140-character messages), Twitter appears to be the key tool to propagate fear on the web as well as the Incubator of Swine Flu Misinformation.

4. Who voted for Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, the Republican Representative of Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District?

“I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.” ~Congresswoman Michele Bachmann during her interview on Pajamas TV, April 27, 2009

For the record Michele, Republican President Gerald Ford ordered a nationwide vaccination program to prevent a swine-flu epidemic on March 24, 1976.

fatpig_icon Hopefully, the government’s CDC is tracking the Swine Flu Outbreaks better than the Politicians who are talking about the Swine Flu Scare.

To save the bacon of U.S. Pork Producers, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack repeatedly called the Swine Flu virus the “H1N1 virus,” the PC (Politically Correct) Flu name.

Ironically, Surgical masks stop droplets from spreading and are unable to filter small flu particles. Respirators if used correctly are more likely to reduce flu risk according to the CDC.

  1. Sounded like Michele Bachmann was blamming Dem – what point was she even trying to make – whatever

    • Hi iahealth,

      The short clip of Michele was included to reveal that Michele did not check her facts. Although this is a short clip, Michele’s error could have been a political move or a honest error.

      Thank you for visiting and commenting.

  2. Thanks for all of the info, it helped a lot..;)

  3. Just dropped my link … must have went to moderation. Your Spanish Flu link was VERY interesting. 😉

    • Miss Moneypenny

      Speaking of the Spanish Flu, here is another interesting dilemma: Why would a former President say this?

      “I haven’t gotten a flu shot, and I don’t intend to.” – George W. Bush during the Third Bush-Kerry debate, on domestic policy, Oct. 13, 2004, in Tempe Arizona

      I know many people believe Dubya was not the brightest bulb in the oval office yet, Bush may have been performing a public act (noting that Miss MP is Not defending Bush).

      It is also interesting to note that the Spanish Flu was the last great viral epidemic in the United States – 675,000 deaths versus 34,000 deaths caused by The “Hong Kong Flu” from 1968 to 1969.

  4. Something I read …

    Another characteristic of Influenza viruses that cause great public health concern is the ability of different strains/subtypes of viruses to hybridize together. This means that these viruses can swap and merge genetic information to create a new strain/subtype of flu virus. This “hybridization” process is known as “antigenic shift”. These antigenic shifts have long been thought to occur in areas where humans live in close proximity to domestic poultry and pigs. Pigs are especially notorious for being susceptible to a wide range of different strains/subtypes of Flu viruses. The WHO sees pigs, and recent evidence also implicate humans, as a “mixing vessel” for the scrambling of genetic material from human and avian viruses, resulting in the emergence of a new form of Flu virus.

    As populations have no immunity to the new subtype, and as no existing vaccines can confer protection, antigenic shift has historically resulted in highly lethal pandemics. For this to happen, the novel subtype needs to have genes from human influenza viruses that make it readily transmissible from person to person for a sustainable period. The most notable example of this is the Great Spanish Influenza epidemic of 1918-19 that resulted in the deaths of 40-50 million people worldwide. The Flu virus causing this great tragedy is believed to derive from an antigenic shift resulting from the interactions between Avian and Human Flu Viruses”

  5. I still do not like it … seems to be a test of multi-viro’s

    I just had turkey 🙂

      Hi Speedcat,

      Hopefully, you didn’t eat a Turkey Carter Club sandwich prepared by Michele Bachmann! 😀

      In tonight’s news (Boston’s WBZ news), Swine Flew to Logan Airport because the CDC was overly concerned over a 53-year-old female passenger who complained of flu-like symptoms. United Flight 903 from Munich was diverted and isolated when it arrived at Logan Airport.

      Ironically (later in the broadcast), Jon Keller named Joe Biden his Stooge of the Week for Six-pack Joe’s Swine Flu statement,

      “I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now. It’s not that it’s going to Mexico, it’s you’re in a confined aircraft when one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft. That’s me. I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation suggesting they ride the subway.” 

      Boston WBZ’s Jon Keller names his Stooge of the Week on Keller @ Large every Friday night.

      Looks like the Pork Panic is flying everywhere…

      • Yep … I have been monitoring this closely with google alerts, and simply acting accordingly. My main concern is that the Avian DNA in this virus could become (adapt) into more of a substantial role in the illness. Predicting the outcome of any airborn flu is quite like predicting the weather. For now, I am glad that the seriousness of this outbreak has not been a major risk to me. Still – I would not be traveling to Mexico City!!

        • Miss Moneypenny

          Based on my limited research to date, the avian influenza H5N1 virus is a natural Bird virus that becomes a fungal parasite to decompose the bird’s flesh after the bird dies.

          For virus mutations to occur, the avian influenza H5N1 virus needs to be genetically altered by either human genetic engineering or perhaps, human bird on fowl bird sex.

          Since 2003, the count of human cases of H5N1 Avian Influenza is 417 with 257 deaths in a global population of 6.77 billion. The Bird Flu death rate in the U.S. is Zero versus the 36,000 Americans who die every year from seasonal common influenza virus.

          If political common sense exists then these facts appear to indicate that Barack Oporkulus should be requesting a $1.5 billion pork package to fight the common flu.

  6. Anyone who ever said …”when Pigs Fly” are going to be doing alot of odd shit because of a Swine Flew epidemic

    • Miss Moneypenny

      Hi Myles,

      I can see the current Headlines,

      “In the Pig Panic of 2009, Swine Flew and killed 13 people in the global Pig Pandemic”
      Miss Moneypenny, April 30, 2009

      In comparison, common Seasonal flu viruses kill between 250,000 and 500,000 people a year according to Reuters.

      In the United States, there has been 1 Swine Flu death versus the 13,000 Seasonal flu deaths since January 2009.
