Christian radio host Frank Sontag voiced a bizarre conspiracy on May 4 how a New York Times accurate report of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) document was somehow part of a “global domination” plan.
The New York Times accurately reported that an internal CDC document said there could be many as 3,000 deaths per day from coronavirus virus by June, and more than of 175,000 new cases of Covid-19 each day.
The CDC document is supported by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington position: “Rising mobility in most U.S. states as well as the easing of social distancing measures expected in 31 states by May 11, indicating that growing contacts among people will promote transmission of the coronavirus.”
The CDC document contradicts President Donald Trump’s rosey promise on March 29 for June: “We can expect that, by June 1st, we will be well on our way to recovery. We think, by June 1st, a lot of great things will be happening.”
Sontag — who mocked people on March 10 for being afraid of the deadly virus — told his KKLA audience in Los Angeles about his discovery of this “global domination” scheme:
There’s a large part of me that it just kinda hit me: “Frank are you that naive? There are people who will do everything they can to keep things the way they are or to undermine the economy because they hate this current president.”
Now, here’s a story, really? “The New York Times has uncovered internal documents?” So my first thought was, “That’s gonna last probably an hour or two before word gets out.”
Lo and behold, “Trump administration refutes New York Times report of internal document’s projecting doubling of COVID-19 rate.” They basically says it’s alot of nonsense. I won’t even use the term “fake news.”
White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere simply said the CDC document is “not a White House document” and hadn’t been presented to the coronavirus task force.
Sontag continued on with his rant:
People will read this! People will believe it! Right? Now, do I know what is to come, I don’t. Obviously, nobody knows what is to come. But as I began with my struggle and my impulse to be angry and even sin right now, I’m so tired of ignorance and indifference…
After telling a short story about a rabbi, Sontag turned to his conspiracy theory:
There are powers that be that want to undermine God, and undermine religious freedom that just may worship money above all humanity. And they would have a vested interest in, well, global domination, that’s as far as I’m going there.
