Louis Farrakhan, the controversial leader of the African-American political activist organization Nation of Islam, spread conspiracy theories about the Covid-19 vaccine during the group’s annual convention over the weekend, yet did not face any censorship from social media companies where videos of his remarks can still be seen.
His remarks: Speaking at the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day, Farrakhan, 87, falsely claimed the vaccine has led to the deaths of more than 900 people.
“By rushing so fast to get something out, bypassing normal steps in a true vaccine, now God is going to turn your vaccine into death in a hurry,” Farrakhan said at the end of the virtual convention.
“It is death itself, created by what you call ‘Warp Speed,’” he added, referring to the U.S. government’s Operation Warp Speed operation that developed two Covid-19 vaccines in record time.
Farrakhan also targeted Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, and called the Covid-19 vaccine a “vial of death.”
Earlier last year, Farrakhan baselessly accused Fauci and billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates of consorting to “depopulate the Earth” through a coronavirus vaccine.
“They’re making money now, plotting to give seven billion, five-hundred million people a vaccination. Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates and Melinda — you want to depopulate the Earth,” Farrakhan said in July 2020, according to the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross.
During the Nation of Islam’s convention Saturday, minister Ava Muhammad made similar remarks about the vaccine, claiming the U.S. government is using the vaccines for population control.
“The overarching goal is to cull the population of our planet by 2-3 billion,” said Muhammad.
“Why? Because white people see their numbers going down, and the numbers of indigenous people, black, red and brown, going up,” she continued. “In this climate, what can we expect from a vaccine unlike anything previously made?”
“Fifty-eight percent of the deaths with the Pfizer vaccine; 41% from the Moderna vaccine,” Muhammed said
Big Tech’s response: A tweet the Nation of Islam posted with a link to the convention is still up on Twitter, despite leading to false claims about Covid-19 vaccines.
Videos of the convention were also shared on Facebook and YouTube.
All three companies recently implemented additional measures to combat misinformation related to Covid-19 and vaccinations, yet none of them took any action to censor the videos and posts of the convention.
Furthermore, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have all taken immediate action to censor or remove posts from former President Donald Trump and other conservatives about vaccinations, Covid-19, and the presidential election they deemed misleading or false.
