It’s difficult to imagine these people exist, but unfortunately, they are all too real.
Much like certain US Senators apparently, the growing white supremacist movement in the United States has seen opportunity in the novel coronavirus pandemic. But instead of a way to profit, these absolute monsters see an untraceable weapon.
The FBI has gathered intelligence warning them of the intention among racist extremist groups to weaponize COVID-19 by purposely infecting Jews, people of color, and members of law enforcement.
According to an alert obtained by ABC News, the FBI’s New York office is warning local authorities that “members of extremist groups are encouraging one another to spread the virus, if contracted, through bodily fluids and personal interactions.”
Police were told white supremacist groups have suggested to members who were unlucky enough to test positive for the virus to collect bodily fluids and use spray bottles on cops in the street. The infected were also allegedly directed to spread the virus purposely to Jewish communities by visiting “any place they may be congregated, to include markets, political offices, businesses and places of worship.”
How disgusting can you get! We’re sitting here afraid of accidental spreading of a pandemic, and these idiot Neo-Nazis are allegedly trying to do it on purpose as some kind of cowardly attempt at genocide. Ugh. The first rumblings of these plans seem to come from back in February, before physical distancing was being encouraged so strongly. So if you needed another reason to keep to yourself, THIS IS IT!
The intel apparently stems from investigators monitoring communications on an app called Telegram, which is apparently popular with alleged Neo-Nazis. (We’re surprised they don’t just use Twitter, it’s not like they ever get banned… just sayin’.)
Per MSN, an intelligence brief written by the Federal Protection Service for the week of February 17-24 warns:
“Violent extremists continue to make bioterrorism a popular topic among themselves… White Racially Motivated Violent Extremists have recently commented on the coronavirus stating that it is an ‘OBLIGATION’ to spread it should any of them contract the virus.”
In addition to spray bottles, there were subtler, scarier methods reportedly suggested, including “saliva on door handles,” spitting on elevator buttons, and just generally spending time in non-white neighborhoods and letting the virus spread itself. Like we said, it’s difficult to believe these people actually exist, but in the past couple of years it’s also become impossible to deny.
Stay safe out there, everyone! And STAY HOME! It’s your best defense against coronavirus no matter how it’s spread.
