Note from Vaxman (Oct 31, 2021): We have a special guest blogger on this HALLOWEEN DAY. Please welcome Grim the Reaper Man (username: ReaperMan), who is a soul collector at Deadman, inc.
As Vaxman mentioned, I'm a Grim Reaper for Deadman, inc. (symbol DNR). I collect the souls of the dead and deliver them to our holding facility for processing. I was recently reassigned to collect the souls of those in the anti-vaxxer MLM division, which as you know grew significantly in Q3 and is doing quite well so far in Q4. The pandemic as a whole has been a real boon to the industry, as it was executed flawlessly in 2020. However, sometimes some incredible Science steps in and throws us a curveball, which forces us to regroup and rethink some of our tactics. Who could have predicted that such effective vaccines would be made and distributed so quickly? It was looking really bad in Q1 and Q2 of this year, but thankfully the current anti-vaccine MLM Facebook marketing campaign saved our 2021!
Now, as you can imagine, collecting souls can be quite tedious, monotonous, and frustrating at times. There is a lot of downtime where you just sit around waiting with nothing to do. At the same time, depending on the case, you have to put up with all of these "prayer warriors" who are praying for us to fail. That said, every once in a while I get assigned someone who is a real joy to collect. And in this case, I was lucky enough to draw Charles Robinson II.
As you can see from his shirt, Charles is a fan of the work that we do at Deadman, inc. With such an attitude, it's no wonder that Charles was sensational at pushing our messages throughout his Facebook network. There is no doubt he picked up some customers for us along the way. In this post, we'll point out where Charles excelled in his spread of disinformation.
First, let's get a statement of purpose from Charles (#FuckAroundAndFindOut):
Charles pushed our messages but managed to add his own personal touch to our memes by using black and white versions.
Great, here he's recruiting "both sides":
Throwing doubt on the FDA (quite effective):
He's using social pressure to push the idea that social pressure can force one to conform, thereby getting people to conform to his ideas (brilliant!):
Pushing the idea that facts are themselves the enemy of truth:
Playing the victim as a conspiracy theorist:
Comparing the public health measures to the Holocaust treatment of jews. Bold move on Charles' part. No doubt this was effective.
We're trying to get Ron Paul on our Board of Directors:
Pointing out anti-vaxxers is exactly like the Salem Witch Trials. Amazing.
Now we're getting somewhere! Just make it all confusing and people will give up on trusting experts and scientists:
Take the George Orwell 1984 hill!
Convince others to take up arms before telling someone your vaccine status:
Put a bunch of stuff no one can read together and tell people what you want them to get from it:
Recruiting some fat people!
Well, Charles caught COVID and ended up in the hospital:
He died from COVID:
And honestly, I've never been more proud to be a Grim Reaper. Mary Elizabeth shared a poem in appreciation of my work:
