“On 1 November 2021, Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson tweeted a warning: ‘Dear Christians: the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked’. Robinson’s tweet was soon deleted, and her Twitter account temporarily locked for repeated violations of Twitter’s COVID-19 misinformation policy (before being permanently banned on 10 November 2021).
My first thought is why was a crazy conspiracy theorist who works for Newsmax, a cable news network that spews rightwing propaganda and conspiracy theories 24/7, granted credentials to serve as a White House correspondent?
My second thought is, I’m not surprised that Robinson, an evangelical Christian, believes that the COVID vaccines contain a marker so they can be tracked by the federal government.
After all, evangelicals believe in all types of nonsense like the notion that we are living in the End Times and that Jesus will soon Rapture his believers out of this world, meet them in the air, and I guess transport them to paradise.
WWJD? Jesus would rapture the racist, judgmental, and hateful evangelicals out of this world and dump them in the Lake of Fire.
Newsmax disavowed Robinson’s claims and she is currently off the air, but she hasn’t been fired. This screwball who plays at being a journalist should have been summarily fired by Newsmax, and her White House credentials should have been revoked.
