I don't really use facebook much. But someone sent me a link on there so i click it and i'm greeted with that image with the fact check warning on there. Seeing as the image just seemed to show some pretty easy to find stats about death rates for hunger and poverty, i decided to check out their fact checking.



Ok, so what's false?

Hmm a link to a cdc statement about the flu...uhh ok..



Right....so this is the article they're using to claim an image with stats about hunger and poverty is false. One about a cdc statement on the flu.



So...i'm really wondering, in what way does the article they're using to 'fact check' that meme even relate to the contents of the image they're fact checking?

I mean that's not even beginning to try there...

And i imagine there's plenty of people who wouldn't even bother clicking the link to even see why it's false. They'll just blindly listen to facebook and do what they're told.

This #'s just so blatant and so obvious it makes my head hurt to think there's so many people that oblivious out there.

It doesn't matter. They simply need the weak minded and scared to see "Mostly false" and then boom, they wont read any more into it.

These corporations employ psychiatrists for a reason, they're masterfully equipped to make the general public think a certain way, there's a very limited space for discourse in the public sphere and so the ability to manipulate at a glance is essential, it promotes intellectual laziness.

Those who don't critically think now are in some seriously bad trouble. The world is about to enter the tribulation and those who can't see, wont.

Sad times, Christ is the truth and those outside of that have eyes to see but will not see.

99.97% is a pretty ridiculous and false claim. About 98% survive, some of that 98% will never fully recover.

I'm sure at times there is a mess up in translation as the Chinese fact checkers do their job.

What is very scary is that the majority of FB users believe these warnings.

We know FB, Twitter and Google have a censorship hub they use to discuss which stories to promote, which to censor... basically how to plan the news agenda. MSM follow the same flow.

So frustrating. But take solace in the fact that a few of us do see how ridiculous it is.

Current available US numbers:

14,069,037 known cases
276,448 deaths

276,448/14,069,037 = .0196 x 100 = 1.96% which rounds up to 2%

100 - 2 = 98% of people survive.

I don't have a stat as to how many people will end up with lifelong complications from it, but I know 4 personally. They survived, but they will never fully recover.

Cases are not the same as infections. All these stats are just number porn for fanatics. Unreliable, unverifiable, number porn.

Used daily by the msm for people to jerk off to.

people with the brains to use ATS should be well above the cattle which use farcebook for news, I mean the only thing believable on farcebook is that it steals your data and sells it on. I am not going to even try and convince someone who posts to farcebook regualrly what is real, if you need to tell people what you had for tea or show off you new car/holiday/tattoo photos then I dont hold much hope of a fully functioning brain in their skulls.

Also, you realise these figures are based on deaths of anyone who tests positive for covid within a 28 day period? In some countries the requirements for registering a covid death are even less stringent.

The actual mortality rate of Covid is much much less than 1% even with the inflated figures.

Test positive for covid on November 1st. Die in a car crash on November 27th. Covid death.

Open your eyes.

Witless over in Michigan said too many people traveled for Thanksgiving so she is expecting the numbers to increase. Using it as an excuse to extend lockdowns I suspect but it seems like Super Markets are the real super spreaders. We need to shut down the food distribution in this country! We need to get to the point of Bernie Breadlines!

At any rate, I am flying in to Detroit with Ebola and a few other diseases next month just to spice things up a bit..

You can't use that number because there are many people who have had the virus without symptoms. Since we don't know how many but we do know they exist, the 1.96% is still high, no rounding up allowed.

But nothing about the number of people in big-box stores on Black Friday. Even though that number was way down, it's still far more than people who had family dinners if the people I know are any indication.

And it is on Wikipedia, so it has to be true.

So 1% of 2%...

not to mention it's a little early to say never fully recover.

While still

Less than 1% of America’s population lives in long-term care facilities, but as of November 26, 2020, this tiny fraction of the country accounts for 39% of US COVID-19 deaths.
