This is not the first time that I have heard this.
That HIV, the virus that causes AIDS... aka the scourge of our lifetime...has been theorized as a bioweapon designed and released by the New World Order or other Powers That Be. The aim of this being twofold: 1) Reduce an overpopulated world by killing off "undesirables," such as homosexuals, Africans, drug users, prostitutes, and so forth. Of course there would be others killed by HIV, but they are viewed as "collateral damage" and unavoidable. 2) More profit for the medical industry. Treating symptoms makes far more money that curing a disease.
The kind of paranoid delusions from a conspiracy theorist, lurking somewhere on a message board in a dark corner of the Internet? Or perhaps Jesse Ventura's house? Most of it, yes, but it also is a view supported by a Nobel Peace laureate.
Wangari Maathai, a Kenyan ecologist who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004, claimed HIV was "deliberately created." Here are few of her more thought provoking, not to mention unsettling, quotes from her:
"Some say that AIDS came from the monkeys, and I doubt that because we have been living with monkeys (since) time immemorial."
"Why has there been so much secrecy about AIDS? When you ask where did the virus come from, it raises a lot of flags. That makes me suspicious... In fact it (the HIV virus) is created by a scientist for biological warfare."
Pretty serious accusations...and ones that Ms. Maathai does not offer evidence for (as far as I know) nor does she name just who "a scientist" refers to. She may not know, but it sounds as if she does...or at least has a suspect. Like I said, pretty serious accusations. I have seen the affects of HIV/AIDS on individuals, communities, and entire nations. I have witnessed it firsthand in Haiti and right here in the Chicago area. Though I have not seen it in person, the ravages of AIDS across the continent of humanity are an affront to any compassionate human being. It is a terrible way to die and it oftentimes makes those living with the disease feel alone and uncared for. If this is indeed a man-made bioweapon of a sort, its perpetrators should face charges of "crimes against all humanity" and then we'll decide whether or not to put them to death.
It is unthinkable that this could be the case but they don't hand out Nobel Peace Prizes in boxes of Fruity Pebbles, no matter what Republicans have to say in regard to Obama's win. Ms. Maathai may sound paranoid, but that doesn't mean she's wrong. She could be on to something. While a few researchers claim to have found AIDS-related cases as far back as the 1930s, the virus really did seem to just pop up out of nowhere in around 1980. What gives?
I'm not necessarily throwing in on Maathai's side on this one...going to repeat that one more time for David...I'm not necessarily throwing in on Maathai's side on this one, but it sure makes you think. Like anything else in America, follow the money. Just who is profiting from the disease?
Humans have committed many other barbaric acts. Would you put this one past us?
