Social media giant forced to whitewash controversial comments made by the Microsoft founder
Social media giant Twitter made a strange half-admission on Tuesday after billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates started trending on the platform.
“Bill Gates said health care and vaccines could reduce unsustainable population growth in a 2010 TED Talk, fact-checkers say,” a Twitter headline regarding the “trending” topic explained.
Twitter cites Reuters, The Associated Press, and FactCheck.org as sources confirming that during a 2010 TED Talk about reducing carbon emissions, “Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said that one of the factors contributing to high levels of carbon emissions is population growth and that better health care could help lower unsustainable population growth.”
This appears to be a startling admission, but Twitter continues to claim, “Gates was referring to the reduction of population growth, not the reduction of the population by 10 or 15%, reports Reuters.”
Twitter quotes the Associated Press in saying Gates has never advocated killing people, but fails to deny that he pushes for fewer humans to be born.
Hear Gates’ words for yourself in the infamous 2010 Ted Talk where he clearly says “new vaccines, health care and reproductive health services” could lower population growth by 10-15%.
Keep in mind, Gates’ father “was head of Planned Parenthood,” which kills millions and in turn, reduces population growth.
A 2010 Infowars article by Paul Joseph Watson touched on Gates’ mention of vaccination in regards to population reduction.
“Quite how an improvement in health care through vaccines that supposedly save lives would lead to a lowering in global population is an oxymoron, unless Gates was referring to vaccines that sterilize people, which is precisely the same method advocated in White House science advisor John P. Holdren’s 1977 textbook Ecoscience, which calls for a dictatorial ‘planetary regime’ to enforce draconian measures of population reduction via all manner of oppressive techniques, including sterilization.“
In a 2018 video, Gates tried to twist his previous remarks by claiming his efforts to provide “new medicines” and keep “children alive” are going to end up reducing population growth.
“As health improves, families choose to have less children,” he said. “And this effect is very, very dramatic. We find that in every country in the world, this is repeated. Population growth goes down as we improve health.”
After the Covid-19 pandemic, is anyone buying this?
