Report: Pentagon Ran Secret Anti-Vax Psyop During COVID

'Social media executives warned the new administration that the Pentagon had been trafficking in COVID misinformation...'

(Ken Silva, Headline USA) As an untold number of Americans were being deplatformed and censored over their dissent to COVID-19 medical tyranny, the Pentagon was running its own secret anti-vaccine campaign on the U.S. taxpayer dime, according to a new report from Reuters.

Reuters reported Friday that the Pentagon’s psyop was largely aimed at Filipinos due to fears that China’s influence was growing in the Philippines. The psyop was aimed at convincing people not to take China’s vaccine.

“Through phony internet accounts meant to impersonate Filipinos, the military’s propaganda efforts morphed into an anti-vax campaign,” Reuters reported. “Social media posts decried the quality of face masks, test kits and the first vaccine that would become available in the Philippines – China’s Sinovac inoculation.”

Reuters reportedly identified at least 300 Twitter accounts from the summer of 2020 that used the slogan #Chinaangvirus. The accounts were taken down after Reuters contacted Twitter.

“COVID came from China and the VACCINE also came from China, don’t trust China!” said one tweet, according to Reuters. The words were next to a photo of a syringe beside a Chinese flag and a soaring chart of infections. Another post read: “From China – PPE, Face Mask, Vaccine: FAKE. But the Coronavirus is real.”

According to Reuters, the Defense Department’s anti-vax effort began in the spring of 2020 and expanded beyond Southeast Asia before it was terminated in mid-2021.

“The military program started under former President Donald Trump and continued months into Joe Biden’s presidency, Reuters found – even after alarmed social media executives warned the new administration that the Pentagon had been trafficking in COVID misinformation,” Reuters reported.

“The Biden White House issued an edict in spring 2021 banning the anti-vax effort, which also disparaged vaccines produced by other rivals, and the Pentagon initiated an internal review.”

Neither the Biden nor the Trump campaigns responded to media inquiries about the matter.

A Pentagon spokeswoman reportedly said the U.S. military “uses a variety of platforms, including social media, to counter those malign influence attacks aimed at the U.S., allies, and partners.” She also told Reuters that China had started a “disinformation campaign to falsely blame the United States for the spread of COVID-19.”
