A year ago at this time, conservative and libertarian conspiracy websites like News With Views and Before It’s News were publishing articles that boldly made predictions that on March 23 2013, the presidential administration of Barack Obama would start requiring the implantation of microchips into Americans’ forearms:
“Micro Chip Implant Coming March 23, 2013”
“The New Health Care (Obama care) law H.R. 3590 Also HR 4872 requires all US citizens to have the RIFD implanted. This evil plan is being launched by America. its a micro chip injected in your hand. it will contain all your personal data heath and bank accounts etc. its also a GPS device being monitored. they can deactivate it at any time if they find you suspicious or not loyal to their government or go against them or their system and you will lose everything you ever had.”
“Paul McGuire, July 23, 2012, NewsWithViews.com”
“A major news story broke on AOL and countless other mainstream news media outlets, this past week, that the Obama Health Care Bill will require all U.S. citizens and babies to receive a microchip or Medchip by March 23, 2013…. In 2010, my book ‘Are You Ready for the Microchip?’ was released, and I asked the question, ‘Is the microchip implant hidden in the Healthcare Bill? Are newborn children starting in 2013 going to receive a microchip shortly after birth?'”
When people responded to these wild predictions by calmly pointing out that if you read the actual text of the Affordable Care Act there is no such provision, the conspiratorially-minded only dug in deeper, declaring themselves attacked:
“As with numerous other things that I have written and spoken about based on solid documentation, I am regularly challenged by some, and especially those in the Christian community, who are clueless about what is going on. Their criticism has never prevented me from presenting the facts, because I never take a poll about what I write or speak on. A Christian is called to speak the truth in love, whether or not it is accepted. I am not trying to disparage any ministry, but I don’t determine what I say based on whether or not it is “seeker friendly,” or popular. The only issue is, is it true and is it wise to communicate it at that particular time?
There are many things that I could say, but don’t, because there many people in our nation who, when confronted with a truth that is outside the box of their socially engineered consciousness, go into cognitive dissonance. As the microchip implant moves closer day by day…”
Time resolves these factual disputes in a pretty handy way. Tell me, have you had your microchip implanted yet?
