Lockdown Advocate Who Predicted 10 Million Dead in U.S. From Coronavirus Raises $80 Million in Fundraising For Online Learning Course

Cashing in on COVID hysteria?

The author of a viral pro-lockdown Medium post predicting 10 million Americans could die from coronavirus is also the Vice-President of a company that just raised $80 million in fundraising for an online learning platform.

Back on March 10th, Thomas Pueyo wrote a post entitled ‘Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now’ which ended up receiving 40 million views and was translated into 40 different languages.

He then followed up with another alarmist piece in which he asserted, “If we do nothing: Everybody gets infected, the healthcare system gets overwhelmed, the mortality explodes, and 10 million people die.”

Pueyo went into salacious detail about how exhausted health care workers would break down and die, how they would have to choose who to give oxygen to while allowing others to die, and how hospitals would be totally overwhelmed, with patients lining the corridors.

“Not just a run-of-the-mill bedwetter, then, but a kind of super-bedwetter. And a highly influential one at that,” writes Toby Young. “The celebrities who shared his post included former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, actor George Takei, Twitter cofounder Ev Williams, author Margaret Atwood, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt and Harvard Professor Steven Pinker.”

After exacerbating alarmism about the threat of coronavirus, Pueyo is now being accused of cashing in on it.

Back in November 2018, he was appointed ‘Vice-President of Growth’ for Course Hero, an online learning platform that has exploded in popularity since schools and universities were closed due to COVID-19.

In its latest fundraising round, Course Hero netted an incredible $80 million dollars.

“In Course Hero’s case, the new capital comes as a stark contrast to how the business functioned before 2020,” reports Tech Crunch.

“After launching, the startup waited eight years to raise a $15 million Series A. Now, after going another nearly six years without raising venture capital, Course Hero has closed two rounds in this year alone.”

Did Pueyo, who hired a PR firm to promote his March coronavirus posts, deliberately fan the flames of fearmongering early on in the pandemic in the knowledge that he would cash in later?
Surely not.

As we previously highlighted, a study which illustrated the level to which people had been terrified by the media found that Americans on average believed that over 30 million people had died in the U.S. from COVID, 225 times higher than the actual figure.

German Government “Concerned” About Massive Anti-COVID Restriction Protests

Never before in history have demonstrations been so widespread.

The German government is seriously “concerned” over the sheer number of protests against COVID restrictions in recent weeks, which are the most widespread in the country’s history.

Influential German broadsheet Die Welt reveals that on the same day, protests took place in over 1,000 locations across the country.

“The government is concerned about the decentralized actions,” reports the newspaper, with one source labeling the “immensity” of the demonstrations “depressing.”

“Never before in the history of the Federal Republic have there been demonstrations that are more widespread than in the last few weeks,” states the report, with the government counting 1,046 separate protests involving around 188,000 participants.

Instead of describing such developments as “depressing,” you’d think authorities in Germany would maybe considering listening to the will of their people.

A scandal in Hamburg where the Mayor falsely claimed that the unvaccinated represented 95% of COVID cases didn’t do anything to restore trust.

A Senate investigation reported the actual number to be 14.3%.

Germany is still pushing ahead with plans to make the COVID vaccine mandatory, with a parliamentary debate on the issue planned for next week.

Las year, the editor-in-chief of Germany’s top newspaper Bild apologized for the news outlet’s fear-driven coverage of COVID, specifically to children who were told “that they were going to murder their grandma.”

As we highlighted earlier, the Czech Republic has abandoned plans to make the COVID vaccine mandatory for some groups after numerous large protests took place in Prague.

The general picture across the continent is one of restrictions being gradually rolled back in response to Omicron proving mild, although countries like Austria are still planning to make the jab compulsory.

Howard Stern: Unvaccinated Americans Deserve To DIE At Home, Should Be Refused Hospital Access

“No one’s sitting there conspiring against you; You’re going to go home and die. That is what you should get.”

Talk radio host Howard Stern declared Thursday that if he were in charge of the country all unvaccinated Americans would be banned from getting any form of hospital treatment, adding that they all deserve to “go home and die.”

“If it was up to me, anyone unvaccinated would not be admitted to a hospital,” Stern proclaimed on his Sirius XM show, adding “At this point, they have been given plenty of opportunity to get the vaccine.”

He continued, claiming that anyone who hasn’t taken the shots has “been told you will die if you get the vaccine. Some of you will live, but most of you will die.”

“They don’t trust our government,” Stern continued, adding “They think that there’s some conspiracy to turn them into a magnet or something like this. They think they are going to become magnetized if they take the vaccine.”

“No one’s sitting there conspiring against you,” Stern asserted, adding “Americans don’t want to create a vaccine that’s going to turn you into a robot or magnetize you. There’s enough Americans now have taken it. Look at us as a sampling where nothing has happened to us.”

Stern further presented himself as evidence that the vaccine is safe, noting “I’ve taken this vaccine three times, and the worst side effect is for a day, I had a little bit of a headache.”

Despite this, Stern and his co host discussed knowing people who are fully vaccinated who are severely ill or dead after having COVID.

“It’s time for you to get it,” Stern said of the vaccine, adding “Now, if you don’t get it, in my America, all hospitals would be closed to you. You’re going to go home and die. That is what you should get.”

Watch:

Stern has continually politicised the issue of vaccination, and ranted against those who have chosen not to take COVID vaccines, calling them “f***ing morons,” and “Sh**heads.” Stern also declared of people who had died from COVID while unvaccinated “F**k ‘em, f**k their freedom.”

    WEIRD: Kamala Harris LAUGHS When Asked Why Biden Admin Has Failed To “Shut Down The Virus”

    Insane

    Kamala Harris is weird. Whenever she is asked a question that exposes her own and the Biden administration’s failures, lies and broken promises, she laughs about it.

    The latest example came Thursday as “CBS Mornings” host Gayle King addressed Harris and said “Let’s talk about Covid because you all ran on, ‘We are going to get Covid under control, we are going to get this licked.’ As we sit here today, we’re going into year three still talking about Covid.”

    “So it is not under control,” King continued, adding “So I’m wondering what is your strategy here? And have you come to the point that we have all got to figure out how to live with Covid?”

    Cue the insane cackling laughter.

    Watch:

    Biden ran on shutting down the virus and ‘not shutting down the economy’.

    Two years later the government is still making policy based on the virus, the country spent most of that time under some form of shutdown, and the economy is in the toilet again.

    Never mind, lets laugh it up.
