There are anti-vaxxers – and then there is DeAnna Lorraine. The right-wing religious extremist is a big time conspiracy theorist, whose principal preoccupation since unsuccessfully trying to win Nancy Pelosi’s Congressional seat in 2020, has been to make ever more bizarre and wacko public statements.
Because we believe it’s important to keep tabs on these types of threats to democracy, HillReporter has covered her extensively. Some of our recent articles include:
But now the political commentator and podcaster has crossed the line from wacko to offensive. She appeared on the “Stew Peters Show” and told the “professional fugitive hunter” host that the worldwide effort to vaccinate people against the coronavirus is “the final takeover” and compared it to the Holocaust.
“This is truly the final takeover,” Lorraine said. “This is like the modern day Holocaust except for it’s global, and they’re trying to separate people from their families, they’re trying to separate people from polite society and ostracize people, if they’re not getting the vaccine.” She didn’t identify who “they” are.”
“Anyone who’s hesitant about the vaccine for obvious reasons, reasons because of vaccine shedding and missed periods and spontaneous abortions, death, cerebral palsy and all these other crazy, crazy –” Lorraine said before Peters interrupted.
“Sounds like a wet dream for these liberal radicals,” Peters insisted, illustrating his point with a photo of George Soros, who was not a subject of the discussion.
“The sad thing is,” Lorraine continued, “it’s this propaganda, this massive gaslighting campaign, has been teaching people to not trust their own gut, it’s been training people over the past year, and very effectively to teach, to trust science, and this is Satan’s work, I mean that’s really all there is to it right still I mean, this is the work of Satan, the father of lies, if you want to get religious. This is him being very effectively getting into the souls of people that once had souls, ripping them out and replacing them with these dark behaviors of lying and blackmailing.”
Lorraine’s run against the House speaker in California’s open primary was disastrous. She received just 1.8 percent of the vote, compared to Pelosi’s 74 percent.
