Joe Biden is not yet president. But his new White House already has its first conspiracy theory to deal with.
It goes by the “Great Reset” label and under its construction a wild dystopian future is in store. The coronavirus pandemic is just a way to enslave humanity and end capitalism. Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan is really a cover for the nefarious plot of a world cabal in Davos, Switzerland to abolish private property and build prison camps for dissidents who refuse to accept microchips that will read their thoughts. Even Grover from Sesame Street could be involved.
The Big Reset is a mishmash of fears of a one-world government that gained momentum following Biden’s victory. It was fueled by right-wing media figures who told their audiences Biden was determined to initiate said reset by using the coronavirus pandemic to ban religion, crush small businesses, and turn humans into something like robots – or replace them with real robots.
Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon has said the big reset is ‘in your grill’, while radio host Glenn Beck has said the big reset is a plot to institute Nazi-style restrictions on US citizens. WorldNetDaily called it a ploy of our “globalist overlords”. Pro-Trump “Diamond and Silk” figures have warned their audiences on Newsmax TV that Biden is behind the Great Reset plot.
“You know Biden said he wanted to rebuild better,” Lynnette “Diamond” Hardaway said on November 21 on her show, Diamond and silk: clear crystal. “But no, he doesn’t want to build better. He wants to take over this economy and rebuild on a global scale. All of you, I know you’ve heard of this thing called the big reset.
Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham also promoted the idea that Biden is a key player in a nefarious movement dubbed the Great Reset.
“Its managers, who are basically all former Obama staff, believe in something called the great capitalism reset,” Ingraham said on an episode of his show in November. “It is a plan to force a more equitable distribution of the world’s resources.”
Despite the apocalyptic predictions of pro-Trump media figures, the actual origins of the supposed Big Reset are much more mundane.
In May, the World Economic Forum – a non-governmental group that hosts the annual Davos conference – announced a series of events and articles called the Big Reset, centered on the idea of reducing inequality in the aftermath of the pandemic. . The series, summed up in a book of the same name by WEF chief Klaus Schwab, is made up of the same kind of vague talk and well-being aimed at the world’s rich that equates to thought leadership in Davos. WEF’s Great Reset website is filled with buzzwords like ‘sustainability’, ‘upscaling’ and ‘stakeholder capitalism’, but few concrete plans – and certainly nothing like the world-destroying plot. described in pro-Trump media.
The WEF did not respond to a request for comment.
Intrigued by conspiracy theories, Spectator writer Ben Sixsmith reviewed Schwab’s Big reset book and noted a number of differences between it and the Communist manifesto. On the one hand, Sixsmith wrote, the Communist manifesto is actually interesting. Sixsmith noted that the WEF is backed by massive corporations like Apple and Pfizer, suggesting that Schwab and his group are hardly radical Communists.
Yet right-wing media figures took to Schwab’s ‘Great Reset’ series this summer, seeing it as proof that the coronavirus restrictions were in fact meant to destroy the global economy and make way for much more restructuring. disaster of governments, societies and economies. worldwide. Further speculation about the Great Reset has been fueled by a remodeled image of Schwab receiving an honorary degree in Lithuanian college robes which to some looks grim.
“Klaus Schwab is not a member of the Church of Satan,” wrote a blogger who debunks conspiracy theories.
The Great Reset conspiracy theory has come to encompass a large number of hoaxes and petty conspiracy theories surrounding the pandemic, often centered around fears of billionaire Bill Gates and a COVID-19 vaccine.
The closest of the Great Reset conspiracy theorists to an agreed-upon text comes from Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who has a history of sending pro-Trump open letters that are picked up on right-wing blogs. In a late October letter to Trump that Carlson then promoted on his Fox show, Viganò alleged that the Big Reset was a cover for a plan built by Bill Gates centered on “waiving private property and joining a vaccination program against Covid- 19. “
According to Viganò, people who refused a global digital identification of a “health dictatorship” would be imprisoned in detention camps and lose their property.
“A global plan called the Great Reset is underway,” Viganò wrote in his letter. “Its architect is a world elite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations.
After making inroads to the right this summer, the big reset followed the trend on Twitter this month after a September video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau using the word “reset” in a speech about the pandemic was went viral. A Conservative Canadian parliamentarian has secured tens of thousands of signatures on a petition denouncing the big reset. Since then, the Great Reset plot has continued to flourish on social media, with a November video of conservative expert Ben Shapiro speaking, garnering more than 300,000 views on Facebook, according to analytics tool CrowdTangle.
The Big Reset theory has also been embraced on right-wing fringe networks like Newsmax and One America News.
“Now we have this push for what’s called the Big Reset,” Newsmax host Michelle Malkin said on a Nov. 21 broadcast. “And every aspect of how we live our lives, how we worship, whether we are allowed to do so, how we raise our children, how they are allowed to access education, is transformed on the basis of nothing that is really backed up by real science. “
By focusing on a foreign cabal instituting a nefarious liberal agenda, the Great Reset conspiracy theory seems to echo the infamous Obama-era conspiracy theory that the United Nations would impose a sinister plot called “Agenda 21” , with many of the same tropes but a new emphasis on vaccine fear in the era of the pandemic.
Now, the promoters of the Great Reset plot have claimed that Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan is in fact a front for the Great Reset. Journalist Lara Logan, who hosts a program on Fox’s digital channel, posted Twitter post claiming Build Back Better is a cover for “tearing it all apart”. On his show, Beck claimed that Build Back Better was “now part of the big reset.”
In reality, Biden’s Build Back Better plan centers on rebuilding the economy after the coronavirus and addressing issues like failing infrastructure and racial equality. But for Great Reset fear-mongers, the plan is just a cover for international figures like Schwab.
Conspiracy theorists have even claimed that Sesame Street puppets are part of the program. Breitbart columnist James Delingpole, a leading proponent of the Great Reset conspiracy theory, has angered that puppets Grover and Elmo recorded videos promoting vaccines and urging children to follow precautions in case of pandemic, while Grover appeared on a WEF podcast on the virus.
“Some of us are old enough to remember a time when this kind of blatant propaganda only came from countries behind the Iron Curtain,” Delingpole wrote of the puppet podcast interview.
