‘Hoax’ kills COVID-denying anti-vaxxer who worked for the CIA: report
Fellow conspiracy theorist Mark Tassi confirmed his pal’s death on Sunday, claiming Steele was fine until he was treated with an antiviral medication. Tassi claims Steele’s family gave into “shaming” and put the former Marine on a ventilator. According to Tassi, ventilators kill people.

A former CIA agent who bought into QAnon conspiracy culture has seemingly died from COVID.





The death of Robert David Steele, a guest on the far right-wing program “Infowars,” was confirmed by a friend of his on social media Sunday. Steele prided himself as one of the first people to identify COVID — which Vice reports caused his death — as a “hoax.”



The 69-year-old ex-marine was reportedly hospitalized in Florida earlier this month, but remained skeptical about the virus that was killing him until his dying breath.





“I will not take the vaccination, though I did test positive for whatever they’re calling ‘COVID’ today,” he blogged on Aug. 17. “The bottom line is that my lungs are not functioning. The good news is that I will survive with a few days off.”



Steele optimistically called his fatal illness a “near death experience” that mirrored what he thought was happening in the United States. He believed he’d pull through, thanks to a sound network of friends.





“We will never be the same because now we know that we’ve all been lied to about everything,” he claimed. “But, now we also know that we can trust each other.”

Fellow conspiracy theorist Mark Tassi confirmed his pal’s death on Sunday, claiming Steele was fine until he was treated with an antiviral medication . Tassi claims Steele’s family gave into “shaming” and put the former Marine on a ventilator. According to Tassi, ventilators kill people.



Calling “the whole thing suspicious,” Tassi introduced a new conspiracy theory naming “they” as the culprit. He believes the death of people like Steele is part of an effort to undermine Florida’s governor, who has been widely talked about as a Republican presidential hopeful.





“They are trying to make Florida look bad, why?” he asked rhetorically. “Why? Because (Ron) DeSantis is not going along with agenda so they are targeting Florida. Open your eyes. Don’t take my word for it. Do the research as I have done.”



While DeSantis’ plan to push through the pandemic without locking down Florida was initially praised, the conservative leader has come under fire since COVID infection rates in the Sunshine State began skyrocketing in recent weeks.










Tassi said Steele was touring the country to push claims that Donald Trump was the real winner of the 2020 presidential election when he got sick. Steele had allegedly spent all his money promoting that narrative.

Because (Ron) DeSantis is not going along with agenda so they are targeting Florida.

News flash - Florida does not need any help looking bad.  On a side note, it’s a bit unsettling knowing that conspiracy nutjobs are in the CIA.  One would think they have a more thorough screening process.  I know a guy whose straight A computer geek kid applied for a college internship with the CIA and wasn’t accepted, but this guy was career CIA??

And he was a Marine.

I think he was suffering from early on-set Alzheimer's. These people are fucking scary

Internships are generally offered by recruiters at colleges and then denied.  Staffers kids then get them with only a few exceptions.  They have to maintain the façade of no nepotism.

Poor kid went through a ridiculous four hour lie detector interview too.  I have another friend who is an electrical engineer in the defense industry.  His company wanted another higher level clearance on staff so they asked him to apply at the NSA.  He failed the lie detector interview twice.  This guy is clean like Mr. Rogers but they kept trying to get him to admit that he must have some involvement with using or dealing drugs because the lie detector indicated a slight anomaly on one specific question.  He said they did this for four hours straight the second time.  We laugh about it all the time.

Companies are the ones who sponsor an individual for a clearance at any agency, and while the individual is the one cleared, it's the company or sponsoring entity that owns and controls it.  The person doesn't "apply" for one personally.  The only possibility I can give your 'friend' is that he applied to the NSA for a job and wanted to leave his current one.

Whatever.  He was interviewed twice at NSA for a clearance for his company that he was denied of, and he sure as hell was not interested in a job with the NSA.  I wouldn’t be friends with anyone seeking that line of work.  Fuck the NSA and their three hop warrant bullshit.

Stupid doctors treating a virus with an antiviral medication.  Clearly there’s a conspiracy at hand since everyone knows you treat a virus with a livestock dewormer.

This guy basically committed suicide. For everyone he infected, who later dies, he committed murder. That’s just how I see it these days.
