Billionaire buffoon Clive Palmer is getting absolutely dunked on for distributing anti-vaxx flyers that source fake stats on vaccine deaths.
The dodgy pamphlets, sporting stats that have already been debunked in order to convince people to distrust COVID-19 vaccines, have been appearing in mail boxes across the nation.

“The Australian government’s Therapeutic Goods Administration report confirms 210 deaths and 24,000 adverse reactions after the COVID-19 vaccines. There are over 5000 deaths in the USA attributed to COVID vaccines including Pfizer,” the cooked letters say.
While the TGA *did* confirm there were 210 deaths reported that happened after the person was vaccinated, it doesn’t mean those were the cause of death. They’ve already condemned Clive Palmer in the past for spreading misinformation about vaccines, and have also commented on the statistics he’s misappropriated.
“The TGA investigates reported adverse events and has found only one case where an individual with vaccine related thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) or any other related condition has passed away,” the agency said.
“Sadly, about 160,000 people die in Australia every year – almost 3000 each week – and therefore it is quite expected that there have been some deaths reported within days or a few weeks of vaccination.”
Federal Labor MP Andrew Giles absolutely roasted Clive Palmer, calling the letters “ludicrous and destructive.” Giles’ Victorian electorate is Scullin, which had pretty bad COVID-19 rates during Melbourne’s second wave.
“Why is Clive Palmer spreading anti-vaxxer lies and nonsense around Melbourne’s northern suburbs?” Giles said.
This is a disgrace.— Andrew Giles MP (@andrewjgiles) June 20, 2021
Clive Palmer’s wealth may make him a billionaire, but his contribution to our society is negative.
His divisive and dangerous attention-seeking isn’t welcome in Melbourne’s north.https://t.co/cgbLoQELMR
“Clive Palmer’s wealth may make him a billionaire, but his value as a member of the Australian community is negative.
“People in Melbourne have borne the brunt of the pandemic in Australia, and we don’t need Clive Palmer attacking us, and denying Melburnians the chance to be safe.
“It’s way past time his attention-seeking antics came to an end. He has used his money to undermine our social cohesion and public health efforts. It’s nothing short of disgraceful; it has to stop, or be stopped.”
OOF. Go off king!
Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer, Alison McMillan, also commented on the pamphlets, telling people to ignore them.
“Please get your information from reliable sources,” she said.
Clive Palmer is well into anti-vaxx clownery, apparently telling the police that COVID-19 is a “genetically engineered virus created by world banks to kill off weaker humans.” I’m consistently amazed at Clive’s ability to see big banks as evil when he is literally a billionaire.
You’re on the same side as them, Clive! And as a mining magnate, you sure as hell aren’t here for the people.
