Chris Barnes Thinks the Coronavirus Is a “False Flag” Because of Course He Does

Chris Barnes — tofu-hater, Park Auto Mall spokesperson, original frontman for Cannibal Corpse, and current vocalist for some band whose name escapes me right now — thinks the coronavirus is a “false flag,” and has been flaunting his refusal to engage in social distancing.

Barnes announced his less-than-well-thought-out views on COVID-19 in a series of tweets this week in which he called self isolation “a kinder more gentler form of martial law,” rhetorically asked “What’s next? Mandatory vaccinations for a false flag?,” and reasoned that since he personally hasn’t gotten sick despite hanging out in large crowds recently, the coronavirus must be bogus (He also included a super macho GIF from the 1987 Burt Reynolds action movie, Malone, which you’ve never heard of it because it’s drek.)


The CDC has warned that even if you’re asymptomatic, you may be carrying, and are therefore cable of spreading, COVID-19. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, recently told CNN that “We now know that asymptomatic transmission likely [plays] an important role in spreading this virus,” adding that asymptomatic infection “surely can fuel a pandemic like this in a way that’s going to make it very difficult to control.”

NBC’s Miami affiliate reports that Barnes’ current home state of Florida has reported more than 500 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with ten deaths to date.

That Barnes is shoveling this bull pucky isn’t shocking — this is, after all, the dude who accused survivors of 2018’s mass shooting at Florida’s Stoneman Douglas High School of being “crisis actors.” But, man, it still makes it that much harder to enjoy The Bleeding, y’know?
