UK Government Deploy Info Warfare Unit Against Vaccine Sceptics
The British government has mobilised an elite “information warfare” unit to combat “anti-vaccine militants” and interrupt their “propaganda content” online, according to a report in The Sunday Times.
The report (behind a paywall) says that the unit is usually used to assist with operations against al-Qaeda and the Taliban, but now will be turned on to those who dare question the sanctity of COVID vaccination.
The report further notes that the outfit known as ‘The defence cultural specialist unit’ was formed in Afghanistan in 2010 and is part of the army’s 77th Brigade. “The secretive unit has often worked side-by-side with psychological operations teams,” “Soldiers are already monitoring cyberspace for Covid-19 content and analysing how British citizens are being targeted online,” it claims
Exactly what constitutes vaccine “disinformation” will be down to the government, and will likely make a target of anyone who points out potential side effects of vaccination, or questions the idea of mandating the jab, whether literally by law or by making it impossible to participate in society without it.
