A notorious anti-vaccine activist, Dr. Sherry Tenpenny, testified that vaccines magnetized recipients’ bodies at a hearing held by the Ohio state legislature on vaccination mandates.
The Ohio legislature had solicited public comment on a bill prohibiting schools and businesses from requiring coronavirus vaccinations, and Dr. Tenpenny, who touts the long-debunked theory that vaccines cause autism and has campaigned against the coronavirus jab, took the opportunity to spout crazy misinformation.
She told the panel,
“I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures all over the internet of people who have had these shots and now they’re magnetized.
They can put a key on their forehead. It sticks. They can put spoons and forks all over them and they can stick, because now we think that there’s a metal piece to that. There’s been people who have long suspected that there’s been some sort of an interface, ‘yet to be defined’ interface, between what’s being injected in these shots and all of the 5G towers.”
A fact check by Reuters contains info from multiple doctors and medical experts that say NONE of the COVID vaccines magnetize skin, NONE of the materials in them are part of fucking cell towers!
Tenpenny began by saying she's spent up to 10,000 hours researching vaccines since the pandemic began— Tyler Buchanan (@Tylerjoelb) June 8, 2021
There's only been around 11,000 total hours since the Ohio state of emergency was declared, so that'd be 22 hours per day.
Just to give you a sense of her accuracy chops
