Abbie shared screenshots of a bizarre email sent to her manager claiming she had been “reported” to the non-existent Covid Fraud Bureau of Investigation for “possible crimes against humanity” for her advocacy for vaccines.
Though she found the email amusing for the most part, the It’s A Lot podcast host cited a telling reference to the Rothschilds—a wealthy Jewish family known for their business interests, investments, and philanthropy—described by the author. as a ‘powerful, corrupt, non-governmental body’.
The Rothschilds have been at the center of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories for over two centuries, including false claims that they cause war and political unrest and secretly control the wealth and financial institutions of the world.

Conspiracy: Though she found the email amusing for the most part, Abbie cited a telling reference to the Rothschilds — a wealthy Jewish family known for their business interests, investments, and philanthropy — who were described as a “corrupt, un- governmental body’. She noted that many anti-vax conspiracy theories are related to anti-Semitism and neo-Nazis
“Here we are with anti-Semitism. Here we are. This is where it comes in,” she said.
‘[This is a] reminder to those who DM me and say “I’m anti-vax, but I’m not anti-Semitic.” Then stop associating with people who are literally neo-Nazis, who blame all the world’s problems on the Jews.’
The anti-vax and neo-Nazi movements have aligned themselves in recent months, with secret Telegram groups including thousands of posts accusing Jews of trying to crash the global economy and depopulate the world with the Covid vaccine and lockdowns .
Renowned anti-vaxxer Pete Evans, a former judge of Channel Seven’s My Kitchen Rules, was infamously dropped by dozens of sponsors last November after he posted a neo-Nazi “black sun” symbol on Instagram and Facebook.
Evans denies being a neo-Nazi.

However, it’s important to remember that vaccine hesitation is a spectrum that includes hard-line anti-vaxxers and regular folks concerned about the jab.
So just because someone is hesitant about the shot doesn’t mean they are an anti-Semite, and the anti-vax movement obviously includes some Jewish people as well.
The Covid-19 vaccine is a safe and essential measure being taken to protect the community from the spread of the virus.
The injection makes you significantly less likely to become seriously ill with Covid, and also reduces the chance of transmission.
