Many Nigerians I speak with don’t like Obama anymore, mostly because of Obama’s support for gay marriage. But the #2 complaint about Obama is his initiative requiring all Americans to have a radio chip implanted in their body. I was talking to a trader this morning, and decided to ask where he had heard this. He pulled out his phone and brought up a text message, pictured above. Maybe the rumor emerged from discussion of electronic medical records? I’m not sure, but I think it has caught on here because Nigerians are predisposed to be suspicious of Obama because of his position on gay rights.
When I questioned whether this policy was true, I was accused of not being a real Christian.
In case it’s not legible, here is the text: “The govt of USA has just passed d Obama’s Health Care bill 2 law, it ll be implemented 23/03/2013. Dis bill entails dat all Americans must hav a Radio Frequency Id chip implanted in their right hand skin or forehead in order to access medical service. D prophecy of 666 is being confirmed. Pls be READY! @ all times, Dn’t miss the rapture. Pls 4ward dis sms 2 to those you care 4. B strong as we wait 4 d comin of Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, Send dis”
