Let’s find out just how knowledgeable readers of the Citizens Journal are when it comes to separating Covid-19 fact from sheer lunacy. Below are a baker’s dozen (13) questions you should be able to correctly answer by now. Answer key is at the bottom. I encourage participation from both wokified true believing numbskulls and conspiracy theorist “kooks.” Let’s get started. Good luck!

1) Think back to October 18, 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic took hold of the world. There was a big gathering in New York City called Event 201. What was it?

                                                      [A] VAERS doesn’t exist or Don Lemon would be all over this.

                                                      [B] Zero according to FDA “experts.” All coinky dinky!

                                                      [C] More than 4200 as of May 14, and growing.

                                                      [D] Dr. Peter Hotez never cites VAERS stats so it doesn’t matter.

3)  According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), what are your chances of recovering from a bout of Covid-19?

                                                      [A] Are you mad?! This is a plague and everyone who gets it dies!

                                                   [A] Pfizer if injected with their vaccines.

                                                   [B] Moderna will surely cover costs for bad reactions.

9)  Messenger RNA vaccines have a long-proven track record of success, right?

                                                [A] Bill Gates says the entire world needs to get jabbed, so yes.

                                               [A] They’re all Trump supporters and deserve what they get.

                                               [B] Why can’t they be happy with safe and effective and let it go?

                                               [C] Anti-vaxxers want to make people unhealthy or kill them.

                                               [D] They ruin own careers and reputations to spread utter nonsense.

13) So you’re scheduled for your first covid vaccination. A trusted friend, the most intelligent person you have ever known, sends you a message that after spending the past year doing copious research, he’s come to the conclusion there is an evil depopulation agenda in progress and the vaccines are being used as bioweapons to attain sinister goals. What do you think now?

                                              [A] Only a raving lunatic would spout such BS. Must destroy…

I was taking this test seriously going in.
It did however bring a couple more questions to light.
