Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Monday said that it was a "scary thought" that elites could be culling the population with vaccines to preserve the Earth's resources.
The Texas Republican spent part of his five-week break from Congress this week by interviewing conservative activist Alan Keyes while filling in as a guest host for Tony Perkins on Family Research Council's Washington Watch.
Gohmert pointed out that some liberals believed that the Earth was already over populated.
"A lot of people who fancy themselves elites, right, because they've made a lot of money, their names are all over the media and so forth, they've really signed on to an agenda that requires the depopulation of the globe," Keyes explained. "And in the name of fighting global climatological change, called global warming -- that's proven to be something that's wrong -- they are saying that we've got to cut back the population of the world."
"Bill Gates gave a famous talk back in 2009, which he was talking about actually abusing vaccinations, which are supposed to keep people healthy and alive, and saying how this could lead to a 15 percent reduction in the population of the globe as a way to achieve this result," he continued.
Keyes warned that elites had a plan to reduce the number of people in the world to 700 million "by culling the population."
"They're preaching that doctrine because they actually believe we're a blight on the face of the planet, we human beings," Keyes said. "And we should, therefore, be put on a path toward our own semi-extinction. I often try to get people to see that if you think about it, if we actually get back to the levels they’re talking about, it would just be these elitists and the people needed to service them. That’s all that will be left in the world."
"That's a scary thought," Gohmert agreed.
