Conspiracy theorist Karen Brewer among 19 arrested in failed bid to overthrow Government. By Scott Palmer in New Zealand.

Notorious conspiracy theorist Karen Brewer has been arrested by police while protesting as part of a wider plan to overthrow the Government.

Brewer, who has thousands of followers on social media for her COVID-19 scepticism and claims about Freemasons and pedophiles in powerful positions, had been calling for mass protests on Tuesday morning to force Parliament in Australia and New Zealand to be dismissed. …




Images posted Tuesday morning show her waiting outside the Far North District Council for 9am to start her protest while police officers approach her. It appears from footage she is the only protester there.

“You need to leave immediately or else you will be arrested,” an officer warned in a video.

The latest update on Brewer’s Telegram channel confirmed she had been arrested, to the shock of her followers.

“This gives us more strength. Nelson Mandela was in prison for decades then he became president,” one person commented.

Others thought planning a protest of millions of people on a public social media platform might have tipped off authorities. …

Police say Brewer was one of 19 arrested for breaching alert level 4 restrictions during small anti-lockdown protests outside government and local council buildings around the country this morning.

Two were arrested in Northland, four arrested in Auckland, three in Hamiton, and six in the Bay of Plenty following a gathering outside the Tauranga City Council building.

There’s always someone more extreme, who takes it all too far.
