Brooke Shields Promotes Microchips For Children Live On TV

Fact checked
Mainstream media has continued its attempt to normalize the idea of microchips for children, with Brooke Shields the latest high-profile figure to claim that “microchips for humans are the next big thing”.

Mainstream media has continued its attempt to normalize the idea of human microchips, with Brooke Shields the latest celebrity to endorse the use of microchips for children. 

I would love to put one in my kids,” Shields said on TODAY’s Take Thursday. “I honestly am not completely against chipping my children.

Breathlessly extolling the virtues of RFID microchips, Brook Shields explained a supposed benefit of implanting the chip – you can be tracked “like your pets or your phone.

The mother of two young daughters, Shields noted how the family dog has a microchip that helped authorities return the pooch after he ran away from their home in New York City.

Despite admitting microchips are “creepy and futuristic,” the actress had an idea of how to get the device implanted in her children.

I thought I would do it in their sleep,” she said. “Mom, what was that? ‘Oh, I don’t know it’s a mosquito.”’

Brooke Shields’ disturbing appearance on TODAY was merely the latest example of mainstream media using well-known and trusted celebrities to promote the idea of microchips for humans to their gullible audience.

Last year NBC News continued its attempt to normalize the idea of microchips for humans, airing a report that claimed children will be microchipped “sooner rather than later” and that Americans will accept this because it will make their children “safer.”

The public will accept microchips as easily as they accepted barcodes on consumer items, the report claimed.

Electronics expert Stuart Lipoff told NBC that microchipping children is “safe and inevitable.

People should be aware that testing is being done right now. The military is not only testing this out, but already utilizes its properties. It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when.

Branding human cattle

Lipoff also told NBC that people shouldn’t be concerned about “big brother” tracking their children – this technology will only be used for “safety and convenience,” he says – and that the technology is nothing more than an upgrade on traditional cattle branding, and barcodes on consumer items.

When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way,” he said, adding that it will “definitely happen.”

The only catch is that you won’t know exactly what is being put into your child’s body. You also won’t know who will have access to the data. If history repeats, it will go from being technology adopted for its ‘convenience and safety’ and then overnight will become mandatory for you and your family – or else.
