Conviction After Utah Tech Company Founder Says “Jews” Behind Efforts To “Euthanize American People”
David Bateman, founder of Utah tech company Entrata, sent an email to several parties, including Utah tech executives, stating that “the Jews” are behind the attempt at “genocide” of “our people” which is underway.
“I believe that the pandemic and the systematic extermination of billions of people will lead to an effort to consolidate all the countries of the world under one flag with a totalitarian regime,” he wrote. “I know, that sounds crazy.”
He urged Utah to take action in a letter that sparked strong reactions in tech, Utah and social media circles. The letter was forwarded to KSL TV and confirmed by Bateman, who according to a July article, retains majority ownership of the company after relinquishing the CEO position.
Many Utah residents immediately condemned the letter, including on an unverified Twitter account that appeared to be from Entrata CEO Adam Edmunds, who dismissed the company from the letter and said the opinions were “Theirs alone and do not reflect the views or values of Entrata. . “

Bateman warned, “Utah must stop the vaccination campaign. Notify your employees. Tell your friends. To prepare. Be careful.”
He said the pandemic vaccines are an attempt to depopulate the world.
Utah Rabbi Avremi Zippel said Utah is better than Bateman’s words and is concerned they might lead to violence.
“I was disgusted to read this flaming heap of letter-rubbish,” he said on Twitter. “Granted, the content is absolutely wacky tunes, but unfortunately we’ve seen nonsense like this metastasize in violence against our community before,” he said while saying it touched on all anti-Semitic talking points. usual.
I will say this anyway:
Bateman’s letter is impressive in the sense that he almost got a full four paragraph anti-Semitic bingo.
Censorship, Hasidic laws, Nuremberg, sterilization.
Just add the weather control and you have the complete set!

Utah businessman Blake McClary, who runs the Salt Lake City chapter of Silicon Slopes that seeks to attract tech companies to Utah, also tweeted in response to the letter. He stated:
Dave Bateman has been Utah’s worst tech representative in years. We all know that. It’s time for him to leave Entrata and enjoy his tax haven in Puerto Rico and not embarrass us.
Entrata, based in Lehi, is a property management software company co-founded by Bateman, which owns a majority stake in the business. according to a company profile by Forbes in July, who also said the leadership has been taken over by new CEO Adam Edmunds, who has helped raise $ 507 million in funding.

Bateman has already moved to Puerto Rico, where he actively posts family content, including his children. However, on his Instagram Stories page, which he mentions in the letter, he posts global conspiracy theories that contradict established science.
“Everything is cleverly censored,” he wrote. “I can only deliver content to people on my Instagram Stories. I saved about 500 slides to my account in Highlights… It’s kinda over there, but it’s my theory on what’s going on.
His theories appear to lean heavily on long-standing conspiracy theories and appear to contradict each other. In one slide he says COVID-19 death statistics are inflated as part of the global conspiracy and in another he accuses “the lab that disclosed the coronavirus” of killing “more people than ‘Hitler’. Adolf Hitler is responsible for millions of deaths, including the Holocaust which extinguished 6 million Jewish lives. So far, the COVID-19 pandemic has killed less than 5.5 million people.
Many Bateman Instagram slides contain platform disclaimers and links to reputable news sources in addition to misinformation.
There, Batemen blames much more than a single religious group. He states that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has donated to the Bill Gates Foundation and asks if Gates is behind it. Other slides denigrate Church leaders while others introduce Catholicism, including the Pope. And many more focus on the Jewish religion with suggested connections between Bible verses, King Solomon, Freemasonry, and the global viral pandemic together. He also says, “I have great love for the Jewish people.
On an unverified Twitter account that appears to be Bateman’s, he describes himself as “Student of all religions, member of none; lover of ancient lights and truth wherever it can be found. It lists San Juan, Puerto Rico as its location.
Many theories from Bateman’s stories are also reflected in the letter.
“I’m writing this email knowing that many of you will think I’m crazy after reading it. I believe there is a sadistic effort underway to euthanize the American people. It’s obvious now. It is undeniable, yet no one is doing anything.
Bateman had previously made headlines for freeing the Utah Republican Party from debt, then accusing a lawmaker of extortion.
Twitter was full of condemnation of the letter and called on him to step down from the tech company he had founded. He was also accused of sexism while he was a public speaker at a technical conference.
