Hey, remember the time Topaz posted the video about the cheque that "proved" Barack Obama donated $100,000 to the Muslim Brotherhood?

She says she gets her information from her "grapevine".  And by grapevine, I suspect she means gullible elderly idiots who share this dog-shit amongst each other on FaceBook.

Stupid people are everywhere.  Best thing to do is to ridicule them into dark corners of the internet. 

The thing is, the conspiratard man can't be reasoned with. He can't be ridiculed because he believes that he's right, and that he's plugged into the real truth and that you disagree with him because you're not plugged into the real truth.  He genuinely believes he's right and you're wrong, and nothing will convince him otherwise.

Speaking of the "big board"...  it encourages these crackpots and is even run by one.

Well, I can't talk about that, for obvious reasons.  But if I could, I'd tell you that he's a for real, bat-shit crazy, flat-earth believing nutjob who genuinely believes that modern science is one big hoax.

Christian TV host claims Rachel Maddow will lead coup & decapitate Trump within hours


“America, you’ve been homosexualized. You’ve been Jewdy-ized. I’m just telling it how it is,” Wiles told viewers. “She was spewing out, last night, calls for revolution. She was telling the left, ‘Take a deep breath, we’re at the moment, it’s coming, we’re almost there, we’re going to remove him from the White House.’ We’re about 72 hours — possibly 72 hours — from a coup.

Alex Jones has had some of his podcasts removed from Spotify, some of his videos removed from Youtube, and hit with suspensions from Youtube and Facebook.

While it would be tempting to take this as a sign that these media outlets are taking a stance against fake news and conspiritard bullshit, I think the more likely explanation is that Youtube and Spotify and Facebook are just doing some ass-covering so that they don't get named as co-defendants next time Alex Jones gets sued.  Doing the bare minimum to say "look, we are taking action!" without hurting their bottom line and losing the dollars they get from providing conspiritard content to conspiritard audiences.

I think it would be fitting if Alex Jones had his head kicked in by conspiritards who become convinced that he's a "disinfo-agent", feeding his audience crap designed by the Deep State to distract from the real truth.

Or if he was skinned alive by conspiritards who are convinced that he's actually one of the lizard-people and are determined to peel off his fake skin-suit to expose him to the world.

There must be a way to promote theories like this...

It’s frightening what the internet has done for the conspiracy business. The crap some of these people believe is just jaw dropping. It has enabled a lot of fringe loons to get some real traction. The internet was supposed to make people better informed. It sure hasn’t succeeded for a great number who need it most.

 "A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing."

You tell people something which is at least arguably true, and then you lead from that to something which is bullshit, and you never mention all the things which flat out contradict both of those, and bingo, you have a new indignant, outraged follower. Of course, that only works if they ignore other sources of information which contradict you. So, yes, dumb people.

Books have been available for a long time though.  And, similarly, the snooty classes were worried about giving access to books to the lower classes from what I have read.

We have ignored the masses for too long, and now they are part of 'the' public.  The Democrats always had a great way to exploit them by making demons out of the capitalist classes.  That seems to be where we are going again for better or worse...

Until recently, the ability to publish wasn't very widespread.  Newspapers and book publishers acted as gatekeepers.  A flat earth conspiritard couldn't just take his thesis down to Random House or Simon & Schuster and reach a wide audience. These types were pretty much restricted to putting photocopied notes on car windshields.

Now anybody can put information on the internet and if they're clever enough at promoting themselves they can reach a wide audience.

Alex Jones compares being booted from Youtube etc to Jim Crow segregation:

Quote
“They don’t have a right to do this. This is discriminatory, like not letting black people eat at the lunch counters or ride on this bus. This is evil. This is wrong. Patriots and conservatives and nationalists are being persecuted while the left tries to use internet giant systems to bully us,” Jones said.

I'm pretty sure that liberals aren't the target market for SUPER MALE VITALITY supplements, Michael.  I can only imagine that right now his listeners are wondering "if the supplements can't keep Alex from turning gay, what chance do the frogs have??"

Like, maybe Alex could try and explain it to his listeners, but I'm not sure they're the most open-minded group when it comes to gender identity politics. I can only imagine how Alex might sound trying to explain this situation to his audience.


"Okay, LISTEN.  I am SICK AND TIRED of the stuff you guys are saying about Marissa. Alright?  LISTEN. I am gonna explain this one more time. LISTEN! She might have a dong, but she identifies as a woman, alright? She's a woman. Alright?? So I was watching heterosexual sex. Got it?  Heterosexual. Now, some of you people out there are saying 'but Alex, Marissa is hung like a donkey'.  Doesn't matter, alright? A trans woman is still a woman. Get it?  She might have a dick bigger than your forearm, but she's a woman. So I wasn't watching gay porn. Wake up, people. Figure it out, okay? Listen, with a dick like that, Marissa probably uses SUPER MALE VITALITY herself. I mean, that girl is hung, alright? Listen, you people look at that girl and those sweet titties and you tell me that you wouldn't let a babe like that put her dick in you. Come on. Are you kidding me? It makes me GOD DAMN SICK to hear you people out there talking about Marissa like she's a circus freak! She's not a freak! Don't call her a SHEMALE! She's not a SHEMALE! She's a beautiful, beautiful woman! ALRIGHT? ALRIGHT?"

This stuff would be laughable but of course it's actually quite scary, because people actually believe it. On a personal level I have an acquaintance who showed up among our littel group for a beer at the local one afternoon not long after the Orlando gay bar shooting suggesting it was all "fake news" because he didn't see any pictures of dead bodies. I thought he was laughing at the conspiracy theorists who were saying same, then I realized he was actually serious. I presented a couple of reality checks at him (49 names in every newspaper across the country, a quote in print from the Orlando chief of police, pictures of body bags being removed from the building) and non made a dent in his iron clad paranoia. It sent shivers down my spine that someone could be that easily led.

There have been threats and attacks. These people are scum, they are vermin, they lack any decency or humanity, and they deserve the absolute worst that fate has in store for them.

Speaking of which, today Alex Jones lost his court bid to have the lawsuit thrown out.

The "QAnon" conspiracy theory has been having a tough time since the mid-term election.  This bunch of imbeciles is an offshoot of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, and they believe that a guy named "Q" is giving them information about a top-secret, behind-the-scenes battle being waged to take down the globalist elite cabal of baby-eating Satanists.

Q had told them that a "red wave" was going to sweep America during the mid-term election. Obviously that didn't happen.

And Q has been telling them that Trump, Sessions, and Robert Mueller have all been working together on a grand plan to round up the evil cabalists.  Instead, Sessions got fired the day after the elections.

And now some of them are starting to question "The Plan".

I guess conspiracy theorists have always been around, but it seems to me they are more prevalent, and more ridiculous nowadays: "no planes hit the WTC, no one was killed in the gay bar in Orlando, Global warming is somehow the government bribing scientists, etc."  And I find it frightening but perhaps it's only because internet communications allowing them to have a louder voice so we hear more of it. Unfortunately I suspect those less educated may buy into it these days.

I don't doubt conspiracies exist.  I am actually a conspiracy theorist to some level, but only when it's plausible and there is a clear and viable motive. 

What freaks me out about the COVID conspiracy theory is the sheer impossibility of it.  I mean, perhaps it's plausible that the virus have started in a lab.  Only a handful of people would ever know the truth and have a motive for covering it up.

But that's where plausibility and motive end.  It's completely implausible that the politicians and medical industry throughout the world would come together and make up crap about a virus just so 'government overreach' can stop people from getting haircuts and going to concerts.  Not to mention, tank their economies to do so.

And the motive?  To vaccinate people and take their information when it's so readily available through technology and medical records.  It blows me away how stupid people can be.

Social Media feeds were swamped with a video of "doctors" claiming HDQ is the cure for Covid-19.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/28/tech/facebook-youtube-coronavirus/index.html

Quote
(CNN Business)A video featuring a group of doctors making false and dubious claims related to the coronavirus was removed by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube after going viral online Monday.

The video, published by the right-wing media outlet Breitbart News, featured a group of people wearing white lab coats calling themselves "America's Frontline Doctors" staging a press conference in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC.
President Trump shared multiple versions of the video with his 84 million Twitter followers Monday night despite the dubious claims running counter to his administration's own public health experts. Spokespersons for the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Good on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter etc for scrubbing it for their sites. Don Jr. was even suspended from Twitter for sharing the video.

Mom survived COVID and given the "I told you so's" near the end she was probably feeling a little smug. We knew mom was a little out there on the fringe and going thru her stuff has sure been interesting given the times.

She left us a supply of Survival Seeds 4 Patriots, 40 L of distilled water, enough freeze dried banana chips and trail mix to last thru the next Apocalypse, a solar power battery charger with about 1000 batteries and a wind-up radio. There was even a promotional voucher for 25% off bump-stocks and ammo.

They're like little treasures in the family keepsake collection now. I guess I better have a closer look at these fruit company stocks Mom bought too.

An exciting new conspiracy has emerged (at MLW).  It's center of operations is where Muhammed resides, at the Days Inn in Lakewood Ohio.  Powerful people are involved and if we could follow the trail of faces .... 

i'd like to tell you more, but when I click on the thread (3 hours old, 20 replies) I find it has been removed.  The Deep State at work! 

Or are the mods at MLW also getting a little tired of conspiratards?

Faces? Maybe that was a typo and you meant feces.
