Breathtaking: Trapped in a hoax: survivors of conspiracy theories speak out

[ Editor’s note The story below is from the UK Guardian.  It is a major research paper and is 90% accurate.  Where it is wrong, it is very wrong.

But this is opinion.  Most at VT think Sandy Hook needs an independent analysis.

What is explained is Pizzagate, where the hoax behind the hoax is exposed as the crap it is and other things, vaccinations, birtherism, the mental diseases passed on by internet infection.

About a week ago, I commented in an email chain (which includes Israeli paid trolls who now run the “troofer” community along with prominent activists who read and shudder).

The subject was how electrons behaved differently in experiments where, when viewed, they altered behavior.  The reference included lots of science and research data.  Problem is, the research never happened, no references, no dates, no peer review and the science was junk.  No, they didn’t prove g-d exists by faking science for the those who don’t have enough background to know the difference.

This is where the anti-vacc movement comes from as well, fakery and junk science.  I read a piece a few years ago how tetanus is a normal childhood disease as is polio, an anti-vacc piece to calm parents concerns.

A child with tetanus will spasm to the extent he or she will snap his or her tiny little spine in half.  This is a normal childhood disease to a ‘vaxxer’ as is diphtheria, typhoid and perhaps AIDS.

Anyway, the story below is better than it could have been, to the extent I would recommend it.  There is nothing worse than someone who means well being hoaxed into insanity.

The Guardian is fairly careful but, as usual, totally ignores the reality of false flag terrorism… Gordon Duff ]

The Guardian: Conspiracy theories used to be seen as bizarre expressions of harmless eccentrics. Not any more. Gone are the days of outlandish theories about Roswell’s UFOs, the “hoax” moon landings or grassy knolls.

Instead, today’s iterations have morphed into political weapons. Turbocharged by social media, they spread with astonishing speed, using death threats as currency.

Together with their first cousins, fake news, they are challenging society’s trust in facts. At its most toxic, this contagion poses a profound threat to democracy by damaging its bedrock: a shared commitment to truth.

The trend began on obscure online forums such as the alt-right playground 4chan. Soon, media entrepreneurs realized there was money to be made – most notoriously Alex Jones, whose site InfoWars feeds its millions of readers a potent diet of lurid lies (9/11 was a government hit job; the feds manipulate the weather.)

Now the conspiracy theorist-in-chief sits in the White House. Donald Trump cut his political teeth on the “birther” lie that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and went on to embrace climate change denial, rampant voter fraud, and the discredited belief that childhood vaccines may cause autism.

  1. So, Mr Duff prefaces this article (which starts out by denying 911/inside job and chemtrails–Holy Sh*t!) denouncing the anti-vaxxers and the climate change “deniers.” As to the first, he is just supremely uninformed and makes one wonder whether whatever else he writes about is similarly suspect. That vaccines are dangerous and largely ineffective is seriously known at this point. Even the SCOTUS has held that vaccines are “unavoidably dangerous” and the vaccine court set up when Pharma was absolved from all responsibility for the effects of their poisonous garbage has paid out multiple billions to claimants over the years, vigorously resisting every case. The CDC fraud was referenced in an other comment. This is just a joke.

    Climate change should it occur is due to geophysical variations and surely none of it to CO2. Pollution and environmental degradation are another matter altogether and these effects are transparent. Again, one has to question the bona fides of the Senior Editor.

  2. There are “Conspiracy Theories” and then there are actual Conspiracies as defined in Black’s Dictionary:
    What is CONSPIRACY?

    In criminal law. A combination or confederacy between two or more persons formed for the purpose of committing, by their joint efforts, some unlawful or criminal act, or some act which is innocent in itself, but becomes unlawful when done by the concerted action of the conspirators, or for the purpose of using criminal or unlawful means to the commission of an act not in itself unlawful. Pettibone v. U. S., 148 U. S. 197, 13 Sup. Ct. 542, 37 L. Ed. 419; State v. Slutz, 106 La. 182, 30 South. 298; Wright v. U. S., 108 Fed. 805, 48 C. C. A. 37; U. S. v. Benson, 70 Fed. 591, 17 C. C. A. 293; Girdner v. Walker, 1 Heisk. (Tenn.) 186; Boutwell v. Marr, 71 Vt. 1, 42 Atl. 607, 43 L. It. A. 803, 76 Am. St. Rep. 746; U. S. v. Weber (C. C.) 114 Fed. 950; Comm. v. Hunt, 4 Mete. (Mass.) Ill, 3S Am. Dec. 340; Erdman v. Mitchell, 207 Pa. 79, 56 Atl. 327, 63 L. R. A. 534, 99 Am. St. Rep. 7S3; Standard Oil Co. v. Doyle, US Ky. 602, 82 S. W. 271, 111 Am. St. Rep. 331. Conspiracy is a consultation or agreement between two or more persons, either falsely to accuse another of a crime punishable by law; or wrongfully to injure or prejudice a third person, or any body of men, in any manner; or to commit any offense punishable by law; or to do any act with intent to prevent the course of justice; or to effect a legal purpose with a corrupt intent, or by improper means. Hawk. P. C. c. 72.

    Meaning that any criminal act involving more than one individual can be called a “conspiracy” by definition if it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that more than one individual was involved.

    On the other hand there are “Conspiracy Theories”. Such as the Official Conspiracy Theory as given in the 9/11 Commission report.

    Regarding the “conspiracy theorist-in-chief “. He was the only high profile individual who didn’t buy the unscientific bogus conclusion that Aircraft made basically out of Aluminum and Plastic were somehow able to penetrate the World Trade Center towers all on their own:

    One wonders if he sold out to the Zionists when he went to the fake UA 93 “crash site” last year and started rambling on about nonexistent Arab “highjackers”.

    Also the Guardian is the last place I’d look for an objective article on “Conspiracy Theories” since many consider it a deep state operative:

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/conspiracy-theory-foundations-of-a-weaponized-term/5319708

    • Trump, at the time , was a celebrity and a con man, not a high profile person, and certainly not the only famous person who spoke up. I think, the guy who spoke up from the highest profile position was Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

  3. Mr. Duff,

    What has happened to the ‘net? The ‘net has become weaponized as “troof” is now a weapon of mass destruction and I find myself surrounded by such folks as they have become resistant to reality and any fact at all.

    Another observation is that all American institutions have become undermined by these conspiracy theory’s and of course the scientific method is under attack and yes our institutions get things wrong however, as to the issues of vaccines and autism do not 17 peer reviewed studies prove anything?

    The worst purveyors of fake news is Fox News since their American audiences are huge and undermine our republic.

    Domestic enemies anyone?

    • I read the piece on Venezuela on MoA this morning. Very interesting.
      Then this evening “The Economist” newsletter arrived, and they maintain a totally different view.
      Now one of the two is fake news. Can you guess which one?
      I also saw that Erdogan suppoorts the democratically elected president of Venezuela.
      And I can see how he feels strongly about that!
      Russia rides the same train.
      But Mr. Tpm rides his own train in the opposite direction.
      They might just crash. But I hope not.
      And in all this fake news is of no use to anyone.

  4. Peer reviewed,
    Remember all the peer reviewed science back in the 40’s and 50’s proving smoking does not cause cancer. How about back in the 70’s as I remember being in sports, the medical establishment telling us we had to eat mouthfuls of salt tabs. Remember when hydrogenated oils were good and pushed by big medicine, can’t have natural butter it’s bad. All peered reviewed “science”. How about more recent, sort of.
    Ever seen how a aluminum beer can, can sever and slice right through a safe,,,, errr I mean a hollow aluminum jet airplane can slice through tons of structural steel and concrete. Even out to the delicate wing tips. Watch the peer reviewed prestigious Rutgers college show you how it happened. They proved it.
    Or the other peer reviewed study, and proof, how office fires can set off a chain reaction and have a 47 story building fall in 7 seconds. None of that junk science.

    • It may have been Purdue University, that showed how the plane barreled through the building. Regardless of which “prestigious” University put it out. You get my point where peer reviewed means squat, it’s bought off and easily manipulated as all the other things.

  5. Read the original in the Guardian this morning. These are fairly minor conspiracies. The important ones are the ones that affect the destiny of nations, that cause wars and get thousands of people killed. Let’s put the JFK assassination and 9/11 up there as two of the most important in the last century.

    *I wouldn’t poo-poo the anti-Vaxxers completely. Although the science on developing immunity is pretty solid there is some reason for concern regarding the ingredients being used in the many different shots and the shear number of vaccines children get in a compressed time frame. I personally know of a child who developed autism symptoms shortly after one of many vaccines.

  6. I must admit I had to laugh as I read about the owner of the pizza restaurant. It reminded me so much of a doctored photo I had seen time and again. But at the end of the story I felt very sad on behalf of the named owner who had to go through all this because of all those conspiracy jerks. I also agree with David that there is difference between public dissatisfaction with official explanations of horrific events that do not hold water, and the sort of paranoid neighbor mistrust, where people whisper and spread false rumors about people they don’t like.

  7. Not so sure I like the “conspiracy theorist’ brand being lumped into stuff such as the guy who was falsely accused of being the shooter, or pizza gate or even Jade Helm. Those are a bit different than legitimate conspiracy theories. 9/11 , JFK, abuses of surveillance, corporate secrecy, tests on humans, are a bit different because there is actual evidence. Attacks on individuals with made up information does not fall into the same category as say, the “government killed MLK “conspiracy theory which did turn out to be true. The crap being churned out like tunnels under Walmarts, is more akin to mass hysteria, or manufactured hysteria. Weather modification is on record, and should be viewed in a different light than vaccines, because anyone can test vaccines, but secrecy on behalf of authority or immense wealth, are things we need to be vigilant with.
