Or, better yet, just don’t start one at all.
With Alex Jones getting more shrill and fatalistic by the day and Glenn Beck talking about FEMA concentration camps, a few conspiranoids seem to be thinking this is Zero Hour: Act now, or forever hold your peace in an American gulag.
You know the conspiranoid community is in trouble when David Icke has to step in to be the voice of reason:
“Please Don’t Riot – It’s Just What ‘They’ Want”
I hate to say it, but it’s sound advice. Your mortgage and pink slip aren’t going to disappear just because you get lickered-up and run down Main Street waving your rifle, anyway. Take a deep breath, light some candles, maybe listen to some jazz. I guarantee that you won’t want to start a revolution in the morning.
Their whole community is becoming confusing and too hard to follow. There’s so many options for them to believe now:A) Don’t riot, it’s what the lizard people want.B) Riot! Don’t listen to Icke. He believes in lizard people!C) Yikes! Icke has come under the control of the NWOinati (or whoever) and is now one of their agents.D) Yikes! Icke has always been under the control of NWOinati (or whoever) and his “theories” were merely a tool with which they could convince the masses that “alternative” thinkers should be the subject of ridicule and prejudice.E) Icke is one of the higher members of the NWOinati (or whoever) and his “theories” were merely a tool with which they could convince the masses that “alternative” thinkers should be the subject of ridicule and prejudice.F) Icke has come under the control of the lizard people and is now one of their agents.G) Icke is a lizard personAll of these options (and I’m sure there’s probably a hundred more) would probably be followed by a “and it’s because we are getting closer to the truth!”
That’s too bad about Beck. I used to listen to him on the radio a few years ago, and while there was certainly nothing insightful about him, he was a genuinely funny guy. But now that he’s really successful, he seems willing to pander to his audience and say anything for ratings.
Tell me about it, anon. Sometimes I think everyone in the conspiranoid *community* has accused every other conspiranoid of being a disinformationist at least twice, leading to inane declarations such as, “If you’re calling me a COINTELPRO agent, you must be COINTELPRO!” And would somebody please break it to these folks that COINTELPRO ended before I was freaking born?Andrew, I think Fox is giving Beck carte blanche. So now we’re witnessing all the pent-up stupidity and paranoia that he could never fully unleash on CNN or over the radio. The upside is we won’t have to suffer through any more fawning interviews with Michael Buble…
