Checking In with Alex Jones During COVID-19 Again

It's been a week since I peeked into Infowars to see how things are going. Jones was kind of blathering on about the same old same old at that time. He thought The Simpsons episode where little √úter possibly gets ground up into sausages was a dark hint of what the globalists plan to do... Continue Reading →

The Top 10 Most Annoying Conspiranoid Ideas Related to COVID-19 and How to Deal with Them

This is not an easy time for anyone, and you know what makes it infinitely worse? Idiotic theories and ideas that cannot and will not be supported by any sort of valid evidence, ever. You can't escape them. They're all over social media, alt media, YouTube. Co-workers reel with them out with little to no... Continue Reading →

The Power of Belief: A History of Spiritualism (Part I)

  How Two Young Girls Started a New Religion Without Even Trying Spiritualism was an accident, and it was an accident of humble and disturbing origin. It began in a rented two-story cottage in rural Hydesville, New York, in the spring of 1848. The Fox family had just moved to the area in December of... Continue Reading →

Checking in with Alex Jones During COVID-19

It has been a rough few years for Alex Jones. Lawsuits. DUIs. Divorce. Tragicomic depositions. Sexual harassment allegations. Infowars defectors publishing tell-all pieces in the New York Times. Getting de-platformed. Losing his "unofficial" (totally official) YouTube channel when that of his lowly former employee, Aaron Dykes, is still thriving. I stopped updating Leaving Alex Jonestown...

The U.S. Religious Leaders Who Are Curing COVID-19

I've already written about Jim Bakker's attempt to pass off an ordinary colloidal silver solution as a cure for COVID-19. Alex Jones made similar claims for a silver toothpaste. Those claims are absurd. Colloidal silver has been around forever, and it hasn't been shown to cure much of anything. These guys are stooping to old-timey... Continue Reading →

Jim Bakker’s Endtimes Buckets o’ Stuff and Coronavirus Cure

Hoarding food and supplies for the apocalypse could be a psychological artifact of the Cold War, consumerism gone haywire or some form of collective insanity. But whatever the root cause of this squirrel-like behaviour, there's no denying it has become a great American pasttime. For thousands of Americans, there is nothing quite so satisfying as...

In September of 2019, Alberta premier Jason Kenney announced the establishment of a public inquiry into the sources of funding behind anti-pipeline activism in the province, as well as the opening of a digital tipline to which citizens can report suspected instances of foreign funding of such activism. It was a bizarre and costly decision... Continue Reading →

Satanic Panic and Recovered Memory in the News

What do "Satanic Mormon" child abuse rings and a glam cult leader have in common? This therapist: On Wednesday (October 3, 2018), six people filed a lawsuit in federal court against a John and Jane Doe who have been identified as Robert and Brenda Miles.

Pedo Panic in the UK: Introduction

The recent arrest of the anti-Islam mouthpiece known as "Tommy Robinson" in Leeds has brought to my attention a troubling issue that has plagued the UK for over a decade: Moral and racial hysteria surrounding so-called "grooming gangs." I have to admit that I had been only vaguely aware of this phenomenon up until now.... Continue Reading →

That series will dissect the "grooming gang" hysteria that has gripped parts of England for over a decade, the numerous historical child abuse inquiries that have been launched to uncover possible abuses committed years ago (some of...
