Now that Jeffrey Epstein is either dead from murder or suicide, or been taken off to escape justice or be interrogated by goons, we are getting the usual “conspiracy theorist” label by those who are either very dishonest or just plain dumb, naive or ignorant.
Especially with those in the media as well as apparatchiks, we get a good view as to who someone really is when they immediately label someone as “conspiracy theorist” when that person isn’t obediently and gullibly believing every word that “officials” and their media stenographers tell us.
Perhaps there are those who immediately call someone a “conspiracy theorist” for merely questioning the official narrative, because the alternative explanations (with facts or circumstantial evidence given) cause the labelers anguish. For example, we’d rather not hear about someone such as allegedly Epstein sexually exploiting or abusing teenage girls. But further, it is more distressing when it turns out to be an elaborate scheme that involves many, many people, well-known or not, and that a lot of innocent young girls are being abused by all those scum.
I have a feeling that some of the high-profile people who have been involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s escapades include people in the news media, as well as politicians, Wall Street cronies and other very well-known personalities not involved in finance or politics. Craig Murray analyzes whether some events in the past involving Bill Clinton and Epstein are mere coincidences.
And Caitlin Johnstone writes about the labeling of people as “conspiracy theorist,” and about an NBC reporter Ken Dilanian who warns of “conspiracy theorists” who aren’t buying the official narrative. Apparently Dilanian is also a known CIA asset. So who is the real “conspiracy theorist” here?
There are many obedient sheeple in the news media now, either just out of authoritarian devotion to their rulers in Washington, or just out of a naive and gullible simpleton mentality. Some of them will literally repeat word for word whatever government officials tell them in their “news” reports.
As I wrote in this post last December,
For example, Glenn Greenwald pointed to court historian Douglas Brinkley’s fawning interview of Barack Obama, and that “journalists joyously dance with top officials, swing on their tires, are creepily grateful when they’re sprayed in the face by their squirt guns, and play fun beach games with the very campaign officials they’re ostensibly covering.”
…some examples provided by Greenwald have included Bob Schieffer kissing up to former NSA directer Michael Hayden, and Bob Shieffer hatchet-jobbing Ron Paul on foreign policy. And Scott Pelley’s “13 uninterrupted minutes of drooling propaganda” interview of Obama defense secretary Leon Panetta, how Wired manipulated chat logs to aid and abet the government’s persecution of Army whistleblower Bradley Manning, and Diane Sawyer and Brian Ross’s anti-Iran fear-mongering (things haven’t changed much).
We have just gone through more than two years of “Trump-Russia collusions” conspiracy theory, and it was all theory because not only was there never any evidence for such collusion or Trump-Russia conspiracy, and the Mueller Report says just that, but there has been no evidence that the DNC computers or emails were actually hacked.
But the “Trump-Russia collusions” and “Russian election meddling” false narratives i.e. “fake news” propaganda were being disseminated by the news media over and over and over, so many Americans really believed it all. Now, not so much.
So we don’t really have a “news media” now, we have a government media, the propaganda wing of the U.S. government. And it’s not just the national media, but many or most local news media outlets throughout the U.S. That’s because a lot of people are just easily propagandized.
But also a lot of people in the media are too damn lazy to do actual fact-checking, actual investigative research, and instead they tend to take information that a government official gives them as the word of God.
So this “conspiracy theorist” label being thrown around and directed toward those who question the official narrative is distressing, especially, as Johnstone pointed out in her article, when our beloved yet decrepit FBI tells us that “conspiracy theorists” are the new “domestic terrorism” threat.
And that is distressing because we now live in an age false accusation, an era of ignorance and hysteria regarding many issues, including the paranoid and triggered college snowflakes, and the climate fanatics who call people “deniers” and who want to jail or kill the “deniers.” And an era of false accusation now being the norm, such as with Title IX abuse. The accusations against Brett Kavanaugh were false accusations with NO evidence to back them up. And I detest Kavanaugh, if you didn’t know, but I still think the truth is important.
And the whole “Russia collusions” matter was a false accusation against a political candidate and then sitting President.
Charles Burris posted two posts on eugenics on the LRC blog. I’m not sure if it was because of the Epstein case now in the news, because we have heard that Jeffrey Epstein was into eugenics. The Burris posts are The Eugenics Crusade and Selling Murder: The Killing Films of the Third Reich.
In the 2nd Burris post, he writes about the “documentary Selling Murder: The Killing Films of the Third Reich, the single most important film about the Nazi’s Aktion T-4 euthanasia program.” He says “It shows exactly how the Nazis marginalized people with disabilities and mental illnesses by making them less and less until it became acceptable to exterminate them.”
That reminded me of the climate fanatics calling people “deniers” and wanting to jail them or have the “deniers” killed. Have you heard that?
But, speaking of references to the “mentally ill,” we are hearing of the importance of gun-buying background checks, using FBI or otherwise government databases, of course. And people want to take guns away from those labeled “mentally ill,” because the gun-grabbers want to disarm already more vulnerable people and make them even more defenseless.
However, the problem here is how “mentally ill” will be defined, and by whom. Given that the U.S. is becoming more like a USSA, an American Soviet Union, it seems to me that civilians or “any non-government employee” who owns an illegal gun will eventually be determined to be a “danger” or a “terrorist” by the “authorities.” Or determined to be “mentally ill” by our whacked out Xanaxized society and by the gubmint in Washington. But not just gun owners, also people who don’t share the “transgender” ideology, people who support the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence, people who live “off the grid,” etc., etc. Yeah, those “mentally ill” people.
And, oh yes, “conspiracy theorists.”
