For one, these folks that we all could do without...either the 'truthers' that actually believe their own drivel...or the hasbara trolls, are muddying the brand of fact. I don't want to hear what you theorize actually happened. Or is happening. Or may happen. Your pet paranoia is as much unsubstantiated shit as the evening news. If you have an agenda from Tel-Aviv and are paid to troll the sites that seek facts not fiction...at least your are getting a paycheck and can be rather easily identified and disregarded.
Neither group will ever say those dreaded words: "I don't really know". Like the used car salesman, they always have a ready answer to common-sense questions.
"How did the illuminati get so much power when I have never met or even seen anyone that belongs to this group, or even heard of it except from you?"
"Well, they are a secret society, aren't they? They do everything under the radar so that the common man is bamboozled without even knowing who did it...But I have figured it out!"
"Oh...you have, have you?" "Well, then, if they are that secret, you must be pretty smart to have penetrated their subterfuge, yes?"
I guess that is what these 'truthers' want. To be recognized for their brilliant detective work, and their undying concern for the well-being of we commoners. I keep wondering exactly whom is being bamboozled. Or should that be 'who'. I could never figure out the objective case in sentences like that. Oh, well.
"And the Masons are part of the illuminati!"
"Oh, really? Have you ever attended a Masonic meeting, or do you know any Masons? Is that how you made this conclusion?"
Well, no...but look at all of this symbology!" "It's everywhere!"
"Uh-huh". "See the DaVinci Code one too many times, have you?"
Of course, this view of mine concerning conspiracy theorists isn't very popular out here. Which probably accounts for my site's relatively low hit history. Those unhappy with the things that are going on in the world want answers. That is why they are out here looking. They don't want me to tell them anything but that I know who is rogering them behind their back. And their patience is wearing thin. So any snake-oil salesman, paid or not, attracts their attention, I guess. They want someone to blame. And the more shadowy and secretive they are told that the perpetrators of this world-wide shit is...well, the more they feel that they have been taken advantage of by ruthless people that are not above-board. And that these people have secret handshakes and symbols...if you just look hard enough.
I understand this. I sympathize to a point. But there are those at 'alternative news' sites and opinion blogs that take advantage of this. And they are tracking mud on our clean floors. And you are letting them.
I recently read an article on Marilyn Monroe that answered more questions than it posed. If that is possible. There is more he-said-she-said in the piece than a holocaust expose'. And although I agree that there were a lot of shady goings-on concerning MM's career, spreading rumors about MKULTRA and some silly-assed theory of 'Presidential Monarchs" would be laughable to anyone with half a brain between their ears, if it didn't feed this childish fear monster that is 'conspiracy theory'. It is ironic that the author of this and other articles just as ridiculous calls themselves "vigilant citizen". I can see this person banging away at their keyboard, feverishly reading their previous paragraph and following the logical progression of a fairy tale. Then going back in to the piece afterward and googling other 'theorists' shite to back up their own masterpiece. Vigilant indeed. Oh dear. Surely, we are better than this?
Surely, we are smarter than this.
I really don't want to see this kind of junk become the standard. But what's a mother to do? Well, cull your reading habits for one. As you throw the talmud-vision in the shit can...you can also strike these types of sites off your daily reading list. But that's as may be.
Back to clean floors. Citizen journalism has its drawbacks obviously. As many as the old type of reportage. Each are subject to editorializing and agendas and advertising. All of these bother me.
But none more than vain editorializing under the guise of 'fact'. That is the biggest weapon the MSM uses against us. It should never be used out here. But for various reasons, usually vanity, used, it is. Constantly.
Now I can say that it is my opinion that a handful of blood-sucking khazars seized upon Marilyn and rode her for everything she was worth. And I can give you the tribal names and dates, but beyond that, I certainly cannot tell you what happened in that bungalow bedroom on the evening of the 5th of August in 1962. No one is left to tell you what actually transpired...nor would anyone have in 1962, I would wager(although that is speculation...not fact). So unless you are an eyewitness, have photographs, blood samples et al...shut the fuck up? Don't pose your inane theories as fact. We don't need that kind of journalism. Never did.
This goes for the Masonic Lodge, the non-existent 'Illuminati', devil worshipers, Lady Gaga's secret(well, not-so-secret)symbolic hand gestures and gowns, reptilian Queens and whatever else your 'vigilant' little fairy-tale brain can manufacture in your Mom's basement. K?
And stop tracking mud on our clean floors!
And tell the milkman, NO MORE CHEESE!
