Ayn Rand once said that the hardest thing to explain is ‘the glaringly evident which everyone has decided not to see'. I'm reminded of this every time some commentator, fueled by a deep vein of willful ignorance and moralistic posturing, patronisingly dismisses a conspiracy (theory) fact. And infuriated, although I try not to be because anger gets turned in on itself. Here's an example from down-to-earth common sense journalist Rod Liddle. At least that's his schtick. ‘These conspiracy theories really crack me up. How do they come up with such nonsense? Like this, what's it called - the Great Reset or something. You're going to love this, ho ho. They think that this cabal of global leaders meets in secret to take over the world. And they're using Covid to do it by bringing the world to edge of collapse! And by the way they knew Covid was coming before it ever appeared. Priceless! And - oh my aching sides! - they're using the vaccine to sterilise us and with microchips under our skin they'll know everything about us through something called a 5G surveillance grid- which will also cause Covid! - and eventually turn us into human/machine hybrids. It's too funny, I can't go on'.
Ok, I'm hamming this up a bit but this in essence is what Liddle wrote in a recent edition of The Spectator. In the same edition Douglas Murray patronisingly instructs us plebs to accept that Trump lost the election, to understand - should our limited intellects permit - that there was no evidence of fraud and that the result was supported by every court that heard the case. In the same edition Mary Wakefield dismissed those who believed in election fraud as ‘deluded cultists who need psychiatric care'. Bear in mind that these excerpts are just from a single edition of a supposedly right-wing conservative publication.
It's deeply annoying.
Because the truth about those insane conspiracy theories is hiding in plain sight. Even a journalist or a sociology professor could find and understand it. It's that blatant. And the truth is that the so-called conspiracy theories are actually conspiracy facts. The in-your-face blatancy of the fraud perpetrated during the 2020 American Presidential Election would make a Third World dictator blush. And no, the courts did not reject claims of fraud, they refused to hear them. Big difference, dummy. As for Liddle, books have been written about the Great Reset by the very villains behind the project. And yes, they openly admit their plans to fundamentally transform the world and, yes, they also predict that we will evolve into human/machine hybrids.
Look, up to a point I can accept the MSM and Big Pharma whores lying through their expensively whitened teeth. That's their job after all and we all must make a living. However it does make my blood boil to be patronisingly patted on the head and dismissed by those supercilious twats, not caring enough to know nor knowing enough to care about the truth. I detest their smug virtue signaling snarkiness as they parade their superficial vacuous worthless opinions as superior wisdom.
God grant me patience.
