Oops, the interview is only 30 minutes (between 30:00 and 60:00) and that link was supposed to start at the start of the interview but didn't. But yes, the article I linked to in my post is the article they're talking about. :p

I just learned that two people pretty much torched their entire online history after the Biden election, apparently concerned that their online history would harm them.

One of them was traveling more often because flights were cheap and they thought that could prevent COVID symptoms with vitamin D and Zinc. I was looking them up because I was wondering if they were doing OK.

A conspiracy theorising friend of mine sent me this link, and I thought it might be of general interest to you guys and guyettes.

On The Psychology Of The Conspiracy Denier | Reporting for Beauty.

From the linkMassive criminal conspiracies exist. The evidence is overwhelming. The scope of those currently underway is unknown, but there is no reason to imagine, in the new global age, that the sociopathic quest for power or the possession of the resources required to move towards it is diminishing. Certainly not while dissent is mocked and censored into silence by gatekeepers, ‘useful idiots’, and conspiracy deniers, who are, in fact, directly colluding with the sociopathic agenda through their unrelenting attack on those who would shine a light on wrongdoing. It is every humane being's urgent responsibility to expose sociopathic agendas wherever they exist - never to attack those who seek to do so. Now, more than ever, it is time to put away childish things, and childish impulses, and to stand up as adults to protect the future of the actual children who have no choice but to trust us with their lives.

Honestly, I skimmed most of that because a) I'm supposed to be doing something else, and b) that writing style was really getting on my nerves, but it's kind of telling that they seem to leave out so many specifics.

I have actually seen conspiracy deniers who seemed to make that a kneejerk reaction, as though you'd have to be deranged to believe any conspiracy at all. (And even that characterization of 'conspiracy theorist' as a default nutjob was a sort of conspiracy in that it was introduced as a talking point by the Warren Commission, if I'm remembering it right.)

Of course there are conspiracies, and some of them are really wild. There are some we know about only after decades, and of course there are ongoing ones that won't come to light for a while, and some that will never be public knowledge. No reasonable person would deny that.

But what conspiracies are they talking about here?

And there are the conspiracies that are played out right in the open, in the bills presented to the Georgia senate and the US Congress and everywhere. And are denied by the people with their names on those bills.

(I skimmed the article even more than pea did.)

Wait wut? That has to be parody right?

The general argument seems to be that ‘conspiracies have existed thus presume conspiracy.’
My general rebuttal to taking that seriously would be, ‘we only know that conspiracies have existed because they are bad, leaky and often failed. That they appear to be all around just shows that most people suck at conspiracies.’

On the only hand it could be asshole-pedanticism where it’s true “Conspiracies” that is plans by a group to do unlawful things in secret, do indeed happen all the time, but most are like the “Hey dude, buy us some beer with this fake $20 and you can keep the change.” kind of conspiracy.

Indeed, the masks seem to have struck a specific conservative nerve where they all see themselves as impure and unclean and the mask is just too much of an acknowledgement. They’re all so ready to take offense at the slightest suggestion they might be unclean as if you are blaming their personal character for being sick.

It’s as if conservative christian values were built around shame or something.

Washington, we have a problem — politically, informationally and societally — when 15 percent of Americans agree with the QAnon statement that the U.S. government, media and financial worlds “are controlled by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who run a global child sex trafficking operation.”

Or when 20 percent agree with this statement: “There is a storm coming soon that will sweep away the elites in power and restore the rightful leaders.”

Or when another 15 percent agree that “Because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.”
Study finds nearly one-in-five Americans believe QAnon conspiracy theories

15 to 20 percent is a lot of people

One of the few good things about violent right wing militias is they are way more interested in fighting others than really fighting for a cause. Leading them to strike out and kill fellow authoritarians in a disorganized manner.

This was an interesting report on local Boogaloo boys,
A far-right militia came to Oakland to attack police last year

Killed two cops, taken into custody.In the aftermath of the shooting, rumors spread among law enforcement and in the media that leftist “Antifa” or Black Lives Matter protesters were responsible. But the opposite was true.

Several days after Underwood’s murder, Air Force Sergeant Steven Carrillo was identified as the alleged shooter, and Robert Justus as his driver. According to court records, Carrillo had his own motives. He had radicalized himself online in a quasi-libertarian, anti-government movement called the Boogaloo Boys, which sought to kick off a second civil war through confrontations with the authorities. A manhunt ensued and officers located Carrillo at his family’s residence in the Santa Cruz Mountains. But Carrillo was waiting in ready; a bloody shootout ensued, leaving a county sheriff’s deputy dead and two more cops wounded before Carrillo was taken into custody.
——
Carrillo allegedly belonged to a small self-styled militia affiliated with the Boogaloo movement. Calling themselves the “1st Detachment, 1st California Grizzly Scouts,” the violent extremist organization was founded in Spring 2020 by 29-year-old private security contractor and Turlock resident Jesse Alexander Rush, who went by the alias “Grizzly Actual.” The group’s goal, according to federal prosecutors, was to attack law enforcement, and when last year’s protests for racial justice started, Carrillo allegedly decided it was time to assassinate police officers. He and others chose Oakland as their target in order to use the city’s chaotic protests as cover, according to Carrillo and Justus’s indictments.

Kid Gloves for white terroristsDespite the objections of federal prosecutors, Rush, Miksch, and Blancas were released on bond in April. Rush is at his home in Turlock on a $50,000 waiver co-signed by his wife, the same residence from which federal agents recovered an arsenal of weapons and tactical equipment. Miksch is currently residing with his parents in San Lorenzo on a $25,000 bond co-signed by his father. Their next court date is July 13, 2021. Carrillo is being held at Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail awaiting trial.

So yes, they planned and then partially executed attacks on the government in hopes of starting a civil war, and their terrorist cell leader has be remanded to his wife’s custody like he’s her child, while the government works to play down this assault as just boys being boys.

I found it especially interesting how much of their planning and training was all big-talk. All this “I’ve been trained by the army, to be a killing machine” talk and what ended up happening? An ambush style drive by, and tons of chatter linking themselves with it.

Only the best.
Capitol rioter accompanied members of Congress on trip to US-Mexico border - CNNPolitics
CNN Anthony Aguero, a close ally of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can be seen in videos and photos with Republican members of Congress who traveled to a route along the border frequented by migrants on Tuesday night. CNN's KFile previously reported that Aguero went into the Capitol during the January 6 riot and cheered and justified the break-in.
———
Aguero told his viewers that the Border Patrol was "herding" immigrants crossing the border into a particular location, saying, "We're about to catch them all as they basically come out of the woodworks."
———
In one disturbing clip filmed by Aguero in April 2019 that appears in the PBS documentary "Targeting El Paso," Aguero can be heard screaming at migrants crossing the border and seen shining a light on migrants' faces. In the clip, Aguero tells a group of migrants they "come out like roaches, out of everywhere." According to PBS, the clip was viewed 160,000 times before Aguero deleted it from Facebook.

He also has a history of criminal violence, according to online court records. In 2010, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor family violence assault causing serious bodily injury. In 2015, he was convicted of felony vehicular assault while intoxicated and sentenced to two years in Texas state prison.

Oh I’m sure this man who has attacked family members, injured someone while drunk driving, and sees other humans as cockroaches to be exterminated certainly isn’t going to one day murder those around him due to his anger issues cultivated by conservatives.

Despite clear evidence of his criminal behavior at the capitol, he has yet to be arrested or charged.
