Sometimes Conspiracy Theories Are Actually "Spoiler Alerts"

 12/13/21 Tom Knighton points to something that has long curioused my brain.  (Yes, it's a verb now.)  

In this day and age, if you want to dismiss anyone’s concern, you just call it a conspiracy theory. If you do, then you’ll completely dismiss the argument without even having to argue against it.

That’s the state of our nation right now, I’m afraid.

One of the companies most behind this was CNN. The “news” network opted to refer to talk of pedophilia by the elites as nothing more than conspiracy theories as well as outright lies.

Now, I’ve always tried to be cautious about accusing someone of lying. After all, if they believe it, it’s not a lie, even if it’s false. Being wrong isn’t be dishonest, after all. Lots of honest people say wrong stuff all the time. It doesn’t make them dishonest.

But CNN didn’t blink about calling a whole lot of people liars.

However, it seems that CNN might well have been hoping no one would look too deeply at their own dirty laundry.

He then points out how the bizarre Pizzagate conspiracy theory of political elites molesting children at a pizza place in DC suddenly cause head scratching when you look at the indictment of a CNN producer for sexual abuse of little girls for purposes that should have feminists doxxing him and seeking summary castration, if they actually believed their own often inflamed rhetoric, and the CIA employee pedophiles report, most of whom were not prosecuted.

Over the past 14 years, the Central Intelligence Agency has secretly amassed credible evidence that at least 10 of its employees and contractors committed sexual crimes involving children.

Though most of these cases were referred to US attorneys for prosecution, only one of the individuals was ever charged with a crime. Prosecutors sent the rest of the cases back to the CIA to handle internally, meaning few faced any consequences beyond the possible loss of their jobs and security clearances.

Oh, and the essential non-coverage of the Ghislane Maxwell trial.  

I have been intermittently working on a novel whose backstory involves the dissolution of Canada and the USA and the formation of the Confederation of Northwest North America caused by the revelation that the political elites keep themselves in power to enjoy the benefits of, and to keep secret their abuse of children.  From the time of Tiberius (if you believe Suetonius), this has been one of the "Why would you?" perqs of being a tyrant.
