Not been reading the thread, but has anybody mentioned that CORONA is 6 letters and if you count C as the third letter in the alphabet and sum it up through the word, it gets to 66? Just saying and I think we have to credit the world's first neon-nazi, who isn't AA but DI Schulz, for that insight.

Interesting POV. I actually get to 656 there. Which is close. Like Sabine Kraut Hitler or something. I think I'll just go to sleep as well.

Oh, but we also must notice that the day that the "crisis" will be over, allegedly, the Monday after the weekend after "Easter", is 420, also known as Uncle Adi's birthday, and as the Stoner Holiday. Stay strong!

It has only come to the attention of the Danish media today, but this conspiracy theory appears to have become radicalized in the last few days:

Has anyone commented on this? A completely nutterbutter guy who was 'suspicious' of the USNS Mercy decided to hijack a train to ram it. The train ended up off the rails 250 yards away from the Mercy.

https://www.newser.com/story/288994/...Yun2EK3Ab0Zzhs

I did not know that train derailment was a specific separate crime.

I think that this may be the first domestic terror attack based on conspiracy theories about the virus.

Moreno acknowledged in two separate interviews with law enforcement that he intentionally derailed and crashed the train near the Mercy, according to the criminal complaint.

......

In an interview with FBI agents, Moreno stated that "he did it out of the desire to 'wake people up,'" according to an affidavit.
Wake up, sheeple.

Is there an app, you know, like wisdomofchopra, where you can access random images and factoids and construct your own conspiracy theory by linking them together?
If not, there ought to be.
I'm red/green colorblind and I can't make any sense of that. Red and green color blind people see yellow? Everyone sees yellow. Red/green colorblind people actually see red and green. I don't mistake them for yellow. I just tend to mistake subtler shades of red and green for each other. Or I think light greens and pinks or dark greens and reds are actually grey because I can't see the redness or greenness.

There are two kinds of conspiracy theorists - alarmists, and denialists. This is an example of the latter.

Denialists refuse to accept the truth because it is inconvenient to them. They fear having to change their behavior to deal with a new situation. The answer? Simply deny that it exists!

But this guy is worse. He admits that even if it is real he won't treat it with respect. He would rather die than bow down to the virus! (as if it cared). But at least he is being honest. Most deniers have the same motives, but dare not admit to it because that would destroy the lie they tell themselves.

Alarmists are the opposite. They invent 'truths' that don't exist, because they want them to. The motivation is also different. Far from being fearful of change, these conspiracy theorists desire something new that will upset our boring ordinary lives.

There is an interesting parallel between this and their political views. Denialists tend to be conservative, whereas alarmists are more often 'liberal'. And it is no coincidence. Conservatives fear change, liberals welcome it. Why? Because they have different brains.

Once you recognize the connection it is easy to predict who will promote one kind of conspiracy or the other. Certain posters here are so predictable that it's not even a surprise when they do it.

Conspiracy theorists are torching cell phone towers in the UK in response to rumors that 5G causes or spreads coronavirus, maybe by suppressing our immune system.

The Bastards are abusing phone company workers as well.

Early on, right wing political hacks like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Candice Owens dismissed the virus as a liberal hoax designed to make Trump look bad. Since Trump seems to now realize its real some of his followers have abandoned the conspiracy beliefs- but many have not. I don't know how many are trolls but Iost count the number of people on Twitter and YouTube posts who think the global shutdown is a conspiracy of communists to topple capitalism.
Tonight I engaged with several who insisted the sick and grieving relatives are paid crisis actors. I can't tell how many of these conspiracy theorists really believe their lunatic perceptions and how many are just trolls pretending to be conspiracy theorists. They're out there

They already blamed jews. There is video going on in conspiracy circles that accuses Israel of making it as biological weapon.
