Breaking Woo News: Illuminati are giving up planned global genocide.

The CT community is up in arms over the Illuminati's apparent revelation that they have decided to not continue their plans to commit a global genocide and kill us all. This news brought to us by Benjamin Fulford and Leo Zagami, both full fledged 100% wooists. Fulford claims he negotiated with the imaginary Illuminati through Leo Zagami, who claims he is a 33rd degree freemason.

This is so hilarious on so many levels. First, we have a organization that does not exist (the Illuminati) and is accused of planning to commit global genocide and yet with all the power in the world still has done it after all this time. Second, we have two wooists getting together and claiming, through their imaginary conversations with this imaginary group, that they have now been convinced to help the world.

Finally, neither of these two have absolutely any evidence or credentials what so ever. Leo Zagami is well known in freemasonry as someone who has for years been prostituting himself for CT fame by claiming hes a high level freemason, when in truth he was never in the Scottish Rite (never got the 33rd degree, although even if he did it wouldn't mean anything) and while he was at one time in a real masonic lodge he was unceremoniously kicked out for his delusions of grandeur (since freemasonry is real and the Illuminati is not).

And yet, some of the CTs are believing it. As always, I am amazed by the stupidity. Video is here:

I'd almost be willing to bet it went something like this:

Woos: Will you agree to not kill us all?
Rich Nobody: OK, sure, whatever.

I think some of these guys need to leave the LARPing in the forest out behind the community center.

Either that or their DM needs to explain to them that the game ends at some point.

Well, im happy to hear this. Allthough im for the plans end goal, i allways thought it a bit impractical and difficult to implement. The marketing plan had some really big holes in it, and the organisation of it was quite flimsy.

OK, so I trasncribed scary Italian guy's self introduction. Keep in mind these are the first words out of his mouth.

Scary Guy: Yes, eh, my name is Leo Lyon Zagami. I'm, eh, the Prince of Santalia. I'm, eh, an Italian aristocrat connected to the sacred Roman Empire. I am the Grandmaster of [Translated best as I can because accent marks are hard to type][The order of the universal unicorns] founded in the Principality of Monaco in 1999, and I'm here representign also the Academy of the Illuminati which resides in the Piatza de Espania 35 and also the Italian Freemason of the ancient and accepted Scottish rite of the piatza de Jesu 33rd degree.



Who the **** introduces themselves that way without terrifying people?

Conspiracy theorists who get off on imaginary organizations, of course! The Scottish Rite of the piatza de Jesu is a imaginary organization, but OMG ITS A 33RD DEGREE MASON HE MUST BE ILLUMINATI.

Forgive me but every time I run across Leo I end up ranting...

(rant)
I always thought the conspiracy lunacy would go through the roof when they found a real 33rd degree mason (there are thousands of them since its really not a big deal) who has mental illness or a sick sense of humor and started telling them what they want to hear. But hell, why go find a legitimate 33rd degree mason to project your irrational fears on when you'll believe anyone who claims the honor?

Leo Zagami isn't even a freemason anymore. You can be a "legitimate" freemason as long as you've been through the three degrees and have not committed any offense that was egregious enough to get you expelled. Even people who go through the degrees and never pay dues for the rest of their life are legitimate masons, even if they never go to another lodge for the rest of their days. But Zagami holds the rare honor of being expelled formally from the United Grand Lodge of England after only two years of being a member - he didn't even show up for his hearing. The charges against him were a mile long. Given the expulsion procedures can take years to go through because of all the investigating and formalities, this means someone filed charges against him almost immediately upon joining a regular lodge.

And yet despite all this information, freely available on the interwebs, the conspiracy theorists still Believe in him.

Well, yeah, if he was even too evil for the Masons, he must really be in the know!

My God. Imagine going to your lodge, wanting to have a night away from the wife and kids and having to converse with that self important deluded tit all night. I bet the next week he was the only one who showed up at the lodge while other masons secretly met at the pub down the road.
The first secret meeting of any lodge since WWII, just to avoid having to talk to this joker.

Why was he kicked out specifically?

I'd say its a good bet that he drove the lodge insane - it isn't exactly a grand feat to fool a masonic interview committee, but apparently as soon as he started going through the degrees the delusions of grandeur started. Every interview committee I've seen starts out with debunking and putting to rest all the CT nonsense so no one joins thinking they will get some material gain out of it, but apparently Leo heard all that and joined anyways - and when he found no Illuminati and riches he began making it up.

He was specifically kicked out because the judge in the masonic trial that was held over him found him guilty on at least one egregious count of "conduct unbecoming of a mason." If I remember correctly there were lots of sub charges too, basically variations of "this guy is using the name of freemasonry to try to make money and cater to the woo crowd."

Now who is going to tell Jones? I just can't bare to see him get depressed so someone else will have to do it. Maybe UC is up for giving him another call.

If my passing knowledge of the masons is anything to go by, there was indeed a secret plan to genocide all non-masons in the world.

But D-day was on Bridge night, and the wife didn't let them out of the house, so it was cancelled.

I am playing Team Fortress 2 on XBOX Live and that Italian guy in the nice suite looks and talks like the spy in the game.
Its no coincidence that he looks like a spy from a video game so I think this video is authentic which in turn proves 9-11 was an inside job.

I think it is no coincidence that he made an effort to look like a video-game spy.

If he'd been impersonating a scientist, he's shown up in a white coat, carrying a clipboard and sporting an Einstein hairdo.

And you know what? The truthers would have bought it.
