Here’s a thought experiment for you. Just for one brief moment, try to imagine that you are a troofer. And you’re not just in it for the chemtrails—you believe the whole package.
You think that the world is controlled by a secret cabal of (take your choice) reptilians, Freemasons, Jews, the Illuminati.
Doesn’t matter what you call them, for in addition to ruling the world and keeping the little people such as yourself in metaphorical chains, these mysterious rulers have one over-riding feature: they are paedophiles who eat babies, drink their blood for ritual and/or recreational purposes, rape small children on an industrial scale, and control their minds so that they cannot talk about it.
Oh, and they are preternaturally tidy, as well. They do such a good job of cleaning up after themselves that no one is ever able to find any evidence of their nasty activities.
You believe (don’t worry, it’s just for a few more minutes) that these abominable creatures aren’t happy merely with controlling everything which happens in the world, but they have a nasty habit of sending their minions (and they have a LOT of minions) round to collect babies and children, which they use in their (literally) diabolical activities.
Not only do these horrible people (or reptiles, or whatever) control the world and steal babies and children, but they also keep a watchful eye on everyone.
And by “everyone” we mean you. They monitor your emails, they read your Facebook, they know the last time you went to the toilet, and what you had for supper last night.
Oh, and one last thing: you also believe that because of your own courageous actions in “outing” the evil Satanic paedophile baby-eating child-raping mind-destroying overlords, they have it in for you. They are constantly messing with your computer and cutting off your wifi just when you get to the important parts of your conversations, so you know they must be onto you.
Just keep pretending that you actually, seriously believe that all of this is true.
No, we take that back. You don’t just believe it, you know it in your bones, the way you know that up is up, down is down, and the sky is blue.
With us so far? Good.
All right, so now that you are bona fide, dyed-in-the-wool, fully believing troofer, can you explain something to us?
Why on earth do you keep putting pictures and videos of your children and families on the internet?
We are quite serious here.
We’ve been thinking about what it might mean to believe that some secret cabal of nasties was out to harm us or our families, and all of us agreed: if we really thought that was the case, we probably wouldn’t even have a Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube account, let alone post cute pics of little Oswald blowing bubbles, or baby Cressida’s first smile.
We certainly wouldn’t put up pictures of our entire families, no matter how adorable, handsome, or brilliant we thought they were. In fact, we probably wouldn’t even put up pictures of ourselves, because why give the powers-that-be a helping hand?
So we are left to wonder: do these people actually believe what they claim to believe?
Because these are far from the only pictures of children and entire families we’ve encountered in our travels.
We don’t believe in the baby-eating Satanic paedophile cabal, but we do believe in protecting the privacy of people’s families, so we’ve done these people the courtesy of blanking out their kids’ and other family members’ faces.
But if these and other troofers really do believe that they and their families are under constant surveillance by people who plan to steal, rape, or murder them or their children, what in hell do they think they’re doing?
