Another dangerous lunatic from Canada unveiled

Yesterday we talked about Canadian Hoaxtead mobster Kane Slater, and his criminally irresponsible allegations that an indoor playground in Ottawa, Canada, is somehow linked to the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. As it turns out, the original source of Kane’s allegations is a blog called “Heavy Truth”, written by someone who seems to live in Ottawa. A…

Finally, a conspiracy theory we can believe in

It’s been said before: just because a great many conspiracy theories are bunkum doesn’t mean that all of them are. Many of us are old enough to remember, for instance, the Watergate scandal, a conspiracy which rocked the U.S. government to its foundations, and seriously damaged public trust in the presidency. There’s also evidence that…

The unbearable hypocrisy of Troofers

Yesterday we talked about the ways in which troofers in general, and True Believers in the Hampstead and/or Pizzagate SRA cults in particular, act in ways which resemble cult behaviour. These groups display cult-like compliance with a set of beliefs and assumptions; they stifle any dissent which might challenge the group’s sense of specialness; and…

All just a little bit of history repeating

When the Hampstead SRA hoax was in its infancy—that is, after Sabine had released the videos of RD’s children but before Mrs Justice Pauffley issued her judgement on the fact-finding hearing—Hoaxtead mobsters in training had a very nasty habit: they would trawl the Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts of anyone unfortunate enough to have been…

Why evidence doesn’t matter to troofers

When you’re a Hoaxtead pusher, some arguments just never get old. For instance: how often have we heard the chestnut about “if the accused cult members in Hampstead were really innocent, why didn’t they just drop their drawers in public and show the world their lack of tattoos?”

‘Hard evidence’ in Hoaxtead and Pizzagate

The other day, one of our team members came across this interesting bit of internet lore concerning “Pizzagate”. It reads, “You can say…”Aliens exist”, “Chemtrails are real”, “9/11 was an inside job”, “Elvis is alive”, “Obama is a shape-shifting lizard person”. But if you discover HARD EVIDENCE of a child trafficking ring operated by the…

The Walter Mitty world of conspiritainment

It’s been two weeks since Edgar Maddison Welch, armed with an assault rifle and a handgun, commandeered a pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C. in a fruitless hunt for evidence of a “child sex slave ring”. On 16 December, Mr Welch pleaded “not guilty” to a federal count of interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition,…

Fake news on Facebook: Are we stuck with it?

Ever since the U.S. elections last month, the topic of fake news has been in the headlines almost daily. In particular, following the election of Donald Trump, Facebook came in for some harsh criticism for having allowed false stories to circulate; many critics believe such stories might have influenced the outcome of the election. “Pizzagate”…
