Conspiracy Theorists - Considered New Cult /Agents of Disinformation - Free thinking is now considered cult behavior - includes quote from actual shil
Conspiracy Theorists are considered cult members now. I have visited some cult exiting websites and conspiracy theorists are considered the newest and biggest up and coming cult of the times. This reeks of propaganda AGAINST free-thinkers and gears toward totalitarianism. What do you all think? Personally, I am furious....

****
Article on conspirators as "Cult members" from a website titled "The Cult of Conspiracy Theorists" [link to www.opposingdigits.com]
The Cult of Conspiracy Theorists
The very name they choose exposes who they are... well kinda.

They tend to believe in theories as fact like any other religious group. We see them making statements about videos and documents such as "100% proof positive" when it comes to propaganda: just like Religious people. They have special ambiguous insider names for criminals such as; Illuminati, or NWO just like the Christians use Luciferian, and Satanic. They set up leaders for themselves for them to parrot and bring more followers to. They try to pass themselves off as enlightened beings while everyone else are "sheeple" to them. They will gobble up nonsense in an effort to seem more spiritually aware than their peers.

Church goers like to dress up, and Conspiracy theorists do to. They need their conspiracy theorist gear to show their lack of shame similar to how Christians are pressured into carrying their Bibles so others can see them to show that they're not ashamed. They have such faith in their beliefs that were passed down to them that they won't listen to your arguments and will try to appeal to your emotions like good Mormon Missionaries.

They want to choose for you who to vote for and support in politics. They align with the candidate that best suits their theories ignoring and blindly attacking anything negative about the politician. We see a parallel with this and Catholic Priests.

They hold rallies and protests that mimick tent meetings. Their leaders don megaphones and dark sunglasses to hide their tells. They chant, or sing in harmonious repetition. They want to be heard but don't want to listen. They antagonize their opponents with religious fervor. They are the chosen herd, and all others are lost.

They're afraid of symbols. Business's are demonized if their logo bears any resemblance to a pentagram, hexagram, nautilus, shell, hand, eye, triangle, pyramid, etc. They're like Jehovah's Witness's who are afraid of cross's and Christian literature.

They get disgusted with their family and friends who don't join their cult. It doesn't matter that they constantly use words that they don't even understand or can't accurately define themselves like; illuminati, amen, or satanic. After all; they're emotionally charged and doing the will of their leader who's making big bucks (and deserves every million) off of their recruiting efforts. Many alienate themselves from loved ones in an effort to avoid sound reason.

How can we be different? Learning the Rules of Disinformation is a good start. Don't just learn them.. look for their use in any debate. They empower people to better discern for themselves.

I'm a Libertarian Constitutionalist.

I don't give a shit what you do with your own life, whether you make it a success or a failure, that is the outcome of the choices you make, but please take responsibility for yourself and don't make ME pay for YOUR choices and we're all good.

Repeal the 17th Amendment and the Apportionment Act of 1911!

Thread: First steps down the road to a return to the Constitutional Republic that we were intended to be.

Restore the Republic.

It's a flower, not something to be feared.

Conspiracy theories find menace in contrails
By Traci Watson, USA TODAY

A new conspiracy theory sweeping the Internet and radio talk shows has set parts of the federal government on edge.

The theory: The white lines of condensed water vapor that jets leave in the sky, called contrails, are actually a toxic substance the government deliberately sprays on an unsuspecting populace.

Federal bureaucracies have gotten thousands of phone calls, e-mails and letters in recent years from people demanding to know what is being sprayed and why. Some of the missives are threatening.

It's impossible to tell how many supporters these ideas have attracted, but the people who believe them say they're tired of getting the brush-off from officials. And they're tired of health problems they blame on "spraying."

"This is blatant. This is in your face," says Philip Marie Sr., a retired nuclear quality engineer from Bartlett, N.H., who says the sky above his quiet town is often crisscrossed with "spray" trails.

"No one will address it," he says. "Everyone stonewalls this thing."

The situation Marie and others describe is straight out of The X-Files.

He and others report one day looking up at the sky and realizing that they were seeing abnormal contrails: contrails that lingered and spread into wispy clouds, multiple contrails arranged in tick-tack-toe-like grids or parallel lines, contrails being laid down by white planes without registration numbers.

Believers call these tracks "chemtrails." They say they don't know why the chemicals are being dropped, but that doesn't stop them from speculating.

Many guess that the federal government is trying to slow global warming with compounds that reflect sunlight into the sky. Some propose more ominous theories, such as a government campaign to weed out the old and sick.

Exasperated by persistent questions, the Environmental Protection Agency, NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration joined forces last fall to publish a fact sheet explaining the science of contrail formation. A few months earlier, the Air Force had put out its own fact sheet, which tries to refute its opponents' arguments point by point.

"If you try to pin these people down and refute things, it's, 'Well, you're just part of the conspiracy,' " says atmospheric scientist Patrick Minnis of NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. "Logic is not exactly a real selling point for most of them."

Nothing is "out there" except water vapor and ice crystals, say irritated scientists who study contrails. SHILL---> Some, such as Minnis, are outraged enough by the claims of chemtrail believers that they have trolled Internet chat rooms to correct misinformation or have gotten into arguments with callers.

"Conspiracy nonsense," snorts Kenneth Sassen, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Utah. "These things are at 30,000 to 40,000 feet in the atmosphere. They're tiny particles. They're not going to affect anyone."

The cloud-forming contrails that conspiracy theorists find so ominous are "perfectly natural," Minnis says. The odd grid and parallel-line patterns are easily explained as contrails blown together by the wind, scientists say.

17 TECHNIQUES FOR TRUTH SUPPRESSION
by David Martin, author of America's Dreyfus Affair

Strong, credible allegations of high-level criminal activity can bring down a government. When the government lacks an effective, fact-based defense, other techniques must be employed. The success of these techniques depends heavily upon a cooperative, compliant press and a mere token opposition party.

1. Dummy up. If it's not reported, if it's not news, it didn't happen.

2.Wax indignant. This is also known as the "how dare you?" gambit.

3.Characterize the charges as "rumors" or, better yet, "wild rumors." If, in spite of the news blackout, the public is still able to learn about the suspicious facts, it can only be through "rumors." (If they tend to believe the "rumors" it must be because they are simply "paranoid" or "hysterical.")

4. Knock down straw men. Deal only with the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Even better, create your own straw men. Make up wild rumors and give them lead play when you appear to debunk all the charges, real and fanciful alike.

5. Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nut," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.

6. Impugn motives. Attempt to marginalize the critics by suggesting strongly that they are not really interested in the truth but are simply pursuing a partisan political agenda or are out to make money (compared to over-compensated adherents to the government line who, presumably, are not).

7. Invoke authority. Here the controlled press and the sham opposition can be very useful.

8. Dismiss the charges as "old news."

9. Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

10. Characterize the crimes as impossibly complex and the truth as ultimately unknowable.

11. Reason backward, using the deductive method with a vengeance. With thoroughly rigorous deduction, troublesome evidence is irrelevant. For example: We have a completely free press. If they know of evidence that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) had prior knowledge of the Oklahoma City bombing they would have reported it. They haven't reported it, so there was no prior knowledge by the BATF. Another variation on this theme involves the likelihood of a conspiracy leaker and a press that would report the leak.

12. Require the skeptics to solve the crime completely. For example: If Vince Foster was murdered, who did it and why?

13. Change the subject. This technique includes creating and/or publicizing distractions.

14. Scantly report incriminating facts, and then make nothing of them. This is sometimes referred to as "bump and run" reporting.

15. Baldly and brazenly lie. A favorite way of doing this is to attribute the "facts" furnished the public to a plausible-sounding, but anonymous, source.

16. Expanding further on numbers 4 and 5, have your own stooges "expose" scandals and champion popular causes. Their job is to pre-empt real opponents and to play 99-yard football. A variation is to pay rich people for the job who will pretend to spend their own money.

17. Flood the Internet with agents. This is the answer to the question, "What could possibly motivate a person to spend hour upon hour on Internet news groups defending the government and/or the press and harassing genuine critics?" Don't the authorities have defenders enough in all the newspapers, magazines, radio, and television? One would think refusing to print critical letters and screening out serious callers or dumping them from radio talk shows would be control enough, but, obviously, it is not.
