Conspiracy Theories Fake News The BBC

How should you talk to friends and relatives who believe conspiracy theories

I love this. The BBC have advise on how you should talk to anyone believing in conspiracy theories
from their Specialist disinformation reporter Marianna Spring. I know, the BBC has a Specialist
disinformation reporter, there hasn’t been much to laugh about this year so thank you BBC for
making me laugh so hard it hurt.

Alright then, lets look critically at this wonderful piece of journalism.

It starts on a negative –

You’re dreading the moment“.

Already the reader has associated dread with conspiracies.

As your uncle passes the roast potatoes, he casually mentions that a coronavirus vaccine will be used to inject
microchips into our bodies to track us.”.

Look at the psychology being used here. “he casually mentions”.
To be casual implies no real thought or effort has been put in. Casual wear is something smartish
you just throw on. A casual football fan may watch a football match but isn’t really interested in
it and certainly has no devotion to it. And why hasn’t Uncle roast potatoes provided a link to ID2020
and the many papers or video clips of the sainted Bill Gates talking of a micro dot being implanted
through vaccinations?

Marianna Spring continues:
“Or maybe it’s that point when a friend, after a couple of pints, starts talking about how Covid-19
“doesn’t exist”. Or when pudding is ruined as a long-lost cousin starts spinning lurid tales about
QAnon and elite Satanists eating babies.”

A “friend, after a couple of pints”. So he is not thinking clearly, his thoughts clouded by alcohol.
Maybe he’s drunk?

pudding is ruined”. Damn those conspiracy theories, they’ll ruin your pudding every time.

lurid tales“. Take a moment. Look at each word there and understand what they mean.
Why would someone use them together in a sentence? When they are together in a
sentence they conjure an image of a gruesome fantasy. Marianna tells us what this
gruesome fantasy is: “QAnon and elite Satanists eating babies.”. Ever wondered what
desperation looks like? Now you know.

QAnon – According to Wikipedia is “a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory
alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking
ring.”. Wikipedia, an online source of knowledge that is owned by a cabal of Satan-worshipping
pedophiles. Actually i don’t know if that is true but what i do know is that if you are after any
sort of truth you steer clear of Wikipedia and the BBC.

You know, i’m sure there are conspiracy theories that say elite Satanists are eating babies but,
now here’s the weird thing about conspiracy theories, there isn’t a single conspiracy theorist
or website that forces you in to believing their claims. They provide information and leave
it up to you to believe it or not. I know, it’s weird, bloody strange, they treat you like adults
capable of deciding things for yourself. Completely cuckoo nutjob fruitcakes.

So how do you talk to people about conspiracy theories without ruining Christmas?

The pudding’s gone, ruined by conspiracy theories but if that wasn’t bad enough the
conspiracy theories are trying to ruin Christmas. Mark Drakeford and his Tier 4
lockdown of an entire country over Christmas has done far more to ruin and
completely destroy Christmas for thousands of families. I wonder when the
BBC will run a hit piece on that?

Around this point in Marianna Spring’s well researched post she includes a photo of
two fingers with penned on faces wearing Christmas hats back-to-back not talking to each
other. Miss Spring likes to include a lot of psychology in her writings, likes to steer you in
the direction she wants you to go. I can only think that with these unhappy fingers and the 3
miserable looking fingers further down the page she is telling the reader precisely who this
piece is directed at and it isn’t directed at any adults who have any common-sense and even
a smidgen of intelligence.
Still, for anyone who has an active brain cell these BBC stories are entertaining…

My number one rule would be to not spoil Christmas,” says Mick West, author of Escaping
the Rabbit Hole“. Nice plug for your book there Mickey boy.
Mick West. Christ it’s hard to believe things like this exist. Here’s a “man” that has spent over
a decade debunking false conspiracy theories. Good on you Mick. May i make a suggestion
though? Start debunking the true conspiracy theories like, oh i don’t know, the outrageous
conspiracy theory started in 2010 about the elites using the excuse of a coronavirus outbreak
to begin ushering in a New World Order in 2020.

And if you didn’t think that the link in Marianna’s masterpiece could get any weaker than
Mick “The Debunker” West, let me introduce you to 38 year old Catherine.
Or rather let Marianna introduce her.

Catherine from the Isle of Wight understands that better than most.
The 38-year-old used to be a big believer in conspiracies about vaccines being used to
deliberately harm people. She’s since rejected such claims.

I like this game, let’s try it.

“Robert is 26 and lives in Brighton. He used to be a big believer in vaccinations.
But Robert did a little research and now rejects claims that vaccines are safe and good”.

See how easy that was. Who is Robert? Where is the proof Robert even exist.
Please make sure you are sitting down for this… I made Robert up. Crafty i know.

Let me point you to a real person who has something to say about vaccines.
Megan Egidi is just one parent among thousands who wish to warn other
parents of the dangers of vaccinations after their child died after receiving a
vaccination. A real person with a real, heartbreaking story to tell.

The BBC’s experts. Yes of course Marianna manages to wheel out experts to back up
her little stories. Funny how the thousands of experts around the world are ignored
if their views go against the propaganda machine.
I’ll counter Marianna’s experts with a few of my own.

Anyone reading this is encouraged to make a note of every experts name in the video link
i provided and check their Wikipedia page. Then go check out any “fact checking” website
out there and see what they have to say about the video i linked to. Now go check out
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Awarded Grants page.
Bill Gates, the man driving the COVID fear story, the man heavily invested in vaccines,
the man who told the world in 2015 that we can reduce the worlds population through
vaccinations and health care, go check out just how many pies this scabby little man has
his boney finger in. He owns the BBC. He owns fact checking sites. He owns just about
every University in the UK. He owns Medical Institutions and experts around the world.

If you have no mind of your own and have to constantly be told what to do and really want
to live your life in constant fear then by all means go visit the BBC website and watch their
propaganda, sorry “News”. But look carefully at everything the BBC write and listen
carefully to everything they say. They ARE telling you what to think. I don’t care what anyone
says, that is propaganda and that is dangerous, far more dangerous than any conspiracy theory.

Lovely piece.

The BBC is nothing more than a clown show.

Stop funding the BBC and cancel your TV license.

Excellent break down of mainstream drivel.

Amazing how the truth always makes sense and doesn’t
have to hide behind psychology and name calling.

Stopped paying my license this year.
You can always tell the people who watch BBC news, they
are scared little people who never make any sense and are
incapable of listening to reason.

Every mainstream news site has their own Marianna Spring
and if that doesn’t tell you anything then nothing will.

Good post, enjoyed reading that 🙂

Dollar Dime is right, the fact that mainstream try to
steer people in the direction of their propaganda should
be a warning to everyone. All the main news sites around the
world only parrot 1 official narrative so there is only 1 point
of view that is important. That is dangerous, it’s brainwashing
and it’s propaganda.
