NY Times:How to Talk to Friends and Family Who Share Conspiracy Theories
Fringe movements will persist. Here’s how to help.
By CHARLIE WARZEL
REBUTTAL BY Luis T
No matter how many shells the Judenpresse Armada fires at us, we “conspiracy theorists” ™ not only remain afloat but — as even the Times acknowledges — we continue to grow our ranks with each passing day. As a public service to the bewildered boobs who worship “the paper of record” and Fake News in general, Times scribbler Charlie Warzel has so graciously taken it upon himself to put together a tutorial on “how to help” the viral crazies now popping in every family and circle of friends.
Warzel sets forth six strategies that normies should use to “help” their crazy loved ones — and he prefaces his advice with the following word of caution about dealing with “conspiracy theorists” ™ —
“Reminder: This advice pertains to friends or relatives with whom you are already close and who are not demonstrating unstable or violent behavior. It’s important to exercise restraint and good judgment in all cases.”
Fuck you Weasel. It’s the Left that’s “unstable” and “violent,” not us. Let’s review and rebut these six pieces of Warzel’s excrement.
1. Ask Where the Information is Coming From.
Rebuttal:Genetic Fallacy Alert! Genetic Fallacy Alert! It doesn’t matter where the data comes from. What matters is whether a thing is true, or whether it is false. Although it is perfectly natural and logical to be skeptical of information coming from a dubious source; a wise man never automatically disregards data based on source alone. Never ask: “Where did you read this?” — Always ask: Is this true — and can it be independently confirmed or debunked?
2. Create Some Cognitive Dissonance — (*By acknowledging that certain past conspiracies were real and have been exposed — and then asking why the conspiracy in question has not been exposed by “whistle-blowers”).
There are indeed whistle-blowers usually associated with the big conspiracy of (fill-in-the-blank). But because the press itself is part of the Deep State, you may not always come to know about it. Why would you assume that just because a certain whistle-blower or victim has been ignored by the corrupted corporate media, that he or she does not exist or is not legitimate? Do you blindly worship the Fake News?
3. Debunking is Difficult — (*Because people form emotional attachments to their beliefs.)
That works both ways, Weasel. People, in general, regardless of intelligence or “education,” are slow to change their minds. But what strikes me about you Q Anon / Satanist “debunkers” is that you NEVER even attempt to “debunk” the data — such as the disgusting child-abuse artwork preferred by the Podesta Brothers — or the shocking images and texts posted on social media by the perverted PizzaGate clique. Are those stomach-turning images and posts that have so repulsed so many millions of people real — or are they not real? Is the Hunter Biden laptop real, or is it not real? Please answer.
4. Don’t Debate on Facebook — (too confrontational)
Rebuttal: Why not, Mr. Weasel? I’ve seen in-person “debates” between normies and truthers get pretty nasty (been there myself!). Could your advice to avoid Facebook debates have anything to do with the fact that online exchanges allow a truther — who may not be so articulate or well-versed — to instantly drop a link to one of the countless excellent articles and videos out there which provide powerful proofs for “conspiracy theories” ™. Indeed, some of the assigned anti-conspiracy monitors at You Tube were themselves converted by some of the very videos they were tasked with reviewing for censorship! Weasel is trying to prevent naive “debunkers” from fighting in a highly populated arena more favorable to truthers.
5. Mocking and Scolding Won’t Work
Rebuttal: You see that? Behind our backs, he mocks us and tells our normie friends & family that we are essentially insane little children in need of an “intervention” — but then instructs them to conceal their scorn from us — as if we astute “empaths” wouldn’t be able to instinctively sense and be properly offended by the concealed condescension of these sneaky, snarky, back-stabbing mental midgets in our midst! Oh that just does wonders for a relationship (been there too!) eh, Weasel? Typical manipulative Marxist.
6.Know When to Walk Away.
There it is!!! The payoff punch — the truth at last!
Weasel knows bloody damn well that once one has contracted the truth-virus, there’s no going back to the overlapping tyrannical Kingdoms of Libtardia and Normiedom. It is a mental impossibility — notwithstanding these FAKE stories we hear about “reformed” conspiracy cultists who “have a warning for others.” Hence, Warzel’s previous five pieces of advice were all just part of a grand smoke-screen. What this devious (((devil))) really wants is for people to “walk away” and — as a natural consequence in many cases — alienate the truther from “polite company” and even family gatherings.
In his own words, while quoting a “conspiracy researcher” named — get this — Mike Rothschild(cough cough):
“If you have legitimate concerns about their health and safety, that is usually a job for professionals. In some cases, it’s important to realize there may be little you can do in the moment, some cautioned. Mr. Rothschild told me: “If you have to, be ready to walk away from them. There comes a point where you may not be able to have that instability in your life.’”
Too late for you Bolshevik bastards to isolate this writer, Mr. Weasel and Mr. Rothschild. You see, though I will tolerate disagreement — I’ve already distanced myself from anyone and everyone who actually thinks me mad — and with zero regrets (yet with deep and persistent sorrow).
