We want to destroy America.  Watch our dumbass movie.  We are the destroyers of worlds, the brainless twats of America.

The film alleges, among other things, that Hollywood is run by Satanic pedophilia rings that distribute propaganda through films like Zoolander, the music videos of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and a discreet set of symbols, including the words "television" (tell-a-vision), "channel" (psychic communication), and "Hollywood" (named, they say, for the holly plant-which is poisonous and was, of course, once used in Druid rituals).


For those of us who have spent our careers working in 'Hollywood' we say: "Yes, now what's your point?"

Funny.  However right wing morons don't get comedy, irony, or anything else.  So, not really funny.

They did stupid shiat like that on the kkk show on public access in San Diego back in the day.  Like take a can of Ajax cleaner and interpret all the different markings on it as "Zionist code."  The whole time with these weird sadistic sneers on their faces and in their tone.

Much like "reality," the word "documentary" lost its true meaning long ago. It used to mean "a show or movie in which most of the information presented can be documented."

Now it just means "here's some bullshiat I threw together, watch at your own risk."

...best known for starring in MTV's Teen Mom 2-until she was fired when her husband shot and killed their pet dog-

...the film has spread through the platforms of right-wing influencers like Evans,...


it's just all so stupid

Not like "oh, hahah, that's stupid." but more like "the ice pick punctured the orbital socket and is embedded in the frontal lobe" stupid.

I see the words "pedophilia documentary"[1] and I think of this:

Brass Eye s01e07 Paedogeddon! Special Full
Youtube 9rGI_-nKoJc


(One - of many - reasons I'll always think British satire is better than American :)

[1] Which, on reflection, sounds like the name of a background character in a Pratchett book: "Did you hear that young Pedophilia Documentary is dating Exorbit Clamp now?"

Evans was referring to Out of Shadows, a 77-minute "documentary" that appeared in April on YouTube, seemingly out of the blue, from a former stuntman named Mike Smith. The film alleges, among other things, that Hollywood is run by Satanic pedophilia rings that distribute propaganda through films like Zoolander, the music videos of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and a discreet set of symbols, including the words "television" (tell-a-vision), "channel" (psychic communication), and "Hollywood" (named, they say, for the holly plant-which is poisonous and was, of course, once used in Druid rituals).

Conspiracy theories really are a fascinating periscope in the human mind. Two of the most common and counterintuitive takeaways are:

1) That a lot of people are more comforted by the idea that the arc of history is controlled by a coordinated conspiracy of hyper-competent evil people than the idea that most things that happen are the result of morally mixed people just trying to get by in large numbers.

...and...

2) If you want to feel like a good person, you could discipline yourself, cultivate virtues, help others, and try to make the world better, but it's much easier to feel righteous if you just assume that all the people you don't like are really satanic pedophile cannibals who torture children to absorb their magic mojo in order drag as many people as possible to hell.

Seriously, the strangest thing to me about QAnon and whacked-out stuff like this how many people desperately, desperately want all this stuff to be true. Why would you want to live in a world where this is a real thing?
 
2020-08-06 1:18:11 PM  
Um, also, I don't doubt that there are pedophiles in Hollywood, just like I don't doubt there are pedophiles in any setting where adults are granted access to children, like youth sports, schools and every religious entity in the U.S.

Not really breaking news there, but I guess when you're trying to attract attention in the nutjob market, you go with the most appalling sales pitch. No detail too off-putting to include. In fact, I'd guess that the more off-putting, the better with these people.

These clots are the equivalent of Carlin's guy who tells you the King of Sweden is using his penis as a radio transmitter to send anti-Semitic lesbian meatloaf recipes to Soupy Sales and Marvin Hamlisch, except they shouldn't have a radio show.
 
2020-08-06 1:19:50 PM  
They're not wrong, to be honest.  They're just as significantly flawed, if not more flawed working off ages-old stereotypes and trying to perpetuate the myth that it's the "other guys" who run the show.

The Snafu Principle dictates that any sort of compromise and rationale can only take place between equals, and QAnon wants to set themselves up as superior and make the fictitious "liberal" as subhuman.  That thinking needs to stop.

All documentaries have always had an agenda, that's how they work. Want to show that Apple has shiatty production facilities in China? Then you aren't really going to focus on any sunshine that exists at those facilities...

The difference here though, is that you would still be making honest statements and pointing to factual events and situations, whereas these people are just saying that it's a doc because they didn't write any jokes or car chases in...
 
2020-08-06 1:20:56 PM  
Hey now, the Church of Satan is very much against child abuse as part of their 11 Satanic Rules of the Earth. I'd probably trust a Satanist more with a child than a Catholic priest or Boy Scout counselor.

So would you classify it as a pseudo-documentary? Or a semi-documentary?

I'm embarrassed to admit I listened to some of Warnke's albums when I was a kid.  The evangelical side of the family gave me a couple of cassette tapes and I enjoyed the comedy, but largely skipped listening to the preachy bits.  It was only years later that I found out about the utter fraud he was perpetuating.

The sad thing about this crap is that it undercuts real investigations into actual sexual harassment, rape, and pedophilia that has always been in the movie business. The industry, like many others, constantly sweeps the crimes of their own under the rug. Harvey Weinstein is just one of many. And it's been going on for decades.

In my opinion (as an atheist), most religious "celebrities" are hucksters, and they are relentlessly marketed to families and thus children. I consider that appalling piece of shiat James Dobson worse than anyone else in that group. Not as familiar with this Warnke idiot.

Religious people are made particularly vulnerable to hucksters and con artists and lies, not because they're dumber than everyone else, but because they are not just encouraged but commanded to ignore their instincts and believe everything some approved huckster says.

If you have no ethics at all, producing bullshiat for "evangelical" audiences is basically a license to print money.

Focus on the Family.  Ugh.  My grandma had all those damn films.  That's all she would watch. Why are you bringing up such painful memories today?

My parents really got into Mike Warnke in the late 80's, early 90's.  We watched two or three of his specials.  They were so scared Satan was round every corner.  They also had the books like "Turmoil in the Toybox,"  "The Truth about D&D" etc.

Which, funny enough, is what made me want to start playing D&D as a kid so that kind of backfired on them.

"Television" means 'see over a distance' (Tele= distance, 'vision'=see [duh])
"Hollywood" was named for Holly Canyon.
And "Channel" is just a term for a set of frequencies given to radio or television licenses.

Somebody needs to tip him off to the subversive meanings of a whole raft of other everyday terms:

Communication: A portmanteau of "Communist unification"

Welcome: Literally "well-come", a reference to a druidic greeting involving inviting visitors to an orgy

Radio: "Ra Dio," a prayer to the Egyptian sun god as prayed by a Italian members of Illuminati

"That's a wrap": At the conclusion of filming, the director and producer will typically mummify a child alive as a sacrifice to assure the film's success

Electricity: Invoking the spirit of the demon Electra to encourage children to kill their mothers, like in the Greek tragedy

Commonwealth: "Common-wealth." I don't have to spell that one out, do I?

A work of fiction masquerading as a documentary. Even though docs always pursue an angle, they still have to be factually based, this is a ll made up bullshiat. It shouldn't have the word "documentary" associated with it at all. Of course, if you come up with a new label for these, the Right will latch onto it and apply it to anything they don't like (See: 'Fake News'), so I don't know what it should be classified as, other than fiction. 'Wishful thinking', perhaps?

Some people aren't aware of the abusive, controlling bullshiat Dobson sold to parents. (shrug) My mother was into that, too, when we were teenagers. She was all in on punishing "disobedient" children. Why wouldn't she be? Control freaks love things that justify their dysfunction.

My parents really got into Mike Warnke in the late 80's, early 90's.  We watched two or three of his specials.  They were so scared Satan was round every corner.  They also had the books like "Turmoil in the Toybox,"  "The Truth about D&D" etc. Which, funny enough, is what made me want to start playing D&D as a kid so that kind of backfired on them.

LOL, yeah, the Streisand Effect is just one of many things religious idiots can't seem to grasp.
