I posted a while back on conspiracy theorists, which attracted my very first troll – apparently my most recent decision to ignore him means that he wins. It’s my own fault, really because I forgot the 1st Rule of Internet Arguing.
Arguing on the Internet is like running in the Special Olympics: even if you win, you’re still fucking retarded.
Not really the most eloquent rebuttal I’ve ever posted, but it serves for a laugh.
LawDog also had a post recently on the Tin-Foil Beanie Crowd which was written with his usual flair and humor, and had me chuckling. I do have a new addition to Team Tin Foil, one that I wanted to share with you. As my wife and I returning from Virginia Beach, we happened across an AM talk radio show, unfortunately we lost the signal before I could get the name of the host. In the brief 30 minutes we had the signal (somewhere inbetween Richmond and Williamsburg), here is a rundown of the fun and entertaining “facts” I learned.
1. The Queen of England rules the world.
No joke. This guy actually thought that the Queen of England is the secret ruler of the world; he would refer to her as “Your Whoreness”, and make various references to her dark and secret influence over everyone. The best part was he took a clip from a local newsshow on proper etiquette for greeting the Queen, and used that to explain how we’re being trained like dogs.
2. 9/11 was an inside job.
The same old saw – with a different twist. The Queen (in her supreme power) engineered 9/11 to get her pawns George Bush and Tony Blair to go to war so she could regain territory lost by England. I’m not making this up – I couldn’t make this up.
3. Illegal immigrants are stealing American babies and selling them on the black market.
You should have seen the look on my face.
Now, I don’t KNOW that the Queen isn’t evil – I suppose she could be. I was more amused by the giant hate this guy had going for the Monarchy.
