Y’all know my opinion on the “lot of hat, very few cattle” nature of Vox Day, and the “it’s all keyboard commando bullshit” nature of Q Anon etc. It’s also obvious that, for conspiracy theories to thrive, they must have non-falsifiable premises. Given all that, this is something of a surprise:
They are starting to drop the other stuff and Nancy Pelosi has now been dragged into this… fake shell companies being used to funnel money to Nancy from the Chinese government…This story is growing, but Nancy is clearly another Joe.
The drops are now coming so fast that there is no way I can handle all of it…
That’s not quite a specific, testable hypothesis in itself — getting “dropped” on the fever swamps of /pol/ and 8Chan and whatnot is a far thing from getting “dropped” in the Media — but it can easily be made so:
Let’s see if Trump or Giulinani mention it. Since those two need to know that things are 200% real before they mention them, if they do, it’s ironclad.
Color me extremely skeptical — see above — but there’s one data point in its favor: As contrariandutchman points out, if this stuff is real, the only hope for those implicated is to install President Joe as fast as possible, so that he can issue blanket pardons. Which means that nothing, nothing at all, is off the table for the Left when it comes to suppressing this stuff.
As we know from bad gangster movies, the typical way to handle this kind of thing is to make a zillion copies, stash them in a zillion banks, and write your will in such a way that if you die, the vaults get opened. The problem, though, is that President Joe can and will pardon anything, so that’s really a non-starter. But there’s another way to handle it: Drop everything, all at once — so fast and furious that the various cleaners, house painters, etc. of Hillary’s Sanitation, LLC, are simply overwhelmed. Short of pulling the plug on the entire Internet — I know, I know, I just gave them an idea, but they’re not that stupid, someone has already thought of it — at least some of this is going to get out into the mainstream.
So there’s another testable hypothesis: A sudden “hacker” attack that takes huge parts of the Internet down for days at a time.
I think it’s all bullshit, of course, but either way it’ll be instructive. Either we get to see a Festinger situation up close and personal — very illuminating in itself — or, well…. you know.
