The flat earth premise is the set-up for a Dan Olson thesis about some dangerous political crank beliefs we’re all having to deal with at this horrid moment in history. Watch it if you can handle it. I personally have been avoiding the specifics of what fascist facebook dads believe as much as possible, so it was a useful look at the other side.
The thesis here is to not expect empathy or reason to reach fascists, or at least not easily. Others have noted the antisemite-flat earth connection and extended some sympathy – the world is unjust and most of us are oppressed by the systems of power around us, you’re right to feel aggrieved, maybe think twice about what the source of that pain is. Same reality check different approach: “It ain’t the jews or the libs you fucking nazi trash” (commit assault). Mr. Olson here isn’t on either of those tracks. He’s just trying to let people know what they’re really up against in this discourse.
So I needed this video as a check-in on what the jerks are up to these days, but it was also useful to compile a list of hashtags to block/blacklist on social media. This list has redundant entries for platforms that allow spaces and those that do not, edit as required:
#adrenochrome #deepstate #deep state #epstein #epsteinisland #epstein island #inittogether #in it together #pedoisland #pedo island #pedovore #pedovores #pedowood #pizzagate #qanon #savethechildren #save the children #spygate #stormer #thestorm #the storm #thestormishere #the storm is here #thesepeoplearesick #these people are sick #trusttheplan #trust the plan #wwg1 wga #wwg1wga
Blocking is a good idea because these asswipes will say agreeable things to stealth you into spreading their ideology, like the situation of the house of rumored child traffickers that got mobbed in Wisconsin. Were the people in the house up to no good? I don’t know, but the missing girls turned up somewhere else completely, the supposed photo evidence was being tweeted by somebody that included a nod to motherfucking pizzagate.
Staying woke ain’t as easy as it used to be. Some BLM activists are sometimes – knowingly or not – reblogging literal nazi content from people who literally want them dead. Look at the hashtags. Eyes open.
