Every time this thread is bumped I hope it's to announce that Alex Jones has done the world a favor and hung himself, but because he's such a fat fucking disgusting lizard person his head came clean off.

I was wondering, too, until I looked it up myself using the internet like a normal, capable 21st century adult living in a first-world country.

He was going 45 mph in a 40 mph zone and was below the legal limit.

Maybe the interdimensional reptilian pedophiles really are after him.

In case you missed it televangelist Jim Bakker (yes, that Jim Bakker) is being sued by the state of Missouri for selling a silver solution that was being claimed to cure coronavirus.

https://www.npr.org/2020/03/11/814550474/missouri-sues-televangelist-jim-bakker-for-selling-fake-coronavirus-cure

Missouri is suing him because he is now based out of Branson. He was selling it for $125 a bottle as part of several nutritional supplements he was offering. His broadcast has been dropped by several stations and credit cards have stopped processing charges to his ministry. But he is still selling food buckets and solar generators, as well as asking for donations, by check or cash.

Did he sell any to Russell Wilson? Tom Brady has some water for him.

The theory that the Chinese built this virus in a lab is gaining traction with some, particularly on the right. Science though says this coronavirus is not manmade.

This article is fascinating.
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna12 ... ssion=true

Quote:
In February, five months before she became known as "QAnon Karen," there was no one more terrified of the coming pandemic than Melissa Rein Lively.

"I bought the N-95 masks. I bought the hazmat suit," she said. "In my mind, a zombie movie was imminent."

At the time, Rein Lively said her career was at its peak. Her self-owned marketing company had just helped launch the high-end restaurant Nobu in Scottsdale, Arizona. Hyatt Hotels had signed on for marketing help.

By July 5, she had gone into a Target store and trashed the mask section, streaming her rage in a viral post that drew over 10 million views. Before the police closed in on her garage, she livestreamed her own mental breakdown on her company's Instagram account, telling police to "call Donald Trump and ask him" why she shouldn't be arrested for her actions.

She was, she told the police, the "QAnon spokesperson."

Rein Lively's experience is one that researchers recognize.

Cooped up inside her home and losing work due to the pandemic in the weeks before her outburst, Rein Lively filled the time she would've spent hanging out with friends and emailing clients by diving down conspiracy-fueled rabbit holes on Facebook and Instagram, worsening her feelings of isolation and fear.

Some find themselves believing in elaborate conspiracy theories about Bill Gates, 5G wireless technology, vaccines and masks, which researchers say are in part pushed by an algorithm and shared community members that group all of the theories together.

Within days, they begin to believe that President Donald Trump is waging a secret war to save trafficked children from a cabal of Satan-worshipping baby eaters who control the United States government.

Then, responding to the positive in-group reaction, some users take their anger and confusion out on essential workers in the real world — and livestream it for their followers to see.

And empathetic, all things considered.
Quote:
"I believe that we actually are living amidst another pandemic — a trauma pandemic," Foley Martinez said. "America right now is very unstable. It feels precarious. People are carrying huge amounts of stress, both financial and personal."

"People in these situations want something that has very clear rules, where there's a very clear definition of enemies; friends and foes," Foley Martinez added. "There's an allure to it, a feeling of empowerment when people are feeling abjectly disempowered."

This thread is going to get way too much attention once we have a COVID-19 vaccine.
