The Protocols of the Elders of Islam

Sadly, that interesting fan-produced analysis of A Clockwork Orange I mentioned a few posts back is currently not available on Youtube.

On the flip side, whilst trawling around trying to establish what happened to it, I found the most succinct riposte I’ve seen to people robotically dismissing what I personally believe to be open-minded and rational discussions on the basis that they are 'conspiracy theories' for a long time...

“What's 'weirdo' about conspiracy theories? There are conspiracies and people form theories about them... What would be weirder would be if the world and the Universe were exactly as they appear to us to be right now at this moment in time, on the so-called evening news.”

Nicely put, though I immediately thought of two people who would be surprised, and out of work, if the majority of people stopped believing that the world and the Universe are exactly as they appear to be right now at this moment in time…



"There are more things in heaven and earth, Dick, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Shit loads..."


Feel free to compile your own personal lists


This gave me cause for thought about Gordon Brnwo and his latest hobby of popping the words ‘new’, ‘world’ and ‘order’ into speeches at every opportunity, or how it is possible to slap pyramids and all seeing-eyes signifying the ‘natural’ order of things all over your money, intelligence service logos or even laid-out across your front lawn, and all the other certifiably weird stuff that goes on with hardly anybody commenting how rank it all is.




Gordon understands. People don’t see these things because people
know they don’t exist

He’s only a political genius

NB It goes virtually without saying that there is a massive difference between a Conspiracy Theory and Conspiracy Fact. Conspiracy Theories, however well documented and supported by evidence, are merely paranoid ravings, whereas Conspiracy Facts are the kind of narratives people like my heroes, those watchdogs of Western civilisation Michael Gove and Melanie Phillips, are handsomely-paid to propagate in newspapers and the state broadcasting corporation. Most notably the existence of a fearsomely well-resourced Islamic plot, directed from a cave somewhere (location unknown), to establish a global caliphate that will encompass North America and Western Europe through a two fisted strategy of subverting our cultural identity by packing our most important institutions full of Muslims AND randomly blowing up commuters with bombs made from chapati flour. Yup, that would do the trick. Definitely

This is obviously a real threat and we should all be crapping ourselves. It's not just our lives and limbs that are at risk. Our freedom and our very souls are at stake.

Hmmm... hang on a minute ... a plot to achieve global domination ... subversion of our Christian values ... a clash of civilisations. It all sounds so dreadfully familiar. Now where have I heard all this before? It's on the tip of my tongue...
