Conspiracy Theories for NPCs

1,280 words

“Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” is now a normie meme.

You can see this meme on t-shirts, on signs at football games, and on NPCs’ Facebook pages. It’s played for laughs, but it does show that the vast majority of America doesn’t believe the official Jeffrey Epstein narrative.

It’s a positive sign that people suspect our elites are up to no good. At the same time, the meme is unserious. It’s an “edgy” joke for normies who otherwise make sure to use the right gender pronouns. They know Epstein memeing won’t cost them their job or get them called a racist. Most normies would answer – depending on party preference – that either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump killed Epstein. The Mossad and other possible nebulous actors don’t even register. It’s all confined within the safety of mainstream discourse, even though it’s utterly stupid to think either Clinton or Trump are responsible.

The Epstein meme is another example of a conspiracy theory acting as a harmless safety valve. The meme discourse reinforces America’s two political teams and doesn’t result in uncomfortable questions about global elites and their power structure. It’s something to laugh about and feel a tad naughty as you head to your company’s diversity workshop.

It’s far safer to believe that the Earth is flat, JFK was killed by aliens, or George W. Bush blew up the Towers than it is to argue that America should remain majority white. It’s more comforting to imagine the world is run by a secret lizard cabal than it is to notice Jewish overrepresentation in the media, finance, and academia. Most popular conspiracy theories are just entertaining distractions from what’s really going on. You’re too busy figuring out the next link in the thriller plot to see what’s right in front of you.

Compare the different reactions to “Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” versus “It’s Okay to Be White.” Both are simple statements that most Americans would agree with. Yet, only one of the memes causes college campuses to panic and police departments to pursue hate crime charges. The other one is a funny sign at a football game. The system says you can believe Epstein was murdered so long as you know it’s not okay to be white.

That’s not to say everything the elite dubs a conspiracy theory is just an entertaining distraction. Many things called conspiracy theories are in fact obvious truths that the elites don’t want you to know. “In the hands of the establishment, ‘conspiracy theory’ is simply a term of abuse masquerading as an objective category,” Greg Johnson argued in his astute article on Epstein’s death. “For the establishment, a ‘conspiracy theory’ is just a dissenting viewpoint that threatens its power.”

A clear example of this is the mainstream media’s coverage of the Great Replacement. The West’s radical demographic change is derided as a conspiracy theory in the same papers that celebrate the radical demographic change. It only becomes a conspiracy theory when it’s viewed as a bad thing, in order to assert elite power. You’re not being replaced; we’re just becoming more diverse! There’s no policy to make your home town less white; it’s just an accident of our various policies that favor non-whites. You shouldn’t worry about it, otherwise you’ll be called a crank and a racist.

The Great Replacement requires no hidden book of secrets to figure it out. It only requires clear eyes to see the truth before you.

But not all conspiracy theories are equal. Many of them are just downright stupid. There’s no better example than QAnon. QAnon is a labyrinthine theory that I’m not going to describe in detail, but in brief, it holds that President Trump has a secret plan to arrest Democrat pedophiles with the help of a few Deep State allies. QAnon refers to an anonymous poster on 4chan who claims to have Q-level security access – one of the highest in the American government –  and is revealing the secret plan to the most gullible Boomers in the country. It’s likely the work of a prankster that’s gone too far. It even inspired the murder of a mob boss by one of its believers last year.

There are many loony things about QAnon. One is the idea that Hillary Clinton tried to assassinate John F. Kennedy Jr., but that he faked his own death and has been living a quiet life in suburban Pittsburgh. QAnon believers have even identified the man they think is the real JFK Jr. For some reason, JFK Jr. is supposed to return in 2020 as Trump’s running mate and save America from the Democratic pedophiles. Why JFK Jr. is the Frederick Barbarossa of MAGA Boomers is beyond me.

In spite of the murder and a few other crimes, QAnon is designed to placate the hardest core of Trump’s followers. “Trust the plan!” is one of its mottos – and it’s fitting. The loyal QAnon devotee doesn’t need to worry about impeachment, lack of action on the wall, and a seemingly incompetent administration. It’s all a part of the plan, and they just need to trust it.

Rarely has Q made a correct prediction, but tens of thousands of Boomers believe it and swear by it. It’s turned into a blind faith that they won’t question. It certainly doesn’t make them second-guess the establishment, however. Epstein’s death was all a part of the plan.

For all its sheer lunacy, QAnon is still a safer belief to hold than the idea that Trump should explicitly fight for white interests. This was evinced when the media broke the huge story that a QAnon believer worked as the pastry chef at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. Plenty of conservatives and a few liberals thought the story was outrageous on the assumption that one’s personal beliefs shouldn’t determine one’s employment. The pastry chef kept her job – something that can’t be said for hundreds of identitarians. Few would defend the pastry chef’s employment if she attended an American Renaissance conference.

Alex Jones is another example of the harsher treatment of racial topics versus conspiracy theories. No one tried to deplatform Jones when he mostly stuck to 9/11 trutherism and UFOs. When he got into immigration and race, he became a prime target for removal. Yes, one of the reasons for his removal was claiming that the Sandy Hook shooting was a false flag, but that argument only gained steam when Jones became associated with the Alt Right and Trump’s election. If he had not talked about racial issues and backed Trump, he would still be on YouTube. There are certainly plenty of other, safer “conspiracy theorists” who are allowed on the big social media platforms.

The Dissident Right is prone to believing in “conspiracy theories.” It’s not hard to see why, since our basic beliefs are derided as such. Many within our ranks are independent thinkers who question everything and begin to wonder what else have “they” have lied about. This sometimes leads people to believe in ridiculous ideas like flat eartherism, and too many of us can’t resist the power of poorly-designed Geocities pages telling us that Martians killed JFK.

It’s tempting to be sucked into a dizzying array of “truth bombs,” but identitarians should resist it. Our ideas are plainly obvious to the average white person. There’s no need to appear as cranks who shriek about the Illuminati and Pizzagate. We’re already outside the mainstream, and the last thing we should do is further ghettoize ourselves.

Our ideas are the real threat to the system, and we’ll know we’re winning when normies embrace “It’s Okay to Be White.” That simple statement is far more dangerous than the faux-edginess of “Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself.”

    This makes some points I’ve been making for some time.

    Also consider:

    (1) Art Bell and George Noory told/tell you that they are telling you what the government doesn’t want you to know about space aliens et al., problem is, their show is on 500+ FCC-licensed radio stations. Meanwhile, Jared Taylor is rarely heard on FCC-licensed terrestrial media, or otherwise, for that matter.

    (2) A tale of two Colorado cities. Earlier this year, I read that the second annual flat earth conference was held in Boulder. You know, University of Colorado, because science. You’d think that with all the academics at that school that are ever on the lookout for anti-science attitudes, that they would have deployed the paramilitary wing of academia (Antifa) to shut it down. Not only did it not happen, but I doubt there are any threats to this shindig. And note I said second annual, meaning they’ve been able to hold this farce two years in a row in the same place.

    Meanwhile, V-Dare can’t get a venue in Colorado Springs to save its life.

    I read conspirative theoretics for the same reason why I read science fiction and international thud and blunder fiction. For that reason, I call people like Alfred Lambremont Wrbre and Benjamin Fulford SF authors. Do I believe? No; but these are fun intellectual toys.

    I love the NPC meme. It’s completely accurate, and it drives Leftists, who are already nuts, into a hissy fit. I hope we see tons of NPC memes over the next year.

    Regarding QAnon, my take is that if it is indeed an operation run by a White House insider, its purpose appears to be to simply keep Trump’s base happy. It’s easier to vote for DJT when you believe that his Israel First foreign policy, his failure to properly secure the border, his pro-mass immigration rhetoric and policy, and all the other broken campaign promises are all part of a big master plan that will save America so long as you just trust and support Trump.

    It may seem like a “safe” meme, especially with the kinds of topics regularly discussed in dissident circles, but I don’t think it was astro-turfed if that is what you’re implying. Recently I showed the Project Veritas clip of the ABC news reporter discussing Epstein’s death to one of my normie friends who had not followed the Epstein case. This friend of mine is in his early forties, and an intelligent man. Yet the story had been memory-holed so quickly that he was unaware of the details (the prison’s security cameras “malfunctioning” at the time of the incident, or that the two guards who were supposed to be watching Epstein had fallen asleep, etc.). He was also unaware that Epstein had a private island and all that. The meme may be co-opted by the establishment, but it is bringing attention to something “they” successfully memory-holed, both in the years prior to Epstein’s death and in the weeks and months following it. It is rather telling given the current impeachment circus.

    Are Lana and Henrik still on YouTube?

    Seems like Red Ice was a lot safer when they were sticking to UFO stuff too.
