Poetry – The Conspiracy Boogie

The Conspiracy Boogie

Joe’s got an earpiece and the world is flat.

Joe’s on drugs – what you think about that?

Don’s fighting a secret war against the deep state

If he doesn’t win it’ll seal our fate!

Nine Eleven was a CIA plot.

There’s a communist insurgency that’s really hot.

The holocaust was just fake news.

More propaganda from the Jews.

The UN wants to control the whole world.

And the WHO has completely failed.

The Dems want to take out guns from us!

They’ll do it too if we don’t make a fuss.

Trump’s a genius that’s why he’s a billionaire.

He’s clever, he avoids taxes – and we don’t care.

We never landed on the moon.

It was all Hollywood – filmed in June.

Covid-19 comes out a Chinese lab.

It was also caused by 5G, put that on their tab.

Hitler was a socialist, fascism is a leftist thing

The right is right about everything.

Evolution is a communist lie.

We all go to heaven when we die.

The Democrats and Hollywood have a paedophile ring.

They eat babies while doing their satanic thing.

Obama wasn’t a true American

He was an African man.

Antifa and all this George Floyd stuff.

A bunch of vandals – and we’ve had enough.

The whole of the media spews out fake news.

You have to check the internet to get the right views.

If we drain the swamp we can save the day

And stop the evil lefties from getting their way.

Immigrants are rapists and drug pushers too.

We need a wall to stop them coming through.

Trump is the saviour of the American way.

We’ll vote for him come what may!

They’re stealing the election with their fraudulent votes!

We’ll take to the streets and rip out their throats!

I’m sick to death with this constant stream of conspiracy garbage being cooked up by Trump and broadcast by right-wing propaganda sites. It is obscene.

The whole bunch of garbage is so preposterous that it defies all rational thought.

If there is anything that can be considered as ‘The Deep State’ – a conspiracy of billionaires – then Trump is in it up to his neck.

The irony is that the person spewing all this rubbish is the prime candidate!

Poetry – Who is it?

Who is it?

Who doesn’t pay his taxes?

Who’s telling porky pies?

Who’s claiming hoaxes?

As the population dies?

Who is arrogantly pouting?

Who ignores abuse?

Who shouts fake news

Every time he’s accused?

Who is using dirty tricks

To inflame and divide?

Who uses derogatory language

That many can’t abide?

Who operates in chaos

While feeding his base

Who brought his country shame

And is a complete disgrace?

I think I know the answer

It hits you with a thump!

Opher – 28.9.2020

Who is the worst leader America has ever had?

Who is a narcissist and arrogant sociopath?

Well it’s not hard to see. It’s Trump.

Poetry – We don’t need experts

We don’t need experts

We don’t need science.

We don’t need experts.

We can just guess the truth!

They don’t know anything.

They always get it wrong.

We’ve got the proof!

They are trying to control us

With their fake news.

The agents from the Deep State.

We know the earth is flat

And men walked with dinosaurs

And that Trump is great.

We’ve got our guns

And the bible to lean on.

We’re not going to be told.

Who needs education?

Just educated fools.

The bible is our gold.

Opher – 30.8.2020

It is very scary to see the result of Trump’s undermining of experts and scientists. It throws into a world of superstition, mad speculation, absurd conspiracy and opens us up to abuse.

Every nutcase in the world is pumping out propaganda to snag the gullible fools.

They don their silly costumes and go trotting out their fake news and conspiracy theories as if it were the truth.

Elon Musk – King of Hate!

Elon Musk sees that there is nothing wrong with spreading racism, hatred and division and inciting violence. Bullying is OK. Freedom of speech means that the strong have carte blanch to tear the weak to bits. Propaganda, fake news and lies are what made Trump big!! We need more fascism! We need more right-wing bullshit!! Who needs experts or scientists when we have superstition and phoney shit spewing from right-wing nutcases!!

Give a platform to hate and racism – it’s the American way!! Freedom of speech!!

Poetry – Who is this?

Who is this?

Who is this full of fake news?

Spreading misinformation to confuse?

Sowing division, with a short fuse?

A man who has never paid his dues?

Who is this who loves himself?

Who only cares about his wealth?

Puts global warming on the shelf?

And cares not about the planet’s health?

Who cosies up to the NRA?

To Putin and Kim – to our dismay?

To evangelists and the KKK?

And doesn’t want the BLM to have their say?

Who is this who loves his power?

Surrounded by an ignorant shower?

Always lived in his ivory tower?

Making gaffes and nonsense by the hour?

Who is this king of fools?

Who never follows any rules?

With an empty head and lack of tools?

Pampered and privileged at the best schools?

I think I know!

Are we all completely mad? We trust the world to populist fools – narcissistic megalomaniacs who are in it for themselves – psychopathic sociopaths who don’t care a jot for anyone or anything.

The populist culture – feed the fear! Widen the division!! Stoke the hate!!

It’s the cash, right?

No it’s not! There’s much more than the cash. There’s the morality, the environment, health and equality. So much more.

They are siphoning off that cash into their own pockets.

These people are not emotionally, intellectually or psychologically fit to lead countries.

Poetry – Here Lies Lies

Here Lies Lies

Here lies lies,

                Sacrificed on the altar of spin.

Here lies truth,

                Lost in the propaganda within.

Casualties of war

                As each side seeks to assert

Broadcasting lies

                To win in a world of hurt.

We’re all victims

                In the morass of untruth.

Believing lies

                We accept without proof.

All’s fair

                In love, politics and war.

Deceiving us

                As they break every law.

Here lies truth!

                Here lies lies!

Buried with the dead!

How can anybody believe what they are told? The truth is always manipulated. One has to read between the lies to see if we cannot glimpse the truth below.

We live in a world of spin, fake news and propaganda. All sides do it. They call it politics. It’s a world of lies.

The first casualty of war is the truth.

The media always has a political bias. Nothing is ever completely true.

NATO and the Ukraine appear whiter than white. They aren’t. NATO went back on promises and was after moving up to the borders of Russia. We would then have nuclear missiles close to Moscow. Were the missiles a threat? Were they a deterrent? Was it defensive or offensive?

Depends which side of the fence you sit.

Ukraine does have a number of extreme right groups who could be described as neo-Nazis. There is evident racism. But then there is in most European countries – look at the fascist Oban in Austria and Trump in America.

Can anything justify war? I don’t think so. Putin is a barbaric animal who needs trying for war crimes – not just here but in Chechnya, Grozny and Aleppo. Then we have war crimes committed by the USA and UK in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have the warmongering Iranians, Saudi Arabians, not to forget Bashir and the bastions of terrorism.

All war criminals should be tried.

Beware the black and white.

Unfortunately this distrust of politicians and the media has led to the propagation of conspiracy on the web. People are even more susceptible to the stupid propaganda flung out on the web. It’s worse than the media bias.

Hence we end up with lying Trump, lying Johnson, lying Bolsonaro and lying Oban. The whole populist movement is based on fake news and conspiracy. Lying is their trade.

But always, the first casualty of war is the truth.

Poetry – I will tell you the truth.

I will tell you the truth.

I will tell you the truth.

We do not know what the truth is.

Everyone has a vested interest in a version of the truth.

They all want to fool us.

To manipulate us,

To convince us that they are right.

None of them are right.

Some believe they are right.

Some are sure they are right.

The truth is that we do not know what is right;

Nobody can be sure of anything;

We are all guessing.

Beware the people who believe they are certain.

They are the ones to be concerned about.

Some of them are very dangerous.

Many do not care about the truth.

They simply believe what they are told

Without question;

They accept that it is the truth.

Some manufacture their own truth.

They create stories, exaggerations, perspectives,

In order to control us.

For them the truth is malleable.

They think we are stupid

And will believe anything.

They feed us lies.

Once, long ago, I thought I knew the truth.

I was naïve.

All I understood was opinion.

I had not experienced how complex life was

Or how devious and cynical people could be.

I now know that everything is uncertain.

That is the truth.

Opher – 11.7.2020

We live in a world of fake news.

People are telling us they know the truth – the politicians, the religious leaders.

They know nothing.

Some believe what they are told in textbooks, in tabloids, on TV, in broadsheets or on the internet.

The information is always from people trying to sell you something.

I don’t want what they’ve got to sell.

They are selling you a version of themselves. They want you to believe. They want you to do what you are told. They do not want you to think.

The truth is that nobody knows.

Opher – 21.4.2020

Fakes news and conspiracies are being churned out from sources with vested interests.

It is good to be cynical.

It is foolish to be fooled.

Each claim must be weighed up against the evidence. Nothing, not matter how persuasive, can be taken on face value.

Who is churning the conspiracy theories out? What are their motives?

Question Everything – George Carling

But beware!! Ignore the experts and scientists and you can easily fall prey to the propaganda chucked out through the internet. Before you know it you think the earth is flat, the UN is evil, the holocaust never happened, Covid doesn’t exist, Jesus lives, Trump is fighting alien lizards, Trump the billionaire cares, global warming doesn’t exist and the earth is only a few thousand years old. It’s all lies and conspiracy.

Learn to question!!! Don’t fall for conspiracy shit!!
