I think a big part of the reason I love cryptids is that they’re literally the only subgenre of conspiracy theories where you can be reasonably assured it isn’t secretly about hating Jews. Like, when people talk about aliens or lizard people or sinister banking cabals, at least 80% of the time when you look up the foundational literature it’s a bunch of Antisemitic rot and “lizard people” is just a codephrase for “Jews”, but there are very few neo-Fascist whackjobs out there claiming that Bigfoot is Jewish.
Conspiracy Theorist Max Spiers has been found dead in Poland.
39-year-old Briton Max specialised in UFOs and government cover-ups. He had been staying in Poland with friends, as he was preparing for a big presentation that he was going to give in the summer. Police have assured people that Spiers died of natural causes, despite no post-mortem being carried out. Friends reported that he vomited a dark, sticky liquid before mysteriously dying on a couch in his sleep. The most chilling thing about this story is the last text message Max sent to his mother:
“Your boy is in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”
how I used to be:
omg i cant believe anyone would think the government would lie to us.
the moon landing was faked, the moon is a damn hologram, elvis didnt die, 9/11 was completely an inside job, our whole history is a lie, the government is out to get us and could kill me any minute now and make it so nobody knows of my existence.
