“ChemTrail” conspiracy theorist Tom posted the following comment to an unrelated article yesterday:
more evidence to shrug off and explain away chemtrails:
Tom writes his words sarcastically, but I repeat them literally: Yes, I “shrug off” that article. Why? because its headline proclaims “No Doubt Chemtrail Proof,” then offers up the following photo:
Notice the rhetorical trick. Despite the “No Doubt Chemtrail Proof” headline, the photo caption only poses a question: “Does this internet photo show the interior of a chemtrail plane?” Questions like these, paired with are an old supermarket tabloid trick (Headline: “Miley Cyrus Pregnancy Crisis!” Photo Caption: “Miley Cyrus Baby Bump?”). The headline seems to declare proof, without indicating what the proof might be. Sloppy readers will interpret the question as pointing to the truth, but if anyone ever asks you to show the proof, you can say about the headline “Well, we just present the case. We let readers decide.” If confronted, you can say about the question, “hey, we were just asking a question. It’s a free country. Shouldn’t we ask questions?”
The article Tom links to doesn’t answer the question, because the question’s answer is patently obvious. Go ahead, I encourage you: Look up Patent Number 7413145. What’s that patent for? A fire-fighting airplane. Yes, a fire-fighting airplane. Two decades ago, I was stuck in a southwestern forest fire myself and as I hiked out of the threatened area I watched fire-fighting airplanes dousing the area with aerially-dispersed flame retardant.
“No Doubt Chemtrail Proof” this ain’t.
P.S. If you want a hint of the standard of “proof” held by the authors of the article Tom links to, check out these supposed explanations the article offers:
The exact reasons for why they are spraying has a few Theories. Everything from Blue Beam and HAARP, to Monstanto controlling food w/Agenda 21, Biological poisoning (Morgellons), Mirroring our Atmosphere to block sun light, hiding the approach of Nibiru.. Billions in Market Investiments against food, Military/War Advantages, Corporate land grabs after decimating the farms, Even to preventing our DNA Galactic upgrades. Etc..
“Morgellons” is a well-known form of patient delusion, and Nibiru is a secret invisible death planet that was guaranteed to kill us all in 2003. And then in 2012. And apparently now, too.
