Hard Dawn’s Beautiful Satire Of Right Wing Conspiracy Theorists

Right wing conspiracy theory web sites are adept at skirting the line between leading questions and blatant falsehoods. They offer questions that suggest to gullible readers that the ideas being questioned are, in fact, well-established, supported by evidence. For example, the sites Pakalert Press and Before It’s News are currently presenting articles with the following headlines:

– Ebola – Another Illuminati Psy Op?

– Is Israeli Aggression Based on End Times Prophesy?

– ‘There Will Be No Water’ by 2040?

– CIA Bonded With Nazis To Sex Traffic, Kill Naked Children At Human Hunting Parties?

– Ruins Of Ancient City Found In Antarctica?

cat chemtrailsThese articles tend to follow a routine formula because their authors have found that certain writing patterns are especially effective at exciting the furious attention of right wing nuts. When an odd formula develops in writing, it’s a perfect opportunity for satire. Such satire is offered, in beautiful heaping piles, by Hard Dawn“Because Morning In America Won’t Be Easy”.

Among the leading questions asked at Hard Dawn:

– Are Deep-Sea Dinosaurs Living Proof of the Biblical Timeline?

– Are Militant Atheists Using Chemtrails to Poison the Angels in Heaven?

– Why Doesn’t the Liberal Media Identify Murderers as Atheists?

– Is the Gay “Bear” Scene Opening the Door to Homosexual Male Pregnancy?

– Can your iPhone turn you gay? The science is still inconclusive…

Other choice items:

– Richard Dawkins May Be Using the Shroud of Satanism to Cover His True Communist Agenda

– Many Atheists Believe That Eating Puppy Fetuses Will Cure Their Sexual Impotency. Here’s Why They’re Wrong

– Why Isn’t America Sending Bibles Into Space?

– Atheists, Abortionists & the ACLU Must Take the Blame for Ferguson Riots

– Legos: How One Vulgar, Ambidextrous Toy Opened the Door for Gay “Marriage” in Denmark

– New Zealand Debates Changing National Flag, Yet Forgets Its Moral Obligation to America

– Dorito Danger: How Mexican-Style Snack Chips Are Threatening America’s Borders

The insight of Hard Dawn is that there’s a certain combination of absurdity and curiosity that piques readers’ interest. Hard Dawn is able to use that combination to have fun. Right wing web sites are using that same combination to spread misinformation, fear and hatred.

Remember that background when you encounter a Republican voter this year. That person’s reality isn’t necessarily the same as your own.

    Oh, you mean the fundie evangelicals [king james bible protestants?] in the USA who vote for “rEPuBLiTARD/ republicans? Thinking Jesus would be a republican and taking monies from social safety net programs[food stamps-unemployment etc.] to offset taxation of the wealthier? [laughing!] THE USA has had a problem since 1980 where the republican party duped the low income low IQ in the red states [red neck racists] Senior Citizens [see ronnie reagan stupidity] Trickle down economics. (AND) The “fundie” evangelicals. ” Only the white southern baptists will be going to heaven” SEE – Jerry Falwell [what a jerk!] The Bush Family JR & SR ruined The USA economically – Not Obama, Playing payback to Saddam Hussien? – see weapons of mass destruction LIE! Now the rEPuBLiTARDS want to blame Obama, and with their republican majority congress they are trying to desperately make him FAIL in his presidency. November 2014 will be the critical LAST CHANCE and vote for americans to restore a democratic majority in congress and the senate so our president can be successful in his presidency. If this does not happen America will slowly become a 3rd world nation. The poor and unemployed will suffer even more. Welcome to UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT RESERVE INTELLIGENCE. The Pyramid with the eye on the dollar bill? – New World Order iLLUMINATi freemasonry Global Cabal? They eagerly await the aNTI-Christ Dajjal Jews “messiah”….. BEWARE grasshopper! BEWARE!

    Struggling with the concept of 2 male meerkats (in a master and servant relationship – boss and butler(or man servant)] – bringing up a baby meerkat- that was abandoned and found on their door-step, on a storm and rainy night.

    ######## Is that a political advertisement for Same-Sex marriages?

    The latest advertisement from – insurance brokers – seen on TV recently.

    Can we have a comment on Same-Sex marriage from Sergei?

  5. PAUL THOMSON says:

    … computer-generated meerkats – not real-life ones…

  6. The Libtard's Burden says:

    Conservatives are the least likely persons to realize how difficult it is to be a satirist nowadays.

  7. Pegpru says:

    I am so deeply grateful to learn that Hard Dawn is satire. I came across it today for the first time. I immediately thought it was sharp satire, but then I remembered some of the right-wing conspiracy theories, and I wondered. I shall add this to The Onion for required reading.

  8. Li Kane says:

    But reading some of the comments shows that there are people that think this is a non-satirical site. That’s scary.

    1. Gabe says:

      That’s actually the best part. The right-wing nutcases that comment can’t even distinguish it as satire because their perceptions of reality are so far off base. To them it actually appears like news.

  9. John says:

    Fantastic. It’s a site that trolls the left wing in what they think the right wing thinks. Nicely done.

  10. J Clifford says:

    The right wing’s latest conspiracy theory is totally worthy of Hard Dawn. Alex Jones, the right wing nut with the ear of President Trump, now says that children are being kidnapped to serve as slaves on a secret human colony on Mars.

    Satire can’t outdo that.
