Porkins Policy Radio episode 197 Qanon Silent but Deadly with Robbie Martin part 1

This week Robbie Martin joined me for the first installment in our new monthly series which looks at the Qanon conspiracy theory and its impact on society at large. We started by discussing the fact that Q has not posted anything since August 1st (due to the 8chan’s removal). Robbie talked about how the Qanon community has handled the absence of “Q drops.” This has mainly taken the form of Q followers believing that Trump’s tweets are now coded messages from Q. We then looked at how Trump himself has become an active participant in the conspiracy theory. Robbie talked about how unprecedented it is to have a sitting president seeding a conspiracy theory, and simultaneously being viewed as the hero in the narrative. Robbie also discussed the historical roots of the Qanon theory and its connections to PizzaGate. He talked about how Qanon evolved out of PizzaGate and the possible role that people like Erik Prince and Steve Pieczenik have played in promoting it. We finished off by looking at how the Qanon theory has influenced the public’s understanding of the recent scandal involving Trump, Biden, and Ukraine.

In the second hour I open the phone lines. Jon Gold called in and gave us an update on the ongoing 9/11 lawsuit against Saudi Arabia. We talked about Barr’s decision to release the name of the high ranking Saudi official who was overseeing the two San Diego hijackers. Later, I talked about the allegations that Iran was behind the recent attack on two Saudi oil facilities. I laid out my reasons for why the US was so quick to shift blame away from the Houthis. I also explored the idea that Iran was behind the attack.

Obama to Hollywood: “Don’t glorify guns, war is fine though”

According to our Dear Leader Hollywood needs to stop glorifying guns. Speaking before a room of Hollywood executives Obama proclaimed “We gotta make sure that we’re not glorifying it…” “Because the stories you tell shape our children’s payroll and their lives.”

Well, where to begin with this dribble. The man who’s administration funds and foments armed conflicts around the world doesn’t want Hollywood to make guns look cool. He seemingly has no problem with the constant stream of pro-war, pro-state propaganda that Hollywood churns out on a monthly basis. It’s wrong to have a movie that features an individual using a hand gun, but fine to team up with Hollywood execs to make make films which glorify the systematic slaughter and occupation of other human beings. The incestuous affair between Hollywood and the murray industrial complex seems to have no bearing whatsoever on the peace president. It is true that the stories Hollywood creates shape children’s lives. Popular culture has a profound influence over the American people. Hence, Hollywood and the military work together to produce films that brainwash children into joining up and murdering people in foreign lands. Oh and by the way they do this occasionally with the use of automatic guns.
