See the 5G mast? With the mind control rays coming out? What more proof of the secret could anybody need?

Margate Lighthouse is going to be the answer on a lot of upcoming pub quizzes

Or would be if the pubs weren't all shut

I don't imagine actors are particularly more or less likely to fall for woo conspiracies than anyone else. We just hear about it. Especially from those who are inclined to express their thoughts charmingly unhindered by whatever The Man might think of it.

I dunno. When it comes to woo and new age b.llsh.t California's basically the Hebden Bridge of America.

Goes back a long way, man: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_o ... California and even today a lot of Californians are living in lalaland.

Ah. That sheds light on the phrase "Nature Boy" used in the Talking Heads' track "Totally Nude". That's something that I hadn't realised I hadn't understood.
I'll think of something.

Eamonn Holmes, FFS. Talking about the "mainstream media", like we should all switch off ITV or something.

I saw his ridiculous comments on TV.

I gather he's now back-tracked. Probably the OFCOM investigation may have had some influence.
And remember that if you botch the exit, the carnival of reaction may be coming to a town near you.

Holmes had really drunk deeply from the conspiracy theory koolaid bucket, the terminal he was using is right off the usual playlist:
Mainstream Media
- FFS he's an ITV reporter
State Narrative
- Ah yes, we have a predefined state narrative to deny that 5G and Corvid-19 are not linked
As someone with an inquiring mind
- I'm only asking question

What an utter tw.t.

"Terminology", I assume you meant. Yes, it's a very peculiar selection of buzzwords to use if you're not actually a nutter yourself, unless you are being ironic or mocking which he clearly wasn't.

Yep a few typos in my little post, sorry. He's clearly on the conspiracy side of normal.

I'm not sure how useful that description is, but it's probably arguable that it is. But then again if you wanted to put a different spin on it you might claim that it was civil disobedience. Not successfully, I would imagine.

But terrorism attract harsher penalties and gives the police greater powers to after co conspirators and those who aid and abet them. I'm not sure that I am suggesting that they should do this but it seems like an option.

I did a google search for <5G frequency> and this page comes up as the 'featured snippet"
https://www.rfsafe.com/5g-network-uses- ... l-systems/

I have reported it as "misleading or inaccurate" , though it was a toss up between that and "harmful, dangerous or violent"

Indeed. When even Mike Adams thinks you're a conspiracy nut, you need to take a long, hard look at yourself.

Scientists warn 5G may cause people to believe stupid conspiracy theories
Scientists have warned that reading or hearing about the new 5G network can cause increased levels of stupidity in those exposed to it. The study found that even acquiring second or third-hand knowledge about the technology could result in believing all sorts of bollocks, from the belief that it causes the Coronavirus, to the idea that radiowaves which already exist all around you might somehow become dangerous if they contain the internet.
