alt-right anti-Semitism daily stormer flat earth irony alert literal nazis none dare call it conspiracy racism

There are, for real, Nazi Flat Earthers, and they need to fall off the edge of the world

Hitler takes aim at the ball earth propagandists at NASA

There’s a civil war brewing in the midst of the once-happy alt-right. No, I don’t mean the squabbles between those alt-rightists who’ve abandoned Trump over his Syria attack and those sticking with Daddy — that’s old news. I mean the civil war between the neo-Nazis who think the earth is a globe and those who think it’s flat.

Yes, that’s right: There are Nazi Flat Earthers, for real, who think that “globe-heads” (that’s what flat earthers call the rest of us) are as big of a problem as “globalists.”

This is news not just to you and me but to some in the alt-right itself, including Daily Stormer head boy Andrew Anglin, who posted a joke video about flat eartherism yesterday only to discover that some of his fans take the flat earth very seriously.

In the comments to his post, the Nazi Flat Earthers laid out their case, such as it is. (Here’s a direct link to the discussion on the Daily Stormer forum; archive.is doesn’t seem to work properly with forums.)

“omg, I can’t believe you guys haven’t figured out the world is flat yet…..” wrote someone calling himself Excalibur

here is a challenge for all the non believers , somebody give me a picture of the earth that is not CGI
just one

(Er, this one?)

“Whiteliberty,” meanwhile, suggested that STEM logic supports the flat earth “thesis.”

Science is the acquisition of knowledge capable of being reproduced.

You can’t reproduce Big Bang. It’s not science.

With flat earth, there are multiple lines of evidence that point in the same direction.

Many globe claims have been power of suggestion, reliance on authority, and black box frauds. As a thesis, flat earth is stronger in 2017 than 2007. …

Newton’s Third Law prohibits acceleration in space. You need a medium to move: floor, water, atmosphere. Space is not a medium. This would explain why NASA had to lie and fake a moon mission.

“Interjew” rehashed a favorite flat earther argument, that ships don’t really go over the horizon at all; they’re just hard to see at such a great distance.

Using modern technology, you can zoom them back in. They’re not a mile below a curvature, they just go beyond the vanishing point of perspective.

3rdRicht had some serious thoughts about moonlight

I only started looking into what Flat Earth theories within the last month.

1 interesting point is at night, it is cooler in the Moonlight than it is in the shade.

I have no idea what he’s talking about or how this “fact,” if true, would support the idea of a flat earth.

“Fun fact,”whitemanshame added, “all the moon mission astronauts were satanic freemasons.”

KingOfTheNorth1488 added sarcastically

If Jews and masons tell me I’m on a spinning ball moving through the universe at near lightspeed, I believe them because they are experts and my eyes are lying to me.

There were, of course, quite a few Daily Stormer readers who took issue with the flat earth nonsense.

“[F]lat earth requires us to believe that almost everything we know about the entirety of physics is completely wrong and upside down,” StormCommando noted.

What are all the thousands of photos of stars, galaxies and planets and why would they go to such extreme lengths to create such a dumb conspiracy? And why would they invent all of these apparently totally fictional satellites and go into great detail about their workings, specifications, and spend time making these elaborate and unnecessary ‘props’ in lab environments? Again, utterly stupid idea.

But hey, he went on to add, it’s not like the Holocaust is real though.

I can buy holocaust revisionism because that’s a conceivable lie. It’s about distorting the facts of something which already happened. … [I]t’s very easy with a little examination to disprove the holohoax.

Someone calling himself BobMarely (!) was a little upset that the topic had even come up.

Maybe I am weird but I HATE FLATEARTH MORE THAN CHILD RAPING PAVEMENT APES. Why in the hell is Anglin posting this crap? This is disgusting beyond words. … Is this humor? It doesn’t seem to have any entertainment value. Is the entire goal of this video just to irritate me personally?

Still, even some of those not completely convinced by the flat earth theory had no trouble believing that the moon landings, at least, were faked.

“One thing is for sure: We never went to the moon,” wrote fascistlemming.

I find it kinda shocking that so many people think we did. “The jews faked 6 million dead kikes with fake shower rooms, but faking the moon landing is impossible because of reasons.”

Despite the animus, flat earth Nazis and globeheads alike agreed on one thing: it’s all the fault of the lying Jews.

As the round-earthers see it, it’s the Jews who are behind the flat earth movement. A fellow calling himself Dune noted:

One of the main proponents of [the flat earth theory] is a jew named Mark Sargent. … Anything lead by a jew and randomly pushed toward the masses via their pawns is questionable for the larger picture they may be working towards.

To JosephGoebbels,

the flat earth theory comes from the jews who will do anything they can to get white people to not believe in the Holy Bible as truth.

Don’t ask me to explain this theory in more detail, as Mr. Goebbels didn’t even explain it himself.

The flat earthers, meanwhile, suggest that Jews are hiding the reality of the flat earth behind a mountain of Jew lies.

SouthernFascist suggested that

They lie about the holocaust, they lie about the bible, they lie about every single war, they constantly change history, the pretend to be part of the European diaspora, they lie about the control their banks have, they shovel race mixing propaganda down our throats, so if any of this flat earth stiff has any merit at all, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the jews were lying about that too.

[W]hitemanshame was a bit more definite on this point:

Globe theory hatched from the Jews.
Do your research.
Jews, Jesuits and freemasons pushed the globe fantasy.

Anglin, annoyed both by the flat earthers and by those anti-flat-earthers who didn’t realize the flat earth video he posted had been a joke, added a big disclaimer at the top of the posts — and closed the comments.

In a followup post, he made clear to his readers that not only isn’t he a flat earther; he doesn’t even want people talking about the subject on his website.

 I do not believe the earth is flat, nor is it something I want to promote to people.

If you do believe the earth is flat, that is your own business, but I don’t want that on my website.

Again, it was a mistake to post the video, as I am aware that there is an army of people on the internet who push this idea.

I don’t even want to make this post, because I don’t want these people sending me fifty trillion emails, but I want to be clear that I didn’t make that post to endorse flat earth theories. …

Seriously though, this type of thing is just… I mean, use some common sense, guys.

I understand you’re not scientists, and I understand you’ve been lied to a lot so you’re willing to question anything, but just look: 100% of scientists would either be lying about this or be in on the conspiracy, while 100% of pilots and shipmen would have to be in on the conspiracy, along with all of the governments of the world, the militaries, television, telecommunications and any other company that uses satellites and on and on and on would have to be in on this conspiracy to lie to you about the shape of the earth.

He’s right, of course. It just seems like a slightly ironic argument for someone who is a Holocaust denier to make.

@Imaginary Petal: I was reading through the comments at work when my co-worker stopped and said “Is that a Richard Spencer pokemon card????” He thought the weakness x 9 was the funniest, though I have to admit that I’ve never played the game and enjoyed the words a lot more.

Re: beers – I really do love IPAs. I know it’s pretty cliche, because that’s what everyone says, but I really do. I also love the Weiss beers, and the sour beers that are just starting to be a thing in the craft breweries around here.

There was a really great mango sour beer that the micro brewery on my way home only brewed the once… ;__;

I used to be pretty fond of stouts, but I had a horrible stout that pretty much ruined them for me. It was like, a bbq stout? They had just used liquid smoke to pull that flavour out, though. So every time I drink a stout now, that’s all I taste.

I’ll try again in a few months, maybe I can retrain myself so I can enjoy ’em again!

OT: Flat earth doesn’t make any sense, and the pretzels people need to tie themselves in to make things work are just…. Ridiculous.

On behalf of physicists everywhere, could you ask him what “cold light” is, please? We’d love to know. It could completely revolutionise so many things, not least of which is thermodynamics.

I don’t think the moon has “cold light”, as such. It’s just that the speed of dark is faster than the speed of light, so the dark has more energy, but it’s negative. QED.

Wait, that doesn”t work. More research needed.

I think flat earthism is perfect crankery for the kind of people who want to believe something weird just for the sake of being special snowflakes.

Flat earth is the popular archetype of outdated science, anti-science, darkness of Dark Ages. It’s really widely known and mocked, for a type of fringe crankery that very few people actually believe in. However, it doesn’t brand you as a potentially dangerous misfit, like being a nazi would.

I’m a sucker for porters, especially American ones and chocolatey ones. There’s a great Gothenburg porter called Carnegie, which is probably my fav right now. Other than that, I have a thing for Czech lagers. Staropramen, Zlatopramen, Pilsner Urquell, Starobrno, etc. I also enjoy Medalla, Presidente, Kingfisher, Singha, and others.

Not a fan of IPA though :/

Christopher Priest’s Inverted World features a different kind of inversion, but it’s certainly weird. Like most of his writing, it didn’t really work for me, but many readers regard it as landmark SF.

There is, of course, a lot of SF set in artificial inside-out worlds, such as Larry Niven’s Ringworld books, Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama, and Greg Bear’s Eon.

@Alan Robertshaw:

@ opposable thumbs

How many double-decker buses in a football pitch?

Double decker buses are approximately the size of newly discovered dinosaurs. So you’d probably have to lay a bunch of brontosauruses end to end at Anfield or something to work that out.

Except it’s been something like 150+ years since they discovered the brontosaurus, so that’s not a recent discovery at all! And if you’re going to argue that they recently reinstated the species, I’ve got one word to tear your argument apart: WRONG!

@Bina:

Also, fun trivia fact: “Gymnasium” literally means “place to get naked”, because the ancient Greeks did their exercises and sports in the altogether. (Hence all those wonderfully constructed nude statues, which were probably all posed for by athletes of the day.) Meanwhile, the German word for high school is also “Gymnasium”, for reasons unclear. (Nudity, obviously, plays no part there, although sports most certainly do.)

Maybe the Greeks thought they needed a place for grown-ass people to strip off and compete. My kids know that they don’t need a special place to run around with no kit on, merely the right mood. At least they know that the proper mood does not strike when we take them to gymnastics.

@IP:

I’m not sure if this means he’s abandoned his Hollow Eartherism, or if he thinks Earth is both hollow and flat somehow.

“… And that, you sheeple, is how we know the Earth to be Reesie-cup shaped!”

You don’t have to imagine that in the voice of Terry Jones’ Sir Bedevere, because it would probably make you averse to Terry Jones, but I can’t help it myself.

@VP

Hollow earth fantasies have been around since the 19th century or earlier, right? All those early adventure stories about finding the secret passageway in the Himalayas or wherever and discovering a hidden wilderness or lost civilization or whatever.

After TSR had mapped every inch of space laid out to support their Mystara line, rather than flip the map over and show us the other side of the world, they invented the Hollow World. The conspiracy extends to our tabletop games!!!11!

@IP: I think Porters might be my gateway back into stouts! I should really try more of them. I like chocolatey flavours as well, but not coffee. (Not a fan of coffee at all) and unfortunately the easiest to get local porter is coffee flavoured. Pah!

edited to add: This is the porter I was talking about- Millstreet Coffee Porter http://millstreetbrewery.com/special-release/coffee-porter/

And here’s the sour beer that both my room mates (notorious not-beer people) enjoyed! http://halobrewery.com/beer/Second_Sun

I also really enjoy this one, Magic Missile – http://halobrewery.com/beer/Magic_Missile – In the picture, the beer is surrounded by d4s!

I’m not a huge fan of lagers, but again, I should try more! It’s a long weekend coming up, I should just go to the store and buy a few singles of different types of beer. That’s always fun.

Ever since, they’ve been trying to get out of the corner they’ve painted themselves into, which they can do with three little words: “We were wrong.”
Dalillama: Irate Social Engineer
Thing is, the whole edifice of the Catholic Church is predicated on them not being wrong, ever, about anything substantive.

I’m no apologist for the RCC. But fair is fair. The Pope apologized about the Galileo incident on 31 October 1992. Now, it was over 350 years AFTER the trial in 1633, but better late than never, I say.

Actually, the RCC gets a bad rap about being anti-science. It doesn’t hold to biblical literalism, but claims that the works of God (The Universe) and the Words of God (Scripture) must comport. If they don’t, then the RCC will revise their theology to match the science. Which they have done many times, most notably over heliocentrism and evolution.
However, the science must be overwhelmingly accepted by the vast majority of scientists in the field before they will accept it. This can take a long, long time.
Their major priority is that their followers do not lose their faith in the Church as the only vehicle for salvation and if that means waiting decades, or even centuries, before any change in a Church position is made, then it is for the greater good.
(I hate to say it, but that is the whole justification for the pedophile scandal – from their point of view, it is better, though regrettable, that a few kids get abused, than people flee the Church in outrage, lose their salvation and burn in hell as a result. As Hitchens said “Religion poisons everything”.)

But yeah, despite the fact it’s a pretty conspicuous thing, and even had a public restaurant, it didn’t appear on maps until the late 80s. That’s because it’s part of the ‘Backbone’ network which was a Cold War emergency communications system; and we didn’t want those pesky reds knowing where all the masts were.

Although in fairness, they’re not exactly hard to spot.

Shipmen is definitely not a common word in North America.

One of the people promoting hollow Earth theories in the ’70s was Canada based Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. He claimed UFOs were actually Nazi supercraft operating from the hole at the pole. He even tried to fund an expedition to meet the Nazi saucermen, the promo material having a picture of a 747 with a swastika on the tail.

@Dalillama-

Thank you. I love and enjoy everything else about my partner- but this may well be a deal breaker in the future. I had no idea he was into conspiracies and woo to such an extent until about 9 months into the relationship. I thought he only found it amusing. I’ve spoken with him and told him that I respect him, but he is not to introduce this to my son or interfere in his vaccine schedule. I’m prepared (as well as I can be) to take appropriate actions if this gets beyond my limits.

@ EJ (Too)-

I’m not sure if you’ll see this, but I asked him about the moonlight. He said that if it was reflected light it should retain the sun’s heat. He has yet to prove to me (or even himself) that it is colder than shadow. He says his biggest hang-up is that he can see a crescent moon sharing the sky with the sun, so the phases cannot be the Earth’s shadow. :/

ETA- This, he said is the main reason he thinks Flat-Earthers are onto the truth. And the moon is its own source of light…

@Axe, Viscaria:
I never saw Rugrats as a kid, which is a shame because from what I’ve heard it’s excellent. Is it worth watching as an adult?

@Empires of Azure:
I’ll preempt this by saying that in my experience, people usually believe in woo for deeper reasons than the ones they give, and so it’s difficult to persuade them through simple teaching.

However, if he would like to learn the science behind it, I’ll try to explain below for you (or him if he wants to read it.) Apologies if this is oversimplified: I’m really bad at knowing which level to pitch these things at.

When he says the phases of the moon are not the Earth’s shadow then he’s absolutely right. They are the Moon’s shadow. The best way to see this is via experiment.

You will need: a billion-dollar observatory a dark room, a desk lamp and an opaque sphere (a sportsball will work well, especially a dark-coloured one.)

Go into the dark room, turn on the lamp, and hold up the sportsball. You’ll notice that one part of it is light, and one part of it is dark. Imagine that you could only see the light part; this is why a dark-coloured one is best.

By moving the sportsball around while keeping your head and the lamp still, you can see its “phase” change. You should be able to reproduce all the familiar phases of the Moon.

If you turn your chair enough (a revolving chair is awesome for this) you’ll be unable to see the lamp. It’s now “night”, because the “sun” is no longer in the sky. If you move back so you can clearly see the lamp, it’s “day” again. If you move so that it’s at the edge of your vision, then you’re in “dawn” or “dusk.”

Can you create a crescent sportsball during the “day”?

If you’re enjoying this, try to create a “solar eclipse” and “lunar eclipse.” Can you see why solar eclipses only happen during new moons, and why lunar eclipses only happen during full moons?

What’s worse, because they’re not so immediately obvious as wack-a-doodles, are modern GEOCENTRISTS. Mostly these are uber-conservative Catholics who assert that it all went wrong with Galileo. The Church was right, and the Earth is at the center of everything. Any idiot can look out the window and see that nothing is moving, right?

Flat earth may or may not be trolling. Geocentrists are serious. Leading spokesperson for this movement is Robert Sungenis.

I actually agree with him. It all went wrong with Galileo. Specifically, it’s where the Catholic Church went wrong. They could have stood up for intellectual honesty, instead they retreated into an ever more futile defense of absolute authority, resorting to ever more sophistic and dishonest reasoning.

Flat earth guys: get some airline schedules. Draw a scale map, say one inch per hour of flying time. Include some of the really long 8h+ flights. Produce a consistent map. What could be simpler?
