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.

Oops. I changed a “they” to a “you” accidentally in the last part of my comment. It should read.

While it’s a rule new commentators might might not be aware of, they would find it useful to practice because they will become better at describing what they fear, are angered, by, surprised by, or disgusted by.

My family used to have a friend way back in the day who denied evolution, the moon landing, and the holocaust, and thought Jews and masons controlled everything. When a relative of mine briefly talked to her again, asking what she thought of Trump the alt right hero, she even said Trump is a Jewish shill. Crazy is crazy does I guess.

“Newton’s Third Law prohibits acceleration in space.”

I… okay, science is literally my worst subject, but…… Newton’s laws were about EARTH, right? Do those laws even apply to outer space? Do scientists even try to?

There’s very little I remember from my science classes, but I was pretty sure Newton was about stuff on Earth.

I just had some stout and started to feel buzzed fast. Checked the bottle, turns out it’s 9.5%. It’s called Yeti Imperial Stout (Denver, CO). Anyone had it before? I had never heard about it. It’s pretty good and quite bitter, but obviously there’s a strong alcohol flavor.

I guess I could also ask, do people have favorite beers? :p

Answering a few questions that have come up about Flat Earth Theory:

Yes, look at the UN logo, and see the true map of the world! It’s colder in the center and the edge because the Sun tends to move over the middle portion, the circle that is the equator. That should be obvious!

Circumnavigating the globe doesn’t prove anything, because traveling east and west is just going in a circle around the center (north pole).

Seeing the curvature of the Earth from a high plane flight doesn’t prove anything because light curves, thus also explaining the seasons. Don’t ask us to explain the math because it’s REALLY complicated and we’ll figure that out later. This explanation also covers the illusion that ships sink down over the horizon. Just more light curving around! Do not notice that some of these explanations require light to curve in opposing ways. I see some of you noticing this and I demand that you stop it right now!

Also, there is no such thing as satellites. Satellite dishes are just radio antenna programmed to pretend to not work if pointed in the wrong direction. Never mind that you can go outside, look up, and see satellites moving across the sky if you know when to look. If you do, you’re part of the conspiracy!

Of course, the Bible describes the shape of the earth as a circle (not a sphere) but also says it has four corners, so clearly isn’t a circle. So, flat earthers are wrong either way. But the one thing we can all agree on is that the sky is solid (firmament).

Other really important proofs that I have seen Really Truly Serious flat earth scholars demand you silly spherical earther’s explain:

If Australia is really on the bottom of the globe, why don’t Australians fall off? The oceans should have all poured off the bottom centuries ago!

If the Earth is really speeding around the sun at 67,000 mph, why haven’t we all been blown off by the wind?

If the Earth was really spinning around on its axis at over 1000 mph, why aren’t we all thrown off, or at least really dizzy? Oh, right, it’s faster at the equator than it is at the poles! What ridiculous laws of physics you people will make up to defend sphericism! But people on the equator should be thrown off!

I… okay, science is literally my worst subject, but…… Newton’s laws were about EARTH, right? Do those laws even apply to outer space? Do scientists even try to?

Oh boy, I was hoping someone would ask!

Not only do Newton’s laws apply in space, they’re also a product of astronomical observation. You simply can’t get Principia without the work done by giants such as Kepler, but you also can’t get around in space without Newton once you’re in it.

Rockets, like other reaction engines, don’t get around by employing a medium like a propeller does. Rather, they simply push their own mass as propellent out the business end to provide a change in velocity. Whether that propellant is a hot mixture of kerosene and oxygen, magnetically accelerated hydrogen ions or impacting plasma from a detonated nuclear shaped charge is irrelevant: They all operate on the principle that pushing their own mass out will provide an equal and opposite reaction. However, since rockets lose mass as they operate, you have to model their capabilities with the rocket equation.

While there are rocket-less ways of getting around in space, these still operate on the principle of opposite reactions for given actions ala light and magnetic sailcraft. While all sailcraft have predictably low thrust, they also do not have to carry around propellant and can be much lighter than proper rockets for a given payload and mission. Non-Newtonian ways of getting around in space are unlikely, purely hypothetical constructs at best.

I’ll finally note that we use other kinds of reaction engines on a daily basis to get around within Earth’s atmosphere. If rockets did not work in space the way the flat-Earth Nazis describe, then neither would jet engines on airplanes! Remember: It’s not the air they push against to operate, but the air they’re pushing out.

My favorite flat earth theory is that the sun is a big flashlight moving in irregular circles over the plane of the earth. This is a real theory. I didn’t make it up.

How do people actually believe this, and why is it more believable than the actual truth?

I’ve been quietly wondering how possible it would be to start putting together an expedition over the edge of the Flat Earth. Start raising subscriptions from the true believers – offering incentives like affixing a plaque to the underside bearing the names of everyone who donates more than a set amount. Alternatively, for those who hold to the “infinite ice wall” theory, a plan to start harvesting the infinite ice for some suitably woo-y scheme. Perhaps we could dilute some compound in the infinite ice wall to create infinitely powerful homeopathic medicine. Or activate the ice crystals with the right energies and use them to generate free energy.

re: rockets and Newton

re: flat earth and round planets

My understanding is that the flat earthers (or at least some of them) acknowledge that other planets are globes, but for whatever reason the Earth is exempt from the gravitational forces that pull other planets into globes. I haven’t done a lot of research on FE, so for all I know there are various schisms with differing ideas about why we see other planets as round at all angles. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that is the case.

re: pate a glacer

Four minutes of research tells me that it’s something like Magic Shell – a liquid chocolate that hardens quickly to a glossy solid. You can make a ripoff Magic Shell with chocolate and coconut oil.

There are also believers in a stationary earth.

Check out geocentrism.com and a guy named Robert Sungenis. The modern geocentrists are mostly uber-Catholics who believe society went off the rails with Galileo. Speaking as a Catholic I can agree, sort of. That’s when the Catholic Church went off the rails. They had a chance to stand for intellectual honesty and blew it. 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.”

And for the people who say “It’s not that simple,” yes, it is that simple.

Were Jewish people particularly influential to ancient Greek philosophy?

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.

Troubelle, you are on fire today. That’s some awesome stuff.

@Scolar Viscari, Bearpelt:
That’s a very good description.

The laws of physics apply everywhere. However, the calculations are easier in some circumstances than others. The things that normally make them easier are:
– Things being in a vaccuum
– Things being spheres
– Things not being on the surface of other things
– A lack of friction

This means that space is generally a far easier place to do basic physics calculations in, and those calculations can be far more accurate. This, in turn, is why other physicists make fun of astrophysicists as being “easy mode.”
