‘Neil Armstrong – LYING PIECE OF MASON SH*T: Good RIDDANCE’: Moon Truthers Mourn a Legend
Neil Armstrong, the first human being to ever set foot on the moon, died over the weekend, triggering an avalanche of eulogies, remembrances, and memorials. Both from the vast majority of human beings who are in awe of Armstrong’s feat — and from the few hundred weirdos on the internet who believe the moon landing was faked by Illuminati Reptilians.
Since Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins landed on the moon in 1969, people have been claiming that the whole thing was a hoax — staged and filmed (some say by Stanley Kubrick) as a political distraction, or a propaganda exercise, or an occult ritual. Or maybe all three. There’s a long and extensive debunking of the conspiracy on Wikipedia. Toward the end of his life, Armstrong took the theorizing in stride — “People love conspiracy theories, they’re very attractive. But they were never a concern to me,” he told an Australian television station earlier this year — but they never stopped. Not even with his death.
As always, the place to start to find the best of the conspiratorial web is the Godlike Productions message board. It doesn’t disappoint:
Ed: The notion that the Moon landings was faked has spawned – as many others have – an industry of campaigners (largely misguided) and a elite of it’s own with merchandising a books. None of the top conspiracy theorists are poor, unless you are going by reasoning.
