Child molestors in power isn't a conspiracy. As you mentioned, Catholic priests and heck many other religions/beliefs (e.g semen warriors of PNG) has had their fair share of child exploitation.

Interdimensional-pyschic-child molesting-vampires, that's a tough one to swallow though (npi). I definitely wouldn't put all conspiracy theories on the same plane of possibility just because a very small percentage of them turned out to be true. I tend to lean on the side of accepting some CT's have been proven true in the past but the vast majority of them are still in the realms of total quackery. Eddie Bravo is heavily embedded on the side of some have proven to be true so all CT's should be viewed with the same level of credence.

Signed,

- Catholic Priests and those who defended them 20 years ago

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. But it's not your ass. Let's not even take a serious look into it. Instead let's attack those with the open-mindedness, care, and diligence who do. Yeah, that really makes you the voice of reason, all the while you didn't need to put any mental effort in. That sort of mindset shouldn't be glorified. It's incredibly ironic.

Silly to conflate and then dismiss all conspiracies as lunacy, like the lunar non-landing, flat earth, and child molesters in positions of power. These are all similar concepts in unbelievability I suppose. Talk about false equivalencies. Label, obfuscate, and on to the next one. The crazy thing is a high majority of people who do this don't get paid. I don't think you're paid. Just the standard brainwashing effect. That's the beauty of it to those who produce it.

LOL at holding up CNN and MSNBC as credible with their recent proven track record as liars. I already knew this from paying attention and independent research, but it's regularly catalogued by independent journalists and scholars like Glenn Greenwald, Jimmy Dore, and Chomsky. Watch the Jimmy Dore show regularly. Them, TYT Politics, the Secular Report and the like make the mainstream media look like clowns. How many things do they need to be proven wrong about, and in the same direction of serving those in power, before whatever they say should be taken with a grain salt and backed up with independent research of your own and history? The mental gymnastics/lack of memory is really incredible. It's like Groundhog Day.

P.S.: Prominent politicians like Dennis Hastert, Barney Frank, and Anthony Weiner were all effectively caught. And this is really hard to do for those in positions of power if you look at the cases of Jimmy Savile and Bill Cosby. Savile molested several hundreds of kids before it was acknowledged by authorities, after his death, that he was a child molestor. Before it was reported often, rumored, and scoffed at in the media/public. And they weren't nearly as powerful, nor did they have the law on their side, unlike prominent politicians would.

There was a culture of pederasty in both ancient Rome and Greece. The U.S. is the biggest modern empire. Purely seeing thousands of years elapse didn't make imperialistic psychopaths more moral. Actually with blackmail as a concept there's more incentive for there to be a culture than there was before.


You're such a sloppy thinker, you have no sense of the contexts in which any of these things occurred or how wildly different they actually are. To draw continuities between the Greek practice of pederasty and the molestation of children by Catholic priests and some supposed "imperialistic psychopaths" currently conspiring to molest children shows your total lack of education or nuance.

Greek aristocrats were not "molesting children" in any equivalent sense to how this became an epidemic in 20th Century Catholic institutions. Jesus, man. You're so sloppy.

Also, you think pedophile priests were men who realized they had these predilections and then decided that they should seek positions of power?

This is a ridiculous vision of the world where you can only imagine that things occur when, like, malevolent individuals reflect and decide on how to best achieve their evil goals. It's so much more complex than that. People are moved, and history is moved, by forces way bigger than any individual intention. Limited minds can't grasp this. In the same way, primitive worldviews have to suppose that the wind is operated by some sort of personified agent, you have to imagine that history is.

In the case of the Catholic priests, we're talking about the effects of generational trauma acting through, and despite, individuals. It's not self-possessed individuals deciding on how best to get their rocks off. It's also not the practice of pederasty in **** Athens.

I just think there's a difference in questioning the occasional "official story" of political events and believing that the earth is literally flat and that the puppetmasters who pull the strings of the world are literally child molesting beings/vampires (read: literally not of the human race) who are ultimately controlled by the universal evil/Satan.

Eddie said on the JRE podcast that he is teaching his children to be skeptical. No man, you are teaching your children to believe literally anything that anyone tells them except for the mainstream media and the government. True skeptics laugh at the notion that the likes of Eddie Bravo is a skeptic. As I said in another discussion regarding this same topic, you can't open up your mind so much that your brain falls out.

Guess that was a no to the Black Beauty's proposal, then.

The last Legacy event was awesome. A lot of interesting prospects on that card and one of the fights was bonkers. It involved a double knockdown, banana split, crazy scrambles, a semi technical brawl, and ultimate guillotine finish of an Olympian. Check it out, if you can. It was a big upset. Bellator should pick up that kid. He's only 4-1. I think the main event winner, Ian Heinisch, is headed to the ufc as an 8-0 middleweight with high level grappling, good athleticism, and marketability. You could say a lot of the same things about the 135 lb Jerome Rivera. He's only 6-0. UFC should try to move on him early, otherwise Bellator might pounce. The guy is pretty similar to the recently retired Miguel Angel Torres.
