Back during the 90s there were popular conspiracy theories around black helicopters. This conspiracy theory was so silly that it became a term synonymous with conspiracy theorist absurdity and is used to ridicule conspiracy theorists. Black helicopters is a conspiracy theory that most conspiracy theorists don’t believe in anymore and haven’t believed in for over a decade. That’s how silly it is, yet that didn’t stop The Spearhead from resurrecting the black helicopters conspiracy theory. (And the article was written by Bill Price, not Hawaiian Fat Blob like you might expect.) That article even has several comments from nutjobs who say they have seen black helicopters.
The so called manosphere is a cesspool of conspiracy theory, but this is a new low even for them. However, I am not surprised. The so called manosphere doesn’t just pick ideas that are wrong. They end up believing in the most insane variant of those wrong ideas. This happens with game, for example. Nearly all non-Roissyite gamers are just guys trying to get laid. While these guys are wrong to believe in game, they don’t share the insanity of the Roissyite gamers. These non-Roissyite gamers don’t believe in conspiracy theory, white supremacism, etc. The so called manosphere is in the most extreme insane fringe of game. The same thing happened with conspiracy theory as we see with the so called manosphere’s belief in the black helicopters conspiracy theory. While all conspiracy theorists are insane, the so called manosphere makes regular conspiracy theorists look sane.
It’s not enough for the so called manosphere to believe in conspiracy theory. They have to dredge up the most discredited and silly conspiracy theories out there (just like how they have dredged up phrenology which was discredited a century ago and is among the most insane portions of pseudoscience).
