Wacky conspiracies being pushed at Whale Oil

Whale Oil has increasingly become an outlet for wacky right wing agendas and conspiracy theorists. They are also increasingly Wail Oil, claiming to be ‘poor me’ Christians under attack by everyone while the United Nations takes over the world (the UN is not known for being effective or powerful).

They increasingly rage against ‘the media’ and claim to be some sort of truth seeking alternative, but use that same media for a lot of their content.

They are also now an outlet for the New Conservative Party (after having trashed the Conservative Party), which must be desperate for attention using the now politically toxic blog.

One contributor is Dieuwe de Boer, who is described at Whale Oil

I’m the first of a new breed of young gun-totin’, Bible-bashin’, conservative family men fighting against left-wing regressives. Either that or I’m making a heroic last stand for freedom as the sun sets on Christian civilisation.
You can find more of me on Right Minds NZ.

A post by him on Sunday, Only activism remains when journalism dies, concludes:

We shall see if journalism decides to make a comeback, but until then the partisan activists masquerading as journalists can keep wondering why we don’t want to talk to them. Why would we waste our time when the end product will be fake news regardless of what we say or don’t say?

They really are the enemy of the people and the enemy of the truth.

Yesterday another contributor Max Sky addressed “Dear New Zealand Mainstream media” in We see through the lies:

Currently, we do have choices such as Whaleoil and Fox News available in New Zealand via the internet, channels that have chosen to deliver the other side of the story. However, the left-leaning MSM choose to exaggerate the views expressed on these sites to amplify their own message.

Just because Jacinda is a Socialist Prime Minister you publish everything she says unchallenged.

That’s just plain bullshit.

You put Jacinda on our screens and quote her in your tweets and stories but never hold her to account or query her connection with the UN. 

Perhaps because the ‘UN is taking over the world’ conspiracy is not backed by any facts, just implied like this with no evidence provided.

The irony is that if Jacinda gets her way and enables internet censorship, the free market MSM will soon cease to exist as there will be only one ‘Pravda’ channel. Alternative views will be banned. You will no longer be able to provide both sides of an argument, enable critical thinking, or facilitate a true understanding about what is happening around us.

This sort of ‘the end is nigh for free speech’ claim – without being based on facts – has become common at WO. It is nothing more than a wacky conspiracy theory. Perhaps those chemtrails are getting to them.

It’s not too late to live up to your position as the Fourth Estate.

Perhaps you could start by asking questions about:

  • Who is financing the left wing, Mainstream media?
  • Who is financing the UN which is led by a confirmed Socialist politician?
  • Why is the Human Rights Council ‘stacked and backed’ by oil money perhaps purchasing arms to fund Jihad against the West and Israel?
  • Why the EU calls on the USA to fund their military for the defence of Europe against the Russians when their oil and gas supplies are reliant on Russian supply?

In a world where powerful Marxist people lie so brazenly and the mainstream media amplify the lies, eventually, the people will rebel.

Asking questions is a way of asserting things without supporting anything with facts.

This ‘other side of the story’ truth seeking is nonsense, but it is where WO is veering as it continues to lose relevance. I guess there’s money to be made from those who seek immoral support for nutty and extreme agenda mongering, but they are unlikely to raise a rabble let alone a rebellion.

        I am unlikely to be alone in feeling astonished that the WOs consider themselves to be Christians ! A Christian organisation whose name is a cod Irish accent obscenity ? I think not.

      How about a Trump version, “cuckoo” on the hour and half hour with Trump out and tweeting, made in China of course.

        I found the voice annoying, especially as he kept saying that they were ‘coo coo’ clocks.

    What is it with Abrahamic religions that their followers can’t see that their Holy Books are full of fake news?

          The time of the fake news….

          No, but I didn’t make the claim that it was fake news.

          Christianity is an excellent religion. but it’s spoiled by being full of Christians.

            The most surprising thing is that it’s outlasted the flat earth theory.

              The Flat Earth theory is alive and well and would astonish people who were around when the world supposedly believed that the Earth was flat.

              The least convincing argument was from the woman who asked if it felt as if we were spinning at ?kph – no – then we weren’t. Anyone who’s flown will know that it doesn’t feel as if they’re travelling at whatever speed the plane is actually moving.

    So what has our PM been trying to do recently? Oh, yeah, control social media. Er, I have only seen ( alleged) chem trails once…that was in Otago. ( a checker board pattern).

    ‘Poor me’ Christians under attack by everyone.’

    Isn’t that a fact? Or don’t dead Christian count in such a debate. Sorry, I got that wrong . I meant Sunday Worshippers as opposed to Muslims in a mosque.?

      Are the Christian “martyrs” actually being killed because of their religion or for another reason such as tribalism? Here is another question, are more Christians killed annually by other Christians (for example Northern Ireland) or by people of different religions.

      The genocide in Rwanda was Christian on Christian, Demoocratic Republic of Congo Christian on Christian, not a lot of listening to “thou shalt not commit murder” by these Christians.

        We could just find out the number of Muslims killed by Christians and compare it .
        No wait.
        That might make Christians look like a bunch of violent lawless primitive thugs.

        Total Number of possible terrorists in al Qaeda at the time of 9/11 a few hundred.
        Number directly killed in the resulting retaliatory war on terror lead by the Christian USA
        500,000………
        Four failed states many more extremist Muslims and no end in sight for the bloodshed.
        You reap what you sow.

          We use UK English here; the word is chequerboard. Corky seems to think that he lives in America.

          There aren’t many deaths in Ulster now, but unless Islamic terrorists have overtaken the IRA with numbers killed in England, the IRA’s reign of terror resulted in more deaths,

          Not everyone who calls themselves a Christian is one. I know many whose lives and actions bear little resemblance to their professed beliefs. I don’t think that all Christians are hypocrites, but far too many seem to be of the all talk and no do persuasion.

            Chem trails are a conspiracy theory; the supposed reasons for them are too ridiculous to be credible . Mind control is one, birth control another. Spare me.
