This week, I wanted to try something a little different. We’ve often covered a number of weird and strange things on the Internet, like Kaly’s article on crazy Valentine message generators. And yes, sometimes we like to poke fun at people, like Tina’s great article on 15 funny Yahoo answers.
Some of you may know that I’ve been rather active in an alternative community that most people out there may consider rather “odd” – to say the least. There was a hint of this in my article on how to research weird science claims. Like many other “normal” folks that wade into the dark waters of the paranormal, I do like to consider myself rational, somewhat skeptical but also open minded. During the half-decade, the one thing I’ve come to realize is that there are a lot of very insane people in the world. I don’t mean to be facetious, but I’ve noticed there are many people in the world that have chosen to believe in certain things that you and I would consider completely strange, irrational, and downright crazy.
8 Crazy & Insane Twitter Quotes
I went out searching on Twitter for some of the most “out-there” folks that I know of, in order to show you just what can happen to a person that decides to take a walk a little too far down the rabbit hole.
The first choice was very easy. For those of you that know about Alfred Webre, then you’ve probably heard about Exopolitics and the fringe community of folks that believe the existence of aliens visiting Earth is a foregone conclusion. They believe we need to start a political outreach program to co-exist with them.
Alfred is one of the primary leaders, and following his Twitter page, you’ll be treated to regular updates of alien cooperation.
A few select quotes from Alfred’s Twitter stream:
“NASA Whistleblower: Alien Moon Cities Exist”
“ET Council: War with grey-Draco reptilian ETs is won, no false flag ET invasion”
“Russian cosmonaut Popovich: ETs warn Cataclysms will unify human consciousness”
Seriously…you can’t make this stuff up.
Next up is an organization called “Project Camelot”, founded by Kerry Cassidy and Bill Ryan. They teamed up to promote various Ufology and paranormal hoaxes, all under the guise of supporting “whistleblowers”. As you can see from the Project Camelot Twitter stream and website, “whistleblowers” consist of just about anyone that claims they have former top secret clearances.
A few choice morsels from the Camelot Twitter stream:
“CamelotForum.com:: Alien Intervention in US Debt Deal”
“CamelotForum.com:: Extraterrestrial salvation from the Doom?”
Steven Greer is probably the most most misunderstood man throughout Ufology. There are a lot of people who believe he is simply undertaking an effort to promote the disclosure of what the government knows about UFOs.
In reality, Greer actually believes that there are multiple species of aliens already making contact, and at his website, CSETI.org, he offers you the chance to attend one of his “ambassador” trainings where he’ll teach you how to make contact with aliens for a small “training fee” of only $2,500.
Greer has tweeted:
“Ambassador to the Universe Training/Expedition – March 6 – 12 […] Space is still available!”
“Suppression attempts are hindering efforts to bring free energy to the world.”
So, beyond the world of aliens and UFOs, you’ll also find some pretty odd folks in the fields of parapsychology and psychic research as well. One guy in particular posts infuriatingly conclusive claims about things for which there is zero evidence. His name is Gary Bekkum, and his shtick is making claims that various psychic predictions have come true.
Bekkum has tweeted:
“New 9/11 Specific Credible Threat, Unconfirmed, Was Foreseen By Psychic Spy”
“9/11 predicted by 1986 psychic spies? Air attack on NYC and Washington, collapse of buildings in future newspapers..”
Um…yeah. So anyway…
Moving on to a guy we all know – the one and only Al Gore. Al Gore issuing crazy tweets? Well, it wasn’t always that way, until he became completely obsessed with global warming caused by humans. Now it’s all you hear about from his stream.
“Wall Street Journal gets it wrong on climate again.”
“The Great Lakes are in danger”
“Ice could be melting faster than we thought”
Doesn’t the guy have a day job?
Richard Dolan is a self-proclaimed “historian of Ufology”. In reality, he is yet another Ufology author distributing the New Age belief that the world is on the cusp of being greeted by aliens the moment we achieve an elevated state of enlightenment.
Odd Dolan Tweets:
“I created a new video: The UFO Cover-Up in 10 Minutes. Enjoy!”
“About to fly to Las Vegas for the 7th annual Crash Retrieval Conference.”
Jack Sarfatti. What can I say about this guy? If you’ve heard of quantum physics and cosmology, then it’s possible that you’ve heard of this fringe physicist that dabbles in the realm of UFOs, parapsychology, and other mystical topics. If you’re looking for some pretty out-of-this-world tweets, the Sarfatti stream won’t let you down.
A few select Sarfatti Twitter morsels:
“Freaked out driver tail-gated by UFO”
“New Footage: Bigfoot Sighting in Adirondacks, NY”
Bigfoot, UFOs, and the physics behind alien craft…gotta love it.
Once again, I’ve decided to save the best (or worst) for last. Michael Salla is also a leader in the Exopolitics movement. The difference with Salla is that he doesn’t even try to hide his outrageous beliefs – he just dishes out the crazy tweets like it’s going out of style.
My favorite crazy Salla quotes:
“Did Comet Elenin disintegrate or reveal alien energy shield?”
“New videos reveal celestials helping humanity with extraterrestrial technology”
“National Geographic promotes alien invasion scenario. Are we being prepared for a false flag alien invasion?”
