ANDREW KLAVAN (HOST): Now, today what I want to talk about is something that's being called a conspiracy theory from Donald Trump and, we get this a lot. And conspiracy theories are funny things because -- I don't talk about them a lot because most of them are so crazy, but in a world where the news media is almost universally lying to us - they're not doing any reporting, they're spreading hateful generalizations about people they don't like immediately, they're not getting the facts, they're not telling people to be patient and wait for the facts, they're spurring the violence on. If there's a shooting and the victim is Black and the cop -- and a cop shot him, then immediately it must be a racist killing and they spread that before you even get to find out oh, guess what, George Floyd was actually a guy who held hostages and Jacob Blake was actually an accused rapist. Before you get those -- that information, you're already -- the riots have already started.
So the other day they asked Trump about QAnon. And that's not what I'm going to be talking about but, you know, Trump made some trolly remark about QAnon. They said "Oh he's, you know, dealing with this far-right conspiracy theory." Wikipedia defines QAnon saying it's "a far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan worshiping pedophiles running a global child sex trafficking ring is plotting against Donald Trump, who's battling them. No part of the theory is based on fact."
And I back off for a minute and I think, okay, that's a crazy conspiracy theory, I grant that. But no part of it is based on fact? There's no Jeffrey Epstein who was sex trafficking underage girls to people who may have included an English prince and a former President of the United States? That didn't happen? He didn't go to prison and hang himself in a high security cell with no guards to watch him, with no video -- suddenly all the video cameras were broken? And you wonder why these people have conspiracy theories about this stuff? We don't think people in Hollywood are abusing children every single day in an epidemic of abuse?
You know, really, the thing is this is a conspiracy theory but it's a conspiracy theory that's brought about by the fact that something is going on and the news media is not reporting it. Those two things go together. And they form a crazy conspiracy theory, but it's not based on nothing.
