Snowden, Nazis, Aliens… OH MY

This is amusing other than the fact that there are undoubtedly people who think this is true.

Iranian news agency says the U.S. is secretly run by Nazi space aliens. Really..

On Sunday, the hard-line semi-official Fars News dropped one of its biggest bombshells yet: The United States government has been secretly run by a “shadow government” of space aliens since 1945. Yes, space aliens. The alien government is based out of Nevada and had previously run Nazi Germany. It adds, for timeliness, that the controversial NSA programs are actually a tool for the aliens to hide their presence on Earth and their secret agenda for global domination. This is all asserted as incontrovertible fact with no caveats.

There are so many wonderful details here. As proof that aliens were secretly behind the Nazis, the report explains that Germany built hundreds of submarines toward the end of the war, far more than would have been possible with mere human technology. It does not explain why aliens with access to interstellar travel built subs that were so grossly incapable against the British navy, or why all-powerful extraterrestrials were unable to help the Nazis resist an invasion by Allied forces that are mere cavemen relative to their own technology. So far, these are pretty unimpressive aliens.

The best part to all this, to me, is the sourcing. Fars News takes us through a veritable hall-of-mirrors of sources “confirming” their scoop. The progenitor of it all, of course, is ostensibly NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who has waited until now to reveal that the real reason for all those NSA programs is aliens. As best I can tell, Fars claims that Snowden gave this information to Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB). They also say it was independently confirmed by former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer. (Hellyer, who is 90, does indeed argue that aliens have visited Earth many times, though I haven’t seen him comment on this particular story.) The FSB, they say, put all this information down in a secret report, which was inexplicably obtained by the ultra-fringe conspiracy theory Web site,

Perhaps we shouldn’t be so surprised by the Fars News agency to post a story like this. After all they’re also the same news paper that posted a story from The Onion as real.

The author notes that this is entertaining but under the giggles, there is a bit of concern for what is acceptable as “news” these days. Crazy shit.

Maybe they just know that sensational nonsense brings in viewers. Snowden Documents Proving “US-Alien-Hitler” Link Stun Russia.

You use that word “prove…” Hilarious. Worrying. The nonsense of 2014 continues unabated. It’s going to be a VERY BUSY YEAR.

    When I read “Fars News” I can’t help but hear it pronounced as “Farce Snooze”.

    I seem to think this secret “alien” group is really people who learned they should call themselves aliens to sound more scary.

    I share both your giggles and concerns !
    And I also think this may be a national move by conservative forces against the more moderate Iranian gov.

    I thought this was only worthy of making the Leftovers. I’m happy you thought it rated a full post. These sorts of stories are the campfire tales of our electronic era. They tell much more about the teller. And it is a test to the reader to separate the tall tales from the “truth”. Especially when the tall tales wander off the parody sites.

    I think they took “Iron Sky” and a “Star Trek Enterprise” episode and mashed them up?

    The Iranian article is lifted from the Sorcha Faal website, the craziest place on the internet. Pretty much all its stories are sourced from the highest realms of Russian intelligence (making verification impossible — of course!).

    This is a brief rundown of the Sorcha Faal fraud.

    This story should regarded as satire.

    Any kind of article on the internet that reads like satire should regarded as satire, even if the author is entirely serious.

    After some of the things I have seen the govt do- I wouldn’t be a bit surprised. Things like the dumbing down of of the country, the anti vax crap, Texas….
