He was serious. I didn't know how to respond so I changed the subject.

Not gonna lie, I'd probably drop them as friends.

Seriously though, why does there have to always be some master plan, some hidden hand pulling the strings? The world is chaotic and messy, terrible things happen, and seeing conspiracy theorists do crazy mental gymnastics to prove that things are orchestrated by overlords just tells me that they lack control of their own lives.

I know someone like that. He thinks that every terrorist attack or mass shooting occurring anywhere in the world is the work of the US military, CIA, or the Israeli Mossad and he comes up with some unreal, complicated, and ridiculously twisted theories as to why.
I was a bit reluctant to cut ties with him at first, because I'd known him for many years and he was always a bit of a harmless goof, but I finally got tired of hearing his conspiracy theory lunacy every time I ran into him and dropped him as a friend. I haven't run into him since just before COVID started and I'm glad I haven't had to listen to his ideas on that subject.

You're on the nose regarding these people and their ridiculous conspiracy theories. My friend brought it up again and I said to him, maybe there is propaganda coming from both sides but you can't tell me that millions of Ukrainians left the country for no reason. He also tried to say that all these reports are coming from America who has previously started wars in other countries so this is most likely the same. I agreed with his sentiments regarding America's past but fully disagreed that Ukraine is making things up. There are journalists actually witnessing the atrocities in Ukraine and the satellite imagery is literally proof of further mass graves like in Bucha. I won't be talking about it again. He's in his late 50's so stuck in his ways regarding certain subjects.

I'm glad you are no longer hearing his verbal diarrhea, especially during this pandemic.

Have you tried telling him that Putin is a cuck who jerks off to interracial trans porn?

One of my best friends ever Joe was a huge conspiracy theorist to the point that's why i don't have contact cause dude lives pretty much off the grid and when i had his number he literally never had his phone on.

He was more interesting as a person than the vast majority of people I've ever met.

More on topic video... There's an embedded ad at around 1:30 to 3:18. Watch the intro then when you get to the ad skip to 3:18 for optimum viewing experience.

Is there something wrong with watching trans porn? Other than people loving trans people as a fetish.

Absolutely not. I jerk off to it myself. But Putin supporters generally support Russia as an anti-woke state that discriminates against minorities and is ruled by a strongman who projects strength, so inverting that to make them mad is good praxis.
