French Comic Apologises For Mocking Conspiracy Theorists

Your News Wire
Link
A French comedian has come under fire on Twitter after appearing in a state-sponsored propaganda video aimed at discrediting conspiracy theories.  Kevin Razy appeared in a video that claims ‘dangerous’ conspiracy theories have mushroomed since the Paris attacks. In the video Razy makes fun of young conspiracy theorists who believe the Paris attacks were secretly orchestrated by the government. RT.com reports: In the Education Ministry’s campaign video, titled “You’re being manipulated” and posted online on the French government website, Razy makes fun of a wide-eyed youngster, who is reading an article “explaining that the secret service organized the Paris attacks.” After it turns out that the article is published on a conspiracy website, Razy tells the teen: “You should always verify your sources.” But it turns out Razy may have actually failed to properly verify his own sources just recently. A video emerged showing him at a dinner discussion last month with the Cercle des Volontaires, a website for anti-government conspiracy buffs. Among other guests present there was a YouTube vlogger known as Le D├ębrancheur who had once invited college students to ask questions to their teachers on the relationship between the rise of Hitler and the Rothschilds, according to Street Press.

Feds Investigate Corporate Sabotage At GMO-Free Chipotle Restaurants

Chipotle have been forced to close the doors of two thousand restaurants in order to hold a meeting regarding the suspected outbreak of E. coli in some of their restaurants.  Chipotle staff as well as authorities, including the CDC and FDA, have been unable to determine the source of the E. coli outbreak and have said that the GMO-free fast-food chain may be the victim of corporate sabotage due to their tough stance against genetically engineered food. Thesleuthjournal.com reports: You may remember that last year Chipotle was the first restaurant chain to announce that it would phase out the use of genetically modified foods, also known as “G.M.O.’s”. Shortly thereafter, and quite mysteriously, an E. coli outbreak was reported, across fourteen states, from Washington to Pennsylvania, and only in Chipotle restaurants. According the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (C.D.C.), the odds of an E. coli outbreak crossing a single state line is only three percent, as restaurants generally buy their produce and meat regionally for freshness. The likelihood of an E. coli outbreak crossing fourteen state lines, coast to coast, is probably a small fraction of one percent. Additionally, as many restaurant chains use produce and meat from the [...]

The French government has announced ‘war’ on the spreading of conspiracy theories in schools, saying that they believe conspiracies to give fuel to extremists who seek to radicalize young people.  Authorities in France are desperately trying to battle the radicalization of young people in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks, even though a significant portion of French people do not believe the official version of the story. Thelocal.fr reports: Education Minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem (pictured below) spent Tuesday hosting a conference on the topic of fighting the spread of conspiracies at schools. The all-day conference, held at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, saw around 300 people in attendance, including students, teachers, psychologists and lawyers. The aim is to start a discussion about the dangers of conspiracy theories, especially after terror attacks set tongues wagging in French school yards over the past year. One group of 16-year-olds told the BFM TV channel that there was something “fishy”, for example, about the death of the policeman during last January’s terror attacks. “You can’t see any blood in the video,” said a boy called Julien. “He gets a bullet through the head but there’s no blood – only dust?” Other [...]

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) have officially recognised that antidepressants, including the use of SSRI’s, risks the lives of  mental health patients that take them.  In a paper published by Professor Peter C Gotzsche, entitled “Suicidality and aggression during antidepressant treatment: systematic review and meta-analyses based on clinical study reports,” Gotzsche concludes that after studying 18,526 patients, those who were prescribed antidepressant medication had an increased risk of suicide and aggression. Wakingscience.com reports: What the researchers concluded from their extensive retrospective study of pharmaceutical trials dealing with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) was that for children and adolescents, the risks for suicidality and aggression doubled. What are some of the pharmaceuticals involved? Antidepressants Prozac® and its knock off-type drugs: Celexa®, Lexapro®, Luvox®, Paxil®, and Zoloft®, plus Effexor®, Remeron®, Serzone®, and Wellbutrin®. What the BMJ paper’s authors concluded brings to mind that in many of the mass shootings and horrible events that have occurred in the USA in recent years, several of the perpetrators were known to have been taking, had been taking, or getting off mood altering prescription drugs. Still, the BMJ paper states that: It is widely believed that the risk of suicide is not [...]
