Megan Fox (a YouTuber who shares the name of the well-known actress) went viral when she ranted about the problems she found in a museum’s evolution exhibit, and now she’s back to share her zoo conspiracy theories. It seems that the zoo is trying to convert people to the “religion of secularism, religion of evolution and Darwinism and Scientism,” according to Fox, at the end of the 11-minute “part 1” video in the series.
Megan explains her zoo conspiracy theories at length on her Facebook page, but here’s a short sample.
“The comprehensive audit you asked for of the Brookfield Zoo and its anti-human, prejudiced agenda to teach children that they are bad and there is nothing particularly special about animals that they should know about. It’s just a whole lot of guilt trips, apocalyptic paranoia and Leftist religion…”
The first video in the series has had over 46,000 views, but the settings don’t allow comments, and ratings aren’t shown, so it isn’t immediately easy to gauge how people are reacting to Megan’s conspiracy theories.
Some interesting points in the video.
She opens with an angry rant about water conservation, saying it has nothing to do with the zoo, and that the real reason to conserve water is saving money, not ecological reasons.
At 3:30, she sidetracks from zoo conspiracy theories to discuss a Prius commercial in which a kid washes a car in the rain.
At 7:50, the cameraperson notes that “even the lefties” aren’t playing the game with stones and ecological choices.
At 8:50, this quote comes out.
“When we wanna feel like good people, we are kind to one another. Or we go to church.”
This video is just the beginning of Fox’s zoo conspiracy audit, a 13-part series totaling nearly an hour of footage.
Though there are no comments on the videos, on Fox’s Facebook page there are. Many think the zoo conspiracy theorist is a parody account, mocking right-wing stances on ecology, economy, and religion.
“I love your talent – your comedic strength is unmatchable…”
Comments there seem to be disappearing too, though.
“Why do I see # of comments but can’t read them?”
Still, there are enough to show that at least some viewers think that Megan Fox is a comedian, and that her conspiracy theories are all works of parody. Her own comments don’t do much to dispel that notion. In response to the comment above, for instance, Fox’s page replies with mockery.
“There is no shame in admitting that you can’t read. That’s the first step to getting help. We support you and your efforts towards better adult literacy. Stay the course, study hard and thanks for being a fan!”
There are also posts from the page that appear less than serious themselves.
“DID DRAGONS SUCH AS T-REX BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS? Show me proof that they didn’t.”
However, there’s an important point against this hopeful notion: Fox has pursued actions against a library, Orland Park library, where she says the internet filters are too narrow and permit access to porn and other objectionable material. According to the Chicago Tribune, Fox has cost the library over $125k in FOIA requests, and frequently creates disputes at the library, requiring police intervention.
All of this points to the woman behind the zoo conspiracy theories being quite serious, despite the apparent frivolousness of many of her objections.
