UFO Buster Radio News – 301: Are Reptilians Real?
Cult leader describes murderer as ‘vampire witch reptilian super-soldier’
“My boyfriend had a gun,” Barbara Rogers told the operator from a home in Coolbaugh Township, Pennsylvania, about 110 miles north of Philadelphia. “He told me to hold it here and press the trigger. Oh my God, he’s dead!”
When police arrived at the tan double-wide trailer, inside they found 32-year-old Steven Mineo dead from a close-range .45 bullet wound in his forehead.
Rogers was arrested and charged with her boyfriend’s murder.
But behind what first appeared to be a simple domestic killing, investigators soon found a bizarre backstory involving an extra-terrestrial cult that had swallowed up both Rogers and Mr Mineo.
According to the Pocono Record, as Rogers’s first-degree murder trial began in March. She claimed in court the couple had gotten into a disagreement with the leader of the cult, who preaches a heady stew of alien conspiracy theories, apocalyptic biblical interpretation and warnings about “reptilian” extraterrestrials living secretly as humans.
Rogers claimed a distraught Mineo had placed the gun in her hands and pulled the trigger. She said she did not know the gun was loaded.
On Monday morning, a judge sentenced the 44-year-old to 15 to 40 years in prison, BRCTV 13 reported.
The sentencing did not sit well with victim’s family.
“To me, it’s amazing that somebody could put a gun to somebody’s head, blow their brains out essentially, and a jury finds them guilty of third-degree murder and not first?” Jackie Mineo, the victim’s aunt, told BRCTV 13. “She got a break, she got a big break today.”
Ms Shriner told NJ.com she believed Rogers was a “vampire witch reptilian super-soldier”.
The split seems to have started when Rogers wrote Facebook posts talking about her cravings for red meat and preference for steak tartare.
Ms Shriner believed red meat was a sign that a person was actually reptilian.
“There’s only certain types of people who crave the raw meat, because they crave the blood. Those with the vampire demon in them,” Ms Shriner said in a YouTube video, according to NJ.com.
Conspiracy craze: why 12 million Americans believe alien lizards rule us
Psychologists are trying to determine why otherwise rational individuals can make the leap from “prudent paranoia” to illogical conspiracy theories
According to a Public Policy Polling survey, around 12 million people in the US believe that interstellar lizards in people suits rule our country. We imported that particular belief from across the pond, where professional conspiracy theorist David Icke has long maintained that the Queen of England is a blood-drinking, shape-shifting alien.
Conspiracy theories in general are not necessary bad, according to psychologists who study them. “If we were all completely trusting, it would not be good for survival,” explains Rob Brotherton, an academic psychologist and author of Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories. “Sometimes people really don’t have our best interests in mind.”
But when people leap from thinking their boss is trying to undermine them to believing their boss might be a secret lizard person, they probably cross from what psychologists refer to as “prudent paranoia” into illogical territory.
And there are a lot of illogical ideas to pick from. Around 66 million Americans believe that aliens landed at Roswell, New Mexico; around 22 million people believe that the government faked the moon landing; and around 160 million believe that there is a conspiracy surrounding the assassination of former US president John F Kennedy.
Chances are, we all know someone who believes some version of a conspiracy theory, which is why psychologists have been trying to understand what makes someone jump from logically questioning the world to looking for signs of lizard teeth in public figures.
Joseph E Uscinski, associate professor of political science at the University of Miami and author of American Conspiracy Theories, puts it, “conspiracies are for losers”.
Conspiracies are for losers … people who are out of power use them to strategically close ranks, to salve their wounds.
“I don’t mean it in the pejorative sense, but people who are out of power use conspiracy theories to strategically alert their side to danger, to close ranks, to salve their wounds,” Uscinski explains. “Think any election, the morning after, half the country says the election was rigged and the other half is happy.”
