Birds Aren't Real!
Inside a Gen Z Conspiracy Theory.
“Peter McIndoe, the 23-year-old creator of the viral Birds Aren’t Real movement, is ready to reveal what the effort is really about.”
The headlines and the lead photo are pulled from this revealing NYTimes article by Taylor Lorenz. I write to help spread the truth about birds. I had no idea.
Did you know that all real American Birds have been killed and replaced with identical government operated Bipedal Information Reconnaissance Drones? This is a project that had it’s origins in the Eisenhower administration. The drones have been spying on us all this time!
Watch this video from 1987. Know the truth. Join the Bird Brigade.
We reached out to the Audubon Society for comment. They were speechless.
From the NYTimes article:
“Mr. McIndoe, too, marinated in conspiracies. For his first 18 years, he grew up in a deeply conservative and religious community with seven siblings outside Cincinnati, then in rural Arkansas. He was home-schooled, taught that “evolution was a massive brainwashing plan by the Democrats and Obama was the Antichrist,” he said.”
But, he said:
“I was raised by the internet, because that’s where I ended up finding a lot of my actual real-world education, through documentaries and YouTube,” Mr. McIndoe said. “My whole understanding of the world was formed by the internet.”
To sum it up, here are some more extracts from the Times article:
”In September, shortly after a restrictive new abortion law went into effect in Texas, Birds Aren’t Real members showed up at a protest held by anti-abortion activists at the University of Cincinnati. Supporters of the new law “had signs with very graphic imagery and were very aggressive in condemning people,” Mr. McIndoe said. “It led to arguments.”
But the Bird Brigade began chanting, “Birds aren’t real.” Their shouts soon overpowered the anti-abortion activists, who left.”
“It’s a way to combat troubles in the world that you don’t really have other ways of combating,” said Claire Chronis, 22, a Birds Aren’t Real organizer in Pittsburgh. “My favorite way to describe the organization is fighting lunacy with lunacy.”
