This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! on 3CR we talk to Mike Rothschild [Twitter/X]. Last time we spoke to Mike (July 2021) we talked about his book about that stormy nonsense called QAnon and — 100 episodes later(!) — Mike’s back to tell us about how to build a Jewish Space Laser.
Actually, Mike has a new book out called Jewish Space Lasers: The Rothschilds and 200 Years of Conspiracy Theories (Melville House Publishing) which drops next week and which ‘looks at how one Jewish family —the Rothschilds—became a lightning rod for the conspiracy theories of the last two centuries, and how those theories are still very much alive today’ and:
is a deeply researched dive into the history of the conspiracy industry around the Rothschild family – from the “pamphlet wars” of Paris in the 1840s to the dankest pits of the internet today. Journalist and conspiracy theory expert Mike Rothschild, who isn’t related to the family, sorts out myth from reality to find the truth about these conspiracy theories and their spreaders. Who were the Rothschilds? Who are they today? Do they really own $500 trillion and every central bank, in addition to “controlling the British money supply?” Is any of this actually true? And why, even as their wealth and influence have waned, do they continue to drive conspiracies and hoaxes?
