NOTE: Please see the latest post regarding PGI, located here.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to Project Gulf Impact. It’s meme: “From the Gulf Stream to the bloodstream and why what you’re about to read is the alarm bell of the pending Gulf disaster.”
Project Gulf Impact (we’ll shorten that to PGI) is the newest, latest and greatest incarnation of the truther movement. You know. “Ask questions. Seek the truth.” Then ignore the truth when given, and ask even more asinine questions. If it sounds familiar, it should. If PGI sounds a lot like “Loose Change,” it should.
According to this whois.net report, Project Gulf Impact is a website established by Gavin Garrison, a Santa Barbara, California graduate student at USC. Hmm. California graduate students sound like natural experts on oil spill impacts in the Gulf of Mexico, don’t they?
If Gavin Garrison sounds a lot like Dylan Avery, he should. After all, if film school rejects can speak truth to power about collapsing skyscrapers, then film school students in California can speak truth to power about oil spills 1,900 miles away, right? Right.
Garrison’s filmograghy includes the NOAA-sponsored “Proof or Propaganda.” Want to guess which side the film falls on?
As is usual with new, exciting and scary conspiracy theories, Garrison, PGI and their mentally challenged ilk have developed a rather devoted following. It’s the usual collection of Black Helicopter watchers, including several Examiner.com nodes and blog websites like Prison Planet and Godlike Productions. Their latest: A story alleging that a group of [ahem] California filmmakers were sickened by mysterious poisons while investigating “the truth” about the oil spill in [gag] “Nazi America.” The film crew was allegedly working for… guess who? PGI, of course!
These people take themselves very seriously but apparently don’t investigate their allies very closely. Upon reaching the Pelican State, the allegedly sickened PGI crew hooked up with one of New Orleans biggest moonbats: Casey Nunez.
Never heard of Casey? Really? Maybe you’ve heard him referred to as Casey Kaine, The Psycho Hurricane. Or Crackhead Frankenstein. In his own words:
I'm 6"6 245 latent homosexual and come from New Orleans Louisiana USA. My friends call me "Beefy Tits". My grand father was A pitcher with the N.Y. Yankees that's how I came to have the Name Casey and more than likely where I Got the explosive knock out Bone crushing power of my right punches and kicks. My Power high Kick is 96.6 Inches or 8ft. At Age 16 I ran away with The Royal Hanneford circus and have done dates in every State in America over a 20 year period with my personal favorites being Michigan adventure in Muskegon. The ice palace in Tampa Florida, the mid Hudson civic center in Poughkeepsie New York and also the Yonkers raceway during the New York State Fair. My All time Favorite Date however by far would have to be The Great Circus Parade in Milwaukee Wisconsin since Its held during Summer fest so I always got to get in free to see all of the shows with my circus pass. I was a tour Guide here in new orleans on a mule drawn carriage at Jackson square and I also Worked as bouncer at the Tricou House 711 Bourbon Street where I lived in the Haunted 3rd floor attic suite which over looked bourbon street. In 1984 I became friends with Tommy Lee of the Heavy Metal Band Motley crue and Jake e. Lee Lead Guitarist for Ozzy after coming to their aid during a fight at the Dungeon in new Orleans.
I swear on a barrel of Corexit, I’m not making this up.
Nunez has a long, sordid history as a YouTube troll. This is apparently what attracted the PGI crew to Nunez. He’s also the guy behind this notorious “raining oil” hoax:
Hey, if a troll like Nunez can make a video that fools The Drudge Report and Russia Today, he’s GOT to be the guy PGI hooks up with, right?
What a fine, honest, upstanding bunch of wackos we’ve got here. Asking questions. Seeking truth.
I have an honest question—who is the worse group of idiots: Gavin, Nunez, Dupre, et al, or the fools who believe their garbage?
