It's exactly what the term "dog whistle" denotes. Just because you don't hear it, don't assume it's not very effective at making a bunch of stupid pack animals rabid.

Well it's a well-known fact, sonny-jim, that there's a secret society of the 5 wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually in a secret country mansion in Colorado known as The Meadows.

How can a society be both secret and a well-known fact, sonny-werewolf?

They're a really really really really bad secret society.

Good explanation. I run into trouble with this general concept (not anything as clearly laid out as your example) mostly because I frequently have no idea whether a given person is Jewish or not.

Unrelated to the thread... This is probably the biggest problem I have with most conspiracy theories, and why so many of them strike me as so unforgivably dumb. They simultaneoulsy have to be legit evil geniuses who are super secret... AND... complete morons who are totally transparent.

That's not the next line. You're supposed to ask who's in this Pentavirate.

I read this and was like, wait, is that what Jas based his account on!?

Googled "Jaskents", sure enough one of the top results is an AO thread. We're on the map!
