Operation Bigfoot - Spies among the Ranks
I recently watched the documentary Mirage Men, in a nut shell it was an inside look at how the military and other agencies covered up some of the UFO reports. How they would use some disinformation to hide not only real UFO reports but also to conceal secret military projects.
This got me to thinking back to something I had thought about many times. In the film they used gullible people or ones who made outrageous claims to plant disinformation. In some instances they even exchanged secret information and had special relationships with certain people in the UFO community. So, I have been thinking for some time now, that this is going on in the bigfoot community and has been for a long time now.
The majority of people/researchers in the bigfoot community think that the government do know about Sasquatch and attempt to cover it up for various reasons. How easy would it be to have "agents", for lack of a better term, deeply embedded within the bigfoot community. Once they were accepted in the bigfoot community they would gather information and spread false information about Sasquatch. Could some of the most outlandish stories and hoaxes just be something to discredit the truth that Sasquatch is real? To blur the lines?
I know you have all read the crazy headlines like: "Bigfoot ate my pizza", "I had bigfoots baby", or the numerous "I shot a bigfoot" claims. Could some of it just be well organized and planned events and stories? Then when no body is produced and no evidence is provided it becomes one of them "I told you so " moments, leaving the impression that it's all a big hoax and there is no such thing as a bigfoot.
We all know that some people become totally delusional about Sasquatch, they see 17 bigfoot in a photo of nothing but trees. Some even blur the photos on purpose because it helps you "see the bigfoots". How hard would it be for someone to take one of these people, who is totally obsessed with bigfoot and push their wild unbelievable stories? The field of bigfoot research is really looked at and laughed at because of the pushing of such unbelievable reports and stories. The general public thinks that bigfoot research is full of nothing but a bunch of nuts. Could this be the perception that some government agencies want? You know, to keep the field and subject of bigfoot comparable to fairy tales, mythology and folklore? That is what has happened to Ufology for many years now and was somewhat exposed in greater detail in the film Mirage Men. One man was actually drove insane by all of this and ended up in a insane asylum.
This could explain some of the crazy behavior, people and stories that come from the bigfoot community. Of course this is all speculation at this point but it could explain why debunked videos, photos and stories keep resurfacing like a floater that just won't go down. Why all evidence is never good enough, always questioned to the point that some researchers leave the bigfoot community and share almost nothing publicly.
Now, I'll use myself as an example, I know for a 100 percent fact bigfoot is real. I have encountered them, found evidence and taken witness reports from people I know would not make things up. I do share some things with the public but I'm not out to prove bigfoot to the world. I just know they are real and want to learn more about them. It's more of a personal knowledge type of thing for me but I do share for the people who have a genuine real interest in the subject. Some have criticized me for making documentary films and charging to view them. I'm not rich, it cost me a lot of money to do bigfoot research, I have no financial backer, so I have to off set it to continue.
That brings me to the next point, some "researchers" seem to be well funded and publicized. They never seems to produce much but always get a lot of attention. Could this funding and pushing of their tales be coming from some agency to help the disinformation keep coming? Could this be the same people that keep resurfacing every little bit? It just seems odd to me.
If you think about the UFO cover up and disinformation, if you think that something mysterious is worth studying then I guess it's worth covering up, at least to some people. Would it be any different for Sasquatch? A hidden, lost relic, highly intelligent human type species that has remained undiscovered or accepted by science for hundreds of years. What if, there is something more to Sasquatch and a deeper reason for keeping them undiscovered. How far would you go to keep them hid? How far would the government go? Does it extend to other governments?
So I guess the final question is ...
Do you think there is spies among the bigfoot community ?
My answer is a definite yes.
I know there is a lot more questions in this post than answers but to me it sure don't seem too far fetched to think that there is a lot of disinformation being spread about Sasquatch.
It don't bother me at all that bigfoot is not accepted by the mass public, those who really want to know the truth can find it. They can do research themselves or just continue to believe everything they see on the news.
Just like the old UFO cliché - The Truth Is Out There!
