Bohemian Club Fail
So far the absolute worst episode. In the end, they had no evidence and had no reason to come to any conclusion and aside from giving us a history and spreading the rumors, the episode was a fail. So a guy has a video of basically an old frat ritual and an obsessed woman has some fliers. Whoopedy do. There are dozens of well known gentlemen's clubs from private retreats like this one to frats like Skull and Bones. All of which are just self-serving power providers and networking hubs.
What got me the most was their 'outrage' over behind-the-door policy making. Okay, sorry but news flash: ALL POLICYMAKING IS PRIVATE! It's done in closed meetings with party members or senators offices and then it gets floated to other members and poll-tested and eventually an entire law is written to be submitted to congress to vote on. None of which the public directly influences or sees until it's shown on C-Span.
I especially love the ending "this country wasn't created by a secret council" or something of that sort. It is impressively ignorant. This country was created by a bunch of men of means and power who met, in SECRET, and committed treason against their King by penning the Declaration of Independence. If that was not a 'hush hush' gathering of powerful legislators and doctors and lawyers and businessmen deciding the direction of this country then what is?!
