WhistleblowerSays Robots are Already Killing Humans and are Coming for Us!
This conspiracy theory about AI robots killing 29 Japanese scientists has gone viral.
In this era of AI, the internet has a hunger for nothing more than a good conspiracy theory, and now there’s a new one to rank top on the list.
A female journalist named Linda Moulton Howe has claimed that four artificially intelligent robots killed 29 scientists in a lab in Japan in 2017.
In December 2018, a video was filmed at Los Angeles Conscious Life Expo, where Linda Moulton Howe, a journalist who is well known for peddling conspiracy theories, spoke about how the existence of artificial intelligence (AI) and robots is going to be a threat to humanity. The video went viral on social media, as did a subsequent Facebook post, which contains a small clip of the expo video. In this short clip, Howe told an alleged incident where four AI robots killed 29 scientists in a lab in Japan. Journalist and conspiracy theorist Linda Moulton Howe narrated the story at the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles, and a video from the event has now gone viral after being highly circulated on social media.
In her speech about artificial intelligence and alien encounters, Howe recalls a phone call she stated she had with a former marine who had been working for the CIA. She stated: “At a top robotics company in Japan this week, four AI robots being developed for military applications killed 29 humans in the lab. And they did it by shooting what he called metal bullets.
I didn’t know there was any other kind.” Howe further added: “The scariest part is that lab workers deactivated two of the robots and took apart the third. But the fourth robot began restoring itself and somehow connected to an orbiting satellite to download information about how it could rebuild itself even more strongly than before. This is serious s*** Linda, but you’re not going to hear about this in the news. The robotics company has too much to lose, and the government wants AI robot soldiers.”
Linda Moulton Howe, the teller of this tale looks like a Hollywood screenwriter but originally she has a background in journalism. She is a Stanford graduate and a former Miss Idaho, Howe won awards in the 1970s and ’80s for her outstanding work at Denver, Atlanta, and Boston TV stations. But somewhere along the line she became fascinated by UFOs and conspiracy theories. “She is probably the most preeminent UFO investigator in the world,” fellow ufologist Ike Bishop mentioned of Howe in 1998.
Howe believes space aliens have fallen upon Earth many times, but right now she’s more focused on robots created by Earthlings. She believes the massacre of the scientists has been hushed up because “the robotics company has too much to lose, and the government wants AI robot soldiers.”
Her speech took place back in February, but it’s only just taken off online. The Independent reports that the video of Howe’s talk has been viewed more than 100,000 times on Twitter this week. The very same week, it so happens, that a mysterious drone (or drones) repeatedly dive-bombed London’s Gatwick Airport, forcing the airport to close for more than a day.
To be sure, Howe’s AI robot-massacre story is a tough one for any rational person to buy into. It’s based on a phone interview she conducted with someone allegedly from the CIA, who told her: “This is serious s—t, Linda, but you’re not going to hear about this in the news.” When you’re a prominent conspiracy theorist like Howe, you’re going to be the target of pranksters and nuts. None of which means we have nothing to worry about. Robots might not have confidentially murdered a clutch of scientists in Japan – but that could change.
It’s highly likely that if 29 scientists died in a lab in Japan, this news would have spread pretty quickly around the world. The video of the speech is trending and has been retweeted more than 110,000 times on Twitter, and many people seem to genuinely believe Howe’s story. These alleged deaths were claimed by a journalist known to spread conspiracy theories.
