Meet Peter McIndoe, The Founder Of Birds Aren’t Real Movement
“Birds Aren’t Real” is a satirical conspiracy theory that posits that birds don’t exist and are really drone replicas installed by the U.S. government to spy on Americans.
The movement was started by Peter McIndoe right after the Donald Trump election. He explained to The Guardian, “I remember people walking around saying they felt as if they were in a movie. Things felt so unstable”. Looking out of the window he saw “counterprotesters, who were older, bigger white men. They were clear aggravators. They were encroaching on something that was not their event, they had no business being there”.
He added, “it felt like chaos because the world felt like chaos”.
Then, Peter made a placard and went out to join the march. “It’s not like I sat down and thought I’m going to make a satire. I just thought: ‘I should write a sign that has nothing to do with what is going on.’ An absurdist statement to bring to the equation”. The statement he wrote was “birds aren’t real”.
Curious protestors asked what his sign meant. To which, he improvised and replied that he was a part of a movement that had been around for 50 years, and was originally started to save American birds, but had failed. He shared to The Guardian, “The “deep state” had destroyed them all, and replaced them with surveillance drones. Every bird you see is actually a tiny feathered robot watching you”.
Someone was filming him and uploaded it on Facebook. It went viral, and Memphis is still the center of the Birds Aren’t Real movement. Facebook has played a huge role for it to catch up among teenagers. Peter revealed, “Teenagers understand it, they don’t need footnotes”.
