Dear Paul McCartney: Please call in to my show tonight and PROVE you aren’t dead!

If Paul doesn't call in, Jim Fetzer wins by default

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Tonight on Truth Jihad Radio (8-10 pm Eastern, FreedomSlips.com – click on Studio B) Jim Fetzer will argue that Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike. I will argue the contrary. We will be taking calls. But here’s the catch: If you want to call in, you have to do it through Skype. Just send a Skype contact request to DrKevinBarrett with a message saying you’d like to call in. I’ll take the calls pretty much in order they’re received…

…EXCEPT there is one call I will take immediately, no matter when it is received. That is the expected call from Sir Paul McCartney – the one man who really ought to know whether he actually exists, or whether he is merely a simulacrum.

Below is a letter I sent to Sir Paul by way of his company, MPL Communications, Inc. 41 West 54th Street New York, NY 10019 Phone: 212-246-5881, [email protected].

Dear Paul McCartney,

Or should I call you “Sir Paul”? That sounds pretty freaking weird, to me anyway, calling a pop star “sir.” Heck, I don’t even call former Marine Corps officers like Gordon Duff and Jim Fetzer “sir.” SIR NO SIR! And those guys, unlike you, have earned my respect. Though Jim does have a few goofy ideas. I’ll get to that shortly. 

Anyway, I guess “Sir Paul” sounds a little bit better than  “Sir Johnny Rotten.” God save the queen, mate!

By now you’re probably wondering who I am and why I’m bothering to write you. Short version: I’m a former “famous conspiracy theorist” who got suddenly deleted from Wikipedia after publishing a book on the Charlie Hebdo false flag and getting personally attacked by the President of France. I’ll spare you the details.

As a professional “conspiracy theorist*,” I make it my business to try to figure out which of the many alleged conspiracies out there are actually true. Most of the big ones are. But not necessarily all.

You are probably aware that many people believe that you do not exist. Or, rather, that Paul McCartney no longer exists. Do you (assuming you are Paul McCartney) exist? If so, perhaps you could call in to my radio show tonight and prove it.

Frankly, I do not envy you the task of trying to convince Jim Fetzer that you exist. Jim is a very stubborn guy. Once he gets an idea in his head, he’s reluctant to let go. The more you explain to him why you took a break from touring during the summer of 1966 because you were exhausted from the grind, and how John spread the “Paul is dead” rumors as an inside joke based on the ego death you both experienced after taking LSD, the more Jim will insist that the shape of your left earlobe proves that you are not actually there.

I’m sure you’re thinking, “I don’t care how stubborn this Fetzer guy is, I can easily prove I exist.” Not so fast! I once saw Jim win this exact same type of argument. He was standing in the hallway outside a philosophy conference trying to convince his interlocutor that said interlocutor did not, in fact, exist. And you know what? He didn’t! There was nobody there but Jim, waving and gesticulating and barking out arguments in his big, booming voice. The guy he was talking to…wasn’t there. Jim had apparently argued him right out of existence!

So you, Sir Paul, are in a tough situation. If you call in to my show, you’ll have an uphill battle convincing Jim that you really do exist. But if you DON’T call in, Jim will win by default. If I don’t get a call from you tonight during the show, millions of people all over the world will say to themselves, “By golly, Jim Fetzer is right! Paul McCartney obviously does NOT exist! He didn’t even bother to call in to Kevin Barrett’s radio show and present cogent and convincing evidence of his existence!”

As you can see, the stakes couldn’t possibly be higher. The whole world awaits with bated breath the outcome of tonight’s debate. A simple call-in from you, Sir Paul, could mean  the difference between a world in which “Paul is dead” and one in which “Paul, like our hopes and dreams, is still very much alive…or at least calling in to a radio show to make an audacious and energetic argument on behalf of his own existence.”

So please send “DrKevinBarrett” a Skype contact request stating you’d like to call in to tonight’s show. The existence you save could be your own.

Sincerely

Dr. Kevin Barrett (the original, not a replacement…at least the last I checked)

 

*The derogatory term “conspiracy theorist” was invented by the CIA to smear JFK assassination skeptics. Since it’s a CIA-trademarked term, everybody should pay the Agency a nickel every time they use it. I am currently collecting nickels and will turn them over to the Agency when the pile gets as big as Leo Wanta’s slush fund. So from now on, everyone who uses the term “conspiracy theorist” must send a nickel for each use to:  CIA Nickels, POB 221, Lone Rock, WI 53556.

    Don’t assume Jim is right about Paul McCartney. Better to hold a popularity contest in Kevin Barret’s attic home to determine who the real Paul McCarney is.

    Kevin can raise the money for it by collecting aluminum beer cans along the highway to supplement his income. Kevin gets the first 10% to have a cleaning lady do something about his attic home. The contest winner takes the rest of the loot.

    First prize could be a set of Johnny Punish sun glasses, second prize a one hour fireside chat with Gordon Duff, third prize a two hour fireside chat with Gordon Duff and so on.

    Thanks for the lighthearted letter to “Paul” or whoever it is that has assumed his persona. I needed the smile this morning. Very well written.

    If I were “Paul” and had actually read your amusing letter then I’d have been tempted to call in to the show – just for the fun of it. That show would have gone viral and would have been a hoot to listen to.

    Thanks again.

    The battle is not to prove the case either way if its Paul or Faul.

    Kevin: the facial measurements/ratios of the two (or more…) McCartneys ARE strikingly different! To dismiss this uber-hard fact is to be just as obtuse as it is to defend the authenticity of Ozzie’s (obviously bogus) backyard photos or Babs Olson’s (impossibly) phoned-in, bloody-boxcutters fantasy.

    Perhaps the “legend” of the fatal auto smash IS bollocks. Perhaps it was originally circulated either as a marketing tool, disinfo cover story, occult ritual component or experimental psyop. But today’s Paul AIN’T THE SAME DUDE WHO APPEARS IN THE EARLY PHOTOS. Period.

    So go figure. Use your prodigious powers of analysis and deduction.

    Don’t just give us some lame, Chip Berlet imitation.

      When I was a naive teenager I took pop culture seriously – read Rolling Stone and thought rock n’ roll could save the world. Today I devote very little time to pop culture and view it as a source of amusement at best.The only serious and interesting thing about the Beatles was John’s activism and flashes of lyrical genius. So I come at this topic not caring that much about the Beatles or even whether Paul was replaced – an idea that still strikes me as dubious. Sure, as Jim says, “Paul is dead” is INTELLECTUALLY interesting, but it’s not that important. So let’s have some fun with it. I’m just trying to make it entertaining for my readers and listeners. And if I’m succeeding, the correct comparison is not Chip Berlet but Jon Ronson, a writer I very much admire, despite our different viewpoints.

  5. andytyme  April 10, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    The “legend” of the real Paul’s death and replacement has been circulated, denied, debunked and revivied countless times for more than 45 years. The endless arguments certainly will not cease via some vocally skilled poseur’s Skype call to Dr. Barrett, nor will Dr. Fetzer willingly relinquish his idee fixe on the matter. So I suppose this particular “debate” is little more than a trifling time-waster with barely mediocre entertainment or educational value.

    But the silly-cum-snide tone of Dr. Barrett’s above essay does remind me all too well of the very similar-sounding cant of those reptoids at the Southern Poverty Law Center who are, like clockwork, called on (by the sleazy corporate news media) for sarcastic soundbites and pontifical quotes whenever the topic of politial conspiracies comes up in a major news story.

    And the winner is………..Willie Shears Campbell who has bedded a bevy of jewish schicksa’s for 50 years. The Silver Beatles were an average Liverpool, teddy garage band until Brian Epstein, George Martin, and EMI Tavistock technicians transformed them into THE BEATLES BRITISH INVASION into the States.

  7. Klaatu Aquinus  April 10, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    I think the bigger story, is that The Beatles were a corporate PSYOP. Unfortunately as most modern music is. I’m a musician, so please here me out. We can take J.S. Bach, who truly took back that which Lucifer stole for himself and his minions. Remember what Lucifer’s chief talent was before his fall ..

  8. Alananda  April 10, 2015 at 9:43 am

    Dear Kevin, should Sir Paul (or someone still serving in his stead) “call in” — perhaps from the dead?? — would you please capture his voice with enough fidelity to compare “voice prints” with other extant utterances by Mr. McCartney? Surely you have the wherewithal! No one wins by default, in my opinion, should no one admitting playing the continued role of PMcC call into your show.

    You are hilarious, Kevin!!
