Donald Phau is yet another minor wingnut fundie, whose level of crazy is sufficient to weigh up for his lack of influence (though there is a Donald Phau who was involved with the Lyndon LaRouche movement at some – don’t know if it is the same). Phau has also been awarded for his efforts to bring in the crazy by extensive whale.to coverage (here).
His main schtick is “the Satanic roots of rock”, and he has a warning to all those who think that music was more innocent in the sixties. You see, pop and rock “is, and always has been, a joint enterprise of British military intelligence and Satanic cults.” Indeed, “[b]oth sides are intimately entwined with the biggest business in the world, the international drug trade,” and rock stars often end up as drug addicts in virtue of the Satanic British military trying to keep them in line (though “[o]ff the stage, the Beatles werejust as evil,” partially due, it seems, to “their manager, a homosexual named Brian Epstein”). “These drugs were secretly placed in drinks such as Coca-Cola, turning thousands of unsuspecting victims into raving psychotics,” says Phau, though both the purpose of such measures and the evidence for the claims remain elusive.
Diagnosis: A shadowy figure (little information has been located apart from his anti-rock screed), but decidedly worthy of inclusion in our Encyclopedia.
