Vancouver, BC – An exclusive two-part video released June 18, 2018, on TrueTube by NewsInsideOut.com (Part I, Part II) captured UFO Classified’s Erica Lukes’ lucid insights surrounding a variety of incendiary UFOlogical questions and commentary from host Jon Kelly. In this episode TrueTube caught up with the former Mutual UFO Network state director for Utah following her emergence as a champion for women’s issues in contemporary UFOlogy. Newsweek reported earlier this year in an article titled “What if Aliens Met Racists?” how MeToo-era MUFON presents an unenticing brand comparable to a dumpster fire of racism and sexism.
During her exclusive interview the “UFOs: The Lost Evidence” cast member explained how researchers dedicated to science and truth have broken formal ties with the network in the wake of their latest scandal, emerging as independent voices pioneering new avenues for discovery and learning. In Part I the Newsweek newsmaker told in morbid uncensored detail of navigating entrenched gender and racial stereotyping said to be common in major UFO media workplaces and social networks. In Part II Erica Lukes explained how an ongoing science-backed research program at Hessdalen, Norway, would be impossible to replicate under the present political climate in Trump’s America.
The discussion ventures further into roles played by the film “Sirius” (2013) and the supposed “Roswell Slides” in for-profit desecration of indigenous native child remains, so-called “Wet Room UFOlogy” implications of promoting torture aficionados to executive roles at the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and NXIVM-like UFO cults (along with public vulnerability to cult appeals). Further citations include negligently uncritical mainstream UFO reporting omissions and the Bigelow Aerospace “files-for-cash” scandal that apparently placed one MUFON director of abduction research’s social worker’s license under a state-imposed five-year probation.
Having viewed Parts I and II viewers may agree with the yogic conception of how understanding life in the universe requires a universal outlook, not one constrained by classism, racism, sexism or nationalism. To critics the guest and host offer a collective argument seemingly stating, “Your racist sexist fascistic UFOlogy is defective and will not produce good results.”
According to an online bio Erica Lukes is a UFO researcher and podcaster. She is the former state director for the Utah chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and a MUFON field investigator. She is currently conducting private research on UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) and Parapsychology (the scientific study of paranormal and psychic phenomena).
