Who Are the Dangerous Conspiracy Theorists?


Who Are the Dangerous Conspiracy Theorists?
by Patrick Krey

The recent Medina debacle on Glenn Beck’s overrated show highlights the obvious hypocrisy of the Beltway Right-wing when it comes to conspiracy theories. Conspiracy theories that question government action are shunned while ones that endorse all-out war are to be embraced and repeated.

I have one simple question though for anyone free-thinking enough not to immediately follow whatever the voice on the radio tells them. What “conspiracy theorists” are more dangerous and deserve to be shunned by public opinion?

The ones trumpeted by people like Alex Jones whose goal is to have the 9/11 attack investigations to be reopened?

Or the ones feverishly hawked by the likes of Sarah Palin, Bill O’Reilly, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh that call for the American military to begin attacking Iran? The aforementioned talking heads of the mainstream conservative movement are the same voices who were mindless, unquestioning cheerleaders for Bush’s tragic, costly and unconstitutional war with Iraq (with the exception of Palin who was quiet on Iraq until shortly after McCain picked her for his running mate).

These people, who literally have blood on their hands, are now telling us that we should look with disgust on anyone who questions the official account of 9/11?

I don’t know about you but I strongly believe the guy wearing a baseball cap that says “inside job” isn’t a threat to anyone. On the other hand, the self-appointed leaders of the conservative movement, who have already gotten countless people killed and seriously maimed with their “conspiracy theories” while screeching for more war are the dangerous ones.

Good post



the Bible thumpers

Oh good grief

You are as bad as the neocons...blaming some group that you happen to personally dislike. One needs to be as concerned about the bible thumpers as the 911 truthers or the birthers. We've had bible thumpers in this country for 200 years...they are not the problem. Most of the people which concern me...bankers, government officials, CFR, Builderberg, ACLU, military complex, etc. etc. are certainly NOT bible thumpers. The elite would prefer to ban Bibles if they could. Wouldn't surprise me if the Bible doesn't get banned in the US (similiar to China) as a "hate book" before this mess is all...perhaps you will be happy then and find someone else to blame. Sheesh.

Dangerous conspiracy

Dangerous conspiracy theorists may also be identified as online scammers or online theft to be specific. Beware of it, 'coz they may rather scam you by tracking down some of your financial accounts. Unfortunately, how we live is far removed from how we ought – and since you can't count on people to be good, you have to take steps to guard against online identity theft. For one, do not store vital information on your computer – things like bank account numbers, your Social Security Number, and financial information such credit cards and other account information. Strictly limit online commerce, and check sites you do business with thoroughly. (Even eBay and Amazon aren't completely immune.) Good firewalls and anti-virus/spyware software is also a must. You don't want to need payday loans to pay for purchases you didn't make, or for lawyers to help get you out of fraudulent charges.
