Even though the Malaysian government has come out and said that Flight 370 crashed into the Indian Ocean killing everyone on board, don’t expect that news to quiet the conspiracy nuts looking to blame it on President Obama. They’ve done everything possible to make their brainwashed followers believe this was some giant government conspiracy where Obama either ordered the hijacking of the plane or was behind its crashing to accomplish – well, any number of asinine accusations.
Perhaps the most ridiculous came from frequent Fox News guest Erik Rush who’s claiming that President Obama hijacked the plane, murdering all the passengers, all in some elaborate collaboration with the CIA to seize some Chinese technology experts who were working “for China designing ‘classified’ leading edge computer/internet control software and are carrying the matching hardware with them on the plane.”
According to Rush and “his sources,” 239 people were murdered (at the order of President Obama) so that our intelligence operatives could take possession of this technology.
I would list everything he said, but it’s just too insane. You can check it out here though if you’d like.
To me, conspiracy theorists represent some of the lowest bottom-feeders of humanity. These people spout off one ridiculous conspiracy after another, with no “proof” of any of it besides “sources” that aren’t credible at all, because there are millions of people out there who are paranoid and delusional enough to believe whatever drivel they feel like providing for them.
They’re essentially conmen.
Take Alex Jones for instance. He’s become a millionaire preying on the fear and paranoia of millions, always glossing over the fact that almost everything he says is proven to be false. While he attacks the government and just about everybody else he doesn’t like with an endless stream of ludicrous conspiracies – the real story should be how after all these years, almost nothing he’s said has been factually accurate and proven by evidence.
The truth is, anyone can be an influential conspiracy theorist. All you need to do is possess the ability to be a scam artist, and be creative enough to frequently concoct stories that are completely absurd. That’s one of the downsides of modern technology. Where years ago these people were rarely heard from, now all they really need is a computer and they can broadcast their asinine “theories” to millions.
And while I’ll admit that I don’t fully trust the Malaysian government to tell us the truth and further investigations will have to be carried out regarding Flight 370’s fate, to sit there and say President Obama “murdered” everybody on board is not only disgusting – it’s certifiably insane.
