Frequent Fox News Guest Erik Rush Disgustingly Claims President Obama ‘Murdered’ Malaysia Airlines Passengers

erik-rushEven 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.

    The only thing I have to say is this. Conspiracy theorists that take the time to research and be informed are the most dangerous people in the world. Because they are often really close to the truth. I wish everyone could see that our government and our nation is no longer being led by the president. Kennedy said it best when he said For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. This is the reality of the situation. The only reason that people hate conspiracy theorists is that they make them face things that are uncomfortable and unbelievable. I have lost alot of respect for this page and the people who write for it.

      Your medication … for God’s sake, take it.

      No, people hate conspiracy theorists because they ignore any facts that might dissuade them from the lies they prefer to believe, or worse, claim that they’re “part of the conspiracy”. Skepticism is normal, paranoia is not.

        That street runs both directions Adam

        But the devil put that wreckage in the water to trick us!

    • Sunny Ray

      Ok, let’s say you are right, it doesn’t apply here because the “Conspiracy theorists that take the time to research and be informed” were not present. We just got a lamentable guy that knows how to make some money out of FAUXnews, and he is black, a plus for FAUX!

  • BLACKnotURBAN

    Could it not be an accident? I love to BLAME – Pres. Obama for everything. But planes crash and accidents happen. As a Conspiracy theorists myself, I accept SOME SHIT JUST HAPPENS!!! Anyway I will wait for Obama to leave office and BLAME HIM FOR MY KIDS MOTHER LEAVING ME!!!

  • Jerry Graybosch

    Well of course. If I want to learn what a company knows about semiconductors, I would steal a plane in mid air, fly it by remote control to Diego Garcia, take the corp techies prisoner and murder the rest of the passengers and crew. Makes perfect sense.

  • bamcintyre

    It’s becoming easier to determine what is a conspiracy and what is true. If they say it on Faux News, then it’s bullshit.

  • Nick Wride

    Another deranged lunatic on Fox “News”. I’m shocked, shocked, I tell you. 🙂

  • shutdafrtdoor

    The only plausible way this story could be remotely possible is if there were 239 Tea Party Pukes on board! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaa! =D

  • Eddie Krebbs

    Erik Rush seems to distinguish himself by putting so many details in his conspiracy theory. To get so many top secret details, I have to assume that he is a foreign intelligence operative (spy) and should be prosecuted as such ?

    Frankly, I can’t begin to imagine anything I’ve seen that would lead me to believe any of his claimed details.

  • LASunLover

    A fool! Some of these folks need to stop attending those store-front
    revolutionary meetings, and getting all riled up! This guy is a pure, stupid,
    fool!

  • Bonta-kun

    Certifiably insane? Maybe.
    How about criminally?

  • Kay Rowell

    Please tell me that there is nothing in our food and water that is systematically driving so many people here in the US crazy. If there is I think all of Fox News , the Tea Party, the NRA and many of my friends and relatives have been consuming it. God help us all!!!!!!

  • brian whittle

    Conspiracies happen but as people can’t keep quiet they get found out. If a so called conspiracy has no real evidence within a couple of years it’s just BS

    • Ron Quandt

      The problem is if you just keep throwing bull shit against the barn, some of it will stick; It has been going on for years.

  • Scuba Linneman

    it’s so ‘cool’ now a days to be black and not like Obama,….
    the white conservatives will suck your dick dry if you have an afro and dis on Obama,….

  • republic84

    Yep… Sounds about right. The only thing that would make this more entertaining is if they randomly flashed a penis during his interview, fox likes to do that you know.

  • Mecha343

    Did Erik Rush escape from a mental hospital?
