This one goes out to all of you men who have spawned. Now stop. It’s getting crowded and people aren’t getting smarter.
Now, on with the conspiracy theories!
- What’s an Oath Keeper? Horrid, that’s what.
- The date for the US invasion of Libya has been set for October or November. But at least Alex Jones is defending Gadhaffi.
- Chemtrails cause bedwetting. Yeah. And I would be surprised if the belief in chemtrails were not associated with cloudy thinking.
- Global Research gives a conspiracist history of the Bilderbergs, who met last week.
- Is getting blown off by the FBI a victory for 9/11 Truth? Bob Tuskin reports. It seems to me like the letter the FBI sends (scroll down) is curt, vague and noncommittal.
- The BBC provides analysis of conspiratorial belief with the help of David Aaronovich.
- The Vigilant Citizen provides insight into what reading comprehension does not look like in his analysis of the BBC piece.
- This one was sort of cute, a throwback to an earlier, simpler time, when people used the word “commie.”
- I love the title of this one from UFO Digest: “Expert: Prince William is the Antichrist.” Expert at what, I wonder?
- I agree with Bug_Girl’s tweet: “Global warming denial+DDT booster+Black Death & Plague? WTF. SHAME on you @forbes”. By the way, I saw a bug this afternoon that was clearly wearing leg warmers. Anyone know that was?
- Bob Tuskin on the Vancouver riots: “We know that there was a full moon and that there was a lunar eclipse today, and also on top of that to complicate things more, they lost the game.” I think we have the order of importance backwards there. Lunar eclipses always coincide with full moons. Many studies have shown that the phase of the moon has no effect on human behavior. Except on werewolves.
- Bob’s chum Popeye gives us a lesson about the history of the Jooos. I’ve been finding a lot more antisemitic beliefs recently than I thought could remain in this country. Also, Federal Jack almost understands the political subtext of a Pixar movie. But not quite.
- Glenn Beck awaits silent Tristero’s empire: “Post Office might be used as a sort of secret police.” If you got that reference, you are awesome and may put it on your resume.
- Hey! Jack van Impe’s not dead! I don’t know how to feel about that!
- Heehee. There’s a New World Order Party in New Zealand. I don’t know, but “New World Order Party” sounds like a Prince tribute band or something to me.
- A Turkish conspiracy that Israelis are buying up Turkish land to expand their territory almost precisely the same as a new American conspiracy theory that China is buying land in Idaho to start a “soft invasion.”
- Ooh! A meta-conspiracy! Is there a conspiracy to “disappear” threads about certain conspiracies on a conspiracy theory board?
- Can we link Diana’s death to Iran-Contra? Sure? Why the hell not?
- The feigned moral superiority of so many Truthers is on display in the humble item: “9/11 Truth Movement is the World’s Conscience.” Self-congratulatory much?
- Oh, in case you missed it, World War III started.
Conspiracy Theory of the Week
This week’s Gilded Trouser Nugget goes to Mike “Health Danger” Adams’ report on how Fairbanks, Alaska voted to remove fluoride, frikin’ fluoride, from their water. Now men’s precious bodily fluids will be safe from Grizzly Moms. They are always trying to steal our essence.
