CONSPIRACY THEORY WEDNESDAY

Conspiracy theories have been around a long, long time.  Some resurrect themselves periodically and some die a natural death or are replaced by even better ones!

BIG BROTHER is watching you and me….When the government-forced transition to digital TV was made, many theorists believed that miniature cameras and microphones were built into the newer TV sets and in the set top boxes;  all the better to spy on  you my dear.  And then there was the mind control factor.  By using digital technology, subliminal messages and advertising could be directed at viewers.   Just think how easy it would be to subvert your mind and feelings?

Whoooooeeee this is a good one for the books!

Seal of New York.

Shame on Peter King!

This post was supposed to be yesterday’s Conspiracy Theory Wednesday and once again I find myself apologizing for being late.  Oh well….

It’s not that there’s any lack of crazy conspiracy theories out there;  I just have to search and read through to see if it this stuff is even readable.  But no problem this week, because of on New York‘s very own U.S. Representative Peter King has raised Islamphobia to a new level of histrionics.  And with that comes a whole slew of way out there conspiracy theories.

Have you heard of the Shari’ah Conspiracy Theory? No, well then you must read this.  If you regularly read this blog I know you’re probably wondering why does she want me to read about another fringe lunatic thought process?  Wellllll…..because every now and then I have to remind myself that these people actually vote and procreate and omg, you have got to know who is out there beyond your own comfort zone of intelligence.  Scary? Yes! But knowledge is power and in order to fight the craziness, you need to know from whence it came.

Welcome to the Shari’ah Conspiracy Theory Industry

I strongly suggest you copy and paste the link and have yourself an enlightening good time reading this.   Here’s a  passage and teaser for you;

“Anti-Muslim diatribe and activity have reached what Marshall Breger, a law professor at Catholic University, an Orthodox Jew and a Republican, has described as a “season of singular national distemper where, for reasons best understood by social psychiatrists, the American people have entered into what can only be described as ‘open season’ on Islam.”  …Alternet.org

There is a cottage industry of anti-Muslim fearmongers among us!

The "Second Revolution" flag, first ...

The Second Revolution Flag

I am continuing with the format of exposing and/or bringing to light some of the myriad conspiracy theories that abound – most especially within the Tea Party movement.   They (the Tea Party) make it so easy for me – there are lots of articles out there about their conspiracy theories and most recently about the distancing between that fringe group and the core membership of the Republican Party.

I’ve copied and pasted the first paragraph of the article written in The Atlantic Wire and below that is the link to the entire article.

“The Tea Party movement proudly boasts an anti-establishment, anti-incumbent, small-government worldview. But, as a movement, it continues to struggle with its conspiracy-minded roots. Andrew Breitbart and other conservatives recently rejected a high-profile birther speech at the first Tea Party convention in Nashville. There, the tension between the Tea Party’s mainstream political ambitions and its vocal, conspiracy-theorist fringe was on full display. Clearly, the conspiracy theorists do not make up the whole of the Tea Party, but they are just as clearly a force within the movement. Why is this strain so strong?”

The rest of the article is below:

Well after 35 weeks of exploring the conspiracy theory, COUP D’ETAT, I did wonder how I could keep Conspiracy Theory Wednesday an ongoing segment of my blog.  I never thought it would be easy UNTIL I thought about the Tea Party and some of the strange and wondrous ideas it embraces.  A quick Google search revealed a bunch of articles written on that very subject and written by people far more educated and knowledgeable than me and published in well-known and respected magazines and newspapers.

Let’s see how far I can go with this, maybe only a couple weeks… we’ll have to see how it plays out.  I don’t know if I have any readers who identify with the Tea Party and partially that’s because I, like everyone else I personally know, thinks they’re a fringe group of crazies, that the whole idea of the movement  is ludicrous and they can be laughed off. NOT-that’s a dangerous attitude on my part and others.  So maybe posting the articles will be helpful to everyone, believers and non-believers alike.  Because up to this point, the only tea parties I like to go to serve Black Oolong or Lemon Ginger AND scones with clotted cream.

Here’s one from Newsweek published in February ’10.  I won’t know what you think unless you comment or send me an email.
