I remember the 9-11 truthers spam wars on both the Hufffington post and Kos, I always associated this type of extreme conspiracy stuff with the far right, and plain kooks.
The real conspiracies are up front and in your face, such as corporate domination of what we see, read and watch, and the steady diet of drivel that we are force fed through the mass media.
However to find loonsville we have to journey over to the libertarian right for the mass of crazy conspiracies.
I quite enjoy a good conspiracy every now and then with my croissant and coffee in the morning, and there are a few classics out there.
My favorite is 'teh gay agenda' for obvious reasons. I didn't know I was that devious and evil. It makes my day, and I can practice my evil laugh, although the fur-balls just take this as a sign that food is on the way. Scary not so much then.
The major networks seem too be giving way too much airtime to these loons and now Buchanan has joined the ranks of the stark staring bonkers.
Since Pat has written a bouk sic on why Britain and the US made a mistake in not allowing Hitler to conquer Europe, and its essential premise is:
But, but.... Hitler was an honorable man.
It should come as no surprise based on his antisemitic past that his website now hosts:
From Buchanan's own website: The joos did it
I wouldn't bother to read the screed, and I was in two minds about linking such tripe.
What bugs me is that this obvious idiot is regarded as a political pundit of some weight, a conservative one at that. Can you imagine how long a liberal would last if they started spouting such nonsense? MSNBC should drop this moron, like yesterday.
We have a daily dose of conspiracy wackiness from the likes off
The LaRouche clan
The John Birch Society
The Tea Party
And the ultimate crazies Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones.
The weirdest thing of all is that the GOP has taken many of these kooks to its rotting conservative breast.
So we have one party that is associated with crazy, and on the other side more often running scarred from actually pointing this out on a daily basis.
We are in danger of being run by people so sociopathic that the reasons why Reagan closed the asylums appear to be logical, his base needed liberating.
Please call me a socialist, as that appears to be their urban slang for sane.
