Alter.net has published its Top 10 Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories list, and the birthers didn’t make the cut. Is this part of the conspiracy, to keep Obama conspiracies down? Here I thought I was doing a heroic job battling one of the biggest lunacies of the age, only to find out that it’s not even on the list.
According to the article, the importance of Obama’s election was not in creating new conspiracy theories, but in increasing paranoia among those enmeshed in existing theories. For them, Obama is only the incarnation of the New World Order, not its essence.
Today, hundreds of Patriot groups around the country are actively preparing for the declaration of martial law, some of them by mapping wilderness areas, learning how to set booby traps, studying and practicing guerrilla warfare tactics, and setting up short-wave radio communications systems. The question is not if, but when, the New World Order will come crashing down.
I guess the story that a baby was born in Kenya pales in comparison to the military bio-weapons program attacking the US with the avian flu or a national declaration of martial law.
One obligatory note: some of the conspiracies listed are not exclusively those of right-wing conservatives.
