According to MSNBC, if you believe George Soros is funding the opposition to Donald Trump (to say nothing of his other disruptive projects), you might be an unhinged conspiracy theorist, the sort of person who would send pipe bombs to Soros, Obama, the Clintons, and the White House.
So unhinged are these deplorables and garbage people they’ll even target Trump with a bomb to make a point. The CNN report I just read didn’t mention the White House bomb, or would-be bomb. There is no way to sort out the truth with professional government script readers telling us what to believe.
One of these professional teleprompter readers, Hans Nichols, says it’s all the fault of Republicans.
“You have had conservative lawmakers push some conspiracy theories that say George Soros is funding that caravan. You have seen some things that have been clearly debunked, issues that are not actually factual. Republican congresspeople, namely Matt Gaetz down there in Florida, talking about how George Soros is funding that caravan,” said Nichols.
Ah, yes, the election caravan, especially designed to distract you from seriously important issues, for instance a increasingly possible war between the US, China, or Russia, a war that has the potential to end life on planet Earth.
Few Americans want to think about the national debt and the unraveling dollar, which may soon no longer be the world’s reserve currency. They certainly don’t want to think too hard (or at all) about the forever wars launched by a criminal syndicate, politely called neoconservative in some quarters.
The latest stunt to rile up the deranged masses—we’re told large numbers (especially millennials) are psychologically affected by Trump—has produced wholly predictable results in the social media mosh pit, a medium where logic has long since departed.
That’s right. A guy who writes for the New York Times believes news stories have a magical affect, able to convert the meek and mild into raving bomb-throwing conspiracy theory terrorists.
I suppose we might consider this as a conspiracy theory folded into a conspiracy theory, sort of like Winston Churchill’s quip about a riddle wrapped inside an enigma.
Eichenwald has a few nutty conspiracy theories of his own. For instance, Trump and Putin are colluding to take down the American version of democracy. The folks who come up with such easily debunked nonsense are often nominated for Pulitzers.
Here’s my very own conspiracy theory—the unacceptable kind: the supposed bombs sent to Soros, the Clintons, Obama, and CNN are merely the latest bit of trickery used by the state to sow chaos, confusion, outrage, and foreboding as the election descends.
Is it possible the next act in this absurd political theater will be an actual murder of a Republican politician? Next time, one of these bombs may be the real McCoy instead of a dud.
It’s this kind of stuff martial law is made of.
