The Worldnetdaily has finally found a ridiculous conspiracy theory that it can openly call ridiculous. No, of course it isn’t about Obama — they’ll believe and promote any claim that purports to make Obama look bad. It’s about Paul Walker and the fringe extremists who think he was killed by the Illuminati or some other dark, mystical force.
Prominent among the imaginative schemes is that Walker was killed as a blood sacrifice by the so-called Illuminati, an alleged shadowy group described as an elitist cabal that yields enormous global influence.
Another claim, based on a difficult-to-see video showing the moment of crash impact, is that Walker was killed by a drone strike. That unsupported theory is contested by a second video.
Another wild conspiracy circulating on forums is that Walker’s death was “predicted” by the “Family Guy” television show.Some theorists home in on aspects of Walker’s death that, they claim, have occult, ritualistic or symbolic significance.
So much irony in one place. Remember, this is the same “news” outlet that has published and promoted the most bizarre conspiracy theories imaginable, including Erik Rush’s astonishingly idiotic claim that Obama tried to nuke South Carolina. WND is practically ground zero for deranged conspiracy theories. But not this one, apparently.
