The Inevitable Conspiracy Theory About OWS

The Inevitable Conspiracy Theory About OWS October 28, 2011

It’s been amusing watching the wingnut press try to discredit the Occupy Wall Street movement. They’ve thrown the kitchen sink at the protesters — “terrorists,” “Nazis,” “communists.” Soros is obviously behind the whole thing, right? And you knew it was just a matter of time before they figured out that it’s all just a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. And they would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky wingnuts.

  • I think some psychologists and/or psychiatrists (I keep forgetting the difference) should start the process it takes to add “paranoid postmodernist wingnut” to that authoritative big list of mental disorders.

    Not only do they make up elaborate paranoid fantasies, they can’t even keep their story straight on which shadowy group is allegedly behind it all. It doesn’t help that they’re applying double standards, since they typically revere the teabaggers who were much more public about their crazy.

    Psychiatrists, being MD’s, can prescribe drugs. You know, the same drugs they spray on Tea Party rallies from those “news” helicopters that keep “filming” them?

    Don’t blame us if the drugs have no effect on stupid.

    They’re like walking vomit bags of the fallacy of the excluded middle.

    Atheists aren’t Christians.

    Muslims aren’t Christians.

    Therefore atheists are Muslims and vice versa.

  • I’m not exactly an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood or anything, but from what I can tell, the MB is a primarily Egyptian, non-violent Islamist movement with a sporadic presence in other Muslim countries in the region. In some countries it has a lot of influence and in others practically none, but even in Egypt it’s a minority party.

    How they managed to so completely infiltrate the political system of country on the other side of the world where Muslims make up 0.6% of the population is truly a mystery.

    This is just sooo 2010.

    As Cindy Jacobs astutely pointed out, what is behind the OWS protests are Demons.

    These guys really need to update their mythology. You can’t miss too many fashion moves before you fall hopelessly behind.

    Guys, no, guys, seriously, check it out. Listen, no, really, guys, this is totally important.

    Maybe, like, the Muslim Brotherhood is a front for Occupy Wall Street.

    Duuuuuuuude. We are through the looking glass here people.

    Ed, you’re behind on your conspiracy theories. The new evil force behind #OWS is ACORN. You know, the group that ceased to exist 19 months ago.

    That OWS is non-violent peaceful protest is frustrating the right.

    The jingoistic aphorism; ‘American exceptionalism’, a concept sired by the trope; ‘Might makes right’, has made the idea of peaceful protest alien to the right.

    With that model of reality framing the thoughts of the right it is not a great leap, assisted by the fright bitches at Fox News, to assume that outsiders are responsible. After all what red blooded-true blue ‘Mercan would question industry’s right to callously suck citizens dry of their financial lifeblood while destroying the counties resources?

    Perhaps the constant dhimmitude citizens pay to industry is why so many on the right think Sharia law is upon us.

    I misread the post title as “OWLS” at first.

    You know, it doesn’t really change the internal “logic,” does it? But I like it better my way. 🙂

    That made me laugh and I couldn’t even read the whole thing.

    I’m not quite sure how one pulls off sticking their head up their arse and their foot in their mouth at the same time. Tinfoil hats must make you flexible.
