And Now, a Word From the Conspiracy Nuts

And Now, a Word From the Conspiracy Nuts July 25, 2012

We’ve heard all the idiotic responses from the wingnuts blaming the Aurora shootings on the usual suspects — taking God out of schools, putting evolution in, “shaking our fist at God” and similar such rot. Now let’s hear from the real loonies, the conspiracy nuts, who are convinced that Obama is behind the whole thing, all part of his master plan to let the UN steal our guns.

Let’s start with Vox Day at the Worldnutdaily.

Holmes is only the latest in a series of “lone gunmen” who are possessed of seemingly supernatural talents, such as the ability to defy the laws of physics or to be in two places at the same time. The magic bullet of Lee Harvey Oswald, the super-explosive power of Timothy McVeigh’s fertilizer bomb, the four living Saudis who are confirmed to have survived their reported participation in the 9/11 crashes and the remarkable incendiary talents of Martin van der Lubbe are all similar examples of the way in which the official story put forth by the government simply doesn’t withstand the test of science and reason.

There can be no doubt that in light of the complete political failure of the gun-control movement over the last 29 years, the Obama administration is desperate to find a way around the Second Amendment by signing the Arms Trade Treaty presently being aggressively pushed by the United Nations. With 58 senators already on the record as being opposed to any treaty that would infringe upon Second Amendment rights (thereby giving them cover to claim that the treaty does not affect such rights until after the treaty comes into effect and is clearly seen to do so), the administration was in dire need of a gun-related crisis to reduce the public opposition to the treaty.

And in the absence of any crisis it could utilize – for as Rahm Emanuel has said, “You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste” – it appears the administration may have found one.

Yes, of course. It was Saul Alinsky, on the grassy knoll, with a pipe bomb. And then there’s Alex Jones, who will no doubt find a way to link this all to chemtrails, the Illuminati and Area 51 soon.

    It was the Space Reptiles!!!

    It’s always the Space Reptiles.

  • Sastra

    I can’t quite bring myself to watch the video yet. What in the world is supposed to be Holmes’ particular “supernatural talent?”

    You can dye your hair red, if that’s what he’s on about.

  • Rando

    Let me put on my tin foil hat.

    It’s a secrt plot by the Space VAMPIRES!!!! The Space VAMPIRES are at war with the giant monster people of Omicron Persei 8!!!! So in orde rto combat the Omicron Persei 8iens they have cum up with a scheme to drive us out of the sun! YOU NOTICE THAT THESE ATTACKS OCUR IN THE DAY TIME!1!!1!

    Protect the CHEESE!!!!

    Okay, I’ll take off my tin foil hat now…

  • Vampires? Pfft. Clearly it’s Venusian Zombies, they keep the artificially thick cloud cover on their planet to cloak their nefarious activities to destabilize earthikan governments. Soon they will launch a full scale invasion to harvest our tasty tasty brains. Some brains will be tastier than others.

    the test of science and reason

    WTF does this moron know about science and reason?

    Does he think it’s really all that difficult to fire a weapon in a crowded space and hit some people? What did Holmes do that was “seemingly supernatural?” He had a theater packed full of people, a shotgun, an AR-15, and a .40 Glock, and he was still only able to kill 12 (thank goodness). That’s not “supernatural,” that’s damn near incompetent.

    But apparently there’s no conspiracy theory too stupid that it won’t ensnare the likes of the dipshits at World Nut Daily.

  • Guns don’t kill people. Supernatural powers that compel the bullet forward kill people.

  • Sounds plausible.

    But then, I am concussed from all the facepalming I’ve been doing recently, so I can’t really judge.

  • …where did an unemployed graduate school dropout find the money to obtain a rifle that costs around $1,250 and an estimated $1,500 in ammunition?

    Gosh, I don’t know, it could have possibly come from the $26,000 of stipend money he had received over the last year. Or maybe with a little thing called a credit card.

    No, that couldn’t be it. It must have been forwarded to him directly from Obama who then ordered to kill lots of people and take the rap without telling anyone.

  • Fifty years of “lone nut” shootings and the second amendment is still in place? No altering of strategy?

    I guess that rules out evil geniuses.

  • slc1

    Re NoVaRunner @ #5

    Apparently his AR15 jammed after firing a few rounds, fortunately for the other customers at the theater or the death toll might have been much higher.

  • Does he think it’s really all that difficult to fire a weapon in a crowded space and hit some people? What did Holmes do that was “seemingly supernatural?”

    According to science and reason expert Vox Day, an unnamed witness claims that he saw someone go toward the emergency exit to take a phone call and, maybe — the recollection is all very vague — propped open the door. Obviously, absolute proof that there was an Obama agent helping out the gunman.

    According to local police (who must be in league with Obama), that suspicious person was named James Holmes. He left through the emergency exit, left it propped open, and returned several minutes later armed to the teeth and started killing people.

    Using his powerful skills of reason, Vox Day determines that this person was not James Holmes, because his red hair would have clearly stood out in a dark theater filled with people wearing costumes, and it’s much too hot to wear a hat in July. Also, who would have been calling Holmes at that hour (Eric Holder, maybe)? It’s not as if Holmes could have faked receiving a phone call or anything.

  • Isn’t it strange, given the multitude of conspiracy theories concerning the federal government secretly conspiring to make us do this or think that, that they never seem to consider the possibility that they want ordinary Americans to arm themselves to teeth so that they can start taking each other out without the “global elite” having to lift a finger?

    After all, their representative, President Obama, a man who has been groomed by the Bilderbergers since birth to assume the presidency of the United States, hasn’t once called for any type of gun control measures since being elected. Don’t they find that suspicious?

  • DaveL

    To anyone who has ever asked themselves how a paranoid, delusional, gun obsessed man with heart full of hatred and violence on his mind could pass unnoticed in American society, I give you “Exhibit A”.

  • You know, I read elsewhere that Holmes set a timer to play loud music in his apartment right at the time was to start shooting in the hopes of drawing police to his place to set off the booby traps. Just guessing here: Couldn’t he have, for instance, set an alert on his cell phone to go off at the same time as the music? His phone goes off, tells him its go time, at which point he leave the theater, looking to a casual observer like he’s going to take a call?

  • jimmiraybob

    I watched just enough of the Jones video to realize that he’s a know-nothing wack job.

    Anybody who’s really in the know knows that the secret government operative, Holmes, isn’t being drugged and suppressed. Why do you think that Obama and his CIA team flew immediately to the scene? It was to bring Agent X, Holmes, back to the White House to award him a Medal of Obama Freedom and to start prepping him for his next mission.

    Jones, what a piker.

  • I think Big Sports Equipment is trying to take our guns so we’ll buy bats for home protection.

  • Gvlgeologist, FCD

    We had a letter to the editor of the Gainesville Sun today that blamed the shooting on separation of church and state. That’s just as nuts, as far as I’m concerned. Just more garden-variety.

  • Randomfactor

    There can be no doubt

    There’s his problem right there.

  • dean

    Actually NBC news interviewed a person (who was in the theater during the attack) who claimed he saw a person from the front row get up “to answer a phone call” and leave through one of the front emergency doors. He said he didn’t see him come back in because due to leaving to find a friend in the lobby. The killer entered and began the attack just after he had reseated himself (so the story went). The interview was, I believe, Monday night (possibly Sunday).

    Since nothing official has been said about anyone else being involved I’ve shelved this story and don’t buy it, but the idea for it came from someone who was willing to be interviewed on national news.

  • dean

    A friend just emailed me a link to some web site called ‘the daily paul’, on which the “ben swann reality check” is hosted. The site seems to be infested with worshipers of ron paul and the low level of thought shows. They are all over this “conspiracy” as well. A hot one stems from the fact that Holmes’ father has (they assert) a Ph.D. in statistics and was involved in DARPA many years ago.

    So as a child James father was linked to DARPA, and so was James linked to possible MK Control; his Dilated pupils suggest MK ULTRA. Children abused sexually in these programs. Video below Cathy O’Brien, MK victim/survivor.

    @14: That’s just ridiculous, it couldn’t possibly be true. I mean, it doesn’t even try to explain how Obama is at fault!

    “There can be no doubt”

    Then what is this sinking feeling I’m having?

  • John Hinkle

    Let’s start with Vox Day at the Worldnutdaily….

    Ow. Do we have to?

    Big smarts, little brain – wait, big brain, little mouth, – oh I give up. Has Vox so-n-so ever changed the world for the better?

  • Ichthyic

    It’s good to see Vox is continuing the predicted course towards ever more deranged rants.

    I’d be worried if he ever started saying things that had any rational logic to them.

  • Ichthyic

    Since nothing official has been said about anyone else being involved I’ve shelved this story and don’t buy it, but the idea for it came from someone who was willing to be interviewed on national news.

    of course, it has NEVER happened in teh history of theaters that someone walks out of a theater when they get a phone call.

    NEVER.

    *headdesk*

  • ArtK

    Another “brilliant” demonstration from Vox Day. He starts with an unshakable premise and then reason backward, interpreting every event in that light. He then presents it as “forward” reasoning, arriving inevitably at the premise, thus proving it.

    Science and reason: Doing it wrong again.

  • imthegenieicandoanything

    I hope never to meet VD in person. For his sake.

    When he dies – may it be soon – I will nod solemnly and then take solace in the knowledge that the universe is a better place, having lost one of the ugliest human beings ever born or conceived.

    What a shitty nation America is, to have such a person so prominent!

    Vox Day is prominent? I think you overestimate his impact greatly.

  • dan4

    Has there ever been a conspiracy theory that Alex Jones has NOT given a “thumbs up” to?

  • raven

    To anyone who has ever asked themselves how a paranoid, delusional, gun obsessed man with heart full of hatred and violence on his mind could pass unnoticed in American society, I give you “Exhibit A”.

    Not quite.

    Lots of people have noticed Vox Day and long ago. There is something seriously wrong with his mind.

  • Aliasalpha

    Vox Day is prominent? I think you overestimate his impact greatly.

    That’s more or less what Grand Moff Tarkin said a few minutes before the Death Star exploded (I heat that was obama’s fault [or perhaps Rebecca Watson’s])

  • sailor1031

    Wow – I learn new stuff every day! President Obama is responsible for the burning of the Reichstag in 1933!! I’m guessing that Martin van der Lubbe is the surviving brother of Marinus ven der Lubbe,who allegedly set that fire, and has finally revealed all to voxday….amazing.

  • “Since nothing official has been said about anyone else being involved I’ve shelved this story and don’t buy it, but the idea for it came from someone who was willing to be interviewed on national news.”

    And we all know that all of those interviewed by someone from the media are perfectly normal. The problem is actually not that whackjobs wind up in the vicinity of a microphone; it is that the “edit” function at most “news” organizations is set to “If it bleeds it leads”.

  • NoVaRunner

    @30 Aliasalpha

    That’s more or less what Grand Moff Tarkin said a few minutes before the Death Star exploded

    I actually had that in mind, believe it or not. But using Tarkin’s words would have given far too much credit to Day, whose mental powers are quite far from the devastating impact of a Death Star.

  • birgerjohansson

    It is all aconspiracy to cast blame on the aliens trapped inside volcanoes (by the interstellar warlord which Scientology worsips).

    PS Kang and Kodos are not involved.

    PPS …but possibly the jews.

  • shouldbeworking

    Well, he hasn’t blamed Canada yet.

  • dean

    If I was not clear, I was not trying to lend support to the second person theory, iI was pointing out the source was willing to go on national TV and talk about it.
