Conspiracy Theories Running Wild in Red America

they can't wrap their tiny little brains around the fact that this the most negligent governmental response to a national emergency EVER-they got guys filming the ICU/Emergency Room Parking Lots in huge Hospital complexes (like they know what the fuck they are Looking for). Then we got the data-processors convinced that state governments led by sycophant Republican Governors are lying to them. Local governments being attacked by the lunatic fringe about their FREE-dumb

Based upon current polls it appears the bubble they've built for themselves has finally been pricked by reality

3. So true.

I live in conservative eastern Washington state. Big fight over masking here. Lawsuits against governor.

Idiots!

Do I love wearing my mask? NO! I hate it. But I wear it in case it keeps the numbers down. In case one nurse, one doctor, one agricultural worker has an even infestisimal less risk of contracting it.

Not to mention - myself!

15. A small sampling of some of the RW comments in my small town

After the mayor ordered masks to be worn in public buildings where social distancing can't be practiced. Oh - and no penalties at all for individuals or businesses that do no comply. They. Went. Nuts.

- They will shoot anybody who tries to force them
- The order is unconstitutional communism.
- Every death that happens is being counted as a COVID-19 death
- Masks make it more likely that you will get sick
- Masks don't work
- Masks cause CO2 poisoning
- It's a Deep State conspiracy along with the Chinese, W.H.O, C.D.C, ANTIFA, Big Pharma and Democrats
- If you don't have symptoms, you aren't contagious
- Only people that are about to die from something else are at risk

And trust me, it does not matter how much contrary evidence is presented, they are ideologically attached to every and any Facebook post, nutty forum, conspiracy website or Trump Tweet that allows them to continue their delusions.

2. Trumpanzees are going red alert on rat fucking for tRump.

Their fringe websites are on full overload with all the conspiracy theories they've peddled the last decade all morphed together now to explain how their BS all ties together... So they are in an all out war to save the fake reality that gave them so much power in the government as tRump's poll numbers collapse.

They are even saying COVID-19 is a false flag hoax to control people and claim the media has faked all the deaths and hospitalizations.

4. Saw this AM that JFK Junior was still alive and would replace

Pence as Trump's VP candidate.

Princess Di is alive as well and a Trump supporter.

There was a picture of Trump with Princess Di in an American military uniform, highly decorated, and behind them was JFK Junior going down the steps of Air Force One.

This came up on FB.

25. Last sighting I heard of

he was working in a gas station in Arizona. But that was a decade or so ago. I imagine that, by now, The King has retired to a farm somewhere in upstate New York, singing and hip-wiggling with all the dogs and cats -- but mostly dogs -- sent there as a reward for their years of loyal friendship.

in the text that came to me. Princess Di was a USA military asset.

Did I say insane?

There is some very crazy stuff with high production value being passed around.

What his supporters keep saying vs what is being said by even small town officials is literally leaps and bounds apart. What they're pushing is truly cult level insanity and some are no longer buying it.

My son-in-law (Parents immigrants from Argentina), his sister and husband, living on Long Island, are convinced the entire Covid scenario is a hoax. But then again they believe, in birtherism, don't think Sandy Hook happened, blame everything on Obama and rant on Facebook.

Yes, Hillary is involved, pedophilia. trump is going to break up this worldwide ring. Arrests are "coming any day now" (been hearing that for 10+ months). The virus is part of the plot to distract us. Fauci, Gates etc are all part of it.

Desperate to get their nut case theory validated, so they can say 'Told you so! It was Soros/ Gates/ Hillary/ Aliens all along!'

BUT let's not air such theories here, shall we? DU is meant to be a nut case free zone, after all.

31. Well, the OP was about the conspiracy theories that are running around out there.

To me, this is the most ridiculous one. I dont see a problem discussing it. People SHOULD know whats out there so they can be prepared to counter the massive BS that comes with it. Its to the level of being dangerous. Simply saying "Biden just doesnt have it" isnt dangerous. And regarding THAT, if i'm up 14 points in the polls, why SHOULD I get out and campaign MORE?

29. Conspiracy theories are created by people

who are desperate to make sense of their world, desperate to find someone to blame, someone to hate.

And reality makes them desperate. And fearful. To cope, they upgrade their theories. (Just look at Trump for an example.)

If you come across someone throwing conspiracy theories in your face, just smile, and say 'You don't say! Fascinating!'
Then walk away. Logic and argument will just trigger the fear more.

36. Conspiracy theories are a coping mechanism...

...when reality doesn't meet expectations. For example;

When distressed, its not your fault....its the deep state.

When things are good, they could have been better if it were not for the deep state.


Reality, this is how countries fall from greatness...along with politicians who encourage this for their own benefit. For example, the Tsar entrusted a noble to inquire about the need for upgrading their forces. Only, that noble had a financial interest in keeping the status quo...so naturally, he said there was no need to modernize. Then WWI happened, a modernized Russian Army would have steam rolled right over the German Army, ended the war quickly and possibly prevented the Revolution.

And the GOP is encouraging the lunatics so long as they can get them re-elected, while, passing the buck to reform to successors...who may follow the same path. Eventually, something is going to break and it will be too late.

37. Just wait until their relatives start dropping like flies.

Then it will be an urban hoax to kill rural Trumplicans when there are no ICU beds for them.

The triaging is going to rather “interesting”, probably violent.

We here all know it’s coming.
