Many readers of this blog are proud conspiracy realists, having had their theories vindicated so many times. James Corbett has the details of what he considers to be the top five conspiracy theories that have been borne out to be conspiracy facts, getting into the gory details of each:
1 – The CIA Ships in the Drugs
2 – The government is spraying us from the skies
3 – Governments stage terror attacks
4 – The CIA ran mind control experiments on unwitting Americans
5 – Chemicals are turning the frogs gay
It’s important to recall that the term “conspiracy theory” was weaponized in the 1960s by a CIA that was anxious to maintain its reputation amid rampant skepticism over the spurious findings of the Warren Commission that Lee Harvey Oswald had assassinated John F Kennedy all by his lonesome.
It was found that the CIA had sent a detailed directive to all of its desks and bureaus titled, “Countering Criticism of the Warren Commission Report,” which advised officers on how to counter those who questioned the federal government by using the term “conspiracy theory” as a pejorative.
So, the next time they call you a tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorist, you’ll be armed with all you need to school the normies!
