Friedrich Nietzsche, a German Philosopher said, “He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
Among the Obotski, there is no doubt that Birthers are Capital “C” Conspiracy Theorists, much like Moon Landing Deniers and 9/11 Truthers. This is not really a nice thing to call someone, because it has the connotation of being somewhat crazy, paranoid, and OBSESSED. Most dictionaries define Conspiracy Theory as “a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators.”Under this definition, I do not think Birthers were ever Conspiracy Theorists, as explained in another Internet Article here.
But maybe another way, a less derogatory way, to define a conspiracy theory, a Little “c” version, is just “when a group of people do not believe some other group’s official version of something and think that some people are actively covering up the truth.” Under that looser definition, Birthers, and a lot of other groups qualify. Perhaps even the Obotski, who are completely obsessed with Birthers.
There are two main Obotski Websites, Obama Conspiracy Theories run by Dr. Conspiracy, and Fogbow run by PJFoggy. Lots of the Obotski at these two websites even have their own individual blogs. Some go to all the court cases, take notes, infiltrate Birther websites, and pretty much just spend all their time obsessing about Birthers. They even have their own radio station where they gather and plan stuff and carry on. They are “Birther Junkies” or maybe “Birther Groupies” who just can’t get enough of us. They even have their own word for it, “Birfessed.”
Sooo, I wonder. Have the Obotski looked into the Abyss too long and become just like what they think Birthers are??? And maybe even worse, going all the way to being full fledged Capital “C” Conspiracy Theorists??? Inventing all kinds of excuses to disbelieve The Official Birther Versions, such as the most prevalent at the time, “Why doesn’t he just cough up the long form if he has nothing to hide??? and imputing all sorts of evil motives to a perfectly innocent question.
Wired.com put out a Conspiracy Generator based on 6 elements:
First, choose an Event
1. Appeal to precedent
2. Ruling elite
3. Disturbing question
4. Dedicated group of truth-seekers
5. Expert endorsement
6. Suggestion of imminent threat
Here is what their program generated for Moon Landing Deniers
Are you kidding me? The moon landing was a total sham! Think about it! Everyone knows that governments always try to divert attention from unpopular wars. And have you noticed that the CIA has started to act very strangely? They obviously don’t want this story getting out. I mean, what would happen if people began asking to see the high-quality video of the first moonwalk? Well, they may be able to fool the sheeple, but the members of The Flat Earth Society aren’t swallowing their story. Look, don’t take it from me; self-published author and former Rocketdyne librarian Bill Kaysing is convinced as well. But we have to act fast, because just look at what happened to Kennedy. I just wanted you to be aware of this, in case I disappear.
Hmmm, here is what I get when I plug in the Obotski:
Are you kidding me? [Questioning why Obama didn’t cough up his long form for three years ] was a total sham! Think about it! Everyone knows that [ The Birthers just can’t stand a scary black man in the White House]. And have you noticed that [Orly Taitz] has started to act very strangely? They obviously don’t want this story getting out. I mean, what would happen if people began asking [ why hasn’t this ever happened to a WHITE president]? Well, they may be able to fool the sheeple, but the members of [ Obama Conspiracy Theories and Fogbow ] aren’t swallowing their story. Look, don’t take it from me; [Glen Beck and FOX News ] is convinced as well. But we have to act fast, because [ I think these people are going beserk and are going to hurt somebody]. I just wanted you to be aware of this, in case I disappear.”
Well, I guess if the Tin Foil Hat fits. . .
