I arrived at the 9/11 Cultural Festival last Thursday thanks to a confusing mixture of repulsion and attraction I felt upon viewing Below a grainy photo of the Twin Towers spewing black smoke, it touted the "honest dialogue" about 9/11 that intended to advertise-"honest dialogue" being a surprisingly effective dog-whistle for "conspiracy theory." It promoted plays with obviously tinhat-friendly names like Naked Uncle Sam was the first of Thursday's scheduled plays.
The Internet-Mana Party's bizarre allegations about the future of the MA ori Land Court and the Waitangi Tribunal are a conspiracy theory based on wilful misunderstanding of basic constitutional conventions, National Party MA ori Affairs spokesman Christopher Finlayson says. "Internet-Mana's Waiariki candidate has suggested that the routine re-appointment of sitting members of the Waitangi Tribunal in August and the appointment of two temporary MA ori Land Court Judges is a conspiracy of JFK-sized proportions to destroy both institutions," Mr Finlayson says.
The terms "conspiracy theorist" and "conspiracy nut" are used frequently to discredit a perceived adversary using emotional, rather than logical, appeals. It's important for the sake of true argument that we define the term "conspiracy" and use it appropriately, not as an ad hominem attack on someone whose point of view we don't share.
In my work as pastor and hospital chaplain I'm constantly asked, "How can God allow such suffering in the world?" Faithful Christians die of cancer and heart disease; the military-industrial complex stages war-for-profit escapades in places such as Vietnam and Iraq, and thousands of U.S. service people are maimed or killed as a result; ISIS Sunni Muslims murder members of other faiths, and even other Muslims; bankers and hedge fund managers crash the economy, and while millions of Americans lose their jobs and homes as a result, the people responsible for the disaster enjoy their golden parachutes and never go to jail.
Various people claim that a spacecraft with alien occupants crashed on a ranch near Roswell, N.M. in June or July 1947. Though it's now mainly fueled by local businesses wanting to cash in on tourist interest, the Roswell UFO incident of 1947 is the most popular UFO cover-up of all time.
Others' Proposed Articles and Amendments to the Constitution by Al Carroll, et al. There has been an interesting mix of reactions to my articles at Counterpunch, DailyKos, and Democratic Underground discussing constitutional reform. Some responses were kneejerk rejection, mostly incoherent or bluster.
In Roger , the titular bedraggled conspiracy theorist does things a little differently than your run-of-the-mill tinfoil hat. Most would use facts from government reports and scientific studies as proof of their seemingly outlandish conclusions; Roger begins with his suspicions about the way the world works and then, almost as an afterthought, looks for supporting evidence.

We all know how the presidential-hopeful, Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal has sued his own Department of Education and then after failing, sued the Obama administration over the implementation of Common Core. We recall when he was one of the most strident advocates of the program, before his "awakening" or perhaps, his drinking too much "made-for-the-presidential-campaign-tea".
Jerry Boykin gets paid a lot of money to push fear and hate, but that doesn't stop him from whining about persecution, too. There are two things Jerry Boykin loathes: Islam and our President.
Deputy Defence Minister Kebby Maphatsoe's limp apology shortly after a parliamentary session that saw ANC MPs accused of protecting him from answering for his spy claims against the public protector, may have closed this sorry chapter, but it has by no means closed the book on such narratives in South Africa's public discourse. When Maphatsoe resorted to describing Public Protector Thuli Madonsela as a CIA plant or spy, he followed a long-established path within the ANC, for such labels were applied to the "other" in political and organisational battles all the way back to exile days.
Much has changed in the thirteen years since America was attacked. At least one thing has remained constant: the stupidity and futility of 9/11 truthers.
