Did you know ISIS is stationed inside of Mexico and getting ready to sneak into our country through the Texas border and attack us because a Quran has been found? Fox News helped promote more fear in America by giving a platform for a Texas Sheriff spewing "ISIS American invasion" conspiracy theories and then asked for advice on how we protect ourselves form the Quran carrying marauders as well as how Obama should handle them in iraq. As usual Elisabeth Hasselbeck did her hyperbolic best for Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter to promote his theories.

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?"

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.

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".
