Tin Foil Turbans: The 6 Stupidest Conspiracy Theories that Millions of Muslims Believe
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | Kathy Shaidle

Posted on 11/08/2010 9:13:49 AM PST by Michael van der Galien

“But the biggest problem with conspiracy theories is that they keep us not only from the truth but also from confronting our faults and problems. …This way of thinking relates any given problem to external elements, and thus does not [lead] to a rational policy to confront the problem. He who speaks of ghosts [as the reason behind any given problem] can do nothing to solve it.”

“Anyone, who adopts the conspiracy theory becomes so helpless that he ends up surrendering or committing suicide. The thinking of conspiracy theorists shifts between surrender and suicide, between helplessness and passivity, between negligence and failure.”

– Dr. Abd Al-Mun’im Sa’id, 1999

During the Q&A at Mark Steyn’s recent “controversial” speech burlesque song-and-dance routine (no, really…) in London, Ontario, a young man rose to ask Steyn a question.

“I am Iranian,” he began — leading our gang ensconced in “bloggers row” to turn in unison to the Iranian ex-pat in our group for his verdict. After the questioner got out another sentence, our friend rolled his eyes and muttered, “Idiot…”

The Iranian up at the mic had asked a reasonable question about how much the U.S. had armed Iraq before they decided Iraq was their enemy and invaded them. (Steyn’s answer: according to a Stockholm “peace research institute”, only 1% of arms sales to Iraq since the 1970s had come from America. Most came from France and Germany. Ooops.)

What came next led everyone else in the hall to roll their eyes.

“#5 The Incredible Shrinking Penis (shaking hands with non-muzzies shrinks your penis)”

It’s true. Jews invented a penis stealing device that allows us to steal the male essence and incorporate it into ourselves.

Our leader, The Parasite, did this to Superman, leaving Metropolis unprotected.

How many saw it "posted yesterday"?

I didn't and probably not many others.

Other people have a life other than posting police.

He’s a regular as a Posting Police Officer and his number one motivation is to get into arguments with people so they will eventually click on his name and see his fake “this user has been suspended” graphic that he’s loaded on his profile.

It’s a never-ending source of amusement for him.

This is what he lives for, poor guy.

Yes, posting the same blog article every day is awesome.
We should all vote on a dozen or so and just re-run them from here on out.

"It’s true. Jews invented a penis stealing device that allows us to steal the male essence and incorporate it into ourselves."

Yes, but there are those of us who have discovered the reverse secret - that having sex with Jewesses reincorporates the essence and renders us sexual UberMannern.

I vote for video blogs featuring Keith Olberman’s greatest moments.

Or Michael Moore eating.

Hit the abuse button. That’s what it’s there for.

I see threads occasionally pulled or blocked because of duplication, and the message directs us to the duplicate.

If you want to be helpful, post a link to the previous posting.

It’s easy enough to do, you don’t have to format html or anything, just go to the original posting, copy the url, paste it into a reply to the duplicate.

Then everyone will have it.

But you never do that. You just complain.

Why?

No doubt those will become classics, since we won't be seeing much of him any more I reckon.

I read these and cannot believe how unimaginative they are. If they are going to believe in a conspiracy, the least they could do is make it interesting.

I stand corrected. You did post the link.

Sorry, my mistake... it’s just that this seems to be your #1 issue, policing posts, and I was reacting to that.

But I guess that’s what you do around here so... good show... carry on, soldier!
