Sorry I’m day late but at least not a dollar short ~ Week two in the exploration and exposition of various conspiracy theories held dear by members of the Tea Party movement. This week there is a link you will have to copy and paste into your browser to read. I thought about cutting and pasting the entire article for you all but quite frankly it is long, but most definitely interesting and intriguing. Below is an excerpt to tantalize your interest.
“Why does the Cloward-Pevin conspiracy hold great appeal? And what, if anything, does it accomplish? On one level it’s entertainment. It allows believers to tease out the left’s secrets and sinister patterns. Since none of the evidence that supposedly confirms the existence of the Cloward-Piven strategy is, in fact, secret, this proves rather easy to do, and so the puzzle is both thrilling and gratifying.”
I also love a descriptive list of who makes up Tea Party membership: “… the tea party is an uneasy conclave of Ayn Rand secular libertarians and fundamentalist Christian evangelicals; it contains birthers, Birchers, racists, xenophobes, Ron Paulites, cold warriors, Zionists, constitutionalists, vanilla Republicans looking for a high and militia-style survivalists.”
Take a few minutes and explore the dark regions of a conspiracy at its best!
