CONSPIRACY THEORY WEDNESDAY
It’s Wednesday and therefore time to explore another conspiracy theory! Since I finished posting COUP D’ETAT , an extensive theory as to WHO was involved in the assassination of President Kennedy, I wanted to continue with conspiracy theories. In about a New York minute, I knew where I could find a treasure trove of theories to explore – The Tea Party Movement.
This week I found an article in The Economist in which Bob Inglis, a Republican candidate who lost in the primary speaks about a meeting he had with Tea Party-activists just before the primary. I’m going to include the link to the full article, however I just can’t resist posting the part where Bob Inglis is quoted.
“…This week’s Mother Jones has an interview with Bob Inglis, the Republican congressman from South Carolina who just lost his primary to a tea-party-backed candidate despite having a 93% rating from the American Conservative Union. Mr Inglis, a former right-wing firebrand from the GOP‘s Class of 1994, says he lost his seat because he simply couldn’t go along with the kind of radical conspiratorial rhetoric required to remain viable in Republican politics today. He tells the story of a meeting with tea-party activists that took place shortly before the primary.
‘I sat down, and they said on the back of your Social Security card, there’s a number. That number indicates the bank that bought you when you were born based on a projection of your life’s earnings, and you are collateral. We are all collateral for the banks. I have this look like, “What the heck are you talking about?” I’m trying to hide that look and look clueless. I figured clueless was better than argumentative. So they said, “You don’t know this?! You are a member of Congress, and you don’t know this?!” And I said, “Please forgive me. I’m just ignorant of these things.” And then of course, it turned into something about the Federal Reserve and the Bilderbergers and all that stuff. And now you have the feeling of anti-Semitism here coming in, mixing in. Wow.’ ….”
