Dave Collum @DavidBCollum l am a "conspiracy theorist". I believe men and women of wealth and power conspire. If you don't think so, then you are what is called "an idiot". If you believe stuff but fear the label, you are what is called "a coward".

The pejorative use of the term was created by people who didn't want to be noticed conspiring.. as a means of shaming people into ignoring their crimes.

In the groundswell of public skepticism toward the Warren Commission’s findings on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the CIA sent a detailed directive to all of its bureaus. Titled “Countering Criticism of the Warren Commission Report,” the dispatch played a definitive role in making the “conspiracy theory” term a weapon to be wielded against almost any individual or group calling the government’s increasingly clandestine programs and activities into question.

No, what she really means is that they are conspiracy analysts. They look into what some are labeling conspiracy theories and they dig and research and study to analyze the so-called conspiracy and determine if there is any truth there. You all aren't conspiracy theorists, you're conspiracy analysts.

It's not the same thing at all, because most people aren't coming up with these theories on their own, they are hearing about them and then looking into them and analyzing them. Being a conspiracy theorist implies you are the one coming up with and theorizing that the thing is true.

Yep you have to be the dumbest person ever to think that no one lies or conspires in politics. Just read about any historical event for 2 minutes to find some. People just want to be lazy with no responsibility, that's why they don't want to know anything about whats going on in the world. If they knew then they would feel guilty about not doing anything about it.
