Enough is enough already. I was going to vent on The Book and/or even Twitter about this, but then I remembered that's the entire reason I have this blog.
Why is it that everytime we (as a country) experience a major tragedy there has to be some new conspiracy behind it? It's almost as if people have nothing better to do so they have to read into every little thing in order to provide an alternate explanation as to why the horrific event happened. Sometimes even inventing facts of their own to prove their point.
The latest example of this was the Sandy Hook murders. 20 innocent children killed. The bodies didn't even have a chance to get cold before the conspiracy theorists started chiming in about how it was all rigged. How it was all a set-up done so that our government would have an excuse to start enacting more gun control laws. How our government intentionally killed children just so they could get some legislation to go through.
It first started getting out of hand when 9/11 took place. People are still saying that our government not only allowed those planes to hit their targets, but then also helped some of the destruction by setting off explosives planted in the Twin Towers. The rationale that time was it was done so that the government could take away some of our rights with all that Homeland Security legislation. So basically, our government killed over 3,000 defenseless American citizens just to get a few laws passed. Yeah...that sounds about right.
Certain people are going to always find a conspiracy behind something no matter what happens. No matter how much evidence there is to the contrary. They just thrive on the feeling of being contrary. Quite honestly, I don't know about anyone else but it gets annoying. I know I really have no one to blame but myself for even entertaining it. All I have to do is not read the links. However, I always find myself being nosy and that's what I get.
Oh...and don't you DARE try to prove them wrong and/or call them crazy. That just means you're blind to what is going on in the world around you. That you believe everything you see in the media because you have no mind to think for yourself. That you were not smart enough to figure out the truth behind the whole cover-up while they were.
So, if I'm understanding all of the conspiracy theorists correctly, 9/11 was done so that the government could take away our rights. Sandy Hook was done so that they could take away our guns...well...everyone else's guns since I don't have any. I suppose our govement was also behind Hurricane Sandy and that was done to take away our insurance, huh? Sounds a little ridiculous? Exactly.
