Believing that President Obama was somehow negligent or indifferent to the attack on the embassy in Benghazi is old and busted. The new hotness is believing President Obama orchestrated the entire thing!
But there’s much, much more going on there.
In his WorldNetDaily column today, Erik Rush claims that President Obama likely “orchestrated the attack” on the compound in Benghazi “given his connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and legendary understanding of all things Islamic.” [...]
Rush cites the “Trinity United murders,” which according to far-right lore was Obama’s move to murder his former gay lovers he attended church with, as proof of Obama’s record of “grave criminal action.”
Wait. The president murdering his gay lovers was just a trial run for Benghazi?
“Depending on the outcome, measures might be as severe as charges filed against Cabinet officials or the impeachment of Obama himself,” Rush writes. “While this president reasonably deserves to be occupying a cell in some federal penitentiary anyway, impeachment presents many troublesome aspects.”
But he warns that impeachment proceedings against Obama will “ignite civil unrest,” which Rush claims is actually Obama’s plan all along!
To recap — the president supposedly murdered his former gay lovers and this gave him the experience he needed to mastermind Benghazi. Then, using his connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, he launched an attack on his own embassy so that his impeachment would “ignite civil unrest,” which was his end-game all along.
I know the president is famous for playing 11 dimensional chess, but I think you lost me at “orchestrated.”
This is nothing out of the ordinary at World Net Daily, where this isn’t even the nuttiest thing that’s been published. But I’m pointing this out for several reasons:
1. It’s amusing in a lets-go-to-the-zoo kind of way
2. World Net Daily currently employs Rick Santorum who came within an arm’s length of receiving the Republican presidential nomination in 2012
3. Erik Rush is a Fox News contributor who recently called for the death of all Muslims
And as others have pointed out, conspiracy is going mainstream thanks to congressional Republicans and the conservative entertainment complex.
