Conspiracy Theory


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?

Please proceed.

“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.

    I think Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, World Net Daily, Erik Rush and all the rest, know exactly that they are peddling lies. Obviously they also know that any one with any smidgen of intelligence will readily recognize their BS! Sadly, they also know that their followers are racists who are so poorly informed that they would latch on any BS they spew. In the meantime, Rush and the others are laughing their way to the bank after collecting millions of dollars by treating their followers as ignorant champs.

    So, Obama is a gay supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood who killed people at his Christian church and orchestrated the Benghazi attacks because Socialism! (I guess)?

    Wow. Congratulations, that is without a doubt the most bat sh!it crazy theory I’ve heard so far this year.

    “It’s amusing in a lets-go-to-the-zoo-and-watch-the-monkeys-fling-their-poo-around kind of way”.

    Fixed for accuracy.

  • Victor_the_Crab

    Oh Gaaaawd! There’s not enough drugs and/or alcohol to keep me numbed from this batshit insanity.

  • muselet

    Was Erik Rush very stoned when he wrote his column?


    • Victor_the_Crab

      If by very stoned you mean he has stones for brains, then the answer is yeah.

      • muselet

        Tell me his column doesn’t reek of stoner logic. “It’s all connected, man! Pass the Cheetos.”


    • nathkatun7

      I think he was very sober! He is just exploiting his ignorant followers.

    “impeachment proceedings…will ignite civil unrest”

    This racial dog whistle brought to you by a hate-filled white minority actively working to burn this country to the ground to get back into power.

      Hey if the GOP Neoconfederates want to start Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo by doing the equivalent of firing on Ft. Sumter, then fucking let them. Apparently they forgot how it worked out for them last time.

      • nicole


        I agree.

  • nicole

    dear universe, I freaking hate these people.

  • villemar

    Please Proceed with Impeachment Hearings, Congress. Seriously. Not because I subscribe to this psychotic nonsense, but I want the same backlash against the GOP House in 2014 that they got in 1998 after the Whitewater (?) Impeachment. Benghazi=Whitewater (minus the unrelated blowjob).

    If Obama is such a hardcore Muslim then he wouldn’t be gay. Just sayin’…
    Silly me…I’m applying logic. I should know better.

    • nathkatun7

      Exactly! You see, a low information person has absolutely no idea about Islam, except that they’ve been told, by their master manipulators, like Glenn Beck, that Muslims, socialists and gays are evil; which means that President Obama is the epitome of evil, because he is gay, socialist and Muslim. Oh, I forgot he is also Kenyan, Indonesian, and a son of a Black American militant socialist.
