conspiracy theories

Here’s another episode in the adventures of Infowars “reporter” Matt Bidondi, the Alex Jones functionary last seen on Yr Wonkette being told to “keep runnin’ your pissflaps” and to “drink a dick, dude,” by an Irate Boston Man after last year’s Boston Marathon bombing. This time around — just this last week, in fact — […]

Those of you with excitable friends who are prone to forwarding stuff from the interwebs may want to keep this handy for debunking purposes: No, actually, Pope Francis hasn’t been charged with child trafficking by an international court. (And neither was Queen Elizabeth.) This completely serious claim apparently was considered reliable enough by some of […]

Some very exciting news for the birther conspiracy community seemed to erupt Monday afternoon, only to be snatched away immediately. For a few short hours, it appeared that Birther Hero Sheriff Joe Arpaio had confirmed that he’d assigned two full-time detectives to some aspect of the investigation of Barry Hussein Soetoro Bopshabop Peggy Fleming’s birth […]

Lest you might worry that in today’s modern society of today, people are so jaded by technology and science that they have lost their sense of wonder and capacity to be amazed, watch this video of a South Carolina woman investigating for herself the strange properties of the alleged “snow” that fell on her area […]

Well it certainly took long enough, dammit. After all the dumb conspiracy theories about Barack Obama, why did we have to wait until the final week of 2013 for someone to say he’s in cahoots with Space Aliens, huh? Unless… all the others who tried to reveal the truth are dead! Better start looking into […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, our weekly collection of cranky crap that wasn’t worth a full post, but was too incandescently stoopid to ignore altogether. First up, Bryan Fischer told all his followers on Twitter today to go read this shocking billion-word exposé of what Teh Ghey is really all about, as explained […]

Here’s your Conspiracy Theory du jour: the Wingnuttosphere is buzzing with warnings that the United Nations is on the verge of taking over the Alamo, that sacred symbol of freedom and resistance to tyranny (especially Messicans and Obama) in San Antonio, Texas. From there, presumably, the UN will proceed to crush liberty, seize all the […]

Former half-term governor, current Facebook pundit, and definite mother of at least four Sarah Palin has some Thoughts, y’all. Those thoughts are a) diabetic pregnant fainting ladies are hilarious, because of how they are not even tough enough to take two flights across four thousand miles after their water has broken for the delivery of […]

Oh, gosh, kids, have we got a treat for you! Yesterday, we brought you the braindroppings of a Clinton conspiracy lackwit, Robert Morrow, who wants the world to know about the Clinton’s secret shame: Chelsea is not Bill’s daughter, but is in fact the biological daughter of Webster “Webb” Hubbell, an idea Morrow has been […]

Our friends at Talking Points Memo think it’s news that Dean Chambers, the delusional data debaucher who gave the world “Unskewed Polls” to prove that Mitt Romney would win the election by eleventy-hundred electoral votes, is pretty sure that Barack Obama is a gay homosexual person who likes men. But this is not actually news! […]

UPDATE: We’ve heard back from the National Interagency Fire Center; additional details at end of post) Well, golly, here’s a break from all that Syria stuff: the National Home for Completely Plausible Conspiracy Theories, aka WND, ran a story today suggesting — in that asking-questions-in-a-headline way — that al Qaeda is behind the wildfires burning […]

Forget trying to make sense of Peggy Noonan on Syria. We’re sticking with Alex Jones. He may not be anchored in reality, but at least he’s clear about where he stands. Which is solidly in the Twilight Zone: Alex Jones said this week that an effort to avert a U.S. attack on Syria with diplomacy […]

Update: Whoops, misread the date! White-a-palooza is October 12, not September 12. Our good Tennessee blogfriend Southern Beale sends us a tip about a rally — if you can call something attended by “the tens not hundreds these days” a “rally” — being held this weekend correction: scheduled for October 12 by the Neo-Confederate “League […]

Well, gosh, nobody saw this coming. Somehow, it is supposed to be hugely controversial that Secretary of State John Kerry was on his boat for part of the day when the Egyptian military picked a new Pharaoh last week, because foreign governments totally pay attention to whether American cabinet members are behind a desk or a binnacle. Then […]

You might all be surprised to learn that sometimes at Wonkette our language is, shall we say, less than decorous. You are shocked, we know! But ’tis true! We lovingly let people know they can eat bags of dicks and we never miss an opportunity to remind you that Jim Hoft is the stupidest fucking […]
