Common Sense Conspiracy frequently parades around other popular conspiracy sites to see what they are reporting. Not because we want to steal their stories, but because we want to see what the temperature of the conspiracy paradigm is at the moment. Basically, there is a pattern to the normal conspiracy sites that don’t base their material on factual data but on charming and alarming creations to cause a stir and lure in viewers. We aren’t going to outright name the other sites, but many of you know what we’re talking about. A big story breaks on one; it then makes the circuit, and pretty soon, this effect of gloom and doom can be created. Some people fall for this system and start to believe things they otherwise wouldn’t just because it is being bombarded on them by so many “independent” sources.
A lot of the major conspiracy websites run about like the mainstream media. That is, they are all about the numbers and afraid to get left behind on any hot-button issue. Of course, both the mainstream media and the conspiracy websites we are referring to have no respect for authenticity, reporting the news, or checking facts. It’s all about being first to the party. CNN has been mighty guilty lately of reporting things erroneously in an effort to get ahead of the other news organizations, many of which CNN accuses of falsehoods on a regular basis. It’s a race…and while the conspiracy circuit is totally different in nature, it functions in much the same way.
Right now the story that is running the circuit hard is a bold prediction that conditions are now ripe for a MAJOR false-flag operation in the next week. You can go to any of the major conspiracy sites out there, and there will be a major, front-page story about this right now. And it may even capitalize MAJOR to capture your attention, or some sites even go farther with blinking text, graphics, and everything short of a naked woman to try to suck you into pushing your mouse button. As you can see, Common Sense Conspiracy is not running that story, but because we had some of our loyal readers question whether this was something to be truly concerned about, we saw it fit to address it to try to bring some, well, common sense to the equation.
All of the stories say the same thing with a little different wording. The government is planning a major false-flag operation to take America’s minds away from some of the craziness going on in our government right now. There’s the Benghazi thing, with more information coming out daily. There’s the revelation that the IRS seems to pick on certain groups more than others in its validation process. The Boston Marathon bombings have evolved into perhaps one of the biggest conspiracy theories around. The stories say that all of these distractions are leading to more distrust in the American government, and yes, even President Barack Obama himself. So, it’s time to bring the nation back to its patriot roots with a good 9/11-esque false flag. A little shock and awe effect to make Americans forget the gun control bickering, Benghazi accusations, and get back to the business of being the puppets of the government to do their every wish and bidding.
All of the articles give that same curious deadline. Within a week. Five to seven days. Hide the women and children. Buy some bottled water. We’re in for it. Somebody’s going down in a blaze of glory, and you never know where they will strike this time.
What does Common Sense Conspiracy say? It’s garbage. Do we believe that the government plans operations like this from time to time? Absolutely. But these are watershed moments in history, and they don’t usually come very close together. Another false flag would not bolster American support of the government; it would likely lead to more name-calling, blame-placing, and even more conspiracy theories. So, the idea that this will quash unrest is just silly. Additionally, the amount of scandal we are seeing in Washington right now is ugly, but it’s not unusual. We believe you could find similar levels of controversy in any administration at any given time. Why a false flag would now have to be imminent, in a limited time range of a week, we can’t imagine. Oh, yes we can. It’s just standard fare for these conspiracy sites to try to get attention and fear-monger. They don’t have to have facts. That would just be a waste of their time and resources. Why not make doomsday predictions with absolutely nothing to go on? That’s way more fun. And, until Common Sense Conspiracy came along, there was no one to oppose them. We are not against conspiracy theories. We are not a “debunk” site. We call plenty of conspiracies just what they are, but on this one, we have to cry foul and refuse to go with the cool kids in the crowd. There is no reason to think that a false flag operation is any more likely this week than any other.
Another thing to think about: you would be shocked by how many Americans don’t give two shits about Benghazi and what happened there. These other conspiracy sites are playing this angle up. They are trying to make it seem as if Americans en masse are condemning President Obama on this issue. The reality is that the same detractors to Mr. Obama are saying the same things they always say; his supporters turn their cheek and scoff at any mention of a cover-up or that anyone in the administration knew anything. The average American was spellbound while the Boston Police hunted Tsarnaev, and woefully disinterested by the Republican Party’s desperate attempt to make Benghazi a real issue.
We aren’t saying that Americans shouldn’t care about Benghazi. However, we don’t think the government, or President Obama, for that matter, are shaking in their boots that the American public is incensed about Benghazi. If they want a false-flag, then they’ll have one. But it won’t be for any of the reasons or timetables that our conspiracy website friends have listed.
