Thanks again to Alex Jones for fueling the fires of American paranoia
Whenever a disaster strikes, the conspiracy theory crowd manages to churn out a conspiracy theory within a few hours, no matter how preposterous.
By the way, I recently read an interesting blog post (I wish I could find it now...) about what is so toxic about the "false flag" argument. It essentially takes a tragedy about other people and coopts it so that it becomes a tragedy about yourself.
Take the Boston Marathon: the bombing is a tragedy that struck hundreds of other people, killing three of them. That's pretty bad, but it has nothing to do about me personally.
Now let's say that I argue that the Boston Marathon bombing was a false flag operation designed to ultimately take away our freedoms. And presto: I have managed to make the Boston Marathon bombing be all about ME.
There are some people who insist that the entire world actually revolves around themselves. This is a great example of how they twist their worldview so that everything that happens is actually something to do with them.
Anyway, on to the tragedy of the giant tornado that demolished Moore, Oklahoma. The core of this theory is that it was caused by the HAARP antenna array, because of course it was. Alex Jones is fine with propagating this particular conspiracy theory, although even he is somewhat tentative about it. Is it possible that we have finally found the line that even Alex Jones won't cross?
Under our new lens, we can see that conspiracy theories about HAARP are a way to make the weather - which most people would consider to be an indifferent, uncaring force of nature - all about you. It's not a random act of weather, it's a conspiracy designed by the government to keep you under control.
Why would the American government deliberately destroy one of its own towns with a tornado? The main theory here is that it's a diversion tactic to distract people from the scandals that have been piling up lately, including the Benghazi hearings, the IRS targeting the Tea Party, and various other items of right wing outrage.
Here's the thing about the HAARP antenna array. You can tell it can't control the weather, because we are not controlling the weather. Huge storms, devastating droughts, and even more devastating seasonal floods have hit American cities in the last decade. Why would our government attack our own cities with its own weather controller? Why not ensure that our own weather is pleasant all around (thus minimizing expense, loss of life, and crop damage) while attacking other countries with bad weather? If the HAARP antenna array worked, why is the weather in Afghanistan, Iraq, and North Korea so stable?
