Hi All,

I have seen quite a few posts here regarding how Conspiracy Theorists are being blatantly used by TPTB as a propaganda tool. To try and steer citizens into their way of thinking and push whatever rhetoric down our throats.

I have now found an example that has got myself a little bit worried.

From 9/11 to Usama Bin Ladens Death to Roswell excetera... We are ALL crackpots, nutcases, fruit loops and whatever other term is used to try and blacken our good names. Now it seems that this little exercise is starting to spill into entertainment programs. Notably the WWE.

I don't know if anyone else here watches the WWE. Many people have their reservations about it for many reasons but to those who do, may know what I'm talking about as I go on.

Currently, there is a storyline involving a wrestler by the name of R-Truth who recently became a Heel (Wrestling term for bad dude!) And for the last few weeks has been yapping about his push, or lack thereof, for a shot at the main WWE Title.

His main gripe is regarding a Conspiracy against him to stop him from attaining a title shot. So what? you may ask. Well, this is escalating into a scenario where we are being made out to be looney tunes. Watch this little snippet from Monday Night's Raw show, fast forward to around 5:30 to see for yourselves. Listen and decide.

Monday Night Raw 23.05.11

You heard that right? Even the good ole WWE is having a dig at us. Yeah I know, some of you may say "Just a storyline" or "It's an angle" but the fact is, at least in my eyes, is a smear campaign in full swing. Considering the WWE has a huge following what better way is there to get to the masses. It's genius.

I'm interested to know if anyone else has any other examples like this flooding into entertainment. Excluding the News of course.

In the words of R-Truth - "The truth shall set you free".

*Mods - I wasn't sure were to put this, so feel free to move*

You are not "Crazy", or "loonies", but fact remains that a lot of people are leading pretty mundane lives. They go to the same job day after day, doing the same thing day after day. they may have lived in the same residence year after year, going home to the same family day after day, the same life style day after day. the same routine day after day. park their car in the same place in your garage or drive way day after day. take showers at the same time day after day, kiss their significant other the same ways/times day after day. Eat dinner at the same time day after day. Put the kids to bed at the same time night after night...and so on and so forth. I do not blame those people for wanting to believe that there is more out there than the life they are leading that is more exciting, more interesting, and even more powerful than that. I do not believe that these people are crazy, just craving more out of life, even if it means creating something that is not really there. And if this happens for a long period of time, these fantasies become believable to these people in every sense of the word. I chalk it up to "Fantasists", not crazies. After all if that was my life, I would probably urn for the same fantasies too just to make it through life day after day. It is a matter of psychology (I'm not saying that they are psycho, or anything like that) but the human psych requires a certain level of intensity. And if one is left in one room with no contact with the outside world for one year, that person's view of reality will be so much different than what is really going on in the world. And they would even get to the point that they believe their fantastic view of the world so intensely that they would even die or kill to defend these fantasies they themselves created in their mind, even if they are the only ones who believe them.

Trying to equate WWE believers with conspiracy theorists is like comparing WWE believers to normal people.

As long as you oppose the majority, you always run the risk of being a laughing stock. You will be mocked, scorned, and laughed at.

The praise of men is a thing that comes and goes. Truth remains truth forever.

Hundreds of years ago, there were those who dared to say the world was round. They were severely ridiculed. But we revere them now.

Speaking of selling books, one prize whoop-bang-bang example of a laughing stock is Mike Bara, author of a book ("The Choice") that contains so many howling errors of fact that I'm surprised it didn't self-destruct right off the presses.


Mike Bara's many, many goofs were a feature in a recent podcast:
