5 Reasons Conspiracy Theorists Are More Popular Than Mainstream Media

 (Saman Mohammad)  Telling the truth is popular.  1. Public opinion polls show that the majority of Americans and Westerners agree with the views of “conspiracy theorists” more than those of government officials and media personalities. 

Public opinion polls show that public trust in government and the media is at an all time low. Their record of lying to the Western public is difficult to conceal, even with the biggest propaganda machine in history at their disposal. The growth and influence of the global alternative media has broken the magic spell over the public. The “mainstream media” is no longer mainstream. The old fringe is the new mainstream.

Conspiracy theorists have been proven right about so many issues and historical events, with 9/11 being the most important among them. The views of conspiracy theorists are more popular than ever because they are telling the truth.

Jesse Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota, tested this truth with a live CNN audience on Piers Morgan’s show on Monday, September 17, 2012. At the 11:45 mark in this video, Piers Morgan tells Jesse Ventura, “I think you make some very sensible points and you make some crackpot points.” Ventura responds, “That’s your opinion,” and then asks the live audience, “How many people here think I make crackpot points?” One person puts up his hand. He follows up, asking, “How many think I make sensible points?” The audience cheers and claps. Ventura turns to Morgan and says, “You’re in the minority, my good friend.”

2. The label “conspiracy theorist” has been used to death, and it is no longer effective in sidelining anti-government narratives to the fringe of public thought and public discourse.

Honest Western intellectuals have caught on to the fact that the label“conspiracy theorist” is a ridiculously overused in Western public discourse and serves no other purpose than to marginalize dissent. The label is used by abusive government officials and media personalities to subvert the democratic will of the American people and attack the credibility of dissidents.

It is a sign of social progress and intellectual development that more people are aware of the true intentions behind the habitual use of this totalitarian label by the government and media.

3. The global alternative media is raising the political consciousness of America and the West, and liberating millions from a propaganda prison whose bars are made of language and official narratives.

The reasons why people reject conspiracy theories are more well known today because of the Internet and global alternative media. This profound change has had the effect of creating a highly self-aware and super-conscious public that cannot be easily fooled into believing government false flags and deceptions as it was before.

Millions of thoughtful individuals are learning to treat anti-government narratives rationally and maturely, whereas in the past they used to stick the label “conspiracy theory” on them and didn’t take them seriously. In the new language of mental resistance to government oppression, the term “conspiracy theory” is not applicable to alternative readings of history and alternative interpretations of current events.

4. The contradictions within mainstream narratives are harder to gloss over than before. 

It is impossible to keep track of all the official deceptions. Recent revelations in Libya and Syria have put mainstream narratives of the conflicts taking place there into question. After unofficially arming and financing Al-Qaeda affiliated groups in both countries, certain Western policy makers and their counterparts in Israel and the Arab monarchies are dishonestly making the argument that the growth of radical Islam demands greater Western intervention.

But their manipulative policy is the reason why the influence of radical Islamists is growing in the Arab world, so their case for more war is built on sand and illusion.

In this new information environment, conspiracy theorists are able to make the case that their interpretations of epoch-making historical events are factually correct by providing evidence and historical analysis to back up their controversial statements.

5. The growth of the public intelligence community over the last several years is counter-balancing the power of anti-freedom forces in secret intelligence communities and their spies in the corporate media. 

From now on, conspiracy theorists should be described as public intelligence analysts. We are part of a public intelligence community whose headquarters is the entire world. The public intelligence community has bases in North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, China, Russia, and the Middle East. Our loyalty is to truth, freedom, and peace. We investigate reality to serve humanity, and bring nations together under the banner of peace and co-existence.

Public intelligence analysts such as Webster TarpleyThierry Meyssan,Alex JonesTony CartalucciDavid IckeGerald CelentePaul Craig Roberts, and many others are destroying deceptive mainstream narratives that have been created to justify needless conflict between countries and civilizations.

The global 9/11 truth and justice movement is the fruit of the public intelligence community. And it will grow exponentially as more people wake up and look into the 9/11 events with a more critical eye.

  • Let’s take them one at a time shall we?

    The title references the fallacy the whole article is based around.

    is an extended fallacy. It is argumentum ad populum. That is “Lot’s of people believe it so it must be true”. You have got to be kidding me!
    History, heck even science has thousands of things that MOST once believed, things they even said they had proof of, that have since been proved wrong.
    Then the author goes on to LIE and say that many (or most) of the conspiracy theories were proved true..now that’s just hysterical! LIKE WHICH ONES? 9/11 has been thoroughly debunked, Kennedy assn has too, fake moon landing is childish, Patton assn utterly debunked.
    And before anyone ever uses Jesse V as a source I’d suggest you check into some of the psychotic drivel he spouts on a myriad of other subjects. It might make a sane person shy away from referencing him.
    IS this writer stupid or just deluded. Does he not know that people come to those shows to see the people that the show advertises will be there. So a bunch a Jesse Ventura followers show up and agree with him. WOW I am impressed!
    Son in #1 he makes many claims and proves nothing at all except he is a fool and/or a liar.

    Not too much to disagree with here except the author labeling as ” “totalitarian” those who call other “conspiracy theorists”. That’s as funny as the video of the guy at the Dem convention when he asked all the people if the Dems were big tent people and tolerant, then he’d mention the conservatives and they get crazy intolerant.
    #2 has some truth in it but also utterly fails to support his premise of growing popularity of conspiracy nuts.

    also fails to support the premise and also has some truth in it. I see a pattern in this writer where he starts off with correct or plausible statements then slides right out of reality with unsupportable nonsense. Get this last sentence under #3;
    “In the new language of mental resistance to government oppression, the term “conspiracy theory” is not applicable to alternative readings of history and alternative interpretations of current events.” Um…what? First of all the big problem in the relentless deception proffered by the MSM and the leftist is the “new language” they are foisting upon us. Perverts are ‘gay’. And to disagree with their agenda makes us phobic’. And disagreement with BO is ‘racism’ etc. Anyone who pushes a new language is pushing a cult. Truth is what they all hate. They all desperately WANT to believe whatever idiocy they have crawled into. So the eschew logic, and reason, and correction, They will almost NEVER read the contrary evidence. This is how the left survives in the face of overwhelming proof that all they believe is a lie. They just do not ever check it. They will read some other leftard liars dismissal of the conservative answer and convince themselves they have heard both sides. It’s beyond pathetic. LIES AND LIARS ARE WHAT IS DESTROYING OUR WORLD.

    Now it seems this guy wants to call any lie the media utters a conspiracy! Really? That’s pretty absurd. There is a Grand Canyon sized gap between a MSM lie and a conspiracy theory. Yes, much of the media has followed the White House lead and lied about the cause of the riots by the muslims. And just like about 100% of such lies they didn’t get by with it for a whole week before the truth came out.

    Again does not support the premise. Yrs ago I noticed what I called the 24 percenters. I noticed that there were a long list of polls taken on a wide variety of questions. The polls that asked the most absurd implausible and absurd question had a consistent group that believed the inane answer over the logical and plausible one.
    Though it was not always 24% it seemed to hit there a lot so I used that name.
    Anyone who suggests that the likes of Alex Jones is “only interested in the truth” is deceived. I could name a long list of idiotic things Jones has said that were subsequently proved to be lies and I have yet to hear him apologize for any of them.
    One great example was the “prison train cars”…WOW! What a load of crap. Totally exposed as lies. Not a shred of actual proof. I’ll bet no one in 100 of the Alex Jones disciples ever even went looking for the truth.

    People that REALLY want the truth will always check out the words of the opposition. They never proceed or push their view until they refuted the facts that contradict it.

    “Many men have fancied themselves intellectuals due to their IQ or expertise in various arenas of this life.
    However, a true intellectual is one who willingly gives up any belief as soon as he is presented with a better one.
    He refuses to allow any emotions to influence his reason or hold him captive to lesser ideas.
    Further, when any challenge is presented, he works to find the truth of it without prejudice so that he may possess that truth.
    History shows us innumerable examples of great minds in nearly every field, denying and even suppressing a new truth that they refuse to honestly review.
    The arrogance and cowardice of the powerful and intelligent pseudo-intellectual has caused an almost incalculable amount of loss and suffering in nearly every field of human endeavor.”
