The ultimate “Zionist” conspiracy

If you’ve hung out in forums where Holocaust deniers, 9/11 Truthers, and other conspiracy theorists hang out, as I have done, one thing you’ll notice is that these particular purveyors of dubious conspiracy-mongering seem to have a particular love of demonizing Jews (or, as the smarter ones tend to call them in order to try to skirt obvious charges of anti-Semitism, “Zionists”). If you believe such nuts, Jews are responsible for exaggerating the Holocaust, for destroying the World Trade Center, or even for for the destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia or even Hurricane Katrina. Indeed, the sheer number of things that nutjobs want to blame the Jews for beggars the imagination.

Fortunately, there is now a tool to help me to make the connections that we “sheeples” are unable to see but that conpsiracy-mongers find so compelling. Fortunately, to help us goyim minimize our confusion over just what conspiracies Jews are involved in (and, with idiots like David Duke, David Irving, and a host of other anti-Semites coming up with new things to blame “Zionists” for on a daily basis, you know we need help), I present to you the the Zionist-Conspiracy-O-Matic. It’s all the guidance anyone needs in this area.

Come to think of it, why should Jews have all the fun making up conspiracies in which they play the prominent role, all to make fun of idiotic conspiracy cranks? Come on, what about the Illuminati, David Icke’s lizard people, the Masons, the U.N., and, of course, the Catholic Church? Surely we can generalize the Zionist-Conspiracy-O-Matic to handle all these favored targets, too!

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
