'Conspiracy Theorist'

Postby peaceseeker » Apr 18th, 2011, 9:44 am

Hmmm...when/where did the term 'conspiracy theorist' originate? Surprise, surprise...it was soon after JFK was assassinated and came directly from the CIA. Everybody and their dog needs to watch this...


Failure to Report : A Panel Discussion Among Journalists 3/26/11

Investigate Building 7 : A Call to Reexamine the Most Important Event of Our Time. March 26 2011, University of Hartford, Ct

Failure to Report : A Panel Discussion Among Journalists

Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Media, Culture and Communication at NYU
Leslie Griffith, Journalist
Craig Unger, Author
Dick Russell, Author

This panel will address the US media's tendency to look away from major stories of all kinds by dismissing them as mere "conspiracy theories." First will be a discussion the press's silence on the strange collapse of Building 7, and the panelists will move on from there to discuss other mysteries or scandals that, although they merit serious investigation, are either laughed off or ignored. Among these forbidden stories are the "OctoberSurprise"of1980, the fate of TWA Fligh t800,the CIA's reported drug dealing in America's innercities, theOklahoma City bombing and the epidemic of widespread election fraud since 2000.

Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.”
J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.

I thought this quote was the earliest one who had come up with 'Conspiracy Theorist'. I thought that this maybe said in the 1990.
But Peaceseeker as usual come up with some great stuff.

That was a good find, Peaceseeker. I particularly liked Crispin's statement that "The idea of an Elite conspiracy was a given and NOT a crack pot idea, but common sense" for the forefathers of the United States.

The Conspiracy Theory Narrative: Are You a Mind-Controlled CIA Stooge?
http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-conspi ... ge/5543367
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
Global Research, August 31, 2016
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org

Do you smirk when you hear someone question the official stories of Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris or Nice? Do you feel superior to 2,500 architects and engineers, to firefighters, commercial and military pilots, physicists and chemists, and former high government officials who have raised doubts about 9/11? If so, you reflect the profile of a mind-controlled CIA stooge.

The term “conspiracy theory” was invented and put into public discourse by the CIA in 1964 in order to discredit the many skeptics who challenged the Warren Commission’s conclusion that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, who himself was assassinated while in police custody before he could be questioned. The CIA used its friends in the media to launch a campaign to make suspicion of the Warren Commission report a target of ridicule and hostility. This campaign was “one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”

So writes political science professor Lance deHaven-Smith, who in his peer-reviewed book, Conspiracy Theory in America, published by the University of Texas Press, tells the story of how the CIA succeeded in creating in the public mind reflexive, automatic, stigmatization of those who challenge government explanations. This is an extremely important and readable book, one of those rare books with the power to break you out of The Matrix.

Professor deHaven-Smith is able to write this book because the original CIA Dispatch #1035-960, which sets out the CIA plot, was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Apparently, the bureaucracy did not regard a document this old as being of any importance. The document is marked “Destroy when no longer needed,” but somehow wasn’t. CIA Dispatch #1035-960 is reproduced in the book.

The success that the CIA has had in stigmatizing skepticism of government explanations has made it difficult to investigate State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD) such as 9/11. With the public mind programmed to ridicule “conspiracy kooks,” even in the case of suspicious events such as 9/11 the government can destroy evidence, ignore prescribed procedures, delay an investigation, and then form a political committee to put its imprimatur on the official story. Professor deHaven-Smith notes that in such events as Kennedy’s assassination and 9/11 official police and prosecutorial investigations are never employed. The event is handed off to a political commission.

Professor deHaven-Smith’s book supports what I have told my readers: the government controls the story from the beginning by having the official explanation ready the moment a SCAD occurs. This makes any other explanation a “conspiracy theory.” This is the way Professor deHaven-Smith puts it:
“A SCAD approach to memes assumes further that the CIA and other possibly participating agencies are formulating memes well in advance of operations, and therefore SCAD memes appear and are popularized very quickly before any competing concepts are on the scene.”

The CIA’s success in controlling public perception of what our Founding Fathers would have regarded as suspicious events involving the government enables those in power positions within government to orchestrate events that serve hidden agendas. The events of September 11 created the new paradigm of endless war in behalf of a Washington-dominated world. The CIA’s success in controlling public perceptions has made it impossible to investigate elite political crimes. Consequently, it is now possible for treason to be official US government policy.

Professor deHaven-Smith’s book will tell you the story of the assassination of President Kennedy by elements of the US military, CIA, and Secret Service. Just as the Warren Commission covered up the State Crime Against Democracy, Professor deHaven-Smith shows why we should doubt the official 9/11 story. And anything else that the government tells us.

Read this book. It is short. It is affordable. It is reality preparation. It will innoculate you against being a dumbshit, insouciant, brainwashed American. I am surprised that the CIA has not purchased the entire print run and burned the books. Perhaps the CIA feels secure from its success in brainwashing the public and does not believe that American democracy and accountable government can be restored.

Thought it interesting to read the term "conspiracy theory" wasn't invented by the CIA.

The invention of the phrase "conspiracy theorist" - 1967 by the CIA
http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/cia/ ... orist.html



"Discourage unfounded speculation"

Someone invented the phrase "conspiracy theorist"?

Who and why?

It was invented by the CIA in 1967 to try to stop a runaway train.

What runaway train was that?

The JFK assassination.

No one believed the story.

It would be well known that a conspiracy theory submitted by a person would therefore make them a conspiracy theorist which would mean the CIA could not have invented the phrase. The Journal of Mental Science clearly states
that the conspiracy theory of Mr. Charles Beade, and the precautionary measure
(1871).
Blaskiewicz researched the use of the term conspiracy theory and found that it has always been a disparaging term, having been used to describe "extreme hypothesis" and implausible speculation as long ago as 1870.[20][21]

Thanks, Fancy. You should take the time and listen to what Melissa Dykes has to say...you might learn something! :130:

Nah - I'm good - learned that the term "conspiracy theory" has been around for a long time and mentioned in a 1950 journal as well.

Yeesh, we're talking about 'conspiracy theorist', not 'conspiracy theory'!

Folks who invent or preach conspiracy theories, often have an agenda. There is no better example that the current POTUS, Donald Trump. For five years, at every opportunity, he continued to publicly speculate that former Pres Obama, was not born in the USA. Even after the state of Hawaii issued first their short -- then long -- forms of his birth certificate, Trump speculated that these documents were forgeries. It wasn't until he was well along in his presidential race, that he conceded that he might be wrong. Based on Trump's poisonous ramblings, there are still lots of folks in the US, who believe that Obama was born in Africa, and that it's been hush-hushed over the years.

There must be a personality type, that is more prone to believing all this nonsense.

Peaceseeker, don’t expect someone trolling the conspiracy threads to look at any information posted before making a nonsensical argument. Trolls will be trolls.
Strange times are these in which we live
 when old and young are taught in falsehoods school. 
And the one man that dares to tell the truth 
is called at once a lunatic and fool
