I can see the mafia playing a peripheral role, but I doubt they masterminded the whole thing. Their MO, then and now, is to avoid attracting heat. That's why killing cops and regular civilians is frowned upon.

Killing a sitting POTUS goes entirely against their code of conduct.

I found this interesting per wiki:

Quote:
During the six months following Kennedy's assassination, Ruby repeatedly asked, orally and in writing, to speak to the members of the Warren Commission. The commission initially showed no interest.

They eventually did talk to him but he didn't tell them anything, saying he feared for his life if he spoke to them in Dallas. He requested that he be moved to DC with protection and the Commission rejected his request.

The JFK assassination is a huge exception - - it's the one conspiracy theory that has some teeth to it. I don't believe for a second that the US government was involved, but I could see the Cubans and Soviets playing a role, with the US covering up to avoid nuclear war and save face. That's pretty far-fetched too actually.

Listen to this idiot lumping all "conspiracy theories" into one category instead of taking things on a case-by-case basis like rational people do. What a tool.

Considering members of the CIA were almost certainly involved in the assassination, its not very surprising that the records were "lost"

Obviously a Truther.

Let's look at some of the more popular conspiracy theories case-by-case, shall we?

9/11 inside job = DUMB. You morons can't even get your story straight on this one.
Birtherism = Debunked and dumb
Sandy Hook = tasteless and dumb
Fake moon landings = dumb
Flat Earth Theory = dumb
Holocaust denials = anti-semitic and dumb
Roswell = dumb
Elvis/Tupac/Jim Morrison/Andy Kaufman still alive = DUMB
Chemtrails = scary dumb
Lizard people run the world = shoot yourself if you believe this shit dumb
Government controls huge weather systems = monumentally dumb
Climate change is a hoax from China = Donald Trump dumb

Only a very small percentage of conspiracy theories are plausible and/or turn out to be true. The rest are stupid drivel consumed by paranoid lunatics who can't accept that random effed up shit happens all the time. It's like their government boogeyman provides them comfort in an odd way.

Great list, but you forgot to include the dumbest conspiracy of all (a conspiracy that is extremely popular right now) - the theory that putin hacked podesta and the dnc, then publicly published the documents, which somehow translates into "rigging" the election against Hillary

You guys should check out the book Libra, obviously its a fictional take on the assassination, but it's an incredible book.

Want an even dumber one? Bernie loses the primary by 3.7 million votes and doesn't carry a single large state outside Michigan, but because a few DNC staffers privately griped about his campaign, that somehow translates into "rigging" the whole thing for Clinton.

Rumor is a few dumbasses bought into this stupid conspiracy so much, they abandoned everything they claim to stand for and voted for Trump in the GE.

Mega cringe post

Dude can't even poke holes in his own strawmen. It's no wonder this maggot was calling a Hillary landslide.

Tera-shite has no rebuttal, so he goes back to bragging about Trump's fluke victory (AKA: the high point of his failed life).

im pretty sure the putin one is dumber. at least with the bernie conspiracy there is ironclad proof that the DNC leadership was doing shady things like trying to use Bernies faith against him. Why would DWS resign from head of the DNC if there was zero truth to the conspiracy? If you google "why did DWS resign" you will get countless articles like this one by WAPO - https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...c39_story.html

Quote:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida was forced aside by the release of thousands of embarrassing emails among party officials that appeared to show co*ordinated efforts to help Clinton at the expense of her rivals in the Democratic primaries. That contradicted claims by the party and the Clinton campaign that the process was open and fair for her leading challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Also this idea that Bernie bros who went over to Trump were somehow "abandoning what they claim to stand for" is hilarious.... as if Clinton somehow stood for any of the same things as Bernie

What exactly is there to rebut on your list? It looks like something that was compiled in your treehouse. Why did you call Sandy Hook theories "tasteless" but not holocaust denial? Are you an anti-Semite?

Here's a few more you forgot:

RFK = dumb lol
MLK = dumb lol
Malcolm X = dumb lol

Real authoritative stuff.
