Obama blamed for tornadoes. Is he bigger than God now?

Oh yes, YOU KNEW this was coming. A conspiracy for the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

Why Did Obama Make Those Tornadoes? Ask the Tornado Truthers!.

The Tornado Truthers know these shocking weather events have nothing to do with the weather extremes climate scientists have long predicted for a planet rapidly heating from our civilization’s burning of fossil fuels and global industrial production of farting meat animals. Monster storms are caused by Barack Obama and his predecessors in the White House/New World Order, using powerful storm-making technology like the massive HAARP antenna farm in Alaska.

HAARP. The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a convenient scapegoat for everything weird people perceive is happening. It’s to the point where conspiracy theories are automatic and incredibly absurd. I sort of fear for the future of America when people this paranoid vote. I’ll go on record here as saying if you think this idea has any merit, seek help. You are a dysfunctional citizen.

They say “oh how convenient” that a disaster happens in the midst of a scandal. It’s the start of storm season in the Great Plains. Extreme weather is nothing new in this part of the world. This happens every year. How convenient. It’s just short of astounding that people can regularly think that the President is out to destroy towns and kill people as a distraction. That is actually quite a psychopathic trait and rather rare with world leaders. I often think the conspiracy theories are the mental ones. Their ideas are so detached from any reality.

Do you recall they blamed him for Hurricane Sandy too? He’s like GOD! Amazing.

I probably have to add a sarc mark to this. <sarcasm> Not that it matters…

Addition: Alex Jones joins the bandwagon. I see that sinkholes are also a government plot. I have quite extensive experience with sinkholes if anyone, you know, wants to ask an actual hydrogeologist or anything.

    Democrats think Obama getting elected was bigger than jesus, but Republicans actually think he is God!

    This is a joke, right? Are you sure the source isn’t The Onion?

    I know it’s gawker, so it’s terrible, but the following quote:

    “Conspiracy theories adapt to the prevailing political and cultural moods. When George W. Bush was president, you could find endless theories on liberal-left blogs and message boards linking Hurricane Katrina to Dick Cheney running the HAARP beams over the Gulf of Mexico to drown all the black people.”

    Yeah, not so much. Yes, there were Katrina conspiracy theories, mostly based around dynamiting the levees. And I’m sure you can find someone who said the above.

    But especially once you get outside the issue of food/drug purity, the leftish side of American politics is far less conspiracy theory prone than the right. This has been true for a long time (see Hofstadter) but it has gotten worse in the last 40 years with the rise of the Christian politicized right, and then again in the last five with Obama. Even at the depths of the Bush administration and the height of 9/11 Trutherism, half of Truthers were conservatives (and the ringleaders like Alex Jones and Jeff Rense, hard to consider them very liberal), primarily of the Ron Paul sort, who of course have just become the Tea Party and its fringes.

    Furthermore, conspiracy theory has minimal traction within the organized and elected Democratic Party. The GOP, on the other hand, can’t go more than a few weeks without a state senator blathering on about Newtown or Agenda 21, and then you have the likes of Michelle Bachmann amongst others. Never mind that at one point, a majority of GOP voters were Birthers, and many GOP congressmen were all too happy to either tacitly support birtherism, or refuse to answer (knowing that a majority of their voters agreed with it). As youtube links don’t seem to work well here, just go google “Birthers on the Hill.” It’s in a couple of pieces, and unfortunately the best part (one congressman hiding in the Congressional store pretending to by pencils, so he doesn’t have to answer whether or not Obama was born in the US) doesn’t seem to be there anymore.

    Of course, no convenient disasters have destroyed pyongyang, or tehran, presumably what such a device was built for. Must be some nefarious reason…

    It wouldn’t bug me so much if they didn’t simultaneously deride Obama for being incompetent. This would be a weapon system to make nuclear weapons obsolete, win every arms race, and he accomplished it in complete secrecy. Pretty impresive by any standard.

    Except that the ideology believes all actual conflicts are shams, and that the actual conflict is a global conspiracy against Christians, as part of the End Times.

    So, does this mean he IS or ISN’T a reptilian space alien ?? Because if he ISN’T, I want to change my votes. That’s the only reason I voted for him to begin with. Can I borrow someone’s Time Machine ??

    HAARP is one of those real-world objects that, since regular people don’t know what it does, kooks have turned into a magic wand of limitless explanatory power.

    This post highlights another kook favourite: motive. If they can imagine a motive for an act, they assume all the logistics — however improbable — have been actuated. Obama needs a disaster to respond to so he can look presidential, therefore, Obama caused an F4 tornado. How? Black budgets and classified technology (two other kook magic wands). No more investigation required!

    ” The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a convenient scapegoat for everything weird people perceive is happening. ” Does that mean it’s a scapegoat for all the weird thing people perceive are happening, or the things all the weird people perceive are happening?

    This is from the same people who say that human activity couldn’t possibly cause global warming. Uh-huh!

    I wish Obama were half as interesting as these quacks seem to think he is.

    This is one of the craziest conspiracy things I’ve heard yet. Like @ snoma above, I think it’s got to be one the jokes thought up by the ONION folk. Just too funny.

    Funny, Obama has put together one of the most powerful secret weapons in the history of mankind and keep it 100% secret, and what he uses it for is to destroy 25 square miles of a city most of us had never even heard of. Well, maybe it was just a test before sending a tornado to Little Rock or Birmingham Alabama.
