I’m usually not big on conspiracy theories, at least not the liberal kind. Progressives, Democrats, or whatever else they are calling themselves these days are very much into individualism, so much so that I don’t think most of them have the stamina or desire to cooperate with at least one other person. You need that for a conspiracy.
However, this week I’m coming around to the idea that they might be turning over a new leaf. In fact, I’m pretty sure that all of this focus on Big Bird and his impending pink slip is a diversionary tactic to take the nation’s attention away from something else, something that smells of death and smoke and deception.
I’m talking about the scandal in Benghazi.
By now, the idea that the riot in Libya was caused by a YouTube video has been shown to be completely false. I myself bought that initial interpretation, one that was promoted by the administration in the person of Hillary Clinton. The Secretary of State was all over the place talking about tolerance this and bigotry that and making the rest of America feel as if Muslims were the actual victims of the attack.
