Another consipiracy theory brought to you by the Rev.
Pat Robertson is not unfamiliar with controversy; however he now takes on African-Americans and Planned Parenthood. He claims that many groups that fund Planned Parenthood are doing so to support the eradication of poor black folk by abortion and birth control. He goes on to state that specific corporations want to benefit from this cause they “don’t want a whole lot of unemployed young black people. They want to cut down on the incidence of black birth. And they’re paying great sums of money to organizations like Planned Parenthood to bring that about.”
Now the fact that Pat has said this should not be surprising to anyone, but I’m curious if it had been anyone else saying this, say someone with at least an ounce of credibility, how would the public react? That’s what’s amazing about conspiracy theories and foreshadowing of doom. The theory is unimportant really. What really matters is the person delivering the message.
Remember is was in 1997 that Oliver North warned the public of a mostly unknown Osama Bin Laden claiming that the man was soon going to directly attack the United States. He was mostly ignored.
