Why is everyone – especially Americans – falling for conspiracy theories? Because there’s something exciting about thinking you’re engaging in something that’s too innocent for others to see. They’re all goats, you see. The truth is out there in the form of blurry photos and anonymous internet posts taken at face value. What do weirdos believe these days? There are 6 popular conspiracies on discussion boards and social media.
6. Lorde is actually in her late 30s or early 40s!
New Zealand musician Ella Marija Laney Yelich-O’Connor, stage name Lorde, wrote the hit song “Royals” at age 16. It is evident that the lyrics are more mature and the melody is more elegant. Wise beyond his years. This can only mean one thing: she must be faking her age! There’s no way she was born on November 7, 1996! What evidence? Sometimes she looks older, which happens when a young woman wears make-up. Oh, but what about when she said she was a teenager Virgin suicides Released in 1999? Or she let it “slip” in an interview Vanity Fair Is she really 45? Maybe – maybe! – She enjoys screwing with the truthers.
5. Eminem is dead and secretly replaced!
Say, did you notice how Eminem looked when he was in his late 20s/early 30s, the way he did in the prime of his career? He is 47 and may be naturally old. His weight has fluctuated and he has a history of drug addiction, so of course he must be dead. Or maybe killed in a car accident. Or more likely the Illuminati were devastated by his refusal to join their organization, so they wrapped him in a rug and threw him off a bridge. So how do you explain that he is still making music and giving interviews? He must have been cloned! Or maybe a cyborg.
4. The Beatles Never Really Existed!
The claim here is that there wasn’t just one John, Paul, Ringo and George, but a collection of body-doubles used over the years to give the illusion that they were a band. According to Tori, a woman who runs a website that promotes these claims, the “real” Paul McCartney was killed in a car accident in 1966 and had no fewer than 12 body twins. The “evidence” is a collection of photographs taken over the years that show the changes in his face. In addition, there were 3 John Lennons. However, the number of Georges and Ringos is never established and blah blah blah.
3. Courtney Love was attacked by her husband Kurt Cobain!
On April 5, 1994, Nirvana’s frontman was found dead in his home with a gunshot wound to the head. It was ruled a suicide and he even left a note. Why do some – including private investigator Tom Grant – think Love had something to do with it? Initially, Love suggested that when he overdosed on drugs in Rome a month earlier, it was a suicide attempt, although that has been disputed. In other words, by suggesting that Cobain committed suicide, Love could lay the groundwork for killing him beyond suspicion. It is also said that Cobain was very happy at the time of his death. Grant insists the lack of fingerprints on the gun and the fact that the singer had three times the amount of heroin in his system is too fishy to conclude that he somehow threw away the drug and killed himself to pull the trigger. .
2. Stevie Wonder wasn’t actually blind!
Well, admittedly this is kind of a conundrum. Here’s the deal: Stevie Wonder was born in 1950, no less than 6 weeks after he was placed in an incubator with so much oxygen that he went blind. Of course, this does not prevent an average piano and harmonica player from becoming a musical genius. But there are some interesting holes in the story. Many have noted how his songs contain rich, visual imagery that would not resonate with someone who cannot see. And a few years ago he got caught taking a photo of a wax figure of Michael Jackson. Why? So could he have described it to him later? And then there’s the video of him grabbing the microphone before it falls to the ground. Let’s be honest here: those reflexes look more cat-like than bat-like. Finally, the late basketball star “Chocolate Thunder” Darryl Dawkins (who was given his nickname by Stevie) once suggested that Wonder’s blindness was a ruse. Whether it’s true or not, it certainly explains why the music legend insists on courtside seats at NBA games.
1. Democrats drink the blood of children!
Known as the Canaan Conspiracy, it claims some nutty members of Congress as followers. This narrative is so crazy and dangerous that almost all social media platforms are banning videos and posts about it. It’s convoluted and silly, but in short, it says that the Democratic Party is full of people who drink their blood to gain immortality, including then-President Donald Trump and JFK Jr. (who faked his plane crash death 20 years ago). Hillary Clinton is going to order the arrest of Barack Obama and other top Democrats, sending them to Guantanamo Bay for summary execution. Of course, Trump is no longer in office, JFK Jr. never came out, and none of this happened. But true Canaanite believers come up with new stories to explain all this. The new theory is that Trump is still secretly president and it’s only a matter of time before he returns to the White House. Sigh.
