At this point several main-stream media outlets such as MSNBC and CNN have looked at the Jade Helm 15 conspiracy theory. What about other conspiracy theories?
Conspiracy theories seem to be a “cottage industry” of sorts – especially among many on the right.
On May 4th, MSNBC discussed the English Defence League, Afzal Amin, and Texas conspiracy theories.
British Tory candidate Afzal Amin was suspended from the Tory Party after planning with far-right extremists in the English Defence League to stir up racial hatred and then artificially “diffuse” the situation in a cynical attempt to win votes.
Pamela Geller is an American political activist and commentator known for her anti-Islamic positions and opposition to Islamic activities and causes, such as the proposed construction of an Islamic community center near the former site of the World Trade Center, writes Wikipedia. Her viewpoints have been described as “anti-Islamic” or “Islamophobic.” She says her blogging and campaigns in the United States are against what she terms “creeping Sharia” in the country.
She is currently the president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative which she co-founded with Robert Spencer. The American Freedom Defense Initiative has been designated an anti-Muslim hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The American Freedom Defense Initiative recently held a “Draw the Prophet” contest in Garland, Texas, where two radicalized Muslims reportedly had a shootout with police.
Ironically, Geller’s group has worked with the English Defense League in Britain.
MSNBC looks at the right-wing conspiracy “cottage industry.”
