Bill Maher said something to the effect in this video, “that we need a good conspiracy theory”, or, “does anyone have a good conspiracy theory?” And I’m thinking as I heard that, Oliver Stone was sitting right next to him on this show. The man whose made a career out of conspiracy theories. Go back to 1991 with JFK about the JFK assassination and perhaps Platoon, that was about the Vietnam War. And in this video which I’m guessing is at least a few years old, because they were talking about Hugo Chavez as if he was still alive. Chavez has been dead for two years.
Bill Maher likes to talk about what he calls the “Crazy Left.” I tend to call them the Far-Left, but Senator Bernie Sanders is pretty Far-Left as a Democratic Socialist and has economic policies that I don’t agree with and has a much larger role for government, especially the Federal Government than I do. But he’s certainly not crazy and doesn’t throw out conspiracy theories for the most part. And say things like America and Israel are in to wiping out the Palestinians and want to occupy Iraq indefinitely because they want the oil. So maybe Crazy Left will be what I call our Left-Wing, well characters lets say to be nice. Because there are good rational intelligent people even on the Far-Left in America. Like Bernie Sanders and many others.
