Right wingers blame airliner tragedy…on Obama?

I posted an article here on my blog yesterday about the tragedy that occurred on Thursday, in which the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down in eastern Ukraine.  At this point, it isn’t known if it was Ukrainian or Pro-Russian rebel forces that brought the plane down.  Most of those who have been following the coverage of the story believe that it is the rebels who are to blame for the incident.  However, some right wing conservatives accuse President Obama of being behind the attack, or influencing it.  Even in its absurdity, it isn’t surprising at all.  It truly seems that whenever something bad happens, even if it doesn’t involve the U.S., republicans blame the 44th President.  Republican logic: If it’s freezing outside, it’s Obama to blame.  If there’s a shooting, blame Obama. If illegal immigrants are crossing the border, blame Obama.

Those who believe this ludicrous accusation support it by claiming that the President’s announcement on Wednesday, the day before the plane was shot down, of more sanctions on Russia provoked the rebels into shooting it down.  Firstly, why would the rebels be angry at sanctions targeted at Russia?  Sure, they might support Russia, but they don’t even live in Russia.  They’re in the Donetsk People’s Republic,  the self-proclaimed state in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine.  Second, if the rebels are angry at the U.S. for imposing sanctions on Russia, than how does taking down a plane they believed to be belonging to the Ukrainian military show their hatred for America?  It doesn’t.  That’s because it doesn’t have to do with America and it’s why the rebels wouldn’t do such a thing because they’re angry at the U.S.  If anything, it’s the Russians themselves who should be angry at the U.S., they’re the ones who will actually be affected by these sanctions.  Of course, this reasoning did not occur to the Republicans who blamed Obama for the disaster.


Those were some Tea Party conservatives or republicans making those statements, what’s even more ridiculous is that conspiracy theorists think that the downing of flight MH17 was a false flag operation intended to weaken international diplomacy and move the world towards WWIII.  Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist journalist at InfoWars.com, if you haven’t heard of him yet, said this on the Friday broadcast of his show, the Alex Jones Show.

So my issue is: this could be a false flag.  The way the Russians are acting, and putting out this information and things, makes me begin to lean towards something even more complex.

Here’s what I do know about flight MH17, this Malaysian airliner: The globalists stand to gain from all of this.  It comes on the cusp of Israel completely destroying Gaza.



Although I don’t agree with conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones on this issue, their claims are a lot more developed and consist of much more evidence than the Republicans who accuse Obama of the tragedy.  They know that if they’re going to question reports by main-stream media and what officials have said about the attack, they need to create a good thesis  and use supporting evidence for why a bigger power would be behind this, but that’s not what they’re doing for this event!  Alex Jones presents the fact that international diplomacy is at an all-time low, with the crisis between Israel and Hamas and this event in Ukraine, and then uses it to claim that we’re heading toward another World War.  After that, he has no more evidence.  He doesn’t even know who to blame for being the master minds behind the whole attack.  If you’ve seen his show before, you know that he’s been saying this stuff for years, but none of it has happened yet.  After the Boston Bombings, he blamed it on the government and claimed it was a false flag. Whenever there’s trouble, he seems to think it’s because of NATO, or the Bilderberg group, or any mysterious, powerful group.  I don’t deny that those organizations exist, I’m just don’t believe that they have enough influence and power as the libertarians and conspiracy theorists make it out to be.  These conspiracy theorists don’t want to believe whatever the mainstream media or government says, they ignore facts they don’t believe, so they make up these absurd theories and struggle to find evidence for it.  Ultimately, that’s what they are, “theories”, not facts, just theories.  I wish people would enough common sense to believe the facts they’re presented with, but instead they’ll listen to whatever fools like Alex Jones says just because they don’t want to be on the side of big government.

    It truly seems that whenever something bad happens, even if it doesn’t involve the U.S., obama blames Bush. Republican logic: If it’s freezing outside, obama blames Bush. If there’s a shooting, Obama blames. If illegal immigrants are crossing the border, obama blames Bush.

    How does it feel? 😉
