"...for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." - Galatians 6:7 (KJV)
Since 2008, the Republican Party has been playing wink-wink nudge nudge games with conspiracy theorists.
Not just with the Birtherstani and their ilk. Remember the right-wing freakout last year over the "Jade Helm" military exercise? The one where the Governor of Texas embarrassed himself and his state by setting the Texas State Guard to watch over the US military "just in case"?
Remember the claim that Walmart stores were going to be turned into FEMA camps for political prisoners.
Remember the claims that Muslim terrorists were sneaking into the US via Mexico?
Remember the claims about "Agenda 21"? Or that "Common Core" was a plot to turn our students into socialists??
Or that the Democrats were going to force the US into a merger of the US, Mexico and Canada into the "North American Union"?
Or that President Obama was a secret Muslim and was going to institute Shariah Law??
