28 Percent Of Americans Believe In Global New World Order Conspiracy

Belief in powerful shape-shifting lizards is also trending. Public Policy Polling has released the results of a telephone survey this past month of 1,247 registered voters which measured belief in various conspiracy theories. Findings include:

• 21% of voters say the US government covered up a UFO crash in Roswell, NM.
• 28% believe a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government, or New World Order, .
• 20% believe there is a link between vaccines and autism.
• 7% think the moon landing was faked.
• 13% think Barack Obama is the anti-Christ.
• 14% say the CIA was instrumental in creating the crack cocaine epidemic in America’s inner cities in the 1980’s.
• 4% say they believe “lizard people” control our societies.
• 51% say a larger conspiracy was at work in the JFK assassination.
• 5% believe that Paul McCartney actually died in 1966.
• 11% believe the US government allowed 9/11 to happen.

    I think we’re making progress here.

    • BuzzCoastin

      with the evidence so blatantly obvious
      I wouldn’t call 28% progress
      it indicates that the majority of Americans are in a coma

      and rightly so

  • mole_face

    Not surprising, considering how hard the government has been pushing these psychologically manipulative right wing conspiracy theories ever since they installed Obama in office.

    It’s interesting to examine the parallels between the current “anti-NWO” disinformation propaganda and the conspiracy theories that allowed the Nazi party to sweep up the German population in so much of a fervor that they thought it was acceptable to send “undesirables” to death camps. At the time the German people were actually convinced that they were engaged in a populist uprising against the embedded global banking cartel who’d hijacked their economy. The Nazis were even opposed to Freemasonry. Does any of this sound vaguely familiar?

    That isn’t to say that the NWO conspiracy theories are all bullshit though – I’d say that the basic premise is completely true, and they get most of the details about 75% correct. But everyone needs to take a step back and realize just how far gone our society truly is. The fact that we’re living in an anti-human corporatocracy fed by the blood of millions is already so goddamn blatant that you’d have to be willfully blind to ignore it. Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, Glenn Beck etc. all seem to share the same M.O. where they point out a lot of the OBVIOUS truth while also going out of their way to infect it with weirdo far-right ideology. I don’t think the establishment likes heavily armed self sufficient militia crackers all that much more than they like anarchists, but I think our rulers would far prefer dissidents to gravitate toward far-right ideology than far-left.

    • I_abide

      How is being self sufficient and heavily armed more preferable to a ruling body than being an anarchist?

      • mole_face

        There’s enough of a crossover between extreme-right politics and “normal” right wing ideology to make it preferable – gun culture, Christianity, fervent nationalism, worshiping the “founding fathers”, etc.

        Anyway – you don’t find it suspicious that as soon as Obama got into office, immediately Fox News and Glenn Beck started parroting the vast majority of the same anti-NWO views as Alex Jones did under Bush? Anyone could’ve easily predicted that a large segment of the white population would flip the fuck out in response to a half-black guy getting into office. If you’ve been following the “alternative media” since 2008, they’ve gradually stepped up the insane propaganda since then. Slowly Alex Jones has started race-baiting and giving a platform to reptilian conspiracy theories, Jesse Ventura has that cartoony Conspiracy Theory show, blah blah blah.

        • mole_face

          I don’t expect many people to agree with me – I just wanted to put this out there to hopefully provoke some critical thinking in others. I’m also interested to see how many people here have noticed this same pattern over the last five years. The fact that the population is being deliberately whipped into a frenzy like this seems to suggest that our society is in for some profoundly fucked up shit in the near future.

          • mannyfurious

            No, I think you don’t go far enough. I actually think the government wants armed citizens. If we obliterate each other, they won’t have to. Plus they like the false sense of security it gives to some people. As if a few guns are going to stop drones and tanks and fighter jets and propoganda and the FDA and …..

      • funkzillabot

        Hahaha…….REALLY? That is so sad. Seeing boogie men because you can live with the emptiness of your wasted, pointless life. Looking for others to blame instead of facing the fact that the only person to blame for YOUR situation………..IS YOU.

      You’re a dunce. Your side is the paranoid one thinking that Conservatives are out to get you, then you try as hard as you can to overcompensate. The majority of the “1%”, whatever that means and who you’re trying to relate it to, is Democrat you dummy so stop drinking the Kool-Aid and go do some actual research for yourself. Obama is feeding you shit and you’re eating it with a smile while he’s taking lavish vacations and being that “upper ruling class” on your and your family’s dollar and future. You should be glad the right wing is taking a stance to protect even people like you.

      • mole_face

        I voted for Nader back in 08 and I never once took this Obama psy op seriously. I just find it interesting that all the “anti NWO” conspiracy theories that were prevalent in the alternative media during the Bush regime immediately went mainstream during the Obama administration. And by “going mainstream”, I’m not referring to them just gaining steam over time – I’m referring to blatant establishment mouthpieces like Fox News and Glenn Beck starting to run off the same disinfo script as Jones as soon as Obama was installed in office.

        And for the record – I think 911 was obviously staged and the vast majority of what Jones talks about is true, underneath all the creepy militia diarrhea he sprays all over everything. I don’t trust our rulers for shit and I never did.

    • moremisinformation

      “I don’t think the establishment likes heavily armed self sufficient

      You seem to think that all anarchists come out of the “left”. If this is what you believe, you’ve missed large swaths of anarchist philosophy in your studies.

      • mole_face

        Good point. I stand corrected.

    Conspiracy theories are whacko! There is no such thing as billionaires cooperating with each other out of mutual self interest! How silly!

    • Juan

      Exactly, how absurd. Also, groups of people never agree to do crimes and keep quiet about it. That never happens.

    • BrianApocalypse

      The idea of billionaires cooperating out of mutual self interest isn’t really a “theory” though is it? Neither is the idea of regular people doing the same thing. The only difference is that one group has far more power and influence than the other.

      But there’s a long way between simple acknowledgement of how the world works and believing that world leaders are satanists/occultists/aliens or plotting genocide.

    • tiramisu

      Sometimes paranoia really is a heightened sense of awareness.

      How do you explain then the collusion of international bankers that have used debt to destroy western economies in yours… all around the same time… and many other 3rd world countries around the world… the Bilderberg group really exists and meets, so does the IMF and the World Bank…… did you vote for any of those people or have a say in their decisions? Follow the money.

    then again,obama is apparently a fan of such conspiracy theorists…he even has one serving as his sec. of defense.

    I think there are lizard people though. I think an earlier (possibly extinct) Lizard civilization existing in hyperspace implanted cultural memes into the human collective unconscious.

    Picture a parasitoid wasp, laying eggs in a caterpillar, only the host is the human collective unconscious and the eggs are memes. Or it could be akin to a virus, i.e. the wetiko virus.

    So you have the people embodying these memes the most, resonating to them very strongly and in positions of power. They are possessed by the lizards. In an altered state of consciousness you can see them shape shift.

    Its not literal in the sense that they are actually physical lizards. They just resonate very strongly to the lizard archetype.

      It’s pretty clear that Barry is not The Anti-Christ, but he certainly is a front man for The Empire, a corporate stooge and the bitch of the military industrial complex, just like the shrub. He serves the system and does what he is told. He is a TOOL.

          As far as I’m concerned anti-christ is a compliment.

          • funkzillabot

            Wait….what? Really? Then, why are you so offended by my defending Obama? It’s just odd is all (politics I mean.) I’m not a hardcore Christian, so I’m not going to get in your face about your religious believes — those have nothing to do with me.

          • Juan

            I was not offended in the least. Don’t know how you got that idea.

    • ersatz

      meanwhile,obama adores and protects monsanto (enough to appoint an ex- monsanto lackey to the helm of the fda),and so does bill gates the eugenicist who’s invested in it..since gmos are an effective tool to poison, sterilize, depopulate the 3rd world,and our domestic population,and all done with plausible deniability,and now w/ federal protection under the ‘monsanto protections act’

      sadly,even in light of the recent backlash this past week.. monsanto mockingly announced a 22% increase in profits…as a ‘fuck you’…to the public that’s already fuming.

      so tell me…just how evil is that?

          while bush,cheney,rumsfeld..these war criminals were never prosecuted by the war criminal obama admin,and he simply continued their murderous foreign policy,but now with drones…so,maybe you should ask why that is.while you question obama’s conscience instead…

          while they offer blood money for all the murdering…

          then again,obama’s distant cousins with cheney..so maybe he’s just lookin out for family…and they do say sociopaths gravitate to political positions,because they don’t have any conscience.
          instead..politicians have literally turned their empathy ‘con’,into a ‘science’

        • Juan

          That’s kinda intersting; whose more evil, Barry or the shrub? Actually, I think Barry is more evil because of the massive, and sadly ongoing deception involved. Also, because Barry is getting away with shit that the shrub could never have gotten away with. At least with the shrub, the evil was right out in the open.
          Interestingly, I still find the shrub more loathsome. I wonder why?

  • Juan

    Terence McKenna notes that “Conspiracy theories are epistemological cartoons.” I’ve been thinking about that for a while. The thing is, it seems that conspiracies are pretty much how the world works. There seem to be new ones coming to light pretty much everyday. We are awash in both conspiracies and conspiracy theories. It’s also pretty clear that people project all kinds of different ideas into their favorite theores. I suppose this says more about the conspiracy theorists, than any ontological “reality.”
    I guess where I part company with most conspiracy theorists, is that while I have no doubt there are all kinds of conspiracies happening all the time, I just cannot believe that there is one, all powerfull conspiracy that is actually running the show. Such ideas seem overly simplistic, and as Terence suggests, cartoonish. It looks like what we have instead, are various different conspiracies all vying to further their respective agendas. It looks to me that no one is actually in charge.
    Another thing I’ve noticed, is that even the lumpen mouth-breathers are beginning to notice that things are not as they seem or how they’ve been sold to the masses. This is why you’ve got such a proliferation of bat shit crazy, right wing, conspiracy theories floating around. In my more optimistic moments, I think this is actually a good sign.

      “I guess where I part company with most conspiracy theorists, is that while I have no doubt there are all kinds of conspiracies happening all the time, I just cannot believe that there is one, all powerfull conspiracy that is actually running the show. ”
      Try reading Gnostic cosmology. They seem to believe the created cosmos is one vast conspiracy to trap our souls and be fed to the Overlords. Ironically, Castaneda’s Don Juan said something similar concerning the Eagle. Shamans seem to be in tune to this cosmic conspiracy.
      “This shit goes all the way to the top- to the president of the US, and the UN, man”
      “Nope, even further. To the creator of the universe”

      • Juan

        I am only superficially familiar with gnostic cosmology. While the idea of the xian god as demiurge makes perfect sense to me; the god of Abraham is a fucking psychopath ass clown, after all. I just cannot believe that our ultimate end is as psychic fodder for our cosmic overlords.
        Now that I think about it, it’s not even a question of belief. From my experiences in the Amazon with Madre Ayahuasca, I was shown something very different than the hopeless psychic abattoir you suggest.

        • jnana

          well, if you read Castaneda there is supposed to be a way to escape having yer awareness consumed by the Eagle. The gnostics also propose a way of overcoming Heimarmene.

        “But here steps in Satan, the eternal rebel, the first free-thinker and
        emancipator of worlds. He makes man ashamed of his bestial ignorance and
        obedience;
        he emancipates him, stamps upon his brow the seal of liberty and
        humanity, in urging him to disobey and eat of the fruit of knowledge.”

        - Mikhail Bakunin

        • jnana

          Satan is not an archetype for us to follow. Yes, he may be rebellious, but he rebels foolishly, and is the force behind oppression. He represents selfish amorality and is a deceiver. I don’t understand why people try to turn him into a hero. If you want an example of a free-thinking rebel, examine the story of Jesus. He represents a tactful rebel, who values Service to others. Satan represents a petulant ass who chooses not to serve man, and put others above himself. how is Satan a liberator and how is his way equated w/ liberty? He is a slave to the fleshly impulse and the power impulse. Perhaps, he urges disobedience to God, but that means obedience to other forces, forces that do no good for health of self and others. People that try to make Satan into a hero are being ignorant and just trying to be rebellious. But I generally dig Bakunin’s philosophy.

          • Calypso_1

            Given your familiarity w/ gnostic strains of thought i’m surprised at such a mundane ontotheological position. It’s not as if radically different interpretations don’t have historical precedent.

          • jnana

            I think the Luciferian/Satanic “gnosis” is an immature understanding. It follows a certain pattern meant to be emulated, but perverts it. That is, the archetype of the Rebel. Think of all the individual rebels throughout history, and compare them with the two opposing strains of rebellion exemplified by Jesus and Satan. The Satanic rebel, the Crowley, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison rock n roller, the Marquis de Sade, Ayn Rand etc. are upholders of selfish values. The ascetic Jesus and saintly rebels uphold Love of Others. That may be said to be the main difference b/w what Satan represents and Jesus. Jesus believes in love and compassion for the weak and oppressed.
            I think most rebels are prejudiced towards Jesus or else they’d recognize him as a hero to be emulated, a radical. Instead, they regard Lucifer as a hero to be emulated. Lucifer wants to “reign in hell rather than serve in heaven” Jesus teaches egalitarianism and abdicating our reign to serve on the ground with our brothers and sisters.

            What are the radically different interpretations you are speaking of?

    “14% say the CIA was instrumental in creating the crack cocaine epidemic in America’s inner cities in the 1980’s.”

    This is of a different order to the others (one of a conspiracist bent might suspect intentionally so). The CIA’s role in facilitating cocaine and heroin smuggling and distribution is well documented, from the ‘politics of heroin in southeast Asia’ in the 60′s and 70′s onwards. Whatever you think of the Gary Webb material, the Kerry committee found much to support it, and it’s clear the CIA was exempted from “formal requirements regarding the reporting of narcotics violations”, as the 1982 correspondence between Attorney General William French Smith and CIA Director William J. Casey gently put it.

  • Rob Lai

    Not going to address the whole ‘is there/isn’t there’ (the truth is likely far more complex than we think, as usual) but just make an observation. In my (anecdotal) experience, there often seems to be a similarity to religious thinking in conspiracy thought, which looks to me to be an extended dialogue on the subject of the “Problem of Evil”. The patterns of Abrahamic religious thought especially (which, being American, is where my head goes automatically when I’m talking religion) lend themselves to addressing the subject of an ultimate evil causing a fallen/flawed world.
