The first common use of the phrase “conspiracy theorist” arose shortly after the JFK assassination. The Warren report, the media, and the U.S. Federal Government all insisted that the sole assassin was Oswald, and anyone who wanted further investigations regarding the inconsistent evidence that was leaking out from various sources, including eye witnesses, was tagged with the phrase “conspiracy theorist.” The phrase or name calling was most often used with a sense of derision, and clearly meant to paint those who asked questions or challenged the narrative as wackos who did not deserve the time of day from rational and intelligent individuals. Conspiracy theorists were painted as the dregs of society, the worst of humanity.
It is more than interesting that neither at the time of JFK’s assassination, nor since then in regard to any other event, have the so-called conspiracy theorists been proven crazy or even unintelligent. No one has ever put a conspiracy theorists in front of a psychologist to give them an exam to see if they are crazy or insane or have any psychosis.
No one ever puts conspiracy theorists on a witness stand to testify under oath in an investigation of their claims. Never. They are always shut up as quickly as possible, and their character attacked so no one will take them seriously. In this age of technology, anything a conspiracy theorist writes or says is shadow-banned on the Internet or completely censored.
Since JFK, the term conspiracy theorist has been used extensively, and always has in mind the purpose of discrediting, demeaning, humiliating, shaming, and to shut the mouths of anyone who would question the main liberal narrative.
But the goal is much bigger than attacking the character of an individual. The bigger goal is to cover up the real truth, to falsify events with lies or misrepresentations, and to distract people from looking more seriously into the real issues. It is as if to say, “Come along folks, there’s nothing to see here. Move along!”
Beyond that the ultimate goal is control of the citizens. This is the case in every single nation on earth. Just look at China, Russia, Canada, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and North Korea. We could go on for a long time with examples, right? Whoever controls the narrative controls the people. Add America to this list of tyrannical governments.
The Profile of a Conspiracy Theorists Today in America
So what does a real conspiracy theorist look like? Here is a classic profile of a person who is accused of being a conspiracy theorist by the left:
He or she is either a christian or a conservative. [To simply this explanation, I’m not going to keep using alternative pronouns. I’ll just use the male pronoun, and you can insert the female if you like, but you have to either use male or female pronouns, because God made man and woman, not 100 genders.] There will be the occasional convert from liberalism to conservatism, and not necessarily on all issues. Liberals are never called conspiracy theorists by their fellow liberals, because they always go along with the liberal narrative. The generally accepted rule is “go along, get along.”
The accused [the so-called conspiracy theorists] are people who are not narcissistic, but teachable. They sincerely want to know the truth, and they understand, like everyone, they have a worldview that has been developed over their lifetime, and that it has molded their beliefs. What makes them special is that they are willing to be wrong if it means discovering the truth on a matter. In other words, they value the truth so much, they want to know everything that can be known about an event in order to decide for themselves what the truth really is. They want to know the who, what, and where?
These people also tend to be independent in the sense that they are not willing to blindly follow what others say, especially if the others are represented by government agencies or politicians. And they are strong enough in their own character to include churches in that category, meaning they won’t blindly do whatever a famous preacher says, especially when it comes to giving him all their money.
Among the genuine christians in this category of alleged conspiracy theorists, are those who love the Truth, because for them Jesus represents the Truth, and they believe the Bible is the only truly reliable source of truth. They are aware of Jesus’ warnings against deception in the world, and they know about the call to put on the whole armor of God:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV)
Also part of the profile of the so-called conspiracy theorists include these traits, although not every single person believes all of these:
- They are hard working and patriotic Americans;
- They have traditional values, including love of family, belief in marriage, opposition to abortion, and they treasure life;
- They love freedom and believe in the freedoms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights;
- They oppose censorship and all policies that hinder their freedom of speech;
- They believe everyone should have the right to speak their mind, even those who oppose them;
- They believe that government employees should be honest, and that government fraud and theft should be prosecuted;
- They believe a nation’s military should protect its borders against mass invasions;
- They don’t believe America should be experimenting with regime change around the world, and they oppose starting wars to benefit the ruling elite and the military-industrial complex;
- They believe churches should be free to worship God without interference from governments;
- They are the working class and they are professionals in all fields;
- They often homeschool their children, because they are concerned about the false values that are forced on children in public schools and colleges.
The Profile of Liberals Who Call People Conspiracy Theorists
Now let’s look at the general profile of those who are the liberals calling all these good people conspiracy theorists. Their single biggest trait or character flaw is narcissism.
Pride is the Bible’s word for the nearly equivalent secular psychiatric word “narcissism.” The DSM or Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is the Bible of Psychiatry, and they’ve done a good job breaking down the traits of a prideful person or what they define as a narcissist. All of these traits are clearly seen within the biblical definition of pride. Here they are:
The 9 Traits of a Narcissist
- Feels grandiose and self-important (exaggerates achievements and talents to the point of lying, demands to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
- Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion
- Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions)
- Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation – or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (narcissistic supply)
- Feels entitled. Expects unreasonable or special and favorable priority treatment. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her expectations
- Is “interpersonally exploitative” (uses others to achieve his or her own ends)
- Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with or acknowledge the feelings and needs of others
- Constantly envious of others or believes that they feel the same about him or her
- Arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes coupled with rage when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted
A person does not have to have all 9 to be classified as a narcissist. 5 will do, although it is surprising how many narcissists have all 9.
Do you see how these are clearly connected with the behavior patterns of radical politicians and government leaders today? Everyone is afraid to talk about this, but I’m not. You’ll see these same traits in the corporate leadership of the most powerful and richest high tech companies today. But that should be no surprise, because big tech and big pharma work hand-in-hand with big government.
These people who demonstrate they have the characteristics of classic narcissists are the very people calling the rest of us conspiracy theorists. They have no credibility. They hate God. They hate the truth. They want control over the rest of us, and they fully intend to take all our freedoms away from us, by force if necessary. These are the evil people labeling the patriotic Americans as conspiracy theorists.
Let me add one more characteristic of many of these evil people. Some percentage of them practice evil things that would shock the conscience of the average American, including satanism, idol worship, cultism, human trafficking, pedophilia, sexual immorality of all kinds, government fraud, and major criminal conduct for which they never get indicted or prosecuted. Not all who throw around the label of conspiracy theorists are involved in all of these horrendous sinful lifestyles, but all the people in this group viciously accuse honest, hard working, conservative christians of being conspiracy theorists.
Does this put the phrase “conspiracy theorist” in context for you? For the persecuted christian or the unbelieving conservative, this slanderous phrase is a badge of great honor! For the devoted christian this would be like an atheist calling you a bad person or an evil person. You would take that kind of attack in stride, knowing that the real evil is coming from such an atheist. You could even be encouraged because you know that “all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Tim 3:12
Whatever you believe, take a stand for what is true and right and do not be timid. Stand firm and stand tall. You have the Truth on your side, and God is watching.
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Revelation 3:15-16 (NASB 2020)
