The Nixon-Reagan-King conspiracy

Posted by Richard on September 1, 2006

I thought that 9/11 nuts like Rand Fanshier and Spooked (with his rabbit fencing WTC model and United 93 pencil sketches) represented the ne plus ultra of whackjob conspiracy theorizing. But I guess I just hadn’t fully grasped the breadth and depth and glorious technicolor variety of loonieness that exists in the world.

Case in point: Steve Lightfoot called Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Friday, and he left Hewitt completely nonplussed. That’s pretty remarkable — Hewitt is one of the most consistently plussed people I can think of.

But it’s hard not to lose your plussiness when someone explains in rapid-fire fashion that the Bush lies and Iraq war tie back to the murder of John Lennon, which was perpetrated by Stephen King with the help of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

If you’re amused, rather than angered or worried, by people like this, poke around Steve’s site. I especially liked The Killer’s alleged name and letter and the Footnotes and new Developments section. Here’s a taste from the first essay in the latter, "America the ugly":

The people of the San Francisco bay area will never live down the fact that,
when confronted with hard evidence that proves our government murdered John
Lennon, they ducked their duty to take to the streets and demand the arrest of
Stephen King. Before Nixon and Reagan died they failed to demand that they be put
on trial and jailed as well. For over twenty years the American public proved to
the watching world that now dislikes us, that we are anything but American
in practice.
As bad as raping a 14 year old girl then shooting her in the head three times,
then killing her family, including a 5 year old sister, then burning them all to
try to destroy the evidence of their conduct as just happened in Iraq involving
U.S. soldiers. That bad.
Right now you are letting our military help Israel do to the Arabs what we did to
the American indians. You are an ugly people.
I used to be just like you, too. I was raised on television, violence, selfish-
ness, greed and anti-intellectualism. When our government killed the Kennedy’s,
M.L.K., other black activists and rock stars I did nothing. It took the murders of
John Lennon and, later, John Balushi to get me off of my ugly ass and do something.
Many of you probably don’t know that Balushi’s assassin, Kathlyn Smith, was in the
same room with Lennon the night before he was shot in the back, but she was.
Incidentally, the writer of Animal House, Doug Kenny, was also killed that same
year and John Landis, the director of Animal House, almost lost his head with Vic
Morrow in that copter accident. So if some of you still think that that pyro-
technique exposion that almost blew Michael Jackson’s face off was just an ac-
cident, please pull your heads out of your stinky, ignorant, guilty asses right now.
Buddy Holly, Jim Morrison (Lennon was killed on his birthday), Bob Marley, Peter
Tosh, Jim Croce, Jimi Hendrix and many more cultural icons were probably murdered
by our government and your apathy and ignorance.

Whew! There’s a score or more essays, some of them less angry and dark — and more silly and fun. I only looked at a few, but I thought Clint Eastwood is No Good was especially amusing. Enjoy!

Don’t order his booklet, though — you don’t want Steve Lightfoot to have your name and address. 🙂
