6 Whacked Out Ebola Conspiracy Theories You Should Check Out


I guess it was inevitable that conspiracy theorists would climb out of the woodwork in the wake of the current epidemic. We decided to take a few minutes and put together 6 whacked out Ebola conspiracy theories we thought you might want to check out.


Donald Trump was one of the earlier nut-jobs, taking to Twitter back in July to express his paranoid delusions at the thought of these two people with Ebola actually being allowed back into the country for treatment. Of course, the really scary thing is how many people actually follow and agree with him.


Not one to be left out, Fox joined in the festivities and in August Greg Gutfeld did a segment on the Ebola freak-out that’s been going on, and he actually introduced some facts into the discussion. Can you imagine?….facts on Fox?? I know, it sounds crazy, but it’s true. He informed his Fox audience that no one is at any risk unless they literally exchange bodily fluids with someone who has the virus.

Gutfeld was doing great on his rant until he tried to take a dig at Obamacare and countries who have socialized medicine. He said that the two doctors who are now being treated in Atlanta only came here to America because we are the best country in the world. And he made some comment about how they didn’t choose to go to Canada or any other country.

OK, well I hate to break any bubbles for those who are always defending American exceptionalism, but the two Ebola patients came back to the U.S. because they are both Americans. And yes, we do have some fantastic doctors here, but unlike what Gutfeld tried to say, these two patients are not being treated by private doctors, they are actually being treated by government doctors from the CDC.

Check out this clip….it gets really good right around the 4:55 mark:


As The Washington Post reports, “One of the latest comes from Phyllis Schlafly, who in an interview last week said President Obama purposefully allowed Ebola to enter the United States so the country would be more like Africa. “Obama doesn’t want America to believe that we’re exceptional,” Schlafly said. “He wants us to be just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too.”


Just days before, Rush Limbaugh said Obama welcomed Ebola here as payback for slavery, or some such nonsense – it is never easy to attempt to follow his logic train… According to the Rush, due to some sense of guilt over slavery, the United States doesn’t have tighter travel restrictions with Liberia – something to do with the country being founded by freed slaves.

As Jezebel reports, “Liberia came to exist because of American slavery,” Limbaugh told a caller on his radio show, in an attempt to explain the (imagined) liberal mindset. “And since they fled to this country to escape the bonds of slavery and they set up Liberia — if it hadn’t been for us — they wouldn’t now be suffering from this virus.”

“The danger we have now is that we elected people in positions of power and authority who think this or think like this in terms of this country being responsible, this country being to blame for things and it’s that kind of thinking that leads to opposition to shutting down airports from various countries.”


On Monday, embattled singer Chris Brown took to Twitter to reveal his theory on the epidemic: “I don’t know … But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. … getting crazy bruh,” Brown tweeted.


And as the Washington Post points out, “you can always rely on the Internet to cook up its own conspiracies. For instance, did you hear that a 17-year-old episode of ‘The Simpsons’ correctly predicted this Ebola outbreak?”

Aside from a book , YouTube user Angel White proves the theory pointing out a clock from the scene: CLOCK HANDS at 1 and 7 .. 17 years later from 1997 gives you 2014.”
