Andrea Vance on conspiracy theories

Andrea Vance has a helpful explanation about the various conspiracy theories out there.

The cybersphere has been full of conspiracy theories since Internet Mana announced a “strategic alliance” last month. But do the theories stack up?

1. There is fear, desperation and total panic in the eyes of the Right because finally a political party on the Left has financial clout.

Internet party founder Kim Dotcom stumped up a $3m war chest to fight the election campaign. Pow! The US, Barack Obama, Hollywood and John Key didn’t see that coming.

Sure, $3m is a lot of campaign coin. But National spent $2.3 million in 2011, and looking at donations registered this year Key won’t be rummaging down the back of the sofa.

The last round of polling put National above 50 per cent. Both Mana and the Internet Party are on about half a per cent each. Polling day is three months away. So, no, that’s not fear in campaign supremo Steven Joyce’s eyes. They’re just red from all the time he spends trolling on Twitter.

This one is a kite flown constantly by Martyn Bradbury. It is particularly crazy. THere is not a skerrick of fear in National, rather there is bemusement that the left have prostituted themselves and bent their knees to the Crook of Coatesville.

4. Independent MP Brendan Horan is a puppet of blogger David Farrar, who hates Winston Peters because the NZ First leader would have him fired as National’s pollster. Also, because he’s a Virgo.

Peters and Horan have traded blows for a few weeks. This is because Peters fired Horan, and Horan is dishing the dirt before he has to leave Parliament. Farrar writes a reasonably popular political blog – he doesn’t need Horan as a mouthpiece. And while he might be a Virgo, he’s also a Nat. And if Winston backs the Nats in Government, he’ll swallow it. After all, an NZ First-Nats coalition is more likely to hire him than Labour. OK, this has nothing to do with Internet-Mana. Or maybe it does . . .

This conspiracy featured in a whole post on The Standard. It is as crazy and laughable as the one Martyn Bradbury shills.

Most of her list are conspiracies pushed by the leftwing, showing they are prone to such tinfoil hat idiocy.

I note she didn’t put in Kim Dotcom’s conspiracy theories that John Key knew about the fat man long before he got here and it was all a plot by big business and barack Obama on behalf of the global corporate military industrial complex to secure Kim Dotcom in New Zealand to make his extradition easier.
