The SpinWatchers are always one for a conspiracy theory, and like most conspiracy theorists they fall for the ‘Bilderberg Group runs the world’ myth.
According to SpinWatch (we’re not making this up) the Bilderberg Group is a ‘Zionist plot’ but at the same time has ‘innumerable shady, still unexplained connections’ with the Nazis’; it is ‘a megalomaniac secret cult’ but also an ‘extremely influential lobby group of power-brokers’
Losing perspective the SpinWatchers say:
Serbs, not without some reason, blamed Bilderberg for the 1999 Balkan war and the fall of Slobodan Milosevic: after all, the US needed to control vital, Balkan pipeline routes. Bilderberg 2002 – although not without controversy – is thought to have cemented the invasion and conquest of Iraq. In his seminal A Century of War: Anglo-American oil politics and the New World War, F William Engdahl details what happened at Bilderberg 1973 in Sweden. An American outlined a scenario for an imminent 400% hike in the oil prices of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Bilderberg did not prevent the oil shock; instead it planned how to manage with mega-profits – what Kissinger described as “recycling the petrodollar flows”. Everyone that mattered was present at this Bilderberg: oil majors and major banks
What is more Bilderberg is responsible for the idea of a European Union, and has described its ultimate goal as ‘a one-world government’.
The sole source for all this nuttiness is a journalist, Pepe Escobar, who, though Brazilian, writes almost entirely in the Asia Times, apart from the books he self-publishes at Nimble.
