It’s all one big conspiracy… II

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.

Who wrote the SpinWatch page? Most of the entries appear to be Strathclyde University Professor David Miller’s.

    Engdahl’s book is Lyndon Larouche’s nuttiness watered down enough to make it just about readable. Not exactly pro-Nazi, but paints the British as the villians and Germans as victims of the 20th century. I think Larouche’s original version has also been a bit more explicit in it’s anti-semitism.
