Beck Invents New Meta-Conspiracy Theory

Glenn Beck presented a whole new conspiracy theory, or a meta-conspiracy because it involves pretty much everyone. It’s all about “System X,” which he vaguely defines as a conspiracy between big business and the government. It has something to do with monitoring school children with emotional sensors, or something. But remember, Beck dismisses Alex Jones as a conspiracy theorist.

    Follow-up on comment #2: I have no idea why Beck would specifically name GE rather than IBM. Probably it has something to do with the Illuminati.

    Maybe Mr Bek didn’t ‘invent’ this latest ‘Rube Goldberg’ conspiracy theory – it just kinda meta-stasized.

    Fools! System X is red herring to prevent you from noticing the real conspiracy – Plan 9!

    I love the elbow patches and not-tucked in shirt. That + chalk dust and I almost think I’m learning from an actual teacher.

    Taz – Where do you think the plan came from in the first place?

    I’d watch out for them evul Martians and their ‘war on Santy Claus!

    The only thing that Beck’s “System X” has in common with Plan 9 is that he’s really in dire need of some Alien guy walking up to him and shouting: “You see? You see? Your stupid mind! You’re stupid! Stupid!!”.

    And the only interest Big Business could have in measuring the emotions of schoolkids is for developing drugs to get rid of the few that remain, as well.

    Probably more to do with the fact the GE, until very recently, owned NBC and was thus the employer of Rachel Maddow and former employer of Keith Olbermann.

    Does System X have anything to do with Barry Soetoro’s real father, Malcolm?

    He started his analysis off so well, too. If he just would’ve stopped at, “Government and big business are in bed together…” everything would’ve been spot-on.

    But I guess that wouldn’t’ve allowed him to show off his really cool spinny chalkboard.

    That was weird. I have a friend who is both communist and into conspiracy theories and her rants about an evil cabal between government and corporations sounds a lot like this.

    Yeah, I was going to apologetically mention the shirt tails, too. If he was going for the academic look, I think he may have missed it. Homespun academic, maybe.

    As for government and big business in bed together, when he said that I immediately thought of the Oil company lobbyists sleeping with the Department of the Interior employees. It’s probably unnecessary, and I’m certainly restating the obvious, but he has a few accurate detail (there are unethical connections between people in ‘big business’ and the government, ‘big business’ needs an educated work force) and has leapt to some heavy duty paranoia. Kind of misses details like ‘big business’ and the government are not monolithic entities and just aren’t that well coordinated.

    Hmmm…my Mac runs OS X. Should I be conspiring with someone?

    You’re a little late: the plan to take over the world with shiny gadgets us pretty much completed.

  14. says

    Uh, nigel@18, they invented the googlemachine for that.

    Uhm, yeah. I know. And I knew who it was before I wrote what I wrote. I also know it’s only fools, idiot conspiracy theorists, and/or comedians who call him that. (I’m assuming comedian in this instance.)

    And women have another X chromosome where they should have a Y. That means something!
