Daily Beast Columnist Goes Full Conspiracy Theorist Over Trump Pulling Troops from Syria

Published

Admittedly, watching liberals who cried over the war in the Middle East just a decade ago, cry now that President Donald J. Trump has taken steps to end the same war has been amusing.

But Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah has gone full conspiracy theorist, claiming that Trump orchestrated the troop withdrawal from Syria with Russian president Vladimir Putin more than two years ago, before Trump was elected president.

“Was this part of your deal with Putin to help you win the 2016 election?” Obeidallah Tweeted in response to Trump’s announcement that he would be withdrawing troops from Syria.

After two years of investigation, there is still zero evidence that the Kremlin had anything to do with Trump’s election. But that is the narrative that the conspiracy loons in the mainstream press have chosen, and they are sticking with it.

“Message heard by your comrades in Moscow. Does this mean by pulling out troops as Putin wants you can finally build Trump Tower Moscow?” Obeidallah sad in another Tweet.

Obeidallah and Daily Beast are playing the “willful ignorance” card here, ignoring the fact that two things can be true at once: Removing troops from Syria can be good for the war-weary American people, and also good geopolitically for Russia. Benefit on behalf of both parties does not suggest an agreement – or a conspiracy.

But the Russian hoaxers are happy to take this decision at face value, attempting to turn it into proof of their insane “collusion” theory. Perhaps we are old fashioned at Big League Politics, but we are waiting for tangible evidence of some sort of crime before we indict Trump the alleged crime. Daily Beast, on the other hand, apparently does not have such stringent guidelines.

Daily Beast did not return a comment request.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
