Via Atomic Nerds comes a hilariously on-point bit from The Onion.
9/11 Conspiracy Theories ‘Ridiculous,’ Al Qaeda Says Anyway, it turns out satire has already been outrun by reality. AQ is accusing the Iranians (Shiite) of spreading conspiracy theories that Israel is behind 9/11 in order to undermine AQ (Sunni).You can’t make this stuff up, folks. It’s also a good illustration of how profoundly self-centered- dare I say it, parochial and arrogant- the Troofer outlook is: it automatically discredits the poor little brown folk as not being capable of doing something that clever and effective. Therefore, WE must have done it… in the outlook from over the sea, the finger falls on the other all-powerful boogeyman, the JEWS.
This isn't the first Onion publication which is actually a bit more insightful than the MSM take and there's something not quite right about that.
