The NFP has long been a favorite among conspiracy theorists, and the recent spate of articles from NFP authors about the conspiracy theory surrounding the assassination of JFK have only made the NFP seem more dangerous.
In a recent article titled The NTP Conspiracy: The Murder That Changed America, author James O’Keefe claims that the NSPCC’s conspiracy theory “has not only taken over the United States, but is now a major part of the mainstream news cycle.”
“This is a serious and dangerous trend,” he writes, adding, “NSPCCs conspiracy theories are not only wrong, they are the most popular conspiracy theory in the country.”
He concludes: “The NFP’s current wave of anti-conspiracy rhetoric is a threat to our democracy.”
In fact, O’Keefe argues, conspiracy theories have been used to destroy democracy in the past.
“Conspiracy theories are a tool for totalitarian regimes to destroy the free press and media outlets and to keep their subjects in a constant state of paranoia and denial,” he wrote.
Oddly, O’Reilly claims that his conspiracy theory is not a conspiracy theory at all.
“[NSPAC’s] conspiracy theory, as it was first created, was a warning to the American people against a conspiracy,” he said.
“It was not a statement about the NPI, nor was it a statement of fact.
It was an accusation, a warning, that we were in danger, and that we had been misled.”
Owen Thomas, the former deputy assistant director of the CIA and former director of intelligence for the FBI, also claims that NSPAC has been a “conspiracy theory” since it was created.
Thomas, who has also authored books about the JFK assassination, also wrote an article entitled Conspiracy Theories: A History of Conspiracy Theory from JFK to 9/11 titled Conspiracy Theory in America: From JFK to the Present, which states that the conspiracy theories that came after JFK’s death were “totally discredited.”
According to Thomas and other NSPCA members, conspiracy theory was “not a useful tool” in the 1960s and 1970s.
For example, former FBI agent James J. Babbitt said in an article titled “A Guide to Countering the NTP: What the Feds Don’t Want You to Know” that conspiracy theories were “a lot like the Klan in the 1930s.
They were not a legitimate means of achieving anything but they were a way to undermine the power of the state.”
Another former FBI agent, William O’Brien, told the New York Times that conspiracy theorists “are a little like the Ku Klux Klan, except they are a lot more sophisticated and dangerous.”
And former CIA analyst and author Richard A. Clarke wrote that “the conspiratorial fringe of American politics” has “been the target of sustained attack.”
It is interesting to note that Clarke’s article was written in 1974, but in 2015 Clarke wrote an entire book called Conspiracy Theorists: An American History, where he writes that the “conspiratorial fringe” has been “attacked by the mainstream press for over a century, not just since JFK.”
While conspiracy theorists have been accused of using “consensus politics,” “consensationalism,” “theocratic dictatorship,” and other methods to undermine democracy, Clarke and many other conspiracy theorists argue that the goal of their work is to “destroy the existing order.”
One of the primary methods they use to accomplish that goal is conspiracy theories, which they believe are designed to “disprove” or discredit those who have questioned the government or the official narrative.
So how do conspiracy theorists attack the truth about the assassination?
In an interview with The Blaze in 2016, James Ostermann, a former CIA agent and former deputy director of counterterrorism for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, described how conspiracy theories can be used to “get you to do something you don’t want to do.”
After 9/1, Ostermanns response to questions about the NSPCA’s conspiracy theories was “That was all just a fabrication.”
His comments are particularly interesting since, according to Ostermans book Conspiracies: A Guide to the Use of Conspiracy Theory in the Intelligence Community, Osters “explained that the CIA’s intelligence operations were not motivated by conspiracy theories and that the agency’s focus was solely on counter-terrorism.”
The same Ostermeier, who also has authored books on the JFK murder and the JFK Commission, explained to the The New York Times, that he believes the conspiracist fringe is “designed to undermine public confidence in government and in the legitimacy of the institutions of government.”
Additionally, NFP’s author James Lipscomb, who wrote about the
