Gun wackos see closing of lead-smelting plant as an evil plot by Obama


Right-wing conspiracy theories usually involve the conflating of a seemingly innocent action with sinister motives on the part of the usual suspects.

Conspiratorialists can make a census, for example, look like part of a fiendish government plot to put us all in concentration camps.

Or, as we see in a recent case, the closing of a lead-smelting plant in Missouri for environmental reasons can be made to look like a government scheme to disarm Americans who have been stockpiling guns for the inevitable showdown with Barack Obama’s storm troopers.

Steve M. has the story HERE (including the fact that federal action against the lead smelter in question was commenced under a Republican administration).
