40. Whenever something occurs, like the Marathon bombing,

the attempted Times Square bomber, violent actions by those supposedly with the Occupy movement, WTO protesters, etc, a false flag claim is made as soon as it turned out the person/people responsible aren't the white republicans we were speculating it would be. Hell, I heard someone suggest just the other day that Code Pink and Medea Benjamin are really a front for the Koch Brothers. The repukes do basically the same thing, it's not unique to one side or the other.

As more information comes out, many will relent and agree that in this case it probably wasn't the people they initially suspected, often after coming up with some explanation why this is some unique situation that doesn't really count when considering larger issues, but others will still cling to the false flag claims. In the end, it doesn't matter how far you go in the conspiracy, you can always claim the CIA/BFEE/Koch Brothers/Karl Rove are the secret people behind whatever group is responsible. It doesn't matter how outlandish that claim may seem, you can't PROVE it's not true.
