Moron "Truther" Racism

Good post here:

And this is something many of them have told me as I traveled. They had heard of the conspiracy theories and, to them, it was all so typical. Americans have been destroying their culture and f*cking with their political systems for decades… and now, when the Muslims fight back, they assume that they are so incompetent and facile that it was the Americans who had to do it for them. when I first heard someone say that to me, I was so struck by the ethnocentrism of the conspiracy theory. Again, not saying that it can’t be true, but just how it must look from their POV. We’re so self-centered. it’s always about us!
