Molotov Embraces Conspiracy Theory, Embraces Racist WND Columnist
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In a May 12 WorldNetDaily video ranting that we don't know how smart Barack Obama is because he hasn't released his report cards, Molotov Mitchell embraced another conspiracy theory: "Liberals desperately need you to believe that he's some kind of genius. That's the only way that they convince you that somehow all of this economic turmoil is somehow part of his master plan." That was accompanied by this screen image:


This is straight out of the right-wing obsession with the Cloward-Piven strategy and the belief that Obama is creating turmoil in order to keep the rubes off balance and increase his power for the upcoming dictatorship. That same obsession is shared by numerous WorldNetDaily columnists.

Mitchell then goes on to claim:

[U]nlike Obama, I can at least prove I am at least somewhat intelligent. I'm a card-carrying member of Mensa, the world's oldest and largest high-IQ society. It's only open to people who score in the 98th percentile of standardized intelligence testing, normally a monitored test like mine was. Not only am I a member, but so are fellow WorldNetDaily contributors D.J. Dolce and Vox Day. And I highly recommend their columns.

Vox Day, huh? Mitchell picked the wrong week to recommend ol' Vox, who, as we detailed, spent this week's column telling whites to kick the brown people out of their communites and " reclaim their traditional white Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture." Is that a view Mitchell "highly recommends"?

Dolce, meanwhile, is Molotov's wife, so his recommendation isn't exactly objective.

All of which just goes to show that being a member of Mensa doesn't necessarily translate into actual intelligent thoughts.
