Government-Funded Study Says “Conspiracy Theorists” Are Dangerous And Could Join ISIS

A government-backed study recently published in the UK has equated “conspiracy theorists” with violent terrorists, saying that belief in alternative viewpoints could be a warning sign of terrorist activity. The author of the study, Quassim Cassam, a professor of philosophy at the University of Warwick, also said that people who believe in alternative viewpoints have a potential of joining ISIS.

This week, he told The Independent: “The other explanation is that that these people are literally mad or mentally ill but I don’t really go for that theory. For example take 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Why do they hold onto their conspiracy theory despite the fact that there seems to be overwhelming evidence that it wasn’t an American government conspiracy to bring down the towers? The answer is they are overwhelmingly receptive to certain kinds of evidence for instance of website and they are overly dismissive of other types of evidence such as engineers’ reports on the towers.”

Perhaps Profesor Cassam is “mad” himself, or has not done his research, because despite his claims of evidence, an overwhelming number of architects and engineers around the world actually question the official story of 9/11 and are among millions of people worldwide who are demanding a new and independent investigation into the attacks.

Instead of actually looking into the alternative evidence that has been provided over the many years since the attacks, Cassam has instead decided to only believe the evidence that comes from “official sources”, and is now pathologizing anyone who dares to question authority and seek their own answers.

In his interview with The Independent, Cassam admitted that he knew very little about Islam, but then went on to say that conspiracy theories are a recruitment tool for ISIS terrorists, claiming that, “For example, I don’t know much about Islam but I do know that there is an absolute clear bar in Islam on suicide. So people who are told it is acceptable to be suicide bombers are ending up believing something which on the face has no foundation at all.”

In these comments the professor makes it very clear that he does not even research the topics that he is speaking and studying on, yet due to his position of authority, he feels qualified to speak on things that he knows absolutely nothing about. These comments are very telling, and show exactly why he does not understand people who subscribe to “conspiracy theories”: because we do our research, and he doesn’t.

    “conspiracy theories are a recruitment tool for ISIS terrorists”

    That defies any logic.The poor man is vergy confused.

    Why would people using their brains want to join insane fanatics, such as “ISIS”-terrorists?

    I-SRAELI
    S-ECRET
    I-INTELLIGENCE
    S-ERVICES

    The real terrorists hiding behind the covers of “ISIS/ISIL/IS”, “Al Qaeda” (for data base of Afghan muhajedin fighters ag.Russia), both trained, equipped, financed and controlled by the US and Israel (CIA, Mossad)

    Quassim Cassam. Haha. I laugh in your general direction AT you. Haha.

    Gosh they’re getting really desperate putting these kind of hit pieces in the msm.

    Haha.

    He’s a professor. Oh dear. Poor Warwick.

    I’m thinking they want to make it illegal to question 911. Like the holocaust. Of course the msm scum will go along with whatever they’re told.

    Could it be any more obvious?

    Buildings fall out of the sky. People question this. These pesky conspiracy theorists.

    CT. Created by the CIA in the 60s to discredit people who questioned the obviously bullshit JFK story.

    Apparently I am a CT. Haha. Oh dear.

    Cameron the total tool for the establishment said as much in his waffle to the UN abouy the danger that people who thought 911 was some sort of Jewish conspiracy pose. Then he threw in ISIS for good measure. What a joker.

    Haha. Cameron you are so transparent. You tool!

    Mind you look what happened to Robin Cook after he said Al Qiada was er a creation of the CIA and its friends.

    ERM didn’t Obozo declare the war on terror
    was over? Right after that bullshit in Pakistan where they raided and killed Bin Laden. What a fucking joke.

    But they don’t attack Israel…now why would that be?

    • ferryt says:

      Erm because Arab Muslims love the Jewish Israelis so much?

      /sarc

      I do pose this question to people. They pause for a second. Then say they don’t know. Most of them have never
      been to the middle east and sadly believe what the bbc et al tell them.

      Please send the very best of wishes to Chris.

    The students at the University of Warwick deserve better than such a close minded bigot – a professor of philosophy? Philosophy and free thinking is obviously one of the last things he should be attempting to teach.

    Have a live debate on mainstream TV. where both sides can freely put their side. We pick our spokes people , they choose theirs. No cutoffs, let the nation decide.
    That would scare the shit out of them. They drag the majority with them either believing or suffering cognitive dissonance, through smear campaigns, obfuscation, and out and out hit jobs.
    Put the program on after corrie on a Wednesday, we could possibly have Ken O’Keef on our side, I’m sure he’d be interested and he speaks well.
    Bring it on.

    • ian says:

      However, that won’t happen. They’d be slaughtered so to speak, and they know it. They’ve ridiculed us, marginalized us, and yet because we represent the ever so obvious truth, we’re gaining ground.
      This is the next move, trying to criminalize us in the vaguest of terms in the hope of shutting us up. Incitement to hatred, what constitutes incitement? it could be argued that strong criticism of someone was incitement. Two young Scottish lads were jailed during the Je Suis Charlie fiasco, for posting Holocaust cartoons/jokes on the internet, under the incitement laws. How’s that for hypocrisy Mrs May.
      Cameron talks us harming democracy, but it’s not true democracy that’s criticized, it’s the form of democracy where we are ruled by a handful of the super rich or their blackmailed child abusing flunkies, and every now and then, we get to vote for another flunky. The votes never matter, as it’s still the same shit.
      Marginalizing us obviously isn’t enough, and they want to shut us up completely.

    Show us the evidence you refer to then Prof. Explain who gave the order for NORAD to stand down.
    Explain the israeli manufactured signal jamming equipment found in New York and the Sandia labs 2003 report.

    the fact that there seems to be overwhelming evidence that it wasn’t an American government conspiracy to bring down the towers?

    • Chris Jones says:

      As well as the very inconvenient fact that the FBI never indicted or tried to prosecute Osama for the twin tower attack as they openly said they had no evidence linking him to the attack. This didn’t stop the US government using Osama and the other ally turned baddie Hussein as an excuse to invade the middle east of course

  9. ferryt says:

    Also in response to the article title: Non conspiracy theorists are also dangerous and may join Isis.

    In fact they’re more likely to join Isis since they are less likely aware that Isis is a false construct of the usual suspects in the west.

    Enter ISIS headquarters on the ixquick search engine and see what you get!

    ISIS Headquarters is located in the heart of Sierra Vista, Arizona just outside the gates of Ft. Huachuca, home of the United States Army Intelligence Center.

    Bear in mind that a plumber from Texas sold a pick up that ended up in ISIS hands, supposedly in Syria…now how would that happen?

    Funnily enough whilst doing admin on Chris Spivey’s site, I backtracked an ip address from a poster who was worked up about a holocaust article.
    I traced it back to USAISC, Fort Huachuca, Arizona.
    Must just be one of them there coincidences!

    Robert David Steele – a 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer

    Most terrorists are false flag terrorists or are created by our own security services.

    In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI.

    In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism.
