@Rachel631:  At first I was like… hmm, most of my liberal friends are pretty anti-conspiracy. Then I realized the left in the UK is not the same as the left in the US.

I hope your vent helped. 🙂 If everything is a conspiracy, nothing is a conspiracy.

For what it’s worth, my husband and I consider ourselves to be pretty “left”, and I side with you on pretty much all of that =)

@Rachel631:  They totally proved the flag on the moon to be legit on Mythbusters…just show them the clip! They set up a flag in a vaccuum and did the same setup movements on the video, and the flag also looked like it was moving in the wind. It was pretty cool. They did an entire episode about the moon landing, and proved that everything was real.

Yes, I do believe anything they tell me on Mythbusters! 😉

I’m a liberal and I completely agree with you. There’s a difference between conservative or liberal and an extremist.

@Rachel631:  For what it’s worth, I consider myself pretty left, and I agree with your point of view on all of these points. I think your friends are super paranoid.

Yeah I’m totally left- wing here in the states, and that stuff your friends believe is just cray cray! (Although I do think Christian charity/ missionary work in developing countries has imposing its hegemony as one of its main purposes. But that’s pretty obvious.)

Please don’t call them liberal. It gives us a bad name. (although I’m more in the middle than I used to be).

You should just call them crazy.

Don’t “liberals” want more government, not less? Again, you just have some crazy friends lol.

The people you are venting to…..you can call them “left” but they just sound like sensitive, crazies to me.  It doesn’t sound leftist.

This isn’t about being left-wing, it’s about conspiracy theorists. I have relatives who are as right-wing as they come, and they believe many of these things.

@kittyface:  yes, the conspiracy people bring both sides together. Is that a good thing? haha, they can hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
