James Tracy will stay fired. The conspiratorial communication professor lost his First Amendment case this afternoon.
When I wrote about Tracy last week, one commenter accused me of “bullying” and another called me a fool, concluding, “Tracy will win.”
Maybe he did.
Even though a federal jury has ruled against him, just imagine the conspiracy theories Tracy can spin now. His greatest hits are still available on his blog, called Memory Hole. He’s written about “the roles played by LBJ and the Secret Service in the assassination” of JFK, how “dangerous microwave-emitting devices” are being installed in schools to poison our children, and “there is considerable justified alarm concerning the dangers vaccines pose to human health.”
I can’t imagine any other university hiring Tracy, but freed from the shackles of the Deep State, he can now teach his awful “Culture of Conspiracy” class online and without interference.
I propose he revise his syllabus thusly. Everything in quotes is directly from his blog. I didn’t correct his poor spelling, grammar, punctuation, or writing…
WEEK 1: 9-11 was a Jewish plot, not a terrorist one
“It is now known that Dick Cheney ‘took over’ the 9/11 plot hatched by the Zionist government of Israel. … The World Trade Center Twin Towers were likely brought down–through controlled demolition.”
WEEK 2: The United States is run by a “shadow government”
“The system is rigged. … Because the US executive and legislature have been largely controlled by transnational interests since the Woodrow Wilson administration that’s a gross understatement. Recently-released FBI documents now actually reference a ‘shadow government’ overseeing affairs at the US State Department.”
WEEK 3: Hillary Clinton campaigned with a stunt double
“We even have a candidate for the office of the President of the United States resorting to the use of body doubles to keep the public from learning of the dire state of her health, which is copiously documented here. This is not theory: this is fact! The people are being played with the complicity of the mainstream media.”
WEEK 4: The military creates hurricanes
“Hurricane Matthew is presented by government officials and major media as the reason to advise people leave their homes. … Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.”
WEEK 5: “And nobody died in Boston, either”
“A detailed investigation of the Boston marathon bombing that reveals that it, too, was another drill with Hollywood special effects, where none of the purported victims died and the two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were framed for a crime they did not commit.”
WEEK 6: Nazis didn’t march in Charlotte – liberals did
“Most of the alleged ‘protesters’ are in fact carpet bagger types, probably sponsored by George Soros Open Society foundations … If Soros or other financial elites wish to fund non-profits that in turn hire mercenary rioters to incite racial discontent that’s one thing. But the fact that news media present the event as spontaneous and indigenous to the area is quite another.”
WEEK 7: Justice Scalia was murdered
“The corporate media have perhaps purposely failed to scrutinize the many anomalies surrounding the death of senior Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, calling commentators who’ve questioned the especially unusual circumstances surrounding his death ‘conspiracy theorists.’ Yet there is no disputing the fact that several international and domestic political economic agendas will be hastened by Scalia’s removal from the highest court in the land.”
WEEK 8: Democrats wanted martial law to stop Trump
“U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is coordinating with Democratic activists to so disrupt the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions that martial law will be declared.”
WEEK 9: Wi-fi can kill you
“Electromagnetic pollution is one of the greatest threats to human health today. Over the past several years this public health menace has only intensified with the rollout of ‘smart meters’ that replace standard analog meters on residences and businesses throughout the nation and world.”
WEEK 10: The Super Bowl proves the Sandy Hook massacre never happened
“Several of the first graders slain in Newtown Connecticut on December 14, 2012 are not only alive and well, but rather famously performing ‘America the Beautiful’ at Super Bowl XLVII.”
…and yes, all of this will be on the final exam.
