Fox Host Gretchen Carlson Spews An Obama/Ebola Conspiracy Theory That Would Make Sarah Palin Proud (VIDEO)

In a rant that would make Sarah Palin blush with pride, Fox host Gretchen Carlson strung together all the conservative manufactured conspiracies and scandals they’ve tried to pin to President Obama and connected them all to the Ebola virus.

Despite the fact that health and science experts have repeatedly shot down Fox fear mongering about Ebola in America over the last few days, Carlson went on her own show to push her own theory because she apparently felt that she needed to out-crazy everyone else.

During her “My Take” segment, Carlson said that the government can’t be trusted to tell the truth about Ebola because of the IRS, Obamacare, the Secret Service screw-ups, the Veterans Affairs situation, and of course, Benghazi.

With the government’s recent track record not being so hot, well, we learned we couldn’t trust the IRS after the targeting of conservative groups, the Secret Service after an armed man made his way into the White House, the VA after reports men and women who served this country died waiting to get health care. We couldn’t trust the promise that Obamacare that we could keep our doctors that we wanted. And do we trust that we know all the answers yet about Benghazi? What more and more people seem to be asking about Ebola now isn’t that they are necessarily scared about actually getting the disease, but that they’re scared the government agencies responsible with helping us if we do get sick might not be up to the task. So if Ebola becomes a bigger issue, the question still remains: will we be safe?

Here’s the video:

Once again, Fox News is trying to scare their already paranoid viewers and the rest of us into believing that Ebola is an eminent threat that’s going to kill us all and that the government is going to lie about it. And Carlson’s theory is based on hyped up incidents that Republicans have been trying to push as scandals for years.

The IRS “scandal”? An absolute outrage, according to conservatives, until it was discovered that the IRS had also targeted liberal organizations. You didn’t hear the GOP whine about that.

The Benghazi “scandal”? A tragedy that Republicans tried to turn into another 9/11. Hearing after hearing and report after report focused on Benghazi as the GOP desperately tried to turn into a scandal ahead of the 2012 Election. Of course, Republican had been slashing diplomatic security funding prior to the attack and you didn’t hear Republicans cry foul when terrorists bombed the US embassy in Beirut, killing 17 Americans including US servicemen. Or when terrorists bombed a barracks in which 240 US military personnel were killed. Both bombings occurred in 1983. The president was Ronald Reagan.

The VA scandal is a real travesty but it has been festering for decades and isn’t totally President Obama’s fault, if at all. Keep in mind that President Bush and Republicans started two wars in the Middle East that caused a massive influx of wounded veterans into the already flawed system. The GOP wasn’t prepared for war and they weren’t prepared for the aftermath either.

The Secret Service blunders aren’t President Obama’s fault either. In fact, the disarray of the agency charged with protecting the president and his family could be rooted in the 2003 decision by President Bush to combine the Secret Service into the massive Department of Homeland Security, where it has had to compete with other agencies for funding and personnel. The agency had been based out of the Treasury since 1865 and did not face nearly as much competition. It was also more independent.

The fact is, Republicans and Fox News have been trying to turn any little story into a scandal they can use to bash President Obama with. Ebola is just the newest shiny object that conservatives are latching onto. Gretchen Carlson is just the latest to spew her own even more crazy theory about the virus. In the end, the only thing we can hope for is that most Americans will trust the experts over the talking heads who have had a problem with President Obama from the day he was first elected.
