  • - Well, if you weren't paranoid before this video,

  • sorry in advance.

  • So personally, I've always been a big fan

  • of conspiracy theories.

  • Mainly because I feel like

  • they get people to think critically

  • and also challenge the things that we're told

  • that we're supposed to believe.

  • When you think of conspiracy theorists,

  • you probably think of those crazy guys with the tin hats,

  • but surprisingly, there are a lot of conspiracy theories

  • out there that sounded crazy at the time

  • but were eventually proven to be true.

  • So I gathered the most famous ones to share with you guys.

  • So here they are,

  • 10 conspiracy theories that turned out to be true.

  • Number one is the fascist conspiracy.

  • In 1933, a group of wealthy businessmen

  • tried to install a fascist dictatorship

  • in the United States.

  • What's most disturbing is that the men involved

  • were heads of organizations and families

  • that still exist today,

  • including Chase Bank, GM, Goodyear, Standard Oil,

  • the Dupont family, and even Senator Prescott Bush.

  • Yeah, Prescott Bush, father of George H. Bush

  • and grandfather of George W. Bush.

  • Well, it's a good thing that they didn't succeed

  • and that the corruption of oil companies,

  • banks, and the Bush family ended there.

  • Yeah, that's sarcasm.

  • Number two is the Guy Fawkes Conspiracy.

  • You've probably seen the Guy Fawkes mask

  • from "V for Vendetta",

  • same guy.

  • In 1604, a group of Britons, including Guy Fawkes,

  • were tired of King James' rule

  • and conspired to blow up Parliament.

  • They filled the room below Parliament with explosives,

  • and they probably would have gotten away with it,

  • had one member of the conspiracy group

  • not sent a letter to a politician

  • talking about hypothetically blowing up Parliament.

  • That conspirator wasn't seriously dumb enough

  • to think that nothing would happen

  • over sending a letter like that, was he?

  • That's like me saying, hypothetically,

  • I just pissed in your Cheerios.

  • You gonna have a big old bite?

  • Exactly.

  • Number 3 is the MK-Ultra Conspiracy.

  • In the 1950s and 70s,

  • the CIA attempted a series of experiments

  • involving mind control called project MK Ultra.

  • In an attempt to try to figure out

  • how to control the minds of Communist spies,

  • they began probing and injecting psychedelic drugs

  • into unwitting citizens of the United States.

  • This resulted in people becoming sick,

  • slipping into permanent comas,

  • and even deaths.

  • Luckily, as far as anybody knows,

  • they did not succeed.

  • Or at least that's what I'm supposed to say.

  • Number four is the Tuskegee Syphilis Conspiracy.

  • Between 1932 and 1972,

  • the United States government

  • conducted an experiment called

  • "The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment".

  • They experimented using spinal taps exclusively

  • on very poor and mostly illiterate African-American males

  • without their consent.

  • This went on for 40 years before somebody

  • finally blew the whistle on it,

  • which resulted in the National Research Act,

  • which prevents barbaric experiments like this

  • from being performed.

  • Of course, instead of getting rid

  • of these mad scientists,

  • they kept them around and put them to work

  • as health advisors to the President.

  • Shoutout to Obamacare.

  • Number five is the 1919 World Series Conspiracy.

  • In 1919, eight players from the Chicago White Sox

  • threw a World Series game against the Cincinnati Reds,

  • in the most famous scandal in baseball history.

  • Interestingly, they were never charged with anything

  • since throwing a game is technically not a crime,

  • but they were banned from the league a year later

  • when it was discovered.

  • Ths is only the most famous example, though.

  • There have been literally thousands of cases

  • of players that have conspired to throw games.

  • This is the type of thing that you better

  • make sure you're getting paid really well for,

  • or at least enough to cover your medical bills

  • when the bookies come looking for you

  • to cover the bets they had to pay out.

  • Number six is the Snow White Conspiracy.

  • In the 1970s, the Church of Scientology

  • perpetrated the largest infiltration

  • of the US government in history,

  • called Operation Snow White.

  • Their goal was to destroy every document

  • that made them look bad,

  • and ultimately over 5000 Scientologists were successful

  • in wire-tapping and burglarizing 136 organizations,

  • agencies, and foreign embassies.

  • Damn, Scientology!

  • You scary!

  • First you infiltrate government, then Hollywood?

  • What's next, fast food joints?

  • Don't you be putting no placentas

  • in my chicken nuggets, man.

  • Damn.

  • Number seven in the Illuminati Conspiracy.

  • One of the most famous conspiracies

  • talked about today in popular culture

  • are the Illuminati.

  • Although thought to be a myth by some,

  • the Order of the Illuminati were

  • a very powerful organization that did, in fact, once exist.

  • Founded in 1776, the official story

  • is that they've either been disbanded or destroyed,

  • but some people believe they still exist today.

  • And not only that, but some people believe

  • that they control half of the world's wealth

  • through the Rothschild Dynasty,

  • and that they're the ones behind many major world events.

  • But I really doubt this.

  • I mean, if they really were everywhere,

  • I think we would notice.

  • Crap.

  • Number eight is the CIA Drug Running Conspiracy.

  • In the 1980s, the CIA directly aided

  • Nicaraguan drug traffickers who were selling cocaine

  • in Los Angeles, and used the money

  • to fund Nicaraguan contras.

  • Known as the "Dark Alliance", this wasn't discovered

  • until about a decade later in 1996.

  • Damn a whole decade!

  • The CIA must be pretty good

  • at keeping people quiet.

  • Speaking of the CIA,

  • I just got some inside information

  • about how they are doing things

  • that nobody knows--

  • (beep)

  • and that is happening right now!

  • Spread the word!

  • Number nine is the Operation Valkyrie Conspiracy.

  • Near the end of World War 2,

  • when it became clear that Nazi Germany

  • was in a losing fight,

  • a group of Nazi traitors conspired to assassinate Hitler.

  • Unfortunately, one conspirator decided

  • that he would do it himself,

  • and exploded a bomb in Hitler's conference room.

  • Except, surprisingly, Hitler survived

  • with only minor injuries.

  • Because of this, Operation Valkyrie never went into effect,

  • and all the conspirators were killed.

  • I mean, luckily Nazi German still lost the war,

  • but damn, people!

  • If you have a plan that's that big,

  • make sure you work together!

  • Teamwork makes the dream work!

  • And finally, number 10, the Bohemian Grove Conspiracy.

  • For years, conspiracy theorists have said

  • that the world's richest and most powerful men

  • have met once a year, in the woods

  • to worship a giant owl.

  • And, as it turns out, it's true.

  • Located in California,

  • there's an exclusive men's only club

  • called the Bohemian Club,

  • which hosts a yearly gathering

  • of the most powerful men in the world.

  • It's incredibly secretive,

  • and nobody really knows what goes on

  • during the two-to-three week gathering.

  • Did I mention that they have rituals

  • that take place in front of a shrine

  • of a giant owl.

  • Like, I get that the owl represents

  • wisdom and knowledge,

  • but couldn't they have chosen

  • a more manly mascot for an all-men's club,

  • like, I don't know, an old-time boxer,

  • or Chuck Norris, or a giant mustache?

  • Just sayin'.

  • And that's it for this time, guys.
