MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow slammed Senate Republicans on Thursday for doubling down on conspiracy theories in regards to the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty.
“It seems like Republicans and conservatives and people who voted for Mitt Romney are more susceptible than the rest of America to conspiracy theories, especially about people being out to get them,” she said. “And looking at the way the elected Republicans approach governing right now might be a clue as to why Republicans are more susceptible to conspiracies than the rest of us.”
The UN General Assembly on Tuesday approved a treaty that attempts to prevent military hardware and technology from being sold to known human rights abusers.
The treaty is being opposed by certain GOP senators because they claim it’s a plot to implement new gun control laws in the U.S.
“Our country is almost certain to end up on the same side of the issue as Iran, Syria and North Korea,” Maddow observed.
Conspiracy theories can be fun, but when they start seeping into the way one of our two political parties approaches basics of governing, they’re less fun. Maybe we should give the lizard people a shot at running things around here?
