According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
, this conspiracy is especially popular in Georgia, which is experiencing unusual amounts of snow due to the polar vortex
Conspiracy theorists are writing on YouTube
with their videos:
You're being distracted from all fronts, you're preoccupied. They're up here signing bills, the government, to pretty much take away more of your rights and freedoms.
The blog Resistance Journals suggests this snow is actually "geo-engineering" and the US government is manipulating weather to use as a weapon against its own people. "
Ya gotta laff at some of the things these tin-foil hatters come up with.
