Warning: "Tenthers" Abound

Along with "truthers" and "birthers" the newest fringe group to surface is the "tenthers."  This extremist group is easily associated with those who think the US Government arranged or allowed the murder of 3,000 Americans and those who believe Obama is not a natural-born citizen.

In fact, the only group that might be crazier than the "tenthers" might be the lunar landing hoax conspiracy theorists.

What is the conspiracy theory proposed by the "tenthers," you ask?

They are under the impression that an elite group of white men met in secret and put together secret government documents that limited the power of the federal government. They also believe this same group was instrumental in the development of state governments which hold the power not given to the federal government in these secret documents. Some of the conspiracy-minded websites even claim to have images of these secret documents along with the signatures of those white male elites on the actual documents.

The tenthers claim there is a "tenth amendment" in that document up there, but I don't see how anyone can read that faded old document. It could say anything! But those crazy tenthers believe in this stuff.

How sad.

Want to know more about "tentherism?" American Prospect has all the information any good supporter of the motherland would ever need.
