“I was just going on and on one day in a coffee shop when it hit me. My conspiracy theory was all bull, not just one bit but all of it,” Mr Blanco revealed.
Amid a lot of soul searching, one theory after another was discounted by Mr. Blanco, until he became enraged prompting him to even throw away his tin-foil hat into a dumpster.
The prominent conspiracy theorist even has his own local radio talk show with tens of listeners.
“I had to go on there and confess. I was a conscientious conspiracy theorist and I was hanging my boots up. It’s okay to question, but my theory was so stupid that even other conspiracy theorists and researchers would shun me,” a distraught Blanco told the local Huntsville Echo.
So what was the theory?
“I, I believed in Hope, I believed in Change. I used to say ‘Yes, We Can!’ and I, I’m so ashamed of myself. I gotta live with myself for voting for THAT theory and believing everything about it. I can’t even mention the name of the person who I stole the original conspiracy theory from. I voted twice. Oh the disgrace.”
After becoming disillusioned by his own false conspiracy theory, Mr. Blanco decided to give reality a go.
