How Right Wing Conspiracy Theorists Make Money

“The Rachel Maddow Show” host Rachel Maddow reported last week on how some right wing conspiracy theorists make extra money (video below).

“If you like Info Wars which is a show hosted by Alex Jones,” Maddow described the "Dating Freedom Lovers" dating site. “If you like Glenn Beck and Alex Jones who says we faked the moon landing and that 9/11 was an elaborate hoax."

"And that it was secretly the White House that bombed the Boston Marathon, Michelle Obama was in on it and there was no massacre at Sandy Hook, they were hoaxes, if you are one of those folks, a conspiracy theorist who believes in the Glenn Beck-Alex Jones view of the world, well, that doesn’t mean you don’t need love.”

Maddow also mentioned Glenn Beck's "All-American" blue jeans, which were reported on byTime magazine in October of 2012. They sell for $130 a pair.

"It is difficult to find American products that you can be profitable on and are good quality. We don’t do it in America anymore,” said Beck.

Right wing radio host Rush Limbaugh released a tea brand in response to the Tea Party in 2011, reported Maddow. "Two If By Tea" featured Rush dressed like a founding father, reported the Daily Mail.
