The passing of Justice Scalia on February 13 brought out some very strange reactions among the GOP. Most notably, GOP leaders were especially quick to politicize their hero’s death. This was surprising, but not necessarily shocking. Most of us probably expected it but were annoyed and found it crass when it actually happened.
Some of us joked that crazy right-wingers would probably try to figure out a way to blame Obama for Justice Scalia’s death…but no one actually could have predicted the insanity of that conspiracy theory as it all went down.

Make no mistake about it. Justice Scalia was murdered. Get ready America. We’re about to go to war.

@DineshDSouza In all likelihood, Justice Scalia was murdered by Obama’s agents who made it look like “natural causes”.

Justice Scalia died the same way Obama had his 2 gay lovers murdered

I hate to even wonder, but was Justice Scalia murdered? Who benefits? Obama now has a 5-4 liberal Court in a year when he plans many diktats

Honestly, you have to wonder sometimes how these people are able to stay alive considering their ignorance. Do they have people to help them cross the street?
Justice Antonin Scalia was a 79-year-old man who grew more than a little overweight as he aged. It is incredibly common for a man of his age and weight to have cardiac episodes and heart diseases.
Of course, that probably just makes entirely too much sense for these people. Facts are not exactly their strong suit.
