Anytime there is some deadly event, disease, or other catastrophe run amok in the world, there will be some fool out there telling anyone who is stuck in line near him that there is a cover-up going on about the thing.

Whether it is 9/11 (“Bush blew up the towers!”), poisons in airplane condensation trails (“chemtrails”), water fluoridation, or giant weather-control machines (HAARP), these folks know more than you and are eager to tell you about it.

So it just figures that, with nearly 4500 people dead from Ebola, mostly in West Africa, someone would start pushing an “explanation” that suits their particular paranoias.

Enter Chris Brown. Yes, this is the same Chris Brown who beat the snot out of Rihanna. Chris Brown took to his Twitter account a few days back and posted this bit of intelligentsia-baiting brilliance:

"I don't know ... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. Shit is getting crazy bruh."

As of this writing, over 40,000 people have retweeted this. Some might think that this indicates widespread agreement with Brown’s belief. And there is certainly some of that.

But the blowback from his tweet was swift.

But Brown was undeterred.

Chris Brown has 13.7 million followers. What he tweeted out to all those people is something that is coming to be known as “Ebola truther” material. There is no standardized formula or belief, because these people have no standard or unit structure. It’s a hodge-podge of ideas, some that mention the “Illuminati” or some other shadowy group that wants to control and own the world and would prefer that poor, black, and other such undesirable folk not be around to breathe their air.

Here is one of Brown’s more recent tweets.

Yep. Some of ‘em sure can take a punch.
