How Aaron Rodgers Got Started as a Conspiracy Theorist

3 min read

Aaron Rodgers’ path to becoming a conspiracy theorist apparently began with his potential running mate’s uncle.

In the wake of Wednesday’s CNN report that said the Jets quarterback — whom independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is considering as his pick for vice president in the 2024 election — has previously, in private conversations, shared beliefs that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was staged, Awful Announcing published a piece Thursday recapping Rodgers’ appearance on the “Look Into It with Eddie Bravo” podcast.


It was there that Rodgers — who on Thursday denied the CNN report in a post on X, saying he is “not and have never been of the opinion that the events did not take place” — said examining the assassination of John F. Kennedy was the beginning of his skepticism.

“The last real President was the first President I studied, which was JFK,” Rodgers said on the podcast, per Awful Announcing. “And that’s what got me into questioning things because I did a sophomore project on JFK, life and death.

And when I read, back in the day in 1998 or [’99]… you read the story about Lee Harvey Oswald being the sole gunman of the president and this magic bullet theory, I remember thinking to myself in the sophomore class, ‘That’s f–king bulls–t.’ And that got me into questioning things.

“And now when you go back, and I’ve read a ton of books about JFK, about his life, he was trying to do some real s–t.

He was trying to decrease the power of the Fed and get us back on a metal standard. He was going after corruption.

He wasn’t letting the OSS, which turned into the CIA, get us into World War III with Operation Northwoods, which you can go research.

“He fired Alan Dulles. And then if you research Alan Dulles’ background and know his connection to the Bushes and how he basically went from banking to espionage to bringing Operation Paperclip, which brought the scientists, the German scientists, into the States … which turned some of them into MK Ultra.

“And again, these are not conspiracy [theories]. These are all proven things, although conspiracy is a term which gets slighted. Conspiracy theories have been right about a lot of things in the last couple of years, if you go back and look at it.”


The 40-year-old, who has previously spoken out against the COVID vaccines, addressed that and other theories on the podcast, including the possibility of immigrants gaining U.S. citizenship for joining the military, that President Joe Biden is a “puppet,” elections not being decided in one day and the Tartarian Empire.
