Paul Joseph Watson reported yesterday that an episode of Family Guy, which features a failed suicide attempt of Robin Williams, finished airing just minutes before the official announcement of his suicide.

In a bizarre coincidence, a Family Guy episode featuring Robin Williams which included a failed suicide attempt aired minutes before the announcement of the actor’s death.

Update: It has come to my attention that the show was a re-run. I did not realize that because I do not watch the show. I personally think Family Guy is trash TV, but that’s just my opinion. As a commenter mentioned, this makes the thought of conspiracy pretty ludicrous. Furthermore, why the BBC? Why not the good Ole USA where it might seem to have a little more significance? However…

These are the things that conspiracy theories are made of. I reported yesterday that an IGN user accurately predicted Williams’ death on Friday.


Here is a clip from the Family Guy episode:

As I said yesterday, even a broken clock is right twice a day. But, rest assured that conspiracy theorists will capitalize on these coincidences and others. I read an article last night claiming that Williams had Ebola and was killed to cover it up. The only real basis for this theory seemed to be Robin Williams having some slight discoloration on his face while posing with a monkey.

Rash + Monkey = Must be Ebola.

What brilliant deductive powers this author possesses. And, no I am not going to link to the story. I am sure you can find it on Google.

Real world details continue to emerge and it seems that Williams ended his life by hanging himself with a belt. It is also claimed that a pocket knife was found in the vicinity and that he had superficial cuts on his wrist which would seem to suggest that hanging might have been his “plan B.”

It had already been established that Robin Williams battled depression and alcoholism.

The Daily Mail suggests that he might have had some financial problems which could have been weighing heavily on his mind.

I think most of America can relate to financial problems and though most of us are not driven to the point of no return, many otherwise good people are. Suicide is a growing problem in this country in all sectors of the population.

As for the conspiracy theories?

Until they can establish some sort of believable motive I see them as a waste. That is coming from a guy who couldn’t resist reading the Robin Williams Ebola article. What can I say? I’m human. I was entertained but not educated. These stories are worthless.

But they do serve to remind us of a man who was a wonderful entertainer and he will be sorely missed by millions.

In case you are wondering why I have written about Robin Williams’ “non-conspiracies” for the last two days, it is pretty simple. Some people make conspiracies out of absolutely everything and many of those people will read this article. Why will they read this article? Because Robin Williams suicide is a hot topic on the net and people want to read about it.

We received about 1500 visitors to the article I wrote yesterday, from search engines. That is not an insignificant amount of traffic for a site like D.C. Clothesline. I see this as an opportunity to educate or simply wake people up and hopefully gain some new readers that might share our passion.

Some might just pause for a moment and wake up to the fact that there are plenty of real conspiracies in play and focus their energy on things that matter. Wake up folks. Your government monitors nearly all of your communications, has made it “legal” for you to be detained indefinitely and established a plan for building internment centers to house you way back in 1984. These things are all documented and they are just the tip of the iceberg.

If you are one of the people I am reaching out to, just take a look around our site and you will see what I mean. This Robin Williams stuff is interesting and I never say never, but come on… Who would want to conspire to kill Robin Williams?

There are more important things in life than wild Illuminati conspiracies. The people that look at the real conspiracies every day could use your help.
