Here are five Muslim conspiracy theories believed by the populist right that are too ridiculous to be true – or are they?

If you think Muslims are behind the latest bacon cancer warning, you’ll be terrified at what else they’re up to

From US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s secret lives as Muslims, to Fox News’ revelation that there are no-go zones for non-Muslims across Europe, Muslim conspiracy theories are as weird as they are popular

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently revealed that processed meats, such as bacon and sausages, cause cancer. As many may know, eating pork is forbidden in Islam. And according to some Twitter users, this coincidence can only mean one thing: a “Radical Muslim Conspiracy”. Irrespective of the fact that Jews, Hindus, vegetarians and vegans don’t eat pork either, angry anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists took to twitter to explain Islam’s apparent role in influencing the WHO.

From US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s secret lives as Muslims, to Fox News’ revelation that there are no-go zones for non-Muslims across Europe, Muslim conspiracy theories are as weird as they are popular

Since there seems to be a great market for these theories, I thought I would throw in a few of my own. Here are five conspiracy theories that are too ridiculous to be true. Or are they?

1. Kermit the Frog has converted to Islam

The real reason behind Kermit and Miss Piggy’s break-up was the former’s embrace of Islam. Kermit, who now prefers to be referred to as Quermit Al-Furog, converted shortly before they broke up over “irreconcilable differences”. Quermit’s refusal to eat pork was the last straw for Miss Piggy.

2. Lindsay Lohan is infiltrating Hollywood on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Huge if true

Li-Lo was recently spotted holding a Koran. This comes a few years after she played a character in Mean Girls, Cady Heron, who was home-schooled in Africa – a majority Muslim continent and also the home of the Muslim Brotherhood.

3.  All hipsters are secretely terrorists.

Their furiously full beards and frighteningly flowy shirts just reek of Sharia. How are they still walking around freely? #CreepingHipsteria

4. The Vatican is actually owned and run by Muslims

Didn’t you know?

Forget what you learned in RE, have you ever visited the place? If your shoulders or knees are on show you are forced to wear a plastic cloak. Can you believe this is happening on European soil?

5.  Eating Halal meat turns you into a Muslim

No, it’s true. The way the nutrients in halal meat regroup causes the male body to grow a full beard within 24 hours, and the female body to grow a headscarf. I fell victim to this a few years ago but it’s not too late for anyone reading this. Save yourselves!
