For this special episode of The Tim O’Connor Show, Tim spent a good hour asking Bobby about some of his outlandish theories on the government and some pivotal historic events in our nation’s history. To some of you, these ideas are going to seem outright kooky or dumb, but we think it’s worth giving Bobby the time of day as he’s clearly well versed on all the topics they riff on. Whether he’s questioning the severity of the recent Orlando shooting at Pulse Nightclub, or explaining the significance of the number 33, these are all ideas that at the very least leave you thinking.

IF……….? ……….BLAH, BLAH, BLAH……….?
This is what happens when you don’t pay attention in high school and then discover the internet 25 years later. My co-worker whose brother was killed in the Pulse shootings (who you insulted) is still looking for you Bobby. He wants to talk to you and show you what was left of his brothers face when he had to go identify him.

That was exactly what I thought. I adore his skateboarding but that conspiracy stuff… that happens when you feed an intelligent mind with internet “wisdom” instead of real education. And it is not even critial or open minded it is actually the opposite. Sad…
January 12, 2017 2:27 pm
Do you guys have any idea where “real education” comes from?
January 12, 2017 2:40 pm
So where does “real education” come from, r18? Infowars? Fuck off.
January 12, 2017 3:09 pm
His skateboarding is alright but he’s trying to make it so exclusive and original. Didn’t he use to make art from trash? Old bubblegum and shit? Sounds contrived as fuck.

Haven’t listen to this yet but having heard him discuss ANYTHING before and seeing this comments its going to be some ultra bias ill-informed I’m better than the status quo shit. Stop being spoon-fed wikileaks and other dumbshit and live your life.
I would also like to know if that’s Pat Duffy. Seems like more of a joke but I am a true believer and apparently a bit of a hypocrite :S
January 11, 2017 5:41 pm
Well, that was odd and kind of sad, and I sort of wish I hadn’t listened. But Tim, you handled it nicely. Thanks for bringing up Occam’s Razor and the magnitude of complicity that would be required for these alternate accounts to have occurred. Regardless, Bobby Puleo rules! For years I lived near those tiny banks on Amsterdam and 145th where he did the channel ollie, and I never could figure that shit out!

in the end it’s just useless to waste your life on conspiracy theories. if you want to make a difference change your close environment to the better. for example stop taking/supporting drugs instead of making conspiracy theories about afghanistan poppy cultivation. similar situation with the drug trade from mexico which is much closer to you. but considering we are talking about a nation where assumably around 50% think building a wall will solve that problem and then lean back and smoke a blunt…
literally every time you say “no doubt in my mind” it is the BS indicator. And the one time there was something “hey what exactly was going on in that situation” you dodge and don’t tell it. just exactly the same you accuse your government not telling you the full thing. you did exactly the same leaving space for assumptions and conspiracy theory.
every part of this interview where you tell a story about your life that evolves about skateboarding or art is funny or engaging the rest is just… nothing.
this could have been so much better. wasted opportunity.

This type of stuff always irritates me as it gives legitimate conspiracy theories a bad name, much like they discussed in the interview. He’s doing the EXACT thing he’s commenting on.
Some of it is legit, like Operation Mockingbird, but Jesus Christ, pizzagate, 911-was-an-inside-job and all that other bullshit about the number 33 (33.33 is a third of a 100? WOW) is just plain retarded, and I’ve basically retired the word “retarded” except for special circumstances. Hillary Clinton and her colleagues are energy vampires that have sex with children? Alrighty then. I dislike most politicians but get a grip, man.
The funny thing is that people like Bobby will think that people like me and others in these comments that are criticizing him are “sheeple” with “the wool pulled over our eyes”.
