Ha, well, I'm happy to be a "conspiracy theorist", and I'm sure Chris is happy to be one too, along with the rest of us here, because what is a "conspiracy theorist" really? Well, being a conspiracy theorist is literally a 2 step process from being mentally enslaved to conspiracy theorist. This is how it happens:
An event happens. ( 9/11 for example) and here's how you take your first step into conspiracy theory.
1) through common sense, lack of facts or information, or critical thinking, you don't believe the official story.
2) you come up with another theory about what really happened.
Simple as that, you are now an alt right, tin foil cap wearing conspiracy theorist. Welcome to the club!
As far as I'm concerned, it is a term used to suppress truth through bullying, belittling and slander.
