Is the term "conspiracy theory" an oxymoron ?

The term "conspiracy theory" is often used to intimidate independent research on challenging the official narrative about state-sponsored conspiracy. However, the contradiction between the combination of "conspiracy" and "theory" appears as a non-scientific oxymoron to refute the evidences of government conspiracies, like the prohibition of marijuana or the emerging phenomenon of artificial terrorism. Thus, is the term "conspiracy theory" a weapon to cognitively infiltrate the public with disinformation ?

I always thought an oxymoron was a really dumb welder... :)
