What about the conspiracy theory that Hillary and Bill were running a pedophile club out of a pizza shop in Georgetown, while she was campaigning to be POTUS, no less? I think maybe the FBI is on to something here with their concern about people being duped by such things.

Need a deplorable liar in Chief to organize all those nutjobs though....

Trump trusted Putin over the FBI when it came to Russian election interference. Probably will ask Putin what to think about this too

Try explaining this to the loons that want to storm Area 51 because they believe in the conspiracy theory that aliens are being held there.

"Some People".......have susceptibility. Some have guns and stuff too.....

"each represents a failure to think critically," (funny how they themselves think they ARE thinking that way).

"People who believe in conspiracy theories are also more likely to believe in pseudoscience and paranormal phenomena, according to new research published in the journal Applied Cognitive Psychology. The findings indicate that some people appear to have a general susceptibility to believing unsubstantiated claims."
Is there anyone who doesn't believe in (some) conspiracy theories?

The Holocaust is a conspiracy theory. Do you believe in that?

Some conspiracy theories are true.

Labeling any alternate line of thinking as "domestic terrorism" will be used much the same way as "racism" and "white supremacy" are used today. Anything that deviates from the establishment narrative today is either racist or white supremacist. That is how authoritarian types control the "official" narrative. Lemmings will eat it up too.

Like the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory? Is that the kind of "domestic terrorism" they're talking about?

When were they straight arrows?

During Waco when they slaughtered babies? During Ruby Ridge when they trespassed on a man's property then killed his dog and son?
