Perhaps I've given too many seemingly normal members of society too much credit for being so when they weren't, but the most stunning thing about this nonsense is the number of people who believe in it while not fitting the typical nutcase stereotype. This theory isn't remotely plausible in any way, shape or form whatsoever, yet large numbers of fully functioning adults actually think this is all legit. How?!?!!!?!?
100% true.

People want to feel like they’re part of a club, especially if things aren’t good at home or with their finances. Religion used to fill that void and I thought that was dangerous. This sort of political extremism on both the right and left has replaced religion for many, and somehow it’s worse.
