Quote:
But by far the greatest delusions I heard came from voters on the right. More than a third of the Trump supporters I spoke with voiced some kind of conspiratorial thinking. “COVID could have been released by communist China to bring down our economy,” says John Poulos, loading groceries into his car outside Sendik’s grocery store in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. “COVID was manufactured,” says Maureen Bloedorn, walking into a Dollar Tree in Kenosha. She did not vote for Trump in 2016 but plans to support him in November, in part because “he sent Obama a bill for all of his vacations he took on the American dime.” This idea was popularized by a fake news story that originated on a satirical website and went viral.

On a cigarette break outside their small business in Ozaukee County, Tina Arthur and Marcella Frank told me they plan to vote for Trump again because they are deeply alarmed by “the cabal.” They’ve heard “numerous reports” that the COVID-19 tents set up in New York and California were actually for children who had been rescued from underground sex-trafficking tunnels.

Arthur and Frank explained they’re not followers of QAnon. Frank says she spends most of her free time researching child sex trafficking, while Arthur adds that she often finds this information on the Russian-owned search engine Yandex. Frank’s eyes fill with tears as she describes what she’s found: children who are being raped and tortured so that “the cabal” can “extract their blood and drink it.” She says Trump has seized the blood on the black market as part of his fight against the cabal. “I think if Biden wins, the world is over, basically,” adds Arthur. “I would honestly try to leave the country. And if that wasn’t an option, I would probably take my children and sit in the garage and turn my car on and it would be over.”
this country is so fucked; I don't even know how we can reconcile people who live in their own alternate realities.

Can't reason with crazy.

I always bring to this up with my friends who are conservative and not actually clinically crazy. I just subtly remind them that their views are in line with people like that.

usually, radicalism of any view is negative. so to categorize non-radicals with radicals to criticize the entire group can come off as unfair. doesn't apply at FTS, of course

Eh, I don't think that is an apples to apples comparison. I'm not telling my friends their views are in line with Timothy McVeigh.

I feel pretty confident that when you turn 65 you’ll have some sort of government run healthcare.

we live in such a garbage nation; easily a low second tier country.

To be fair, the 11th is Alabama, Georgia, and Florida, so I would definitely expect racist ass poll taxes to be thought fair in those states. If that was upheld in SCOTUS, we would be in a lot more trouble.
