    Who are the “vast group” of people who believed the pizza parlor/Hillary thing? The first (and only) time I heard of it was when the nut job went in there shooting at people.

    I’m missing something here, first of all I never heard of the Sandy Hook conspiracy, so to me that’s a conspiracy of a conspiracy and secondly the pizza parlor “conspiracy” seemed to die out rather quickly. Kind of seems to be much ado about nothing.

    I got as far as the 7:40 mark and realized too many life experience differences between myself and most people I know and the guy, Thomas Patterson, being interviewed.

    How is it scapegoating involved in disliking rampant immigration – especially now that new arrivals are told that they get free college tuition here in California? My friends who came here 25 years ago think it is so hard to live in Calif, with rents ever higher, with buying a home an impossibility, and they need to somehow save for their kid’s college – but newer immigrants get college free? And the logical outcome of this favoring of newer immigrants will indeed affect people in the workplace – won’t it be hard for the current 12 year old hispanics whose parents came a while ago to compete with the 12 year old who will get to go to college free in terms of when the two different offspring go out and look for work? One will sail through school not even having to work two jobs while attending college, and the other one might have delays in getting through college, due to needing to work.

    However, the man is quite right when he states that people who are uninformed don’t know what they don’t know – and believe me this guy doesn’t know anything at all about what the average person living in border states is dealing with. (His salary as an academic or policy maker shields him from much of what is affecting those of us on lower rungs of the economy.)

    Yeah, when you’re making a point about how highly educated misinformed people are the most dangerous, and your go-to example is how 99% of scientists who know the “truth” about climate change and the cause being human activity are the people with correct information and those people in the “other party” thinking it’s just sunspot activity or something being the dangerous misinformers…….

    Haven’t listened to this podcast yet, but there’s a preposterous story going around about a Pedophile island where a former President and member of the British Royal Family visited numerous times. This conspiracy theory shouldn’t be believed by anyone. Next, you’ll believe that the head of the FBI, CIA, etc. conspired to throw the 2016 presidential election to the Democrat.

    Circa 2006, fully one third of Democrats believed that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. Another third of Democrats merely believed that it might have been an inside job.

    And yet this “expert” cites as a “perfect example” this “right wing” conspiracy theory about a child sex ring in the pizza shop, a conspiracy theory that no one on the right ever heard of.

    Pffft – you’re going way overboard. I suppose you’re going to suggest that the Acting Attorney General volunteered to wear a wire in a cabinet meeting in order to gather evidence of the President’s instability so that the cabinet could implement removal of the President via the 25th Amendment.

    Pffft. Conspiracy theorists.
