"Bullshit receptivity" and the flat earthers — a metaphor for....? Well, you decide.

What is the following video a metaphor for?


People who believe 9/11 was an "inside job" — because roughly 36,000 gallons (over 107 tons) of jet fuel, delivered by a speeding jet plane that crashed through a wall and then exploded in a building all at once couldn't possibly burn hot enough to melt the steel girders supporting a World Trade Center tower and bring the building down?

Donald Trump has done nothing wrong?

We are being invaded by Mexicans? 

Hillary something something something?

Decide for yourself.

I'd like to say they read a Discworld book and didn't realize it was satire. But I don't think they read.

Oh, some of them read. But they only read stuff that agrees with their preconceived notions. The anti-vaccers, for example, read tons of pseudo-scientific bullshit.

On the other hand, I might make an exception for Donald Trump.

Yours very crankily,
