Oh yes, they're believed all right, believed by people who are both unhinged and dangerous. Like Edgar Welch, the nut bar who walked into Comet Pizza to "self-investigate" the rumor of Hillary Clinton running a child sex trafficking ring out of the place's basement. This genius had with him at least three guns and a knife, one of the guns being an assault rifle which he pointed at an employee who managed to run and call the police. He did fire off a few rounds though, because you know, baby blood drinking child sex pedophilia evil democrat child trafficking ring had to be stopped. And he wasn't the only unhinged individual to cause trouble at Comet Pizza, last year another genius walked into the place and set the curtains on fire, thankfully to no avail.sounds very paranoid and Sci Fi=ish..the mad scientist gone a mock.
Mind you .....we are living in the conspirator crazy age right now. Myths, lies, misinformation, disinformation are all fair play ......and actually BELIEVED. Like one lady indicated : " The virus is a hoax. If I get sick and die, it is in god's hands. d" A throwback to the dark ages.
Oh but there's more, how about the conspiracy that Wayfair was selling children through their website disguised as shelving units. Yeah no, seriously, no one could make this shit up. These dullards actually believed that Wayfair was doing this. You see, an algorithm gave the shelves girls names and they were priced at 10g's. Well that's all the evidence that the padded room wall bouncers needed! Those are not industrial grade shelving units, why they are children, being sold right there, on Wayfair's website! Oh the horror!
It is entertaining to watch the conspiracy theorists and what they come up with, like the whole shape shifting lizard people nonsense, I always get a chuckle out of that one. Sometimes though, it goes too far, like at Comet Pizza. And there are those who think it will go too far again, including a Republican election official out of Georgia who fears someone is going to get killed over all this election conspiracy theory garbage.
