Just within days, there was a BuzzFeed hoax, the Covington hoax, and the Smollett hoax. And it’s just this particular cluster that happened to occur within days of each other. There were a million and one last year.
It makes me feel like a total idiot to be on the side of the people who angrily, actively and self-righteously promote all these hoaxes because the ridiculous, dumb lies support their screwed up worldview.
And the part about their worldview that bugs me the most is that the people who wield all of the cultural, financial, and informational power insist, hysterically and aggressively, that they are poor, victimized underdogs.
