8. Mirrors how many respond to 9/11 Truthers also
One belligerent authoritarian minded person will wade into the debate with hatred and contempt, which then prompts a score of "ME TOO!!!" haters to join in the lynching.

As to your overall point, yes, I agree completely. There has been a few times over the years where a forum/blog I'd frequent would show its true collective colors and I'd either leave or be banned for espousing liberal views. This speaks to the efficacy of thought control and the corporate media, its key message, and how it filters out through the culture and shapes the public mind...often with people being quite unwary of it ... which is an essential aspect of brainwashing: the afflicted cannot appreciate their conditioning.

Americans on average lean far more rightward/authoritarian than they do otherwise.
