19. Sitting Down with QAnon Conspiracy Theorists - The Jim Jefferies Show



The Republican party has long benefited from stoking such conspiracies, but now the conspiracy mongering has become party of the Republican mainstream. Before Russia would help create and publish content, but now Russia can amplify the bullshit that Trump and Republicans themselves now actively endorse.

Here is a 2 year old episode of Jim Jeffries where he sat down withe some QAnon supporters. The episode was funny because they seemed so fringe back then, but now it is the Republican mainstream. By creating an entire right wing media ecosystem that is divorced from reality in order to shield Trump supporters from negative coverage of Trump, Fox and other right wing outlets have created an ideal environment for conspiracies to proliferate.
