Wow. I’ve never had Infowars write a whole piece about one of my articles before. And then there’s another article-length post at a blog called Cannonfire that says that, impoverished, simple-minded thinker that I am, I “stipulated” that conspiracists like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck and even the woman that channeled the prophecies to Festinger’s flying saucer cult operate in good faith–that I use cognitive dissonance to excuse demagogues and charlatans rather than to understand their followers.
I’m used to commenters not reading my pieces before they trash them, but this is the first time my non-readers are writing article-length critiques of its headline.
I write for such a small audience–and only a very small percentage of the people who have an opinion about me have actually read me. It’s bizarre.
