Default Whacko Websites like Infowars

Wow, I was looking up the story about Chris Kyle and Jesse Ventura and I think this is the first time I looked at what the far right reads. The story that is reported is fine but the ads for survivalists is just paranoid. Survival Seeds? Like Bill Maher said "Otherwise known as SEEDS" I didn't realize how nutty the far right really was. Or maybe I suspected but still. Wow

Pretty sure if you go down the left-wing rabbit hole far enough, you'll find Infowars subscribers there too. Some on the far-right and far-left both believe in a malevolent US govt that conducts evil plots against the people like it was a Saturday morning cartoon villain. But yea, nutters all around, and Alex Jones is their pied piper.

Thing is I don't even look at that sort of thing. I see many of the rights stories come from right wing sites like the daily caller or other sites like that. Then they go on about some left wing sites they don't like but I don't frequent those either. Guess I don't go fo fringe stuff in either direction.

I don't know truth out but if I did it was the story that came up on google. Or if you are talking about the Billo one it was a repost. When I look for news I look at Google news and sometimes Yahoo news. This forum is the only other place I frequent. I don't really know who these others are.
