#CognitiveDissonance The #hashtag of our time.
Here is something the public believed the moment it was mentioned:
NIXVM, A child trafficking, woman luring, anorexic encouraging, psychologically-torturing, sex-cult conducting sick human “fright experiments”, which used Hollywood actresses to lure women for sexual and violent exploitation for skin-branding membership in a sex cult which features organized blackmail utilizing DropBox, recruitment videos, child-trafficking, sex with 12 year old virgins, an actual cauterizing pen for carving into skin, mind control, an insane doctor conducting human experiments, rape, and a suicide -accepted without even questioning it.
Here is something the public refuses to believe, no matter what evidence is presented: Pizzagate. The idea that a pizza delivery website can (barely) mask a child pornography/sex ordering database patronized by the political elite with a taste for children, because this somehow seems extraordinary.
