    Alt-Right Brainwashing

    Caleb Cain was a college dropout looking for direction. He turned to YouTube.
    Soon, he was pulled into a far-right universe,
    watching thousands of videos filled with
    conspiracy theories, misogyny and racism.

    "I was brainwashed."


    This is a very good read and example of how the Alt-Right and the leaders of the Trump base are manipulating and misleading Conservatives with Social Media.

    Caleb Cain pulled a Glock pistol from his waistband, took out the magazine and casually tossed both onto the kitchen counter.

    "I bought it the day after I got death threats," he said.

    The threats, Mr. Cain explained, came from right-wing trolls in response to a video he had posted on YouTube a few days earlier. In the video, he told the story of how, as a liberal college dropout struggling to find his place in the world, he had gotten sucked into a vortex of far-right politics on YouTube.

    "I fell down the alt-right rabbit hole," he said in the video.

    Mr. Cain, 26, recently swore off the alt-right nearly five years after discovering it, and has become a vocal critic of the movement. He is scarred by his experience of being radicalized by what he calls a "decentralized cult" of far-right YouTube personalities, who convinced him that Western civilization was under threat from Muslim immigrants and cultural Marxists, that innate I.Q. differences explained racial disparities, and that feminism was a dangerous ideology.

    "I just kept falling deeper and deeper into this, and it appealed to me because it made me feel a sense of belonging," he said. "I was brainwashed."
    “There he goes. One of God's own prototypes.
    A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production.
    Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

    It does, but it's just different. Not that the left are a bunch of pacifists, but the right is ruthless. It's one of the discussions, Bill Maher for example is all over the Left for not fighting at the same level as the Republicans.
