Because your theory worked so well in the Jim Crow south.
I love when people bring up Jim Crow in these cases about the free market.. Jim Crow laws were the antithesis of freedom, they were gov't forced segregation. Ironically, put into place by the Democratic party.
Or are you just another vodka-swilling stooge doing what the Kremlin tells you?
I love that the left suddenly hates the Russians.
Eyewitness testimony also started the "hands up, don't shoot" crap that was proven to be a lie based on the autopsy but also there was conflicting eyewitness reporting. People are still using the chant to this day.
The best comparison I could make for it at the time is to the supermarket tabloids. It's not so much that it's fake news, as it was pure entertainment that happened to be taken seriously by random nut jobs we could easily ignore in our day to day lives.
That's the same reasons I like to watch some of the crazy stuff like Ancient Aliens now and then. Yeah, it's all complete bullshit, but damn they come up with some crazy/interesting theories sometimes.
Honestly it's not that far from the full backstories and stuff they come up with in Movies/TV shows at times.. like all the stuff in the Stargate TV universe matched to all the mythical gods and such.
Much like one of the replies to your last twitter link... you're going to get hit with the:
