Watching Democrats believe their own fake news gives me an Uncanny Valley kind of experience. They resemble regular humans, but their gullibility makes them seem slightly "off" in a way that disturbs me. Anyone else feel that? It's a serious question.
I first noticed this phenomena with the Fine People Hoax, then the Russian Collusion Hoax, and now the Ingesting Disinfectants Hoax. Hypnotists recognize the look when a subject's critical thinking skills are temporarily switched off. This looks similar.
To be fair, I assume lots of Democrats have the Uncanny Valley feeling about Conservatives, albeit on different topics. The phenomenon only gets triggered by the extra-fake news that is screamingly untrue, not the everyday biased stuff.
