Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 01, 2018

In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday's crash, which involved dozens of Republican lawmakers on their way to an annual retreat, the "People Are Saying" section became populated with a mix of posts discussing the news with no editorial bent, and groundless conspiracy theories, as the Daily Beast's Ben Collins noted. "Obviously, the real reason was that the capitol police were afraid this was a set up for a small arms and explosives attack upon Republican Congressmen and their families by either rabid, Commie-Lib-Dem ‘resisters,' or Muslim Jihads," one Facebook user posited. Others wondered whether Hillary Clinton was somehow behind the attack, or if it was an inside job. Worse, users who weren't logged into Facebook and searched for information on its site were shown only the "People Are Saying" section.

"It was the FBI's garbage truck."

Yeah, but which one? Democratic FBI, or Deep State FBI?

Alex Jones, an agent of the Deeper State, engineered a false-flag garbage truck event to implicate Clinton.

If only Trump had kept his word and locked her up this would have never happened.

This would be the dumbest conspiracy ever if it was real.

The believers are lucky civilization doesn't throw them to the wolves.

You didn't hear?

Not catering to these people is the reason why HRC lost the election, #7.

I read it here for months after the election.
