In almost every one I've seen, he's become increasingly insistent upon an argument that Barack HUSSEIN* Obama is a "stealth Muslim."
Oh God, it's all coming back to me.
First, the ludicrous attacks that seem so outlandish they don't merit a response. But they keep getting repeated, until they're getting mentioned on mainstream news outlets. Which is used as "evidence", which reinforces the feedback loop, and pretty soon Newsweek is doing a cover story on Obama's Muslim Problem, or Time has a cover with Obama and Louis Farrakhan's heads in stark black and white and the text "A DREAM BETRAYED"
And you keep thinking, "No, no way, this is too stupid, how are we possibly even talking about this, have we all gone mad?"
And then SDW tells us we can't handle the truth, and Trumptman quietly snickers, and DMZ says something vehement and unintelligible in multiple font sizes.
And then the headaches start. The black, blood dimmed headaches.
