But these people don't know that. I don't think they realize that they exist within a separate informational ecosystem, and that they're being provided an overall story that just isn't true in so many ways. Part of the story is the old notion that, if people are disagreeing with you, you're part of an army that's being attacked and persecuted (don't forget the ersatz religious angle here). They are patriots and heroes in that world.Most Americans do not support right wing terrorists in any way.
You have to hand it to the purveyors and enablers of this alternate ecosystem: They've been incredibly successful.
