    How Are Religion and Flat-Earthers Connected?

    This silly game can go both ways.

    Every corner of the political spectrum has a tiny fringe of kooks. It seems to be a popular practice to take these sorts and present them as if they somehow represent the entirely of that side. It's like pointing at Will Hayden and saying "2A rights people are child rapists!" It's a dirty and dishonest tactic.

    As someone who is left-handed, I KNOW that right is wrong and left is right. Right? or is that Left? (and not left behind).

    I disagree. One political demographic has a lot of kooks, and subdivisions with large majority of kooks.

    But being left handed means that you use the right hemisphere of your brain, doesn't it (at least for motor skills)? :D

    I'm ambidextrous but in the Left Hand Path. There's something fishy about the right. :p

    On the right, you have climate change denial, creationism, and fundamentalism.

    On the left, you have homeopathy, crystal power, and quantum consciousness.

    Flat earthers are more likely to be conservative these days. I suspect it was different in the past.

    No side is without its kooks.

    I think the point he's trying to make though is that when someone from one side takes a minority view and applies it to the rest of the majority on the other side, that's intellectually dishonest. Which side is actually "more crazy" than the other side is kind of irrelevant and distracts from that point.

    Like, does it really matter who has a lower IQ between two people playing Rochambeau? You can point out who is dumber, but at the end of the day, they are both still playing a stupid game. o_O Same goes for people trying to build up a straw man for their opposition. A misrepresentation is still a misrepresentation, and is built for no other reason than for thoughtless manipulation that appeals to and exploits people's emotional attachments to their chosen "side."

    I'm left-handed. My favorite color is green, so I can assume that your and other left-handed people's favorite color is also green, right?

    Since breaking my arm, I've become competent with my left arm, but I still mostly favor and use the right. Do I get a pass? :D

    We'll have to remove your right ring finger first.

    I don't talk to demons, but dancing nekkid in the woods (or strolling nekkid on a beach) works for me.
