100%The "problem" lies in the fact that so-called truthers are revolutionary, but reactionary. They don't want change, they want to return to some imagined past that they believe was better... Over the years, I've come to realize that very few people into conspiracy theories want liberation for people... They just want to return to a time when their demographic had more power.
thats why "owning the libs" is more important to them than anything else.
They dont actually oppose the elites, they just oppose "progressives" meaning as you say they want a return to a mythical past where their demographic had more power and privilege.
Now since they oppose "progressives" they have to conflate progressives with the elites, so they can justify their predjudice.
In their mythology everything the elites want is a "progressive agenda", and if you oppose this, you will be '"persecuted" and censored.
IF you oppose "progressivism" you are essentially opposing the NWO in their mythology.
Again its an excuse or legitimizing of their prejudices, which under any normal circumstance would not be acceptable.
But they are cheering state sanctioned terrorism against ordinary people, because those people are people they do not like.
Big government = Bad when against their interests but Good when for their interests.
This is the essential premise of fascism, and why I say these people are all fascists. Using the power of the state to repress opposition in the name of a defending civilization and a restoration of a mythical past.
