Conspiracies and the Far-Right

Thu, Sep 24, 2020

Rather like Covid-19, another virus has emerged recently which seeks to infect the population, not with a deadly disease but with a warped ideology and vacuous arguments that defy all logic and rationality.

Insider is of course referring to the emergence of far right political groups and conspiracy theorists who, in recent times, have emerged in Ireland, and elsewhere. Most recently we have seen some of these groups crawling out from behind their keyboards to hold anti-mask rallies and to perpetuate all manner of bizarre and ill informed conspiracy theories, from claims Covid-19 is a biological weapon released by government's via 5G to cull the world population, to others which claim that the virus does not really exist at all and that it is being used to erode our rights, and literally everything in between.
