I left this as a comment on the Free Speech platform Gab. It was just long enough and I liked it just well enough to preserve it here:
The right has always had a weakness in trying to attribute to agency and malice what is actually caused by incompetence.
The right sees a conspiracy unfolding with perfection; each bit of news, seemingly good or bad, is part of the master plan.
In reality, the aristocracy has been corrupt for generations and lacks both virtue and talent. They rely as much on the right’s fear that things are proceeding as planned as they do on luck and violence.
They have no great plan. They have a declining hold on power none of them earned and every new event surprises them as much as anyone else.
Their censorship is absolutely a sign of weakness. Strong aristocracies don’t censor; they don’t have to. Their election fraud is a sign of weakness; they aren’t confident. Their attempts to rig the game is a sign of weakness. Their attempt to kick people out of the economy is a sign of weakness.
Agreed, in some ways it seems the conspiracy theories are intended to avoid the more horrifying conclusion: the ship has no captain, the helmsman is dead, and we’re headed straight for the rocks at flank speed.
What I can’t get over is the sheer hamfistedness of the elites and their actions. It’s one thing that they’re all actors and nothing more. It’s another that they’re all such bad actors. Now we fake Oval Office sets and the supposed VP making space education promotion videos with child actors. You’d think with limitless budgets they could make something even remotely believable, but it’s just incompetence, stupidity, perversion, and lunacy all the way down.

Exactly. We can be at least somewhat thankful we have truly mediocre tyrants.

The fact that a very sizable percentage of the “commoners” are zoologically stupid enough to swallow this ridiculous BS signals to the Kleptoligarchy that they don’t have to put very much effort into gulliing the rubes and thus maintaining control. More horrifying and repulsive than the Kleptoligarchy and its criminal predation is the fact that a significant percentage of the population is both stupid and depraved enough to not only believe them, but enthusiastically SUPPORT them.
