12 Million Americans Believe Lizard People Run Our Country Reply

I would argue that believers in the lizard people, UFOs, and Roswell are closer to the “truth” than many of the dumbasses who get passed off as “intellectuals,” left and right. The lizard people conspiracy theory is merely a low-brow, crass, lumpenproletarian caricature of something that is rooted in fact, i.e. the existence of a national and international power elite. And the UFO/Roswell conspiracies are merely exaggerated versions of a basic insight, that the state lies, has its own nefarious agenda, and cannot be trusted. It is far better to be a believer in lizard people than to be someone who thinks Hillary Clinton or the (fortunately) late John McCain would be an ideal head of state.

About 90 million Americans believe aliens exist. Some 66 million of us think aliens landed at Roswell in 1948. These are the things you learn when there’s a lull in political news and pollsters get to ask whatever questions they want.
