Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
I think about this all the time. This isn't Redskins/Cowboys or Maryland/Duke. This is America! We need to get away from rooting for our teams and take a look at the whole league. Most people don't do that. But the fact that people do this is just disgusting. I would say it comes more from one side than the other. Why are there people who just root for every little play that their team calls? They call the play of Russia collusion and everyone just accepts? They call the play of higher taxes? Why are none of the coaches yelling - "No! We MUST condemn the violence!" Why not? Instead they just say, "yeah, that running play on 3rd and long (It's all peaceful)." We are America. We are in this together.
