When Jackasses Bray on Youtube

Sometimes good people whom I respect post youtube videos which they say “prove” things. Often outlandish things, or fringe things. Anyone can get video making software now. Anyone can learn how to frame rhetoric with it. If a cleverly made youtube video proves anything, then 9 /11 was done by Bush himself, then alien invaders are everywhere, then Jews are “Satanic”, then Obama is the antichrist and no one ever went to the moon.

People for their own weird little reasons get heavily identified with their trip and they cut and bend and take out of context and they quote “experts” who aren’t and they quote news stories that didn’t quite happen.

I refuse to take a youtube video as evidence of anything.
