I don't think anyone's overestimating what it takes for a disinformation campaign. I think what we've been living through right now clearly indicates it's apparently a LOT easier than we ever thought, to whip up millions of people into a frenzy of denial and hate, so much so, that when they go too far, even for the wranglers of said mob, they refuse to even listen to them. I mean when everyone, EVERYONE but the demagogue they worship, is telling them "X didn't happen" and they instantly turn against those people too, despite all factual evidence to the contrary, you clearly have a population that is dying to be led by their most base desires and urges. I think what's happened has shown how easy it is to stir up that side into a frenzy, for entirely baseless reasons, that have been debunked, and refuted by members of their OWN PARTY. But hey God King Trump says it's all a lie, so they believe it. At this point, they are sustaining their own disinformation campaign without any need for outside stimulus.True but I think you are overestimating really want it takes for a disinformation campaign like this. We haven't really had a politician just try blatant lying about everything before and trying to just while he does have a big rabid fanbase, I get the feeling a lot of them, including the people who stormed the capital didn't really understand what they were doing and that it was even a crime. We already see the turtle trying to distance the republican party from trump, if hes willing to possible stick out losing the mid terms then they can probably do away with the trump name.
