    I wonder how much overlap there is between Holocaust deniers and other conspiracy theorists? Lizard people, ancient aliens, chemtrails, JFK, 9/11, etc. Few conspiracy theorists exist in isolation, and as such none of the individual conspiracies really matter. It's a mindset that involves perpetual mental gymnastics.

    In modern America there is a substantial amount of disingenuous arguing. For example, people who say freedom, but only mean freedom for certain groups being the most. NeoNazis denying the Holocaust fits that mold quite well.

    I think there may be some, because once you make a break like that with established fact I think it's easier to believe other nonsense conspiracies.

    But there is a strain of Holocaust denialism which seeks to argue that the numbers were lower or things weren't as bad as stated, which actually seems to me more specifically neo-Nazi or antisemitic in origin. I don't know how you'd go from "UFOs exist and the government covered it up" to "the Holocaust wasn't as bad as claimed" rather than "the Holocaust was faked too", if you see what I mean.

    Also dig a bit deeper and often there is an antisemitic element to a bunch of other conspiracy theories.

    The bubble boy doesn't understand much of the outside world. He's never seen it. Nor does he want to see it.

    But he will ask questions for some reason.
