It's not widely understood that conspiracy researchers are the least homogeneous group on the planet. Scratch away the unifying idea that powerful people have no interest in consumers other than productivity, and conspiracy researchers disagree on everything. It's the consumers and voters of this world who think they are unique because 20 types of sliced cheese are on the supermarket shelf.
That said, from time to time an arsehole needs taking down and that arsehole is Pete Santilli. If the FBI are able to confirm that Santilli doesn't work for them in anyway shape or form I'd appreciate that but until then he's cooperating with them. Unwilling or not.
