    I was talking about this with my husband just a couple of days ago.  It's no longer simply a point of view, subject to discussion or critical analysis.  It's a cult.  Members of the cult have a rigid belief system and their own set of facts.  Dissenters within the cult are expelled and even threatened.  Cult members seek to isolate themselves from information or points of view that conflict with their belief system while also actively recruiting new members from the general population.  Some good people that I know have been recruited and it's both baffling and sad.
