    And certainly nothing to do with anyone who has expressed intelligent grievances on the subject.  This is about how dishonest commentary snowballs into a web of false assumptions that empower still more dishonest commentary until people are no longer addressing facts, but simply extrapolating from fear, innuendo, and fiction.  In some cases it's so extreme that it breeds an entire class of trolls who are actually, legitimately brainwashed, and just cannot be argued with.

    "I know that Obama did so-and-so (he didn't), so it's totally plausible that he really wants to now do thus-and-such (he doesn't), and if that turns out to not be the case, I'll interpret it not as my being wrong, but his sinister intentions being thwarted."
