i think they're just retarded. also richard spencer claiming he destroyed skepticism is laughable, the yt skeptic community collapsed on itself when the conversation shifted away from religion and into politics more generally and it turned out that talking about politics more generally or just gamergate got more views. they also found they had political differences with one another so the community became less and less of a community, and more like just a bunch of scattered political channels with no connections either dunking on the "ess jay dubyas" or defending the "ess jay dubyas". by the end of it, again, no one gave a fuck about critiquing religion anymore, it wasn't cool and edgy or whatever, it had all been done before, it was stale, and people moved on. the "skeptic community" had fully died well before richard spencer had any sort of political clout.
