      CNN reporters on the scene observed one of the flyers, which said “NYU is a mob front” and “had various allegations of wrongdoings against the school.”

        Despite the balance of probability being a disgruntled mentally ill former student, an outsider pro’ly 'otta look into that.

          There’s a huge amount of press there, so that’s the place to go if you want to get the attention.

          Sorta, he lists Trump and Kushner as major players in the crypto scheme he is saying is about to destroy the economy

          Other than the fact that he attracts crazies like months to a flame, it doesn’t sound like it.

          The NYT article was updated to say his politics lean in no discernable direction, and that honestly does seem to be the case. He said Biden and Trump were working together on a fascist takeover of the US and the only solution was to tear down the government immediately.

          I don’t remember the exact name of the psychiatric condition this reminds me of, maybe schizophrenia? But I think our politics has reached a point where fringe beliefs are now so close to the mainstream that we can’t identify them as signs of mental illness, opposed to just stupidity.

          And for that, I blame Q Anon. It sounds like this man needed therapy and a psychiatrist.
