I Can Never Understand How So Many People Can Believe Stuff So Obviously False

Russell Simmons joined Trevor Noah on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" on Monday to talk about "Muslims Speak Out," a project he formed to deal with Islamophobia, which he called "the worst scourge we have."
He told Noah that people misunderstand the Muslim community and that "99.99-tenths of them are not radicalized, right?" And then he added the kicker: "Probably more Christians are radicalized."
Yup.  I see headlines every day about radicalized Christians beheading people, executing them with chain saws, drowning them in cages right alongside the "Elvis lives." and "Elvis was my alien lovechild."  Nope, even those tabloid rags have limits as to what they will print.
