The bandwagon effect has long been known. So if the majority of people have an opinion, you will have a tendency to accept the opinion. Also to distract from real issues, a person can throw in there red herrings as a way to deflect.


Israel was the first to pioneer creating sock puppet accounts to go onto social media to influence public opinion, but it appears as in US intelligence agencies are also doing the same thing now. Your tax payer money hard at work.


Ofcourse if you mention sock puppets you are a conspiracy theorist.
