I think most of these substacks are crowded mostly by bots giving the false impression they are popular and therefore correct, even most messages are made by bots because by now the algoritms to write these messages have become very good. They compile a text out of certain key phrases like 'my (insert sister, neighbour, partner) has long covid and..' or 'Trump would have ..' or 'liberals are...'. They look real enough for mouthbreating visitors to reinforce their tunnelvision or make them angry because Biden bad, Trump good or vice versa.

The people with a functioning brain don't follow the substacks of these shills so they won't like your comment or click on your link.

That's an interesting thought. I think that, sadly, there are lots of people who follow the the shills and controlled opposition in its various shapes and forms, and support and fund the frauds.
