Did the History Channel fuel Aaron Rodgers’ conspiratorial brain?

“How a beloved QB, Peril! host and Celebrity danger! winner finds himself not only the recipient of misinformation, but a propagator of it? asks Dustin Rowles about Rodgers’ recent descent into vaccination and even election conspiracies. But it turns out that Rodgers has been publicly involved in plots involving aliens for many years. I listened to an Aaron Rodgers podcast appearance six years ago — in the pre-Trump days — and what sounded charming and innocuous now feels like the beginning of Rodgers’ loss,” Rowles says. “He not only talked about an encounter with aliens, but about a megalithic alien structure that blocks light from a star 1200 light years away (it was dust), and he had other thoughts on the caused the government to cover up UFO sightings, which in themselves were not so alarming. However, Rodgers – who, unsurprisingly, also confessed to being a big fan of Malcolm Gladwell – only seemed to pick up bits and pieces of information which he relayed, but confessed his ignorance of the story further. large. What is this maxim that “little knowledge is a dangerous thing”? That’s Aaron Rodgers in a nutshell. He knows just enough to be dangerous. On that same podcast, Rodgers also confessed that he’s a “huge fan” of the History Channel, which has evolved over the past 15 years into a hotbed of conspiracy theory. Rodgers particularly noticed two shows on the History Channel that he loves: America discovered and ancient aliens. I don’t know much about these two shows, specifically, except that on American Unearthed, “if Dan Brown wrote about it, chances are (host) Scott Wolter believed him and investigated it. “. During this time, ancient aliens posits, as Salon noted, that “everything from death rays to macaroni and cheese was actually invented by extraterrestrial visitors thousands of years ago and given to humans”. The Awl (RIP) even suggested in an article titled “ancient aliens is all that’s wrong with america, that ancient aliens Its approach to its subjects parallels the scientific approach of the Republicans.” As Rowles points out, “just because something is called The History Channel doesn’t mean it contains the real story.”
