it seems like he got rewarded for telling everyone what he really thinks about controversial issues, and that coincided with an emerging or worsening mental disorder exasperated by internet attention. He has concluded that he is a genius who figures out the correct take on an issue with minimal research, and started looking into other "controversies" with his spare time to try and replicate the success of the first grift. If I had to guess what is wrong with him mentally I would say bipolar, although schizophrenia isn't off the table and can creep up slowly. Taking turpentine and pissing off his wife by burning books are both troubling developments, even from a hardcore conspiracy theorist.After reading through this thread and basically having the question answered for me, I still have to ask:
What the fuck happened to this guy?
All I remember is that he suddenly disappeared from Steven Crowder's show, and then I found his channel about a month later and couldn't believe this was the same person.
