Doesn’t this describe Beck, Malkin, et al and their entire fan base?

Almost like a carbon copy. This is the money quote:

The paranoid spokesman sees the fate of conspiracy in apocalyptic terms—he traffics in the birth and death of whole worlds, whole political orders, whole systems of human values. He is always manning the barricades of civilization. He constantly lives at a turning point. Like religious millenialists he expresses the anxiety of those who are living through the last days and he is sometimes disposed to set a date fort the apocalypse.

We even have a resurgence of the end-of-times crowd to boot.
