Lots of smart folks on these boards. We're a quotable crowd.
I've seem ATS content ripped many times over the years. Doesn't surprise me at all.

While it is also likely that this site is read by the original broadcasters of the talking points, cannot be denied, perhaps they read a post here that "hits" or "resonates" or "strikes a chord" from a useful civilian, in a manner that better conveys there message, and so adopt it...

Memes bouncing around in echo chambers.
Have you ever noticed how liberals all seem to use similar talking points? This is because the liberal sphere of information is like a big bubble that they live in and with all those same notions, ideas and such being repeated and repeated, many liberals think that they are having original thoughts, when in reality what they are thinking is is the meme.
This is true of conservative thought as well. The conservative echo chamber with everyone repeating each other on ad infinitum. ATS is just part of that echo chamber pushing conservative memes through the infosphere.
