Yes, this is about creating a mental "firewall" around these issues by creating emotional trigger words and ideas. When these trigger words or ideas come up the mind basically shuts down.

She makes the statement that these conspiracy theorist believe their conspiracies only because Alex Jones or some other source told them to (trying to expose it as an appeal to authority fallacy but actually masquerading it as a shoot the messenger fallacy). And then has the clever slight of hand to use the same appeal to authority fallacy with the whole 9/11 commission and popular science sources. Then she rolls out the mother of a victim that supports the official story in an attempt to appeal to emotion. Its really hard to watch, it'd be interesting to watch if I didn't realize that 90% of the public actually fall for this kind of (non)reasoning.
