we've seen false messiahs before ... Shabtai Zevi, Jacob Franck ... David Koresh .... Adolf Hitler.

So far as I know, the latter two never proclaimed themselves to be the Messiah.

And the former two were both Jewish, not Christian.

False messiahs aren't rare, but I'm not aware of any (since Jesus) who have managed to gain a large number of followers.
