While it's easy to brush off stupid, 40+ years of destroying education has it's effects. Added in The Fairness Doctrine and Citizens United, then atleast 30 years of propaganda Fox News... Most Americans don't realize any of the things I mentioned, so they have no idea how manipulated thier views are.
Also our media in general is RW or "both sides!!", you're shown what RW donors want you to see. Look at even once respected news outlets, they can't stop shitting on Democrats. Nor is our news telling people constantly and loudly, "The President doesn't control gas prices". The *confusion* over which party is literal nazis can fall back on the perception presented by our *liberal* (anything but) Media.
Actually, what I wrote a few days ago was based on old information. Now, in the Netherlands, gas is the equivalent of $9.33/gallon, in Germany it's $7.65 / gallon, and in Hong Kong, it's really expensive: $11.35/gallon (while people pay more than a million for their own parking space). No wonder they all ride the bus or subway!
Again, last I heard, Biden was not president of any of those places.
I'd better brush up on my Dutch because gasoline around here is about $6.50.
I am old enough to remember laughing with my friends about gas ever hitting $1.
Gas in the Netherlands and Germany and many other European countries, on average, is well over $6/gallon, and last I heard, Biden isn't president there.
A lot of these people have very little idea that the world outside of their racist trash can havens even exists. Through all of their antivax rants leading up to their deaths, we can see that cause and effect is difficult for them.
Person on the right is likely an anti-vaxxer as well.
I remember when gas prices went up when dubya was in office and people were blaming him. The republicans were quick to point out that the president does not control gas prices. It’s just more of the same old repug bullshit.
