All of these people that are posted here are or were Trump supporters. They believed in Fox News, Donald Trump and Qanon.
But they're angry now, and they're taking out their anger on everyone who is exposing the people behind 1/6. They don't like the truth, and it's going to get bad. It's going to be a very long summer.
Religion of grift.
A shift is in the wind. You guys are right. Oddly Ari Melber just nailed it on MSNBC. Weird... I mentioned over on the other side how I have noticed the Jan6 Committee is coming over very Christian-focused. The Ari Melber episode from tonight is making some important sense and offering some statistical data regarding actual Christian or more exactly Qhristian White Nationalists and GQP candidates like Ron Desantis. The "shift" is being fueled by testimony like the ultra-conservative Speaker of the Arizona House saying his Faith and belief the Constitution is of Divine origin and his Oath to same, made it so he could not break that Oath and therefore said "No" to the dRumPf Team of Seditionists/Traitors. Somehow there seems to be a Pull in the works to bring actual Christians back to a more Democratic side, away from automatically just voting Red. Here ya go ...this is *different* and relates to what we're cooking up in this thread
An example of Orange Shitgibbon as a symptom and not the cause:
““Donald Trump is disconnected from the base,” Kremer remarked. “I don’t know what has happened there. I think he’s getting bad advice from the people around him, and I think it’s unfortunate, but it’s time for those of us in the movement to get back to basics, back to our first principles.”
She added: “We were here long before President Trump came along, and we’re going to be here long afterward."”
Unlike Americans I've had to live with this guy coming into my house every day of my life.
Before television, before the internet, we had to put up with his newspapers.
Remember the old billboards that were a single newsheet that would be propped up outside a newsstand with the headlines?
Take note of those headlines. They were designed to promote fear with emotive use of language.
Trust me, the likes of Hannity and Carlson aren't the problem. You might not believe me but the real problem now is the chyrons.
They sit at the bottom of the screen and most people don't even notice.
However your subconscious self notices alright.
Next time you watch fox (tots and pears in advance) take the time to actually read them and take notice of the emotive language.
EVERYTHING is based on fear.
It is literal brainwashing!
Note that the other right wing outlets are bad but they aren't as insidious as fox.
There is a reason behind that.
EDIT: Yeehaw! Watching the news as I type. Jerry Hall has just left Rupert. His 4th failed marriage. Fuck him, I hope she gets half his money.
The gun-toting, NRA-supporting right-wing crowd like to describe themselves as being the true, brave patriots who are making America great again, but their actions speak otherwise. They are scared of people who look different from them, scared of different religions, scared of people who think differently than they do, scared of alternate lifestyles, scared of atheists, scared of Asians, scared of Hispanics, scared of blacks, scared of liberals, scared of Jews, scared of gays, scared of people who say you should wear face masks against COVID, scared of vaccinations, scared of this, scared of that, scared, scared, scared, scared, scared. If they can afford it, they live in fenced communities. They were so scared when people at the border threw stones that they cheered when His Royal Orangeness sent soldiers—armed with weapons that wouldn’t have looked out of place in Terminator II, helmeted, face-shielded, and suited up with something like six inches of Kevlar—and then they described the soldiers as “brave.”
You can see exactly this shit with the same types of idiots right here on SAV. We all know they, well most, would rather die than admit they were wrong about being duped on the pandemic. No way are they gonna be wrong about all this, especially the man that duped them all. People are coming unhinged the more they get stifled by every DEAD end that accompanies Covid. It's everyone's fault but theirs. We've done our own study with this website. We can fight every 3rd world Country on this sphere but we can't figure how to stop fascist, white, blowhard men that are insecure of everyone and everything, including color and women and especially LBGQT, and I'm a white, straight man saying this.
I'm afraid I can't agree with Nichols' humanistic optimism. The Dark Siders aren't afraid they're wrong. They don't even care if they are wrong. Truth means nothing to them. They care only about popularity and WINNING. That's why they loved Trump: a totally amoral man who is focused on winning at any cost. In short, they are afraid of LOSING.
