Dont be an idiot!
/—-/ Open my mind to Fake News and lopsided propaganda? Why would I do that? I get all my left wing news from you libtards on USMB. I can’t stomach any more.
No doubt, ignorance is bliss and you can't risk any idea or opinion which confronts what your handlers have told you to believe. I get it, curiosity is too dangerous, and might cause you to think outside the box in which you've been told to reside.
/—-/ So how often to you watch Fox and listen to Rush and Sean? BTW they have CNN on at the gym and I can’t help but hear their buttsore BS.
When I was a deputy I transported prisoners to and from the coast to smaller counties on the East of the Sierras. The only radio station in the caged car I could receive was Rush Limbaugh, and listening to him and his ditto heads was nothing more than hate, fear and greed. All deadly sins broadcasts across the country.
Hannity, like Limbaugh is a college dropout, both are demagogues and charlatans. That seems to be the genre that you like to listen to, read or watch, and consider real journalism as fake news. That is what puts reality out of touch for you and others like you.
/—-/ Yes, hatred for socialist and commies who want to destroy our country. Rush and Sean have more education than your typical liberal arts graduate in women’s studies.
/——-/ I found this on Fox. When is CNN running it? Man says he was beaten in NYC for wearing MAGA hat
So gullible, indoctrinated, and willfully blind....it will suck way more to be you on your deathbed, when that brief moment of clarity dawns....best pray to Mao (or whatever god you worship) for deep senility or Alzheimer’s!
More of your beloved commie propaganda tactics to popularize the 'groupthink' above....and here spelled out below:

This Is How Propaganda Works: A Look Inside A Soviet Childhood
Dear Wry Catcher
I've been working directly with both "official elected Democratic Party leaders" AND the grassroots progressive activists with both Dems and Greens, including Green Party/Harris County members and leaders, Democratic leaders active in the community, and both Democrats Greens Liberals Progressives (all labels and variations) in the Public Radio/KPFT community, the Peace and Justice community in Houston including the factions that divided and broke off from each other in all these groups, the people in all these groups organizing protests and events around media issues, political issues, criminal justice/prison/police issues, environmental issues, anti-war, and immigration/worker/health care reforms.
So I understand there are FACTIONS within these communities and including within the factions as well.
In all these groups, the activists and leaders STILL teach dependence on party and govt.
the most INDEPENDENT activists and leaders who teach to DIY are so rare, that the few I know have either died off and nobody could replace them, or they are retiring from fighting battles on their own.
The majority of these groups preach to depend on party leaders, electing their candidates, and depending on govt where they focus on OPPOSING, eliminating, overruling and generally NOT WORKING WITH conservatives, Republicans or Trump/Bush supporters they see as the problem.
I have generally NOT FOUND the kind of political inclusion and cooperation that I believe in developing for sustainable solutions, and end up being the lone voice and advocate "going against the grain."
Wry Catcher I can name on one hand the fellow liberal/progressives willing to work with people from other parties and think in other terms besides pushing their party before any others (whether Dem or Green).
There is NO organized group of these.
A lot of the Greens and independent progressives I have met can't work with Democrats because they'll just push their own party agenda and that's it.
Many got fed up after getting kicked out and overruled over the Clinton/Sanders fallout.
Again, regardless WHICH faction these people have broken off and branched off into,
by nature of the collective organization dynamic
(A) the people IN big enough groups to get something done as a group
all go with the EXCLUSIONARY tactics of putting their party agenda FIRST
above all else and not addressing anything else
(B) the people WILLING to work inclusively and not just push party agenda
don't have the numbers to get anything done. I can work with people one on one
on this individual level, but generally can't get them to work in any larger numbers.
The minute you have to compete with any larger groups, the group politics kicks
in and it's back to just playing the same political games of majority rule and winner takes all.
So because of that, even if I can get INDIVIDUALS to think and work on an inclusive level
working with others from other parties, they mostly "give up" and default back to the same system of just relying on the major parties to push for their agenda and cut out the individuals and any solutions that work on that level; they end up just pushing for over-generalized policies that can be lobbied for collectively in large groups and lose the ability to represent true individual choice, participation and diversity. All that gets lost when you try to use group politics.
