Talk radio, and then Fox, and then the internet, had them primed and ready for this.
Conservative talk radio, and then Faux began their rise to prominence in the 80's when civil discourse began to erode and the Right began its march towards radicalization.........and finally its descent in to a belief system founded on lies and conspiracy theories.

Opposing Authoritarian Ideological Fundamentalism.
And your disdain for your fellow Americans is noted as well, just not as oozy as occupied.
And now, back to reality: I'm told here, pretty much every day, that I'm evil, satanic, a commie, a Marxist, a socialist, a Stalinist, a Maoist, a Nazi, and that I hate America and want to destroy it.

Okay. Since turnabout is fair play, here's what I think of YOU people.

I think that most of you are concerned, well-meaning Americans who love their country, but who have been terribly, terribly manipulated by voices you trust.

So I guess we have an asymmetrical relationship.

The old socialist "mystification of the masses" trope. How expected.

The whole "I know what's better for you because you don't" mantra of the left is their defining characteristic. THAT is what pisses people like me off, along with the hypocrisy often shown in the whole "rules for thee not for meeeee" examples we saw during COVID from people harping on restrictions then violating them.

Trump is just the end result of people getting sick and tired of the current progressive spin on us having to lower our standards of living for intangible goals.

Yes, really. You can read, so read it again. You hate Trump, you hate the people who voted for Trump. You and your fellow Leftists have spent decades now calling us every -ist and -phobe in the book. You don't care for any of our history, our institutions except for the govt, which you seem to worship.

Why should you be shocked that we're not interested, nor do we believe, in your sudden zeal to save this nation? You've spent the last two decades at least doing everything you can to rip it apart!!

Worse, many of us no longer care either. We don't care and we're looking at you all with no love left while you screech at us like 'THIS COUNTRY CAN"T BE TORN APART' and we're saying "It already had been".

For many of us, it's the last minute on the clock. It's nearly beyond redemption. You think all this talk you hear about secession is playing around? Nope

If a group of people had refused to take the polio vaccine, and they were admonished for not doing so, they'd have deserved admonition...........agreed?

Was the Polio vaccine ever mandated or else, school children excepted?

The Polio vaccine also went through a full testing process, and was based on existing vaccine technology, it was just another in a long line of vaccination products.

We also didn't shut down the world for Polio.

You hate Trump, you hate the people who voted for Trump.
You aren't going to get very far with me by telling me what I believe. I have three close friends who voted for Trump. I don't hate them. I think they made a colossal error in judgement. I have been proven to be correct.

It didn't need to be because it didn't become a political football fomented by moronic flamethrowers on right wing media..........which happily didn't exist back then.

I know you don't want to compare the covid vaccines to polio vaccines. Right?

You know just yesterday the CDC basically gave up, right? They basically said in their new rules there's no difference in quarantines, mask wearing or anything between vaxed and unvaxxed people. Well YES we have known this a long time. But your insistence that we did NOT have 'my body my choice' was just another thing pulling us apart.

Oh sweetheart. You have been more objectively wrong about the vaccines than you were ever wrong about Trump.

Trump: great economy, sealed border, low gas prices, small businesses booming

Vaccines: do not stop transmission, terrible side effects, CAUSED mutations and variations, suppresses immune systems, side effects like myocarditis (!), menstrual issues, blood clots and some we don't know about yet. The final blow: now do very little to prevent severe illness or death. So basically, they're worthless

Please do not hold up your keep judgment given the above.

It takes two to tango dippy, and the left made the vaccine a political thing far before the right did. Look at which side is still clinging to masks and mandatory vaccinations.

Your side used COVID to get rid of Trump, and you claim it's the RIGHT that made it political.

Please.

Trump faces a slew of investigations and lawsuits — and they’re heating up as he weighs White House run

As Donald Trump considers whether to make a third run for the White House — and when to announce that decision — the former president faces a raft of official investigations and civil lawsuits.

Several of those probes put Trump at risk of criminal sanctions. Others threaten his pocketbook.

What also remains to be seen is whether they will hurt or help Trump, in what many supporters expect and hope will be his candidacy in 2024.

The Republican Trump has repeatedly called the legal probes “witch hunts” by Democratic officials and allies that are designed to hobble him politically. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Here are the top legal challenges for Trump at the moment.

That a man like Trump is considered a viable candidate, in some circles, after all that has transpired is an abnormality in American politics.

Please.

They made "my body, my choice" an absolute joke. And clung to it even AFTER it was clear the vaccines did nothing to stop transmission.

How nuts did they go on these vaccines? Look at my signature, courtesy Penelope When she renounces her words and/or apologizes, I will take the signature down. But this is difficult for her.

Yes, this proves the powers that be were really after him.

We know this. Time for us to punch back. We are ready.

Which polio vaccine? The one that may have caused the AIDS pandemic? The jury's still out on that. Just because the media is on the side of Big Pharma to refute theories and stigmatize the unbelievers doesn't mean that hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin work against the communist virus, both do if given in time.

It's a natural consequence of electing a showman, not a statesman, to lead the country.
Trump was not a showman. His agendas were of a realist. It like taking cruises with most being progs who demand that the mostly Asian slaves who work on those boats get their fair share of tips. and pay. In a few decades their children will be the slaves to the Asians.
