WHAT’S BEHIND RIGHT-WING “STUPIDITY”?
It’s not so much stupidity as part of the REAGAN LEGACY that perception trumps reality and that if you want to have your own way merely create a new reality by proclamation (“MissionAccomplished”) or by controlling the information available for popular decision making (voter & vote manipulation, negative ads, Göebbels’ “BigLie”, ANTI SCIENCE, etc.) :-$
It’s about “FramingTheIssues”. Then, ALL repeatedly using, in unison, “TalkingPoints” and “Staying On Point” so that it appears to be a single coherent theme (narrative) creating the appearance of a unified “truth”.
Reagan’s legacy of “perception controls truth”:-$
(JackKemp made a TalkingPointsHandbook that fit coat pockets)
DEMOCRATS never caught up.
WHAT’S BEHIND RIGHT-WING “STUPIDITY” II
CHENEY has done his worst as Cheney-bush.
He used the election to fulfill his & Rumsfeld’s long-term goal of hedging all the important government POWERS in the EXECUTIVE branch.
They intended to secure the presidency PERPETUALLY in GOP hands. They fear MOST that it could fall into Hillary Clinton’s hands.
It’s what’s behind all the cries of “LAWLESS” OBAMA & IMPEACHMENT.
He’s usurping “THEIR” reign as “KING”.
It’s a bit like “terrorism”, you can kill terrorists, but the movement lives on…like skinhead fascism, despite bans, in Germany?
WHAT’S BEHIND RIGHT-WING “STUPIDITY”, III
RESEARCH THE “TEAM”! :-$
THE SELFENTITLED ELITES DIVERT US WITH PERSONALITY…A CHARISMATIC “LEADER”O:-)
WE TAKE THE BAIT THINKING WE’RE VOTING FOR PRESIDENT, etc.:-D
We’re actually voting for a cabinet, advisers, chief of staff, and party apparatchiks who use the one elected in order to get power NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY intended for unelected masters.
Think HerrKarlRove, CHENEY, KarenHughes, donors and all who think the country’s best interests are commiserate with their own.:-$
Look who show up in photo-ops, on the same dias, fundraiser, guests, or anywhere close by O:-)
WHAT’S BEHIND RIGHT-WING “STUPIDITY” IV
REDSTATE”think” is NOT “insane”, etc., it’s just being in touch with an alternative cultural reality 😛
It’s necessary to go back to pioneer macho & postCivilWar defeat DefiantContrarianism…( our god was supposed to be on our side; we feel betrayed, but saying so is heresy)O:-)
Imagine synthesis of a rebellious adolescent with the nonNegotiating “just say NO” toddler.
“No outsider is telling us how or what to do, not health, not education…nothing; if we suffer against our own best interests, so be it!!!”
“We’re NEVER surrendering again & get off our land!! And (while open carrying&stand your grounding) we’ll do whatever WE say our god says, dammit!!” O:-)
Just a condensation of the complex, for brevity :-*
WHAT’S BEHIND RIGHT-WING “STUPIDITY” V
WHY WOULD WE EXPECT OBAMA NOT TO BE A “VILLAIN”.
In the REPUBLICAN dictionary, “villain” stands for a kind of sour grapes where if “anybody but us” has success it may be just what WE want, but unless WE get credit and they lose, it’s not POWER for US. There’s only ONE game for a historically minority party: ZERO SUM…NO SHARING, NO COMPROMISE, NO BIPARTISAN.:-$
When WE win, the country “wins”, everything else is “ruining the country”…so, THEY hate and “want to destroy America”:'(
WHY VOTE BLUE?
It’s existential :-$
