"Will you please stop saying that word? My daughter is listening." Scottie Nell Hughes, who knew the word she was referring to was "facts".Trump surrogate and good little bundist Scottie Nell Hughes caused a bit of a furor this December when she stated,
"One thing that has been interesting this entire campaign season to watch, is that people that say facts are facts - they’re not really facts. Everybody has a way of interpreting them to be the truth or not true. There are no such things, unfortunately, as facts. So Mr Trump’s tweets, amongst a certain crowd, a large part of the population, are truth."Hughes was clearly eliding Darth Cheney who famously stated, Raygun "proved deficits don't matter". Trump's election "victory" proves facts don't matter.
This is not the first time a conservative has stated "there are no such things as facts", No less a luminary than Ronnie Raygun himself stated "facts are stupid things." And Karl Rove was sickeningly prescient when he spoke of the of the RepublicaNazi reality, "[W]hen we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities..."
Scottie's comments are just conservatism distilled down to it's basest form; pure propaganda. There are no facts to right-wingers there is only the ever evolving narrative which conforms to whatever they believe and aids them in quest for Power. The natural end-state of right-wing beliefs is a boot stamping on a human face forever,
In this quest for power, conservative neo-nazis readily believe Trump actually won the popular vote because millions of illegals voted at the behest and urging of Kenyan Marxist Usurper Barack Obama. Those are the facts.
Of course, CNN is doing their best bringing on Trump surrogates and former elected Republicans New Hampshire State Representatives and portraying them as regular everyday white people who when pushed to support their "facts" respond just google it, because anything you want to believe can be found by googling it.
A decade ago John Stauber released The Best War Ever about the RepublicaNazi propaganda efforts to dupe the American people into supporting the Iraq War. Stauber talked about incestuous amplification that the Bush/Cheney cabal began to believe their own propaganda as the war dragged on and did not conform to right-wing lies of Mission Accomplished and ended up fooling themselves.
What Stauber and most people didn’t appreciate, myself included, is the Bush/Cheney cabal didn't end up deluding themselves, they always knew they were spreading lies.
