Conservatives want to believe everything they hear on Faux News and every Did you see this conspiracy chain email they get, they want to believe the shit Republicans shovel into their heads daily. Now, beyond the endorphin rush of Deluding Themselves they are Right, it makes little sense why Conservatives allow themselves to be the dupes and rubes of the 1%.
"Not intended to be a Factual Statement..." Republican Party Motto.Bill Maher recently had a segment proving what I've written about conservatives creating an alternate reality,
You know, Republicans have created this completely fictional President. His name is Barack X, and he's an Islamo-socialist revolutionary who's coming for your guns, raising your taxes, slashing the military, apologizing to other countries, and taking his queues from Europe, or worse yet Saul Alinsky.Conservatives live in a fantasy world, an alternate reality, a pernicious bubbling cauldron of lies, propaganda, and schemes, populated by faked photos, insane liars and Michele Bachmann (although that is redundant).
And this is how politics has changed. You used to have to run against an actual candidate. But now you just recreate him inside the bubble and run against your new fictional candidate. That's how Bush won in 2004 - by running against John Kerry, a French war criminal.
Here are the Free Republic clowns proclaiming 'Ha ha! Jack Cashill's cheap photoshopped and manufactured image is final proof, the smoking gun, which proves we were right!'
Just like with the Forged Kenyan Birth Certificate anything which conforms to the Alternate Reality Right-Wingers dwell in is taken as fact while actual truth is annihilated in their mad rush to destroy Barack Obama.
Like that time Barack Obama spent $200,000,000 a day and had 200 US Navy warships escort him on a vacation to India. Well, at least that's what Michele Bachmann told Sean Hannity on Faux News!
Really why not lie? Conservative rubes aren't going to question anything, even when they know it's a lie, because they swallowed the Right-Wing Bullshit for so long for them to admit the Republican Party is a cesspool of bigots, thieves, cowards, imbeciles and liars who've used themfor decades is too hard to admit. So, they go along with the Right-Wing Liars, aiding their propagandists by conditioning themselves to believe that which is not true.
But, the Creation of the Conservative Alternate Reality wasn't for the sole purpose of making President Obama "A Ooooooonnnneeee Teeeeeeerrrrrrrrrm President!"
It was crafted so the 1% could have their Republicon Guard Dogs create a Corrupt System of Rampant Theft and call it Capitalism. “We need to defend the morality of the free enterprise system. We need to defend the morality of a system in American... That’s something we should be proud of," Paul Ryan murderous attack dog of the Plutocracy.
The Plutocracy's System requires a lot of defending. In order for the 1% to enjoy all they have stolen, it means certain facts about America's History need be voided or erased.
The Tennessee Tea Party wants to "correct" the record about Slavery and the Genocide of Native Americans because an "awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another.”
“There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee...that says, fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool me...you can't get fooled again.”NJ Governor Chris Christie declared we didn't need a Civil Rights struggle, "I think people would have been happy to have a referendum on civil rights rather than fighting and dying in the streets in the South.” Just let the Rich White Guys take care of it!
So, Slavery, Suffrage, Jim Crow, the Plight of Migrant workers, Unions, Civil Rights, the profligate gambling of Wall Street all need to go. Never happened. Read Conservapedia for the True History!
But, these false assertions are treated as worthy of an actual debate instead of being summarily dismissed as hogwash and claptrap. But, that is whom the Republicon Dogs are defending the Right of Rich White Guys the 1% to continue to rob, steal, and oppress the 99%.
