Yesterday I noticed a poll where it appears that the favorite television shows of the far right are the Barret Jackson Auction, Fox News, The Apprentice, and Dooms Day Preppers. (Not necessarily in that order.) I have been, and probably always will be, totally confused by the far right and their ability to just choose what they wish is fact, without any basis in reality. The more I thought about this poll the more confused I became on just how a marriage in the belief systems of those that watch Trump, million dollar car auctions, fake news, and those that hide underground with shot guns and watch fake news was formed.
Here is my explanation and you may feel free to add yours. The rich have figured out that if they just say they have a belief in God and your right to keep your guns then the poor and fearful in the party can relate to them. The rich on the right then solidify this comittment from the fearful on the right by keeping fear alive by telling them their way of life is being threatened and any movement in our society into the future will mean disaster. They tell them that the left is the enemy comitted to taking away their rights, give the country to foriegn powers, telling them their belief systems are being threatened, and that they are the only ones standing up for them and protecting them from the left.
In reality, the rich on the right are using these fears to fill their pockets, garner votes, and in every other way using the fearful on the right for their own gain. They find this group as an easy target and exploit them daily. The rich on the right are not concerned about religion except in how it can be exploited, they are the ones living in gated communities protected from those with guns, gain from military spending, own the companies that produce the dooms day bunkers, and do everything imaginable to exploit this group without providing them anything in return. In fact their policies are the ones that would bring about the financial collapse that so many fear, their policies create poverty and promote social hatred, their policies assure future wars that could destroy the planet, and their policies destroy the environment all of which are designed to perpetuate the fears of the far right and assure their profits.
At the same time they sit in the corporate board rooms and rake in the dollars while laughing at those they exploit. You have to wonder how the right that are not rich do not see what is in plain sight. Well the poll said the right gets most all their news from Fox. I guess that says it all. The far right, expecially those that are not rich need to wake up and smell the gun powder. They are just being used. Living in denial will just assure they will always live in fear, continue to feed their keepers, and be pawns in this game without any way out.
I wonder how the left has gotten to the point that they are feared more than those on the right and what they should be doing to expose the real truth to this group. How has the left lost many of the poor in this nation to fear?
