Trump Supporters Tell CNN Why They Think 3 Million People Voted Illegally – Find It on Facebook – YouTube

I am stunned!   Today people believe anything that fits their worldview, no matter how small their world or how outrageous the information.   It comes down to Fox news for the most part.  They spout clear lies, made up stories, and distortions, and most people can’t spend the time or energy to dispute what they hear.  It fits what they want to hear so they go with it.  They then spread it.   I thank https://justmerveilleux.wordpress.com/  for adding this video to the comments section.  I am not sure what to do about the massive education and believability gap in this country.  I have to feel that some of the hatred and fear towards those who are different has to be because of misinformation and mistaken beliefs.   But how to fix it.   Normally schools would be the place.  But schools in the U.S. have been under attack for generations from all sides.   The president elect has just add a virulent public school hater, a vouchers for religious schools supporter, plus other anti free good public education things, to be his head of the education department.  Talk about the fox guarding the chickens.  Plus the woman is very wealthy and has no use for non wealthy schools.   I still can not believe the way this election turned out, then I see stuff like this, or the skinheads who were yelling and threatening people of color and mexican heritage, and I wonder.  Is their fear and hatred caused by lack of education, or the idea that their white male privilege will not last forever.  When white males talk about the “heritage of the confederate flag” what they really mean is the idea of white males being dominant in all aspects of society and being able to lored, control, and demand things of those not men or white.  How do we correct misinformation and stupidity when mass media if so full of it.  I once had someone who would constantly send me lies and distortions about President Obama.   This person is an admitted clear racist.   I would send back corrections, web pages of proof that the information was a lie.  The person asked me to stop correcting them.  They said it did not matter if it was true, it was OK to lie as long as their side won.  As long as the target was not a white man, then everything was OK.  This person was also a self proclaimed christian that would send me bible verse and “inspirational biblical stuff” .  But they let their hate of a person of color being in the white house over whelm any decency they had.  Hugs

  1. This video sickened and terrified me. I’m at a total loss as to what to this. This mind set is very, very bad.

    • Me also Jeff. I am just so overwhelmed at all this. So many voted against their own interests, and so many voted on the hope to be able to hate and take rights away from others. I have never understood the need to take rights away. But it is strong enough from some groups to elect a twittering cheeto self centered egomaniac president. Be safe and strong, we need all of us now. Hugs
