Off the Deep End

Right Wing Radio hosts have been allowed to mouth off the most extremist views imaginable over the past thirty some odd years. Their work has created a group of people riddled with views so moronic and far fetched that even their own party is embarrased to put them on the news. In her documentary Right America: Feeling Wronged Alexandra Pelosi shows one Republican after another spouting lies about Obama...

Things like
Obama is a Socialist
Obama is a Muslim
Obama is the AntiChrist
Obama will take away your guns
Obama will abort babies right and left
and the biggest lie of all
All media is a left wing lie and everyone on the left is brainwashed by it. This despite Fox News and the literal domination of radio by Right Wing nutjobs like Rush Limbaugh.
These people, I believe, have come to make up the majority of all Republicans and that is horrifying. We have a nation filled with people who believe lies.
