What in the world could get Obama supporters voting this election season? Watching Fox Cable News for one hour. That’s it; I have done it again and gratis I unfortunately add.
The word unbeknownst comes up in conversational English rarely but many southerners work with people who “unbeknownst” to their neighbors are being brainwashed by the Rightwing media. We aren’t talking about extremists or separatists; I am referring to average hardworking Americans who have been whipped into a frenzy by a constant dosage of well-crafted propaganda designed to pit Americans against Americans and drive T.V. and radio ratings. Dig this: the ultimate goal isn’t necessarily winning elections. The goal is getting gold..staying paid.
The propaganda is rooted in truth but amplified to a dangerous level. For example, we all had radical phases in college but had to back off that “knowledge and wisdom” before we went too far. Too much Public Enemy would make you slap someone and like get shot with a deer rifle. (Flava Fav is dating whom again…and Ice Cube is America’s dad.)
On the morning after the talent rich Atlanta Braves ended another season without a championship, the talent rich Democrats wonder why we can’t win when obviously helping hard-working people weather a rough economic storm. It’s because Fox Cable News has twisted voters’ minds so well. Barrack Obama, Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton are collectively the anti-Christ or something. Those people at Fox know what they are doing and they are very good at it.
If you voted for Obama/Biden, you should have someone ducttape you to a chair that is out of arms’reach from the remote control and watch the national Fox cable channel for one hour. The methods and ugliness of that channel will close the enthusiasm gap with a quickness and make you vote. If not, you are doing the president wrong by voting for him but being ghost when the heavy lifting starts; he can’t do it alone. The cats on Fox News are smart people and they know deep inside that Obama isn’t the things they are saying. To be fair, MSNBC is fast becoming a Left version of Fox so turn to CNN and toss the remote out of the window.
For the college kids, watching Fox News could be a new drinking game; take a shot every time you say “Say what” “Dam” or “Nasty.” The Tea Party type Republicans aren’t your daddy’s GOP and as freshmen members of congress they would commandeer that party like the inmates running the asylum.
