Why CONservatives Believe FOX News
The idea that FOX news and other right-wing media figures such as Oxycontin Limpballs are involved in brainwashing CONservative morons is a well established belief among a significant number of the progressive minded populace. But is that true?
Are CONservative morons really the unwilling victim of sophisticated brainwashing by right-wing media? Or is it an excuse to avoid talking about something else?
Let us, for a minute, think about an another explanation for the deep love of CONservatives for right-wing media. Could it be that the right-wing media is just providing a public forum and legitimacy to what CONservatives want to believe? What is so improbable about the idea that CONservatives are a bunch of subhuman scumbags who need to construct a mythology and worldview to justify their existence?
There are many examples in human history where millions of people have constructed entire mental worlds and belief systems to justify their actions. In that respect, the British justification for their theft and genocide based empire were no different from the Nazis desire to murder millions and create more living room. The cheerleaders and supporters of American capitalism were (and are) no different from their counterparts who did the same for Soviet Communism or Chinese totalitarianism.
A significant percentage of human beings prefer to live in imaginary worlds with little connection to reality or real human beings, as long as it makes them feel correct. They prefer to believe in theories and ideas which appeal to their ego rather than care about their impact on themselves or others.
Many progressives prefer to believe that right-wing media is responsible for brainwashes CONservatives because the other logical option, that CONservatives are human scum who let their ego override their own best interests, sounds rather unpleasant. But what if that is the real reason behind their behavior, actions and worldview? What if CONservatives are loathsome subhuman trash who desperately seek external validation of their belief system?
Maybe FOX news, Instapundit, Oxycontin Limpballs, Mormom Beck are just opportunists making money and careers out of using stupid and mean rubes. Remember that porn sites did not create human sexual desire, they just provide for a service for a desire that exists. Similarly, restaurants exist because people want to enjoy nice food without having to cook it. They don’t create the demand, they just service it.
Look, maybe you still want to believe that CONservatives are just nice but brainwashed people. But then again, guys rarely buy tampons for their own personal use, unlike women.
