Help! Our Nation Is Drowning in Right Wing Lies and Propaganda

I wrote this essay before the news broke that Sean Hannity of Fox News turns out to have the same attorney as President Trump, or that Trump speaks with Sean Hannity nearly every week night. But this is exactly the kind of news we should expect in the Right Wing propagandocracy in which we live. Right Wing media own and control our government now.

I also wrote it before historian Nancy MacLean was interviewed, discussing her amazing book, which is opening people’s eyes to the Right Wing’s plan for the U.S.

These factors illustrate what it is like to live in a propagandocracy. That is, Right Wing propaganda media call the shots, deciding what kind of government we get, by persuading voters to vote against their interests. These propaganda media also influence and advise politicians like Trump, once they are in office. There is little separation between propaganda media and government.

Here is a study of Fox, another part of Right Wing propaganda media, that shows that even that one network alone may have the power to sway elections.

The question here is: What do we do to combat Right Wing propaganda? Many have tried but few have had much effect. Fact checkers and columnists type their fingers off, trying to correct all the factual errors. Some progressive TV hosts are constantly protesting the incessant Right Wing lies of their interviewees. It’s right to do that. They they have some impact, but it’s limited.

I think, when someone else' work is important, it SHOULD be copied and pasted, with respect to them, as often as possible. I think few of them would object, after all, they WERE trying to get their point across.

I HAVE to defend this because I do so much of it! ;-)

For instance: T. Jefferson wrote to Gen. Thaddeus Kosciusko (a hero of the revolution), that: "I support taxes (then tariffs), falling entirely on the wealthy." He explained: "The farmer will see his government supported, his children educated, and the face of this country made a paradise by the contributions of the rich alone, without his being called on to spend a cent of his earnings."

That was his opinion then. Today it would be called: Left wing "lies and propaganda"! I'm SURE he would appreciate my "cut and copy" of his words, in the present environment OF "right wing lies and propaganda". ;-)

He just copypasted a part ofsomeone else's essay, not bothering to even understand the details. Thus the fact that he was portraying himself as an "American" by engaging in this plaguarism, escaped his attention entirely.
