The average Fox viewer is a 35 year old white male which explains this networks' propensity to employ mostly blond, highly attractive female eye candy to dispense it's toxic message.
|A spoonful of sugar helps the|
lies go down.
The white male Empire is in it's final death throes. These walking dinosaurs have nothing more to offer society but more of the same, and the backward, thread bare rhetoric of the good old days.
"Pick yourself up by your boot-straps" ideological bull crap
Families living in cars are portrayed by the heartless right-wing sociopaths on Fox News as a sign of not just personal failure, but of the failure of the so-called nanny state. The human wreckage left on the shores after the economic tsunami in 2008 is portrayed as the fault of those non-deserving of the American dream.
The collapse of a middle class looted and plundered by the 1%, is simplistically seen as the difference between winners and losers.Winners being those who not only have theirs-but yours as well, in a 'tough luck',' get over it,' callous, cruel one sided view.
For the larger part of human history, people were sure that the sun circled the Earth and that we are at the center of the universe. It doesn’t, and we aren’t. The conventional wisdom that the rich and businesses are our nation’s “job creators” is every bit as false.
It is unquestionably true that without entrepreneurs and investors, you can’t have a dynamic and growing capitalist economy. But it’s equally true that without consumers, you can’t have entrepreneurs and investors. And the more we have happy customers with lots of disposable income, the better our businesses will do.
That’s why our current policies are so upside down. When the American middle class defends a tax system in which the lion’s share of benefits accrues to the richest, all in the name of job creation, all that happens is that the rich get richer.
And that’s what has been happening in the U.S. for the last 30 years.
Right-wingers play blame the victim-they chant this mantra in unison on the poisonous airwaves and cable stations nationwide to the point of fanaticism. And just in case you might view financial inequity as a symptom of Americas' decline, they are quick to convince you otherwise, chanting, the 'end entitlements 'mantra where "I've got mine" has become the new National Anthem.
Worshipping the one percent has become right-wing America's new religion.
But this religion is snake oil-pitched by the evangelizing hucksters of the same one percent.
Poverty has been re-branded as a character flaw of the individual, who have become a faceless stereotype, painted as an individual who expects someone else to take care of them, which couldn't be any farther from the truth. These same right-wingers walk in lockstep mouthing talking points about "American values, and exceptional-ism, all the while being on the take.
Placing blame is the last resort for a failed ideology.
Poverty is not failure, just like famine is not the failure of the farmer. Now-a-days homeless parents fear losing their children simply because they have fallen on hard times. The solution offered by conservatives is to destroy what little social safety net there is through austerity on the 99% while maintaining the military industrial complex at any cost.
When people have nothing left to lose- they finally take action, and that action is the Occupy movement.
As long as our republican overlords continue to pursue the path of least resistance for the one percent, things will decline. Right now they are furiously working to gut what remaining safety nets there are, and all are bound by a golden pledge to ideology that says never raise taxes-ever. It's a scorched earth approach that justifies maintaining the status-quo where the rich get richer and the poor are pushed further into desperation.
The conservative mind set is as toxic as a nuclear waste dump, it is bereft of compassion, and honesty, warping Jimmy Carter's Christianity with an ugly, dark, narcissistic, self serving Christianity that worships money over people. This sick conservative vision is one of embracing endless wars, militarizing our police forces, maintaining and controlling the populous with propaganda and fear, which leads to the ultimate enslavement of our own people to benefit the corrosive practices of the one percent.
The difference between a civilized society and U.S. society is in a civilized society, a poor person is considered to be a failure of society, in the U.S. being poor is considered a failure of the person. This is today's social Darwinism at work, where a dog-eat-dog, plutocrat dystopian world is the rule of the day.
It's a pity Jesus isn't around to unleash a ton of whup-ass on these miscreants. These 'Christian in name only' panderers wouldn't give Jesus the time of day if he passed them by- because he wouldn't be wearing a thousand dollar suit.
Remember, today's republicans live inside an Orwellian reality: Up is down, left is right, and backwards is forward. Whatever they say is 180 degrees from the actual truth.
They put yesterday's republicans to shame.
You think Occupy Wall Street was some big deal?
.. just wait.
