I dislike mongering of most sorts. In my limited experience, Fox News is like many other brainwashing processes, focused to MTV graduates.
I think Fox panders to a sad, selfish part of our humanity. And, yes, it is often hateful.
When I compare it to more liberal figureheads, I find I am much more attracted to logic and compassion - both of which I find little of on the Fox infomercial.
If the current administration has made a mistake, it is in tyring to be inclusive. And I would be making the exact same mistake in their shoes, sadly.
It would be much easier to be lulled over to Republican ideas if the party were more socially inclusive - instead, I see invective and intolerance as marketing.
I just don't understand the need to denigrate the ill, the different, those that disagree. It really has come down to this for me:
Republicans have become the party of fanatical intolerance. > of course, that's not true of all individuals - but that's how it's marketed itself to me
And that's not the world I want to live in. I don't want to live in a Kingdom of the Blind, or where people have to hide their identity or thoughts. I don't want to live in a country of fear. I reject white supremacy, "defence" of marriage, any one religion as part of the state.
I embrace diversity, inclusion and compassion as my ideals.
Republicans have become the WTS of politics. [ducks behind desk]
