THE HATE CHRONICLES. THE KEYS TO UNDERSTANDING THE MINDSET, MOTIVATIONS, AND GOALS OF THE FAR RIGHT FANATIC. #1. (ABBREVIATED F.R.F.)
It is a mistake for Progressives to think that those who make up the Most Conservative Elements of the "NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY" ARE ALL CUT FROM THE SAME CLOTH. WHILE THEY MAY VOTE AS A BLOC,THE PRIMARY MOTIVATION DIFFERS FROM GROUP TO GROUP.
While They are usually Packaged Together, ULTRA CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS HAVE REALIZED THAT FINDING THE ONE KEY ISSUE THAT DRIVES CERTAIN GROUPS OF VOTERS TO THE POLLS, OFTEN WILL TURN THEM INTO LOYAL ALLIES, who will support an agenda full of Issues They may care little about.
It could be GUN CONTROL, SAME- SEX MARRIAGE, GOVERNMENT SPENDING, SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, IMMIGRATION LAWS, REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE etc. THE STRATEGY IS TO PUT FORTH AN UNCOMPROMISING, RIGID, AND VITRIOLIC POINT OF VIEW ON A PARTICULAR ISSUE, APPEALING TO THE BASER ELEMENTS OF HUMAN NATURE.
THE REASON: TO LEARN OF THE ONE ISSUE THAT EACH SECTION OF INDIVIDUAL VOTERS MOST IDENTIFIES WITH, AND MANIPULATE IT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.
IT'S A TACTIC THAT REQUIRES NO INTELLECTUAL EFFORT ON THE PART OF THE LISTENER. THERE IS NO NEED TO UNDERSTAND, OR EVEN CARE ABOUT THE OPPOSITIONS POINT OF VIEW. IT PLAYS ON RAW EMOTION, WITHOUT THE NEED FOR CONTEMPLATION OR REFLECTION.
THE INDIVIDUAL IS ENCOURAGED NOT TO THINK ABOUT AN INTELLECTUAL JUSTIFICATION FOR THE OPINION THEY ARE SUPPORTING, BUT TO REACT TO THE WORDS OF THE AUTHOR AND\OR SPEAKER, AND ACCEPTING THE MESSAGE AS TRUE, AND WORTHY OF SUPPORT. THIS, IN TURN, ENCOURAGES AGREEMENT WITH OTHER OPINIONS THAT ARE EXPRESSED THE SAME WAY.
THE HATE CHRONICLES. THE KEYS TO UNDERSTANDING THE MINDSET, MOTIVATIONS, AND GOALS OF THE FAR RIGHT FANATIC. #2. (ABBREVIATED F.R.F.)
What you must realize, as you listen to the latest Diatribe by Donald Trump, is that many of the things that matter the most to the average American Citizen are either Unimportant to the F.R.F., or represents something they believe should be eliminated altogether.
For example, think about the current administration. What type of Supporters does Mr. Trump surround surround himself with. In General, Concepts such as "CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS",
"THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD", "TERRORISM", and "LOGIC" ARE ARBITRARY TERMS THAT CHANGE DEFINITION, DEPENDING ON THE WHIMS, PREJUDICES, AND BIASES OF THE F.R.F., EITHER THE INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP. They bring a WHOLE NEW MEANING TO THE PHRASE "SELF CENTERED."
Donald Trump was able to build a Foundation of Support, Tenuous as it may be, because he convinced the RASCISTS, BIGOTS, MISOGYNISTS etc., to come together and HATE AS ONE GROUP. Even though he has never come close to a working majority, a SHAM ELECTION AND THE TACIT APPROVAL OF THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN PARTY has allowed this "COALITION OF HATE" TO BLOSSOM INTO A FLOWER OF EVIL.
Fortunately, many Americans are waking up to the TRUE NATURE OF DONALD TRUMP, AND THE FACT THAT HE ONLY CARES ABOUT: HIMSELF, AND THOSE WHO WILL FEED HIS ENORMOUS EGO. The National Republican Party became big Trump Fans after no one in the DEMOCRATIC PARTY QUESTIONED THE INITIAL RETURNS FROM THE 2016 ELECTION.*
See part 3.
*I guess it never occurred to anyone that DONALD TRUMP ACCUSING THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF FIXING THE ELECTION, BEFORE A SINGLE VOTE HAD BEEN CAST, MIGHT HAVE BEEN A PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE BY THOSE WHO KNEW WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN WHEN THE POLLS WERE OPEN.
