The Politics of Fear
“Where do you go when the only people who seem to agree with you on taxes hate black people?”
— Ben Howe, conservative blogger.
“[The GOP] is essentially a party that’s driven by white grievances and by white — not racial politics, but a set of white identity politics.” — Tim Miller, Jeb Bush’s former communications director
The Republican Party used to be based on conservative principles.
But its convention focuses primarily on the fears of angry, gullible, uneducated old white male conspiracy theorists who seem to hate America in its current pluralistic mosaic and want to go back to when America was great — and blacks, women, immigrants, the LGBT community, non-Christians, and young people “knew their place.”
Pat Buchanan’s culture warriors have taken over the Republican Party.
And an authoritarian conman wants to run it, playing on people’s deepest, darkest, racist fears.
They want to jail their political opponents.
But they offer no solutions for our country.
But it’s ok because the GOP masses sure love Big Brother:
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
Trump Will Make America Great Again

Just saw you speak on Fox. You said Trump created jobs in China. Most of his buildings are here in the USA. They’re built by Americans. You sounded rather stupid by what you said and rather rude by your continually interrupting.
