"Journalist Amanda Marcotte outlines how Trump was the inevitable result of American conservatism's degradation into an ideology of blind resentment. For years now, the purpose of right wing media, particularly Fox News, has not been to argue for traditional conservative ideals, such as small government or even family values, so much as to stoke bitterness and paranoia in its audience. Traditionalist white people have lost control over the culture, and they know it, and the only option they feel they have left is to rage at a broad swath of supposed enemies--journalists, activists, feminists, city dwellers, college professors--that they blame for stealing "their" country from them."--Amazon.

Another silly book by an ironclad member of the PuppetMedia [Slate , the Rolling Stone , the Daily Beast , USA Today , Talking Points Memo , and the Los Angeles Times] who pushes the approved false narrative - - never voted for any republicon in my life, but please let's keep the facts straight - - low voter turnout at the national level got Trump elected. Could it have something to do with President Obama's crushing of the national Occupy Wall Street movement nationally, when he sat down with the FBI director [was it Mueller or Comey, I have forgotten ???] and directed the police chiefs in 27 cities across the country to disperse and dismantle them the very same day!
And I seriously doubt that the Russians forced Hillary Clinton to give those speeches before Goldman Sachs, promising to shaft the American worker!?!?!
Ho hum. . . nothing of value here . . .
Their tired script has traditionally focused on pro-choice [abortion], gun control, anti-worker stuff, now has been added the red herring of Network Neutrality [as if it hasn't been effectively destroyed, heralded with the persecution and death of Aaron Swartz by the gov't] and white supremacy as the cause of everyting.
Canadian Cory Doctorow heavily censors his cite's comments, then hides them effectively removing them from search engine view, and recently quoted a Cato Institute Fellow [that's the outfit founded by the Koch brothers, which employs former members of one of the recent bloodiest regimes, the Pinochet Administration]; the local The Stranger, heavily censors its comments and bars most non-vanilla commenters, and has hidden their comments section for the same reason [their senior editor, Dan Stranger, supported the invasion of Iraq during the Bush Administration - - real progressive alternative types, huh?????].
