After the passage of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts in the 1960s, Republicans embraced racism by way of the Southern strategy. After the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade, they embraced opposition to abortion as an ongoing political strategy. Their long-standing opposition to gun control is a political strategy. And, with the creation of Fox News, they had their own propaganda medium for advancing these and other strategies.
Now, we have Donald Trump, whose supporters include some of America’s most radical racist elements. We have “God Warriors” murdering doctors for providing legal medical services to women. Anyone can buy military-grade assault weapons with which to massacre innocent people. And Fox News has so thoroughly dumbed-down their followers that they actually believe Donald Trump should be elected president!
Maybe it’s time we accept the fact that the Republican Party is a danger to America!
