Default Why some People are so full of Hate!!??

I viewed this video in it's entirety and hope you will also before you make a reply.

If you sit around and watch this kind of "documentary" for only minutes a day, would you not soon see conspiracies everywhere, would you not hate every other race of people on the face of the Earth?

Why is it suggested that only certain children are the subject of this "attack"


Is this video informative or more indoctrination to hate other people?

This thing is purely racial from front to the end. It is sickening to see things like this so who would watch it clear through as you and I did?

Just to play Devil's Advocate a little bit: What is your definition of "hate"? One could say that this forum is full of "hate" every day.

Because hate and fear are the two most primitive emotions and the easiest ones to manipulate.

In many cases, these people are incapable of anaysis or self-examination. They tune into "news sources" that reinforce their fears and prejudices. They're fed a steady diet of fear and distortions. They see their fellow Americans as "the enemy" now that the big bad Soviet bear is dead. And the broadcasters cash in on that need for fear and hatred.

Did you actually just write "hate and fear are the two most primitive emotions" followed by "these people are incapable of analysis or self-examination"?

I'm turning you into the irony police.

Sorry you didn't understand.

I'll try to type more slowly and use smaller words.

Caution: some big words follow...


A study at University College London in the UK has found that conservatives' brains have larger amygdalas than the brains of liberals. Amygdalas are responsible for fear and other "primitive" emotions. At the same time, conservatives' brains were also found to have a smaller anterior cingulate -- the part of the brain responsible for courage and optimism.
If the study is confirmed, it could give us the first medical explanation for why conservatives tend to be more receptive to threats of terrorism, for example, than liberals. And it may help to explain why conservatives like to plan based on the worst-case scenario, while liberals tend towards rosier outlooks.
"It is very significant because it does suggest there is something about political attitudes that are either encoded in our brain structure through our experience or that our brain structure in some way determines or results in our political attitudes," Geraint Rees, the neurologist who carried out the study, told the media.

http://www.alternet.org/story/149362..._their_brains/

That study would explain two things:

1. Why conservatives tend to lap up the fear-mongering spewed by Limbaugh, Beck, etc.

2. The number of chickenhawks within their ranks. A small sampling: Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, Boehner, McConnell, DeMint, Gingrich, Levin, Savage, Nugent, Romney, Pawlenty, Jindal, et al. I've always found it interesting that those who keep saying the loudest how much they love America seem to gravitate towards public positions that pay well but involve no military service. While at the same time, labelling anyone who doesn't share their viewpoint as "unpatriotic."
