Right Wing Propaganda Has Done Nothing But Incite Fear and Hatred of All Americans - Democratic Underground
Both the Right and the Left wing have done this very thing. Both are a plague to this nation.

Default Right Wing Propaganda Has Done Nothing But Incite Fear and Hatred of All Americans

Since the cold war ended, the Russians aren't a good target for fear and hatred.

And the right wing's corporate owners certainly don't want that fear and anger directed at China, because they love the communist workforce in that country.

No, their target for loathing is now their fellow Americans; all of them who aren't in lockstep agreement with the radical right agenda. We're even seeing the split on the right becoming more public, with Rove's attempts to stifle the teabaggers. It will be interesting to follow these developments.

He promotes collectivist claptrap ("You didn't build that!") that denies individual achievement, and champions instead a Utopian view of a society where individualism does not exist.

Karl Marx would be proud.

This isn't the first time in the World that such dangerous ideas have risen to power.
Looniest post of the day.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The level of hatred among conservatives, for what seems like all Americans, can reasonably be attributed to Republican politicians, right-wing media, and more than anything, a long-festering fear of change in a rapidly-changing America. It is true the election of Barack Obama in 2008 brought out racial animus endemic to white supremacists and bigots in the population, but it does not explain increased expressions of hate elicited from religious fanatics toward gays and women, suspicion and open hostility towards Hispanics, denying food and healthcare to people in need, and increasing calls for civil war.

The above post is a shining example of what it claims to be against.

How ironic.

Saying 'They're gonna put y'all back in chains!' in a fake black accent totally promotes love, peace and unity.
