How Right Wing Propaganda Harms Everyone
Today I witnessed one of the most evil and dishonest right wing propaganda efforts I’ve ever seen, and that’s really saying something. The false story spread from Jim Hoft to Drudge Report to Fox News within hours, and now a Texas community has been robbed of a huge economic benefit (estimated at $50 million a year by Hidalgo County Commissioner A.C. Cuellar), and countless children have been abandoned and left without help, because of the sick, twisted right wing crusade against migrant children desperately trying to escape violence and poverty.
You’ll never see a more disgusting example of how right wing propaganda spreads, and harms people and communities.
I almost wish I hadn’t fled screaming from the right years ago, so I could do it again now.
