Fear

There are people who say that I was wrong for suggesting in Believe Me that “fear” may have motivated people, especially evangelicals, to pull the lever for Trump in 2016. Fear is often stoked by false information and propaganda.  Without this kind of fear-mongering, Trump has no base.  How did we allow ourselves to elect a president who consistently appeals to the darkest corners of the human mind?

  1. Well, I went to FaceBook and checked the author’s page (Shirley Vosse). Turns out she is a wingnut Trump Evangelical who watches Fox, loves Hannity, and hates Obama. Enough said!
