Default Are tRUmp supporters ignorant, stupid, or just liars?

Can anyone help me understand why members of the tRUmp cult are so far gone?

Are they really just that ignorant because of the constant barrage of right wing propaganda from media like Fox news?

Or is it more than that, do they actually fully understand how corrupt and racist this president and his administration are but they choose to ignore it because they either support the racism or they support what they think they will gain; judge seats?

Or are they all just so far invested in tRUmp and his crime family that nothing they do could would ever make them admit that they got conned so instead they just lie about everything?


Maybe its a mix of all three. What do you guys think?

So I'm gonna go with Option A for you. Ignorant and far too brainwashed by right wing lies and propaganda. But that's only because I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt.

I'm thinking he must have been in jail, unable to post anything on the internet . . .

For 6+ months he's been packed in with fellow angry democrats who all hate Trump. It must have made him feel so unimportant, to be just another faceless voice of hate in a warehouse of angry liberals . . . When one needs to be the most obnoxious, anti-social douche in the room and he's just been lost in the horde, there's a lot of built-up hostility.

Well, he's back out in society with a new Lifeline phone and come back here with an even stronger urge to be detestable.

Back on the ignore list he goes!

I'm going with option three for you, unless you're as old as Franc is, you don't have the benefit of the doubt of falling back on being ignorant. You've been constantly shown how wrong you are about everything yet continue to lie about things. You are far too invested in the tRUmp cult at this point, so the dishonesty and hypocrisy is what you have chosen instead of facing the reality that you have been conned and manipulated.

Please don't put anyone on ignore. It's an insidious contrivance that does nothing but propagate the ignorance and close mindedness so popular on the Left.

I would agree with you, except for one (rather important) point:

Some people are just trolls--they contribute nothing to the conversation, but just wish to disrupt it; and they do not merely disagree with others, but show utter contempt for those who do not see the world as they do.

These people, I believe, deserve to be ignored.

Absofreakinposolutely!

I know his entire platform, it is one of contempt that runs so deep that no reasoned discussion can ever happen. All he can offer is derision and vitriol, over and over and over again without a breath between spittle-spewing rants.

Ignoring him isn't diminishing my ability to hear oppositional voices; it's making my experience here civilized and enjoyable.

If I just wanted to be screamed at by insane lefties, I could just go down to center city Philly and listen to the deranged Black Liberation loonies protesting outside of city hall to free Mumia.

Maybe its a mix of all three. What do you guys think?
I have pondered that for a good while now.
I think it is a combination of things.
number one the repeal of the fairness doctrine in broadcasting has allowed lying on air to the American people w/o rebutt or recourse. That along with the repeal of a lot of laws covering mergers and/or those laws that do exist being ignored.
Then there's the internet. While we refuse to make rules for television and radio, we have a newer better way to falsely advertise and little time to check lies because of the multitude.

There have been concerted efforts by people like Breitbart and Bannon, Limbaugh and others who get big bucks from some interested parties for spewing garbage, mayhem, and conspiracy theories.
Some of these have now been around long enough (Limbaugh the 80s), that many, many people think these lies are historic facts.
So Trump saw that and said: hoorah there are still gullible folk left in America! I can make a bundle!
And that is exactly what is happening.
