Poor Brainwashed Right-Wingers

When you listen to hate, you spew bile.

In following some of the statements and online posts that members of the far-right are putting together these days, it would be comical if it weren't so sad to watch. All they have is fearmongering as Biden's policies, with an argument about the border being the only outlier, seem to be having positive benefits for the country.

Not sure what I mean, let's take a quick look at some examples.

Apparently, According to the Right-Wing, Joe Biden is Coming for Your Hamburgers

The right tried to convince their followers that Joe Biden's policies were going to be a threat to meat-eating red-blooded Americans. The story was pretty laughable, but that didn't stop it from spreading very quickly across right-wing media.

That Kevin McCarthy, the House's minority leader, would immediately go on to Hannity's show after Biden's speech to Congress and continue to make the claim that Biden wants to limit red meat consumption really shows just how far the entirety of the party has gone in peddling lies and misinformation.

This was clearly debunked. Fox News even debunked themselves. Yet, here is one of the major party 'leaders' clinging to the lie well after it was proven to be just that.

That really tells you all you need to know about right-wing values today. Clearly, honesty is not one of those values.

Joe Biden is Attacking the Middle Class

At the site that hosts this article, they have a forum. In that forum, there are far-right posters claiming that Biden's empowerment of the IRS to go after the wealthy who have failed to pay their taxes is somehow an attack on the middle class.

Apparently, the far-right thinks that the middle class has hired an army of powerful accountants to hide all their vast sums of money. I'm sure they have that kind of money just laying around in the middle class.

The Far-Right Doesn't Think Biden is Popular

In the same forum thread, one far-right poster claims that Biden's approval rate is now 48%. Sure, if you look only at the Rasmussen poll which is heavily slanted far-right. In a much more accurate poll done by FiveThirtyEight which averages numerous polls together and even includes the Rasmussen polling, Biden has an approval of 54% and only a 41% (oddly about the same amount of people who were Trump supporters) disapproval rating.

The mere fact that the right-wingers only see the Rasmussen poll as the be-all-end-all to determining Biden's popularity is a validation on the thought that they do not regard any information outside their own warped sources as legitimate. They take the furthest reaching source and parade it about online like gospel because it affirms their own hateful views.

More moderate Americans would take a look at FiveThirtyEight and recognize that it views both right, left, and moderate polling and considers all opinions to formulate a conclusion. Not the far-right though - you won't find a shred of moderation there.

Biden Hasn't Done Anything

Apparently, nothing has happened since Biden took office 100 days ago if you live in the right-wing media tent.

Those 220 million people who have received at least one shot of the vaccine? Never happened.

The stock market improving the most (9.88%) of any President besides Franklin D. Roosevelt? Poppycock. (6.12% under their golden god by the way).

Passage of major stimulus legislation in 60 days, where as it took the GOP 270 days to pass similar legislation? According to the right, "we all know that was going to be pushed through by both parties," they claim, despite not a single member of their party that actually did vote for the legislation. I guess they didn't know much since 'both' parties did not push it through. One did, the other then just touted the passage on social media after not giving it any support

An actual plan to withdraw from Afghanistan? Nothing to see here.

Reforming relations with key allies? So what.

Plans to combat climate change? The right-wing doesn't believe in science, who are we trying to kid here.

The right seems to think that Biden is, in the words of one deluded soul, "rolling down the mountain really fast." It would appear that way if one were ignorant to the facts. For a guy slipping, he seems to really be getting a lot done.

Stayed tuned for someone who can actually pass infrastructure legislation and not let their malignant narcissism get in the way of helping make America better.

Once a sucker, always a sucker

Once a sucker, always a sucker

Alternate Reality

The only thing the far-right continues to prove is that there is no way they should be allowed to govern anything as long as they live in their own hate-filled alternate reality. Each and every day, they show they have not moved on from Trumpism and falling for the most outrageous lies fed to them by their own media.

It'd be sad if they didn't show that those same people could be inspired to attack their own Capitol and kill police officers in the process, all based on lies. Forget foreign dangers, these people are the single greatest threat to our country currently.

Unfortunately, they are too brainwashed to see it.

Considering it's now proven that Manafort coordinated with Russian intelligence during the 2016 campaign, it wasn't the Democrats who made him the bad guy. We just didn't believe his lies and never trusted a man who aligned himself with Russia over our own intelligence services. That kind of thing is treasonous, at least to those not in his cult.

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on April 30, 2021:

Trump did NOT pose a threat to America. He only posed a threat to the democrats because they were afraid that he was going to "drain the swamp" and the democrats were the scum he was going to be draining. The dems considered it a joke when he first announced that he was running. Then they started getting weak in the knees when he won the Republican ticket. Then when he won the presidency their knees completely buckled. Then they had to scramble to try and figure out what they could do to make him the bad guy.

All Trump wanted to do is save America from the socialistic democrats. Just imagine, if you can, how much good Trump could have done for this country if he could have been the president instead of having to deal with all of the BS the dems were dishing out.

JOC (author) from Syracuse, NY on April 30, 2021:

Not because they hated him, they, and 81 million other Americans understood the threat he posed to the country. A threat they watched play out as he incited HIS supporters by organizing the rally, then telling them to march to the Capitol. Either he's an idiot who doesn't understand what kind of people he was riling up or complicit in the death of police. Take your pick, but either way, the man is not fit for office whichever way you view it.

You claimed millions. Clearly a lie. A very Trumpian lie where you exaggerate things to make them seem more than what they actually were. And outside is safer, the science backs that up, not that you believe in science though.

Lower courts examine evidence and deemed those statements to be hypotheticals or misunderstandings of the process because people skipped the training sessions. Judges stated these, but again, your right-wing media either doesn't report that or you just choose to ignore an equal branch of government. Actually, that is more likely an AND statement.

That last statement is another lie. Here is Arkansas, a nicely deep red state and what they did: Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) and Secretary of State John Thurston (R) announced that voters in the November 3, 2020, general election would be allowed to cite concerns over COVID-19 as a valid excuse for voting absentee. Hutchinson subsequently issued an executive order formalizing this policy change.

According to you and your Constitutional arguments, they would have had to change their laws through the legislature. Clearly, Arkansas, using your own reasoning, committed fraud. Where's the outrage?!?!?!

KC McGee from Where I belong on April 30, 2021:

You know it and I know it, the Democrats wanted the trial the go through because they hated Trump's guts and that was the ONLY reason. And you can NOT have a Trial without a SCJ presiding. So the impeachment TRIAL against Trump was ILLEGAL. It would and did VIOLATE the CONSTITUTION. Which the Democrats are very good at.

You define millions as "some people", you call floods of people in the streets "safe". again a lie. Watch the vedios. It's clear they did not give a damn about any pandimic.

16,000 pages of evidece the court NEVER ALLOWED to be Present to the SCOTUS . The did not toss of evidence because they where not allowed to present the evidence. The made a ruling without looking at any evidence.The SCJ were to much a coward to do their jobs. Statements made under Oath is EVIDENCE.

25 States made changes to vote within the laws of though state and within time allow by their State Constitution. 5 State change rule and law by individuals who did NOT have the legal authorty under their State laws or the U.S. Constitution to do so. So, you lie again.

JOC (author) from Syracuse, NY on April 30, 2021:

Hey AB... yeah, we know each other pretty well by now.

I think we definitely disagree with the role our government should have. I would argue that government investing in its citizens by expanding federally funded education two extra year to include community college would have immense benefits. It's not really changing much since they already do spending for public education currently. Using its resources to help its citizenry become healthier by getting more people access to health care again will help work productivity and will have immense benefits.

Investing in citizens is not a shiny object to me. It's my share of taxes going to help my fellow citizens. I have no issue because I don't claim to be a patriot and then want to deny helping my fellow Americans become better or to have my local police and firefighters well compensated.

Do I think there should be limitations? Surely. People should be able to get a hand up, but not keep that hand there continuously taking. There should be a point when that hand up leads to mandated independence. I think we might just differ on when that sink or swim point may be.

JOC (author) from Syracuse, NY on April 30, 2021:

And it seems your completely ignorant of historical precedent. William Belknap, resigned, left office and the Senate still conducted the trial of his impeachment. Now, if you have some court case that provides a different example, by all means, present it. But I have historical examples to back my case, it appears you are the liar here.

Millions? Another blatant lie. Yes, some people went outside, you know, where it's safer, to celebrate Biden's win.

16,000 pages of clear evidence - which was so clear that lower courts tossed it out because what is clear to Trumpers was hypotheticals that fraud could occur, not that it did. By Trumper logic, because a gun could be used to murder, means that it will so we should ban all guns. So many lower courts tossed the 'evidence' because it wasn't evidence, it was statements made by idiots who skipped the training to know what they were looking at at polling stations, as noted by a judge Trump had appointed.

Again, it was not 5 states that changed voter laws, it was 30 that made concessions to protect citizens. Why do you morons not complain about the other 25 where Trump won? Sure, if changing processes in the five were violations (which their state courts ruled were not, hence were back to you Constitutional scholars thinking that rulings by the judiciary are somehow illegal when the courts have ruled that they weren't), why does that also apply to the 25 Trump won? Help us understand your logic there - or lack of it.

KC McGee from Where I belong on April 30, 2021:

By the time the trial had STARTED on or about the 9th of Febuary, Trump was a private citizen for over two weeks. Seems to me you don't know the difference betweem Impeachment part and The Trial itself.. So, stop lying.

Democrats didn't seem to fear they pandimic between 6th and 9th of November when Democrats took to the streets by the million to party over biden's so called win. Where was their fear then of the pandimic as they partied in the streets and in each others faces.But, by God the Democrats demanded mail-in-voting beause of the pandimic and the fear of standing in line to vote. Gee, it sounds stupid.

The SCOTUS NEVER allowed the lawyers to present their 16,000 pages of clear evidence voter fruad to the court. Only opening arguments were heard by the SCOTUS. It NEVER got pass that point. Evidence of voter fruad was NEVER ALLOWED to be presented to court . OR ANY OTHER COURT. So don't lie to me about it.

State officals in 5 states violated their own State Constitution by changing voter laws without authority to do so and using the "pandimic" as excuse to use mail-in-voting. So, again you lie.

Yes, Democrats are great at lying through their marxist teeth.

A B Williams from Central Florida on April 30, 2021:

Good morning V, I think you and I have had enough conversations over the years for you to know where I am coming from and it's not from a place of hate, quite the opposite. However there are some things that I hate.

I hate that Americans have become hyphenated. I want opportunity for ALL Americans and the more government grows, the less opportunities we ALL have! If things don't change, some will be born here and never know what it truly means to live free with endless opportunity, because of this destructive path we've chosen. It's so easy to chase the shiny objects, which are endlessly promised (that word endless again) by some in government, but we all know that everything that glitters or glistens is not gold and may often have a deadly bite.

JOC (author) from Syracuse, NY on April 30, 2021:

Yeah, sure you're not a Republican. As you come on here and try and sell the 'Big Lie' that the election was stolen because 30 states chose to modify policies so they didn't kill their constituents during a pandemic so they could exercise their rights under the Constitution. Suddenly, helping people exercise rights is a violation of the Constitution, even though the courts upheld the vast majority of those decisions. I guess under your Constitution, that third branch of government can be ignored. Sorry, but when I read mine, their rulings about what is lawful should be heeded. There's the difference between us - one of us doesn't ignore lawful ruling and then claim illegality. Nor am I willing to ignore that when the second impeachment actually occurred, Trump was still the sitting president. That the leader of his own party chose to delay his trial until after he left office does not cancel that he was impeached while in office.

I almost denied that post because it's filled with the same lies about 'Democrats want open borders' crap that the right-wing completely misunderstands about the left. If that were the case, Obama would not have increased funding for border security or expelled a record number of illegal immigrants, targeting the most dangerous of them as well to protect American citizens.

It's not Democrats denying that racism exists right now. That would be the Lindsey Grahams and Tim Scotts of one party. And it's not the left's fault that when we say that racism exists that you hear all white people are racists. That's likely your own guilty conscience at work there.

KC McGee from Where I belong on April 30, 2021:

You have me all wrong. I'm not a Republican, Democrat or an Independent. I'm just an American who deeply believe in our Constitution and the rule of law. I fully support our Law Inforcement who risk their lives daily to keep us ALL as safe as possible and uphold the Constitution of the United State as their Oath requires of them. As oppose to Marxist Democrrats who want open borders so thousand of illegal aliens cross our borders and love watching BLM and Antifa burn our cities to the ground and sit back and support their rage in direct violation of the Laws of the nation. Marxist Democrats spew their own HATE and Marxist critical race theory and accuse people of being racist just because they are born white. All the while forgeting the fact that hunders of thousands of white men die during the civil war to free people from slavery.

Daily, we as Americans watch Democrats violate their Oath to uphold the laws of the Constitution and in the worst case I have seen so far, their trial to impeach a U.S. citizen who was no longer a persident. So much of a violation of the Constitution that the SCJ was unwilling to oversee the illegal trial. He knew better then to help Marxist Democrats violate the Constitution, AGAIN.

The Democrat party has no problem turning a blind eye to their own violations of the laws and their supporters, but their double standards are revealed when they hold Republicans accountable to laws of this country.

Yes, 2020 election was stolen by Marxist Democrats with the Help of the SCOTUS, DOJ, CIA, NSA , FBI and the U.S. Military, if for no other reason their failure to UPHOLD,SUPPORT, and DEFEND the Constitution of the United States. If they had done so, Trump would be persident right now. But Marxism is now to deep within this country, which is why biden is the persident.

Marxist Democrats continue to divide this country which started with obama and his uses of the race card as he crap on our Constitution. Democrat now in control have now picked up where obama left off. And leave it to the Democrats AGAIN, to divide this country to the point of another civil war.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your current Republican party. There are labels, there are insults, there are conspiracy theories. And there is the autocracy of if you're not one of us, you must be anti-American.

KC McGee from Where I belong on April 29, 2021:

I watch that Marxist criminal biden*s SOTU speech. Within the first 10 minates of listening to that POS lie through his Marxist teeth I turn it off. What made the whole thing worse was fact that that Marxist race baiting POS harris and the old bag pelosi sat behind criminal biden as he gave his garbage speech. That low life biden should be in prison along with the entire marxist Democrat party. Bunch of low life anti-American race baiting POS.

JOC (author) from Syracuse, NY on April 28, 2021:

Clearly, you don't understand what the word socialism means as no Democrat wants to do away with capitalism. But there are literally hundreds of articles that argue that capitalism could use some limitations. But to far-right morons, any limitation on capitalism means socialism because you need your labels to target your rage.

The fact that you guys even try and argue the government wants to take over the means of production just proves the title of this article.

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on April 28, 2021:

It's the left that is brainwashed into thinking socialism is going to be better.
