the right-wing fentanyl lie exposed

FOX News and the rest of the fascist propaganda network had their followers shaking in fear over the claims that kids were going to be killed by fentanyl being handed out as candy. Where are all the stories of this happening?!?!

It's funny I was talking to my Fox News-watching father, and he raised the issue yesterday afternoon. I told him the story was utter nonsense and told him why. Two things:

what was the point of the lie the fascists propagandized?


How is it that my father can literally see that he is being lied to and yet he continues to believe them over people who tell the truth?

1. Your father has been brainwashed

You and he lack common points of reference, because they've all been torn down by the propagandists in the media and in the Republican Party.

How do you deprogram 70 million+ people?

2. Yeah, he has, no doubt about it

He can quote false or overblown claims, but he is often totally ignorant of important and relevant facts.

I really don't know how you reprogram people who have drank the right-wing Koolaid

The only thing I know is facts and reason didn't get him where he is, so facts and reason won't get him out of it.

I am also mindful that conservatives are fearful people. The fascists play on those fears and are beyond skillful in the manipulation off that weakness.

5. I think asking them specific questions about what they are saying makes them think.

Like asking for one piece of evidence that the 2020 election was stolen. And if they say something about satellites or something else crazy ask them for that evidence.

Or if they say Democrats are "just as corrupt" ask them to name a democrat that has been caught being corrupt.

Especially since there have been literally hundreds of right wingers arrested, indicted and sentenced in the last year. Where are the Democrats? And if they say FBI or Antifa ask for a piece of evidence for that.

7. We had an OD on Saturday in the villages

But we have them all the time. You won't hear about it in the news 'cuz of where we live, and the families usually bury the shame with the bodies and live with the pain inside.
Out of respect for the actual dead, they cancelled the community masquerade Halloween party. Also fear of another bad batch of Fenty being spread around.

I recall what a grieving elder told me once: ' I fear for our people, there is evil being spread among our relatives. We are facing the Devil'

One can cast a blind eye to the threat of Fenty pills until it affects oneself. Everybody around here is co-dependent to the evil and still turn their heads the other way

8. Repubs are too cheap to be giving away their fentanyl.

JD Vance verified that republicans are the main abusers of fentanyl.

JD claimed that the fentanyl was being brought in to kill off the MAGAs.
