7. They aren't Christians

They just masquerade as Christians. Their so-called religion is a superstitious self-righteous form of spiritual materialism.

4. Yes, turning on trump would

be turning on themselves. Doesn't matter if he's an agent for Russia they were never patriots anyway.

9. disagree. most are a product of 30 years of talk radio ignorance by dems, liberals

most trump supporters get their info from talk radio and or fox or from those who do. if you want to hear ugly turn on some of that 20-1 monopoly - any of those 1500 stations will give you trump ugly most of the day.

at $1000/hr x 15 hrs x 1200 stations it's worth nearly $5BIL/day of ugly, and excuses for it.

it's not unavoidable human nature and it can be shut down

that is where they learn the alternate reality and learn to rationalize and excuse their ignorance, greed, and bigotry instead of suppress or moderate it

the right built that propaganda operation 30 years ago and we ignored it instead of monitoring and challenging it.

media finally gave limbaugh/talk radio credit for the shutdown - maybe now media will finally poll for the connection.

and maybe mueller will find out putin's been using it for a decade or more - from forcing palin on mccain, climategate, debt default, govt shut downs, tea party, and now trump - who studied talk radio in 2014

americans are not even 10% trump-like. the support will fall apart when we finally stop ignoring the talk radio gods, and it will sure make it a lot easier to get the senators to impeach him

14. I think you and the OP are both right.

The ugliness displayed by Trump supporters is something they've always had the capacity for, but those smoldering fires within them have been fanned to a roaring flame by thirty years of hate radio.

16. yes, and we can't set that aside.

There's an example in my family. My cousin. A retired policeman. Coast Guard service stationed in Hawaii, then Honolulu PD. Married a native Hawaiian woman. Three children, now with their own children. He's a great guy; the most steady loving father and husband. Generous, kind, very comfortable financially because of hard work and good money management; owns a beachfront second home and investment property.

He's also the product of AM radio and FOX. A Trumper. His attachment came about because of disgust for regulatory issues, and the idea that liberals/intellectuals look down on the everyday working person. He didn't go to college and has no reference point for literature, philosophy, the great ideas. I have seen him shake his head in disgust many times and mock "soft" liberalism.

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to ride home from the beach house with him. Hate radio was on. OMG. OMG.

If you have not listened to AM radio, do for a couple of hours. It's stunning. Worse than FOX.

17. since it's finally gotten some attention i hope they'll start polling for it and then maybe

the pundits will start factoring it in. and i wonder how many cops listen to it while on patrol....

it's basically invisible to most city dwellers - who do most of the analysis - so they're basically studying fish without water

thing about talk radio liberals don't realize is that the local blowhards can be coordinated to local issues - unlike fox

and someone like limbaugh will chew over the same lies for 3 hours a day for as long as it takes to get all the other blowhards on board and have it fully integrated into their alternate reality

liberals opposing kavenaugh, like thomas, had no clue limbaugh spend nearly every hour of 3 weeks straight calling blasey ford a liar and actor working for the dems, trying to take down an exceptional and decent man. it worked, just like it did on anita hill a couple of decades ago - because the left has no clue

Ugly? It doesn't get uglier than this.
And he's PROUD of it.
