Response to Kentonio (Reply #18)

19. I know our own children were persuaded by various information they read and heard in the media.

 

We were shocked by their talking points about HRC and wondered what we did wrong in raising them to be critical thinkers. They fell for the bot posts and messages to their phones and iPads, being heavy followers of Facebook and Twitter and Instagram. In our discussions with them at family dinners we became horrified by their spewing of RW talking points that they didn't even realize were RW talking points. Four females and two male children...all four females and one son were for either Bernie or staying home and not voting. After our recounting of history under the Clinton administration and an in-depth discussion about the 90's the crime bill and what the neighborhood streets were like, banking red-lining, access to positions of power etc. Two changed their minds and said they voted for HRC the rest did not vote much to our sadness. So yes, whether it was Russia or just the RW or Bernie attacks on HRC it's difficult to really know but the impact was real and horrific.
