Consumers of right-wing media have been groomed to be anti-government, anti-democratic, anti-immigrant, anti-minority, anti-science, anti-intellectualism, and anti-equal rights for women, minorities, religious minorities and the LGBTQ+ community. They are taught to be unnecessarily fearful of Black Lives Matter and Antifa to the point where they think a civil war is imminent. They believe that those who do not agree with their worldview are uninformed or evil liberals.

The United States is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic nation and always has been. The fear for some is that the white, Christian majority is shrinking and they are trying to maintain majority privilege. Sadly, right-wing media is using this fear for profit and is reinforcing the racist thoughts and behavior that divide us.

As long as misinformation is advertised as legitimate news, the return to truth and unity is hopeless.
