I guess we should have seen this coming.
Texas Republican Senatecreep Ted Cruz told the GOP to stop reading the New York Times. You know, pretending that most of them can read big words.
And that set me to pondering that the first step of any cult is to cut you off from reality. I am semi-intelligent. I can watch Fox News and come away with my values and ideals intact. The same is not true for the followers of Ted Cruz. If they are exposed to the New York Times, they will immediately vote for Hillary Clinton. In medical and psychological terms this is called “stupid.”
But just cutting them off from the New York Times isn’t enough. The Facebook is also a tool of the devil.
Just looking at pictures of your cat or what you had for dinner is far too tempting a lifestyle for Ted Cruz’s Teapartiers. They now have their own Facebook.
Okay, there’s an upside. I only have two Republican friends on Facebook, and now they can go post their crazy crap somewhere else. It’s not that I fear it will pollute my mind, it’s just that I just hate knowing how many people will believe any damn lie that ted Cruz, the NRA, and GOP tells them. And that Snopes has a liberal bias.
Thanks to EMoon for the heads up.
