If I think about this issue more than about four consecutive minutes I lapse into a red haze.
No one talks about my state politics (there just doesn't seem to be much of an internet presence) unless it gets so stupid the entire country gets drawn into the spectacle. Like that whole mandatory-hassling-of-people-who-look-like-they-could-be-from-Mexico folks wanted to call an "immigration law". (seriously, not "you're allowed to ask" but "you have to
ask about their immigration status if you suspect them". I still haven't learned what it had to do with the actual process of immigration)
And What I'm remember is that this is just a whole political ideology if not culture that I do not understand at all.
Look at the conversation in the OP
"You know this is a lie" "welll, didn't have proof"
"you know this is a lie" "there's controversy"
It terrifies me that there could be an audience that in any way responds positively to that.
Is it partisan? Is it just one mass of horrifically influential extremists? Does anyone on the leftwing do that kind of repetitive puttering out of failed ideas?
