Fox Non-News has gone too far. How many times have we said this? It’s true, though. Fox has gone too far repeatedly as their hate pundits have done as much damage to the American experiment as one Donald Trump.

Indoctrination is the word. Fox is playing a deadly game with its viewers, one that most of its audience is not sophisticated enough to understand. Tom Malinowski is a Democratic New Jersey Congressman. And what he tweeted should worry people. According to Malinowski, he’s been getting calls.

These calls are coming from Fox viewers. And many of them, in particular, are Tucker Carlson fans. And they’re angry. Their angry because President Biden isn’t backing RUSSIA in the military standoff. In fact, some are infuriated about it. The term “Useful idiots” absolutely applies here.

Fox and Tucker have engaged in so much propaganda it’s almost limitless. And like good little sheep, where Fox death-news and Tucker go, the sheep dutifully follow. I have some thoughts on this story. The mind of a Maga is most definitely someplace I would not want to dwell. I’m sure you feel the same way.

It is difficult sometimes to share the country with a small percentage of Americans who are members of a cult. It would be lovely to think that these folks will wake up and see the brainwashing any minute. But in reality, I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

But Maga has long been displayed in all its hatefulness — long before it actually came to life. I don’t do this often, but I’d like to mention a TV episode. If you like Law & Order, look for episode 17, season 9. It is entitled “Authority.” It also stars the extraordinary and deeply missed Actor, Robin Williams.

I won’t say another word about said episode. But it first premiered in 2008, and if you watch it, you will see how easy it is to fall into the dark cloud of Trumpism — for some people. This episode was lightning years ahead of its time in acting, perhaps unintentionally, as a predictor of what could and has happened.

Be proud friends and readers. Be proud that you have your individuality intact. Be proud that you haven’t let Fox blind you with hate — against your own country. And be proud that you were born with the power of reasoning and have the extraordinary ability to think for yourselves.
