Question for Democrats: If you are 100% certain Trump is OBVIOUSLY a racist, how do you explain all the Black people who DON'T see it? Can there be that many Black people who don't recognize OBVIOUS racism?
The alternative hypothesis is that the media is capable of convincing most (but not all) of the public of any-damned-thing, and the left-leaning brainwashers decided to tell the public Trump is a racist. But what about all of the examples that prove their case, you ask?
Democrats don't have access to this information because the news is so siloed. But Republicans generally know the racism examples are fake news. The Fine People Hoax is the prime example. Half the country actually believes Trump called neo-Nazis "fine people." He did not.
Many believe Trump once took out a full-page ad in the NY Times saying the accused Central Park Five should be executed. But his ad was about violent crime in general, not that one. And why would you think Trump would oppose execution for white criminals in the same situation?
Most of the other "racism" complaints about Trump would be more accurately labelled provocative or offensive. Take the so-called "shithole countries" comment. Offensive? Sure. Racist? Not if you consider how provocatively Trump speaks about everything else.
I could run through the other examples, all fake or out of context. Or I could show you the compilation clip of Trump mocking lots of people using the same gestures he was accused of using to mock a reporter with a disability. Did you fall for that fake news?
I don't know how we climb out of our national division, but learning to not trust our own news sources has to be the starting place. The political Right is no better, by the way, but their brainwashing is on different topics.

I’m working on some persuasion ideas for avoiding a civil war. Suggestions welcome.
We don’t have any good common enemies to divert our attention. Coronavirus didn’t bring us together. Our national adversaries might pester us with fake ads, but we won’t notice them in the sea of domestic bullshit.
Maybe on Election Day Trump can announce he is releasing the UFO secrets the government has been hiding. But that would be too obvious.

If you think you can tell which leaders did the best job with coronavirus, you are not trained to compare things rationally. I’ll give you a few reasons why, but there are dozens...
Trump used the “excuse” of the coronavirus to claw back manufacturing from China. Not every leader would have made that play. How many lives does an improved economy save in the long term? No one knows.
And how many decisions did Trump make that DISAGREED with the experts? I’m not aware of any.

I wonder if I could deprogram a Democrat from TDS on livestream. I’d start by asking them to make a list of national priorities.
Then I’d talk them through the list with the goal of showing them how many relevant facts their news sources leave out. The goal would be to weaken their confidence in their own opinion.
If the Green New Deal is a high priority, I’d point to California and Germany being failed experiments in green energy. And I’d update their knowledge about nuclear energy that is always lacking on the left.

We need a public test for Low Information Voters, so they know who they are. Seriously. The test would look for gaps in their news knowledge, for example. . .
1. Do you believe the President colluded with Russia?

2. Do you believe members of the FBI and the media worked together to overthrow the legally elected government of the United States?

3. Do you believe the Fine People Hoax?

continued. . .
4. Do you believe science has proven HCQ is ineffective for treating coronavirus and is in fact dangerous?

5. Do you believe we already know which world leaders did a good job versus a bad job on coronavirus management?

6. Do you believe China is more of a threat or a partner?

We need an EO allowing some places to be designated "experimental single home" properties where entrepreneurs can rapidly build and test low-cost homes that are entirely different from what local building codes allow.
Still need an engineer to sign off, but risk is low, payback huge.
Once you have some single-family home designs that are insanely affordable and liveable, you start experimenting with small community designs that are optimized for healthy interactions and low crime opportunity. Make fifty different small communities. Learn.

Has anyone ever seen a story about a guy who got COVID-19, got early treatment with the combo of HCQ, zinc, and Azithromycin, and died anyway?
Seems like an easy story for the anti-Trump media to generate. They could do one of those feature stories every day and guarantee Trump loses.
And yet they don’t. They only quote Dr. Fauci cherry picking the WRONG KIND of clinical trials as evidence HCQ does not work. And he obviously knows it. Half of Twitter users know it.
