But he was. A whole nation of people, much to their latter shame, actively played a role in the wholesale destruction of another group of people based on the most inhumane of reasons.
This is what happens when people buy into the party line 100% without questioning authority. Those same people, when faced with facts that refute the what they’ve been told and the questionable morality (or downright immorality) of their leaders, will often become rabid and fanatical in their leader’s defense—a condition very much akin to Stockholm Syndrome, where the kidnapped and persecuted begin to empathize with their captors.
Witness you then this classic example of what it looks like when someone completely buys into a
fucked up highly-questionable party line. Truth be told, you can see this charade five days a week, Monday through Friday mornings on The View, but yesterday it got reaaaaaaaaaaaaally interesting. Rosie O’Donnell has dared to speak out against the current administration, and, as a result, has come under repeated fire by the administration’s advance guard, the fanatically-scary, truth-challenged folks at Fox News. Watch the administration’s second advance guard (guess that wouldn’t make her advanced, would it?)—resident foolywang, Nazi-in-training Elisabeth Hasselbeck—go batshit in a discussion that wasn’t even directed at her from jump. It’s really something to behold.
Rosie was smart enough to be fairly chill as she chin-checked ol’ girl during their exchange, which made Elisabeth look like even more of a straight-up idiot in her fanatical ravings. I’m gonna miss Rosie. She made this show worth watching again.
Meanwhile, why is Elisabeth still on the air?
