White People Mourning Romney

Recommended Posts

Here's a website dedicated to documenting the misguided tears of those who placed the hope of their future in a single man because they are convinced OBOMBER is an evil evil socialist hitler bent on turning the USA into the banana republic.

The scariest thing to me, besides seeing the ability of people to be herded by ideologues and lack of critical thinking skills into radical fatalist positions that benefit a political party, is the number of kids being brainwashed. none of the teary-faced kids in here are teary-faced because their cognitive analysis has formed their opinions; they are teary-faced because they've been heavily socialized to believe that OBOMBER is evil we are probably in the middle of the end days as described in the bible. their thoughts and actions will likely reflect this for the rest of their lives.

(of course that blind socialization applies to either side of the political aisle, but regardless this is a pretty poignant snapshot of the power of ideologues, association, and social processes. it should make you think.)

here's a scary example of how politicians can fuel massive social movement and mold belief systems based on the sincere religious convictions of massive amounts of people regardless of whether or not those values are reflected in the politician's party

I think the evangelicals did not show up for Romney. Romney gets 3 million less votes than McCain.

none of those kids have a damn clue, they're just doing what their parents are telling them to do, and they'll grow up die-hard righters because of it. they will filter data and information based on their socialized belief system rather than letting an objective analysis of the data build their paradigms.

you see it in all belief systems, democrat or republican or mormon or muslim or hindu or anything else that defines a belief system. it's fuging scary.

To be fair, I have seen people on the losing end of every election crying like fools.

Part of getting folks pumped up is the inevitable crash. One winner and one loser each time.
