Overused term but... cognitive dissonance on full display.

The media and political leaders are acting like it's business as usual, just do things the same as every other election, and reason will prevail. Just like 2016, reason will prevail. We won't reelect a senile malignant narcissist again, right? They wouldn't let that happen.
There's a 33% cult of personality with zero attachment to democracy, equality, or the rule of law beyond personal power. Trump has told them it's good to simply ignore facts and reporting that made them doubt or question, and Fox News and talk radio have been priming them for years to do so. You can't convince or reason with these people, and it's immoral to compromise with those promoting fascism and white nationalist.
If we have fair elections, this would still be a problem, but not a threat to the country. But we don't. The last two Republican Presidents lost the popular vote, but were appointed anyway, one by the Supreme Court ignoring the vote. This Supreme Court has given the green light to gerrymandering to rig the vote openly.
We won't have a democracy, if we don't fight for it. And I don't mean by just voting.

There's no cognitive dissonance. There's no denial. There's no delusion. They deny the truth just to piss people off.
They know what they say is bullshit. They know what Trump says is bullshit. They just get a little thrill every time they get to insist they are right while someone points to actual evidence proving they are wrong. The distress delights them.
Seriously, fuck these people. I'm surrounded by them here in Florida. They're all old and White and just so pissed off because the people they used to be able to push around can push back now.
They know they're being pushed out of power and just want to do as much harm as they can as they're dragged out. Trump will do the same, mark my words.

I desperately want this to be true. I just can't believe it, though.
There really are people that dumb. There are people doing exactly what you're talking about though - just to engage in conflict.

It’s a spectrum.
There are trumpers that are complete and utter morons (and/or senile) that can’t form an opinion without Fox News telling them what it is.
There are trumpers that only care about ‘owning the libs’ no matter the cost, even if they knowingly lie, even if hurts them.
Most are in the middle of that spectrum. They are smart enough to function in society but if they have to face an uncomfortable situation or fact they have good old Fox News to tell them they’re good and right, and it’s the scapegoats that are the problem. The evil scapegoats that hate America and your white xtian family.
Conservative media is a very highly effective dehumanization propaganda campaign. Everyone that isn’t One of Us is evil and shifty and backstabbing. 75 years ago they’d be passing out posters of slit-eyed buck toothed Democrats, hook-nosed environmentalists and bloodthirsty Africans.

Good thing the Young Turks have never been wrong about anything. I mean they are just as bad as Alex Jones goons that run around pretending to be unbiased journalists.
Yeah, saying kids that got killed in a mass shooting aren’t real is the same thing as what TYT do.
Or you’re a racist fucking idiot.
I see MB is still full of shit
this coming from the guy who was plugging project veritas is pretty rich
