How Conservative Mind Control damaged our family:

me-and-family-mod

This picture is from the mid 1960’s of me, my brothers and sisters, Mom, Grandma and Grandpa, My father was taking the picture I guess. I’m the little dude with the striped shirt.

I am the youngest of seven children, four girls and three boys. I don’t believe my sisters have been mind controlled, except by television commercials and stuff like that, I am a victim of that also. It’s my two older brothers that I believe have been conservative mind controlled.

Please let me know if the following sounds familiar to you…

My next older brother has always been my buddy and I have strong feelings for him. He has always been really cool and easy going. About as far away from being a conservative republican as someone can be. Me and this brother were not in close contact as we got older, but sometime over the last ten years his life changed a lot. I went to stay at his house for a few days, about five years ago and I noticed something different about him. When he came home from work he was glued to Fox News, and it seemed like for some reason it was bringing up anger in him. Then we were in his car and he was listening to talk radio, I think it was Rush Limbaugh and I can remember the angry tone was bringing up anger in him also. Up to that time in my life I never paid much attention to politics, but soon learned what he was watching and listening to, and it was easy for me to see that it had changed his life in a confused and dreadful way.

My oldest brother I never felt as close to as my next older brother, but we were always nice to each other. His wife has been a Christian ever since they were married around 35 years ago. But she was the kind of Christian that I have respect for, she was kind and non-judgemental. At first when my brother went to church with her and their kids, he stayed pretty much the same person, until around ten years ago. It seems that his Christianity changed from faith in Jesus, to a self righteous conservative Christian attitude. Once this change happened, his wife also changed from being kind and non-judgemental to being self righteous also. This brother is also a loyal Fox News viewer and a conservative republican. It was not as surprising to see this brother change in this way, because he has been somewhat narcissistic most of his life. But it still sucks that he was brainwashed, all the same.

——————————————————————————

I did not create this page to judge my brothers, and others like them. I believe they are victims of conservative mind control, not the creators of it. But the difficult thing to understand is how this brainwashing, made them preach the same crazy ideas they are taught about inequality, our wars, etc. And the craziest thing of all, is that at the center of the brainwashing is usually greedy republicans making lots of money, while the victims are usually struggling to pay their bills. These greedy republicans are the cause of the worst problems facing our country today.

I know, it is easy to say that maybe I am also mind controlled, just by other sources. If I am brainwashed, I believe it is with positive values, that are based in reality.

  1. Unlike Archie Bunker, a funny tv show, living with that kind anger is not to funny. My father has said unkind things to me in the past, because I don’t fit into his conservative views. Me and him don’t talk anymore, sad. (youtube video of Archie)

  2. Fourteen Propaganda Techniques Fox “News” Uses to Brainwash Americans.
    #10. Invoking the Christian God, I found most interesting: This is similar to othering and populism. With morality politics, the idea is to declare yourself and your allies as patriots, Christians and “real Americans” (those are inseparable categories in this line of thinking) and anyone who challenges them as not. Basically, God loves Fox and Republicans and America. And hates taxes and anyone who doesn’t love those other three things. Because the speaker has been benedicted by God to speak on behalf of all Americans, any challenge is perceived as immoral. It’s a cheap and easy technique used by all totalitarian entities from states to cults.
