I generally agree with Don D’Ammassa’s “Ground Rules,” though I’m at the point where I don’t read Websites like Fox News or other sites not based in reality. I know all of the following are nothing but right wing propaganda:
- Barack Obama was not born in the US.
- The CIA or other government agency was behind the 9/11 attack.
- Creationism should be taught in schools.
- Being gay is a choice.
- Global warming is a hoax (the extent of human involvement is, on the other hand, a legitimate area of argument).
- The Holocaust did not happen.
- Obama’s health care plan included death panels.
- A woman’s body can make a rapist’s sperm not impregnate her.
- The government is going to take away your guns (I sincerely hope they will limit the kinds of guns/ammunition sold, but that’s a different issue).
- Birth control is not health care.
- Americans are taxed now more than ever and taxes for the richest should be decreased even further (there’s no evidence from recent tax cuts that “trickle down” helps the economy – it just puts more money in the hands if the rich)
