Conservative Attack Ads: Let the lying begin!

The Conservative Context of “truth”

Science is for nerds, and the best science is: THERE IS NO BEST SCIENCE BECAUSE ALL SCIENCE IS WRONG OR AT BEST IRRELEVANT

Examples:

Climate Change

Pipeline dangers

Marijuana danger

Niqab danger

Refugee danger

Women’s Rights danger

See daily news for a multitude of Mr. Harper’s Paranoia and Narcissism

And finally:

Justin Trudeau is clueless on the economy

Now this is equivalent to the beliefs of many other “crazy” people with one idea, that they believe, if repeated enough will somehow become true:

The earth is flat

The moon is made of cheese

Measles vaccines causes autism

Elvis is still alive

There are monsters in the closet AND under the bed

Raped women can’t get pregnant

(You think of more examples, this is a really fun exercise. Remember if you don’t know why, make it up. And truthiness is like, just the best(!) thing. The bigger the lie, the easier it is to convince people to believe it.)
