A blog post by Jason Easley at politicususa.com, with links to a Boston Globe column, nicely illuminates the craziness level upon which too many Americans now reside.
As the rest of the nation looks on in disbelief at the level of crazy among some Republicans in Texas, it needs to be understood that the insanity over Jade Helm is not unique to Texas. The Republican Party has been gripped by paranoia. Republicans are paranoid, and they elect candidates who legitimize and indulge their taste for conspiracies.
This dynamic is why House Republicans investigated the IRS. It is also why the nation is suffering its eighth investigation into Benghazi. Republicans benefit by playing to the paranoia.
What Jade Helm teaches us all is that Republican fear of the nation’s first black president is getting stronger even though his time in office is winding down.
The question I have: How much of this paranoia, this increased crazification, is a result of propaganda? Lies emanating from right-wing think tanks and various media outlets – I’m thinking of you Roger Ailes
