Tirade of Hyphenates, Grape Nuts, Policy Innovation, and a Confused Right Wing Radio Host (ep 27)

A tirade of hyphenates for the Right: “Deficit-bloating, greedy privatizing, school-closing, selective bible-quoting, truck-nuts dragging, dog-whistling, science denying, pedaphile-embracing, Breitbart-reading, tiki torch-carrying, caviar-eating, porn-star-gagging, hummer-driving, Alex Jones- loving, right-wing clown car!  Drive it out of our county, out of our country.  Go Back to Russia.”

25-32 Wal-mart and Trump.  Is one worse for America?

32-45 The WHLM controversy that won’t die and Hang on a Sec with a confused manifesto.

45- Tirade of Hyphenates.  The WHLM controversy sparked the kind of “latte-sipping” attack that presaged the psychographic hocus pocus of Cambridge Analytica and like.  We rivist this trope of political attacks, including the original one from 2004.  YouTube clip:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4-vEwD_7Hk
