1. I've been wondering the same thing.
Why have we become so paranoid and afraid? This is mostly a right wing syndrome that has me baffled. I remember during the Bush years the conservatives kept harping about "keeping us safe." I couldn't understand their fear and how they were perfectly fine with trashing civil liberties as long as they were "kept safe." A conservative once asked me what I would do if a terrorist showed up on my doorstep and I told him I'd thump him with my Louisville slugger. What's the big deal?

Fox news and FRight Wing media has been feeding these people for four years FEAR. They have used every foe this country has had to face. Obama as been called Communists, socialists, Nazi Muslim. And they whip fear how he is giving away freebies to the brown mongrels. (Democratic Party) They have accused this President of everything including the murder of 4 people in Benghazi. People so scared they are stockpiling supplies. They are not going to wait for Jesus, they are giving up, hunkering down...so what does Fox tell them?
He is coming for your guns!
Now they get to sit back and watch what happens next.
This is PROPAGANDA When are we going to admit it? (Below from Wiki)
Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed towards influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.
As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political, religious or commercial agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of ideological or commercial warfare.
While the term propaganda has justifiably acquired a strongly negative connotation by association with its most manipulative and jingoistic examples (e.g. Nazi Propaganda used to justify the Holocaust), propaganda in its original sense was neutral, and could refer to uses that were generally benign or innocuous, such as public health recommendations, signs encouraging citizens to participate in a census or election, or messages encouraging persons to report crimes to law enforcement, among others.
