I can finally watch "The Brainwashing of my Dad"

I think it might be two years waiting.

I bought it on amazon and it's good.

It explains how a decent man goes to full mean right wing in his daughter's understanding of it.

I recommend it.

1. It happened to my dad too...

... after my mom died and he remarried
this super conservative, religious person.

All they watched was Fox News. It was
so difficult to see him devolve like that.

2. My dad, too.

He hates Obama - like spitting mad. Defends Fox, "They've won AWARDS!" I cannot talk politics to him except in small doses. He watches some other conservative station on TV as well.

When Obama announced he was going to Cuba, my father said, "He waited us out (Castro). He waited and he wins." I said, "Dad - we have relationships with all kinds of countries, communist and otherwise. China? Saudi Arabia?"

He quietly conceded the point, but in general, right wing propaganda has worked on him.
