Mom told me she was concerned about son being turned "liberal" by going to college (🤨) and I told her I was a little more concerned about him running afoul of Nazis (he looks Jewish, and has a could-be-Jewish first name) and she had literally never heard of Blaze Bernstein or Atomwaffen or Proud Boys or Richard Spencer, in case you wondered exactly how well-insulated the Fox News bubble is.
Anyway I shared my concerns with her about son (who already gets asked "Are you Jewish" when he uses his webcam in voice chats on Discord...) and now she has been educated on at least the existence of all of the above plus Proud Boys and Vanguard America and that when she hears that Berkeley is suppressing "conservative" speech she should check to see who the actual "conservatives" are because they're probably SELF-PROCLAIMED Nazis.
Mom isn't gonna answer my email for dayyyys again.
@gamehawk you don't worry about the people who vote for your side I guess.
@jemaleddin Right? I mean, I like to think that's because they'd scare off part of the base if they reported on the alt-right, but I'm also worried I'm over-optimistic.
And that's really not a thing you want to worry about concerning your own *mother*. 😞
@gamehawk The fact that Fox doesn't even report on that stuff is pretty worrying, given the bubble. Blech. Sorry Karen!
