Fear tactics didn’t work

Election results

I believe the election results were a repudiation of mean-spirited bigotry repackaged as “religious values.”

When conservative talk-show hosts poison the airwaves with hate and distortion, they are preying on the paranoia of the fearful and insecure. We can only hope the failure of these tactics sends a message. Voters are no longer fooled by hypocrites who wrap themselves in the flag while feeding fear and hatred.
