Why Are Conservatives More Susceptible to Believing Lies?

It might help explain Donny's appeal to the Right. He traffics in blatant lying.

Quote:
Many conservatives [all LNF cons] have a loose relationship with facts. The right-wing denial of what most people think of as accepted reality starts with political issues: As recently as 2016, 45 percent of Republicans still believed that the Affordable Care Act included “death panels” (it doesn’t). A 2015 poll found that 54 percent of GOP primary voters believed then-President Obama to be a Muslim (…he isn’t).

Then there are the false beliefs about generally accepted science. Only 25 percent of self-proclaimed Trump voters agree that climate change is caused by human activities. Only 43 percent of Republicans overall believe that humans have evolved over time.

And then it gets really crazy. Almost 1 in 6 Trump voters, while simultaneously viewing photographs of the crowds at the 2016 inauguration of Donald Trump and at the 2012 inauguration of Barack Obama , insisted that the former were larger. Sixty-six percent of self-described “very conservative” Americans seriously believe that “Muslims are covertly implementing Sharia law in American courts.” Forty-six percent of Trump voters polled just after the 2016 election either thought that Hillary Clinton was connected to a child sex trafficking ring run out of the basement of a pizzeria in Washington, D.C., or weren’t sure if it was true.

If “truth” is judged on the basis of Enlightenment ideas of reason and more or less objective “evidence,” many of the substantive positions common on the right seem to border on delusional. The left is certainly not immune to credulity (most commonly about the safety of vaccines, GMO foods, and fracking), but the right seems to specialize in it. “Misinformation is currently predominantly a pathology of the right,” concluded a team of scholars from the Harvard Kennedy School and Northeastern University at a February 2017 conference. A BuzzFeed analysis found that three main hyperconservative Facebook pages were roughly twice as likely as three leading ultraliberal Facebook pages to publish fake or misleading information.

The "truth" is actually an old-fashioned idea that no educated person believes in anymore. There is no single "truth." Rather, there are just different perspectives, and all perspectives are equally valid, as there is no objective truth to which to compare them.

If you have questions about this, I suggest you read up on Einstein's theory of relativity and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. There is a lot of really complicated math that supports what I just said, and you probably can't even understand it.

So far we've had two LNF cons making silly irrelevant remarks, one LNF psycho over the edge, and the usual conservative attacking the source rather than the content.

None of them can handle the truth.

Sad.

"Truth" as in what you believe is truth, fredo?

You're so stupid. Smiley

And now two of them are getting mean and nasty. Cause they have nothing else, and they can't handle the truth.

So sad.
