I'm old enough to remember the very tail end of the Red Scare here in America. In my youth I lived through the billion dollar War on Drugs boondoggle. And the Satanic Panic. And the Weapons of Mass Destruction Fabrication. And the War on Terror Debaucle.

Come at me with one more "problem" for me to line your pockets so you can "fix," and I won't do it but I'll certainly entertain fantasies of beating you with a shovel.

Agreed!!!! 10000 times yes!

You forgot the ozone scare, the coming ice age, peak oil, the population bomb, the coming water wars, reef madness, acid rain, DDT and other pesticides.!


all scares that could only be solved with MONEY and lots and lots of it! All scares that vanished as the "tipping points" points passed.

NO MORE DOOM PORN

Acid rain and ddt were actual issues, but certainly not on the doom port level they were portrayed.

TOTALLY agree with the OP. I don't need the lefts new red scare, or the rights renewal of the drug war crusade. However if the actual boogeyman shows up, I will reconsider. I hear he's scary as hell.

Does that include the current central hate figure, namely White Heterosexaul Masculine Men?

This is a remake from the first but it still describes it pretty well. Rather it be aliens or government, fear is the number one controller of mankind.

let us not forget the "sock puppet" charities, funded solely by the government, to promote health scares

The "fat" scare, the "sugar" scare, the "salt" scare, the "alcohol" scare, the "tobacco" scare, the "obesity" scare, the "perfume" scare

All the things we have been doing and eating for a million years are now all "deadly" and responsible for all death. We would all be immortal, if we would just think and act exactly as we are told. (ok, maybe not forever, but without pleasure and individuality, it would sure seem like it).

The "pesticide" scares (its in our food, its in our water, it causes all diseases, it kills all honeybees. Buy bottled water and organic food only!

it certainly does! white men are responsible for everything, black men are all drugg dealers who are violent and abandon their wives and children. Hispanics are stupid but could be used to do heavy, unpleasant labor. Muslims are all swivel eyed terrorists looking to kill all non-muslims.

Woman are all feminists looking to destroy males

Does that about cover it?

Remember, Killer Bees, Fire Ants and Gypsy Moths?

Whatever keeps the fear alive.

Please refrain from using what you lefties invented for your own fragile minds [safe spaces, triggers etc] for us normal people. We call a spade a spade and don't need safe spaces, we want discussions without whining.

All I can deduce from when you start using your own invented words as insults, is that they are indeed silly.
So thanks for agreeing that safe spaces are moronic.
