If you guessed that at one time or another, they were all used by conservatives to scare their followers into thinking that the end of the United States as we know it was near, congratulations.

Every one of these were, at one point or another, used to make people fear something (usually something they knew little or nothing about but it sounded scary).

The latest example of course is at the top of the list: Critical Race Theory.

Most people, including politicians like Raphael “Ted” Cruz and growing-more-kooky-by-the-day  Texas Governor Greg Farquaad have little understanding of CRT.

However, they do understand that their followers have even less understanding, and that knowledge gap can be exploited, as it has for all of the other 99 items on the list to raise money  to come up with the next boogeyman for the uninformed to be scared about.

To keep the cycle going.

And that my friends, is why the Right doesn’t like the idea of a well-educated electorate, and why it is now more important than ever.
