Fear preying

Donnie-boy employs precisely the same tactics as the mainstream pro-vaccine community. He preys on peoples’ fears. In the case of the pro-vaxxers, the propaganda goes something like this: “If you don’t vaccinate your kids, then they will contract horrible infectious diseases that will surely maim or even kill them. So be a responsible parent, believe in the science, and inject away. Trust us. We know what we’re doing, we will protect you. We’re thinking of the Greater Good.” Trump and his ilk will say something like this: “If we don’t bar all those people from those Muslim countries from entering our country, then some of them will surely maim or even kill us. After all, they are RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, and they only have one thing in mind. Trust me. I know what I’m doing, I will protect you. I’m thinking of the Greater Good.”
