How the Right Became Trump-worshipping Monsters Set on Ratf*cking Liberals, America, and Truth ItselfBook - 2018
"In Troll Nation, journalist Amanda Marcotte outlines how Trump was the inevitable result of American conservatism's degradation into an ideology of blind resentment. For years now, the purpose of right wing media, particularly Fox News, has not been to argue for traditional conservative ideals, such as small government or even family values, so much as to stoke bitterness and paranoia in its audience. Traditionalist white people have lost control over the culture, and they know it, and the only option they feel they have left is to rage at a broad swath of supposed enemies -- journalists, activists, feminists, city dwellers, college professors -- that they blame for stealing "their" country from them.".
