One large difference between right and left, imho, is that the right knows about all the news and opinions in the corporate media and on conservative sites, while the left knows only the news and opinions they heard in the corporate media.

This is because it pains the left to discover facts which don't make them feel good about themselves.

Is there any way to get through to them?

I note the discomfort and disconnects intruding on the minds of the couple of libs that I will occasionally talk with. No more "BLM ribbons" around our hood in Santa Cruz. At some point they seemed to have second thoughts about them and dropped the sanctimonious bullshit. It is kind of a shamefaced shuffling, but not a complete emergence from denial. However, the smugness and smirks are definitely gone in the more sane libs, which I suppose is progress of some sort.

One friend has written it off as some kind of random 'cultural deterioration'. I don't know if he got that from propaganda, or it is just the way he tries to make sense of things, but it is a denial view that none of what is happening is a matter of agency from specific political forces, namely, the DNC and the Globalists. He has attributed it to a random force of society, doesn't want to or can't finger his beloved crazies.

I think a lot of the 'truth pundits' also wonder how long or even IF a significant majority of the population will 'wake up' or not. It isn't yet an answered question, but making sure the information is out there and isn't strangled is the only way to try.

Great observation.

Not in my experience. I just consider my pals that have lurched left to have contracted something like zombie-ism and leave it at that.
