Fear-Mongering for Fun and Profit

Fear-Mongering for Fun and Profit 

The Republican National Committee is planning to raise money from the little guy by scaring the bejesus out of him. The more fear, the more funds for the GOP in the next election cycle. Politico‘s Ben Smith got the Powerpoint RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart pitched to top GOP fundraisers in February. Ugly stuff.

“Exclusive: RNC document mocks donors, plays on ‘fear,'” Ben Smith, Politico.

“GOP: Nothing To Sell But Fear Itself,” Tim Dickinson, Rolling Stone.
