Why Conservatives Suddenly Care About Rightwing Mail-Order Scams
Anyone who follows the conservative movement carefully could tell you that it’s about 25 percent politics and 75 percent mail-order scam. For more than half a century now, charlatans passing themselves off as conservative leaders have exploited ordinary conservatives’ anxiety about a changing America to collect addresses and now email lists in order to sell snake oil and raise funds that followers believe are going to political causes but frequently just line the pockets of the con artists.
Selling outrage and victimhood to conservatives is incredibly profitable. You can literally make millions doing it.
