What is the best name for the alternate universe the US far right inhabits?
The US has a political party with a large number of members in it’s far-right wing who firmly believe:
1—With $100 million dollars, Al Gore is responsible for bribing virtually the entire scientific community worldwide and most of the world’s governments to push the hoax of global warming. He’s even managed to start rapidly melting the world’s ice sheets and clear Montana’s Glacier National Park of most of its glaciers. By 2020, Gore will have the park ice free. And it’s so unfair. Gore’s $100 million is such a vast sum that the worldwide fossil fuel and energy industry with income of nearly $40 trillion per year is utterly powerless to resist Gore’s devious hoax.
2—The Earth is somewhere between 6,000 and 9,000 years old. All the old dinosaur bones, the nuclear decay rate of carbon 14, all the other evidence of deep time was just put there by a loving creator God to confuse us so we, the children He so adores, will be condemned to eternal agony in the fires of Hell.
3—Despite a massive chain of fossil evidence leading back from the most complex organisms alive today through logical steps of development stretching back 3.6 billion years to the simplest prokaryotes, life in all its diversity sprang forth fully formed in 2 days.
4—Even though there is no evidence of such a flood, only a few thousand years ago, it rained for 40 days and the ocean levels rose 5 miles till the waters completely covered all dry land including the 29,029 foot high peak of Mount Everest.
5—Despite the chain of evidence that he was born in Hawaii, Barack Obama’s Kenyan parents faked all that evidence when he was born in Kenya in 1961; because they somehow knew back then he would need that chain of evidence to serve as President of the United States.
6—Despite being at the bottom of the developed world in healthcare outcomes, behind even some third world countries, and paying far more per capita than any other nation for the poor healthcare we have; we are the model system the rest of the world would be smart to emulate. And Obamacare really does have Death Panels in it.
7—The Iraq war was well worth fighting. Our only mistake was to leave. We should still be fighting there.
8—We can defeat a strategy (terrorism) with an army. Armies are great at killing ideas.
9—The Framers of the Constitution thought corporations are people even though today’s publicly traded corporate legal structure did not exist when they were writing the document.
10—Sarah Palin, Herman Cain and Michelle Bachmann all are imminently qualified to serve as this nation’s Chief Executive Officer.
What do you call the alternate Alice in Wonderland world where such notions are strongly believed despite the evidence they are not true?
