Is it Possible to Reach the Right?
I had a conversation with a man at work today and mentioned, in passing, Occupy Wall Street. Despite many areas of agreement between the two of us, he launched into a tirade about ACORN and SEIU paying homeless people to protest. This man is a born again Christian and a devotee of right wing hate radio, but sometimes, he makes sense and since he is looking at hard times economically (he is a contractor for the company I work for, not an employee), I thought he might respond favorably to mention of Occupy Wall Street. Nope. Does anyone have any ideas of how to reach someone like this? Is there any somewhat-right website that has moments of sanity? I wanted to send him this article from Alternet, but decided that it would damage our relationship irreparably.
Any ideas? We are speaking to the choir, here - any ideas on how to heal the insane?
