Response to Auggie (Reply #8)

39. They think it conveys sincerity and strength.

They want to trigger two emotions in their base - fear and anger. They are focusing on the reptilian hind brain response to a threat and ignoring those of us who can use our more evolved frontal lobes.

The feigned outrage was designed to make people who react emotionally rather than rationally fearful and angry. And position themselves as the ones who have the strength to combat and conquer the threat.

They use what the psychologists in their think tanks know works very very well. Fortunately for us, it works on a subset of the population, not everyone.
