The Republicans use resentment and create the image of people living on the dole - immigrants, minorities, women are thrown in as people who really should stay home and not compete. Those emotions are strong, combine that with well crafted lies, or lies that make them feel good, add the culture around them filling in details and confirming and there you have it.

To get out would be to reject your culture and way of life, and admit you swallowed lies and were duped.
