My favorite scary but silly right-wing propaganda ever is still “Chevy Volt Runs Out Of Juice In Lincoln Tunnel.”
1) I say silly to contrast with deadly propaganda that tries to start wars, etc., or toxic conservative propaganda that tries to make people hate Muslims, blacks, Hispanic or poor or sick people, public schools, government, Europe (especially France), etc.
2) The Volt’s gas engine kicks in to charge the battery when it runs low — something that is hard to even notice. The car certainly didn’t stop in the tunnel or anything like that.
Second is the scare that “electric cars are a fire hazard.” As compared to cars that have big tanks full of gasoline!
Question: Why does conservative propaganda so often line up with things the generate profits for oil companies, Wall Street, or other billionaires?
