I Got The World On A String


Jonathan Fletcher, a retired WASP (White Anglo-Saxon) male, was driving his new Lexus listening to Rush Limbaugh. No matter what the left wing drive-by media reports, he believes El Rush-Bo’s concise analysis cuts right through their liberally biased anti American agenda. Jon relies on Rush to always use facts to fortify his beliefs. The ultra right wing toxic cocktail radio mixture of Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage tides Jon over until he settles down after dinner to watch an evening of Fox (Faux) News. Needless to say, he was ecstatic when Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election.

Jon has done quite well for himself. The retired widower of 20 years comfortably lives in an upper middle class bucolic suburb of New York City.  He is a loner, surrounded in his isolated bubble by a few right wing politically like minded friends and associates.

Both Fletcher children are college educated and married with exceptional careers. Mimsy, his Medical Doctor daughter is married to a well respected lawyer in Florida. His son Christopher is also married and is the Founder, President and CEO of a successful Silicon Valley Tech firm.

*******

Jon has signed up for a summer “Survivalist Camp.” He consumes copious material from far right wing websites to remain updated and prepared.

That’s the playbook tactical blueprint of the right wing. They micro target older male caucasians like Jon with right wing laced patriotic rhetoric. You know, same technique: Liberal or Conservative - Shit in - Shit Out.

But who is  Jon Fletcher?
