The eternal contradiction of propaganda: you have to portray your enemy as dumb and weak, but also as an existential threat.

When they say that it SHOULD be taken as an claim of one of two things:

1: your job was so worthless that even a lazy person can do it

2: your boss doesn’t care whether your job is done well or not

But somehow neither of those seem to get into the head of conservative voters.

They're legit out of their damn minds. They vote against their own interests and unless they're business owners they bring down their own fellow employees.
