So first off, I'm not American which is why I posted this here. I am also left wing so there is a decent chance I may be conveniently be missing some obvious left wing examples of the things I am about to bring up.
My first point is obviously Trump. Every president has lied, some more than others, some less serious lies and some more serious. But Trump tells literally dozens of lies a day between his twitter and his press conferences/public appearances. The volume of these lies isnt even the bad thing, it's the content. He tells such easily single-Google-search disproven lies that it is mind boggling and obviously dangerous just how many people believe every word he says.
Then I would move on to my (limited) knowledge of American domestic news media. Now I have seen sensationalist headlines from places like CNN and MSNBC, but never have I seen an example of pure untruths being spouted than on Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlsons shows: another two people whom a majority of American conservatives seem to believe wholeheartedly. I literally cannot think of a left wing equivalent to those knuckledraggers but again, my knowledge here is limited. Even John Oliver's show, as left wing as it is, is thoroughly sourced whereas the former shows are just pure speculation and often promoting hatred for political opponents.
Then on to where I think the biggest disparity between sides exists: social media. On the right you have got Ben Shapiro and Stephen Crowder; two losers who script debates with college freshmen to look smart. Not to mention the multitude of lies they tell in their debates just to try and win a point (Crowder being especially guilty of this).
Then you've got Charlie Kirk, Candace Owen's and the rest of TPUSA. I looked through Kirk's twitter today and as far as I scrolled back I couldn't a single tweet that didnt either promote political hatred or tout straight up conspiracy theories and blatant un-truths.
Also I know he is Canadian but you also have Stephan Molyneux, a white nationalist who frequently comments on American politics with his nonsensical "philosophy" to the adoration of his followers. Then you have dozens of smaller accounts, like gun-girl promoting similar "liberal hatred" and just random total lies.
If you asked me in 2015 about these people I would have considered them obvious actors who know the shit they are talking are lies and are smart enough to profit from them, but since seeing Donald Trump up close for 4 years and realising he is actually a genuine moron, I wouldnt be surprised of most of these people are the same.
I just cannot think of anyone remotely as influential on the left who tells the same kind of blatant lies on the same scale. The American leftists I follow mainly consist of Sam Harris and John Oliver but honestly I cant really think of any others that are majorly in the spotlight like the conservatives I have mentioned. Again, this is why I feel I may have a serious bias based black spot in my knowledge so I am absolutely open to discussion here.
Edit: I'm not replying to anything anymore, there is well over a thousand comments and life is too short. I learned a good deal in this thread for sure and I thank everyone who was civil and took the time to explain stuff to me.
A big shout out though to the dozens of commenters calling me a pig, scum, a Maoist(?), delusional, a retard and a piece of shit in an effort to prove to me that the right isnt a machine of hate that is taught to hate those with opposing viewpoints.
