Watch The Brainwashing of My Dad to understand how Trump supporters have become the way they are. Its free with ads on Amazon.
You might be interested in the documentary The Brainwashing of My Dad which is free to stream if you have Amazon Prime. I thought it was one of the best documentaries I've seen the past year.
>The Brainwashing of My Dad
>>A filmmaker explores the radical change of her once Democratic father to an angry right-wing fanatic after his immersion in talk radio and Fox News. She discovers this to be a powerful phenomenon that has divided families across the nation.
> I just read a thing the other day, it's called firehosing. You just create so many issues that it's almost impossible for one to be focused on.
It's way beyond that, it's brainwashing people.
You know they fight in the Middle East over how to interpret the same book for a thousand years? That's the kind of pattern Putin is doing with Democrat vs. Republican. Get people into a hate and not see that they are fighting over nonsense. How to read The Bible and Quran, day after day, hating over it.
Except in our case, it's fighting out everything and anything to ignore the truth that the greedy billionaires have too much power in the USA. Rupert Murdoch, one such billionaire, is brainwashing people all around you, and we just keep acting like that's normal. No, it's not normal when millions of people around you live in an alternate reality caused by Bible media or Fox News media or Trump Twitter media or a certain subreddit media.
"Huge parts of our population live in a separate reality created by Russian media,” says Raul Rebane, an expert on propaganda in Estonia, where a quarter of the population is ethnic Russian. “This makes consensual politics impossible.”
There was a DVD edition briefly in 2006 that had them.
Edit: This had the theatrical cut, there're also editions for Empire and Return
Today I watched the movie The Brainwashing of my Dad on Amazon. Holy shit. It was amazing. She draws a very clear picture of right wing media, the influence of AM talk radio and Fox News and how it has affected people in this country. I highly recommend it.
Trump is an easily-debunked FWD:FWD:FWD email from Grandma come to life.
Watch this documentary, it is free with ads on Amazon. It perfectly explains how these people are made.
The Brainwashing of My Dad
> In their mind they have no reason to, they are financially comfortable and everyone else can just fuck off to them.
I found this on Amazon by accident looking for a different documentary...
I find that it helps explain the mentality. It doesn't fix or change anything (except for the guy who they changed, and his entire family and all of his friends I guess).
Check out The Brainwashing of my Dad.
If you can get them to stop watching Fox and listening to Right Wing radio for several weeks/months, the effects can be reversed.
A filmmaker explores the radical change of her once Democratic father to an angry right-wing fanatic after his immersion in talk radio and Fox News. She discovers this to be a powerful phenomenon that has divided families across the nation.
That documentary is perfect for you then.
It's available to stream if you have amazon prime:
I'm in the same boat dude, my dad has gone off the deep end.
Unfortunately he can't be talked to. And when this is all over the 65,000 arrests don't happen, etc etc, he'll just move on to the next conspiracy.
A lot of the craziness we see is the direct result of media influence. Everyone who wants to know more about the Republican mindset and why so many older people suddenly seem to become ultra-conservative conspiracy theorists should watch The Brainwashing of My Dad. It's free on Amazon if you have Prime. Definitely worth the watch.
I'd troll her, hard.
>"How does it feel being part of the Russian conspiracy to manipulate our democratic elections?"
ESPECIALLY if they're of the age to remember the Cold War, "Duck and Cover", the McCarthy hearings.
I'd start calling Trump "Putin's Bitch" and referring to "Moscow Mitch" every chance you get.
Also, Amazon Prime Video has a great documentary on how the modern "conservative" movement was formed to promote the concerns of international corporations, and how they used the media to sway American voters.
Doubt they want to see the historical roots of FOX News (scum from the Nixon administration), and their part in "the vast right-wing conspiracy" (really just international corporations like Koch Bros, etc. fighting taxation), but it could be eye-opening to you and DH.
This film covers it in detail: [link]
Well you'd be surprised. It's actually one of the things the creator of the documentary "The Brainwashing of my Dad" did and it made a huge difference in his mental health. If you haven't seen it, it's available on Amazon Prime: https://www.amazon.com/Brainwashing-My-Dad-Matthew-Modine/dp/B01C6AFEQG
For anyone doubting the truth of this person words: https://www.amazon.com/Brainwashing-My-Dad-Matthew-Modine/dp/B01C6AFEQG
If you have Amazon Prime it is free to stream, otherwise it's available the usual places for a few bucks.
The Zeitgeist is hyper tuned to Russia, almost to the point of whispers. You can feel it walking around public places. The Coehn/Trump Klan is the wedge and hammer tactic. Plant an idea, make it up, whatever.. then just hammer it on Foxic (rhymes with toxic) News for a few weeks, see if it sticks, then put another wedge in. This is Putin's strategy to split this country. Watch Brainwashing Dad (FREE on Amazon with ads)
If you want to better understand how Fox News and right-wing media can turn folks into angry right-wing fanatics, this is a great documentary to watch:
Best of luck to you!
This is just plain wrong. I actually have DVDs from a limited release they did (I think in 08) of the original Theatrical versions. People act like they straight don't exist but they are just very rare. But you can bet if those DVDs exist then Lucalfilm/Disney has digital copies somewhere
In case someone doesn't believe me, here is it listed on Amazon: [link]
Lucas did release the theatrical versions on DVD. Here's a box set that contains both versions, but I remember getting the single DVDs from Wal*mart for a lot cheaper.
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
These types of frequent comments serve to cast Trump as unintentionally evil. That he is mentally deficient and just accidentally serves Russian agenda week after week. And constant one-line parroting about his personal mental illness avoids the topic of social media addiction, widespread in early commentators on this subreddit, and Fox News media influence upon millions - of which Trump is just one of many in the White House who worship the media cult of Rupert Murdoch.
Trump has always preferred to live in media reality. Howard Stern show, Oprah, paid-for political content in newspapers, etc.
I highly recommend the documentary "The Brainwashing of My Dad." It's about how right wing media transformed the filmmaker's elderly father from a caring Democrat into a fearful, angry conservative. It tore the family apart. However, they were able to change his media habits and revert his personality, like he snapped out of a fever dream.
It's on Amazon Instant, and it's a fascinating look at how right wing media operates and how it affects its consumers.

This is not the first time they released a box like this (meaning the content+design), so they might again in the future. The original price was $215 during pre-order.
The only official collection of Ghibli movies is the Hayao Miyazaki Blu-ray box from Amazon.
Anything else you find is an illegal bootleg.
An Isao Takahata Blu-ray box was released in Japan, but it has not been released in America.
Fox News is a fucking cancer and I have no idea how we can cure it. Luckily younger generations watch less TV, so hopefully it just dies with the Boomers.
Edit: See if you can get your dad to watch the documentary "The Brainwashing of My Dad". It's on Amazon Prime.

Did you read the studies? The Right is falling for the fake news of Fox. 4 out of 10 think that negative news about this admin is fake. They can't even take the president being criticized and are shooting it down. Nobody is perfect, there can be negative things that are happening. That's how the Kim Jongs like their news to be though, about them being perfect. And that is what the cult of Trump is becoming. They are literally just making stuff up.
Plus, you have have Donald Trump literally lying as well. So if you believing Donald, then going to Fox to get your news, youre even more so not getting real information.
Of course though, if you believe your news is real, you think the other news is fake.
I try to read a lot of different news outlets domestic and foreign (I really should be working more haha) and the majority of news outlets, big and small, are reporting negative things about this admin, because they are happening. Fox seems to be the only one major news outlet that is trying to obfuscate facts and mislead.
You're right about brainwashing, there's even a documentary on how Fox news brainwashes people.
If you don't want to watch it, here's an article with the documentarian:
Check it out, it strikes so many chords with me and is eerilly similar to how my Dad changed over time. He was never a liberal by any means, but over time it's turned to a burning hatred. Last straw was when he straight up told me (a social science high school teacher at the time) that Critical Thinking was liberal brainwashing. I just feel like I can't connect to him on any level after that.
It was pulled from the Japanese Miyazaki box set for that reason. It was made available as a free bonus disc with proof of purchase, but only while quantities lasted, and I imagine the print run has been exhausted by now. That distribution decision is probably the reason it ended up being omitted from the Amazon-exclusive US equivalent of the Miyazaki collection too. I'm not aware of any official (licensed) US home video distribution of this short.
I don't think it was pulled from any museum exhibits, though, and AFAIK it's never been shown as a short there.
Unfortunately, please get more conservative as they age, &, well, this:
I understand the boredom and wanting to listen to something.
I will not do talk radio
The Brain Washing Of My Dad is an interesting documentary on Amazon Prime.
A woman's father goes from a life long decent guy to a hateful anger fetishist listening to talk radio on long car trips.
Years later after retiring his radio breaks and his wife asks the cable guy to remove Fox News. His personality started to return to normal.
Talk radio is simple inculcation.
No thank you.
Yup. Check out a documentary called The Brainwashing of My Dad. It is on Amazon Videos. Fox has been designed to be fucked up.
A Ghibli BD collection doesn't exist. Due to several companies owning the rights to individual films. The closest you'll get is The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki. [link]
It has 10 of the 22 "Ghibli" films. No other English BD collection exists, if you see anything it's a bootleg.
You can always independently buy the BD of each film. Currently the Disney licensed ones are on sale at Costco for $18 each.
PSA: Amazon deal of the day is LoTR extended edition Blue ray is $26 on amazon normally it is $120.
You can watch it free with ads on Amazon: [link]
Check out the documentary “The Brainwashing of My Dad” on Amazon Prime. It obviously has a POV and political angle, but it’s very similar to the situation you’re dealing with w/ your mom. It’s also on Tubi for free.
I heard this movie helps with dealing with people like your dad. The film maker had the same experience you're describing and made a movie about how she dealt with it to get her Dad back. [link] Good luck, there are way too many people in this situation.
It's fake b/c Japan has never released a Miyazaki BD box set. Only America has, as an Amazon exclusive. And the back of the BD box is written in Chinese, not Japanese.
Did she buy it off that site Taobao? Like the other user said, Taobao is a Chinese eBay on steroids, most items aren't legit or "fell off the truck" if they're supposed to be "brand name". If she was looking for a Chinese release and bought it from Japan thinking it was reputable, it's still flagged as fake b/c Ghibli films are released by Walt Disney's Taiwan division and Disney's logo/ownership isn't shown anywhere on the box.
Also what are the 14 films? Even the Amazon release only has 11 (all his Ghibli ones + The Castle of Cagliostro). The Castle of Cagliostro has never been licensed for a previous legal release in China either; so its odd that they would get it just for this release. So what are the 3 other Miyazaki movies?
The best I could make out from the back is Whisper of the Heart (7th one down with yellow text) which Miyazaki did not direct. And the last two listed, I can't make out at all.
The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki (Amazon Exclusive) [Blu-ray] [link]
I'm saving up to buy the ultimate set on amazon but ohhhh man it is gonna be annoying to sell one of my vital organs. These movies are magic and each one has a piece of my mind and soul. Did anyone hear Hayao is not actually retiring? :)
There is a great movie on Amazon Prime called The Brainwashing of my Dad its about this
They released a dvd set of the OG trilogy that has 6 disks, 3 are the "enhanced" ones and 3 are what I'm pretty sure are the original ones. So unless I'm mistaken, there are copies left that aren't VHS or whatnot.
Here's a link to that specific version (which costs a ton now) where the top review mentions that it does contain the original versions:
*Edit: What's sketchy is that the amazon listing merges several box sets together, and only the blue one with Luke & Vader clashing is the one that contains the OG versions.
Canadian Amazon but it ships to the UK. Only issue is that there's no chance of getting the lithiograph or poster but if you're not bothered its a good way to go
Most definitely a bootleg set. I fell for it once and bought it, they were pretty bad. Watchable but bad...
Here is a legit set: [link]
It's a little pricey but totally worth it. I personally bought them one by one as they came on sale, but if you want a collectors set that one works. Do note that it's only Miyazaki movies. Wish they had one for the whole studio...
I've just looked at Amazon, the blu-ray is there for less than $75? The DVDs would be even cheaper and that's not even counting used
I think the complete blu-ray collection of Hayao Miyazaki is the best Christmas present!
I had this one on an Amazon list for Christmas a few years ago. I like it, watched all the movies and didn't notice anything missing. I'm pretty sure there was bonus content on the discs too, bonus scenes or outtakes.
I know it seems like it should cost more for 8 discs, but the cost of blu ray is coming down as digital becomes more popular.
> most of the (Fox News) viewers are super successful people and smart in business. It’s amazing to watch.
Dude, WTF are you smoking? Don't confuse an exceptionally high viewership among the elderly with "super successful people and smart in business". Elderly people are notoriously fearful of any change and distrustful of minorities, so they like Fox News because it feeds these fears and distrust and tells them they're right and everyone else is wrong.
This is not something "super successful people and smart in business" crave. This is what your racist uncle craves, and just because he grew up in a better economy and has had longer time to save and invest doesn't make him "super successful people and smart in business".
It just makes him old, fearful and bitter with a better retirement account.
You admit though, that your dad really fell under their spell after he had a stroke, so you're saying that in his weakened, debilitated state he found himself more mentally susceptible to the Fox News messaging?
You've proven my point.
To understand, watch The Brainwashing of My Dad, it's free on Amazon Prime.
The Game Changers
The Brainwashing Of My Dad
Might not be exactly what you're looking for but the documentary The Brainwashing Of My Dad hits hard.
It's available for free on Amazon with ads or ad free with Prime
Wow that is great to know. This is what I was going to buy:
You're saying that the disks will be 4k but the digital copy isn't? I was planning on using the digital download so I wouldn't have to bother with the disks/a disk player.
That is like asking why people start to smoke or continue to smoke. Even though it is expensive, disgusting and causes cancer, they're addicted.
If you ever have time, watch The Brainwashing of my Dad.
I highly recommend this movie. You can watch it for free here:
The subject of this movie got better. He had to go to the hospital for a couple of days (I forget why), and his wife unsubscribed him from all of the crazy emails and signed him up for ones that were more positive. When he came back he didn't even miss them, and a couple of months later he himself was like "wow, I was really crazy and mad all of the time".
I realize that won't work for a lot of people, but it seemed to work on him.
But you're not alone. And hopefully once everything calms down, a lot of these folks will, too. Good luck to you!
Sadly, that has been all too common of a story and you're not alone.
I don't know if this will help you any but maybe give this a watch, it's a documentary called "The Brainwashing of My Dad," it's about how the filmmaker's father became radicalized by Fox News and other right-wing media and how she got him back. You can watch it for free on Amazon.
I know there's a Blu-ray set exclusive to Amazon, but there's also a single-case, multi-disc DVD set.
It's a touch expensive but you look at the price for buying all 8 of these movies on BluRay individually, and it's cheaper in the long run. I pre-ordered it, but if you're patient you can catch a good deal on it. A few weeks after it came out it was down to $199.
If you do want to check out the films for yourself, start with A New Hope but I recommend to look for the so called "limited edition" on dvd.
Like this one here, but don't order it off of Amazon. Just get it from a local movie trading store, you can call them and ask if they have a limited editon in stock. (My local store sold Empire Strikes Back limited for $17)
It's a long story but the director, George Lucas, messed with the original theatrical versions with crappy CGI edits. It's a nitpick with some scenes, but others are ruined by the updated scenes. That's why alot of people don't recommend watching any new version of the original trilogy until the un-edited version is finally released. (Disney, get to work on it!)
This sounds eerily familiar to the recent documentary The Brainwashing of My Dad. It is streaming free with Amazon Prime.
Yeah, it’s on a huge sale for $50 right now. We had Amazon points saved which brought it down to $20 in the end. Still, this is a $120 set so I’d definitely snag it!

For anyone that went looking for where to stream this, it's on Amazon Prime: [link]
I don't know these movie websites don't say that or link to it, ever.
here's a permanent option that's cheaper than a few months of a streaming service
You can get all three on Blu-Ray for like $60 on Amazon.
when they re-released them in ~2007 as individual movies not just as the box set the first disc is the remaster BS and the second disc of "bonus features" are the untouched theatrical releases i have them and love them, if they would do that again for blu-ray would re buy
but i dont want them damn recut shits
this is the version i am referring to [link]
[link] You're in luck, it's in 4k. A bit steep in price though but it's LOTR after all.
The blu ray edition has the extended editions and extras (like deleted scenes and interviews). They also make a great holiday gift for anyone who is a HP fan.
It can be found on Amazon
Does this set come with everything like that? Is it the full package?
>A filmmaker explores the radical change of her once Democratic father to an angry right-wing fanatic after his immersion in talk radio and Fox News. She discovers this to be a powerful phenomenon that has divided families across the nation.
Rogan's kids are going to have to make a sequel to this film when they grow up.
I completely understand where you're coming from, but if you had the chance to censor Jim Jones and save the population of Jonestown, would you pass because of free speech? It may be a leap to go from Jonestown to Vax denial, but not a huge one. Intervention is always going to be a gray area.
I got the idea for clipping the AM antenna from this doc:
The Brainwashing of My Dad | Prime Video >!Woman's father goes from a 2 on the angry scale to a stark raving 10 due to a talk radio addiction. The radio breaks and they just never replace it. He eventually settles down to more manageable 5 on the angry scale.!<
BTW, I think your down votes were unfair.
The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (The Fellowship of the Ring / The Two Towers / The Return of the King) [link]
I highly recommend it. It included a lot of brilliant segments that were cut out of the theatre version, like Tom Bombadil
In 2006 the unaltered OT was released as a DVD bonus disc, here’s an Amazon link if your interested [link] you could also find them on eBay, and I should be coming out with part 5 soon so keep a look out
Well do I have news for you, in 2006 the unaltered version of ANH, TESB, and ROTJ was released as a DVD bonus disc for each film here’s the Amazon link Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope [link]
The 4K and blu-ray each have their own issues with picture quality, but the blu contains the special features.
have him watch this https://www.amazon.com/Brainwashing-My-Dad-Matthew-Modine/dp/B01C6AFDM6
He's deep in a misinformation bubble and thinking it's being informed. He either needs to turn the disinformation off entirely, or learn to question literally everything they say and look for the fact checks. His bubble tells him fact checks are lies, so the latter won't work most likely, but at least exposing him to how he's been brainwashed may work.
Rupert Murdoch does, actually.
You should actually probably watch the short film titled The Brainwashing of my Dad if you’re interesting in the effects of the media on a large segment of the population.
Yes, I got that one a few years back, this is the link:
Holy moly it's gotten expensive! Hopefully there are places you can get it cheaper than $180
Here's what I bought. Are you in America by any chance?
It took a fall in the snow while my father was visiting my sister in colorado. He refused to go to the doctor out there and waited until he came back home(california) He went immediatly to the ER with my wife right when he walked in the door, he lived with us. Back pain and a broken rib. Pain wouldnt go away. 3 ER visits later, they finally discovered he had cancer in his spine. All this was after he refused to follow up with his nuerologist who had already diagnosed him with alzheimers and dementia a year earlier. Once he was in a position that he could no longer take care of himself, I became his POA and the Fox hate machine stopped. He passed away in April 2021. I would like to believe that he passed without all that pent up anger and hate in his head from all the years of propoganda.
Heres a good documentary that might help
Respectfully disagree. There are plenty of loving individuals that get sucked into the far-right sphere and become different people. I don't think anyone was born with an innate hatred other people, certainly not 47% of the adult population. It's something that's conditioned into them. https://www.amazon.com/Brainwashing-My-Dad-Matthew-Modine/dp/B01C6AFDM6
I've also been in an abusive relationship. If Trump started out telling people "our enemies are going to come into your neighborhood and burn down everything you love" no one would've voted for him. Just like an abusive person throwing punches on the first date. The core psychology is the same: letting your emotions overrule your reasoning. There's nothing rational about sticking with an SO that hurts you, there's nothing rational about supporting Trump.
Here you go.

I just bought it on bluray so I didn't have to worry about it bouncing from service to service, fixing to do the same with the four seasons and the two MHA movies.
I think that's definitely part of it. But there's a part of me that thinks he's also had his brain warped by the Right Wing media machine over the past 10-20 years. Sort of like The Brainwashing of My Dad.
It comes with both. Sold out everywhere here in New Zealand at the moment. I managed to get the hobbit trilogy 4K release in the mean time.

Thank you! Do you suggest that I just get the standard copies for right now? I just want to read the whole series for the first time! With regards to special editions, I might just wait until the entire series comes out for each house, since I'd like to collect the Ravenclaw ones someday! What about movies? What should I get, the Blu-Ray discs? I did a search and there's an Amazon blu-ray film set for $39.99 (this one), but there are also some other links with blu-ray sets as well, but they're quite more expensive (this one, for example). So, what's the best one to buy? I'd love to collect all the movies in high quality, with extra stuff/extended editions if possible. Thank you for your help about the books! Have a wonderful Holiday season!
If you can get your hands on a theatrical release, do it. You can poke around online to find the "despecialized editions" that fans have put together or you can purchase this: https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Trilogy-Widescreen-Theatrical/dp/B001EN71DG
Both of those options might be more trouble than they are worth.
