fear monger- one who uses fear to leverage the opinions and actions of others towards some end
By this definition, the term "fear monger" is used correctly to describe the topic's originator. What we should ask ourselves is, "what is the intention?". In politics, fear mongering is sometimes used(especially of late) to gain support for an agenda which would otherwise be unpopular. So, by posting facts about things going on in the world which will affect us all yet go largely unreported by mainstream media, what is the poster's agenda?
If fear is what it takes to wake people up in this town and this country, monger away, my friend.
I just wanted to let everyone know that Everman's is sponsoring viewings of the new documentary film "Food Inc." at the Gulf Breeze Cinema 4 this weekend, September 12-13. All tickets are $4.00. Hope to see you there!
