Sorry Trumpkins, you HAVE been brainwashed

How Fox News Became a Language

https://www.theatlantic.com/culture/archive/2020/09/fox-news-trump-language-stelter-hoax/616309/

Remember: When a bully accuses you of something, their simply deflecting their own views of themselves, be it a secret desire, subconscious insecurity... or in this case, the relentless pursuit of ratings. 

"They want to steal your liberty, your freedom. They want to control what you see and think and believe so that they can control how you live. They want to enslave you to the weak, dependent, liberal [Trump] victim ideology to the point that you will not recognize this country or yourself."

10 years ago, I would have said that's got to be a joke. Now, I'm not so sure.

3 almost 4 years ago it was a joke, now it’s a bizarre actual reality for some.

Perhaps we need a conspiracy theory that voting for Trump is actually a vote for Biden, mess up the conspirators heads.

Clever people these antifas being able to train small animals to attack. Trumpists will have to train birds to defend against such attacks. I don't think they are up to it.

To be honest, I'm not sure just -what- they do. Whoop, I assume. And it was strongly hinted they get people sacked.

Those fuckers are sly, too. They hide up in trees and fall on you. You have to watch out for the dropmøøse around here.

How Fox News Became a Language

This was one of Gingrich's innovations. He created a language, really just a vocabulary, and trained his Contract With America crowd to just repeat it endlessly. Fox News cottoned onto that.

It was based on Goebbels' Big Lie, repetition.

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_lie

My point isn't about technique but rather history.

A moose bit your sister? How much of her was left to bury?

History repeats.

Sadly it’s just at the end of a lifetime for many who witnessed the horror and the lessons that the rise of fascism provided.

Here we are once again allowing the lies to be told.....unchallenged .

My father fought in the Dutch underground before joining US Forces retaking Italy.

If he were still alive he would be just one of the many outraged that all he fought for was for nought.
 

Indeed he was one of many that would just a soon put a bullet into a fascist that say hello.

That the fascist is now an American?Well let’s just say it’s perhaps a good thing he is no longer alive.

I think it was not. Most of Europe is politically very stable. It's a shame that the country of most of those men who fought mostly for the the freedom of others, because they believed in a better world, is since decades increasingly going down the drain. Power mongers and people glued to their political positions never help a county, they only help themselves.

Roger Ailes is quoted as having said, "Don't tell people how to think.  They will see that as talking down to them.  Tell them how to FEEL."

If you watch FOX, and now CNN and MSNBC, you will see this formula used all the time.  And since fear, anger and hatred are all powerful emotions, that's what the focus on making you FEEL.
