How to win the debate.
So you think your a master debater young republican? If your so smart why is the liberal media/Hollywood/dirty hippie winning?*
Democrats are nearly ubiquitously perceived – key word, “perceived” — as anti-racist, loving, un-selfish, generous, peace-making and unfailingly tolerant of all religions and all cultures. When conservatives outnumber liberals 2 to 1 among the electorate, and yet liberal views have achieved such dominance that they are perceived as dominant even in private settings, then Republicans are not only losing the propaganda war, they are all but missing in action.
—“The Five Biggest Reasons Republicans Keep Losing the Propaganda War” Kyle-Anne Shiver
She does a good job, but goes off the rails:
With a 150-year bombardment by academia promoting the theory of godless evolution — pure Darwinism
Kyle-Anne, PROTIP: You sound like a loon with the “godless” talk.
America has many different faiths. Many of those faiths want nothing to do with the drek pushed by the left and Hollywood. Spitting on them is why they don’t listen. Talking like Fred Phelps won’t win you friends. Reach out to different faiths and calm down when people say they like Harry Potter, or Lady Gaga. Many “hippies” and “freethinkers” grow out of it and/or want what’s best for their children. Shoving your version of Christianity in their face doesn’t convert them, it makes you a dick.
Point the second: never argue with pop culture.
Back to the boy wizard. How much effort is spent on hating popular culture and being a loon?
It’s wrestling with a pig, you both get muddy, but the pig likes it. What drives most of pop culture? Money! Take that 3D
Crapfest movie “Avatar”
Avatar make boatloads of it..but something happened. People realized that Avatar was just “Dances With Wolves” in space and the story (minus the special effects) was shit. It was a slap in the face to the military (backhanded of course) and the irony (high tech 3D movie about living like a naked primitive).
James Cameron may sleep on a pile of money, but no one takes him seriously. Al Gore’s movie bombed and now as the truth comes out he looks like a loser. No pickets, no protests, no crazy rants and they went down like a snowman in the sun. And these guys are two of the most “godless” figures in the left.
Our goal (those of us who like technology, freedom and bacon) is to expose their dumbassery.
For every uptight conservative caught in a wide stance, we need to expose enviro-nitwits who use more power than a small town to power their houses.
Point the third: FEAR!!1!!1
She forgot the fear. Lefties can smell it, they run on it. They eat it up. Vaccines will give you autism, according to Jenny McCarthy and some dumbasses who’s work has been proved false. The left spread that lie. Leaving the rising cases of measles and whooping cough for the rest of us to clean up.
From 9/11 to returning veterans to lightbulbs…the left spreads fear, uncertainty and doubt, . We need to fight fear with humor and facts. Point out that the natural bullshit they keep pointing to is bullshit.
Ronald Regan was the master at this. Drove the lefties nuts.
He also said:
The personal attacks against me during the primary finally became so heavy that the state Republican chairman, Gaylord Parkinson, postulated what he called the Eleventh Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. It’s a rule I followed during that campaign and have ever since.—11th Commandment (Ronald Regan)
The right wing establishment seems to think it’s 1980 or 1970. They think that the “silent majority” will always be there for the beltway boys. So they attack the tea party and neglect the blogosphere. Ronnie’s spinning in his grave. The left has hijacked the print media execpt for National Review and a few other mags. Even Rush Limbaugh’s online. The Tea Party was successful because they organized online and offline. Blogs are outside of anyone’s control. That’s why the left uses blogs (they drink their kool-aid) and hates ours (we like tea and are sick of taxes).
“You couldn’t have a starker contrast between the multiple layers of checks and balances at 60 Minutes and a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas”. Dan Rather authorized journalist, career cut short by guys in their pajamas
We need to use blogs and those internets. Old media is old, and played out and under the left’s thumb. The future belongs to e-readers, bloggers, youtubers. Not using new media is like riding a horse to work because those horseless carriages scare you. Rathergate came from the blogs. Not the print or tv media.
Point the fourth: The left hates a fair fight, an unfair fight or any fight where they start to lose.
“…the guerrilla wins if he does not lose. The conventional army loses if it does not win….” — Henry Kissinger
The Daily Show (like most leftards in the MSM) works because Jon Stewart thinks he can have it both ways. “I’m commenting on serious business….um..the truth?…um….no wait I’m an entertainer….” Let’s show that asshole that he can’t.
The left likes to think it’s the uderdog. Sorry Jon Stewat et al. You are the establishment now. Fox News is the underdog.
Fox news works because the American People got tired of being told they were the cause of the world’s ills. Then Fox sold the Iraq war and went into the tank for George W. Bush. Fox got better when they went gaga over the Tea Party. Just as the Tea Party was being ignored by the media. They covered and gave voice to a real grassroots movement.
The left’s answer? A hissy fit.
Threats and name calling. How dare they give ordinary average American’s time to complain about how the left is wasting their money and participate in the political process. One congressman actually tried to pass a bill cutting government funding to Fox News because of planed cuts to left gov’ment programs. But Fox News needs those ads for the army and PSA’s from the Dept. of Homeland security (okay maybe not those).
And lastly: Keep an open mind (but not so open your brains fall out).
While some would try to say that everyone in DC is a happy family.
Bullshit. Gunwalker! Job killing regulations! Bomb throwing (verbal and in the 60’s actual bombs) Leftist agiprop in our schools! The USDA dinner plate!1!1!! Remember the new tone? It was a trap to lure us. Silence dissent by labeling it hate. Unlike the past 10 years where ordinary Americans were called every nasty word in the book.
It’s a beltway thing, those in power love to be in power. They hate the outsiders.
We can be nice when they no longer try to run out lives. Let’s actually try to win this thing. Every time we try to be nice, the gloves come off.
Old media is their tool. Blogs and the web are ours. Let’s see how they like our community organizing (oh wait…they don’t). When we organize, we want to be heard. When the left organizes, they break stuff.
We need to smile, laugh, and shout from the rooftops that we are not going to listen to the lies anymore. Stop watching movies and TV shows that are left-wing crapaganda. “Soulja Boy” recanted when his dumbassery was exposed. If you are going to call out the pig, take him out of the mud. Stop with the hysterics, or better yet use humor. Organize on the internets. Or use the truth, the left hates the truth.
*yes, it’s “You’re”…suck it Grammar Nazi’s!
