watch this if you can, it's one of the best assessments/analysis of liberal argument tactics..


code words.... wow that really blankets what we can say and not appear racists to the liberals, who ironically used to be the biggest defenders of this type of bull shit.


bill maher "Clarence Thomas doesn't represent 95% of the black people" ... that's patently racist.

as someone who continues to question obama's truth about his past, i have had racist pointed at me repeatedly, even on this forum.

a reminder of the Alinsky rules for radicals, the subject of hillary's college thesis. Chicago is an amazing incubator for libs and radicals, even domestic terrorists.

  1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
  2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
  3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
  4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
  5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
  6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
  7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
  8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
  9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
  10. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition." It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
  11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
  12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
  13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

I don't see what's necessarily "radical" about these rules. The right can be shown to have followed all of them at one time or another. I guess liberals aren't the only ones to have studied Alinsky.

What you did there is called a "reversal." Delinquent teenagers use it all the time.

You're right. I have all those thinking errors. But I know how to control them or to use them properly.

I watched the whole thing. There are many things to discuss but here's one observation. Notice how the conservative was ordered to be quiet when the professor spoke. Notice how the host and the professor never let the conservative finish a point without interrupting him.

Of course not, that's just another example of RWNJ stupidity. Yeah, yeah, I realize "RWNJ stupidity" is a bit of a redundancy.

No argument there. Meanwhile, the other guy is an expert at gobbledygook.
