Why Are Conservatives Angry? Because the President Wants to Anger Them.

One more point to add to yesterday’s piece about how Obama’s style fuels Trump’s rise . . .

Another big reason Republicans are angry is because they have a president who embraces a political strategy of deliberately and consistently enraging conservatives. Major Garrett detailed the White House’s calculated effort to be controversial and provocative in 2014:

This is the White House theory of “Stray Voltage.” It is the brainchild of former White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe, whose methods loom large long after his departure. The theory goes like this: Controversy sparks attention, attention provokes conversation, and conversation embeds previously unknown or marginalized ideas in the public consciousness.

Mickey Kaus characterizes the approach as “gaslighting” — giving your opponent a legitimate reason to get angry, then turning around and pointing to their anger as evidence they’re unhinged, obsessed, incapable of governing responsibly, et cetera.

The first charge levied at King George by the founders

. . . The opening two sentences (of the Declaration of Independence) are two of the most well-known sentences of any document of antiquity. They are known worldwide. Students of history and government know them well. The reasons these two sentences we penned are also known on a global scale. King George III of England ruled the colonies with an iron fist. He taxed them heavily but gave them no voice in English parliament. He housed British troops in the colonists’ houses to suppress any idea of revolt of English rule. He used these troops to intimidate the colonists. He took natural resources at will and brought them to Europe to use at his will without due payment to those that reaped them from the earth. Food, lumber, cotton, gold were all taken without due payment and left the colonists with no recourse to collect payment.

What’s not so well known, are the charges levied at King George in the Declaration. There were 27 specific charges of which those that signed their names to it thought were so severe, so incredulous, so disparaging they were willing to sacrifice their livelihoods, their fortunes and even their lives to throw off the ‘evil’ of King George.

Six Principles Of Propaganda Lenin Used To Consolidate Power

Having attained power in late 1917 on a raft of promises — land to Russia’s peasants, bread to Russia’s starving cities and peace to Russia’s World War I-weary soldiers — V.I. Lenin was able to dispense with every one of them by advancing civil war from 1918 to 1921 to justify his acts by crisis.

In place of promises of liberty and rights, Lenin gave Russians propaganda, empowering the Bolsheviks to govern through knoutish messages, if not the barrel of the gun. In so doing, he sought to undermine Russia’s weak democracy and to transform society fundamentally.

“The Russian Revolution was permeated with propaganda of a forceful and brutal kind,” wrote historian Dmitri Volkogonov in his 1995 “Lenin: Life and Legacy,” based on materials briefly available from the Soviet archives.

The propaganda was used not so much to win people over with ideas but by bludgeoning them with coercion, repression and making examples.

Obama To Rolling Stone: Climate Change Is So Terrible I Dare Not Tell You The Full Truth

I’ve just watched the latest Rolling Stone video on climate change featuring an exclusive hour-long interview with President Obama – and I’m scared. Really scared.

The first thing that scares me is what it says about the decline of journalism generally and at Rolling Stone in particular.

Can this really be the same magazine that launched Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which employed Lester Bangs, Joe Klein, Joe Eszterhas and PJ O’Rourke, and which gave us that OK-ish Cameron Crowe movie where the autobiographical hero never got to sleep with Kate Hudson?

And oughtn’t Rolling Stone to be trying to raise the bar rather than lower it after the appalling fiasco of its UVA rape story reportage?

But the thing that ought to scare us all far more than any of the above is the insight it offers into the terrifyingly desperate lengths to which President Obama and his fellow travellers are now prepared to go in order to advance the green agenda.

Blacks’ Dilemma With Obama

Election of our nation’s first black president is delivering an unexpected message to our black population.

Blacks are discovering that what a man or woman does — their actions — is what matters, not the color of their skin.

It seems ridiculous to point out that this was supposedly the point of the civil rights movement. Purge racism from America.

But blacks themselves have been the ones having the hardest time letting it go.

It is not hard to understand why black Americans were happy that a black man was elected president of the United States. It was kind of a final and most grand announcement that racism has finally been purged from America.

But for the highly politicized parts of black America this was certainly not the only message. Because for the highly politicized parts of black America, the point has always been to keep race in American politics.
