"The Media is the enemy of the people." is a lie. We know it.. But why does Trump repeat that lie..

.......over and over again. ...........????

Joseph Goebbels said, "If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth." And who was Joseph Goebbels? He was Hitler's propaganda expert. Therefore, Trump is using an idea that Hitler used in ruling Germany. And, Trump is indeed saying that over and over, and he will continue to say it over and over...And that is why..... He got the "over and over" idea from Hitler....pass it on....

1. He needs to keep 35% of Americans duped as the shit is coming for

 

him and his family. Wait until he advocates armed responses against our law enforcement people and DOJ people.

That's when GOP will have to decide to protect our country or a piece of shit sitting in the whitehouse.

6. Keeping his base duped is correct. No matter how large that base is. If it is 30 percent

than they need to be duped. You are correct also that the GOP is at some point going to have decide, Trump or the U.S.A. It was the same with Nixon. Then the GOP chose the U.S.A. I do not know what it will do this time. No one knows.

8. What you said is indeed sad, but if that occurs, maybe, just maybe, the followers

will not commit violence. Maybe, they will reject that....maybe

3. It's not just Trump

The GOP politicians and the entire right wing noise machine has been applying this technique for decades.

We knew what to do with Hitler's troops.

But somehow we've forgotten how to treat Nazis since then.

14. L'etat c'est moi

The free press is his enemy, and in his tiny mind, HE is "the people." Nothing and nobody else matters.

15. It is part of his game plan. Keep repeating what you want your audience to take away.


He (they) use a bunch of tactics designed to brainwash, normalize the abnormal and overwhelm with a constant blizzard of craziness. One thing after another wears you down eventually. You just get tired of resisting. (Well, WE do. The base cheers his nastiness.) So it is a whole playbook of tactics to inculcate the message, wear down your resistance and make it all seem normal.

One of tRumpís Central messages is to distrust the media. He has been at this for quite a while now so we have our work cut out for us if changing people's Perceptions is the goal. The base has been carefully groomed and even taught to distrust their instincts that something is wrong. People who understand how brainwashing works can go a long way to help us know how to retrain thinking so they will listen as alarm bells are going off all over the place.

If you are an expert on how to break through to the brainwashed and misled, your help and expertise are needed NOW more than ever. You may say well who needs the base? WE do. The stupefied and compliant zombies who support tRump need to wake up and get off that crazy train. As long as he can generate an audience of willing participants, it makes the job that much harder of stopping tRump and ultimately, Putin.

16. Yes, it his game plan.. One of the ideas that is deep inside the base..is "hate"

Trump appeals to those who hate .."the media" But it is more than the media who report the truth. It is hate of minorities who are struggling for equality. It is hate for those who stand up and repeat the truth. And this hate exists to deny whatever truth there is.
