How to talk to MAGAs - another great discussion from Teri Kanefield

Teri Kanefield is becoming one of my "must-reads" for her insight and applicable ideas. I first became a fan after reading her posts about the "Firehose of Outrageousness" strategy employed by Trump and why it works.

Today, she posts some great information on talking to MAGAs. Well worth a read and follow.

Key points:
- A lot of MAGAs are high in authoritarian personality traits - fearful, and desiring "order". RW media keep them in a continuous fear state, so they desire authoritarian leadership to feel safe.
- Facts don't matter, confrontation makes it worse.
- When you talk to them, try to reduce their fear and sense of "otherness". The goal is to deactivate the authoritarian impulse.

Glad to see we're on the same path. She is getting a lot of good attention. Information ages fast on DU, so reinforcement is always useful.
