messaging, MAGA style


A lie can travel around the world and back again while the truth is lacing up its boots.Mark Twain.


I believe that the QGOP cult has been so effective at brainwashing people to vote against their own interests because they are adept at planting seeds for conspiracy theories. In recent years the GOP has understood that with the social media platforms they can do this very well.

Here is a recent example in this thread

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142931411

where a Florida congressman tweets that Nancy Pelosi and CNN were in cahoot to orchestrate some kind of propaganda operation on the floor of congress.

Of course, it was totally false, and that congressman later deleted the tweet quietly.

Meanwhile his followers saw it, some retweeted it, etc..
You can bet its now part of the MAGA lore that Nancy Pelosi and CNN are up to no good. These people will never see the debunking.

The GOP knows that and uses this method very effectively. I am not sure how we combat that.

1. It's reached the point that decent people everywhere must treat these worthless traitors

 

with the contempt they deserve. It won't be to sway them--they're unreachable. It will be to reach anyone witnessing it. Those people who don't want to make waves and go with the flow. Make the flow be holding contemptible people in contempt.

It starts with each of us.
