The National Nervous Breakdown, and How to Exploit it Ruthlessly

From the Daily Caller, from last week:

I'm going to add some italics for emphasis.

New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor said Wednesday that she knows people who are "still in therapy" over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s election loss to President Donald Trump.

...

"I think the intention of [Hillary Clinton's deplorable] book was two things. One it was to really, I think just vent and get it out there. Because there are so many people like Hillary Clinton who are still writing about this, who are still thinking about this, who are still in therapy, frankly. Sources I know who are still really upset about the election," she said.

Alcindor also said that Clinton represents everything wrong with the Democratic Party, and said voters are still "reeling" from Trump’s historic upset.

"Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of all that's still going wrong with the Democratic Party, and what they need to get through. So I think Hillary Clinton, I don't think is opening any new wounds here,” she said.

Oh my, look at all those floridly emotional, mental-unwellness-signalling words.

Video at the link.

I've repeatedly noted that half of the country is clinically insane, driven mad by the election of Donald Trump and the blow to their own egos, their sense that they are the Masters of the Universe and control their fellow countrymen, producing daily neurotic spasms on Twitter, and are virally infecting normal people with their toxic mental derangement.

(Don't comment on old threads -- the system automatically bans you, thinking you're a comment-spammer.)

Okay, let me talk about how to exploit that, or how it will do its own exploiting for us.

In the old days, the media liked to pretend that it was conservatives who were super-crazy-ideological, and that liberals were not even liberals at all, they were non-ideological and non-partisan creatures, who only reluctantly engage in politics, only compelled to engage with it at all by their deep inner goodness to do what's best for everyone.

But not political. Oh dear, not that.

You may remember when conservatives objected to being identified as a "conservative advocate" by the media, whereas the out-and-proud liberal they were squared off against was identified only as "an expert" in whatever policy field they were debating.

Obama pretended to be non-ideological and non-partisan, despite being rabidly ideological and ruthlessly partisan. He was forever painting those disagreeing with him on policy for being "political" in their thinking, whereas he, you see, was just thinking rationally and lucidly.

You know the pose: Some say we should kill every single Iranian man, woman, and child by launching 10,000 nuclear missiles at them without warning. Some others say we should sign over to Iran the entirety of the US gross national product. I dismiss the extremists on either side -- I say we merely give Iran $150 billion, as well as a go-ahead to build their own nuclear missiles.

There's a reason the media and left-liberals-who-don't-wish-to-acknowledge-they're-left-liberals do this. It's because people -- most normal people, anyway -- have a deep suspicion of politics and politically minded people.

If you can paint your opponent as political, while fighting him nail and tooth while pretending that you are yourself not political, you've taken a massive first step towards persuading an audience, because the first thing you need to do to persuade someone is seem "relatable," and basically Just Like Them, and as they themselves like to believe they're non-political, you establish something more important than logic and reason can when you pretend to match their personality and emotional state.

You don't like politics? Why that's so funny-- I don't like politics either! Now that we've established that we both are kindred spirits who don't like politics, let me tell you about my plan to convert the US into a single-payer health care system!

The media, and Democrats, wage a remorseless war to paint anyone who isn't an extremist left-liberal -- as they are -- as being "political." Not at all like Jake Tapper and Jim Acosta, who are just truth-telling crusaders for Goodness and Honesty.

In other words: They relentlessly Otherize their political opponents.

This is why every protester at a left-liberal march is depicted as Just Like You. You know the drill -- "Grandmothers. Teachers. Firemen. Welders. Whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians. Most of them had never even thought of attending a political rally before, but [X left-liberal political claim] had finally drawn them out to the streets to make their voices heard..."

They deliberately depict the left-liberal protesters as demographically broad as possible, so that as many readers as possible can look at the description and think: Oh, that's me. These people are Just Like Me. I should agree with them!

Meanwhile, ever protester at a conservative rally is depicted as weird, intensely political, heads all filled with bugaboos, hang-ups, and #FakeNews. The media also deliberately claims that these people are as demographically narrow as possible, to make sure the smallest possible segment of the audience sees any of themselves in the crowd. They always claim conservatives are entirely white, and will actively forge video to erase black people out of gun rights marches.

With the Tea Party, there were two storylines about economic status: Half of the news stories depicted Tea Partiers as "just the rich" (and hence, Not Like You) and half of them depicted the Tea Partiers as "largely unecucated and poor" (again, Not Like You, and in fact, your Social Inferiors).

The people writing the first Narrative never bothered reconciling their stories with those writing the second Narrative. No media editor ever got the two competing Narratives to share the same story so that the report was, "People from all economic strata came to the Tea Party protest against Obamacare..."

No, it was just the very rich and uncaring, or just the very poor and easily conned, and in all events, it was only old, white people of traditional sexual roles who probably didn't even like rock-n-roll or boobs.

This is a very potent method of propgandization. Most people think they're swayed by reason and logic, but most people are wrong, and do not know themselves very well at all. Most people -- including those who are the most insistent that they are Independent Rational Thinkers -- are swayed more by emotion and the feeling of belongingness in a group.

Propagandists -- political consultants and the media -- know this.

And so they ruthlessly paint their enemies as Not Like You, while presenting themselves as Just Like You.

And one very important factor in the Not Like You/Just Like You propaganda rush is to claim that The Other Side are Too Political, and therefore Not Like You, while Our Side isn't really political at all, we're all just rational folks who want what's best. You know -- Just Like You.

So here's the problem the left (and the NeverTrumper fringe, who are now in a strong alliance with the left) has: While for years they followed standard propaganda protocol and pretended they were almost entirely non-political, they have now decided that The Moment Is Too Vital to pretend any longer, and have decided to out themselves as ferociously, obsessively political.

And that's contrary to their own career interests, as well as to their own propganda-efficacy interests.

In the old days, if the media pretended to be impartial but then leaned a story to favor their left-liberal buddies, most normal Americans wouldn't really notice the bias. They'd view the media as trustworthy, and not really all that political (Just Like Me!), and they would buy the bias.

These small pushes are more effective than aggressive shoves, because small pushes can be subtle enough to pass undetected, whereas aggressive shoves are obvious and clumsy -- and people get their hackles up when they realize the nightly newscast is nothing but a 30 minute political ad. (And people hate political ads.)

ESPN used to cover, you know, sports, and by doing so, their viewers would form a para-social relationship with the hosts. (A para-social relationship is the feeling of having some kind of rapport with someone you don't really have any relationship with -- it's an unavoidable sort of thing, because human beings are used to thinking they know someone if they see them, because, for 100,000 years of human history, you really could not see someone's face without actually coming into close contact with them -- familiarity with someone's face and voice tricks the brain (wired for pre-technological life) into thinking there's some kind of actual human connection. Trust me, for a while, I kinda thought I "knew" Bradley Cooper.)

And then, if that host made a snarky aside about Republicans, the viewers would think, "Hey, I like this guy, and he made a funny snarky comment about Republicans. Boy, Republicans really are dicks, aren't they?"

But again, it's the subtle aside, the pickpocket's light-fingered touch, that works. Not the pedal-to-the-metal obvious-on-its-face full-spectrum propagandizing.

That pushes people away.

It's weird. It's obsessive.

It's Not Like Me.

People don't like to feel like they're being had -- and the minute you get clumsy and impatient in your con and let your mark know you're conning him, he's not a mark anymore. Now he's an enemy.

I could go on and on, obviously. But you get it. They have decided themselves to no longer wear the mask of Just Like You, but instead to show their true face of Not Like You.

They live in a bubble and the only people they know or listen to are also showing their Not Like You face, so they don't think this is abnormal. After all, if all of my #SmartSet friends are signalling how intensely, weirdly, obsessively partisan and ideological they are, it must be a good idea, right?

Pro-Tip: No, not if the people you think are the #SmartSet are actually profoundly stupid and currently mentally unstable.

Diversity and Comics -- a YouTube critic of Marvel's descent in nonstop political propaganda -- has noted that comic books used to be a fairly "happy" and "mainstream" hobby and diversion. Maybe not entirely mainstream, but mainstream as far as the nerdier edge of mainstream.

But now comic books are -- like the media, like ESPN -- constantly engaging in weird, Not Like You angry political propaganda for all sorts of weird, fringe obsessions -- like pushing grossly obese super-heroes because hey, you're healthy at any size.

Oh the anger! I used to counsel readers not to show anger when attempting to persuade someone, because you have to match your emotional state to the target's as the first step in persuasion.

But the left is angry -- insanely so -- and needs you to know it.

And it's weird. Not Like Me at all!

They're alienating their audience -- and shedding their audience by the thousands -- not just because the audience disagrees with their politics. That's part of it, sure.

But they're losing readers because a lot of their audience just doesn't really think of themselves as one of those Not Like Me intense partisans always nattering on about fringe political issues.

They're turning themselves from "relatable" -- and therefore worth giving a fair hearing to -- to very unrelatable and weird in their single-minded obsessive political propagandizing.

The media used to know this -- a woman's magazine would mostly just serve up beauty tips and celebrity interviews, and just slip in the occasional "Republicans are weird" message.

Now they're pushing, in almost every issue, the Not Like Me idea that teenagers should have anal sex and that women who don't consider "trans women" to be women are not women themselves.

But they've forgotten. Or, more likely, they've just gone so insane they don't care what actually works as far as propaganda any longer.

They're now just engaging in primal-screaming public displays of hyperemotional venting -- and they don't care that this is Not Like Me as far as their audience is concerned. A lunatic who thinks he's Napoleon knows the hospital staff disagrees with him about his Transitioning to a French Emperor, and thinks he's weird and senseless because of it.

But he can't stop himself from identifying his pronouns as Bonaparte, Bonaparteir, Bonapartem, because his psychological deformity crowds out any reason.

The daily Twitter freak-outs are toxic and psychologically damaging for those non-insane people who have to deal with lunatics on a daily basis, but they are very good indeed for us, the normal people, the Just Like You crowd (or, at least, we're Just Like You in comparison to these maniacs).

They're destroying themselves, and sabotaging their own propaganda operations, because they're just too crazy to think or care about such things any longer.

And I gotta tell you: I love it.

Destroying the media is a thing to be dearly wished for -- but watching them destroy themselves is tons better.

They're now Othering themselves, and I think that's just fine.

People don't want to associate with weirdoes -- and now that they've decided to fly their freak flags proudly and put their Full Metal Weird on display for the world, I can only sit back and cheer.


Trigglypuff vid added because a commenter brought it up -- it's a good visual for what I'm talking about.

Who is Just Like You -- Trigglypuff, or the normal looking girl giving her the side-eye, and Some Black Guy (it's his YouTube name) goofing calmly about it?

The media has gone Full Trigglypuff -- and you never go Full Trigglypuff.

Some Black Guy is worth the subscription, by the way. His reaction to the freakout over PewDiePie is worth a quick watch.

Oh, and I call this picture, "Hi, don't you feel an immediate admiration for and kinship with me and wish to emulate me in all my life choices and political dogmas?"

Point of order, they weren't driven mad by the election. They were mad from before. They are freaking out now because we are escaping from their dungeon. They were calm psychopaths as long as we submissively sat in their dungeon, but they were always psychopaths.

However I highly doubt that NBC would ever allow him on the show today to let him perform.

That's all it really takes, just little reminders. There was an old communist party dictum in movie writing. They said "don't write the whole script commie. Just have one short piece, one small scene, one minute commie." People get it in small bursts and get used to it after a while.

That's a good approach for us. Be cool, funny, normal, interesting, entertaining, and... once in a while remind people what freaks the left are.

I think they get a lot of people on board because they present the weirdos as victims, and supporting them as a social responsibility.
That's why the LGBT activists presented SSM as love.

The stumbling block has been transgenders, since they are too weird and demanding to be perceived as simply victims. Losing the support they had with Obama (they knew he would ram this down middle America's throat!), the masks started coming off. Weird + angry + violent doesn't sell. And as that post at the Federalist said: OK, now I'm even questioning my support for SSM because of the transgender craziness.

Now they're pissed that we said no to their advances and they're going to start boiling rabbits. Because to them it's our fault that we can't understand how their pro-rape approach is okay because they love us sooooo much and know what's best for us since we're inherently not as smart as they are.

that can be done by all of us. Don't say 'undocumented immigrant,' say
'illegal alien', etc.. Most of us probably already do that, but it's a
small change if you're not.

173 Great post, Ace.

I tend toward pessimism about the future of Western Civilization, but I do make an effort to note positive things.

I've long thought that there's at least the possibility that the left is sowing the seeds of its own destruction. It may be that leftists were more dangerous when they were less honest and direct--when they claimed to support speech, for example.

That was always a lie, but many people believed it. At least some of those people have to be re-examining their assumptions now.

when you hang out with people online, that's not really para-social, I don't think. If you're interacting with people, even if through remote electronic means, that's an actual relationship, although not a close-proximity one.

181 On October 7th, 1996, Fox News launched. It actually gave Conservatives ten or more seconds without interrupting their Point of View with specious arguments and detractions that I started listening to Conservative Stuff.

It was immediately attacked.

When I started listening to Rush Limbaugh, (as entertainment), in '92 I laughed and "Got His Point", but I wasn't sold.

It wasn't until I saw the media outlets attack Fox as an outlier that I actually understood "The Bubble". I understood the "Not Like Me" Borg for what they were.

I'd like to thank Rush Limbaugh for paving the path to light defeating darkness.

I'd cursed at God for my own imperfections, loudly.

227 "para" as in "adjacent to" or "somewhat like."

>>.How can that even be considered a relationship, though?

well it's not, but you feel that way -- people like actors they've never met just because of the sense of the actor they get from film roles or interviews.

People feel like they "know" someone they technically don't. In a way, they do know *something* of the person, but they don't really know the person.

But people kind of feel like they know strangers just because, as I said, the brain isn't used to seeing someone close up on TV and not actually "knowing" that person.

I mean, let me put it like this: Who hasn't felt disappointed and even a little betrayed when discovering that some celebrity one's a fan of is actually a rabid, toxic, lunatic lefty?

I have. And yet, I have no real reason to feel that way. But I feel like a friend has misled me, and hidden from me his awful side.

I had that happen with James Roday from psych six months ago. He pumped out some rapid TRUMP RUSSIA!!! tweet, and I felt steamed and used. Like, I've told everyone to watch Psych, and now he pulls this shit on me?

It's not rational, but the brain feels like anyone it's "hung out with" for a while, even if only on tv, is kind of a friend, in a way.

231 It is a relationship pretty much between two human beings if it engenders feelings in the other (Comradeship, romance, loyalty, hate- whatever.)

So I would more argue that some interactions on the net are relationships and some aren't.

(This is an arbitrary definition of my own, so YMMV.)

I would say that a lot of the interactions here are relationships (chiding Ace for his carpentry and tool knowledge, ATC for her height, NG for being a dentist.) Once you know the people well enough to pick their comments out of a lineup, it crosses that boundary.

The MOmees are attempts to forge a stronger relationship, not create one. It's a healthy part of being human- the formation of tribes of like minded individuals.

236 These small pushes are more effective than large pushes, because small pushes can be subtle enough to pass undetected, whereas large pushes are obvious and clumsy -- and people get their hackles up when they realize the nightly newscast is nothing but a 30 minute political ad. (And people hate political ads.)

I basically ignored politics until Obama took office and a few months later I started noticing all radical kinds of things he was pushing for. In the 2012 campaign, the MSM's behavior (think Chris Matthews and Candy Crowley) started to really frighten me. Yes, the current "wokening" is their doing, although from their perspective, they woke people in the wrong direction.

I wonder if part of it is because they are all trying to be "different" "edgy" "counter culture" or whatever word they want. And so they've gone and gotten the pink/purple hair, the tattoos, and the additional piercings. And that might have been the end of it. But that's no longer different enough. It seems like everyone and their mother has a couple tattoos and maybe extra piercings. So they're no longer different, and since that is what their psyche needs, they snap and go to crazy town.

when a captain is aboard a ship, who is not the actual captain of the ship, he is given the convenience title of "Commodore," because only one person on a ship may be called captain.

I think this also applies to higher-ranking officers on the ship but not captain of it -- so when Kirk (an admiral at the time) was on the Enterprise in the first star trek movie, maybe he was called "Commodore."

Based on the Women who have been in my life... I'd say that estimate is low....

As a female, I blame feminism for the majority of that.

Women are told they MUST have it all: an important career, husband, kids, friends and an active social life that does, of course, include charity work. As years go by, add in take care of aging parents.

Personally, I don't think it can be done, but lots of women buy into it, try to do everything and are miserable.

>> So "commodore" is sort of an honorary
>> designation?

It has a long history and various meanings. The basic, oldest definition is a senior officer assigned to command more than one ship. Ie a group or "flotilla".

It's also a rank in some navies. For a brief period in the early '80s, the US Navy called the rank of 1 star admiral a "Commodore Admiral". But they hated that.

There's a long history of "rear admirals" in the US Navy. Congress was always stingy in the old days about making too many admirals, and there's some funny history there.

The division was "upper half" and "lower half" rear admirals. At one time all rear admirals got two-stars, no matter if they were tops or bottoms, and that pissed the Army and other services off. One star generals didn't like it, and two stars didn't like these Bottom Rear Admirals running around with 2 stars.

no not really. It is to avoid confusion about who the actual captain is. No one on a ship may be called captain, except the ship's captain. Other people holding the rank of captain get called "Commodore" while on the ship.

It's because captain has two different meanings: One is a rank, the other an important job title. You can only be called captain on a ship if your job is to actually be captain of that ship (the job title of being captain).

If your rank is captain, that's just your rank, not a statement that you are in command of the ship, so you are called commodore so no one misunderstands you to be the actual captain of the ship.

344 I got to wonder, getting back to the topic, if things would be different if the left had backed away from the crazy a few years ago. Think 2013... the left literally had everything. Obamacare... Obama... gay marriage... cultural supremacy. What if they had just decided it was enough and just behaved like gracious victors.

But, instead, they had to have moar. Gay marriage wasn't enough, they had to bully Christians into baking their gay wedding cakes, and making their gay wedding floral arrangements... even host gay weddings in their homes.

It wasn't enough that they controlled all the power in Government and Culture, they had to humiliate conservatives, drive people from their jobs for holding the wrong opinions, sterilize the campuses of all non-leftist opinions.

And, for a while, it seemed like they could do exactly that. And they loved it. They loved being the bullies. They loved the power to humiliate their opponents.

And, of course, the left-wing activist organizations couldn't just disband and find real jobs. They had to push the envelope, so they adopted the transgendereds as their new cause.

But if they had just backed off and just enjoyed their victories, they wouldn't pants-crapping, writing "F**K Trump" on the wall with their own feces insane right now. And maybe Trump wouldn't have happened.

The history of "rear admiral" has to do with a big fleet, with all the ships arranged in the "line of battle". The head of the whole fleet was the Admiral, his second in command was the Vice Admiral, and the third guy was the Rear Admiral.

And that was because he was stationed on a ship near the rear of the line. The big admiral was in the center, and the Vice Admiral was near the front. The Rear Admiral was at the rear.

I think Lord Admiral Nelson was "only" a Vice Admiral at Trafalgar. But I'm not sure. That was the actual rank. He was in command of the fleet.

Actually, an Army or Marine or Air Force officer with the rank of captain will usually be called "major" on a ship. Those ranks of captain are O-3, the equivalent of a naval lieutenant. The rank of navy captain is O-6, the equivalent of full bird colonel in the other services.

On aircraft carriers, you will have several officers with rank of captain. One will be the actual captain of the ship. THe XO will usually be a captain rank as well. As well as the CAG, the air wing commander, who will be a captain as well.

And usually you've got an admiral on board as well, commanding the group.

nah. The commander of a group of ships has to be on one ship, which he usually isn't captain of, because his duties are coordinating and planning for the several ships. He will have offices and staff on one ship, but that will be run, usually, by a captain in charge of that ship. (And just that ship.)

So when he's on that ship, even though he's a superior to the captain, he's not in fact captain *of that ship,*, and so will be called commodore when on that ship.

I'll continue to pray for you because brilliance like yours is rare. Even here. From a guy who has performed in front of crowds who have taken him down.

That's nothing. The actress Glen Close did a nationally televised commercial about ten years ago with her schizophrenic sister that stated a stat that 1 in 6 people were diagnosed with a mental illness.

Of course the severity was never mentioned, but still that's awfully scary to think about. And how many others need help and aren't getting it? Besides everyone on the Left, that is?

Personally, I'd like to see a mental evaluation of all political candidates made mandatory prior to allowing them to run for orifice, the results of which would be made public, including any and all medications currently prescribed. Just so we have a better idea of whom we're voting for.

Proving he should stick to science on TV, deGrasse pompously botched history: "Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, signed into law in 1963 - a year when he had important things to be thinking about - the National Academy of Sciences."

yes, he was actually Royal Navy, and appears in uniform in several movies, including The Spy Who Loved Me.

Fleming gave him the same rank and background he himself had -- as a commander in naval intelligence in WWII.

Fleming proposed some commando ops, some of them, I think, rejected as too outlandish.

And then he started writing books about a naval intel officer who goes on outlandish missions.

" England expects that every man will do his duty."

That was the last signal Lord Admiral Nelson sent to the fleet at Trafalgar.

He originally wanted to say "confides" -- England confides -- but that would've had to be spelled out, so he allowed the substitution to "expects" for which there was a code.

He meant it in that say. England is sure, confidant, that every man of this fleet will do his duty.

ANd then he got his backbone shot through.

408 344 I got to wonder, getting back to the topic, if things would be different if the left had backed away from the crazy a few years ago. Think 2013... the left literally had everything. Obamacare... Obama... gay marriage... cultural supremacy. What if they had just decided it was enough and just behaved like gracious victors.

But, instead, they had to have moar. Gay marriage wasn't enough, they had to bully Christians into baking their gay wedding cakes, and making their gay wedding floral arrangements... even host gay weddings in their homes.

It wasn't enough that they controlled all the power in Government and Culture, they had to humiliate conservatives, drive people from their jobs for holding the wrong opinions, sterilize the campuses of all non-leftist opinions.

And, for a while, it seemed like they could do exactly that. And they loved it. They loved being the bullies. They loved the power to humiliate their opponents.

And, of course, the left-wing activist organizations couldn't just disband and find real jobs. They had to push the envelope, so they adopted the transgendereds as their new cause.

But if they had just backed off and just enjoyed their victories, they wouldn't pants-crapping, writing "F**K Trump" on the wall with their own feces insane right now. And maybe Trump wouldn't have happened.

ANyway, I got an e-mail entitled "Hello from Mum". I knew some Brit had helped her send that e-mail. She wasn't too proficient back then. She actually typed the thing, but her helper had to compose the subject and send it.

As enlisted flight crew, we always wore a zoom bag and our name patches had our wings over top our names and abbreviated rank. From a distance regular ole enlisted aircrew wings look a lot like officer wings. Usually they'd salute and being the kinder and gentler jarheads we were, we'd return the favor and then politely correct them.

We had to wear the the garrison cover and O's wore the piss cutter so the grunts knew who to salute before they got close enough to make the distinction. Lotsa pissy grunts....

You use every bit of that "Cheerleader Shit" and blow peoples' minds with your brilliance.

When I say "You're funnier than me.", it is not acting in a demure fashion. I like to kick ass and take names on stage. Comedy is a competition.

You have enough Human Nature alongside natural brilliance to be wary, yet ebullient with legal clarity to shine, Brother.

Your quick wit and clarity is nearly immaculate.

I emit "The Silly", often to disguise my non-educated 'takes' for those who would rather enjoy linguistic acrobatics rather than learned, solid knowledge.

You, Sir... are the embodiment of knowledge that I crave.

I used to think that as boomers started dying off the left would take complete control After all millenials are all lefty cunts.

But I'm starting to see some glimmer of hope for Gen Z (or whatever they're called). The post-millenial generation seems a lot more sane. Maybe not necessarily conservative, but at least not fucking insane.

And I'm seeing this myself. I know several 20ish year olds who I've been shocked to find out have pretty right-ish views on the world. And even when they disagree, they can understand the opposing view and not react like these millenial snowflakes have been for the past 10 years.

Even lurkers get to read the people here who are "just like us" who also say "are you f'ing kidding me, that is nuts". The left has been able to somewhat mute some of the others (al la hot air & it's facebook wall) but not here & not entirely on twitter.

If Hillary could survive Lewinsky without kicking over a lantern and burning down the White House, and losing to a cold fish wannabe preacher born engineered by the Chicago political machine, then she can, and will, defy Father Time for four more years, even if that means Huma needs to begin spiking her morning coffee with formaldehyde rather than whiskey.

Sometime in the late 90's, early 21st century, I think. It's used more as term for a teen culture, now, rather than the music it stemmed from.

613 Yeah my crystal ball's in the shop but Hillary running again would be a long-shot at each stage of the game. Depending on events, of course, the general might be completely beyond any Dem's reach.

Meaning Trump could be re-elected by a very thin margin, since most Dem voters are tribal, stupid, racist, ignorant, and/or self-dealing - oh, or insane. So regardless of how well Trump does, it won't matter nearly as much as, say, it did for Reagan's re-election.

It's all disconnects. Dem voters from reality (as long as it doesn't directly affect them - then they howl and go nuts), GOP incumbents from intelligent policies and the wishes of their voters, the media and pop culture from a huge swath of the populace. Very hard to handicap it any more.

626 I think "The Cure" can probably claim the most annoyingly whiney fanbase over the 1980s / early 1990s though.

627 No, "illegal alien" is better. Foreign national is correct, but ambiguous, since one can have legal status, or not.

blaster I'm almost allowing myself to believe that the Mueller idiocy will indeed blow up, to encompass the astounding surveillance story. Almost.

But recall: there is no press, there is barely a GOP/WH "party" in the Beltway, the judiciary (and most of DOJ) are not professional, have no integrity, and get to play to an unbelievably dumbed-down populace (the only sort that wouldn't laugh/jeer the whole Mueller investigation concept into oblivion from the get-go).

Oh, Sessions mumbling and mewling in Portlandia about "sanctuary" crap. I am at the point where I think nobody in the administration actually understands how the government works, how appropriations work, how Congress exercises its control over policy. And they are pretty dim, or don't care, about their immigration/rule of law agenda. Because they've done almost nothing about it, despite many tools sitting there on the table in front of them, and the political wind (more like a gale) at their back.

628 Bth, I agree somewhat. MBV ended up being very influential, however.

629 Wow, I didn't realize that Janis Ian won a Grammy for "At Seventeen".

630 510,
"What does "emo" mean?
"


To me it's Goth-Punk music IFAIK

The look and the emotions remind me of the 50s "Beat" scene and all the girls in the 60s who loved/self-identified with Sylvia Plath. And that would be where the music of Janis Ian back then comes in.

632 Excellent post. Long-time conservatives/independents have had to tolerate the subtle onslaughts of leftist propaganda and resist being a boiled frog for decades (for me since Reagan was in office). Now with the full on crazy attacks it's the conservatives and independents who are becoming "woke" in that, hey, these people who I thought were fairly normal but leaned left actually see me as an enemy now, and want to shut me up and knock me down. The leftists are now becoming "unwoke" and living their life in a nightmare of their own making.

When the MSM decided to show how antifa was a bunch of "normal" people like you and me, and were all about peace and free speech, and then apologized for and justified their violence - I saw that as the jumping off a cliff event for the liberal bubble world. Even Pelosi saw that as a political mistake (and she's insane) and denounced antifa. (My stupid Republican Rep couldn't do it though - pathetic, swamp rat jerk off.)

Step back and take be calm, then get the popcorn and enjoy the show - it's not going to stop anytime soon. Thank you CNN for leading the way. Don't stop. Don't change. Go! Go! Go!

633 Another fantastic essay, Ace.

I'd swear your work history includes time in academia.

Posted by: Weak Geek at September 19, 2017 10:27 PM (VQjk/)

634 I know the thread has now deteriorated to a valuerite off topic slugfest, but I'm coming in at the end to tell Ace this:

This is a brilliant analysis.

I've watched and read you for years. THis culture we've had shoved upon us is confusing for those WHO DO understand cultural Marxism.

You just hit it outta the park. When I see you someday in person I may lick your......

638 Excellent essay.

"In the old days, if the media pretended to be impartial but then leaned a story to favor their left-liberal buddies, most normal Americans wouldn't really notice the bias. They'd view the media as trustworthy, and not really all that political (Just Like Me!), and they would buy the bias."

Someone has no doubt already pointed this out above, but the old propaganda was so effective for the media because if they were ever called out on it, they could use that as an opportunity to further otherize their opponents. "You're accusing me of bias just because I've labeled you a denier and the other guy a scientist? Only someone who is intensely partisan and political would think that's evidence of bias. Wow, you really are a nut job!" The very act of fighting back became proof that you were Not Like Us.

640 If I may -- they've gone from 'Not Like You' to 'Don't Like You.' Any guesses about the next step?

641 I just realized that Brian Stelter is actually Triggly Puff. S/he/it has just taken off the wig, and put in contacts.

That explains a lot.

642 My God, even the Nazis kept their mental s*** together all the way to the Nuremberg trials and the gallows.

The craziness of the current left is truly beyond the pale.

644 Ever think progs got it in their head they're inside the five, first and ten, already ahead by a blowout score and can't lose? So why not practice your radical on the clock rather than just for practice?
Then this. They outsourced the work to big children and it got all cartoonish on them.

645 The much shorter version - and has always been the case - keep feeding the left rope.

It takes time. It takes patience. But keep feeding them rope.

Eventually they will hang themselves.
They always do.

647 Occasional visitor: Hope I am not announcing something that is already known here. I recommend Sharyl Attkisson's The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, And How You Vote. It gives chapter and verse of exactly what you are describing here.

Good work and thank you.
