FUND RAISING, THEIRS AND OURS

I could never be a Progressive. I don't think I could stand all of the shouting. The other day, one of the Twitter accounts I follow posted this:
One of my followers had signed me up for progressive caucus emails last year as a joke and I wanted to show you how they speak to their base:

And then she included a couple of screen shots of one of the e-mails she received.

Holy crap:

Part 2:


meme 20211203 00-2.jpg

I've given money to conservative organizations, some of which fund raise rather aggressively, and I've never seen anything like this.

The requests for money I've gotten were, in many case, quite annoying. They've begged and pleaded for money, made outlandish promises, even included little gifts, did a lot of guilt tripping and fear mongering ("if you don't send us piles of money, we're all going to die!"). Maybe fund-raising has changed over the past decade. Does everybody do it this way now? After reading that e-mail, I feel like I'm on the battered end of an abusive relationship. My meth-addicted boyfriend is shouting at me and threatening me with bodily harm and mayhem.

It's like I'm collapsed on the floor in a corner and the unhinged lunatic who wrote the e-mail is fried on meth, looming over me like an angry god, and shouting:

"WHAT'S THE %$*&@! MATTER WITH YOU?? I TOLD YOU WHAT TO DO, AND YOU *DIDN'T* DO IT!!! WE KEEP GOING OVER THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND YOU F*%#!^+# NEVER DO WHAT I F$@*&# TELL YOU TO DO!! YOU MISERABLE *%$#?@! FAILURE!! NOW YOU'LL PAY!! ONCE AGAIN, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO HURT YOU!! WHY DO YOU MAKE ME HURT YOU?? IT'S YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT, YOU #@!*&%!!"

Whew.

Second, does threatening your donor base actually work? I guess it must, in some fashion, because they're doing it. Anyone else here receive a conservative fund-raising email "commanding" you to do this or that? Someone on the Twitter thread pasted an example of texts he received from an organization called "WinRed", and they're pretty cringey, and he said he was getting 3 in a day, and something like that is going to make me *not* want to donate.

Perhaps all of the shouting and bullying is a sneak preview of what life will be like in the Happy Fun Camps.

10 I've always thought that, had they made Larry Niven's Ringworld into a film around the time of Star Wars, Saxon would have been great casting as Louis Wu.

Don't know her, but my first thought on him was Louis Jourdan; so I was expecting to see Leslie Caron as the lady Mystery Guest. Clearly that's not her.

11 Second, does threatening your donor base actually work? I guess it must, in some fashion, because they're doing it.

It does if your base consists of wannabe dictators and a large number of weak people who want to be told what to do. That's why this approach plays so poorly with non-lefties. The GOP has tried it; they chose poorly, and haven't done it again.

I assume both political parties have at least one very well-oiled machine at their disposal: fundraising.

It is in their best interests, pretty much their only interest, to have that thing humming. So, with that assumption, I pile on another that they operate with incredible research about what tactics work best for which sub-groups of the population and that they tailor every message to maximize their donations.

That was before I lost everything in the canoe accident, Teddy died, and I started sending back all their fundraising letters with no money and "Fire Wayne LaPierre" written on them.

What's the deal? They have a big pot of money that hasn't been donated yet and if I put in a buck they'll transfer $5 from this slush fund into the campaign coffers? Or does my donation earn compounded interest?

If you would like to see something like that, I suggest going back in time to last year and donating the max to the two special GA senate campaigns and giving them your phone number.

It has slowed down the last month, but I was averaging over six texts a day. It got to the point that I had to set my phone up so that only known contacts go "beep" and any others are silent. And to do that I had to set each contact individually and that was still worth my time to stop the aggravation.

I'm sure that's true, but I doubt there are enough "thank you sir, may I have another" types in the conservative ranks to make it worth their while. That's probably not true of Kasich supporters and their ilk.

Fixed it for you. I would not be surprised in the slightest if the massive rise in homosexuality in the Millennial / GenZ cohort is due to a combination of women who have been so brainwashed by Gender Studies that the act of even talking to a man repulses them, and the rise of very weak men as Hollywood role models so that pussified men get sexually turned on by traditional masculinity, but can't muster the strength to actually cultivate masculine traits.

I think you have to look at the communications as seen through the eyes of the ones who created them -- millennials, who've been raised on daily overwhelming, overwrought social media panic headlines. Unless you threaten people with WORLD ANNIHILATION IN TWELVE YEARS IF WE DON'T DO 'X'... then they don't think their message breaks through. And their ability to simply reason through a position has atrophied to the point that they only see for/against positions -- and you damned well better be on the RIGHT side, or else!

Democrats have threatened that the GOP will throw granny off the cliff and "put em all back in chains" as long as I can remember. It's only the volume and extreme nature of the threats now that have taken the place of actually having to prove their case.

My favorites are the ones that state that President Trump is personally disappointed to see that my name isn't on the fundraising list.

But the D's fundraising e-mails are something else - they are either "crying happy tears of joy" over something, or they are on the brink of suicide. They do this at least daily.

It's amazing that anyone gives money in response to these appeals.

My father-in-law died last year of cancer and I'm sure he'd have died no matter what, but he might have not died as quickly if they'd caught it sooner or he wasn't neglecting other medical issues. Heart diseases are no different. And discouraging people from seeing doctors, particularly those who aren't inclined to see doctors anyway, means even when folks are allowed to see help for conditions they're not catastrophically dying from this very moment, they won't.

Who knew "Fuck you! Gimme your money!" was such a powerful lure for Democrats/progtards/communists?

Next time I'm stuck in a "discussion" with a progtard, I'll simply go with:

Me: "Hey, fuck you. Give me your money, right now."
P-tard: what? Why?
Me: I COMMANDED you to give me your money, right now! All of it! Right. Now!
P-tard:..well, okay, but...*hands me his money*

Like that. Should work.

258 Random observation;

I'm seeing a lot of new-ish bloggers reach their saturation point and go on rants. But a lot of them have this notion that COVID started with the media freaking out and hyping it up, because quite frankly they weren't actually paying any fucking attention before this. (hence the late rants)

This means they're missing that it's even worse than they think - because they're not accounting for 2-3 months of the powers that be keeping a total lid on it, plus 2.5 months of the media insisting it didn't spread in humans, and then it wasn't leaving China, and then slinging accusations of racism in order to help it spread.

It didn't start with fear, it started with apathy and mockery. And it's not being driven by fear, either - the progs know exactly what they're doing here and most of their rank and file revel in it.

I had a screening interview for an upcoming colonoscopy. The nurse asked the questions, was happy with the answers, and finished by saying that "We're sorry that your colonoscopy was delayed, and we are grateful for your patience."

It's turns out that my colonoscopy actually wasn't delayed (fortunately), but having them be delayed is now obviously routine.

No, they don't. Neither party per se relies that much on small donations because of cost/benefits so those get the crappy mail order treatment and abusive phone calls/texts. So, the same people that mail out save the whales, stop this or that, etc. do the party small donor lists.

The velvet approach fundraising comes from the smoozing and glad handing big donors at fundraising dinners, etc. and like Vegas, the more you pay, the better the treatment. These donors expect that from other fundraisers for foundations, museums, arts, etc.

All this putrid class based fundraising stems from the idiotic notion by Scotus majority in Buckley v. Valeo and its progeny that money is equivalent to speech.

379 Second, does threatening your donor base actually work? I guess it must, in some fashion, because they're doing it. Anyone else here receive a conservative fund-raising email "commanding" you to do this or that? Someone on the Twitter thread pasted an example of texts he received from an organization called "WinRed", and they're pretty cringey, and he said he was getting 3 in a day, and something like that is going to make me *not* want to donate.

I get quite a few text messages asking for donations. Not sure how my cell number got on the lists. But I remember the last (and only) one I replied to. It started "This is Nikki Haley..." I don't remember what "Nikki Haley" wanted, but I replied:

(1) I seriously doubt this is actually Nikki Haley (2) it is because of cowardly GOPe assholes like you that the Democrats stole the election from Trump. So you can fuck right off and don't ever fucking contact me again.

I only have ever donated to charities like Salvation Army, Hero Labradors and Team Rubicon. I have also donated to causes on Donors Choose. I only donate to places where they report exactly how each $ is spent.

387 > My husband pointed out a YouTube debate on Aerith vs Tifa and asked for my input. I said that not being a dude or otherwise having any interest in women, my opinion wasn't worth much, but Aerith seems kind of wishy-washy and emotional, where Tifa is practical and independent, and I'd prefer the latter. (And yes, I asked his opinion. He dodged the question.)

Tifa's boobs. QED.

Sure, but the Salvation Army MADE it a race thing, so it has to be approached using their terms.

Like I said, I'd imagine racist whites make 96% of their donations.

391 I used to get all these fundraising texts that attempted to convince me that Trump was personally concerned about me and wanted to see my actual name on a list of donors and kept asking the text author about me. Insulting my intelligence is not the way to make me donate.

392 Saw on the Twats that there's a book called "The Haunted Vagina" by a "Carlton Melick III" in which a woman's hoo-ha is a portal to hell, and demons and zombies sometimes climb out. That feels more like an Ace riff than a novel, though.

394 346 Apparently, the US Dept. of Justice has found "an alternate" Mueller report and is considering its release to the public.

Man, they're getting desperate, they're ratcheting up the Trump hate to eleventy, with polls (POLLS!) showing that Biden gets a thumbs down from 25% of Dems.
Posted by: mrp at December 03, 2021 12:13 PM (6eRlp)

Andrew Weismann was the radical leftist on the commission who was always pushing to issue a pure political hate document against Trump. Weissman has later said he was furious that Mueller apparently woke up at one point and said "hey man, we haven't found anything to support anything you're saying there!" So this hidden "report" is the version that Weismann wrote up and that Mueller himself looked at and said "that's just nuts."

They've always had it, it wasn't just "found". The fact that it's being released now shows how desperate the air - all it really proves is that the Mueller investigation was totally politicized from the start. (which we already knew)

396 287 Nothing against charity, but do they sell my email address, street address to every charity in America. It loads my mailbox with pleads, cheap pens, socks, cheap carrying bags, pins, and greeting cards. Of which I have now a lifetime of cards piled up somewhere, and of course the old standby, address labels.
Posted by: Colin at December 03, 2021 12:03 PM (pxOB6)

Another reason to support friends, family, others you know who need help instead of donating to large charities. I donated to several after the big hurricane and floods in Houston, and I still get all that crap from random charities. Maybe some of them are good, but they seem to spend way too much sending out tote bags, pens, free Christmas cards, calendars to people who never donated to them.

So the economy is collapsing and donations to the people who collapsed it are down. I can't help but wonder if there is somehow a connection.

399 The hell of it is, any of us could have devised a system that promised higher revenue AND engagement simply by not being lazy bastards.

Posted by: trev006

Easiest way to do it is set up a PAC such as Horde PAC. The only issue is that the FEC and FedGov purposefully make it opaque so you pretty much have to have an experienced treasurer and election fundraising lawyer which don't come cheap along with the online infrastructure for processing donations. Cheaper donations via CC or some other Epay often outweigh the cost of actually running a donation site.

That is part of the party system that needs to be blown up. I prefer the subscription model of party membership that UK uses among others where only people that pay membership have a say in candidates.

The issue with campaign donation lists is that candidates sell that information (even the unsuccessful ones do) to each other and they also sell it (or are run by the same political firms) to cause fundraising groups.

Obviously I can only speak for myself, but I find it very easy to be attracted to a man! Having men's arm around me, having a mans hairy chest against my skin, etc. what, as a woman, I don't understand are butch lesbians.
