In the world of politics, the one thing that can absolutely destroy a political campaign is the attack of an opponent’s supporters or future voters. Hillary Clinton made the mistake of calling Trump supporters “deplorables”, prompting us to proudly wear merchandise that calls us that and further support Trump.
Even Hollywood has, at least in the past, understood the importance of not attacking another candidate’s supporters, but rather try to bring them in to your own camp and convince them that your candidate is the better choice, if the movie “Our Brand Is Crisis” starring Sandra Bullock is anything to go by.
Well, it seems nobody remembered to tell MSNBC commentator Donny Deutsch last week.
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, co-host Mika Brzezinki prompted her guest by talking about the “family separation” hoax outrage and unapologetically attacking Trump (as per usual).
Deutsch had this to say: “What has to happen now is this can no longer be about who Trump is. It has to be about who we are, if we are working towards November. We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you are ripping children from parents’ arms. The mistake we’ve made in the past is ‘Look at that bad guy over there. Look at that bad guy’. What the Democrats have to do is make the next election a referendum on not who Trump is, but who you are. That’s the big difference. You can no longer as a voter – because it’s not about taxes, it’s not even about some abstract term of immigration or nationalism; if you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going ‘You here, you here.’”
Boy am I gonna have fun with this one.
First, as I mentioned earlier and as is the whole topic of the article, attacking a candidate or a person’s supporters is perhaps the worst mistake you can make in politics. It’s not the voters who are on the ballot. And calling them “Nazis” unless they vote for you will not get you any votes. Wanna know what happens when someone says “If you don’t vote for me, you’re a Nazi”? The response is: “screw you, moron.” And that’s sugarcoating it, as I don’t write curse words unless I’m quoting someone. And even then, I make sure to censor the words.
I get that the Left is basically out of ideas on how to take down Trump, but the way you separate him from his supporters isn’t to attack the supporters. Calling someone who won’t vote Democrat an “idiot” or a “Nazi” will only get them angry at you, not at their favored candidate.
Second, Obama and Bush were enforcing the same law Trump (prior to the EO) was enforcing. Does that mean that Obama and Bush voters are also evil because they were voting for someone who was ripping children from their parents’ arms?
Third, what do you mean it’s not about “taxes… some abstract term of immigration or nationalism”? It’s PRECISELY ABOUT THOSE THINGS TOO! If Democrats get control of Congress, they will RAISE people’s taxes. We want to vote for MAGA candidates because they will KEEP TAXES LOW and even perhaps LOWER THEM AGAIN! And what do you mean by “some abstract term of immigration or nationalism”? It is not abstract in the least. If Democrats get control of Congress, they will do what they can to open our borders. They will do what they can to destroy this country as founded and reshape it into their own socialist utopia (though, a dystopia for everyone else).
Finally, with everything we know about the National Socialist German Worker’s Party that Hitler founded, we know very well that the only people who come close to accurately describing Nazis are the Democrats and the entire Left. Sure, they may not be calling for the deaths of the Jews (even though they effectively are if they support Palestine), but everything about the Nazis from the Nuremberg Laws shaping after the Democrat South’s slavery laws to the brown shirts’ confiscation of all civilian weapons, to even the calls for environmental awareness perfectly describes the modern-day Democrat Party.
That even includes the Antifa thugs who organize and destroy and attack similarly to the brown (and even Fascist black) shirts of the 20th century. Not to mention their harassment of conservatives in restaurants, as with the cases of Kristjen Nielsen, Sarah Sanders and Eugenior Joseph (the black Trump supporter who was harassed in a Cheesecake Factory in Florida back in May).
Replace Hitler’s hatred for Jews with hatred for Trump supporters and conservatives and you have these unhinged Leftists.
Make no mistake, the Left wants to silence us regardless of method. Whether through banning us on social media or flat out having us arrested and/or killed, this is what they want to do. Their behavior more closely resembles Nazi Germany’s than they could ever claim we do. Not to mention they’ve already held internment camps for the Japanese during World War II under the orders of FDR, one of the Democrats’ favorite Presidents (who was honestly the closest thing we ever had to a Mussolini, given what he did).
But returning to Deutsch, all of this is the reason such a tactic would never work. Not only does it not help to attack someone’s supporters, but given the nature of the Left as being far more Nazi-like than they could ever claim we are, not enough people will ever buy it… well, if people are educated, that is. The Left has done a good job at promulgating a big lie that the Nazis and Italian Fascists were right-wing.
I don’t know if I’ve shared this with you in the past, but I will do so here. I remember having taken a political leaning quiz in high school. The quiz asked me all sorts of questions about political topics and the results would show my own political standing on an X-Y chart, in which the farthest left in the X-line is communism (which makes sense), farthest down on the Y-line was anarchy, farthest up on the Y-line was authoritarianism and farthest right on the X-line was Fascism. And on this chart, there were other notable people in history/politics such as Adolf Hitler, Obama, Stalin, and interestingly enough, Rush Limbaugh.
The chart placed me, of course, pretty far-right and “anarchist”.
Anyway, the chart also placed Hitler relatively right-wing, albeit more to the authoritarian side. If it were entirely honest, it would have put Marxism at the very left (since Communism, Nazism, Fascism and Socialism all derive from Marxism), totalitarian at the very top, anarchy at the very bottom and conservative at the very right.
And if it were honest, it would’ve put Stalin, Obama, Hitler and Mussolini pretty close together on the left, with Rush Limbaugh, Ronald Reagan, Eisenhower and Lincoln on the right.
But due to this assignment, I was led to believe, and legitimately believed until I learned better, that Hitler and Mussolini were right-wingers. That Communism was big government on the Left and Fascism was big government on the Right. That’s, very clearly, a lie. But as a high school student, this is what I was taught. And this is what other students are taught as well.
And it’s all a huge lie. Nazism and Fascism are not right-wing ideologies, they are their own interpretations of Marxism, which is entirely Left-leaning and anti-capitalist.
Regardless, returning to Deutsch, I honestly do hope this is a method they employ. Calling us Nazis will yield them the same result as in 2016. Not only am I ready to destroy each of their arguments, but I’m also ready to more strongly support pro-Trump candidates this November and fully support Trump in 2020.
My only worry is that this will eventually lead to a sort of civil war, in which Antifa terrorists and unhinged radical Leftists will harass more and more conservatives and perhaps eventually actually start killing us. Of course, I’m ready to destroy anyone who wishes to harm me and my family thanks to my 2nd Amendment rights, but that could definitely make things ugly out there.
Still, seeing as most gun owners live in red counties and consider themselves conservative, I doubt any actual civil war with the Left would last longer than a week. While I hope and pray we never reach that point, red-blooded Americans will be ready to fight for our freedoms once again.
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
