Lurker Susie 9:20 a.m. That may be video from 2012, it's not specified in the article. The Christian group was awarded $100K for attorney fees in 2014 and the civil rights lawsuit is still being adjudicated. However, you are right. This behavior is still going on in Dearbornistan. Lots of no-go areas in Dearborn and Detroit. I used to travel for work through the three highest crime zip code areas in the country. Tends to keep one on alert!

I'm with squaredance. Especially this:

Her supported are morally and intellectually depraved--there is little other way to put it. It is doubtful that this can be remedied, but if it can be then one fears that it will take great national hardship to do so.

I don't know that it can be remedied even then. That's the whole point of all the horrific things rse has been writing about in our education system. "Mind arson" is such a perfect term - an education system (and popular culture) that destroys the mental tools people need in order to even see reality clearly.

she does not require anyone to blackmail her in order to betray us.

No, but as she will sell out to the highest bidder, blackmail could certainly get her attention. She really doesn't want the gravy train disrupted.

"Yes, the national security angle, and the competency issues are frightening, but what is truly frightening is the broad and enthusiastic acceptance of outright corruption."

Yep......The problem is not that our country has been hijacked by a few radicals. The problem is that there is "broad and enthusiastic acceptance" of what they are doing.

Rodham is not personally popular and is not trusted by pretty much anyone. But they will vote for her because (a) she will keep the free stuff coming and (b) they are afraid of the alternative.

JD: I thoroughly agree with RSE. I wish that she could find a way to get her work out more broadly, and before some influential pundits and politicians. I often send people links to her blog, but they seem not to understand. Perhaps it is too abstract for them (and I am not criticizing her here in any way for this.)

It is chilling, frightening stuff, and I can never find a single flaw or points of disagreement in her arguments or presentations.

There are tons of ways to divide leftist groups.

radical enviros. vs massive immigration & illegal immigration

Planned Parenthood targeting black neighborhoods & the high abortion rate for black Americans...vs embracing/paying for children that are citizens of other countries

high unemployment rate for Americans vs importing MORE people

gays vs importing Muslims

"green energy" vs wildlife protection

loving regulations for every business vs no/fewer regs for abortion clinics (lower standards for businesses that serve women)

squaredance,

Watching that video of the older Clinton supporters arguing with the young Trump supporters, it occurs to me that the Clinton supporters are almost brainwashed.

Over the years, probably with some direction from some behind-the-scenes behavioral scientists, the dems have methodically culled the most vulnerable and easily manipulated groups from the herd, frightened them with lies about people who are conservative, Christian, or just average middle class whites.

They BELIEVE Donald Trump is racist, never mind his getting support from Mike Tyson and a whole bunch of black ministers and black parents of illegal alien murder victims.

They BELIEVE he hates women, never mind that his daughter is a prominent member of his executive staff, and that he has many talented women working for him.

On and on and on.

Not all of these people are bad people. You simply cannot penetrate what they believe, because the schools and the media have done such a good job in convincing them. I really don't know how to combat this.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Ig, that's true, except why would the Russians need to bother with blackmail? Obama and Hillary are already doing everything in their power to reduce America's influence in the world, wreck our alliances, weaken our military and impoverish our citizenry.--

I think at least some of the shouters are not necessarily brainwashed and KNOW that they are lying, and they get paid for it. The shouters brainwashed people into believing the Tea Party was racist.

Mr. Trump's first endorsement was from Dennis Rodman, and he accepted it graciously. And Farrakhan approves of his immigration policy.

Miss Marple 2

squaredance,

I just saw that report (what you posted at 10:10).

It will be very difficult to refute the reports because the Brits don't release names, to avoid prejudicing the case. We won't know one thing about the shooter except what their government chooses to release.

This is why when the posturing by some media outlets about not saying the name of the shooter started, I said it was a bad idea.

The theory is to avoid giving them the glory through publicity.

I personally think it allows them to keep their names out of public view, and to avoid internet searching for connections. Almost all of what we know about Omar is through amateuer sleuthing through YouTube, web sites, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

You can't find that stuff out if you don't have a name.

Captain Hate

And Farrakhan approves of his immigration policy.

Ugh, I suppose that stems from Zippy and Cankles liquidating Calypso Louie's Libyan ATM but who knows where that nutjob is coming from other than self interest.

There is nothing new in this. These are pure communist tactics and have been the same since the last 19th century.

There are layers of fronts, controllers, operatives and useful idiots.

Are the useful idiots truly not "bad people"? How is it that some are not "brainwashed" and others are? What is the difference here, circumstances or character?

The fact of the matter is that it hardly matters if the useful idiots are "bad people" or not. What comes from their support for the Left is the deepest evil, and evil that has been yet to be loosed will full force upon us, BTW.

In any event, you will find that the are ineducable and impervious to suasion.

These sort allowed the Soviet and ChiCom regimes to exits and maintain themselves. There they were used not just to intimidate voters, but also as lower level informants.

I have abosltuely no sympathy for them.

Threadkiller

but does anyone take up that argument,

From Hewitt's "I'm back!" speech:


“Republicans have to be clear about the binary choice in front of us, close ranks around Trump and encourage him to eschew the frivolous and move ahead with a serious message.”

What these GOPe dopes refuse to believe is that they don't decide what is frivolous and what isn't.

They have never multitasked in their lives. Trump can wage war on multiple fronts. That is the nature of running your own business.

If Trump decided that bike lanes was the next thing he was going to rail against, Hugh would cry in his soup while Trump cinches up another multitasking voting bloc that has that issue on their pet peeve list.

This is why when the posturing by some media outlets about not saying the name of the shooter started, I said it was a bad idea.

Those dim bulbs are always making dumb rules, like printing the names of accused rapists but never the victims (except when attacked by a Kennedy relative or Kobe Bryant), even when it's proven that the "victim" fabricated the entire thing.

squaredance,

We have a lot of people who are indoctrinated from the moment they enter kindergarten. That indoctrination is reinforced by the media, Hollywood, popular music, and universities, as well as (sadly) many religious institutions.

Why do some not succumb? Possible reasons:

1. Real life experience, up close and brutal, which gives the lie to the approved narrative. Examples would include experience being cheated by a non-profit boss, unions stealing pensions, victims of crimes, losing medical insurance, etc.)

2. A resistance to imposing preferred thought by the subset of Americans who still retain the "you are not the boss of me" gene.

3. Intelligent people turned off by stupidity in all its many manifestations.

People do escape. This thing with Hillary has given me an opening to work on my daughter and granddaughter. The democrats are not only Marxists but a criminal enterprise. That letter in the Weasel Zippers story I posted is absolute proof they never intended to let Bernie win.

It sounds to me like Baby Hughie want Mr. Trump to intellectualize his message. Mr. Trump's answer to that is "All Talk, No Action."

Intellectualizing the message is not the way to win. Let the intelligentsia do the intellectualizing, let the leader lead and the fighter fight.

MM: In my personal experience, it is mostly a matter of character. It certainly is not a matter of intelligence, or at least high intelligence. You mention the Nomenklatura and how they do this, but you forget that they acquire and maintain power in part through the useful idiots. The later do have responsibility for themselves; they are not merely pawns.

I am sure that you can talk to the young in your circle and family, and perhaps make some headway, but I would say that this has more to do with you position as a "elder" than it does with their general openness to suasion, an I am not quite sure that your family count as the mainstream useful idiots, at least not yet. This is not to say that you should not do your best to enlighten them.

What I am saying is there is nothing new at all in this cradle to grave indoctrination and brainwashing, and it does not excuse the "useful idiots".

From my understanding of rse's writings, "brainwashing" isn't the right term - it's MUCH worse than that. It's not just false ideas or beliefs (although those are there, too), it's changing their thought processes and the way they perceive the world at the root level.

We can counteract brainwashing. But how do you counteract an operating system that's been programmed to be corrupt from the ground up?

GUS @ 11:10

In this case, I think most of us here would actually agree with French's logic:

For years I’ve gone back and forth on the right term to describe jihadists. I’ve called them Islamofascists, Islamic supremacists, and Islamists, and I’ve used the term “radical Islam” to describe their faith. But, ultimately, I don’t think the term is quite accurate for a simple reason — jihadist Islam is entirely mainstream not just within Islamic history but within multiple Islamic-dominated nations and regions. I’ve written about this extensively before, but when majorities in many countries support the death penalty for leaving Islam or supported Osama bin Laden, then it’s hard to describe their views as particularly “radical.”

But of course he's still NeverTrump even though Trump is the one candidate who actually agrees with his position on this.
