Republican campaign FEAR + TOONS

Republican campaign FEAR + TOONS

Fear well that’s nothing new, but cartoons?
The new campaign seems to eliminate any coherent discussion of issues using language knowing most t-baggers have the attention span of a gnat. And frankly most of them are illiterate. Cartoons maybe the only way to reach these cretins.
So here we go, the template of their strategy exposed leaves them no option but to deny the whole mess was part of ever their plan.

Quote:
The Republican party sought to distance itself from the memo, with an RNC spokesman saying: "Fundraising documents are often controversial". Its statement also said that Michael Steele, the party's chairman, "disagrees with the language and finds the use of such imagery to be unacceptable. It will not be used by the Republican National Committee – in any capacity – in the future."

Re: Republican campaign FEAR + TOONS

Missing just a little detail here aren’t ya mubbbles:

Like the opening statement on the vid and the news link:

“National GOP leaders are doing damage control today after a Politico scoop lifted the curtain on the party's plan to tap voters' "fear" in the coming campaign season. The PR problem started when an absent-minded attendee at the Republican National Committee (RNC) confab on February 18 in Boca Grande, Florida, left a 72-page document from its 2010 strategizing session in a hotel room. Today, Politico reporter Ben Smith's expose is making headlines.”


It was only after some nitwit at the RNC Meeting stupidly left the report behind for anyone to find that the GOP was forced into damage control mode.
There is every reason to believe they would have used this script if it had not been found.


Plus if Micheal Steele was present during the meeting there is no evidence that he objected to the plan then.

Also:
Steele has been responsible for slinging mindless shit in the past in a lame attempt to block health care reform.


"Such are the odd convergences of movement politics. However, the RNC may have more trouble distancing itself from the equation of Democratic policy with socialism, however, since Michael Steele is credited with originating that meme in the health care debate."

Steele Calls Obama Health Plan "Socialism"

Re: Republican campaign FEAR + TOONS

What is it with the liberals and changing peoples forum names to something "witty" or insulting?

Is that like something that makes you think you are some how outwitting or showing up the one you are disagreeing with? DC, This OP, Gazza, you all do it as if it where scripted.....

As far as the thread.... No difference in this one than one of Dans thread.... Party line and BS as usual....

Ya... because the conservative members of this forum never change peoples forum names to something "witty" or insulting.

Why say this is BS? It's factual information straight from the horses mouth. Of course... anyone with half a brain has known that the Republican party has used fear to get votes for quite some time now. It's just a matter of them finally "admitting" it.

Lisa... It is not even comparable.. Of course some do it on the right but here it is largely a lefty thing....

Just because they use fear doesn't mean there isn't fear to be mindful of, if anything, it is proving itself quite well these days isn't it?

Just sayin....

I believe fear, in general, is caused by a lack of knowledge and understanding.

The only things I'm afraid of are the dark and large statues. (I'm always afraid that the statue is unstable and going to fall over and hurt someone.) Fear is irrational. I do not fear the government nor do I think I have reason to fear the government.

Oh, and the Democrats have never done this of course. lol Please....... all politicians on both sides, play on people's emotions, needs and fears.

BTW, you should fear, be concerned with and worry about what you have no control of but has control over you and your life. It's being apathetic, non-vigilant, burying our collective heads in the sand, living in ignorance and having blind trust, that has gotten us to where we currently are in this country and allowed our government on a city, county, state and federal level, to become the powerful, bloated, ever intrusive, lame, ineffectual, self-serving, unaccountable, fiscally irresponsible, out of control entity that it currently is.

Worry and fear are not the same. But like I said, fear is irrational and often leads to irrational reactions. I'm definitely not apathetic, nor do I bury my head in the sand, nor do I have blind trust. I do what I can on a local level and with family and friends to let them know that ALL of Washington DC needs to be cleaned out. ALL of it... literally.

BTW - I know Dems do it too. Politicians are sleazy.

I agree. G. Carlin was trying to tell this to us for years.

Though he used humor to try to get the point across, for the most part the message fell on deaf ears.

There is a part of me that is so disenfranchised with what is going on,
that I don't want to vote anymore.

Though I do get into state and local politics, and I like to be involved in the process of voting for who will be governor and the props on the ballot. That is what is really important to me.

For now, and for a while the federal government seems completely detached from the will of the American people.

Re: Republican campaign FEAR + TOONS

Fear is a tool of the human body to keep you sharp and alert in times of strife...

Don't confuse Fear with paranoia Lisa...

There are plenty of things to fear right now in our Government and we need to change it.

As the Great Balboa said:

" Don't take my fear, I need it, it is what keeps me focused and alert. If you fear nothing, you are an easy target for the taking.... You are the weak link of the herd..."

Re: Republican campaign FEAR + TOONS

These were cartoon faces representing these people. Partly meant to be taken lightly. But also intended to represent the problems we face today and these are the people held responsible to lead our country.

Many here in the US are unhappy and afraid of where our country is going.

I personally thought the cartoon faces funny and appropriate when looking at them in a light hear-ted way. Laughing but still seeing we have big problems right now and many feel these leaders are creating problems big enough to cause people to be fearful.

Just cartoon faces to be laughed at and taken in a light manner but still making a point.

I disagree. But fear is a feeling, so it isn't the same for everyone. Fear makes me stupid and irrational, so I only fear things that are silly and irrational. I do not trust the government, but I do not fear it either. Fear doesn't keep me focused or alert, in fact it does the opposite. I become disorganized and unable to think clearly. So no, I will not fear the government.

That is because you have never been taught to harness fear. Un tamed fear is not good... You have to know how to harness it and use it....

Fear is the bodies most powerful tool. It can literally make you hear better, see better, react quicker, give you super human strength...

Fear 1000% absolutely makes you more focused and alert. Once you conquer panic, you are an Army of one.

Trust me Lisa, I was taught by the best in the world on this one, you have no idea what you are capable of - x10 when you have controlled fear..

The GOP intended to incite fear with this childish plan to the point of sending the t-baggers into raving convolutions of paranoia. Obama has been accused by these leaches of being a commie, a nazi, the great satan and god knows what else.
The cartoon show of fear was designed to keep this blathering nonsense in the very front of the discussion.
Too expel any rational thought and replace it with constant thoughts of scary monsters under the bed.

By the way it does not surprise me that you would channel the spirit of Rocky Balboa here in defense of this idiocy.
After all Rocky is a punch drunk illiterate slob who could barely take a walk around the block unless someone drew footprints on the pavement for him follow.
Much like the actor that portrays him, Stallone, he knows about as much about politics as your average gnat would know about particle physics.
And like the cartoons Rocky came here to defend he is .... fictional.
Which would all make him a perfect role model for the GOP and the t-baggers.

Next time you take a trip to the Magic Kingdom you should attempt to bring home some more pertinent hallucinations.

Some quotes from Bonzo the Chimp might be more appropriate.
