Sarah Palin & The Demoncats

Over at Evan Sayet's blog (, opposition worker bee "Suze" said:

"...Ms. Whale Blubber, as Mr. Palin fondly refers to his wifey--or Harriet Miers,as some of us have come to think of her."

Right. In the last 48 hours.

Actually, that's a bad analogy.

Conservatives had a problem with Harriet Myers.

They'll fight for Governor Palin.

The proper equivalent is the selection of Bush 41's veep Dan Quayle in 1988, which was likewise motivated by a search for a young, fresh-faced conservative. The latter's potential gravitas was nipped in the bud and savaged and destroyed by a vicious, whithering, unwarranted (for the most part), and unrelenting attack on his intelligence within 48 hours of the selection (which was so effective that I must confess that I myself can't help but chuckle everytime he pops up to this day).

They laid a trap for him. Bush 41 was on to the Democrats' perpetual trotting out of JFK doppelgangers every four years since the assassination in their hopes of milking the mythologized mojo and thought he had in Quayle a Republican counter-response to the strategy of evoking JFK (and Quayle certainly had JFK's All-American good looks, height, and youth over the short, swarthy, and Mediterranean Dukakis' Boston pedigree and JFK bush-cut).

However, the Democrats got wind that Quayle would compare his experience to JFK's in the debate, and O Moumias--i.e. the mummified Lloyd Bentsen (Dukakis' veep)-- was assigned as executionor.

He was ready for it; and pounced:

That was indeed uncalled for. Quayle simply compared his length of time in the senate with Senator John Kennedy's--which was an objectively accurate assessment-- but Bentsen treated him as if he was a pretender who was laying claim to the Throne of Camelot (though not a prior or subsequent peep about the long succession of Democrats from the assassination to the present day who engage in precisely that charade).

Granted, the Republicans had it coming by trying to co-opt the Democrats' idol, and the price they paid for daring to reach for Camelot's Crown was the utter humiliation of the Republican's version of the Once-And-Future King.

Poor Dan Quayle. For a fleeting moment he was the young face of the future of the party-- the GOP's own JFK, in fact-- but in the next he suddenly found himself the laughingstock of the nation, which only pressured him into committing more gaffes, compounding the humiliation and causing more blurted bloops and blunders in the nerve-racking process and disqualifying him forevermore from positions of political influence:

Alright, admittedly, Quayle doesn't come off as the brightest bulb in the box there, but the man was educated as a journalist, got his J.D., and was a United States senator, the point being that he could not have been anywhere near the mental midget he was ruthlessly caricatured as.

Anyway, aggressive--and much more unwarranted--ridicule is precisely what they're warming up for in preparation of "hahahaha-ing" Sarah Palin (and McCain for picking her).

The eager lols were already launched like the first, warm-up fireworks on the 4th of July before the full-monty extravaganza when Cindy McCain said that Alaska's close proximity to Russia in itself gave Palin foreign policy experience.

Like Quayle comparing his own length of time in the senate to pre-JFK Jack Kennedy's, Mrs. McCain's statement was perfectly true: In her role as governor, Palin certainly had to deal with Russia in one way or another (even if it just involved fishing lanes).

Mrs. McCain made no comment comparing Palin's experiences with Russia as being comparable to, say, Ronald Reagan's or Condoleeza Rice's, and yet the comment was hyperbolically treated as if she did.

And yet that-- along with the news of young Bristol Palin's unwed pregnancy-- was enough to get the wheels of derision to start spinning.

And it's going to get louder if/when Palin misspeaks (as everyone in the political arena--particularly the newbies in the spotlight--does and has, as Senator Obama reminds us regularly--though with impunity) with the intention of portraying Palin as the female equivalent of the "airhead" Quayle-- i.e. a bimbette.

Palin, however, has demonstrated far more poise and confidence on the stage than Quayle did, though that will only make the attacks more vicious in the hopes of breaking her (Quayle, it should be added, though his political future was destroyed, was never broken but fulfilled his term with acquiescent grace, dignity, and good cheer, with malice towards none, a true conservative).

The modus operandi of the relentless attacks already underway will--as before and since-- follow Alinsky's Rules for Radicals #8:

"Keep the pressure on. Never let up." Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

It should be noted that "attack" does not mean an aggressive debating of the issues, because they can't win that way. It means ripping the kitchen sink out of the wall and throwing it.

In tandem with that is the reliance on Rule #4:

"Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity's very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

(btw, thanks fj & Andronicus)

They demonstrate their Alinskyite mindset right here.

Our "own book of rules" is the conservative honoring of Free Speech and--for Republicus--an honest effort to respond to every poster, if only out of courtesy.

Taking a look back at earlier posts when infestation was in full swing here, those good-faith policies were exploited by the Alinskyites by their flash flooding of the commentary section with cut & pasted, unanswerable Kool Aid (with the source rarely cited, for obvious reasons), and the continuation of the first argument with no acknowledgement of superior points made in the interceding counterargument made by your host (which, by the rules of Reason-if not common decency-- needed to be addressed and/or necessitated re-evaluation and adjustment of their argument), so it was as if your host was arguing with the wind.

They just came in here to vomit and defecate, treating this blog as some kind of vomitorium or restroom.

Yet your host had to abide by his own rules and principles, and he either had to let them propagandize with impunity (and pollute the place with their filth), or swamp himself trying to reason with an unruly, mindless mob which had made themselves at home here.

They figured that out.

Only when they attacked my guests with no provocation did I allow myself to delete and evict them in good conscience, seeing as how protection of my guests from harrassment by others was a rule that could override the others (when their harrassing of me, and my own personal sense of annoyance and disgust, could not).

Counting on me to uphold my own Prime Directives, they were hoist by their own petard.

Nevertheless, on other blogs accessible by the lefty trolls, they persist in precisely the same manner.

Returning to the main subject of the planned dis-Quaylifying of Governor Sarah Palin by the same methods, that methodological cat was let out of the bag long ago, and it must not be allowed to work again.

It's just an old--and tiresome--Marxist ploy, like Alinsky's Rule #5:

"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

So when you see the lefty trolls aggressively posting the Kool Aid from the Daily Kos and Moveon mixing factories--"attacking attacking attacking" and in effect trying to control and monopolize any dialogue, shout down the opposition, and/or sow confusion-- and persist in their ridiculing "hahahahahahas," know that they are engaging in mindless, tactical rote that has nothing to do with the veracity of the Kool Aid (no less any universal or enduring principle behind it that they can actually apply consistently across-the-board), nor any just desserts of ridicule, nor the substance at hand, nor the topic of the post, for that matter.

It's just the distracting and deflecting noise of thrown pies, pots, and pans, and it only identifies exactly where they're coming from.

They're just employing Alinsky's sleazy tactics that hope to win "by any means necessary." (Malcolm X)

What the lefty trolls don't understand is that, despite the thousand faces they wear to hide their true identity and sow strife and detonate i.e.d.s like masked terrorists, they're transparent and one is able to see right through them.

So brainwashed are they and enslaved to the service of their subversive cause that they don't pause to wonder if their robotic behaviorial patterns have already been discerned and their programming discovered.

They just mindlessly keep doing it.

Any rebuttal to this will probably begin with "hahahaha," which--like almost all of the tactics-- is merely a psychological defense mechanism converted into an offensive weapon.

They can't think outside the box they're in, so even when the tactics are unmasked for what they are--i.e. sleazy, Marxist ones--all they can do is robotically pick-up the pace of importing cut-&-pasted Kool Aid and heckling out their "hahahahas," confident that "A lie told enough times will eventually be believed"--as they readily and roundly (being well familiar with the tactic) accused the Bush Administration of engaging in when the latter simply had to repeat the facts over and over again in the attempt to counter the aggressive, mischaracterizing Kool Aid, thinking they were misunderstood in good faith.

The Bush Administration eventually--and obviously-- said "fuhggit" when they realized--just as you can see here--that the attacking opposition is not interested in reasoning and good faith intercourse, nor that they somehow misunderstood.

They understand what's at stake for their agenda very well, and, since their agenda has irreconcilable differences with the traditional American one, they attack that much more rabidly to destroy the matter by their anti-matter--and antisocial, if not sociopathic-- substance.

However, persisting in the exposed tactic of "telling a lie enough times until it is believed (by the weary citizenry)" has arrived at its saturation point and can snooker no more simpletons .

And so persisting in the lies has turned into a belief that "If we just keep saying/doing something over and over again, it will eventually succeed" (despite all evidence that the limitations have been reached), which is a futile persistence that Freud diagnosed as being insane.

These lefty trolls have mental issues, and, like most genuinely crazy people, they not only think that they're "normal" (and "in-touch" with real normal people), but simultaneously contradict their Everyman delusion in the process by conceitedly thinking that they are better, that they are of the elite (not knowing that a true elite would never solecistically--and disgracefully-- exult: "I'm an elitist!").

Their illness, though, is not of the type that exhibits itself in the erratic, unpredictable behavior of the psychotic (although they're encouraged to "Go Nuts"--obviously--when executing Rule #8 to keep the opposition reeling), but more the ritualized type exhibited by the neurotic, so their behavior is always predictable, robotic, and they all sound as if they came off of the same assembly line (beyond the one or two trolls here and elsewhere who go by a dozen aliases between them).

Hence, within 48 hours of Palin's selection, the vats at the Kool Aid factories were feverishly mixed and churned all night and ready for distribution the next day for the predictable "attack-attack-attack" onslaught of data dumps, with the obligatory "hahahahas," and the automatic projection:

"Wow it only took 12 hours (for you) to respond glad you guys got your RNC talking points this week."

After a stunned delay of 24 hours and an additional 24 to prepare the Kool Aid for mass distribution, and now the inundation of it, look who's talking.

They will always try to overwhelm and shut down the argument with the Kool Aid, and heckle like hyenas and/or project with each step.

They do it over and over again, same-ol'-same-ol,' and, apparently, don't even realize they're doing it.

And they're doing it to Sarah Palin.

Senator Obama called for his blogsoldiers to cease and desist from attacking the Palin family.

They may obediently back off on that (though maybe not), but they'll overcompensate by focusing that much more contempt and derision on the Governor herself (in the diagrammed manner that they universally apply to conservative presidential candidates and right-wing bloggers alike):

Alinsky's Rule #8: "Keep the pressure on....(Attack, attack, attack from all sides...).

In the past 48 hours, Palin was aggressively attacked for being an "out-of-touch elitist," a yokel, inexperienced, a bad governor with a bad husband, a bad mother, and a hypocrite for championing abstinence while her teenaged daughter gets knocked up by her hockey jock boyfriend (albeit the true hypocrisy would have been if she arranged for her daughter to have an abortion, a choice not to that seems to infuriate pro-Choicers).


Alinsky's Rule #4: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

The easiest and most obvious application of that rule is the exploitation of the First Amendment which has allowed the Alinskyites to scream "FIRE!!!" in a crowded political theater with impunity.

They say whatever they want, scornful of the Founding Father's assumption that good character will prevail over the centuries and with it a sense of honesty, civility, and temperance that reveres the First Amendment by not abusing it.

Alinsky's Rule #5:

Dis-Quaylify and belittle the governor by ridicule.

Once again, the trollette Suze:

"...Ms. Whale Blubber, as Mr. Palin fondly refers to his wifey--or Harriet Miers,as some of us have come to think of her."

The programmed behavior of the Lefty trolls is kind of sad in the sense that they evoke the once-human beings who were assimilated into the Borg Collective in episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

And they themselves were injected with and made dependent upon the very Kool Aid that they now peddle, mindlessly chanting "Resistance is Futile":

...and you can't help but hope that they can be extracted and be salvaged from the hive (like the Borged human Seven from Star Trek: Voyager):

Most of the lefty trolls here (or who used to be here but still spread their poison across the political blogosphere) come out of that very Far Left Collective hive that even the liberal Obama tries hard to keep his distance from (and who he just told to stfu about the Palin family).

Like Borg drones, though, they'll just keep coming, one after another, mindlessly attacking-attacking-attacking.

They've poisoned the atmosphere of the country a lot more than Exxon-Mobil has, and they're determined to take over.

Draw the line, people:

(Great scene!)

Don't be afraid of them. Aside from being noisy nuisances peddling nonsense, they're feckless once you figure out the frequency that they're operating on and picking them off one-by-one-- or even 3-5 at a time--is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.

...As long as you don't drink the Kool Aid that they're constantly trying to pour down your throat so as to turn you into one of them.

Don't swallow any drink that's offered. What differentiates the lefty trolls from Star Trek's Borg is that, outwardly, they look pretty "normal," so in that sense they're like the Body Snatchers from the movie about the invasion of their namesake.

And so be careful when invited to give it a rest and have a cup of bedtime tea with one of them, because it might be spiked with the Kool Aid:

I've personally had experiences with the Body Snatchers.

They'll engage in perfectly "normal" conversation with you, but when the subject of politics comes up--and especially if the name "Bush" is mentioned-- you will first see their eyes flash and then go dark as a barely-discernible tremor ripples over their face. Then their features twitch uncontrollably and contort, become distorted and, grimacing, their voices change and they begin to sneer and spew obscenties and vomit their bile, much like Linda Blair as the little girl Regan who was possessed by Satan in the classic horror movie *The Exorcist.*

That's not an exaggeration.

They call it "passion."

It's possession.

And here they are trash-talking Palin's daughter, Bristol:

Fear not: "Resist the devil and he will flee from you." James 4:7

Great post, John.

I don't know if you saw Paul Begala's "Attack, Attack, Attack!" post over at the Huffington Post, but I'm sure its' in the archives.

...and Barney Frank was saying yesterday that contrary to Barack Obama's "Leave the families out of it" members WERE legitimate targets.

Keep up the good fight!

John, do you play chess? This is one of your better posts. You have looked at all the angles to see what moves your opponent might make and capture it in thought before hand before they make their move.

Actually, I just studied how they play and they always play the same.
