Put Them in a Place Where They Can Only Lie to Each Other
by David Sims
LEFTISTS ARE deceivers, which is to say that they are people who know how to get you to believe in falsehood by a wide assortment of tricks, only one of which is outright brazen lying.
One of those tricks is to speak the truth, but do it as if through a mouthful of garbage, so that it emerges with a stinking odor that makes you think that you’re being lied to.
For example, a reporter wanting to deceive residents of a town about the extent to which Jews control the media might recruit a drama major from a nearby college to pose as a “neo-Nazi” in a scripted phony interview. At some point, the “Nazi” will say to the reporter: “We all know that the Jews control the media,” a statement that is perfectly true, but he’ll say it in such a contemptuous, arrogant way that people who see the interview on television will experience an emotional backlash in reaction to the speaker’s apparent attitude. In effect, they’ll deny the truth to themselves.
Another, yet similar, propaganda technique often used by leftists is forewarning you against a truth that they don’t want you to hear, but believe that they can’t prevent you from hearing sooner or later. So they’ll try to inoculate you by warning you about what certain “kooky conspiracy theorists” (or “hateful trolls”) are saying. It might be entirely true, or it might be mostly true, but the leftist doesn’t want you to end up believing this particular truth, so he’ll attempt to head your mind off at the pass, so to speak.
Still another is passive-aggression, in which the leftist represents herself as the victim, when she’s actually the provoker of hostilities. She seeks out someone with whom she disagrees, initiates an unpleasant conversation, provokes an angry response, and then self-righteously portrays herself as the victim. I use the female pronoun here because the leftists who practice this technique the most often are feminists.
The left has many ways to deceive. You can watch them practice deception for decades and still be surprised when they pull out yet another one that you haven’t seen before.
