    They have a point...

    13. Attempting to reason with intractable, hardcore radical leftists will always end in futility.
    Such people are incorrigibly anti-rational, so it is impossible to establish an authentic interlocutory interface with them. The only realistic way to engage them is to crush them politically, using any and all truthful and lawful tactics.

    1. The era of liberalism is over.
    Today there are no liberals in power; there are only radical leftists. They are the enemy, not the opposition. Their ideology is not simply wrong; it is evil.

    2. It is impossible to be too cynical about the intentions, motives, and truthfulness of radical leftists.
    They will always exceed our most horrifying expectations.

    3. Radical leftists are continually seeking to destroy America's historic foundations, particularly our Constitution.
    Their goal is to rebuild upon the rubble according to their own evil vision and to gratify their insatiable lust for tyrannical power.

    4. Radical leftists are continually seeking to infiltrate and undermine American institutions.
    They are especially attracted to institutions where there are unearned wealth, sinecures, and ambiguous standards of accomplishment.

    5. Our people must always be seeking to restore America's tested, historic, foundational principles and to guard and protect our Constitution and our cherished institutions.

    6. Civility must never trump truthfulness.
    Civility is a highly commendable virtue; truthfulness is vastly more commendable.

    7. Ideology must never trump truthfulness.
    We Republicans need to constantly examine our own ideological principles to make sure they are, first and foremost, true. Then we must proclaim them boldly and straightforwardly.

    8. Never try to out-compassion a bleeding-heart radical leftist.
    Conservatism is the most compassionate -- and most truthful -- political philosophy there is. Radical leftism, by contrast, is based on false promises intended not to better the lives of anyone, but to recruit gullible, ignorant people as "useful idiots."

    9. Challenge radical leftists to live up to their own publicly proclaimed ethical principles.
    They never do. They just fake it. (Cf. Alinsky Rule #4: "Make the enemy live up to their [sic] own book of rules.")

    10. Refuse to use the favorite language of the radical left.
    Their language is always intended to spread lies and propaganda and to create confusion, fear, and retreat, not to convey truthful information.

    11. The language our people use should boldly convey real information accurately, precisely, and above all, truthfully.

    12. Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.
    This is Alinsky Rule #5, word for word, but we Republicans have a special advantage in applying it to radical leftists because ridicule or satire, to be really effective, must be rooted in truth. That's why leftist ridicule flops; it's usually based on lies.

    13. Attempting to reason with intractable, hardcore radical leftists will always end in futility.

    It reads like a document that would be handed out to street ‘operatives’ in 1930’s Weimar Germany

    Hyperbole (pronounced /haɪˈpɜrbəliː/ hy-PUR-bə-lee[1]; from ancient Greek ὑπερβολή 'exaggeration') is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally.

    Hyperboles are exaggerations to create emphasis or effect. As a literary device, hyperbole is often used in poetry, and is frequently encountered in casual speech. An example of hyperbole is: "The bag weighed a ton."[2] Hyperbole helps to make the point that the bag was very heavy, although it is not probable that it would actually weigh a ton.

    Unlike stuff that would be posted on MoveOn.org or something Soros would fap to




    3. Radical leftists are continually seeking to destroy America's historic foundations, particularly our Constitution.


    Granny Botox says "Elections really shouldn't matter"

    Posters here that never post in the Landing Strip should be banned, since they are obviously only here to spread bull**** propaganda.

    And this shows you right here that the Tea "Party" isn't a political party at all.

    It only took 3 replies to get a Nazi reference. I'm not surprised.

    Bit is more a Euro-Social Welfare Statist than the Tea Party are the Sturmabteilung.

    Hell, the Wisconsin protesters are more the Sturmabteilung than the Tea Party are the Sturmabteilung, if we really want to start making comparisons.

    Which side votes for Tyrany of the All-Powerful State again? On right, not the Tea Party.

    Actually, McCarthy was correct on Soviet spies in the US government.

    And everything on that list is absolutely true - one only has to peruse this forum for awhile.

    I would have expected better, but people like Glenn Beck seem to be the epitome of intellectual discernment for some. McCarthy was "correct" in the way a bulldozer is correct in catching a few weeds while destroying a field of healthy crops. Was Harry Hopkins a spy? Even Owen Lattimore... not to mention about 350 writers, composers, actors, directors, etc. who were blacklisted for dissent, which in McCarthy's world was synonymous with treason.

    Re the list, I'll let it speak for itself. The first line makes it an exercise in silliness which progresses to stupidity. The sad thing is that there are people out there who have a need to believe this sort of tripe.

    It's hard to take too seriously criticism of McCarthy, from posters with long and storied histories of admiration and support for Euro-style Social Welfare Statism and frankly Communist-lite ideas and ideology.

    Of course a communist would find anti-communism "bad".

    Ah, how quickly the libertarian loses his way. Once again, the labeling and pigeonholing are tiresome, but expected, sadly enough. I guess that sort of McCarthy tactic - call someone a communist to dismiss any and all their opinions - works for you. So you think old Joe was a good guy upholding the "American" way. Interesting.

    You're right War, it's like reading your posts about the Constitution.

    LMAO. I have yet to see a Republican that can use ridicule and satire effectively.
