Since the Fake News of Russia hacking the election has been solidly debunked, liberals have invented a new fib to peddle in their seemingly never ending effort to comfort themselves with lies. Now they are saying, "Fine...Russia may not have hacked the election, but they influenced Trump voters."
This is such a typical liberal play for two big reasons.
One. It's completely unprovable.
All the liberals have to do is throw this accusation out there and keep repeating it. Their cohorts in the media are never going to ask, let alone demand, they produce one shred of evidence to support this. They put to burden of proof on Conservatives and Trump voters to prove we weren't influenced.
How do you prove that you weren't influenced by a messaging and propaganda campaign that either never existed or you never tuned into? You can't.
So their accusation is allowed to linger in the shadows and gets dredged up whenever some lib wants to attempt to delegitimization Trumps Presidential victory.
Two. Democrats floated this lie out there because it is the very tactic they use against their own voters. They think that because it works on their voters, it worked on us.
If there is one thing the Dems do well--it is influencing and convincing their voters to act against their own best interests.
How else can you explain why people in places like Detroit, a once prosperous and gleaming city that was full of potential until ravaged by Democrat policies, continues to vote for Democrats?
How else can you explain why black voters would register and vote for the same Democrat Party that spawned the KKK, and kept electing former klansman Senator Byrd to public office from 1947 until he died in office in 2010 at the ripe old age of 92? Byrd by the way was no run-of-the-mill klan member, he was a recruiter who rose to the position of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops--he was a true believer, i.e. racist.
How else to you convince people that Margaret Sanger's organization, Planned Parenthood, which was designed to commit genocide and obliterate the entire black race, is not only a "women's right" but a taxpayer obligation?
How else do convince millions of your voters who are hindered by nothing more than their own incompetence laziness that they are "victims" who need to be compensated by everyone else?
You influence them until they believe it. You repeat it, you print it, you teach it, you indoctrinate it, and you broadcast it until the deception becomes the truth.
Mirror imaging is when you project your values and culture on a person or group and believe they are, or will respond, like you. This is what the liberals are doing when they accuse Trump voters of being influenced by the Russians.
Because liberals are so completely susceptible to influence, they think the rest of us Americans are too.
Sorry to disappoint, but we aren't as
weak-minded as the simple libs who see their precious Hollywood icons making their ridiculous PSAs to vote a certain way and buy into the propaganda.
We aren't influenced by the not-so-subtle jabs and insults against Trump and Republicans weaved into sitcoms and TV dramas. In fact, after watching those, the only thing I was influenced to do was turn it off and cancel my cable subscription and cancel Netflix along with it.
And here is a big one, so listen up media, we aren't influenced by your Fake News, or Very Fake News.
Calling out the so-called "press" for bias and outright fake stories is not an attack on the 1st Amendment.
The 1st Amendment mandates that, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
The Democrats and liberals attacked the 1st Amendment when they used the IRS to silence Conservative charities by denying them 501/503 status.
The Democrats and liberals attacked the 1st Amendment when they paid thugs to commit acts of violence at Trump campaign rallies and prevented citizens from attending the Inauguration.
Neither Congress nor Trump has passed any law abridging freedom of speech or press.
Trump just called them out for their bullshit.
No, the leftist mind tricks don't work on us. But then again, Democrats aren't Jedi Masters either. They just have a constituency of droids.
