“The essence of propaganda consists in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, that in the end they succumb to it utterly and can never escape from it.” – Goebbels
“It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion.” – Goebbels
Read the Joseph Goebbels quotes again before you read this article. All of our media is the same. Newspapers from Maine to California and from Washington to Florida all have the same news in them. There is no investigative reporting in any media anymore, and there hasn’t been for a very, very long time.
It is why our communist leaning media is promoting Hillary Clinton, and disparaging Donald Trump at every turn. It’s going to get worse before the election and Hillary’s propaganda will grow exponentially before November 8th. But there is great hope, and the hope is Donald J. Trump.
Goldwater v. Johnson
In 1964, Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater was the GOP nominee for President. He had been looking forward to challenging his friend, John F. Kennedy, but after Kennedy’s assassination, he decided he would still run for president against Lyndon Baines Johnson.
Goldwater won the nomination over moderate Pennsylvania Governor William Scranton, and liberal New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller. He was the most conservative presidential candidate in decades, just like Donald J. Trump is today, and he defeated the eastern establishment Republican elitist, and globalist, Nelson Rockefeller. Goldwater actually suffered from a lack of support from his own GOP party, and his deeply held conservative policies were not widely accepted. Johnson, on the other hand, was preaching his anti-poverty programs known as the Great Society, while portraying Goldwater as a dangerous extremist. Goldwater warned us that socialism was coming, and he was right. We ended up with vastly larger government, welfare and Medicare/Medicaid. We cannot afford to do this again.
LBJ’s Political Ads
LBJ’s ads against the “dangerous” Goldwater were powerful. Fears of nuclear radiation were related by showing a child eating ice cream. One spot showed Klansmen burning a cross as a drawling voice-over read a KKK endorsement of Goldwater. Another began evocatively with a nighttime landing of Air Force One…the return flight from Dallas after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
The real watershed of the campaign was when Johnson put out the now famous/infamous “daisy” commercial.
Remember what LBJ gave us that Hillary will expand upon! LBJ’s Great Society and years of Democrat control over black communities nationwide have resulted in the destruction of black families, with poverty, rampant crime, drugs, failing schools, and government dependency. Just look at Chicago’s south side!
What Johnson used, and what Hillary is now copying verbatim is called psychological projection. For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting. Therein lies the key to Hillary’s attacks on Mr. Trump. She is what she blames Mr. Trump for being, and we can prove it. The same thing was true in the LBJ/Goldwater race.
The LBJ Playbook Hillary Loves
Two members of LBJ’s ad team were Sid Myers, former art director at Doyle Dane Bernbach, the campaign’s advertising firm; and Lloyd Wright, the Democratic National Committee’s media coordinator during the 1964 race. They worked wonders against Goldwater and made the unlikeable LBJ look good, and they’d love to do it again. I would just hope that Trump hires them instead of Hillary.
They used several tactics that could easily be used again, because this race is so very similar to the Goldwater/LBJ race of 1964.
Goldwater’s congressional experience and his statements of policy were attacked in 1964. Now, Trump’s statements on policy will be used like a voting record to attack him.
If Trump moderates on any policy; immigration, taxing the rich, abortion, veterans, deportation, stopping the influx of refugees, etc., the commercials used will show his differing statements. Then they will ask, which is the real Trump?
In the 1964 primary, Goldwater’s opponents, Scranton and Rockefeller, said terrible things about him. The statements by those two men were used right before the general election to bash Goldwater by his fellow Republicans. This same tactic is already in Hillary’s bag of tricks, and I would bet we’ll hear a whole lot of statements from Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush…all stacked in a powerful commercial against Mr. Trump. Their statements are lies of course, but powerfully put together nevertheless.
Ads from the Goldwater era were actual graphics of what the Senator had said, and Hillary can and will use the same thing, possibly with photos of truckloads, trains and ships of Mexicans being sent back to Mexico.
In an interview these two men did with Politico, they said they’ve got a bag of tricks all ready for this campaign.
Here comes the fear tactic, just like the one used by LBJ in 1964. Again, it’s the same thing, and the person we really need to fear, is none other than the one using the tactics, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
When Hillary gave her speech in Reno, NV, she spoke about Alt-Right, a term she made up and which none of her supporters understood prior to her speech. She claims the Alt-Right is the “fringe” of the Conservative Right and is racist.
In her speech, she said that Mr. Trump was an angry white supremacist who hates immigrants. She stated, “From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties…Tell me with whom you walk, and I will tell you who you are.”
The commercial she ran against Trump stated he was endorsed by the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the KKK in Virginia. The MSM devoted an entire week, and they continue in smearing Mr. Trump, in order to distract the electorate from the scandals of her emails and the Clinton Foundation. And it’s all total poppycock! She quotes from none other than filthy Morris Dee’s Southern Poverty Law Center.
Hillary and the KKK
“People who live in glass houses…” doesn’t seem to bother Hillary. Clinton was endorsed by a KKK Grand Dragon, Will Quigg. A prominent member of the KKK announced earlier this year that Hillary’s presidential campaign has received more than $20,000 in donations contributed by their members. She has disavowed the association, but kept the funds, donated anonymously.
Hillary’s good friend, former U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), was the founder and recruiter of the West Virginia chapter for the KKK. In the 1940s, he obtained the rank of “Exalted cyclops” and spent decades promoting their vile, racist messages. Remember too, that Sen. Byrd took part in what was, at the time, the longest filibuster ever against the Civil Rights Act. Byrd recruited over 150 people to the KKK.
Senator Byrd made the statement that, “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.” And in a letter to Mississippi Democrat Senator Theodore Bilbo, Byrd wrote, “I will never submit to fight beneath that banner with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
None of Byrd’s statements meant anything to Hillary. She praised Byrd and called him, “my friend and mentor.” Here is the video of Hillary’s comments on his passing.
Trump Loves All Americans
Trying to claim Trump is a racist is beyond the pale. In my article, Donald Trump Upset the Applecart of Racism 30 Years Ago, Trump derailed the racism in Palm Beach society when he allowed blacks and Jews into his Mar-a-Lago club.
Back in 1998, and 1999, none other than Jesse Jackson introduced Trump and said, “Donald Trump is a champion of minority empowerment.” Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’ DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.” Here is the video of Jackson saying Donald Trump is a champion of minority empowerment. Or at least he used to before the turn of the millennium.
Dr. Ben Carson has endorsed Trump long ago, and often introduces and speaks for him. Pastor Mark Burns, co-founder of the NOW television network, one of the many black pastors who met with Donald Trump, announced his support for the Republican presidential hopeful and shared the large amount of praise Trump received from his religious colleagues.
Diamond and Silk have gone all out for Mr. Trump, and have even spoken at his rallies.
Medger Evers brother, Charles, also endorsed Mr. Trump. He is 94 years old and was also a Reagan supporter.
Alicia Garza is the leader and co-founder of Black Lives Matter, and she sat down for an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek and answered various questions about the problems with racism and the way it is addressed in America. In the interview, Garza said, “Hillary Clinton’s actions do not indicate she cares for the black community. The Clintons use black people for votes, but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.”
Perhaps the biggest shock statement of the interview is that Garza said the black community is not “indebted” to the Democratic party in any way, which is a stark contrast to how the democrats feel about the black vote. Hillary feel like she has it locked up, but she’s clearly wrong.
Louis Farrakhan has actually endorsed Trump, and what he says in this interview with Alex Jones, most conservatives would agree with. I’m certainly not a fan, and most of what Farrakhan says is anathema to Christians and white Americans. Yet, he too endorses Mr. Trump.
Prior to Mr. Trump’s campaign for president, black leaders were friends and admirers of Donald J. Trump, and many of them still are.
So, who is the Racist?
While Donald Trump was building a business and creating jobs for thousands of people, Hillary was working for leftists and radicals.
She was actively promoting Alinsky’s book, Reveille for Radicals, and wrote to Alinsky that she missed her conversations with him and was waiting for Rules for Radicals to come out so she could recruit more people, “When is that new book [Rules for Radicals] coming out—or has it come, and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation? I have just had my one-thousandth conversation about Reveille and need some new material to throw at people…The more I’ve seen of places like Yale Law School and the people who haunt them, the more convinced I am that we have the serious business and joy of much work ahead.”
Unlike Hillary Rodham, Donald Trump never worked for any of these types of people, and neither did he ever write them letters, praise them, or accept funds from them.
So who is the real racist? Who associates with the racists, with the parents of thugs and murderers, with radicals, communists, and subversives? And who has praised them and accepted their donations? Just who should we fear?
Judging by Hillary’s criteria, she is the racist and extremist who is the most dangerous, and she must believe like her friend and mentor, Robert Byrd, who said that blacks are mongrels.
Remember what Hillary said in her Reno speech…“There’s an old Mexican proverb that says, ‘Tell me with whom you walk, and I will tell you who you are.’”
Well, Hillary, we know with whom you walk!
