Posted on 01/26/2013 6:44:39 AM PST by AnonymousConservative
This post requires that an individual understand the concept of political ideology as an r or K-selected Reproductive Strategy, presented here, under the link r/K Selection Theory.
Republicans are holding meetings now on how to move forward. A fundamental question is, how do we appeal to the Asians, Hispanics, Blacks, and whatever sub-group supposedly doesn’t like us of late. We will assume, for the sake of argument that the Republican Party, and the United States government is worth saving, which I will concede is arguable at this point. We will also assume that Republicans actually want to win, which, as Vox points out, is probably an even more dubious proposition.
There are several things to consider. First, you need to read and understand the material Heartiste presents. Social Dynamics are incredibly important. If you approach an individual as if they are an authority and you desperately want their approval, they will downgrade your stature to below their’s. They will then likely view you as unworthy of their approval as a result. If you approach them as an equal or superior, and seek an alliance, the dynamic is different, and many times, it will produce a different outcome. You are not trying to curry favor with these communities, you are explaining why you are better than the Democrats, and that you want to ally with them.
Second, it is probably most illuminating to examine the Liberal’s strategy, to see what they are trying to do and what they have done. From an r/K perspective, the r-strategy in Cuttlefish is to first get the K-strategists fighting. Then, the r’s avoid the fight themselves, and sneak in and mate on the sly while the K’s are occupied fighting each other.
Here, Liberals have sought to get K’s within these sub-groups fighting (because only K’s form in-groups, and then loyally fight for their own in-group’s interests). How have they done this? They first fracture the culture, by intimating that it is not only OK to be different, and celebrate your Non-Americanism, but it would be disloyal to your foreigner friends to not do this.
Suddenly, you have American K’s dividing up into Latino Ks, Black Ks, Asian Ks, and so forth. r’s, meanwhile play a strategy of currying favor with the newly fractured groups, against the evil interests of the American people. K’s fight while Liberals curry favor all around, hoping to avoid the damage. K’s endure the hardships of battle with each other, and Liberals endure nothing adverse. It is a brilliant strategy.
Note, some have made the case that various minority groups are r, but if the individuals within these groups were, they would be actively seeking to betray their own group’s interests, to curry favor with outsiders. Merely by showing loyalty to an in-group, these individuals are demonstrating a fundamental K-drive which would indicate a psychology that would naturally lead to Conservatism – if that loyalty were directed to America. Indeed, many of their kids, when taken into the Marine Corps, or other service branch are innately primed to throw that loyalty to America. Loyal Americans, primed to show loyalty to America, regardless of race or creed, do not vote for Liberals or Democrats, as evidenced by the Republican surge after 9/11. It was then that we all pulled together as a country, patriotically (something Libs at the time found terrifying).
Unfortunately these things are best headed off before they begin. Now today, however, Libs have the country fractured, and groups are fighting. What to do? You could try to use shame to appeal to the groups to throw their loyalty back to the nation. This will work with any group, but to make this interesting we will deal with Hispanics, who have been much more successfully made to view America as a foreign country, second in importance to their Latino/Mexican cohort.
First, approach the Latino group’s leaders as equals, but apologetically, and explain, we feel deeply that we can’t do anything about immigration now, because we have a real jobs crisis in this country. To support bringing more workers into the country, when Americans now can’t find work, would be disloyal to America, and fellow Americans, and you just can’t do that, on principle. Notice, you don’t call them disloyal outright, you just point out apologetically, that you can’t do what they want, because you feel it would be disloyal to your country, ie their country too.
This drives Narcissists (as will gravitate to lead such movements) wild, because you didn’t out and out call them disloyal or unpatriotic, so they can’t explode in rage. In fact, although they will see the implication immediately, they will feel that most people may not have noticed that this is a logical conclusion of your argument. As a result, they will be hesitant to oppose what you said, for fear of calling attention to this fact. To stand up and say you called them unpatriotic is to finish a line of logic you left unfinished, and point out to everyone that there is a line of logic which says they are a traitor to their countrymen.
In my experience, Narcissists will first be quiet, and stop all opposition. Second, they will be horrified inside that someone just said they are disloyal, and yet they can’t respond to contradict it. And third, the aversive stimulus their amygdala will release will make them try to avoid that line of dialog in the future, and that will often entail dropping the entire subject. As this occurs, the fractured grassroots base, which is more composed of misdirected K’s, will see their leaders abandon this line of activity, as well as see the logic implying that such a line of action is disloyal to America, and they will care less about it themselves. It would need to be repeated, but that is what talking points and standard answers are for. Over time, they would develop an contravening amygdala pathway associating lobbying for foreigners over fellow Americans with being out-grouped in America, and the support for this would diminish in a manner proportional to the frequency of conditioning.
There is a second way to bring the Hispanics back into the American fold, however. Presently, Liberals have caused the Hispanic amygdalae to flag Republicans as an enemy. That is bad, because amygdala pathways are nearly impossible to erase. However, from a Cognitive Neuroscience perspective, note that the amygdala flags items according to importance. As a result, the easiest way to shut off that Republican enemy flag, is to replace it with a bigger flag, by creating a bigger battle, with a bigger enemy.
Presently Liberals are doing all sorts of things noxious to any normal person, if it is pointed out. They are basically destroying small business, so appeal to Latino business owners, showing them what an enemy the Obama administration is to them. Jobs are crap, because of Leftist economic policy, so argue Latinos can’t find jobs because of Leftism, and show them why. Healthcare is going to be an abomination shortly because of Leftist policy, if England is any measure. Highlight, in personal terms, how bad that is going to get, and show, in personal terms, that this Leftist push will, inevitably, result in health rationing that will kill some of the people Latino Americans care about. Highlight that Leftist don’t care. I could go on, but you get the picture. Liberals are the enemy. Programming like this is surprisingly easy to do. Look at how George W. Bush is now viewed as an empty-headed, callous, war-mongering tool, and you get the idea. All it takes is repetition, and these neural pathways are laid.
Right now, probe the Hispanic amygdala, and you will find a part dedicated to immigration, which sees Republicans, and fires off aversive stimulus, flagging them as an enemy. But there is much more amygdala there, sitting empty, and just waiting to be filled with aversive stimulus towards the Liberal movement.
You need to look at it like programming Pavlov’s dog, and begin creating perceptions that their beef with Republicans is minor compared to how the Liberals are screwing them – and especially their kid’s futures. As you do, subtly nudge them to view these problems of theirs as America’s problems as well. Once we have common problems, and common enemies, you can pull them in as allies, and begin to fuse the fractured America together again into one nation, allied against leftism. Nothing can unite two people like a common enemy who needs to be destroyed, and so it will be with the fractured parts of America which the Left has created for their own ends.
This is why I cringe when I see what Rove did with that $300 million in the last election. That could have been a ton of aversive stimulus for Liberals, which would have proven additive every election cycle, since amygdala pathways cannot be easily overwritten, and even if overwritten, are reactivated with the slightest reinforcement stimulus. Instead, that money was all wasted – and worse it was wasted in a way which yielded no long term demonization of Liberals, that would have stayed with the populace. It was totally wasted, with no effect.
Which brings me to my final point. To do this, Republicans have to want to win. They have to be willing to stand up and call Liberals cowards and traitors, and highlight that they seek to fracture our country for their own personal benefit, and destroy our economic system out of envy for the successful. They have to be willing to get in an argument with Bob Sheiffer, and then use dog whistles and amygdala hijacks to give him a stroke, live on air. They have to view Liberals as worthless traitors who deserve a lot more than the mere outcast status the Republicans are inflicting upon them. In short, Republicans have to want to save this country so badly, that they are willing to speak simple truths.
Sadly, given their performance thus far, I think we are all best served merely preparing for the collapse.
My mother has been using your system for years with some success. Watched it happen to the Obamaphone lady too with Alex Jones.
Well, this is pretty much unreadable. You might be brilliant, but who would ever know?
You need an editor!
Rove’s 300 million was not spent in pursuit of a conservative victory; it was spent to preserve the status quo and maintain his position, not improve ours.
Part of the republican plan should be to hire a few PR firms to market and brand; now would be a good time.
We also need to create IMAGERY. We need to tour Detroit, Philadelhia, Chicago, Newark and other big democrat controlled cities and SHOW the ACTUAL damage done by democrats and democrat rule. Don’t soften the message one single bit.
This is from 2007 an the damage is far worse now.
City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level (pop. 250,000+)
(U.S. Census Bureau, 2006 American Community Survey, August 2007)
1.Detroit , MI 32.5%
2.Buffalo , NY 29.9%
3.Cincinnati , OH 27.8%
4.Cleveland , OH 27.0%
5.Miami , FL 26.9%
6.St. Louis , MO 26.8%
7.El Paso , TX 26.4%
8.Milwaukee , WI 26.2%
9.Philadelphia , PA 25.1%
10.Newark , NJ 24.2%
Democrat Party Rule in these Cities
1.Detroit, MI hasnt elected a Republican mayor since 1961
2.Buffalo, NY hasnt elected one since 1954
3.Cincinnati, OH since 1984
4.Cleveland, OH since 1989
5.Miami, FL has never had a Republican mayor
6.St. Louis, MO .since 1949
7.El Paso, TX has never had a Republican mayor
8.Milwaukee, WI since 1908
9.Philadelphia, PA since 1952
10.Newark, NJ since 1907
Go into the barrios and slums and take pictures of what their ‘leaders’ insist are someone else’s fault while never leading the way out and ask why their ‘leaders’ don’t live among them but continue to support and live among those who they say hold them down.
Create a democrat scrapbook. SHOW them why they are disproportionally unemployed, murdered, on welfare, along with many other things and SHOW how their democrat representatives and leaders live while THEY bury their dead. Name every single individual who represents themselves as leaders of these people whose voice is NEVER heard from the black college professors and preachers to the Hispanic leaders of LaRaza.
Do ANY of them live in slums or hovels?
SHOW it, don’t just tell it, because seeing is much more potent than words easily twisted and forgotten.
Let’s see how edited I can make this. From an evolutionary perspective, Liberals have rabbit psychologies, Conservatives have wolf psychologies. In species where these psychologies mix, like the Australian Giant Cuttlefish, the rabbit people like to see the wolf people fighting, so the wolf people will kill each other, and not kill the rabbit people. This is what Libs are doing here, only with the wolf people in the different races, vs the wolf people in the Republican Party. You actually see this in other animals. And the rabbit people there are promiscuous, single-parenting, supportive of exposing children to sex, and have no loyalty to any type of in-group.
The answer is not to fight the other wolf people, but to point out that the rabbit people embody everything we all find disgusting, and try to unite all the wolf people against the rabbit people.
God help me, if you tell me that all made sense like that, I may have to shoot myself.
Read the link on r/K selection, to understand this better. It is worth the effort.
Agreed. All of this poisons the Liberal brand in the minds of the group.
That’s great. People have been doing it off and on for some time. My hope is to quantify exactly how it is done, so it can be done on command. I think it is actually quite possible.
Thank you for the comment.
Yeah, Rove is a GOPe guy.
“Part of the republican plan should be to hire a few PR firms to market and brand; now would be a good time.”
I agree, but if you go by cognitive neuroscience, the branding which should be done is on the Liberal movement. Every dollar spent on demonizing Liberals in the eyes of the public is worth a thousand dollars spent on showing Republicans holding babies and kissing puppies.
You will never make people genuinely like Republicans - even we don’t. But show how Liberals will restrict freedoms, pansify America, and make us all into losers, and people will not be able to vote for the Democrat. It will have a real, lasting effect, versus the transient, ephemeral effect of positive advertising.
Worrying about minorities is weak and futile
You would have to turn too many to matter
Just kick up white voter turnout a few points and win
That takes a real conservative
Former Bushes are still running GOP and it shows
The creation of defectors from the liberal camp should be job 1, particularly liberals from the media. It is what they fear the most and they know their house of Goebbels (example: global warming) are vulnerable, ther gun grab an insanity in the face of high crime rates, their socialist hidden agenda revealing itself behind their tatty curtain of empathy.
Conservatives absolutely need to steal their media playbook. Imagine how America would look if conservatives controlled 90% of our media.
Good point. A dual approach on the branding thing is probably in order. As to your comment about wolves and rabbits and given the nature of the community organizer mentalites, I believe we will see a staged event soon. It is just a gut intuition on my part, but I can see a "Rodney King" type event in the spirit of the Nazi Crystalnacht(sp). It will be something like "dozens of defenseless blacks killed by white gunmen with AR-15's". The rabbits want the racial thing front and center with the added touch of "assault weapons". Cheez I hope I am wrong.
“Worrying about minorities is weak and futile
You would have to turn too many to matter”
I read somwhere we got a lot large percetnage ~28% of young Blacks, who think Liberals are stupid, and destroying the country so they don’t have jobs. I don’t doubt we could do it, and not compromise on our Conservative principles. Nobody of any race wants to support a party of pathetic traitors, who just envy everyone who has succeeded. We just haven’t branded Liberals that way yet.
“That takes a real conservative
Former Bushes are still running GOP and it shows”
True, on the Bushes. What a disaster when Reagan left.
“Imagine how America would look if conservatives controlled 90% of our media.”
Absolutely golden. I wonder how much of the media Rove’s wasted $300 million would have bought.
“The rabbits want the racial thing front and center with the added touch of “assault weapons”.
I suspect you are right. If you looked at the Travon Martin thing, that is clearly what they were doing. Gun owners hate Blacks, are killing their children, etc etc. It was the rabbit people trying to get the wolves fighting.
You are probably right, it will happen again, in bigger fashion, especially as resources start to get short, which is what really moves these things in other species.
Hey! I could actually read that because of what you explained to me last week!
The gift that keeps giving. It’s really a very good concept of political tactics.
The education system for those who have experienced it in part or whole have dumbed down the masses and for those who havent used the system they are on equal footing with those who have. The rot within society the “low information voters” are the these people, dependents of the state. The deliberate murder of the economy is another tool used to crush the “middleclass” the loss of jobs will fill the ranks even more. Sadly “if its free its for me” rules the day
Example: friend of mine has a small manufacturing plant. Business has been slow so she layed off most of her staff. Business has now picked up and she made calls to her crew to come back she has work for the forseable future. Everyone of them said no, why should I go back to work if I get unemployment and I can sit home. How do you compete with that when it seems unemployment now is a chosen life style?
Can’t last indefinitely. Sooner or later, scarcity will set in and the free money will stop. But by then, there really won’t be jobs to return to, because opportunities to rejoin the workforce will be what gets scarce and the loafers will start to riot.
I hope your friend was able to get a fresh crew minus the entitlement mentality. She had some real lulus there. Personally I can’t imagine choosing unemployment over work. Work should pay better.
These things, if nature is any guide, have a momentum, which causes them to overshoot the mark on each side. Sadly, as Liberalism rises, the mark being overshot is a decrease in societal order which will make competitiveness rise in response.
Once there is no money for unemployment (and much less government), your friend will have more potential hires than she will know what to do with.
Republicans can’t do anything. They are too busy acting like Democrats.
