Marching Orders for Democrats (DU via Boortz)
Neal Boortz Web Site (Nealz Nuze) ^ | 3/17/04 | Neal Boortz

Posted on 03/17/2004 10:48:54 AM PST by Jokelahoma

I searched for this and didn't find it. Hope it isn't duplicated!

Neal Boortz posted this in his "Nuze" site today. It's a portion of a DU thread. While it's likely nothing new, it is always good to have a reminder of just how the other side thinks.



By now I'm sure you've heard of ... a website where your Democrat neighbors can go to trade ideas and thoughts about this year's election. One of our alert listeners lifted a few postings on this website that I thought you might enjoy. Here, my friends, are your loving, compassionate Democratic neighbors at work. Why don't we all sit back and let them chose our next president ... waddaya say? Here's the first post:

As we've heard again and again recently, if we are going to beat this bunch of rule breaking GOP misanthropes, we're going to have to start fighting as dirty as they do. I started this thread for one reason, to get everyone's ideas on a list of things we as Democrats can consider to stop the takeover of this country. This isn't going to be a thread for the squeamish, or for the ideologically pure. Best to steer clear if that describes you.

Here are half a dozen ideas to get the ball rolling.

1) Get Republicans fired at your workplace, or fire them yourself if you can – In the belief that all activism starts with the grass roots, do us all a favor, and fire your Republican employees this week. There are legitimate reasons to fire virtually any employee, so avail yourself of them. Not only will it quit the gloating you're hearing around the office, it'll stop those donation checks they are getting ready to write. Might also teach them a bit of humility regarding the poor and the disadvantaged. They can be the "Pioneers" of "Unemployment Window A"

2) Pretend to be a Republican, and then cut down the next Republican that you have a conversation with. - The more public/crowed the place you do this, the better. Use whatever remarks you know are sure to make the intended impression. "You're no better than the liberal scum you claim to hate... get back into the kitchen... Just wait till we win next year and toss peons like you into the field or the workhouse... People in your income bracket don't have the right to be Republican or vote etc." If you need talking points, just observe in a Yahoo political chat room for a few minutes and you have all the right wing bile that you can use and quite possibly all that you can stand.

3) Create, plant and disseminate widely "news stories" that discredit GOP policies – A good way to do this is to print out stories in the visual style of a major newspaper or magazine (don't use the logo or other copywrited material, however) and theme them similarly to the ones that targeted John McCain's platform last presidential election. Make sure not to slander individuals directly. Leave stacks of the printouts where people are certain to find them – i.e. supermarkets, coffee houses, bars, community centers etc. As in #2 make sure to write these from the right wing perspective, for maximum effect on the target audience. Avoid digital media, as it's too easy to fact check, not that most GOP voters care to check these things anyway.

4) Contact the IRS and anonymously tip them off regarding prominent GOP contributors in your area. – Lets face it, they are likely tax evaders in any case (that's why they are GOP), so might as well have them go thru an audit and feel a bit of what it's like to have a hostile government prying into their affairs. The tax money you shake free will be a little payback to your community for the egregious tax cut they undoubtedly are enjoying.

5) Make sure that you're the only ride on voting day for a group of hard right types who live out of the way, and then don't show up. – This works best in low population density areas and poor right wing communities. Cultivate a group of right wing friends and make sure they depend on you for the ride on Election Day. Then don't show up. Every vote they miss is an uncontested vote on the blue side of the aisle. The right needs a taste of Florida 2000.

6) Impersonate Linda Tripp. – Whisper into the ear of GOP associates to encourage and get dirty laundry regarding their improprieties, and then make sure that information gets into the wrong hands. It's hard to brag about family values or think about politics when you're in a divorce court.

Are you really serious about winning the culture war? Do you mean it when you say it's time to fight fire with fire? Then channel that anger and let's hear some ideas. Given the thin skin of most conservative ideologues, it won't take much to have them running far away from such policies and tactics so we can all enjoy proper, principled political discourse in the country again. First, however, they need to be taught that fighting dirty burns them as much as it burns anyone.

BTW- if you want to take action beyond the intellectual consideration of these ideas, please do so on your own. This thread is meant for the mental exercise of these ideas. Don't involve DU.

And a response from another loyal Democrat:

tedoll78: I used to be an "I-won't-do-that" person, but now I want to win and prevent the major harm that the GOP would do. In the end, having more liberal leaders in power will save the country and world from more heartache/chaos/destruction/etc; the change for the positive worldwide will more than pay-back for these tactics.

Like someone above said, let's break some eggs.

My starting proposals:

1) Hand-out faulty polling locations & directions in GOP-heavy voting districs. Let's see how they like it for a change.

2) Go door to door as a GOP volunteer with absentee ballots; the GOP loves to vote absentee, right? And then throw the filled-out ballots away. Either that, or give them a faulty ballot with a bad address on the envelope, and then they won't vote on election day since they'd think they've already voted.

3) Volunteer for a GOP phone bank operation and talk dirty to old people on the phone. Think of the most obscene, anus-licking things you can comprehend, and go for it! And be sure to identify yourself as a Bush supporter.

4) Wear an 'I love george w bush' t-shirt in public and act like a major ass. Moon people, fart loudly, call people offensive names. Here's a favorite: Go to football games where the Army is playing and accuse the other team's fans of being unpatriotic for rooting against the Army. In other words, be absurd!

5) When a polling organization calls, give answers such that they reflect very very very poorly on the nation's condition. Tell them you're unemployed, or tell them that you make <$8000 a year.

6) Panhandle in GOP/swing neighborhoods where it isn't illegal. Get as many people as you can to join you; create the image of crisis. Hold-up a sign saying that you were downsized, or that your job was sent overseas. If you're a veteran, emphasize your loss of benefits.

7) Drop-off a stack of fliers at veterans' halls, hospitals, etc detailing the betrayal of the Bush administration. And, if possible, ask them if they're enjoying their tax cuts.

I just thought of these seven off the top of my head. Surely we can come-up with some creative strategies for making the GOP's image as irrespectable as possible!

There you have it, my friends. But remember ... it's the Republicans who are evil ... right?

Lying, deceitful, committing voter fraud, cheating to win elections... yet WE'RE the crooks and the dishonest ones. The hypocricy is damned near overwhelming.

It's good to see the Dem's idea of diversity has finally officially embraced hate.

Don't let it upset you. The people at du, and dems in general, are still crying about the last election. They blame the SC for the loss. But they forget that Gore didn't even carry TN, that there were major irregularities in IL (as ususal) and other places. You know, things like dead folks voting and all.

If you want to find out what they're like (at du), register and post to some of their forums. It can be fun and it will give you a real insight into the thinking of the democratic sheeples.

Um, excuse me ... but haven't a number of laws been broken here such as conspiracy to commit election fraud, etc?

I've seen some of these suggestions here for use on Democrats. I assume the DU post was in jest, as were the freeper posts, right?

There's nothing new here - getting political opponents fired, dropping a dime to the IRS, using disinformation to smear opponents, flying false flags and other dirty tricks. The Democrats have been doing all these things already for decades, in office and out. They invented these tactics, along with others not mentioned, like voting dead people, pets and illegal aliens, voting multiple times, stuffing the ballot box while serving as poll workers, using agents provocateurs to incite race riots, etc.

This is the only way Democrats ever get elected. None of it should surprise anyone.

Liberalism is a mental disease, obviously. OBVIOUSLY you say ?... Yes obviously..
Unless they are traitors with sedition, espionage and an agenda for insurrection as their FIRST option. And thats just the democrat party. there are worse agendas in american politics than that..

"I would think that if you understood what Communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees, that we would someday become communists." --Jane "Hanoi" Fonda, Michigan State University, 1970 AS John Kerry was in the audience for MORAL support..

I'm sorry, but this kind of thing makes me very, very heart sick. It is a tragedy beyond belief that these liberal thinkers truely embrace the belief that their way will win them global peace. Give up all our freedoms that our forefathers died to establish and wave a white flag to every other communist rougue leader in the world. It makes me want to fall on my knees and pray for God's intervention in a big way to save us.

The rants over at DU sound like they were once aligned with Hitler's Nazi SS. The Kerry political ads right off the bat claim Bush is a liar and he is using demonic campaign tricks to get re-elected. Then they continue to lie and bash the president for the next 30 seconds of their commercials. The dems are gearing up for a nasty election with an emphasis on lying and clouding the issues.

Good post, but I was under the impression that we weren't allowed to post anything from DU in this forum.
