In an age of increased prosperity, why have leaders on the left chosen racial division to drive a wedge between American citizens? As a strategy, the left has created a climate of social anxiety to prevent their followers from leaving due to terrible policies, and understanding their rights are slowly being taken away from the self-proclaimed party of purity. They attack their opponents using violence and an onslaught of subjective language to imply racism without any facts to back it up. For example, they use blanket statements such as “Whites owe African Americans reparations” or “Institutional Racism.” These statements are used to dehumanize people that do not share their particular ideology. It also distracts from the horrible policies they have enacted, which have created detestable living conditions in major cities. Inner cities where minority populations are densest have not prospered from democrat policies. They have suffered from a system that gives them enough to keep their votes while blaming Republicans’ for their failures. Having a sympathetic media willing to discard journalistic ethics, has given the left a megaphone to disseminate false narratives supporting these outlandish positions. Unfortunately, these tactics are all too real and will have lasting consequences on our republic’s future.
“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.”
