Skip to comments.A Small Social Experiment on the Effectiveness of Media Brainwashing
Posted on 05/26/2017 6:22:58 PM PDT by davikkm
With recent denouncements of President Trump and the entirely unsurprising calls for impeachment (that were in fact being called for by the same people before he even took office), coupled with the fact that yesterday marked 18 years to the day that the Clinton impeachment began, I thought I might try a small social experiment to find out just how much work has been done by the Liberal media to brainwash todays youth.
This is an incredibly unscientific experiment, but every word is true.
Not being an American, I do pride myself on having a fairly good grasp of American politics and political history for a foreigner. I know for example that Andrew Johnson, the 17th President, was the first President impeached under the Constitution. I also know that Bill Clinton was the second President impeached. But I wondered how many of the younger Americans I work with would actually know any of this.
I set out three questions to ask the people individually (they range in ages from 25 to 30):
How many Presidents have ever been impeached? Who were they? What can a President be impeached for?

It is simple Pavlovian conditioning and it has been wildly successful.
The only surprising thing is there has been as much resistance as there has been. Some people just will not be brainwashed.
It’s getting to be more and more successful. I’m increasingly coming across people who know to their core that Hillary’s a vindictive, conniving and lying witch. And yet they still parrot the mass media lines that Trump’s awful.
Amusingly, three seconds of questioning causes their position to fall apart - you know, the media never bothered to supply those answers and usually at that point, I’ll raise my finger and ask...why don’t they?
I’ve deprogrammed a couple people so far, but most blithely continue on with how they must have missed those answers on a night when they weren’t watching.
I know the answers to those questions, but I was homeschooled.
Most college students would not know. Many can’t tell you things even more basic. They’re not very good at making change or changing a tire either.
Attendance was required of them, not learning.
No brain to wash.
Lincoln explained quite well
"You can fool some of the people all the time,
And you can fool all the of the people some of the time
But you can not fool all of the people all of the time."
The DemonRATs and their lap dog media are working on that third line.
Good experiment. It should be done on a larger scale.
It would be interesting to know what questions you use to take apart the group think against President Trump.
It is my belief that much of this hatred against our President is a result of the exploitation of hate. Hate has its addictive qualities and the manipulators use it for the power they gain from it.
I’m not even going to read your blog.
Cute trick, salting your posts with various Brietbart articles amongst your actual blog posts though.
