Narrative Wars: Slap the Honey Boo Boos with Truthaganda
PJ Media ^ | 9/14/2012 | Zombie

Posted on 09/15/2012 8:23:39 AM PDT by moneyrunner

Memo to non-leftist bloggers, reporters, and culture-shapers: TAKE THE GODDAMN GLOVES OFF.

This campaign just got real. From right now until election day, no holds are barred.

The mainstream media has dropped all pretense of impartiality. Their behavior in response to the latest Mideast crisis was blatant, outrageous — and effective. When the world erupted on September 11 and the Obama administration groveled at the feet of our barbarian attackers, the major news outlets — knowing that this was a disastrous turn of events for the Obama campaign which could not be spun in his favor — decided the only solution was to brazenly change the subject to a fabricated peripheral side issue: that Romney had committed some kind of “gaffe” by criticizing the government’s weak-kneed response.

As Obama’s dithering threatened to ignite a world war, a significant percentage of mainstream news outlets blared headlines like ROMNEY GAFFE DERAILS REPUBLICAN HOPES and ROMNEY WON’T BACK DOWN FROM FALSE CLAIM. Of course neither of these headlines (nor countless similar headlines over the past two days) was factually true: The only thing that transformed Romney’s rather mild criticism into a “gaffe” was that the media itself declared it to be so.

The MSM knows full well it manipulates The Narrative, and invariably does so to the benefit of Obama, the Democrats, and “progressivism” in general. And people like you and me know this full well too. But until now the media has at least feigned impartiality, not to trick us but in order to maintain credibility and influence over the Honey Boo Boos.

Who are the Honey Boo Boos? ....

It is one thing for blogers to get down and dirty, it is another (and more important) thing for Romney’s campaign to do so... and they ain’t.

I think that Romney and Ryan should call Obama "AWOL" at every campaign stop.

Keep hammering the meme that while Obama set records for days spent golfing and fund-raising, he missed two-thirds of his daily intel briefings, including missing all of them the week before 9-11-2012, and the day after!

Romney should just keep saying "Obama is AWOL! At least I will attend the daily intel briefs, like every other president before him!"

THis would be EXTREMELY effective, irrefutable, adn would cause the heads of the MSM to literally EXPLODE.

Look for the Romney/Ryan campaign to step up via the SUPER PACS.

One of the big things at the Republican Convention that made my blood run cold was the strong hawkish statements that were made. I think we have been at war in the middle east for a long time - longer than WWII. We have lost husbands, sons and family members and have been drained of our wealth. We have accomplished little and the relationship between these wars and the protection of our rights back home is strained. We are not freeing people there. They have a different world view and do not want our brand of freedom.

I believe it is a huge mistake to turn the dialog toward hawkish policies. Conversation about the empty chair is ok, but I believe you will begin losing women from the Republican vote if you go there.

OBAMA IMPOSES NEW BLASPHEMY RULES

This is still assuming too much of the HBB's, who most likely know nothing at all about the anti-Islamic film that supposedly started the mayhem. They will read the headline, "OBAMA IMPOSES NEW BLASPHEMY RULES" and immediately assume it refers to blasphemy against their Christian God, and then conclude that Obama did a good thing. Trust me, this is the level of intelligence associated with anyone who would watch "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." The only thing she read this week was the coupon she used to buy her jumbo bag of Cheese Doodles.

The reality southern (redneck) child beauty contest show “Here comes Honey Boo Boo” tied with Bill Clinton’s speech at the DNC for number of viewers. The ‘HoneyB’ voters are those who would rather watch that show instead of being informed politically.

These ‘HoneyB’ voters are also likely to believe the BOGUS POLLS showing Zero ahead of Romney. The lame-stream pollsters are weighting the polls according to 2008 turnout, which Rasmussen and other unbiased observers has said will NOT happen in 2012. Indeed, the voter enthusiasm is with the republicans, and is even HIGHER than it was in 2010. So polls based on 2008 results are OVER-SAMPLING the Dims. And the lame-stream keeps on putting out poll after poll using the 2008 percentages. They are exposed for the frauds they are if you look at the poll internals and see the weighting assigned to each party.

The lame-streams are doing this on purpose. I have actually seen Dim comments come up like “So this is a big conspiracy, huh? So ALL these polls must be wrong?”

ANSWER: You’re damn right these polls are wrong!

PROOF: Look at the Wisconsin Recall election. At 5pm on election day, all the media outlets said the exit polls predicted it would be TOO CLOSE TO CALL. These exit polls over-sampled the Dims EXACTLY like these bogus polls showing Zero ahead. Remember how Wisconsin turned out? Walker won 53-47.

Come on, Freepers, get aggressive! EVERY TIME you see a crap poll that over-samples Dims and predicts Zero is going to win, go to every site possible and leave comments that EXPOSE these bastards for trying to push their snake oil on us!

Agreed. And right after they lose, they’re gonna say it’s proof minority votes were suppressed and the results are fraudulent. How else could the polls have been so far off?!??

(I’m actually hoping the fraudelunt polls are stressing the ‘rat cheating!)
