  • Dick move: Erick Erickson won’t admit he was wrong about Michael Brown

    08/22/2014 1:15:11 AM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 47 replies
    Just a week after Michael Brown was shot– before any concrete facts had emerged– Erick Erickson placed blame squarely on then-unnamed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson specifically, and a racist America, generally… Must We Have a Dead White Kid? The facts that seem undisputed, and in these situations that is so rare, are that an unarmed eighteen year old named Michael Brown was walking in a street. An altercation occurred with a police officer. Undisputed is that the officer gave chase to Mr. Brown after the scuffle and shot Mr. Brown, at least once in the back.

    The below apology from Jahan Wilcox, which was posted by Chairman Priebus, is appreciated by RedState, as is the severe reprimand that we were told was administered. Unfortunately, the willingness of some within the ranks of the party apparatus to demean, and sometimes even work against, conservative candidates has grown this primary cycle.

    The idea of granting illegal immigrants a form of legal status — but without the possibility of citizenship — has the backing of two Republican U.S. Senate candidates in Nebraska. Sid Dinsdale and Bart McLeay both said it would be a good compromise toward ending the nation's long-standing dilemma over what to do with an estimated 11 million people living in this country illegally.

    Mediaite ^ | January 28, 2014 | Andrew Kirell
    On Tuesday evening, Fox contributor Erick Erickson responded to Greta Van Susteren‘s blog post calling him a “jerk” with a blog post of his own. In a RedState post, Erickson gave thanks to Van Susteren for turning the country’s attention to “abortion lover” and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, by way of attacking him. Van Susteren was incensed by several of Erickson’s tweets referring to Davis as “Abortion Barbie” and using condescending language towards the female lawmaker. “I don’t care how much you disagree or agree with Texas’ Wendy Davis, you have to agree that this guy, Erick Erickson, is...

  • Liberals and Groupthink: the Narrative Is King

    Clash Daily ^ | 13Oct13 | Allan Erickson
    Neanderthals and Narcissists in the age of incoherence. ”Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an incorrect or deviant decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative ideas or viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences.” (Source: Wikipedia) One of the stark ironies in this age of incoherence is the clash between post-modern presuppositions, and reality. For example, the prevailing presupposition appears to be: we can print money endlessly, spend this...

    I remember it so clearly — a memory you can only remember so clearly when it is from sadness. You can’t let it go. I was sitting in the mud by the rear passenger side tire of my old Acura cradling my one year old in the steady, driving rain. I was sobbing doing my best not to fall apart in front of my little girl. But the tears ran. My throat hurt as I tried to suppress the guttural cries I wanted to cry there in the mud. RedState, which got up and running in 2004, was out of...

    The most difficult thing to explain to your average Republican voter is how people like David Dewhurst, Charlie Crist and all the establishment, ladder-climbing, butt-kissing, near permanent political staff flacks who grow up to be lobbyists they put around them literally hate you, me, and conservative fighters like Ted Cruz. And newsflash — it’s not just Washington, but in state capitols throughout America, just like Austin. I have many good friends in Austin and one of them overheard the following conversation yesterday a few blocks down from the Texas State Capitol Building. Trust me, folks, this is just a glimpse...

    In those eight years at National Security and then at State, our relations with Russia deteriorated though she was an expert in that field. Central and South America went to pot as well, the ramifications of which still have not been sorted out. She was one of George Bush’s most trusted advisors and her supporters would have you believe that everything bad that happened, happened because of Cheney and Rumsfeld. The problem is that this ignores the Americas and Russia, areas where State played a big role.

    In the past twenty-four hours I have gotten a lot of heat from friends over my take on what John Roberts did. What’s done is done and I really could not get all worked up about it because Obamacare in the Courts has been such a distraction. Yet again the GOP expected a court to save them from something they did not like. The GOP has largely turned its nose up at the tea party, which is its salvation. The tea party movement provided the GOP with the energy, man power, and money to take back the House in 2010...

    [SNIP] My plan that Thursday had been to travel to Camp David to cover the G8 Summit that was convening just 15 miles from my Maryland home. But when I began reading Walker's account of his tangle with Kimberlin, I soon spotted the name of a Democrat campaign consultant, Neal Rauhauser, described as an "associate" of Kimberlin. This was clearly newsworthy, and raised the story above the level of a squabble between bloggers. Rauhauser is a self-described "hacker," and in 2010 was accused by Tea Party activists of organizing a campaign of online harassment known as "TwitterGate." This apparent connection...

    Yesterday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on The Laura Ingraham Show and ripped into CNN contributor, radio talk show host, and RedState.com editor Erick Erickson. Erickson has been a consistent critic of McConnell’s; he recently stated in Roll Call that McConnell is “an appropriator before he’s a Republican.” McConnell responded, “That’s entirely inaccurate. I don’t even know who Erick Erickson is, but he has no audience as far as I’m concerned.” This was essentially an attack not just on Erickson, but on the new media as a whole. It suggests that those on the internet have no credibility, and...

    Erick Erickson, the RedState founder who helped usher in the Rick Perry presidential candidacy at a convention the website put together in August, is now calling on the Texas governor to bow out ahead of the South Carolina vote for the sake of conservative unity: If Rick Perry stays in the race, conservatives opposed to Mitt Romney will be legitimately able to blame Rick Perry for dragging down either Newt or Santorum. If the person he endorses doesn’t win the nomination, it still doesn’t hurt him as much as staying in to take a few deciding votes. Huntsman has already...

    Well, it is official. Eric Cantor and John Boehner — particularly Eric Cantor — have decided they don’t need or want conservatives and, more troubling, do not have any intention of trying to win at the polls by forcing Democrat hands on Obamacare. Our leadership is behaving badly. Last week and on Monday I mentioned Rep. Steve King’s effort to repeal Obamacare and start over. He’s filed a discharge petition. If he gets 218 signatures, Nancy Pelosi must hold a vote. At the time, I was hearing that Eric Cantor was desperate to undermine Steve King’s efforts and, sure enough,...

In a document provided POLITICO that Media Matters plans to post on its blog Tuesday, the group accuses Erickson of having a “long history of incendiary, sexist and racially charged statements.” “If you need any further proof that the liberal media bias is a myth, CNN just hired someone who called David Souter a goat——ing child molester,” Media Matters Vice President of Research and Communication Ari Rabin-Havt told POLITICO. The document includes many other profane Erickson statements, including the vulgar phrase highlighted...

    For some time, I have been wondering how Obama has managed to fool so many people. This past week, with his strange speeches at the Dem getaway, the Prayer Breakfast, and his pseech on Friday for the stimulus package, it struck me that something very unorthodox is going on. The hyperconfidence, the anger, the strange gestures—something was very unusual. I chalked it up to being “unPresidential” but it is something more sinister. NLP—neuro-linguistic programming, hypnosis, something is making rational people drool over this overrated clown. I found something that made sense to me: Zero is using hypnotic techniques in speaking...

    Barack Obama's speeches contain the hypnosis techniques of Dr. Milton Erickson, M.D, who developed a form of "conversational" hypnosis that could be hidden in seemingly normal speech. Obama's mesmerized cult like worship by millions may be the result of this brazen use of these techniques. Obama's techniques are thoroughly studied and discussed in this article. Unless one knows about these methods, they are not noticeable, but once you know about them, they are obvious.

    "Is Barack Obama a brilliant orator, captivating millions through his eloquence? Or is he deliberately using the techniques of neurolinguistic programming (NLP), a covert form of hypnosis developed by Milton Erickson, M.D.? A fundamental tool of "conversational hypnosis" is pacing and leading - a way for the hypnotist to bypass the listener’s critical faculty by associating repeated statement More..s that are unquestionably accurate with the message he wants to convey. In his Denver acceptance speech, Obama used the phrases "that’s why I stand here tonight," "now is the time," and "this moment" 14 times. Paces are connected to the lead...
