Kavanaugh Allegations are Psychological Terrorism and itís Time They End
Conservative Firing Line ^ | October 4, 2018 | Jim Simpson

Posted on 10/04/2018 5:15:37 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

The left’s smear tactics have come on full display during the surfeit of attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Whether you support or oppose this SCOTUS nomination, the tactics being used are more extreme even than during the Clarence Thomas hearings.

But as we know, they are nothing new, and Democrats will continue to use them until the American people scream “Enough!” — because they are effective. The real goal is psychological terrorism—that is, engaging in a scorched-earth effort to destroy the target, and in so doing intimidating anyone willing to enter public service, or even just support a public figure that does not parrot the politically correct line.

The charges do not need to be true, or even credible. People do not recoil because of the charges themselves (although, as we see, the left spares no effort to dream up the worst accusations they can think of). People recoil out of fear.

This tactic relies on the human herding instinct. People naturally shy away from anyone so vilified, whether the charges are credible or not, simply out of fear of being smeared with the same brush. They don’t want to be ostracized by the group.

Such excommunication has real consequences on reputations, jobs, relationships, even survival. The real goal is to threaten the rest of us into silence. How many people, for example, never used Donald Trump yard signs or bumper stickers out of fear of ostracism, or even property destruction?

People like and want calm and order in their lives. Democrats know this, and throw chaos and disorder at the public. They can keep it up so long that eventually it will break down the public, who will eventually agree with the democrats, even though they are the ones causing the chaos, just in order to get back to a peaceful calm.

I have long stated: We are in the middle of a Civil War. Psychological warfare is indeed part of the Dems arsenal.

A Trump sign will get you physically assaulted.

I learn ten years ago in Minnesota that any indication that you may be a conservative will trigger a violent response.

What has escaped me for some time is, when conservatives lose an election, they just take it in stride, console themselves and say “Well next time lets try a little harder” On the other hand when liberals / socialists lose an election or even if it looks like they are on the verge of losing one, they threaten with violence and good many of them may be ready to kill you. To me this suggests, unfortunately as it may be a lot of them are mentally challenged, or are not playing with a full deck, putting it kindly. Over the years I only have seen it getting worse and if it continuous I do not foresee a very promising future.

That is because Republicans are for the most part wussies. Let's look at a real warrior. We have one. Gen Mattis, calls sign Chaos.

“I have long stated: We are in the middle of a Civil War. Psychological warfare is indeed part of the Dems arsenal.”

That’s why I don’t believe all the big talkers bringing up two hundred million guns or such rot. We take it, and they know we will take it.

Kavanaugh is a victim of false sexual assault charges.

And a vast liberal socialist conspiracy to destroy him personally and professionally.

I’m now worried about how Kavanaugh will decide cases if he is confirmed to the Court. I fear his thinking will be: “I’ll show them how fair I am and that I’m not biased against them, even though they viciously savaged me and my family, by ruling in their favor 90% of the time.”

If 2 of the 3 rinos vote against him, that may turn out to be the best result for conservatives. Kavanaugh is a Bush boy. I’d rather see a Trump Republican on the Court.
