Goose-Stepping Towards The Election

Leftists say voting Republican makes you basically Hitler. But did you know you are the concentration camp guards too?

You hear the hyperbole all the time on social media from media figures and random online trolls, comparing conservatives to Nazis. It’s getting really old and cliché at this point. But as much as you hear it from Leftist activists, you may have noticed that you don’t usually hear it from politicians unless they live in deeply liberal areas of the country like San Francisco or New York City. Most districts have a certain number of conservatives, and for obvious reasons, politicians don't want to stir up people at home more than necessary.

Well, one marketing genius wants to change all that. And when I say marketing genius, I mean he technically has some experience in the field. Donny Deutsch is a minor MSNBC contributor, wannabe TV celebrity, and former Chairman of a New York City advertising and marketing firm. Basically, he aspired to be everything that Trump was but only reached mild success at it.

As the head of the marketing firm Deutsch Inc., he was once paid to tell corporations how to reach John Q. Public, so he has some background in messaging. And now he’s bringing that brilliance to politics!

“We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy," Deutsch said on "Morning Joe."

"If you vote for Trump, you are ripping children from parents’ arms,” he added. "“What the Democrats have to do is make the next election a referendum on not who Trump is, but who you are."

“If you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going ‘you here, you here,'” Deutsch said.

It’s a mystery why marketing executives fail to understand and tap conservative American consumers. I mean, that’s EXACTLY what middle America voters want to hear! I cannot think of anything that will win back the white working class for the Democrats faster than accusing them of genocide. What voter wouldn't want to hear a candidate insult and berate them?

I can see Mr. Deutsch's ad campaign now:

Sieg Heil you bigot,

Do you want basic immigration laws enforced?

Then you want to personally imprison and murder millions of people.

Are you tired of paying outrageous taxes?

Then you are personally active in starving billions around the world, who just want a better life.

Are you sick of government regulations dictating your life and business?

Then you are personally marching whole families towards Sophie’s Choice.

Are you afraid of losing more liberties to totalitarian liberals?

Then you are personally pushing people with your own hands into ovens and gas chambers.

Don't be a Nazi! Vote Democrat.

I'm Out Of Touch, and I approved this message.

Brilliant!!! I’m voting for that guy! I can’t believe no one thought of this before.

If only Hillary Clinton had insulted working class voters, accused them of selfish motivations, and maybe even called them deplorable, she’d have won that election!

Deutsch evidently thinks voting for a candidate equates to taking personal responsibility for the candidate’s policies. So does he suggest a Nuremberg war trial for all Trump voters? In that case, how are we going to handle all the personal responsibility for Leftist voters for their degenerate policies? They have their own genocide going on with the unborn after all. Should each faction of voters take turns arresting the other?

The funniest part of Deutsch’s suggestion is that Trump isn’t even on the ballot this fall. It’s true his policies are to a degree, but plenty of Republican candidates don’t even like Trump. But just for argument’s sake, let’s say someone was Never Trump and only voted for Never Trump Republicans - are they still Nazis, Donny? I doubt that matters. If you’re not voting for extremist left-wing Democrats, you are literally a genocidal, blood-thirsty monster. And Godwin’s Law agrees - THAT is a winning argument.

Well said both of you. I don't like Trump. I didn't vote for him. My ideology is closest to Cruz/Lee/Paul.

The over-the-top attacks on Trump and Trump supporters pushes me toward political support of Trump because they highlight how dishonest and dangerous to a free republic that they are. That adds legitimately to the argument that we can't afford to allow them any power by withholding support from Trump for our legitimate reasons.

I'm not saying I'll vote for him in 2020, but I'm more likely to than if they were sane and rational, but still leftist.

I'm not alone. Read some of Clay Travis' stuff at outkickthecoverage.com. He's a libertian leaning moderate sports radio host. The left is pushing him toward Trump by their behavior. He's a former Obama and Johnson voter.

@RFlynn says: “Yep, stopped reading this article after the word, "Leftist...". Nobody is able to define what they mean by that, which is the point. “

Then @Cholorob dutifully chimes in with : “@RFlynn leftist = anybody who is in the opposition”

Wow, thanks, guys, for making my point for me, and doing such a good job of it, too. Actually, that would be “points”---plural. The first was going to be how radical Leftists value personal dignity so little (if they even acknowledge its existence) that they so freely just toss it aside in favor of making absolutely, utterly, insane and ridiculous statements. Not just making them, but making them loudly, and repeatedly, and doing their best to have them heard by as many people as possible.

It’s been interesting to see the death spiral, from “Wanna See How Stupid I Am?” to “Wanna See How Vicious and Nasty I Am?” I have to assume this decline in any kind of dignity is based on an assessment of what kind of rancid raw meat the Dem public wants thrown to them

Personally, I think they are playing to each other, in a kind of pseudo-political circle jerk, while decent and/or intelligent people are edging away in distaste. Seriously, who would want to be associated with people like this?

The second point, which I have made probably thousands of times, is that few of the howling mobs even know what they are supporting and enabling. Flynn and Cholorob are quite happy to strut their own ignorance (see comments on abandonment of any pretense of personal dignity, above……)

This is not the first time I have run into this kind of ignorance. I was once in a long discussion with a relative, whose entire “political” point of view could be summed up as “George Bush is an asshole!!!” I kept trying to nudge the conversation into actual political discourse, and he finally yelled at me “You keep saying Left this, Left that, LeftLeftLeft. Why can’t you talk without hurling that pejorative at me?” And the only possible response was “Oh my goodness, you poor thing, you don’t even know what you are supporting and enabling. You don’t even know what Left MEANS.” And now we have two of you saying, admitting you don’t know, either.

I’ve spent nearly two decades on political sites asking people who spout Leftist cant---which is, as we see here, seldom related to politics at all but just gleeful efforts to slime others, day in and day out to explain to me their political philosophy-----and none have. Well, ONE could-----he had read Marx and was won over. None of the others, and I do mean NONE, had the slightest idea that what they were doing, in their relentless but joyful efforts to savage an invented Other they identified as various Republicans, was supporting and enabling a political system.

So buckle up, boys, because this might be a bumpy ride. If you have the manly parts to stay with it, that is..

Imagine a horizontal line. Make it as long as you like, but it is a horizontal line. Now mark the middle, Mark with a zero, a rubber duckie, whatever. Now you should be able to see that there is a right side of that line, and a left side.

Now to the hard part. That line represents a spectrum of political philosophy. On the right side of the zero or the duckie is a political philosophy based on governance with most authority left to the people. It can, if taken alllllllll the way to the end till it is falling off the edge, mean anarchy----no government at all------but so few think that makes sense hardly anyone ever even approaches it.

In 21st Century American politics, the approach of most on the right side of that duckie is represented by the Constitution of the United States, which says that the federal government is severely restricted as to size, scope and power (as laid out in the few enumerated duties of the federal government) and that most authority is left to the states, or to the people.

This is what the Right means in the United States. It doesn’t mean any of the emotional crap assigned to it. It is a POLITICAL position, not an emotional one based on ISSUES. Or PERSONALITY. Or hair or shoes or any of the other stuff you guys find so compelling.

Now to the Left. To the left side of the duckie, there are gradations of how big and how powerful the federal government can and should be-----but once that size and scope go beyond what is laid out in the Constitution, it IS Left. At that point the only question is “how far left”? How big should the federal government be allowed to be? How much authority should it have?

Basically, Leftism is a political philosophy based on two things: a powerful Central Authority, with the ability to control most aspects of the lives of people living under it, and collectivism, which is the group instead of the individual. This is why the Left is so much about redistribution of property. It is about equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity, so it is based on taking everyone everyone owns, putting it all in a big pot, and then dividing it equally among everyone, regardless of who put in the most, who did nothing to earn anything, etc.

What we are seeing, as you two so brilliantly pointed out, is not a huge movement of actual political analysis of how to govern the country, which is basically the definition of real politics. What we are seeing is a movement of people driven by a need to hate and a love of hurting other people, who are indulging in these negative emotions with the blessing of the actual political Left because you, if in large enough numbers, can create distractions and even influence votes, even though you really have no idea what you are really doing.

You are tools, mindless tools blissfully unaware of how you are being used as you dutifully suck down the lies you are fed and even more blissfully regurgitate them on sites like this. You not only don’t realize you are being herded by the Left, you don’t even know what the Left IS.

“LEFT” is not just a word that means anyone who disagrees with you, as Cholorob so brilliantly announced. It is an actual, official, defined political definition for an actual, defined, political system-----and it has an actual, defined, history of failure in every single country in which it has been allowed to fully develop and enact its political philosophy. It is a political system dependent on reduction (and in some cases elimination) of personal liberty, and has always resulted in economic misery.

People who care, learn. People who don’t care and just get off on savaging others just do what makes them feel good, in total and blissful ignorance, happy to be mindless tools.

@aprilmoon Agreed. That's why I posted the picture of the Heady/HUYAT --as that's the only trophy he'll ever be qualified to win.

@MistyBat: Again with the insults. Why are NeverTrumpers some of the most bitter, petulant people I've ever come across? Excluding the Left of course. For a group who, among other things, complain that Trump is a bully most of you are quite insulting and degrading to those you disagree with.

Deutsch is off-putting. Really. I want to know why he occasionally appears on TV.
