The Radical Left Controls The Language. Conservatives Have To Step Up And Fight Back.
In the fight to save America, it's bad enough that we're severely outgunned in the mass media. With even Fox News being exposed as just another propaganda site for the globalists, conservatives are left with fewer and fewer places to get accurate information and have our voices heard. But what's equally bad is our failure to control the language even in those places where we're still allowed to speak. I'm referring to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, where people of all political persuasions mingle, but the voices of the radical left scream the loudest. Not only are they the loudest, they're also more skilled at using powerful language to create emotional responses.
Since I'm no longer on Facebook but I still have an active Twitter account, I'll use that platform to show some examples.
Here's a tweet from the hive queen, Nancy Pelosi:
"Republicans are holding middle class families hostage to pass their extreme MAGA agenda and give tax cuts for the wealthy. A default on America's debt would eliminate jobs, increase housing costs, and threaten retirement plans."
Note the language: she uses the expression "extreme MAGA agenda" to describe the negotiating process used by the GOP to win concessions from Joe Biden. This portrays Republicans as mean-spirited and callous, while completely avoiding the fact that Biden is 50% responsible for the stand-off. That's a classic tactic of the Democrats: pointing their fingers at others while never taking any blame for anything. Whatever is happening is always someone else's fault. Pelosi then goes on to use the emotion of fear to drive home her assertion, without providing any proof that a default would actually lead to the elimination of jobs, increased housing costs, or threats to retirement plans. But she doesn't have to provide proof, because once she invokes fear, proof no longer matters.
What makes the left's messages more powerful, however, is the repetition of labels and themes. In addition to a continuous portrayal of conservatives as evil and heartless, they use negative labels that are used by several different members of the Democratic Party cult at the same time in numerous posts across multiple social media sites. This is the same tactic used by advertising agencies that want you to buy their junk food and it's the same tactic used by propagandist's who are pushing vaccines or this week's war.
Just as Nancy Pelosi used the term "extreme MAGA agenda", look at how similar terms are used by other political operatives to influence public opinion into thinking "MAGA" is somehow bad for America:
Words are powerful, and the radical left knows how to use them. By repeating "MAGA" over and over in posts that attack Republicans, they've managed to turn something we should all agree upon, "Make America Great Again", into a something negative that should be avoided. And "MAGA" is only one term they use to their advantage. You'll see them use the same tactic on other issues, including climate change, Ukraine, COVID, and the trans agenda.
Sadly, the GOP and other conservatives haven't been united in using the same tactics to support our own positions. And as a result, the left looks powerful and united while we look weak and unorganized.
It's time for us to step up and fight back. Let's fight fire with fire. Let's repeatedly call them what they are: the radical left, Marxists, reckless, and irresponsible. Use these words and others over and over until they begin to stick and people's perceptions of the left begins to change. We cannot allow them to control the language anymore.
It's not enough to try and win the hearts and minds of the public: we have to show them what is truly in the hearts and minds of the extremists who are hell-bent on tearing America apart and handing it over to the totalitarian globalists.
