The last five years have been a non-stop master’s class in the lies of modern western Leftism, and just when you think the deception cannot get any more obvious, brazen, and bold, they outdo themselves again.
We could fill tomes with the blatant lies of the left-wing corporate media, Washington Democrats, and Hollywood filth drawing on events from the last 400 days alone. But now, the White House Press Secretary for former Vice President Joe Biden has outdone them all.
She told reporters, “The Republican party was the party of “de-fund the police.”
This is madness on its face. Conservatives have always been the first to defend the police, even when it has been counterfactual and against their own interest in personal freedom. The remark has brought near-universal criticism her way, except for outlets like CNN and MSNBC who simply don’t cover the indecent.
The condemnation came mostly from Republicans, not surprisingly. The common response has been to cite case after case proving the opposite of Psaki’s claim. But this is the standard mistake conservatives make in responding to the lies and the smears of the left. In other words, we should take this not as yet another lie to debunk. We should take it as an opportunity to improve our rhetorical tactics.
To begin, we must understand that the Republican party is built on the desire to be left alone, to be honest, and to preserve what works. That being the case, our first move is always to be drawn in by the outrageous nature of Democrat falsehoods, to show anger, and to energetically correct them.
It isn’t that we should not disprove their lies. We should. But we should not do it directly in the public arena. We should write articles on our most respected outlets as a resource for other conservatives. But in front of cameras, in interviews for the tabloids, and on social media, we should portray ourselves as more reasonable. By responding with emotional counter punches, we look like willing participants in the fighting. This is rhetorically nonstrategic.
We should not let leftists lead us by the nose by spending all of our time responding to their lies in the negative. The distracted human mind does not hear negatives. It doesn’t respond to “no,” “not,” and the like. Like a baby, the distracted mind omits negative terms and only hears what remains.
Top democrat strategists know this. They understand human psychology, and they use it against us. While we stand around waiting for the weekend, hoping the truth will set us free, the Left is controlling us with our own outrage.
As far as Psaki’s statement goes, you can bet that 95% of Americans have not heard our rebuttals. All they have heard is a blatant lie. What she said is so obviously false that it needs no response. Anyone with a modicum of sense will hear and interpret it correctly, even democrat voters.
While we run around screaming “Liar!” the left is thinking up the next psychological attack it will launch on the American public.
