Political News Speak Ad Hominem Ad Nauseam Stupidity

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Some standard techniques used in propaganda and persuasion:
> Ad hominem
A Latin phrase that has come to mean attacking one’s opponent, as opposed to attacking their arguments.
> Ad nauseam
This argument approach uses tireless repetition of an idea. An idea, especially a simple slogan, that is repeated enough times, may begin to be taken as the truth. This approach works best when media sources are limited or controlled by the propagator.
> Appeal to authority
Appeals to authority cite prominent figures to support a position, idea, argument, or course of action.

For example;

There is no such thing as a welfare rancher. The “Welfare Rancher” term is political newspeak. Nothing but disingenuous political propaganda used by dishonest people. You want to talk about the entire financial aspect of that false claim then you prove it with documented factual evidence using a professional accountant and a breakdown of all of the costs involved including all taxes payed by the rancher. If you’re honest then you’ll see that the welfare claim is a lie.

Ranchers pay a lower lease rate for government public land managed by those holding public office that is less than what they would pay if they were leasing private land because the private land owner maintains the gates, fences, water distribution, springs, seeps, ponds ditch and sprinkler irrigation, wells run off public utilities power or solar power, and roads, cattle guards. And carries all of the insurance required for a commercial venture. On the public lands the rancher provides all materials and maintenance of all of that and carries commercial liability and Work Comp insurance and pays income taxes quarterly. They have been paying up and proving up since day one..

Another example;

The “game farm mentality” is nothing less than political newspeak.. Just anti hunting propaganda.. Hunting USFS Wilderness and national forest lands could never be honestly defined as a game farm mentality because in the game farm hunt experience everyone gets their game. Not so in the real hunting wilderness world.

Another example is conspiracy theorist;

Conspiracy theorist is a legal term created by the CIA in the 1960s. Essentially anyone critical of the governments conclusions concerning various conspiratorial events is labeled a conspiracy theorist. People who doubt the Warren Commission Report, or the 9/11 Commission Report are examples. The UNEP Global Biodiversity Assessment, Agenda 2100 documents being implemented into all aspects of national and international laws/statutes is another example, even though it is true and those ideologies should be critically challenged and openly discussed they are not.

Some clues.

Some history;
CIA Document 1035-960
Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report

RE: Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report

3. Action. We do not recommend that discussion of the assassination question be initiated where it is not already taking place. Where discussion is active [business] addresses are requested:

a. To discuss the publicity problem with [?] and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors), pointing out that the Warren Commission made as thorough an investigation as humanly possible, that the charges of the critics are without serious foundation, and that further speculative discussion only plays into the hands of the opposition. Point out also that parts of the conspiracy talk appear to be deliberately generated by Communist propagandists. Urge them to use their influence to discourage unfounded and irresponsible speculation.

b. To employ propaganda assets to [negate] and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passing to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (I) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories. In the course of discussions of the whole phenomenon of criticism, a useful strategy may be to single out Epstein’s theory for attack, using the attached Fletcher [?] article and Spectator piece for background. (Although Mark Lane’s book is much less convincing that Epstein’s and comes off badly where confronted by knowledgeable critics, it is also much more difficult to answer as a whole, as one becomes lost in a morass of unrelated details.)

BS political news speak is going on all around us. It is lies. That is what propaganda is.. Defamation of character or activity based upon incorrect information. Lies.

Time for the lying fools and the News Speak Propaganda they use to hit the road..

Don’t let them make a fool of you..
