Re: Winning Strategy
While I agree you’re doing a great job planning for the 2018 elections, I’d like to weigh in with a few thoughts about your strategy to embarrass the president and take control of the House and Senate.
Having your avid supporters and members of ANTIFA break up a peaceful prayer march and beat up members of the parade just because they carried American Flags shows all the American people just how brave your supporters really are. It’s a nice touch having your thugs wear masks so they can’t be identified. Continue to ignore those who say the masks show that even the ANTIFA doesn't recognize how despicable their actions are. Without the masks, they would certainly be arrested for the clearly outmoded idea that physical assault for righteous political reasons be considered a crime punishable by law.
Promoting marches around the country demanding that the federal government ‘abolish ICE’ is certainly a winning message. After all, it’s regressive to suggest we control our borders or enforce antiquated immigration laws. Ignore those who complain that only ICE stands between Americans and those illegals guilty of rape, murder, and child molestation; or gangs like MS-13 who behead and murder America’s citizens. Liberals need the support of illegal immigrants who will eventually vote so whatever casualties against American citizens occur are ultimately for the greater good of our socialist agenda.
Electing avowed socialists to the United States Congress is pure brilliance — the further they are to the left, the better. Far left communists and socialists make the rest of you look moderate no matter how radical you are. When the right points out that socialist leadership in other places like Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Cuba has resulted in famine, violence, and government atrocities; just shout them down. Moving America so far to the left means you can finally use government to imprison or “re-educate” those who oppose you. Pure genius.
Your favorite congresswoman advocating for the public harassment of everyone in the Trump Administration is a wonderful idea. Making Congresswoman Maxine Waters the new face of the Democratic Party is brilliant. Make a note of those who claim that public shout downs, aggressive bullying, and physical assault deny the victims their individual freedoms. It’s a great opportunity to identify now the conservatives you will want to come after once you take full control of the IRS and federal law enforcement agencies.
Using the media to tilt the facts (regardless of the evidence) to mislead the American people about important issues and polices is a master stroke. Beware of those who get their information from sources deeper than USA Today or the New York Times. They’ll see through your agenda and doubt all your future messages. Best to continue the massive expansion of your false propaganda campaign to include academia, Hollywood, and all cultural elites in society. And when Americans who know better do complain, ramp up the size of the lies and the number of media sources who spread them so doubters are made to look foolish and behind the times.
Continue claiming that you support free speech and individual rights even while your storm troopers deny those rights to your opponents. One great example is when one of your more accomplished bullies approached a group of teens at a burger joint, stole one of their MAGA hats, then threw a soft drink in the face of the kids. If you continue that kind of “tolerance,” then you’ll eventually redefine for Americans what the words “free,” “speech,” and even “tolerance,” mean.
The new platform of the party (RESIST/IMPEACH) is such a powerful message for the American people. Don’t worry about those who complain that your approach doesn’t tell us what positions you support, what policies you would implement, or where your priorities lie. You know that if you actually share those details, Americans will see that your plans threaten their quality of life and endanger their kids’ futures. That would be a disaster for your election chances. WOW!
There are so many other things you’re doing do make sure that America’s voters will enthusiastically cheer you come election day this November.
Please, keep it up!
