Evil genius Saul Alinsky has been the brains behind most of the Democrat strategy since the 60s. His methods have been – unfortunately – highly successful.
Now President Trump, in addition to following the guidelines of The Art of War, employs Alinsky’s tactics.
Nowhere is there a better example of his strategy than “the Squad.”
Trump has followed this rule for radicals: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. He early recognized that the Dems have to be painted in a way repugnant to most Americans. No group characterizes them better than the squad of AOC, Omar, Pressley and Tlaib. Target achieved.
He has frozen them for us as a group of out of touch, radicals who hate our country. They now cannot be separated from that image.
They have helped personalize it along the way. They take every occasion to knock him, and therefore the Americans who voted for him, in an ugly way. The loathsome foursome has spewed nothing but hate, a hate directed at patriots. It doesn’t get much more personal than to accuse us of being racists, -ists, etc. We take it personally. So we personally feel a dislike for them.
Fortunately for Trump they have polarized themselves. Take a look at this good example from the RNC:
Trump has turned the tables on the libs. And what’s even better is that they are turning on each other.
I laugh when I recall Nancy Pelosi’s daughter’s warning. She tweeted to Trump “She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding.”
Given the antics on the House floor yesterday, where Pelosi stomped off when the parliamentarian told her she was breaking the rules in attacking the president, she might want to retract that.
I might add that isn’t that the exact stereotype of the emotional woman acting unprofessionally and storming off that feminists deride? Take a look:
Hoist by their own petard?
