Propaganda Far Right style

The Recent hate attacks against members of the Democratic Party are no surprise to any that have been watching and/or listening to the hate filled propaganda of the Far Right appointed spokesmen. They have, for years, been prepping the more radical listeners for violence. The tactics that they have been using are not new in any way, shape or manner. These are tried and tested techniques that have been used for years, by very controlling few, to control the masses. A prime example of these techniques can be found in numerous writings and/or movies of Germany in the 1930's and 1940's.

During this time period we had average everyday citizens that were influenced by said propaganda of the time to dump all forms of moral reasoning, and to adhere to the propagandist message of the times to despise and hate the Jews. This was accomplished via several ways: first and foremost, the Jews were blamed as scapegoats, for the hard economic times. The German people were influenced to look upon the Jews as less than human. Jews were considered to be despised and evil. Jewish beliefs, traditions and customs were considered to be not just different, but vile. This type of dehumanization of the Jews by German propaganda is being utilized by those on the Far Right to push a philosophy that any, and all that have opposing views or positions are not only wrong, but evil. They have been preaching that the Far Right way of thinking is the only God given acceptable way to think.

We have the Far Right using modern technical ways of communication to further their misinformation. A fast bombardment of repeated psychological messaging designed to keep the viewer and/or listener of said message in a constant state of agitation, which is the primary motivation behind all of their propaganda. The Far Right viewers must be kept at an agitation level of five or above. This is based on an agitation level of one through ten, with level three being considered the acceptable normal mode of agitation or stress. The propagandist must keep that agitation level of five or above at all cost. This is vital to remain in control of those listening or viewing the propaganda. At the level of five or above, the human body is so pumped full of adrenaline, that the human mind is incapable of sustaining a reasonable level of comprehension.

While keeping the agitation level up, the propagandist must repeat the message over and over in increments of no longer then 20 minutes. Doing this insures that for the majority of those following the message, they are giving, for the most part, their full attention to the message. Repetition helps to stoke the fires of that almighty desired goal of agitation level number five. This can be attained by slightly modifying the propaganda to rotate from one negative emotion to another. Thus, the message can be adapted by the propagandist on any given occasion, to fit the majority of said situations that might be needed to address.

This is done through manipulating the propaganda message so that it fits the occasion as needed. Thus, the first priority is to, by all means, keep those listening incapable of rational thought and then manipulating them to where, through fear, they are convinced that the propaganda being stated is in their minds the truth, and is being presented by an unquestionable credible source. Thus, any attempt by others to bring to light the true facts that dispute the propaganda, are deemed unreliable and considered a threat to those followers of the propagandists. These people feel that they themselves are under attack, not the said propaganda. Thus, they react strongly and violently to those that they deem as not others with a different opinion, but by the enemy.

When one listens to the propaganda being pushed forth, one hears a common thread of vilification of those that are representing the opposing opinion. The facts being stated are ignored by those affected by the propaganda and dismissed. They look upon any deviation of said propaganda as a personal attack against themselves and the ones they love. They are pushed into a flight or fight mode of aggression. Depending on the type of propaganda being confronted and the type of delivery of said propaganda, they react accordingly. If the one presenting the propaganda is advocating to support said propaganda by any means, then those that listen to said propaganda, will defend it via any means that they deem necessary. Thus members of the Democratic Party are never looked upon as equals by the Far Right but as the immoral and vial opponents of God's chosen ones.
