Is Jim DeMint a scratched record or just dumb?

On MTP he kept repeating the same thing over and over. I have heard Shame and Rush repeat over and over or is this a way they have to communicate with the FOX listeners. He seems to want to cut spending on education and health care but he wants to have forced births. Doesn't he realize after the babies are born they have to be cared for and educated.

3. That's a standard right-wing tactic:

repeating some over and over ad nauseum until people accept it as truth. Unfortunately, it still fucking works.

6. To your point

I watched a documentary on Stonehenge,the other night.....In the narrative it was said that the behavior of just 5% of a crowd can and will affect the 95%,who will follow unwittingly....Which struck me as being pertinent to the "sheeple" phenomenon that many,including myself,accept as explanation to why people would buy into and support agendas harmful to themselves....


*ETA*
The narrative that made that point,did so calling it scientifically proven,but didn't cite any studies...
