Now that we know that Linseed Lindsey and his minions are planning

a saturation of Biden with a bunch of made up information from Rudy and Ukraine, are we working to counteract it? We need a nice October surprise for them too. We are up against some of the most vicious crooks since Al Capone.

1. Neutralize. Disarm. Discredit.

Smarter people than me can figure out the tactics on that one.

OR

Biden does nothing. Ignore or all of it. Including subpeona. Know most Americans see this as a sham. Only an arrest would rise to action.

16. Can do it w 4 heuristics: fast, true, clear, & targetted to the audience receiving the disinfo


It's how to do counter-propaganda.

The Lincoln Project is very responsive, accurate, easy to grasp and has gotten lots of views.

2. Why the slur to Capone? He bootlegged and had turf wars

With the Irish who also bootlegged.

Not even comparable.

Was Al Capone a nice guy? I think not. He gets used as an example for a reason.

21. We know you like to use Italian slurs

So whatever. Was a “goombah” Mineral Man. Isn’t that how you refer to Italian Americans? Goombahs? Right? Those are your words.

And he was no worse than the Irish doing the same thing, but you don’t slur them cause they are white

22. Italians aren't "white?"

Caucasians, Italians are, with very, very few exceptions. They're as "white" as Irish people are.

Was Al Capone a criminal? That was the reference, not a reference to Italians in general.

24. OK. You've linked to my reference to

Anthony Scaramucci before. However, this thread is not a slur on Italians in general. Merely mentioning Al Capone as an example of a well-known criminal has nothing to do with Italians as a group. You apparently thought it did, though. Why is that?

Al Capone was a criminal of note. He is used as an example of criminality very often, without any reference to his Italian heritage. That's what happened in the opening post of this thread. No reference to Italians was made at all - just a reference to one of the most famous criminals of all time.

So, by all means post your link. I don't mind. The poster who started this thread, however, did not slur Italians in any way. He used Al Capone as an example of a notorious criminal, which he was.

25. It is the same thing

Because Italians are always portrayed as criminals in the media. Al Capone did nothing that 100 Irishmen didn’t do - so why is he singled out?

Furthermore, if Italians were considered white, why did Congress pass laws forbidding their immigrant. Why were they put in interment camps in WWII. Even Joe DiMaggio’s parents. Italians were not considered white in this country.

I think very low of you. You think you have the right to use Italian slurs. You don’t. I also find your posts smarmy and really - you try too hard.

3. I think it's a waste of resources to counteract a specific ad.....

with the American public. First out of the gate is the thing most remembered.

I would prefer to see preemptive ads that paint Trump as the habitual liar he is.

Example:

"Donald Trump lied to you about healthcare. Here's proof:" (follow with a few simple facts......), then....

"He's also lying to you about Joe Biden." (follow with a few simple facts......)

Most Americans hate liars and that's a key way to get people's attention and learn to totally distrust Trump.

We need to be relentlessly using that same tactic against the entire GOP.

13. "That's what Limbaugh says every day but....." should preface any response to

what these scumbags say or do in attacking democratic candidates and positions.

after that it doesn't matter. as much as they know limbaugh's the intellectual and moral leader of the new republican party and has weighed in on everything important over and over, and that a bunch of llimbaugh wannabes are the main reason for this disaster, most of them don't want to face it.

democrats need offense. otherwise it doesn't matter what we say. the cons always win the messaging because democrats ignore talk radio.

everything else dems might say that corrects is defense. if democrats get lucky or it actually looks like it's working their think tanks will design a campaign to counter it and shoot it out limbaugh's ass and all over 1500 radio stations.

that chorus of 1500 nationally and locally coordinated unchallenged radio stations is the only reason any of the biden ukraine bulllshit got any cred, why this orange shit got near and is still in the white house, and the only reason most current republican politicians and media hack have jobs now.

otherwise the only advantage republicans have is going to be worth 10-15 pts in this election too, unless dems get lucky and llimbaugh croaks soon.

4. Personally I think it would be smart to get out ahead of its release.

Call it what it is, concocted Russian propaganda, lies, disinformation. Laugh at it, talk about these are the same people who said Hillary had a hole in her tongue. I think it's wrong to ignore it or wait for it.

This is all old news now, Trump’s credibility is in tatters, it will back fire on him and we will bludgeon him with Russian bounties on American troops

9. Be out in front with ad after ad examples after examples of the crooked $$$$ things Ivanka has done

Last edited Sat Aug 1, 2020, 09:21 AM - Edit history (2)

From stealing money from the inauguration celebration.

To crooked dealings in China for her business patents.

To the billions, her and hubby got to bail him out on his 666 property. What government secrets did he give in exchange?

To the management of the hotel and overbilling government officials.

To the millions spent on golfing trips that they charged the secret service for golf carts to protect daddy.

It goes on and on.

What possibly could the Bidens have done to compare with the professional grifters.

THE TRUMPS HAVE ENRICHED THEMSELVES ON TAXPAYER MONEY

Here is TODAY's example from another DU poster $36 million. https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142551127

Yet another one today $3 Million. https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142551173

18. Yes I surely hope the Lincoln Project guys are doing this

If not, then Biden has to do it.

It really needs to be done, but it's unseemly for Biden's name to be on it. The LP guys could do a great job on this, and there's so much material out there!

7. Leningrad Lindsay is going to start worrying about relations with foreign governments?

He's been playing golf every day with a Russian agent and licking his ass because, like Lindsay's owner, Lindsay is a racist pig lacking integrity.

I'm not worried about this at all.

We're way into "fool me once" territory.

8. They're late. Americans see this as played out and debunked. So any new stuff will be filtered

out. The only people who will go for this last gasp are the hardcore right wing talk radio cult.

They're gonna find out that most, if not all other Americans, are so past the cult's late, lame claims that their leader will be laughed off any debate stage if he brings it up.

31. How many will have died of Covid by then?

That's the "October Surprise" they will be bringing out.

I'm betting very little else is going to matter to the electorate by then.

It would help Biden and damage Graham's re-election campaign.
