A sincere plea---

---do NOT let Trump's veiled threats or the mock belligerence of his putrid base intimidate you!

Do not let these thugs silence the righteous voices of reason and decency, one of which should be yours!

Speak out! Don't miss any opportunity to counter the vile flood of nonsense we know is about to be released!

Everyone influences someone. Let them know how YOU feel!

1. 100% this

I suspect there will be far less of a protest than Tfg thinks. The internet bot army will light up, but real people? Some, yes. Lots? Unlikely

8. They're going to turn a cold shoulder on Chump when it finally happens

That's my guess. They've decided he doesn't sell the ad-time any more.

10. So we have to fan out across the "messaging landscape".

and spread the truth.

And mind you, it’s not “our truth”, it’s THE truth.

I’ve noticed that talking point rearing its ugly head lately. “My truth.” “Our truth.” “Their truth.” This is a VERY subtle and sneaky talking point design and manipulation.

When the word “truth” is added, that can in some ways “indemnify” the main concept being pushed or promoted here. At least to the low-information crowd that tends to hand its critical-thinking capability over to media manipulators like Pox Noise because those media outfits will parrot “their truth” back to them.

And THAT, in turn, serves to “validate” whatever pro-trump attempted historical/factual rewriting of reality (specifically the reality they don’t like and don’t want to have to face). They don’t like how things are going? Then change the language and how you label it and describe it. And if you do that repeatedly and relentlessly enough (WITH the willing-and-eager support of actual media outlets of perceived prominence like Pox Noise), then to many viewers and listeners that BECOMES the truth. THEIR “truth”.

Besides, that’s a fertile field of an audience that’s already won over and feeling formally and officially validated because that’s already what they believe anyway. They’re told, by marquee-level people that their upside-down world is really the one that’s right side-up and therefore, their cockamamie “world view” gains validation and credibility. Maybe that should be “credibility”. In quotes.

11. Yes - well said, my friend

I agree with you and Atticus, we can't silenced by the noisy liars. We can't back down and we do have the truth on our side. The time is coming when we'll need to stand up for the real America and the real Americans.

12. And a place like THIS is where we consider, research, and vet ideas

and talking points with facts and teeth in them. Facts - that are harder to refute,
Facts - that thus become easier to remember, maybe make a note of, write down, and share,
Facts - that will get under the skin and cause an itch.

We can develop, forge, test, and refine effective verbal weapons and weapon-skills in a place like this. It’s like a progressive blacksmith’s workshop.

5. How soon

Can we expect Lindsay Graham to come out clutching pearls ranting about Joes weak response to these threats against our citizens, like he did for the ballon’s and the drone attack. Will he go on the Senate Floor and wail, “That’s it, I’ve had enough” like he did on J7, then go to Mardi Lardo to be reminded of the videos trump/Putin has on him, and fall to his knees praising trump’s strength and leadership to take back the country.

7. I turned on FUX News about a half hour ago...

...nary a word about TFG and his "situation". It'll be interesting how they handle this.

9. The reporting will be inverse of Iraq protests

Magnified by corporate media as much as they diminished the hundreds of thousands of protesters against the war. Just my humble opinion.

Peace
