    A real tweet, in a thread about Trump’s constant rallies, and my response.

     

    Actually, I DON’T like painting an entire group of people as dumb. I don’t like it when we do it to Christians. But with Trump supporters, I’m sorry but it fits.

    Again and again, I see evidence of the most basic unawareness coupled with honest-to-goodness conviction that Mr Trump is the smartest, most qualified, most selfless President we’ve ever had. Like this person … I guarantee, she ACTUALLY thinks Trump is the first President to speak at a stadium.

    I just can’t.

    I can’t stand the dotard and his cronies or his minions. The minions are just totally stupid, his cronies are insane, and the dotard is both, as well as a foul mouthed homophobic, xenophobic, racist, sexist, misogynistic, egotistical, hypocritical, bigot. Did I leave anything out?

    Yeah, but they didn’t get that way by themselves.  Democrats need to focus on the folks doing all this brainwashing.  Expose the tactics and figure out how to defend honesty – perhaps even the American sense of FairPlay, and all that.  I mean if you’ve decided that nothing the other says will change your mind, hasn’t that crossed over into genuine crazy land?  Why not enunciate it?

    (oh yeah and please excuse the typos in my stuff, between constant interruptions and keyboard issues, coupled to finger and eye challenges,  What can i say?  It’s not my fault.  Well, okay, so it is my fault, thus, please forgive me  😉  )

    You might want to check out the latest Frontline on AI or maybe the documentary The Great Hack. We know how the brainwashing happens. We shut down Cambridge Analytics, but we haven’t stopped the science behind. It’s like Dark Money, if you don’t use it, you don’t win elections.

    For one thing, you left out that he is the biggest LIAR in the history of the USA. For another thing, you are presenting the dotard in much too positive terms to fit the reality of his corruption, inadequacy, and incompetency.

    Cambridge Analytica had a primitive algorithm compared to the ones that now can target and persuade individuals who may never know they were targeted, and manipulated to pass on political propaganda, or even to take some sorts of political action, or to simply stay out of the political process altogether.

    Agreed Tim. And much better stuff will be employed over the next couple years. Better hidden too.

    Cue background music with selections from the Soundtrack of JAWS the movie…

    the music will escort your fear.
