The Socialist Mind Game:
A Brief Manual

Original Article

We are being played; it´s time we learned the game. Conservatives have their Constitution. Progressives have their Narrative. The current battle for America is between these two concepts, and each side uses different rules to fight it. One set of rules is consistent with an unchanging objective: limited government and individual freedoms. The other side´s rules are as fickle as their goals, which are never fully disclosed beyond the equivocal references to fairness and hyphenated forms of justice.

Always refreshing to hear from former Soviet citizens. They understand how Democrats work, and what their real intentions are, better than most Republicans seem to.

Had this article been written yesterday, it would have been one of the best articles of 2012. Everyone should read this and I will make sure my children and grandchildren see it.
After the "cliff" debacle and Obama´s taunting yesterday - this is happening faster than we thought. We need to pull together to stop this.

"Game Over" if the House freezes spending and brings articles of impeachment when the inevitable "end around" is attempted.

Do we have a patriot in the House? One lesson that we learned from the Muslims is that a man who is willing to die for what he believes in is virtually impossible to stop.

FTA -- "The perception of a relentless struggle with the opposition must be permanent and persuasive."

Know this. The Struggle against manufactured oppressors is all they have and all they need. Also know from this rises their "righteous" hatred that clouds all logic and truth. In their minds we´re up against the wall, they may be right.

This is so insidious and, to my sorrow, true.

Once the illusion reaches a critical mass, those afflicted by it become immune to facts, numbers, or rational arguments. Confronting them with logic will only cause more resentment, name-calling and, sometimes, violence. [emphasis mine]

We know this is true by our attempts at rational conversations within our own families and groups of friends. I´m sure most of us have tried logic and reason only to be firmly told that it is WE who are being lied to, WE who are being irrational and stupid, and WE who need to get with the program.

Forget reason. Forget logic. Socrates and Aristotle are turning over in their graves. The enemy knows that logic doesn´t work because they know their constituencies have been too dumbed down to recognize or even care about logic -- all they want is to feel good about the successful being screwed. What they also want is to be part of a gang, like most arrested-development cases.

Meaning in life, for the people Mr. Atbashian describes, consists of feeling secure while being raped. And they do feel secure as they watch the rapist, Mr. Obama, tear off their clothing. In other words (as though other words are needed) they´re getting told it´s raining while this Administration pees on their legs.

Excellent article. We understand the methods and the implications for our future but the American sheep are fully cooperating with obama and the flying monkeys. It will be a tough battle but we have several advantages that countries like Russia, Cambodia and China did not. We owe it to our ancestors not to let this happen.

The enemy´s goal is to put their mind into your mind.

Think about the changes in language ...

Employee is now worker
Assault weapon term coined by anti-gun activist
Give Back (what? did you take too much?)
Social Justice (wth?)
Progress (actually means failure)

... and so many more. Watch what you say so you don´t mirror their cant ...

# 3 , # 4 is on to them . The ´ crisis ´ , the latest shooting , is nothing more than an excuse to get their foot in the door . Their objective is to disarm America . Our Founders understood tyranny and made allowances on how to stop it , if worse came to worst . The socialist´s can call me any name they wish , but facts don´t lie .

If Romney or any Republican leader would have articulated this more than once before November 1 -- to educate the "low information voter, as it were -- we could have preserved capitalism and freedom. Political junkies know who Obama is and what the press is. Not one Republican seems to grasp that his oath and his conscience requires him to speak out about this, about the succession of these ideas amounts to nothing less than a smooth coup, that the end of America as a force for good means the end of stability in the Middle East, means indefinite years of waste. Polite journalists on our side, who avoid this obvious truth [a marxist coup through marxist czars and blackmailed politicians and an access driven gay press], who prefer to speak to things like Obama´s "arrogance" instead of his inelegibility, high crimes, his coup, with the complicity of all corrupt parties, tickling the ears of most here, are helping to send America back to the cattle cars. Speak.

No. 9. You have succinctly stated one of the more salient points during this time: namely, that words are the linchpins of the socialists arsenal. People now do not have the thought process to deconstruct the fallacies, nor the inclination to give up the promised freebies.

The reason it´s working is simple -- the place people go to read/hear about what´s really happening is actually shilling for the socialist cause. If people got their news and analysis without the partisan spin and omissions, conservative principles would prevail.

It would be stimulating (poor choice perhaps) to see their war plans to destroy the Constitution( we don´t need no stinkin´ law), thin the population(abortion and crime),
infuse Jacobism, corrupt our youth, invalidate our Faiths, and all their other nefarious traitorous plans.

Marx, Lenin, Alinsky, Ayres, and Cher are such boring reading. Perhaps we could better be titilated by those great intellects robert redford and bwawbwaer strident.

This is when people need to be able to think for themselves.

Too many people are being dishonest and spewing lies. Many other people are appealing to your emotions rather than logic or reason. Don´t waste your time listening to them. Also many of them cannot be reasoned with.

The question is how to come up with an effective strategy to combat Socialism. Right now the Socialists are winning.

I really think the GOP has surrendered. They have decided it´s unstoppable & are just playing the role of the enemy...

Except the TPers & real Americans like Rubio. He voted no to the phony cliff deal.
And Boehner removing TPers from committees was a favor to Obama.

The OBie WH violates the constitution over & over & over. The Supremes are only concerned with their own existence & won´t help.

I am becoming a firm believer that the 23 states vying for secessation should join forces & form a new Free America... before the laws allowing us to do so are erased.

The author noted that to participate in the socialist state is not enough, one must also like it and tell the oppresors what wonderful humans they truly are through the use of buttery compliments. This mirrors a major point in "Atlas Shrugged", where Rand stressed the importance to the collectivists to have the personal permission and an individual´s approval of their agenda. Her dramatic protrayal of this need climaxed with the torture of John Galt. I believe this is their weakness and the key to our resistance.

For laws and regulations to work they need the consent of the governed, and the socialists are depending on people doing what they direct them to do. Just because they pass a regulation does not necessarily mean a person has to comply. No big protest, fighting the system, writing letters or any of the old way of dissenting against government action. Just don´t comply.

If they won´t honor my Constitution, I don´t have to obey their liberty stealing directives.

Awesome, awesome, article. I think one point needs to made about the generational timing of this. I think they´ve waited for the population numbers to skew so the majority is now in sync with their agenda. I think they expect those of us who actually know the history of our country, know the Constitution and Bill of Rights will be to weak or aged to to battle against them. I say BRING IT !!!

The perception of a relentless struggle with the opposition must be permanent and persuasive.
As was also written by the great George Orwell in his classic book on totalitarianism, 1984.

Every time Michelle Obama uses the word "shtruggle," we hear her Marxist indoctrination coming through.

Liberals will deny that frequent use of the word "struggle" connotes anything socialist. Horrors! How dare we suggest it!

Liberals will also deny that the word "jihad" frequently means violent struggle. Both denials are a denial of reality.

Global average temperature has been flat for a decade. But frightening myths about global warming continue. We’re told there are more hurricanes now. We’re told that hurricanes are stronger. But the National Hurricane Center says it isn’t so. Meteorologist Maria Molina told me it’s not surprising that climatologists assumed hurricanes would get worse. “Hurricanes need warm ocean waters,” but it turns out that “hurricanes are a lot more complicated than just warm ocean waters.” Computer models have long predicted nasty effects from our production of greenhouse gasses. But the nasty effects have not appeared. As far as hurricanes, more hit the United States

Blue-collar workers, especially those connected with labor unions who mine coal, drill for oil and gas, build pipelines, and toil in all those related areas of genuine economic activity, must be appalled. Barack Obama won re-election largely on the willingness of those types of unions to put aside their doubts about his real commitment to economic growth and to turn out by a two-to-one margin for him. That was decisive in states with large industrial unions: Ohio (18 electoral votes), Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes), Iowa (6 electoral votes), New Hampshire (4 electoral votes), and Wisconsin (10 electoral votes).

Like the proverbial monkey typing for infinity and getting Shakespeare, Mayor Bloomberg’s obsession with reforming New Yorkers’ health has finally produced a brilliant ad campaign. Posters are popping up in subway stations and bus stops giving statistics about teen pregnancy that show cute little kids saying things like, “Honestly, Mom … chances are he won’t stay with you. What happens to me?” and “I’m twice as likely not to graduate high school because you had me as a teen.”

A meticulous new analysis examines the benefits of government-administered socialism among a representative cross section of individuals. It is an insightful departure from the usual studies of socialism that analyze only collective benefits to society using statistics about such things as income quartiles and poverty levels. The new study is 27 pages and can be accessed as a PDF file via this link. As its author, I´ll summarize the results here. Julia, the president´s comic book heroine, is used as the baseline.

Pravda, Guns & America (AT, Jan. 11) quoted a Russian who advises: Americans: Never Give Up Your Guns, citing the bloody and tragic result of the Communists´ confiscation of arms after they came to power in 1917. The quotation has been echoing around the Internet, so here are more ringing defenses of the importance of the right to bear arms to the cause of liberty. Another Russian, the great writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn, wrote about the Soviet Union in The Gulag Archipelago (p.13, note 5): And how we burned in the camps later,

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
