barry and the “Big Lie”

November 7, 2009

Not sure how I ran across this but it’s shocking to read. Put it together however you like.

Three questions. Try to guess without looking at the answers, which are at the bottom.

[Emphasis added]

1-Can you name the writer of this excerpt?

Hint: not Jon Favreau. How many speechwriters of color does barry employ?

All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true in itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.

Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.

[Sound familiar?]

For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

2-And this?

Recall, in 2004, barry refused to talk to the Hawaii Star Bulletin about his high school days.

One should not as a rule reveal one’s secrets, since one does not know if and when one may need them again. The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

3-And whose campaign strategy is this?

Primary rules: never allow the public to cool off [keep campaigning]; never admit a fault or wrong [helps to have a corrupted media]; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy [attack them as racists, allow ageist and sexist attacks to go unchecked]; never [always] leave room for alternatives; never accept blame [keep plenty of under the bussers nearby]; concentrate on one enemy at a time [FOX] and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one [take your pick]; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
