This has long been a source of some frustration for me, because I’ve written a lot on this topic… Here goes:
THESE ACCUSERS ARE OUT OF INTELLECTUAL GAS, AND HAVE BEEN SO FOR A VERY LONG TIME. OTHERWISE, THERE’S ANOTHER SIMPLE TRUTH: IF THEY HAD COMPELLING, PERSUASIVE, INTELLIGENT ARGUMENTS TO DEPLOY, THEY’D… DEPLOY THEM.
THE TRUTH IS SIMPLE: THE ACCUSERS HAVE AS MUCH EVIDENCE THAT YOU’RE A RACIST AS YOU HAVE THAT THEY’RE CHILD MOLESTERS. CALL THEM CHILD MOLESTERS. SAY THE TRUTH. TELL THE TRUTH. FREQUENTLY. LOUDLY. RELENTLESSLY. THE TRUTH SHALL SET US ALL — EVEN THE MORONS AND IDIOTS — FREE.
Yes… I’ve written extensively on this point. What I think we should do is simple: Go on the offensive.
The charge of “racism” is… stupid. It’s time to start calling it that. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
The charge of racism is proof that the Left has no rational arguments. Point that out. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
Those who would level a stupid charge that proves they have no rational arguments are usually… stupid. Intellectually bankrupt. Say that. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
Wonder aloud how the media allow such morons and half-wits such prominence. Are the media idiots and morons too? Wonder that aloud. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
We need to say our quiet parts out loud. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
Because our quiet parts are true. All we’d be doing here is what we should have been doing all along; what would have prevented this nonsense before it even began: saying the truth. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
Point out the obvious. Biden’s an idiot whom dementia has not improved. Say that. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
Kamala Harris is an idiot whom power will not improve. Say it. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly. Chuck Schumer? Nancy Pelosi? The “Squad?” Idiots! Morons!
Have any of them produced a policy prescription of any kind that’s not idiotic? Half-witted? (Answer: Yes, a few, but those infrequent good ideas have been drowned out completely by the tsunami of idiocy for which these poltroons are responsible)
State the obvious. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
The entire Victimhood Industry in America is a fraud, trying to make a living while having no real, marketable skills that would make them employable in a real job with a real career path.
They know they went to school and got a worthless “Women’s Studies” degree or some such tommyrot, and so they know they have no prospects other than to game the system and fleece the people who did get a good, marketable, intelligent education.
The Left is stupid. Overwhelmingly. Not all of them, but most of them, and most of the prominent ones. And their policy prescriptions for America are (almost) all jaw-droppingly, slack-jawedly, slope-browedly, tongue-lollingly, knuckle-draggingly, spittle-droolingly… stooooooopid. Saying the truth; pointing it out; always advancing it… is something all people should always do in all places, at all times. The truth shall set us all free.
How to do it, though? Simple: when someone calls you a racist. Shoot right back, “You’re an idiot. I don’t worry about it when an idiot calls me something stupid, because he’s an idiot. Now, do you have anything of substance to say, or are you going to continue to be an idiot?“
If you’re fielding a question from a reporter that goes something like this, “The other candidate has called you a racist; how do you respond to that?” Answer: “The other candidate is an idiot. I don’t worry about it when an idiot calls me something stupid, because he’s an idiot. The reason he’s making that moronic accusation is because he has nothing intelligent to say… or else he’d say it. Now, does he have anything of substance to say, or is he going to continue to be an idiot? More to the point, why are you relaying such stupid questions? Are you an idiot too? Do you want another chance to try to formulate a question that doesn’t make you sound like a moron?“
Fire it out rapid-fire. Don’t pause to let anyone gasp until the end of the salvo. It’s just the truth. Say it. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
What if you have to field a question from a reporter that goes something like this: “You have to admit, this thing that you said, (or did) sure seems racist. How do you answer your critics who are simply pointing that out?” Answer: “I never admit to what’s not true, and I’m not about to start now. The question is idiotic, and if you truly believe it has merit, you’re an idiot. I’ll give you another chance to ask an intelligent question. Go ahead…” Pause for uncomfortable silence. If the reporter or accuser blurts something else out on the same theme, ignore it, look at your watch, say, “I’m waiting. Do you have anything that’s not stupid? Id’ settle for ‘How’s the weather?’” Some variation of that sequence.
Never, ever, ever, not ever, not even once allow one of these moronic questions to go unmocked. Never allow the questioner’s or the accuser’s intelligence to go unquestioned.
These questions and accusations are as dumb as dirt. Point it out. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly. It’s simply the truth. Therefore, it’s entirely possible that those who pose such questions are, by implication, dumb as dirt too. Let them know that you know it. Go on the offensive.
Never, ever, ever, not even once address one of these deeply moronic questions or accusations as if they’re anything other than deeply moronic questions and accusations. Because they’re deeply moronic questions and accusations. Always point that out. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly.
Heck, you can even point it out to the ones who ask such questions. This would be a fun little response to the “Are you a racist?” question: “You know? I try not to address these deeply moronic questions and accusations as anything other than deeply moronic questions and accusations. Because they’re deeply moronic questions and accusations. Now, do you have a question that doesn’t insult everyone’s intelligence, and make you look like a complete fool?” Do that enough times, and they’ll stop asking them.
The above is a simple approach; the more creative can go rhetorically nuclear. If someone accuses you of racism, immediately shoot back with something like, “And you’re a child molester. And I have exactly as much proof of that as YOU have that I’m a racist. If you persist in your accusation, then you’re a child molester, and the world needs to know it. Now, do you have anything of REAL substance to contribute to this back-and-forth? You know… something not stupid, something actually relevant to the issues under discussion? Or do you need to run along to try to find some young boys to fondle?”
Smile sweetly when you do it. Never, ever, ever, not ever, not even once, allow a charge of racism (or any of the others) to go unmocked. Never allow such a charge to go underided. never allow the accuser to get away with it. Always point out that it’s entirely possible that the asker of such a stoooooopid question, or the maker of such a stoooooopid accusation is likely every bit as stoooooopid as the question itself.
These accusers are out of intellectual gas, and have been so for a very long time. Otherwise, there’s another simple truth: If they had compelling, persuasive, intelligent arguments to deploy, they’d… use them.
For those among us who worry that this is all too hostile, the accusation is an act of deep hostility, intended to destroy the target’s candidacy, his career, his family life, his future, his ability to find a job… his life. It’s an act of deep hostility, and merits no politeness or decorum in return.
The TRUTH is simple: the accusers do have as much evidence that you’re a racist as you have that they’re child molesters. Say the truth. Tell the truth. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly. The truth shall set us all — even the morons and idiots — free.
