Draining The Swamp – Part XXIII – Attacking The Messenger
Cong. John Conyers recently lashed out at Mike Cernovich “For Exposing His Decades of Sexual Harassment“.
From The Gateway Pundit:
Conyers is still denying the allegations! He is angry and lashed out at Mike Cernovich for handing over the damning documents to Buzzfeed to be published.
Conyers claims Cernovich has reportedly paid for the documents which blew the roof off of the sexual harassment scandal last week.
“I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics.”
Conyers, in his attack on Cernovich, called him an “alt-right blogger”, which is an attempt to denigrate Cernovich and to lump him in with the “Alt-Right” white nationalists and white supremacists. Cernovich is neither. He is an investigative journalist, but Conyers uses misleading labels, as he goes on the attack.
Saul Alinsky, in his “Rules For Radicals“, shows his methods for destroying an enemy at all costs. Bill and Hillary Clinton used Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals throughout their careers, and continue to do so.
One of those rules: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”, has been a favorite of the Globalist Leftists for years. Conyers uses it in his attack on Mike Cernovich, calling him an alt-right blogger, not an investigative journalist, implying that Cernovich isn’t a “real journalist”.
Another of Alinsky’s rules; “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules”, is very telling, as those who follow Alinsky’s Rules have only the belief in his rules, while holding the morality that says “the ends justify the means”, they can do anything, while demanding the enemy live by its own rules. Lying is one of their tactics, and they use it without conscience. After all, “the ends justify the means”.
Bill Clinton lied about the Monica Lewinsky affair, and Hillary attacked her viciously, along with Bill’s other accusers. Both the Clintons are accomplished liars. Time after time, they have been caught in lies, whereupon they go on the attack, ridiculing their accusers with lie after lie. Facts mean nothing to them; only their insatiable lust for power.
When a Swamp Creature attacks an accuser, rather than refuting the allegations, there is a high probability that they cannot refute the allegations, and are using their only defense, which is to ridicule and destroy the accuser.
Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals:
“Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”
“Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
“Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
“A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
“A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
“Keep the pressure on,”
“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
“If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside”
“The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
