      With Polls and Private Meetings, Republicans Are Crafting Blunt, Misleading Messaging to Paint Democrats as Extremists

      For a long time now, Trump has been characterizing Democrats in blunt and misleading, often completely false ways. The political Right Wing enjoys that so much that they are having private meetings and conducting polls to increase/accelerate the way they send out messages about the democratic Candidates for President of the Unite States.

      To craft these messages, from misleading statements to flat out lies, Republican strategists are having secret meetings to formulate one liners to make our Candidates seem very extreme. According to Jeremy W. Peters in The New York Times, such messages include lies stating that Democrats will be killing babies after they are born, (Right Wing way to deal with legal abortion) more lies about putting farmers out of business, (their way to deal with climate change and trade) and making sure that there are long waits before Americans will be able to see their doctors (their way to bash Universal Health Care.)

      Polls indicate that many people have already heard some of these messages, and will repeat them, so such sound bites have a huge impact. It is how Trump hopes to win. Whichever candidate gets the nod to run against Trump will have to be ready to deal with such information. Since he plans to run on immigration, and use the Democrats’ beliefs about health care, abortion and climate change as ways to make Democrats look ridiculous and much too far to the left.

      Republicans are mainly focusing on “socialist” proposals as various Democrats have espoused them, and as such are trying to assert that Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez is the face of the Democratic party, even though she is six yeas away from being able to run for President of the USA. They are concentrating on her and her messages to turn into one liners that paint Democrats as out of touch extremists.

      The following are excerpts from Jeremy W. Peters' article in today’s NY Times:

      “What our side has to understand is that to fight Trump it’s a battle for definition,” said Celinda Lake, a top Democratic pollster who has been working with left-of-center groups on a strategy to counter the messaging campaign from the right.

      “The debate that’s going to play out in suburbs across the country is a choice between capitalism versus socialism,” said Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.

      Even if Americans say they like policies that are derivative of socialism, like Social Security, the term “connotes very clear imagery to people in a very dog whistle kind of way

      “Whichever Democrat wins the nomination will have to own their party’s socialist agenda,” she added. “That’s a debate that President Trump is eager to have and knows he can win.”

      It is not clear whether any of the Republican messaging is having an impact on voters outside of the president’s so far unmovable base. But Ms. Lake said that as she surveyed likely 2020 swing voters, she was surprised to hear people in focus groups repeat false assertions made by the president and his allies — that Democrats would end air travel in the United States and shut down dairy farms and beef production because of greenhouse gas emissions from cows.

      Republicans said they also saw “Medicare for all”-type proposals as a way to give their rallying cries on socialism more substance and potency. Some plans, . . . would largely eliminate private insurance plans, which Republicans have found is overwhelmingly unpopular with the kinds of voters they need to win back.

      Trump’s own approach at labeling Democrats has been inconsistent. But he has occasionally made graphic and false claims that Democrats support legislation that would allow “executing babies AFTER birth,” as he said in a recent tweet.

      While polls show that Americans support allowing abortion in the first three months by wide margins, that support drops sharply when people are asked in general about the second and third trimesters.

      Democrats say they cannot let Mr. Trump and other Republicans go unanswered as they try to link the party to socialism — a term that Americans view negatively over all — and to extremism in a broader sense.

      I recommend all Democrats would benefit from reading this entire article.

          Its very alarming. Especially since the President himself talks more and more like Breitbart with its absurd lies and accusations of treason.

              Republicans have no need to paint Democrats as extremists. Democrats are doing a spectacular job of accomplishing that, on their own.


              Party of Islam, Party of Anti-Semitism, Party of late term abortion, Party of Socialism, Party of open borders, Party of abolition of free speech...and so on.


              I’m with stupid should be the slogan of the Dumbocratic Party.

                  The Democratic party is not abolishing free speech. There is no requirement that Universities host right wing extremists to speak on their campuses. They are not obligated to host anyone at all for that matter.

                  Its wrong to call it the party of islam because they are including Moslems and arabs in the party.

                  I'm concerned about antisemitism and I feel its antisemitic to call AIPAC and American Jews agents of a foreign power though. Nancy Pelosi could have done a better job reigning in the two Arabs that were recently elected.

                          This is why I think the most important message for Democrats to run on in 2020 is NOT health care, or immigration or climate change or any social issue, but rather protecting our democracy and the rule of law. Expose republicans for what they are. TRAITORS.

                          Point out how congressional republicans and their supporters are putting Trump, bigotry and hatred above democracy and the rule of law. And for Heavens sake, grow a spine! Stand up for what we believe in, IF we actually believe in it. If we only do or not do things for political reasons, who cares who runs the government. I certainly don't!

                          S/S.

                              The real problem is that the majority of the people don't put "protecting our democracy and the rule of law" higher than security (a wall / immigration / military might).

                                  Totally agree. S/S. We need to expose Trump et al for what they are. We can talk about social issues, but our main focus should be showing voters that these RW politicians are fascists.
