We Can Now Name the Enemy
What’s In a Name?
As many of you know, I founded a grassroots organization involving political activism for the purposes of reforming the Republican Party with officeholders who would put our country (and their voters) ahead of personal ambition or riches. It is called Primary the Ruling Class (PRC) and even though we have had remarkable success (and I am very proud of our membership), we are always looking for ways to increase our growth, reach, and effectiveness. One of our biggest challenges has been messaging. Ours is not a bumper sticker message.
In today’s world, if your message can’t fit on a bumper sticker, it will never go viral.
If we start talking negatively about some Republicans there are those who will assume we are against all Republicans. Conversely, if we start exposing the evils of the Democrats many will assume we support all Republicans. It requires dialogue to explain that some Republicans are RINOs (and why)… and when we single out RINOs for scorn we leave out all of the Democrat leftists who want to destroy our country. The message gets further convoluted when we have to stop and explain that the RINO battles need to take place during Primary season, but once the General Election rolls around of course we will support all Republicans. We need a simple way to say that we want to support strong, authentic, and patriotic conservatives while calling out the pretenders.
You’d need a really big bumper to fit that message on.
We also need to realize that the enemy we are fighting is not just politicians. As we have repeatedly demonstrated, our Administrative State (Deep State), mainstream media, social media, academicians, multinational corporations, and the judiciary are all heavily infested with those who seemingly hate America.
I have written numerous articles describing these factions and their differing motivations for teaming up against our beloved constitution, but if we ever want to win our war against them we are going to have to give them a collective name. We need to name them so that when we use that label everyone will instantly (and correctly) know who we are talking about. We learned in the years following Hillary Clinton’s ‘Arab Spring’ fiasco that we have to be able to put a simple name on our enemy – you can’t just pause in the middle of every conversation and explain, “No, it’s not all Muslims, it’s just different groups of Muslims from different countries that don’t seem to have much in common…’ You need to be able to say, ‘We are at war with ISIS.”
You cannot defeat an enemy unless you can name them.
Language Is Important
Andrew Breitbart is credited with first saying, “Politics is downstream from culture.” I like to add, “Culture is downstream from language.”
The Democrats (and Marxist worldwide) have historically been unrivaled in their mastery of coopting and subverting language to propagandize the public.
A great example would be what happened on January 6th, 2020. Yes, the crowd got out of hand at the East Entrance to the White House (and were probably agitated and set up by the FBI – but that is a subject for another day). But were they trying to overthrow the government? As Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene recently pointed out, “They weren’t even armed!” Yet, the media, in total lockstep uniformity, have for two years labeled the event an ‘insurrection.’ They have done this to propagandize, legitimize, and conflate two separate falsehoods… A significant number of Americans now believe 1) that a coup was attempted on that day, and therefore 2) MAGA Republicans are a threat to Democracy.
What Should We Call Our Enemy?
We need a label that instantly identifies not only who we are against, but who we are for. When we label a politician or political appointee with it, everyone must instantly understand who they are allied with and their malevolent motivations. We need candidates to be fearful of being labeled as such and politicians anxious to prove they are not.
When we founded PRC, we collectively called these people the Ruling Class, and that is accurate – they all tend to be Elitists with Superiority Complexes… but, for the reasons we listed above, we need a label that is more descriptive while remaining bumper sticker short. It is a conundrum, but I think I’ve solved it.
Most of my better ideas tend to come to me while I am in the shower (maybe that is why I am sometimes accused of being ‘all wet?’). At any rate, this particular epiphany was especially welcomed because I have been pondering the problem for years. Its profundity is its simplicity. When you hear it, hopefully, you won’t have to give it much thought… and if it truly is a good fit, people will naturally start using it in their own conversations.
So, from now on… when I talk about Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Mitt Romney, Mark Zuckerberg, Barrack Obama, George Soros, James Comey, or Dr. Anthony Fauci I will refer to them as anti-America-First Globalists.
I know many of you will continue using your own adjectives, but when in polite society or in front of your kids, you might consider using this label. Who knows, maybe someday I will see a journalist interviewing a politician with the question, “Senator, your opponents are labeling you as an anti-America-First Globalist. How do you respond?”
As always, our Friday editions include a joke and a recipe - have a great weekend!
