Find the stupidest things Obama has said

and make a meme, and flood the net.
And when they push their meme at you, push right back. Just a sentence. No, it doesn’t need to be impeccably sourced, no it doesn’t need to make sense, even. It just needs to be catchy. Get Back In The Trenches | According To Hoyt

Your Say

Its too late to turn this train around, but a tactic that would work is to find what makes up the leftist mindset and attack that. Using the same tactics they use is idiotic; they use tactics effective against the right not against themselves.
Yes, mockery works on everyone, but what makes us feel stupid or wrong doesn't work on them.

For example, the right feels the need to be good and just. The left does not. The right feels the need to follow a specific code of behavior and be consistent, to have integrity. The left does not. You cannot shame them with hypocrisy, they have no shame and don't care if they're hypocritical.

You have to find what they care about most and tailor the attack around that not just use their playbook with different words. It won't work.

One thing the left most dearly wants is to be thought of as being a good person. Not a righteous person, but a person who is not mean or thuggish, not racist. Another concept dear to the left is that they're intellectual and scientific, so very smart and capable. A third thing they care about and form their self-image around is being the outsider, the rebel, the anti-establishment. They're all individuals, just ask them. They cannot bear to admit that they've become the mainstream, that they are the man.

In other words, the left is made up of people who never outgrew high school mentality. That's where their intellectual and spiritual development ended. So dig into that and you find what to nail.

You can see what to use by looking at what they avoid reporting or talking about in themselves. Those idiots who got trapped in sea ice in Antarctica trying to prove the sea ice was gone? Notice how the papers didn't report that? Its because it makes them look stupid and unscientific. There's your clue. There's your leverage.

That's why the anti-Obama stuff never got any traction, because we were trying to use all their techniques and tools. It just doesn't work.

I found the stupidest thing Jim Morrison ever said and mashed it up with Obama and tweeted it out there. I like this game!

@ Christopher Taylor, you rock.

Call Leftists liars, greedy, racist, sexist, peddlers of misery and ignorance and stop using euphemisms or only ironically talking about "fairness."

Our side is pretty passive-agressive and speak in indirect ways. I particularly hate the "what would they say if it was GWB doing XYZ?" That is so passive and drained of energy all it does is cement in OUR minds we are battered wives with an unfair husband.

We don't reduce incivility when we avoid name-calling. All we do is make sure that 99% of the incivility is directed at us and only The Leftist's view is making its way into the ear of the so-called moderates. When we are polite we are ignored.

Be Breitbart.

I'm with Scott. The whole idea that the Left is a bunch of hypocrites carries no water in this battle. It moves them not, since they can't see it, and it only serves to assuage our sense of having declared our moral superiority-- and allows us to get back to watching Duck Dynasty.

Chris has a point. And it's great to see that others are starting to recognize elements of the fundamental problem: conservatives' persistent - active AND passive - compromise with the broken ideology of the left's moral adolescence.


Obamacare: Trickle-down Incompetence

That sort of thing?

Because it's not possible to shame these people. Not possible to call them on logic. One needs to ridicule them to the point of eliciting an outburst that wakes up the not-yet-completely-brain-dead... an outburst like GLAAD's (and friends') tirade against Phil Robertson.
