Daughtry reveals three political warfare tactics of the left being used in our culture and politics to distract and delegitimize President Trump – a “pig-pen strategy,” vilification campaigns and gaslighting. The “pig-pen strategy,” from the old “Peanuts” cartoons, comes from the efforts to throw a cloud of innuendo, doubt and even the impression of corruption around Trump. The rise of vilification campaigns, as taught by Saul Alinsky, is reducing our civility as Democrats try to destroy, not debate, those who disagree with them, Daughtry explains. Gaslighting is on display as arguments like the “Russians hacked the election” or “Putin is controlling President Trump” attempt to manipulate public opinion. Reality dislocation techniques can erode Trump’s approval ratings so as to slow the bold Trump mandates.Share
Daughtry suggests Republicans go on the offense with Russia, citing an example from “Clinton Cash” where Russians gained enormous power over America’s uranium, threatening our national security interests through donations to the Clinton Foundation. If Republicans would just expand the Russian investigation, Americans could get to the bottom of Putin’s use of foreign money and insiders to influence policies, not just our elections.
Commenting on our culture and the sensitive “snowflakes” on American campuses, Daughtry says no violent revolution was needed to hurry along a socialist America. Instead, cultural Marxists have pursued a “long march through the institutions” that has America on the tipping point to socialism now.
“They have pushed through our cultural institutions. They have eroded individual liberty. They have separated the American people from the idea of our Constitution, and our founding ideas. They are so close to the socialist agenda right now” that Daughtry says he thinks that even if Ohio Gov. John Kasich or former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had been elected, they too would be framed as “fascists” from the Democrat’s playbook.
Daughtry has only one suggestion after praising Trump for his early efforts to secure the borders, bring about regulatory reform, confront political correctness and submit a bold federal budget and reform plan. The president has the capital to confront the “deep state,” — the shadow government and permanent bureaucracy trying to sabotage his presidency with malicious leaks and slow-walking of proposals.
