Joseph Goebbels was the propaganda specialist for Adolph Hitler. The following quote is attributed to him:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.”
Most people think he was describing his own propaganda style. But that is probably not true. He was probably talking about political opponents. On January 12, 1941, Goebbels wrote the following about “Churchill’s Lie Factory:”
The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.[
Big lies are often told by people who have deluded themselves into believing things that are patently absurd. This is why the airheads on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and others are shrieking hysterically. They believe all the lies they have been telling about Trump.
It is no longer possible to watch any MSM news channel without being told that Donald Trump is a threat to humanity and guilty of treason. That is absurd, but the liberal left is too full of vile hatred to care. The problem is that a high percentage of people, or more accurately a high percentage of democrats, believe that Donald Trump did commit treason. They believe he is a racist. They believe he is a threat to national security. Some of them are likely to be incentivized to commit violence.
If you truly believed that, wouldn’t you feel compelled to take action? If these allegations are true, are not extreme measures not only justified but required. What makes this worse is that anyone who dares support Trump is considered to be equally guilty. This won’t be limited to insulting Sarah Sanders because she dares to eat out at a restaurant with her family. Someone is going to get seriously hurt.
When that happens, the MSM will blame Donald Trump. They believe that he is the one fermenting hatred. They obviously don’t believe in mirrors. They would be wise to read the final portion of that quote by Joseph Goebbels. : “The lie can be maintained only for such a time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie.”
It wouldn’t even be a surprise to see someone attempt to assassinate Trump or a member of his family. John Wilkes Booth seriously thought he would be a hero for assassinating President Lincoln. His problem is that he was reading the Richmond Newspapers. He was shocked to learn, following the assassination, that no one on either side of the issue thought of him as anything other than world-class villain. The same fate awaits those who foolishly listen to CNN and then decide it is time for action.
It is too bad those people Goebbling up the news are the ones least like to pay the price for their irresponsible behavior.
