@Debradelai, @ThomasWic,

Does anyone out there see any similarities with the tactics that the left is using to take down our POTUS with the tactics used in guerrilla warfare?

If so, the main motivation in all of this might not be to impeach the president, but to win the support of local populations.

If by chance this is the mindset behind all of this right now, what was done in history to fight and win against such an onslaught of small attacks from every direction?

@Debradelai @ThomasWic

I have been reading and I see that the best way to combat guerrilla warfare is through attrition.

Killing more than they lose.

But the general population will turn their back on you if there is collateral damage, so how do you destroy the enemy without collateral damage?

How can we combat against the tactics being used against our President right now, without turning the general population against us?

We need to gain followers instead of turn them away.

@ilumanous @ThomasWic

Alas, you cannot compare the ideological struggle we face with actual guerrilla warfare.

Apples and oranges.

The tactics used against our President are neither novel nor, ultimately, effective.

@Debradelai @ilumanous @ThomasWic
It's like propaganda/psychological warfare that they are engaging against Trump. It is not working for them.

@redwhitebluedude @Debradelai @ilumanous @ThomasWic

Using psychological warfare against President Trump is like using a box fan against a hurricane.

What a futile effort.

@Debradelai @ThomasWic

I realize this. I am not talking about physical things. To be honest I believe we are up against a spiritual attack but just like Sun Tsu there are so many things that can be useful in fighting spiritual battles and I was just wondering if anyone had any concepts that I could glean on this topic.

@ilumanous @ThomasWic

I fear there are no easy ways. This is an ideological battle for which we are ruefully unprepared.

@WarriorPoet @Debradelai @ThomasWic

No. News of Trumps demise is greatly exaggerated. He will triumph over this.

My concern is for the hearts and minds of our children and grandchildren.

@ilumanous @Debradelai @ThomasWic
Okay one more time

The ideological battle that Saul spoke of....

We are losing


@WarriorPoet @ilumanous @Debradelai @ThomasWic I disagree. Not only is the ideology of PFJT winning but is gaining momentum and spreading across groups never before engaged like they are today. There are a lot of victim groups now seeing the Dimms getting rich off their backs by skimming money that was sent to their districts only to disappear down rat holes. The corruption is being shown to everyone paying attention. The blow back on the elites in DC will be incredible.

"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,

Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,

To the last syllable of recorded time;

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools

The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,

And then is heard no more. It is a tale

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing."

@Debradelai @ty1028 @ilumanous @ThomasWic

Well apparently I have read Douglas Adams.

Been a very long time I read it when I was a teenager

"Time is an illusion"

@Debradelai @ty1028 @ilumanous @ThomasWic

Not long after I read "Beelzebub's Tales to his grandson."

Not by Adams of course

That's where I first learned about the dance of the idiots

@Debradelai @ty1028 @ilumanous @ThomasWic

Those poor three brained beings that have lost their tails...

Thereby losing their balance

@WarriorPoet @ilumanous @Debradelai @ThomasWic

I personally believe that we will ultimately win the ideological battle, but that it will get worse before it gets better.

We are beginning to gain some ground in the dissemination of real, factual reporting of events. But until there is a significant breach in the firewall surrounding the paid propagandists — who control most of what the public sees/hears — we won’t see much change.

Once the pendulum starts to swing back, it will be rapid.

@ilumanous @Debradelai @ThomasWic
It's kind of funny because in that last statement you both disagreed and agreed.

Wasn't talking about about the demise of trump

@WarriorPoet @Debradelai @ThomasWic

Got it.

But, what I was talking about with Guerrilla Warfare is that it is possible to beat your enemy but turn the general population towards the enemies side.

My question was how to win this war but also win the heart of the general population.

For instance I have a lot of Japanese friends who were alive during WW2 and my Korean friends that were alive during the war talk glowingly about General McArthur.

@ilumanous @WarriorPoet @ThomasWic

You are placing the cart before the horse.

This war can only be won by winning over the hearts of the Hoi Polloi, assuming they have one.

There is no other valid strategy, there is no other valid scenario.

@Debradelai @WarriorPoet @ThomasWic

I guess I am just going by my guts but I personally believe that this war is going to be won, and it is going to be won on our side.

That is, on the side of those of us who believe in freedom, truth and righteousness. (I am not talking Democrat or Republican)

But my prayer is that it is not done in a way that we win the war, but lose generations of impressionable young people forever.

I guess that God will just have to handle this Himself.

@ilumanous @Debradelai

Make the guerillas overreach.

Which is what Trump is doing.

That causes them to lose support.

@ThomasWic @ilumanous @Debradelai
That seems to be what he is doing all the time to his opponents and in their hubris do not get this pattern.

@ThomasWic @Debradelai

I like that. 👍

It reminds me of my baboon theory.

Have you ever seen a baboon at the zoo?

They flash their red, bulbous butts as they prance around making a show, never thinking that their anus is only looked upon with delight by other baboons.

This never goes over well with the Hoi Polloi just trying to have a nice day with their families at the zoo.

People get sick of looking at their disgusting butts, especially once they start throwing their poo.

@ilumanous @ThomasWic @Debradelai

I love that you used ‘hoi polloi’
in your toot! Perfectly describes

@ilumanous @ThomasWic @Debradelai @Beemer4Trump

Lol. (Am sure I see this photo at least once a week on Quod.) To your initial post, this week I dedicated my boots on the ground to my local GOP and a specific candidate I like in the 7th District of GA, which will have our Repub Rep retiring next year. He was barely elected over a D contender in 2018. So this is a hot battle in Ga. As Don Saul has said this week, the elections are local. So I put my name in the hat to volunteer. Very excited.

@ilumanous @ThomasWic @Debradelai @Beemer4Trump

And I promise will not show you ever my buttkins. They are not bulbous anyway, very normal. Am a lady here.
