The tactics that have been utilized against gun owners have filtered over into every corner of the political realm. The Left is desperate to undo every gain that the voters of the United States have earned in the last two years. Any semblance of ties to the conventions of decency and honesty have been severed and the tactics of Everytown have been fully embraced throughout the media and Democrat Party.
What are Everytown tactics? The most famous or infamous is the gun violence/gun laws poll of Chicago done by Everytown for Gun Safety, toted by President Obama, and still inexplicable held as proof by Democrats that their gun laws reduce gun violence. Everytown started with the gun violence rates of Chicago alone before the implementation of strict gun laws, then factored in the gun violence rates of all of the rural farming communities of Illinois with Chicago’s violence rate, and, surprise, Chicago’s gun violence rate dropped dramatically when mixing in all the farming communities that had a violence by gun rate of zero.
This polling “study” was exposed eventually for fraud and Everytown was even called before Congress to answer for it; but still it is used by Democrats, which exposes the true purpose of polling data by the Left. Liberals no longer gather information to find the pulse and direction of the people. They formulate data to drive the direction and pulse of the people.
In elections past, liberals have used this tactic to depress conservatives from voting. Polling data would always appear showing enthusiasm among conservatives was not strong, the moral compass of the nation shifting, and liberals so enthusiastic. Election after election this tactic was used effectively to discourage the conservative vote
The polls always seemed so accurate because conservatives believed them and allowed themselves to despair of victory. The belief in polling is strengthened only because voters historically allowed themselves to be manipulated by them. In time, polling seemed almost prophetic and candidates whom the polls prophesied against trembled at their doom, at least, until last election.
Donald Trump didn’t give a rat’s hairy hindquarters about polling. He was all business and, what every businessman and politician wish they were, the ultimate showman. He laughed, mocked, scorned, and exposed all of the Left’s tactics.
So when the inevitable polling prophesied his defeat, he called them liars. His supporters fed off his enthusiasm and he, in turn, fed off theirs, and together they defeated the inevitable. But the job is not complete.
Again, the left is using Everytown style polling to try and put voters back in their place. To discourage the enthusiasm to take their government back, the Left will use every lying poll they can and voters must ignore them again, again, and again. Stand resolute to finish the task and support the President who is fighting for you.
It’s not enough to bask in the satisfaction of seeing the Left “get theirs.” Voters need to be the immovable force that stands like a breakwater against all the lies, rioting, threats, and false polling meant to dissuade the voter from going to the polls. This nothing more than little Johnny or Suzy throwing a tantrum because they are used to adults giving in just to quiet them and spare the embarrassment.
Liberals are used to manipulating exhausted Americans with tantrums. The noise may be exhausting, it may look insurmountable, and probably intimidating. It supposed to be. That’s the tactic.
Now is not the time for Americans to give back any ground. Giving an inch to Johnny only makes him worse in the next tantrum. Let’s be that immovable force, not give any ground, and prove them liars once again.
