#1 So, "Democratic Socialists are teh real racists!"?

People on the right have been using variations of this argument for decades now. Has it actually accomplished anything? The sad reality is that a large number (majority?) of minorities will be happy to take whatever Free Shit is on offer and if costs white taxpayers in the bargain, than so much the better.

No surprise that this is a Conor Friedersdorf article.

#2 People on the right have been using variations of this argument for decades now.

Because it's a fact?

#3 My point is that it hasn't done any good in persuading its target audience.

Is this about congratulating ourselves on how right we are, or is it about getting results?

#4 Is this about congratulating ourselves on how right we are, or is it about getting results?

It's about living in the real, and not a fantasy, world. As regards the results: Trump got the working class, and to hell with the "credentialed" who will stick with Democrats to keep their phony-baloney jobs.

#5 I reierate: Fridersdorf is doing the "Dems are the real racists" shtick that hasn't made a dent...ever.

How is it "living in the real world" to repeatedly use a tactic that's been a demonstrable failure in all that time?

What was Einstein's famous definition of insanity again?

#6 Because it isn't a tactic, charger - it's the Truth!

#7 So, Charger, we should lie? Do you think that helps? *meh*

#8 Good, it’s true. But what would be a more persuasive argument that is also true?

#9 How about concentrating on core constituency?

My point exactly.

#11 "But-but-but the Socialists Care! And Big Business is Evil-Evil-Evil!" That's about the level of the responses I have gotten no matter the argument or facts given.... *Sigh*

#12 It's not about facts. It's all about the Feelz now. And Persuasion.
