  • Channeling Goebbels

    The Minister of the Environment and Climate Change Liberal member Catherine McKenna was recorded at a bar telling people that "If you actually say it louder we've learned in the House of Commons if you repeat it,say it louder if that is your talking point people will totally believe it"

    Which almost mirrors Joseph Goebbels statement on pushing lies on the public the Minister is responsible for pushing the green agenda in Canada in particular the Carbon Tax it's not surprising in this government that they share similar mindsets of dictatorships.
    The Green agenda is being pushed by dangerous fanatics who'll do anything for power.

    This is the exact quote, including interpunction.
    “I said that if you actually say it louder, we’ve learned in the House of Commons, if you repeat it, if you say it louder, if that is your talking point, people will totally believe it.”
    What does this have to do with Goebbels in particular?

    What she said is no secret, it's used from the far right to the far left, and it was introduced when people started to live in communities, which is like a handful of thousands years ago.

    Godwin's Law in the thread title and OP with no obvious or particular connection with Goebbels.
    Very farfetched.

      Goebbels said the bigger the lie the more believable it becomes a similar tactic is being used by her.
      The comparison to the Nazis is fine it doesn’t mean she is one.

        AS a student of WW2, Trump channels Goebbels more than any other political figure I've ever seen.

        Goebbel's main feature was his constant overselling/arrogant claims, sense of humor, and testicle dangling macho-speak.

        Both Goebbels and Trump were capable of seeing the emotional/spiritual hunger of their followers and target it directly.

        Both targets the fantasies and desires of his followers with magical thinking

            People find it hard to believe that a rational person can come to that conclusion based on the posts that preceded it.

            How does not liking Trump make someone un-American?
            How does accepting the science that climate change is real mean people hate America, are on the Left at all or are like nazis?

              Agree completely.

              Trump is a self-promoting demagogue and a bully. And he is a dictator wannabe. He is the worst president the US has ever had.

              We are not now that strength which in old days
              Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
              Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
              To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                That is a completely ridiculous statement. Do you even understand what right and left mean politically? All that statement does is maintain the political divide in the US that Trump supports. He is not a uniter for the nation, but a divider and that is done purposely. All you have to do to understand that is to listen to him spout his hate and lies.

                  Agree completely. The Trump supporters will believe anything that the demagogue says, factual or not, and they blame others for being less than truthful. I have never heard of Trump taking responsibility for anything that he screws up, and that is a long list.

                    Another example of Trump playing the 'Goebbels card':

                    [FONT="&amp]https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/10/politics/trump-mexico-tariffs/index.html[/FONT]

                    'President Donald Trump is blasting critics who claim his new border agreement with Mexico is a mirage rather than the huge victory he is claiming, as he rides into a fresh week of constitutional collisions with Democrats.'
                    'Trump unleashed a torrent of tweets and called into CNBC on Monday morning to proclaim the immigration deal as a triumph, argue that it would never have been achieved without his use of tariffs as a weapon and warn that China would also have to cave, addressing a separate economic duel.'

                    'Like many of Trump's wins, there are questions about whether the immigration deal adds up to real progress or is a contrived solution conjured up to get him out of yet another self-created crisis. His determination to politicize the issue is only adding to the doubts.'

                    Nothing but more Trump lies and the tail wagging the dog. Little Boy Bone-Spur is again crying 'wolf.'

                    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                      The Trump regime is mirroring the Nazi playbook. Slowly and surely manipulating the vulnerable minds of people willing to fall into the trap.

                      Rush is an expert at propaganda, Fox is right behind.

                        I've traveled to over 75 cities and towns over the past year. I can understand the spiritual disappointment over the current state of america (or, the reality is, the disappointment that is their lives projected into an obsession with nutjob politics?) of Trump loyalists - but clinging on a man in a high place to save the nation with magical thinking is presumptuous and moronic... The brown people didn't cause as many problems as you think!

                          No no, the people with no money who are brown skinned are responsible for the lack of money among some white people. It's not the fault of the other white people who are rich, powerful, run things, and actually have the money. It's can't be their fault because the TV channels (which are owned by those rich white people) and the President that those rich white people paid to get elected said it's not their fault.

                          See, it has to be the fault of those brown people.

                            Usual nonsens from a member of Deep State : Trump was elected by the Deplorables against the Establishment, against the rich white people who wanted elected Hillary .
