Propaganda Politics and the AR Machine

This clearly explains why we will never change the AR (animal rights movement)… simply exchange “of Donald Trump” to “of AR crazies”………….

Altemeyer on Trump’s Supporters

7 JUL 2017 

John W. Dean, former counsel to President Richard Nixon, relates the research and words of psychology professor Bob Altemeyer as the latter explains how difficult it would be to change the minds of supporters of Donald Trump [..of AR crazies….]

 

We know enough about authoritarian supporters from research, and history, to know it will be very hard to change their minds about the leader they adore.
  • They are extremely ethnocentric, dividing the world sharply into people in their in-group, and automatically disliking all others. They feel politicians who promote minority rights and immigration discriminate against them. Donald Trump tells them they are right. He is their champion.
  • They are highly dogmatic. They get their ideas from others in the in-group, especially from their leader, not from evidence and logic. They say there is no evidence that will make them change their minds. They’re quite comfortable believing “alternate facts.”  [in other words, ARs get their ideas from key AR groups like HSUS et al, and other radical movements which claim animals are equal to humans]
  • They get great satisfaction from being part of a large movement. Being in a cohesive crowd at rallies thrills them because they silently tell one another, just by being there, that they are powerful and right. They create an echo chamber that reinforces the belief that all the good people think like they do. {{D U H>>>}
  • They severely limit their sources of information. They get the news that they want to get. This also produces an echo chamber when the news sources they trust are copying each other and relaying Trump’s message.  …the AR PROPAGANDA      
  • They have highly compartmentalized minds. When an unpleasant truth forces its way into their awareness, they do not try to integrate the other things they believe with it. Instead they put it in a box and isolate it from the rest of their thinking, which proceeds as if the truth never existed.
  • ……………………………….D O U B L E  duh.…………………………………………………………………..
Put all this together and you get an idea how hard it will be to change their minds about Donald Trump.     THE ANIMAL RIGHTS  FRONT…INCLUDING BEST FRIENDS, ASPCA, HSUS, AND ALL OF THE OTHER GROUPS…………………………..
