Wow! So Fear and Crass Pandering ARE Parts of the Republican National Committee's Strategy

4 March 2010 at 8:32:30 AM

I had always hoped that appealing to people's worst fears was an accidental, or perhaps a random occurrence, with the Republican party. Nope. It's an integral part of their marketing strategy.

Document link is here.

and a DNC response.

It’s no wonder the RNC reacted with alarm when they learned the American people would see this presentation. This revealing document proves what the Republican party has long denied. But now, by their own admission, the express strategy of the Republican party is not to offer new ideas, but ‘fear.’ Republicans can no longer deny that they are peddling fear when they are literally selling it as their path back to power.

and more smirking from Gawker (with pic of the Evil Empire slide)

It is openly contemptuous of rich, major donors—it suggests that their political donations are ego-driven, and that they can be bought off with TCHOCHKES! (Presumably because they're Jewish?) (Oh, and another great reason for rich folks to donate is apparently something called "access.")

But it's even worse on grassroots small donors, who are the only people Michael Steele's had any success with: it basically openly admits that their approach to campaigning is based around groundless fear-mongering and the fostering of a hysterical atmosphere of trumped up panic.

Um, nope.  The grassroots small donors are fed up to their eyeballs with Steele and the RNC.

@Marcy-Seems to me that the whole idea in America of having *2 parties* needs to get changed. I read a book a few years back called "No Party" which talked about the whole system of funnelling votes. On my side, I got fed up with the Democratic party and it looks like you're fed up with the Republican party. There's nothing that I can find that is constitutional about a two party system, and it wasn't until 1997 that the SCOTUS gave the concept some legitimacy.

The two- party system is obsolete and controlling by fear is one of the oldest (and most successful) strategies in the world. They don't scare me. How about you?
