The Self-Deception of the Left

How can the left possibly defeat a movement that they do not understand and, worse, that they purposely misunderstand? 

Michael Moore lies every times he opens his mouth.  For him it is easier to lie than to breathe.  But with that said, he is doing America and conservatives in the Tea Party a great service because the only people who listen to his bile are the left, and the more they are deceived, the easier they will be to defeat. 

Here is what I mean: as a military officer, I study tactics as a part of my professional development, and in my studies I learned that deception is a principle of war.  In other words, armies spend millions, even billions in deception because that gives them a tactical advantage.  This comes in every form imaginable, from pixelated camouflage uniforms so that soldiers can blend in with their environmen, to stealth aircraft, and from encrypted radio communications to spies spreading misinformation.

Sun Tzu, the great Chinese military tactician and philosopher, said:

If you know others and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know others but know yourself, you win one and lose one; if you do not know others and do not know yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

So, how can the left possibly defeat a movement (the Tea Party movement) that they do not understand and, worse, that they purposely misunderstand?  Can a pro basketball team win a championship if they never study their opponents?  Can they expect to win if they never scout, or watch a single game tape, or study the strengths and weakness of their opponents' key players?  Obviously the answer is no.

Now the great thing for the Tea Party and America is that the left is spending billions...to deceive themselves!  How cool is that?  We Tea Party activists literally could not buy such a great tactical advantage given to us by the Baghdad Bobs of the liberal misinformation corps like the HuffPo, Media Matters, MSNBC, and Michael Moore!  If this were a military engagement, it would be like the Japanese being told by their own leaders that America has no Navy, no Army, no Air Force, no leadership, and no industry.   

To show how this works, just look back on the history of the Tea Party and the innumerable success to this date along with the tons of misinformation.  Remember Obama saying that he was unaware of the Tea Party rally in Washington, D.C.?  Remember the media saying there were thousands of people at the 9-12 march when there was close to 800,000 in attendance?  Remember Pelosi calling the Tea Party astroturf?  Remember every Tea Party rally's total attendance being underreported if it was reported at all?  Remember the scorn and derision?

Well, it was all to our advantage, my friend, because they "misunderestimated" their opponent, and that is the greatest tactical error you can make.  History is full of examples of the effects of underestimating you opponent.  Some examples are highlighted in the book Arrogant Armies: Great Military Disasters and the Generals Behind Them, by James M. Perry.  Underestimating their opponent is the greatest weakness of the liberal juggernaut that includes academia, the media, Hollywood, organized labor, and the White House.  

For example, the left lost Kennedy's Senate seat to Scott Brown because of their arrogance, and that was just the beginning of the flood that was to come.  The left lost to Nikki Haley in South Carolina.  They lost to Ron Johnson in Wisconsin.  Rand Paul won in Kentucky, and Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania. 

In the U.S. House the victories in 2010 were historic.  The 2010 election resulted in the highest loss of a party in a House midterm election since 1938.  Republicans won 63 seats, making historic gains by a proportion not seen in over 70 years.  In fact, eighty-five percent of the Tea Party races in the House were against an incumbent.  Yet of that group, Tea Party candidates outperformed generic Republican candidates.  The Tea party movement also helped Republicans to capture more than 720 state legislature seats, which helped them to pick up 22 state legislatures.

The historic election in 2010 happened because the left was deceived by people like Michael Moore, so they underestimated the popularity and strength of the Tea Party movement.  So instead of getting mad when you see the lies spread by the left about the Tea Party, do what I do and smile knowingly as I get ready for another historic victory.
