Unpacking the 2018 Midterms: HATE WINS!

HATE scored a big win in the 2018 midterm elections this week.

Other big winners were disinformation, unrelenting propaganda and the Power Elite Ruling Class UniParty.

But mostly it was HATE that drove progressive Democrats, virtue-signalling low-information voters and enraged elites to the polls on Tuesday and flipped the House of Representatives from Red to Blue.

“I HATE Trump” was the mantra of the Left from the moment he was declared the victor in the 2016 presidential race and it was/is/and shall be the single most powerful emotion guiding Leftists/Progressives/Democrats moving forward for the next two year election cycle.

And why not?

With the structural Big Media disinformation & propaganda machinery churning out fake news, semi-truthful stage-managed news and withholding/minimizing positive news after day after day after day for over two and half years now there is no arguing with success.

Entire “narratives” were constructed out of minor events to create the outrage du jour.

A well-constructed & supported singular narrative centering on HATE was designed to make voters See Red and was the primary scaffolding that the fear-mongering Ruling Class UniParty used to turn the House Blue.

HATE of Trump, Deplorables and conservatives was the primary motivator for a large swath of the blue electorate.

Think about how often you heard some version of “I just HATE Trump so much!” riffed on in the Big Media Entertainment Complex over the past 735 days.

The HATE narrative played out every day, multiple times a day, though just about any Major Media Outlet – you pick ’em.

Such is the power of propaganda and disinformation as stoked by an enraged, threatened and vindictive Elitist Ruling Class.

By using the HATE narrative  Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals unlawfully residing in the country were romanticized and transformed into “immigrants” – conjuring a fiction that such individuals have gone through the established due process required to enter the United States.

Opposing points of view were routinely characterized as HATE.

Liberal “dog whistle” worship words such as “racist”, “sexist” and “homophobic” are applied to political opponents as a means of bullying them into compliment silence lest they be paired as HATERS.

Instead of engaging in respectful and rational discussion/debate over such serious issues as illegal immigration and due process under law gleeful progressive HATERS routinely steam-roll thought-offenders into complicit silence.

Herbert Marcuse’s Neo-Marxist doctrine of “repressive tolerance” (whereby the preemptive quashing of certain “wrong-thought” is encouraged), has extended from the halls of academia to society at large.

In this brave new world where doublespeak rules the day  “LOVE TRUMPS HATE” means it’s OK to threaten to punch your Deplorable neighbor in the throat and  “TOLERANCE” means “STFU if ya know what’s good for ya.”

Labels that conjure the most horrible days of the 20th Century – “NAZI” & “FASCIST” – are served up as the high, tight purpose pitch of seething liberal elite HATE for the purpose of effectively de-legitimizing opposing arguments and de-humanizing the opposition’s arguer.

The Media/Progressive/Elite Uniparty has let the HATE flow through them for so long now, and with such intensity, that it is now very difficult if not downright impossible for conservatives & Deplorables to let bye-gones be bye-gones. Months of being called Nazis and racists can’t just be walked back with a simple “Well, we won this round so let’s be civil and bi-partisan, OK?”

Blood libels driven by HATE are the most unforgivable of sins; they are the great destroyer of trust, comity and any reservoir of good will.

The progressive machine uncorked the HATE jug two years ago and may find that genie is not particularly interested in a return to the bottle. (Assuming they have the desire to do so  – which is a big if.)

As for the results of the midterm election:

HATE won.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
