The Smear Tactics Of The Left [Update at 2025]

02 March 2010 @ 14:48

One of the most informative kind of posts an intelligent and common sense-filled blogger can publish is one where he or she feels compelled by some incident or action to write down and publish their thoughts at length on some issue or belief in a form greater than the typical one or two paragraph blog-bite.

As an example, when The Classic Liberal or Smitty or Irish Cicero get motivated on some issue of freedom and/or liberty, you know a mini-essay or treatise that is well-worth one’s time is going to spring forth in The Ether.

The best the best, the capo di tutti capi of blog philosophers as it were, in my opinion, is Robert Stacy McCain.  When he lets loose the hard-won wisdom from his mind, you can be sure that you will be rewarded with right reason and common sense.

Today we have been blessed with another example of his fervent [and caffine and cigarette infused] brain in action.

Stacy has posted the letter he sent to Allen Estrin, Producer of Dennis Prager’s radio show, that lays out the smear tactics used by the Left to libel conservatives specifically and non-hardcore-Leftists generally.  It is dead solid perfect in its description of what the Left does when confronted by ANY opposition to its ideas and schemes.  It should be required reading for any member of the Right.

Here’s one of the tactics:

The ‘Links and Ties’ Method – More than simple guilt-by-association, the Links-and-Ties Method involves presenting a chain of incidental connections to suggest a sympathy of views that does not actually exist. To wit: Target A once spoke at Event B which was sponsored by Group C, co-founded by Person D who once made controversial statement E. By this method, it is implied that Target A actually endorses Statement E.

I urge you to take the time to click here and read the full posting.

Know your enemy!

UPDATE at 2025…

GatorDoug has some nice words for what Stacy and I have written.  Thank you.  He expands on the above with some pretty good speechifying himself.  A highlight:

They are advocating for ideals that not only fail, to better life, but, in fact have proved a blight upon mankind. So, they are forced to either admit that they are wrong, or attempt to so smear their opponents that these opponents will be silenced. If their opponents are intimidated into silencing their message out of fear of being called a racist, sexist, etc, then the Leftist has won. If their opponent’s reputation is so soiled by these smears that no one believes them, then, again, the Leftist wins.

To a committed Leftist ANY tactic is OK. Lies, smears, intimidation, personal attacks on character, everything is on the table. The Leftist is a classic bully in many ways….

Damned if that isn’t a fine way to put it: ‘The Leftist is a classic bully’.  Damn right he is [with green teeth and a name like Scott Farkus].

Bully for you, Doug.
