If we are talking about the overwhelming majority of back men who vote Democrat then using the term "many" is accurate. Although making the statement that many vote Democrat because they are brainwashed may be racist (especially if it is implied that they do so purely bring brainwashing/lack of intelligence).

I'm not defending my "all" - statement. I told PlayDrive I was going to edit it to say "many." The edit feature had closed. (I believe...I'm not even sure about that.) Nonetheless, I admitted that was wrong. So shoot me.
Thank you, Quazi!
The APA officially does not believe in brainwashing.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I wasn't even thinking of the racism aspect, to be honest. I think a lot of people assume that the only way someone could disagree with them about a certain issue would be if they are brainwashed.
Ironically, the entire idea that many black people are "brainwashed" into supporting programs that "keep them down" could be described as a form of brainwashing in and of itself since very few people who say such things actually came to that conclusion on their own from their own research and analysis.
In the vast majority of instances, they are merely regurgitating something they heard someone else say which they automatically believed without ever putting in the effort to research the veracity of the claim.
Now while that could be described as brainwashing, I would just call it "normal" since most people seem to do this type of thing regardless of what side of the fence they are on.

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
I don't see any evidence of brainwashing in the general public. Mostly, people do what they want.
I think we are, along with every other race in this country. And the evidence to back it up is the crap these politicians get away with.
1) Democratic politicians convince people that Bush was involve with 911.
2) Republican politicians convince people that Obama hated America (Glen Beck).
That is why politics is good business because people in this country are emotional and not logical thinker.
It certainly doesn't make the news around here too often. Have you ever actually been to any of the rallies on that specific subject in Englewood or a similar neighborhood around here? Have you ever been in Englewood?
