- 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.
That's why everyone should stick with having a dirty mind, because if it's washed there may be something wrong
Agreed.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.
I also agree with this. My view of brainwashing is similar to what the Nazis tried to do Jewish image in Germany. They would push that Jews were evil and tried to warp ethics into justifying this like the Holocaust and other atrocities. When political pundits say things I don't really view it as brainwashing, because many of those pundits push what they think is true and really believe what they say. I think the act of brainwashing in the common sense of the term has to do largely with the intent of the brainwasher.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.

This is actually pretty interesting. I was going through the responses and allot of them ring true to at least some degree.
I would not call it brainwashing as that is not what it is. There is however a strange dichotomy of hopelessness and group think among a majority of blacks. It is the result of years of slavery and Jim Crow, the creation of the welfare state and finally drugs and the drug war. The introduction of crack cocaine was and is probably the single greatest threat not only to, but accelerating the downfall of the black family unit. Now drugs affect every walk of life, but the black community was hit particularly hard. All of these things have contributed to some degree to the downfall of the black family structure and community as a whole.
With a culture so decimated over such a long period of time, to many gave up and taught this to others. So the cycle is now firmly in place and killing us as a people.
So now the easy way out is seen to be the right way. Doing well in school makes you a slave to the white man and open to ridicule, while selling drugs is accepted and promoted as a way to succeed. Speaking ghetto slang is not only promoted but accepted by idiots running our schools. Speaking good english makes you an uncle Tom or less black. The "house nigger" mentality still exists to this day, and the darkness/lightness of your skin can still open you up to ridicule among your own.
So after all this people wonder why someone would think we could possibly be brainwashed? Not really a huge leap.
So the Democratic party is seen as the savior in the US, because they proclaim to be the party that cares about blacks and the needs of the black community. So in the end it really is not brain washing. It is black people reaching out for something or someone for hope.
Unfortunately to many do not see our system for what it is. Two party's that are two sides of the same coin out for one thing... Their own power and greed.

Thank you, Quazi!
But ironically, just last week on Fox Chicago this story ran:
Did you miss that in all your outrage over your perception of the lack of outrage? Granted, that one made the news because Dwayne Wade's nephew was shot. Those kinds of rallies happen all the time without getting any airtime.
Jackson and Sharpton are douchebag camera hounds who only go where there are cameras (and they don't decide where those cameras will be). they are a piss poor metric to judge the black communities outrage over the killings in their neighborhoods.

There are still rallies, though. There is still outrage. What there isn't is white interest in those stories. White people aren't outraged. They are outraged over the Martin/Zimmerman thing. Either they are outraged that Zimmerman is still free, or they are outraged that people are making it about race.
White outrage is what sells advertising slots.
