Why Trump Will Win In 2020: Exhibit AOC-449

One article that’s been providing some fascinating insights into politics (as well as bits and piece of my personal life) over the past couple of years) is “20 Diversion Tactics Highly Manipulative Narcissists, Sociopaths And Psychopaths Use To Silence You” by Shahida Arabi.

And yes, I know – “Narcissism” is the pop-psych diagnosis du jour meaning “someone I really don’t like”, these days. I’ll ask you to consider my argument on its merits, rather than its resonance with a pulsing mob of pop culture droogs.

Anyway – tactic #3 is called “Nonsensical conversations from hell” – sometimes called “word salad”:

Malignant narcissists and sociopaths use word salad, circular conversations, ad hominem arguments, projection and gaslighting to disorient you and get you off track should you ever disagree with them or challenge them in any way. They do this in order to discredit, confuse and frustrate you, distract you from the main problem and make you feel guilty for being a human being with actual thoughts and feelings that might differ from their own. In their eyes, you are the problem if you happen to exist.

Now, it could be I’m partaking in the pop-culture kool-aid, but I can’t be the only one who thought “word salad” when I they read this.

20 thoughts on “Why Trump Will Win In 2020: Exhibit AOC-449

  1. PLEASE please please focus on AOC between now and Nov 2020. PUUUUHHHLLEEEEZZEEE!!!!!!! She’s advocating populist economic theory, pointing out the fraudulent stance of Trump on the same points AND, double-bonus, she’s not running, so you’ll be focusing on something which the voters likely will find irrelevant. Is she too extreme, yes, is she strident, yes, but so is the Cry-Baby-in-Chief, sooo, what again was your point about the person who isn’t running? You want to make this election about her, all I have to say is, knock yourself out. That way we’ll be sure to get rid of the con-man in the White House who has conned all of you into thinking he’s out for the little guy.

    Evidence Trump is going to get trounced in 2020, point # 1645293, he denies climate change is occurring, yet Jefferson, MO, along with dozens of locales across the Midwest THIS WEEK, experienced increased levels of violent weather. Please champion that it’s a Chinese Hoax while you vent your spleen about AOC, that will be sooo successful.

  2. malignant Narcissism might as well be called leftism or SJW syndrome these days.

  3. When an articles 1st paragraph is the following:

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., explained Sunday that a “core component” of her Green New Deal legislation is ending “colonial” attitudes that dominate community gardens.

    And thats from a “legitmate news source” and not the Babylon Bee or Onion headline you just kind of throw up your hands and say… I give up.

  4. And reason 1645234 is this..

    Trump doesn’t understand the difference between a trade deficit and a real one and further doesn’t understand that getting into a trade war leads to higher costs for US citizens and depressed trade for US producers. Might it be effective in the very long term? Sure, but Trump will never be President long enough (no one will) to play the sort of long game the Chinese are playing. So, US consumers and producers suffer as Trump blames non-whites for the decisions of US companies to move jobs to China.

    He could be MORE vulnerable, but not a lot more.

  5. AOC isn’t smart enough to be using word hash as a weapon; it’s sincere.

    The twaddle coming out of her pie hole makes perfect sense to her because there is never any danger of a synapse connection between her lizard brain and the higher reasoning areas…because there is no higher reasoning area in her brain pan.

  6. The video of AOC resonates strongly when I think about having a conversation with a person afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease. The sentences were grammatically correct and the conversation on the surface seemed to be headed somewhere. But in the end, it was all a lot of blather.

  7. “2018 will be the first year with no violent tornadoes in the United States.” According to WashPo. So yeah, I guess anything over that would be an increase.

    Still proof of nothing.

  8. What we see is a 79 year old woman, in this case Pelosi, easily besting Trump. And we also see him (and you all) being intimidated by a 5’2″ tall Latina because she speaks to actual populist ideas rather than fake ones. You want to build her into your new boogey-(wo)man, knock yourself out, she’s not running but the reality is it reflects the crassness of your approach. You (and he) want to focus on the extreme but even more you (and he) want to focus on the person and personality because your politics are the politics of feeling and (cult) personality. Clinton had the warmth of a brick and the charisma of a cup of water and Trump had the advantage of not having had his policies shown up as garbage. If you focus on personality, given his explosive temper and lack of decorum, you lose. If you focus on populism, you lose, because you are not populists, you’re the chattel of the rich. If he attempts to run on the economy, well, that’s the one area where Dems need to have a good message, but if they do, you lose, because while the stock market went up 30%, it did that in year 1, and has been flat since, and while we have full employment, we have massive under-employment and most of all, because he’s done nothing to really lift wages or address health care or address infrastructure or address the cost of education, and for that, if the Dems stay off personality politics, you lose. So please, keep up the politics of personality.

  9. Pen,
    Conservatives point out the idiocy of AOC in response to the Democrats and the Media (ptr) making her into the new face and ideological thought leader of the Democrat Party. If your side hadn’t put her on the front page of magazines then our side would merely consider her another freshman from a deep blue district, and we wouldn’t even know her name.

  10. AOC: “Cauliflower is whypipul food. We grow Yucca in community gardenz; whypipul die; 68 IQ mud hut dwellers come for delicious yucca sandwiches, take over America and save the world!

    Teh Peevee drinks it in…

    She’s advocating populist economic theory, pointing out the fraudulent …blah, blah, fucking blah

    She’s a genius of economics! Everyone can see it clearly and will flock to the polls! Drumpf’s getting Pwn3d! ya ha ha!

    Guatamala wouldn’t take all of the average college educated American leftists in trade for 1 of their peasants.

    At least the peasants can do useful manual labor.

  11. Pen exudes the socials disconnect leftists have with your typical person in “flyover country” aka here. Its practically to the point where the real thoughts of these people are better and more hilarious than any satirist could come up with. The only types of jobs in jeopardy in the Trump administration are satirists and internet “journalism” sites like Vice or HuffPo. And oddly enough the two are merging unintentionally.

  12. Peev apparently can’t figure out that pointing out that the ideological face of the Democratic Party claims that cauliflower is cultural appropriation is, indeed, a winning electoral strategy.

    Side note; I gladly culturally appropriate the Jewish Scriptures, coffee, chocolate, ethnic foods from many nations, Roman and English legal customs and rights, Greek and other learning….and if it tastes good, I’d even try yucca, maybe with a shot of Puerto Rican rum along with it.

  13. 2020 will be so much damn fan. Im gearing up for Meme War 2: Electric Bogaloo on Facebook. Despite the press there are still tons of places for right of center folks to hang out together on Facebook. And it is fun.

  14. Reasons Trump will lose: Liberals still hate him and insist we vote against him.

    Reasons Trump will win: Nobody likes being scolded by Liberals.

    The more Pen and Friends wag their fingers in our faces, the more I’m thinking Trump-slide.

  15. Joe, there are two reasons to vote Trump n3xt year.
    1. Cemetery gardeners are already including RBG’s nutritional input into next year’s lawn feed budget.

    2. There’s a fighting chance that the Antifa type leftists will become completely uncorked, initiating a massive, and hopefully unnecessarily brutal crackdown on the left.

    Y’all need to take notice in what’s happening in Europe. Nationalism is set to make a huge sea change. Maybe they can lead us out of the darkness for a change.

  16. Heck, if the Freedom Party (FPÖ) does as well as everyone thinks they will, I may have to open a helicopter tour franchise in Austria next year.

  17. Ocasio-Cortez has a degree in economics from Boston University. She graduated cum laude.
