How to Persuade a Trump Supporter to Reject and Resist Trumpism

I noticed one item glaringly absent from this article: FACTS. You list the various techniques of propagandists to persuade someone, such as a Trump supporter, that their fact-based positions are wrong. You could better persuade someone if you could show that their position is not based on facts, but on lies. But unfortunately for you Libs, most of what Trump offers is based on fact, so good luck with that persuasion thingy. Hyperbole and bombast excluded, there are no substantive issues about which Trump has lied.

On the other hand, there are so many Lib positions that are based on lies, not facts, that it is hard to persuade rational people away from their positions. Example: Black Lives Matter is based on the lie that Michael Brown shouted “Hands up, don’t shoot,” and was shot down in cold blood by a racist cop. That simply did not happen, as proven by eye witnesses and supported by forensic evidence. Another Lib lie is the assertion that man-caused climate change exists. To bolster this lie, the data has been changed and manipulated: East Anglia’s leaked emails admitting they lied and that they destroyed their raw data; NOAA changing their historic recorded temperatures (given away by the fact that they failed to change wind-chills, heat indexes and other data and calculations); NASA changing their satellite data in order to “prove” warming has occurred in areas where it did not; the made-up and inconsistent methodologies in collecting climate data in the first place. Many other examples of Liberal lies are out there as well.

Bottom line: facts are the best way to persuade anyone, but if you Libs used facts, you would be Conservatives.
