Last night on my way home from the OPEN MIC NIGHT I was listening to conservative talk radio. I usually listen to our liberal station here in Chicago WCPT (FM 99.9 92.5 92.7 AM820). It has a mix of of local shows and nationally syndicated AIR AMREICA programming as well as other lefty talkers like ED SCHULTZ. But since liveral radio is underfunded WCPT signs off between 9 and 11p.m. By the way, liberal radio is getting a bigger following these days. Maybe people are seing the light. Our local station (WCPT) went from a low power station at 850AM to a high power broadcast at 820AM extending the listening range then added three FM stations (99.9 95.7 95.2) extending the listening area all over Chicago and most suburbs - you can even pick it up in southern Wisconsin and western Indiana sometimes - all within a year. But I digress.
I was listening to MARK LEVIN last night who happens to come on after the bane of my existence Sean Hannity. At first I was only aware of the content - what he was saying and not the way he was saying it. He used certain words deliberately and used his tone carefully to achieve a desired effect in his listeners. This effect is brainwashing. Conservatives speak to our primitive reptilian brains. The part of the brain that processes hunger, thirst and all manner of very basic survival instincts. It is also the part of the brain that responds to fear. MARK LEVIN was railing against the auto bailout or loan or whatever you feel like calling it. I personally think they should get it. Repupretards were tripping over one another to help out their banking buddies which never helped “Main Street” like it was supposed to but then they have a heart attack over an auto worker making $30 an hour.
(I know they say its $70 or something like that but thats misinformation. They came up with that number by adding up salaries and benefits of all workers, retired and still on the job, then divided that number by only the amount of current employees, leaving out the retirees that they added in to begin with. That sure is fuzzy math. No wonder they got a big number out of it. That number still pales in comparison to what their banking buddies make and they had no problem giving them a TRILLION dollars.)
They’re blaming the victim. Republicans hate the middle class and poor people. But again I digress. Leving is saying what you’ve heard every gas bag liberal say on TV lately. He began saying that the Dems are Stalinists and not in a figurative way. He was saying that Democrats believe in and will enforce old school Soviet Union policies! He says these things as if they are facts! He presents them as facts!!!! Not opinions!!! His retard callers ate it up. But what do you expect from people who think OBAMA IS A SECRET MUSLIM who isn’t a US CITIZEN? They filter their reality so only information they like gets processed. Like a race horse wearing blinders. I’m getting off topic again….
So Levin is spewing shit and his listeners are eating and enjoying said shit. Then a woman calls with an intelligent opinion. Granted she was a conservative but when someone has a smart opinion I have to give them credit. She agreed with Levin on every point except one. She tries to explain her opinion but Levin keeps yelling over her, actively trying not to hear anything he doesn’t believe. He dumps her call and proceeds to call her names like idiot and moron and so on. This is where the brain washing comes in. Levin has the show so he is an authority figure. This gives him the ability to spew garbage while still maintaining authority over the subject at hand. He yells his opinions. This appeals to the reptilian brain. For some reason Repubs think that if you can yell your opinion louder than the next guy it makes you right. He maintains a veneer of knowledge by intimidating those who challenge him. Then there’s the name calling. This serves to disqualify another’s opinion. If the caller is a moron then Mark Levin must be smart and ultimately right. And people eat this up. They listen to him passively and don’t realize that he is gaining your favor by trickery.
Liberals tend to talk to people like grownups. They don’t stick their fingers in their ears while shouting “La La LaLaLa La La LaLa, I can’t hear you!” like Repubretards. That’s just one reason I’m a liberal.
…And what’s with Mark Levin calling Obama Milhouse? I don’t get the reference. Is it a joke?
