You GO, Thunder!But when something is a fact, that means it's not a cliché. A cliché would be saying all Middle Eastern immigrants want to do is r*pe people. A fact would be that 92 percent of severe sexual assaults in Sweden are committed by Middle Eastern immigrants. That's astonishing. But let's not talk about that. Let's accuse anyone who wants to even bring it up for discussion a racist. That reminds me of a list someone posted here recently about disinfo. Let's see, what was that rule again? Oh yeah ...
1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it
I am not the one dismissing facts here.
There you go again ... multiple infractions there.
4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent's argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.
5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary 'attack the messenger' ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as 'kooks', 'right-wing', 'liberal', 'left-wing', 'terrorists', 'conspiracy buffs', 'radicals', 'militia', 'racists', 'religious fanatics', 'sexual deviates', and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.
12. Enigmas have no solution. Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the crime and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to lose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.
