In watching the process leading up to the health care vote this weekend, one has to wonder if the Democrats have been channeling Dr. Goebbels from the grave to help them with their attempt to get this legislation passed and frankly to govern this country.  Joseph Goebbels stated: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”Picture of Joseph Goebbels

Key in the Democrats approach has been hiding the ball, keeping the American people from what is actually in the health care bill.  According to Dr. Goebbels, “the lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.” Hence, this could explain why the full language of the legislation on health care reform has not been provided by the government. It may also explain why President Obama and Speaker Pelosi have plainly stated that “we will all know what’s in the bill once it has passed.”

Dr. Goebbels further states: “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” As we have clearly seen during the 2008 election and the first year and two month of Mr. Obama’s Presidency, the press has played its part of keyboard very well, with the exception of Fox News. This leads to another key point that the Democrats have taken from Goebbels’ playbook: “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” Through the President’s personal propaganda wing, Organizing for America (formally Organizing for Obama) is astroturfing (faking grassroots support). His group’s website is instructing his minions to write letters to the editor, even giving them the words to use, but tells them not to use them verbatim. Unfortunately for Organizing America, the minions are not smart enough to change the words around and about 72 newspapers have verbatim quotes from the group’s website examples!

The bottom line here is that the Propaganda wing is not doing a good job for the Democrats or the President because they are not making it easy enough for their mindless minions to help perpetuate the lies for them.

The  Democrats have hit home on another one of Goebbels key principles: “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” This strategy was clearly used by President Obama in his recent interview with Brett Baier. No matter the question asked, the President did his best to stick to his few points and repeat them over and over again. The same is true for Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Reid, and pretty much every other pro reform democrat that takes to the airwaves.  This worked for a while, but unlike the Germans prior to World War II, enough Americans are still awake enough to realize that something is just not right with this bunch! Regrettably, there are still vast numbers of our countrymen who have not woken up from the Kool-Aid induced coma of Blind Obama Support.  For them all we can do is try to dumb down our message enough so that they finally get it!

Dr. Goebbels once said ” “We have made the Reich by propaganda.” I wonder  if that is not the thoughts going through many of the minds of Democrats’  when it comes to Health Care Reform and this President?
