President Trump has issued temporary immigration orders that ban citizens from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. This is a good opportunity to test the Persuasion Filter against what you might call the Hitler Filter. For new readers of this blog, my starting point is the understanding that human brains did not evolve to show us reality. We aren’t that smart. Instead, our brains create little movies in our heads, and yours can be completely different from mine. We see that situation now. Half the country thinks President Trump is well on his way to becoming a Hitler-like...

Great reason to not think critically & look for reality & facts.
Using the facts to point out the hypocrisy of the stupid.
That's the fun part.

Are you experienced?

Ok now I remember reading this a while back in that it all boils down to hypnotic suggestion.

I find it ironic that those who believe Trump is Hitler ALSO want to ban anyone from having weapons to fight back against the Hitler.

Their logic seems to be "were gonna scream and shout against the guy whos gonna have the military and police kill us and lock us up in concentration camps".

Seems like an effective strategy.

OK I listened to about an hour of it.

Basically it is about marketing. Hillary had a reputation as liar if nothing else because her husband was a proven to be a liar.The marketing image never went away.

The other aspect of Trump is that he is always negotiating so he makes an outrageous statement as a test balloon. Which outrages his opponents and makes his supporters happy. As the negotiation proceeds he renegotiates the outrageous number down which placates his opponents and still satisfies his supporters.
