Sun Tzu stated: "Know your enemy, know yourself, and you can fight 100 battles without disaster."

So today's lesson is on Liberal Groupthink.

What is Groupthink?

Groupthink is a term coined by social psychologist Irving Janis back in 1972 and it happens when a group makes poor or faulty decisions because of group pressures. This groupthink leads to a deterioration of moral judgement, sense of reality, and mental efficiency. In other words, everyday life for a liberal! Consider the recent debt debates in the House and Senate, with occasional drive-bys from the tyrant-in-chief on his way to the golf course and how they [Libs] refused to accept any alternatives to their need to tax and spend, spend, and spend! And how they bitched and moaned about the Tea Party, with Chief Dumbass Biden calling them "terrorists." THAT, my friends, is symptomatic of groupthink and how they [Libs] ignore any alternatives, follow irrational paths, and dehumanize other groups but that is how the Lib acts and thinks! We wonder how they can be so dorked up and stupid but it is because of groupthink, which libs must have a genetic need for, that leaves them dangerously insulated from outside opinions.

Janis documented eight symptoms of groupthink and they are:

1. Illusion of invulnerability: Creates excessive optimism that encourages taking extreme risks.

We can see this everyday when liberals (and some RINOs like Juan McShamnesty) take our money and throw it at problems, hoping so of it will stick. The public school system is the perfect example of this. If only we can throw more money at them (teacher’s pay for ex), schools will get better and kids will learn more. The immediate need is higher taxes to pay for it all! Of course, the sidebar benefit to the Left is more dues from the teacher’s unions and more contributions from teachers who are overwhelmingly liberal.

2. Collective rationalization: Members discount warnings and do not reconsider their assumptions.

Obama is the perfect example of number two. He actually ran around shooting off his suckhole during the ObamaKare debates saying that massive amounts of Americans wanted this sh*t when clearly, 76% of Americans were AGAINST IT! Liberals in Congress and the Senate were warned about the backlash of cramming things down the throats of Americans, yet they did it anyway, and the Tea Party sprang up almost overnight. Currently, we have Moody’s and S&P saying that they are going to downgrade our credit rating, yet liberals STILL want to run that debt up and indeed, Obama now has 2 trillion MORE to spend through the rest of his regime.

In yet another example, a whopping majority of Americans want to drill for oil, mine for coal, and develop other resources, noting that America has MORE OIL than all of Saudi Arabia and that American oil will free us from foreign dependence and the billions we send to Saudi Arabia that are used to fund terrorism, radical Islam in mosques, radical Islam schools in America, wahabism being taught in US schools, etc. But what do the watermelons (green on the outside and RED on the inside) in the Left do? Fight against every aspect of what the huge majority of Americans want. They fight against a strong America and common sense actions.

3. Belief in inherent morality: Members believe in the rightness of their cause and therefore ignore the ethical or moral consequences of their decisions.

Simply talk to one watermelon (see above) that works for the Sierra Club, Sea Shepards, Greenpeace, etc., (if you can stand it) and listen their drivel on how humans must die, the earth must be protected, etc, etc, ad nauseum. Or better yet, Obama’s buddy William Ayers, the unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist, once discussed murdering 25 MILLION Americans in order to bring about their communist utopia. They were right (in their fetid little minds) and nothing could dissuade them.

4. Stereotyped views of out-groups: Negative views of “enemy” make effective responses to conflict seem unnecessary.

There are so many examples from the Liberals to choose from here, that the Gunny was swamped. Take, for example, white males in the military coming back from Iraq or Afghanistan. The head idiot of DHS, Janet Incompetano, actually issued a report calling us "possible domestic terrorists." Maybe she missed out on the report about Muslims like Major Hasan (still not on trial) or the newest clown who tried to hit Fort Hood, or the Fort Dix Six. Or better yet, the Tea Party and the members therein, who are insulted by the tyrant in the White House on down, including the Lapdog Liberal Media, with sexual slurs, racial slurs, and outright lies. How many times as King Putz told his drones to: "bring a gun to a knife fight," "punch back harder," "boot on the neck of execs, BP, BofA," etc? This serves to dehumanize his opponents, probably something he learned from his commie mentor Frank Marshall Davis or William Ayers. Just review all of his yappins on evil CEOs, Wall St, banks, etc.

5. Direct pressure on dissenters: Members are under pressure not to express arguments against any of the group’s views.

Obama tells the Republicans to shut up because he won. Obama tells the Republicans to sit in the back of the bus. Owl Gore calls any dissenters for gloBULL warming/cooling/climate change idiots, kooks, liars, frauds, etc., all the while the Left has concocted a hoax and covered it up with lies ala East Anglia University emails. In fact, the clown who actually wrote a report that polar bears were drowning in the Arctic Ocean, (to support the arctic ice melting lie) was recently booted for integrity issues. DUH! EVERY liberal has integrity issues. BTW, polar bears can swim about 60 MILES without a rest.

6. Self-censorship: Doubts and deviations from the perceived group consensus are not expressed.

Just take one look at the High Priest of the gloBULL warming/cooling/climate change fraud, Owl Gore, who attacked anyone who dissented from the consensus that the Earth was gonna fry, oceans were gonna rise, tsunamis, hurricanes, typhoons, and we were all gonna die. It was pure crap and those of us with a working brain knew it but unfortunately, morons in the UN still believe it, Obama believes it, and we’re gonna keep throwing away money on it.

7. Illusion of unanimity – The majority view and judgments are assumed to be unanimous.

The Stimulus bill was gonna cure all of the ills of the Bush Recession and the petty tyrant SWORE that it HAD to be done NOW lest America collapse and bad things will happen, he inherited the mess, woe is me, blah, blah, blah. The consensus was in on the Stimulus Bill like it was in on ObamaKAre like it was in on gloBULL warming/cooling/climate change, etc. You see, liberals ALWAYS know what is good for us. Another good example is gun control. The consensus is in for Libs on this, guns simply kill people, it is what they do. Liberal politicians and the Lapdog Media assume that their views on this is what is best for America, heedless of the crime rates in cities where Liberals are in charge (see #2 on ignoring warnings, etc) Finally, the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell," is another excellent example of how liberals think they know best. Obama signed it away with the stroke of his Marxist pen, with no studies in yet, and no information on how those on active duty would react in as well. Then, Secretary of Defense Gates, an Obama asskisser, stated that NO ONE active duty would be released early for this violation of their contract. (Guess the majority view in the service wasn’t so good)

One more point on this: Slimy Greaseball Chuck U Schumer just bleated that since we've got the deficit under control, it is time to focus on jobs. In other words, back to spending again and THAT is what Americans want.

8. Self-appointed ‘mindguards’: Members protect the group and the leader from information that is problematic or contradictory to the group’s cohesiveness, view, and/or decisions.

Think Rahm Emanuel or David Axlerod or the Lapdog Liberal Media or the GloBULL Warming clowns. They are the gatekeepers for the tyrant and other liberal "leaders" or hoaxers like Owl Gore. Cults operate in much the same manner.

So in conclusion, it pays to know your enemy BEFORE we engage them in battle. You HAVE to know how the liberal thinks (if you can call it that) in order to know how to combat their lies, myths, and other bullsqueeze.  Remember, try to convert those you can, who likely can still think for themselves, but hardcore libs, forget it, don't waste your valuable time. 


  1. You evil, uncompromising, right wing, extremist, terrorist hobbit!

  2. Gunny,
    Good post and all your points are spot on.

    In my experience, it is indeed true that we can engage and sometimes convert a demmerhoid, since not all dims are liberal deep down inside, but dyed-in-the-wool libs are a waste of time.

  3. Craw,

    Yeah, I'm a terrorist. Just ask Gaffes O'Biden!

    I could not be prouder than I am, standing against this corrupt regime and the scumbags running it.

  4. Damn,
    My Rep. (Granger, TX-12) supported the bill.
    My Senator (Cornyn) supported the bill.
    My other Senator (Hutchison) said last week that a bad deal is worse than no deal (http://hutchison.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=722) but she voted for it.

  5. Yep,

    My Rep supported it and both Lib senators (Begich and Murkowski RINO/LIB) did as well.

    Evidently, Nov 2 2010 was ignored by the GOP.

    As Bugs Bunny would say: "You know this means war, don't you?"

  6. Interesting POV. Of course,the ASSHOLES who "represent" this part of Michiruit ALL voted FOR the piece of canid feces. Too bad so damn many of the "opposition" agree with the armed robbers of the other party,led by the BIGGEST thief of all,the BECS.

  7. Think on this if you weaken our systems enough that people start rioting in the streets for not getting "their" welfare,SS, or food stamps. Why not call in some extra "peacekeepers" (UN) to help out, once things are back under control why not let em stay and be the new communist I mean Republican guard? Think the best but be prepared for the worst.

    "I will gladly go to war with my government to save my country"-me

    Oh yes almost forgot craw when you come begging one of us gun toting true American patriots for security when it happens, just remember who the terrorists were. Because I would ask who you last voted for.

  8. The New American Rev:

    Whoa brother, cease fire. Crawfish is a staunch patriot and was being sarcastic! He was imitating clowns like Dingy Reid and Gaffes Biden.

    As far as your post goes, that will be Obama's Reichstag moment, which he and Soros have been working for!

  9. Well gunny, I guess it's time to go clean my weapons and get into formation.

  10. Dong_Ha 68,

    Brother, I hear ya. It is depressing to realize that we got sold out AGAIN by our supposed "Reps" in DC. I firmly believe that if we do not clean house (Cong/Sen) in 2012, and get rid of that corrupt b*stard Obama, we are in for some serious trouble.

    This Depression AIN'T gonna be like the last one, with Americans working together, etc. THIS one is gonna get ugly.

    Which is what Obama, Soros, and the Prog/Stats (Progressive Statists) want.

  11. Craw
    I apologize for my earlier statement my brain is stuck in stupid today(and most others).

  12. NAR,

    No sweat, Craw has made me do a double take on more than occasion.

  13. Gunny,

    No one picked up on your comparison of Obama to number 2. I almost spit beer on my monitor.

    Then things got serious. At some point you have to quit praying for peace and start praying for total destruction of your enemies. I doubt any libs know how to do that, even killers like Ayers. But we know how to do it. We have to be careful we don't win too quick like we did in '91, or we'll have to do it all over again too soon.

  14. I got one comment...uh...quote:

  15. TGP,

    I truly hope that we can peacefully resolve our differences in this nation, once the 60's leftists die off. THEY are the ones poisoning the system.

    The Left WANTS a Reichstag moment so that they can crack down. They need it. I do not want to give it to them but if they start it, then we should definately finish it, as Jefferson would have wanted it.
