Fox News Viewers have Underdeveloped Intellect. One of the brainwashing tactics used is Panic Mongering. This goes one step beyond simple fear mongering. With panic mongering, there is never a break from the fear. The idea is to terrify and terrorize the audience during every waking moment. From Muslims to swine flu to recession to homosexuals to immigrants to the rapture itself, the belief over at Fox seems to be that if your fight-or-flight reflexes aren't activated, you aren't alive. This of course raises the question: why terrorize your own audience? Because it is the fastest way to bypasses the rational brain for the purpose of inserting propaganda. In other words, when people are afraid, they don't think rationally. And when they can't think rationally, they'll believe anything and tend to repeat and spread the misinformation without questioning it's validity.
Kinda like the Newtown shooter used an assault weapon panic mongering?
Oblamer cashed in on that lie before reality replaced the fear every other liberal news outlet plastered on a 24-7 loop.

Another tactic Fox News uses to brainwash viewers with underdeveloped intellect is Character Assassination/Ad Hominem. Fox does not like to waste time debating the idea. Instead, they prefer a quicker route to dispensing with their opponents: go after the person's credibility, motives, intelligence, character, or, if necessary, sanity. No category of character assassination is off the table and no offense is beneath them. Fox and like-minded media figures also use ad hominem attacks not just against individuals, but entire categories of people in an effort to discredit the ideas of every person who is seen to fall into that category, e.g. "liberals," "hippies," "progressives," "blacks," "gays" etc. This form of argument - if it can be called that - leaves no room for genuine debate over ideas, so by definition, it is undemocratic. Not to mention just plain crass.

Are you a glutton for punishment? You HAVE to be at least smart enough to know that people will come back at you with so many of the democrats posturing and blaming and way out there criticisms of Conservatives. Have you ever heard Pelosi or Waters or Biden or Reid or Frank or Obama or Axelrod or Geithner or Emanual or Wasserman or Cummo speak? No? Really? Oh, that's right, you little moron monsters can only speak of things you are told to believe. Never let a good crisis go to waste and never let the truth get in the way of spewing your shit.
Don't you get tired or embarrassed at getting beat down on the issues all the time? Did all the porn sites block you? Are you bored? No friends? Why would you come back day after day after day just to get your ass handed to you over and over and over again? Are you retarded? Does your caregiver know you are on the computer?
I won't make fun of you like most people probably do but your ignorance is getting out of hand. It's not funny. It's rather sad.

Fox News & Republicans on Topix use this weapon of choice when their side of an argument is weak. It is Projection/Flipping. This one is frustrating for the viewer who is trying to actually follow the argument. It involves taking whatever underhanded tactic you're using and then accusing your opponent of doing it to you first. We see this frequently in the immigration discussion, where anti-racists are accused of racism, or in the climate change debate, where those who argue for human causes of the phenomenon are accused of not having science or facts on their side. Right-wing extremists online will often call a white person who is arguing against racism a black person or negro in a pathetic attempt to discredit them. When a person disagrees with an irrational republican online, the person is automatically called names such as ObamaLover, Kenyan, Muslim, or other name without even knowing your party affiliation, race, religion or any facts other than the fact that you disagree with them, but calling you names of things they don't like comforts them and makes them feel as if they've won the debate.

Conservative Republicans & Fox Propagandists love the Rewriting of History. This is another way of saying that propagandists make the facts fit their worldview. The Downing Street Memos on the Iraq war were a classic example of this on a massive scale, but it happens daily and over smaller issues as well. A recent case in point is Palin's mangling of the Paul Revere ride, which Fox reporters have bent over backward to try to validate her misinfornation. Why lie about the historical facts, even when they can be demonstrated to be false? Well, because dogmatic minds actually find it easier to reject reality than to update their viewpoints. They will literally rewrite history if it serves their interests. And they'll often speak with such authority that the casual viewer will be tempted to question what they knew as fact. Since viewers of Fox news are often under-educated or in a brainwashed trance like state, the rewritten history becomes true to them.

Bullying. This is a favorite technique of several Fox commentators. That it continues to be employed demonstrates that it seems to have some efficacy. Bullying and yelling works best on people who come to the conversation with a lack of confidence, either in themselves or their grasp of the subject being discussed. The bully exploits this lack of confidence by berating the guest into submission or compliance. Often, less self-possessed people will feel shame and anxiety when being berated and the quickest way to end the immediate discomfort is to cede authority to the bully. The bully is then able to interpret that as a "win."

No brad... That is what we call " Reporting Facts about current events by Journalists " Sean Hannity's education stopped at the high school level. He is not a journalist, has no college degree and does not report facts or news, he's just a guy who gets paid to lie for Fox to weak minded followers.

With not enough grasp of the subject ... Just a lot of Deja Moo ... you know repetitive bs.
It's not bullying, it's just repeating truth and facts. Republicans are often slower so we have to repeat the truth again and again to give those with underdeveloped intellect a chance to catch up to the rest of us.

Democrats Want you to REGISTER ALL GUNS!
They learned from Hitler!
Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office confirmed that she will be introducing in the Senate Thursday a new version of the so-called assault weapon ban. A spokesman said the full text will be released at a press conference on Thursday.

The California Democrat intends to expand on the ban that expired in 2004, by including handguns and shotguns, in addition to rifles. She would decrease from two to one the number of cosmetic features on a gun to have it be considered an “assault weapon.” This means that if a gun has just one item like a pistol grip or bayonet lug, then it is illegal. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the same ban in New York last week.

Furthermore, instead of grandfathering in current firearms, she would create a national gun registry for the government to track lawful gun owners. Magazines would again be limited to 10 rounds.

The Clinton-era bill was not renewed by Congress after the Federal Bureau of Investigation and law enforcement agencies reported that it was ineffective in reducing crime.

President Obama said that a top priority is to get “an assault weapons ban that is meaningful” passed this year.

A summary of Mrs. Feinstein’s legislation is below.

Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of: 120 specifically-named firearms; certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics; and semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.

Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by: Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test; eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test; and banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans.

Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.

Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by: Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment; exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.

Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include: Background check of owner and any transferee; type and serial number of the firearm; positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint; certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration.
