The Lincoln Project, who is backed by failed Republican strategists, called “Never Trumpers” and their allies a handful of foreign lobbyists upset about President Donald J. Trump’s “America First” policies and agenda, have resorted to tactics similar to the Chinese Communist Party of dragging their opponents out to the Public Square to harass and shame people and their families, with their recent move.
Creating a strawman, by which to gaslight the American voting public, the Lincoln Project created an ad campaign with an accompanying billboard in Times Square, in New York City their hometown, that attempts to discredit the son in law and daughter of the President of the United States, 10 days before the Presidential election. It is an obvious tactic to shame and humiliate Ivanka and Jared for their association to the President.
What do Ivanka and Jared have to do with Trump’s Covid 19 Response? That is the corruption- they have nothing to do with it.
The couple are considering a lawsuit.
Their lawyer, Mark Kasowitz, described the billboards in a letter:
“Those ads show Ms. Trump smiling and gesturing toward a death count of Americans and New Yorkers, and attribute to Mr. Kushner the statement that “[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that’s their problem.”
“Of course, Mr. Kushner never made any such statement, [and] Ms. Trump never made any such gesture,” Kasowitz wrote. He called the billboards “outrageous and shameful libel.”
“If these billboards are not immediately removed, we will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages,” Kasowitz wrote.
The Lincoln Project posted on their Twitter timeline :
The Lincoln Projects tactics are very similar to how the Chinese Communist Party applied tactics during what is known as the “Century of Humiliation”.
BILLBOARD AD REJECTED FOR BEING TOO POLITICAL
An Activist name Stephanie D’Urso, who has a page to support President Trump called MagaHearts.com, had ironically attempted to run on a billboard in Times Sq a few weeks ago, as a get well wishes for President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump when they were diagnosed with COVID 19, and her content was rejected.
Her story ran in the Daily Caller:
“A “get well soon” digital billboard message aimed at President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump was denied in New York City, according to Human Events. Lamar Advertising, the group that manages the billboard, reportedly denied the submission for being a “political ad,” D’Urso told Daily Caller.
I reached out to D’Urso to get a reaction about the Ivanka and Jared Billboard, and she told me:
“As a mother of 6 children, I was dismayed that they are facing a world where get well messages sent to an ill American President and First Lady would be censored and denied. I would hope that we have a future in our country where you can make a gesture of prayers and kindness, purely out of the goodness of your own heart, without it being censored by those who are filled with hate. It shocks and saddens me that hateful messages targeting Ivanka Trump can be approved and aired by billboards in NYC, but the Magahearts.com messages of love, light and prayers to our President and First Lady are not allowed. I would say to the billboard companies and to the country, for that matter, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” D’Urso said quoting Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
PUBLIC HUILATION AND THE LEFT IN POLITICS:
Even the now far-left propaganda magazine, The Atlantic once knew the dangers of applying the tactics of the Mao regime to truth-seeking individuals.
“These events comprised the First Opium War, a defeat which began an era known in China as the “century of humiliation.” And only when Chairman Mao Zedong stood atop Beijing’s Gate of Heavenly Peace on October 1, 1949 and proclaimed the founding of the People’s Republic of China did this “century”—which actually lasted 109 years—come to an end.
Since then, the “century of humiliation” has been a central part of the P.R.C.’s founding mythology, of which the short version is this: Long the world’s pre-eminent civilization, China fell behind the superior technology of the West over the centuries, an imbalance that finally came to a head with the loss in the Opium Wars. This begun the most tumultuous century in the country’s—or any country’s—history, one that featured an incessant series of wars, occupations, and revolutions and one that did not end until the victory of the Communist Party in China’s 1945-49 civil war.”
The Atlantic has apparently adopted and embraced the techniques of propaganda for the 2020 Presidental election, posting numerous baseless stories meant only to hurt Trump, but in 2013 they understood the corrupt tactic were not good.
According to WIKI, the techniques of public humiliation were making a come back in the 1990s’ They reported:
“Public humiliation or public shaming is a form of punishment whose main feature is dishonoring or disgracing a person, usually an offender or a prisoner, especially in a public place. It was regularly used as a form of judicially sanctioned punishment in previous centuries and is still practiced by different means in the modern era.
In the United States, it was a common punishment from the beginning of European colonization through the 19th century. It fell out of common use in the 20th century, though it has seen a revival starting in the 1990s.”
Shaming supporters and family members of Trump is a dirty tactic, and people should call them out.
