From the Daily Kos—written by Hunter:
“Republican talking-points polisher and message tester Frank Luntz conducted a focus group of Trump supporters. Let’s take a peek.
“I used to sleep on my front porch with the door wide open, and now everyone has deadbolts,” one man said. “I believe the best days of the country are behind us.”
Under Donald Trump, everyone will be able to sleep outside again. Not just on porches, but under bridges, on park benches—it will usher in a new golden age of street camping.
“We know his goal is to make America great again,” a woman said. “It’s on his hat. And we see it every time it’s on TV. Everything that he’s doing, there’s no doubt why he’s doing it: it’s to make America great again.”
“It’s on his hat.”
I’d like to pause here a moment to mourn the untimely passing of the last conservative neuron. Date of death: August 2015. You will be missed, brave little neuron. May you find peace in the next life.
The crowd in the room was angriest about national security. Nearly all of them, it appeared, had an unshakeable feeling that the U.S. border was porous as a sieve and that the very things that once defined the nation: army, border and national pride—were fading.
So there you go. Donald Trump is top banana among the exact sort of people who believe in Jade Helm border conspiracies.
As for Luntz, he professes to be shaken by the experience, not because he was just locked in a room with twenty of America’s dumbest citizens, people who don’t trust government and get their relevant political information from reading hats, Luntz says, but because his party needs to understand that “the grassroots have abandoned them.” This may have to do with the constant barrage of conspiracy theories and false narratives peddled by Luntz’s other client, Fox News, or it may just be that none of those other presidential contenders have been savvy enough to wear their slogans on their actual clothes.”
