Don’t be demoralized. Gain strength from their fear of you.

We are in the middle of another Operation Demoralize. It happens every national election. This time it’s early, only June.

The media swarms and lies. Tells you it’s over, wants you to give up. Happens every single time.

On Monday, November 7, 2016, I wrote, Operation Demoralize Is in Full Swing:

Overall, [Hillary’s] up about 3% in national polls. You can’t ignore that. I’d rather be up 3 than down 3 any day….

But to read the headlines, it’s over. Trump is done. Turn out the lights, write the obituaries, the election is history.

This is the same tactic always used. Here is what I wrote in 2012, Operation Demoralize is working just as planned:

It’s November 7.  Barack Obama has won.  The Republican presidential strategy has failed.  The media is jubilant.  The right-blogosphere is going through a serious introspection.  The left-blogosphere is dancing on our graves and shoving it down our throats.  Four years of fighting the Obama agenda was for nothing.

Oh, I’m sorry.  Let me correct that.  It’s September 9, not November 7.  The rest of the paragraph above can remain as originally written.

Operation Demoralize is working just as planned.

While Obama did go on to win, the media narrative that the race was over in early September was a self-fulfilling narrative.

I think Hillary is the favorite going into Election Day because the electoral map favors Democrats. But don’t think that the premature celebrations are honest or legitimate – they are just narratives intended to demoralize Trump voters.

The rest, as they say, was history.

Some words of wisdom from Melissa Chen on Twitter:

Feeling exhausted & demoralized?

They want you to think you’re all alone, swimming against the tide. You’re not.


That’s the goal – to break your will, to train your attention on the inane and frivolous, to siphon it away from issues of existential gravity, of global import.

Reminiscent of this:

The spines of thousands are being strengthened, by hearing of your fight.

You are NOT ALONE.

Before tonight, I never heard of you. If you had equivocated prior to this point, you would have still been destroyed by the people who want you to pander to them; and you would have dissolved into obscurity.

But, you fought for righteousness. The rule of law, the Constitution and Bill of Rights. For the Ethos of Dr Martin L King, … you fight for Content of Character.

You stood, seemingly alone, in the breach.

But you are not alone. We are with you.

I am with you – Fangs Out and Full Speed, I am coming; and with you even now.

Don’t be demoralized. Gain strength from their fear of you.
