In tribalism one political faction tries to vilify the other as means of controlling the mainstream public opinion as well as influenct the decisions of judges and jury. The end goal of the think tank that promotes or weaponizes tribalism is:
- Increasing control over government decisions
- Winning elections and overtaking government positions and government contracts
- Racketeering political opponents through entrapment or fear
- Controlling academia and the means of indoctrination
- Justifying the scale and the form of international or civil conflicts
- Generating ad income and income from selling analysis of information to businesses and intelligence community
People who carry out the expansion of tribalism are not necessarily aware that they are tokens of these think tanks. They might be passionate and have mob thinking or they are already indoctrinated through education or the use of repetitiveness of the narratives, Repetitiveness and the use of the same phrases or slogans that are used in various outlets are more effective in the indoctrination process. The timing of a smear story release can be spontaneous as a result of mob thinking or orchestrated maliciously. Usually WaPo, CNN and NYT incept the daily slogan or agenda alongside politicians or leakers, and other small outlets and trolls follow suit. Such as:
- Hilly Billy
- Quid Pro Quo
- The Walls are Closing
Using a slogan might be a way of projecting their malfeasance or covering it up for their party.
In the U.S.A Tribalism includes the use of cable news, pollsters, indoctrination in public schools, academia and the use of intelligence community assets as well social media and congress. It is also used in “peaceful” demonstrations when agitators, journalists and provocateurs try to portray that the masses oppose their political opponents by trying to demean their opponents ideas in the protest. The vilifying process can be done without expressing it explicitly as one can interpret the gestures of the speaker when she tore up the State of the Union speech or the face gestures of #TakeResponsibilty actors. The message that some may take from these gestures is that they are supposedly fighting hate by depicting a political party as the hate party.
Vilifying through gestures and slogans is very contagious and effective in indoctrinating people who are already partially indoctrinated or passionate or was given a story taken out of context. Inflating an out of context story might result in a crime, libel and can be done by political DAs. An extremist interpretation of out of context event is dangerous becuase every link in a chain of propagation is adding some incitement to enhance the narrative and the vilifying process. Such was the case of the Covington Kids defamation and Jessy Smollett story where some journalists wanted to vilify an entire political party through a fabricated story or taking out of context the facts. One of ways to promote tribalism and cover up fake news is to blame the others for conspiracy theory.
The idea of the indoctrination is to propagate and make contagions the need to outcast or harm the livelihood or dignity of political opponents as can be shown in Antifa videos or other documents. This is the way that “noisy” people can nullify the beliefs and needs of the silent majority. Such is the movement of “Defund the Police”. Most people probably don’t want the chaos that would exist without a police as opposed to the minority who wants to change government through chaos. The underline message of the the political think tank that weponizes the “Defund the Police” slogan, is that the police supposedly is acting on behalf of a systemic racism that supposedly exists because of the Republican party and not of the Democratic party.
This is why one party tries everything in order to stop rallies or public symmetrical exchange of ideas of the other party, That includes planting provocateurs in rallies and planting or weaponizing non “political correct” comments in other publications. This technique was used by NBC or Google shadowbanners to demean or demonetize another their political opponents. This is one of the reasons Kamala Harris ex staffer and other biased people control what is shown in social media and search engine top positions. The political fabric of the people who decide what to demote and what to promote in search results, social media and Washington Post doesn’t represent the political fabric of the American people, rather the political needs of the Democrat party.
One of the end means of tribalism is to ashame political rivals and make them afraid of losing jobs, promotions, income and social status. In some cases tribalism promoters call GOP members “Cult”, “White Suppremasist”, “Hilly Billy”, “Deplorable” or “Racist” on national TV which Twitter, CNN and others don’t eagerly ban. Thus Twitter is not a social media platform, rather a publisher and a conduit of tribalism.
