This brings me to the reason for this post. As I was watching the evening shows on Fox News, I was wondering how can we better communicate our message to the masses. As a contributor to The Trump Times and Trump Times International, it's my job to openly share the truth of the subjects in the news today. However, while talking with my husband, he pointed out a few things he believes myself and other conservatives are doing wrong.
As Patriots and Proud Deplorables, we are always trying to convince people of the evils of the Liberal Agenda. Now, don't get me wrong because that's a good thing. However, we need to rethink how we do it. We write posts on social media, create memes, and share everything we can find to let people know what we believe. We watch our favorite pundits such as Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, and Judge Jeanine Pirro to name a few as they explain their opinions on the events of the day. While I'm not saying they aren't good at what they do, I often feel at times they miss the mark when reaching out to those not firmly in the conservative camp.
Whenever the subject of illegal immigration comes up, both sides brace themselves for battle. The problem we run into as Conservatives are the Democrats are masters at pulling at the heartstrings. They talk about all the poor people coming to the USA for a better life and how they are escaping a dangerous country. Every time I hear a Liberal waxing poetic about the poor "undocumented" immigrants, I nearly lose my mind.
However, it doesn't stop there. Healthcare, welfare, rights for this group or that, the Democrats have a readily prepared script to pull at the heartstrings of those who do not understand the facts as they see them. The Democrats are sent out with their talking points well rehearsed to do battle against the heartless and down-right mean Conservatives.
We need to take some ideas of communication from their playbook. We need to have OUR talking points. We need a counter-argument to each and every one of their lies. Okay, I'm just gonna say it: we need to use their tactics against them.
- Why do some get to break the rules and get rewarded?
- Why do "Dreamers" get special treatment when it comes to higher education?
- Why is it fair to give jobs to those here illegally before a citizen or legal immigrant?
Whenever a Democrat says illegals will do the work no one else will, we need to compare this statement to modern-day slavery.
What they're actually saying is:
- We need people who are willing to pick our produce. Huh, like the slaves picked cotton?
- We need people willing to mow our grass or clean our house. Huh, you're saying they are only useful as servants?
- They aren't taking jobs from regular Americans. Huh, so what about the construction worker, or those who worked in our manufacturing plants? I can go on if you'd like.
- Building the wall is stupid. It won't stop them coming here. Really? Do you lock your door? Do you have a fence around your backyard? Would you be okay with ANYONE coming into YOUR house uninvited?
- There aren't bad people coming here. They are just good people wanting a better life. Okay, what about all the gang members coming across the border? What about those who are repeat offenders?

As Conservatives, we need to turn the conversation around on them. We can no longer allow their lies to stand as truth because there are too many people who do not take the time to educate themselves. They watch the different news outlets and take their words as gospel. They also get their facts from Facebook and Twitter. How many of us have fallen for a fake article or meme? Heck, if you're someone who isn't up on the political facts, what chance do you have?
So, my fellow Patriots and Deplorables, I challenge you to go forth armed with a comeback for the ridiculous claims made by those on the Left. We MUST use their methods against them. Saying illegal immigration is against the law doesn't phase those not paying attention to what's going on in the USA. We need to put it in terms the average American will understand.
While Democrats are trying to baffle us with bullshit, we need to confuse them with facts with a touch of their 'fairness' card. So, go forth, my fellow Patriots and Deplorable and spread the truth and teach the magic of Trumpism.
God Bless the USA
