The run up to November 8th for the Democrat Party is going to open a Pandora’s box of David Axelrod-like, psycho-babble. First we must look at one of the very first psycho-babble political actresses: Monique Corzilius, who had a brief acting/modeling career. She can remember the lines from Kool-aide, Kool-pops commercials from about 1965: “mm-hmmm. Freezy-Squeezy sacks of frosty fruit fun.”
Perverts only had to get tied to the “system” of Talent Agencies in the 1950’s and 60’s to have their protection. But in Monique’s case, her first commercial and the picnic that followed, is more or less a blur in her memory. Not until the year 2000 was she made aware that she was Lyndon Johnson’s “Daisy Girl” who was taught by her mother to miscount to ten for the commercial.
Kenneth Burke dropped out of Columbia and ended up in Greenwich Village. He became a playwright and a Marxist theoretician. Psychology figures prominently into communism because of its promise to control the population.
Burke described the social and political rhetorical analysis as dramatism in analyzing human relationships. It sets up 5 dramatistic pentad strategies for viewing life. The pentad is an instrument used as relational or functional principles to help us understand what he calls the cycle cluster of terms people use to attribute motive.
This pentad is a dissolution to drama – it is parallel to Aristotle’s four causes and has similar correlation to journalist catch-isms: who, what where, when, why and how.
The Democrats in 1964 used Marxist ideologues to craft their political T.V. commercials; a new media. The little girl counting the daisy petals in the field, the camera focused into her pupil, eventually blacking it out, as a countdown from 10 reaches zero – the blackness becomes a thunderous, nuclear explosion in a combination detonation-mushroom cloud-incandescence, from three different tests.
Lyndon Johnson does a voice over in the Daisy commercial:
“These are the stakes. To make a world in which all of God’s children can live or go into the dark. We must either love each other or we must die.” (Dig up Valenti to ask him where Johnson got this line.)
Then a familiar voice, sportscaster – Chris Schenkel reads the printed words on the screen: “Vote for Johnson November 3rd – the stakes are too high for you to stay home.”
LBJ threw away America’s blood in Vietnam, preventing them from winning the war so he and his cronies could make a profit. This same man had a psychiatrist because, in his last days, he was becoming fearful of meeting his maker.
LBJ spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to get a special shower in the White House; and the job was never just right, so the rip outs and rebuilds caused the lead plumber of the project to have a nervous breakdown. All this so LBJ could spray a nozzle on what he called “big jumbo.”
Johnson would even test the shower in front of his aides and staff. (Perhaps we could confirm that with Jack Valenti – who, at the time, was a Special Assistant to President Johnson. Jack later went on to become the long-time President of the Motion Picture Association of America.)
After working in the advertising department for Humble Oil and taking Texaco Gas Stations from 5th to 1st through an effective advertising campaign (Cleanest Restrooms) Valenti entered into political consulting after a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson in 1956.
In 1960 the firm of Weekly and Valenti assisted the Kennedy-Johnson Presidential Campaign.
1964: The Daisy Commercial was a partnership. Doyle Dane Bernbach Advertising Agency hired Sound Designer and Media Consultant: Tony Schwartz, Art Director: Sid Myers, Producer: Aaron Ehrlich, Senior Copywriter: Stan Lee and Junior Copywriter: Eugene Lawrence Case.
Schwartz brought the concept of the child leading into a launchpad countdown with the nuclear explosion. Two years prior, he had worked for the United Nations and used this concept in an anti-nuclear Public Service Announcement (PSA).
Case, a member of the Quill and Dagger Society at Cornell University, became a busy man for Lyndon Johnson. He wrote copy for a Johnson commercial in which a man speaks into the camera for 4 minutes relating his fear as a Republican that Barry Goldwater would be elected.
Looking back over more than half a century we can see psychological fear mongering has been a trusted tool for the Progressive Democrats who have no genuine concern for humanity.
When Janet Reno, the former boss of Hillary’s brother in South Florida, who through their positions in the court system, met many Haitian criminals trying a new life in Florida. When the original government overreach came down on the Waco compound of a breakaway 7th Day Adventist group, it was “for the children.”
In actuality, the ATF was there to defraud Americans of the 2nd Amendment through a crackdown on well-armed Christian Fundamentalists who had a “legal” arms trading business.
Two years’ later, a suspicious bombing in Oklahoma City was again used to incite the nation against purported right-wing extremists, such as Rush Limbaugh.
Honor, heart, mind, spirit and love of America have arrived to counter the psychological operations which nearly destroyed us.
