Civilization in Crisis
Report by Betty Sakai
On May 7th to a gathering of about 300 people, Whittle presented in an entertaining, fast-paced, informative way, how to communicate with those who say they are liberal.
Very seldom does one encounter such an effective communicator as Bill Whittle. Spicing his talk with in-depth knowledge of pop-culture, he discussed messages the Left sends out to our youth, such phrases as “sharing is cool”, “wealth is unearned”, and “let us help you”. Weaving together history and a keen knowledge of the Constitution, Whittle astounded listeners with statements such as “Everyone—regardless of political affiliation--is a Conservative.” Providing specifics about the ineffectiveness of speech-giving or the handing out pamphlets. He suggested one might better communicate by learning to use pop-culture phrases such as “leave me alone”, and “don’t be such a control freak”. Relating a personal experience, he described talking to a group of college students who professed a belief in the redistribution of wealth, the giving “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”. He offered those in his audience with I-Phones the opportunity to collectively sell them in order to spread the wealth around among the less fortunate. No-one would do this. Conclusion -- they were all Conservatives. Other pop culture phrases he offered were “be virtuous”, “don’t be a jerk”, “don’t hit anybody,” “don’t take other people’s stuff”.
