Georgia GOP Legislators Hear About Obama’s Mind Control

More hidden video of batshit crazy things going on behind the scenes of the Republican party, this time in Georgia, where the Republican caucus in the state senate recently held a closed door meeting to listen to a nutball tell them how Obama is using a secret mind-control technique to lead America into communist tyranny. Mother Jones has the video and the details.

On October 11, at a closed-door meeting of the Republican caucus convened by the body’s majority leader, Chip Rogers, a tea party activist told Republican lawmakers that Obama was mounting this most diabolical conspiracy. The event—captured on tape by a member of the Athens-based watchdog Better Georgia (who was removed from the room after 52 minutes)—had been billed as an information session on Agenda 21, a nonbinding UN agreement that commits member nations to promote sustainable development. In the eyes of conservative activists, Agenda 21 is a nefarious plot that includes forcibly relocating non-urban-dwellers and prescribing mandatory contraception as a means of curbing population growth. The invitation to the Georgia state Senate event noted the presentation would explain: “How pleasant sounding names are fostering a Socialist plan to change the way we live, eat, learn, and communicate to ‘save the earth.’”…

About 23 minutes into the briefing, Searcy explained how President Obama, aided by liberal organizations like the Center for American Progress and business groups like local chambers of commerce, are secretly using mind-control techniques to push their plan for forcible relocation on the gullible public:

They do that by a process known as the Delphi technique. The Delphi technique was developed by the Rand Corporation during the Cold War as a mind-control technique. It’s also known as “consensive process.” But basically the goal of the Delphi technique is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome while keeping the illusion of being open to public input.

Searcy, the article says, was kicked out of a Georgia tea party group for being both a birther and a 911 truther. But not too crazy for the Republican party in Georgia, apparently.

    Yes, if there is one thing the chambers of commerce are known for, it’s how they are always allying with liberal organizations.

    “How pleasant sounding names are fostering a Socialist plan to change the way we live, eat, learn, and communicate to ‘save the earth.’”

    Lol. “Pleasant sounding names,” like “having clean water to drink,” “having a working economy provide the basic necessities of life and a few luxuries, too,” and “not having to eat your own children for food.”

    Geez, mind control technology has really gone downhill in the last 60 years. They used to use lasers, but now evidently they’re stuck with a mere expert elicitation process.

    I’d be interested in knowing how, exactly, one distinguishes the “Delphi Technique” from actual consensus-building.

    I thought birtherism was a main plank of the tea party. How could anything be too crazy for them.

    New techniques?! My tinfoil hat is useless!

    That’s true. Now that these enemies of freedom can get you just by talking and showing you pictures, you’ll also need tinfoil earplugs and glasses.

    There’s some overlap in that Delphi methods can be used to build consensus. But consensus building does not require one use a Delphi methodology, and Delphi does not necessarily build consensus.

    Delphi is really a group of techniques. Collectively, they’re nothing more than a set of formal rules for how to use or assess expert opinion. Some of them don’t require consensus at all. Any such methodology has flaws; the primary advantage of something like a Delphi method is that its transparent. The people using the output will know exactly how qualitative opinions of experts was converted into a prediction or quantitative assessment.
    They aren’t perfect, but they are typically better than the alternative technique for subject matter expert assessment, commonly referred to as BOGSAT – bunch of guys sitting around a table.

    I’m becoming more and more convinced that the GOP is beyond saving. I could buy that they only act crazy to pander to the gullible masses that make up the core of their constituency. Except that every time bootleg footage comes out, we learn that in reality, their public persona has actually been toned down.

    The problem with the long-term Republican plan to dumb down the education of a population is that eventually they reach a certain critical threshold, and start voting ever-more-ignorant people into power. Once a sufficient threshold of those in power are sufficiently ignorant, they can then accelerate the endumbening.

    It has to stop, or we’re going to find out how long the intellectual freefall can continue until it hits the bedrock of reality at terminal velocity.

  10. patricksimons says

    The truly horrifying thing about this is the fact that there are elected officials, so stupid, they actually believe it.

  11. DaveL says

    In other words, not a method of mind control at all. Big surprise there.

  12. John Hinkle says

    That does it. I’m starting a new product line: The Delphi Decoder Ring. Only $29.99. It changes color when the Delphi technique is being used. If you buy 2 now you’ll get the second one for $9.99, plus $20 shipping. Plus I’ll throw in the color decoding map for free.

    One day I hope to move out of Georgia.
    And every day I regret not interviewing for that position in Canada a recruiter called me about.

  14. Ichthyic says

    I’d be interested in knowing how, exactly, one distinguishes the “Delphi Technique” from actual consensus-building.

    easy answer.

    there is no reason to distinguish. In the conspiracist’s mind, one simply REPLACES the other, entirely.

    thus, there never has been consesus-building, it was always the Delphi Technique.

    …and we’ve always been at war with Eurasia.

  15. eric says

    DaveL: well, I suppose they could be used to influence opinions the same way push polls try to do. You could design your Delphi questions not to elicit opinion but to inflence the person being quesitoned. But since a company or agency generally pays small groups of experts to participate in them, the influence would be much smaller (and more expensive) than a push poll.

    “…the goal of the Delphi technique is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome while keeping the illusion of being open to public input.”

    In which case it wouldn’t really be forcible would it?

    Mike.

    My wing-nut relatives told me that Obama only won the 2008 election because he was using hypnotism to get people to vote for him. (Of course, my wing-nut relatives insisted that they were immune from Obama’s hypnotic powers because they refused to watch or listen to Obama for any significant length of time.)

    The idea that Obama has magic mind-control powers is hardly new. Yet I’m still baffled as to why it this idea is so appealing and plausible to a certain brand of wing-nut.

  18. says

    anathema “My wing-nut relatives told me that Obama only won the 2008 election because he was using hypnotism to get people to vote for him.”
    To be fair, he was only passing on the hypnosis from his teleprompter.*

    * Zing! (Apparently)

  19. Chiroptera says

    Does any one else remember the aftermath of the 2000 election when the Republicans were riding around with bumper stickers that read, “Sore/Loserman”?

  20. demonhauntedworld says

    Um, yeah. I’ve used the Delphi technique in my Ph.D. research. I wish I had known that I could have used it for mind control. Would have made life a lot easier.

  21. neonsequitur says

    It’s a Georgia thing. A few years ago they had several victims of UFO abduction testifying before their state congress – Seriously! – because it was a state-wide problem that needed to be addressed at the highest level. Or something.

    I think after hearing the testimony they tabled the issue. Can’t imagine why.

  22. dannorth says

    For the GOP the proof that Obama had a very powerful mind control to win the election is that it thwarted their.

  23. says

    It’s amazing the amount of twisting and turning that Republican elected officials have to do all because they can’t just call him a ni**er in public. And then lynch him. That’s why they want their country back (to 1860).

  24. shouldbeworking says

    Obama must stop getting his sights from gawd. Gawd gets mad at the liberals in New England and smites Florida, Obama’s mind control: more than 50% of Canadians would vote for him.

  25. Chiroptera says

    …Agenda 21 is a nefarious plot that includes forcibly relocating non-urban-dwellers….

    So they’re saying that Agenda 21 is the anti-Khmer Rouge?

  26. lorn says

    Well … there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that people are elected officials and prominent community people in these United States that are so gullible, unskeptical, uneducated and credulous that they can stand to listen to this sort of thing without running out of the room or falling on the floor laughing.

    The good news is that spending time in these sort of ridiculous presentations keep people who might hurt themselves, or risk the common good, relatively safe and out of harms way. Every hour spent in this sort of gathering is an hour not spent dialing for dollars or hatching the next attempt at getting a no-nothing fascist into office.

  27. says

    Holy shitballs!

    This meeting was convened by the state senate majority leader.

    Imagine how batshit crazy the rank-in-file republicans are if this guy is their leader.

    I agree, at least in the near- and even intermediate-term. However it’s also important to distinguish the party from the ideology that now dominates it, that being conservatism.

    The GOP is sick because it’s infected with a type of conservatism. And given the Democratic party now holds the center and arguably, a center-right ideology, that makes reform of the GOP extremely difficult though not impossible from an abstract perspective. From a practical perspective it’s currently impossible because the type of religious-political ideology that conservatism has evolved to in the U.S. is by definition incapable of reform, an attribute that comes from their fundamentalist/evangelical approach to religious belief.

    In fact conservatives’ efforts to bring Hispanic voters on-board in the GOP is a perfect illustration of their reaction to losing elections due to demographics. They seek to recruit Hispanics under the premises they won’t have to change how they govern, think, or develop policy planks with the exception of amnesty for current illegal immigrants. But this reaction is a mere band-aid to contain a symptom, it still has them denying the reality their current ideology can not govern; and the religious aspect of this ideology reveals an attribute where they can’t help but double-down their commitment to failed planks when they’re falsified.

    This failure in thinking is not a feature of political affiliation, but instead defines how American conservatives now think, at least those who dominate the voting base, which is conservative Christians. The scientific research on what I explain here is not merely validative of what I assert here, but also capable of predictions which we increasingly observe as this ideology becomes ever purer in form.

  29. says

    This guy’s a joke. Little do the Republicans know he’s a plant sent by Obama to mislead them with a FAKE mind-control plan, so the real one can work undetected. Islamoliberal atheist evil knows no bounds.
