Jeb Bush's First Campaign Ad: I Care More About Minorities, Women, and the Disabled Than My Republicans Opponents and Also That Alcoholic Crone Hillary

Why am I calling Hillary an alcoholic? Oh, I read it in in a magazine.

I think Jeb's ad is pretty good (which is not at all to say I support Jeb).

I think some will fault him for "not pushing back against liberal memes and tropes." Those memes and tropes being that a person's compassion is measured by those legislative initiatives he supports on behalf of black people, Hispanics, and women.

The height of morality is to address a complaint of a minority (or a woman -- "The 51% Minority").

Whereas, on the other hand, the complaints of white people are dismissed as "anger" and "rage."

But it's not a candidate's job to fight the American people's delusions and prejudices on every front. Candidates usually must play to the public's stupidities and bigotries.

This ad is soft and sugary as heck. But I think it's successful in humanizing Jeb. And considering the fact that the progressive psyops campaign is to dehumanize all non-progressives -- and considering how successful that psyops campaign is -- it's important to insist upon one's own humanity.

And, as Allah's post notes, it's all about winning over women, who seem to value empathy and shows of "caring" far more than men, despite the fact that our brains are exactly alike in all ways and that there's no difference at all between men and women except when Bruce Jenner says he always felt like he had a Ladybrain.

In other Jeb! news (the video suggests that that is the proper punctuation when speaking of Jeb!), a Jeb! campaign aid said that Jeb! will be going into "Pickett's Charge" mode against other candidates.
