Bombshell Podesta email: We’ve conspired to ‘produce an unaware and compliant citizenry’

Liberals admit conspiring to keep Americans dumbed-down.

A bombshell email released by Wikileaks reveals the left’s plan to dumb down Americans to produce what it called “an unaware and compliant citizenry” in order to push through its extreme radical agenda.

The email was sent to John Podesta from Bill Ivey, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts during President Bill Clinton’s second term.

“Well, we all thought the big problem for our US democracy was Citizens United/Koch Brothers big money in politics,” he wrote.  “Silly us; turns out that money isn’t all that important if you can conflate entertainment with the electoral process. Trump masters TV, TV so-called news picks up and repeats and repeats to death this opinionated blowhard and his hairbrained ideas, free-floating discontent attaches to a seeming strongman and we’re off and running. JFK, Jr would be delighted by all this as his ‘George’ magazine saw celebrity politics coming. The magazine struggled as it was ahead of its time but now looks prescient. George, of course, played the development pretty lightly, basically for charm and gossip, like People, but what we are dealing with now is dead serious. How does this get handled in the general? Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I’m certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not.”

Here’s the bombshell (Emphasis added):

And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry.

There’s another part of this email that is quite disturbing and hasn’t gotten a lot of attention:

The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.

Translation: The sheep are waking up and we need to stop it.

A post at Conservative Tribune noted:

Ivey admitted how the left has made secret plans to make the public oblivious to their devious plans, but he realized the public isn’t easy to manipulate, which is problematic for Democrats. Unawareness among voters, he insinuated, was a positive for Clinton and the campaign she is running.

This email confirmed what Democrats like Clinton have in mind for the American public. Clinton loves to claim that her vision of America includes one where everyone is treated the same way, but she is only saying what she thinks the public wants to hear.

Of course, this email demonstrates what Clinton and the left think of average Americans, and what they have deliberately done to the population.

By keeping Americans dumbed down and basically focused on the latest shiny object (like 11-year-old comments made by Trump), leftists can do pretty much whatever they want and the sheeple won’t care.

God help us.
