Changing Attitudes via Cognitive Dissonance Theory (CDT)

Posted by Socrates in Cognitive Dissonance Theory, Cultural Marxism, jewed culture, Jewed philosophy, Jewed science, psychology, social justice, social sciences, Socrates at 2:46 pm | Permanent Link

Let’s say that you’re a college student. Here’s an example of how CDT could be used against you: Slowly, you come to realize that your beliefs about race are wrong because you feel uncomfortable when presented with “newer” (and therefore more “accurate”) information about those beliefs (i.e., you experience CD, which is tension, which feels uncomfortable). Therefore, you slowly alter your beliefs about race until you no longer feel CD when talking about or considering “newer” and more “accurate” information about race. You eventually come to realize that the Cultural Marxists were right all along about race and that you were wrong all along about race. You could call the use of Cognitive Dissonance Theory, in this way, a form of desensitization or brainwashing; it’s a psychological tool and it was invented by a Jew (of course) named Leon Festinger. CDT is used in a wide variety of social and racial “education” programs [1].

[1] an easier way to describe the practice of CDT is: you pressure someone with political correctness, psycho-baloney and “White guilt” until he accepts and adopts your beliefs

      What about the 9 bikers shot to death by the law enforcement at Waco?

      Another technique psychologists use is sometimes called “conditioning.” They will interview their “consumer” [new PC term] supposedly without judgment. However, they will subtly reinforce the expression of certain ideas (the “correct” ones) by feigning intense interest, and paying close attention.

      If the consumer wishes to discuss alternatives to the therapist’s preferred path, he might be met with quick “we’ll come back to that later” or “no, I don’t think that’s terribly important.”

      Since most people enjoy attention, this behavior is an effective means of control. Only the most self-assured people will challenge it. The subject might not even be consciously aware that he is being conditioned.

      Practitioners also try to cultivate what is sometimes called “referent power.” In other words, they attempt to persuade the consumer to value the approval the therapist highly.

      Seems to me that most people’s problems stem directly from who has this referent power inside their head. For example, “friends” may encourage the individual to drink to excess. Smoking may be result of residual referent power of the old high school clique. Anorectics may refer to peers with the same eating disorder for approval, rather than doctors or parents.

      The left wing groups at college (Greenpeace, Amnesty International, etc) provide the “friendship” and network for getting good career placement. Students who don’t join enthusiastically are ignored, or not given the extra encouragement and support from the professors, who naturally have referent power over the young students.

      Or, you threaten to destroy his career and blackball him.

      And, there are plenty of examples, Paula Deen, James Watson for starters.

      fd, I once had the Franklin Mint limited edition Easy Rider “Captain America” chopper bike model. It was really nice but it fell off the shelf on to the carpet and broke into thousands of pieces…couldn’t put the damn thing back together again. WTF????

      I know how the jews and their social-Marxist stooges operate, the way they can imperceptibly alter public attitudes regarding faggotry, race-mixing and so forth. But thankfully none of their brainwashing techniques have had any effect on me whatsoever. Sometimes it really does pay to be a little anti-social.

      Psychological techniques are not wrong in themselves. Possibly a responsible therapist could use them to help a consumer become more self-aware. But most psychologists and even medical doctors just push the government line.

      When children are “diagnosed” as being the wrong gender is it because their parents were conditioned by some trendy hipster who is hoping for media attention?

      What were your first inklings that Tomás might be on a different path?

      Amy: Before he could talk, he was wearing my high heels. Sometimes I would let him wear them to the store, and this was in DC, so it’s not common. He was also obsessed with mermaids, which is pretty interesting, because a lot of kids who tend towards non-conforming love Ariel, the mermaid princess. I guess it’s ambiguous from the waist down — he’s not really sure what she is. She has a tail, and she changes. When Tomás was 4, I bought him an Ariel dress.

      The boy could fit into an adult woman’s shoes, balance correctly and walk to the store, all before he could talk?

      And he liked some type of cartoon mermaid? So what?

      His parents, Amy and Pete Rochas of Berkeley, Calif., had occasionally allowed their son to wear his preferred clothing of skirts or dresses in the privacy of their own home. But it wasn’t until his teacher brought up the possibility that Tomás might be transgender …

      Latino parents often view teachers as “government officials,” which in our society, they actually are. They may feel compelled to cooperate with even the most patent lunacy.

      Is the teacher a gay male?

      At school, he wanted to be called Luna. At home, he wanted to be called Tomás. But I don’t know if maybe we didn’t really… I’m not sure if it was fully accepted at home.

      Apologizing as if trying to ingratiate themselves with some authority figure or someone they feared.

      Maybe the gay teacher threatened to report the family to immigration if they didn’t go along with his fantasies about their son.

      The groveling apologies demanded of White public figures who criticize the System are a form of mass psychological conditioning.

      To Trump’s credit, he did not comply any such demands.

      In all the chaos generated by the Supreme Court this past week, with approvals and support for Obamacare, Affirmative Action in housing, and homosexual marriages, Trump’s resistance has received little attention.

      During his presidential campaign kickoff speech last week, Trump portrayed immigrants from Mexico as “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.” He also called for building a wall along the southern border of the U.S. The remarks drew condemnation from the Mexican government as “biased and absurd.”

      In an interview Thursday, Trump said his criticism was directed against U.S. policymakers, not the Mexican people or government, adding that Univision would be defaulting on its contract if it doesn’t air the pageant and he would take legal action.

      On Friday, a representative for Trump sent FOX411 a letter the mogul sent Univision president Randy Falco. The letter began, “Please be advised that under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use Trump National Doral, Miami — its golf courses or any of its facilities.”

      He added, ” Also, it’s too bad you didn’t have the courage to call me yourself instead of delegating the task to Beau.”

      Trump concluded the letter with, “Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States. However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over. We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists.”

      “At Univision, we see firsthand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country,” said the New York-based Univision Communications Inc.

      Trump said Univision is submitting to pressure from Mexican leaders to punish him for positions he voices as a candidate on the campaign trail.

      “They don’t want me saying that Mexico is killing the United States in trade and killing the United States at the border,” Trump said. “Univision is totally laying down for the Mexican government. … They want to silence Donald Trump. And Donald Trump can’t be silenced. … I have great respect for Mexico and I love the Mexican people, but my loyalty is to the United States.”

      Univision declined to comment on Trump’s remarks. It also has the rights to air the Miss Universe pageant.

      In an interview scheduled to air Sunday on Telemundo’s “Enfoque con José Díaz-Balart,” Trump said that “many bad people are coming in” from Mexico and elsewhere.

      “You’re going to have terrorists coming through the southern border. There’s no question about it,” he said.

      The host challenged Trump, contending there has been no act of terrorism committed by someone crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

      “You don’t know that,” Trump replied, adding later: “See what happens tomorrow. See what happens in two weeks from now. … I’m not even talking about terrorists from this region. I’m talking about from the Middle East they can come in. The border is totally open.”

      Also on Thursday, Chilean actor-producer Cristian de la Fuente, the show’s other co-host, had strong words for Trump: “It’s a shame that such an important institution as Miss USA is now in the hands of a clown.”

      “It’s a shame that such an important institution as Miss USA is now in the hands of a clown.”

      He must be joking there ….
