An Open Letter to the Sixpacks

"Here are the important parts: First, those “news reports”? They’re lies. The Media lies. It lies by omission and commission. Mis-truths, half-truths and outright lies. When they don’t report something, the truth becomes a ‘conspiracy theory’ simply because they didn’t report it that way."

 (An Open Letter to the Sixpacks transcription

 Dear Mr. and Mrs. Sixpack:

As the midterm elections approach, it is possible – even easy - to lose hope the final results will be what every rational person is hoping for: the giant Red Wave that will sweep every liberal out of every office at every level of government: local, state and federal. As November 8th comes closer, here are a few things you’ll want to remember and share with friends, neighbors and family – even flatulent old Uncle Bluster.

You will hear and read “news reports” about the “resurgence of Dark Biden” and other fantasies spun by the liberal blow-dried mainstream media mavens, pundits, anonymous “experts” and former (fill in the blanks) who once served in some important sounding position for some important sounding person in some important sounding department who will state emphatically that Everything Is Beautiful.

There will also be ‘unnamed sources speaking anonymously ’ on anything anti-Trump or anti-Republican; who will also state emphatically that Republicans are seeing the Red Wave turn into a Red Ripple; that “The new politics of bifurcation explains why 18 percent of voters disapprove of Biden but say they will vote for Democrats in the fall.” Even “Republicans are terrorists”.

And there will be polls. Lots and lots of polls showing the Republican lead over Democrats (gasp!) shrinking faster than a watered down wicked witch. With every passing news cycle, as Election Day gets closer, the Republican’s lead will keep shrinking and shrinking until ‘red candidates’ in “heavily red districts” are suddenly (gasp again!) “in a statistical tie” with their ‘blue opponent’ who, just x weeks ago was down by 2 million points!

Here are the important parts: First, those “news reports”? They’re lies. The Media lies. It lies by omission and commission. Mis-truths, half-truths and outright lies. When they don’t report something, the truth becomes a ‘conspiracy theory’ simply because they didn’t report it that way.

Simply put: If you question the popular narrative, you’re a conspiracy theorist. If they simply don’t report it, it’s the truth by default. Heads they win; tails you lose.

But what about all those polls? Remember this anyone - anyone - with a Visa, MasterCard, AmEx or Wal-Mart can buy a poll. You get to say what questions will be asked. You say who gets asked those questions. You say what age, sex, and race are polled; where they live, what’s their income, how many kids do they have – all that and more. In other words, you can tailor your “poll” to confirm anything you want it to. That’s what they do – and they’ve been doing it for decades. That’s what you can do. But you won’t. Polls aren’t cheap and they need credibility – like being associated with ABC or NBC or FOX, e.g., “An ABC/Sixpack Poll says 79% of those polled believe Donald Trump is a Russian agent from Mars who likes Chinese food”.

Who believes this? Do you, Mr. and Mrs. Sixpack, believe it when:

Vanity Fair magazine claims Maybe Democrats Aren't Totally Screwed in the midterms?

The Atlantic claiming Democrats might avoid a midterm wipeout?

The New York Times reported “growing evidence against a Republican wave.”?

The Washington Post reports Democrats are showing momentum coming out of special electionsAnd…?

NPR claims Biden's recent wins could give Democrats a boost heading into November?

Even ‘conservative’ Fox News claiming midterms looking 'much better' for Democrats because of Trump?

Right now, the media is pushing the narrative that Biden has had a resurgence! They are citing his ‘legislative accomplishments’ on tech manufacturing, guns, infrastructure, and climate change. Oh, and he’s wearing his Aviators again! (Cataracts? Or identifying with Tom Cruise?)

Putting aside confirmation bias and cognizant dissonance, most reasonable people following the “news”, are beginning to understand the active hand the “MSM” has had in massaging the facts. Irrespective of FBI, DNC and others interfering in our elections, do you understand what’s happening?

You. Are. Being. Played.

The Elites of the “Deep State”, DNC, “and other liberal organizations see you as the Deplorable. Ignorant. Uninformed. Lazy. You have been successfully demoralized by the ‘fake news’; the inevitable Red Wave has inexplicably become high humidity. So you’ll stay home with a tub of popcorn, watching Bret Beir play with this tumescent computer screen, popping up states and races turning blue with all the excitement of a gamer playing Grand Theft Auto XXIV.

This is the game the liberals and their media buds play every election cycle. They play you. Don’t let them get away with it again. Vote. In-person. Bring friends. Volunteer as poll watchers. Make noise. Don’t be the Polite Republican getting stomped on by the Big Bad Liberal.

Resist. Take a stand. You may not get another chance.

  1. I listened to your open letter to Mr. and Mrs. Six-pack. It was very entertaining and made me smile. You write really funny material and I like your delivery.
    Since you suggested being a “poll watcher,” I want to share my experience doing that. Back when the Brian and Bob Show was in Washington, I thought that I would get involved in politics to try to make things better.

    I signed up to be a poll watcher. The term “poll watcher” may give voters the impression that someone is on the lookout to make sure that everything is fair. As a poll watcher I only could stand around and watch people vote. Nobody voted twice but that is not how elections are rigged anyway. At the end of the day, when the poll closed, they opened up the back of the machine to look at the odometers. These were the old level style machines before computer touch screens. As the numbers were called off to an election official, I watched to make sure that they were accurately copied on an official piece of paper. The totals were then called in by telephone so the news media could quickly report the results.

    That was all that I could do as a poll watcher. But I was wondering about the gears inside of the machine that turned the numbers on the odometer. How’d that work I wondered.

    Next time I signed up to be an election judge. I thought this would give me more power to make sure that everything was fair. I joined a group of people at the local library and we were all sworn in to be election judges. They showed us a computer touchscreen machine and taught us how to unlock it, turn it on, and turn it off.

    Then we tried the machine out and people voted for their favorites. I wrote in “Mickey Mouse.” When the machine was turned off a receipt came out like you get from a cash register. It showed the totals for all the candidates and one vote for “Mickey Mouse.”

    I then announced that I would show up early on election day to test all of the machines at my precinct. “Oh no,” they said, “you can’t do that because once you turn the machine off it will be locked and no longer can be used on election day.” “But I am the judge,” I protested, “It is my job to make sure the machines are working properly.”

    They told me that I could test the machine that they had brought to the library, but I would not be permitted to test the machines used on election day. It was sort of like, “here, examine this deck of playing cards, and now for my magic trick I will use another deck of cards that I have in my pocket.

    I did not go ahead as an election judge because I did not want to give my neighbors the false impression that I had made sure everything was fair.

    I wrote to the Maryland State Board of Elections and complained that as an election judge I could not examine the voting machines. The wrote back and told me that I should have “faith” in the system. Sorry, voting machines are not my religion.

    I think that 2,500 years ago in ancient Greece, Plato may have said to Socrates, “Hey, I got a great idea, why don’t we let people vote so they can choose their own leader.” Socrates replied, “I have a better idea. Why don’t we choose the leader, and let the people vote so that they’ll think that they are choosing the leader.” This has been going on for a long time.

    I propose that on election day no one goes to the polls, and if only 10% of voters show up it will be a vote of no confidence in the system. I say we get rid of the voting. I saw a tee-shirt once that said, “Every time I think that things can’t get any worse, they have another election.”

    Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas have written some good things about monarchy as a form of government. In the Illiad, Home wrote, “The rule of many is not good, the rule of one is best.” I think that Homer may have been right about that.

    What about King Brian? You would be perfect because you are reasonable.

    We will give you a palace, a throne, and piles of gold so that you cannot be corrupted.
