"Consensus" process

Watch for the so-called concensus to emerge. News stories are telling us that concensus is starting to emerge. Yeah, right.


This is a tactic used by the activist social engineer to move people from one position to another by managing their objections in a clever manner.

They begin with a position that's the desired endpoint. (it's predetermined but not announced to any except those sponsoring the change)

They pretend to have public stakeholder discussions.

They isolate, riducule and denigrate those who object to the new position. Essentially they create a rejection of the person whose views don't go with the program. Social isolation and ridicule are used to silence rational objections. (Facilitator school trains them to make this hard to notice.)

They might form small working groups for a little while and collect the input from those groups. (and ignore it)

Then they announce that concensus has been reached.

And surprise!

It's the predetermined outcome.
No one can object because they been part of the process.

It's called "being concensed."

Do you think that the concensus is that magazines of more than 10 rounds should be banned? And how about EBRs?

It's happening now. And their fingers never leave their hands...... :-(

"They" already have a consensus. They just have not told us what it is yet.

Uncle Joe (Biden, not Stalin) has been studying the violence problem in America for what now, four days? And he says the country has reached a consensus that "assault weapons" and "big clips" need to be banned. Man does he work fast. I would have thought it would take at least, oh, maybe 6 or 7 days for the consensus to form up.

Consensus is irrelevant to a right.

I suppose any closed and isolated group could form a consensus. That doesn't mean it applies to the larger population.
