The “silent majority” was a term coined by Richard Nixon’s Presidential campaign as a dog whistle to all of the voters who hated hippies, free love, Vietnam protest, long hair, flag burning and other symbols of 60/70s youth culture – but felt in a minority. Nixon assured them that they were actually the majority, that it was their conservative / reactionary opinions which were mainstream, contrary to what the media of the time would have had you believe. The “Silent Majority” proceeded to demonstrate the truth of this by electing Nixon, much to the surprise of the chattering classes.
Nothing has changed in the past 50 years.I know none of us on ysb are part of this silent majority. We are vocal in our condemnation of this bunch of misfits, weirdos, liars and generally useless people masquerading as a government.
I think there is such a body of people out there who will not be wanting to be seen as shit stirrers. They will be biding their time and waiting until the next election when they will have their say in the polling booth.
What we have to do, is make sure they hear about all the insidious things this COL is doing. With the MSM firmly in the pockets of the left, it is even more important that we keep banging the drum about our freedoms being eroded.
