OFA’s plan for to create a One Party Nation by turning Texas Blue

Organizing

I originally was going to do a  joke thread that Conservatives should join the Democrat Party to the advantages of media and culture. But a more important subject has come up that I need to discuss.

On last night’s radio show AZ Old Dog, Eagle Soars, Osprey and I discussed the technological machine that is Organizing for Action. This machine which led to Obama’s re-election triumph in 2012 despite a bad economy. Yes the Democrats advantage with the popular culture and Media helped, but it was the technological advantage that really is the key to the Democrat’s strength. Now OFA is setting its sight on a new target, Texas.

Some on the blog scoff at the notion at Texas turning blue, do so at your own peril. Organizing For Action’s data mining techniques and manipulation of voters through slick messaging works. I saw first hand how in Florida they turned the once solidly Republican Cuban American vote, into swing vote that broke narrowly for Obama. They did through a combination of fear mongering by claiming Republicans were going to take away Dry Foot, Wet Foot and using bigoted words of people like Ann Coulter in emails. The result was Cubans got angry and scared of the Republicans and broke with a  Party they have backed for nearly 50 years. It was dirty, but i worked.

Texas is currently solidly Red, but many from Blue States have move in. Although the Texas Republican Party does better with the Hispanic vote (35%-40%) than the party does nationally (27%), using the Florida blueprint of fear mongering and propaganda, OFA hopes to make them solidly Democrat. They also plan to target younger Texans who may not be as culturally Conservative as their parents. The trick OFA will use is to try to convince these younger voters that the Democrats are fiscally Conservative but Socially tolerant. They then will use Republicans like Santorum, who is OFA’s greatest asset, into shaming voters from voting Republican.  I met people who really believe that on fiscal and economic matters that there is no difference than Republicans and Democrats. They vote Democrat because OFA has convinced them Republicans are hateful bigots. Republicans have never refuted any of these allegations, because they are not aware of what OFA is doing.

The man who is tasked with turning Texas blue is Jeremy Bird. Using OFA’s micromanagement tactics he pulled  a surprise win for Obama in Florida. Now he is being given the resources to make Texas a Battleground state and then eventually a Democrat stronghold. He is the head of the OFA offshoot, Battleground Texas.

But who is capable of pulling just this scenario off? Enter: Battleground Texas and its senior adviser, Jeremy Bird.

Last month, Politico reported that Mr. Bird — President ’s 2012 campaign national field director — was in Austin, Texas to meet with local Democrats on Battleground Texas, “a large-scale independent group aimed at turning traditionally conservative Texas into a prime electoral battleground.”

In his early 30s, Mr. Bird is a current and future star of the Democratic Party’s awesomely effective campaign machine. As Mr. Obama’s field director, he revolutionized the effectiveness of the traditional field model, registering, among a great many others, 361,000 left-leaning voters in Florida, 156,000 left-leaning voters in Colorado and 96,000 left-leaning voters in Nevada. Not bad, considering Mr. Obama’s candidacy was no longer an historic first.

[....]

“Bird wouldn’t play in Texas on a hope,” Vlytics partner Scott Tranter told TheDC. “He can pick his next job; choose his next salary. If he’s moving to Texas, it’s because he thinks he can win — and he’s proven that he can.”

Over his three presidential campaigns, Mr. Bird has been responsible for millions of door knocks and tens of millions of phone calls that didn’t simply target Democrats — they targeted Republican and undecided Americans that Mr. Obama’s data operation knew were likely to respond favorably.

“Our approach — using smart data, people-to-people organizing, and digital strategies and analytics — can win even the toughest of campaigns,” Mr. Bird said on a Tuesday conference call with reporters, “and we know it will work in Texas too.”

Indeed, Mr. Bird is at the cutting edge of the technological prowess that helped the Democrats so effectively defeat the Republicans in 2008 and 2012. The Wall Street Journal described his approach as “one part data and one part emotional connection. He keeps close track of which states are making their targets each day, but also preaches the value of relationships — between the campaign and its volunteers, and between volunteers and voters.”

[....]

On Feb. 24, Mr. Bird retweeted a Huffington Post article in which Mr. Perry said that Texas going blue “is the biggest pipe dream I have ever heard.”

Mr. Bird added two words: “Love this.”

Do not laugh at Jeremy Bird’s confidence about Texas. He has turned Red States like Florida Blue using data-mining, paid volunteers embedded in neighborhoods and using Republicans own words against them.
The problem facing Republicans is not demographic. Groups change their voting patterns over time. White Southerners were once solidly Democrat, but now are the base of the Republican Party. The North East and Upper Midwest was once the home of he Republican Party, now it is the Democrat Party’s home turf. Young voters in the 1980′s voted for Ronald Reagan and thought Republicans were cool. Now they view Republicans as evil and out of touch. Hence why I did not emphasize any demographic change in Texas as the reason for it potentially going blue, it is OFA’s methods and technological superiority that can make it go blue.
No amount of change in language, tactics or outreach to new groups of voters will amount to a hill of beans until the Republicans come up with their version of Organizing for Action. Unlike the Democrats, the GOP will not need to distort the truth or demagogue to win voters. But the Party needs to mimic the OFA’s data-mine and behavioral analysis, plus establishing personal relationships with voters. That is the only way to win going forward.
Demography is not destiny, but Technology is. If the GOP does not create an OFA like organization; then Texas will be gone in the next few cycles. If that happens, then my joke will have to be a reality. Conservatives will have to join the Democrat Party to have any influence.

    Good morning Rodan. Do you ever sleep? First, can you elaborate a bit on ‘behavorial analysis’? Whose behavior, at what unit of aggregation, and what parameters are used as filters/flags, and/or tell us where we can find more info about it?

    One thing I’ve noticed -- and I’m certainly not the first -- is that Democrats tend to be more amenable to joining groups while Republicans are -- well -- busy (ahem). That’s a real cultural difference that might need to be accounted for when designing a strategy.

    Ok, my tea is hot and sweet and I’m moderately awake.


  2. 2 | February 28, 2013 7:34 am

    @ eaglesoars:

    Like I said yesterday, ifthe Dems succeed in turning Texas Blue, we are doomed. There will be nothing to stand between them and total domination until the United States comes apart under the debt. That said, I don’t see it happening. OFA may have won the election for Obama, but Obama was a strong candidate. How many times did I say that the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT would be a formidible opponent? He had numerous advantages. OFA was only one of them. OFA will fare far differently in Texas than it did Virginia and Florida, where government gnomes in No.VA. and snowbirds in Florida helped to turn the tide.

    I know you are not sanguine about the possibilty, but still, I think you compare apples and oranges.

    The apples are the northeast cultural influences in NoVa and among the people who move to Florida from the NE (the term ‘snowbirds’, btw, refers to people who winter in Florida, not necessarily to legal residents).

    The difference in Texas is that the demographic flux is in the Hispanic population growth. A lot of people think that’s good for conservatives because of the historic religiousity, etc.

    But that’s no longer true. It’s not that they are not religious, it’s that the infrastructure the Catholic church used to have to address their assimilation is a shadow of what it once was.

    How’s Erica? send me another pic, m’kay?

    Rodan, I think you’re confusing Swing State and Blue State. Texas is not going to go blue for at least 12+years. It could be a swing state a little sooner, but it takes time to become blue.


  5. 5 | February 28, 2013 7:52 am

    @ eaglesoars:

    I’ll get my wife on that. Erika is wonderful! She is so sweet and loving! She has totally socialized with the other cats, and has adapted to life in our family well. And she is growing! She’s going to be a big, beautiful girl. Her father weighs over 20 pounds, and her mother about 16, so she has the genetics for size.


  6. 6 | February 28, 2013 7:53 am

    @ Iron Fist:

    Morning.

    This is the first of many posts on OFA. The first Black President thing help, but that is not what is at work here. The Democrats have created one of their local Party machines on a national scale. They can run a Local crackhead of any color and get the same result.

    The key is manipulation and using stupid comments by certain Republicans about certain groups. OFA then shots out emails that this Republican said this about group XXX. This gets people pissed and then they send people door to door to reinforce their message. People are not voting for the Democrats, they are voting out of anger via manipulation against he Republicans.

    AZ Old Dog is doing a technical posts about OFA. As a fellow Techie, this will scare the living daylights out of you. The more I read about OFA, the scarier it is.

    That is true. That is one of the problems with the current Amnesty plans. That sets on the path about another 12 million Democrat voters. That s just the Republicans surrendering on National Politics. I have to admit, I can’t figure the Republicans out. It looks to me like they are trying to committ electoral suicide.

    @ Rodan:

    Morning I’ve go t a doctor’s appointment this morning, so I won’t be around much until later. I’ll be really interested in seeing the technical writeup on OFA. I think they are formidible, but they are something we can counter if we have the will to do so. It is the will to do so that I am concerned about. It looks to me as though the Republicans are giving up.

    Another thing I want to bring up -- last week Maxine Waters -- may her plastic surgeon sit at the right hand of the Creator -- was yammering about ‘the database Obama is creating that will know everything about everyone’. She wasn’t complaining, btw, she thought it was great.

    What exactly is this database she’s talking about? I don’t know, but donuts to dollars, OFA will have it and it’s being developed w/taxpayer money.


  10. 10 | February 28, 2013 8:04 am

    @ eaglesoars:

    The Democrats have infrastructure in Hispanic communities. This gives them a leg up on Republicans. This infrastructure allows them to develop personal relationships. In other words, Hispanics are hearing only one side of the story. OFA then uses comments by some Republicans to get them angry.

    Look at how the Cuban Community flipped. OFA used a false rumor and created fear and anger. It worked.

    This is beyond Hispanics and this is just one example. They did this with young voters and single women. Personal relationships and targeted manipulation was the method. This was enabled by Technology.


  11. 11 | February 28, 2013 8:05 am

    Someone on another blog pointed something out about the Republican party yesterday. This person had worked for the party at the local level. What the problem is, is that the Federal organization doesn’t talk to the State Organization, and the State Organization doesn’t talk to the local. There’s no co-ordination, no sharing of ANY resources, and no assistance come election time. The higher organizations look to the lower ones to just get out the vote. They EXPECT the lower groups to do it with only the resources that the lower group has managed to raise themselves.

    The worst part is that all the higher levels think this is normal. No communications, no sharing of funding, nothing. Like it’s been said before they are now the Palooka Party.

    We have a winner here! That is exactly what OFA is doing. Akins sunk many Republican Senate Candidates. Obama did not run against the real Romney, but an Imaginary Romney who was turned into a clone of Rick Santorum.

    As to the Behavioral aspects, I wil do a separate post on that. I am doing research.

    You got that. It stunned me how the Republican Party provided no resources to local chapters. The Democrats via OFA made sure thy had resources down to the local level.

    Reminds me of when Hugo Chavez’s political opposition simply walked away and dissolved letting him have full reign. He had no whipping boy at that point and was fully responsibile for the results. The people had to suffer the consequences and from the Venezualans I spoke too over the years, its pretty bad.

    Hiya Buckeye, how are ya!

    Yes, but I found out last nite during the blogmoc radio call that some muckety muck from Google has gone to the dark side and joined OFA.

    I’ll be using bing or Ask

    Judge Napolitano was on Fox & Friends earlier saying that the Feds can now pick up the sender and recipient info from emails w/o a warrant. They only need a warrant if they want the actual verbiage.

    Waiting at the airport last night, in the heart of Obama Ground Zero—the number of pro-Obama and pro-Obamacare bumper stickers I saw while in Chicago was deeply depressing—I started musing on the concept of “reparations” and on how the Administration is actively trying to demonize “old white men” from the Founders to today’s voters, to undermine the validity of the Constitution and to delegitimize the Republican Party as the party of “racists” and “old white men” whose opinions are ipso facto unworthy of serious engagement.

    It occurred to me that we are wrong in thinking of “reparations” as demanded by the Left as being the pursuit of mere monetary gain. It is that, of course—but it is much more. The essence of “reparations” is not the money; it is the objective of ensuring that “white men”—who are considered irredeemably racist, regardless of how much “education” they are subjected to—should be as disadvantaged, and, more importantly, to be made to feel as disadvantaged and as subject to systematic prejudice—as today’s blacks, and black men particularly, believe blacks to have been disadvantaged in the pre-Civil Rights Movement past.

    In short, when the Left talks of “re-making society” or “fundamentally transforming the nation,” they mean not merely the economic transformation away from a free-market society towards a socialist model, but are referring to a long-term revanchist agenda which involves imposing color and gender prejudice as a basic social norm, but as an inverted form of what they believe to have been the social norm for the bulk of American history.

    My point, such as it is, is that most people look at the whole issue of “black reparations” as being a debate over money—but that the money issue is merely a surface distraction.

    The long-term objective, which is coming out very clearly now with the across-the-board demonization of “racist white men” from the Founders to the NRA to everything in between, is to “niggerize” (to use Toure’s term) white men and to make of them an underclass. The impulse for revenge in the black community, and the hatred of this society by the Left in general, is that broad and deep—and it is a mistake not to recognize it.

    CSCOPE, a controversial school curriculum, reportedly in use by approximately 70% of Texas school districts will be the subject of a review by the Senate Committee on Education 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, in Hearing Room E1.028 at the Texas State Capitol.

    That would be Jan 31 of this year.

    Controversy surrounding CSCOPE includes concerns over the curriculum’s alleged anti-American tone, poorly written materials, lack of oversight through taxpayer-accountable public education channels and lack of transparency with regard to the program’s development, administration and organizational structure.

    Texas CSCOPE Review details the criticism and concerns parents, administrators and/or taxpayers are raising with regard to this curriculum.

    In CSCOPE – What’s Behind the Curtain?, retired Texas public school teacher Colleen Vera recently detailed the questionable nature of CSCOPE’s administration and income-generating capacity – an important issue considering CSCOPE’s development and administration appear to be at taxpayer expense yet seemingly significant revenue generated by the program flows to an extra-governmental entity.

    If anyone wants to read about how the KGB took over indigenous civil-rights and independence movements, there are a lot of very good and depressing books on the topic. “The Sword and the Shield”, the VERONA papers, “The Black Book of Communism”, and on and on.

    Great economic news! GDP did not contract in the 4th quarter, it expanded!

    U.S. economy grew 0.1% in fourth quarter

    CNBC says the economy is great!

    “The breakdown remains consistent with more positive future growth,” TD Securities said in a note to clients.

    Consumer spending was more robust by comparison, although it only expanded at a 2.1 percent annual rate.

    Because household spending powers about 70 percent of national output, this still-lackluster pace of growth suggests underlying momentum in the economy was quite modest as it entered the first quarter, when significant fiscal tightening began.

    However, data on retail sales and from the housing market has suggested a tax hike enacted in January did not deal a big blow to households. Incomes have grown for U.S. families who have also made inroads in reducing their debt burdens.

    Ahem, the article I linked just said “Soviets”, not “KGB”.

    One of the great eyewitness reports of how Soviets took over local democracy / libertarian movements is George Orwell’s “Homage to Catalonia”. Orwell was on the front lines of POUM, the liberal / libertarian party, which chose to join the Spanish Republic. The leadership of the Spanish Republic was basically Leninist; they were a pretty disgusting bunch. Meanwhile the Soviets were there just to take over the Republic, at which task they had succeeded just before Franco kicked them out.

    While I agree with you that “reparations” is a bogus issue; that its immediate purpose is vote-buying and graft, and that no such thing is “owed,” I believe you are missing my essential point—that the vote-buying and graft are merely the current, surface feature of a much more pernicious ideology. The long-form objective is to re-create Jim Crow in an inverted form, with “white men” filling the “scapegoat class” role. The revanchist ideology of the Left goes much deeper, and is aimed far more structurally, at the society than the mere financial details of the present “reparations” demand.

    If you truly wish to “call out” the Left, you must realize that there is a long-term objective behind their present actions.

    Rubio really is an idiot Devious on Foreign Policy.

    As the White House considers stepping up its non-lethal assistance to Syrian rebels, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., suggested Wednesday that it also consider sending ammunition to the forces fighting dictator Bashar al-Assad.

    “We don’t have to give them weapons. I think they have plenty of weapons, quite frankly,” Rubio said in remarks at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a think tank. “What the opposition really needs is access to ammunition.”

    “That’s a step that I’m prepared to advocate for, the provision of ammunition to resistance groups within Syria that we believe we can build a long-term dialogue with,” he said.

    Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a rising voice on international affairs in the GOP, recently returned from a trip to the region that included stops in Israel and Jordan. And he warned that even as the civil war between Assad’s forces and opposition fighters rages on, another conflict is beginning to build: the battle to control Syria once Assad falls.

    There are “clear signs of Al Nusra and others laying down lines” to establish control of certain parts of the country and stockpiling weapons “to solidify their hold,” Rubio said, referring to an extremist group that is among the rebels fighting Assad.

    The problem for the United States is that the “best-equipped, best-armed factions in Syria are the most radical ones,” he said. “We should want the best-organized and best-equipped and most dominant groups in the opposition to be groups that are friendly to our national interests.”

    None of the rebels are friendly to the US. I am going to shoot him an email. He needs to stop listening to the Wilsonian/Arab agents liars.

    Arm them to kill each other!

    @ buzzsawmonkey:
    O/T relevant to a conversation we previously had.

    Tawana Brawley served with court order to pay man she accused of rape in 1987

    Infamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her.

    “For at least 25 years, she has been living a major lie,” said former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones, who was falsely accused of raping Brawley in 1987 and finally tracked her down, thanks to The Post.

    “To me, this has always been about responsibility and accountability,’’ added the former ADA, who won the $190,000 defamation lawsuit against Brawley, 40, now a nurse in Virginia, more than a decade ago.

    At 9 percent interest, that debt, which Brawley never attempted to pay off, now totals $431,492, according to the wage-garnishment papers filed in Virginia’s Surry County Court.

    Brawley — whose unbelievable lies made the Rev. Al Sharpton a household name as he bombastically championed her cause — had changed her name and moved down South in the years since she was exposed.

    Her fugitive-like antics long thwarted Pagones’ efforts to serve her with the court papers needed to get the financial damages due him.

    But The Post finally found Brawley last month, effectively leading Pagones and his lawyer to her.

    She was living under the assumed name of Tawana Vacenia Thompson Gutierrez in Hopewell, Va., and working as a licensed nurse at The Laurels of Bon Air, a nursing home in nearby Richmond.

    According to Pagones’ lawyer, Garry Bolnick, the single mom’s wages could be docked 10 to 25 percent per paycheck as retribution for her lies.

    Pagones said he might waive his entitled windfall — if Brawley finally ’fesses up.

    “There is a feeling of unfinished business to it,” he said of the case that ended his career and cost him his marriage. “I look at this as another opportunity for her to tell the truth.

    My point is merely that the “fundamental transformation of society” that Obama and the Left are aiming at is to do two things: first, to pull off the remarkable feat of falsely defining “white people” as a monolithic group, then making the subgroup of “white men” the same kind of scapegoat minority Jews were in Nazi Germany, while building up a coalition majority of “victim groups” whose ills can be blamed on the supposed actions of this minority. There are opt-out provisions for some “whites”—women, as “gender victims,” homosexuals as “sexual orientation” victims, even some men, if they are union members or sufficiently progressive—but even these will have an inferior, middle status, like “coloreds” under South African apartheid, on the basis of their “whiteness.”

    Remember, though, it is not just the Republican buttons they are pushing. For 30-40 years now—which means for the entire lifetime of many voters—”racist” has been the worst thing you can be, and “white racism” has been constantly invoked in schools and in political discourse. “Sexism” has been a close second, and “homophobic” hard on the heels of those two.

    The Democrats Left is pushing the “white male” thing in order to constantly reinforce that to be Republican, or to be conservative in any way, is to innately be, and/or be allied with—and certainly to be accused of being—racist, sexist, and homophobic. You don’t want to be those terrible things, do you? Then avoid that Party of the Evil Racists, Sexists, and Homophobes. Do not listen to them. Reject anything they say out of hand, because they are innately Racist, Sexist, and Homophobic—and you will be called that if you say anything that even sounds like what they say. Do not say—do not even think—anything that sounds like it could have been said on Fox News. Do not even cite to Fox News, because a fact is not a fact if Fox says it.

    That is what conservatives, and the ever-clueless Republicans, are up against.

    Goes along with their impending downgrade of our military. Take their ammo, rations, and medical supplies and give them to the asshats they will have to engage again at some point.

    I like the ammo side though, as long as they have ammo to kill each other the fighting will continue. Assad saw the stick up the butt treatment given to the Libyan Col, and doesn’t intend to go that way. Where does he go? What choice does he have, but to continue to fight!
