"Credibly Accused"

Not sure when it happened, but this is the new way to paint someone as guilty on an unproven allegation. Basically, you have a party subjectively deem an allegation "credible" under the guise of it not being able to be disproved. Then you repeat this claim ad nauseum until it sounds like it's a reasonable assumption that the accused is guilty.

With Kavanagh, you now have a guy who has had some allegations definitively proven untrue. And one of the recent NY Times "bombshell" new allegations is denied by the very person it allegedly happened to.

So you have two claims remaining:
-Ford's, where her friend who was supposed to corroborate it did not despite immense pressure to. And where there is no evidence whatsoever.
-Ramirez's, where there was a room full of people and not a single one corroborates it. And of course, the decades old claim has no evidence like Fords

So two uncorroborated, unverified, decades old allegations that were never reported to authorities. No evidence. No witnesses. No reason whatsoever to believe them except that they said it happened.

This is what a "credible allegation" looks like. Be careful when you see this term used in the media. Kamala Harris thought the allegations made by Jussie Smollett were quite credible, too.

Nothing new here. As old as mankind. Bearing false witness is one of the Ten Commandments for good reason.

Herr Goebbels would be proud of the tactics the Democrats (and others) use.


"Communists Burned The Reichstag!"

Jefferson and Adams vilified each other with "anonymous" pamphlets. Jefferson accused Adams of being a hermaphrodite hundreds. (Did Adams use the transgender outhouse?)

Henry VIII crimes of treason charges against his wives.

Thomas More "Trial"

Joan of Arc "Trial"

Centuries of Intrigue in the Roman Senate

Allegations against Christ in Pilate's judgement.


Watch:

1939's "Mr Smith Goes To Washington" while Jimmy Stewart's filibustering, "The Machine" back home is planting discrediting stories in their controlled papers and radio stations. It was a movie utilizing common tactics.

1964's "The Best Man" with Henry Fonda with various candidates getting "the dirt", real or innuendo, on the others.

1962's "Advise and Consent", A treatise on the U.S. Senate's Confirmation Process.


The Nazi's "The Jews are GUILTY!" So what's new there? For 2000 years the Catholic Church (and the protestors) reminded the faithful around the world at every Easter Midnight Mass ... that the Jews did do it! "Let it be on us and upon our children"



“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”
― Joseph Goebbels

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”
― Joseph Goebbels

Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.”
― Joseph Goebbels

“That propaganda is good which leads to success, and that is bad which fails to achieve the desired result. It is not propaganda’s task to be intelligent, its task is to lead to success.”
― Joseph Goebbels

This is what “credibly accused” looks like in 2019.

Dioceses have been using that term for quite some time, not just after Kavanaugh

I’d actually really like to know when it first started being adopted and by who. It seems to have exploded in usage since the Kav hearing.
