With Mark Dice’s latest petition stunt, this time a petition to repeal the Second Amendment and imprison registered gun owners, I posted this comment to the Second Amendment forum at RonPaulForums.com.
“Mark Dice had a fake dispute with Alex Jones in order to attract former and skeptical followers of Alex Jones in order to keep people chasing ghosts and not organizing effectively.
His petitions are part of a demoralization campaign and designed to make petitions look invalid in case there ever is a petition put together about a serious issue that millions of Americans sign.“
Here are some insightful comments by other commenters:
“I disagree that these people are dumb. There is some psychology behind getting the power of suggestion by putting people on the spot that aren’t accustomed to dealing with it. Mark Dice understands this, which is how he can make these videos. He also knows people like to pass these videos around so they can make fun of the people in them. Same reason people like to watch reality TV and celebrity trainwrecks. Somehow makes them feel better about their own lives.“
“I have a problem with Dice’s method. Sure there are plenty of idiots out there but he’s editing out any pro-freedom responses. There was a video posted here not long ago that “proved” college students oppose Obamacare in the same way. I wish I could find it but searching anything obamacare on the forum isn’t easy. Everyone had the same opinion. Mark Dice is a fear monger and his videos are not accurate.“
