This is the first paragraph of an email from Bill Ivey to John Podesta, which was among a Wikileaks release this week, as first reported by Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson here.
Bill Ivey is a well-connected Democrat with a capital "D." According to his bio at his website, titled, Global Cultural Strategies, this folklore scholar and "experienced non profit executive" served as Bill Clinton's NEA director from 1998-2001, is a trustee for the Center for American Progress, and was a "Team Leader in the Barack Obama presidential transition."
John Podesta, of course, is chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
Ivey's email to Podesta was written on March 13, 2016. Regarding the unexpected and surging popularity of Donald Trump and his "hare-brained ideas," which are resonating amid "free-floating discontent," Ivey is anxious:
How does this get handled in the general? Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump-Kardashian mode; what can she do to offset this? I'm certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy once the conventions are over but I think not.
At the same time, however, he doesn't really think that's a saving grace for Hillary.
Here is where things get fascinating in a truly horrifying way.
And as I've mentioned, we've all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce a compliant and unaware citizenry.
The unawareness remains strong, but compliance is obviously fading rapidly.
This problem demands some serious, serious thinking -- and not just poll-driven, demographically-inspired messaging. (Emphasis added.)
First of all, what does Ivey mean by their having "[conspired] to produce a compliant and unaware citizenry"? Is he speaking ironically? Is he in any way on the level?
"The unawareness remains strong," he writes, perhaps explaining to himself how it is so many GOP voters were sold on Trump's "hare-brained ideas," "but compliance is obviously fading rapidly."
In other words, GOP voters were not compliantly selecting a preferred candidate.
Ivey's frustration and alarm is underscored in the next line: "This problem demands some serious, serious thinking."
The rapidly fading compliance of US citizens can only be a "problem" for overlords and monsters.
It is chiling to find that they really talk that way -- about us.
Ivey continues, writing:
Rubio's press conference yesterday AM was good and should be repeated in its entirety, not just in nibbles.
I have listened to Rubio's presser again -- 13 minutes of the FL Senator mainly blaming Donald Trump's rhetoric for the coalition of organized Leftist mobs that earlier shut down Trump's rally in Chicago in March 2016.
Now we know the code: "good" = compliant.
What do they have in store for us?
I hope we don't find out.
