Speaking of Paid Shills

Frank Luntz, who specializes in “testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate,” speaks frankly about his association with Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Gun control advocates have used these polling tactics time and time again, trying to convince politicians there will be no price to pay for voting their agenda, and time and time again, we’ve proved them wrong. Why? Because most of these people don’t really get the consequences of many of these policies until they are enacted, and when they find out, they get angry, and if there’s one thing we’re good at, it’s channeling that anger towards politicians on election day.

  1. Using Luntz as an “objective” source is the same as using any other media source as a objective source. He will get the results you pay for. That’s his whole premise on how language is used.

  2. When you ask some of these questions, people who aren’t deep in to the issue will agree. Then when you spell out how the consequences affect them, the answer will change.

    1. It is one of the oldest gun-control schemes in use, the bait and switch. Because gun-control can’t win a fair fight, they have to use deception to advance their agenda.
