Melania also said.. "he will never give up and he will never, never let you down"





Quote:Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down

Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

This was intentional. Meme genius.

Remember when I talk about the cultural war, we have to look at every detail of this convention.

Lets look and examine the stage design.

Is futuristic, clean, something like a spaceship, also looks like a big gate door (border wall), the slogan Make America Grate Again with gold around the letters (gold=money make America rich again) behind the screen of the speaker with the American flag and the names of the 50 state in it, the stage podium itself has light on it, the podium looks like a panel Tony Stark would design, or something out of the Starship Enterprise, every step of the stair has lights and so does the floor around it, most of the light is coming from the stage itself.. The stage also is designed taller this time in comparison to the floor audience, making whoever is on the podium looks more dominant. The pointed ends at the top look like aiming to the sky (dominant gesture)

Now lets compare and examine previews years.

2012

[Image: 600x4113.jpg]


Smaller in comparison in every aspect, 90% wood, why? wood is dark and is mostly associated with burning, too many stairs making the stage floor smaller, the screens in the background are not symmetric, the speaker in on the side of the stage screen rather than the center (the human brains is more comfortable with symmetric images than asymmetric ones), not using the big screen in the center to display the speaker and all other screens are display nothing but a single color red or blue (wasted of resource), all the light is coming from the top making the the stage looks darker in comparison with the surrounding. Why have the "Republican National Convention 2012" on display? people already know why and what for they are there, they do not need to be remembered that. The flags are too close to the floor (not patriotic and lack of respect for the country). The podium looks out of a High school graduation, why that other peace of wood next to the podium? water? again creating asymmetric thing for the brain. Desk of 3 people on the stage (the establishment old guard, the elite republicans) it distract attention from whoever is speaking, also empty chairs give the impression they did not want to show up.

2008

[Image: RNC.jpg]


The entire stage is a goddam stair, not American flag in sight ( again not patriotic and lack of respect for the country). One single big screen (lack of creativity), why the screen looks like a big T? is this a screen borrowed from Time Square Forever 21 store? again high school podium made of wood, peace of wood next to the podium (symmetric, remember?). The doors people are walking from behind are too visible. The stage floor is too low in comparison to the floor audience (not dominant position for whoever is on stage).

Besides the screen, what else is on stage design? absolutely nothing.

I don't know if Trump was involved in the plans for the convention but sure they really hit the cultural war with this stage, many people will say it doe not matter but in cultural war every details matters, is called iconography and branding and Trump is a master on both. In fact the stage looks like something MTV or Billboard will design for wards.

Trump parks his plane in the background of his rallies and let the door open at airports for the same reason, iconography and branding

The phrasing is so generic anyone could've written it, and anyone might write it without ever seeing Michelle flap her gums. (Number of speeches I've seen by Michelle: 0. I have used similar phrases plenty of times.) It's not exactly Kipling, or a discourse on surfing and waves.

As copying or "plagiarizing" goes, this is some seriously mild sauce soft shell taco weak generic stuff to get riled up about. "Have values, work hard and you can achieve anything you want if you just work hard enough!" is like Generic American Speech #17, it could've been said word for word from any random person in the US without any preparation.

Awkward that Trump campaign copied it word for word, could've easily just rephrased it, but if anybody thinks THAT is the killing blow that will bring down the Trump train, then those people are really desperate and grasping at straws.

Yep. I don't know if the plagiarism thing was intentional or not but without a doubt in my mind this rick roll was intentional. Exact word for word quote. Genius.

1. I would have children with Melania. My God does that woman ooze feminine elegant sex appeal.

2. Roosh and the RVF crew are my heroes going out trolling all the retards. I wish I was there. You must all be having a fantastic time!

3. Some of the speakers tonight were really poor. That black senator/senator candidate Colorado guy and Flynn seemed really off from what I could hear in the background. But who cares.

Melania both Rick-Rolled the nation and, more importantly --

Said the same words Michelle did. However, with considerably less upper-arm flab.

100% spot on Latinopan.

Watching Trump's entrance and reading through your analysis has solidified my belief that we are watching a master at work here. Not only has he convinced everyone watching that if they vote for him they're going with the winner this time, we're convinced by the end of his entrance on stage that he's already won.

Your point about the different stages and their effect on the visuals is absolutely essential to understanding what's going on here. The first thing that jumped out to me about the stage today was that it had an award ceremony vibe to it.


What's the big thing with award ceremonys? Achievement, Talent, Admiration, Winning.


Then I watched his entrance and I was floored. He uses "We are the champions" by Queen, a song that is universally known throughout pop culture to introduce himself. A song so widely used in pop culture as the cathartic afterglow to a triumph.


What's the song all about? Hard work, Determination, Winning.


Trump doesn't just shamble onto the stage either. First you see his silhouette and then he slowly and with deliberation (while clapping!) walks towards the now rising podium. It was like watching the entrance of a wrestler, drenched with a theatrical feel. Can you imagine if that was Kasich? Or Jeb? Or god forbid it was Christie's silhouette that we saw?
And then Trump starts to speak and what are the first words out of his mouth?

"Thank you everybody, thank you, we love you, thank you very much...Oh we're gonna win, we're gonna win so big."

Not only is Trump up on a stage like he's at the Oscars accepting an award, he has a wrestlers entrance set to the most well known song associated with winning. What's that on the screen behind him? Oh it's just pictures of all his supporters and his name and the word America as we hear "..champions....of the world!". Oh and if that wasn't enough, his first words even sound like he's accepting an award and thanking the academy.

Trump adds a dash of NLP at the end too. What are we all thinking after watching his entrance?


Talented, Victory, Triumph, Winning.

That bit where Roosh turns the camera around during the "rapist!" chant, and grins with them chanting in the background, had me in stitches. That's the perfect response, and that's why they only chanted briefly -- it wasn't having the effect they wanted.

^ What a buncha losers SJWs and lesbo femicunts!

At least they didn't behave violent like the Canadian SJW.

It was a shame that the blond chick was deprived of cocky most of her college life that she behaved Islamophobic to Roosh...She told Roosh to go back to the Middle East; a statement which reeks of xenophobia and racism from cis-gender white womenz who support Hillary Clinton.

It is damn surprising how Roosh came out of that mob alive, because if he was in Canada, such mobs would have been very violent, and police wouldn't even care if Roosh was bleeding to death from a stab wound, and instead, they will make news reports from CBC congratulating feminists in Canada for murdering Roosh.

Viol is the French word for "Rape"....Feminists and SJWs sometimes exercise threats of VIOLence, but because the Second Amendment and police rule of law were enforced in the Rally, these SJWs were damn calm compared to the Canadian and Australian feminist groups..They can only shout "Rapist" like fools because they know that they ain't gonna fight armed men in the presence of state police who uphold the rule of law.

I knew this was coming.

They were never going to allow an attractive, feminine woman that speaks in a foreign accent get away with anything.

Regardless, I'm not sure if this was a deliberate troll. The media was going to cover it no matter what. It was too big to ignore. It seems like a mistake to me and someone's head is probably going to roll. Though the whole "comparing first ladies side by side" thing is interesting. I'm sure Scott Adams will weigh in. Edit: He already appears to be saying it was a mistake. https://twitter.com/ScottAdamsSays/statu...5919993857

I don't think General Flynn did bad. He was feeding off the energy of the crowd. The biggest problem last night was that it should have ended with Melania.

Melania was obviously the headliner and the main event. She should have closed the show. Everyone that came after her was going to pale in comparison just because the tension was released, aside from the hour getting late. It was also bad optics that Trump left his own convention while General Flynn (a top surrogate of his) and others were still speaking. That was bad organization, period. This is Trump's biggest problem. Too much of an ENTP.

Also, I would begin the "upper card" of prime time speakers an hour earlier. That way it ends an hour earlier. No one really wants to stay up to midnight watching this thing.

I can't see how this is an elaborate troll on Trump's part, although I did hear some assume the sale type of language coming from presenters in what little coverage I've seen. Mentioning how Melania lifted words from 'another' First Lady, and things like that. The side by side comparison does look bad, but the phrases are so generic that nobody outside media pundits will give a shit.

It gives them the out they were looking for to drown out the fact that she executed it in an impressive manner befitting of the First Lady, but anyone who actually saw it or sits down to watch the whole thing later won't be bothered so much. The plus side is that there are a whole new round of speeches tonight, meaning the media will only have 12 hours or so to whip up a frenzy. I expect Christie, Carson, and particularly Don Jr. to be extremely strong tonight, and give enough soundbites to wash away the stink from last night.
