Lemmings the lot of them. To think that these people believe that conservatives can't think for themselves.

This is what they call the "Human Microphone"

However, this tactic is also known as indoctrination. This is used by propagandists to control the masses. examples of this form of indoctrination can be found at the Nuremburg rallies, cult meetings, oath swearings, WWE wrestling, and yes even the US military. "What makes the green grass grow??", just ask any Marine from past or present, you will get the same answer.

By mindlessly repeating what the speaker is saying, one is beginning to internalize the message without critical thinking. This tactic allows the individual to become one with the mob.

I'm beginning to see this as a disturbing development.

Just to add, this human microphone tactic is not isolated to Atlanta, it was also happening here in Grand Rapids, MI.

A small excerpt from a paper on the Maoist Revolution

Indoctrination in Rebel Recruitment: A Mechanism for Mass
Mobilization

Social-psychological explanations are also helpful to understanding the success of political
education as a recruitment strategy. The Maoist rhetoric at indoctrination sessions often had a
powerful effect on the local populace, who were little used to being addressed by politicians of
any sort. Interviews with villagers during the conflict suggest that simply addressing and
engaging villagers had a profound effect, “many villagers spoke of their sense of incredulity that
such brave and powerful individuals should come to speak with them, ask their opinions on
weighty issues, and address them with respect”.
70
By addressing the villagers, discussing their
problems, and requesting their assistance, the Maoists encouraged the villagers to be active
political agents, a radical change from villagers’ previous experiences of marginalization.
Schneiderman and Turin elaborate, “…villagers felt that they were empowered agents shaping
and creating their country’s destiny, not passive spectators watching from the political
sidelines”.

The interesting thing is the speaker had a microphone and a megaphone. There was no need for the repetition except to internalize a group mind.

Edited to add:

I saw the DUmp thread on it and one poster keeps repeating the same thing:




Cal Carpenter
17. It was the middle of General Assembly

In reality, they are trying to stay on topic and get through their agenda.

No one's voice is more important than another's. If he isn't on topic to the issue being discussed, then he shouldn't be able to speak at GA.

John Lewis's voice could have been incredibly important and certainly more important than the idiot with a megaphone.

Generally, Lewis has nothing important to say, but the DUmpster is saying that nobody can ever stand out from the crowd. Got a new idea? Solved a problem that's stymied the majority? Sit down and shut up. It's imbecilic conformity, taken to the logical extreme. On the plus side, Lewis probably expected a sympathetic crowd of fellow radicals, and didn't expect to be shouted down.

My goodness ...

These people are ... these people are ... not just mindless robots ... not just mindless robots ...

but potentially dangerous, if their numbers are allowed to grow!

"Useful Idiots" indeed.

Elspeth was correct :

This "rabble-rousing" ... and it truly is just that, is really starting to become worrisome.

Mentally, they are already in an intellectual cesspool, so occupying a porta potty is quite apropos. I think that it was someone at National Review who summed these clowns up with this chant:

When do we want it?

NOW!!!

What do we want?

We should point out this omission to them. They will insist on their right to go there and we would be forced to provide transportation.............:)

Zombie training? OWS Atlanta turns into collective hypnosis 'one voice' weirdness

Occupy Wall Street protesters are undergoing collectivist zombie training in Atlanta, where a large group was caught on film engaging in a weird sort of "one voice" hypnotic chanting ritual that characterizes the key principles of both Communism and Socialism.

Having an extensive background in studying linguistics and human psychology, I recognize mass hypnosis when I see it. The mind-numbing call-and-return vocalizations captured in this video reflect the same kind of mind control techniques used in cults, sporting events and even some church revival events. The whole point of this experience is to eliminate the individual mind and train everyone to think, and say, and do exactly what they are told to do by a "leaderless leader" who is really a mind control manipulator...

The author actually puts a portion of the video transcript. Really interesting:

OWS: Are Mindless Americans Falling Prey to the New Revolution Business and Its Collectivist Trap?
October 12, 2011

By Patrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire
October 13, 2011

A disturbing new trend has quietly taken hold over simultaneous nationwide protests in the United States over the last few weeks.

Visible throughout the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests, is a technique dubbed as “The People’s Microphone”. It has been deployed nationwide, and is fast becoming the dominant vehicle for group interaction and communication. So what is it?

Advocates of this new method claim that it is a work-around to restrictive city ordinances, serving as a ‘progressive communication’ tool which allows groups to speak and achieve “community consensus”, where the audience is asked to listen in a whole new way and to actually help transmit the message to others. They will tell you that accuracy and transparency are crucial elements of the People’s Microphone.

NLP device: the ‘call-and-return’ and technique

OWS’s new People’s Microphone is quite simply a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) application or technique. Its consensus arrival method, also known as “call-and-return”, has now become the audio device of choice- spreading across the country as quickly as the protests themselves.

Crowd participants slowly repeat each phrase the leading speaker is saying to them, with a series of hand signs used to provide the speaker and the group with feedback.

To the casual observer, this new system of communication may appear as compelling as it is metaphoric. It might also remind you of the infamous ‘pass the conch’ scene from the Nobel Prize-winning novel by William Golding, Lord of the Flies.

It is a very slow and tedious process, often resulting in very few actual issues being fleshed out. In most cases, it takes triple the amount of time to convey the same amount of information that a normal speaker would accomplish by talking directly to the audience. But ‘call-and-return’ can only be done when the group is forced to repeat the words of the speaker, so the speaker is forced to talk slowly, using fewer words at once. In this way, it is also a mesmerizing and extremely hypnotic group communication tool.

Such NLP methods can also be used to promote ‘group-think’ and would be described by some as collectivist mind control education at its very finest.

Successful NLP systems like this are commonly used in the military, by sales people in business, as well as in advertising and of course in politics, always working in restricted bloc of words, and often with restricted vocabularies.

Group moderators insist that this is done so that ‘everybody is safe’, and that the group is ‘doing things properly’. Any interaction with a speaker can only be done by employing a series of parochial, child-like hand-signs, normally reserved for children attending school in K-8 grades.

Participants insist that by using this method they get a feeling of ‘being part of the community’, where group leaders will ask the crowd for a ‘temperature check’ in order to determine “how ‘the bloc’ feels about what someone has said”, and if what someone is in consensus with “the bloc”. The audience will offer up a hand signal of waiving both hands to show their approval. Once a consensus is identified, it’s typical that members of “the bloc” will feel that they are part of the collective, and thus, “part of the change”.

Unfortunately, in this type of system most of the group have little idea of what they are actually repeating, or who and what they are supporting with their hand signals, waving their hands, or making a triangle sign to communicate.

Watch as the speaker in the following video explains to his ‘bloc’ that their ‘collective’ will be banning any applause because the clapping of hands might drown out someone within the collective who is trying to be heard. See this unfold in the bizarre Occupy Atlanta video below:

In the end, Occupy Atlanta organizers and the group became so enthralled with their People’s Microphone that Congressman and civil rights hero John Lewis was not allowed an opportunity to speak to ‘the collective’. The ‘process’ eventually sent the Congressman packing.

This NLP ‘call-and-repeat’ mechanism can no doubt be used to hypnotic effect. Often these type of techniques are used in order to filter out the free thinkers, where intense self-policing at its most stringent. Notice that when group members are disagreeing, their hands are much lower, but at their maximum when ‘the bloc’ seems to all be in agreement.

What these protestors are hardly aware of, is that they may be participating a form of modern day group-think. It is a form of social control whereby everyone in the group believes that they must all agree and must all be of the same mind. Armed with this powerful new tool, professional consensus promoters can be bussed into sites around the country, training groups to chant key group-think talking points using various mnemonic phrases......
