Hearts And  Minds

Hearts And  Minds is a term used by Gerald Templer in February 1952. He was a British General Officer talking about the Guerrilla war in Malaya as a technique to gain sympathy. The Americans used it subsequently in  Vietnam during their war against the Viet Cong. It was relevant then and relevant now.

Socialism is prone to begin with hearts, with sympathy for the less fortunate, with Altruism then become Pathological Altruism, hatred of the fortunate, the undeserving, the Capitalist Swine of the world. Take the hearts then pervert the minds. There are those who are more than willing to use our better instincts for their own advantage, as weapons against us. It is Culture War waged against Western Civilization. The perpetrators are the Enemy Within.

The point of Hearts And  Minds operations is to win over the people of the area. The rationale of the current attackers, that is Jews, in particular Zionist crazies is to break our confidence in ourselves and our essential decency.

Infiltrating the Education industry and the Main Stream Media to turn them into hostile Propaganda machines is one major technique. Telling the young that we oppressed Blacks, that we were Slave masters is lying but then propaganda is about perverting the truth.  Louis Farrakhan, who runs the Nation of Islam, an all black operation  tells the world that the slave traders were Jews. He does not merely say so he has a book called the Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews which proves it. Why is it secret? Because Jews control communications, the media.

It makes it easy for them to market Black Hate and, what is more corrosive, White Guilt. Following it up with a monstrous flood of Third World aliens to overwhelm England, America, European & other white countries to create Trojan Horses, Ethnic Fouling followed by Genocide is the modus operandi. It is succeeding. Of course they don't do these things in Israel because they are grossly Racist.

Hearts And  Minds ex Wiki
Hearts and Minds (Vietnam) or winning hearts and minds refers to the strategy and programs used by the governments of South Vietnam and the United States during the Vietnam War to win the popular support of the Vietnamese people and to help defeat the Viet Cong insurgency. Pacification is the more formal term for winning hearts and minds. Military, political, economic, and social means were used to attempt to establish or reestablish South Vietnamese government control over rural areas and people under the influence of the Viet Cong. Some progress was made in the 1967-1971 period by the joint military-civilian organization called CORDS, but the character of the war changed from an insurgency to a conventional war between the armies of South and North Vietnam. North Vietnam won in 1975.

Pacification or hearts and minds objectives were often in diametric opposition to the strategy of firepower, mobility, and attrition pursued by the U.S. from 1965 to 1968. Rather than the search and destroy strategy the U.S. followed during those years, hearts and minds had the priority of "hold and protect" the rural population and thereby gain its support for the government of South Vietnam.

Malayan Emergency
The phrase "hearts and minds" was first used in the context of counter-insurgency warfare by British General Gerald Templer in February 1952. Speaking of the conflict known as the Malayan Emergency, Templer said that victory in the war "lies not in pouring more soldiers into the jungle, but in the hearts and minds of the Malayan people."[1] The British in Malaysia, in addition to military actions against the communist guerrillas undertook a number of social and economic programs to protect the populace, isolate the rural population to reduce their supply and support of the insurgents, gather intelligence about the insurgents' organization and plans, and ensure that government services were provided to rural dwellers.[2]

British action and policy in defeating the Malayan counter-insurgency became a paradigm for future struggles with insurgents, including the U.S. war in Vietnam. Critics have stated that the Malayan emergency was much simpler to combat than many insurgencies and that the impact of hearts and minds programs has often been over-stated - see  Hearts and Minds Malayan campaign re-evaluated - the writer makes sense but his views are less applicable to England or Europe.
