When Agree & Amplify Goes Wrong

After getting trolled hard to his face by a couple of young huwhite shitlords and smarting from it so badly he took to Twatter to express his indifference to it all, Silicon Valley actor Thomas Middleditch attempted the Agree & Amplify game maneuver to save face. It didn’t work.

If you say so, Tommy.

Agree & Amplify is a powerful Game rhetorical tactic, but it has a limit on its usefulness as a verbal reframing tool. Two hard ceilings on the wide-ranging applicability of A&A are

  1. its inability to neuter thermonuclear insults
  2. sloppy execution

Tommy Boy ran into both of these limits. “CUCK” is an insult so powerful, aimed straight at a manlet’s sexual worth, that even advanced level evasive sophistry won’t redirect its devastating payload to the sender. It’s like calling a man a loser, or a woman a fatty….it’s next to impossible to formulate an effective (read: crowd-pleasing) comeback from those shivs if the insult is based on readily apparent characteristics of the person getting insulted.

Second, execution matters. If there is a way to A&A a charge of cuckery, Tommy didn’t do it here. Coming back from “cuck” requires a much nimbler tongue than the butthurt try-hard reply, “I’m totally cuck. Proud of it.” If someone called you a fag, would it help your cause to retort, “I’m totally faggy. Proud of it. Wouldn’t want it any other way”?

The tightest Game means being ready for any exigency of the field, and since I’m feeling magnanimous I’ll offer Tommy a better reply to someone calling him a cuck (which will happen again for him soon, I’m sure). “Your wife didn’t think so. Neither did your mom.”

  2. Speaking of Cucks, some Cuckstians have come out and opined how they don’t want Steve Bannon to be Trump’s Chief Strategist because he’s related to the Alt-Right, and the Alt-Right came at them back February. Oh and they have two white blonde daughters and two adopted niglets.

    How long after these little blondies have their first blood are they impregnated by one of the moolies? How long before mom is impregnated by her black boyfriend?

    • I see a subtle relaxed shift of weight on the woman’s left foot and a turn away from the Cuck. A slight narrowing of her eyes indicating dominance. A slight widening of his eyes indicating that he’s just along for the ride. His shirt pulled tight and buttoned up coupled with his elbow in shows that he’s trying not to take up too much room. Blonde woman is in charge. Cuck will kill himself within a couple years.

    “Dude I’m Canadian, of course I’m a cuck.” It makes my stomach uneasy to read this spoiled elitist sell out for the Kumail Nanjianis of the world. By the way I’m not sure Nanjiani is a “cuck”. He’s a third world usurper who will use SJW logic to benefit fellow Pakistanis – regardless of the fact that they’re liable to want to kill him for his atheist views.

    SJW logic is ironically a suicide ideology for most SJWs

    Hence, we have The Trumpening

  5. If you read Scott Adam’s post about blowing your mind and his link to the Ted talk about the nature of reality, you get why this cuck’s ploy does not work.

    the TL;DR version is – our perception of reality is geared towards us procreating NOT objective factual representation.

    OR your words and actions are interpreted according to the audience’s gender.

    Agree and Amplify is a tactic used in seduction of Women. If one were to A&A to a man it’s affect is different. We live in a world where feminism has trained the “educated” to think men and women are rationally equal. Any PUA can tell you that that assumption is flawed due to the success of Game Principles.

    One can see the success of Persuasion world view vs. factual gender neutral world view in the last Presidential Election. All factual rational reasoning would indicate a Killary landslide. But that is not what happened. What did happen is that a whole lot of women did not buy into the “sisterhood” notion that a Killary Presidency would be good for the longevity of their offspring. The rejected the rational Grrl Power logic so much that liberal media types are just melting into a puddle of goo trying to rationalize the irrational.

    Bottom line – Killary depended on the logical reasoning of her fellow American women and lost. In other words Secretary Clinton made a rational argument to an irrational woman’s psyche and we can lol at the results!

  10. A&A done correctly:
    (Trump 60 minutes interview)

    “Lesley Stahl: One of the issues that has come up in the campaign is your … temperament…

    “Donald Trump: They spent $1 billion against me on the word “Temperament.” It was given by Madison Avenue. And they thought that, by temperament, they could maybe, you know, win the election. Obviously, it didn’t work because we’re here and they’re not. And I think my strongest asset is my temperament because I have a temperament where we win and we’re going to start winning again. We’re going to win on trade, we’re going to win at the borders, we’re going to knock out ISIS.”

    Reframing too, but plenty of amplification. He turns an implied shame label into a pride label. Music to the ears…

  13. I’m (((shakin’ mah haid))) at some of the retorts you young clowns are posting here… stupid puerile comebacks that make you seem as fey as the fool trying to get your goat.

    If some stranger comes up to you with some clown act, give him the steely-eyed missile man eye and tell him

    “You’re gonna look awful funny when I pull your head through your ass and give you an even shittier outlook on life. You’ve got about 3 seconds to start moving, or it’s on.” and then stand up, if you happen to be sitting.

    I guarantee, you’ll either get a “Hey, jes’ kiddin’, bro” attempt at a handshake reconciliation, which you should brush off, or he’ll be high-steppin’ with some snarky remark as he departs.

    Then again, start lifting and carrying yourself so that no stranger would even deign to approach you with such nonsense. Granted, it’s getting more difficult because all the dweebs out there haven’t run into men who believe that words and acts have immediate consequences.
