Why do 1P5 Skojec and Francis use Name-calling Propaganda?

I always find One Peter Five publisher Steve Skojec's Tweets hilarious. He has refined the comic use of name-calling to a fine art.

Anyone who knows the people who he name-calls knows the absurdity of his wildly unreasonable and ridiculous smears.

But, he isn't doing it for its humorous effect and for my merriment. Although, I want thank him and his Tweets for lighting up many of my days with laughter.

Sadly, Skojec is pathetically deadly serious in his poisonous name-calling propaganda.

Why does he do it?

Wikipedia's post on "Name calling" explains why he, Francis and Team Francis apparently use this propaganda technique:

"Name calling is a cognitive bias and a technique to promote propaganda. Propagandists use the name-calling technique to invoke fear in those exposed to the propaganda, resulting in the formation of a negative opinion about a person, group, or set of beliefs or ideas."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate of Mary.

The problem with name calling is that in countries like Italy, to imply that someone is not of sound mind, is calumny and punishable with severe sentences and financial penalties. Maybe those who name call should speak to an attorney and get some advice, before posting name callings on social media where they can be read in every jurisdiction and lead to consequences that they do not envision. Just saying...
