Socialism is the gradual and less violent form of communism, and socialist is the project of the European Union, which was born in Maastricht in 1992. The intent was to save socialism in Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the predictable bankruptcy of the welfare state in the west, as well. -Vladimir Bukovsky
I don't even want to look back at my life. Because they led us, yes, they led me. They said turn left, and I turned left. They said to the right, I turned right. I practically didn't have my own brain. If I let out a thought, I was afraid that I would be punished for that thought. -Tatiana Vorontsova, Russian Housewife
I have a friend in Pennsylvania who watches Fox News in order to see just what propaganda they're selling each day. He then goes on the chat boards and yanks their chains by sending emails which counter their claims and expose the truth. What a great way to spend some retirement time as well as educate the dolts who still believe Fox News is a conservative news station. Think I'm stretching the truth? Tell me then what you think about the fact that Fox News has been one of Hillary Clinton's largest supporters for over two decades.
From Michael Lofti's article on Ben Swann's site comes this statement, "To many, it seems contrary to intuition that Fox News could be one of the Clinton family's largest donors for the better part of two decades. Check your intuition at the door. It's true. According to Federal Election Commission and Open Secrets' Center for Responsive Politics data, 21st Century Fox News Corp. has donated more than $3 million to Clinton family accounts. Overall, this lands Fox as the Clinton family's 9th largest donor over the course of the family's political involvement."
Certainly not a pretty thought, especially knowing Hillary is a Saul Alinsky student and fan and corresponded with him quite often in her early years. Add to this fact that Fox News and WSJ owner Rupert Murdoch is a CFR member and his partner who owns 7% of same is Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. So, is Fox News conservative? Not by a long shot.
As for me, I don't watch or listen to Fox News, and when I want to escape from the wretchedness of our disintegrating Republic, I turn on the boob tube and watch what the socialist writers are up to with the various programs.
The Good Wife
One of the most popular shows on television today is Sunday night's, The Good Wife with Julianna Margulies, Christina Baranski, Archie Panjabi, and Matt Czuchry. Several weeks ago, the star of the show, Julianna Margulies, who plays Alicia Florrick, wife of the Illinois governor, played by Chris Noth, was contemplating running for state attorney general on the show. So guess who they featured? Valerie Jarrett, phoning her and urging her to run. Iran born Valerie Jarrett is the assistant to Barack Hussein Obama, and most believe the co-president, having closer advisory relations to the president than wife, Michelle.
The following week, they featured none other than leftist political activist, Gloria Steinem who was likewise urging the star of the show, "Alicia Florrick," to run for state attorney general. The Good Wife, Alicia, is an atheist, but now that she's running for attorney general, she has to go on camera and state that she's "searching," rather than stating the truth that she's not a believer in God. So her campaign manager shows her clips of two politicians who were making similar statements prior to elections. First was neo-con Trotskyite Illinois Republican Senator Mark Kirk, who was making a statement about his alleged faith after his 2012 stroke. Then they drag in far left Democrat, New York Senator Charles Shumer to talk about his faith and his love of his local synagogue. I can't wait to see what leftist commie they feature next on this program.
Of course, every program today has a lesbian or gay couple, and they're pushing the envelope with the sexual scenes. Archie Panjabi plays Kalinda Sharma, the investigator for the Florrick/Argos law firm on The Good Wife. Kalinda is bi-sexual, and they show sexual scenes of her with various women. Personally, I really don't care what people do in their own bedrooms, and I'm certainly not going to point a finger and scream "sinner!" That kind of attitude never wins anyone to God, but I feel these programs truly are going overboard with the homosexual partners on all programs. It really is "in your face."
If the popularity and propaganda of The Good Wife isn't enough, then tune in to Friday night's popular Blue Bloods featuring Tom Selleck as New York's police commissioner. In the program, he is a widower with four children, one having been a police officer who was killed. The Blue Bloods' family gathers every Sunday at "Dad's house," for dinner with the entire family and grandchildren. The cast includes Donnie Wahlberg as one son who plays New York police Detective Danny Reagan. Will Estes plays the younger son, as policeman Jamie Reagan.
The daughter is played by Bridget Moynahan, who is the assistant district attorney, Erin Reagan, and has a daughter who is soon going to college. The daughter, Nicky, is played by Sami Gayle. In the August 24, 2014 show, mother Erin Reagan finds out from the Rutgers University's review director that her daughter Nicky will not get into Rutgers because she has tweeted a negative comment about one of her high school teachers. Of course, mother Erin takes daughter Nicky to the teacher to apologize, even though the daughter has explained that the teacher is a witch on wheels. When they are in the classroom with this teacher, displayed prominently on the wall is a picture of Argentine Marxist revolutionary, Che Guevara, a major figure in the Cuban Revolution to communism under Castro. The teacher is pompous, arrogant, and argumentative, and the mother Erin, agrees with the daughter, but tells her not to ever tweet about a teacher again.
Years ago, my husband and I turned off Law and Order's SVU with Mariska Hartigay because every weekly show was so slanted to leftist and PC propaganda that we could no longer stand viewing the program. So, why are all the popular shows inundated with leftist propaganda?
Writers Guild of America Strike of 2008
Back in '08, my husband was still receiving US News and World Report Magazine, before he cancelled it for being too leftist. In the back of the magazine, in a two inch article, it stated that the recent Writers Guild strike was all about the writers wanting to be able to promote more of their socialist agenda in their scripts. The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the proposed contract worked out between the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) and WGA negotiators ended after 100 days, but what the public got from it was hardly what we expected.
From the communist World Socialist Web Site (WSWS) article of February 15, 2008, comes this report. Also note the communist ISSE:
World Socialist Web Site Arts Editor David Walsh spoke to a varied group of students, writers, supporters, and others at the University of California at Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 13. Sponsored by the UCLA chapter of the International Students for Social Equality (ISSE), the meeting centered on the 100-day strike by members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the proposed contract worked out between the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) and WGA negotiators.
"How is that going to change?" asked Walsh. He insisted that objective events would play the decisive role but also that writers had to once again take up the question of socialism.
"A socialist element has to emerge in the film and television industry, which consciously fights for the unity of workers in this industry and workers globally on a program aimed at radically altering economic and political life," said Walsh.
He continued: "The development of a more critical and self-critical, socialistically minded community of writers, actors, directors and others in Hollywood is a decisive question, both artistically and politically. The ideological atmosphere of the last several decades has not been conducive to complex, genuinely realistic, compassionate, committed work. Everything backward and selfish has been encouraged to the detriment of the film and television industry."
"A different social situation, above all, the emergence of the working class in open opposition to the present order, will do a great deal to improve the climate, to scatter the clouds of skepticism and pessimism which cover the horizon of mankind, as Trotsky once put it."
So, there you have it. The socialist/communist agenda is alive and well in the propaganda of today's television programs, movies, and plays. Without the knowledge of history and truth about communism, today's poorly educated youth are fair game for this foul propaganda. What is not told by these writers is what communism and collectivism really is and what it will do to a free society.
First, it advocates the elimination of private property. In a communist society/nation, the goods are owned in "common" and are available to all as needed. It is a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. It is a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production. The final stage of society in Marxist theory is when the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably, where we all become equal—no one higher or lower, no one richer or poorer, no one smarter or dumber, all the same.
Communism in our White House
In the January, 2011, New American article entitled, Communist Propaganda Song Performed at White House:
Chinese pianist Lang Lang performed last week at the White House banquet in honor of Chinese President Hu Jintao. An aspect of that state dinner which has been ignored by the mainstream media is the background, connections, and character not only of Lang, but also of the song that he chose to perform in the presence of the President of the United States.
Lang played and sang the anthem "My Motherland," the theme song from Battle on Shangangling Mountain, a Communist Chinese propaganda film attacking America and elevating the People's Republic of China's nationalist spirit — in the White House, in the presence of President Obama. The president complicity smiled along as Lang glorified Red China while damning America, just as Obama's (former) pastor, Dr. Jeremiah Wright, has in the past invoked damnation upon America.
What has gone largely unreported in the mainstream media is that the film from which Lang borrowed his song, produced by the nascent Communist PRC government in 1956, focuses on attacking America and her struggle against communist aggression in the Korean War. The movie depicts the Battle of Triangle Hill in present-day North Korea, and follows a cadre of People's Volunteer Army soldiers who steadfastly fight against the U.S. Air Force for control of the area, celebrating their defeat of the United States and the communist victory in the battle, as well as the communist success in capturing North Korea. Both the movie and the song, "My Motherland," are celebrated in the PRC-issued history text History of War to Resist America and Aid Korea, Volume III, published by the state-run Chinese Military Science Academy.
Think it's not here? It's everywhere. Communism is being fed to our children in government schools, on TV, on websites, in politics, in violent video games, in magazines, in textbooks, in every facet of our society. The ten planks of the Communist Manifesto have been in America for a long time now. Whether or not America's people finally wake up and smell the rot is questionable. So for those of us who know the truth, we had better be sharing it with everyone, and praying to God for reprieve, because time is running very short. May the Lord have mercy on His own.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
