Do you feel the media is presenting truth to the public?
How Dare He?
Pretty offensive, huh? And some people are called anti-semitic for condemning Netanyahu's policies against the Palestinians....what do you call this? Imagine if this had said the Palestinians are the Jews for Netanyahu's oven? Can you imagine what the reaction would be? Un-freaking-believable.
Well, we all have seen the absolute over-the top behavior of many of the Baggers by now, but there is a reason for it. And it is not equal-opportunity bashing, it is Obama/Democrat specific. Please watch these videos...and I know they are left-wing organization which made them, but please watch and see who these people are listening to--where they get their news from.
This is an organized campaign. It's not just people fed up..it's deliberate mis-information and lies thrown at you meant to sway you to the corporate side. So while you think you are standing up for "freedom", you are being led to the money-makers slaughter! They are using you and playing you for monetary gain.
It's why Fox News was established.
This is a long video, but well worth the watch if you haven't seen it. They should not be rewarded for turning our country into mud-slinging slash and burn discourse.
Fight back with your most powerful weapon: Sanity!

OUTFOXED : Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism
Stop Playing Nice With The GOP Noise Machine (Start Using the "P" Word: Propaganda);http://bit.ly/V5ecaw
"It's not journalism. It's not even partisan opinion journalism. It's proud propaganda. More and more, it's the intentional spreading of rumor and misinformation for political gain. (And often done in conjunction with the Republican Party.) For too long, the press has allowed right-wing players to hide behind the shield of journalism, and then acted surprised when they cut egregious ethical corners."
Antidote to propaganda
Something We Don't Admit
Speaking From Experience
March 16, 2013. Woke up to this story:
"Fox & Friends hosted “high school student” Dalton Glasscock yesterday morning to tug at their Obama-hating viewers' heartstrings with the sad tale about how his spring break trip to Washington, D.C. was ruined by the cancellation of White House tours. But it’s more likely the cancellation actually made his trip, if not his year. What the “we report, you decide” network didn’t mention is that he’s a Republican activist who was also taking part in CPAC. The fact that Glasscock thanked the show for having him on and was given a chance to rattle off his anti-Obama talking points suggested the whole thing was more of a boon than a bust."
Do they never stop? Can there be a fine or something for this? And sheeple will swallow it hook, line, and sinker:
"Oh that poor boy. Why, that dirty,rotten Obama....Humph!"
*sigh*.....Here's a joke:
"What do you get when you mix televison with propaganda?"
answer: Fox news!
Only it's no joke. It's a criminal organization trying to elect criminals to our government, in my opinion.
It's not "funny", it's dangerous.
Fight the Power!
Funny As a Heart Attack
"We have to pretend that the GOP cares about balancing the budget when the first thing the last Republican president did was unbalance it.
We have to pretend that the GOP cares about cutting government spending when they want to grow the defense budget and lower social spending to a unprecedented level just as a record number of Americans are retiring.
We have to pretend that the 2% of climate scientists who don’t think we’re heading to an irreversible, man-made climate catastrophe aren’t almost all funded by an industry that directly profits from carbon pollution.
We have to pretend that the die-hard conservatives who aren’t oil billionaires and still buy the denial of 2% of climate scientists aren’t doing so at of pure spite and skepticism of anything liberals want to do.
We have to pretend that the party that wants to tell women when to give birth and all of us whom we can marry is for smaller government.
We have to to pretend that the GOP might be willing to compromise when the vast majority of elected Republicans who signed Grover Norquist’s pledge that they will never consider asking the rich to pay more no matter what.
We have to pretend that “success” is being punished when almost 100% of the income growth since the recovery began has gone to the richest one percent.
We have to pretend that the corporate profits aren’t at an all-time high and wages as a share of GDP aren’t at a all-time low.
We have to pretend that a vast majority of Americans don’t want the government to create jobs, even if they have spend to do so.
We have to pretend that the big banks — which are bigger now than before they crippled the global economy — aren’t profiting on an implicit taxpayer subsidy that’s basically a payoff for keeping them from crushing the economy again.
We have to pretend that the same exact people who wanted the Iraq War now want a war in Iran based on the exact same premise — preventing the regime from getting nuclear weapons.
We have to pretend that there are two equal, balanced sides on every issue as the middle class disappears and the planet spirals into a completely preventable disaster.
And why do so many Americans do this? Because too many people — especially those in the media — are afraid to say that the party that misled us into war, the party that blew the surplus, the party let rampant mortgage fraud become a global financial crisis isn’t as wrong today as they day George W. Bush ordered troops into Iraq.
And if we can’t make that clear, we’re doomed to the same sorts of avoidable disasters over and over."

"Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham joined O’Reilly to discuss this latest atrocity, and both agreed that the fault belongs to the nation’s “traditional forces,” who aren’t doing enough, in their estimation, to fight back against the rise of secularism and the persecution of religious Christians. It’s a bold statement coming from two people who have a history of being the chief persecutors towards people of other faiths."
For God Sakes!
Yeah the enemy is YOU. Uninformed, unreasoning small minds who are blind to the truth and the facts but glum on to only what they want to hear. Zombies are better company, at least they desire brains.
"We live in interesting times" is often said about our world. Me, I find them blasphemous! No truth, no dignity, only lies and manipulations. It's being done by masters, that I can say....and knowing this should make us more alert. Heads Up people!!
