IT’S ALL PROPAGANDA!
DROWNING IN LIES
By: Al Cronkrite
Propaganda has been pandemic for so long that few Americans recognize that almost everything they see and hear contains at least some element of propaganda.
We watch, listen, and seriously consider the rhetoric and actions that accompany the presidential debates thinking it will help determine which of the candidates is best suited for the position of President of the United States. Actually, the debates are a propaganda tool to help listeners believe their opinions are being considered. With the possible exception of Ron Paul, it is all empty rhetoric that will not be transferred to the eventual office holder whose actions will be dictated by the collective imperialists (CP) who control our world.
The debates themselves are closely controlled by the media which is itself controlled by the same CPs who select the winner who will be voted into office by a process that may also be controlled.
Congressman Ron Paul who offers the only sane plan for the nation is censored by media lackey Wolf Blitzer (Love that name!) who gives the majority of the camera time to candidates the networks favor. The bias is blatant when USA TODAY runs two pictured articles on Newt; nothing on Ron Paul. He has been slighted throughout the campaign and now the serious denigration is beginning. (Read more here.) However, all of this is moot since there are powerful forces above the fray that will dictate policy regardless of the outcome. In the unlikely event that Congressman Paul wins the nomination and is successful in winning the election the hooligans who run the government with the support of many American citizens would stymie his plans.
President Barak Obama was elected on propagandized promises for beneficial change which, following the election, were ignored in favor of a plethora of inimical programs. We are unable to hold elected politicians accountable for promises made during their campaigns and they know it.
No society can remain free without strong critiques of government. The Church and the Fourth Estate should provide these checks. When for self serving reasons they fail and instead become partners despotism is in place. In United States instead of critiquing government the media seeks to brainwash the public into supporting its programs. It censors news that might be critical and slants what it published to support the agenda. Long ago the Christian Church forsook its role as righteous agent and has now fallen into the pit of supporting government as a source of redemption rather than the God to Whom they are beholden.
It is an enduring bit of propaganda that United States citizens can own property. Everything is taxed and the government or predatory lawyers will quickly confiscate the property of owners that fall behind in paying their taxes. As we are seeing in our current economy homeowners who cannot make their mortgage payments find themselves out in the street. When a mortgage encumbers it, control of property is contingent on payments; if the property is not mortgaged, tax payments make it vulnerable. The United States of America does not allow its citizens full control of property.
Many forces are tearing our nation apart: Uncontrolled immigration, multi-culturalism, foreign wars, feminism, homosexuality, Christian suppression, theological manipulation, mainstream immorality, educational dysfunction, corporate mergers, theft of our assets, war on drugs, censorship and distortion of the news, Zionist hegemony, and more.
Now that we have lost our industrial base and entered into a lower standard of living the people who contributed to our problems are urging us to fix them. Tom Brokaw and Piers Morgan talked about what needs to be fixed and about the Republican Presidential debates restricting their discussion to Gingrich and Romney, purposely ignoring Ron Paul. Ron Paul supporters are learning that voting is a farce. Voters do not control our government; control is in the hands of the CPs. Media discussions are always severely propagandized, they never mention that the destruction of our nation was planned and the transfer of wealth to Asia began with the Japanese and has continued with China, India, and Korea. Manufacturing will not return and we will not compete in the world economy until our wage scale falls to equity with low wage nations. Promises to bring prosperity back to America are propaganda.
Blacks and Whites together in advertising and in TV programming lend credence to the benefits of racial integration. Programming that restricts leadership positions to either Women or Blacks denigrates White males. Depicting fathers as dishonest, immoral, bumbling or cruel contributes to the disintegration of the family. Support for our troops results in support for war; so does denigration of Muslims and Islam cultures. Television is rife with all of these propaganda tools.
Wars are preceded by propaganda campaigns that arouse the ire of the American people creating an emotional hate for the target of our armed forces. We learned to hate Germans and Japanese in the 1940s, Communists in the 1950s and 1960s, and now Muslims in the New Century. (Read here.)
History is written by the victors. Recorded history is usually a form of propaganda. True history takes some serious persistent digging and even with that may be inaccessible. It was years beyond formal education that I learned President George Washington was more active as a Mason than he was as a Christian, and that President Lincoln had little personal interest in emancipation but was quick to impose Martial Law and imprison dissenting journalists.
Most American advertising is propaganda. Propaganda is pervasive in all retail pricing.
Banks use propaganda to make their loans seem easy to repay.
Sadly even the Church of Jesus Christ is saturated with propaganda. Pastors woo potential church members with compliments and kindness, they preach sermons that emphasize love and fellowship, they promise healing and offer counseling…all this in spite of the fact that the God of the Bible holds His blessing hostage to obedience and promises punishment for those who dissent. Righteous obedience is as scarce in those who claim to follow Him as it is in those who reject Him.
Propaganda teaches Americans that vows and obedience to the law are easily broken; it teaches us that marriage commitments are as readily evaded as Constitutional law; that fidelity in marriage is trivial; that casual sexual intercourse is routine; and that lesbianism and homosexuality are normal preferences.
We are subtly persuaded by media propaganda that the government is the sole solution to social problems and that passing laws will bring peace and order.
Christian Church leaders, eager to pacify their inflated egos, quickly bought the scourge of Dispensationalism. It is a blasphemous tool that dissolves the obligation of obedience and creates a flaccid Christianity. Dispensationalism is Christian propaganda.
In spite of the fact that there were more Christians slaughtered by Jewish cadre during the Russian Revolution than Jews killed by Der Fuhrer, powerful Zionist Jews have been successful in developing an emotion driven sympathy by convincing the American public that Hitler’s evil attempt to annihilate their race was the only major genocide in history. Failure to present the public with complete coverage of both current and historic news is a malignant form of propaganda.
We go to sleep and wake with media propaganda, our day is consumed by conformance to work place propaganda and we live with the detrimental propaganda of smaller portions, thinner papers, impersonal contacts, and dilatory remedies.
Government propaganda has been so successful that hundreds of thousands of elected officials and government employees have adamantly accepted lies as truth; they passionately believe that our nation is under attack and freedoms must be forsaken. Unfortunately, many of the brain washed minions are obedient citizens not blest with acute discernment, men and women who believe the lies of an evil regime and support it to their own detriment, over and over again.
Jesus said “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life”. Truth brought Him to the Cross. Truth is scarce and dangerous, seldom accepted and regularly crushed.
