Progressives Push Only Their Free Speech And Free Press

I always find it amazing how the Progressives, who are suppose to be moving us forward with progress I think, allow only free speech and free press if it is their free speech or opinions they agree with.  We witnessed this throughout the summer as they attacked Tea Party attendees, shut us out of townhalls and regularly attacked conservative commentators.  Obama seems to have his own version of Woodrow Wilson’s American Protective League on the Progressive side of the aisle.  The mainstream media continues to shill out progressive ideology and attacks on conservatives as they ignore leaked emails that prove global warming to be a farce and ignore the corruption inside of groups like ACORN and even the corruption within the Democrat Party.

The scandals of the century have taken place over the past year.  It has been amazing to watch them all unfold from the previously mentioned ACORN and global warming scandals to the people that are part of the Obama administration like Mao-loving Anita Dunn and Marxist Van Jones.  And which news organization has brought all of this darkness into the light?  FOX News, of course.  There has been a concerted effort to shut down FOX News and now there is a new drive to replace FOX programming.  Marxist website BuzzFlash has started this intiative to stifle free speech and free press.  Here is the pledge they are asking their moonbat followers to take:

I promise to actively work to have FOX “News” replaced with other programming whenever I see it aired. In public settings, I will seek to influence businesses to change the channel. As a BuzzFlash FOX guerilla protestor, I will do my best to decease the growing and pernicious presence in public settings of a television station that undermines American democracy and basic civility.

And their reason for having this kind of drive is:

Take the pledge! Stop the spread of the FOX cancer by getting it turned off in public places: such as pubs, doctor’s offices, airports and restaurants. Become an ambassador to decrease the influence of FOX’s misinformation and propaganda. This is BuzzFlash’s first advocacy project and we need a national guerilla squad of individuals who will join us in various strategies to stop the spread of FOX into public settings. In the coming months, we’ll be advising you on how to ask nicely to change the news channel, leave flyers warning people about FOX “News” damaging brain cells, and many more strategies to come, including a device that can turn TV sets off from up to 50 feet away!

Sounds like a Marxist Utopia to me.  Only let the people hear what we want them to hear.  There can be no freedom for people to make up their own minds.  There can be no fairness and balance, except if we are talking the wealthy, then we need fairness and balance with everybody bordering on poverty so they look to us for all their needs and keep us in power.  Unless you are truly a Marxist, how can you support this kind of behavior?  This is not American.  America is about liberty.  We do not shut down the Marxist.  We let them blather on like the idiots they are – mainly because they dig their own graves.  History proves that only freedom works.  Totalitarian regimes always fall.  Empires crash.  People are starved or slaughtered within Marxism.  Only freedom allows people to be prosperous.  Only freedom allows the opportunity for success.

Net Neutrality Gains Ground

The federal government does not feel it has enough control yet as it absorbs banks, businesses, healthcare and the like and so it is now going after the internet.  Conservatives like myself have been warning for months about the Fairness Doctrine, which would utterly destroy the radio talk show business.  This is basically legislation that would give the government the ability to decide who runs and owns radio stations and thus, what types of programs can be aired on radio.  Our warnings worked and the government backed away from the Fairness Doctrine, but as we all know, these policies do not go away, they just morph into something else.  Net Neutrality is one of those morphed policies.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting:

As phone and video services have migrated online, the FCC has struggled to stretch its authority over new technologies. The FCC’s net neutrality proposal, driven by Chairman Julius Genachowski, is the strongest move yet by the federal government to assert control over the rules of the road on the Internet.

Google and AT&T have been embroiled in a battle over the net neutrality proposal, which gained ground last week when FCC Commissioners unanimously voted to move forward net neutrality and will be manipulated in the coming weeks into a policy that will be crammed down the throats of internet users and providers.  This is a forerunner to government control of the internet.  Keep in mind that the President has already granted himself emergency control over the internet and has a Cyber Czar to police the internet.  These net neutrality rules will enforce that power.

Google supports net neutrality because it gives them farther reach.  High speed internet will have to be provided to all areas of America and internet services will be unable to block anything on the internet, specifically Google.  Google, incidentally blocks whatever it pleases or works against conservative websites like Atlas Shrugs.  Google is also in bed with GE, which puts them in bed with the Obama administration.

The Wall Street Journal also reports:

AT&T and other Internet-access providers want latitude to manage traffic on congested wireless networks and freedom to devote a chunk of their wired networks to selling more expensive services. Internet providers are worried regulators are assuming veto power over their efforts to develop new revenue streams from their Internet lines.

Google and other Internet companies fret that phone and cable companies will hobble their efforts to offer competing services online or will try charging them more for better connections to consumers.

Google wants phone and cable companies to deliver all traffic equally, so carriers can’t get in the way of it offering consumers high-definition TV shows or movies on YouTube or phone services like Google Voice.

This would all be a great idea if not for the fact that the government is getting involved.  And anyone paying attention to the FCC knows that its new head thinks Hugo Chavez is great and applauds his revolution.  The FCC also has a board where Democrats outnumber Republicans.  The Progressives are slowly powergrabbing everything they can and we need to wake up and fight it to save our freedom.

Oprah On Copenhagen

Today I happened to catch the first part of the Oprah Winfrey Show.  No, I did not choose to watch Oprah, it was on in the same room as myself.  Anyway, Oprah hosted a show on various countries and Denmark was one of those countries, specifically Copenhagen.  She must have filmed it while she was there to promote the Olympics.  She did mention that things did not go well in the case of the Olympics.  I laughed out loud.

The main focus was that Denmark is considered by researchers to have the most happy population on earth.  The idea seems to be that the people are taken care of by the government, so they have nothing to worry about.  Oprah interviewed a woman who explained that if she loses her job, the government will help her find a new one and pay her up to four years of unemployment insurance.  University education is not only provided for free, but students are paid to attend school.  People pick their occupations based on interest rather than the amount of money they will earn because everybody earns equal pay.  Healthcare is free as well.  The woman gave a tour of her home that was cramped.  Three children share one room.  Marriage is no big deal in Denmark and so there is no pressure there.  Several Danish women told Oprah that they do not believe in any Higher Power and that most Danes have the same lack of belief.

As a freedom-loving American, i found myself wondering how anyone could be happy under a socialistic rule like this where everyone is treated as an equal even when equal effort is not given.  How can one be happy when they have no way to measure success?  How can one be happy when they are not rewarded according to effort?  The Danish women maintained that they lived under a Democracy and not socialism.  I clear example of how wonderful their free education has been.  It is not until halfway through the interview that the woman being interviewed admits that taxes are 50%.  Some free healthcare and education, eh?  This is the way all of these countries work.  They claim to get services for free even though they are paying immense taxes.  The Danish woman claimed that she did not mind the 50% in taxes.  I certainly would not be happy paying half of my hard earned money to the government.

I would be interested in knowing who exactly are the researchers that came up with the result that the Danes are the most happy.  I bet they were from Berkley or perhaps Columbia University.

Communist Red In New York City

empire-pd

Did you ever think there would come a day when America would be so indebted to Communist China that we would herald their 60th anniversary of Chairman Mao’s concurring of China and turning it into a Communist state?  What has America come to when a symbol like the Empire State Building is denigrated like this.  The Empire State Building reminds of us 9/11 since it is now the tallest building in New York with the Twin Towers obliterated.  The Empire State Building was an engineering achievement and symbolizes the capability of the American spirit and work force.  This building was built during the Great Depression and constructed in a year.  And now it is covered with Communist Red.  How long before all of America looks the same?

Gamaliel And Barack Obama

How many more of these videos of people and children worshipping Obama and revelations of nefarious connections between Obama and community organizing groups have to happen before Americans realize that we are in a waking nightmare with our current leadership?  Most of this information was revealed during the campaign, but no one was paying attention.  Now it is a full on fight for our country and citizen journalists, bloggers, radio show hosts, FOX News and concerned citizens are getting this information out as quickly as we can get it out.  BreitbartTV has posted a video of a gathering of a group called Gamaliel that you must see.   Deliver us Obama?!

So who exactly is this group Gamaliel and what is Obama’s connection to that group?  Pamela Gellar of Atlas Shrugs has dug up much information on those questions.  President Obama was a former Gamaliel organizer.  He was a lawyer for ACORN.  Both these groups use the principles of Saul Alinsky, which we have watched the White House continue to use as Obama continues his campaigning for his Marxist policies.  How can a President that adopted and worked for organizations that promoted anti-American ideology possibly do anything for the benefit of America?  Does anyone still wonder why the President places America in a precarious place security-wise and apologizes for America any chance he is given the opportunity?  No wonder he wants to be liked by our enemies – he is the enemy! 

Stanley Kurtz researched Gamaliel back in November 2008 and wrote in the National Review, “The same separatist, anti-American theology of liberation that was so boldly and bitterly proclaimed by Obama’s pastor is shared, if more quietly, by Obama’s Gamaliel colleagues. The operative word here is “quietly.” Gamaliel specializes in ideological stealth, and Obama, a master student of Gamaliel strategy, shows disturbing signs of being a sub rosa radical himself. Obama’s legislative tactics, as well as his persistent professions of non-ideological pragmatism, appear to be inspired by his radical mentors’ most sophisticated tactics. Not only has Obama studied, taught, and apparently absorbed stealth techniques from radical groups like Gamaliel and ACORN, but in his position as a board member of Chicago’s supposedly nonpartisan Woods Fund, he quietly funneled money to his radical allies — at the very moment he most needed their support to boost his political career. It’s high time for these shadowy, perhaps improper, ties to receive a dose of sunlight…The Gamaliel connection appears to supply a solution to the riddle of Obama’s mysterious political persona. On one hand, he likes to highlight his days as a community organizer — a profession with proudly radical roots in the teachings of Chicago’s Saul Alinsky, author of the highly influential text Rules for Radicals. Obama even goes so far as to make the community-organizer image a metaphor for his distinctive conception of elective office. On the other hand, Obama presents himself as a post-ideological, consensus-minded politician who favors pragmatic, common-sense solutions to the issues of the day. How can Obama be radical and post-radical at the same time?”

The Gamaliel Foundation posts their mission as this, “The mission of Gamaliel Foundation is to assist local community leaders to create, maintain and expand independent, grassroots, and powerful faith-based community organizations so that ordinary people can impact the political, social, economic, and environmental decisions that affect their lives; to provide these organizations with leadership training programs, consultation, research and analysis on social justice issues;  to be a network for mutual learning environments and working coalitions.”  They claim that their vision propels us to a “more perfect union”.  The detals of this vision can be found here and include “collectively transform our society and bring about justice locally, nationally and globally.”

As an interesting side note, I looked up Gamaliel on Wikipedia and the word is the Greek form of the Hebrew word for “gift of God”.  Since this group comes from a religious foundation, I believe that is no coincidence.  And now Gamliel has given us their gift from God – Barack Obama.

Defeating The Leftists

An article by David Horowitz at Front Page Magazine states in the final paragraph:

“The only way to defeat the left — and I have failed in twenty years of arguing this to persuade conservatives  — is to turn the table around and attack their moral self-image. Leftists are in fact the enemies and oppressors of women, children, gays, minorities and the poor, and conservatives should never confront them without reminding them of this fact. If Naomi Wolf and her radical friends had their way, America would be disarmed and radical Islam would be triumphant and women would be back in the Middle Ages, and the rest of us along with them.”

This sentiment is so very true, but the minorities in American society continue to cling to the idea that the left is their friend.  While conservatives are the protectors of freedom and the Constitution, which highlights the rights of all people, the left enslaves the poor and oppressed through entitlement programs meant to hold them back and keep them down.  Statistics reveal that communities with Democrat leadership are the poorest in the nation.  Proponents on the left believe in bigger government or rather, government intrusion into our lives.  That kind of intrusion throughout history has lead to totalitarian government systems like Nazism and dictatorships in which millions of people lose their lives.  Many minorities are targeted under these systems.  Jews and gays under Nazism and gypsies in Russia are examples.

Government entitlements like welfare leave people in bondage much in the same way that people lived as serfs in the past.  This is a path to serfdom.  We must educate people about this and we must cut these programs out completely.  Charities and churches are meant to help the disadvantaged and they should take their rightful place now.  People were made to work and they must if they can.  Disabilities only hold back those that allow it to hold them back.  Do these people really want to continue to suck at the teet of the government?  Do they want to be like Oliver Twist asking for “more, Sir?”

And as Horowitz points out, we must confront them with the facts and shut them up everytime they try to label us with some vicious name that does not describe us.  We are not racists or homophobes.  Conservatives in fact have great numbers of minorities in their presence and these numbers continue to swell as America wakes up and realizes we have a Marxist take-over happening in Washington.

Creepy Pledge To Obama Re-Surfaces

In January 2009, a video headed up by Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore appeared on YouTube.  I was horrified at the time, but had forgotten about it until recent reports revealed that school districts in Utah were showing the video to school children.  Here is that creepy video of the elitist Hollywood libtards pledging to be servants to the President:

Now we also have been informed that the President will be indoctrinating the children of America during school hours on September 8th.  Parents are planning to keep their children home and Texas school districts are otping out of the curriculum for that day.  I think parents should let their children attend school that day and join them so that they are informed of the type of indcotrination that Obamaism is pushing on our children.  Is the President going to say more than just how great a good education is and that children should stay in school?  My bet is that he will.  There is something sinister behind the scenes here because this video address will be shown to all grades K-12.  What exactly are Kindergartners suppose to glean from the President’s message? 

There is also a directed curriculum from the White House of specific questions that teachers are suppose to address with their classes after the program.  Questions like, “What can I do for the President?” and “What is the President asking me to do?”  I would assume that he wants them to join his Brownshirts Civilian Corp.  Here is the curriculum:

Teachers can build background knowledge about the President of the United States and his speech by reading books about presidents and Barack Obama and motivate students by asking the following questions: Who is the President of the United States? What do you think it takes to be President? To whom do you think the President is going to be speaking? Why do you think he wants to speak to you? What do you think he will say to you?

Teachers can ask students to imagine being the President delivering a speech to all of the students in the United States. What would you tell students? What can students do to help in our schools? Teachers can chart ideas about what they would say.

Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?
During the Speech:

As the President speaks, teachers can ask students to write down key ideas or phrases that are important or personally meaningful. Students could use a note-taking graphic organizer such as a Cluster Web, or students could record their thoughts on sticky notes. Younger children can draw pictures and write as appropriate. As students listen to the speech, they could think about the following: What is the President trying to tell me? What is the President asking me to do? What new ideas and actions is the President challenging me to think about?

Students can record important parts of the speech where the President is asking them to do something. Students might think about: What specific job is he asking me to do? Is he asking anything of anyone else? Teachers? Principals? Parents? The American people?

Students can record any questions they have while he is speaking and then discuss them after the speech. Younger children may need to dictate their questions.
After the Speech:

Teachers could ask students to share the ideas they recorded, exchange sticky notes or stick notes on a butcher paper poster in the classroom to discuss main ideas from the speech, i.e. citizenship, personal responsibility, civic duty.

Students could discuss their responses to the following questions: What do you think the President wants us to do? Does the speech make you want to do anything? Are we able to do what President Obama is asking of us? What would you like to tell the President?

Teachers could encourage students to participate in the Department of Education’s “I Am What I Learn” video contest.

What is our country coming to here?  We must protect the children above all and counter the propaganda coming from the White House!  Oh yes, dear Dictator.  Third world countries plaster their leader everywhere as well.
