Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


"We didn't know"

by ReeAl Lit Tee Chek
"We didn't know." This was what the German civilian population would say over and over again about the German concentration camps in the coming months after Liberation by the Allied Forces in 1945. The American Army leaders were determined that the ordinary German people should see the depths of depravity to which their Nazis leaders had sunk. The German monsters that average Germans supported and loved.

Has history taught us nothing? We have reached a stage in the cycle of life again, whereby everyday people are willing to lend comfort and support to the forces of oppression and hate. The Right Wing agenda wants to stifle free speech, freedom of Religion, freedom of choice, as well as the Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Millions of hard working, everyday people are forced to endure taunts, insults, lies, hate, and violence dispense by fellow Americans - simply because they are different. These people are different in culture, beliefs, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other (dis)qualifying factors.

The Right Wing has overstepped the bounds of civility and decency without apology or remorse. Hatred, violence, and divisiveness are the tools the Conservative Faction is using to undermine public discourse and civility between political parties - common citizens and those that would be political leaders. There does not appear to be anyone affiliated with the Conservative point of view willing to stand up and say - ENOUGH!

Consequently, America will eventually travel down the same road that the people of Germany trekked immediately after the Germans surrendered in 1945. One day our fellow Right Wing Americans will cry, moan, and say that they did not know how far out of kilter the Republican leadership had taken this country. On that day there will weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. On that day the Right Wing apologists will regret ever listening to weak minded fools like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, etc.

If allowed this scenario could take place. We still have time to undo the mess that sits before us. We still have time to put an end to the Right Wing lunacy and chaos that lies in wait. We can do that with our VOTES. This is the process that the Founding Fathers bequeath to each American citizen. Voting is the sane and reasonable way to overthrow the hate and misery that Conservatives offer as compensation for taking control of our nation.

In 1932, Fox Helped Make Propaganda Films for Hitler

Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D.
September 30, 2010

Observers of the current US election season have noted the prominent role of Rupert Murdoch’s reactionary Fox News Channel, which currently employs GOP and “Tea Party” partisans Sarah Palin, Glen Beck, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Sean Hannity, and others. Some have alleged that a television network carrying so many potential political candidates and propagandists on its payroll is unprecedented. But there is a precedent for large-scale Fox intervention into a political campaign.

In 1932, the German newsreel subsidiary of Fox News Channel’s corporate ancestor, Fox Films, intervened in national elections in Germany.

The candidate Fox supported was Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

The basic facts are available in German historian Hans Mommsen’s authoritative study entitled The Rise and Fall of Weimar Democracy, which is translated into English and widely available in over five hundred libraries in this country. Mommsen, one of the most distinguished postwar German historians, is now Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Bochum. In Mommsen’s account of Nazi propaganda techniques, we find the following: “There was nothing that escaped the ingenuity of Nazi propagandists. A case in point was the use of film. Under Goebbels’ influence the party had begun to exploit the potential of the political propaganda film to an unprecedented extent as early as 1930. Such films were shown mostly in places where Hitler and other prominent party leaders were not able to appear as speakers.

"The essence of propaganda consists in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, that in the end they succumb to it utterly and can never escape from it." Goebbels
"the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unfiagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.

The purpose is to convince the masses. The masses are slow moving, and only after the simplest ideas are repeated thousands of times will the masses finally remember them.
Would have to say today in 2010 Faux Talk Show (fox news) has succeeded in becoming a HUGH PROPAGANDA MACHINE IN AMERICA.
