ONE WORLD ORDER: THE CONSERVATIVE CHARADE
“The rank and file is usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious. The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly... it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” Joseph Goebbels
One very key point, repeated daily for decades, by the most vociferous voices, is that the media is liberal. The conservatives have a giant advantage over their appointed opponents, the liberals: a cohesive, complaining group who monopolize air time claiming that a liberal bias exists in the media. From rich to poor, the masses gain the majority of their information from the media and take great pride in being well-informed, morally superior, pro-war conservatives. One might doubt a premise from one source but multiple sources suggests credibility despite lack of evidence. Switch channels or stations – it is all the same news and it seems to favor the government.
Dissident voices are rare and quickly disqualified as treasonous, out of touch, unpatriotic, putting our troops in harm’s way or helping Al Qaeda (excuse for media censorship and suspension of the 1st Amendment). Dissent is not allowed in a dictatorship. One apparent exception is the illegal alien invasion, however misdirected the criticism is. Voter apathy has turned to anger over what is essentially an orchestrated invasion by invitation. It is easy to criticize after the fact while congress deliberates and Americans pay the price.
The conservative voices include but are not limited to: Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Laura Ingraham, Dennis Prager, Bill Bennett, Sean Hannity, Michael Reagan, Matt Drudge, Oliver North, Ann Coulter, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, Rusty Humphries, Larry Elder, Neal Boortz, Mark Davis, G. Gordon Liddy and don’t forget the televangelists. There are also numerous individuals who author newspaper columns and well publicized books. Who do the liberals have? Who is comparable among the radio, television, and print personalities? If you can think of anyone – how regularly is he or she verbally vanquished and vilified by the conservatives?
So-called conservative con artist talk show hosts do not educate or enlighten but present a deceptive dialogue of disinformation which promotes the theoretical global war of terror. They brainwash their listeners and intimidate and insult their non compliant callers as they glorify death and war disguised as patriotism. Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
“The biggest political joke in America is that we have a liberal press. It's a joke taken seriously by a surprisingly large number of people... The myth of the liberal press has served as a political weapon for conservative and right-wing forces eager to discourage critical coverage of government and corporate power ... Americans now have the worst of both worlds: a press that, at best, parrots the pronouncements of the powerful and, at worst, encourages people to be stupid with pseudo-news that illuminates nothing but the bottom line.” Mark Hertzgaard
In 1995 Bill Kristol confessed to the New Yorker: “The liberal media were never that powerful, and the whole thing was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures.”
The charges of liberal bias are just maneuvers in a cynical game explained Rich Bond, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee. The nasty accusations hurled at the liberals by angry wannabe victims function like the heckling of passionate sports spectators who scream and yell “unfair” over every single penalty. “The referee will think twice before blowing the whistle” and might “cut you a little slack on the next one. Conservatives have learned to ‘work the ref’ so diligently that their exclusion is one of the most widely discussed topics in the media – with them doing most of the talking.” The poor, pitiful highly visible and very verbal, amply paid conservatives would have us believe that they are all “media outcasts” all the while appearing on numerous radio and television shows.
According to Mark Crispin Miller, the so-called liberal press was a consistent advocate for Bush and his collaborating cronies. The mainstream media either downplayed or suppressed the following brief list of fascistic incidences involving an insecure but dictatorial Bush who obviously recognizes his numerous shortcomings but cannot tolerate any appearance of opposition:
One glaring incident involved Dan Rather, along with four television news producers, all formerly of CBS News. The four were Mary Mapes, Betsy West, Josh Howard, and Mary Murphy. Their offense: they “exposed a rich kid whose powerful daddy got him out of the military draft during the war in Vietnam. The rich kid is the president; the daddy was another president.” CBS appointed an Independent Review Panel, consisting of just two people, to determine the ethics of the five individuals. The two experts were Dick Thornburgh, Attorney General in the administration of George H. W. Bush and Louis Boccardi. Thornburgh, hardly objective, is known to have “whitewashed the investigation of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.” With his “help” Exxon escaped full culpability. Oil and water do not mix but oil and Bush have always been an interesting concoction.
Viacom, the owner of CBS, is the second-largest media company in the country and owned by Sumner M. Redstone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, a very rich media mogul. Viacom also owns Nickelodeon, MTV, Infinity Broadcasting, Paramount, Blockbuster and BET on cable, as well the UPN broadcast network. Redstone is the mega media mogul responsible for the ousting of Dan Rather who dared question our war president’s military record. Out with free speech, investigative reporting and in with political and corporate expediency.
“Reacting to the document scandal at CBS News, Sumner M. Redstone, chairman and chief executive of Viacom, CBS' parent, vowed that the results of a recently announced probe would be ‘appropriate’--and the consequences will be appropriate.” As a side note – in December 2005, Viacom changed its name to CBS Corporation. See a list of CBS assets here. Viacom became a spin-off company.
Redstone spoke to the to the Forbes Global CEO Conference and stated that he was “very concerned” about a 60 Minutes story from September 8, 2004 by Dan Rather that suggested glaring irregularities in President George W. Bush's military record. “CBS has since conceded that the documents on which the story was based could not be authenticated. Rather has apologized, and CBS News has said the story was a mistake.” A lengthy career was over – his name will always be associated with this incident – an inconvenient truth jeopardizing the One World Order agenda of a Bush second term. If the media were truly liberal, as frequently claimed, the entire exposure of the several skeletons in the Bush closet could not have been kept back.
Prior to his CBS demise “In June 2002, the CBS anchor appeared on the BBC. He looked old, defeated and made a confession he dare not speak on American TV. ‘Fear keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions,’ the aging American journalist told the British television audience.” Rather remarked that a deadly censorship had seized U.S. newsrooms, especially after the September 11 attack. News on the U.S. tube was “bound and gagged.” He continued: “Any reporter who stepped out of line would be professionally lynched as un-American.” Certain reporters from The New York Times are currently finding this to be the case. Back in the U.S. Rather “smothered his professional conscience and told his TV audience, ‘George Bush is the president. He makes the decisions. He wants me to line up, just tell me where.’”
“Commenting on the upcoming U.S. presidential election, Redstone said that while Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) was a ‘nice guy,’ the re-election of President Bush would be best for Viacom's interests, since the Administration backed deregulation and other issues that would help the company.” Kerry, who did go to Vietnam compared to Bush who didn’t, was the subject of Unfit for Duty, an explosive and very timely book allegedly exposing Kerry’s unearned medals and lack of courage. Private, corporate ownership of the media includes an exclusive opportunity, through firing and hiring practices, to greatly affect elections. The neo-cons stated: “It is important to shape circumstances.” PNAC Statement of Principles
At 10:22 a.m. (EST) on the morning of November 3, 2004, the day after the election and before Kerry’s concession at 1:57 p.m., the president of the Heritage Foundation sent email to 200,000 members asking for a “generous contribution” to help the foundation do “what we have to do right now” – help “President Bush and his allies in Congress” to keep cutting taxes, “modernize Social Security, “weed out terrorists and perfect the military.” Jumping the gun and speeding ahead with one’s agenda is either arrogant overconfidence, supported by the corporate press or sure knowledge supplied by conspiratorial vote counters.
“For the media owners, allegations of a liberal bias make it easier for them to impose the conservative bias they prefer. For the pseudo liberals who work in the media system, confessing to a liberal bias is far more comfortable than admitting that they've sold out their beliefs for a nice salary. It's only because the mainstream media is so conservative that all these right-wing pundits can make accusations of liberal bias without opposition.” Bernard Goldberg and Ann Coulter, just two outraged conservatives bravely battling the liberal dragon press, have successfully scammed the public with their big money-making, insubstantial accusations. Goldberg, a former correspondent, was associated with the same network CBS that career-crunched Dan Rather. His very biased book Bias was published on February 25, 2001 and propped up the conservative charade.
In addition to those issues mentioned above, I would like to see the following imperative issues covered in the so-called liberal mainstream media and the professed conservative news:
What about those jobs? What are those employees manufacturing? Or are they being trained to implant ID chips, spy on their neighbors, and work as camp guards or perhaps work on that secret super highway?
We are not any freer than the controlled, contentious cover-up media. Rush Limbaugh is the acclaimed original “right wing” radio talk jock who continues to successfully lambaste liberals and the purported liberal media bias even though he admitted in 2002 that liberal bias was non existent. Several more have joined him in this crusade. They bash the allegedly morally decadent liberal left as compared to the “righteous” right who claim moral superiority despite ample evidence to the contrary.
Thousands of clueless disciples, in what propagandist Michael Medved calls “the greatest nation on God’s green earth,” tune in daily to get conservative views as opposed to the big, bad, ugly, deceitful ‘liberal’ lies. Folks, it is orchestrated opposition – owned by the same entities. Whether you read the Twinkie Times, listen to tough fluff, pro-war Laura Ingraham, or watch any of the Faux “fair and balanced” shows, including the king of castigation – Bill O’Reilly, it is the same. Devotees are daily rewarded and energized by the vicious attacks and criticism directed at the evil enemy – the liberal opposition. We are so distracted we fail to recognize the synthesized Republican/Democratic party. The genuine dissenters supporting such things as anti-tax, pro-2nd Amendment rights, pro-Constitution, anti-big government, and anti-war can anticipate being lumped with the terrorists – “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” How can conservatives claim to prefer less government and in the same breath ask the government to seize the church’s authority over marriage?
“Neo-con” talk radio has lent legitimacy to the Bush administration plus phony patriotic propaganda for continual preemptive war. War means the killing, the maiming, and the devastating illnesses of thousands of Middle-Eastern citizens because their leader was/is non-compliant to One World Order demands. And with the Bushs – like father, like son, nuclear air strikes are preferable to diplomacy for establishing power, instilling fear and furthering the work of death.
Christians should be the first to recognize the probability of secret societies or secret combinations and money interests intent on depriving others of their liberty or life. The death of Christ was the result of a conspiracy associated with currency. There were plots to kill Paul and numerous others. There were also those early day “public relations” groups who deliberately influenced the masses to perpetuate their covert agenda – remember, the admirers who bowed before Christ upon his entry into Jerusalem were the same people who, a mere few days, later clamored for his death. What changed?
citizens jump on that political war machine that promotes continual
conflict, we must evaluate and scrutinize the sources of our perceptions
– is it orchestrated opposition propaganda or real information?
