Propaganda and Culture Wars: The Educational System

After a long stressful month I come back to work and within 48 hours I have the flu. That figures. Anyway I’ve been giving this stuff some thought for a while and I’m just catching on to a lot of the influence that schools have on children. I went through some of my mom’s things recently and I found this lapel pin. I think I saw it before and the thing actually made me chuckle because it was given to my mom as a little girl for graduating from kindergarten. Big deal, I thought. I put it back into her box of wonders where she kept things from a past we’re not going to see again. The pin got me to thinking though that at one time even at the lowest level a child received recognition for accomplishing something, say, worked hard at learning the alphabet, penmanship and could recite the pledge of allegiance. Mom kept certificates from first grade and such in an old folder and recalled how school was actually about learning basic skills. I can’t do math. I am a wonder of the public school system some 50 years later and I can’t do math without breaking into a sweat. So I have a math phobia. But my folks could do math right off the top of their heads and spoke with seriousness even in their later years about how their teachers expected them to learn the materials provided and be good at it.

So the pin, considering the state of affairs in this country and the decline in our education system I’d say makes more sense now. Hard work merited rewards. Math is very useful and so is English and government classes but instead I hear more and more about courses that introduce children to matters not appropriate to their psychological development and less useful once they enter the workforce. People were happy and proud to earn a high school diploma but so much has changed since my parent’s time. I also noticed the pin bears a cross which is something amazing because by the time my generation entered the school system God too was rendered inappropriate. I got into trouble for reading a prayer sheet my mom gave me which I had slipped inside a book and was reading it before class. The teacher came into the room, zeroed in on me, grabbed the book and found the terrible contraband inside. Mind you, this was one of the teachers who complained of not making enough money and was frequently going to strikes while leaving us kids in the classroom to rot in stupidity.

Tea and cake for 1,000 to go please

I couldn’t understand where her anger came from back then but I do now. I’m not saying all teachers are like that, but let’s face it; the system has been infiltrated by subversives for so many generations that it’s hard to tell if you’re in safe company. Even in my college years while I went to night school while in the service I had to tackle professors with ideas so radical I had to wage academic war on them. I won. One guy looked like some beatnik type and I wonder how he was allowed on the base to teach, but he had this thing for teaching strange history. You know, stuff that isn’t exactly right. He said during one of his lectures that the attack on the Bastille was not an attack; it was a peaceful takeover of a prison. I looked around and everyone else but me and at the time my husband were shaking their heads in agreement. Uh, no, the Bastille was rushed by citizens who previously organized and broke into a large mob that broke into the Invalides prison and stole scores of weapons but had no ammo. So, the word got out quickly that the Bastille prison had tons of ammo. Two plus two I can count that much. The mob headed to the Bastille and launched the French Revolution and I’m putting this into simple terms because the introduction of bad science and bad history into the classrooms is pervasive and a danger to our way of life. So no, the rush on the Bastille was not some we are the world thingy. We had heard enough of that guy, his long curly hair flopping over his shoulders as he went too far when he started explaining how Hitler was misunderstood and that Nazism was more about a movement based on the occult, like Satanism or whatnot; basically gibberish.

We went home and searched our library. Hubby went for some standard history of the world stuff while I went for the cannon shells, because I don’t do anything in a small scale. Armed with our books, we dropped them loudly onto the front row table and took a seat. Professor paced back and forth and from time to time he would glance at our books, mine more than hubby’s for some reason. After about an hour professor stopped in front of me while talking (I tuned him out, I had good grades anyway) and picked up one book; Simon Schama’s Citizens, A chronicle of the French Revolution. He mentioned with surprised that was one of the hardest books to read. I just smiled. I liked the book. I could read you know, it wasn’t hard for me. It didn’t take long before we both engaged the man in academic combat, leaving him frustrated. He called a break and asked us both to step aside. He was direct. We were being disruptive. Hubby smiled and got in his face. We’re just debating you, that is what we’re supposed to do in class, right?

Well, no, he said. He preferred that students stuck to his lesson plan. But we complained that his lesson plan contained no truth at all, no factual information that could be verified in our books. Maybe in his world history was recorded differently. So after going back and forth the terms for a truce were put out to us: if you stop bringing these books to class and getting into arguments, I will give you both an A.

We kept on for a while until it was obvious that he knew at least two people in his class were not drones and that scared him. That meant he lost control of his class and could not deliver his message. The semester was about half-way over so we backed off but we were both A students anyway. The pressure was on and I understood then that the professor belonged to the same bunch who espouses the vilification of children who pray in school like their lives are in danger. I’m not turned easily. I ask questions and I check sources and so should you. What are your kids learning in school? Is what they are learning in concert with your values? Careful in asking around; dissent is considered disruption. We’re not supposed to learn in school what my folks and your folks learned in school. So what is it? There can’t be anything like spirituality or friendly discussion of topics unless you follow a certain agenda.

Like the people who rushed the Bastille on that morning of July 14, Americans will have to arm themselves with the truth and fight the same kind of tyranny they fought against then. Don’t show up for a battle without your ammo. I don’t take anyone’s word at face value, believe me. I like to have the option of checking before I agree. We should all do that.

That’s where propaganda comes in. You can’t sell trash to the masses unless you dress it up. But that’s for my next installment. Wish me a quick recovery from the flu. Good night.

The Charmer in Chief

Posted in hollywood influence, Opinion (Political), propaganda, US politics with tags , , on November 21, 2009 by AN Security

“Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”  George Orwell

No, I don’t think that Barack Obama is a charming guy, not by a long shot. 

 

For that matter, I don’t see how people think he’s got rock star charisma either. However he’s more like one of those snake charmers from Appalachia; though he says his belief in the snake of oblivion is justified through scripture, handling is still a dangerous endeavor. In his case, his message is perhaps much more dangerous because they are so deeply imbedded in his psyche that he’ll do anything to advance his agenda. His personal brand at first portrayed as a new grassroots, clean and refreshing breath of air to the usual Washington insider’s shenanigans. Now even people who voted for him (yes, the ones who thought that ‘change’ would take care of right-wingers and not affect them) are puzzled to see that nothing he’s promised has been fulfilled. Well, actually, the guy is quite truthful; he’s been saying what he wanted to do all along, it’s just that folks simply hear what they want to hear but don’t analyze the content and relevance of his speeches which brings me to the point of propaganda and marketing approaches of the Democrat party.

                Beliefs can often be so strong as to make a reasonable person act strangely but some people actually believe in what they say or do and want you to be of the same persuasion. Perhaps the snake analogy doesn’t get through m ost people, so let me change it to mass hysteria, hypnosis, how’s that? One thing is to take scripture at face value and another is to let someone else interpret it for you. But tell me, why are Obama supporters going to rallies, are being more vocal about his policies and frankly act like someone lied to them? Maybe they are just as mesmerized (Franz Mesmer was a professional pervert by the way) by his message as the rest of us were terrified by his apocalyptic persona. Still, we fail to see the big picture. So let’s take a look at the sum of the parts rather than the whole because it’s obvious that we’ve been duped but this could have been prevented. Unfortunately, allowing a guy like Obama to serve as leader of the free world may be something that cannot be reversed even after he leaves office.

 There are many changes in the way we live our lives in America and for the most part the groundwork for these changes had been set over many generations until now, a time in the age of information, where everything is being recorded, stored and sent across the world in seconds and where the line between legitimate information and propaganda is blurred; masking the truth with the advent of a new era or world order and that new world order comes under a false premise. But how does a charmer make his way into power without being discovered? That depends on branding. While one man’s brand promises change nobody really needs, another wages an open revolution, crams it down the throats of his people, and then complains that others are simply scheming against him.

I can see the Obama phenomenon as the Russian royal family and their sidekick Rasputin which is aptly filled in by the likes of Oprah (the “Oracle”) who dishes out chic advice to the glamorous couple and tags along like a cabinet member. But other than that, of course, the connection with Hollywood buffoons and hangers on to join his cool posse really should make us curious because we’ve been eating this jacked up soup of worldly temptations for many generations and now we’ve reached the bottom of the terrine. So what’s next, dessert?  I’m getting a sour stomach actually and that post-party taste in the mouth ain’t pretty either.

In the case of Obama, this revolution was designed to be more covert, systematic but silent. After a while, speeches and cool sound bites run out of their own efficacy giving way to public awareness leading to brief pauses which could either swing things in the opposite direction if not handled promptly. We can’t let you all think for yourselves, you understand right? Like the snake charmer, the charmer needs the snake since without it there is no show or racket.  Surely the snake charmer can’t have an effect based on his personality. Obama can’t possibly work his magic alone  so behind him there must be a force large enough to sustain the attack on American values, our Constitution and civil liberties. The force must also be large and strong enough to see and counteract every defensive move we make.

Hollywood, NEA and how movies and pop culture can point you to the coming age

The news were really news a hundred years ago as forms of communication were limited to the technology of the time though with the advent of higher technology humanity went from smoke signals to the telegraph to the telephone and the party line to the world wide web. The amount of information out in the net is so overwhelming is the perfect environment because when there is much to sort through we will either persevere or give up searching for the truth. For a guy with no experience who has a big talent for gab aided by technology (teleprompter industry sure has experienced a boon, huh? Who said Obama hasn’t created jobs?)

Let me see. Right off the top of my head, health care reform, economic stimulus package, right of life debate, gun control, food labeling laws, cancer screenings, the H1N1 virus scare, reproductive rights, the list goes on.        I will be examining some of my favorite films and would like to see how the socialist message has been transmitted to the rest of us. I know it’s there. I’ve heard that disgusting whisper in my ear for most of my life; I just always hoped the message was just an attempt to take over our way of life and not an actual movement in progress. The enemy works in plain sight and all we do is sit and wait for John Wayne to save the day. Well, I’ve got news for you. John Wayne is gone and metro-sexual men are the flavor of the decade (yuck) and they’re not keen on saving anything but themselves.

There is nothing more unpleasant than to walk into a room and discover a thief robbing you. What do you do? Did you close the doors, windows; did you turn off the stove? They’re here and all we can do is prepare for battle, plain and simple. This blog is just about taking apart some of the pieces of the big lie to show you it’s been there all along. I know where it’s going to take me and don’t like it but I’d rather have truth than darkness, don’t you?
