Leftist Propaganda and Modern Society

Recent themes have been to inquire into how it is that American society is so easily convinced to support political policies, even when such policies work against the long-term benefits of the American people.  The answer is sophisticated campaigns of propaganda.

By propaganda, I mean programs designed to systematically disseminate information, disinformation, distortions, and outright lies to achieve ideological advantages.  Everyone does this, but it in the past 20 years, the narratives have become increasingly damaging to American society.  Truth doesn’t matter in political campaigns; what matters is what people have been led to believe —nor does this only pertain to political differences[1].

Overall, America’s capitalist society is far better off economically than in almost any other country in the world.  In spite of this, 40% of American voters believe that most Americans are poor, that most Americans are racist, most are homophobic, most are Islamophobic, and that every gender-confused person deserves a taxpayer funded remedy.  Why so many people believe this is because these claims have become the propaganda mantra of the Democratic Party.  It is not only a deliberate lie, it is a blatant lie told often.

Having thus established a lie as their underlying predicate, Democrats continue their campaign of propaganda by convincing these 40% that the underlying problem in America today is white society, rich people, Christian ethics, or those who simply do not care about the condition of their fellow man.  Interestingly, if you are a racial or ethnic minority, an immigrant, welfare recipient, or one of those gender-confused persons, the lie is believable because it suits the so-called oppression narrative.

The facts tell us a different story.

  • In many other countries, poor people do not have access to institutions whereby they may change their circumstances. Eighty percent of the world’s population lives on $2.50 per day.
  • In the United States, everyone has access to public education, yet the percentage of people who do not finish high school include 33% of Hispanics, 13% of blacks, and 6% of whites. People living below the poverty level include 22% black, 20% Hispanic, 13% Other, 9% white.  In terms of the total, 13% our people live at or below the poverty level (established by the government at $20,160 per year), or on $55.23 per day.

These statistics appear to suggest that 87% of the American people live above the poverty level —and if this is true, then what in the world are Democrats talking about when they argue that blacks, for example, are victims of white society?  If most poor Americans have refused to avail themselves of free education, if black single-parent families are the new normal, if a large percent of Hispanic children are unable to answer the question, “Who’s your daddy,” then how are these circumstances caused by white Christian Republicans?

According to New York State Crime Statistics, 83% of all gun assailants are black.  Together, blacks and Hispanics account for 98% of all gun crimes.  Forty-nine percent of all murders are committed by blacks —many of these crimes perpetrated against other blacks.  Forty-nine of every 50 muggings are carried out by blacks or Hispanics.  We have not even discussed drug use, teen pregnancy, cultural myopia, or laziness, and if we were to assume that the leftists are correct in demanding “equal outcomes” for everyone, do they suggest that more white Christian college graduates should also begin campaigns of murder and mayhem?

It should surprise no one that nearly all of America’s poor people are dedicated Democrats, so it is no wonder that leftists continue to perpetuate myths of oppression —it is how they maintain their voting bloc.  Taking from Peter to pay Paul has never worked, but these realities do not matter.  What matters is getting elected or reelected.

Democrats have no problem perpetuating social entitlement programs (it is, after all, a form of bribery and a major hook for voters), and there is no hesitation arguing vehemently for the redistribution of wealth.  What is lacking in their platform are policies and programs that provide a constructive environment for economic success—but again, real financial success isn’t the goal of the leftist party.

Nevertheless, the DNC has developed an amazing record of successes since the 1920s.  Theirs is a carefully crafted ideology that has become omnipresent in modern society.  Leftist educators have produced citizens incapable of independent thought, leading them to accept at face value all of the lies told them about our past and present.  Joining the cabal are the media and film moguls dedicated to leftist dogma, who reinforce the Democrat’s assault upon individual responsibility, accountability, and social morality.

This is no accident.  What is the likely consequence of exposing young people to cinematic violence and explicit sex?  We are already seeing its result in modern American society, and what we are seeing isn’t pretty.  Is there not enough violence in our society today?  Are we not disturbed by the development of unrealistic attitudes about human relationships, objectifying women, and the expansion of self-indulgent behavior?  Are we unable to connect the dots between people such as Harvey Weinstein and those who enable his kinds of behaviors?

I am always amazed by people who, in looking back at what happened in Germany from 1929 to 1945, ask, “How were such things even possible?  How is it possible to convince so many millions of Germans into accepting or ignoring such atrocities?”  Yet, it was only after the war, when the entire world shunned the German people, that these citizens felt any shame for what had transpired under National Socialism.

How dare any American ask such questions?  What happened in Germany leading up to World War II is exactly what is happening in America today[2].  Current events reflect mind-boggling assaults taking place on our sidewalks.  Police officers are murdered while taking lunch in their squad cars.  Encouraged and funded by the so-called Open Society Foundation, agitated blacks have burned down large sections of our towns and cities.  In the 1930s, we called such thugs Brown Shirts; today they call themselves BLM or Antifa —and they are entirely the product of an extraordinarily well-oiled DNC propaganda campaign.  This crusade is so pervasive and so successful that I do not believe it is possible to return to a time when America was a great place to raise a family.

Notes:

[1] According to a recent study by the Victims of Communism Memorial Fund, one-half of millennials and one-third of the American people would prefer to live within a socialist or communist country.  Twenty-three percent of people between 21 and 29 years of age consider Joseph Stalin a hero; he murdered more than twenty million people.  Twenty percent of millennials have a positive opinion of Karl Marx.

[2] The anger displayed in social media is palpable; platforms such as Face Book and Twitter are being cleverly manipulated by Russian hackers to fuel this anger and resentment.  This too feeds into the leftist propaganda campaign.  It was never the intention of Saul Alinsky or Cloward-Piven to make America better … it was their intent to destroy American society.  From the leftist perspective, this goal seems to be working out quite well.

    I wonder how, if at all, the well known “Drug Epidemic” fits into all of this? I would say that it damn well doesn’t help!

      One strategy used by drug dealers is to give out free substances until the mark is hooked. I’m no expert in this, but it is my understanding that the government hands out free drugs to the addicted as part of their process of weening them away from addiction. I’m not sure how successful such programs have been. I can only assume that “free needles” has worked to save the lives of addicts in the same way “free condoms” have worked to reduce teen pregnancies. I’m also not sure how giving “free drugs” to psychologically addicted people makes any sense. What I do suspect is that drug addicts share two things in common with the homeless: both groups are willing to vote Democrat in exchange for free stuff (drugs, alcohol, cigarettes), and both groups are willing to get on the bus for a short drive over to the next voting precinct. Democrats, in my view, have almost universally adopted the Cloward-Piven plan, which is to overload the government until it collapses in upon itself. We can see this in several “progressive” programs, including the Diversity Immigration Program, which Chuck Schumer continues to support to this day.

    I remember back in the 60s, when I attended college, most of the pot smokers that I knew were inveterate advocates of Socialism and/or other Left-Wing ideologies. Today BLUE Colorado (1st state to legalize pot) has become a magnet for those folks. Although the impact of this is yet to be realized, I question a positive prognosis.

      Those who profess to adore socialism do not realize that whenever a government encourages and facilitates immoral behavior, that its only reason of doing so is to undermine and redefine our traditional values. When you are young, your brain not fully formed, then this might appear to be okay … but this is where a mature generation should step in to set the record right. Today, the older generation (previously known as hippies) has become enablers of social disintegration. As a case in point, I recently read where the California legislature is considering legalization of prostitution; Jerry Brown indicated he would sign such a bill into law. Now, if this is true, there is only one result of such an irresponsible agenda: destabilization of society —and isn’t that the entire purpose of Soros-funded progressive politicians? To this, add Hollywood hedonism which has helped to destroy human relationships and poison the minds of emerging generations.

    Actually I did think of something which is to further point out that the 55.23 per day our ‘poor’ is given does not get taxed. When comparing that to actual paycheck income, that would be more like 70 something a day plus they like get EIC on top of that each year at tax time.

    Yes, I can’t imagine trying to “raise a family” today. No matter how hard one could try, extraneous forces would stifle it at every turn. It’s gut-wrenching that this situation is, at least in part, supported by our tax money (think Public K-12 and beyond) ! Even my late mother saw this coming, years ago. I’ll say it again: We are very lucky to have LIVED (past tense) in the best times ever! It’s so hard to understand how that has turned into such a path of destruction!

    This article should be the Teleprompter script for every news anchor in America, I realize at this point most leftists are so far gone it would be like a glass of water on a forest fire but they are the words that need to be heard.

    Owning your own majority of modern day media has its perks I guess, they spread your propaganda 24/7 through an endless amount of platforms like MSDNC, the Clinton News Network, or Twit-ter which ironically doesn’t need tweaking. They are all SO convinced Trump is owned by the NRA or Russia because that’s how it works in their mind, you HAVE to be owned by someone. Like them. Again, the Devil always tells on himself.

    By the way, have you ever seen more anger than when God is mentioned in these recent horrific shootings. People are in their church praying and worshiping their God and are shot and killed by this atheist (bet he believes now) madman, House Speaker Ryan tweets something about the town and people “need our thoughts and prayers” and Hollywood responds with “they had the prayers shot right out of them”, “they were in church praying and got shot you moron” or “prayer obviously doesn’t work”. These people are mentally one click away from the demonic shooter in my mind but yet again we see the guy downstairs telling on himself.

    In one of your comments above, you state the following:

    Unfortunately, some addicts using such treatments give birth do children, all of whom must detox in the NICU.

    Outstanding! And thanks to AOW I landed here (I still don’t have your new blog on my autofill).

    Re “real financial success isn’t the goal of the leftist party.” Correct! As Prager says, they want ‘equality’ not liberty. Having most people ‘successful’ because of a strong economy and peace through strength is not their goal. They’d rather we all be miserably poor equally (except for “them”selves, of course).

      Exactly, Baysider … they want equality of outcomes, even if someone else has to pay for it. Heaping on lots and lots of guilt helps, too. The problem is, people are no longer buying in to the guilt trip. Thank you for your comment. I post here once each week, on Monday.

    “I recently read where the California legislature is considering legalization of prostitution.” Yes, and there is a novel case working its way into the circuit courts that argues, in essence, how come you can give all kinds of services away for either money or for free, except sex, in private contracts? It makes for a lot of hair splitting among our libertarian friends. You really can’t argue “no” without being grounded in some kind of argument involving moral turpitude. With [situational] morality unlinked from its [God-based absolute] moorings it’s very easy to take this turn.

    Oh, I’m not sure: GOP administration, GOP congress, GOP Senate, 32 states with a GOP majority in both houses and GOP governors in 34 states.

    “do not finish high school include 33% of Hispanics, 13% of blacks, and 6% of whites.”…

    Mustang I believe it’s far worse than that.For example, I read it was that bastard propagandist, Zuckerbooger that donated 100 mil to Newark, NJ schools where less than 40% graduate High school and instead trade education for the guns, drugs, prostitution, illegitimacy, gangs, and death. And it’s their choice by God. Which proves the ‘theory’ of the Bell Curve IMO. The 13th and 14th Amendments are our suicide pacts. I honestly believe that about 25 states are going to go full out revolt and along with more than 1/2 of the country will be joined by a huge portion of those in the remaining 7 or so states ( the entire NE and west coast will go completely commie/fascist Antofa /BLM ). This experiment has met its end.
