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.
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. 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.
 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.
 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.
