During President Barack Obama’s recent visit to Georgetown University, his message to students was quite simple — that progressives like himself must mold how America thinks and make the media report things the way they want.
“[W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues,” Obama recently declared on the Georgetown campus in the nation’s capital.
Obama was specifically targeting Fox News with his contempt, generally speaking aoubt other conservative new media, as well.
This proclamation was eerily reminiscent of a certain communist leader in North Korea … a point made by a nationally syndicated conservative columnist.
“How Kim Jong-un of him,” Townhall Columnist Matt Barber commented about Obama’s declared war on the conservative media. “In sum: Goal 1) Control thought by, Goal 2) Controlling the media.”
Barber argues that Obama’s ideas are repackaged directly from the most notorious socialist leader of the 20thcentury.
“This is an idea older than — and as well preserved as — Vladimir Lenin himself,” Barber asserts. “How Dear Leader intends to reconcile his scheme to ‘change how the media reports on these issues’ with the First Amendment’s Free Press Clause, namely, ‘Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom … of the press,’ is abundantly clear.”
Obama’s earlier attempt to filter American media through the White House — which was blocked by the FCC — and his more recent stab at controlling the Internet are argued to be topics of major concern.
“Our emperor-in-chief will force feed his once-free subjects, yet another unconstitutional executive decree — a Net Neutrality sandwich with a side of Fairness Doctrine,” Barber insisted.
Barber then went on to describe the world of double meanings he says are forever emanating from the Left, nothing how they have gotten in the habit of redefining terms that used to have straightforward meanings that everybody understood, including “marriage,” “equality” and other terms that are politically charged today.
“Other ‘progressive’ doublespeak includes words like ‘invest’ (meaning socialist redistribution of wealth), ‘tolerance’ (meaning embrace immorality or face total ruin), ‘diversity’ (meaning Christians and conservatives need not apply), ‘hate’ (meaning truth) or ‘The Affordable Care Act’ (meaning unaffordable, unsustainable and utterly inferior socialized medicine),” Barber pointed out. “Even so, it’s during those rare moments of candor that our cultural Marxist friends’ rhetoric actually aligns with their intended actions. In other words, every so often, and usually by accident, they tell the truth.”
Passing the torch?
Hoping to reoccupy the White House for another eight-year stint come 2017 — this time as president, rather than first lady — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also made her position clear when it comes to shaping America’s mindset on social and moral issues. She let her LGBT activist roots show when she insisted last month that the government must force the religious convictions of Christians to support abortion.
IF WE DO NOT DO SOMETHING NOW WE WILL HAVE A FIGHT ON OUR HANDS WE MAY NOT WANT
I FEAR IT IS CLOSER THAN ANYONE CAN PREDICT.
OVOMITHITLER IS HITLER; STALIN; MAO; CASTRO AND ALL COMMUNIST LEADERS IN ONE TOTAL CONTROL OVER US ALL IS THIS THE NATION WE WANT I SAY HELL NO SO WHERE THE DAM HELL ARE WE?
The war will be here by the end of September, be ready.
I believe you are correct, Steve. I just ordered my 12 months of emergency rations... fully stocked with other supplies... I'm ready.
Steve, I think you are correct! One more blood moon in Sept...
I think he is an ass hole. There that should give you a thought to try changing.
He is moving forward with his plan to destroy all that we know of as peace and normal existence. He is satanic inspired and will not stop until he is confronted and forced to return to the pit he came from. Our spineless Congress and Senate although it has the power to confront him will not because he has control over them because of their greed and self serving interests. Certainly not the good of this nation. We need a total purge of the government and a reinstatement and enforcement of the laws which govern them.
Quick shift those chairs around on this ship "THE USS TITANIC" aka The USA !
The facts are clear ! The USA is going down and we rush about frantically moving chairs and miss the biggest problem and it is not OBAMA or Democrats ! IT IS THE SYSTEM and politics is but one small part of this problem...
We are fast approaching the abyss and we keep looking at the present [ who is at the helm ] rather than at the very structure of the system and why we will soon go under!
The fact is that we have friends on this board that do have the answer ! And that answer is the Convention of states to revisit the Constitution and correct the accumulated laws and actions that are the foundation of our problems !
Every person on this board should get a copy of the constitution and study it and look at all the things that were altered for political goals at the expense of freedom and liberty!
Some of those things will make you very unhappy considering that you were raised to believe that we are a democracy ! [we were not intended to be]
Here are just a few you might not like !
Universal suffrage Vs limited suffrage based on your owning land [ being a productive citizen ] is how the founders viewed that !
The Federal Reserve act giving the power of the currency to private banks? DUH real stupid
Taxing income [started as a tax the rich plan] and we see where that went?
Social Security and Medicare and medicaid ? super ponzi plan to rape you financially and it has.
All those laws which you favor ? Drug laws and laws to protect you from yourself like seat belt and Motor cycle helmet laws as just the beginning? There are hundreds that sound so good... all are Authoritarian and anti freedom.
The Convention of states is our last best shot at saving the republic but are our citizens up to the challenge or are we so indoctrinated as to be incapable of seeing that freedom is the only answer that will save the republic?
Well citizens of the republic are you willing to give up all that safety and security for FREEDOM?
I doubt it! so show me!
"Change" is the keyword to Communism. Ref: Whittaker Chambers. Amazing how we have been able "To Think" for over 200 years, and been able to create the most advanced, most civilized Country in the World, where people were free to rise according to their ability "to think". Now with Common Core, all thinking seems to be passe, just not necessary, just memorize the stuff, and never worry about analyzing it, or thinking about it. This perilous path is beginning to show, from ignorant Clerks, to Administrators who simply cannot handle anything the least bit complex. Reminds me of the old adage, "If it is not broken, don't fix it". This type of thought is simply Mind Control. All the "Change" we need is New leadership.
How much more can Congress take before acting to rid this man from the White House.
