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.
We come as a great People of America and say to you Obama, You are not God, you are not our God and you don't have enough money, enough media coverage, enough ISIS Terrorists that will cause the People of America to Bow to your Immorality, to you thinking. May the people of America stand up now and take a right stand. You will not change how we think, you will not cause us to bow down to your evil Sodom and Terrorist evil. I will stand with the Lord God, Jesus Christ now and forever. No man will dictate to me how to think, nor force me or the True American People to bow down to you.
Americans must stop paying attention to the media. Just simply shut them out of our lives. They do nothing but lie and cover up for this evil tyrannical government. We can not apply one false word coming out of the media to our lives or the betterment of our nation. We learn and know more by relying on ourselves that the media. We have to research and verify every word the media puts out. So what is the point of even watching them? They truly are not even entertaining. All they do is aggravate us with more lies each day and cover ups.
Karol, my Mom, now deceased, when I was a Teen in the 1950's said when I asked her why she never watched TV, "because its all lies". And she was right! THAT was 60+ YEARS AGO! WHEN WILL AMERICANS LEARN!
I do get a kick out of ALL IN THE FAMILY and SEINFELD. And I do like my favorite Classic Movies.
Mostly, I read.
I HAVE TWO WORDS TO SAY TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!!! DROP DEAD!!!
"In other words, every so often, and usually by accident, they (libshits) tell the truth.”?!
Nope, their “truth” or “loyalty” is always to allah or satan, hence always an intentional LIE to US, the infidels.
Like “beauty”, truth is in the eyes of the beholder ...what’s ITs name tells us …"the holy queeran says be conscious of God and speak always the truth.”
Yet what the queeran says “O ye who believe! Be careful of your duty to allah, and be with the truthful.”
”We Must Change How America Thinks”
We are not a tyranny he is not a God. Although he believes himself to be. You can force people to think the way you do. He can try force but it won't work. This is his communist teaching coming out. It is our job to show the communist and defeat the communist.
Freedom of the Press did not take a Congressional law - Lincoln did it all on his own and Obama has strongly enforced it as well. The TV media is the voice of DC ! Period ! ALL propaganda ! So that Amendment was burned long ago. But I blame those who obey the tyrant - they need to stand up to him and say NO ! So do all the businesses who are held captive of the tyrant in DC by NOT obeying ANYTHING that is ordered - DC has no power that we do to give it. The Constitution certainly does not give power to DC or a president to be a Dictator, but it's happened, and the sheeple just keep obeying, committing Treason as they do so. They are to obey the Founders and the Constitution -- NOT what comes out of DC - and Jefferson came right tout and said so ! WE are to suppose to pay taxes to DC either or ANY direct taxes but we all pay at least 65 direct taxes now ! ALL UN-Constitutional ! !
Obama seems to be willing to step into the spotlight with a Bulls-eye on his forehead---statements. Sheesh!
Pushing the limits of the limits as he seems to want to do-----does he truly believe he is untouchable?
I would like to see his "untouchable" body sent to India with the rest of those untouchables ..
Our congress seems to think he a leper and untoudhable !
I recommend everyone be familiar with "The Quotations Of Chairman Mao Tse Tung" (The Little Red Book). Get the real thing, not somebody's analysis of it. My copy, the English Translation published in "Peking" in 1972. Short, easy to read, and most of the basics can be found in the first 30 (little) pages. I believe Saul Alinksy did nothing more than convert Mao's quotes into a 'How To' book for American radicals (communists). It sends a shivver up my spine every time Obama says something - maybe not word-for-word - that's right out of Mao Tse Tung.
Two-way communication requires listeners 'duplicate' and speakers be 'duplicatable.' Double-speak, changed-definitions, lies, and propaganda = no communication. Obama, the great orator, is unduplicatable, is not in communication with the rest of us. All his Marxist, Progressive, Liberals will eventually fade back into the Tower of Babel...Semper Fi Nam 66-67
If you can control what we hear and by that what we think we know you control the MASSES. Ring a BELL??
