The political and social strategy of the radicals in Washington is clear:
* Control the narrative
* Control public opinion
* Control the culture
* Control the vote
* Repeat the pattern until such time that the Country implodes (and/or is severely weakened socially, morally, economically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually).
The easiest way to control the narrative is through the utilization and manipulation of a complicit media to define the issues ‘that matter’ and promote the political ‘solution.’ Achieving such ends is made easier (and more convenient) by creating little slogans or labels and basically beating the community-at-large (consisting of friend, foe, and everyone in between) over the head with it…..repeatedly…..time and time again……at nauseum.
Throw in today’s divided and demoralized social-political climate, a little bit of apathy, and some low voter IQ – and watch a considerable majority of the population blindly respond to the promise (no matter how empty) of a greater future or even a greater present! We are currently witnessing an impenetrable monopoly on the nation as applied by a strongly unified, radically-progressive elite.
Let’s consider the trendy ‘catchphrases’ used to advance the talking points of the liberal-left. After all, both the agendas and the hypocrisies are easily identified upon close examination – it all depends on your degree of impartiality. Anybody with a shred of decency and common sense will observe a comprehensive unwillingness on the part of the radical left to advance any kind of practical, ethical, or moral decisions/policies for the good of the people.
‘War On Women’ – A label used, most often in relation to mandated healthcare coverage, to disparage conservative efforts to protect employers’ “rights of conscience”, restrict taxpayer- funded abortions, and require women to pay for their own sexual contraception.
The Hypocrisy – Many liberal progressives, including the POTUS, endorse (or remain silent) as women and young girls are repressed, silenced, breaten, raped, murdered, discriminated, insulted, and humiliated in the name of Allah! Which party is really the one complicit in a ‘War on Women’?
‘Marriage Equality’ – A term used to neuter and neutralize efforts to uphold traditional marriage.
The Hypocrisy – So marriage is what based on what???
What we really have here is a purposefully arbitrary failure to actually redefine marriage in any meaningful or consistent way, leaving the door wide open for endless consequence and confusion.
‘Voters Rights’ – The idea that implementing safeguards, in the form of requiring proper ID at election polls, is somehow a racist proposition.
The Hypocrisy – I never understood how the Dems try to connect voter ID to racism – if I was African-American, I would be offended by such perspectives. Are they actually insinuating that African-Americans, and minorities in general, cannot obtain valid ID? That’s a backwards generalization if I ever heard one! Shouldn’t we look to protect one of our most sacred privileges from fraud and corruption?
‘Anti-Immigration’ – A term used to vilify those who seek to uphold current immigration laws against violators and/or those who attempt to do so.
The Hypocrisy – Reckless executive orders rewarding incarcerated illegals. These recent ‘random pardons’ fly in the face of sound national security policy and protections that seek to minimize opportunity to those who look to abuse our systems (or even worse, engage in terrorist activities on our soil.) Rather, let’s support those who proudly await ‘legal’ entrance/naturalization – that we may once again be a land of opportunity!
‘Islamaphobia’ (Related: ‘Man-CAUSED Disaster) – A term used to condemn those who seek to remain vigilant against Jihadists.
DHS head Janet Napolitano prefers a different descriptor when addressing acts of terror –
“I presume there is always a threat from terrorism…I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.” This is why the massacre committed by the radical Fort Hood ‘terrorist’ was swiftly deemed an act of “workplace violence.”
The Hypocrisy: I guess a tendency to facilitate these “man-caused disasters” are being projected upon angry, God-fearing patriots. You know, those freedom-loving Constitutionalists who seem to be at the top of our government’s hit-list these days. They continue to be unreasonably and unjustifiably identified as having major insurrection potential.
‘Gun control’ – The term used to condemn those who oppose excessive gun restrictions/regulations (regardless of the 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms.)
The Hypocrisy – Most high-profile gun-control advocates (NY Mayor Bloomberg immediately comes to mind) are well protected by a plethora of armed guards. Even worse is how this administration continues to heavily arm those whose job it is to identify and control terror threats – you know, those tea-party activists. DHS is rapidly shifting their focus away from foreign infiltrations toward home-grown domestic agitators of the God fearing, patriotic sort. Again, remember who’s at the top of that list! Who needs protection from who in this scenario?
‘Domestic Security Surveillance’ – National security can essentially be claimed to justify even the most intrusive violation of personal dignity. But the Constitution and the majority of Americans resist these extensive intrusions without just cause.
“In the wake of 9/11, mass surveillance has become one of the U.S. government’s principal strategies for protecting national security. Over the past decade, the government has asserted sweeping power to conduct dragnet collection and analysis of innocent Americans’ telephone calls and e-mails, web browsing records, financial records, credit reports, and library records. The government has also asserted expansive authority to monitor Americans’ peaceful political and religious activities.” – ACLU
The Hypocrisy – The POTUS has yet to release his college transcript or a legitimate birth certificate/social security card (and has spent reportedly $5 million in legal fees to keep his records hidden). So far, the unprecedented and extensive information gathering has not been as successful in stopping acts of terror as it has in punishing, blackmailing, and threatening political enemies, impartial journalists, and those who oppose government’s agenda-based legislation!
Again, beware of government propaganda; and whenever a statement comes out of the White House, be sure to always read between the lines. Be cognizant of the hidden meanings, indoctrination efforts, and the overall agenda. Don’t let the government tell you how to think! Do your own research so you can consider all the long-term ramification/consequences and ultimately decide for yourself what is most important!
