The war that's being lost...

Necrothreading much?

... Is a total war, and we are losing it on all fronts, despite a few limited victories in a few skirmishes here and there. I am talking about the culture war—perhaps the most crucial of all, as its outcome has a direct influence in shaping Western societies, and as a result the rest of the world.

And by "all fronts", I do mean "all fronts". Example? Example:
Goofs: Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The Government minister in charge of closing down the pirate radio stations is depicted as a right-wing reactionary, with a grand home with servants. In fact the responsible minister was Tony Benn, then the Labour government Postmaster General at the time, who is known as one of the most left-wing and socialist senior politicians ever.
Excuse me but... Goof? That is no goof but part of a deliberate, resolute and permanent effort at rewriting history and flooding pop (and therefore mass) culture with radical Left-wing propaganda, by those peculiar "wreched of the Earth" and "oppressed masses" who appear, somehow, to flock in the entertainment and 'information' industry at large (movies, music, video games & IT, media, etc) rather than having it easy in jobs like coal mining. Or steelworks. You know, stuff for rednecks who lack the political sophistication and motivation of great Modern American Thinkers like Richard Gere, and would vote for Sarah Palin the minute ACORN stops looking and filling the ballot box with Mickey Mouse and Saddam Hussein votes.

The sooner we understand the constant, relentless nature of this vast and distributed fight for Collectivism, the sooner we can start devising ways to counter this constant shelling of distortions, lies and crass propaganda in the media, movies, and entertainment industry at large.

While spending our hard-earned right-wing reactionary monies on something else than "The Boat That Rocked" is admittedly a small step, it is how every good start begins— and it takes every one of us, and the choices we make as individuals every day, even in such mundane matters as personal entertainment, if we are to see any hope for the final liberation of Man from those reactionary tribal apes.

And thus the reason why my family and I rarely if ever go to the movies and rarely even rent them. Most of what's produced is annoying dross anyway, and the ideological bias is a blatant wart as well. That which we do view, we either screen carefully or, if it turns out to be a clunker of a propaganda vehicle my husband and I make sure to mock in front of the kids (that way they learn to be discerning, I hope). We mock a lot of things in pop culture...

Reading is a far more enjoyable activity -- and the sheer volume of just the classics (which a person can buy for small change at the used bookstore) can keep you busy for a lifetime -- and talking/arguing about what you read is a great excercise in critical thinking. That and some form of physical activity whereby you can learn new things (there are a million things one can learn to do from hunting to fishing to gardening to needlework which are far more enjoyable than sitting on your bum, a captive to some screen -- as admittedly I'm doing right now but perhaps that is different).

Keeps you from becoming a drone, which once you've become one you're wide open for suggestion and being led about by the nose.

O/T: another one of my children just graduated from basic training, so I must brag a bit. Even more so as she scored 3rd highest in her battalion on the pt test, only 10 pts. below the high score in her company...all against rather strapping young men who are at least a head taller and many pounds heavier than her (this child is rather a slender, willowy, and quiet thing...of all my kids the one we all thought least likely to make a soldier; joke was on us as she's doing quite well). The nickname the sargeants gave her: The Beast, because she pt'd the men in her company into the freaking ground! (on another note, my kids are all following the same odd and exasperating trend with BRM -- how anyone can ace the kneeling position, come within a point of nailing the standing position, and can then totally muff the prone is beyond comprehension to both their parents and the military; they've both done this...with the exact same scores...totally bizarre). Yes, I am bragging a bit, please excuse, but I think yet another of my children just proved herself not of the drone category, no? I hope and pray the rest will follow the same pattern (maybe not with the marksmanship) and not fall prey to what's being force fed them everytime they step out of the house!

The rewritting of history has been and effective tactic from the left for decades. Just look at the whitewash job they have so successfully done on Woodrow Wilson, hell, and Teddy Roosevelt. Both proud "progressives" who embraced the tenets of socialism in their admins. How many people remember Wilson's decree which removed ALL Negroes from US Government positions and jobs, or the thousands of people he had rounded up and imprisoned for simply voicing the opposition to AMerica's entry into WWI? Not very damned many!!

As for Teddy, he is hailed as a great thinker for instigating the most massive USG seizure of land in our history, the National Park System, effectively closing off access to natural resources to the people of America to this very day.

He who controls the past controls the present, and directs the future. That is not just a catchy lyric from a rock&roll song.

"the choices we make as individuals every day, even in such mundane matters as personal entertainment"

Fortunately, this is not difficult for me! When I think of the odious positions some of these folk hold and what the consequences are for my country, I find it hard to be "entertained" by them!

Despite being a dirty liberal, I do enjoy browsing your site. It's very well designed, funny and offers a alternative viewpoint on world affairs that sometimes does make me change my viewpoint. However, some things border on laughable.

"part of a deliberate, resolute and permanent effort at rewriting history and flooding pop (and therefore mass) culture with radical Left-wing propaganda, by those peculiar "wreched of the Earth" and "oppressed masses" "

My god, can you sound any more dellusional? Fox News, the staple of right-wing, pro-American media is the most watched television channel in the United States. Political commentators such as Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity are enjoying a surge in support. People carry signs that say 'Glenn Beck for President' at rallies. It takes the IQ of a tomato plant to think someone with little more than an excess of conservative rage is fit to lead the most powerful nation on earth. What do they have in common? They're all Republicans. Rapid right-wing media is back, in all it's frothy, screaming, baseless glory and yet...radical Left-wing propaganda? I'm curious; if these knivving, malicious hippies are seemingly so intent and powerful how come conservative media rallied a nation to go to war with Iraq, defeat health-care initiatives and turn the southern border into something resembling Berlin from the end of the second world war to 1989?

Great tactic, hotel! Completely ignore my points and refer to me as a leftard, well done. I knew I would be met with hostility but I thought some effort would be made to at least prove me wrong instead of simply ignoring any facts I put forward.

You have nothing to say worth listening too.

You have said nothing to be refuted, merely that which needs derision heaped upon it.

You mean Fox isn't the most watched cable news network in the United States?

http://www.tvweek.com/news/2009/03/cnn_ratings_down_fox_msnbc_gro.php

Can you really tell me it wasn't the conservative's masterful handling of the media which almost single-handedly brought down Obama's attempts at reform? Looking at the pre-Iraq war statistics of those supporting the war and those same statistics now, can you really say the media played no part in leading the charge to attack Iraq? Are you really able to say that political commentators have gained prominence in politics and the news since Obama took office?

Do you think of these things? Do you even pay attention to facts, statistics and numbers? You haven't proved me wrong, and haven't challenged the legitimacy of my claims on any level, so why does it deserve to be derided?

I know at this point I'm most likely just feeding the troll but I'm not entirely convinced that the GOP (lol what a stupid nickname) followers aren't really the intellectual equivilant of aborted fetuses.
