The Information Iron Curtain that Ensnares Liberals

With the greatest information delivery machine that humankind has ever known – the Internet – how can those on the Left be so utterly ignorant?

Published

on

The Arizona audit of the 2020 election is showing fraud on such a massive scale that even those who initially suspected fraud are stunned. Yet, other than a handful of alternative conservative news outlets, this historic theft of democracy is receiving relatively little coverage.

Most conservatives are still not aware of the latest findings, while virtually all liberals continue to regard the fraud as a made-up, non-issue. Some will even bristle if you bring up the topic. And why would liberals act any differently? They represent the mainstream media’s targets and are fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda. Most of them are clueless about U.S. or world affairs (most recently, Cuba), and it has been this way not just for this past year, or for several years, but for decades.

The brunt of liberals have no idea about Biden’s outrageous blunders in the Middle East, or his abhorrent refusal to speak up about Cuba. Most have no idea how Biden enabled China to inexorably diminish U.S. power and influence while enhancing their own. Too many have zero understanding of how Biden’s dalliance with Iran threatens the world.

Living without a Clue

It is said that ignorance is bliss, but I don’t think so. Liberals have no clue as to the Biden crime family’s vast and blatant offenses against America. Most have less than scattershot knowledge of how Joe Biden personally enriched himself by literally selling out the American worker. Many have no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s continuing nefarious activities with Ukraine, Russia, and elsewhere. That Hunter Biden’s incriminating laptop was real is unknown to the liberal masses.

Many liberals have no idea that Joe Biden’s picks for various cabinet posts and other top positions were precarious at best, and that the credentials of the people he nominated were highly questionable, even among Democrat congressional representatives and senators.

Only when you visit alternative news site on the internet, those not dominated by “progressive Leftists,” do you see that Joe Biden, or more specifically, his handlers, are making a highly regrettable mess domestically and internationally.

One shudders to think what will happen to our country and to the world if he and his utterly incompetent vice president remain in office for another terrifying 42 months.

“Woke” and Brainwashed

A poll of Democrats earlier this year proved to be illuminating. When asked what their number one concern was, unquestionably it was “Trump voters.” Thus, despite all the vital events occurring here and abroad, the Leftist media machine has so utterly brainwashed their readership that these poor souls believe that somehow someway, Trump voters are the biggest problem confronting the country, followed by white nationalism, and systemic racism.

The poll signifies how utterly brainwashed Democrats are, but we already understand that this group has been brainwashed for eons. It is not entirely surprising that Trump voters, continually demonized over months and even years, are seen as the nation’s number one concern.

In mid-2021, for such an intellectual and informational chasm to exist is a curious development for sociologists to study for years to come. How, in a world with the greatest information delivery machine that humankind has ever known – the Internet – can half of the populace be so utterly ignorant? The answer, seemingly, is that an “Information Iron Curtain” has descended upon them.

Clueless and Cloistered

While they are free to click on any news sites and gain perspectives that cannot otherwise be gleaned from the sites they patronize each day, they never do. The irony is that they are seconds away from gaining some semblance of objectivity.

Those on the right have no choice but to be exposed to the news and views of the Left all day long, every day, week in and week out, because the mainstream media dominates discourse in our society. We know what liberals are being told, and we know what conservatives are being told.

Dominated by Facebook, Google, and Twitter online, and major newspapers in print, Liberals have little to no idea about conservatives, what they read and think, because the news and opinions to which liberals are exposed about conservatives arrive through the stringent and sordid filter of the mainstream media and information machine. And make no mistake, the mainstream media has no intention, ever, of offering a balanced perspective.

Righteous, and Wrong

Too many on the left listen to only the first couple seconds of a broadcast, read only the headlines or the captions in a news article, surf the same old websites, shallow full bore whatever they see on Google or Facebook, and converse only with one another. They blissfully, arrogantly proceed throughout their day confident in the knowledge that they know exactly what’s going on. As such, they “know” that Trump voters and their views are evil and need to be purged.

Author George Orwell called it accurately in his classic book, 1984, when he described how newspeak – propagandist verbiage characterized by circumlocution, euphemism, and the inversion of customary meanings – dominated public discourse.

For now, newspeak dominates only among the people who won’t look any further. The rest of us? We will continue to read multiple sources, ferret out what’s actually happening, separate the wheat from the chaff, and ignore stories that rely on anonymous sources and alleged spokespersons, and strive to learn what is true. What is true at this moment is that Trump won in Arizona, his electoral votes were given to Biden, and other state’s audits are likely to reveal the same.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

If you’re having trouble listening to Joe for more than a minute, the tool above might work for you. On the Facebook site, “Best of the Web,” I saw this Biden bingo card. It could help you to stay the course when tuned into other broadcasts featuring our acting president.

‘Anti-Racists’ are Racist: Do Not Apologize for Being White

‘Anti-racists’ claim that whites, by virtue of their skin color, are detrimental to society

Published

on

Ibram X. Kendri, the bigoted professor from Boston University and director of their Center for Antiracist Research, says that whiteness is a problem for all of society, indeed for the entire globe. Who knew?!

Kendri, who was included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, seemingly knows a lot about white people. In fact, he professes to know about every white person in America if not all over the world.

Me? I’m one of those people who merely gets up every day, brushes his teeth, gets dressed, eats a decent breakfast, and goes to work. I had no inkling that in the U.S. and other western nations white people like me had been “socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white.” How naive I have been all these years!

Now I discover that to be “less white” is a virtue! It requires one to be “less oppressive, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant,” and, more humble, more willing to listen, more willing to believe, and, get this, “to break with the apathy” that white people like me exhibit and “to break with white solidarity.”

Woke Institutions and Brainwashed Authors

White solidarity? Darn, nobody told me about this. Thank goodness it’s all become so clear thanks to enlightened (white) authors such as Robin DiAngelo, who wrote the thoroughly racist and condescending book White Fragility, and thanks to companies such as Coca-Cola which have the foresight to impose programs for its white employees, to be less white.

When there’s a challenge in front of me, I actually do strive to find the right answer, particularly something related to numbers. I will collaborate on occasion, but most of the time I prefer to figure out things for myself, aided by the “all-knowing” Internet.

Am I arrogant, oppressive,  defensive, or ignorant? No one has ever brought this up. Being white, however, I guess I can’t help it! I don’t seek to inhibit the success of others, but I’m now informed that by virtue of my skin color I am detrimental to society. Mea culpa!

The Anti-Racist Racists

With Coca-Cola and other organizations teaching white people to be less white, I’m wondering, will the sequel be how Asians can be less yellow and Indians can be less brown? In America, both groups seem to excel academically. Perhaps only domineering Caucasians, particularly 60+ white males like me, however, are the ones upsetting the apple cart all over society.

Was I given a free pass for the last 40 years? I mean, all the while nobody mentioned my whiteness as a social and cultural problem. My black friends from Little League, high school, various hiking groups, and other groups around town haven’t said squat. So, up ’til now, presumably, I was doing okay. Perhaps they’ve merely been nice to me while whispering behind my back.

Heeding the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I thought our common goal was to live in harmony and to reach a state of color blindness where people were judged by the content of their character and not by their skin color. Hmmm…  I guess that is no longer in play.

I’m wondering, what would MLK conclude about today? Would he speak up against the propensity of the Left to define everybody else by class, sex, or race? Would he be opposed to pitting young against old, rich against poor, black against white, rural against urban, male against female, and all the other phony dichotomies that the Left relentlessly promulgates each day?

Absurd From the Get-Go

Imagine the unending uproar if someone drew up a list of how hundreds of millions of black people all over the world could become “less black.” The  absurdity of regarding all white people, hundreds of millions of them, as having a general set of characteristics, let alone having those characteristics be detrimental to society, is the grand facade of the ages.

How long will “woke” organizations maintain this illusion? Have they been coerced to the point where they’re afraid to say, “This is ridiculous, and needs to stop now”? [Actually, they have been coerced.] Will decades pass before we see the end of this malarkey?

I do not apologize for being a white person, just as no person of color has to apologize for their ethnic background, skin color, race, or religion. If you’re a good citizen who respects the rights of others, that, my friend, is sufficient.

Morgan Freeman, who played God in the movie Bruce Almighty, wishes we would do away with Black History month and merely have history. Freeman also wants us to stop regarding individuals as black and white and simply let people be people. Amen to that.
