THE POWER OF PROPAGANDA…


This may land me on the taboo list of some and place me squarely in the cross-hairs of the PC Police.  The Propaganda that is flooding the airwaves, filling the institutions of higher learning, being bandied about by government officials, and infiltrating some of our churches is powerful and dangerous.  

When I compare eras of the past with the modern era and the complete disconnect regarding a particular danger, I am both intrigued and disturbed.  We are inundated with the rhetoric and propaganda regarding a danger in our present world telling us that it is not a danger but a splintering off from something good.  The propaganda is working, and it is blinding millions to reality and anesthetizing us to the dangers lurking around us in plain sight.

I have asked people from time to time, “Can we survive in our blindness?”  I could add to that question, “Can the Republic survive as the Constitutional Republic in the current state of blindness?”  Some are wondering, what I’m talking about and I will get to that momentarily, but I contend that Political Correctness and the Propaganda being issued forth by every possible outlet that is drowning reason is plunging us toward destruction.  That train of chaos and destruction is picking up speed and unless it is derailed will rend our American Constitution into nothingness and the desired fundamental transformation of the Leftists will become a reality.

In 2017 a Muslim immigrant and asylum-seeker in Stockholm, Sweden, stole a beer truck and killed numerous people running them over with his weapon of choice, a truck.  In the 9/11 attack in New York City, thousands were needlessly slaughtered through an act of evil that still chills my soul.  In Madrid Spain, in 2004 there were 193 killed and 2,000 injured in a terrorist bombing.  In London, during the 2005 attack, the terrorist bombing killed 52 and injured 784.  In Paris 12 were killed and 11 injured in the offices of Charlie Hebdo by a terrorist.  Those are just a small sampling of the ever-increasing number of acts of terrorism committed by groups or individuals with a common thread in their mindset and makeup.

What is the Propaganda that is endangering our Republic, our people, and much of the world?  It is the insistence that we must tolerate religions such as Islam and reject the notion that they are spawning terrorist like those I mentioned in the attacks of late.  Are they the only groups and followers of a particular religion that commit acts of terrorism and carnage?  No, but they have a disproportionate number of followers who are engaged in or will be engaged in terrorism. 

The Propaganda that was heavily advanced by former President Obama, endorsed by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush that the religion of those terrorists is a religion of peace seems to lose credibility in the carnage.  Members of the New York Fire Department, London cab drivers, and Nigerian Christians are about the only groups who seem to see clearly the dangers and the threat.  Most people have bought the diatribe and even convoluted the teachings of Jesus to insist that we must be tolerant to our own hurt.  I believe in tolerance, understanding, and compassion.  I believe in forgiveness and second chances.  I believe also in facing reality and truth. 

I do not believe that all Muslims are terrorist or endorse terrorism.  I simply state that the book they call a holy book, their guide for life and government produces a disproportionate number of adherents who believe directives like Surah 8:39. They adopt them and make them the rule of their life, faith, and practice.  They believe it is their duty to fulfill the directives of passages like, “And fight them until there is no fitnah [i.e. worship in anything other than Allah] and until the religion, all of it, is for Allah.”

The stated view expressed by Syed Abul Ala Mawdudi, who died in 1979 said, “Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man.  The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all mankind to the faith of Islam.  Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.  In order to fulfill that goal, Islam can use every power available every way it can be used to bring worldwide revolution.  This is Jihad.”

The danger of ignoring the extremist in their religion or any religion cannot be overlooked.  America is being attacked from within and without by forces that want to bring us to our knees.  The Liberal Left views, as espoused and expressed by former President Barack Obama, is that America is undeserving of her status and blessings as a nation.  They view our American history, heritage, and ancestry as rooted in pride, arrogance, bigotry, racism, and evil in its basic makeup. 

I am not contending that all of them use those words but when you listen to what they say about America you hear it clearly.  When you observe their willingness to force us to be the sugar-daddy of the world and pay for everyone else, you see it.  When you listen to their insistence that we allow anyone and everyone, even those who want to work toward our destruction to have free access to this nation, you cannot miss it.

America, the propaganda is working, and multitudes have bought the idea that we cannot condemn evil and call it what it is, but we must be tolerant.  Tolerance by the followers of the Leftists Ideology of today means anyone opposing their views must be silenced and forced into submission.  However, they are allowed to vilify and violate those of us who refuse to be silent.

Can we survive if we continue in our willing blindness, deception, or denial of some very real and serious problems and concerns?  Can America remain the Free Constitutional Republic if we allow the Propaganda Machines to continue unimpeded?  Can we survive if we survive by casting off our foundational moral moorings?  Your concerns and answers to those questions will determine your vote in November 2020.

God bless you and God bless America!
