Propaganda Cartoon

One thing I have to give Progressive credit for. They are very good at using propaganda. They are experts at manipulating people and using emotions. The Right as currently incarnated can’t even punch its way through a paper bag. The below clip is from the California Teacher Federation. It’s narrated by Marxist actor, Ed Asner. The cartoon is full of lies, but it is very simple and effective.

Why the Right can’t come up propaganda like this is beyond me.

    Meanwhile, California schools are ranked pretty much at the bottom, our drop out rate is almost 50%. Shows you why Charter Schools and Home Schooling is on the rise in this state, despite attempts by the jerks at the Teachers’ Union to stop it.

    @ Rodan:

    That is really the biggest part of our problem; We refuse to even acknowledge that the Propagnda works. There is a propaganda war ggoing on, but we refuse to participate, and like all unilateral disarmaments, all it does is allow our enemy to stomp on us. The Democrats have mastered the art of propaganda in a way that makes Goebbles look like an amature. We need to fight fire with fire, but I don’t see the Republican establishment doing that. We should be running commercials against Obama today in every major media market. Bring the message to the people that Obama is bringing this country down.

    Average income is falling fast and will continue to fall until our standard of living is low enough to be sustained by an lower paying job.
    How much that job pays is also based on the cost of compliance with government regulations and idiot trade deals.
    We also have to pay for the cost of engineering and design that the rest of the world steals when we send our manufacturing to China, that also cuts wages.

    I am shamed that my country has not stood up and gotten to the bottom of Benghazi. The entire fiasco stinks to high heaven, but the MFM dutifully follows the democrat party line, and the GOP allows the democrats and the MFM (one in the same) define the conversation.

    Families want to know what happened in Benghazi
    Obama administration not telling whole story, they say

    The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, says he learned the details of his son’s bravery not from the Obama administration, but in an email from an American whose life was saved by his son.

    Tyrone Woods, 41, was found “slumped over his machine gun, which was caked with blood,” Charles Woods, the former SEAL’s father, said during a telephone interview from his home in Hawaii.

    “He had continued to fire until he had no blood left and was unable to fire anymore,” Mr. Woods said.

    He did not identify the email’s sender but said he later spoke with the person who “told me how Ty died.”

    Washington politics has largely shifted attention from what actually happened nearly three months ago in the Benghazi attack, in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, former SEAL Glen Doherty and State Department officer Sean Smith also were slain.

    Republicans have accused the Obama administration of attributing the attack to spontaneous protests over a U.S.-made anti-Islam video, and not terrorists, in order to maintain the president’s foreign policy image before Election Day.

    The White House and congressional Democrats have accused Republicans of exploiting the situation for political gain.

    For family members such as Mr. Woods, the need to know what occurred in Benghazi is as real today as it was the moment they learned that their loved ones had perished.

    There’s plenty of good conservative ‘propaganda’ (I call it ‘truth’). Look at all the great stuff put out by Andrew Klaven, Bill Whittle, AlfonZo of ZoNation, … etc. on PJTV.

    Our problem is we can’t get it seen by the masses. We don’t control the public schools (and the billions of tax payer dollars) which the leftists use to propagandize our children.

    I have to admit that I was relieved when I reached the end of the video, without hearing Asner even once refer to those evil so-called “rich people” as “Jews.” Indeed, the most historically-anomalous (but very welcome) aspect of our current economic crisis is that, so far, the Jews have not been specifically singled-out for blame, scapegoating, and persecution (e.g., pogroms). Seriously, how long can this state of relative-sanity last?

    @ My 2 Cents:

    They’ve managed, so far, to constrain their anti-Semitism to the venue of Israel and the so-called Palestinians, but on that topic they are as vile as Julius Streicher. Outside of that, I think that it isn’t politically correct to be openly anti-Semitic, but it is politically correct to be “anti-Zionist”, which is the same thing. That state of affairs will last only so long as the Democrats find the Jewish vote more useful than having a Semitic boogyman to distract the population with.

    I agree with you generally, but I still note that the popular press are not (yet) blaming America’s economic crisis specifically on Israel either, although it is occasionally asserted that we waste money on Israel that should stay here.
    Overall, I am stunned that the current level of *public* antisemitism (especially given the influence of Islamists, black liberation theology, etc) in the US is so (relatively-speaking) low!


  27. 27 | December 5, 2012 12:53 pm

    Since Proposition 30 has already passed in California, which increases taxes on the “rich,” I have to say I’m somewhat at a loss to understand why they felt the need to expend those funds they say are limited to produce such a “public service” ad. I’d like to remind people that live outside the Golden State that we have two lotteries -- California Lottery and the multi-state Megamillions -- which are supposed to provide funding for schools. In addition, we have, because liberals love to “budget by ballot” and passed Prop 98 which allocated a 39% baseline of the California budget for education. Now the passage of Prop 30 last election supposedly affords even more money going to the schools (ostensibly to make up for the baseline budgeting that was “appropriated” to pay for other things). So you ask yourself -- “what’s the point of this.”

    The answer: Proposition 13. Jerry Brown and the Democrat supermajorities more than anything want to eviscerate Prop 13, especially the provisions that require taxpayer approval by 2/3rds of tax increases. If you paint Prop 13 as a big tax break for the wealthy with their McMansions, etc., you will be able to get pull onboard those who have either lost their homes or never owned homes to begin with. No one will remember why Prop 13 was passed in the first place -- that people were losing their homes in the 1970′s not to foreclosure or recession but to the prohibitive property taxes passed by every county.

    I never understood that firestorm. Am I incorrect in my understanding that US Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President? My wife has been with the USAO Office since Reagan and the USAO changes with administrations, like clockwork.

    Would I be correct in the assumption that the USAOs traditionally tender their resignations and these ones who were fired did not?

    Governments almost never actually cut spending. Even the Ryan budget would have been more “cuts” that meant things grew more slowly that real, substantive cuts, and look at hw the Left squawked about that. When local governments Do really cut, though, they usually make sure that the cuts hurt the public rather than cutting real fat. That is how Republican Don Sundquist handled it here in Tennessee when we wouldn’t go along with his plan to create a state income tax. It can help if you get rid of the politician. We got rid of Sundquist and replaced him with one of the rare breed of conservative Democrats, Phil Bredesen. Bredesen managed not to run much of a deficit without creating a State income tax for 8 years, and now we are in a real Republican administration and things are still running smoothly (relatively speaking) without a State income tax. The problem is being able to hold the politician’s feet to the fire. Real Conservative Democrats are rarer than hen’s teeth. Bredesen has no future in national politics because the Democrats have become so far Left. It is a shame, really. He wasn’t a bad governor at all.

    Detroit councilwoman to Obama: We voted for you, now bail us out

    A Detroit city council member is asking President Obama to bail out the financially troubled city in return for residents’ overwhelmingly supporting his successful re-election bid.

    “There ought to be a quid pro quo,” said Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, according to My Fox Detroit.

    Nearly 75 percent of voters in Wayne County, which includes Detroit, voted for Obama on Nov. 6.

    “After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C., and came home with some bacon,” Watson said. “That’s what you do,” Watson said.

    Young was Detroit’s mayor for 20 years and served as vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1977 to 1981.
