The Obama War with EastAsia

Timothy Birdnow

Judicial Watch has uncovered documents proving that the Obama Administration actively blacklisted Fox News.

To their credit, the other news outlets - the Liberal outlets - protested one action taken to keep Fox from covering an event.

The sad fact is that the Left demands total media access on all occasions in the interest of the "public's right to know" yet many on the Left have no problem with censoring news sources unfriendly to their particular agenda. Consider the endless efforts at reimposing the "Fairness Doctrine" and "Net Neutrality", efforts designed to force Conservative bloggers and citizen journalists from the field. Consider the legal attacks on James O'Keefe for exposing Planned Parenthood and ACORN, or the constant assaults on Andrew Breitbart.

No, most of those on the Left view truth as a moldable commodity, and through repetition of their own views they can MAKE reality what they want it to be. What they cannot tolerate is a strong dissenting voice.

George Orwell said it best in his novel 1984;

"In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?"

End excerpt.

And it is this viewpoint that keeps the Left engaged in all manner of things. The sillier things "visualize World Peace" for example, or the "Coexist" bumper stickers may be laughable, but other concepts aren't so funny; cultural relativism, for instance, which puts cultures such as the Islamic World not just on an equal footing with our own but actually elevates them to higher status, despite being morally evil in many ways. How about the concept that everyone has their own reality and we cannot understand another's fully so we cannot judge? That one emerged back in the '80's and it said that judgementalism was the only moral evil, so anything, no matter how detestable, should be tolerated. They called it "tolerance" which meant excusing bad behavior. No wonder we had a terrible crime problem in the 1990's.

White guilt is a triumph of liberal thought; the notion that whites are the root of all evil. The wealthy white liberals are infected with this bad idea, and many of them detest who they are, and indeed the whole country as some sort of evil when in fact that has never been the case.

These things would have remained ivory-tower parlor games had it not been for a leftist media eager to promote them to the general public. With media pressure they ended up the the schools, being taught to innocent minds who would then accept it as reality. These are not reality; they are lies. But these lies were built and are constantly reinforced by the leftist media.

And the key to this game is to maintain a blackout of opposing views. Everyone has to hear only their side or the "concensus" falls apart - like the "concensus" for global warming has collapsed. It never would have without the internet, talk radio, and a few Conservative news outlets.

So Obama tries to marginalize his critics. It's no surprise; he not only loves Big Brother, he seeks to emulate him!
