As a refugee from a criminal, totalitarian, communist country, I arrived in the U.S. in 1967.
About 1969, after reading The Washington Post–which I later re-named The Washington Pest–and watching the main three TV networks, I realized that there was something wrong with the mainstream media in the U.S.
When you know a subject because of firsthand experience, you cannot be deceived. What they were reporting about my former country was not true. They typically misrepresented Cuban exiles and called them names. Now this technique is being called “fake news.”
I came to realize what they were doing was destructive, so the media was my enemy and an enemy of the people who wanted freedom in my former country.
Meanwhile, the coverage was mostly complimentary of the brutal communist tyrant who destroyed my former country, and of his “accomplishments”–parroting official misinformation and unverifiable statistics from the regime there. Fake news.
Some years later, as a naturalized citizen, I had to suffer the indignities of TV reports from Barbara Walters, Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, Diane Sawyer, Bryant Gumbel, Katie Couric and other leading establishment “reporters”, including government- and viewer-supported PBS.
Their fake news contributed to the deaths and suffering at the hands of the communist regime in Cuba. They have blood on their hands.
But, from November 1999 through June 2000, during the Elian Gonzalez affair, is when the U.S. media removed their masks and openly began their vicious hatred campaign and character assassination of the Cuban exile community in the U.S. Fake news.
It generated a very tense situation in the businesses and workplaces where Cuban exiles became afraid, were insulted, laughed at, labeled, menaced and silenced out of fear of reprisals. And, throw in some fake humor with the truly racist cartoons by Herblock in The Washington Pest. Racist news.
That same shameless media reappeared after Obama arrived in the White House in 2009, in relation to the Tea Party. I recognized the same vitriolic hate campaign and character assassination with its myriad of negative epithets that the Cuban exile community went through previously. They pulled out the same, tired (although still successful) Marxist-Leninist technique of fake news.
The September 12, 2009 huge Tea Party demonstration in Washington, D.C. was denied the coverage it merited by the same media culprits. Fake news.
It was obvious that the mainstream U.S. media got in bed with Obama and his regime and preferred Hillary as his continuation. They pushed hard for Obama in 2008 and 2012, and for Hillary in 2016. Fake news.
How can anybody who faces the truth about Benghazi, where so many lies, deceptions and such dereliction of duty took place on the part of Obama and Hillary, still feel admiration and support for them? Have you seen the film 13 Hours and the horrors it depicts? Obama and Hillary, the main players in the event, were left out. Why? Their policies produced havoc and cost many lives in the Middle East and the U.S. The mainstream media know, but they willingly chose to deliver the deception to the American people.
This part of the plan, to force their ideas on others using deception, is the end result of the takeover of academia by Marxist professors and teachers, and what they have been drilling into the students from kindergarten on–creating “snowflakes.”
For those who still have not connected the dots due to so much misinformation and propaganda from the mainstream media, I want to clarify: Marxism is the root of Communism, National Socialism/Fascism, Socialism, collectivism and progressivism. The spread of Marxism in the U.S. has distorted “liberalism” into the antithesis of liberty and diverted the Democrat Party into a foreign ideology the exact opposite of the foundation of the country under the Constitution.
The Democrat Party left America decades ago. Many Democrat members of Congress joined the Democratic Socialists of America, an international front organization under the tutelage of the former Soviet Union. And now it is part of the international communist network.
All of the above fanaticism aims to take us to an all-powerful government where a ruling elite and bureaucracy dictate all aspects of our public and private lives.
It means to lead us to a “utopian” society where you have to follow and obey all dictums of the leadership without question–where there is no individuality for the common citizen. You could be deprived of all freedoms and have to conform to rules and regulations galore, just like in Cuba. Also, as in Cuba, the “utopian” part applies only to the elite. Not a pretty picture.
So, all these journalists, reporters, politicians and students have been indoctrinated to follow that path for at least two generations. So we are in a difficult situation. People who understand Marxism are right to be afraid of the turn to the Left the country is taking, the election of Donald Trump notwithstanding.
It is time for a real change to “We the people” in accordance with the extraordinary document called The Declaration of Independence. This is the change to believe in.
The violent and vitriolic demonstrations we are seeing are the direct result of decades of fanatic intolerance, disrespect, hate crimes, destruction of private property, divide and conquer, and the pillars of Marxist philosophy being delivered by schools, media and Hollywood.
The lack of fear of collectivist ideology among the younger generation is due to the fact they have not learned real history, civics, or how to be responsible citizens of a self-governing republic. This is a generation primed to become fanatical sore losers rather than respect the outcome of elections regardless of which candidate wins or loses.
The real “irredeemable deplorable” in this case is the corrupt and deceptive mainstream U.S. media–with very few exceptions–which is participating in the so-called “resistance.” It is promoting the demonstrations with its biased coverage and fake news.
For years, long before Trump, I concluded that the mainstream U.S. media deserve to be called the enemies of the American people who want safety and prosperity–and don’t forget LIBERTY, which is the antithesis of Marxism.
