  • I’m Not Sure Whether to Laugh or Puke

    I was reading an issue of Reason Magazine that I have left over from an old YAL activism kit, and I came across this disturbing little gem. The article links to a page on the University of Nebraska’s website where they have catalogued government propaganda in the form of comic books. Brian Doherty says in the Reason article,  There …

  • The Implications of Federal Education

    The U.S. Department of Education was established on May 4, 1980 with its primary objective being to “[assure] access to equal educational opportunity for every individual,” as well as to improve educational quality across America. One of the largest arguments for the creation of a federal department, however, was to coordinate the federal loan programs …

  • Is this really the best they can do?

    I suppose the military hegemony of the US government makes the Roman Empire a natural ideal for it, but this propaganda cartoon’s blatant promotion of an “obediance-at-all costs,” attitude still makes it ridiculous and ineffective. Particularly bizarre is the  fact that this Census Bureau ad is ostensibly intended to appeal to Christians, even though the Roman state murdered Jesus Christ. (Which makes …

  • Halloween Night with the State?

    Well, not exactly, but you’ll get a heavy dosage of ObamaCare propaganda if you go to the new “Saw” film. Apparently we’re supposed to root for “Jigsaw,” the trashy series’ psycho killer, as he kidnaps and murders nonviolent people with bad social habits, as well “turning the tables” on as a health insurance agent. The latter, as the moral busybody …

  • Re: Nobel Prize for What Now?

    The original intent of The Nobel Peace prize was to award: “the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” I was, thus, absolutely stunned to see Preston report that Barack Obama has …

  • “Come, all you little children — SING to please your God-King!”

    That is, sing for the health care proposals of President Obama, the God-head of the sanctified state…. Doesn’t the fact that teachers inundate schoolchildren with this sort of propaganda, who in turn shriek it at us through the MSM, call into question the notion that this is a “free” society?  But good for Willy, who makes a plug for …

  • New War, Same Sell

    In this clip you can see Elliott Abrams on Fox describe what he feels the Iranian public would do, should America choose to attack them. Abrams has special knowledge of Iran, being involved in Iran-Contra, and under the Bush Administration he was invovled in Iranian Policy. So he “knows” what he’s talking about. This is …

  • Barack’s Brainwashed Brigades

    No, Department of Education bureaucrat- it isn’t “silly” to oppose indoctrinating kids as young as “pre-K,” with Obama’s pro-state propaganda. It’s “silly” to think that children watching the eloquent Obama speak his professionally-crafted words, especially under the assumption that he is some sort of God-like authority, couldn’t possibly be politically and/or emotionally “modified.” On another note, good …
