Hezbollah as "Rock Stars"? THIS is CNN.

I should've known that something interesting was coming on CNN when I saw that the violent-nihilistic movie, "V for Vendetta" was advertising itself earlier today on "CNN Sunday Night." You might remember that film; audiences were supposed to cheer terrorists as they blow up Big Ben in London. Happily, audiences shunned the film--Hollywood seems to have overestmated the public appetite for terror-philic films.

And that was just the commercial.

Host Carol Lin didn't let me down, either--even as she ran down the USA....

Why turn it on anymore, honestly? CNN is garbage, and it's not worth wasting time on.

I was just watching Fox & Friends. They had a guest from the Lebanese media. I expected mostly "it's the JOOOOOS fault". The man was surprisingly fair and balanced. He said that the Hezzies are gaining support in the Shiite community - where the Hezzies provide social services. In the majority of Lebanon they are not admired or liked. In fact most Lebanese blame them for bringing on this war.

The interview was very interesting because I keep hearing the media telling me that the Hezbo's support is gaining.

I watch it for a few minutes now and then for a laugh. When I get tired of shaking my head, i change the channel.

V for Vendetta was written in the era of British Thatcher bashing.

It is a socialist wet dream to see the bomb throwing anarchists take to the streets of the US as they do when they riot in other countries.

I was watching cnn at the Y while riding a stationary bike the other day.(It's the only news channel available)..They were reporting on the war in the Middle East.
In the half hour that I spent on the bike, there was no mention of the devastation in Israel,only the damage that took place in Lebanon.

Hezbos may provide social services but drug lords hand out cash in South America and the Nazis were socialists and "aided" their people too.

In the interest of PR and buying off the masses, they may do "good" things but it does not negate the bad nor justify their existence.

Unfortunately, where I work CNN is on the boob tube 24-7 in the cateteria. Some people are absolutely glued to that monitor.

V for Vendetta was written in the era of British Thatcher bashing.

Even the creator of V for Vendetta wanted nothing to do with the movie version. It takes major chutzpah for the left to hijack the notion that "People should not fear government. Government should fear people."

Any conservative who uttered such sentiments was labelled a nutbar by liberals during the Clinton years. But now they create a fantasyland where the Koran is a work of art and Christianity is a path to repression, when all world history shows otherwise.

In other words, boilerplate liberal twisting of concepts and facts to where they become unrecognizable.

To the left, "Up is Down; Freedom is Slavery" and you know the rest. What was "reality" yesterday (or in the 90s) is fantasy now to the left. I'm actually waiting for them to start with the "black helicopter" sightings and other conspiracy theories. They do not even change the conspiracy when they hijack it. And yes, when the left was in power, anyone who spoke as the left does now was "investigated" and audited, and trailed until something was either "discovered" about them, or they were entrapped by an illegal sting. I have yet to see any of this from the Bush Administration and we have congressmen going to Syria and giving them our deployment plans!!! We also have "anti-war" rallies celebrating the deaths of our soldiers!!! More of the left's "do as I say, not as I do you little serf" Bovine Secretions.

Orwell wrote "Animal Farm" (how socialists get power) and "1984" (how socialists keep power) as a warning about communism and it's identical twin, fascism. Yet leftists keep misquoting the books and transposing it to the right. I thought "V" was going to be a refreshing change for Hollywierd, but I was wrong. I read the reviews, and saw the previews and realized the movie was just one more "Bush is Hitler" piece of pathetic filth.

Oddly, the people who say "Bush is Hitler" also carry signs saying kill the Jews and "Death to Zionism". If one were to make ANSWER/Move-On/Code-pink rally photos black and white, they would look no different from Germany, or the American Bund rallies in the 1930s.

I would postulate that President Bush is actually represented in "Animal Farm". He is "snowball", the almost mythical pig that the socialist master pigs used as a scapegoat for everything. Just like the socialists do now with the President. Of course I'll go re-read the book and probably find many more parallels on how the socialist pigs (visions of Dean, Kerry, and Clinton with snouts and curly tails come to mind) feed lies to the Sheep (MSM, DU, ANSWER) and the little mind-numbed, robots just keep baying away.

Orwell may actually have been the source for the "if you are not with us, you are against us" quote by the President. Orwell's actual quote is: "Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me."
