Skip to comments.Do not be taken in by the "Born again American," effort...it's a ruse and false flag

The "Born Again American" campaign, despite a really nice song...and most of the words to it...is a ruse and a false flag operation.
I was emailed their site by a conservative friend who had received it from someone else. I watched the video of the song. A really nice tune, and most of the lyrics...but I was taken back by one phrase in the chorus.
Instead of saying "My Country tis of Thee," they used the term, "My Country tios of Me." This bothered me and caused me to go through the site in more detail before singing the "Plkedge".
I am glad I did.
One of the links on the site, under the "Take the Next Step" section which I wnt to out of order (so note, they do not ask you to do that until after you would have signed their pledge and donated money), is to a place to "Learn more about your Freedoms."
This links takes you to one of the major sponsors and partners of the effort, an organization called, "People for the American Way,".
People of the American Way is a leftist site that is upset over Prop 8 in California, which I supported, is excited about Obama's nomination of Sotomayor, which I oppose, and it dedicated to "fighting and exposing" the right...people with traditional values like me.
So, take note and warning and educate your friends who may be taken in by this effort. It is attempting to gather donations and active support from the very people who would be opposed to its underlying initiatives.
As a result, I have let my friend and other know that I cannot and will not sign on to a delcaration since I view it as a false flag operation funded by people who hold views and promote initiatives that I am diamterically opposed to, who are gathering money from people who (many of them at least) would not be supportinve of their initiatives but are being sucked in by a really neat media campaign, and which effort represent not a return to traditional American vlaues, but a departure from them.
“The most effective way of making people accept the validity of the values they are to serve is to persuade them that they are really the same as those which they...have always held, but which were not properly understood or recognized before.
And the most efficient technique to this end is to use the old words but change their meaning.
Few traits of totalitarian regimes are at the same time so confusing to the superficial observer and yet so characteristic of the whole intellectual climate as the complete perversion of language, the change of meaning of the words by which the ideals of the new regimes are expressed.” —
Thanks for the heads-up, Jeff.

People (showbiz mostly) who have more money than character support PAW. It was initially bankrolled by Norman Lear I think.
bump to the top
Thanks for the heads up!!!
I haven’t heard of it before but will be on the alert!
Good post, and I had not heard that P4AW had reared their ugly heads again. last I heard they had blown their efforts on AlGore’s near election...
Rahm Emanuel. Remember his pseudo-"moderate" Donkey candidates that he ran at vulnerable Republicans?
It's Norman Lear (PAW) again, and one of the sponsoring orgs is none other than the NAACP. Moreover, their triumphalist description of their activity driving young people to the polls using Cricket Wireless texting, leaves no doubt that they were a big piece of the Obama Campaign's youth-outreach effort that got buzz for its use of youth-oriented technologies ("the medium is the message" and all that).
Dude, typos make you look bad.
“Liberal F-A-L-S-E Flag”....
I, unfortunately, got suckered in. Didn’t “think before leaping”, as it were. Something made me investigate it. Norman Lear’s involvement was enough to show who this really is. I’ve been trying to tell others too. Interestingly, CBS Sunday Morning did a piece on Lear in which he spoke about Born Again.
Spread the word. The Lefties are playing us. Remember how they finally displayed flags after it was repeatedly pointed out that they usually didn’t. There was a lady from a group interested in supporting vets that identified the group as “Progressives For Vets”. Nuff for me to go in the other direction. That and she likes Senator Barbara Boxer. YIKES!
“”People for the American Way,”.”
NO! NO! NO!
Wow. Thanks for the warning.
The 0bama administration and the leftists organizations supporting him and his efforts are insidious and will get hundreds of thousands of otherwise good Americans to lend their money and time to efforts that they would normally oppose.
The linked MS Word document runs just under 30 pages, but I think it'll give you a whole lot to "feed" people who get all gushy about "social justice".
