Skip to comments.Do not be taken in by the "Born again American," effort...it's a ruse and false flag
Posted on 06/13/2009 1:39:02 PM PDT by Jeff Head
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 Obama administration and the leftists organizations supporting him and his efforts are insidious and will get hundreds of thousands of otherwise good Americvans to lend their money and time to efforts that they would normally oppose.
Totally agree. I had to set some others straight.
These people are insidious and attempting to use the Bible and BOR for efforts aimed squarely at trying to destroy both.
This has Obama written all over it.
Thanks for the heads up, Jeff. Sadly, we must expect more and more false-flag ops by the PAW/Move On/ACORN/Soros gang.
George Lakoff (rhymes with).
Haven’t come across this yet, but thankful for the heads up. Now is indeed the time to be wary of deception.
I believe several have already occurred...some of them black and wet.
There has been a major movement on the left to attract the Christian vote.. I have a rabid lefty friend who is always sending me these videos, that, at first, sound like a nice Christian message but slowly morph into a message of how Christian’s only choice is to support the left (not in those words).. they use a lot of psychological manipulation and I’ve seen too many fall for it. One of these days I’ll gather them up and post..
There is a political war going on, and the left is fighting hard for the Christian vote.
Its like the Soros infiltration of the GOP. Nothing is beneath these bottom feeders.
The logo is another give away too.
The left is getting the luke warm Christians.....no doubt about that.
Its funded by normal people who fall for their false flag
Getting Conservatives to donate money to causes that they adamantly oppose?
A special kind of sicko thought up this scheme.
Thanks for getting this out there. Rush, Glenn Beck et al need to have this forwarded to them ASAP!!
Frank, this needs to be reposted at the Cave
Born again Americans.
Now there’s a situation where ABORTION makes sense.
Thanks for the heads-up!
I got a goofy video email from a conservative friend. It was some nonsense about how a bald eagle lives 40 years and can live 30 more years if it goes up on some mountain, pulls its crooked bill out and then grows a new bill. It ended with some dumbass “change” is good message. This might have been interesting and patriotic to some but to me, it seemed like some goofy propaganda effort. There is some weird Commie crap going around the net posing as being pro-American.
PLease forward it to everyone you kn ow...I will have a site up soon...working on it now. In the mean time, forward the link to this thread.
I’ve seen hard core Christians also fall over.. they have been sold the line that the Right is cruel, violent, and anti-Christian.
Doom on em , not a dollar and I will send out the alert on my email list Jeff .........thx 4 the warning
Stay safe !!
The left does this all the time.
Born Again American would’ve turned me off to start with... WTH does that mean?
Thank you Jeff. The Left is always scamming the public.
Wow, extremely deceptive site.
You would hope that a Christian would have the discernment to see through it - being that they don’t mention God, Jesus Christ, prayer, repentance - anything of substance.
You are right - this is pure deception designed to lure in unaware people. Someone should get the news out to Hannity, Rush, the larger Christian ministries to warn people.
Anybody have those contacts?
The fact that it’s so deceptivly constructed could turn it into a hot new item.
In their video they do mention that they are Born Again Americans, that their Bible and the Bill of Rights is at their side.
Thanks Jeff. I’ve always believed charity begins at home. With very few exceptions I prefer to see tangible evidence when donating to charity.
Amen to that!
Spot on with that. They are using the BBible and Bill of Rights in their video to try and get support for efforts that try to destroy them.
This admin is starting to scare me and the First lady. We are now constantly cleaning weapons, rotating stores, range time, etc. and it is annoying. I'm too old to be back in BCT. Methinks we are not going to have the luxury of being lazy and enjoy retirement anymore.
I pray I don't live to see CWII.
yeah, we have some “social justice” Catholics that bought in years ago......from all outward appearances they are good solid Christians......but, usually, when it comes to abortion they invariably waiver.....that is when they lose me.
Never heard of these guys, their song, or this group — but thanks for the head’s up. I’m sure I’ll run across it/them before too long (so thanks for the warning).
Thanks for the heads up. I’m forwarding to several friends who believe every “christian” email they get.
Don't know about you, but I'm completely disgusted at their "born again" bullshit. Wonder how many evangelical's are going to fall for their ruse....
This looks like Obama and his cohorts are trying to infiltrate the Protestant pro-life denominations, just as they are trying to infiltrate the Catholic Church.
Do a search fo “Obama’s Catholic Plan” — excellent video by Mike Voris. BTW, is there a Mike Voris ping list?
Liberals are such liars. Thanks for posting this - we need to warn as many people as possible.
Thanks Jeff. With your permission I’ll repackage this into an email & send it around. I want NOTHING to do with “People for the American Way” (of Socialism)!
Exactly. More evil from the left. Use peoples' own words against them.
Thanks for the ping Jeff.
General ping: Beware
