Isn’t “People for the American Way” a George Soros organization ..??

That should tell people all they need to know.

So they’re taking their product, packaging it into something that looks patriotic and Christian: a bait and switch scheme, wolf in sheeps clothing, a devil in disguise...using deception—sort of like scam artists, phishing and identify theft-hiding their agenda because their normal way is failing. Got it.

Just more astroturf from Axelrod. The site is too slick, too “diverse”- and that obama sign in the picture kind of gives it away. These clowns have been doing this for a long time; the ‘National Association of Senior Citizens’, etc. They assume people are suckers, then they turn that assumption into votes by doing just this. It works amazingly well with college kids.

Phooey! I should have addressed it to “All”.

I do know that most of the left-wing groups are at least funded by Soros if not directly organized by him.

I don’t know who we could verify the info with - but if you find out, please send an “ALL” msg so the rest of the thread will have the info.

Thanks.

Born Again American? The title alone makes me run for cover.

The only ones who can be born again are those who are born in Christ.

Someone sent this to me a while back. I liked it for the first few seconds. Then I heard my creed’s equality and my ears pricked up.

Then along came this bit of excrement:

My brother’s welding chassis at the plant
He’s earning what our granddad did in 1948
While CEOs count bonuses behind the castle gates
How can they see When all they care about’s the do re mi

It’s getting where there’s nowhere left to turn
Not since the crash of twenty-nine have things been so unfair
So many of our citizens are living in despair


I didn’t realize that Karl Marx was one of our Founding Fathers.

Beware: BornAgainAmerican.org Is A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Beware: BornAgainAmerican.org Is A Wolf in Sheep's ClothingPosted by GITRDONE on February 8, 2009 at 9:09pm View GITRDONE's blog .The Great American Con Job

By Giovanni’s World http://giovanniworld.wordpress.com/2009/01/31/the-great-american-co...

Two days ago I posted about what I thought was a rather dangerous organization known as BornAgainAmerican.org. As of today, I think it’s even more dangerous than I originally thought. Here’s why… I know a lot more about this organization and the reason it was created… So sit back, relax, and watch while I pull this apart with my bare teeth.

When I first wrote about BornAgainAmerican.org two days ago, I was under the impression that this was just another radical left-wing anti-American organization. The difference, I felt, was that this organization had lots of money, clout and marketing brains behind it. Well, I was partially right. The money is definitely there, and the clout is there, it’s the marketing genius where I went wrong. Because the method used to attract people to their organization is so powerful, I assumed that they had some real brainiacs behind this whole born-again-american thingy. Turns out, it was just a lucky fluke of fate. For us Conservative Americans, an un-lucky fluke! That’s my way of saying… we have our work cut out for us. Please keep reading, I’m just getting started.

Ok, let’s start with the cast of characters. In no particular order, but starting with the Founder of the site,



This list of names will become valuable shortly. Let’s continue…

If you go to the Born Again American site, a video loads almost immediately so you have to make sure your speakers are on prior to going to the site. As you listen, you will find yourself getting sucked in by the very easy down-home folksy sound to the song. In other words, you will like it. Then you read the words along with the rolling script that appears on the left and you find yourself nodding in agreement with a few of the lines. You also start to feel the intended patriotic feel as the song and the video mixing that takes place. The next thing that you notice is the not-so-soft under-tones of religiosity also in that mix. The end result of all this is…. you feel really good about the song and you are convinced that it’s your patriotic duty to join this organization because these just have to be such good upstanding American-Christian loving people… right?

Ha! Not so fast pilgrim, time for a reality check.

Ok, I’m going to give these folks some credit here, and well deserved credit at that. The song/video made with real people (not rock stars), Patriotism, and Christianity all thrown in together makes for a powerful presentation. The video is very, very well done! And in my opinion, very effective. It’s an excellent propaganda piece!

Now, let’s look behind the curtain… Norman Lear is the founder of this organization, which for those in the know, should be enough to get you to run, not walk, away from this as fast as possible (Google “Norman Lear liberal activist”.) Although Mr. Lear has no problem using a two Preachers, a Muslim, a Cantor, and two different Church Choirs to help participate and promote his Organization, he has some funny ideas about religion in America.

If you go to http://www.bornagainamerican.org/about.html and then click on the video titled “Norman Lear’s Preamble at the Lincoln Memorial”. It’s less than 2 minutes long so take the time now and check it out. In it you will hear him say things like “one day I heard a preacher on TV say that a Supreme Court Justice should be taken off the bench” and he knew he had not joined the Air Force to protect that type of freedom. And he also had problems with a preacher that according to him said that you could not be a good Christian if you voted a particular political affiliation (not exact words, but close enough). According to him, this is why in 1980 he started the “People For The American Way” a very left leaning org. More on these and other Orgs later.

One of the first performers on this video is Keith Carradine, a sometimes actor and songwriter, and full time liberal. Mr. Carradine also seems to be a bit confused about the connection with religion in this video and what he thinks of the Constitution. Here’s a few words from Mr. Carradine from the ‘About Us’ page… “Why I am a Born Again American: When Norman asked me to write “Born Again American” he did so with the suggestion that the song address several timely and timeless social and political issues. He was quite specific about reinforcing what our founders envisioned when they wrote our Constitution and Bill Of Rights; (ergo ” my bible is The Bill Of Rights “). The secular ideals of Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine are what we need to remind ourselves of at this critical time in our Nation’s history.”

Mr. Carradine does a fine job of showing his lack of forethought all by himself, so I’m going to let him slide around in his own mud-hole without any more help from me. On to other issues with Born Again American. For instance… what are the odds that Lear stole the name for his Organization from ‘born-again Christians’??? Go figure!?

Oh, by the way, did you know that Norman Lear uses “"BornAgainAmerica" to help promote not only “People for the American Way“… and their blog here.

but also…

Right Wing Watch… http://www.rightwingwatch.org/ where they blame everything wrong in the world on Conservatism, Republicans, and of course… Christianity!

And last but not least…

Young People For YP4… http://www.youngpeoplefor.org/blog which is an organization to mobilize youth for all matter of activism. YP4 GLTB rights (gay,lesbian,transgendered,bi-sexual). YP4 Environment, YP4 etc, etc, etc. If there is a leftist group out there, then there is a YP4 group to help mold the minds of young people to think like good little Marxists. Just to ice the cake, all 3 of the above mentioned Organizations (Lear connected to all) were instrumental in helping Comrade Obama get elected. And that my dear friends is the kicker…

Norman Lear only started ‘BornAgainAmerican’ after Comrade Obama won the election. Why, you may ask… because he knows that over the next 4 years many more teens will be turning 18 years of age and he wants to make damn sure he has them in his pocket for 2012 so Comrade Obama can be our Comrade-in-Chief for a full 8 years. This is actually a brilliant strategy by Lear, and I suggest that someone on the Conservative side start something similar very, very, soon!

Let me very clear as I come to an end on this subject… Norman Lear is a Marxist. He uses un-ethical, and even immoral trickery by taking advantage of religion and patriotism as a front to recruit weak-minded people. While at the very same time he is neither religious nor patriotic. For the sake of our country, and for the sake of our youth, warn everyone you know about his anti-American organization.

These people really make me sick. Create a beautiful red, white and blue graphic and try to sell it as being patriotic. As soon as I saw it I knew it must have the stamp of “O” on it. How many gullible fools will fall for this? Will be emailing this far and wide.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

That is what they are trying to tie this too...trying to draw in born again Christians as if though this is for them.
