Sesame Street "pumping out left wing messages"
The UK Telegraph ^ | May 29, 2011 | Nick Allen

Posted on 05/29/2011 10:06:23 AM PDT by UltraConservative

Conservative columnist and author Ben Shapiro accused television executives and writers of pushing a liberal agenda in several high profile American television entertainment shows.

His book will show how the "most powerful medium of mass communication in human history became a vehicle for spreading the radical agenda of the left side of the political spectrum," according to the publishers HarperCollins.

Shapiro interviewed dozens of leading industry figures, some of whom admitted to including a left wing bias in their shows. The results showed "unrepentant abuses of the Hollywood entertainment industry" and how movers and shakers in the television world tried to "shape America in their own leftist image".

the worst example i saw, was the shrill scare tactics, about the AGW global warming hoax.

i watch a lot of science channel, discovery, etc., and long ago, i noticed that the last 2 minutes of an otherwise good show, would somehow tie the preceding 58 minutes to how we must do something about AGW or we are doomed...

How about the interviews post-9/11 with the Illinois politician that we just “had to understand Islam more.”

The politician was Barack Obama.

A couple of years ago our local PBS station had a wonderful
program about a search for the descendents of some black
soldiers in an old photo. At the end they thanked a vets
group for their help. They them went on to talk about the
wonderful vet group that John Kerry had formed to help
promote world peace and how rich Republicans had slandered
him and ruined his chance to serve our country. I nearly
threw up.

good point. and i wanted to be fair and open-minded, so i did just that. i learned ALL about Islam. and not from “anti” sites. I read the Quran. the Sira. ahadith. and i literally learned “straight from the Imam’s mouth”.

once i was “inside”, they admitted all the things that CAIR spokesman on the MSM (and FOX!!!) lie about.
(including that Aisha WAS 9 (not “14”), when Muhammad had sex with her at age 53. ...and that if a person leaves Islam, the penalty is death. if a person is gay, the penalty IS death. if a muslima marries a kuffir, she is kicked out of Islam and her family, and as an apostate, the penalty is... you guessed it... death. )

i was at a regional “Dawa” meeting, where they discuss how best to “use” church interfaith events, to best spread Islam. and i learned much more. it was... educational...

I also have noticed this and it is as you say, most of the program will be perfectly fine but then in the last few minutes they introduce the “message”. This all has been coordinated by the United Nations with their many left wing ngos which are sponsored by the taxpayers or by tax exempt foundations which pass off their taxation responsiblity on to us the tax payers. Foundations and ngos control about 5 billion dollars that are not taxed but instead go to these laboratories of every kind of left wing movement of the past forty years. Everything has been planned and then dropped on the public as propaganda campaigns. Feminism, “anti-war”, environmentalism, anti-guns, homosexuality, sex education, abortion, unisex, anti-God, trashing the Founding Fathers, multi-culturalism, race baiting and affirmative action have all been foisted upon us by the same well planned and well financed leftists groups. The foundations and the liberals in congress fund the grant money that feed this left wing monster. Destroying the western world in a full time, well paid job for thousands of academics.

“In other news, dog bites man.”

Amen to that.

Any organization whether informational, educational,
or cause-driven is a target for the left. And when
they gain control they tend to try to hide behind
a neutral facade.

This has been going on for 30 years and it's always been worst on PBS! I guess the "good news" is that a few conservatives are finally beginning to figure it out. Will Congress do anything? No. Liberals will run circles around the tongue-tied Pubs, dishing their usual scare tactics and demagoguery.

exactly. AGW is a fraud on the face of it. it is intuitively obvious to observers like you.

...but it’s really much worse than even that.
the official temperature records have been proved to be “doctored” to show warming that doesn’t exist.
(the leaked emails from Hadley CRU, admit they were trying to “hide the decline”. The world has gotten colder since 2003, not warmer. Yet the Obama administration still continues the lie.

http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/hiding-the-decline-in-washington-dc/

http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/01/climategate_cru_was_but_the_ti.html

Overall, U.S. online stations have dropped from a peak of 1,850 in 1963 to a low of 136 as of 2007. In his blog, Smith wittily observed that “the Thermometer Langoliers have eaten 9/10 of the thermometers in the USA[,] including all the cold ones in California.” ... this “selection bias” creates a +0.6°C warming in U.S. temperature history.

easy. i was officially one of them.
one of the specific points in that particular tristate Dawa meeting, was to focus on interfaith events at immigrant churchs. (specifically they talked about Korean Christian churchs.)
once i was, they admitted everything. ALL the CAIR spokesmen on MSN lie. (and my masjid and Imam were considered textbook moderate, officially.)
i was a door greeter, at a big event where Evonne Ridley spoke. a LOT of men came in, with multiple women about the same age. ...and i was offered one (or more...) submissive well-educated wife. ...Islam has a LOT to offer certain people... and they use it very effectively.
( and since by definition,, taquiya allows them to lie to kuffirs, it is IMPOSSIBLE to learn the truth, except to be inside. ) ...again, it was a very very educational experience...

Now I am wondering about the purpose of infterfaith meetings? I wonder if these interfaith meetings are just another way for the left to create mischief. Now our muzzie friends are jumping on the leftists’ bandwagon.

0) initially, on this thread, i was talking about AGW.
a hoax that is costly our country BILLIONS, because of Obama’s insane “green” policies.

i only said something about Islam, because mindbender
mentioned ““had to understand Islam more.””, so i responded to it, since i DO have some UNIQUE knowledge in that area to share.

1) Occam’s Razor... a more logical belief, would be that YOU are secretly a Muslim, and wish to discredit me, for trying to tell the truth about Islam. that it is a creation of Satan himself, and should be BANNED in the USA because it is BY DEFINITION seditious !

2) i have been reading on FR for many years. i have seen people accused of being trolls, for defending Obama.
...but i have NEVER seen someone accused of being a liar, for telling the TRUTH about Islam.
Do most spies reveal secrets about their OWN side? do you know ANYTHING about Islam?!?
3) when i spoke of my experience, i was answering the question, of cradleoffreedom, not you.
4) So, i WAS a spy. but for US. if you choose to ignore my very real experience, you can go infiltrate your OWN local masjid.

...IF you have the courage, and knowledge.

I still have emails i saved from the Imam and his assistant. i was honestly amazed at how quickly they believed me. they were ready to send me to Mecca, and they offered me a full time job in their “model” moderate community.

4) i fail to see what 2010 has to do with anything. there are lots of trolls with old ID’s. (and, i was reading here, for years before i signed up.) And i wager not ALL the people who signed up in 2010 were trolls or spies.

5) i’m also honorably retired military.
if you wish to doubt that also, PM me, and i can arrange to prove that to you also. But if you look at some of my other posts, like in this thread:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2727143/posts?page=22
i think it is obvious.
unless you think i’m an incredibly brilliant “spy”, who writes clumsily, and speaks bluntly on many many different subjects here.

6) it was a very painful and stressful time of my life. i didn’t do it for entertainment.

...i did it to save the life and soul of a BLIND girl, who said she loved me and wanted to marry me.

but she was terrified she would be a victim of an honor killing. (like that Harry Potter actress almost was, if she hadn’t climbed out the window).

a lady who i SECRETLY took with me to Christian church, and heard her say she was impressed with a God who loved EVERYONE. (and that she would convert after we got married.).

...a girl who i saw LITERALLY shake in fear of being seen with me and my child in a chuckie cheese. A woman i loved, with all my heart, who said goodbye to me with these exact words for a reason:
“Now they are watching me more closely than ever.”

can YOU imagine, how i felt? i think about that, EVERY DAY.

...but a result is, i learned a LOT of things, that most Americans don’t. so, i thought that at least MY pain, could result in the positive of inside information to share, so we can fight Islam and sharia better.

i KNOW CAIR is lying, and i can show specifically how.
if you wish to believe them instead, BY ALL MEANS DO.

...thank you very much Sir, for making me feel welcome on FR, especially when i bared my soul, because i thought it might actually HELP inform some people.

Abraham had two sons. One was Ishmaal and the other was Isaac. Ishamaal was the son of choice. Isaac was the son of promise. Isaac begat Jacob, later called Israel by The LORD.

The God of Abraham is the God of Isaac of Jacob (Israel)

Allah is a pagan moon god; he is likely Ba’al.

Call him what you will, but allah (pig piss be upon him) is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
