Glenn Beck 'Horrified' by 'America's Latest Propaganda Machine'
The Blaze ^ | 10/17/13 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 10/17/2013 6:29:17 PM PDT by Nachum

Glenn Beck on Thursday broached a topic that he said “horrified” him when it was brought to his attention roughly two weeks ago, describing it as an “effort to re-write our history and catalyze a new culture for America” with the help of “America’s latest propaganda machine.”

Beck proceeded to tell his viewers about two groups, the first called “Imagining America” and the second called “The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture.”

The latter isn’t actually a body of the United States government, but in the group’s own words, “the nation’s newest people-powered department, founded on the truth that art and culture are our most powerful and under-tapped resources for social change.”

Beck is always horrified. It’s how he makes his living.

And crying helps, too.

“The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture.”

People who think art isn't important need to ask themselves why communists see it as one of their primary targets. Art is part of our cultural fabric and manipulating that fabric manipulates our culture.

Megyn Kelly just had Dershowitz on saying he thinks it was unconstitutional that Cruz threatened to shut the govt. down. Cruz never threatened to do that. Obama did. Check this out (Mark Levin responds at the bottom of the article):

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

You can do an experiment and try following TV-series. If you watch them with a little analysis, the social engineering isn’t hard to pick up. And they’re carriers of ads that are even more blatant social engineering.

...so you’re not horrified? I am. Beck helps to keep me on track. Don’t ever lose track of how horrifying everything the POSOTUS is attempting to make everything. If we do, we lower our bar.

Actually its a lot worse.

If you have any interest in art of any kind you’ll see that there is a rabid hatred of conservatism that has nothing to do with art. They’ve taken art and turned it into a purely political vehicle for themselves.

Its the same thing they’ve done with science and its incredibly destructive. Imagine if Jonas Sauk were trying to promote his polio vaccine today and made the mistake of expressing a pro life sentiment. The left would destroy him and throw his vaccine in the trash.

No doubt. And the stuff is accelerating so it looks ludicrous if you’re aware of it, but people seem not to notice at all.

Did you notice that 0bunghole used his bully pulpit to discredit anyone on the internet who disagrees with or opposes him? One more step towards his fascist tyranny over America.

This publicly funded "art" hung in a publicly funded art museum in Northern Michigan a year or so back. Its very basic beginning photoshop at best that I could replicate in 20 minutes.

The museum claimed it was non political.

I’m an artist, though I’m ashamed to admit it.

The ‘art world’ is an insular, closed world of bitter schnooks who let themselves be dominated by a core of BS peddlers and politicians.

Artsy types always vote liberal, (though there have been exceptions) believing that the leftists support the arts.
They’ve never seen any evidence of this, art suffers under democratic majority rule. How many classical concerts have you seen Obama attend since seizing power? They hate culture and art.

Liberals are the ultimate Philistines; they see no use for art other than propaganda.

Crazy people. Posters found on Democrat sites are generally no different from those on Stormfront and hundreds of other fascist sites, and the libs are getting very, very deep in the really dangerous stuff. And they’ve been building it for years and years.

Absolutely!

Whether it’s sitcoms, dramas or ads, the white guy is either a dork, a loser, a bad guy, or an inept fool, while the black guy or the woman is the smartest person in the room - reality be damned!

And it’s subtle enough that it enters and remains in the zombies’ consciousness without their slightest awareness.

When it comes to propaganda, conservatives are babes in the woods.

As a teenager, I didn’t understand the communist infiltration of the art world, but I knew crap when I saw it. I’m gad that I skipped art school, and I’ ve had a successful art career.

From an early age, I’ve told my kids, “that’s crap, and never let anyone tell you anything else.”

There was a “study” done not too long ago that said youngsters enjoyed their PARENT’S music more than the music of their own time-—no wonder!

I have a nephew that LOVED the music my sister played when he was a teenager.

Kids today (and in the recent past) have had crappola to listen to.

Stunning. I love it. Dreamlike.

I’m an unemployed illustrator. I draw the traditional way—pencil to paper.

I liked early Picasso...hated the later Picasso.

Later Picasso always seemed a scam to me.

There are no art shows for me to exhibit in.

Around here they celebrate discrimination with awards exclusively for chicanos, homosexuals, african-americans, womyn, those under 25, muslim, etc etc.

White heterosexual male adults need not apply.

People that see my work like it. But I don’t belong to the right social class.
