Who has had the worst effect on America Culture?

Posted on 01/04/2014 8:08:58 AM PST by MNDude

What three people do you think have had the worst influence on American culture? I don't mean by public figures who successfully passed legislation that hurt our country, but those who's public lives dragged our culture down by normalizing or advocating a negative behavior.

1. Liberals

Al-Qaeda only wishes they could do the damage liberals have done to this country.

I’d say the damage was already done by the 1960s. Plenty of red diaper doper babies. Bomb throwing radicals in the streets. Today they occupy high positions in academia and public office.

Oprah, “Lady GaGa” and Bill Clinton.

These three culture movers made Obama, Pelosi and Reid possible.

Pelosi is the absolute worst out of all those 3. She's a hardcore drug addict, she constantly displays all the signs of cocaine and methamphetamine abuse - and also a woman with severe mental problems so therefore the absolute LAST thing you want her in, is in a position of power especially in politics! But incredibly she is! Nobody pushed Obamacare more than that effin' psychopath "You have to pass it to see what's in it" Who the hell says that other than someone with mental issues?

Timothy Leary....

That's a quick answer, not totally thought out. I do think it's the narcisstic, drug-addled culture that created the environment where everything is embraced and excused and there are no consequences for bad behavior.

Good question.

Without too much thought, previous NY Times publisher Arthur Sulzburger, Sr., and Hollywood lights like trash-purveyor Aaron Spelling have had far more degrading influence on American culture than any politician or philosopher.

Sorry - finger slipped and cut off my post prematurely:

Obama. No one else even comes close.

As the epitome of narcissism, lies, and manipulation to acquire political power, Obama has legitimatized all the worst behaviors that were previously seen in pop culture. But Obamas thuggish tactics, continuous propaganda, flat-out lies, and elevation of himself to the status of royalty has sent the message that HE is what America stands for.

How much time do you have? The list is long and not distinguished.

I think our fate was sealed on January 22, 1973. As it is now, repealing Roe v Wade would be a good and necessary first step to a long-term national survival plan:

but alas for him who did not fear Me! alas for him who never saw wickedness as folly and foolishness as madness! alas for the heart who believed that he could reach the zenith of his strength by his own efforts and without Me! alas for him who has not obeyed My Commandments! alas for him whose heart is filled with malice! alas for the jackal that plotted by night! alas for him who judged his brother and caused him to live in terror! alas for the lips that bore false-witness! alas for those who shed innocent blood of unborn infants! your compensation shall be hell!
