A U.S. President, Raised on KGB Propaganda
Pajamas Media ^ | August 14 | Oleg Atbashian

Anti-Americanism is a relatively recent phenomenon.

The elites may have always despised American passion for individual liberties, but most common people admired America for exactly that. Upon gaining independence, a number of nations — from Uruguay to Greece to Togo to Malaysia — modeled their flags after the U.S. flag. Preambles of most Latin American constitutions closely resemble that of the U.S. Constitution, and the Latin American hero Simon Bolivar himself was an admirer of the United States and a believer in libertarianism and free markets, regardless of how his name and legacy are now being twisted by Hugo Chavez.

The important fact about modern-day anti-Americanism is that it spreads almost exclusively among impressionable cultural elites who are most exposed to ideological clichés delivered through media and educational channels.

It would be absurd to presume that people of the world go to bed every night loving dictators and hating the United States. Obviously, the first conscious thing on the mind of a European, an African, or an Asian as they wake up in the morning is not how to survive another day of “America’s economic and cultural imperialism.” And since anti-Americanism is incompatible with common sense that guides our daily lives, people must be reminded of it every day to keep it alive. That is the burden that radical intellectuals have taken upon themselves, dispensing daily quotas of leftist clichés to the “unwashed masses” down below...

The left will always cause this problem, that is why it’s an ideology to be opposed not accepted as a “difference of opinion” as W mistakeny did.

He’s not the president. He only plays one on tv and stayed at holiday inn express last night.

He’s got a lot of Democratic members of Congress who are also familiar with KGB propaganda.

“Andropov’s strategy must still be working if even today Barack Obama believes in these insinuations strongly enough to apologize before the world for the perceived history of “American arrogance.”

During his recent visit to Moscow, President Obama stated:

America supports … the restoration of the democratically-elected president of Honduras, even though he has strongly opposed American policies.

But didn’t Obama himself oppose American policies just as strongly and from the same ideological perspectives? His own history suggests that saying “because he has strongly opposed American policies” would have been a more honest use of conjunctions.

From his communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis to the unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Barack Obama has always gravitated towards people holding radical leftist views akin to those of Zelaya. He eagerly promoted leftist ideology as an ACORN activist and later when he taught and developed theories that opposed the American system of individual liberties in favor of unsustainable group entitlements at the expense of producers — theories that advocated placing the people under the controlling “care” of the state.”

Obama is a communist dictator. Nuff said.

Appears Montanans do not have as much spunk as I thought they would.

To me an early 1960s cartoon represented the 1960s New Left attitude vis-à-vis the Soviet Union and us. The American left took the Soviet money but preferred a more radical form of Marxism.

Imagine a well drawn cartoon showing a shapely young woman lying in bed on her side, her back to the viewer and draped with a sheet. Two males are seen standing next to the bed. Both are shown from the shoulders down. Both are in their undershirts and shorts.

One is obviously Uncle Sam and the other represents the U.S.S.R.

Superimposed on the young woman's hips is an image of Earth. (Nice fit, I might add.)

One of the men is speaking to the other, "OK. Me then it's your turn again."

“As far as I’m concerned, the KGB gave birth to the antiwar movement in America,” Pacepa continues. “KGB chairman Yuri Andropov managed our anti-Vietnam War operation. He often bragged about having damaged the U.S. foreign-policy consensus, poisoned domestic debate in the U.S., and built a credibility gap between America and European public opinion through our disinformation operations. Vietnam was, he once told me, ‘our most significant success.’”

At the same time the U.S.S.R. was no longer an ideal communist "paradise" to the American left. Something much more extreme was desired. Thus [Obama's] communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis [and] the unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers [held much more] radical leftist views [than the establishment U.S.S.R., of course the Soviet money was always welcome].

Khrushchev's 1956 revelations about Stalin had a major impact in the U.S. CP/USA lost members as disillusioned Americans left the party. Some say that the young communists disillusion led to the New Left of the 1960s. The U.S.S.R. was no longer an ideal.

I am wont to call the New Left and its aftermath, 1960s Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble and their ideological issue (children)-cum-Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party).

(That ain't name calling. The Sixties Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble really have taken over the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party. Under the hail of "neo-con" taunts many Democrats fled the Party.)

When the shift was taking place, didn't one of the Democrat candidates famously remark "who are all these people" when a campaign rally turned ugly? The "New Deal" generation were being handed their walking papers.

Why would you think they would have spunk when they keep electing the RAT Baucus to the Senate in large numbers? ZERO wouldn’t pick a state with spunk like Oklahoma.

Obama, who never had a father, sat as the adoring son at the feet of numerous anti-American. surrogate fathers whom he has never stopped tying to please. He will never change, because he never grew up.

I don’t know what it is but over the years in all of our moves, the people I have met with ties back to Montana haven’t been passionate about much of anything. Go along to get along and don’t rock the boat is what I have witnessed.

You might be right about Canada — don’t have a clue other than that.
