Skip to comments.The Left's 'Media Reform' Astroturf Keeps its Eye on Telecom
Posted on 09/19/2011 7:29:28 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
In recent weeks, I have been interested in Google and in the telecommunications companies. Its not the typical institutional left topic on which I usually tend to focus. At least, not on the surface. The truth is, these industries ARE about the institutional left. And if the Obama administration and the media reformists on the left get their way, the institutional left will achieve some very significant goals over the next few years in their push to see all media publicly owned. That is, unless we all start paying more attention.
Before I give you the big picture, let me start with a recent example.
You may recall, I pointed readers to this relationship between Sprint and the institutional left some months ago when discussing the media reform crowds work with competitive interests in the telecom industry. While these groups pose as consumer advocates and work with Sprint to build their "media reform" coalition, Sprint actually helps to fund some of their projects, like the NoTakeOver.org website, a campaign aimed at stopping the AT&T/T-Mobile merger.
And there are groups that have a little more of a business interest, like CREDO Mobile, the progressive phone company and subsidiary of Working Assets co-founded by Tides Foundation founder Drummond Pike and fellow Democracy Alliance member Michael Kieschnick. CREDO is a mobile virtual network operator that resells Sprint, and, often together with Color of Change, uses its platform to conduct a wide variety of political activism campaigns through text messaging. Lets not forget that CREDO, whose slogan is "fight the right wing with every call you make," has long been exploiting the Tea Party to help grease the skids for the fight against AT&T. Conveniently, their efforts also help Sprint.
Much of this also lines up nicely for the lefts New Public Media: A Plan for Action that I wrote about last year, referring to the report published by Free Press and embraced by its funding foundations, like George Soros Open Society Institute. All this is not to say that its necessarily wrong in every case for such synergies to exist. But its time to force the institutional left to stop pretending as though they arent acting as corporate front groups. Which is precisely what they typically accuse those opposite them politically of doing.
The tyrannical schemes of the soros funded marxist astroturf groups and the big progressive corporations(and seven some small ones too) marches on. They wish to force their version of ‘media reform’ upon us, and silence us with net neutrality.
Don’t hit the reply button.(some of you) And don’t act like you weren’t warned that your freedom is just about up. These leftist corporations working to advance the leftists causes can even be proven in pictures.(see the next two pictures)
In the Brave New World it is all about total control of all information. They control the ideas allowed in the public square, they control all perceptions. (Just like Goebbels).
It is how the communists destroyed Senator McCarthy. Lies in newspapers turned the public against this WWII hero—tailgunner Joe. Did he have some issues-—yes, but he was dead right about the communist infiltration of government which was extensive and affected Tito, Yalta and Mao and ended up resulting in the killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children.
Freedom of information and debate is vital for a free nation.
You really can’t stick to an issue, can you? By the year’s end you’ll have a dozen different issues labeled as “net neutrality.”
Seriously, time for a couple more layers of tin foil.
-——————In the Brave New World it is all about total control of all information.-———————and thand the same money that’s funding it all.e same money that’s funding it all.
That’s how tyrants shore up their power, is by making sure that the people know only what he wants them to know.
But that’s a very tricky thing to accomplish in a society such as ours, which has been free for so long. Which is why they’re doing all of these things which don’t seem to be related. But that’s where the biggest deceit of all takes place.
These are all the same groups, the same progressive corporations, and the same agenda at the governmental level.
All these issues are as related as the money that funds them.
These are revolutionaries. There are no coincedences. And as other things I’ve posted show, they start their schemes many years in advance.
Follow the money. Follow the influence. It’s all related.
