More media tricks
After thinking things over, the Denver Post decided to delete the fact that Arapahoe School shooter Kark Pierson was a committed socialist from their news report. This is from the original article:
The gunmans parents divorced in late 2011, according to court records. The divorce was finalized in August 2012.
Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.
He was exuberant I guess, Conrad said. A lot of people picked on him, but it didnt seem to bother him.
And, here is the updated article, sans socialist.
Piersons parents divorced in late 2011, according to court records. The divorce was finalized in August 2012.
Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with Pierson, described him as very opinionated.
He was exuberant, I guess, Conrad said. A lot of people picked on him, but it didnt seem to bother him.
Guess it didnt fit their narrative that only right-wing Tea Party folks were the dangerous ones.
There was a very active discussion about this news story on the CBS channel (Channel 3000) out of Madison, WI until this information came out at which time the whole story went down the memory hole. It never happened.
“v Denver Post net izvestiy, i tozhe net pravdy”
“Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.”
“Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with Pierson, described him as very opinionated.”
This is exactly what George Orwell predicted in his novel 1984. This is what America has become.
IRS plane crasher Joe Stack sums up his manifesto with this: a popular Karl Marx quote and a stab at Capitalism...
The communist creed:
From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
The capitalist creed:
From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.
-Joe Stack (1956-2010)
This makes the number of Democrat / socialist / Progressive / 0bama supporter school shooters something like 100%, doesn’t it?
"The woman accused of killing three colleagues at the University of Alabama in Huntsville [Amy Bishop] was a suspect in a 1993 attempted mail bombing, according to a report by The Boston Globe.
The report broke the day after it was learned that Bishop fatally shot her brother in Braintree in 1986. ..."
"A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children - the youngest a third-grade boy - was a far-left political extremist who was "obsessed" with President Obama to the point of being off-putting."--Boston Herald, February 15, 2010
'Oddball' portrait of Amy Bishop emerges:
Unabomber essay urges attacks on 'techno-industrial system'
July 27, 2002 | By Dan Eggen, Dominic Gates, Washington Post
In an article published this spring by Green Anarchy, a radical environmental newsletter, [unabomber Ted] Kaczynski calls on revolutionaries to "eliminate the entire techno-industrial system" by "hitting where it hurts" and disparages the activities of most radicals as "pointless." ..."
The fall 2001 issue of Green Anarchy published a letter from Kaczynski complaining that Subcomandante Marcos, leader of the Zapatista rebels in Chiapas, Mexico, was insufficiently pure as a revolutionary because he advocates bringing water and electricity to peasants....
The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (El Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional) is an anarcho communist army that is based in Mexico, mainly the poorest state in Mexico, Chiapas. In 1994, January 1st, they started their revolution and it has been increasingly successful throughout the years. Today, they are attempting non-violent struggles because the people told them too they are truly an army of the people. However, both the people and their army are realizing how unsuccessful that tactic is.
Their ideology, Zapatismo, is a mixture of indigenous teachings, autonomism, anarchism and communism. Although other revolutions are going on in the world (like the Southern African anarcho communist movement), the Zapatista revolution was deemed the first modern revolution of our time and its bringing hope to people not only in Mexico, but around the world.
As I said countless times, they are fully aware of what they are doing. They deliberately and consciously choose to lie and distort, to further their marxist agenda.
From the Wall Street Journal
NOVEMBER 24, 2007
Oswald was a dedicated communist who had defected to the Soviet Union in 1959 out of disgust with American capitalism. After becoming disillusioned with Soviet life, he returned to the U.S. in 1962. In early 1963, he bought a scoped rifle through the mail and soon used it to fire a shot (which missed) at retired general Edwin Walker, the head of the John Birch Society in Dallas. In the summer of 1963, Oswald was active in street demonstrations in support of Castro. In September 1963, he visited the Soviet and Cuban embassies in Mexico City seeking a travel visa that would allow him to travel to Cuba.
Oswald was among the radicals of the time who saw Third World revolutionaries like Castro as the wave of the communist future. He was well aware of Kennedy's efforts to overthrow Castro's regime. As a Senate investigative committee suggested in 1975, Oswald shot Kennedy to interrupt his administration's plans to assassinate Castro or to overthrow his regime in Cuba.
Ignoring Oswald's communist links, journalists and political leaders quickly claimed the president was a martyr to civil rights. Earl Warren said that Kennedy had "suffered martyrdom as a result of the hatred and bitterness that has been injected into the life of our nation by bigots." Martin Luther King said the assassination had to be viewed against the backdrop of violence against civil rights marchers in the South. James Reston wrote in the New York Times that "something in the nation itself, some strain of madness and violence, had destroyed the highest symbol of law and order."
The consensus opinion was that Kennedy was a victim of hate and bigotry, a casualty of his support for civil rights. The Cold War and Kennedy's ongoing feud with Castro were rarely mentioned as factors behind the assassination. The reasons? Mrs. Kennedy wanted her husband remembered as a modern-day Abraham Lincoln. Lyndon Johnson feared complicating relations with the Soviet Union. Liberals feared a replay of the McCarthy period, when the Wisconsin senator inflamed public opinion about fears of domestic communism.
I never, ever heard about Stack using that quote until now.
They are FIRST.
.....Yet those on the right get the blame, one would think the old MSM would “get it” by now.
Excellent work! Thank you.
I miss the somewhat less socialist Rocky Mountain News.
CNN’s Sanchez and Velshi Omit Stack’s Communist Sympathies:
If the story does not meet with the liberal progressive goals, it is not news. If the shooter (I will not use his name) were a conservative, that fact would lead and be trumpeted to the skies!
The Arizona shooter, the Newtown school shooter and the Colorado movie theater shooter were all registered Democrats, with left wing beliefs. Adam Lanza was a registered Democrat with a particular animosity toward Christians, the Arizona shooter of Gabby Giffords had attended an alternative school, known as a Small School, a type of school that was dreamed up by Bill Ayres, the Colorado movie theater shooter was studying neuroscience, which is basically a form of brain washing or group think. It is part of the social science dept, not physical science, although it can be.
I have a theory that the relativism of the post modernist thought encourages young unstable minds to become unhinged. I think that the relativism kind of pulls the rug out from under their core knowledge base, making the doubt everything that they thought they knew. For an unstable person this could be devastating.
I am sure they would have done the same, if he was a conservative. /sarcasm
The Zeitgeist Movement is basically a global Marxism one:
Concepts advocated by the Zeitgeist Movement
* Management of the Earth's Natural Resources: Once surveyed, the Earth's natural resources will no longer be privately owned. They will be managed according to general sustainability principles of preservation, recycling and optimization.
* No Money, Barter, Trade or Property: The monetary value of commodities does not represent the actual physical supply of natural resources, or their utilitarian value, which is integral to the success of the type of sustainable global society that the Zeitgeist Movement advocates. Income is a requirement for individuals to sustain life in a monetary system, so this in turn creates the need for commodities to be continuously bought and sold and for goods to be continuously produced, in order to make sure that the operation of social functions is maintained. This, combined with competition over market share, creates an abundance of goods that usually exceeds the demand for them, which in turn depletes natural resources and may create excessive waste.
Furthermore, the profit motive inherent in a monetary system, creates an incentive to increase profits regardless of the impact on human beings or the environment. When labor is displaced or outsourced, it either removes a laborer's source of sustenance, or takes advantage of inexpensive laborers. Certain manufacturers and corporations have been noted to contaminate the environment by dumping their by-products and waste materials, instead of disposing of them properly, in order to save money. Other manufacturers have been known to take advantage of a process called planned obsolescence in order to increase sales of their products over time. With universal access to goods and services provided by a sustainable means of production based on resource availability, optimization and preservation, these problems of a monetary economy can be overcome.
* Automation: Machine automation is more productive than human labor and replaces the need for people to perform repetitive and tedious tasks.
* Technological Unification of the Earth: Globally networked technological infrastructure is required to monitor planetary resources in real time, and theoretically make the most efficient use of them in solving planetary problems.
* Scientific Methodology: Decision making regarding the methods of production, what goods and services are to be provided, city planning and resource optimization, preservation and recycling will be arrived at by analysing relevant trends and data, via use of the scientific method.
* Sustainable City Systems: Utilizing a systemic approach for a sustainable global society, city systems may act as microcosm to the global network of technological infrastructure. The city system can incorporate all manufacturing, goods and services that people will use on a daily basis within the city limits. The city system may also utilize a cybernetic central computer to monitor energy and resource supply, usage and other relevant data in real time, relaying this information to other city systems that make up the macrocosm of the technologically unified globe.
George Orwell didn’t foresee the Internet. It’s possible that the (relatively unencumbered)Internet has delayed (note: DELAYED) his prediction of the future.
Student On Arapahoe School Shooter: “Very Proud Of Being A Socialist” (video)
It sounds as though Zeitgeist is essentially Agenda 21 with a slightly different focus. It makes sense that Loughner would be into this, though. The basic premise behind the Bill Ayers small schools is to involve the student in community and political activity and not emphasize grades and testing so much.
I really think that it is the relativity that gets to these guys, though. For instance, Loughner’s teachers said that he often wrote a word at the top of his papers that seemed unrelated to anything that they were doing in class. My guess is that he was thinking about the relativity of the word, like what the definition of “is” is. I just think that when an unstable, immature mind is confronted with this off the wall philosophy, that these boys just loose touch with reality.
I think that it goes the other way around, too. I think that unstable minds are attracted to off the wall philosophies.
This “socialist” deletion is very typical of the Denver Post. They just can’t confine their opinions and prejudices to the editorial page. The reason I no longer subscribe.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Enemedia strikes again.
Orwell definitely got the year wrong. The government he described in 1984 has not come to pass yet in Western Europe and the U.S. But every year our country seem to get closer to the dystopia Orwell predicted.
It doesn’t fit the pre-approved MediaMatters/Soros-financed agenda
