Skip to comments.It’s official: Hollywood is the hidden “Ministry of Propaganda”
Posted on 01/27/2014 9:49:18 PM PST by Impala64ssa
Recently a left-wing writer for The Atlantic referred to the movie Lone Survivor as propaganda. Obviously, this person really cant tell fact from fiction, but then again liberal progressives dont live in the real world of facts.
On that same note, the Obama administration is now going to the makers of make-believe for help in promulgating the grand lie and scheme known as Obamacare.
As reported by John Nolte on Breitbart.com
According to an email invitation sent out by the Writers Guild East and obtained by Breitbart News, members of the Hollywood elite and the Obama Administration will be gathering in the middle of next month for a panel titled, The Affordable Care Act: Comedy, Drama & Reality Portraying ObamaCare in TV & Film. Julie Green Bataille, a director at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), will represent the Obama administration.
See the whole invitation here.
Now folks, in the truest sense of the Orwellian definition, that is propaganda. The left-wing Norman Lear Center is co-sponsoring the event. As Nolte says, Two powerful left-wing Hollywood organizations combining with the federal governments powerful CMS is not something to be taken lightly.
Youre darn tootin and imagine if a Republican administration went to members of Hollywood about promoting a failing conservative policy in TV and film? What would the Left have said if President Bushs administration went to screenwriters to inject positive stories about the Iraq combat operation as part of the surge?
Nolte also makes another great observation:
This invitation should serve as a reminder that, with rare exceptions (that only prove the rule), Hollywood is not filled with brave rebels, iconoclasts, and individual thinkers; but rather they are servants eager to do their governments bidding and who understand that success in the entertainment business means never coloring outside the lines of left-wing conformity.
Now we have to be on the lookout for subliminal messaging intertwined in our regular daily programming and movie scripts that seek to conform us to a certain political agenda. Are we far away from a day when were told to tune in for the daily indoctrination? Oh wait maybe thats The View or the mass same-sex wedding production number on the Grammys last night.
If this doesnt concern every American who is mostly blissfully unaware because the mainstream liberal progressive media isnt reporting it then we deserve the fate that awaits us.
Ladies and gentlemen, this represents a clear and present danger to our Republic. If Obamacare was such a good policy then why all these backdoor actions? And remember, Hollywood doesnt do anything for free whos paying for this? And if Hollywood and these writers are doing this for free, its even more disconcerting because it means America has a hidden Ministry of Propaganda.
The progressive socialists are incapable of governing and legislating. Therefore they pursue force, coercion, deception, and propaganda to enable their ends. All hands on deck, all in, weve got to spread the word on this and force the Obama administration to abandon this endeavor. If this means turning off television and not going to movies, we need to send a message to Hollywood. Are you with me?
Joe wasn’t involved in the Hollywood thing
Joe wasnt involved in the Hollywood thing
Joe WHO?... surely you do not mean Joseph McCarthy?..
Hollywood has been a communist cell group for at least 60 years.. maybe 75... Still IS..
Of course some of the Communists are really Fascists..
Some are Nazi’s...
All three are just forms of Socialism..
Progressive is another “MASK” they use..
But all are “DEMOCRATS”... for democracy and overthrowing this Republic..
I stand corrected, it was the HUAC, they were both correct in their assessment of commie infiltration.
I’m with West : BOYCOTT ALL HOLLYWOOD MOVIES
Only see those , which like Lone Survivor , tell a true and honest story about our troops and how great they are . All the other BS fantasies , skip them . Not one dime more to these s#itheads . Allen has a great idea : Boycott
It’s hidden? They’re doing a bloody poor job of hiding anything. It’s totally blatant.
They are only getting more blatant at what they have been doing all along. If the elections laws had any actual real teethe to them a big junk of TV and movie revenues would have to be recorded, and limited, to regulation set limits on “in-kind” political contributions.
We saw an example last night at the Grammy Awards.
There must be a backdoor money thing going on that we do not know about. I say, follow the money. Always follow the money.
“Now we have to be on the lookout for subliminal messaging intertwined in our regular daily programming and movie scripts that seek to conform us to a certain political agenda.”
Love ya Allen, but a person would have to have been living on an island for 50 years to not have known this all along. It’s not like some great surprise.
Of course, considering how even the right can’t live without it’s daily soma distributed over 500 channels, perhaps it IS a surprise.
What I meant to say was the Grammy Awards last night was a blatant example of the Hollywood Left’s control over world entertainment. It was an example of the 60s era Left rising up like a Phoenix from the ashcan of history just in time to make their impact on the upcoming election cycle. We know that’s where it is heading.
I wrote about this scandal, 2 days ago..
THE LIBERAL HOLLYWOOD SCANDAL, EXPOSED BY OBAMACARE.
I dare say it wasn’t hidden. It was completely in our face from the time we born.
We only hid it from ourselves because the fantasy was always better than the truth.
..”We only hid it from ourselves because the fantasy was always better than the truth”...
Well said UCANSEE2 Well said...
Hollywood's a bunch of conformists... they sold out to the Nazis in the 40's...
Why yes, yes I do.
*Senator* Joe McCarthy wasn't involved in the *House* Committee on Un-American Activities (aka HUAC). HUAC's proceedings led to the Hollywood blacklist when JM was a freshman Senator w/o portfolio.
Several ironies in the McCarthy story - Venona, the SIGINT project that eventually proved McCarthy in large part correct (to the public when declassified), was run by the Army Signal Corps, a primary target of his 1953 Army hearings. And...
Related to the above, Venona had already revealed a number of infiltrators before and during McCarthy’s tenure, but the Signal Corps wasn’t about to make McCarthy’s committee privy to the intel (both for operational security, and out of spite, I suspect).
Also, a two-fer - McCarthy also sought to expose homosexuals in the US govt (1st irony, Roy Cohn much?), and, Venona exposed the Cambridge Four (Five) spy ring, several members of which had been recruited via threats to out them. Not a threat that would probably work now, of course, but was definitely a security risk back then.
Movies - take them as they run - are fiction. Im sorry, but I see no possible principled way of controlling the perspective projected by fiction, without outlawing storytelling altogether. NO SALE.OTOH journalism is nonfiction - at least, journalists propagandize to the effect that they arent making it up - and journalists are in principle subject to libel suits if they misrepresent a living person. And that is what should be done to them - a good Alinsky tactic, holding them to their own professed standards - and those lawsuits should name the Associated Press and its membership, joint and several liability. And they should be RICO lawsuits for triple damages, and they should complain of torts against all conservatives - everyone who has donated to defending George Zimmerman, the Duke Lacrosse Three, etc., etc. And about the broadcast news that Gore had won Florida in 2000.
