Everyday we are bombarded by a very well organized propaganda apparatus of the Democrat party. During and after the FBI’s fake investigation of Hillary Clinton’s felonious action as Secretary of State and Democrat presidential candidate, documentation of agreements between the major TV networks and the Democrat National Committee came to light. This document evidenced years of liberal/democrat bias and was an agreement by the major media entities to promote the democrat party line. Since that disclosure all pretense of impartiality has evaporated from the major media corporations.
Propaganda is used principally by communist and fascist governments to sway and control public opinion. As early as 1928 expert observers stated, “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” The digital age has given rise to new ways of disseminating propaganda, for example, through the use of bots and algorithms to create computational propaganda and spread fake or biased news using social media. Google supported and assisted the election of the Obama administration and has boasted that it controls fifteen million votes.
Propaganda no longer refers to a merely persuasive argument in favor of a particular position, rather it incorporates, deceit, rote catch phrases repeated frequently and in unison. Propaganda seeks an emotional response that is usually opposed to a reasoned informed decision. Political correctness is an outgrowth of its goal of thought control. Propagandists attack those who oppose it, personally, politically and seek to ruin the reputation of its opponents, through lies, subversive and false accusations, unjust bias and innuendo. Almost every day radio hosts put together an accurate montage of media catch phrases that are echoed verbatim across the major media networks.
One of the first things the Nazi’s did was to take over the German media and substitute their sole united propaganda media. Many Americans no longer listen to the major networks or give them any credibility, but they have their followers and unwitting supporters. The famous book and movie, “1984”, was written in 1949 by George Orwell. It describes a society controlled by an unknown government referred to as “Big Brother”, which controls history and language. History is frequently and conveniently rewritten and language is replaced by “Newspeak”. The book was written 35 years in advance and it depicts a time now 36 years in our past, but we are yet moving ever closer to the tyranny Orwell predicted.
God never promised that America would remain strong and free, but the Bible is full of His good promises for those who believe, follow and cling to Yeshua, Messiah. It is not too late to cry out to God for mercy. “When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple. “Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.'” (Jonah 2: 7-9).
