The self-distruction of Socialism unfolds before our eyes; the Polls tell the Story

Couric - Lame Stream Media Socialist Attack Troll

The reason Socialism has such a foothold is the Lame Stream Media.

The Socialists own the Lame Stream Media.

Why else do stories like Climategate, ACORN, SEIU offenses, and white washing of Obama and the Socialist Congress happen 24/7? And why are so many working in the Lame Stream Media brainwashed by Socialism? answer: Marxist infiltration of Education.

The citizens of this country do not have to accept Socialism as inevitable… Un-American activities do not have to be tolerated. Such activities are treasonous in my view and the view of many Americans.

This is a very serious problem…

And, this is one of the main reasons I blog.

Americans have to go around the Lame Stream Media to get the word out to the Nation’s Citizens.

That tactic, along with FOX News, is working.

And, the Socialists are terminally in a RAGE about it. Notice the Approval Polls keep nudging down down down… notice polling companies like Gallup and Rasmussen Reports have come under attack by the Obama Surrogates.

If getting out the word were solely the domain of the Lame Stream Media, we all would already be calling each other Comrade.

There is a resurgence of push back and rejection of Socialism/Marxism… and it is happening against Socialists/Marxists in the Media including Hollywood, News Organizations, Education, and in Government. This is happening on an individual and collective basis.

New All Time Record Low set today, Sunday, December 13, 2009

We Non-Socialists are making history… each of us here and millions of others… in our standing up against this attempted takeover of America by Socialists.

At the Dallas Tea Party Protest, Summer 2009

Each of us, and this blog and our personal blogs is the legal and peaceful act of taking Citizen Responsibility and not laying down and being sheep.

A comment from the blog…

samiam60 // December 13, 2009 at 9:14 am

Quick side note:

Yesterday I spent the day at my Grandson’s 2nd birthday party. My ex-mother in law was there who is an outspoken Liberal Obama supporter.
I went loaded for bear expecting an onslaught of Alinsky from her and I am happy to report that for the first time in 37 years 7 months and 8 days the old battle-ax was Silent.

This has never happened before and I am sure it is a sign that we are winning over the minds of many who have been misled by the Socialist Campaign. I am not saying this woman has changed her views but rather is now posturing herself in a defensive mode and knows better than to attack those of us who know the Truth.

It is a victory :)

That was a wonderful testament by Samiam.

I have been examining commenting habits across the internet and the puffed up arrogance of koolaid drinkers has dried up significantly.

Example, prior to Sarah’s Reloading and publishing her book, koolaid drinking sheep flocked and played pile on to disparage Sarah on non-leftist blogs and articles.

That has subsided by at least 70%… they are going silent…

THE POLLS TELL THE STORY

I can not over emphasis this enough

THE POLLS TELL THE STORY

This is why I often blog about polls and down trending of Obama and other Socialists and Socialist policies.

The CBC, the Congressional Black Caucus, is too stupid to understand why the Socialism they swallowed hook, line, and sinker, is not working… why they are getting slaughtered politically at home by voters… and in typical fashion, they don’t want to take responsibility for the failures of their Socialism… thus, the CBC publicly point their fingers at Obama.

This is just one example of  evidence of Socialist Self-Destruction of which I speak.

    I’m on this blog post, but any other VF blog post makes my browser crash. I can get on any other site and it works fine.

    I was using VFs blog post to test with and it would crash every time. I removed and reinstalled FireFox and it still does it. It’s nuts! I also made sure I didn’t have a virus. Nothing. Hopefully FireFox will find the problem. I’ve emailed them enough last night and this morning.

  6. Foxwood says:

    Wow. Submitted the comment without a crash. I’m going to check out yesterdays blog post again and see if it crashes. BRB, hopefully.

  7. Foxwood says:

    Yeah, it crashes on yesterdays post every time.

  8. VotingFemale says:

    Are you running Windows or Ubuntu, Fox?

    and the main difference is the previous blogpost had many embedded vids in the comment section… there may be a problem with one or more of them and youtube.com is contacted to load each vid’s splash pane.

    Rosie,Rosie,Rosie,

    I did watch your video before and again today. It really is very good and once again I commend you on a far reaching bi-partisan gesture of good will towards America.

    I have to say that I admire your tireless work in saving the Planet and the betterment of Mankind. There is much to say for a person who is committed to making our World a Better and Safer place for all of us to live.

    Perhap’s we all have the same goals in mind when we speak but have different views on how to achieve these vital things.

    Either way it is good to have your input here and I for one am hoping that you might include yourself in your next video.

    vf, don’t sweat it and don’t wear yourself out!

  17. Foxwood says:

    You are very loved, hippie girl…

    I got disillusioned watching the behavior of the Socialists infesting the DEM party during the 2008 primaries as it unfolded… and started taking a very hard look at everything going on and went mortally ballistic…

    Hillary won and the fuckers stripped the nomination from her and handed it to that fucker Obama, their Marxist Golden Boy.

    Hillary was a Liberal Centrist… and could have been tolerated by all but the far right wing. Obama is a Socialist danger to the country.

    Great read VF. You nailed it. The lame stream media besides reporting their side of the story totally misses real stories. Wounder why we aren’t hearing about Christmas sales figures? What about our soldiers being killed in Afghanistan. Sure and occasional report, but certainly not like then President Bush was running the country.

    Obama Statue Slammed by Facebook Critics

    AP

    More than 10,000 people join group on social networking site after statue of President Obama as a boy is erected in Indonesia.

  33. samiam60 says:

    JAKARTA, Indonesia — A statue of President Barack Obama as a boy erected in a Jakarta park has been targeted in a Facebook campaign by thousands who say it should be removed.

    The Facebook group named “Take Down the Barack Obama Statue in Taman Menteng Park” had attracted more than 10,000 members by Tuesday since the 43-inch statue of 10-year-old Obama dressed in shorts and a T-shirt was unveiled in the downtown park on Thursday last week.

    Heru Nugroho, the group’s creator, said he would use the support on the popular social networking Web site to demand that Jakarta Gov. Fauzi Bowo remove the statue.

    “Everybody knows that Obama is a world leader, but he is not our national hero who deserves to be awarded a statue,” Nugroho said.

    “This has hurt our national pride because there are many Indonesian figures who gave worthy service to this nation but no statue has been built for them,” he added.

    Many Indonesians are proud of the fact that Obama lived in Jakarta from 1967 to 1971 with his American mother, his Indonesian stepfather and his half-sister.

    He went by the name “Barry,” attended the local elementary school near where his statue now stands and owned a pet monkey.

    Ron Mullers, a Jakarta resident who came up with the idea of the statue and raised money for it, said it was supposed to inspire local children to follow their dreams.

    “It’s ridiculous. I’m shocked,” Mullers, chairman of the local nonpolitical Friends of Obama Foundation, calling the move against the statue political.

    Mullers likened the backlash to the controversy over whether Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. Obama accepted that accolade in Oslo the same day as his statue was unveiled by Jakarta Mayor Sylviana Murni.

    Murni ruled out moving the statue, saying that it has been erected the correct approvals and without political motive.

    “Everyone in this country can express their opinions freely and give awards like statues to anyone freely,” Murni said. The governor was overseas on business and was not available for comment Tuesday.

    The statue cost more than $10,000. The money was donated by eight Indonesian patrons, a television station and a disaster relief charity.

    Obama’s Safe Schools Czar Tied to Lewd Readings for 7th Graders

    By Maxim Lott

    Obama adviser Kevin Jennings is under fresh attack after it was revealed that the pro-gay group he formerly headed recommends books his critics say are pornographic.

  35. samiam60 says:

    President Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar,” already a target of social conservatives for his past drug abuse and what they say is his promotion of homosexuality in schools, is under fresh attack after it was revealed that the pro-gay group he formerly headed recommends books his critics say are pornographic.

    The group under fire is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which Kevin Jennings, now the assistant deputy secretary for safe and drug-free schools in the Department of Education, founded and ran from 1990 to 2008.

    GLSEN says it works to create a welcoming atmosphere for homosexual students in schools, and that effort includes recommending books for students of all ages.

    But critics say many of the books, particularly some that are targeted for children between Grades 7 to 12, are inappropriately explicit. A full list is available at the blog Gateway Pundit, which has published dozens of controversial passages from the books.

    One recommended book is titled “Queer 13: Lesbian and Gay Writers Recall Seventh Grade.” On pages 43 through 45, writer Justin Chin tells of how as a 13-year-old, he went along with “near-rapes” by older men, but “really did enjoy those sexual encounters.” Chin also recounts each sexual action he performed with an “ugly f*** of a man” he met on a bus.

    In another book, “Passages of Pride,” the author writes about a 15-year-old boy’s relationship with a much older man.

    “Near the end of summer, just before starting his sophomore year in high school, Dan picked up a weekly Twin Cities newspaper. Scanning the classifieds, he came upon an ad for a “Man-2-Man” massage. Home alone one day, he called the telephone number listed in the ad and set up an appointment to meet a man named Tom…. Even though Tom was older, almost twice Dan’s age, Dan felt unthreatened by him. Dan admits Tom was a ‘troll’ in every sense of the word — an older closeted gay man seeking sex with a man much younger. But Dan says he was not intimidated by the discrepancy in their ages. ‘He kind of had me in a corner in that he knew I didn’t have access to anything I wanted.’ says Dan. ‘But everything was consensual.'”

    On Page 13 of a third book, “Reflections of a Rock Lobster,” the author recounts his sexual encounters in first grade.

    “By first grade I was sexually active with many friends. In fact, a small group of us regularly met in the grammar school lavatory to perform fellatio on one another. A typical week’s schedule would be Aaron and Michael on Monday during lunch; Michael and Johnny on Tuesday after school; Fred and Timmy at noon Wednesday; Aaron and Timmy after school on Thursday. None of us ever got caught, but we never worried about it anyway.”

    “Reflections of a Rock Lobster” was recommended in 1995, the year Jennings became GLSEN’s first executive director; “Passages of Pride” made the list in 1997 and “Queer 13″ in 1999. Those are just three out of over 100 books that GLSEN has recommended for students in grades 7-12 since 1990, and all three remain on GLSEN’s recommended reading list.

    Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council, says the content of the books is shocking, and it raises concerns about Jennings’ judgment.

    “The graphic sexual content of these books is so extreme that I think any average parent or citizen, regardless of how they feel about homosexuality, would be shocked at these books being recommended to young people,” Sprigg said.

    GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard defended her group’s recommendations, telling FoxNews.com in a written statement:

    “Some of the books that might be used with young adult audiences contain mature content, as is true of many memoirs and works of literature. Because of the presence of mature content in some of the works, GLSEN provides very clear guidelines throughout, recommending that adults review each book to make sure the book is suitable.”

    Those guidelines, listed on each book recommendation page, read: “All BookLink items are reviewed by GLSEN staff for quality and appropriateness of content. However, some titles for adolescent readers contain mature themes. We recommend that adults selecting books for youth review content for suitability.”

    But critics say the guidelines themselves are damning, because they confirm that GLSEN staff have checked the books for appropriateness. And Jennings, they point out, was in charge at the time.

    “It’s like Jennings just doesn’t realize he’s working with kids here…. You need a totally different set of rules when you’re working with kids,” said Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

    LaBarbera said the books should be seen in light of other recent controversies surrounding Jennings.

    In September it came out that, when he was a teacher in Massachusetts, Jennings did not report an incident in which a 16-year-old boy told him that he was having sexual relations with an older man he met in a bus station bathroom. After that, 53 Republican members of the House publicly called for Jennings to be dismissed.

    But Alvin McEwen, who runs a blog called “Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters” and has commented extensively on the Jennings case, said GLSEN’s book recommendations should be seen in a different light.

    “GLSEN is saying that parents should decide. They are saying these books may be a good idea to read, but ultimately it is up to parents,” he told FoxNews.com.

    McEwen said that even though Jennings was the director of GLSEN when the books were recommended, there was no evidence that he personally selected the books.

    “This is ridiculous guilt-by-association … just another moral panic thought up by people who don’t have any legitimate reason to oppose Jennings, so they’ve made a mountain out of molehill,” he said.

    Department of Education spokesman Justin Hamilton declined to comment about Jennings’ role in recommending the books.

    But critics say Jennings, as GLSEN’s first full-time employee and first executive director, must be held responsible.

    “He was at GLSEN from the beginning and was in charge during the time when these books were approved,” said Warren Throckmorton, a professor at Grove City College.

    The blogger at Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft, wrote elsewhere concerning a “black book” that contains a gay bar guide and explicit sexual references that was handed out at a GLSEN event.

    But McEwen said it’s not clear that Jennings — or GLSEN — knew about the guide, which was distributed by Fenway Community Health officials at a GLSEN event, which they later said had been a mistake.

    Hoft has also alleged that Jennings and GLSEN were involved in Planned Parenthood’s purported distribution of “fisting kits” [fisting involves forcing one's hand into another person's rectum or vagina] at at least one GLSEN event. The kit was actually for making a “dental dam” — designed to prevent STD transmission during oral sex.

    McEwen said that the attacks on Jennings and GLSEN were motivated largely by homophobia.

    “There are a lot of heterosexual books that are just as explicit. In the first page of ‘The Color Purple’ [a 1982 novel that has caused controversy when assigned in schools], the character talks about being raped in graphic terms… what’s in [GLSEN's] books is no different from what’s in The Color Purple.”

    But Sprigg disagrees that books like “The Color Purple” are comparable to those recommended by GLSEN.

    “We are not talking about ‘The Great Gatsby’ or ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ here,” he said. “A lot of people who have only read the news and opinion pieces on this story, without reading the actual excerpts, may think that we are talking about the kind of sexual content that might, in a film, earn a PG-13 or R rating. We are not.

    “This is material that, if portrayed visually, would be a triple-X hard-core porn film, and quite possibly meet the legal definition of obscenity. In fact, I think the homosexual content is the only thing preventing the outcry from being even greater, because some people fear being labeled as ‘anti-gay.’ If the content were heterosexual in nature, there would be no one defending it at all.”

    Kyle,

    What are you? all of 22? and what do you know? what your Lewiston, Maine, Bates College Socialist professors tell you?

    Go spout a Code Pink protest poster, wet behind the ears boy…

    “Dissent is Patriotic”

    http://www-tc.pbs.org/newshour/vote2008/rnc/codepink/media/0903_codepink_lg_group.jpg

    you are a brain washed koolaider… welcome to the waste of your life.

    Kyle says 2010/02/01 at 4:09pm

    Do you know what socialism is? Or do you just rant against is without providing any information? Be critical of your elected officials, but don’t become a talking head for Glen Beck. You have no analysis in your piece which makes your writing weak and your conclusions invalid.

    The Tea Party movement can be summed up with the quote on a supporters poster stating “keep the government’s hands off my medicare.” This shows the Tea Party supporters a) are totally uninformed (medicare IS a government program), b) they rant against taxes but don’t want any of their services cut, c) use inane terms such as “socialism” and “left wing media” without understanding what they are talking about. The movement has been plagued by commentators whose analyses are filled with emotional appeals and lacking any informative details. And if you want to discuss socialism (really communism in this case), read a little of Karl Marx. Open up Das Kapital (it’s long but totally worth it) and you may understand what he is talking about. He was fighting for working class (hence the quote from the communist manifesto: “workers of the world unite!”). I hope you can respond with a more critical point and some information to support your claims.
