It Begins… Leftist Icon Calls For Violent Socialist War Against Tea Partiers …Update: Ted Rall Writes In – Lashes Out at Conservatives

Leftist hero, Kennedy Award Winner and Pulitzer finalist Ted Rall is calling for a violent socialist revolution in America. The far left hero wants leftists to take up arms and kill tea partiers.

Verum Serum has video from his appearance on MSNBC last night and posted this from his book calling for violent leftist revolution.

We are here because the U.S. is going to end soon. There’s going to be an intense, violent, probably haphazard struggle for control. It’s going to come down to us versus them. The question is: What are you going to do about it?…

A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?…

The millions of partisans who follow Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and right-wing televangelists happen to be the best-armed people around, and they despise just about everyone who doesn’t think and pray like them. They will see collapse as affirmation of their beliefs that secular liberalism is destructive. They will also see it as an opportunity to create a new, ordered world atop the ashes. They will act to stop teenage sluts from getting abortions, teach n*ggers a lesson, and slaughter those spics, dots, and everyone else who doesn’t fit into their vision of what and who is right…

I want to kick people in the ass. To get them thinking. To get you thinking. I want you to understand the situation—your situation. I want you to see that revolt is a good idea, and that it has never been more necessary.

UPDATE: At 8:57 this morning Ted Rall wrote this:

Can you guys read? In the excerpt from the Manifesto I explicitly state that the extreme right is better armed. That’s the problem: uneducated fools who think the earth is 6,800 years old are dangerous.

Actually Ted, you wrote that,

“I want to kick people in the ass… I want you to see that revolt is a good idea, and that it has never been more necessary.”

That would be a call to violence, Ted. Those are your words, not mine.
Wise up.

    Hey, sweetie? Mr. Rall? Do you realize you’re trying to pick a *real* fight with people who are mostly firm Second Amendment fans and who often have conceal carry permits, a gun locker at home, and an annual pass to a gun range?

    And do you realize that *your* side would have lots of people who go “eeeeew” when they think of guns, like they might get cooties or something from one?

    So, Mr. Rall, which side of your war is most-likely to win?

    This is what Glenn Beck is covering this week. He is describing these violent whacks and the methods. He has all the footnotes on his site. Beck encourages viewers to fact check his data.
    Rall is nr one I guess. Better turn off NPR and tune in. My teacher friends won’t. they don’t like anytalk hosts that yell-“ooo it is too aggresssive, we like auto talk and Keilor. and Limbaugh is a liar.”Better at least listen up to what Beck is saying,chk his data on his website.

    this is a fight that socialists/communists can not and will not win.

  • ironbill

    After watching about 2 minutes of Mr. Rall expand on his manifesto, it became clear that Mr. Rall lacks the intestinal fortitude to walk the walk.

    It’s easy to act the tough guy when you’re drawing cartoons.

    It’s difficult when you actually have to sacrifice everything you have (kind of like the Founders or today’s military)

    You strike me as kind of a p***y, Ted.

  • Poor Richard

    Liberal insanity. Compare this emotional rhetoric and promotion of violence… this “unthink”, with the Nazi or Communist revolutions. This writer promotes physically attacking those he disagrees with because his arguments fail factual analysis and he does not persuade. His statements are grand and generalized, deliberately without specifics or form. The similarities of his tactics are profound and most disturbing.

    There is a war all right. It is a war for the minds of our youth. We abandoned the field for 3 generations and now we are paying the price. American history, exceptionalism, simple civics and the basics of free market economy must be taught to our youth.

    There is a proven constitutional system for change. It has worked better than any other in history for 234 years.

    This person advocates our youth to throw it away and burn it all down because he’s unhappy with the outcome. Nevermind that the Tea Party view reflects the vast majority of Americans. America refutes his views. When you cannot persuade, you advocate violence.

    Contrast the author’s attitude to the American People, 70% of whom strongly disagree with Obama and the Democrats over their policies and think we’re on the wrong course.

    However, we chose to work within the framework of our brilliant Constitution to effect change by exercising our first amendment rights of free speech, free press, petition, assembly, and religion — then we voted.

    The problem indeed, lies before us. It is not politics. It is the great deficiency of common sense education. That must change.

    Ted Rall is trying to relive the 1960’s. He wants another Kent State, he wants another Selma. He thinks that he can send a bunch of young and stupid people into the parth of violence, have then injured of killed, and then HE can take to a microphone and denounce the Right and be the saviour of the world.

    It is long past time to feel this America-hating piece of trash the silence and apathy he deserves.

  • squeaky

    he shouldn’t be anywhere but locked up. personally, i think he and anyone else who gets the mobs riled up to actually put action to his/their words needs to be held accountable for
    the damage that is done. it does boil down to how and what the masses interpret what’s been said – when they literally interpret what you say and you try to say it was just hypothetical.

    They can’t put their system in place until they tear down the existing system. We The People will not let them. This little punk Ted Rall is no better than the anarchists who riot during World Bank meetings, except he is a coward who would watch from a window while his followers are killed. Note that he didn’t spout his call for violence two years ago when the left controlled everything. It is only now that the system corrected itself in a big way. Thanks to people like Glenn Beck & Rush, America is waking up to the leftist agenda.

    Why do we need a more violent war, did you see the election results? That was a big enough slaughter for me, until the next big one in 2012.

    Seems like the losers need violence.

    Like Rall’s capable of kicking anybody’s ass.

    Nope, what he wants is for some big, strong, manly jihadi to come along, and kick asses for him!

    As I recall, he also wants Christians killed too; he was probably slobbering with delight when those Iraqi Christians were murdered; Teddy is that kind of guy. All he wants is the jihadi of his dreams.

    Now, here’s the real question; is anybody in the MSM going to call him out, the way people get called out when they admit to being nervous in the presence of Moslems on an airplane, or say something else politically incorrect?

    trouble is, they fight via stealth legislation..

    as it is, they seem to be doing a great job of defeating
    the US Constitution without a single hot being fired..

    besides, by the time the real revolution rolls around, their civilian
    army, along with the global citizen army will be armed to the teeth..

    power hungry hypocrites never do their own work, however,
    they’ve no compunctions about others doing it for them..

    [a mass number of older people are on their way out, the majority of hippie taught University students are brainwashed, and our youth are being indoctrinated as i type.. meantime, birth rates around the globe are going down while the Muslim pop is rising.. hope you can figure out where this is headed.. and sorry to say, but the way i see, time is not on our side.. we also lack fortitude, we barley make a needed move until the very last moment, and even then, not unless it’s absolutely necessary to survive.. *sigh*

    ps: i’ve said thinsg lie the following before in the
    hopes to stir, but sadly say it now in confirmation..

    this is how tyrants, dictators, and the like
    rose to such prominent & disastrous power..

    those who believe that what has happened time & again elsewhere cannot possibly happen to them and do nothing to stop it from happening, is why it not only can but will happen to them..

    This is the reason why I left the Left. Leftists in the West come off sounding so peaceful, thoughtful and relaxed. But then you look at their comrades outside of the West such as in Cuba, South America, Russia, China, North Korea, etc, and you see the real fascistic and violent heart of leftist Marxism.

    The only reason leftists act somewhat sane here in the West is because they’re hiding what they truly believe and because they’ve been forced to adopt at least part of the right-wing world view of individual liberty.

    Most leftists in the West are sticking with the tactic of slow brainwashing us through the education system, the entertainment industry and the media because it seems to at least be somewhat working.

    So they’re willing to put off violence, for now, and give their peaceful propaganda efforts a couple more decades to produce gradual socialist revolution.

    But you see hints of their true militant intentions from time to time with people like this and from the anarachists especially.

    They hate capitalism with every fiber of their being and they view America as the only real bulwark of capitalism in the world. Once they can topple that central bastion of capitalism then the rest in the world will be a piece of cake.

    That’s why they hate America so much and are doing everything they can to ensure we implode. Because once we fall, nothing will stop their global socialist “utopia” from finally becoming a reality.

    Don’t give into their threats fellow right-wingers. Work peacefully but passionately to retake our culture and government from within in order to defeat these deranged leftist traitors.

    Forward Mr. Rall’s threat to DHS for inciting terrorism. He’s calling for Liberal Jihad.

  • Adam

    I think this is a new low for Rall (Who thankfully hasn’t done much to draw any kind of attention to himself for a few months). He’s usually content to just draw mind- numbingly amateurish cartoons (My brother could draw better when he was in the 4th Grade than Rall can as an adult) and sling black- hearted insults at a lot of good people. Now, he’s openly advocating violence and revolt? He’s staying just shy of openly committing an arrestable offense (He’s not quite there, because he didn’t list specific individuals to physically attack). Fortunately, he has pretty much no relevance or support, so he’ll most likely continue to fade into obscurity the way he’s been doing ever since he got fired from the rag that used to publish him after he made that cartoon that made fun of the mentally disabled.

  • Dave in Houston

    Mr. Rall, where is the love, man? All you need is love, ya, da, da, da, daa. Picking a fight with us? Not to bright.

    Well if it comes down to it, most of us on this side of the fence, as he acknowledges, are already well armed. We also outnumber those on his side. Not a bright move, Mr. Rall. You are picking a fight with a more numerous, better armed, more motivated and intelligent foe, as you have now labeled us. For you own safety,sir, go back into your dark, dank hole.

    I was thinking myself as I listened to this piece of crap this morning that he has really quite jumped across the line with both boots on. But then you look around and see people who really did cross the line in a HUGE way – Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, John Kerry, Jane Fonda – and they seem to have not only not been punished for their actions, they seem to have been rewarded, well rewarded.

  • nadadhimmi

    Sounds as if Ted Rall is prepared to fight to the death of his last supporter. As “The Leader” dontcha know, he wouldn’t actually have to FIGHT or anything. But he be down for the death struggle of his followers. Kinda like Che! Do you think Rall, like Che, will wiggle, squirm, beg and cry like a girl when his ass is put up against a wall?

  • Why don’t they get it? we don’t want to take over the country. We just want to have the government leave us the hell alone.
    Getting all of the libertarian gun owners to create a revolt is like herding cats. we will not be cohesive they way these idiot commies fear. But god them them if they ever push us into a corner. we will go guns a blazing.

    I second that motion. I’m tired of the libs who claim they want some big ambiguos change and then go out and exhort people to violence. Didn’t Obama just do something like that during this last election? Something about Latinos needing to band together and punish thier enemies?

    Obama & Dems Make Great Strides… In Achieving Communist Goals for America
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, April 18, 2010, 8:35 AM
    You read that right…
    In 1963 The Honorable A. S. Herlong, Jr of Florida recited the Communist Goals for America in the House of Representatives on Thursday, January 10, 1963.
    It looks like the communists, working through the democratic party, have made some great strides under the current Obama-Pelosi Regime.
    It’s frightening. Via Free Republic.
    Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
    At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
    [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
    CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
    The democrats are not reshaping America into a European socialist-style government… They’ve gone past that. Not even Hugo Chavez has been as aggressive as this bunch.

    “citizens in uniform”

    [The armed forces, therefore, according to the decree issued by Chávez last July 22nd, in the practice will be responsible for enforcing by means of arms the failed socialist constitutional reform. To that end, in order to dilute the country into its militia-like organization, will “prepare and organize the people for integral defense.” In addition, it will “forge alliances or coalitions with the armed forces of foreign countries.” The ongoing military revolution will have not borders. At the end, there is one single purpose -retired military officer Chávez Frías will boast his five-sun insignia appropriate for his new rank of commander in chief, awarded by himself, and not by the grace of God.]

    Obama’s ‘Civilian Security Force’

    [Advocates of limited government are concerned about comments by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) regarding his national service plans and views on the “burden of global citizenship.”]

    Senator Obama, Citizen of the World

    [European socialists and Middle Eastern Muslims are wildly enthusiastic about Senator Obama, because he styles himself a citizen of the world who, like all liberal- progressive- socialists, aims for world government.

    American liberal- progressive- socialism, in the person of Senator Obama, is a carbon copy of European socialism, and Islamic jihadists recognize that socialism offers no opposition to their ruthless jihad to enslave the entire world.

    For historical perspective, let’s look to one of France’s leading socialist theoreticians, the late Jean- François Revel. As I wrote at the time of M. Revel’s death in May, 2006:

    Jean- François Revel, who died last week at the age of 82, was that exceedingly rare person: a French intellectual who didn’t despise the United States, an intellectual who understood the cancerous prognosis of liberalism.

    Revel’s 1983 “How Democracies Perish” described liberalism’s debilitating effect on confronting the threat of domination by the Soviet Union. His observations apply equally today in our long-term struggle against Islamic jihad.]

    RTWT!!

    **World Citizen** Obama has every intention of “reforming” the
    US Constitution, ergo, the US (viewer discernment required)..

    Global Socialism

    [We think Obama has bought into the United Nations nightmare scheme called The United Nations Millennium Declaration in which the UN calls for: “the eradication of poverty by redistribution of wealth and land,” wiping the slate clean of “the debts of developing countries,” and, it continues… a fair distribution of Earth’s resources.”

    [..]

    I am convinced the change Mr. Obama touts is, in fact, a thourough trashing of the US Constitution, changing America from a democratic republic to a socialist country under a socialist government, giving up the miracle of capitalism for the nightmare of socialism, giving up the idea of private property, you know, so the wealth can be “redistributed”, reducing the size and strength of our military and giving that money away in the form of “social” programs, again to redistribute the wealth, and finally, placing the US firmly in the grasp of the United Nations, which is, in my opinion, one of the most corrupt organizations ever designed by the mind of man.]

    It makes you look stupid and uneducated.

  • RedBeard

    Ted Rall is nothing but a vile and deranged punk with a big mouth. A quick look at his “professional work” will verify that.

    I also feel confident that he is, as are most big mouthed punks, a coward at heart.

    So Ted, by all means, bring it on. We’ll be waiting. And waiting, and waiting, and waiting.

  • ahem

    Rall is just the first of many. You have to realize that there’s a radical remnant of hard leftists who are not going to go away quietly. I suspect it’s soon going to resemble 1968 again. I expect plenty of violence from these juveniles. Be prepared. It’s the calm before the storm.

    From the larger excerpt over at VerumSerum:

    “Christian fundamentalists, the millennial end-of-theworlders obsessed with the Left Behind series about the End Times, neo-Nazi racists, rural black-helicopter Michigan Militia types cut from the same inbred cloth as Timothy McVeigh, allied with “mainstream” gun nuts and right-wing Republicans, have been planning, preparing, and praying for the destruction of the “Godless,” “secular” United States for decades.”

    This Rall idiot is a walking, talking cliche and his book is most likely nothing more than regurgitated leftard talking points and vile, baseless insults, packed into run-on sentences that would make Dickens envious, just like the one above. It should be sold in drug stores, right next to syrup of ipecac.

    Violent revolution has been a leftist fantasy for decades. They desperately want race war, riots, and other destructive acts.

    They may not want to confront gun owning guys directly but don’t forget these people, while relatively small in number, can cause an awful lot of havoc. Bombs in a mall anyone? Shooting at school buses? The Weather Underground wanted to blow up banks, police stations, even military dances. Imagine a bunch of union thugs becoming Unabombers. Imagine cooperation with Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, and Muslim Brotherhood.

    “They will see collapse as affirmation of their beliefs that secular liberalism is destructive.”

    What’s funny is that a collapse would not only be an affirmation, it would be yet another example showing that secular socialist liberalism doesn’t work. History shows that socialism, communism, Marxism, etc. don’t liberate people, but instead lead to economic inefficiencies and widespread suffering. The protest of the suffering leads to the need for government to control the people through force and severe, intolerable oppression. It is always the same; in every case, every time.

    I used to actually listen to Rall in the late 90’s on the radio here in LA. He was actually down to earth back then. Really. He had a part of his show called ‘stan watch’ as in afganistan, turkmenistan, etc.. kind of like a comedy act. But he had traveled in that area for some reason and was very knowledgable about them. After 9/11, he told his audience that the Bush admin had contacted him with what he knew about afganistan and their infrastructure.. He was mad as hell about 9/11 and supported the Bush admin.

    I can only speculate, but I bet he became very guilty with the thought that the info he may have given the Bush admin was used in the attack on the taliban after 9/11. He lost his radio show around that time as I recall. It was actually carried on a ‘right wing’ radio station KFI AM640.

    He went off the rails shortly after appearantly. Bizzare. I think 9/11 may have set off a serious psychological illness in Rall, and the leftists are using him. Sad.

    Don’t get me wrong, Rall was always left of center.. but not a lunatic. He was tollerable enough to listen to even for me at the time.

You are the exact opposite of egalitarianism and justice. If this were 1863 you would be a slave owner north of the Mason-Dixon and beat your chattel when they displeased you while printing invectives of those citizens who resided below it and did not own such. It is to our collective misfortune that citizens of your ilk are elevated to a position where you are able to inflict your inexorable vituperation on us all, even those who promote you. That those promoters are too obtuse to recognize the detriment you are to the collective is no excuse for their behavior. Your moral compass is defective and you relish in your pathetic bent. You are one of those who when your family is in a fight would only throw stones from the rear ranks not caring who gets hit.”

    Yesterday, I did what Ted Rall fears most – taught history in Vestavia Hills, AL. Vestavia is the National Education Association’s worst nightmare – a patriotic, pro military, public school system.

    As a Vietnam veteran with a BA in Asian Studies, I was able to explain the events leading to the war in South East Asia – the rise of Asian nationalism after Japanese military victories over the West, the triumph of the Viet Minh over France, Eisenhower’s warning about land wars in Asia, JFK’s introduction of US Special Ops and LBJ’s massive build up. We discussed the Tet Offensive, the Easter Offensive, Operation Linebacker and Linebacker II.

    The worst news for the NEA was probably the four questions I told the students to ask when someone referred to our “defeat” in Vietnam.

    1. What battle did US forces lose? Answer: None.
    2. What US units surrendered to the NVA? Answer: None.
    3. What US base was overrun? Answer: None.
    4. How should we characterize the Paris Peace Accords: Answer: US Victory.

    I also explained the Case Church Amendment and the relative costs of the war and the peace in terms of human lives.

    God Bless & Thank You!!

    Vietnam and the Media

    [Ignorance of military and Southeast Asia matters, of communist revolutionary warfare, fueled by potential for lucrative career advancement, unwilling or unable to report on South Vietnamese or Laotian troops except in cases of failure, apparently enthused by the visual impact of war and the destruction it causes, sometimes disdainful of South Vietnamese if not American troops while ignoring Australian, Korean, Thai, and New Zeland forces, the news media proved incapable of depicting Vietnam, and Hanoi’s War, in its entirety . The American public saw the same “bang-bang” every year, and were misled into assuming nothing had changed, nothing was accomplished. Allied temporary defeats were portrayed as permanent setbacks, while victories and accomplishments went unreported, or were, with smug theatrics, cast aside as government propaganda.

    News media misrepresentation not only misled and uninformed the American public, but also prohibited its ability to think and make logical inferences on its own.

    In the final analysis, Vietnam, Southeast Asia, Hanoi’s war, and American involvement could not be, and cannot be, understood, in good part because of media failings, moral, intellectual, and otherwise. Without recognizing this, and knowing that what was reported was not the all-comprehensive truth of the matter, the subject itself cannot be understood. Overall, and efforts of responsible reporters notwithstanding, the nature and extent of news media failure in Vietnam exceeds that of allied military forces who were attempting to and succeeding, despite documented lies and bumbling, to stop Hanoi’s War. Many people died and millions more have greatly suffered simply because the whole story was never told. And because what was portrayed in media reporting was demonstrably not, to use the famous Cronkite phrase, “the way it is.”

    This bitter judgment is itself based on beliefs
    articulated by Robert Elegant, himself a journalist:

    “Illusionary events reported by the press as well as real events within the press corps were more decisive than the clash of arms or the contention of ideologies. For the first time in modern history, the outcome of a war was determined not on the battlefield but on the printed page, and above all, on the television screen. ”

    Looking back coolly, I believe it can be said that South Vietnam and American forces actually won the limited military struggle. They virtually crushed the Viet Cong in the South, the “native” guerillas who were directed, reinforced, and equipped from Hanoi, and thereafter they threw back the invasion by regular North Vietnamese divisions. Nonetheless, the war was finally lost to the invaders after the U.S. disengagement because the political pressures built up by the media had made it quite impossible for Washington to maintain even the minimal material and moral support that would have enabled the Saigon regime to continue effective resistance.”

    Elegant, a highly acclaimed British reporter on
    Vietnam, later added these terrible words:

    “Never before Vietnam had the collective policy of the media sought by graphic and unremitting distortion, the victory of the enemies of the correspondents own side.”

    Could this possibly be the truth about the performance of the U.S. media in Vietnam? In ending this series, from my extended observation and study of the media while on the home front during the war, this is certainly the way it looked to me. And many others. Said Senator Margaret Chase Smith, “The press has become more sympathetic to the enemy than to our own national interest.” (Congressional Record, June 16, 1971)]

    http://www.nytimes.com/1997/08/11/nyregion/peter-braestrup-68-war-reporter-and-library-of-congress-editor.html

    Right before Tet he became WaPo Saigon Bureau chief. When the fighting began he hurried back to the Cho Lon district where most correspondents lived and where guerilla fighting was very intense. As a former infantry lieutenant, he could accurately assess the flow of the battle while other members of the media could not keep themselves safe. There is an excellent oral history in LBJ library.

    Considering that “dots” is used right alongside “spics” and “n*ggers”, I assume that “dots” is an ethnic slur. If so, I guess that “dots” is a rude word for “Indians” (because some people from India paint a dot on their forehead between their eyes).

    But then I’m just guessing. Because I don’t use that word, see. I didn’t hear kids using the word when I was growing up. And for all the rightwing sites I visit and read, I don’t recall ever seeing the word used in that way online, ever.

The coming race war is just the beginning and it’s part of a long thought out plot by the people who are in power and I guarantee the governmnet you see on TV isn’t a part of that plan!

    just a sample:

    “unless the white masses really understand, and the black masses really understand, there’s going to be the largest bloodbath in America”

    al Mansour

    [Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour is a Muslim lawyer and a black nationalist who made news in 2008 when it was revealed that he had been a patron of Barack Obama and had recommended the latter for admission to Harvard Law School in 1988.

    [..]

    A close personal adviser to Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, al-Mansour helped the pair establish the Black Panther Party but later broke with them when they entered coalitions with white radical groups.]

    This is all about divide and conquer for the powers that be. When the Bolshevik revolution happened the Communists came in after the fighting and took over. They want to do the same thing here. They want a class and race war. Its called Order out of Chaos and they are just itching to declare marshal law and send in UN troops that are already here in the US and have been for years now conducting exercises. They put 0bmama in power to divide this nation and he has done a bang up job for them. Just look at the hatred and Chaos created polarizing the right from the left. It might be best to save your ammo until the real enemy is marching down our streets.
