What We Were Told
We were told
By Ronin, 15 Jan 13
We were told that we are no longer a Christian nation. God was not welcomed in our schools, public places and should be limited even in our homes.
We were told that all religions should be considered as equal. Even islam was equal to Christianity despite the fact that 80 percent of the 26 million Christians murdered in the last century were murdered by followers of Mohamed.
We were told that questioning islamic policies was wrong, we have no right to judge, discuss, question or show outrage when the followers of seventh century savages interacted with the modern world.
We were told the Christians were not persecuted but did persecute others by refusing to see the benefits of aborting millions of children just because their parents were poor, spoke differently and a darker skin shade. The refusal to support the global homosexual agenda was further proof the Christians were out of control. The rest of the world’s religions were much more equal and more tolerant, progressive and free thinking.
We were told that prayer was not only unnecessary but infringed on the rights of others and was an abuse of parental authority if we compelled our children to practice it.
We were told that our children needed to be educated to understand that our personal goals, beliefs and values were archaic, that our children should be progressive, free thinkers, social activists and citizens not of the United States but of the world. Simple patriotism was old fashioned, unneeded and disloyal.
We were told what to eat and how to eat it and in what quantities. Additives, processing and other concerns were already handled. It was ok to limit gardens, seeds; the impact on the planet outweighed the need to be self-reliant. Why did we need to worry about our sources of food, sources which were already under control?
We were told that limiting our own impact on the planet may have to include reductions on output, productivity and limit our nation’s ability to use it natural resources. We should ignore those that pointed out that all of humanity could fit in the state of Texas, the world was overcrowded, suffering and it was our fault. Globally resources are stretched well past the breaking point.
We were told that man controlled the weather but apparently the wrong men. The planet could be saved with more restrictions and through the wisdom of different men. Men capable and knowledgeable enough to protect those people with the wisdom to listen and not fill their minds with the problems of science, research and facts.
We were told that national leaders even those with questionable morals, suspicious backgrounds, previous associations with criminals, activists and those that refuse to be limited by laws, policies and limitations are above reproach.
We were told that science had already solved the mysteries of evolution, weather and social sciences necessary to build one huge happy global family. Questioning such things doomed doubting Thomas to public ridicule and scorn, come to think about it, that is what happened to the original doubting Thomas but I digress.
We were told what medications to take and our health concerns could be surrendered to the authorities. Even skipping a simple flu shot could get you fired or punished. No need to worry about health, the government has it all under control.
We were told that supporting every conflict on the planet was good foreign policy; it protected our people and helped humanity. The hundreds of millions of the worlds oppressed, hungry and desperate would grow to see our nation as saviors. Who needs one savior when the United States was available? We were told that oppressive governments with established patterns horrific abuses against their own citizens were our allies and needed our support. The abuses are all necessary to help control evil men with plans for even worse abuses from taking control and really mucking things up.
We were told that the highest level of patriotism was blind support of 525 men and women, more than capable of protecting, thinking for and caring for millions of people who unfortunately did not have their wisdom and failed to support all their policies and future plans. Good citizens learned and are unthinking, unquestioning, what we need is obedience.
We were told by the world’s biggest supplier of weapons that even as our nation armed violent groups, gangs, criminals and most of the world’s violent islamic sects that we the American people did not need guns, especially to protect our families.
We were told on every pro-conservative and pro-gun board that you can’t fight a government with advanced weapons and should not try. Even talking about such nonsense as passive and active resistance, civil disobedience and refusal to register all privately owned weapons was disloyal and criminal. The president will announce a plan for all your weapons and you must obey.
I could list more examples of things that I have noticed circulating through what used to be a free press. These few common themes and messages have resonated with large segments of society. A large amount of someone’s money was used to push these concepts. What amazed me was not the attempt to control us but the stupidity of those that believe it is working.
I publically admit that all of the things that I listed above have failed to change my mind or even have the slightest influence on my beliefs, goals or future plans.
