CANADA: Gays Using “Hate Speech” Laws to Censor Opponents (Video Initially Removed by YouTube)

Posted by FactReal on May 24, 2012

SILENCING CONSERVATIVE VIEWS
Here is the video YouTube initially censored. Ironically, the video denounces censorship of opposing views — in this case of those opposing gay marriage and homosexuality.

The video exposes the real goal behind the so-called hate speech laws:

Other video source: Here.
Via Newsbusters:

Last week, YouTube – owned by Google, whose corporate motto used to be “Don’t Be Evil” — removed the video, which spotlights how gay rights extremists are using laws in Canada to censor those who disagree with their perspective. […]

The video created May 16 by [preacher and hard rock drummer Bradlee] Dean to accompany his weekly column published by WorldNet Daily and other news outlets, exposes facts about the hatred and oppression directed at conservative Christians and opponents of gay marriage in Canada by the radical Left toward people of faith, those who hold to traditional marriage.

Among the shocking examples presented of how gay-rights extremists are using hate speech laws to silence conservatives is a ruling by a Canadian official that Christian parents who home-school their children can not teach their children that homosexuality is a sin.

In Defense of Rush Limbaugh

Posted by FactReal on March 6, 2012

Free speech for Sandra Fluke and other leftists but not for Rush Limbaugh?
Rally for Rush:

Rush Limbaugh has discussed at length — at length — what Sandra Fluke and her statist cronies are up to. Yes, he used the words “slut” and “prostitute” — using the ludicrous to make his point. Ms. Fluke, in one of the most pathetic, shamelessly whining stories in recent memory, demands to be paid for her sex life because it costs $3,000 for three years of birth control while she’s at law school. She demands that a Catholic university violate its fundamental right to religious liberty so she can have others pay for her sex life. So Rush asked the farcical obvious about somebody who demands that someone else pay her for her apparent, self-admitted prolific sex life. He spent two solid days relating her greed for other people’s money and a lack of personal responsibility to the oldest of principles.

Right on cue, the blacklisting crowd came out of their Stalinist caves. Having driven Lou Dobbs from CNN, cut off Beck’s windpipe at Fox, severed Pat Buchanan from MSNBC, thus emboldened they have now set their sights on Rush.

Obama Launches Propaganda Brigade “Truth Team”

Posted by FactReal on February 14, 2012

OBAMA = THE GREAT DIVIDER

Mao Zedong loved his propaganda machine

ABC reported:
The Obama campaign is today beginning a new effort to enlist and educate at least 2 million supporters for a “grassroots communications team” they’re calling the Truth Team.

“The goal is to ensure that when Republicans attack President Obama’s record, grassroots supporters can take ownership of the campaign and share the facts with the undecided voters in their lives,” the campaign said in a statement.

The teams will be first launched in 13 “swing states,” including Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.

The rollout also includes a social media blitz, directing supporters to three new websites: KeepingHisWord.com, which highlights Obama’s record and “promises kept”; KeepingGOPHonest.com, which highlights GOP policy positions; and AttackWatch.com, which fact-checks claims made against Obama on the campaign trail.

“If the other guys are going to run a campaign based on misrepresenting the president’s record – and their own – we have two options: sit back and let these lies go unchallenged, or fight back with the truth,” deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in an email. “We’re fighting back.”

Cuba’s Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR)

Posted by FactReal on October 26, 2011

In the Age of Obama, we hear more about government seeking informants and snitches (i.e., Obama’s snitch website or Obama’s White House seeking email informants). This is nothing new. Big-government ideologues have historically created snitch brigades to control their citizens. Meet the CDRs.
Castro’s neighborhood snitch groups: The Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDRs)
Humberto Fontova explained what they are:
Snitching is essential to totalitarian regimes. Both Stalin’s and Castro’s Gulags were filled primarily by acting on tips from snitches. Such snitching has a snowball effect. The very fact that you’re snitching gives some people a (usually false) sense of protection from regime police because they’re assisting them. Then as more and more people get rounded up, more and more people feel threatened, so more and more of them snitch — more fear, more arrests; neighbor snitches against neighbor, cousin against cousin, even sons and daughters against parents. […]

In the mid-1990’s, the Catholic Human Rights group Pax Christi, headquartered in Belgium, visited Cuba and secretly conducted a study on the status of the CDR’s…

“Fear is the basic instrument of (Cuban) political control,” concludes the study. “There is one CDR for every 140 Cubans. The information at the State Security’s disposal can be used to threaten and intimidate anybody. There is no place to escape the tentacles of the State. Most ordinary Cubans reported that they remained intensely wary of CDR surveillance, even while conversing in their own homes.” These CDRs keep a file on every person in their beat (usually 2 city blocks in the cities) where they list all of the comings and goings, personal contacts, etc., in the hopes of detecting any revolutionary backsliding, which can be anything from a particularly snarky comment on a regime honcho or policy to playing hooky from the latest anti-imperialist rally in the Plaza de la Revolucion. The CDRs also supervise the issuing of the monthly food ration cards to all Castro’s subjects. “Food is a weapon” famously declared Stalin’s foreign minister, Maxim Litvinov.

With a little imagination almost everyone can visualize the Communist snitch-and-survive or snitch-and-reward process. At work, we’ve all seen that insufferable brownnoser who hopes to mitigate or camouflage his incompetence or laziness by sucking up to the boss. We’ve all seen that gossipy little backstabber, that busybody shrew get promoted over their betters. Somehow after every flush of “downsizing” many of these Eddie Haskells and Mrs Kravitzes keep bobbing back to the surface.

To some extent this is human/corporate nature. All organizations favor “team players.” In the private sector these kinks are eventually straightened and the brownnosing incompetents axed. Either that, or the company goes under. There are stockholders and customers to keep happy. But under Communism this swinishness is the very essence of the system. There is only a Maximum Leader to keep happy.

Obama Launches New Snitch Website

Posted by FactReal on September 14, 2011

OBAMA’S NEW ERA: MAKING A SPY OUT OF EVERY CITIZEN
The Hill reported yesterday that Obama’s reelection campaign manager, Jim Messina, sent a fundraising email to campaign supporters to announce the formation of AttackWatch.com “to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record” and to “hold our opposition accountable.”

The site will provide “a forum for you to report attacks and tools to fight back.”

TACTIC USED BY LEFTISTS
Obama could use this poster to promote his snitch website:
Cuba’s neighborhood snitch committees — known as CDR’s:
In the mid 1990’s the Catholic Human Rights group Pax Christi headquartered in Belgium, visited Cuba and (secretly) conducted a study on the status of the neighborhood snitch committees — known as CDR’s — that Chavez seemed to want replicated in Venezuela. Making a spy out of every citizen, instilling the fear that comes with the mutual-suspicion society, is essential to every dictatorship. Castro didn’t invent it: he merely copied contemporary examples from Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany.

“Fear is the basic instrument of (Cuban) political control,” concludes the study. “There is one CDR for every 140 Cubans. The information at the State Security’s disposal can be used to threaten and intimidate anybody. There is no place to escape the tentacles of the State. Most ordinary Cubans reported that they remained intensely wary of CDR surveillance, even while conversing in their own homes.”

These CDRs keep a file on every person in their beat (usually 2 city blocks in the cities) where they list all of his comings and goings, personal contacts, etc., in the hopes of detecting any revolutionary backsliding, which can be anything from a particularly snarky comment on a regime honcho or policy to playing hooky from the latest anti-imperialist rally in the Plaza de la Revolucion.
