Time Marches On

One of the many ways that evil seeped into Europe in the 1920’s and 30’s was through the press; not so much what they did say, but for what they didn’t. Whether they irresponsibly chose to ignore the signs or simply didn’t believe that such horrors would bloom forth, we’ll never know. But we do know, aided by their duplicity, that millions died. They weren’t the only ones that let their guard down, but with circulations in the millions across the continent, they could’ve gotten the word out alot faster than any pony express running up and down the Rhine. Today, the media’s agenda is so transparent that most of the Americans I know don’t even bother reading newspapers or watching network news shows anymore. It has become so patently obvious that the news we’re fed now is so censored and filtered to fit a far-left, liberal agenda. As I’ve said before, history does repeat itself. And it is, right before our eyes.

A new website is now available – the MediaMythBusters wiki. (h/t Fausta ) It’s a collecting place for proven media falsehoods. Now that “untraditional media”, i.e. blogs, has it’s eye on the big boys, maybe they’ll tell the truth occationally.

Truth Through Scrutiny — When inaccurate information is reported in the news media, especially when it is reported on the wire services and gets repeated worldwide, it is difficult to “take back” the initial report and correct the record. With the rise of new media such as talk radio and blogs, traditional media has come under increased scrutiny and some stories that in past generations might have been left to stand, have been exposed as false. Those instances, which are often relegated to small print at the back of the newspaper, will be collected [there].

Photoshopping, mytical “facts”, questionable sources. Same song, different verse.

Blogs are being mysteriously disabled. Another form of censorship.

Even history is being rewritten to fit the libral agenda. Winston Churchill is no longer considered “significant” enough for British students to study. More “relevant” topics include global warming and substance abuse. The same BBC that fawned over Hilter while not giving Churchill enough air-time in the 1930’s just last week blatantly fabricated a “snit” between Queen Elizabeth and Annie Liebowitz, a photographer. Don’t mess with the Queen. The BBC has been a continous disgrace for decades.

[Nazi Colonel Vogel is torturing Henry to get answers]
Colonel Vogel: What does the diary tell you that it doesn’t tell us?
Professor Henry Jones: It tells me that goose-stepping morons like yourself should try reading books instead of burning them.

Where’s Dr Jones when we need him?

Like the Nazis, the new/old enemy understands that a disinformation campaign can be an asset, especially for those hungry for knowledge. Like heading down a one-way street, but the wrong way. After all – taqiya – it’s allowed to lie if it advances the kingdom of Islam.

When researched, it turns out that this theory was produced by clerics of the Wahhabi regime in Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood, as a plan to prevent Jihad and Jihadism from being depicted by the West and the international community as an illegal and therefore sanctioned activity. It was then forwarded to American- and Western-based interest groups to be spread within the Untied States, particularly within the defense and security apparatus. Such a deception further confuses U.S. national security perception of the enemy and plunges democracies back into the “black hole” of the 1990’s.

Despite repeated warnings, then and now, history looks to repeat itself. Siggy thoughtfully discussed the “new” Germany Monday

The past does not disappear. Certainly, the hurt and pain do not vanish from existence or history. However, those who ask forgiveness and those who grant forgiveness understand that those who caused them pain are no longer a part of their reality. There are new, better and elevated people that have taken their place.

The same truths apply to nations.

The Germany of today is not the Germany that sinned against the world and mankind in World War Two.

Germany took it upon itself to reflect and repent. The nation that was responsible for the Holocaust and the death of almost 50 million souls, is not now the same nation that it was. Free Germans took it upon themselves to self examine what it was that caused them to fall prey to the charisma of evil. After much painful reflection, they willingly accepted responsibility and the consequences of their actions. They assumed the necessary shame and did not try to place the blame for their own misdeeds and failures, elsewhere.

Germany has come a long way. She is still a nation that self examines, but she does not carry the burdens of the past. She remembers, of course, as she should and she is ever vigilant- but she is not the Germany of those dark days. Today’s Germany is a proud bastion of freedom. She is a nation that has grown and elevated herself. She doesn’t hide her well healed scars. The nation that Germany has become has no need to to do that. Her worth is determined by her actions of today, not by how well her scars can be hidden.

He also bemoans the fact that “feelings” have supplanted “facts” as news now.

There was a time when events shaped history. It was the ‘facts on the ground’ that would influence the future and help us understand the past. We might debate the meaning of it all and we were free to debate the events that triggered changes.

While scholars and historians will discuss Lincoln and the Civil War forever, or debate the real origins of World War One, it clear that ‘facts on the ground’ now play a lesser role than ever in determining history- or the future.

Now, feelings have entered the equation- so much so, that feelings have supplanted ‘facts on the ground’ and actual events as having primary influence.

Interesting lessons. Will it take another holocaustic nightmare to get America to do the same? As commenter JohnnyD said

So, if Rep. Ellison (D) thinks 9-11 was akin to the Reichstag fire, then wait until we have our version of the Night of the Long Knives. I just wonder who will be carrying the knives. And then there is Krystal Nacht. Who does he suppose will carry out that scenario? Hmmmm.
