A comment I made, that included the China Digital Times and their weekly list of stories suppressed by the Chinese Ministry of Truth, was moderated and removed last week from a newspaper. Not once but twice. As a result, I am banned and can no longer post. No, not from a socialist or communist newspaper, but from a very ordinary newspaper. Or so I thought. As of this week the majority of the comments are from paid Chinese posters about how the US has faked the death of OBL. The other commenters follow along like mice hearing their Pied Piper. And so the creeping of communism, and with it all the suppression of anything of which it does not approve, has expanded from an oozing trickle to a rising tide. When the waves become a deluge it will of course be too late.
I wonder what the people who took the money offered by the Chinese (in exchange for their freedom) will think- will they rejoice in the suppression, will they bear guilt for falling prey, or will they be elated and join the ranks of the repressive? What of the many who sit by and watch the debacle unfold before their very eyes… and say nothing and do nothing… except to buy more products manufactured by the regime which serves to give the communist government even more profits which they use to spread that power. And now Iran is building a rocket launching site in Venezuela? Surely with the help of China.
You would think by now that we would know better than to empower the forces that seek to control us. Why don’t these manufacturing concerns, such as Apple, conduct their business in countries that are democratic, countries which are friends to our belief in freedom and equality? Why do business with a country who pursues values opposite to ours?
There are thousands, tens of thousands, who knows- maybe it’s millions of people who believe that the US orchestrated the attacks of 9-11 and now we have large numbers who believe that OBL has NOT been killed, they believe that was staged as well; plus the equally huge numbers who believe US is the Evil Empire, not China. Hmmmm. Obviously people don’t conjure up these ideas themselves. They have to be taught. These ideas and those who spread them they have to be supported, otherwise they’d be powerless. We lost a generation in the fight to preserve democracy and freedom only to lose the next entire generation to the voodoo of moral relativism, and now, another generation is falling to the spell of communist propaganda. Now what?
All this Marxist Theology, Communism, Liberation Theology, Progressivism, -call it what you will, all this repressive propaganda has filled our sewers and now runs freely down our streets.
I really, really, really do not know how this country is going to stay a democracy when so many work so hard at making “fuzzy” anything that confronts evil. I know evil when I see it, hear it, read it. Perhaps that’s why I’m willing to stand up, be counted, be heard and be banned for it. And if banned, protest it. Loudly. Legally. Morally.
