    I'm not sure if that isn't satire. It is actually funny and spoken in a way that almost mocks the listener? It is sort of like saying you are so dumb that this nonsensical piece of video with its absurd connections and ridiculous juxtapositions proves how dumb you are if you believe what I am telling you. Yes, he must have invented the Internet because if you believe that, you can believe the stupidity and gross propaganda in the video. Very odd piece of agitprop.



    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." Joseph Goebbels

    “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over” Joseph Goebbels

    Liberation theology? Marxism? LT grew more out of the poor wondering about the political and social purposes of Christianity in a world they had little of.

    "The first Catholic congresses devoted to liberation theology were held in Bogota in March 1970 and July 1971. On the Protestant side, ISAL organized something similar in Buenos Aires the same years.

    Finally, in December 1971, Gustavo Gutiérrez published his seminal work, Teología de la liberación. In May Hugo Assmarm had conducted a symposium, "Oppression-Liberation: The Challenge to Christians," in Montevideo, and Leonardo Boff had published a series of articles under the title Jesus Cristo Libertador. The door was opened for the development of a theology from the periphery dealing with the concerns of this periphery, concerns that presented and still present an immense challenge to the evangelizing mission of the church."

    Is is really fair to lay all of the blame at Rove's feet? Joseph Goebbels did the groundwork; Rove just picked up where Goebbels left off.

    It's ironic that Alpha used a quote commonly attributed to Goebbels to slam midcan's post. Goebbels's actually made a similar quote for the purpose of falsely denouncing Churchill as a liar. It was a classic instance of projection, attributing your own sins to your enemies.

    I have alot of hope that a ethnocentric, Marxist will not become the next President of the United States.
