Two nights ago I had dinner with a few of my friends from Bergen County in New Jersey were I used to work. Most of them follow the Democratic Party line of thinking, but we have all decried that “we will agree to disagree” without any impact on our friendship. Many who read me think that I am completely one-sided in my views and don’t really think about all the issues and how we have evolved to where we are today. I have tried to educate by writing of my experiences, my education, my research and mostly my upbringing. I was brought up in a hardworking Italian family in yes, Brooklyn, New York. My father was Polish and my mother Italian. I know my Polish family who mostly live in Massachusetts to be hardworking people as well. I have a great family in Alabama as well as the result of one of my Polish aunts marrying a soldier from Ozark, Alabama. Since my mother and father were divorced when I was 5 years old, right after the war, I lived with my mother, aunts and uncles and cousins who were more like brothers and sisters to me. Everybody worked to sustain the family and my mother worked the hardest of all on a sewing machine in a factory on the corner that made men’s pants. No entitlements, no freebies, nothing but hard work through thick and thin, illness, injury or any other malady. We belonged to St. Finbar’s Church where I was an Altar Boy. This is all I have known. At this dinner, some things became painfully obvious to me.
I think my friends sometimes think that I am a political nut who is set in his ways and beyond objective thinking. My curse is that I am probably the opposite in that I listen and think about everything that I hear and then I process it and come to a conclusion. Sometimes, I will research what I have heard always trying to get it right and back it up with facts. Some of the things my friends said to me only prove what I have been saying all along. They have said things to me like “the world is changing” and “times have changed” or we are moving to “globalization”. After hearing these opinions, I wanted to shout out; it is changing because people of influence and money WANT IT TO CHANGE. In my first Rudy Rant, I wrote “These words will forever be imbedded in my mind, “you take over the media, and you control the people’s minds.” That is how Hitler, Mussolini, and many other Dictators had taken over countries. This thought would have a tremendous influence on my thinking in the future.” I joined the United States Navy despite the fact that I could have had 4F deferments due to surgery on my knee from football and seriously flat feet. In fact, I had to get a Medical waiver in order to enlist. I did it because I love this country and everything it used to stand for. I was always proud when I wore that uniform. This was in the 1960’s during the Vietnam era although my time was spent mostly in the Mediterranean with the 6th Fleet and then with the Naval Investigative Service. In my opinion, that is when the great movement to the Left started to take place. Anti-war movements were started by foreign backed subversive groups and our military were spit on and humiliated by the LEFT. I believe that many European countries were jealous of our success and secretly would love to destroy us. I think the European Union was formed for that reason and Great Britain finally realized the folly in that creation. I know that some in their infinite wisdom thought the prevention of the spread of Communism was the way to go and if you were in the military, you were bound by the words “support and defend the Constitution” and “all lawful orders by those over me.” In short, we did our jobs to defend every American’s right to free speech. In retrospect, Vietnam may not have been a good idea, although I understood the motivation behind it. Many on the Left went to other countries to avoid doing their duty for their country. Much of this influence came from Leftist organizations as I have previously stated like the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Communist Party, USA and others. The fact of the matter is that the SDS wanted anything but a Democratic Society. They wanted to change our government to “control” the people by denying them their right to free speech, ie; the new Political Correctness. Think about it folks, how many political correctness issues come up daily? You never know who is offended or how many are offended, you only know that “somebody” is offended. The Left Wing mainstream media seems to be the only ones offended. Add to this the elitists in our education system many of which have emanated from the likes of SDS and other Left Wing political groups, and you have a whole corps of Left Wing influence gradually teaching, writing and influencing our daily way of life to promote an agenda. The bottom line, it is “PROPAGANDA.” The definition of propaganda is: information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view. Biased or misleading nature. Do you freaking get it yet? If you are brought up and educated in this environment it is only normal to expect to believe the daily propaganda that is being presented to you. Little by little, the media outlets were being bought up by Left Wing zealots like George Soros so that 90% of the media outlets are Left Wing. “You control the people’s minds and you control the people.” That is how we have gotten so many otherwise intelligent, patriotic people to move to the left. They tell you that you have to take care of the people “in need.” They tell you about all the “poor” illegals who although they break your laws, you have to be compassionate. They appeal to the good nature of the American people and if your job comes from a Democratic Party source like a local government; you buy the “propaganda” hook, line and sinker. The evolution is there for everybody to see if you are willing to take the time to research an opposing view, but most on the Left think there way is the only way. I have another Left Wing Democrat friend who swears that she believes in Capitalism since her family was small business owners when she was young. I said to her that everything on the Democratic Party agenda is anti-Capitalism such as: heavy regulation, heavy taxation and in the case of the healthcare system is headed for “government control.” My friends, one in particular thinks this is good. Are you freaking kidding me? What governmental agency has ever done a better job than private enterprise? It also opens the door for more corruption like the Michele Obama girlfriend getting the $600 million contract for the Obamacare software. It could have been done for $20 million according to experts. If you are told something long and hard enough, sooner or later, you will start to believe it.
Definition of brainwashing
1 : a forcible indoctrination to induce someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes and to accept contrasting regimented ideas
- 2 : persuasion by propaganda or salesmanship
Here is the Merriam Webster definition of brainwashing. Now think back to the evolution of the movement to the Left. Look at the degradation of religion, the family unit and the fact that anyone defends “Traditionalism” is some sort of freak. Hell, I am probably the “Freak in Chief” because I defend all the institutions represented by our past and our culture. What is wrong with a belief in something greater than oneself? All of a sudden, atheism and agnosticism are the new religions. I am proud to be Italian and Polish. I love and support my family because they are my family. I am proud to have served in the United States Navy. Many educated people who grew up in this so-called “changing times” have been indoctrinated to the Left Wing propaganda and brainwashing and do not even realize it. They legitimately try to do some good and are brainwashed into doing even more, mostly to satisfy a political agenda or the agenda induced feeling of guilt. That is how Barack Obama who never managed anything got elected to the Presidency. The Environmentalists are another product of brainwashing as is climate change. All these issues make it harder to manage a family and cost more to live due to surcharges on every part of our lives to satisfy the huge corruption in our Establishment political system and the many entitlement programs used to get votes. Many traditionalists like me simply did not buy the propaganda. I have had the added education through my Intelligence training to recognize it for what it is worth and deny it outwardly. Many brainwashed Democrats will deny my explanation and my research of the facts and the evolution of the movement to the Left. Look at all the agenda items since Ronald Reagan was President. He refused to sign the Equal Rights Amendments because he felt like I do that the groups demanding “extra’ rights under the law were simply trying to get extra recognition for their cause. The laws protecting these groups were already in place. The Democratic Party pandered to all of these groups ostensibly to get VOTES. Again, the evolution and the progression are all written in history, but I would guess that my Democratic Party friends, one of which is a Doctor of Psychology would vehemently deny that he was either brainwashed or propagandized in his lifetime. Unfortunately, the denial only helps to move the Left further to the Left. The sad part of all of this is that Nationalism, Patriotism and the American way of life with the family unit, the religion or better yet a belief in a greater being which was recognized and included in our Constitution by our Founding Fathers, is being overshadowed by entitlements, political correctness and a move to the European way of life which has trailed ours since the inception of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Why in God’s name would we want to be like Europe? Why in God’s name would we want to be globalized? The United States is known for its exceptionalism. Barack Obama tried to deny that and apologized for anything and everything. The fact of the matter is that we are exceptional and we should be the leaders in the world, not the followers as he would suggest. We should bring back prosperity through American ingenuity and the industrial might we created so many years ago. I think this election is one of if not the most important elections in our lifetimes. We need to purge the establishment politicians from the government and elect representatives that truly represent the people. I do not think that Hillary Clinton is that person. She is evil, corrupt and an egotist who just wants the Presidency for her place in history. She knows nothing about getting this country back to its former greatness. I think that Donald Trump is the only answer right now. I have to hope that he will surround himself with people like Condoleezza Rice, Larry Kutlow, Mark Levin, Ben Carson and many others that have the talent to bring back the American Dream. Think about it folks, you may never have this chance again. To my Democratic Party friends, I know you will brush my explanation off as just so many words, but I hope you care enough about America to think about what I have written and look back in history to see what has really happened. God Bless America!!!JM
