A few months ago, I came across an insidious piece of Political Propaganda. And it is one that is or will be unnoticed by most. Not unnoticed completely. Just unnoticed for what it is. I will explain.
The Look – It is a Newspaper
The Title – The Pennsylvania Independent – Eastern Pennsylvania Edition
The Publisher – The American Independent (from Washington, DC
Where did it come from – The mail
Now Let’s think real hard. No one reads Newspapers anymore. At least I do not.
I stopped getting the local rag years ago. It is The Reading Eagle. Their website requires a subscription. The news they report was always center left (as with most newspapers). But worse, they NEVER reported anything of value outside of Eastern Pennsylvania.
If I wanted to find out what was going on in the world, I had to buy other Papers. There is the Philadelphia Enquirer – but it’s bias is worse than the Eagle. I could often find the New York Times. But I hated that. I would enjoy the Wall Street Journal, but the subscription was too expensive and WSJ is an investment in time that I just do not have.
Thanks for Internet News.
Of the many things that the Internet has brought to the world, access to information has been one of the greatest values. It allowed me to wean myself of newsprint. And even more, become more informed about what is happening around the world. Not perfect be any means. But certainly more accessible.
As a result of accessibility, it also created a level of transparency that was unknown before. The lies and half-truths in the mainstream media could be challenged. Is there bias? YES EVERYWHERE. But it is easier to pick it up when you can look at 2 or 5 articles on different sites and discern more about an event than one source would report.
Back to The Pennsylvania Independent
What the hell is an “Independent?” I like to say that it is kind of a smear name used by the two dominant parties in the United States (Democrats and Republicans) on anyone they cannot rely on for a vote. And this exists mostly because of the 2-party system that is so ingrained in the culture of our politics.
It is funny, but this is very much a result of the Hegelian Dialectic – pushing all narratives toward a choice between only 2 answers. This debate style has been heavily pushed by Marx and the political Left since the mid 1800’s. It allowed them to steer discussions toward their conclusion.
Example: We will use Race as one of my favorite examples. The present argument from the left is:
Racist or Anti-Racist
This is a perfect Marxist argument. You are either a Racist or an Anti-Racist. The problem becomes simple. No one wants to be defined as Racist it is the most evil and vile slur (outside of rapist or pedophile). Therefore, in order to enter the argument with a leftist, you must identify as an ANTI-RACIST. The Problem with that is, that the definition of anti-racist requires that you agree with the Leftist on pretty much everything. ANY time you disagree with them, their argument allws them to SLUR you with the Racist moniker.
You enter into their argument and you are a loser from the first word, whether you agree with them or not.
This is where the name INDEPENDENT becomes an issue. The term is a tool of the factions. These are people who may agree with them on some thigs and disagree on others. Let’s face it. If you pick one party or the other, they carry baggage that not everyone can agree with. If you choose to vote for one, you are not voting for your beliefs. You are voting for the package.
The word “independent” itself is one that is respected and revered here in the United States. We think of ourselves and Independent people We celebrate Independence day. We fight vehemently to the right to think any way we please. It is part of our heritage.
The Pennsylvania Independent is ANYTHING BUT THAT.
First, it is published by “The American Independent” in Washington, DC. I will state their specific definition:
The American Independent, formerly known as Blue Nation Review or Shareblue Media, is an American liberal news website. The American Independent’s monthly reach is reported to be 140 million across platforms.
So The Pennsylvania Independent Newspaper is ANYTHING BUT INDEPENDENT! It is produced by a left-wing thinktank in Washington DC. Their job is to affect public opinion is support of the Democrat Party. But call themselves “Independent.”
The Paper Itself and Why it is Insidious
I have received and saved three of these yellow rags. And I will explain why they are insidious. They follow a very specific format. 5-6 articles. 2 will be specific propaganda pieces praising the work of The Democrat President (Brandon) and Governor Tom Wolf. The other 3 articles are local news with local flavor (I think that one of the articles was about the truck crash with medical waste monkeys I wrote about a few months back).
In all it seems like a feel good local newspaper. But it is really just another piece of junk mail. They might as well be selling Sham-Wow or Blue-Blocker sunglasses or a flyer for used cars. That is all it is.
But it looks like legitimate news. Only by discernment do you see the ruse. And Anyone who personally sees themselves a as “Independent” may pick it up and look to see what other “Independents” are thinking. And when they do, they get a mouthful of fish wrappings designed to make them vote democrat.
PAY ATTENTION. Every day. To everything you see.
