Where is it that we get our information from?
Who is it that points the telescope for us, telling us what to look at, what we should know?
(. . . . .)
I’m glad I didn’t post here all that I wrote this morning (and yesterday). I had just spent many hours watching the developing story of the sniper-assassin in Dallas who shot into policemen who were protecting Black Lives Matter people – five, now, having been killed – and I was full of too many thoughts.
But just one (thought) answers the question that one official asked the television cameras last night. He asked,“Why are we becoming such a divided nation?”
The shooter gives us the answer: He spoke words of “cops” killing Black men; of “cops” being racist; of being victimized by Whites and he doesn’t want to “take it anymore; of it being time to kill whites, “cops” specifically. The words attributed to him towards the end are the very same words and phrases that I’ve been hearing all year on the TV entertainment-news media, and recently, much more frequently.
The media constantly interviews and reports and showcases those radical Black-racist views that give expression to violent racism against White people. Of course their words arouse the audience and makes them emotionally willing to come back to that “news” outlet for more.
( For the spider-bots: Personally, a disclaimer here, I reject the use of violence against anyone as a means to solve problems. I’m merely observing.)

Where do you get your viewpoints from? Usually we get our viewpoints and attitudes from what we hear,** from what the people around us are saying (choose your friends wisely) ***, or from the words we hear broadcast out to us on the entertainment-news media (television, radio, movies, and music).
What we have heard up to this shooting in Dallas is an incitement to violence. Although outwardly we reject violence, inwardly, subconsciously, it’s difficult to resist the attitude that we hear all around us.
We call this Incitement. An incitement to violence. Even if we hear about it in the context of “tsk, tsk, we shouldn’t act like that,” we still hear it – and what we choose to hear is often what we begin to identify with.
TWO ‘DO-YOU-KNOWs” —
(1) Do you know who this is?
Crazy eyes, nicht war? Maybe this will help:
Yes, that’s Charles Manson. a thrown-away, abused little boy who slept in the gutters at age 9; and who grew up with hatred, revenge, and violent ideas in his heart. He preached something called Helter-Skelter, made popular by the occult-driven music group called the Beetles.
Helter-Skelter meant a society that is completely broken down and is in the throes of a violent civil war, races against races, poor against rich, region against region, etc. It wasn’t happening fast enough for Charles Manson, so he and his little band of drugged-up outlaws went on a murderous rampage one day (two days) in order to jump-start Helter-Skelter.
This is a curious, almost “quaint” bit of history from America’s Hippy Days, when the Sixty-Eighters rose to prominence in the entertainment-news media.
But these Sixty-Eighters, with civil war and revolutionary ideas in their thoughts, were not limited to weird Charles Manson cults. Their grandchildren think it’s funny to wear Charlie Manson hero t-shirts.
But today the civil war promoters more often wear suits, expensive suits.
(2 ) Do you know who this is?
We Americans had better know who this is. He is Saul Alinski, who along with radicals like Professor Cloward and Professor Pivens taught today’s radicals everything they need to know in order to be triumphant in transforming America, slowly, progressively, into their own image.
Alinski’s book is a blueprint, faithfully and successfully followed by the Progressive-Leftists in our own nation.
These people named above were the mentors of such men as:
. . . this one, the triumphant one who was given the new name of “Barack Hussein” in order to appeal to radicalized Black groups, such as Jeremiah Wright, a “reverend” in Chicago who helped Barry Sotoero to feel comfortable “acting like a Christian” while publicly denying his Muslim roots.
(Fact check, if you’re unaware: the only school records we have of this man show him as a Malaysian citizen and of the Muslim religion. Whatever. Whatever: he didn’t have the same upbringing as American citizens. Please don’t include the booze-filled, drug-filled, sex-filled high school years in Hawaii. Must we continue to deny the truth? ) ****
These men were also mentors and teachers who taught such women as this:
. . . .women, “Progressives,” too can be used to rule over a transformed America – after the civil war. From this woman’s lips, after the Dallas shooting of targeted white policemen came the sentiment that White people need to learn and to change. *****
“Them thar’s fightin’ words,” as Americans used to say.
Them thar words indicate that Helter-Skelter has not left the minds of these ageing Sixty-Eighters and their unsuspecting young followers. (Also called, by Vladmir Lenin, “the useful idiots.”)
American citizens don’t want change-by-revolution or by civil war. We want to live by our Constitution which directs us to laws that apply equally to all citizens, and a society in which difficulties, flaws, and weaknesses in our system are worked out peacefully by Americans without a hidden agenda.
Eventually, all citizens are equal under the law. (If you look at recent committee hearings, FBI proceedings, and such exercises such as those, you will see how far we’ve strayed from “equal” before the law.)
We must be very discerning about what we are hearing from the various media sources. Is it true? Is it reasonable? Is it of any lasting value? Is it helpful? What do we know and how do we come by that knowledge?
About the “cops” killing people issue, study after study show that twice as many White men are shot to death by policemen as Black men. For my foreign readers, yes, “bad cops” are prosecuted – and jailed. We don’t need a civil uprising of one segment of society to “transform” our nation into some extreme-leftist attempt at a Utopia.
(Which, to save more ‘stars’ — Utopia means: No Place. Intelligent people know that a Utopia doesn’t exist. )

***** If you care enough: In interviews reported by mainstream media as well as Internet reporting sites, she is quoted and video’d as saying:
“Look, I don’t believe you change hearts,” Clinton shot back. “I believe you change laws, you change allocation of resources, you change the way systems operate. You’re not going to change every heart. You’re not.”
To a Progressive/socialist/revolutionary/etc. individual people are simply cyphers, economic units to be utilized and managed. That’s you, my dear readers. Just an economic unit to be factored into political action. You don’t have a brain; you don’t have a heart to care about “things that really matter.”
At least, not enough of you that matters in order to Transform America.
