Liberalism Needs Hoaxes…

Good article in the Washington Free Beacon today outlining the need of false narratives to advance an ideology that doesn’t exist in reality. This is essentially something we’ve talked about extensively here, and when you follow the trail you find out “why” the Ryan Julison’s of the world need to create hoaxes.

Raiders Rams Football(Via Washington Free Beacon)  Talk about a dramatic entrance. When the St. Louis Rams took the field last Sunday, several teammates raised their hands, palms out. It was an act of solidarity with Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager killed last August in a struggle with a white police officer. Moments before his demise, it is said, Brown raised his hands and pleaded: “Don’t shoot.”

Since then “hands up, don’t shoot” has become the rallying cry of protesters and rioters furious that the officer, Darren Wilson, was not indicted by a grand jury. There is just one problem: It is not clear that Brown put his hands up. Nor is it certain that he said, “Don’t shoot.” On the contrary, the evidence released by the grand jury suggests that the fatal incident began when Brown assaulted Wilson.

Indeed, the foundations of the Brown story have been eroding from the moment a St. Louis television station broadcast security video from the convenience store where Michael Brown, prior to his fatal encounter, stole merchandise and assaulted a clerk. It was for example claimed that Brown was shot in the back. The evidence before the grand jury showed that he was not.

Is the movement to “de-militarize” the police that was sparked by Brown’s death therefore based on lies? “Those questions may never be answered,” says The New York Times, which campaigned for the indictment of Officer Wilson and sympathized with the violence and looting that has plagued Ferguson, Missouri, after the grand jury announced its decision.

Well, maybe those questions won’t be answered. What I do know is that the Times would be much more definitive and much more emphatic if the empirical data conformed even in the slightest to its preferred narrative, to its politicized storyline of pacific young black men gunned down needlessly by racist cops.

What I do know is that the sensational and electric assertions made by liberals to further their agenda, especially on issues of race and sex, have a habit of being untrue. And it is the recurrence of such factually suspect accounts that raises troubling questions about the relation of liberal myth to human reality. (The case of Eric Garner, in which there is video of the deadly engagement, is different and should not be conflated with the fable of Ferguson.)  read more

    Rape on campus:
    Rolling Stone’s published a totally fabricated story – at a “Frat Party”. There was no party, and it never happened. Typically, because the “Libs” (Washington Post) wanted to BELIEVE IT so much, they published all of it – with no serious checking. This is the same story as the, “Hand up – don’t shoot”, LIE.

    (The case of Eric Garner, in which there is video of the deadly engagement, is different and should not be conflated with the fable of Ferguson.)

    Exactly, The idea of conflating these 2 events is absurd, since there’s nothing in common between the actual events other than that the decedents are both black. Brown obviously attacked Wilson, while Garner merely resisted arrest. And, while Garner’s death is clearly tragic, Officer Daniel Pantaleo never intended to utilize deadly force and Garner’s death is more likely due to the apparent lack of medical care that followed the “take down”.

    But, after being completely humiliated by the facts of both the Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown cases, the BGI HAS to misdirect the public’s attention in the Garner case AND conflate it with Ferguson in order to maintain the level of fury necessary to perpetuate their momentum.

    Lately I have started seeing even the most successful black people declaring race is a problem that holds the black man back. Multi-million-dollar people declaring that racism held them back. Really? And Oprah? When will people stop buying into the fraud and lies? Fear of being called racist and wanting to prove we are not has its limits with me. And I’m not even going to cite “my black friend” nonsense either. Giving in doesn’t work. It only feeds the problem like welfare. It only proves to those who believe they are being wronged that they have been. Why else would we feel and act so guilty?

      White guilt? Not me. I am sick and tired of the race card being played. Their problems lie within their own culture and white people aren’t responsible for their problems.

  10. What bothers me isn’t so much the lies as the fact people believe them in spite of evidence to the contrary. An example: in class a few weeks ago, one student mentioned the Trayvon Martin case in her presentation and talked about how George Zimmerman “shot a little boy.” It sounded like she was saying Martin was a little child skipping to elementary school one sunny morning when some thug popped out of nowhere and shot him for no good reason. We here know at the Treehouse the reality is that Martin was seventeen – hardly a little boy – and slinking around a gated neighborhood, in the rain, at night, looking for all the world like someone who was up to no good, and that was before he assaulted Zimmerman and tried to beat man’s head into the sidewalk. That Martin was innocent and blameless was proven to be a lie, but the myth lives on, and people have bought into the myth.

    That’s what troubles me. Even when the lie is shown to false, people refuse to let go of it. As for the concept mentioned in the article that these people think their actions are for the “good of many” – didn’t Ayn Rand write something about that in one of her books? As I recall it was something like, “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” and the results weren’t pretty. Perhaps this is the same sort of idea discussed in the article?

    Facts no longer matter either in society or in science; all that matters is the narrative of those in power and how they want to change something to suit there wants need s or desires. The media as part of this cabal of deceit plays along in this game not realizing that the end result will be the destruction of the country for it is not possible for a multicultural country to exist — they always destroy themselves from within. Knowing that is something that most would not know since we do not teach history any more. Goggle Yugoslavia and Balkanization.

    They will keep pedaling the lies and inciting the riots to achieve their agenda. They want LE all across America to become federalized. They want to do away with Grand Juries. They want special prosecutors all of the time. They want to destroy law, order, and justice so they can destroy and take over America. They are looking at the BIG picture now.

    You may enjoy another column that discusses this topic. It’s called “Sick Political Theater” and it starts like this:

    “The events in Ferguson, Missouri are the latest example of sick political theater, carefully orchestrated to shape public policy. The theatrical productions are pure fiction, but are presented as fact. They are morality plays with heroes and villains and are intended to create strong emotions directed at a political objective. All of the elaborate productions are based on central lies. None would be possible without a complicit media to carry the script. ….”

    you know I just remembered a bible account the isrealites back in isaiahs day were so embolden to try to get around Gods laws and consqences of breaking their covenant with him they created what he termed a “refuge of a lie” to make themselves feel secure they fabricated alternative refuge by alliances with other nations using as today would be called treaties, they started to show they trusted in this refuge of a lie which Jehovah said was a illusion as if someone would lean on a reed and it pierces their hand or like a man dreaming he is drinking and eating food but wakes up empty. illusion. So they thought this lie would protect them from Jehovahs punishments (one of these punishments for persistance wickedness and refusal to turn around repent and get back inot a good relationship wiht God was that he would allow the nations round about take them into exile to humble them and show them the difference between his rulership over them and the oppression of the nations.) by getting involved with this refuge of a lie to stack their peace on they set themselves up for disaster. yes then the babylonians took them into exile their refuge of a lie (alliance with eygpt) proved ot be futile. so these people seem to be following the same path, creating alliances with powerful people in govenrment and corporations (and they with certain nations) creating this refuge of a lie, scattering the sheep to the hills and mountains (other organization or ideas and forms of worship) scattering the sheep fleecing them instead of sheperding them lovingly like God requires of religious and poltical sheperds.

    They are not hoaxes. They are intentionally selected. A seemingly obvious wrong is identified, but the circumstances are the real target. A cop shooting a minority is the face, the cover story, the selling point.

    What is being sold is the rest of the story: the Marxists want us everyday suburban middle class, who are the overwhelming bulk of the cultural hegemony, to believe the beliefs that go along with the specific.

    we have to give up on the common beliefs that sustain society. This will usher in more quickly the communist revolution.

    What do we have to believe?

    The media, despite contrary evidence.

    That law enforcement is bad.

    That our legal system is bad.

    That we are judgmental if we get upset by insolent Black people crossing the street obviously impeding traffic.

    We are judgmental and wrong if we get upset by a grown man walking around with his pants hanging off.

    We are supposed to judge ourselves as wrong when we get upset about petty theft by Blacks- we need to accept this.

    We are supposed to be upset with ourselves and our society if we believe marijuana users should get in any trouble.

    We are supposed to learn to judge ourselves as bigoted or whatever if we decide that MB had such bad behavior because he was not raised by his mom and dad in a nukelar family.

    We are not supposed to factor in the fact that MB had a legal record.

    Etc. Etc. By time it is done, you have no values to stick up for, and you self-censor any time you make some discrimination between good and bad.

    That is why the Marxists pick a TM or MB case, and not one like the young kid with the pellet gun shot by an obviously wrong, rogue cop – that is bad, but will never serve to weaken our morals and values.

    Our morals and values are what sustain civilized society, and they must be broken in order to have the revolution, and usher in the next evolution of society, the communist age.
