Lies, damn lies, and TV documentaries
First the History Channel aired a "documentary" version of Howard Zinn's fake history of the United States (the one that begins with the claim that 12 million native Americans were killed in the Indian wars). Now Oliver Stone and a marxist professor from American University have created a ten part "history" of America and the world since World War 2. Showtime, owned by CBS, thought this was worth airing. At a press conference to promote the series, Stone revealed that Hitler and Stalin were misunderstood.
Ron Radosh of PJ Media has been one of the few journalists to cover this appalling new way for Americans to unlearn their history.
The Obama campaign/media smear machine has been fully revved up. First there was Bain,the corporate raider, then Bain the jobs killer, then Bain the outsourcer. Now it is Romney, the money shelterer. Greg Sargent of the Washington Post seem to be in the middle of many of these stories as they are mainstreamed.
The Jew haters who dominate the Presbyterian Church (USA), now want to divest from companies that help provide cell phones in israel, and technology for the Israeli Navy.
I have always believed the outreach conducted by Jewish organizations with the Presbyterian Church was a colossal waste of time. Would these organizations negotiate with the Klan? Why is anti-Semitism in one any different than in the other? With all the rotten places on earth, why is Israel, the only Jewish majority state in the world, the one nation that has become an obsession for the Presbyterian Church? I wonder. Maybe Jews should stop being afraid to call a spade a spade and shame the Church leaders, rather than beg for moderation.
