Democrat Propagandist Ken Burns Reminds Us Of How Self-Absorbed Liberals Really Are

Leave a comment

This is from Western Journalism.

Ken is a good documentary maker, but his grip on reality is nonexistent.

So he needs to STFU and make his documentaries.

Burns and people like him are eager to convince graduating minority students that their world is essentially the same as the one their slave ancestors lived in.

 

Recently, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns was the commencement speaker at a college graduation. As he spoke, he reminded us that liberals are always angry and dissatisfied with America and never pass up a chance to say so.

Here are some random thoughts about his speech.

Among other subjects in a predictable assortment of tripe, Burns essentially apologized for being white as he stood with a smug, self-assured look while hitting his applause lines. His apology represents a favorite liberal ploy of giving away something that they don’t own. My right to apologize or not apologize for something is mine and mine alone.

He insisted that “Black lives matter” while not whispering a word about the majority of black murder victims dying at the hands of other blacks. The make-up of Burns’ audience was revealed by the huge drop off in applause when Burns followed up with “all lives matter.” The brothers and sisters don’t want to hear that.

He used a familiar, liberal line about how “Almost weekly, a black man is killed by the police,” without including a word about the circumstances. He also failed to mention the fact that blacks kill dozens more blacks than are killed by cops. He said nothing about the savagery that is visited upon blacks by other blacks who belong in prison as he bemoaned the number of black men in prison. He said nothing about the fact that his hometown in New Hampshire is less than 3% black–and hundreds of miles from the nearest black ghetto.

Burns referenced the Civil War and told his student audience that he was drafting them into the “Union Army.” He didn’t mention the fact that the Union Army had to free the great-grandparents of his audience at gunpoint from the Democrats who ran the plantations then and still run them today.

He alluded to “plantations” and “company stores” still around today, but never mentioned that it is Democrats, his Party, who hold blacks as captives in nightmarish lives and lie to them about who is responsible for their misery.

He had nothing good to say about America and chose to hold the hands of his minority audience, cautioning about the world outside of family and school being scary.

Burns typifies what is wrong with the Left. They have no understanding of actual human nature and are determined to see the world as they want it to be rather than as it is.

Burns and people like him are eager to convince graduating minority students that their world is essentially the same as the one their slave ancestors lived in. Such is the reason that Burns and fellow race hustlers are the problem, not the solution.

Obama Omits “Under God” From Gettysburg Address

1 Comment

This is from Breitbarts Big Journalism.

I defy anyone to say Obama is not anti Christian.

Like all Socialists Obama hates Christians and all

they stand for.

 

Washington DC talk show host Chris Plante reported today that Barack Obama omitted the words “under God” from the Gettysburg Address when reciting the great speech for a Ken Burns documentary.

Burns had filmed all living presidents as well as various Hollywood personalities and luminaries to pay homage to the speech which was delivered by Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, today.

Plante broke the story on Washington DC talk radio station WMAL on his mid-morning program, “The Chris Plante Show.”

WMAL reports:

Curiously enough, in his version of the speech, President Barack Obama’s delivery contained an omission – in a line that every other celebrity delivered as “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom,” the President left out the words “under God.”

UPDATE: A text box now appears on the Ken Burns website www.learntheaddress.org which states: “Did you know there are five versions of the Gettysburg Address? We asked President Obama to read the first, the Nicolay Version.”  A cached version of the same webpage from several days ago shows no such reference.

The video of Obama’s rendition of the speech can be seen below. It is unlisted (for now) on the Ken Burns YouTube page.

This is from Godfather Politics.

The charge of racism has lost its meaning.

The left sees a racist behind every tree and under every tree.

The left is like the boy who cried wolf no one takes them serious any more.

 

love white meat, and if you love white meat, you’re most likely reacting to some inner anti-dark worldview, because, according to Ron Rosenbaum at Slate, “Dark meat represents slime and viscosity. Dark meat embodies all the menace of dissolution into the nothingness that is the slimy ground of being itself!” What he’s trying to say, if you like white (white meat and white bread), you’re not right. Rosenbaum’s high brow but sad piece is the end-point of how liberals think these days. They find a narrative that resonates with their constituency groups and blast its sound 24/7 from the highest media outposts. The sad thing is, it works.

When you can’t win an argument by challenging someone’s operating assumptions or marshalling of the facts, pull the ad hominem card. To argue ad hominem (“against the man”) means to attack the person making the argument instead of the argument itself. Ad hominem reasoning is an informal fallacy of irrelevance. A person making an argument can hold to horrible opinions and live a scandalously immoral life but still make a valid and sound case for or against a position. That is, he can like white meat and white bread and not be a racist.

Usually ad hominem arguments are arguments of last resort when logic and facts are not on the attacker’s side.

The attacks made against someone can be either true or false. The goal is to delegitimize an argument by calling into question the character of the person making the argument or manufacturing a charge in order to obscure the truth or falsity of an argument. If you’re a white-meat eater, there are really dark thoughts in your soul (if you even have one).

Liberals are skillful in the use of the ad hominem attack. “How can we take this man’s criticism seriously when it’s obvious that he’s a racist? Look how white he is!” It doesn’t matter if the charge is true; the goal is to divert attention away from the weakness of the argument being made by the person who makes the ad hominem allegation.

Throughout the 2012 presidential campaign, any criticism of President Obama’s policy was said to be wrapped up in a thin veneer of racism. A similar tactic was employed when conservatives objected to using tax payers’ money to pay for contraceptives. This was seen as a “war on women.” We’ve seen the combination of the racism and war on women charges when Republicans wanted to question Susan Rice, the current Ambassador to the United Nations, and the way she explained the Benghazi attacks. Sure enough, even to question anything she said or did was anti-woman and racist. What else could it be?

Now Ken Burns has joined the “it-must-be-about-racism” crowd. Burns is best known, and maybe only known, for his many documentaries. He first gained notoriety for his documentary The Civil War (1990), and then went on to direct and produce documentaries on baseball (1994), jazz (2001), the national parks (2009), war (2011), and the dust bowl.

While appearing on a Meet the Press panel to discuss Steven Spielberg’s new film LincolnBurns asked the guests, “Do you think we’d have a secession movement in Texas and in other places … if this president wasn’t African American?” Secession + white meat + white bread = racism. The math is easy when you know how to do it. Who knows what Rosenbaum would think if you sleep on white sheets.

If it’s always been about racism, then why wasn’t there a call for secession after Obama won in 2008?

Burns even brought up the Tea Party in his racism charge. Why did the Tea Party get behind Ted Cruz, who is Hispanic, in his Senate race in Texas if the Tea Party is all about “vitriol” and “racism”? There were Republicans Mia Love in Utah and Allen West in Florida, both black, that Democrats would not vote for.

It’s the Democrats who keep making race an issue. They are the ones who have to drag it into every conversation. The reason for their preoccupation with race is that they do not want to talk about the issues.
