Ronald Reagan

It should come as no surprise that the left-wing entertainment industry would engage in political propaganda.  It is what they have always done.  During World War II, the industry, itself, referred to the one-sided war movies – showing Americans as the noble heroes and the German and Japanese people has heartless cretins – as propaganda movies.

While that propaganda was produced for good cause – to build public patriotism and support for the war effort –they were still, by definition, propaganda movies. They used all the techniques of propaganda to create motivational narratives as opposed to reflecting a balanced truth.

Propaganda is arguably the most important tool of dictators.

They can maintain support and simultaneously suppress opposition by control of what the general public sees and hears.  The purpose is to indoctrinate rather than educate – casting those who dare speak truth to power as the enemies of the state.

We have seen – and I have often written of – the shift of much of the American news media and entertainment industry away from journalistic standards and ethics and towards the presentation of left-wing political narratives that too often actually misrepresent the truth.

Showtime – the cable platform that bills itself as a premium movie channel – has proven itself to be a leader in outrageous propaganda – this time with a so-called four-part documentary on President Ronald Reagan. (Incidentally, whenever you see a documentary promoted on CNN or MSNBC, you can rest assured you will see propaganda.)

If you hoped to find a historic presentation on the Reagan presidency, the “teaser” for the series would have given you an indication of what was to come.  The entire purpose of the documentary was to convince the American public that the reputation of one of the most admired and successful presidents of the Twentieth Century – in history – was a carefully crafted “myth.”   The teaser portrayed First Lady Nancy Reagan as the power behind the throne.

The President was referred to as the real “Manchurian candidate.”  I mean, really?  If you could even believe that you are either hopelessly biased or utterly stupid – or both.  You would probably believe that Pope Francis is a stand-in for Adolph Hitler.

Ironically, one of Reagan’s primary accusers in this Inquisition-style presentation is his namesake son, Ronald Reagan Jr. – who has made political patricide his only claim to fame.  He failed in showbusiness as a dancer and later as a radio talk-show host for the defunct radical left Air America network.  Reagan Jr. refers to his dad as “a strange person to be President of the United States”—and that is one of the kinder comments.  He intimates that the President was a racist without actually saying so or producing any evidence.  It should be noted that junior’s “daddy dearest” portrayal of the President is at odds with the other Reagan children – who hold their father in the highest esteem.

In a past blog, I once wrote about Reagan, Jr.’s apparent psychologically-based hatred of his father.  I got an anonymous series of comments defending the younger Reagan.  It became apparent from the details that it was Junior, himself, who was responding.  When I called him out by name, the comments ceased.

Every propaganda technique –from the ominous music to the stitching together of out-of-context statements by the President and his supporters and the use of conservative haters seen regularly on CNN and MSNBC as “analysts” – were ruthlessly deployed in this so-called documentary.

How bad was the so-called “documentary”?

It was so bad that even MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough declared the Showtime presentation to be the worst and most dishonest documentary that HE HAD EVER SEEN —  and this from a guy who has produced more than his fair share of anti-Republican, anti-conservative propaganda.

It is almost beyond belief that a commercial movie channel could be so controlled by radical elements that they would even produce such a piece of trash for public consumption.  President Reagan, the First Lady and supporters of Reagan as portrayed on this small screen character assassination never existed.  They are fictional creations of a corrupt media.

The goal of the left is to defeat conservative candidates, to demonized conservatives in general and to re-write the past success of America in order to achieve permanent power.  And even more tragic, there is an audience of perhaps millions who may be so ill-informed and gullible as to believe the propaganda.

So, there ‘tis.
