In George Orwell’s book 1984, there exists something called the ministry of truth. I recently referenced this “fictional” ministry in regard to some emails I received.
First, I recently responded to the chain email going around regarding the “coincidences” involving Zucotti Park, where the OWS folks were camped. Here is a version of it:
Hey, this is great boys and girls! Imagine the odds of this happening.
Do you know the park in NYC that the Wall Street protesters are occupying? Zucotti Park.
Did you know this park is not owned by the city? It is owned by Brookfield Properties.
Who was just hired by Brookfield Properties as an attorney? Vice President Joe Biden’s son.
Who sits on the board of Brookfield Properties? Mayor Bloomberg’s live in girlfriend.
Now, boys and girls, guess what company just recieved some of the last of the Obama Stimulus $$$$$$$. Thaaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right, Brookfield Properties.
Isn’t life great boys and girls!
Hey, on a completely unrelated note, Wisconsin is shaping up to be the swing state in the 2012 presidential elections. Not Florida. Not Ohio. But Wisconsin.
Now, boys and girls, guess who owns the company that will be tabulating the electronic votes in Wisconsin. Thaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right, the biggest contributor to Obama, George Soros.
Whaaaaaaaat a coincidence boys and girls!
Remember what Stalin said. “He who votes does not have power. He who counts the votes has power”.
Here is my response:
Here is what Snopes says (although I do not trust them to give the full truth)
I find their information regarding the voting machines and George Soros suspect. George Soros thinks he is God and he is involved in so much more than anyone knows. What we DO know is that he has funded a project to put into place people HE deems worthy in the position of Secretary of State in each state. Why? because the SOS is the person who reviews and calls the winners in elections if there is any controversy. We are slowly being more and more controlled by the elite progressives and very few are paying attention. Sometimes I get so frightened at how fast this is all happening….and there are many people who have no clue what is going on. (I also pointed out that the quote attributed to Stalin may reflect his actions, however, I’ve found no evidence that he actually said this. I’m pretty sure he would agree with it though :-)
I also pointed out to those who have sent this email to me that I have been getting good information from fairly trusted sources via the internet and social media. So far these have proven to be great resources because I believe social media is moving faster than the Progressives efforts to re-write history….or create the “Ministry of Truth.” [I also recommend you find out who Cass Sunstein is and just how much power is already given to this real life "ministry."]
I then shared with them a post from Trevor Loudon: Snared in the Soros Web which gave me pause. Check it out. Now, you WILL find posts and articles that minimize these findings. They will say things that range from “Soros is not involved” to “so what if he gave $10,000 to this cause. I do not believe that George Soros’ involvement in anything should be dismissed as irrelevant. Do some research. This man thinks of himself as God and is quite powerful. He does not just donate money, he instills his world view into everything he tries to accomplish. And I have to believe that most rational people would NOT agree with the end game he supports. But, then again, the average person doesn’t get both sides of the argument. They only get a left/Progressive leaning stream of information.
Yeah, I know a bunch of people don’t buy into that old “media bias” theory. But I would ask that you humor me and watch the video below.
The video can be found at the Cato Institute website and I believe it is worthy of an hour of your time:
Warning: it involves MATH! However, the author of the book still makes it fairly easy to understand. Watch it with an open mind. Think about the possibilities of manipulation if the bias is slanted in EITHER direction.
Oh, and you might want to find out who Edward Bernays was….
“If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing about it? The recent practice of propaganda has proved that it is possible, at least up to a certain point and within certain limits.”
