Sovietto Leftist Gobbledeegook. Does Tolerance Mean Tolerance of Intolerance? Inversion of Reality.

Reader comment on item: [The Islamist-Leftist] Allied Menace

Submitted by Sofa Sogood (United States), Jul 4, 2008 at 23:55

Tolerance of Intolerance? Is the definition of Tolerance to be tolerant of intolerance? Or does Tolerance mean Intolerance of Intolerance?

Gobbledeegook, mind-bending, Sovietto doublespeak, destruction of meanings and definitions.

In many of the martial arts, the opponents own energy is used against him. That is what is being done to the West. Mental jiu-jitsu. It's as if they've studied our most precious concepts, and sought out the ways to destroy our confidence in them by inverting and twisting them.

I blame the Media for this, for not doing their fourth estate guardian duty. Instead they thrive on this trash.

Academia as well. The academic groups forming now against the trend of a politically totalitarian academia are great -- but very late.

Where will the results of this inverted thinking, destruction of reason and the ability to connect with reality lead us?

The truth about the miserable effects and results of Islamist Rule is plain as day for anyone with eyes, yet so many are lost in this ploy -- this war on words, blunting the ability to reason.

How to fight this with the Media and Academia on the side of unreality?

Rather than a Frank Luntz teaching how to "frame" slogans to present them in a better way to "sell" -- how about a debunker of "framed slogans."

So totally cynical -- the TV conversatoins about the election -- They don't even bother to mention what the candidates actually believe is right -- but all they discuss is what who needs to say to gain the approval of which group. So totally meaningless and empty. There isn't even a real pretence any more about ideas or convictions -- just what they need to "say" and "how" they "say" whatever it is.

Isn't there anyone who would fund a nightly Cable TV Show doing nothing but exposing inverted concepts, Media twisting of events, ideas and words. Most American people, democrat or republican, are dying of thirst for something like this. Something truly sincere and serious. Someone, some intelligent personality, who would just speak plain truth to them, expose the mutations and distortions -- without having something or other to "sell" to them.

Some forum for the public to use so that they can make up their minds based on issues as they truly are.

Isn't there anyone out there to do this for our country?
