Astroturfers are Wagging Your Dog

July 7, 2009

Billy Mays was a good pitchman who could sell just about anything.  We are good consumers.  We want well made products that make our lives easier to manage and will buy just about anything.  Your government knows this and is looking out…for you!

You can bet your last pack of 8 dollar cigarettes, that any war, action or event that has entered our consciousness in recent memory, has been kid tested and mother approved.  Because we want well made products that make our lives easier.

Control the message, sell the product.

Of course this is nothing new.  The Constitution and Eisenhower warned of it and as of late, short white men with names like Cheney, Rumsfeld, McNamara and Kissinger, made make believe happen.  Because we need to believe in the unbelievable.

Control the message, sell the product.

Be it DreamWorks, GE or PR firms like Hill and Knowlton, make believe sells very well, because we need to believe in the unbelievable.

sell the product

Desert Shield/Storm was written and directed by Hill & Knowlton with help from The Rendon Group, who then later gave us Ahmed Chalabi.  Chalabi was the actor who worked with the Rendon Group which sold us the current Iraq War.

control the message

Palin, WMD’s, Anthrax and Yellow Cake!  Jessica Lynch, Health Care, Tea Baggers and Stimulus Packages!

Spin it till you win it, or at least long enough for us to forget it.

Remember citizens, Democrats, Republicans and the media are all dirty.  Beware the messenger.  Also beware of earth friendly hybrids built by GM, Ford or Fiat.  Power generating windmills and solar farms built by GE, BP and Exxon?  We’re already a third of the way there.

Control the message, sell the product.

      Not very nice?
      You’re kidding.

      Murdering, lying, war criminals who profit from their murdering and raping in your name…yes, how very racist of me.

        I can agree that Cheney is a huge jackass, but to say;
        ‘short white men’
        is RACIST.

          So I hate short white murdering liars…

          I’m a white racist!

    You see, its OK if YOU say this… ‘short white men’ it’s not suppose to bother stupid white people, huh?
    Well, when YOU get told that “We have enough white people” the next time you move to a big city to get employment, let me know how YOU feel.
    Remember…congress?? They ALL voted for Bush to go to war, as well as ‘stupid white short jerk off Clinton’ in Dec. 1998:
    Earlier today, I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

      Well, I am a tall white man, O confused one, and yes, the world is full of stupid white people who are also short.

      “We have enough white people”…it’s funny because it’s true!!

      Careful now…or you might realize that here is no difference between the Dems or the racist Limbaugh licking Republicans.
      Appears you actually believe what your Congress Human tells you?

    My people have been up against race-hate and religious hate for OVER 6 thousand years, we KNOW when it is real as in comparison to the card that gets played by left-wing radical self-hating Jews, and people like professor Gates.

      Let’s just leave it there madjewess…

      I am no Democrat, and I am no Republican and I certainly care not for religions of any kind, that kill so many.

      So I equally discriminate against the church folk!


      • August 8, 2009 10:39

        Not here, lens. I live in “Jew” York, thats what they call it now. The only people that are white people that get jobs in Flushing Queens are disabled. It is sad, but its the truth, and this has made more white men unemployed and homeless than any other group in NYC now.
        People should be hired based on qualification not color.
        It is rude to just tell a white woman totally qualified that ‘they have enough whites’ especially since my grandfathers faught against slavery.
        I dont much like the church as I believe that they are suppose to take care of; poor, old, children, etc, and they do lousy.
        As far as Jewish people, (here in NYC?) they worship black people, its just a fact. They have made projects on the beaches here in NYC. And an indigenous white American is homeless, its happening–HERE–in NYC, where we have memorials dedicated to ‘saving the union, and setting slaves free’ but Jewish leftists have LIED to people by saying “ALL of America is RACIST” They do this in holocaust museums. It is sad really.
        I am neither a “D” or and “R” TY—NO!!
        I just want America that ?I knew grwoing up, and for the last 20 years, all of these sorry, pathetic LOSERS have fked this place up beyond hope and repair.

          So your ecstatic that Obama is your President, yes? You believe he was born in Hawaii….right?

          Us indigenous whites need to stick together, right? The last 20, 40 and 160 years were awesome! If you were an indigenous white skinned human.

          I’m a veteran, my Dad was a veteran, my indigenous pale face relatives fought and killed my real indigenous Huron relatives who in turn killed more of my other pale face relatives…then we all went home and prayed so that Jesus would allow us to kill again later. Then my southern relatives killed my northern relatives because we liked the black skin folks…as long as they stayed in their place and didn’t have equal access to jobs or education.

          Are ya sensing a pattern yet?

          Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan…why are the Jews or Christians better than these brown skinned humans? Because you believe it to be? Did you know that we created the Taliban? Do you know what Raytheon and Xe are? Ever heard of Sibel Edmonds?

          Obama, Bush, Norm Dicks and the rest of Congress are counting on you to not understand. Keep blaming the black humans for your job losses, the Mexicans for your health care expenses and the leftest Jews or the rightest Baptists and nothing will ever change for you, me or anyone else.

          Blame ourselves. We’ve bought the lies and propaganda for as long as we’ve been here.
          There is no black and white…it’s all just a shade of gray run by billionaires who own the politicians who incite you to go bang on windows at town hall meetings and scream for a birth certificate…

          New York is big. America is much bigger and it is not what you ever though it was.

    I’m a bit fuzzy on this – what is an indigenous white person?


    • lens1 permalink*

      That was a new one.

      Talking points are in short supply I’m afraid…but I think it’s a white human…who loves black skinned humans as long as the good jobs are reserved for whitey, schools are segregated, and we pretend that we are the chosen ones…when we’re not killing Muslims, my tribal brothers, wacky liberals and or hunting terror creating Mexicans?

      Color me fuzzy as well.

      basically, ginger, white people often feel entitled to claim anything they want, so claiming to be indigenous is no stretch at all. besides, here on turtle island, the inhabitants prior to the landing of the mayflower are often regarded as subhuman, and their descendants therefore unqualified to claim the status of indigenous.

      the first humans here, then, using that kind of ‘reasoning,’ so prevalent in this age of the tea bagger, were white. in other words, in amurka, only white people can safely claim to be indigenous–and the shorter the white person the better.

      no wonder so many short white people are upset about having a biracial man in the white house. it’s so confusing.

        Ahhh yes…thanks Tenzing, color me less fuzzy now.
        And much taller than the short white humans.
