As events unfold in New Orleans, the Third World watches in astonishment
In Mogadishu, militants laughed and fired guns in the air after watching CNN reports on looting in New Orleans. "With American citizens like that, who needs enemies!" laughed Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys. "I was going to infiltrate America and blow myself up in a shopping mall, but I'll take my chances here, thank you very much!"
Once again, the Katrina-galvanized voices of our progressive media are reaching their screeching crescendo as they focus on the negative while painting a grotesque picture of class struggle, racism, unequal opportunity, and environmental crisis in the United States. Only a lazy, unenlightened reporter would not exploit this convenient and God-sent opportunity to expose the evils of American capitalism and the facilitating Republican administration.
Progressive schools have taught our reporters to act locally while thinking globally. Which means, present local news in a way that helps the global advancement of the Greater Good™. Behind all the petty local bickering, a magnificent global goal gets accomplished - to paint America as the dark, unjust, inhumane hellhole to the rest of the world! The global advancement of the Greater Good™ requires that the worlds' peasants give up any fantasies about American liberties and focus more on obeying their progressive masters.
We can't always convince Americans of the horrors of capitalism, but we can force-feed the rest of the world incessant and unchecked coverage of alleged American evils. Then we interview a foreign citizen whose head is spinning from our unopposed propaganda, and throw his regurgitated opinions back on American audiences. Voila - the weak-minded have no choice but to see how angry the rest of the world is at Americans. Works like a charm.
America's image abroad is being shaped by its media who is working relentlessly to destroy the very image they are being paid to portray objectively and professionally. Propaganda is a one-way street - and we are moving ahead forcefully, red banners held high. More are joining the global march toward socialism daily - with each fabrication, each skewed article, each biased comment by an American reporter rebroadcast over the world's networks. Why are progressive Americans helping us against their national interest? Because on a progressive moral scale, "good" is whatever helps the advancement of global socialism!

Quote:Meanwhile, firefighters battled blazes around New Orleans an emerging threat in a city where the water pressure is too low to fight fires and where many people are using candles because of the lack of electricity. At the same time, workers returning to restart essential services came under sniper fire.
"We have got some information where, some possible shooters have been shooting at some employees trying to get in to the city to actually get it back up and running," police Sgt. Charlie Smith said.
"Well, we found a bunch of abandoned buildings and we are actually going to go ahead and try to retrieve some of these Ak-47s assault rifles that they have been using to shoot at helicopters and some of the people trying to get back into the city to get it back up and running."
Reminds one of the collapse of civilization in Atlas Shrugged, doesn't it. Unlike some people I believe the veneer of civilization is very thick - it takes years, decades for the ideals of civilization to disappear from the hearts and minds of people. And then it only requires one good disaster for the jungle to return. Thanks Elsworth, you've done your job well.

Seriously, look at her - I wouldn't want to meet her under a full moon in a graveyard alone! (which is where you'd probably find Hillary on any given full moon)
But then I guess I wouldn't meet her at Disneyland either, so, that doesn't prove too much - but I'll bet Moore would have easy time of it connecting Hillary's ancestral lines to that of Count Dracula or something. It'll be TransylvaniaGate - a good topic considering the season, don't you think?
