brainwashed my dad

Salon, by Jen Senko and Rory O´Connor

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/12/2013 6:54:19 AM

Jen Senko is a filmmaker who watched in horror as her father slowly came to believe the extreme right-wing lies of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative media mavens. Now she’s making a documentary about it calledThe Brainwashing of My Dad. Senko’s first documentary, Road Map Warrior Women, won recognition with several festival awards. Her most recent film, The Vanishing City, co-directed with Fiore DeRosa, exposes the economic policies that have made New York a city for the rich. The Vanishing City won Best Feature Documentary in the Williamsburg International Film Festival, Best Short Documentary in the Harlem International Film Festival, and

FTA:"Unlike my mother, he was easily influenced and seemed to respond to anything he thought was not fair or unjust"

There it is, men are stupid and totally incapable of thinking for themselves.
Idiot.

Whoever this meathead Senko is, he certainly should have spent more time listening to his father.

Senko is SO MUCH SMARTER that her father, who lived through Roosevelt, the Depression, LBJ´s Great Society and all the other things that brought us to where we are today. What a disrespectful idiot-----I hope she is proud of herself.

Gee... I´m grateful to say that reality "brainwashed" me into getting up everyday, going to work, being independent, being responsible to my family and for my actions, understanding that 2 + 2 actually equal 4 and having a good, operational BS detector!

On rethinking this, I´m not too sure this wasn´t written for the Onion. I have never seen so many leftist cliches in one article. I suppose she thinks this is what passes for scathing deep thinking. And it does, among the brainwashed. The ability to regurgitate propaganda indicated her indoctrination is complete.i

So the little progressive left winger is throwing her father under the bus for daring to have a different opinions than her own. This is so Orwellian that she is practically turning in her father in to INGSOC for thought crimes.

Senko is correct but for the wrong reason. FNC´s insistence that we be subject to the propaganda efforts of Juan Williams, Alan Colmes, Bob Beckel, Lannie Davis and other leftists is brainwashing at its most basic level. We still have enough control of our brains to turn the channel whenever these leftists are given the microphone.

FNC´s use of White House spinners is why we have reduced our viewing of its shows.

Calm down folks. It´s satire. Once in a while even the left shows a sense of humor. Not often mind you and mostly by accident.

I would submit that brainwashing is not, in and of itself, a bad thing, especially when, once the brain has been washed, it is actually clean. Jan Senko´s dad had his brain cleaned. Good for him.

And those who don´t listen to Rush, Hannity, Levin et al are not brainwashed?

The Left has a monopoly on information dissemination: They have all the alphabet networks on TV, they have Hollywood and they have the school system. Their brainwashing is legendary.

But give a few conservatives some talk radio air time and the hysteria begins. Heaven forbid the Marxism should be countered with some reality.

Because the Democrats are feeling their oats about now and because this POTUS bypasses the Constitution and Congress at will, it is only a matter of time before Rush & Co will be shut down in the name of sedition.

Quite apart from any political ideology, it seems to me this man, Jan´s father, may have had a fundamental problem, perhaps had some kind of psychotic break, because apart from his political shift, he had a personality split.

Read the entire article, did not have a wiff of satire in my opinion. Sounds like the typical Leftist/Liberal/Progressive who wants to re-educate everyone who does not think in lock step with the American Left. Leftists always claim they have an "argument" when all they really have is "emotion".

The propaganda all flows from the Left and more and more people are turning away from the msm who spout every day about the "economic recovery" and our wonderful Messiah, neither of which exist.

I wonder if anyone will try to interview Jan´s dad. I bet he doesn´t exist, at least not the way Jan portrays the simple angry automaton. As David Horowitz reminded us, liberals lie if it´s for a "good cause." This piece reads as believably as My Month With a Gun Week One.

"So when Rush Limbaugh told him that poor people and Mexicans and blacks and feminazis were to blame for well, everything, "

I listen to Rush everyday now that I am retired. In the last ten years, I have never once heard Rush say anything close to the above statement.

I stopped reading at this point. Just another liberal lie.

No sign "smartest person in the room ", smug Jenny , has ever shut up long enough to even listen to Rush . Amazing the lack of curiosity .. About all the underpinnings of her father´s outlook . Gosh Breitbart woulda done a follow up with old stoopid, stone age dad.. I am thinking the poor man might need an ally against the battle of the shrews he lives with / in spite of .. Or a case of scotch .. Maybe we should collect and send him some .. Or her a fruit basket..

Right wingers, the same thing that was said about Ronald Reagan, whose philosophy many of these so called right wingers are the heirs. Ronald Reagan, G-d having given him the wisdom to leave the left wing plantation, a thinking man and a man who sincerely loves his country.....these men are his heirs. They do not march to the drummer of the left wing masterminds, who always have a new gimmick to save men from their mostly self inflicted misfortunes and always find suckers who will go along with them. Having grown up in a generation of self reliance, it is nauseating to see our country falling into disrepair, disunity, decadence and desire for someone else to pick up the bill. We are the authors of our own demise.........sad to say.

The last paragraph reveals the depth of the filmmaker´s intellect. When asked what she would say to Rush, if she had a chance, she responds that she would call him a fat f**k, not that there is anything wrong with being fat, she hastily adds! Playground name-calling, the debate strategy of the left.

When Fox didn´t fire Shep Smith after his disgraceful performance during hurricane Katrina, we stopped watched him and when they fired their only real conservative, Brit Hume, we stopped watching Fox News totally.

Remember folks, Murdoch isn´t conservative (he endorsed Hillary for president in 2008) and neither in Fox News. He´s a smart businessman. Fox News is only a profitable business and while there´s nothing wrong with that, I´m not buying their product.

Attention all Ldotters:
My fellow college alumni hurled all of these insults at me in 2008. At that time I suggested that a person with no executive experience would not do his job.
I was deemed a mind-numbed robot.
I was sentenced to penal servitude at Guantanamo Bay, where I would learn to correct my errors.
It turns out the mind-numbed robots are the liberals on the left. All that the Lame-Stream Media can do is parrot the line of the day which wafts (disgustingly) from the WH Press Office at 5 AM daily.
There was a large immigration rally on the (closed) National Mall. The rally was not covered by the LSM. You see, it was politically wrong to admit that special provisions were made for illegal immigrants. "Citizens" of the United States might have been offended.
To get news, you have to go to Fox or (preferably) Lucianne!

Too much ignorance to mention each instance. Some of it was laugh out loud funny. Some ironic. Some of it was just sad. All of it typical of leftist brainwashing.

Looks like that popular leftist example of a lying propagandist, Rush Limbaugh, is in for another attack as the cause of all evil in these United States of America.

Can´t figure out whether her daddy was "lost" because of Rush, and "found" because of her "deprogramming" efforts (in which case he really would be naive, gullible and easily swayed), or if he has literally lost his mind, as she has (which is what happens as a result of leftist brainwashing).

In any case, bless her little brainwashed heart.

I am often accused of getting my marching orders from Rush. The rant from the left always claims "Rush does nothing but lie and you fall for it." I then offer the following bet: If the Rush-basher can bring me one instance of a lie that Rush tells on-air (not what some leftist claims he said) within one month, I will pay them $100. If they cannot, they owe me $20. I have collected many times but have not had to pay off once.

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/1/2014 8:44:33 PM     Post Reply
Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc. ´Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who´s Who of Brotherhood front groups. "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community." USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of "institutionalizing policies" favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law. This development bears careful

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

Regulation: The White House has released a Climate Action Plan that includes the targeting of methane emissions from cows and other barnyard animals that threaten the planet through belching and other, er, activities. It´s our lust for cheeseburgers that´s dooming the planet through climate change, the Obama administration said in a Climate Action Plan released Friday that seeks to save us all from ruminant livestock. Having already blamed the Industrial Revolution for what we used to call weather and temperatures that have flat-lined for 15 years, the White House is now targeting American agriculture abundance by slashing methane emissions from cows by

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of
