War of Civilizations

Original post made by Jim, Palo Verde, on Jun 21, 2007

I offer the following propaganda video:

Web Link

It is by David Horowitz. As propaganda goes, I think it tells the basic story. If something like this played big in the U.S. and Europe in the mid 1930's maybe we would have opened our eyes.

I will see it later, thanks for the tip, Jim.

I find Horowitz a bit hyperbolic, but I have to tell everyone that I highly recommend wading through his autobiography "Radical Son", about his journey from being a far-left, near communist to becoming a "neo-con". It is fascinating and eye-opening.

Yes, it is propoganda, music and all...but every single data point and photo is true..no lies. Wake up, everyone.

Agreed, Jim..if this had been around in 1935, millions of people would have been spared.

Fascism is fascism, no matter what the brand is.

Millions would have been spared, assuming anyone paid attention.
