One of the most effective means the left have used to weave their politics into our culture is by inserting their ideas into our entertainment sources. For years now, Hollywood has been pumping out situation comedies or movies stereotyping right wingers as selfish bad guys or right wing ideas as loony whilst enthusiastically promoting left wing ideas and politicians as compassionate and caring. This was the theory Antonio Gramsci, a fervid Marxist and founding member of the Italian Communist Party, advocated in his political writings, fashionable in the first half of last century. Basically, its a theory of “Cultural Hegemony” and was centered on the idea that if one controls the culture, one controls the politics.
Its a theory that dovetails nicely with Marxist theory and Keynesian economics. The left have used if effectively since, well, I don’t know, maybe around the 1950- 1960s right up till today where they’re still going stronger than ever with the overwhelming majority of movies and TV shows coming out of the US thoroughly Marxist in their politics, and Conservative actors and writers basically blackballed from the industry. Now we have the leader of one of history’s most criminal and morally bankrupt organisations openly asking Hollywood to do propaganda for him. UN Secretary Ban Ki-moon met Hollywood heavyweights at a forum on global climate change.
“I need your support,” he told entertainment industry insiders during a daylong forum Tuesday that focused on recent heat waves, floods, fires and drought, which scientists link to human-induced climate change. “Animate these stories!” Ban pleaded. “Set them to music! Give them life! Together we can have a blockbuster impact on the world.”
[..]About 400 writers, directors, producers, agents and network executives attended the outreach events: a series of panels at the Hammer Museum, moderated by Larry King; a lunch for selected bigwigs; tete-a-tete meetings between high-powered industry players and top U.N. officials; and a star-studded dinner where Ban was introduced by Charlize Theron, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa took a turn playing the drums.
Director James Brooke touted his upcoming documentary on Africa’s Lake Victoria, which he called “one of the planet’s early warning points, like the Arctic and the Amazon.” But few people see documentaries, Brooke acknowledged. “We need to integrate climate change into what people watch on TV,” he said. “What about a show like ‘The Biggest Loser,’ except it would be about decreasing our carbon footprint?” [..]”You have power and influence to send to millions and billions of people around world,” Ban told his Los Angeles audience. “To make planet Earth environmentally sustainable is a political and moral imperative.”
[..] Also speaking on panels were Indian economist Rajendra Pachauri — chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the group of some 2,500 scientists who won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for assessing the effects of greenhouse gases — and Costa Rican diplomat Christiana Figueres, who led global treaty negotiations in Cancun as the head of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change.
[..] “There’s a huge gap between what governments can do, given political constraints, and what they should do,” Figueres told Hollywood executives. “That’s where you come in. … We need you to make it sexy and cool to bring about the energy revolution that has to happen.” King asked Pachauri if he had a “sexy story we could make into a film.”
[..] The U.N. campaign focuses not just on TV and movies, but also on social media. While in L.A., Ban met with members of the band Linkin Park, who borrowed a U.N. video on Haiti last year and set it to music, boosting its viewership from 6,000 to 6 million. The band pledged to help with the climate change campaign. “I’m an Elvis kind of guy,” Ban joked in his dinner speech. “But I am now Linkin Park’s biggest fan.”
Clearly, Ban ki-moon and his IPCC cronies are getting desperate. I’m not sure how you readers see this, but to me it is utterly revolting. So corrupt. And similar to how Hitler used the entertainment industry to sell the idea of his Third Reich. Hollywood lost me long ago, and I detest the UN, that collection of thugs and murderers and dictators posturing as world leaders. Now with these two repugnant amoral entities combining into one, to propagate lies, I find them both even more repulsive.
I doubt they’re too worried though by any criticism from me though. There’s no doubt a whole slew of newly designed climate change propaganda is ready to be introduced into your home by way of television and movies next season. Even more reason to keep the TV turned off.
