Lowe’s Un-Aired Commercial

Thanks to the great folks over at The Immoral Minority blog, we have for you the un-aired All-AMerican Muslim commercial that Lowe’s pulled after pressure from the Florida Family Association. The FFA is in partnership on this issue with none other than Queen of Islamophobia and Ayn Rand Wanna-be, Pamela Geller, who was one of the inspirations and idols for Norway McVeigh.
If you are a cyberactivist and would like to join the effort to Occupy Lowe’s, click here for tips and tools to make your voice heard!
Like Gryphen at the Immoral Minority Report, we too think it is a really good commercial, even if it is a little “in your face”. Enjoy!

What Would The Tea Party Do?

Just like the Occupiers in the streets all over the world, we are rising up against the corporate corruption of our world, including the corruption of the media.

Thanks to the Citizens United decision, Americans are being constantly bombarded by deceptive political ads by powerful monied interests seeking to influence the minds and the votes of citizens to empower the corporations and their corruption even more.

“Whosoever controls the media, controls reality.” ~ Peter Jennings 1989

These ads dispute the truth, smear reality, and attack the facts. The People out there protesting are making it known to those who have wronged us all that we are here to reclaim our world. That is precisely what you are doing when you Occupy Your Local Media. By writing emails and letters to the editor, calling television and radio stations and making your voice heard about these ads, we are sending a clear message that we are not just going to sit back and let corrupted monied interests corrupt our media. They have to tell the truth or they are not welcome in OUR media. We must EXPECT BETTER, and DEMAND THE BEST!

The Occupiers and Protesters never get their demands fulfilled immediately, however the long term impact of a steady and powerful protest that doesn’t go away WILL have an impact. We are beinnging to win the war on this horrible Supreme Court decision in favor of Corporations as People, but we as individuals must raise our voice to those who manage these ads and let them know we will not subject our families and ourselves to these deceitful, hateful, corrupt ads!

WHAT WOULD THE TEA PARTY DO?
The Tea Party wouldn’t let any opportunity pass them by, and they would never quit. That’s why they are so effective. One thing the Tea Party did we should never do is be rude or violent in any way. Do it right, be polite!

Occupying your local media is very simple to do and effective. When you see one of those deceitful ads, take note of the channel, time, and ad, then get the email and number from the internet for that station. Call them once in a while, and write emails often (always be respectful). Let every ad you see focus your energy on letting them know you are not going to just sit there while they have political wardrobe malfunctions against the Truth.

The media always needs to be monitored and kept in check. This is an ongoing protest that will never end, ever vigil, very vocal.

Media Mania

It’s hardly a secret that everyone believes there is some sort of bias in the news, especially when it comes to politics. Nevertheless, even the most cynical person usually trusts at least one news media personality – usually one that happily agrees with the viewer’s politics. Regardless of your political beliefs, how much do you trust news from the mainstream media?

Some News Leaves People Knowing Less – Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind Poll
“According to the latest results from Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind Poll, some news sources make us less likely to know what’s going on in the world. In the most recent study, the poll asked New Jerseyans about current events at home and abroad, and from what sources – if any – they get their information. The conclusion: Sunday morning news shows do the most to help people learn about current events, while some outlets, especially Fox News, lead people to be even less informed than those who say they don’t watch any news at all.”   [Read Article]

It’s up to us

“The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” ~ Plato

The Citizens United v. FEC decision was a major turning point in the corporate movement to seize our government, nation and world. With the power of the media now unleashed for political influence and corruption, all the powers-that-be need to do is tilt public opinion enough to set the stage for corporate wins on election day. That increases the amount of corporate politicians in power who then set policies that are not just “pro-business”, but intentionally sabotage, paralyze or destroy anything that restricts their unquenchable blood-lust for greed. The ultimate goal is a fascist takeover of America. We will only have ourselves to blame when that takeover is complete.

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.” ~ Franlink Delano Roosevelt   [Read Article]
