Conservatives Should Disempower Left-wing Propaganda

Raquel Okyay is a noted New York State conservative. She ran for City Council in Queens and now is a major figure in the Republican Liberty Caucus in New Paltz, New York. Recently she wrote an excellent blog arguing that "Obama won by lies, fraud and manipulation." Okyay makes some excellent points about the mass media's bias. But she argued that the New York Times is "a major partisan news organization".

I correct Okyay on her blog as follows:

"No, no, no. The Times is the 'pissant media'. Don’t empower it. It is a pissant. Nothing more. Please don’t call it 'major'. It is as major as the biggest ant you can think of, a quarter inch or so."

Okyay wrote back to me:

"You're right, what was I thinking?? I changed it to pissant."

But I was wrong about one thing. The Times is not media. It is propaganda. Media implies communication of information. The Times does not communicate information; it propagandizes and lies. Conservatives have made the error of empowering pissant propaganda sources like the Times by calling them "mainstream", "media", "MSM" and "major". They are not mainstream, major nor media.

Conservatives need to raise their consciousness and begin to disempower propaganda sources. I think there needs to be consciousness raising among conservatives. Conservatives need a new vocabulary attendant upon a new consciousness. Conservatives need to evolve away from the categories that statist left wing murderers have constructed. "Progressivism" is not progressive; "liberals" are not liberal; socialism is anti-social; and the news media provides neither news nor serves as media. There is nothing "mainstream" about the New York Times nor network television. Nor is there anything major about them.
