NBC and their love affair with ‘History’s pivotal experiment’ – Russia


PJ Media brings us the NBC narrative of the wonders of the Hammer and Sickle of the grand empire Russia. As if we could not have one moment of non propaganda during the Olympics, first we have Dear Leader on, then the historical nonsense of this evil empire that slaughtered millions of its people. Great video over at the link. Just in case one missed it.

“The towering presence, the empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint. The revolution that birthed one of modern history’s pivotal experiments. But if politics has long shaped our sense of who they are, it’s passion that endures. As a more reliable right to their collective heart. What they build in aspirations lifted by imagination. What they craft, through the wonder of every last detail. How magical the fusion of sound and movement can be. How much a glass of distilled perfection and an overflowing table can matter. Discover the Russian people through these indelible signatures. Discover what we share with them through the games that open here tonight.”

George Orwell, call your office. As he wrote in “Politics and the English Language,” in 1946, such euphemisms are “designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable,” and certainly describing Communism as “one of modern history’s pivotal experiments” fits the bill in spades. Or as Stacy McCain accurately described it this week at the American Spectator, “The Worst Idea in the World”:

    They should be talking about spirit of the games.

    The Russian took a terrible tumble. His ski snapped. A Canadian coach ran up and gave him his. He also helped him by putting it on.

    That’s the spirit.

    Great article-thanks.
    One observation: “a set of social relations based on fellowship and mutual aid” … yuk, yuk, yuk and an Uhm Uhm Uhm. It has been my experience that anyone I have known to be of the “leftist” ilk is a selfish, self centered, arrogant cheapskate who would shoot anyone trying to gain entrance to their gated community. By the way, is Mooch still collecting her $400,000 no show pay check from the University of Chicago?

    I think of you when I read the headlines about what is going on down there. Inflation will hit with a vengeance. Everyone has forgot tom about Carter’s 22 percent.

      I financed a Pontiac J-2000 station wagon at 18.5 %. I did catch a break though, with a 13% mortgage rate on my first house. Forget-never!

    They never give up, Bunker. I live in the land of “We going to get communism right this time” and it is a bloddy disaster. Store shelves have less and less every day, inflation last year was 56% and this year it is expected to be 85%. Insanity! The US is heading down the same path!
