Laughing Political Correctness Off Campus: Indoctrinate U

Ok, it's a Blue Moon. This is one I'm going to forward and hope you join me and share it with others.
I've been following Evan Coyne Maloney's commentary at for several years now.
He's the one who did the video clips of some protestors a few yars ago. It was hilarious stuff (like this one; 'my favorite protestor'). 
His opinion commentary is well thought out, never shrill
Now he has made a new documentary movie called 'Indoctrinate U.'
Evan is trying to make a point with the Hollywood moguls that there is enough grassroots interest to distribute his documentary nationwide.  They don't want to touch it.  Evan's movie is a sort of anti-Michael Moore-esque documentary (my description, not his). 
His documentary movie exposes to the world the liberal bias and political correctness that is being taught, enforced and lived on university and college campuses across America.
I hope you'll add your name to the list requesting a local screening of the documentary movie 'Indoctrinate U'. 
Wouldn't you think that our colleges and universities would be the place for honest, open discussion and debate of today's problems, and the solutions our youth will bring forth from their generation?
Not so.
Freedom of speech in our great bastion of advanced learning institutions, is not allowed.  Thinkers need not apply.  Unless of course they fit the "proper" ideology.
Do you support freedom of speech, even if it's an opposing view from yours? 
If enough people answer 'no' to that, then maybe the Great American Experiment in Freedom has already ended.
What are they afraid of?  The truth?  An opposing view?
Please add your vote to support the distribution of this movie here and hope that we can tip the scale to bring this documentary to light, coming soon to a theater near you!
ps. Remember this is not a vote for whether you agree or disagree with the ideology. It is merely a request to get the movie distributed in your area so you can see it and decide for yourself.
pps. Please pass this along!  We need to go from 22,000 to 100,000+

Indoctrinate U: Laughing Political Correctness Off Campus

In this newsletter:

  1. How you can make a difference
  2. The good reviews keep rolling in
  3. Take action now!

You Can Make The Difference!

Tens of thousands of people now stand behind the effort to bring Indoctrinate U to movie theaters across America. And although Hollywood is already beginning to take notice, we can still do more together to prove that an audience exists for a different type of documentary. If you can get just 3 or 4 people—they can be your friends, relatives, co-workers, fellow students or alumni—to request a local screening of Indocrinate U, we can break our goal of 100,000 requests. In other words, you can make film history by leading the most successful grassroots campaign of the Internet age!

The progress so far: cities requesting Indoctrinate U

Good Reviews Rolling In!

So far, the response to the film has been overwhelming. Although we've held just three media-only screenings—the film has still not made its public debut—the good reviews are piling up. After Indoctrinate U was first launched into the national spotlight on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, the film has been featured on C-SPAN's Washington Journal and in the pages of several high-profile print publications, with more to follow.

Take Action

More than 22,000 people have already asked for screenings near them. But it's time for more people to join in. So please ask everyone you know who might be interested to visit, watch the 3-minute trailer, and then sign up for a screening.

You can help us alert the rest of America to the assault on free speech and free thought on campus. All you need to do is find three or four people who might want to see this film and ask them to enter their zip codes. It's that simple.

Before things change, people must become aware. And that's where you can help.

Thanks for your support,
The Indoctrinate U Team

Al Gore Spins the Earth; Nancy Pelosi Pledges 'Carbon Neutral' House

"Auer explained that water vapour is responsible for 95 per cent
of the greenhouse effect, an effect which is vital to keep the world warm.

"If we didn't have the greenhouse effect the planet would be at
minus 18 deg C but because we do have the greenhouse effect it is
plus 15 deg C, all the time."

The other greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen dioxide,
and various others including CFCs, contributed only five percent of the effect,
carbon dioxide being by far the greatest contributor at 3.6 percent.

However, carbon dioxide as a result of man's activities was only 3.2 percent of that,
hence only 0.12 percent of the greenhouse gases in total. Human-related methane,
nitrogen dioxide and CFCs etc made similarly minuscule contributions
to the effect: 0.066, 0.047 and 0.046 percent respectively.

"That ought to be the end of the argument, there and then," he said."

This is absolute insanity!
"The remaining 24,000 tons of carbon emissions would be dealt with
by buying carbon offsets from the Chicago Climate Exchange.

The pending Fiscal 2008 budget for Congress includes $95,000 for the
carbon offsets, $520,000 for the switch to more expensive renewable
sources for electricity and $2.75 million to revamp the power plant.
The budget also provides for installation of an E-85 ethanol fueling station."
So check out the skinny on the Chicago Climate Exchange

Now guess who is making money off the taxpayer by growing trees and/or by NOT growing corn on his farm?
Senator Richard Luger (R-IN), Lugar is a member of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee.
He (and God only knows how many others) is selling carbon credits reportedly to the tune of $12,000 (so far)
to the same outfit Pelosi wants to buy carbon credits from. 
People, you'd better start making some noise with your elected representatives unless you enjoy the idea
of paying a Global Carbon Tax. Contact your Congressman and Senators today.

Global Warming: Read the Sunspots

"The fact that science is many years away from
properly understanding global climate doesn't
seem to bother our leaders at all. Inviting testimony
only from those who don't question political orthodoxy
on the issue, parliamentarians are charging ahead
with the impossible and expensive goal
of "stopping global climate change."
Government has been jacking around with Mother Nature
by tampering with our clocks for 100 years.  Now those poor,
arrogant bastards think they can legislate climate change too.
Even King Canute understood his limitations.

Helping along global warming - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Helping along global warming - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
The term GIGO comes to mind. Garbage In, Garbage Out. Finally, someone took the time to actually go look at the temperature collection process.  And what did they find?  The termperature-gathering devices were placed hear AC units, on rooftops, and close to trash burn barrels, all likely skewing real temperature numbers upwards.  On top of that the NOAA collects the days from these 1,221 sites and then "adjusts" them as they deem necessary.
algore and his religious hysteria about man-made global warming is, more and more, exposing itself to be nothing more than a political end-run around our sovereignty with the goal of a one-world global government... that he heads, no doubt.

Freedom, not climate, is at risk

Freedom, not climate, is at risk
By Vaclav Klaus Published: June 13 2007
"As someone who lived under communism for most of his life,
I feel obliged to say that I see the biggest threat to freedom,
democracy, the market economy and prosperity now in ambitious
environmentalism, not in communism."
There are two kinds of people in the political arena: Freedom Lovers and Control Freaks.  Freedom Lovers are Conservatives, Republicans (real Republicans, not most of the namby pamby RINO potato heads in Congress today).  Freedom Lovers want to just live their lives.  They don't want to constantly fight the unending political battle for control.   Control Freaks are the Liberals, Democrats.  Control Freaks think everything would be just fine if everyone would just do what they say, their way.  They are relentless in their pursuit.  Because of this, unfortunately, it's often the Control Freaks who migrate to political office.
It's very telling that someone who lived their life under communist control and who is now free, really sees what freedom is.  Many Americans have lost the perspective of what freedom is.  They think they can vote for cradle-to-grave government support, more government-funded services and yet still have their freedom.  But once such socialist and communist ideologies take over, freedom will be gone.
It's ironic that the Left who loudly complain about how George W. Bush has curtailed our Constitutional freedom through the Patriot Act and wiretapping policies against suspected terrorists, have no problem with massive Global Government control when it comes to environmental policy.  Is it government they fear, or just George Bush?

Obama Warns of 'Quiet Riot' Among Blacks

If this is not a call for incite to riot I don't know what is! 
Will he take responsibility when blacks decide to take him literally and start breaking things again? Or will he, once again, blame Bush?
This doom and gloom rhetoric is disgusting, but oh so typical of the Democrats.  They love to stir up hate.  Instead of offering a message of hope and opportunity and encouragement to make a run for the American Dream, they focus on the negative, the whining and bad.  They relish it and wallow in it.  
If there are more blacks in prison than in college whose fault is that??? Bush's?  The Democrats have been calling on Iraqis to stand up and take responsibility for their future, but they won't do the same right here in America. No, in America they tell their followers they NEED big government to look after them and take care of them and protect them and feed them and fix their owees...

(AP) Democratic Presidential candidate, Barack Obama, D-Il., speaks before a meeting of the Hampton...
Full Image

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Tuesday that the Bush administration has done nothing to defuse a "quiet riot" among blacks that threatens to erupt just as riots in Los Angeles did 15 years ago.

The first-term Illinois senator said that with black people from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still displaced 20 months after Hurricane Katrina, frustration and resentments are building explosively as they did before the 1992 riots.

"This administration was colorblind in its incompetence," Obama said at a conference of black clergy, "but the poverty and the hopelessness was there long before the hurricane.

"All the hurricane did was to pull the curtain back for all the world to see," he said.

Obama's criticism of Bush prompted ovation after ovation from the nearly 8,000 people gathered in Hampton University's Convocation Center, particularly when he denounced the Iraq war and noted that he had opposed it from the outset.

Repeatedly, he referred to the riots that erupted in Los Angeles after a jury acquitted four police officers of assault charges in the 1991 beating of Rodney King, a black motorist, after a high speed chase. Fifty-five people died and 2,000 were injured in several days of riots in the city's black neighborhoods.

"Those 'quiet riots' that take place every day are born from the same place as the fires and the destruction and the police decked out in riot gear and the deaths," Obama said. "They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope dissipates. Despair takes hold and young people all across this country look at the way the world is and believe that things are never going to get any better."

He argued that once a hurricane hits or a jury renders a not guilty verdict, "the frustration is there for all to see."  Full Story

The Seed of a Left Media hit piece

Here's how it begins. 
The L.A. Times seems to be a major source for hit pieces like this.  They dig around and find something that in itself means nothing.  Fred Thompson had a part in a TV show 20 years ago that had some racist elements in the character's dialog. Big Whoop.  But the author of the article dredges it up, complete with transcript of the dialog and presents it breathlessly as an 'innocent question'.

Will Fred Thompson's racist role have political repercussions? - Los Angeles Times (May 4, 2007)

Race-baiting is a common tactic of the left.  Others will pile on and ask the question repeatedly.  They will regurgitate the racy dialog over and over, making Thompson sound like the New Hitler, all the while standing there with their painted rosy-colored cheeks, innocently twirling their hair in their fingers like something out of a Rockwell painting.

In a month's time there are already 3,180 Google references to the search "Will Fred Thompson's racist role have political repercussions".  You can bet that by the time Thompson announces his candidacy the number will soar into the upper tens of thousands.

Beware the Big Media.  They are the mouthpiece for the Socialist "Progressive" Democrat Party.

Rush Limbaugh commented on the article on May 7th (subscription required).  It won't be long before a local TV station picks up 'the story' and runs with it, followed by the Today Show

They will be coming out of the woodwork to destroy their candidate's opposition.  They cannot win on ideas, so they must try to destroy them on character.

Freedom and Optimism, Not Collectivism, Made America Great

It really puzzles me when I hear liberals refer to Rush Limbaugh as a racist, a radical, shock jock, etc, when 95% of everything he says is reading it right off mainstream media newspaper articles. He constantly points out, pokes fun at and even parody's the absurd, the hypocrisy, the racist. And when the does he is often the one who is attacked for it. Sure he pushes the "PC" envelope at times, to be sure, but most of the other 95% of Rush's dialog is a positive, uplifting, you-can-do-it, America is great message. Liberals even have a problem with that.

You decide. I hope you'll take a moment to read this transcript excerpt from his show the other day and tell me which part you disagree with.

Freedom and Optimism, Not Collectivism, Made America Great
May 31, 2007

RUSH: You think that this Hillary idea of restricting corporate pay and giving the public access to it and veto power, you think that's ever going to happen? Our old buddy Barney Frank in the House of Representatives is proposing the legislation that she's talking about in the House, to rein in CEO pay, and they've already done this, by the way. One of the first things that Clinton did in 1993 as part of his massive tax increase, was to limit the deduction that corporations could take on executive pay over $1 million. He exempted athletes and entertainers of course, just the evil CEOs. You know what the result of that was? Hello, stock options, and hello bonuses -- and guess where stock options led us? That led us to all kinds of other legislation. They're never, ever do get this right. But there's something else at work here. You know, when you hear Democrats talking about "fairness" -- which is an elusive concept. It is impossible to implement fairness countrywide. It's as complex and elusive as trying to down something like climate change and global warming and find a singular explanation for it, such as manmade carbon dioxide. It's just absurd.

"Fairness," to Democrats, is misery spread equally. Are they not all miserable? Are they not all unhappy? You don't see them smiling -- and when they do smile, when Mrs. Clinton smiles, it looks forced. They're not having a good time. They're not enjoying their lives, and their supporters certainly aren't. They get up miserable. They get up angry. They get up filled with rage. Who would want to live that way? They tell us then that we're miserable and that we should be miserable, and so they want to spread the misery, and that equals "fairness." Nobody should be happy if everybody's not happy. We've heard straightforward pronouncements by Al-Qaeda, be it from bin Laden or al-Zawahiri, take your pick -- Ahmadinejad in Iran -- straightforward pronouncements of what their intentions for us are. It doesn't seem to faze a large portion of the American public. Have you ever asked yourself why? Well, some of it has to be due to the security that we have enjoyed since 9/11, because somebody is taking it seriously, and his name is George W. Bush! Enough Americans do realize the stakes to continue to support the man who is taking what these enemies of ours say seriously.

Some people in this country are not so far removed from 9/11, and they know what actions need to be taken to keep us safe. In the meantime, an increasing number of average, ordinary Democrats think 9/11 was an "inside job." It's totally irrational, but they're there, and they believe it. So when somebody likes Mrs. Clinton comes along and starts talking about -- or any Democrat, in fact. You know, when Hillary goes around and talks about "we're all in this together." Yeah, we're all in the misery together, and big government is the cure for this, and redistribution of wealth and opportunity. Why that sells to certain people is because, A, they're miserable. B, they're failures. They've failed to make it at least as far as their dreams had carried them, and so most people never blame themselves for their own shortcomings or problems. It's always somebody else's fault. It's always some other entity's problem. It's the neighbor's fault, whoever. Most people, very rarely when trying to assess their problems, start with themselves. They're not honest about it. It's Bush's fault that I'm miserable, or it's Limbaugh's fault. It's conservatives' fault, or whatever they come up with. It's inane, but they come up with these things.

Some of them have forgotten what built this country, what allows this country to lead the world. Some of them know and resent that we lead the world. They resent out the country was built, because it's led to their misery. They don't think that they're factors. They don't think they're that important. They think that life's an excrement sandwich, and some days all they get's mayonnaise on it. So they're out there, and they want everybody else to be miserable. "We're all in this together." How else can somebody entertain the thought that we all ought to be miserable if they have forgotten or if they have never been taught what it was that built the country? We've got growing wages across the board, despite this illegal immigration stuff that's going on, prosperity, GDP, stock market, whatever measure. I know the first quarter growth rate of the economy was stagnant. You have spikes like that, but my gosh, folks! My parents would not any more understand my life... You know what my dad was...? When I got out of radio when I was 29, I figured that was about the fifth time I'd been fired, "Well, if I haven't made it playing top 40 records when I'm 28 or 29, I'd better get out of it because, you know, it's a teenage market."
So I went to work for the Royals. When I lost my last radio job, I was making something like $22,000 or $23,000 a year. I was out of work for three months. I decided what I want to do, and I was in Kansas City, and I liked living there, so a friend of mine at the Kansas City Royals said, "Why don't you come work for us? We need a group sale director." Okay, I got $12,000 a year to start at age 29. I called my dad. My dad could not have been happier. God bless him. He thought radio was a waste of time. He never forced me out of it because I quit everything else prior to that. I was a Boy Scout. I was a tenderfoot for a year in the Boy Scouts! All you gotta do is join to be a tenderfoot. I got nothing done. My first camp-out I got the goldbrick award because I was just a bump on a log. I didn't do diddly-squat. I quit everything -- except baseball, Little League baseball. But that was just vocational stuff. So he never pulled me out of radio, but they were constantly worried. "Where is playing Donnie Osmond records going to lead our son? Nowhere! What's the social relevance?"

So when I called and told him that I was joining the Kansas City Royals, ah, he was ecstatic. Twelve thousand dollars a year, and this is 1979. He said son, "If you play your cards right, and you be there 30 years, you may make $50,000 and get a car, company car." His formative experience was the Great Depression, and World War II, and if you didn't get a college degree (which I don't have) you didn't have a chance. That was just his world. He was trying to be a good father. He was ecstatic. After five years I left the Royals making $17,000 a year. I got a thousand-dollar-a-year raise every year, and went back into radio, and he started getting worried all over again. But I was just pursuing my passion. The point is, my father would no more relate to my life today -- he'd be thrilled by it, don't misunderstand -- and I think, you know, we've always had arguments in this society about, "Well, is this the generation that's not going to do as well its parents?" We are nowhere near that yet, but the misery index crowd would love for you to believe that that's the case. You know, over the course of my career, people have come up to me and sought advice on getting into radio, and I said, "Well, the worst thing you could do is go talk to people who have failed at it, because they'll tell you that you shouldn't do it, that the business will eat you up and spit you out. Make sure you talk to people who have succeeded at it."

It's easy to run into people who'll tell you won't be able to do something. You can find people to tell you you can't do something, because many of them don't want you to if they've failed at it. It'll make 'em feel bad. You can always find negativism. You can always find pessimism. You can always find these things. But the opportunities in this country today are profoundly better, and yet people do not grasp it. They don't grasp it. They don't understand it. In fact, people wondered why the news of the economy was not a factor in the '06 election. I think one of the reasons for that is people now just demand and expect a roaring economy. There's no appreciation for it. There is an expectation of it -- and when we have a downturn, that's when there's hell to pay. But no more will there be any laudatory congratulations for a perceived politician who has brought prosperity. (interruption) Well, when a Democrat does it, the media will trump it back up again and try to create -- but there's this expectation, our expectations have risen, which is fine, but coupled with that is the fact that people just have lost touch with how this country was built. We've got growing wages across the board. We've blown records out of the water in employment; life expectancy is growing every year.

We didn't just get here by accident. We got here by virtue of a distinct American culture, and all of this is happening while the Drive-By Media and some liberal Democrats are out there telling everybody how miserable they are. "It's time for a change. We can't continue to go on this way," and it burns me up when I hear this. It burns me up not for political reasons. (I mean, that's a given. ) It burns me up because I'm into inspiring people. I'm into motivating people. I'm almost a cheerleader for this country. All conservatives are. All we want is the greatest country we can have, and we know how we got here and we know how we going to stay here and how we're going to grow, and it isn't running around talking about collectivism and having the public have veto rights over CEO pay while Mrs. Clinton hitches rides on a corrupt business owner's jet while hoarding her own millions that she admits to having. That isn't what made the country great. Hillary said the middle class made the country great. I had this quote earlier today. Hillary said the middle class made the country great. I don't disagree with that, but I disagree with the tone and the implication of her statement. It's an attack on achievers. It's an attack on the wealthy.

I'll tell you what made the country great. It's the I who make this country work.

I don't care if they're rich, middle class, third our fourth quintile. It's the people that make this country great, not government, and not government policies, and not government regulations. It is the freedom that we all acknowledge we have that allows us to pursue whatever our dreams and ambitions are, as unfettered as any people in the history of civilization have ever been. That's what sets us apart from all other countries in the history of human civilization, and it's the liberals who are trying to look at this prosperity right in the eye -- which is right out in front of our faces every day -- and tell us we should be miserable, that it's unfair, that it's not right, that it's not going to last, and this all needs to be torn down. The fact that there are people who are running around panting with their tongues out (panting) lapping all that up, is a testament to the fact that if you browbeat people long enough and consistently enough with how miserable they are, and you blame other people for their misery and you get them thinking that a magical government program or a singular politician is going to come along and make them happy, you can sell it, and that's exactly what they've done. It flies in the face of what is right in front of everybody's eyes to see. Just like people have the freedom and the ability and the affluence to ignore the threats from Al-Qaeda and Ahmadinejad.

"Well, let 'em threaten. We're the United States! There's nothing is going to happen. We haven't had another attack since 9/11."

Why? Do you think that is, accidental? I guarantee you Mrs. Clinton hasn't had anything to do with keeping the country safe, and neither has John Edwards and neither has Barack Obama and neither has John Kerry. They have done everything they can to undermine this country's security by undermining our attempts at protecting ourselves in foreign theaters of war such as Afghanistan and Iraq.

RUSH: Something else I've noticed out there -- and I don't know if you have, but all of a sudden we have Barack Obama now entering the policy arena. He's not just uttering platitudes and bromides. Now he's got this universal health care plan, or this health care plan. They say Obama is getting serious now. His health care plan basically is raise taxes on the rich, and you have Hillary out there with her collectivism, and that's basically it. What are the other Democrats saying? I don't know what's Biden saying about anything, not that it matters, but I don't know what he's saying. I don't know what Chris Dodd is saying. I don't know what Bill Richardson is saying. But if those guys want to get noticed they better start talking socialism, because that's what the Drive-By Media is going to promote, because that's fair. "It's fair and it's equitable, Mr. Limbaugh. It's equitable! It's the only way we can survive as a nation with pure happiness and fairness is socialism, collectivism. We don't like those terms, but that's what it is." That's the voice of the New Castrati.
