media brainwashing

Recommended Posts

Guest guest

Here's a list of media brainwashing, in western countries, to make people aware of it and so wake up (and become immune to it),  feel free to add your own observations:

1. to view all women (even young women/girls) as sex objects.  from a young age the media tries to put the idea in males heads that any female should be sized up for sexual attractiveness

2. for all women to view themselves are sex objects.  girls are taught from a young age that what others think of them and how much attention they get is a 'measure' of their 'worth'.   any woman who does not want to put excessive attention into her gender or sexuality is seen as an antisocial freak.  e.g. you can see how business wear  sold to women is more based on 'looking pretty' than practicality.

3. that black guys are attractive/virile/masculine- i don't know if this is because the white media feels sorry for them or else white- guilt, but this is another idea that is pure media fabrication.  i find it a little odd that 3/4 adverts on English tv depict white-woman/black-male couples.  if someone is going to say that blacks have larger anatomy well then even if that was true, it would still be 1. black 2. attached to a black guy.  so are you attracted to a person or a part of their bodies?  3. that wouldn't correlate to virility anymore than being tall would mean that someone would 'enjoy' sunbathing more.  

4. that having an extra-marital affair is benign/ desirable/ prestigious /normal.  to lust after a married person shows a severe lack of sense, and likewise for a married person to cheat on their own partner implies a clear lack of ethics.  there is nothing 'sexy' about stabbing someone in the back, betraying someone's trust.  you should think about the kind of character who would cheat on their spouse, and why then wouldn't they cheat on you?  do you think you are someone so wonderful that they couldn't resist?  the truth is they probably have insecurities,  as do you for chasing a married person in the first place.

5. that being a 'virgin' is wrong/ to be looked down on or as a freak.  firstly, virgins shouldn't have to label themselves or announce themselves as such, or else ' normal well adjusted well brought up person' would be a better title.  maybe non-married non-virgins should be the ones who label themselves- as trash, antisocial, degenerate etc.  (does not apply to rape victims, people genuinely taken advantage of and people who grew up in an environment where they were genuinely too stupid to know better).  

6. that the sex depicted on tv, in films, in music is accurate.  again false.  most artists/actors  are gays /lesbians, acting out an exaggerated scene written by poor writers, in front of a film crew.

You know....day by day....I am becoming more and more convinced that I'm wasting my time here on this forum. More and more.....with each new thread....it's like I'm in a dream and by mistake I've wandered onto the youth wing forum of the Hitler's Evangelicals Party 😮

Listen brother / sister (whatever gender you are).....your racial origins lay in a land (India) where programming, advertising, posters etc are a thousand times more 'sexualised' than they are in what you call "the west". You come from a land with adverts for 'Sexologists' all over the place and religious epics full of sex stories and even ancient temples depicting sex positions. In other words, whilst I don't doubt that your motives for saying what you did stem from a good moral place you placing the blame on the 'west' shows that you don't have a very mature understanding of who the real sex objectifiers actually are.  As for the need you felt to include the issue of black men in your post ?   Well, only you can explain where that has come from

7. The default "Asian" ethnic representation (in the UK and American productions) over the past few years in most forms of visual entertainment is a Muslim character. They are gradually becoming the shorthand for ethnic presence.

^thanks.  except when they went to attack the person and their culture, in which case they put a sikh. 

 

8.  that casual sex is a desirable thing.  how is performing intimate acts with someone you don't even know meant to be a desirable prospect?  this person could have the most revolting or disturbing habits for all you know.

9.  that getting drunk/smashed/whatever they call it is a desirable prospect.  where is the intelligence in losing control of your body and mind?   even more so if you are female (vulnerable to rape/abuse etc).  and you are paying money to make yourself feel ill?

8. In advertising, but also in general entertainment such as situational comedy, the father is often portrayed as an incompetent, out of touch, absent minded, or generally dim individual dominated by the feminine energy in the household. He's a figure of derision to varying degrees whose main purpose is to symbolise a demoralised and confused male in a world that values men for nothing but what they provide for their dependents in a material sense. 

On the other hand the mother is shown to be a wise, level-headed, well-organised general who ensures the family unit is kept ticking along as she merrily runs around putting out figurative fires or preventing any from taking place. 

In recent times, advertising and certain entertainment formats depart from this template of portraying adult males in this manner only when it's implied that the man in question is homosexual.

Good point. The marketing departments of big corporations and ad agencies are dominated by women (and homosexuals in the mix). I don't if I want to say "it's only natural" that they would portray men as idiots, but that's what they are in fact doing.

Media Sexploitation: The Hidden Implants in the Mass Media by Richard Zakia is an excellent book to understand this subject in a meticulous, logic / rational based manner. 

Ignore voices who serve to undermine any attempt to observe and note these occurrences. They want you to continue to labour under the shroud of ignorance; makes you easier to control so you continue stumbling around in a mental stupor where very little of life makes sense, therefore making you susceptible to all and everything directed at you for the purposes of keeping you asleep.

I truly believe that this one is actually a strategy to improve/widen the gene pool of the white population and avert inbreeding. If you look at the swing from colonial times to now, we've had a complete u-turn (by the English) about the notion that breeding within a community somehow preserves some genetic superiority, to the idea that some diversity in genes improves a society and protects against the negative effects of inbreeding. Those black people's genes have passed a fiery test when goray enslaved them (through genocide, starvation, and physical abuse etc.) that meant that only the seriously strong genes survived. And remember a lot of those genes were already widely seeded by white men (on the sly) on slave ships and plantations - I think they are trying to incorporate them back into their society? It's probably easier to assimilate them in too, compared to us brownies and our 'zany, archaic and exotic beliefs/religion/culture'? lol

10.  that having/ belonging to a "community" is evil and wrong and that people should 'rebel' against their community and destroy it so as to mix into the hodgepodge that the media controls and so approves of.  that you should hate your values, and you are "brave" to marry someone outside your community.   does it not occur to the sheep that run to do the bidding of the media in this respect, that to belong to a community and have a culture and values etc is actually a nice, civil thing.   and how is being mindlessly reckless and defiant something to be exited about and admire?

11.  that 'mixed race marriage' are elevated, and 'special'.  more like two people with low self esteem and desperate for attention.  would your partner still be interested in you (and vice versa) if you were from the same race/community/religion?  or are you/they just some 'trophy' to make you feel 'special'?  and please explain why modern society puts a higher value or pure-breed dogs as opposed to mixed dogs which are called 'mongrels' and given lesser value (even despised?).  so basically modern society has higher standards for dogs then humans...

12.  that watching pornography is 'normal' and 'acceptable'.  ok, maybe many a teenage boy (or girl) has curiosity about sex (that doesn't make it ok for them to watch it though), but aside from that what purpose does this serve?  some more points 1) the sex depicted is often exaggerated but also shown in a manner that is aggressive and demeaning to women 2) theres a statistic that 90% of female porn actors are previous victims of sexual abuse (hence the industry is exploiting women with psychological issues  and low self esteem for its 'entertainment'.). 3) would you like to see your own family members acting porn?  so isn't a little hypocritical to watch others engaging in it?  4)  there also seems to be a high suicide rate among porn actors, (https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/porn-industry-reeling-after-five-deaths-in-only-three-months/news-story/e779587b387f0ad2b3ae71ec45f0c631).  so by all means, enjoy this 'entertainment' then other people get so depressed making that they commit suicide...and you can observe for yourself what effect watching pornography has on your mind, your energy and your way of life.

14.  that a woman that has premarital sex is 'liberated' and 'independent'.  'liberated' from what exactly?  giving up your body for people who don't care about you to use, and getting off on the fact?  more like enslaved into base desires of someone else.   and what are your choice of partners?  muslims and blacks?  not exactly known for their great views on female emancipation.  not so much 'liberated' then as taken advantage of.  didn't 'media moghul' Harvey Weinstein admit that he was bitter that he couldn't get female attention before he had money and influence?  thats the kind of person who you are becoming mental slaves to.  i wouldn't call that 'independant'.  also, didn't the poster-woman for 'liberation' Madonna tell that she was raped at gun point before she came famous.  do you not think that consequently effected her views on her body and sex in a negative way?

15.  the concept of 'alpha male'.  this sounds like something from a David Attenborough documentary on moneys- "now the alpha male pisses on the tree".  why do you people then run after and admire this concept?  are you a monkey or a human being? and what exactly is an alpha male?  someone callous and insensitive with some kind of faux-confidence?  thats what impresses you?  wouldn't it be better to admire someone with virtues, or a good heart, or mental strength, or someone who really is indifferent to others opinions due to their 'gian' (wisdom).  why would you want to look up to some <banned word filter activated> who merely 'acts' tough?

Porn is a direct attack on the moral fabric of a society. The damage inflicted on the individual is so great, because it affects our perception of these matters on a psychological basis which then leads to a host of sexual dysfunctions when exposed to this nonsense on a long-term basis, i.e. only being capable of climax when solo; voyeuristic self-pleasure at the sight of what is essentially other people enjoying intercourse, etc. 

Also, it's worth noting that certain genres of pornography are deliberately  pushed by the makers of these productions in particular decades / eras in order to "program" society into accepting the degeneracy people see in these films, and accordingly encourage the recreation and normalisation of those activities in our everyday lives. With every successive generation the limits of what occurs in these films are pushed that little bit further until the mind can only boggle at the soul destroying rubbish people will seek in the future because of what existing outrageous forms of porn society has desensitized itself to in pursuit of the next big rush.

Do we know what the most popular genre of porn is at this moment? It's mother / step-mother and son interactions. That's the next taboo the degenerate social engineers of humanity want to bring into the open. 

A guess at the background of the producers of this degeneracy who are growing wealthy by pushing this gandh onto the world? 😅

Yeah, but genuinely strong, confident guys (not those putting on a act) are going to attract women like no one's business.  There are evolutionary reasons for this. Most females (not all) openly say this is something they find majorly attractive in blokes. That isn't to confuse this type of male with someone who is excessively overbearing, and a control freak - which can easily be done. I think most women want strong men that know how to challenge them over a pushover. Sure some women do prefer someone who doesn't challenge them at all, but many do.  

I think, in the current uncertain times, even more so than ever. That phase we had of homosexual driven media representations of 'metrosexuals' being some preferred model of 'masculinity' was only going to last so long.

Some people will get triggered but the porn industry is owned and run under jewish production and direction. They are hypocrites of the highest order with a wish to destroy all other cultures and countries so their zionistic fantasy of world control and domination comes about. Does Israel recognise the multi genders, homosexuality, fornication or access to porn for their people? Not really.

this argument implies that you admire blacks and their genes?

the native white populations of England are already pretty diverse (celts, romans, vikings etc).  they don't marry their siblings or cousins (so no inbreeding).  a certain percentage of whites also have genetic immunity to the HIV virus (not known amongst non-whites).  non-whites have higher rates of heart disease, diabetes, and vit d deifiencey.  so your 'scientific' argument about blacks having robust genes is nonesense.  also if this was about genetic diveristy, you would think the scientific establishment would be promoting it, not the media.

also why don't they show as many white male- black female couples?  and if whites want to admire blacks, that is their choice, but why force it on other groups?

    • Sounds like she should be on trial in uk to me.   
    • @GurjantGnostic what do you think?   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-56246511 The mystery American woman wanted in the UK By Tara McKelvey Vienna, Virginia Published 3 hours ago Share Related Topics Harry Dunn crash IMAGE COPYRIGHTMEGA AGENCY Anne Sacoolas, a US citizen, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving in the UK, but returned home under the protection of diplomatic immunity. That doesn't mean she's escaped accountability. In August 2019, Anne Sacoolas collided with motorcyclist Harry Dunn while driving on the wrong side of the road in the UK.  The 19-year-old was taken to hospital and later died. Sacoolas returned to the US, claiming diplomatic immunity, and an extradition request was blocked. But a US judge, TS Ellis, has said she must face the music, at least in civil court. He ruled last month that a lawsuit filed in the US state of Virginia by Dunn's family could go forward. They are claiming wrongful death. On Wednesday, Judge Ellis said the family could also pursue a damage claim against Sacoolas' husband. She was driving his SUV when the collision occurred. Judge Ellis chastised Sacoolas in a court teleconference last month: "Accepting full responsibility doesn't mean you run away." Ellis is a conservative judge, known for rulings that protect the government, especially the intelligence agencies. So his criticism of Sacoolas, and his decision to allow the civil claim to proceed, were surprising. Sacoolas was charged in the UK with "causing death by dangerous driving", but has remained on US soil.  IMAGE COPYRIGHTJUSTICE4HARRY19 image captionHarry Dunn died in hospital after his motorbike was involved in a crash outside RAF Croughton The case has created tension between the two countries, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying this month his government would do "whatever we can to get justice" for Dunn.  Harry Dunn's mum appeals to Joe Biden 'It seems like only a few days since I held him' And the decision to allow her to escape justice in the UK has infuriated the Dunn family and their supporters, who have made direct appeals to the US government to have her sent her back to Britain.  State department officials say she has diplomatic immunity, a rule that dates back to the 1961 Vienna Convention protecting diplomats while they are working abroad. It was a privilege she was granted as the wife of a US intelligence officer, working in Britain for the US embassy. Sacoolas' lawyer said she has taken responsibility for the collision, which occurred near RAF Croughton, the air force base in central England where her husband worked.  IMAGE COPYRIGHTAFP VIA GETTY IMAGES image captionFloral tributes mark on the roadside near the collision In a statement released through her lawyer, she said she very briefly was instinctively driving on the wrong side of the road when the crash occurred, and did everything she could to help Dunn. The Dunn family wants her to face trial in the UK. So does British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who said letting her stay in the US, instead of returning to Britain for trial, was a "denial of justice". She has not, however, escaped justice entirely. National security lawyer Mark Zaid says the federal court in Virginia's Eastern district, where Judge Ellis presides, is the worst possible venue for those who are fighting the intelligence agencies: Ellis is "incredibly pro-CIA". For that reason, the judge's criticism of Sacoolas, and of the government, was unusual, says Zaid: "Folks should really pay attention." Sacoolas, 43, grew up in Aiken, South Carolina, and graduated from University of South Carolina. By 2003, she was living in Virginia, according to a wedding announcement in her hometown newspaper. She studied psychology and was "worldly, sophisticated", says an old friend, Aaron Howard, who met her while he was tending bar: she drank negronis, a gin cocktail. media caption'It's just another hurdle' Harry Dunn's parents say Her house in Virginia was set back from the street, filled with sturdy, childproof furniture, exercise machines and books about espionage: a copy of Peter Maas's Killer Spy, a book about a CIA mole, Aldrich Ames, sat on a shelf. But Sacoolas' occupation has been a bit mysterious.  Her lawyer, John McGavin, said during a hearing last month that she worked for a US "intelligence agency", and that this had been "a factor" in her decision to leave the UK after the collision.  Then, a moment later, he corrected himself, saying she worked for the US State Department.  When the judge asked whether her job at the State Department was cover for her intelligence work, her lawyer said he did not have that information. Timeline: Events after Harry Dunn crash death Sacoolas, her husband and their three children live in northern Virginia, a place with ornamental shrubbery, wide streets and American flags. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters are located here, and many of Sacoolas' friends and neighbours have jobs that are similar to the ones the couple hold - they work for the government, and for the intelligence services. Sacoolas' diplomatic immunity has set off a debate in the US, and within the intelligence services, about the sweeping powers of intelligence officials and their families. The immunity is meant to protect officials from false charges by a hostile government. The UK is an ally, though, and many were surprised when she left and avoided trial. IMAGE COPYRIGHTGETTY IMAGES image captionFamily spokesman Radd Seiger, flanked by Harry Dunn's parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn Under former president Donald Trump, federal officials defended her in a forceful manner.  A spokesman for Dunn's family, Radd Seiger, recalls the family's visit to the White House in 2019. They were asked to meet with Sacoolas, who was waiting nearby. They refused.  Before they left the West Wing, Seiger says then National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien told them: "She's never going back".  Seiger and others thought the situation might change with the new president, Joe Biden. So far, it has not. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tells me that she has been following the Sacoolas story on the BBC, but deferred questions about the case to the State Department. State Department spokesman Ned Price says their position is clear: Sacoolas has diplomatic immunity, and their decision is "final". Diplomatic immunity 'sacrosanct'  The US defence of Sacoolas has come under increasing scrutiny. Lawyer Zaid says: "We [the US] obviously have full faith in the British legal system, so it's somewhat shocking that we up and ran." "Diplomatic immunity is not meant to shield our people from criminal or negligent activity. It is supposed to protect our diplomats from a hostile foreign government." A former acting general counsel for the CIA, Robert Eatinger, says he understands why the officials have held the line. If they made an exception for Sacoolas, he says, it would set a precedent. Diplomatic immunity is "one of the things that the US considers sacrosanct," he says, adding: "Once you've waived it for Mr So-and-So, it opens up other issues." IMAGE COPYRIGHTAFP VIA GETTY IMAGES image captionThe CIA headquarters is located in Langley, Virginia The officials may have good reasons for their decision. One possible concern is that the US wanted to protect operations - a trial could expose details of intelligence work. Yet the waiver can still seem wrong to people.  "There's an understanding at one level," says Eatinger, formerly of the CIA. "But at the other level, the human level, this just seems unfair." A former CIA officer, Ilana Sara Greenstein, says the decision to grant diplomatic immunity reflects a certain mindset within the industry. "There's a little bit of the God complex," she explains, describing the culture of the agency. "People walked around thinking: 'We can do what we want.'"  In her view, diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas reinforces this belief. 'She has to accept responsibility'  Today, Sacoolas's Virgian home is rented out, and she is living elsewhere while the civil case makes its way through the court. One breezy afternoon last week, Jerry Haskins, 70, was next door to her old house. The road smelled like pine, and whitetail deer roamed through back lots. He looked down a long driveway, pointing to a spot where he first met her.  "She was friendly enough," he says. "She walked up and introduced herself. I told her: 'Nice to meet you.'" Today, he shakes his head.  "She has to accept responsibility," he says. "Why didn't she stand trial?"  Another neighbour, an IT expert who was striding past her house during his regular, mile-and-a-half walk, says she should have faced the consequences, rather than head home. "You own it up," he says, then continued on his way
