Propaganda Terms & Identity Politics: Low Income Community

 

LIC

This ain’t no “low income community.” These motherfuckers are broke! Sugar-coating does not help, it only does more harm.

If you live in the US, have you noticed how in political discourse every possible demographic identity, real or imagined, has become its own separate (but equal!) “community”?

Well, I heard a new one recently. Apparently it has been in use for several years now at least, but I just heard this term last weekend: Low Income Community. When I heard those words spoken by a celebrity on TV plugging some new cause or charity my jaw hit the fucking floor. I didn’t know whether to laugh, scream or cry – or all three.

As George Carlin once said, “Smug, greedy, well-fed white people have invented a language to conceal their sins. It’s as simple as that.”

This is clearly a propaganda term invented to sanitize and compartmentalize poor people into just another political identity or market segment for the purposes of divide and rule.

Animated Soviet Propaganda – DVD set on deep discount!!

Animated Soviet Propaganda

This is a 4-disc DVD set of Soviet animation that is selling at a major discount by the retailer whose link is below. For those outside of North America make sure your DVD player, and even your TV (I think) is compatible with playing NTSC DVD’s.

At $7.00 you can’t beat this deal! These cartoons are entertaining and also great historical documents.

(You may want to skip the commentaries, though, as they are for the most part quite negative and from a very biased bourgeois anti-communist perspective.)

Seeing the government in Damascus as too far to the left, Washington has been trying to orchestrate a regime change in Syria since at least 2003

February 9, 2016

By Stephen Gowans

Documents prepared by US Congress researchers as early as 2005 revealed that the US government was actively weighing regime change in Syria long before the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011, challenging the view that US support for the Syrian rebels is based on allegiance to a “democratic uprising” and showing that it is simply an extension of a long-standing policy of seeking to topple the government in Damascus. Indeed, the researchers made clear that the US government’s motivation to overthrow the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is unrelated to democracy promotion in the Middle East. In point of fact, they noted that Washington’s preference is for secular dictatorships (Egypt) and monarchies (Jordan and Saudi Arabia.) [1] The…

Poland was the first country to sign a non-aggression pact with the Third Reich, after which Great Britain and France did the same. So why is the USSR still being accused of collusion with Hitler?
