Red Star editorial board throws in for America's enemies

Over the years we've heard our fathers complain about the "Red Star" or the "Star and Sickle", and the left-wing bias contained therein. There was truth to that, although we generally shrugged it off, chalking it up to the silliness we encountered from the left over the years. Liberals were for the most part harmless, amusing, and only a distant threat to the social order.

With the advent and development of alternative media, an awareness grew within the general public of the contrast between the facts and truth, and what we were being fed day-by-day from liberal publications such as the Red Star. Suddenly it became apparent that folks such as the Red Star editorial board represented a world view shared by a small, but vocal, minority of the "outsider" population. Our eyes were opened.

Like a cancer, liberalism metastasized over the last few decades from JFK's time, where a liberal would have been today's conservative, and the extreme left was in its infancy. The Red Star editorial board is the end result of the metamorphosis of liberals to radical leftists. (Philospher, writer, and lecturer Dennis Prager has been the standard-bearer of analysis of liberals and their transformation. An example is here). The agenda of the Red Star editorial board includes an inculcation of multiculturalism, redistribution of wealth, socialism, moral equivalency, and other leftist goals. The evidence can be found daily on the pages of the Star Tribune.

If you question these observations, today's editorial should remove all doubt. Rambix will not attempt to dissemble and comment on the piece, because no one can do it as well as Hugh Hewitt, which can be read here. There is much outrage, but that hasn't stopped the Red Star in the past. They fancy themselves martyrs for the "cause".

Frederick Hayek was omniscient in 1944 when he said in The Road to Serfdom: "And the whole apparatus for spreading knowledge - the schools and the press, radio and motion picture - will be used exclusively to spread those views which, whether true or false, will strengthen the belief in the rightness of the decisions taken by the authority; and all information that might cause doubt or hesitation will be withheld".

It's as if he was talking about our comrades at the Red Star, which will continue to manipulate the truth, suppress facts antithetical to its purpose, and carry the flag for its leftist socialist minions.
