In Their Own Words: The Left-Wing Strategy to Deprive Americans of Media Freedom

by RogueOperator

Through BigGovernment, there is an outstanding website linked called “Yep, They Said It” that cites left-wingers explaining how they plan to deprive Americans of media freedom, and yes, usher in a socialist revolution.

It’s always preferable to cite the sicko left than describe it, when possible. So here is a sample:

  • “Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to necessarily be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist system itself.”

(The U.S. Media Reform Movement – Monthly Review, September 15, 2008)

  • “There is no real answer (to the U.S. economic crisis) but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”

(A New New Deal under Obama? (with John Bellamy Foster) – Monthly Review, December 21, 2008)

  • “Our job is to make media reform part of our broader struggle for democracy, social justice, and, dare we say it, socialism. It is impossible to conceive of a better world with a media system that remains under the thumb of Wall Street and Madison Avenue, under the thumb of the owning class.”

(Journalism, Democracy, … and Class Struggle – Monthly Review, November 2000)

And there’s much, much more.
