If You Were Brainwashed Into Believeing Others Were Brainwashed Would You Ever Realize You Were Brainwashed?


Scrolling around this morning I happened up this page:

The Brainwashing of My Dad   LINK<< 


Here is the description.




As filmmaker, Jen Senko, tries to understand the transformation of her father from a non political, life-long Democrat to an angry, right-wing fanatic, she uncovers the forces behind the media that changed him completely: a plan by Roger Ailes under Nixon for a media takeover by the GOP, The Powell Memo urging business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion -especially the universities, the media and the courts, and under Reagan, the dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine, and The Telecommunications 'Reform' Act signed by Bill Clinton.

As her journey continues, we discover that her father is part of a much broader demographic, and that the story is one that affects us all.

Through interviews with media luminaries, cognitive linguists, grassroots activist groups such as: Noam Chomsky, Steve Rendall, Jeff Cohen, Eric Boehlert, George Lakoff, Carol Wallin from STOP RUSH, HearYourselfThink, Claire Conner and others, “Brainwashing” unravels the plan to shift the country to the Right over the last 30 years, largely through media manipulation. The result has lead to fewer voices, less diversity of opinion, massive intentional misinformation and greater division of our country.

This documentary shines a light on how it happened (and is still happening) and leads to questions about who owns the airwaves, what rights we have as listeners/watchers and what responsibility does our government have to keep the airwaves truly fair, accurate and accountable to the truth.



 I don't think that Dad was the one that was "brainwashed" . Just sayin'


  1. Brainwashing” unravels the plan to shift the country to the Right over the last 30 years, largely through media manipulation.

    Eaux Reeaallyy?
    That vast right wing conspiracy to warp minds through media, media filled with rabid lefties? The same media unable to admit anything good about Trump?
    They don't even know the guilt they own, while they project the behaviors onto us.

  2. The Republicans are attempting to brainwash people through the media? They suck at doing it since the media is leftist/progressive.

  3. Sounds like more "projection" from a leftist. It's one of their favorite tactics. Acuse the opposition of what you are doing. You can pretty much be certain that ANYTHING the left claims their opponents are guilty of THEY in reality are involved in.

  4. ...but, but, but look at all of the awards its won. 'course all of those awards are from far left wing loon organizations, but that just makes them more prestigious. Oh, I've got this bridge...


  5. Change "right" to "left" and make it the truth instead of a Libtard/Marxist wet dream.

  6. If I see 'just sayin' one more time I think I'll lose it and start playing with matches. 'Just sayin' is beyond insipid It is irritatingly banal. Like the Valley Girls all grew up and went from a constant prattle of inane stupidity to the self ratifying arbiter of truth declaration: 'just sayin'!!!

    1. Relax Francis. This blog is about being fun, edgy, silly, naughty, sophomoric, cringeworthy, edumcational, banal, vapid, trite, insipid, unconventional and a good waste of time. I’m sorry if my boring use of that term drives you crazy.

    2. "Relax Francis". Love it. Right on FI

    3. Sorry Irish. I kinda lost it for a moment there but I'm better now. Think I'll mosey on over to some vapid FemmeFatale action and be...vapid. All better now. No really I'm ok. Seriously. What's with the strait jacket?

  7. Yeah Well, I reckon that the Number One Best Selling Things on AMAZON this week will be Cantonese, and Mandarin, Chinese Language Tutorials. After all is said and done; it's the damn Dirt Dems Who Sold us Out to the Highest Bidder. More specifically it's the Communist Chinese Who Really Won, Bought, this Election. Eh JOE? FREE SCHITTT For Everyone, Right Bernie? Drag'em out by the Heels, Screeched Pelosi. And the Sheeple all Smiled, for they knew that it would be good for them. It's Not That Baaad, they Bleated on the path to the Slaughterhouses. Geeettt into the boxcars for your safety they were told... I need a nap.

  8. You can tell its left wing shit by where they got all their awards.


  9. And yes, I do get all your humor which is why you are a daily.


  10. I hear stuff like that from my mom all the time. I'll tell her something, or show her something, and she'll say "if that were true, they'd say it on the news"

    she can't grasp that a news agency would have a political agenda. usually I tell her walter cronkite is dead, but even he was no angel when it came to this.

    today I commented wondering if the local news had a shot clock on the words "covid" or virus", because they'd say it every 14 seconds or so at least. even where it wasn't needed like during sports. "joe smith ran the sportsball for a touchdown, and as you can see everyone on the sidelines was socially distanced and wearing masks because of THE VIRUS". that whole last part was entirely unnecessary. but they had to bring up the virus to ratchet up the fear.

    that's brainwashing. when you can't even talk about a particular sports event without bringing up the unrelated topic.
