Before I only suspected, now I know
Lou Dobbs was one of the original anchors thirty years ago when CNN went from a 24-hour text-based headline summary to a full broadcasting news channel. He is one of the people largely responsible for their success in America and around the world. Now he has been forced off the network for the sin of telling the truth, even when it hurts.
His website, LouDobbs.com, contains a bit more information about his hasty departure, but no details. Unlike Gary Shapiro, Lou Dobbs is a man who truly understands tact, honor, and respect.
And that, is the real problem. Go read Gary Shapiro's Op-Ed at the Huffington Post. Compare that with any broadcast by Lou Dobbs when he interviews someone who opposes his viewpoints. The modern progressive movement, typified by Gary Shapiro, has become a trash-talking collectivist juggernaut that defames, humiliates, and insults anyone who dares to disagree with them. And then they turn around, like Gary Shapiro, and proclaim themselves the epitome of free speech and open-minded thinking.
This kind of doublespeak has long been typical of Marxist-inspired movements. The redefining of words so that "free speech" means "you can say anything as long as you don't disagree with me" while "freedom and liberty" mean "blinded by prescription drug abuse and reality television so you can remain dependent on an oppressive social order" is the pinnacle of the political correctness that they have been pushing for at least twenty-five years.
This must stop. People must be free to speak their minds, even when those minds are filled with hate. To preach hatred of tradition, condemnation of freedom, and glorification of tyranny while calling it "love and the hope of a more open society" is not the epitome of free speech at all. It is, instead, pure and unadulterated hypocrisy.
If this continues, the global dictatorship described in the Book of Revelation will be realized within a decade. I know they have convinced millions, and possibly billions, that they are not trying to bring about a global dictatorship, but this is a lie. I will even go so far as to state that this deception is in fact, the "big lie" the Book of Revelations itself speaks of. People will be promised freedom and granted slavery and none will realize they have been deceived until the anti-christ puts his mark on their forehead.
A word to the wise, the Biblical "mark on the forehead or the back of the hand" is a metaphor. It does not necessarily mean a physical mark on a body part, although it may come to that. It means that those who receive the mark are set aside as being proud to be the slaves of the one who owns them. That mark of slavery could be something as simple as an identification card carried in your wallet that must be produced in order to buy a loaf of bread or apply for a job. When America, and the world, reaches the point that an official identification card issued by a global government must be shown before any kind of interaction can be started, then we will have arrived at the point predicted by the Apostle John almost exactly two thousand years ago.
If you don't believe me, just wait another decade, and perhaps within the next four years.
