Aggressive Propaganda

Many in the National News Media only reports  the news it wants you to know. This kind of reporting can be classified as subtle propaganda. For example, columnist Dan Savage is described by Time Magazine as, "the founder of the ‘It Gets Better’ project — a series of web videos devoted to helping victims of bullying" when in fact they know that this is not the whole truth of the matter. According to the It Gets Better Project's own web-site, the project "was created to show young LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better." Even Wikipedia got this right, "In 2010, Savage and his husband [sic] Terry Miller began the It Gets Better Project to help prevent suicide among LGBT youth."

While the many in the National News Media engages in subtle propaganda, the LGBT and like organizations, promoting their insidiousness in society are much more aggressive in their propaganda. Focusing, in a speech to a group of high school journalists in Seattle, on what he called the “hypocrisy” of Christians, Savage said:
“We can learn to ignore the bulls— in the Bible about gay people… the same way we have learned to ignore the bulls— in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation. We ignore bulls— in the Bible about all sorts of things.”

One of the attendees, Rick Tuttle, a journalism advisor from Sutter Union High School in California, told Fox News his students were surprised that instead of an anti-bullying message, they received “a vulgar, profanity-laced attack on Christians.” The event’s organizers, the National Scholastic Press Association and Journalism Education Association, later apologized. How ironic that no one stood up against the bullying tactics at an anti-bullying event. I guess, better to apologize than to confront wickedness when it occurs. Savages' rant is a form of aggressive propaganda.

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution" (2 Tim. 3:12).
