Another of Obama's radical appointees

The Old Media wholly ignored the story, but one of the extremists that Barack Obama appointed as a so-called czar in his government had to step down when the full extent of his un-American radicalism was exposed on the Internet. Obama's "green czar," Van Jones, resigned when it was revealed how anti-American his rhetoric was not to mention his membership in a Marxist organization. But Van Jones isn't the only far leftist that Obama has tried to foist on this country in places of influence.

We've been hearing lately about the radical homosexual agenda of Obama's "safe schools czar," Kevin Jennings. When he was a school teacher, Jennings once admittedly abetted a sexual relationship between a teenage male student of his and an adult man. He did not report this molestation, but smiled and advised the poor kid to "use a condom."

There are several other examples of Obama's radical appointees, some of whom have already had to leave their positions, and lately we've seen another example in Obama's FCC "diversity czar," Mark Lloyd.

On October 8, Glenn Beck reported that Mark Lloyd had co-authored a paper titled "The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio." This slanted paper whines that AM talk radio is dominated by conservative views and suggests that liberal views should be forced upon the talk radio industry.

That left-wing idea, of course, is bad enough, but the group that Lloyd was working with to have the paper published shows ties to left-wingers, out right Marxists and other haters of this country and that connection should have disqualified Lloyd for service in the federal government.

Lloyd published his report with a group called The Center for American Progress and the Free Press both headquartered in Washington D.C. These groups claim to be "nonpartisan," but that belies their leftist ideologies.

For instance, founder of the Free Press, Robert W. McChesney, has said some pretty harsh stuff against the U.S.A

For instance, at the end of September of 2001, right after the Twin Towers fell, McChesney said that the United States was the, "leading terrorist institution in the world today."

In February of 2009, McChesney recommended that capitalism be "dismantled" in the U.S.A. It is typical communist boilerplate.

    In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles. This is something that the great majority of the population will undoubtedly learn in the course of their struggles for a more equal, more humane, more collective, and more sustainable world. In the meantime, it is time to begin to organize a revolt against the ruling class — imposed ceiling on civilian government spending and social welfare in U.S. society.

A November, 2004 interview conducted by one Tanner Mirrlees for a magazine called "Relay, a Socialist Project Review," McChesney called advertising "capitalist propaganda" and proposed the government "limit" it and "perhaps even eliminate it."

    Advertising is commercial propaganda... We need to do whatever we can to limit capitalist propaganda, regulate it, minimize it, and perhaps even eliminate it.

McChesney has also taken the lead in pushing for a government bail-out of the newspaper industry in order to take control of the news message.

And these are the sort of people that Obama's "diversity czar" surrounds himself with and he isn't the only one in Obama's administration that does so. Sadly, the Old Media completely ignores the anti-American ideas being spouted by Obama's so-called czars and their friends.
