If you read nothing else this week,
read this
op-ed article by Yeh Ling-Ling in the San
Francisco Chronicle
.

The Chronicle is the

leading liberal newspaper
in perhaps the most

leftist major city
in America.  Ling-Ling is a naturalized
American of the

Diversity Alliance for a Sustainable America.

The money quote: “Unless drastic
immigration reduction is part of the Schwarzenegger
administration`s action plan, the quality of life for
all legal residents of California will continue to
deteriorate.”

Liberal Elite Spin From
Time Magazine

The thing most feared by our ruling elites is
grassroots populism. For example, the fracas over
The
Reagans
.

CBS executives Leslie Moonves and Bela Bajaria hired
two militant, leftist homosexuals, Craig Zadan and Neil
Meron, to produce “The Reagans.” Zadan and Meron
had previously produced such propaganda as “What
Makes a Family”
on Lifetime, about a lesbian who has
to fight to get custody of a baby born to her
artificially inseminated partner when said partner dies
after giving birth. For “The Reagans,” they
produced exactly the obnoxious claptrap one would
expect.

CBS executives also picked Barbara Streisand`s
husband, James Brolin, to play the part of Reagan.
Streissand was on the set constantly, helping out her
husband with the

expected obnoxious claptrap
.

What was wholly unexpected by CBS elites was the
populist revolt against “The Reagans.” The revolt,
powered by the internet site

http://www.boycottcbs.com
, succeeded in getting CBS
to cancel airing it. This is news.

Now comes James Poniewozik of Time in a weird
attempt to recast this very interesting story as a
boring battle of elites vs. elites. Poniewozik never
mentions Michael Paranzino of Philadephia, the local
Republican who simply put up the web site

www.boycottcbs.com
. He claims that it was really
just a matter of the “clout” of unnamed Republican
“political operatives”
in “Guccis.” [Let`s
Spin One For the Gipper
,
November 10, 2003]

This is a reverse of the spin put on the Clinton-era
“Million
Mom March,”
where

Democratic insider Donna Dees-Thomases
 was

portrayed
coast-to-coast as a “mother who`d never
been politically active.”
By contrast, Paranzino is
a genuine

stay-at-home dad
, who started with $8.95.

Poniewozik`s weird spin is an attempt to obfuscate
the clear lesson of “The Reagans”: the growing power of
the

internet
to strip

elites
of their power to monopolize what is talked
about it. And the biggest issue

elites want to muzzle
is that of mass immigration.

Christophobia At The
Foundation For The Defense Of Democracies?

The research
director of the  head of the

Foundation for the Defense
of Democracies
,


Andrew Apostolou
, has made a foolish statement
slandering Christians. In an interview with Daniel
McCarthy of
The American Conservative
,
Apostolou
said: “Remember that the worst war crimes of the last decade
were committed by Orthodox Christians in the

Balkans
.” [
Most Favored
Democracy
By Daniel
McCarthy, November 17, 2003]

This is false on two levels. One,
Serbian war crimes were greatly

exaggerated
, as many have shown. Apostolou has clearly
sided with the

anti-Serbs
(the “Orthodox Christians” Apostolou refers to
are the Serbs) in this historical argument. But at least
there is something resembling an argument.

There is no serious historical
dispute, however, about what the worst war crimes of the
last decade were. That accolade belongs to the

Hutu massacre
of perhaps as many

as a million Tutsis in Rwanda.
No informed observer
believes the Orthodox Christian Serbs came close, even
if you believe the worst allegations now put forward
against them.
