The Whole Bag of Tricks: On Behalf of a Clandestine Power Elite, the Media Cartel Is Using Every Trick Available to Subvert Traditional Values. A Prime Example Is the Campaign to Legitimize Homosexuality. (Multi-Pronged Attack)


Jasper, William F., The New American


"All warfare is based on deception.... To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme skill." So wrote Chinese philosopher and military strategist Sun Tzu in his classic text The Art of War. A deliberate war of deception is being waged on America -- and on all Christian civilization -- by an internal enemy that intends to subdue us without fighting. The major media organizations represent the indispensable weapon our enemy depends on to deceive and subdue us. The preceding articles in this issue have detailed the media cartel's chief tactics of deception in this war. On many crucial battlefronts, however, the enemy brings all of these tactics together for a concerted and sustained assault.

One of the most striking examples of this is the insidious campaign to "normalize" homosexuality and its accompanying deviant behavior.

Only a few years ago, homosexuality was still "the unmentionable vice," a subject pointedly avoided in polite company. Today it is publicly celebrated and flaunted. In fact, homosexuality is rapidly achieving privileged, protected status, and the homosexual militants are pushing for even more radical objectives, such as repealing age of consent laws so they can legally prey on children. They have already won major advances in criminalizing all opposition to their perverted agenda with so-called "hate crime" legislation. They are well on their way to completely overturning our entire social, moral, and political order. The following abbreviated survey of the media's indispensable role in this "lavender revolution" is intended to help us to recognize, resist, and combat this deadly deception strategy.

Blackout

Contrasting the cases of Matthew Shepard and Jesse Dirkhising reveals a classic example of how the media employs the blackout technique. Virtually everyone in America has heard of Matthew Shepard, the 21-year-old homosexual college student whom two young bar thugs robbed and murdered in 1998. With the help of the Establishment media, the militant homosexual lobby turned Shepard's death into a national cause celebre. The broadcast and print media saturated America with overwrought coverage of the case and the demand for "hate crime" legislation. But almost no one has heard of Jesse Dirkhising, the 13-year-old boy who was brutally raped and murdered in 1999 by two homosexual men whom he trusted. Likewise, for 10-year-old Jeffrey Curley, whom two adult homosexuals sodomized and killed in 1997. The reason no one has heard of these cases is that they were intentionally spiked.

The media blackout was so blatant that the injustice even offended Andrew Sullivan, an open homosexual and senior editor at the liberal-left New Republic. "Unless you frequent rabid right-wing Sites on the Internet or read The Washington Times, you've probably never heard of this case," Sullivan wrote regarding Dirkhising. In a column for the April 2, 2000 issue of The New Republic, Sullivan revealed some incredible facts:

In the month after Shepard's murder, Nexis recorded 3,007 stories about his death. In the month after Dirkhising's murder, Nexis recorded 46 stories about his. In all of last year, only one article about Dirkhising appeared in a major mainstream newspaper, the Boston Globe. The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times ignored the incident completely. In the same period, the New York Times published 45 stories about Shepard, and the Washington Post published 28. This discrepancy isn't just real. It's staggering.

"So why the obsession with Shepard and the indifference with regard to Dirkhising?" Sullivan asked. He responded: "The answer is politics. The Shepard case was hyped for political reasons: to build support for inclusion of homosexuals in a federal hate-crimes law. The Dirkhising case was ignored for political reasons: squeamishness about reporting a story that could feed anti-gay prejudice."

The Shephard saturation/Dirkhising blackout provides a textbook example of the media strategy for "psychological attack" proposed by homosexual change agents Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen in their 1989 bestselling manifesto After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90's. …
