A Dose of American Truth
By Michael Emero / filmsforaction.org
Sep 20, 2016
 
Honest news flash: IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP, AMERICA.
 
"Normalized corruption, encouraged apathy, and corporate takeover of all media to kill journalistic integrity has effectively eliminated the spread of truthful information. We are kept conveniently ignorant and distracted by sponsored propaganda, fueling our useful idiocy of perpetual, pointless infighting with fellow citizens."
 
 
Honest news flash: OLIGARCHY IS DOMESTIC TERRORISM.
 
"The unethical moneyed 'elite' have subverted America into the most powerful, least accountable immoral death machine in the entire history of the world. Our corporatized, undemocratic for-profit puppet government is ready and willing to trigger WWIII just to stay in power- yet we fearfully and obediently remain busy serving them."
 
 
Honest news flash: OUR GOVERNMENT ISN'T REPRESENTATIVE.
 
"Instead of adopting the intentionally self-defeating divisive outrage of empty nationalism, why not employ ethical, patriotic activism? Or renounce those who blaspheme our hard-fought ideals of justice and equality? How about actually helping restore our country to something anyone but Hitler- or Hillary- could be proud of again?"
 
 
Honest news flash: SUPPORTING CORRUPTION IS UNAMERICAN.
 
"We've 'lesser evil-ed' our way into orchestrated mass Orwellian dystopia facilitating militarized capitalistic conquest. Our 'leaders' routinely acquire power and achieve their goals through fraud, deceit, and incentivized traitorous duplicity. Our original political, legal, and electoral systems are now just conveniently pay-to-play shams."
 
 
Honest news flash: HOPE DOESN'T ENACT CHANGE; WE DO.
 
"The only thing that has ever forced true policy correction in this nation is when millions of people say enough is enough, and unite together to restore the balance of power and accountability. That means bravery. It means civil disobedience. It means ending our indoctrinated habit of cowardly falling in line against our own interests."
 
 
Honest news flash: THE FUTURE IS ENTIRELY IN OUR HANDS.
 
"We've seen where the 'two party' tyranny gets us- a broken, violent society of greed that rewards and empowers sociopaths at the expense of its founding principles, struggling populace, and fellow human beings abroad. Our continued inaction frankly makes us all complicit to the horrors being perpetrated in America's tainted name."
 
 
Honest news flash: CEASE PASSIVE ACCEPTANCE, AND BEGIN ACTIVE DEFIANCE.
 
"The current sitting administration has proven that there is no ethical oversight or even recognition of our rigged elections. Instead they spew rhetoric of foreign blame and blatantly spend millions to 'adjust' public opinion, hiring trolls and manipulating social media. This is not our America, and absolutely nothing to be proud of."
 
 
Honest news flash: RESTORE OUR NATION'S HONOR BY EMPOWERING OUR OWN.
 
"All power corrupts- which is why common people retain a conscience, while the insulated and powerful lose theirs. This was the beauty and essential moral compass of the founding fathers' government By, For, and Of the People. It's now been hijacked and perverted, plain and simple. Those who denounce our ethics, denounce America."
 
 
Honest news flash: FREEDOM COMES BY REJECTING NORMALIZED OPPRESSION.
 
"It is our birthright to challenge authority when is is abused. It is our civic duty to disrupt and rectify injustice when those responsible for doing so become the perpetrators themselves. Our bastardized consumerist 'liberty' is worth nothing when it costs us our rights, freedoms, quality of life, moral high ground, and ethical responsibilities."
 
 
Honest news flash: WE ONLY FAIL BY LETTING OTHERS CONVINCE US TO STOP.
 
"For the first time since JFK, overthrowing this worsening fascist stranglehold is within our grasp. Every historical great in our history stands with us as we defend our right to have a future worth living, not just one to suffer through with decreasing hopes of survival. It's time to give ourselves and the world an America to believe in again."
 
 
BE THE CHANGE- CHOOSE INTELLECT OVER PROPAGANDA.
BE THE BRAVE- SPEAK WHENEVER OTHERS ARE SILENCED.
BE THE MEDIA- SHARE THESE TRUTHS TO AWAKEN OTHERS.
 
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” - FDR
