The Propagandist magazine needs sponsors. Got money? Help us mobilize the massesPropaganda doesn't come cheap. We need your help. Please sponsor our cause (PayPal button's over to your right. $10, $15, $57,354, we'll take whatever you can afford).

We've been running this operation on a shoestring budget for some time; putting out propaganda to mobilize the masses of thinking conservatives and brass-knuckles socialists.

Our daily dispatches help freedom lovers take back the political conversation that has been hijacked by political extremists and an unholy alliance of unrepentant Stalinists, 9/11 Truthers and thuggish religious fanatics. We've got hundreds (on good days, over a thousand) readers a day through RSS, Facebook, Twitter and email.

We want to take that conversation to the next level.

That means:

  • More content by well-known paid pundits, journalists and activists to provide more coverage of the war on terror, human rights issues in the Middle East and Asia, bizarro elections in Latin America, political hot potatoes in the USA and more. Regular podcasts, articles and columns. Quality writers and podcasters don't work for free and we have to pay market rates. We're aiming for

Yet another invented term being used to silence criticism of Chinese state-owned firms and its billionaire elites trying to get away with the kind of shenanigans that ought to make true "anti-imperalists" blush with embarassment. Terry Glavin writes:

Beijing’s taxis have had their rear window cranks removed lest reformists take the advantage of a cab ride to heave out leaflets. Kite flying has been banned. The usual Internet firewalls have been so heavily armoured that even “18th party congress” searches are blocked. Uncounted thousands of petitioners, activists and lawyers have been rounded up, subjected to house arrest, confined in detention centres and imprisoned in labour camps.


Zhou Yongkang, the grimy security minister overseeing these obscenities, just happens to be the former boss of the China National Petroleum Corporation — banker to the vampires who run Syria, Tehran and Uzbekistan, and now, via its subsidiary Petro-China, an emerging power in Alberta’s oilsands. Small world, isn’t it?

You might adjust your position on the debate after reading The Conversion of a Climate Change Skeptic:

My total turnaround, in such a short time, is the result of careful and objective analysis by the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project, which I founded with my daughter Elizabeth. Our results show that the average temperature of the earth’s land has risen by two and a half degrees Fahrenheit over the past 250 years, including an increase of one and a half degrees over the most recent 50 years. Moreover, it appears likely that essentially all of this increase results from the human emission of greenhouse gases.

Venezuela's dictator-lite Hugo Chavez is telling his patriotic countrymen to drink locally-produced fruit juice instead of foreign soda. There is a disturbing subtext here that Ben Cohen discerns in Commentary:

In common with other forms of dictatorship, Chavismo is based on the idea that there is nothing more important than the relationship between the leader and his people — hence, Chavez believes it is his duty as well as his right to tell Venezuelans what to consume. No matter, then, that Chavez has yet to prove that the contents of "Uvita," whose manufacturer's mission is to "promote the socialist development of western Venezuela," are in fact healthier than the imperialist soft drinks he bemoans. Such detail is doubtless a bourgeois trifle.

The Canadian left has a problem. A big one.

It’s actually the same problem that the global left has at this moment in time: their model for governance, the profligate welfare states of Europe, are on the verge of dragging Europe – and with it, the rest of the world – into another Great Depression. They’ve convinced themselves that Europe – and their dreams of an all-encompassing welfare nanny state – are too big to fail. They can’t afford to allow Europe to collapse, because it will undermine virtually every myth on which they’ve built their political house of cards.

Enter Dan Gardner. He’s a standard bearer for the consensus media who’s never seen an opportunity to snipe at Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government that he didn’t like. And he seems to think that he found one in Europe’s “sovereign debt crisis.”

Gardner doesn’t seem to think that the European welfare state is the problem in Europe, and he found himself an article in The Economist that contends precisely that. The Economist article, entitled “The Proper Diagnosis: Profligacy Is Not the Problem”, essentially plays a chicken-and-egg game with the Sovereign Debt Crisis, and essentially obfuscates the role that the welfare...More >>

European diplomats are getting testy with the foolish colonial upstarts from Canada and Australia for having the audacity to suggest Europe could learn something from these two countries' successful economies.

EUROPEAN COMMISSION CHIEF JOSE BARROSO. "Pshaw! We obviously have nothing to learn from others about how to build a successful economy. Haven't you seen how many hundreds of billions of dollars we've already sent to Greece, Portugal and Spain? Why don't you shut up and go back to sending us beaver furs and timber or whatever it is that you do and we'll go back to... being European. Good day."More >>
