Cold War mythology made new by hope n'change

Oleg Atbashian is some kind of genius. Born in the ex USSR, he's impossible to fool with leftist propaganda. His sense of humor leaves one defenseless. Read the whole series.
This article concludes,
Evidently, if President Obama didn’t share these received views, he wouldn’t have felt the need to apologize before the world for America’s alleged wrongdoings " a gesture that could only reinforce such stereotypes. If his policies weren’t driven by these tenets, he wouldn’t be using the powers of the U.S. president to prop up the forces that oppose America’s founding principles of liberty while denying support to those who want to live by such principles.

The reason many Americans haven’t realized it yet is that most media coverage is also born of the same old yellowed clichés.

And yet no media bias can obfuscate the fact, clearly demonstrated by events in Iran and Honduras, that even in the absence of U.S.-led conspiracies, anti-American tyrants are still not welco

Generated in the depths of KGB think tanks, the Cold War-era propaganda template is comprised of the following linked axioms:

1.    Socialism is “progress.”

2.    Aversion to “progress” is a sign of outmoded backward thinking.

3.    All forward-thinking people are leftists.

4.    Leftists always speak for all people.

5.    People always unanimously support leftist leaders.

6.    Leftists are always under assault from the well-organized capitalist enemy.

7.    All workers and peasants hate capitalist exploiters.

8.    Armed resistance to a leftist government can only conceivably be staged by CIA agents in the service of American imperialism.

9.    Capitalists engage in relentless anti-socialist propaganda, subversion, and sabotage; they will commit any crime in order to kill hope and prevent the masses from liberation.

10.    The dying non-socialist sector of the world is run by a criminal conspiracy of capitalist oligarchs operating from the United States (and sometimes from Israel when appropriate).
