American Idiots?

Brainwashed Lemmings?

A Hoboken411 reader thought you might find this video interesting – saying “it’s a great video capturing the essence of how the dumbed-down, clueless idiots known as the “American Sheeple” have no true idea of what is going on in our country or world, and could essentially care less as they site on their rumps and sip suds while they watch “Dancing with the washed up Celebrities…”

Do you think what’s depicted in this video is true? That it’s so easy for free-thinking Americans to get lulled into such lazy, non-independent thinking people?

i agree with one of the premises of the video, namely that most people are idiots who will believe anything they see/hear on tv.

what’s that, a snowstorm is a comin this way? better stock up on water/salt/shovels

oh no! swine flu! better get vaccinated quick

terror alert red? blue? defcon 4???

tiger woods did what?? let’s read about it some more!! (tiger woods was actually on the cover of the NY post more times than 9/11 – go figure! http://www.stinkyjournalism.org/editordetail.php?id=580)

im inclined to say that this isnt even about one party or one president trying to control everyone…but rather media trying to get more advertising $$$ by getting more viewers. and since the media knows that we, as a people, are morons, then they continue to feed us what we want, and we gladly trod on

This is an ironic post considering this site itself often regurgitates “facts” vomited forth by self-serving pundits who are highly paid to purposely misinterpret and exaggerate ideas in the service of furthering political (and ultimately personal) agendas.

It doesn’t matter which political party you’ve bought into, the personal motivations and agendas of the majority of ranking members (and their special interests) are quite at odds with that of the American people. And the people will continue to get screwed until they acknowledge that the current system is beyond repair and act to change it.

Unfortunately we live in such a culture of insecurity whereby Americans are so preoccupied with making themselves important and right and everyone else wrong at all costs, that they are easily manipulated into supporting the very social and economic power structures that are screwing them over in the first place.

United we stand and divided we fall; unfortunately, rather than becoming the united “melting pot” that we were taught about in grade school, we’ve become more and more polarized and splintered into separate groups hell-bent on winning moral, economic, and emotional victories against each other.

Don’t wanna be an American idiot.
Don’t want a nation that doesn’t know media.
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind fuck America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Where Everything isn’t meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
Well that’s enough to argue.

Well maybe I’m the faggot America.
I’m not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda.
And sing along in the age of paranoia.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isn’t meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
Well then that’s enough to argue.

Don’t wanna be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information nation of hysteria.
