    It just is really unnerving how much power google has over our lives now. Its almost like we are living in a mundane version of Shadowrun and the Corps are becoming the new governments.

    I fail to see how this shows power over our lives.

    I also don't think it is a stretch to call this movie propaganda. But I think a bunch of recent movies are no different, some better than others.

    Odds are it IS propaganda but I dont need anyone telling me what I can or cannot see and try to restrict access to it.

    If their is no obvious lies or misinformation can it be accurately labeled propaganda? From what I understand it tells this woman's actual experience and progression on this issue.
    Perhaps if someone's ideology wasn't dependent on facts, but rather ran on a anti intellectual fundamentalism driven by emotion, they would see it as propaganda.
    I would be interested in someone's honest take on this movie that isn't pro life but is brave enough to objectively give a assessment.

    That they tried to do it in the first place is alarming. They are a powerful entity for the delivery of information. Their continued twisted bias is very alarming.

    It was. Media made for the express purpose of furthering a political point is the definition of propaganda.

    “The spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person.”

    Where’s the controversy?

    So Google calls a propaganda film propaganda, conservatives have a bitch-fit, Google responds by relabeling, it, and now conservatives are throwing an even bigger bitch-fit.

    They should have just left it as "propaganda." Changing it only made it worse.

    From the article.

    "What about the movie ‘Obvious Child’, which Planned Parenthood heavily promoted? Or any movie by Michael Moore,” Johnson said. “Why aren’t those labeled propaganda?"

    Also what about anything made by Al Gore? Should it be labeled propaganda?

    Sure it should be. That’s just the definition of the word. People shouldn’t get insulted when words are used in accordance with their definitions.

    No. Not staying up tonight. Should be good fights, though.

    Google literally indoctrinates its employees to hate white people.

    I'm in the pro-choice camp, but I absolutely think government has a role to play in protecting unborn fetuses. Ban after second trimester is more than reasonable imo.

    Triumph of the Will is definitely a piece of history that should be studied, and like others have said, I wouldn't be surprised if this anti-abortion film is a deliberately misleading film, but it has every right to push its agenda along with all the other movies that hold a bias, doesn't it? And according to postmodernist theory, since that is guiding philosophical platform for contemporary leftists, isn't that....everything?

    Yes, yes it is. That's literally what postermodernism teaches. Every book, poem, work of art, and piece of journalism, whether it is an editorial or not, reflects the bias/identity of its author. Ergo, everything is propaganda.

    You checkmated yourself, libs. Now put Alex Jones back on.

    Bzzzzzt

    I'm sorry. Thank you for playing, but that is a strawman. Better luck next time!


    But thanks for so generously, along the way, conceding that the Nazi film is clearly a historical thing at this point, and that the abortion film is deliberately misleading (and relevant to today).

    You know how much we here in the War Room love concessions. Sweet, sweet concessions.

    The rotten tomatoes score between critics and sudiences are quite stark.

    If you made a movie about a guy who watched two girls one cup but he was a gay black dwarf whose boyfriend was grossed out by the clip it would get 99% fresh from critics
