“So, you listen to me. Listen to me! Television is not the truth. Television’s a god-damned amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business. So if you want the Truth, go to God! Go to your gurus. Go to yourselves! Because that’s the only place you’re ever gonna find any real truth. But, man, you’re never gonna get any truth from us. We’ll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We’ll tell you that, uh, Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker’s house. And no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don’t worry. Just look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he’s gonna win. We’ll tell you any shit you want to hear.
We deal in illusions, man.
None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness. You maniacs. In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion. So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I am speaking to you now. Turn them off!

    “I’m mad as Hell! And I’m not going to take it anymore!!!”

    Thanks for posting this. It reminds me of a bumper sticker that was in vogue during the 90’s, and it read:

    Amen, and pass the ammo.

  3. Haven’t had commercial TV in my home for over 30 years. I have a tube, but it is only for DVD’s.

    Kinda archaic, eh? Gives me a lot more time for reading.

    The truth at last ! If only we could take everybody and force them to listen to this message, some might actually listen and understand.

    Not only cut off your pay TV service…. but stop paying to watch their product in the theaters, with video games (of all sorts), stop purchasing their ancillary products (plush-shit, Mickey Mouse stuff, toys, etc.), stop watching their professional sports events and stop going to their theme parks.

    FYI–6 major corporations control nearly all (as in ALL) of the newspapers, radio stations, movie studios, network television content, cable content and so forth. Several of these major corporations operate movie studios and two of them operate theme-parks (ABC Capitol Cities/Walt Disney and NBC/Universal Studios).

    Imagine is conservatives stopped going to Disneyland and Disney World (as they do like lemmings now)?! Imagine if 20% (or more) of their cash flow suddenly came to a halt?! Imagine if conservatives stopped paying to see Disney owned Marvel Studio super-hero crap in the theaters?! What if this suddenly dried up? What if NFL viewership and attendance dropped off another 10% from its now low point (down about 20% due to the anthem kneeling protests)? What if conservatives stopped watching the bread and circus on all levels pumped out by these globalist/communist sponsoring organizations?

    Answer: you’d kick a couple legs out from their tables, that’s what.

    Howard Beale was a fictional character who was mentally ill, and exploited by his employer for ratings. Much like modern school shooters.

    How sad.

    Turned the tube off 20 years ago when I decided that books were more interesting and cheaper. I’m not going to pay for cable to be brainwashed. Thanks for information that matters.

    Just my opinion, I believe this is part of the “strong delusion” mentioned in II Thessalonians 2:11 and surrounding verses. God’s Word is the only truth in this deception and in a world where truth and justice does not matter.

  11. They’re funded by the CIA, NSA, Homeland, FBI, ATF, and Military, nothing is changing unless you remove them. What we need to do is get people to move to getting their news from smaller websites/orgs that are proven right leaning (NOT REPUBLICAN). Fox News should be on that list too, they are just as guilty, the only difference is they say something Republican-y once in a while to sound like they’re on the right side, they aren’t, the last preacher of liberty on Fox was Judge Napolitano.

    My interest in television started dwindling in the 70’s, and died in the early 90’s when I realized it was (and still is) the one eyed prophet from hell spewing lies continually. Movie theaters rarely offer anything better. The last movie I enjoyed was “Woodlawn”, based on a true story in the city of my birth.
