(cue music) “Moon Rehberg…”


Over at Montana Cowgirl, it’s reported that Montana’s Lone Congressdude is scraping the bottom of the barrel to try and bolster public opinion in the wake of his refusal to avert financial crisis. His idea of credible journalism? The Washington Times- not really a bastion of anything but propaganda- founded and owned by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. From Wikipedia:

At the time of founding of the Times Washington had only one major newspaper, the Washington PostMassimo Introvigne, in his 2000 book The Unification Church, said that the Post had been “the most anti-Unificationist paper in the United States.”[8] In 2002, at an event held to celebrate the Times’ 20th anniversary, Moon said: “The Washington Times is responsible to let the American people know about God” and “The Washington Times will become the instrument in spreading the truth about God to the world.”[1]

Creepy.

Does Rehberg really think that none of us out here are following his offhand remarks? That we’re not checking his facts, sources and claims?

While we realize that the major newspapers aren’t known for being critical of The Congressdude, that doesn’t mean that the yokels back home are just taking his word for things.

We can’t afford to. Check it out.

    Sun Myung Moon has bragged about one of the main purposes of his propaganda paper – to gather intelligence for his movement.

    Sun Myung Moon:

    “In order to realize the world of peace which God desires, the following must be accomplished… With the Washington Times as Fourth, it has to take preeminence in the realm of media. With the Washington Times as the core, we are establishing preeminence in the American print media, a field of more than 1,750 American newspapers. By doing so we can include all fields of intelligence. Today we have in this area surpassed the liberal New York Times and Washington Post, and continually gaining important confidential information not only from America but also from other governments all over the world.” ( “Absolute Values and The New Cultural Revolution – True Love and the Unified World.” Sun Myung Moon Founder’s Address, Fifteenth International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences, November 28, 1986. J. W. Marriott Hotel, Washington, D.C.)

    I strongly suggest watching this 1991 panel of conservative former editors of Moon’s papers to learn what the WT is all about.

    How does Moon fund the multi-billion dollar losing intel front?

    One way is by swindling widows in Japan:
