I ask you this, “Do you remember Eve’s role in the loss of Paradise?” Well, thanks to radical, second-wave feminism, Eve is again in bed with the devil and through these brainwashed women, Christian America is about to become Paradise Lost once again…
Ted Turner didn’t initially intend to become a radical, left-wing-nut, but under Jane Fonda’s influence, that’s
just what happened. He started his life just like thousands of other lucky American kids and although his life took a tragic turn, he recovered and not only did he outdo himself but he outdid his successful father as well.
Turner’s father had a successful billboard company called Turner Outdoor Advertising in Atlanta, Georgia. But tragically, he killed himself in 1963 due to some serious business setbacks. Young Ted was just 24. He struggled to overcome the potential demise of the business his father had worked all of his life to build. When he took over the business, it was worth almost $1 million, when he sold it, in 1996, to Time Warner, it was worth $6.5 billion.
Granted, by 1986, he had been married twice. His first marriage ended in divorce in 1963. Despite having two children, Laura and Ted, Jr., with his first wife, it appears the four-year marriage suffered irreparable harm as Ted reinvented himself after his father’s suicide. Turner married again in 1964. This marriage produced three more children and Turner remained married to his second wife, Janie Smith, for 23 years before divorcing in 1988. Turner went on to marry Jane Fonda in 1991. They, in turn, divorced in 2001 but not without a noticeable reversal of Ted Turner’s public and political persona.
I, myself, noticed a gradual change in his political leanings. Throughout his career he had always been in the public eye and was a very outspoken individual. Turner’s political leanings had always been conservative in nature. But, as time passed, his political shift to the left became more obvious.
In 1990, while dating Jane Fonda, he told an “American Humanist Association” audience that “Christianity is a religion for losers.” On another occasion he called Christians, who opposed abortion, “bozos.”
In 2001, he made national news himself, when during a staff meeting that included 300 of his employees, he called his Catholic CNN staffers, who were wearing ashes on their foreheads for Ash Wednesday, “a bunch of Jesus freaks” and then told them that “they ought to be working at Fox” (News).
Recently, his son Ted Turner, Jr., 49, while running for Congress in South Carolina, gave the world the answer as to why his father turned to the left. Ted Jr. publicly blamed Jane Fonda for the radicalization of his father. Ironically, Turner and Fonda divorced in 2001 when Fonda converted to Christianity. But, by then, the damage was already done. Ted was a goner.
Turner’s philosophical and political reversal is very unfortunate because he is still a force to be reckoned with, wielding incredible influence at home and abroad, most of which is now either unsavory or despicable.
Turner has contributed $3.5 million to America’s largest abortion clinic, Planned Parenthood. He supports taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand. His foundation finances efforts to defeat pro-life legislature.
In 1997 he donated $1 billion dollars to the United Nations for “social well-being, human rights and peace” while he supports the destruction of American children at home. He is quoted as saying, “I’m a global citizen. Slavery: my fault. Inequality: my fault. Population explosion: my fault. Global degradation: my fault. But, I think I can do something about all of it, but it’s wearing me out.” So now, in his state of exhaustion, he’s proposing that in his stead, that America should give the U. N. $62 billion dollars to alleviate poverty around the world! If he thinks that’s going to work, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I’d like to sell him.
In 2000, he had obviously gone over the edge when he signed an open letter published in the New York Times calling for the United States to unequivocally negotiate a worldwide elimination of nuclear weapons. Now there’s a well-thought proposal! Let’s just leave our country open to the rogue nations, like Iran, to eventually nuke us off the face of the Earth while we deliberately strip ourselves of the ability to defend ourselves. Turner also supported this same politically naive concept of disarmament through his production of documentaries, such as Avoiding Armageddon and, other PBS specials supporting his same pie-in-the-sky views.
Turner was also a big supporter of Communist Fidel Castro in Cuba, calling him, “one hell of a guy.” In 1999, his News Chief Executive Eason Jordan told an audience that Turner credited Castro with the idea to take CNN to the world and that Castro’s comments planted the seed for CNN International. This doesn’t surprise me in the least, as I have personally blamed CNN for the destruction of the United States’ stellar political reputation, since its introduction to the international television market decades ago. It has always been biased against the United States and anti-American in its reporting.
My conclusions are based on my personal experience with CNN’s International TV stations. Every time I traveled to Europe during the 1990’s the only English-speaking news organization available on TV was CNN. And everything I watched CNN it included another story highlighting the worst elements of American society. They deliberately strove to make America look worse than it actually was. And unless you lived in America, you would never be able to determine just how slanted and one-sided the reporting was.
And, I’m sure most Europeans, etc. believed CNN’s reporting because who would believe that an American company would deliberately chose to distort the facts to make their own country look bad. And yet, that’s exactly what CNN International did!
Their news stories made America look a though it were infested with evil people! It got to the point that I stopped looking for the station while traveling abroad because it would just make me furious to watch the lies, exaggerations, and BS the station routinely spewed about America to the international market. At the time, I thought the distorted image of the United States was being manipulated by the foreign correspondents. Now I know differently.
Today, I believe the chronically negative viewpoint with which CNN International routinely reported on the United States during the last 30 years, was a direct result of Ted Turner’s change of political heart, under the influence of Hanoi Jane Fonda. Thanks to both of them, the United States is now, unjustifiably, reviled world-wide.
It’s the Women, Not the Men!
