For nearly two decades, the Cartoon Network has waged a 24-hour a day, 7 day a week, 365 day a year war on the minds of our nation’s youth. So it should come at no surprise that they would eventually get around to bashing our Nation’s “Founding Fathers”. Starting today, during the week that commemorates the 6 month anniversary of the “Tea Party March on Washington D.C.”, the Cartoon Network will be airing reruns of an episode of the popular children’s animated series “Johnny Test” entitled “Johnny Zombie Tea Party”, which can be found here:

In it, the show’s 11-year-old protagonist, Johnny Test is given a 500-word history assignment on the town’s “Founding Fathers”. Instead of reading up on the subject, Johnny steals a “replenish ray” from his genius twin sisters and takes it to the local cemetery with the intent of bringing the Founding Fathers back to life. Things go predictably wrong when the corpses are only reanimated to “half-life”.
The Founding Fathers are depicted as three blue skinned, drooling “Zombies” with simple minds and retarded mannerisms. Though they are supposed to be the Founding Fathers of the show’s fictional town of “Porkbelly”, they are an obvious smear on our Nation’s “Founding Fathers” as apparent from their 18th century garb and accompanying Colonial background music.
Instead of helping Johnny with his history report, the trio becomes distracted by their fascination with flushing toilets, television and vacuum cleaners. They steal the family car and head into town where they cause mass hysteria. Johnny assures everyone that “The Founding Zombies are just happy to be among the living and enjoy high top shoes and portable media”. Porkbelly’s Mayor calls an emergency Town Hall and warns that the Zombies will bring down property values. The townsfolk scream in horror at the prospect of being homeless and prompt the Mayor to call in the military–who flattens the town with missiles. One of the townspeople screams, “We’re homeless and they’re still alive!”
Johnny’s mother demands that he get rid of the Zombies. The authority in her voice gives him an idea. He goes back to the cemetery and reanimates the Mothers of the Founding Fathers who grab each by the ear and drag them back to the grave after reprimanding them with “You’ve had your time on this Earth, now let them have theirs!”
One of the common themes of this series, and in this episode in particular, is the marginal intelligence of males compared to females. Johnny’s twin sisters are feminist, scientific geniuses while Johnny himself is portrayed as a manipulative troublemaker who gets his way through blackmail and theft. This is consistent with the thinking of Cartoon Network founder Ted Turner, who is quoted as saying “Men should be barred from public office for 100 years in every part of the world… The men have had millions of years where we’ve been running things. We’ve screwed it up hopelessly. Let’s give it to the women.”
The Founding Fathers in this episode give an endorsement for the materialistic brain candy used to control contemporary society. They spend all their time on petty indulgences and show no interest in whether or not the freedom and liberty they fought so desperately to pass on to future generations has survived intact. The message is that things have vastly improved and that the world is much better off without the boring stodginess of old fools. Though this can easily be discarded by adults as lame, it makes an indelible impression on young minds who will equate images of our “Founding Fathers” and the “Tea Party” movement as something to be feared or at least marginalized.
This type of indoctrination-through-cartoons has a history that can be traced as far back as 1990 when Ted Turner launched “Captain Planet and the Planeteers”. This show was partially responsible for schooling the current crop of “greenies” and global warming activists who are so brainwashed that they can’t even shake their indoctrination off long enough to recognize the flawed science behind their thinking. The series centers around five ethnically diverse youths from around the globe who are given magic rings by Gaia, the “Spirit of the Earth.” Each ring has the power to control an element of nature. The kids use these powers to combat adult villains responsible for polluting the planet with smog, nuclear radiation, deforestation and toxic waste. When they can’t handle the job alone, they summon the aid of “Captain Planet”, a rainbow colored demigod with the combined power of all five. The intent of the series was to promote “earth worship” and to push the United Nations enviromental agenda. In each episode, Earth was always in peril and it was abudantly clear that man was the most serious threat to its continued survival. The series ran for two years just ahead of the 1993 “Club of Rome” document entitled “The First Global Revolution” which stated “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.” Turner himself is a staunch environmentalist who has donated billions to United Nations causes dealing with the environment and population control.
Certainly in the last ten years, Cartoon Network has been more blatantly subversive with their programming. In addition to “earth worship”, many shows promote paganism and the occult. One of the most disturbing examples of this is “The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy”, which centers on a pre-school dominatrix (Mandy) who cruelly subjugates and berates a young submissive boy (Billy). One day they happen upon the Grim Reaper, who has come to collect the soul of their sick Hamster. Mandy refuses to give Grim the hamster and offers to play a game for its soul. Mandy cheats and, as a result, wins eternal slavery from the Grim Reaper who is obligated to cater to her slightest whim.
The Cartoon Network is also notorious for its assaults on traditional family values. 2002 saw the debut of CODENAME: Kids Next Door. The popular series centers around five adolescents who run a spy network called Sector V from a high-tech tree house. Their stated mission is to battle the tyranny of parents, teachers, senior citizens and other adults who try to oppress them. Their arch nemesis is “Father”, a pipe smoking, clean cut adult who epitomizes the strong Fatherly image of a by-gone era. Other villains represent various things that children find objectionable such as spanking (Count Spankulot), going to the dentist (Knightbrace) and taking a bath (Mrs. Dirt). The show promotes eternal adolescence. Children and adults are portrayed as two completely different species that have nothing in common. Adults are looked upon as evil and untrustworthy. This serves as a primer for children to turn on their parents, spy on them and report their activities to the authorities. Bertrand Russell would be proud. In his book, The Impact of Science on Society, Russell postulated “The only remaining possibility of unauthorized propaganda is by secret whispers from one individual to another. But this, in turn, is rendered appallingly dangerous by improvements in the art of spying. Children at school are taught that it is their duty to denounce their parents if they allow themselves subversive utterances in the bosom of the family.” The show is also heavy on themes relating to mind-control and brainwashing. After a child reaches the age of 13, their memories are erased as they evolve into teenagers. The entire series is in the tone of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” where youth is glorified and the concept of family is considered pornographic.
The latest season continues this tradition of brainwashing with shows that are just outright violent. “Destroy, Build, Destroy!” is a live-action game show that pits two teams of youths in a contest to see what they can build out of things they destroy. To this end, they are supplied with real instruments of destruction like bazookas, rocket launchers, flamethrowers and actual explosives. The winning team gets a cash prize and is allowed to destroy the losing team’s creation. Sounds like an American military campaign, does it not? The entire show glorifies conquest, destruction and the plundering of wealth and resources. Rocker Andrew W.K hosts the show. Just one look at the cover of one of his albums should tell you that this is not the kind of person you want your son to have as a role model. And if that isn’t enough to convince you, read some of the lyrics to his songs:
Or how about…
You’re not my mom and dad
And even they watch their backs
Cause they know what I hate
Any rules that I can’t break
Its hard enough raising kids under normal circumstances. But when you have this level of brainwashing and indoctrination going on behind your back, you can almost be certain that future generations of our children be lost to “The State” and the one-world globalist agenda. Children are being taught, through television, that parents are their enemy. They are being schooled in anti-American rhetoric and historical fallacies. They are being urged to tolerate and engage in all manner of hedonistic fetishes. They are bombarded with images of pornographic violence and taught to embrace the thrill of wholesale slaughter. Girls are being trained to be whores. Boys are being trained to be soldiers. And with the way this country is headed, those may be the only two jobs left.
TURN IT OFF!
