The NPR Lugenpress Continues with their Yellow Journalism on the Dorrs

I just finished listening to National Pinko Radio (NPR) latest yellow journalism hatchet job on the Dorr Brothers and their second amendment pro gun activism. Like the previous three installments NPR uses innuendo, subtle mocking, interviews with enemies of a basic Christian world and life view as well as interviews with folks who left basic Christianity angered by its “failure” as experts or as people with inside baseball knowledge on the alleged worldviews of the Dorr Brothers. Chris and Lisa of NPR are subtle about their yellow journalism. Their yellow journalism is not the screaming headlines of William Randolph Hearts but instead they offer the kind of yellow journalism that works by misinformation, disinformation, guilt by association, and not giving the context that would help the listener understand the matters asserted. In other words Chris and Lisa of NPR are giving just one more version of Lugenpress journalism.

The NPR vaudeville program opens with spotlighting the Dorr Brother’s Father (Paul Dorr) burning library books. Mr. Dorr made a bonfire of four children books teaching little children the normalcy sexual perversion. Mr. Dorr was taking a page from the students at the Berlin School of Physical Education [Hochschule für Leibesübungen] who, in 1933 raided the Institute for Sexual Research [Institut für Sexualwissenschaft] in Berlin plundering its library and then burning the perverted books on perversion as collected by the sodomite Jewish physician Magnus Hirschfeld (1868-1935). Hirshfeld, like Mr. Dorr’s library in Iowa, was devoted to advancing the sodomite agenda while fighting for the normalizing of sodomy in the social order. That the Elder Dorr had to burn children’s books mainstreaming sexual perversion of the worst kind, proves that the burning of Hirschfeld’s books didn’t stop the sodomite agenda.

NPR by opening with the Elder Dorr is seeking to establish a “guilt by association” narrative between Father Dorr and the Dorr Brothers. But what guilt upon the Dorr Brothers is Chris and Lisa seeking to establish? Is it the guilt of the Dorr Brothers being opposed to four books all sharing the same theme as one of the books titled, “Two Boys Kissing?” Now, the Dorrs know their own business but were I the Dorr Brothers I would go on the public record of supporting the burning of children’s books that teach our children the normalcy of “Two Boys Kissing.”

Chris and Lisa of NPR, right out of the gate, tell us that they are all good with books for children on public library shelves teaching 4-5 year olds on the glories of sexual perversion as a lifestyle and that somehow the Dorr Brothers are terrible people because their Father burned books seeking to recruit little children for the sodomite lifestyle.

Next on this vaudeville broadcast Chris and Lisa of NPR admit that it doesn’t look like the Dorr Brothers are getting rich off their second amendment activism and then admits there must be more motivating their activism than merely getting rich. Chris and Lisa of NPR even admit that the Dorr Brothers really are not making that much money when you consider all their expenses. This admission comes after the first three episodes where Chris and Lisa National Pinko Radio was nudging and pushing their listeners in the direction of concluding with NPR that the Dorr Brothers were grifters just interested in making big bucks conning people out of their monies. One is left asking; “Which is it NPR… Are the Dorr’s just grifters doing their work just to get rich or are they principled men who believe that their work is part of setting the world right?

NPR practices guilt by association. First, as we saw already, they seek to tar the Dorr Brothers with the putative guilt of their Father who burns children’s books which seek to recruit little children into the pervert lifestyle next Chris and Lisa of NPR seek to impugn the Dorr’s with the alleged administrative failures of Patrick Parson’s Georgia gun owner’s group. Chris and Lisa don’t prove that Parson’s organization is illegitimately operated but they do what Lugenpress Journalists typically do inasmuch as they subtly engage in innuendo about improprieties of how the organization was administered. And then on top of that Chris and Lisa of NPR are seeking to paint the Dorrs with half baked innuendo against Parson. It’s classic Yellow Journalism that even Ida Tarbell would be proud of.

Next, NPR in this broadcast exposes their hostility to the kind of Christianity that was de rigueur and normative just three generations ago. Chris and Lisa subtly mock the idea of “advancing God’s Kingdom by the Law of God,” when it is the case that most American Christians of three generations ago would not have found that idea particularly odd. For Generations Christians would sing, “Onward Christian Soldiers,” with the lyrics,

1. Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See his banners go!


Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.

2. At the sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory.
Hell’s foundations quiver
At the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise.

3. Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
Where the Saints have trod.
We are not divided;
All one body we:
One in hope and doctrine,
One in charity.

4. Onward, then, ye people;
Join our happy throng.
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song:
Glory, laud, and honor
Unto Christ, the King.
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.

In the end this NPR vaudevillian program is just a hit piece on historic Christianity with the Dorrs as the center of the bullseye. It is all very disingenuous.

Chris and Lisa of NPR can’t let go of the Paul Dorr brush intending to tar his sons with the brush. Chris and Lisa, the NPR Lugenpress twins, complains that Paul Dorr has built his career on stopping the building of Government schools. What Chris and Lias don’t mention is that people across the political spectrum agree that the Government schools are a wreck. Why wouldn’t anyone in their right mind want to see an end to Government schools? NPR interviews some school superintendent who has been repeatedly frustrated with Paul Dorr’s success in squeezing money out of local taxpayers for new school building. That the school superintendent remains frustrated and angry at Paul Dorr and so misrepresents Paul Dorr’s tactics at stopping the tax increases should be no surprise to anybody but Chris and Lisa (the Lugenpress twins) act like the superintendent’s characterization of Paul’s methods should be taken at face value.

The Lugenpress twins (Chris and Lisa) next go after the alleged evils of Reconstructionism which they suggest is the Worldview belief system of the Dorr Brothers and Father Dorr. Allow me to say here that Reconstructionism is nothing but vanilla Christianity. It is the Christianity of those who take seriously that Jesus Christ is Lord. Now, that Chris and Lisa and countless other “Christians” might find that alarming is a surprise to nobody who is familiar with the state of the modern church in the West. NPR suggests that Reconstructionism is fading as if that is a reason to no longer be a follower of Christ.

NPR defines Reconstructionism errantly offering that Reconstuctionism believes that Christ won’t return until Christians reconstruct all of life so that all the world is Christian. Actually, what Reconstructionists actually believe is that Christ won’t return until the Spirit of Christ reconstructs all of life so that His already present spiritual Kingship is seen more and more in the world over which He is King. Christ will not return until the nations of this world become the nations of our Lord and His Christ. The Spirit of Christ will accomplish this.

On this score one observes that NPR has no problem with sodomites and assorted sexual perverts having successfully reconstructed social orders in the West for the last 100 years or so. If it is sauce for the sodomites to successfully reconstruct why is it not sauce for the Christians under the command of Christ to seek to reconstruct? NPR hates Christ and it hates Christianity. They have no problem with our current sodomite reconstructed order but are having the vapors over the thought that Christ will reconstruct all of the World so that the nations of the world become the nations of the Christ.

NPR decides they need an expert on Reconstructionism in order to understand Reconstructionism and so they pull in some unknown philosophy professor who teaches at some never heard of University who just so happens to have an ex-spouse who was a Reconsturctionist. This person is someone who would be fairly labeled a hater of Reconstrucitonism and that is heard in her incoherent commentary.

NPR next takes the simplest of ideas that Government is a term that applies to many different jurisdictions and tries to turn this simple idea into something sinister. Futher this lugenpress outlet gives dark hints by the language they use that Reconstructionism is a cult. This is ironic given that NPR itself is a cult organization as seen in the way they twist everything that isn’t part of and doesn’t belong to their cult or Weltanschauung. This habit of demonizing those outside your circles, which Chris and Lisa of NPR does in spades in this interview, is a mark of all cults. It is done in order to keep the NPR cult followers from falling into the darkness of whoever they are targeting who is not a part of their cult. David Koresh did this. Jim Jones did this. Brigham Young did this. And NPR in this report is following this cult practice.

Next, by way of interview with the embittered philosophy teacher the lugenpress suggests that we live in a multicultural society. The problem is, is that is not the case. We do not live in a multicultural society. We live in a society governed by man’s always changing law. That one unchanging always changing law that governs all of our culture proves that we are indeed monocultural though those who desire this type of humanism always use the term “multiculturalism,” in order to hide their tracks.

The old canard of pluralism is then invoked and this without realizing that pluralism is a myth. No culture is genuinely pluralistic. Pluralism teaches that all religions and ways of life are allowed into the public square but that this is not true in our social order is seen in the fact that it is the State which ends up saying that some ways of life are not allowed. The State is playing the role of God saying which ways of life will be approved and which ways of life will not be approved. Right now the State, following this anti-pluralism motif, is saying that Reconstructionism is a way of life that is not approved. As it stands now the humanist state plays the role of regulator. All Biblical Christianity desires is that the Christian state be given the place to do that instead of anti-Christianity.

NPR also subtly mocks the idea that Reconstructionism, following Scripture, teaches that women should stay at home have children, raises children and serve their husbands and families. Yet, this “radical” idea was the norm for centuries and centuries up until 100 years ago or so. Prior to that time only Marxist Revolutionaries wanted to dismiss this idea. This is what NPR is… it is a cult of Marxist Revolutionaries who, following Betty Friedan, think that a woman who stays at home in order to be what generations of women before her were is a wasting her life. NPR is giving us the Revolutionary dreck of Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelly, andAlexandra Mikhailovna Kollontai.

Next the embittered divorced Professor says the right to keep and bear arms is connected to the patriarchal right to protect family. Actually, the right to keep and bear arms is connected to the clear teaching of Scripture in Exodus 22, though no one disagrees that per the sixth commandment we have a responsibility to protect the lives of others, including and especially our families, against those who would do us harm.

Next NPR quotes a snippet from some Pastor’s sermon where the Pastor is noting that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization that is for the destruction of the family. By their snide introduction to the clip of the sermon NPR is mocking this Pastor and this sermon yet if one looks at the BLM website one can learn that they are a Marxist organization which desires the destruction of the Christian family.

NPR includes in their vaudeville piece a former Pastor who was a Reconstruction and who eventually became disillusioned with the movement and this Pastor’s disillusionment against the ideas of Reconstruction are evident whenever NPR appeals to him for insider information. It’s a bit like asking Judas his opinion of Jesus Christ. This former minister slanders Rushdoony by saying in the interview that Rushdoony denied the holocaust. The truth is that Rushdoony never denied the holocaust. Rushdoony merely questioned the death total numbers of the holocaust. These questioned numbers were so dubious that even those who administer the Auschwitz tourist site way back in the early 90’s reduced the number of deaths in the holocaust at Auschwitz downward by 1.5-2.0 million.

NPR then goes after Rushdoony’s comments on slavery. Chris and Lisa even give us a rift of quotes from Rushdoony on the subject. However, one can read the same kind of comments from the slaves themselves in the 1930’s exit interviews done by the US Government that Rushdoony is quoted as making in lecture snippets provided by Chris and Lisa. In the 1930’s the US Government financed a project to interview ex-slaves. In those exit interviews, as done with former slaves, one hears from many of the former slaves talking about the good life they had when they belonged to their Masters. So, for NPR to criticize Rushdoony for what many of the slaves themselves offered in their exit interviews is another example of irresponsible journalism. NPR even goes so far as to say that Rushdoony’s comments are “classical racism.” Well, that is only true as that accusation comes over the lips of the Cultural Marxists. It is true, by the standards of the Cultural Marxism of the Lugenpress Rushdoony is a racist, but given that accusation is coming from Cultural Marxist who gives a rats tush if the Cultural Marxists label Christians as “racist.” Our response to this accusation should just be, “Well, I’m sure that it is the case that all Cultural Marxists think Biblical Christians are “racist.” I will take your Cultural Marxist accusation as a badge of honor.

Throughout the interview there is implicit sniping at homeschooling. Somehow it was wrong for Paul Dorr to homeschool his children with the end in view of molding them into cultural warriors. Somehow it is wrong for homeschoolers to speak the obvious by properly referring to government schools as government schools. (How could they be public schools if much of the public doesn’t attend them and viciously disagrees with their curriculum and agenda?) Somehow it was wrong for Rushdoony to be a centerpiece in the building up of homeschooling.

Now, after all that has been reported on here, keep in mind that what National Pinko Radio is trying to do is to suggest that just as Rushdoony was a racist so the Dorr Brothers are racist. Just as Rushdoony was a holocaust denier so the Dorr brothers are holocaust deniers. Just as Paul Dorr is against the vile culture of sodomy so the Dorr Brothers are against the vile culture of sodomy. Just as Partrick Parson’s organization was accused (but not proven) of sketchy administration so the Dorr Brothers could well be also guilty of having a sketchy administration of their organizations. Just as Rushdoony held to patriarchy so the Dorr brothers hold to patriarchy. Do you see all the innuendo without substance here? All the guilt by association?

Now, all this could be true, or some of it is true while other aspects is not true but the point is, is that NPR never proves anything. All they give us is smoke. All we know for sure after four “in depth” episodes on the Dorrs is that they are 2nd amendment activists.

And we already knew that before NPR lugenpress became their series.

Oh… and we also learned that NPR hates vanilla Christianity. But we also already knew that before the series began.
