MTV Says: Think Like Us . . . Or the Holocaust is Coming

By Debbie Schlussel
Newstalk Radio WJNO’s blog points to MTV’s newest low. The cable music network (which features little music, these days) has ads running asking you to “think” like MTV and get into its political campaigns or you will end up as a concentration camp inmate rounded up by the Nazis in the “next” Holocaust.
The last time I heard this BS was in 2004, when Cameron Diaz told Oprah and her audience that if we don’t vote (for John Kerry), “rape will be legal.” Oh, and before that, in 2000, when Barbra Streisand told Barbara Walters and Rosie O’Donnell that if Bush wins, we’ll have another Holocaust, and Jews will be rounded up into concentration camps. (The closest we came to that was Condi Clueless a/k/a Condoleezza Rice redlining where Jews can and can’t live in Israel.)


Remember the “Good Old Days,” When This Was MTV?

You get the point. Now, watch these videos and see MTV’s despicable lack of a point in its new “Think. MTV” campaign (meant to replace the has-been “choose or lose” campaign). MTV claims, “The Holocaust Happened to People Like Us.” Um, were the late Curt Cobain, the girls from “The Hills,” and the airheaded audience of TRL rounded up to the camps of Treblinka because they watched MTV’s pro-Muslim specials or sexually charged messages? Or was it my Jewish relatives cooked in the ovens of Auschwitz merely because they were Jews?

Um, sorry, the Holocaust didn’t happen to people like you–the MTV crowd. It happened because of people like you, too dumb or Paris Hilton-obsessed to do otherwise.
In those days, it was the high-brow Germanic culture that was more important than the “dirty Jews.” Today, it’s far lower-brow MTV garbage “culture” that is more important than . . . everything.
Thanks to reader Ari, who writes:

According to MTV the Holocaust is pretty much right around the corner. The last one, of course, happened to people just like us. (Well maybe “us” if you mean Jewish people like us us) but I doubt they mean that.)
MTV had to dig real deep to achieve this new low. I wonder how they’ll manage to top themselves next time.

Don’t worry. They will. It is MTV, after all.

There is already a holocaust against right wing conservatives and our freedom of speech. If Hillary or Obama have it their way, they will round us up and dispatch us to re-education camps.

Oh puleezeee this is inane. If they really cared about genocide, how come they do not talk about tibet or darfur? They just insult us.

Maybe they’re talking about the Muslims rounding up everyone who doesn’t agree with their beliefs?

If people were really thinking they wouldn’t be wasting their brain or time watching MTV.
I didn’t even know it was still on the air. I quit watching after Remote Control and Beavis and Butt-head went off the air.
As great as MTV was for about 5 years, it very quickly degenerated into one of the most stupid, idiotic contraptions in TV history. MTV deserves the most cruel fate for introducing the reality TV craze.

The MTV videos are ridiculous, and one danger of it is that they can blind people to the real anti-semitism that is increasing in Western Europe & the U.S. and the rest of the world. Israel is becoming more & more isolated, and forced to make concessions to the terrorists which weaken its overall position.
Videos like this will trivialize the Holocaust in the “minds” of many, and to bandy a term like this around in the way it is being done here will make it like the boy who cried “wolf”. Anti-semitism is gaining strength and a farce like this will make it harder to fight the real battles.

If Americans were allowed to choose the cable stations they wanted as opposed to being forced into subscribing to cable offerings like MTV, I believe MTV would go out of business for lack of subscribers. You would not have to worry what your children might see on that despicable propaganda Network.
Recently our HOA had BET and MTV dropped from our cable package by popular demand in a vote by the homeowners. Instead, we got a couple of movie channels and no longer have to worry about the trash MTV broadcasts to our grand children when they visit.
If you believe it is wrong to be forced to pay for cable stations you object to, follow this link and sign the petition.
In addition, cable ala carte just might save you some money.

So now the death buster networks have come out of the closet and showed us their true colors. Only people around my age and younger, and the unfortenates in the older generation (which makes up their audience) will be affected by the diamon container brainwash program.
I swear this is straight out of Sailor Moon S (the 3rd season of the anime), and there is not one death buster group, there are many. And what’s even worse is that we have the real life professor tomoe, Barrak Hussein Obama. Not to mention his wife, Michelle “Kaorinite” Obama. They get in the white house…say good bye to america.
*sigh* Well anyone here who watches anime knows what the heck I’m talking about.

See, this the promblem with the MTV crowd. They are too dumb to “Think” for themselves. Then, they would not make the dumb mistake of confusing the MTV crowd with the victims of the terrible Holocaust. How degrading this is to the 11 million Holocoust victims!
The Dumb MTV crowd look to TV Mogals, and dumb Movie stars and Rock Wiccan/Warlock stars to do their thinking for them.
Using the Holocaust, is all time low for MTV! Haven’t watched in years. Never will again. Shortens the old IQ.

I used to LOVE watching MTV, but that was many, MANY loooong years ago, back when it first started.
I remember buying MTV videos, and wish I had them now (they were VHS, and now I use a DVD).
I really enjoyed watching Pat Benatar (Hey, I’m a GUY!!!), Heart, Mike and the Mechanics, Aha, Abba, Billy Idol, and Dire Straits.
But, then the American Negroes began complaining that MTV only showed White performers.
Well, you can guess what happened after that.
Sure enough, in their efforts to demonstrate they were not racially prejudiced, MTV began showing lots of American Negro videos, each one progressively more and more perverse.
Thus, MTV was ruined forever.
For a brief time, there was an alternative channel, VH1, that still featured mostly White material.
But, eventually, the racial pressure also affected VH1, and now, you hardly ever see a White band performing on either MTV or VH1.
The performers are mostly Black, and the material is usually filthy and demeaning, while the vocalizations cannot be understood.
Along with their efforts to deny any semblance of racial bias, MTV and VH1 also felt the need to encourage acceptance of homosexuality.
So, I no longer watch MTV or VH1.
I wish I could still buy those original MTV videos, in DVD format.
Yes, I’m White and I’m definitely racially prejudiced against American Negroes, and I make no apology for my views.
I don’t like rap or hip hop or any of that junk.
I don’t like their demonstrations of immorality or immodesty.
I don’t like their profanity.
I even use the “N” word – – – a LOT – – – because I get angry – – – a LOT.
American Negroes have totally trashed the entertainment media in every venue.
They are the main reason MTV is not any good anymore.
Thank you.

Its about spreading disinformation about what the word means and trivializing the weight of it as well.
Take the Holocaust away from Jewish History and you remove the last internal stumbling block of moral equivalence inductee to completely vilify Jews and Israel

jpm100 on April 7, 2008 at 9:24 pm

That guy above you better be kidding….

Squirrel3D on April 8, 2008 at 1:42 am

I don’t think he’s kidding, Squirrel.

MTV has been garbage for decades…so why shouldn’t they get worse, or show their sickness and stupidity?

Sharps Rifle on April 8, 2008 at 8:01 am

MTV’s job for many years was to sell products and image to folks in my age group and younger. The whole thing was meticulously designed as the most expensive infomercial ever.
Their parent company often follows trends and responds to consumer feedback to the nearest microbe: If an unknown band is gaining momentum, MTV’s parent company would get the band contracted, and then to appear many times on the scripted show Total Request Live (which is neither based on view requests or live; it’s recorded and broadcasted).
MTV and their viewers have a strange tit-for-tat relationship. This is where the reality shows came from: MTV would show a video or show of scanty clad, barely legal women dancing provocatively. The viewers would ape the same stuff they viewed on MTV in reality, and MTV would record these folks and make a profit off it. The viewers fuel the nonsense, and MTV fuels the viewers.
This delusional reference to MTV = Free World, or MTV = Free Society is a far cry from normal, healthy thinking. MTV has no sense of civilized discourse, humanity, or any sense of history. These ads prove it.
What’s next: show a large group of kids dedicated to Snoop Dogg being gunned down at Haun’s Mill? Or the host of Total Request Live being martyred like Joseph Smith? Or maybe images of Rush Limbaugh wearing a gray uniform and a photoshopped little mustache – calling for the extermination of all those that watch The Real World in a voiced-over, cliched german accent?
MTV and their parent company are no different than porn producers: encourage normal folks to throw out humanity, dignity, legal structure, and wholesome family living… to urge sodomy and gradual death for money and influence for just themselves.
Anything for money and the right to dictate the actions of your home.
We cut the cable in our home years ago. (I had to go online to research MTV for this response.) I urge all loving parents to do the same. Cheap entertainment is not worth your family’s well-being.

I must be stupid but I don’t even understand what this is saying. Maybe I don’t want to.

Your post is even dumber than MTV’s ads.
American Sabrah, you are a stupid twit.

Hello all
If you want to watch the original two videos that are posted on the MTV website think.mtv.com, so you can see the context, and the resources they suggest young people use to understand the Holocaust, and preventing another such terrible tragedy, please check out these two links:

The NDAA has passed. This legalizes martial law. Any person in the US labeled as a “domestic terrorist” may be held indefinitely without trial.
Have you seen the domestic terrorist list?
Next to pass is SOPA which will give the Dept of Justice the unprecedented power to blacklist any website they deem “infringing upon copyright laws” without trial.
Have you heard about FEMA camps? Ya I thought it was conspiracy too.
Google it!

Melissa on December 21, 2011 at 8:35 am

Why has our government basically taken our constitutional rights away. NDAA has passed, FEMAs putting commercials on major networks saying be prepared. The patriot act that nobody will speak on and the 1000s of coffins and new FEMA camps built on u.s soil. Were not to good cause were currently living through it. What happened the he Roman empire, and how do we learn from history if it just repeats its-self. Capitalism only works with cheap labor. But what happens when you have a whole society that won’t work hard Manuel labor for 8$ an hour. Were only as powerful as our dollar so what if worlds reserve currency is yen or gold. What if. Think about it.
