Do magazines have an unconscious? This is a relevant question because it certainly seems that Time Magazine made a Freudian slip of gigantic proportions, and managed to convey their real feelings, thoughts, and beliefs:
Andrew Levy at The Daily Gut noted this outrageous description of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at TIME Magazine’s web site:
Well look at it now:
(Hat tip: BizzyBlog.)
CHAMPION OF THE DISPOSSESSED? "Jew-hating, Holocaust-denying, genocidal and oppressive fanatic" is somewhat more accurate; but CHAMPION OF THE DISPOSSESSED? Just ask the people who are unfortunate enough to live in Iran and who happen to disagree with him to see how he "champions" their "dispossession".
To think of Mahmoud "wipe Israel off the map / America will disappear" Ahmadinejad as a champion of the dispossessed--or as a champion of anything but Islamofascist thuggery and medieval barbarism--represents an inner psychological dysfunction so severe it is absolutely breathtaking. If you want to understand why this country is in grave danger of abject surrender and submission to the forces that want to enslave or destroy Western civilization, you need look no further for clarification.
Time Magazine's Freudian slip reveals the unconscious belief of one of our major news outlets (or at the very least, their complete and total unconsciousness). The fact that the slip was corrected in the second iteration, only proves that the original represented a belief that Time embraces in their heart, but don't really want their readers to fully be aware of.
At least I prefer to think that it is an unconscious belief--because the alternative explanation is that Time is deliberately and maliciously trying to distort the news and mislead the American public to further its own political agenda. And further, that they actually admire and support the enemy that has openly declared his intent to destroy us.
No wonder they somehow managed to restrain themselves from declaring him their "Person of the Year".
Their motives might have been a bit too obvious (read: conscious or deliberate and therefore, not a slip) for even the non-psychologically-minded....
