"Propaganda News" is Gullible

One would hope that a site named “Propaganda News” would be wary of uncritically accepting material — but that isn’t the case. In a post titled “Social Engineering Through the Propaganda of the Republican Presidential Race,” the full alleged Goebbels quotation is given to support this argument:
When it comes to politics, everything is propaganda. By now, most of us have come to realize that there is no difference between the Republicans and the Democrats; however, they are too quick to assume that an outsider like Donald Trump is truly an outsider, or Ted Cruz is the next Reagan.... In order to understand this fully you have to come to accept that our nation has been marked for conquest, and when Obama said fundamental transformation, he meant transformation to a socialist/communist state, period.
If “everything” in politics is propaganda, I suppose it applies to this site as well, which the author seems to confess at the end:
By accepting Ted Cruz or Donald Trump as our presidential candidates we are signaling to the left that we are willing to surrender certain values in order to solve problems they have forced upon us. It’s that simple, we are being socially engineered. Of course, this is just my opinion.
But he seems to think his opinion is a pretty good one....
