Propaganda Full Frontal: A Little High Level Intervention And This Is What Happens

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While one can attribute the most recent AP tweeting faux pas to a missed English grammar lesson, when in the aftermath of the MH-17 crash, this:

... became this:

 

there is no grammatical justification for why two days ago, AP did it again, when a "harshly" worded tweet by the AP:

... became this, just four hours later.

One wonders how high the propaganda flag pole the objecting parties had to run, make that sprint, to get this "revised wording" blasted out, and just how many AP pink slips will appear in next week's not seasonally adjusted initial jobless claims print?

The Jews are controlling the media as a wepeon of war and are modern day front line soldiers for Israel. I wonder how long it will be before these so called 'media professionals' will start getting slaughtered like the miltants they have become. They can't hide behind their desks and get away with manupulating the masses forever. Aldous Huxley warned us about these guys. They can be beaten and the decentralized power of social media is the new front against the Zionist control over our minds via the media. Keep fighting!!!

I knew a hot young journalism student once, while at college, and I "followed" her also.  Right to the bedroom.

She had the questions, I had the answers.  Very investigative, she was.  The series of interviews ended, when I determined that she was too much of a 'princess' (J.A.P. type) and she determined that she needed someone more kosher than me.   Some stories are not meant to last, I guess.  ;-)

So instead of bombing Gaza, why don't the Zionist's just take control of the bank of Gaza, lend out bucket loads of money, inflate the price of real estate and send the Palestinians bankrupt and then repossess the land that way just like they do everywhere else in the world?  Oh, that's right, Muzzies don't like interest.  Coming to think of it, neither do the Jews.

Deuteronomy 23:19

 19"You shall not charge interest to your countrymen: interest on money, food, or anything that may be loaned at interest. 20"You may charge interest to a foreigner, but to your countrymen you shall not charge interest, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land which you are about to enter to possess

Guess that just leaves silly ol' Christians and atheists, perhaps also Hindus and Buddhists (I haven't read their stuff so I don't know).

errr, that's all I know.  I might be an idiot.  Feel free to enlighten me.  Thanks.  Much appreciated.

the core of Judaism's religious texts [irrespective of whether or not the average Jewish bear who isn't especially religious knows or cares] are incredibly ethnocentric and xenophobic, as well as unabashedly violent, in a way that's shocking if you actually take the time to read them.

The apologetics generally stress that it either wasn't God himself but a particular leader, or if it plainly was God, it was specific and limited to, say, genocide against a particular group who dared to have developed a civilization on land the Hebrews coveted - but most of the apologetics are horseshit, meant to whitewash was is clearly an ethos of treating non-Hebrews in a far worse way.

 

Love your neighbor originally meant "your fello Jew" - Christ's sermons were about, in large part, arguing for a universalist message.  Ditto the good Samaritan story...Sermon on he Mount - all that peace and love shit the Xian Zios never seem to reference.

 

Anyway, the Koran is also replete with calls to violence against infidels -

http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

The difference is, you can bash Islam all day long and no one will call you an "anti-Semite" and summon Hitler/Nazis, etc.

The basic idea is that Judaism is this wonderful, beautiful religon that should be above criticism.  Neither is true.  All dogmatic religions are dangerous - but its worth bearing in mind - Jews have been every bit as violent as Muslims when they had the power to be.

Most Js are good people precisely because they don't take the texts seriouslyor literally.

And if Islam were really as violent as the Fox news crowd says, if even 0.01% of the world's 1.3 BILLION Muslims were interested in jihad - the world would be constantly on fire, everywhere.

Meanwhile - there's only 17 million Jews. Look at the Bolshviks, look at the Donmeh turks and the Armenian Genocide.  Look at Lebanon and Gaza.

All in all I'd say Jews-as-Jews have killed more human beings than Muslims-as-Muslims, while warmongers and colonialists who were nominally Christian have killed the most of all.

 

Anyway, if you have never actually read Deuteronomy - or Leviticus or Joshua or Judges...  why not put it on your list.  Shit is crazy, yo. We're just not supposed to say so because, you know...  Jewish...

I blame a lot of violence, in that area of the world, on hot weather ( encouraging bad temperament ), hunger, and that really thick coffee that they drink that is bound to have you full of intense energy and bouncing off of walls.

Give 'em weak coffee, a full belly and air-conditioning and they might still get annoyed, but they'll do something about it next week ... if there's nothing good on the telly.

Again, just broadcasting my ignorance here.  I really got no idea.

 

EDIT:  Of course, watching friends and family get mutilated and blown away doesn't help either.  That shit tends to become self-sustaining.

Some sources -- Jewish sources -- think that Deuteronomy is a fake/fraud and was used to rewrite whole sections of the Old Testament.

But then, entire sections of OT has been rewritten at several periods and by several authors.  So that hardly qualifies what these days is called "Traceability Compliance".  Treat it more as a series of ancient Marvel Comic books, than scientifically-compliant historic records.

Not all Jews are alike in their worldview, not by a long shot. There is a large variation, just as there is among "Christians".  After all, Hitler and his ilk were Catholic/Christian, and the head-chopping Mexican drug lords are "Catholic"... so you have to take the "religious" label/component with a shovel of salt, and focus on their political (economic and social) worldview.  And yet you would not compare them to Mother Theresa.  IOW, don't get too 'wrapped up' with the packaging and label, which is for marketing and for show.  It's what's Inside that matters.  Likewise, there is a large variation of social, political and philosophical/religious views among Israelis, as there is among "Americans".  Both are countries, where Globalist extremists/ideologues have quietly hijacked the government and key elements of the judiciary and media.

It is more accurate, smarter, shrewder and politically FAR more effective to use what I call "political semantics" in identifying and talking about "the enemy of mankind", by calling them Globalists, Global Zionists, Extreme Zionists, NWO types -- which are all political labels and thus 'fair game' -- than by any ethnic, religious or other labels that get turned around and that put YOU on the defensive.  Also, please note that Palestinians are Semites also, so it's totally false/deceptive when a Globalist uses the term "antisemitic".  Anti-Zionist?  Yes.  Antisemitic?  No!  Got it?

Kirk;

You made 2 points that were on my mind. PLO is Semitic. And Jews can be on the left & the right and sometimes probably both the left & the right.

Maybe it is more generic to call things & people "Fascist" when that is the case. And to bring up the problems with US Capitalism & Our Military Republic. Maybe that is my solution.

I'm still working on how to talk about the Masonic influence in our Military & Government and how to answer to the charge that secret organizations with Fascist ideas and foreign ties may have control over our economy & government.

Per my research and knowledge of a good number of Jews and Israelis, I'd argue that these are all Globalist/International Zionists, with tons of Sayanim in a number of Western countries, but especially the US.  For basic info, see...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revisionist_Zionism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Israel

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zionist_Organization_of_America

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayanim

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netanyahu 

It is not a coincidence that BB/Nuttynyahoo is so hawkish.  He comes from a line of Globalist/Revisionist Zionists (father and his father). 

Now... having said this, it is EQUALLY true that there are equally or more extremist/fanatical ideologues in the Muslim faith (Sunnis, Wahhabists), and that many are among the Palestinians as well as Iraqis, Saudis, Yemeni, etc.  There will therefore be NO peace until the world as a whole decides to "contain" said fanatics on all sides.  But, before that happens, we have to ID and eliminate said extremist ideologues from our respective governments.  Easier said than done.

Yes, to me it is obvious that William Daroff was responsible for initiating pressure on AP to send out a revised tweet. A few linguistic friends have now analyzed the similarity of the wording of the Daroff tweet vs the revised AP tweet. For example, his use of the word 'lawmakers' gives this away since it was not in the original AP tweet, but was in the Daroff tweet 5 minutes later, and then miraculously appeared in the revised AP tweet.

Can William Daroff refute this accusation? What was he doing from 11.00am until 3.40pm on the day in question?

Be very suspicious of this dangerous individual William Daroff. He appears to be a snake amongst snakes.

There are few Jews and Shabaz Goy. Normally there are so few slips, as the press and academia are self censoring, they can handle them. But this scale of murder in Gaza has the monkeys rattling their cages. Jews are supposed to be sensitive and especially moral (according to their mouth pieces). Leftist stooges are now experiencing cognitive dissonance trying to resolve earlier Jewish propaganda with what obvious cunts Jews are in reality.

'Jews' aren't cunts. I know quite a few and count some of my dearest friends amongst them*.

ZIONISTs are cunts, whether they're Jewsih, Christian, or Luciferian.

*Always makes me laugh how 'some of my best friends are xxxx' is taken as evidence the speaker is actually prejudiced against xxxx. Presumably if the speaker had answered, 'no, I don't have any xxxx friends', that would be taken as evidence they were prejudiced too. Look! He won't befriend xxxx! What a bigot!

Near total Jewish support for Israel across the globe illustrates the Jewish problem. Their only nation and loyalty is Israel.  They undermine any host society. They are parasites.

There have been plenty of Jews protesting what Israel are doing. And some of the most staunch, well known, and effective critics of Israel are Jews - Chomsky, Finkelstein, Rothbard...

I agree many Jews are incapable of looking at Israel dispassionately, but so are Americans when it comes to America.

And may I remind you that America is parasitising the rest of the world through their reserve currency?

We're not talking Gomorrah here, where 100% of the people deserve damnation.

The usual BS for stupid Goyim. As if individual nobodies would matter in politics or economy.

Show me the Hollywood movies against Israel.

Show me the newspapers.

Show me the TV and radio stations.

Show me the Icahns and Soros spending their wealth to fight Israel and help the Palestinians.

Show me the Jews in politics all over the world, demanding UN sanctions being respected, demanding to stop the support for the criminal Jewish state, demanding embargoes.

 

If I know a tame jackal, does this have ANY significance?

It's nothing but the old Jewish trick to bring up single examples to confuse the naive and stupid Goyim, that the gentiles no longer look at the mathematical evidence, the statistics, the overwhelming facts!

If it fits they are "only a religion" and in the next minute they are a people. In one minute they are a nation, and in the next minute they are individuals, having nothing in common with "the Jews" as group.

I can't believe I'm having to argue this here. Anti-Semites are as hateful as Zionists.

Listen, chump, pointing out that powerful Zionists pretty much rule the West, and that many (most?) of them are Jews, doesn't prove that all Jews are bad, particularly when one remembers that these 'elites' comprise a tiny percentage of the Jews' numbers, as well.

And how did they get to where they are today, and stay there? Not because of the complicity of the 'everyday Jew', but the everyday non-Jew.

Railing against all Jews is ignoring the fact that the real problem is the vast majority of goy.

Or are you too partisan to admit that, goyboy?

There is no group that is more anti-Semitic than the Zionists. Zionists are right now, at this very minute, doing their damnedest to kill and otherwise ethnically cleanse unarmed innocent Semite Palestinians in Gaza.

Not all Jews are Zionists. Most Jews are not ethnically Semitic; they are ethnically eastern European -- Ashkanazi or Kazarian. Judaism is just a conveniently adopted, but largely ignored, religion for the Ashkenazim. In reality, most of them are really atheists.

Maybe it's just an example of Jooish business practices, i.e. armed robbery. It's worked so far in Palestine. Why wouldn't it work again?

There's lots of gas offshore Gaza. And Europe is just a (future) pipeline away.

Why would the Zionists share any of the money with anyone else, especially the owners?

The Palestinians just need to leave. It would be best if they leave in wooden boxes never to be heard from again. It's as simple as that.

BigJim, I concur and I'd argue that... not only are these people Ignoramuses or Bigots, but they may very well be Global Zionist shills/agents, who deliberately wrap themselves in the Jewish or Israeli flag -- just as 'Christian' Globalists or Atheist Globalists wrap themselves in the American flag.  I suspect they use them as "Flags of Convenience".

I sincerely hope that ZHers with an IQ greater than room temperature can differentiate this -- rather than allow themselves to be sucked into false paradigms, false semantics and false arguments.

In the final analysis, IMHO, it always comes down to what fundamental human and political Rights a person believes in and how other people have the same rights.  If someone has Absolutist views on the rights of "only their kind" (their group, tribe or religion), then they are dangerous fanatics -- who should not be allowed to wrap themselves in any "Flag of Convenience", much less allowed to leverage the resources and wealth of those outside their kind.

Yes, there is an increasing whiff of agent provocateur around here.

I suspect most of the anonymous greens being given to genuinely anti-semitic posts are there for the purpose of 'proving' how anti-semitic ZH is. Some of the posts strike me that way as well.

And people don't believe in 'evil'.

Yes, the golden rule is, in the end, the only rule. "Do not do unto others that which is hateful unto you - that is the whole Torah'. I guess these people have decided that only applies to members of their own group. And I daresay the boundaries of that group can shrink radically any time one of them appears to be going off reservation.

An honest Israeli Jew tells the Real Truth about Israel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etXAm-OylQQ

Miko Peled ("The General's Son") was born in Jersusalem into a famous and influential Israeli Zionist family. His father was a famous General in the Israeli Army, of which Miko also served his time. When Miko's niece was killed by Palestinian suicide bombers, you may have expected the family to put Palestinians at fault, but surprisingly they blamed the state of Israel, and their violent torturing and persecution for driving people to such sadness that they would take their own lives.

Through his father's deep knowledge of the Israeli war of terror, together with his own research, Miko Peled ruins the myths surrounding the Israel and Palestine situation, and delivers a truth so damning that many Jews and Israel supporters will not be able to bear it. He reveals facts such as the original expelled Jews are not the ones returning, and they are not their descendants either, covers the double standards regarding the right of return, which doesn't apply to Palestinians, and dispels the myth that there has been a conflict for ages by producing proof that it was peaceful up until 1947 when Israel launched their illegal attacks.

Miko is just one of the many modern day Jews against a Zionist (fascist, racist) state of Israel, wants it replaced with a Democratic state of Israel (for Jews and Palestinians). The information he delivers in this astounding talk, it is not difficult to see why more and more Jews are rejecting Zionism and calling for the dismantling of Israel. It is a true eye-opener for anyone who has for too long been blinded by the fake misinformation given by the mainstream media, and the truths come straight from the heartland where he has spent many years documenting the real story.

I agree. Ron is the only politician I have ever given money to. I can tell you why rand changed his position on this. Rand, like Ron did, wants to be president. The difference is that Ron refused to change his position based on the prevailing public opinion, or what was demanded by the party. Many surveys in 08 and 12 found that while many people agreed 100% with him on domestic, monetary, fiscal policy, etc, he lost a huge chunk of republicans on the foreign policy issues. Many advisors and others urged him to soften his stance to appeal to a wider range of people, but he refused, which is why I like him so much. I still wear my 'end the fed' shirt all the time,( mostly just cuz the weird looks I sometimes get amuse me). But rand is more like your average politician, he will bend to the will of those around him, and the party bosses because he knows he won't get through the nomination without them. Unlike his dad, he WILL compromise his principles. I highly doubt he actually agrees with this Israel aid bill, not that he agrees with what isreal is doing right now, based on the environment he was raised in as his fathers son. But, he is squishy just like the rest of them, and is pandering so he can say he always backed isreal come election time. It's disgusting. How an AMERICAN politician can't get elected to national office without backing these genocidal Israelis is mind boggling. Just don't get why so man Americans feel like isreal gets a pass on everything

Muslim Arabs and Jews in those territories have an existential conflict, which is more driven by the Koran than all other factors combined. One group or the other will not make it into the next century, and if I had to pick one to survive, I find Israel more palatable than their opponents, and believe it is in the US' national interest that the situation resolve itself with that end.

 

The creed of Muhammad is a particularly brutal, savage, and merciless one, and if it exists at all, you are better off with them having someone else as their prime target.

If you're bitching about Israel's actions and not also bitching 10x as loud against the much larger situation just to the northeast, you have very narrow vision indeed.

 

I also don't get at all this fanatic devotion to Sykes-Picot or its consequences. If you want the world map fixed at a specific date, state the date.

Oh wait! I was kinda wrong about that last bit... turns out are taxes ARE going to support that MUSLIM ethnic cleansing, because the non-MUSLIMS who have hijacked our polity are following Oded Yinon's advice and trying to destroy any functioning state in the region that is hostile to... Israel.

Interesting, thanks.  But, you know... it also triggered another memory:  The memory of how the US (mostly Anglos, French and Dutch at first, and other Europeans later) pulled the same stunt in N.Am. (US and Canada), to "acquire" lands formerly occupied by Indigenous People. 

Looks like the White Jews (American and European Jews) learned well from American and British history, and we are now "calling the kettle black".  Awkward  :-/   "The truthiness... it burns us!"

Yes, the treatment of the native Americans was an atrocity... a series of atrocities, rather; but it happened before living memory. The ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestinians has been going on within living memory, is happening today.

Furthermore, unlike the Palestinians, the modern-day Cherokee gets to vote in elections or can buy back his ancestral lands and can come and go within the rest of the US as s/he pleases.

If you think land ownership is all about 'might is right' then I guess you'll think it's fine if someone bigger and meaner than you, comes and kills you and half of your family in the middle of the night, and moves in? Or, more to the point, the rest of the neighbourhood sits around idly tutting at your son when your son tries to get your house back, and not only ignores it when your son gets shot throwing rocks at the robber from your old garden shed, but actually pats the robber on the back and gives him more bullets, and some money to spend on bullet-proof glazing?

I suspect your morality is rather partial.

Anyone thinking I'm arguing the Zionist position is totally not getting it. I am an American. I am advocating my best interests as an American, which including not seeing teeming masses of radicalized Muslims overrun the planet - there just aren't any god outcomes of that for me as a regular American Joe.  It totally benefits Americans to have Israel suck up that problem so we don't have to.

 

As a member of a Western civilization, it is not in my interests to have teeming masses of any kind of third-worlders expand their scope. To date this has resulted in the spread of disease, offshoring of essential components of our economy, enabled corporatism on a vast scale, saddled our country with a huge human-influx problem, and in general been a very bad thing for civilized folk. I really can't think of any good benefits to offset it.

Do they teach this level of bullshit, or did you earn a degree or such?

He's not bad, is he? Quite sophisticated level of trickery compared to most of the Hasbara we're obliged to dispatch around here.

Is the idea of independent thought based on self-interest that inconceivable?

No, just the idea that what you trot out is an example of that.

Well surprise, surprise, someone's thinking does not conform to your radically simplistic conception of the world.

Yeeeeessss... because the various half-truths and sophistries you trot out are anything but simplistic. They'd kill us all at the first opportunity! Let the Israelis deal with the Muslimenace™ so we don't have to! etc.

Yes, it's a shitty deal.. and it's STILL infintely better than what the Palestinians are getting. Hey, sophist - maybe you should have picked a better analogy?

Ah, the old 'let Israel deal with the enemies of Western civilisation' gambit. Yes... so, you believe that if Israel wasn't regularly 'mowing the lawn' in Gaza, the Palestinians would be invading the US? Please.

None of this justifies our continued sponsorship of Israel... whose underlying creed teaches them to loathes you every bit as much as any radical Muslim. Assuming, of course, that you really are just another regular... goy.

I don't think the US should sponsor Israel (or any other country).

 

At the same time, I don't get at all the fashion of putting oneself out for people who would kill you at the first opportunity.

 

This situation would look a LOT different if the US wasn't sponsoring both sides. Why would the uber-Zionists who are alleged to control the US government permit billions to go to Israel's enemies? Why would they send Kerry to Israel with a document that amounted to surrender terms?

 

Reducing the situation to mere Zionism and effects thereof doesn't mesh with the facts. There is a lot more going on here.

Has it occured to you maybe you've got the order of events backwards? That maybe the reason they'd kill us 'at the first opportunity*' is because we've been putting ourselves out for those who kill them at the first opportunity?

What, like Egypt? Besides giving the Egyptian military regime a $1.5b incentive (and the means) to crack down on the Israel-loathing Muslim brotherhood? And to persuade them to keep the Rafah crossing shut?

*Isn't it odd how plenty of Christians seem to get in and out of the Palestinian territories without getting themselves killed 'at the first opportunity'? Along with the millions of infidel tourists who visit Muslim countries unscathed every year? Maybe you need to re-examine some of your 'facts' there, bud... or maybe that was a slip? They really would kill you at the first opportunity because you're not actually an American, but a serving member of the IDF?

The Arabs are occupying Israel's land that was stolen from them and destroyed by the Roman Empire.  If they all hate Israel's current borders so much, I'm sure they'd love to put them back as they were in 70 AD.  Hint: Jerusalem was entirely contained within Judea.

Why stop at 70AD? Let's wind the clock back to when the Jebusites owned the place.
