Oh I have little doubt in my mind of the press being used as a tool for filtering and stetching information.
What I've seen lately is self propegating propeganda... to me, thats the scariest form... when propeganda gets so intwined into a group of people,
that the people themselves start spreading it.
Its in the media. We dont hear about the muslims protesting the death of their loved ones, because that makes them look human... something the
propeganda induced dont want to open their eyes to.
We hear about the muslims protesting the cartoons, because it makes them seem rediculous and... whats the word... uh... where you cannot be reasoned
with... oh well... i'll remember it when I'm finished the post.
Either way, its all based on US and THEM... the point is to make THEM look nothing like US. And unfortunately it works.
Take for instance, the celebrations when Hamas was elected into power. For the most part, the celebrations were quite peacefull, people congregating
in halls, popping of corks, what not... What did YOU SEE?... Well, the media went out to find the most juvinile people driving around firing
Kalishnikovs into the air...
make no mistake, those people you saw firing weapons into the air, were a minority of teenagers who have too much time on their hands, and a fresh
dose of homones to contend with.
But thats the image were supposed to see Hamas as... radical. All because of a few snapshots of teenagers driving around.
To put it in perspective... I know of quite a few Americans who celebrate elections, 4th of July, and other holidays by gathering up all the
fireworks, explosives, guns, alcohol, and off road vehicles they can find, and head out to some farmers field to use all of them... usually at the
I also know a few Canadians who celebrate July 1st in a similar way... difference is, we cant really get the guns that easily.
Are those the images in the news following OUR celebrations? Of course not... that would make us look like idiots... lets stick with the new
president, surrounded by people in suits, drinking champagne... yeah, that makes us look sophistomocated.
