MSM: Do you really think we are that stupid and gullible?

Open up any media website or put on the news regarding the recent middle east protests and this 'anti Islam' video is being used over and over again as to why this is happening. This is the latest from the BBC as the protests spread to Pakistan-

This idea that protests have spread because of one video is ludicrous. Do the MSM and their controllers really view the general public as this gullible? I guess they do given the relentless manipulation that is playing out. Was it not the Nazi's themselves who said repeat a lie often enough and people will come to believe it?

Well, don't fall for it.

One video does not cause an entire region to break into anti American protests all at once.

This is orchestrated.

This has built up over years- bombing campaigns, drone attacks, outright wars of aggression, funding rebels to overthrow governments, allowing the Muslim Brotherhood gain power in the region- they are the real reasons.

The MSM isn't touching any of this though. They want to portray the recent violence as protest to one 'anti Islam' video because that sets up us as the good guys. It is propaganda, because when this escalates, they want an ememy to be portrayed as religious extremists who show no reason for what they do. It is propaganda.

The anti-Islamic film, "Innocence of Muslims," has created a deadly outrage that highlights religious extremism in the Middle East and around the world. Earlier this week in Afghanistan, a suicide bombing killed a dozen people in what Islamic extremists call "revenge" for the anti-Islamic film which depicted the Prophet Muhammad in a negative light.

Hang on, what about the drone attacks that kill civilians daily? Not once will you see the MSM mention the reality of why people are angry and turning against us.

Nothing but manipulation of how people think- the MSM is conditioning us to fear an enemy so when military action comes, the people will think the west is doing the right thing.

I guess it is nothing new, who remembers this headline in the run up to the Iraq War-

As the recent violence and spread of hatred has the potential to escalate along the back drop of Israeli- Iranian tensions, I ask you all not to fall for the lies and deception the MSM will tell to manipulate you.

Just as you are attempting to manipulate audiences here to your narrative?

Go for the facts. Ask anyone peaceful protestor on the streets why they protested, and do they support the violence.

Their answer is often that they were protesting against the video, that's all, and nothing to do with anything else.

However, if one was to interview those violent ones whom had committed violent acts, they will tell differently with all kinds of narratives based upon lies and anti-american propaganda to justify the slaughter of innocents, and strangely, similar to just as you had written in your post....

They don`t think we are they know we are, well not all of us are but a very large majority are.

i don`t blame the msm, this is what they have always done.They use to be a lot more subtle about it, but now they are just blatantly and transparently obvious about it and the really scarey thing is that so many people are to stupid to see it.
us older folks have seen the msm doing this for decades,we`ve seen them get less and less sneaky and subtle about it, so we know what`s up they aren`t fooling us.

Why ELSE would every thing we THINK we know, be a lie.

The elite are LIARS and everything they do is deceptive and fraudulent.

EVERYTHING they say is a LIE.

Exactly most of the people don't care anymore.
They're just thinking about how they are gonna pay their next bill, becoming famous, getting laid, etc.
