The FOX News headline pictured above is why white, angry, non-Muslim men in the US men go on killing sprees against Muslims living in America. It’s why they burn mosques down to the ground. Throwing loaded terms like “global jihad,” “growing terror,” and “Muslim world” into the same headline is an impressive feat of propaganda. The…… Continue reading FOX News Headlines Are Why White, Angry, Non-Muslim Men Go on Killing Sprees in America
The top 2 images are from yesterday’s attack in Denmark.

Terrorism (noun) – a propaganda term used to manufacture anti-Muslim sentiment, which in turn “justifies” worldwide military adventures to extract natural resources from weaker, Muslim-majority countries.

What role does the media play in contemporary politics? This question is at the heart of Dr. Noam Chomsky’s book Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda (published by Seven Stories). Although first published in 1991, Chomsky’s book remains timeless and pertinent. Since 9/11, the US government has fed Americans propaganda that portrays Muslims as “boogeymen,” a…… Continue reading The Spectacular Achievements of U.S. Propaganda Against Islam: A Review of Noam Chomsky’s “Media Control”
If the murderer of three Muslims in North Carolina was actually a Muslim and the victims “regular” white Americans, it would be “Breaking News” on mainstream media. “Experts” would be on the air linking the killer to a worldwide “jihadi” movement. Congress would start calling for military action abroad. Such is the power of propaganda. “Terrorism”…… Continue reading Shooting of Muslims in North Carolina and the Power of Propaganda
An important video especially in light of the mass-hysteria surrounding IS and other militant groups in Iraq and Syria. CNN is pushing out sensational coverage which may not be entirely honest.

Via SynergyCreek: Charles Jaco is seen here committing fraud as he reports…… Continue reading This is What War Propaganda Looks Like

Today is August 30, 2012. It’s 9:00 am. Like on every other morning, I have taken a very quick glimpse at the homepage of Fox News, the ‘Fair and Balanced’ ‘news outlet’, to gage where the right and far right are basing their political arguments. Like on every other morning, I am pretty appalled. Look at…… Continue reading Commentary: Fox ‘News’ homepage reads as a tabloid, not the most ‘trusted name in news’
