Mythbusting National News: Trumped Up Youtube Anti-Muslim Clip Rage & The Real
Sifting through national media "news" that's really more propaganda than anything else I was struck by an interesting narrative that only the totally naive accept without question.
Seriously, it's hard to believe there are adults in this nation who would accept that rioting and organized violent attacks against the West was solely because of one stupid video.
Muslim world rage over a Youtube clip is an easy sell because of a language barrier and stereotypes held by so many Americans.
Other facts make the reality of the situation even scarier. A highly organized and violent series of protests with overwhelming grassroots support aimed against the U.S. doesn't happen because of anything on Youtube. However, it's easy to see why the U.S. wouldn't want its citizens to realize that after a decade of war there remains an overwhelming level of antipathy toward this nation that can be capitalized upon by terrorists. In other words . . . The U.S. isn't even close to winning the war on terror and Osama's ghost has grown stronger. Or something.
Sadly, the tidal wave of propaganda intended for suckers who just watch the news out of habit makes reality harder to decipher.
I only found one link that really made sense . . .
Was anti-Muslim film a trumped up justification for violence?
Check the insightful money quote that NOTES THE START DATE OF THESE VIOLENT PROTESTS IN THE MUSLIM WORLD . . .
"The fact that these attacks took place exactly 11 years from the 9/11 attacks indicates that this is a long and difficult battle against terrorists who believe in sowing death and destruction,"
And that's closer to the reality of the grave situation that doesn't really have much to do with an online video and more to do with the cycle of violence that's ongoing and has now engulfed the globe.
Still . . . Blaming the Internets, U.S. Free Speech and some schmuck who cut together a promo clip makes this violent uprising easier to explain away.
