Neoconofascism Manipulate U.S. Via Mainstream Media:
But why is Ivy Leaguer and east coast elitist William Kristol, who never served in the United States military himself, whining about what Obama says in respect to the U.S. military? Apparently we must weigh in the fact that William Kristol, and his father, are ardent neo-conservatives whose ideological founder was Leo Strauss. More importantly we need note that Leo Strauss was a “fascist” political philosopher who taught at the University of Chicago.
Neoconofascism Manipulate U.S. Via Mainstream Media:
By Ben Frank
Recently neoconofascist William Kristol, from the New York Times News Service, as syndicated right-wing power broker, complained that Barack Obama did not mention military service, at a commencement speech, in which he discussed other forms of service to our country.
But why is Ivy Leaguer and east coast elitist William Kristol, who never served in the United States military himself, whining about what Obama says in respect to the U.S. military?
Apparently we must weigh in the fact that William Kristol, and his father, are ardent neo-conservatives whose ideological founder was Leo Strauss. More importantly we need note that Leo Strauss was a “fascist” political philosopher who taught at the University of Chicago.
Anyone who knows anything about politics knows that the neocons are not conservatives—rather they are radical extremists who have already engaged in damaging civil liberties here in the United States—not to mention playing a crucial role of manipulating our country into war with Iraq.
Secondly we note that many of the power brokers of the neoconservative movement are right-wing Jewish Americans with some right-wing secular and Christians smattered in as well. This is no small detail—that is that they have been working, along with their cohorts at AIPAC, for U.S wars in the Middle East. They actively worked to bypass our CIA’s more tentative and contrary assessments about WMD while they created their own “Office of Special Plans” within the Pentagon. Yes it was three more rightwing NeoCons, Abram Shulsky and Douglas Feith, that used this specially created Paul Wolfowitz aberration of a temporary center to distort intelligence assessments that went to the President—circumventing the establishment.
The fact is that Saddam Hussein, despite his political style, empathized with the Palestinians. Israel’s right wing wanted the U.S. to attack Iraq. And despite the fact that oil, the oil industry, and the petrodollar weigh heavily in this war—Israel’s manipulation’s do equally as catalyst.
In fact the strategy of Israeli influence here in America, via their operatives in Washington, the mainstream media, and Hollywood, and very likely some of the rumors and reporting of covert false flag operations, have engaged in a long war of manipulating both Christian fear and hatred of Muslims and Arabs—with their constant soundbites on “terrorism” and “Islamofascism” and not surprisingly “radical extremism” when real extremism comes from their own camp.
There has been a constant propaganda attack on the American people to have various wars of a “Clash of Cultures” while depicting the Muslim counties as backward and barbarian. Meanwhile there was no acknowledgement that Israel is too a theocracy, that acts as a barbarian state, that discriminates against people of other religions.
So again we ask: what motivates this neoconfascist Kristol to want to discuss military service? How much war does he envision—for the sake of Israel’s inability to get along with its neighbors and its continuous usurping of Palestinian property rights? Why should American soldiers continue to fight peoples who are sympathetic with the Palestinians—such as many Iranians.
Currently the people fighting in our military are from the lower classes and middle classes while kids of the wealthier classes, whose parent s may invest for profits from the war machine, continue to send their kids to college. Why should kids from the heartland and deep south, who religious affiliations are more evangelical and Baptist or other lower socio-economical layers, fight a war for those whose religious affiliations are from other sociological sectors?
The United States has paid an extreme and detrimental price being loyal to Israel—which is not much loyalty is made in return. And funny how these neoconfascists are supporting McCain whose father helped cover up Israel’s attack on our naval ship the USS Liberty while they deliberately killed our U.S. sailors.
Meanwhile why should Obama go before an AIPAC convention and promise unconditional loyalty for nothing in return—as if the AIPAC were some sort of divine assembly from God? More importantly, since when has Israel, or their handlers here in the U.S., been particularly loyal to the United States—or even halfway loyal?
The United States needs to step back from such a close and suffocating relationship so as to be able to see and act independently. This current relationship of coercive blackmail has to end.
Granted America’s foreign policies have had many faults and corruptions—but this current partnership with Israel and its neoconfascism collaborators here within the U.S. is not healthy.
