Response to nationalize the fed (Reply #4)

Wed Dec 9, 2015, 11:57 PM

12. Oh, I don't know...

I am among hundreds of thousands of "American People" who routinely decry the deceit of the M$M, and their use of propaganda to sway the vast Hoi Polloi towards willful ignorance, mass consumerism and blind partisan patriotism. I think you tread close to the edge of "victim" blaming, as William Ryan described so eloquently in his seminal work "Blaming the Victim."

Like many others, I find that our comedians most often speak truth to power. Just today, I saw a clip from Lee Camp (here) wherein he discusses who "won" the first Democratic Debate, and illustrates how the M$M pulled out all stops to propagandize the outcome of the debate--giving the "win" to Clinton, despite an initial, unanimous acknowledgement that Bernie Sanders had won the debate. (I've not had time to vet this clip, but it's inarguable that the M$M is working hard to render Senator Sanders irrelevant or invisible.)

The ONLY reason to go to war in this day and age is to enrich to coffers of a minuscule number of narcissistic hedonists, most of whom fit the profile of psychopathy. I don't want to see any more of our younglings nor any more innocent civilians sacrificed on the altar of their destructive greed.
