Obama Middle East Speech Proves That He has No Intention to Change Foreign Policy

22 05 2011

By Christopher Thompson

I know that I am a little late on Obama’s recent Middle East speech, that’s because I just watched it. There is a lot of buzz around this speech particularly from the religious right about the part of the

speech involving the Israel-palestine conflict. I heard al these right wingers talk about how Obama is Betraying Israel. How do they figure? What I got from the speech is that Obama is screwing Palestine just as much as every politician before him.

First of all, I don’t believe we should be supporting Israel period, just like we shouldn’t have helped create the Zionist state at the end of WWII. Sure Obama talks of a Palestinian state, but not one that has a chance of surviving. I love how our politicians always demands that Palestine acknowledge Israel’s right to exists, yet nobody says that Israel should acknowledge Palestine’s right to exist.

Obama says “Our friendship with Israel is rooted deep in shared History and values.” What, Like the fact that both nations were founded by white Europeans, who went to a land that wasn’t theirs, to kill the indigenous people to steal their land? He also goes on to say that we won’t stand for Israel to be singled out By the International community. Kind of like how The US singles out Iran, while Our Allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia get a license to kill? Even Iran doesn’t go into international waters and attack ships with Humanitarian aid, in violation of Geneva convention rules.

He goes on to state “Every state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be allowed to defend themselves. ” Yet, his plan calls for a demilitarized Palestine.
Wait, a minute, didn’t he say every state has the right to defend themselves? Yet he calls for a Palestine that is not even allowed the means to defend its self . Israel’s history of “defending” itself is to attack other countries and settle its land, and if those countries truly defend themselves they are called terrorists. Israel doesn’t only occupy Palestinian land, they also occupy land that once belonged to Lebanon , Syria and Jordan. Wow, self-defence really seems to work to Israel’s advantage. every time Israel “defends” themselves, they acquire more land. So, basically when Obama says that every state has the right to self-defense, every one translates to Israel, and self-defense translates to Imperialist expansion.
There you have it folks, Obama has not done a damn thing to change our flawed foreign policy.

The propaganda machine and the Submission of the People to Government Power

                        The propaganda machine

                       and the submission of the people to government power

                                          By Christopher Jay Thompson

  The power of propaganda well documented in the modern era. Yet most americans, when asked about propaganda are likely to think of its use by “other ” nations. For instance, it’s use by Nazi Germany to gain the support of the average German. Or perhaps the Soviet Union “brain washing” Soviets into “hating American democracy”. Even the Use of propaganda by religious fanatics. Yet, they never for once suspects the possibility of our own government using propaganda to pull the wool over the eyes of the average American. They just don’t see it. Well that’s because of the success of the propaganda machine.

A prime example of the U.S. government using propaganda to pound the public into submission is the “Red Scare” of the Early 1900s. Woodrow Wilson used the  implied threat of the “eminent world takeover by the evil communists” as an excuse to destroy the unions and to suffocate the freedom of speech. People were persuaded to give up their freedoms in exchange for “security”. Sound familiar? It should. The Bush(Jr.) administration also asked Americans to sacrifice their freedom so that our government could protect us from the  evil terrorists who were “jealous” of our freedoms. How does that make any kind of sense? Give up our freedom to protect our freedom? That is the most idiotic thing I have heard in my life. Sounds like some kind of Orwellian double speak. Yet most Americans fell for it.

There are a lot of parallels between the cold war and the war on terror.  One parallel being the use of fear in order to persuade the American people into submitting to martial law. Thus, the great propaganda machine  was called in. Anytime we are at war with an adversary or even in a land grabbing competition, as we were with the Soviets; great lengths are taken to dehumanize the enemy. We must always convince the public that the enemy is jealous of our freedom. This will cause the people  to allow the government  to take all means necessary to protect them. This is sometimes refered to as “manufacturing consent”.

I am by no means condoning the terror attacks of september 11, 2001. It was the most vile and terrifying event to happen in my lifetime. It was an act of evil. Yet, we must ask ourselves a question. What were the circumstances that led up to people getting so enraged as to drive jumbo jets into buildings?Any idiot could tell you it wasn’t jealousy. Jealousy doesn’t cause someone to commit an act that was obviously done out of desperation. We must ask ourselves why, and we must try to find the real answer.

I believe that i is the duty of the people Who know the truth to spread it and to combat the spread  of lies. To quote Benjamin Franklin “A nation well-informed men, who have  been taught to know and prize the rights that god has  given them, cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins “. So it is the Job of the Educated to educate the uneducated.

Even though forms of propaganda have existed for ages, the power of  the film medium as a means of propaganda was first realized by Nazi Germany. It was a way to propagandize the masses. It was very useful in aiding the Nazis in the vilification of the Jews. The United States would follow the Nazis’ lead on using film as a means of propoganda. With the Advent of telivision, the U.S. took propagtanda to the next level.Now propoganda could bwe beamed directly into the homes of all Americans. Now the corporations and the government had direct control of the flow of information, particulary the news. Television was employed succesfuly during the cold war to demonize the Soviet Union.

So, as you can see, Propaganda can be a poewrful weapon in the shaping of the minds of the public. The most powerful tactic of the propaganda machine  is the installation of fear. People who are afraid are easy to manipulate. Extreme fear causes the  logic centers of the brain to shut down. Those of low education and inteligence are more succeptable to this form of mind control. people who are of hight inteligence are less likely to be propagandized. yet even intellectuals fall under the spell of propaganda machine. The best way to resist  mind control is to try to completely avoid propaganda.

Michael Eden claims that God Hates Arabs and that the Bible says so.

12 04 2011

During My time here on Word press I have come across a lot of hate spouting moronic blogs, but one really takes the cake.
The blog in question is “Start thinking Right ” by Michael Eden. The name of this Blog is deceptive, for if one begins to read his articles they realize that his thinking is wrong and Backwards. Indeed an educated person would come to the conclusion that Michael might not Even think at all.

"I am Michael Eden, and god says that he hates Arabs! Yee-Haww!!!"

   I started a discussion with Michael, criticizing him on his unflinching(and often mindless ) support of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and his blatant hatred for Muslims and the entire Arab race. predictive in regards to my criticism of the Occupation he accuses me of hating Jews (wich is not true at all). Then he tries to justify the Occupation of Palestine By quoting the bible, wich is a common tactic of Christian-Zionists(and is usually their only “evidence.”) Then he even claims that god Hates Arabs and says that the Bible says so.
He then goes on to quote some verse in the Bible about Jacob and Esau. Esau has Nothing to do with Arabs. I believe he was Thinking about Issac and Ismael, even then the Bible never says anything about god Hating Arabs.So much for Mr. Eden’s knowledge of the Bible. What kind of Christian uses the name of god to Justify his hatred, and then doesn’t have the biblical knowledge to even back up his claim.
Michael, hate has nothing to do with god.You are not fooling anyone by dressing up your hatred in Christian clothes. Nice try, maybe you should try a different scam. here is a memorable quote from Michael which displays his level of inteligence.”a liberal can have six advanced degrees and recite a plethora of academic papers, and be totally discombobulated by smart uneducated people armed with nothing more than an actual understanding of history.” Yes Michael, smart Uneducated people, that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard, well, next to the thing about God hating Arabs. It’s funny how Michael, in trying to claim he is smart, tells people that he is uneducated. Yes, because people really have confidence that uneducated people Know history. Wouldn’t knowing history require one to be educated, even self-educated? Mikey, you have definitely earned that dunce cap.

From Kent State to Lybia: U.S. Government Hypocrisy at it’s best

30 03 2011

  

 

  

                                                                     writen by Christopher Jay Thompson

  

 The situation in Libya reminds me of something that happened during another war, the Vietnam war. Yet it isn’t something  that happen on the other side of the world, It happened here inthe good ol’ USA. That incident was called the Kent State massacre.

 Here is a little history lesson for those of you who are not familiar with the Kent State massacre. On May 4th of  1970, at Kent State University in Ohio,  National guardsmen  opened fire on college students who were peacefully Protesting against the Vietnam war. Four of the victims died, nine others were seriously wounded.

This is something that  barely happened  41 years ago. So, it wasn’t that long ago. What recently happened  in Libya is Just  the Kent State Massacre on a grander scale.So, what right Does the  United States government have to take part of coalition offensive for something the US government has done itself; killed its own people. I mean, come on, it’s not like the Kent State incident is ancient history. It is utter hypocrisy .
