Poor Jim Maceda. In his effort to appease the Anointed Class he has inadvertently fingered them as the driving force behind the “manufactured outrage” in the Middle East. The Salafists he blames are actually the “sheikists” who serve American mammon which feed their own vices rather than Allah.
Let this be a lesson to sycophantic cheerleaders across the corporate media spectrum… doing your homework counts.
In the wake of the wave of “new Muslim anger” sweeping across the Middle East and North Africa, the propagandists are having to rewrite their narrative, albeit very slightly. Though the pundits and the talking heads on both the left and the right have been diligently trying to push the “official position” that the indignation surge was simply caused by a poorly crafted 14 minute clip of a previous psyop and a few hastily sketched French cartoons, the alternative news sites have been flushing out the truth of the matter and focusing on the darker narrative that lies behind this new October surprise. And thus the truth is actually getting out: this “spontaneous” outrage is anything but organic or authentic.
It’s a show folks. Street theater. Nothing more. And the MSM is having to admit it while they desperately attempt to pawn off responsibility for the production on the hired actors, the “professional jihadists” they cheered just a few weeks ago.
“Many protesters outside the U.S. Embassy were genuinely offended by the film. But the real driving force behind the protest – in Cairo and Benghazi – were radical Islamist groups who know how to exploit rage for political gain…
… Dr. Gamal Abdel Gawad, a highly respected Egyptian political analyst, agrees.
“I don’t think it was spontaneous,” he told NBC News. “People were gathering in one place at a certain time of day, so there was some mobilization behind it.”
And it’s clear to Gawad who did the mobilizing. “Radical Salafist groups orchestrated it to express their views and embarrass the [more moderate] Muslim Brotherhood because of competition between Islamic groups.” Jim Maceda, NBC News
Gone is the original narrative promoted by the White House and State Department that this was simply an uprising of revolution to a “film” so poorly made as to rise to the level of unintended comedy.
The Libyan president made it clear from the start that this attack, this psyop, had been in the planning stages for a month or so, by people from “outside the country” using the extremist elements who eventually attacked the consulate. Though denied by our trusted officials, eventually the facts could no longer be denied.
The power that exists in this country have to admit that something else was a foot from the beginning and thus they offer up Maceda’s spin to whit the “evil Muslims” did it to cause chaos in their countries.
But what is missing from Maceda’s hollow effort to blame the contractors instead of their employers is the simple fact that the “evil Muslims” could not have contracted an FBI informant “snitch” to create the silly film which would be used as the justification nor could they have forced the far right group “Media for Christ” to fund it and produce it in their offices in California.
The “evil Muslims” certainly could not have sent Ambassador Stevens back to the already dangerous environment of Benghazi just in time to be martyred for the cause any more than they could have forced the State Department to ignore warnings of pending troubles days prior to the Sept. 11th uprising.
“There have been similar attacks in Benghazi on the Red Cross and the UN. It is not clear why the US ambassador had returned to Benghazi at a time of security concerns.” Guardian
Surely, there are a great many holes in the new narrative spun up by Jim Maceda in service to the Anointed Class. And while he is correct that it is purely “manufactured outrage”, he fails to recall that the very “Salafists” that he repeatedly blames are in fact our allies in a manufactured uprising in Syria and were our allies in the violent regime change manufactured in Libya in the first place.
He also forgets that the branch of “Salafists” in question are also referred to as “sheikist” and they serve our interests over God’s:
“so named because they had (according to the jihadists) forsaken adoration of God for adoration of “the oil sheiks of the Arabian peninsula, with the Al Saud family at their head… their ostentatious Salafism was no more than a badge of their hypocrisy, their submission to the non-Muslim United States and their public and private vices…” Gilles Kepel Jihad: The Trail of Political Islam
Take a look at that photo at the top of the article the one used in Maceda’s NBC article. You see a scary looking Salafist “Muslim” wearing a headband written in English. Who do you think that was made to frighten? Who do you think he wore that for? Who do you think paid to have it made?
These sheikist Salafists are considered traitors in every Muslim community because they serve not Allah, but us, the capitalist neoliberal masters who force the imposition of our “stable” economies on millions of Muslims across the globe. They know that we use treachery, deceit, dictators, death squads, and brutality to impose our unique version of predatory capitalism on their nations while stealing the wealth right out from under them leaving them impoverished and desperate, struggling for every meal. And they blame the opportunistic sheikists for ushering them into their homes.
And what is the immediate result of this so-called “uprising” and unrest in these targeted countries? The Obama administration is now justified in sending in troops on the ground, warships off their coasts, and drones to fly overhead launching Terror Tuesday attacks on people opposed to our imperialist agenda.
The result is exactly what the other Muslims hate the sheikists for… bringing the Americans into their country.
By fingering these sheikists, Maceda has come as close as any MSM apologist to admitting that it is our leaders, our Anointed Class, who are the driving force behind this new manufactured Arab Indignatoes Revolution.
Thank you Jim for that unintended validation. unintentionally
