Here’s another reason not too watch the Super Bowl this year: the Sandy Hook Chorus is going to sing America the Beautiful during the opening segment for CBS.
Don’t get me wrong, I like football and I like kids. So this would seem to be a good blend of ridiculous mindless commercialism distraction from the everyday grind of the shrinking neoliberalized economy and the new conquest of Africa campaign, right?
But nothing and I mean NOTHING on “AdV” with a better than crap rating can be free of propaganda these days. Anything you watch HAS to have some CIA spin-doctor’s seal of approval on it, or it just doesn’t get aired. Period.
So, they’re shipping some kids from Sandy Hook elementary down to the sight of the big game and dressing them up and putting them on display in order to try to USE THEM and the memory of their dead classmates to try to
shame convince the American public that anyone who supports the notion of maintaining their constitutional rights is an extremist who hates children.
It’s sickening when you think about it. These kids will surely know the only reason they are there is because their friends are dead. How do you think that will make them feel? But that doesn’t matter to the PR geniuses who run this country. Like the staged tearing down of the Saddam statue, these kids and the Super Bowl make for a perfect “target of opportunity” in their ongoing Info War against the American people and so to them it’s perfectly acceptable.
The radio stations and opinion makers are already prepping the narrative as well.
This morning driving in here I heard a radio host talking about this and saying it’s too bad there is such a thing as the internet because she fears that there will be those who harp on the fact that the kids don’t sound very good or lip-sync it or something and they should just shut up because they are kids from Sandy Hook. She actually said it’s too bad the internet exists.
Sometimes I think that movie Idiocracy has already come true.
The idea that free and open expression of one’s first amendment rights is a “bad thing” is kinda scary if not outright mundane. Dipshits like this radio personality (some woman down here in Tampa) who in one minute praise the 1st amendment victory when Bubba the Love Dickhead wins his civil case then in the next curse the ability for average folks to speak their mind about the Superbowl sideshows is just amazing. But, if she were to have the capacity to understand her obtuse hypocrisy with these positions, she probably wouldn’t have ended up being a radio personality.
The measure of how much one actually respects the 1st amendment is whether or not they defend the speech that offends them the most.
This is obvious for most human beings. Not here in America though, the most propagandized nation on the planet. Here, free speech applies to anything that doesn’t upset the status quo or call the prevailing propaganda into question.
Yeah, they are going to drag these kids across the country and doll them up in all American looking little innocent outfits and present them on the grand stage like cardboard cut-outs in an infomercial. Use them like props to sell an agenda.
During their little beautiful America song, they’ll certainly be flashing images of innocent little dead kids and maybe a shot here and there of a deranged maniacal shooter just too scare the public as much as they can. There will be flags waving and maybe a fly-over of some of our wonderful bomber jets in the “missing man” formation. Hell, maybe they’ll bring in a drone or two and laser sight some red, white and blue teddy bears down from the skies for us all to marvel at.
The propagandists are already telling us we can’t be critical of this disgusting mind fuck because some kids got killed by a
CIA asset autistic kid who couldn’t even cook his own meals. Guess I blew that already.
I really hope someone who is good with video editing takes the song sung by these kids and puts it too some really GOOD use like setting it to a video of all the little kids the Obama administration has killed with drone strikes in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Mali and everywhere else the Anointed One chooses on Terror Tuesdays.
That might be effective.
It’s too bad they can’t have that ready and upload it over CBS’s presentation during Super Sunday. Now THAT might be something worth watching the bloated coverage of a pointless football game. Where’s “V” when you need him?
Needless too say, they can keep their Super Bowl and the propaganda that goes with it. I won’t be tuning in.
