This morning I am watching and reading the corporate talking heads rage against Donald Trump’s comments about President Obama and Hillary Clinton being the “founders” of ISIS™. They all say he has “corrupted the conversation” by straying outside the lines of acceptable discourse when it comes to the newest enemy of the state.
On Morning Joe, Scarborough even offered up some acceptable talking points in terms of what folks are allowed too say about the origins of ISIS™ and they were:
- Perhaps we shouldn’t have disbanded the Iraqi army after the
- Obama shouldn’t have pulled troops out of Iraq when the Iraqi leadership (Maliki) demanded we adhered to the agreement and our “national interests” demanded we stayed
- Obama should have bombed the elected government and civilian infrastructure in Syria sooner
This is the acceptable version of what the civil discourse in the country SHOULD be about the rise of what we call ISIS™ according to people paid to establish such perimeters. And they are livid when it comes to condemning a popular public figure when he dares to wander outside those boundaries, the boundaries which, as you can see, still serve our “national interests”. This is what you are ALLOWED to discuss on the news, at the office, at the bar… this is the official truth of ISIS™. It is not the truth but it is the official truth.
As many of you know, the official version of the truth is often quite different from reality. And often times, the further these things are from each other, the more passionately the guardians of the official truth respond when it is challenged.
